Distant Melody Discussion

I feel your pain on losing Leovold, Emissary of Trest as the commander. I had to switch to Damia as well due to the banning. Otherwise, maybe a Shamanic Revelation and/or Distant Melody for crazy card draw? I run them in conjunction with cards like Glimpse of Nature and similar affects in my elf deck and they help end the game super fast.

I like that you are running Tormod's Crypt rather than Relic of Progenitus. In creature heavy elves Lead the Stampede can be faster than Distant Melody, and easier to cast.

As for possible cuts, I don't love Distant Melody just because it doesn't save you when you're down, and people can kill some creatures in response. Psychic Drain is also underwhelming. I like Increasing Ambition more than Diabolic Tutor, but you could always run both. If you do, you can probably cut one of your board wipes since you'll have 2 and the tutors to grab them

Hey, I suggest cutting a few Slivers, 46 is a lot, for some staple Commander removal and creature tutors that help you to find the important Slivers: Gemhide, Heart, Crystalline and Hivelord before you get Overlord into play.

You could cut 12 or more of the less good Slivers and be fine since Overlord is a Silver tutor then you don't have to focus as much having a huge number of Silvers you can instead play the best Slivers because you can tutor for them.

Consider adding these cards:

33 total lands is on the low side for a budget five color manabase. This amount of land would be fine with the Fetch land/Shock land interaction because this gives you plenty of mana fixing, but you're not playing these lands. I suggest 38 total lands, few more Basic lands and replacing the Vivid lands with Tri lands. Tri lands also ETB tapped, but once they untap they can be used for the rest of the game to make one color of three colors to choose from. Vivid lands only give you two turns of any color.

Consider adding:

Less good Slivers to consider cutting:

  • Belligerent Sliver
  • Cautery Sliver
  • Constricting Sliver
  • Darkheart Sliver
  • Hunter Sliver
  • Psionic Sliver
  • Quilled Sliver
  • Sidewinder Sliver
  • Spined Sliver
  • Opaline Sliver
  • Magma Sliver
  • Talon Sliver

A couple of Slivers that have good abilities who I don't see here:

Patriarch's Bidding although not low budget is great to get back all Slivers from the graveyard reanimating them, putting them directly into play. Aphetto Dredging is another option to get back multiple Slivers from the graveyard and put them into your hand. Living Death is another strong card to reanimate Silvers.

Good luck with your deck.

When is this better than the go-wide build with Distant Melody?

How are you casting Distant Melody? It looks like Birchlore Rangers is your only source of blue. Seems like it would be inconsistent.
