Hey there! Lands are a truly important aspect of commander, and I recommend some of the following!

multimedia on Zagras EDH Deck

Hey, nice start on budget. Kyle_Winter gave you some good advice to help the party. My advice is to help the manabase, ramp and draw.

First, you don't need 42 lands, that's overkill for your deck. 36 lands should be fine. Consider cutting some lands for more ramp sources? Budget lands and ramp to consider adding:

Consider cutting some basic lands for these lands?


Ramp can be a problem with Rakdos because these colors lack lots of options, but one way to help to not miss land drops is to play low mana cost draw. Cards like these can replace ramp because for a low mana cost they can help to draw into lands or party members who then act like ramp to cast Zagras.

Repeatable draw sources are best in Commander because they can potentially give you value throughout the entire game. With Zagras cards that give you value who are party creatures or when you attack/do combat damage are options:

Oddsmaker and Mask are nice with Zagras because he has flying.


Some advice about game play. I would keep the mana curve very low because you want to assemble a party for Zagras as that's what makes Zagras a mana efficient and potentially good Commander. The lower the mana curve the easier it will be to have two or more party members on the battlefield to help to cast Zagras. In fact, for your deck I would end the curve at Dagger Caster and Drana, the Last Bloodchief as these are abilities and effects at the top that go well with Zagras. I would limit the four drops to very few.

Roving Keep is an example of a creature you don't need because it's high CMC and doesn't help the party or have interaction with Zagras. Zof Consumption is an example of a spell that you don't need even though if you want can play it as a tapped land. Consumption for six mana is not worth what it does.

I offer more advice about what cards to cut. Would you like more advice?

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, well done for your first deck from scratch.

Some cards within the current budget to consider adding:

Could add all these cards for about $26.

Cards to consider cutting:


Worldgorger Dragon is a tricky combo to assemble because Worldgorger needs to be in your graveyard to reanimate it with Animate Dead. You don't want to ever cast it from hand or cheat it onto the battlefield with Kaalia. Sneak Attack cheating it on the battlefield is fine because then it will end up in your graveyard and you get your permanents back. You want to get Worldgorger into your graveyard and the best budget card that can do that is Buried Alive.

Currently here Angel of Despair is the easy win condition with the Worldgorger combo by destroying all your opponents permanents. But what happens if Despair is disrupted or exiled? Kaalia, Zenith Seeker can be a more complex enabler with the combo needing haste for all the creatures you put into your hand and get onto the battlefield. Bogardan Hellkite can be another easy, even truer, win condition with the combo because it does damage to each player each time it ETB which will be infinite damage with the combo.

Good luck with your deck.

DemMeowsephs on Long Live the Monarch

Hey there! I think I can help a bit regarding your mana base. Let's take a look at that.

You have 26 lands, out of 100 cards, but your average mana cost is 3.72!!!! Usually you run about 30-32 if your mana cost is even at 2.20, so in my opinion, your deck needs A LOT more lands, and ramp. Let's take a look at lands first!

Lands

Ok, so there are MANY MANY lands you should use that you are missing. Our goal should be for you to include at minimum 33 lands. I understand it will be hard to find cards to take out but trust me- you need at least 33 otherwise it'll be very difficult for your deck to even function. You should include the following.

  • Shock lands. If you need mana THAT turn, they can come in untapped! If you don't want to take the damage you don't have to, but you'll always have the option to which makes them so good. They can also be used with fetch lands, but more on that later
  • Godless Shrine
  • Blood Crypt
  • Sacred Foundry

  • Fetch Lands! These are pretty much the best lands in magic. You can look for ANY colors you need, if you have the shock lands I just mentioned. The fetch lands can search for the shock lands, allowing you to get WHATEVER COLOR YOU NEED. They can also search for basics which is less helpful but still possible. They can also search for Savai Triome. (They search for anything that has a subtype they specify)

  • Marsh Flats
  • Bloodstained Mire (Budget: Rocky Tar Pit)
  • Arid Mesa

  • Fast lands! These are extremely useful the first couple turns, and they help you set up your board quickly so you can have a good start!

  • Concealed Courtyard
  • Blackcleave Cliffs
  • Inspiring Vantage

  • Filter lands! You have the red/white version- but not the rest! Add all three! They can give you any combination of the two colors they supply, which is extremely useful! They are also very cheap with double masters out- so get them soon!

  • Fetid Heath
  • Graven Cairns
  • Rugged Prairie

  • Pain and Horizon Lands! These are AMAZING because you can always rely on them for mana, without worrying if they come in tapped- at the expense of only ONE LIFE. Remember your life is a resource- if you win at 1 life it's the same as winning at 40. Getting good mana is much more important than paying some life.

  • Caves of Koilos or Silent Clearing
  • Sulfurous Springs or [No Card Exists Yet]
  • Battlefield Forge or Sunbaked Canyon

  • Check lands. Now these I would recommend not using, but if you have a budget and you want to improve your manabase, these are much better than what you have now.

  • Isolated Chapel
  • Dragonskull Summit
  • Clifftop Retreat

  • Battlebond/C Legends Lands! Some of these aren't out yet, but be sure to get them if you normally play with multiple players!

  • Vault of Champions (COMES OUT SOON)
  • Luxury Suite
  • Spectator Seating (COMES OUT SOON)

  • So in the end, these lands are VERY VERY VERY helpful and make your manabase much faster. There are also a BUNCH of single lands that are even better than some of these! Try to include as many as you can of the following:

  • Ancient Tomb

  • Prismatic Vista
  • Fabled Passage
  • City of Brass
  • Mana Confluence
  • Reflecting Pool
  • Exotic Orchard
  • Strip Mine/Wasteland
  • Forbidden Orchard
  • Gemstone Mine
  • Gemstone Caverns

  • So again, I would try to include many of these, and trust me- aim to have 33-35 lands in your deck. A lot of your lands come in tapped- slowing you down and making your manabase worse. Take those out. A couple lands could be replaced with better things. (Temple of the False God for Ancient Tomb). Take those out. You also have some good lands that don't relate to your deck. I get Boseiju, Who Shelters All and Eiganjo Castle (Etc) are cool, but they don't really make sense in your deck, and could be replaced with cards I mentioned before. To make a good deck you need a good mana base, and I recommend making that mana base, and definitely adding more lands in general.

If this helps be sure to check out and support some of my decks like Double Trouble EDH and A Deal With the Devil EDH! if you have any questions about what I wrote, want more help, or want some ideas, feel free to ask me on my wall or just tag me here, I'd love to help! Anyways, I hope this helps, good luck on your deck, and have a great day!!! Happy tapping!

Rather than checklands and OG Duals, with Woodland Cemetery, Taiga, Rootbound Crag, Dragonskull Summit, Bayou, and Badlands, you can use the following package:

Hey, nice budget version, good change to Korvold from Prossh.

Tireless Tracker, Mystery Card Booster version, may be out of budget range, but in my opinion it's the best casual value creature with Korvold. Repeatable source of creating permanents that can sac (Clues) just by playing a land. Clues can be a backup repeatable draw source if Korvold is disrupted. Awakening Zone was just reprinted in Double Masters. Eldrazi spawn tokens can sac themselves for colorless mana. Dreadhorde Invasion can be another repeatable source of a token to sac to Korvold.

One drop Bloodsoaked Champion has good interaction with Korvold as a repeatable creature to sac. Attack with Korvold sac Champion and since Korvold attacked you can reanimate Champion for . Reassembling Skeleton also does this, but you can reanimate Skeleton at any time.

Orcish Lumberjack is another one drop who can sac a Forest to make three mana. This interaction is very good with Korvold and Ramunap Excavator. Viscera Seer, Caustic Caterpillar and Spore Frog are other good one drops with Korvold because they can sac themselves. Seer can be a repeatable sac outlet that can also help to setup your draws with Korvold since you can scry before you draw.

Korvold's draw ability goes well with Jolrael, Mwonvuli Recluse and Mad Ratter since on your turn if you draw at least one card with Korvold then you make a Cat or two Rats. These creatures also trigger on opponents' turns if you draw two or more cards which is very possible since can sac at instant speed, good with Clues and Eldrazi spawns.

Some budget land upgrades to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

DemMeowsephs on Prossh Food Chain

G'day mate! I might have some suggestions that could help you out, so let's start off looking at your mana base. You run a LOTTTT of lands that come in tapped. In my opinion- you should ditch them all. So what could you add-in? Some of these are kind of pricy, but as you build this deck more definitely consider some of these land options.

There are also some VERY good ramp options in your colors! Ramp is very important, and I would consider all of these

Now I know that's a lot, and a lot in money, but I promise you its a big step in helping your deck perform a lot better. Once you have a good mana base, things will come a lot easier. If you ever need to find cards to put in Proshh, I recommend checking out EDHREC, which gives you many helpful suggestions for every commander. (Click here to go to your commander on edhrec. If this helps, be sure to check out and like some of my decks, (Double Trouble EDH, A Deal With the Devil EDH, and many more! Anyways though, good luck on your deck, hope this helps, and have a great day!!! Happy tapping!

MTGBurgeoning on Scion of the Ur-Dragon: Every. Dragon. Ever.

1 month ago

Changes are coming to this Scion of the Ur-Dragon EDH/Commander deck!

The ten check lands (Glacial Fortress, Drowned Catacomb, Dragonskull Summit, Rootbound Crag, Sunpetal Grove, Isolated Chapel, Clifftop Retreat, Sulfur Falls, Hinterland Harbor, Woodland Cemetery) are being replaced by the following:

  1. Indatha Triome

  2. Raugrin Triome

  3. Zagoth Triome

  4. Savai Triome

  5. Ketria Triome

Introduced in Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths, the triomes are more versatile than the check lands. Each offers an additional color and are perfect targets for our fetch lands. In fact, any turn 1-3 fetch lands should target triomes. Additionally, late game we can cycle an unwanted triome and draw a card, an ability previously missing in the deck.

  1. Mana Confluence

  2. Exotic Orchard

  3. Unclaimed Territory

For the cost of one life, Mana Confluence gives us one mana of any color. In the best case scenario, Exotic Orchard will act as Command Tower #2. In the worst case scenario, Exotic Orchard is worthless. In the most likely scenario, Exotic Orchard will be closer to a Command Tower than a useless rectangle of cardboard. Unclaimed Territory limits our colored mana to casting only dragons, but still provides for our non-dragon spells.

  1. Fellwar Stone

  2. Smothering Tithe

Including Fellwar Stone and Smothering Tithe increases our ability to ramp. Fellwar Stone is an artifact version of Exotic Orchard while Smothering Tithe taxes each opponent with for each card drawn. Failure to pay the tax gifts us with a Treasure. Slimming the land count from 40 to 38 by adding artifact/enchantment ramp is noteworthy. It's an attempt to cast Scion of the Ur-Dragon more quickly and try to outpace our opponents.

A few other changes:

  1. Fierce Guardianship replaces Chromium the Unmutable. Chromium the Unmutable was slotted into this deck in order to protect Scion of the Ur-Dragon. It costs a card to do it, but in the end after activating Scion of the Ur-Dragon and becoming a copy of Chromium the Unmutable our General/Commander will have hexproof until the end of turn. I believe Fierce Guardianship can protect Scion of the Ur-Dragon better.

  2. Guardian Project replaces Steel Hellkite. Removal is strong in our deck? Card draw is not. In order to add the awesome card-drawing ability of Guardian Project, we remove Steel Hellkite. This exchange was not difficult, as activating Scion of the Ur-Dragon to become a copy of Steel Hellkite was as rare as winter roses.

  3. Rhystic Study replaces Wipe Away. I'm pretty sure our lack of card draw was documented earlier. By adding Rhystic Study, we add one of the best card-drawing spells in our format. Our removal is strong, and swapping out a removal spell for Rhystic Study is warranted.

To summarize:

Our land count dropped from 40 to 38, but gained more versatility throughout the mana base.

Our number of dragons dropped from 28 to 26.

Our number of ramp/card-draw spells increased by four (Fellwar Stone, Smothering Tithe, Guardian Project, Rhystic Study).

Collectively I believe that these 13 changes make the deck stronger and more balanced. What do you think?
