Knollspine Dragon and Chancellor of the Forge weren't even on my radar, those seem fantastic. Just got a Tempt with Vengeance , so that's great! I already have a Tendershoot Dryad , so perhaps it'll take a slot till I find better alternatives. I've been gravitating towards things like War Cadence , Uphill Battle , Stoneshaker Shaman , Release the Gremlins , Overwhelming Instinct , Druids' Repository and Nacatl War-Pride .

Thanks very much mmcgeach. I appreciate it. It's going to be an experiment to see where the balance is, but I think it'll teach me a lot. If you're interested, I'll share the decklist with you when it's up.

You're missing a bunch of the best dinosaur cards in my opinion

Maybe In

That gets you no where near where you need to be. To me you have too many enchantments might look there more.

You ever thought about using any of these cards before?

Hope that helps!

Hello there! Love your build, however I often find myself a bit short on mana, since I currently can't afford either Bloom Tender nor Noble Hierarch. So I'm currently experimenting with Druids' Repository. What do you think about it? Any other budget-friendly ideas for replacing those cards is most welcome. Thank you!

Thrasios / Tymna has several variants.

Breakfast Hulk is a self-mill combo that can go off with Flash + Protean Hulk, Hermit Druid, or Cephalid Illusionist + Nomads en-Kor. Once it has milled itself itself there are a few different possibilities to include, but all usually involve Dread Return I think.

Paradox Scepter either slams Paradox Engine with a bunch of mana dorks in play and draws a ton of cards with Thrasios, or it plays Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal to make infinite mana and draw the deck with Thrasios. It oftentimes features Vizier of Remedies + Devoted Druid as another way to get infinite mana (and draw the deck with Thrasios).

I play Aluren combo, but it's not quite cEDH. I'm on a budget and Aluren is not as good as other options.


Najeela has a couple ways it can make infinite combat phases. Druids' Repository, Sword of Feast and Famine, Nature's Will all allow the player to make 5 mana each combat.


Teferi chain veil is a deck. It incorporates stax pieces to slow the game down before comboing. I don't know enough about cEDH to say anything more.

I don't really know anything about Gitrog.

SynergyBuild on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

ThatGrimGuy - I could go on about mulliganning with Sisay and Gitrog and how fast they could win, even give stats on specifics, but I think that wouldn't be doing you justice.

I love Jhoira, it is a storm deck with a crazy powerful commander, two synergistic artifact colors, and the ability to run Mox Amber to its fullest extent, a card that screams commander, yet cannot be played in a variety of decks for many reasons. Captain Sisay actually also uses it to a great extent, abusing the commander that can fetch it because it is legendary to cast cards off of Paradox Engine, but again, that is besides the point.

Jhoira commonly needs to be all in to often storm off perfectly, and though by using Retract, Hurkyl's Recall, and Rebuild effects you can increase the amount of cards you draw to keep going off. Using effects that reduce mana costs is the backbone of the deck, and it is easy to see why this works when your commander can be cast using the artifacts you storm off with after she hits.

The issue comes with not depleting resources before you cast Jhoira, keeping jhoira on the field, meaning you have to run enough countermagic and removal to stop opposition, and also have enough to storm off after her, not fizzling when you draw dead lands or dead interaction. This balance requires a lot of work on the pilot to know when you have to mulligan to find more interaction. This isn't easy even for the best pilots in the best decks for the list.

Compare that to a stax deck that can shut off this deck with a well positioned Force of Will, Silence, Swords to Plowshares, or Dismember can not only stop you for a turn, but for many until you can rebuild at which point if a Rule of Law or Arcane Laboratory, Damping Matrix, Thorn of Amethyst, Sphere of Resistance or other random stax card hits you your out until you find an answer, of which your deck needs to run little of for fear of drawing too many when you try to combo out.

Not to menton some stax is anti-artifact, Kataki, War's Wage, Stony Silence, Null Rod, and a lot others will be nearly impossible to win through. The same is true for a lot of decks, but storm in particular due to their reliance on engines like Jhoira, Ad Nauseam or even Paradox Engine itself. These cards have answers, and will almost always lose given that the answer is found. It is sad, but the issue with storm.

Jeleva, Kess, and Yidris storm run tutors and are in black to make up for this, finding their engine before the opposition can answer it, but the card they find it Ad Nauseam, whereas even though Jhoira has already been found, being the commander of the deck, creatures are the easiest things to remove, and this is at sorcery speed to cast, so is weak to everything in essence. This means it is a weak engine, but still fast.

The biggest issue with Jhoira I haven't gone over though. Storm decks run storm cards. They run cards like Brainstorm, Dark Ritual, and Manamorphose if they are in color, these cards let you storm off with or without the engine, Kess Storm can go off with just some good cards in hand, Jhoira cannot do that. You can't storm off with Mana Crypt, Sol Ring, Lotus Petal, and a Sensei's Divining Top, it just doesn't work, but with Jhoira it is a perfect kind of hand, you can get her out turn one and have mana up for more stuff, however if your engine is off to any reason, the deck sucks really bad, as sad as it is.


Sisay is a stax deck, not a combo deck, I mean it runs a combo, but that is a finisher after it combos out, you can read more on it, but you are right, it isn't fast, control decks aren't often.

The combo is two turn win, Sisay hits, next turn you fetch Paradox Engine, cast it, cast something, untap sisay, fetch Mox Amber, then Mox Opal, Seton, Krosan Protector, fetch Bontu's Monument, Bow of Nylea, and Mikaeus, the Lunarch, let Mike die, get 3, use bow to put Mike on the bottom, fetch it, then loop this. Monument kills by draining each opponent.

This is all fetchable from the command zone, but also so it stax pieces like Linvala, the Preserver, Kataki, War's Wage, protection like Dosan the Falling Leaf and Yavimaya Hollow and removal like Mangara of Corondor. This outclasses Jhoira on the basis of straight consistency.

Frogger isn't my forteit, so I cannot vouch for it, but going against the deck is rough in many cases, it storms off through the graveyard, so my removal doesn't work. More in-depth descriptions elsewhere are on how it is so fast, but it uses a discard outlet and Frogger to cycle it's deck infinitely, a twocard combo with the commander, of which there are 7 or so other halves. That is insane consistency for combo decks often. Ask someone else for details.

Najeela can be made super fast, control, stax, what have you, it is a five color general with many two card combos with the commander, so that the deck is able to be blisteringly fast, or a slower deck, it is fully up to the pilot, unlike other decks in which the best variants are known. Druids' Repository is a great enchantment that goes through most stax, and it the most popular combo with najeela. She also is 3 mana, and has an occasional win under stax if the commander can just swing around like a kreno deck that doesn't die to Cursed Totem.


I hope you understand my take on this issue, and have cleared up the inherit flaws on jhoira and the reason some decks are better than it, not to say it is trash, just that as is, the deck isn't great in the meta.

My Atraxa deck found the following the best mana sources:

Pentad Prism

Gemstone Array

Crystalline Crawler

Workhorse

Druids' Repository

They all can be accessed at instant speed, multiple times a turn, especially if you have extra proliferation in the deck, and they all work incredibly well with cards like Winding Constrictor, Inexorable Tide, and Pir, Imaginative Rascal

Several times I've gotten 2 of these into play, and with something like the Tide in play, I've never had any mana problems whatsoever.
