Artifact Creature — Shapeshifter

Imprint — When Duplicant enters the battlefield, you may exile target nontoken creature. (The exiled card is imprinted on this artifact.)

greyninja on Is Karametra Good Commander for ...

1 week ago

Go fer Omnath, Locus of Rage ! ! ! (Assuming you want to focus on lands)

Karametra, God of Harvests is cool tho. The wife ran her for a minute when we first got into EDH with friends. I'd say she's more of a support commander that helps you dig for lands as you play creatures from the 99

@TypicalTimmy suggested some good ones. Avacyn, Angel of Hope is another top end beater in that same theme. Depends on budget.

If casting creatures get you lands... then play creatures that toolbox! Lotus Cobra , Beast Whisperer , Reclamation Sage , Thalia, Heretic Cathar , etc. Duplicant is one of my pet cards. Temur Sabertooth for the winmore

Have fun!

Thanks for the suggestions! I actually considered these, but I somehow overlooked them. I'm not sure what they replace, tho... i'm thinking Spirit of the Labyrinth for Duplicant but i'm not sure. Any suggestions?

Noosegraf Mob can get out of hand pretty quick if not dealt with. Duplicant can be used as repeatable exile with Alesha. I see you have Master of Cruelties, but have you met its cousins Ebonblade Reaper and Raving Dead . +1 from a fellow Alesha Fan, so much fun and a versatile commander they can be.

Crucible of Worlds would help with your own discarding to hit your land drops and does double duty with dryad arbor if you have attrition out. I’m also testing Duplicant in my version of this deck as another target for glissa to return.

Mimic Vat and Duplicant go well with the skullclamp and reanimation.

No Sunbird's Invocation or Stranglehold ? Dockside Extortionist ? Humble Defector and Imperial Recruiter ?

Duplicant might be cool. Magus of the Wheel could be helpful if you need more card draw, also Wheel of Fate

How do you deal with enchantments? Ever considered nev disk or o-stone? Maybe even Ugin or Karn Liberated?

Volcanic Offering offers you so much value and politics in 1 card.

I used to run tuk-tuk but I replaced him for Manic Vandal . Comes down more quickly and the lifeloss is negligible.

I really like this deck start. I would add more Wood Elves type cards and have less instants/sorceries. Ex: Springbloom Druid , Farhaven Elf , Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip.

You're talismans are good ramp but are strictly worse than basic signets. I would replace them. In a deck with hefty lifegain they might be better - but i can forsee taking a ton of damage from then.

Terastodon and Venser, Shaper Savant should be mainboarded.

The The Immortal Sun , Guardian Project , Mystic Confluence , Ulvenwald Hydra , Seedborn Muse , Rune-Scarred Demon Muldrotha, the Gravetide , Hornet Queen , Courser of Kruphix , Oracle of Mul Daya ...and anything with Landfall are my least favorite cards for the deck. I think Landfall is an entirely different style this commander can be played with - as in I think it would need support from the entire deck and need to abuse Landfall with more cards. Right now I think the deck has a bigger Control theme. Cards like Roil Elemental or Sire of Stagnation need to be protected - and need an entire support system of counters and Explore and Harrow and Scapeshift and Splendid Reclamation and Crucible of Worlds etc etc.

I think you would benefit more from cards like Equilibrium Treachery Strionic Resonator Lightning Greaves Diluvian Primordial Duplicant Prime Speaker Zegana

Also you can probably go down to 32 lands.

This looks cool. My main comment would be to add some etb land ramp. Like Gus, I think Wood Elves / Farhaven Elf (depending on your mana base) and Springbloom Druid both totally deserve a spot here. Risen Reef also seems really good here. Yarok is an elemental.

I don't love: Duplicant since I think there are better etb options in your colors. Sultai Banner is terrible, especially compared to the ramp I commented above. You really shouldn't need to trade in your mana for cards. I haven't loved Casualties of War in my own decks.
