GoldenDiggle on Pharika, The Enchanter

Hey Spirit! Good to see that you're doubling down on enchantments! I know you're going budget, but you may want some of these!

You have 17 Enchantments in your deck, 7 of them being creatures, +1 for Pharika. ~1/8 of your cards are enchantments. I think you could use more!

Defense of the Heart, Bear Umbra, Rancor, Dictate of Erebos, Grave Pact, Phyrexian Arena, Erebos, God of the Dead, Polluted Bonds, Cryptolith Rite, Tainted Remedy, Evolutionary Leap, Spidersilk Armor, Animate Dead, Burgeoning, and Deathreap Ritual are all pretty solid cards around or under $10 that would fit well in your deck.

Argothian Enchantress, Enchantress's Presence, Shaper's Sanctuary, Harvester of Souls, Abundance, and Skullclamp all help you draw cards pretty easily. I would suggest getting a few of them.

Scute Mob, Managorger Hydra, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, and Ob Nixilis, Unshackled are a few creatures that can get pretty huge. Blade of the Bloodchief and Ancestral Mask will make some stuff pretty big too.

I have particularly found Kruphix's Insight to be pretty good at digging for enchants and filling your graveyard.

Oh, and in case you didn't know, you have 2 Diabolic Tutor on your list right now!

Oh, nice, first time I see another decklist exploiting the Retribution/Undying combo !

I run a decklist of this kind in GB, I play more casually so it's not really worth to share, but I can recommend you some great cards that works well in this archetype :

Evolutionary Leap, Oh my god I love this card, it produces so much value, it's not a free sac outlet, but it can find you a lot of creature while keeping yours on board thanks to undying and retribution. It also participate in combat tricks : " Block, sac to evolution. "

Lightning Coils, a nice alternate wincon, it's kinda slow because it's a 3-drop that does nothing, but when you hit the 5+ charge ( which is not that hard ) you can overwhelm the opponent with a huge attack. Bonus : You can sac the tokens to cards like Evolutionary leap or Scarland Thrinax once you're done with them !

I also like Yahenni, Undying Partisan, can sac for free, grow when the opponent's creatures dies, and even if they don't have much creatures, it's also hard to kill for control player, thanks to indestructible.

I also played my deck as Jund first, but went to BG because it was better for my mana base, there's other interesting cards in red :

Ion Storm, the main reason I tried playing with red, it's nice, but kinda too slow, that's why I ended up switching to BG.

Xenagos, the Reveler, thanks to all those small creatures that stack up easily and doesn't die easily, you can use it's +1 to generate the mana necessary for your biggest threaths. It's 0 is also useful to get some more creatures. And if you ever got to the -6, you'll get yourself an enormous board.

Love Omnath as a commander. He was my second commander I built actually. I'd recommend Tempt with Vengeance in conjunction with Omnath and a sac outlet, you could just win the game. If an opponent is foolish enough to take the offer, you will probably win. Elemental Bond Not only is it on theme, but your 5/5's also say "Draw a card". Evolutionary Leap Another sac outlet Stalking Vengeance Deal 5 more damage when a 5/5 dies Beastmaster Ascension This will allow your already large 5/5's to really end the game Gruul War Chant More 5/5 smash.

Have fun lightning bolting peoples domes off. also, "Not Gruul? THEN DIE!"

Intet's a triggered abilirty, so you have to use Strionic Resonator. Some other good manipulator is Scroll Rack, Evolutionary Leap and realy cheap to cast with intet is Maelstrom Wanderer

Valius on Trostani Life Tokens

Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter for BIG tokens, Mycoloth for LOTS of tokens, Illusionist's Bracers for double Populates, and Evolutionary Leap to turn tokens into creatures you need.

Other less-good-but-still-fun could be Orochi Hatchery to go wide, or Riptide Replicator to go tall.

Obviously if you want to stray from budget a bit there's Rhys the Redeemed, which was one of the best investments I ever made.

wisegreenbean on Angry Omnath Feels the Burn

1 month ago

Could stand a little more targeted removal; it's a dangerous game to rely wholly on burn for that. Beast Within at least, maybe Chaos Warp. Shamanic Revelation is V A L U E, particularly given how weak your card draw is. On that note, Evolutionary Leap, Greater Good, and Skullclamp are all gud. Maybe just wheel if you find yourself really burning through your hand, tho I doubt that.

Soulbright Flamekin seems subpar. Forgotten Ancient is meh for you. Abundance is cool but you can't really count on the sylvan library combo to come out without white, so I'm skeptical. I see the dream for Undergrowth Champion but I feel like it will be underwhelming for you quite often. Oddly enough, I don't know about Xenagos, God of Revels, cuz even though he's crazy, you're usually only ever getting +5/5. And your haste suite is already really good(though I'm surprised to not see Lightning Greaves).
