hkhssweiss on Enchantress Tuvasa

18 hours ago

Yo meatman87, for a competitive Tuvasa Enchantress deck, I would definitely do some reworks and go a bit more into the taxing route. Some cards I would add in already that comes to mind is:

I would also reconsider adding in Mystic Remora , it is a great card that slows down other competitive players or force you to gain card draw which is important. You should also consider other avenues to winning with Tuvasa as your 3rd line to winning if all else fails. You can do something akin to Enchanted Evening / Aura Thief or Cleansing Meditation . Three part combo with that as well as Calming Verse / Faith's Reward / Teferi's Protection . Enchanted Evening also goes well to make infinite tokesn with Ajani's Chosen .

Another line you can also go for in the Blind Obedience + Bloom Tender / Pemmin's Aura / Freed from the Real infinite extortion win. There are also cards that don't make sense with the current build so these would be the cards I would recommend cutting.

The cards I mentioned above either doesn't have a place in the deck your going for or isn't further accelerating your game plan. What you want to do assuming is to accumulate resources and value ahead of your opponent while preventing them to do anything. I would also say that you wouldn't actually need JTMS, Mother of Runes or Noble Hierarch as they won't trigger your draw. You also might want to consider adding in a High Market to have a kill switch for your Academy Rector . You have a couple avenues of fetching for it in the forms of Crop Rotation as well as Wargate when you add the latter in. Sylvan Scrying might also not be a bad add in as it can fetch you your Reliquary Tower / Serra's Sanctum and if you want to consider adding in Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , those are all valuable targets.

Lemme know if you have any questions on the card reasoning or if somehting doesn't make sense to ya!~

triproberts12 Hey Bud! Just got back from an FNM and played three games of commander. First I played Omnath, Locus of Rage and I won! That's the first time I've ever played the deck against anyone but running it through myself! Then I played two games of Gishath, Sun's Avatar and it ran well, came a close second twice so fair to say the decks performed well! Managed to trade for an Exploration so I've popped that in. I feel like I should retire the deck now as it's undefeated! Hehehe maybe not it was too much fun, and I was taken aback with how explosive the deck was in the later game. Cheers for all the help, it paid off!

Makes sense. I'm not running land recursion in Tatyova Druids. Since it functions more like an Elfball deck, the margins are obviously going to be a bit different. I love me some Hour of Promise , because Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is basically Gaea's Cradle in that deck. I do think you should run Hunting Wilds and Ranger's Path over Explosive Vegetation and Circuitous Route , though. You've got 3 Mountain Forests, so it seems to be all upside. And, yeah, I'm in the same boat with owning Burgeoning , but not Exploration $$$

hkhssweiss on Tuvasa - Aura Voltron

2 days ago

Yeah jakris37, I've been playing with my Tuvasa deck quite a bit lately and the one thing that always needs to be known is that Tuvasa needs her protection package. I do not like using any ramp that is over 3 CMC for her, it's a waste of a slot and usually on T3 it should be casting Tuvasa or an enchantress. Wild Growth , Utopia Sprawl , or Fertile Ground are actually the only one I run for ramp. My other includes actuallt Exploration or Burgeoning .

For voltron Aura package, you only need a few enchantments to make Tuvasa a literal threat and I up the density of enchantments, I don't care for playing much creatures as most of the time I'll try give her vigilance so she can block and attack. Life loss isn't a problem since there are so many ways to give her lifelink to recuperate them all back. The thing I found out for her is that, the lower the curve, the better. The more cards you have in your hand, the better. Not running out of low enchantments to cast, is also better.

Hope that helps and feel free to ask any questions, I been doing some extensive testing with her.

triproberts12 Thanks! These are all cards that I've tried out which shows that we're own a similar page!

Exploration is excellent, but I don't own a copy and it is expensive.

Verdant Confluence I found a little expensive and that I didn't need the recursion it offers.

Pir's Whim I found good, but I haven't played it in a game yet so I'm finding it difficult to tell whether it's worth it and what to cut. I agree it's underplayed!

I don't think I need the tutoring of Hour of Promise unless I run Gaea's Cradle , and that ones a little out of my budget! I don't lean very heavily on Kessig Wolf Run or Temple of the False God .

I didn't find the panorama's very good! The point you make about being able to have them on the field before getting Omnath, Locus of Rage to the battle field is a good one, so I might need to test them out again, but the no cost of Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds is incredible in combo with Ramunap Excavator and Crucible of Worlds , especially with Exploration type effects.

I only recently got my hands on a copy of Ashnod's Altar so I think I should put World Shaper back in as Splendid Reclamation is one of the best cards in the deck, thanks for reminding me!

Field of Ruin actually ramps everyone else which I didn't get when I read the card, and I don't think I need anymore land destruction as Strip Mine has done the job for me, but I will consider it if I think I need more in future.

Explosive Vegetation I think actually has a home here, and is hence an exception to the article! He mentions that it shouldn't be in the other Omnath though! The two landfall triggers are much better than the one of a Rampant Growth .

Bane of Progress is in the sideboard for that reason. I normally prefer a Vandalblast though in most situations.

Cheers! Appreciate the help!

P.S. Roil Elemental is blue unfortunately! Haha one of those days eh?!

This deck definitely looks a lot more tuned. Good stuff. You might consider Exploration if you find Burgeoning performs well. I really like Verdant Confluence in my Tatyova deck. I don't have a lot of room for recursion, so it's function as a split card is great. Pir's Whim is another new card that has overperformed for me for the same reason. Like with Gishath, I think this deck is a good candidate for Hour of Promise you can get your (vomit) Temple of the False God to get directly to Omnath Mana, as well as Kessig Wolf Run .

I like Naya Panorama and Jund Panorama better than Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse in 2-color landfall decks. Your mana is slanted super hard green, so if you don't need a red source, it comes in untapped, PLUS you can hold off on sac'ing it until you have your commander out. I've found that Bant Panorama and Grixis Panorama have overperformed in Tatyova for me for those exact reasons.

World Shaper is a Splendid Reclamation on a stick, so that's a thing. Field of Ruin would also be a great card to deal with troublesome lands. If you like Fires of Yavimaya , the new Rhythm of the Wild is better, or a second copy is you like both- they even stack well. Finally, I would keep in mind that EDHREC article about land ramp, since I see Explosive Vegetation lurking here, as well.

As for cuts, I'm a little less confidant on that one. I've never played against Angry Omnath, so you're in a better position to know what you're unhappy to see. Good luck!

Have you looked into running Exploration over Burgeoning ? Since you can use Exploration to get more card draws from your graveyard with Ramunap Excavator unlike Burgeoning . Overall looks like a fun casual deck with lots of good value.
