Fierce Empath Discussion

Hey, Regal Behemoth may out of the price range, but it's a Dino to have for ramp to curve into Gishath and it has trample. It's not a Lizard it's a Dino, it was errata to Dinosaur three years ago when Ixalan was released. It's an expensive price Dino, but try to make room/budget for it.

Quartzwood Crasher is new budget Dino from Ikoria who's very underrated. It can create many powerful Dino tokens with trample. It has trample and so does Gishath, Ghalta, Zacama, etc. It's pretty bonkers with Ghalta. And gives excellent Dino value for five mana when it has haste from Regisaur Alpha. Quartzwood scales very well and can get out of hand quick for your opponents since it and the token it creates have trample. Rhythm of the Wild is another haste enabler for Dinos and it also protects them and Gishath from being countered when cast.

Elemental Bond can trigger to draw any time a creature you control with 3 or more power enters the battlefield, this includes when a token is created. Bond for a three drop over the course of a game can draw you a lot of cards with Dinos. It's good with Quartzwood. Congregation at Dawn can tutor for and setup the top three cards of your library to be Dinos for when you attack with Gishath. Fierce Empath is not a Dino, but it's a budget creature tutor for one of your best big Dinos, it's worth including especially if you add Regal.

I see Farseek and Nature's Lore, but I only see Stomping Ground dual land that they can search for. That's the advantage of these spells is they can ramp with a dual land which is also color fixing. Cinder Glade and Canopy Vista were just reprinted in Commander 2020. I would make room/budget for these two dual lands. Sheltered Thicket and Scattered Groves are two more budget lands that have two different types. Other budget land upgrades are: Exotic Orchard, Battlefield Forge, Fortified Village, Ash Barrens, Naya Panorama.

Wild Growth, Fertile Ground and Trace of Abundance are three more land auras for ramp and these are upgrades because they're less mana to cast. Beast Within and Generous Gift are versatile instant removal spells in Commander because they can destroy any permanent and giving your opponent a 3/3 doesn't matter much when you have much higher power Dinos.

Good luck with your deck.

Before I make card suggestions, bounce lands require 2 lands return to hand with Yarok. They don't belong in this deck. Get them out!

  1. Command Tower and Bojuka Bog would significantly upgrade the manabase without breaking the bank.

  2. Farseek, Rampant Growth, and Kodama's Reach in favor of Circuitous Route, Explosive Vegetation, and Grow from the Ashes would speed your land acceleration up by 2 turns and giving you more early turn stuff to do, which is always relevant.

  3. Woodland Bellower combos nicely with Fierce Empath, netting 6 cards off 1 creature. That's value!

  4. I see a lack of tutors. Some cheap options are Rune-Scarred Demon, Prime Speaker Vannifar, and Birthing Pod.

  1. Sire of Stagnation fits the landfall theme. He's straight gas and draws 8 cards off 1 opposing fetchland.

  2. Consider adding some more creature removal in the form of Ravenous Chupacabra or Shriekmaw.

  3. Thassa, Deep-Dwelling will further help you abuse ETB effects each turn. Bounce Ravenous Chupacabra each turn to keep the battlefield clear, draw 2 extra cards per turn with Baleful Strix, put 2 more lands in play with Wood Elves, or continuously wipe the opposing board with Massacre Wurm.

  4. I'm seeing a lack of tutors with this deck. I imagine some are too expensive like Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor, which are amazing. Others in the form of Rune-Scarred Demon, Fierce Empath, Woodland Bellower really help the deck find pieces and continue to accelerate their board state without sacrificing anything. Btw, Bellower can find Empath.

  5. Bojuka Bog provides graveyard interaction without affecting consistency. Swap it out for a swamp.

i will look into some lands like you said, but i generally dislike the fact that enter tappped.

Tatyova, Benthic Druid is grate i had it in some iteration and didnt find it did that much tho.

on the 3 point i got a lot of copy effects and common occurance is some etb effects that kill creatures so i prefer the flexibility they give.

might change Lotus Cobra for Fblthp, the Lost since its easier to cast.

Deadeye Navigator is on the maybe board, same with the elves.

i will think on having Fierce Empath on the main again.

i forgot the big boy Woodland Bellowerexisted and will put it in as fast as i can, probably taking out a signet.

should i take out leyline for something else?

For a budget build, this has a majority of the pieces needed to be competitive.

Other cheap options to include:

  1. Get the bounce lands out of the manabase. Returning 2 lands to hand is not what this deck wants to be doing.

  2. Command Tower and Bojuka Bog should definitely be in this manabase.

  3. Mulldrifter and Shriekmaw are great utility spells for this deck. They also trigger Risen Reef.

  4. Woodland Bellower combos with Fierce Empath. Nab Empath + Wood Elves to net 2 lands, Deadeye Navigator, and another fattie. This nets 6 cards off 1 creature cast.

  5. Thassa, Deep-Dwelling will help you further abuse ETB effects. Not exactly dirt cheap, but definitely a staple this deck wants.

  6. Sol Ring belongs in nearly every commander deck. This deck is no exception.

  7. You're going to want a few extra early turn mana acceleration. Sylvan Ranger, Farseek, and Cultivate are good options to accelerate your mana early turns.

  1. Bojuka Bog will provide extra graveyard interaction without affecting consistency.

  2. Tatyova, Benthic Druid is a great 2 way threat... lifegain and card draw.

  3. I think it's a mistake to not run at least one creature removal threat that doesn't target yourself as well... Ravenous Chupacabra, Shriekmaw, etc... Shriekmaw also triggers Risen Reef.

  4. Ice-Fang Coatl, Baleful Strix, and Fblthp, the Lost provide additional 2 mana cantrips. It looks like you're trying to have a low curve, hence this recommendation.

  5. Deadeye Navigator allows for mana infinite combo shenanigans such as drawing your entire deck in one turn with Wall of Blossoms.

  6. Sire of Stagnation is straight gas and draws 8 cards off 1 opposing fetchland.

  7. I'd highly recommend throwing in Wood Elves and Farhaven Elf. Going from 3 -> 5 lands or 4 -> 6 lands is such a tempo play for dropping fatties the following turn.

  8. Fierce Empath is a great tutor effect for this deck, especially late game. Add Woodland Bellower and you can net 6 cards off 1 creature cast. Use the 2nd trigger for Wood Elves. 2 lands + 2 creatures on top of the extra 2.

Hey, nice start and base. Several good cards and interactions here.

Some interesting lower mana cost card interactions for repeatable sac with Korvold that are within the budget:

Invasion and Zone create a token that you can sac each turn when you attack with Korvold. Skeleton and Champion can be a repeatable creature to sac since they can reanimate themselves for two mana. Excavator lets you sac a land which you can play from your graveyard. A repeatable token/creature to sac each turn also good with Evolutionary Leap for one mana to put a creature into your hand.

I'm a big fan of one drop mana dorks when playing so much green and with Korvold. Dorks are ramp to play Korvold faster and then can be sac fodder. Goose is fine, but consider more?

Lumberjack is good with 10x Forests; it can be a repeatable source of sac that also makes mana. It makes it so a single Forest can equal four mana (combination of green/red) since you can tap the Forest to make one green mana before you sac it with Lumberjack. It's good with Ramunap Excavator since then you can play the Forest from your graveyard.

Fierce Empath is a budget creature tutor to get a threat such as Prossh, Skyraider of Kher or Broodmother. After tutoring Empath can be sac fodder. Prossh is powerful with Korvold since it can make a large amount of Kobolds who can be sac fodder and Prossh is also a sac outlet. For six mana if Prossh sacs all the Kobolds created can equal six +1/+1 counters on Korvold and draw six cards. You can even pay more than six mana to cast Prossh to create more than six Kobolds.

Mayhem Devil is very good with all the sacrifice since it triggers for any permanent that's sacrificed including your opponents. Blood Artist is good when sacing creatures.

Could improve the manabase with some budget lands:

Good luck with your deck.

Replace Nature's Lore for Sakura-Tribe Elder, bring at least 1x Krosan Tusker, cut at least 3x Wretched Gryff and 2x Tangle Golem for 2/3x Fierce Empath at least 1X Ulamog's Crusher and some mainboard Pulse of Murasa to retrieve STE and depletion lands, if you pack 4x pulses, you'll probably won't need the food lands, which can slow you down. Nissa's Pilgrimage and Arboreal Grazer are some cards to consider too, along Land Grant. Nissas nets you 3 cards, grazer ramps and stops aggro for a while and land grant is free. Chimeras seem a tad fragile,maybe you can use something like Blastoderm which is also retrievable with Pulse.
