Forgotten Ancient Discussion

multimedia on Budget Ramos Disco Tribal

Hey, holy shit call this deck "Lucky Charms". That's a lot of Charms.

Currently only at 98 cards you need to add two more cards. I suggest adding Sylvan Caryatid and Fellwar Stone. Budget two drops that can help to fix colors of mana and ramp.

My other budget suggestions are:

Exotic Orchard is a good budget rainbow land.

Forgotten Ancient synergizes really well with Ramos. And considering the five-color creatures you use in this deck, how about Maelstrom Archangel? Have fun!

First of all, Forgotten Ancient is a beast. I would like to know a little bit more about your meta before I comment. What are your opponents running?

Depending on how fast you want to build up the counters there are two different directions I would take this. Red could be added for great cards like Fling Trash for Treasure or Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer If you want to turbo charge your +1/+1 counter engine I would make the deck green black for cards like Corpsejack Menace Forgotten Ancient and Kalonian Hydra Green and black give you access to all the best graveyard shenanigans since this deck needs to make creatures go back and forth from the graveyard to the battlefield. Trading Post is an excellent utility card in this deck as well. If you have the money for a fully tuned 3 color mana base just make the deck green black red to really make it beat face. Hope this was helpful.

Skovtrolden on Ramostly wanna cast spells

Green is an essential color (this was actually a Riku deck before Commander 2017 came out), as green give room for things like Forgotten Ancient, Oracle of Mul Daya, and the single best cantrip of the deck, Benefactor's Draught.

The upside about Ramos is that he costs no colors to play, so it's really easy to play him, and with the right mana fix (which commander have tons of), it's also easy to get all colors represented - plus Ramos got mega-prowess. If I should cut green, i would probably end up using Melek, Izzet Paragon as commander instead

I never took out Guttersnipe either, just changed the version i think?

Sgtpopnfreash I'm not a huge of the Stax plan, though I might give it a try if Tangle Wire didn't cost 5 bucks. Kinda pricey for a significant maybe, I don't have anywhere else to run if I don't like it.

TheWallinator74 I mean sure - Doubling Season is an obvious one, but thanks I guess. I'll put it in my deck if you send me one ;) Meanwhile we wait for a reprint.

I did pick up a Hardened Scales!

Juniper Order Ranger I have but flickers in and out of the deck. I don't feel like it's especially impactful even though I see it in a lot of lists. What do you feel I should take out for it I guess?

Witch-Maw Nephilim feels like a much worse version of Forgotten Ancient, Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker, and Managorger Hydra. I don't see the value in running it, even though I do see it in a lot of lists too.

Death's Presence seems like a budget Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, which is nice - but I already have Reyhan and I don't think it's worth running at 6 mana.

kameenook on cascading into PURE VALUE(most of the time)

In the effort of critiquing, I would imagine Verdant Sun's Avatar isn't very good since it only prevents you from not dying, while it seems your deck profits very well off of killing your opponent as an effective way of not dying. Just in general then I would suggest more fast mana such as Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, Worn Powerstone.

I also think Command Beacon is amazing with Maelstrom Wanderer, as at least when I play a maelstrom deck my favorite thing is to cast it double cascade and hope it dies so that I can cast it again.

Another card I'm just generally a huge fan of is Etherium-Horn Sorcerer, while it doesn't have an ETB ability if you cascade into it it will trigger cascade again allowing you to continue the chain at a lower converted mana cost.

Also don't like Managorger Hydra that much, generally don't like beaters even if they are efficiently costed in commander, maybe Forgotten Ancient would be better, or perhaps more cascade such as Bloodbraid Elf
