multimedia on Tuvasa Enchantments

1 day ago

Hey, nice budget version of Tuvasa.

Just about the entire budget here is for five cards: Enlightened, Rector, Copy, Karmic and Dryad. If budget is a concern I think you could cut Copy and Karmic of these to clear some price to upgrade the manabase. Low mana cost auras that can give Tuvasa evasion are important otherwise without evasion she's a huge creature who can just be blocked by a token. Rancor is very good, but consider adding the trifecta of budget hybrid Bant colored cost auras? Because Tuvasa is three colors then these auras give her +2/+2 pump as well two other abilities which is good for their mana costs.

Budget cards to consider adding:


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Azorius Guildgate
  • Selesnya Guildgate
  • Simic Guildgate
  • Blossoming Sands
  • Thornwood Falls
  • Tranquil Cove
  • 3x Forest
  • 1x Island
  • Elderwood Scion
  • Mana Bloom
  • Dictate of Kruphix
  • Omen of the Hunt
  • Ashiok's Erasure

Good luck with your deck.

multimedia on Tyrannosaurus Flex (Gishath)

4 days ago

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.

multimedia on Ghired: All Tokens Welcome!

3 weeks ago

Hey, nice budget version of Ghired.

Dolmen Gate and Mother of Runes were just reprinted in the Mystery Card Booster set. Gate is good with Ghired letting you safely attack with him to populate. As long as Ghired is attacking in combat any creature that blocks him will not do damage to him. Reconnaissance is the more expensive price card that also does this and it has the bonus of being able to untap your creatures to use them as blockers.

Mother of Runes can be repeatable protection for Ghired from targeted removal or in combat or make him unblockable. Gate and Mother could replace Colossal Majesty and Parhelion II.

Breath of Fury is a budget card that's deceptively powerful with tokens especially with Ghired. Fury is a infinite attack combo with Ghired and one Rhino token as long as Ghired is safe to attack and the Rhino token will do combat damage to a player. Enchant the Rhino token with Fury, attack with Ghired and Rhino. Enchanted Rhino does combat damage to a player, sac it and then enchant the newly created Rhino token. Untap your creatures and attack again. This is infinite attacks as long as Ghired can popluate the Rhino each attack. Fury could replace Soul Foundry.

When playing heavy green then take more advantage of green mana dorks. Mana dorks are some of the strongest cards in green. They're better in green for ramp than mana rocks and land ramp spells.

These mana dorks could replace Circuitous Route, Explosive Vegetation, Selesnya Guildgate, Gruul Guildgate. Eladamri's Call, Idyllic Tutor and Open the Armory are three budget tutors to consider adding. Each one gets a different card, but it's still helpful to have tutors. These tutors could replace Commander's Sphere, Selesnya Signet and Desolation Twin.

Exotic Orchard, Battlefield Forge, Fortified Village and Ash Barrens are budget lands to consider adding. They could replace Kazandu Refuge, Rugged Highlands, Blossoming Sands, Graypelt Refuge.

Good luck with your deck.

AllMyPlantsAreDead on Trostani

Canopy Vista, Sunpetal Grove, Wooded Bastion, Sungrass Prairie, Fortified Village, Horizon Canopy, Brushland, Windswept Heath, Temple Garden, and of course Savannah...

Likely you'll be priced out on some of these, and you may not even want to pick them all since some make others slightly weaker... but these are all worth thinking about. Not exhaustive, but I favored the cards that let you play your spells "on time". (I.e. I gravitated away from the duals that etb tapped.)

multimedia on Budget Chulane

1 month ago

Hey, the manabase could use some improvements. To clear some deck price for land upgrades could cut Karametra, God of Harvests, Protean Hulk and Path to Exile. This would provide about $24 to use to improve the manabase.

More mana dorks are good here because they ramp and trigger Chulane. This kind of ramp is better than land ramp spells that only search for basic lands.

Whitemane Lion is a good creature with Chulane because it has flash. Eladamri's Call is a powerful budget creature tutor. Neoform is another powerful budget tutor that puts the creature you tutor for onto the battlefield. Wargate can tutor for any permanent card and put it onto the battlefield. Cards to consider cutting for these are: Baloth Woodcrasher, Moldgraf Monstrosity, Eternity Vessel, Walking Atlas.

Good luck with your deck.

I first want to say this is a beautiful deck. You have obviously thought out what you want your play style to be like, and I encourage you to stay on that road for your deckbuilding.

The major issue I see is with your mana base. I can tell you are building on a budget, but beyond expensive dual lands, there are other options that won't slow you down like what you are using now. I hope some of my suggestions will work with what you are willing to spend.

I would urge you to cut out all lands that come into play tapped except Seaside Citadel and Cathedral of War. Here is what you can use instead : Every commander deck needs a Command Tower; Bountiful Promenade and Sea of Clouds, provided you are in a multiplayer group, Glacial Fortress, Sunpetal Grove and Hinterland Harbor that work well if you use a lot of basic lands, Mystic Gate, Wooded Bastion and Flooded Grove can provide colorless at first and are also great mana-fixers. Port Town and Fortified Village could be viable options. You should also run Krosan Verge and Myriad Landscape.

Sigil of the Nayan Gods doesn't seem to bring much value; I would replace it with Dueling Grounds that ties in directly with your Exalted strategy.

Shalai, Voice of Plenty would be great in here, maybe instead of Appeal / Authority.

Harmonize is just not a very good card, with a single use effect; I would replace it with Rhystic Study or Smothering Tithe in a heartbeat. Or with anything else for that matter.

I am sure it is again a question of price, but the obvious omission here is Noble Hierarch. So sad to see a nice Exalted deck missing that piece.

Finally I would ask myself how essential is Tamiyo in here, and are there other Planeswalkers taht would add more value?

Hoping some of this is useful,

Cheers!

@Jasmo2881, thanks for the feedback, good luck with your tournament!

I'm only running 1 Castle Ardenvale because we need to keep our forest and plains count high enough to consistently have Fortified Village and Sunpetal Grove enter untapped, and extra copies would have to replace basic plains to keep enough dual lands for good consistency in the mana base.

Hexaflexagon on The Guardians of Thune (Selesnya Version)

Hey Esbilon,

Thanks for your continued help and feedback on my two Pioneer decks, I really appreciate it. I also apologize for the late response, this is my first week in a new school. Yea I think I've found a better angle on my original deck, making it two colours definitely feels more consistent and better against my bad matchups.

You're right in saying that I should split Llanowar Elves and Elvish Mystic, so I'll do that. I chose Nylea, Keen-Eyed and Ripjaw Raptor over the Heliod-Balista combo because the latter is pretty expensive and I think that Ripjaw Raptor will really help my aggro matchup. Even though I know that Nylea won't be a creature most of the time, I still think she's worth it, due to her activated as well as her passive. In her place, however, I could add in something like Gisela, the Broken Blade, Rhonas the Indomitable, or Verdurous Gearhulk. I could even take out Board the Weatherlight and add in some of these, which is what I'll think I'll do. I like Cast Out because it allows me to cycle it, as well as having flash.

I like Sunpetal Grove because if I don't have a land in hand, I can play it without it coming in untapped. But you might be right in saying that I'll probably need Fortified Village so I'll test it out. I've talked about Sylvan Caryatid before and I think I agree with you now, so I'll add it to my next order.

Thanks again,

Hexaflexagon
