Foul Orchard Discussion

for an artifact recursion deck, you don't have many artifacts. If you want to deal damage effectively, then you need more cards that give others evasion (Rogue's Passage is a good start). btw you have two Foul Orchards and Golgari Guildgates. There are some pretty cheap ETB dual lands that you can run as well.

Some cheap land upgrades: Tainted Wood and Llanowar Wastes are a great plus here. Tranquil Thicket and Barren Moor are usually better than Memorial to Unity and Memorial to Folly. Blighted Woodland and Golgari Rot Farm help you ramp even further. Jungle Hollow, Golgari Guildgate and Foul Orchard can fix your mana if needed. Bojuka Bog is a staple utility land against graveyard strategies.

Overall a very solid deck, though you might want to consider replacing Feral Abomination with Tetzimoc, Primal Death, and Skittering Heartstopper with Isareth the Awakener. Tetzimoc, Primal Death, while legendary, is stronger, and it's ability in your hand can be useful against any non-control deck. Isareth the Awakener can help in the grindier games by allowing you to return other creatures that have already died. Also for grindier games, Find / Finality and Golgari Findbroker are worth consideration in the sideboard. Also Golden Demise/Mephitic Vapors/Ritual of Soot in the sideboard for tokens would be pretty good.
As far as budget options, the Statue portion of Status / Statue takes care of most permanents. Cast Down/Walk the Plank will work pretty well against most decks, though Murder is a better creature catchall. And maybe sideboard Plaguecrafter or The Eldest Reborn for planeswalkers. Golgari Guildgate and Foul Orchard can replace Woodland Cemetery and Overgrown Tomb, but then your deck won't be very competitive.

Made a few changes as I have been playing a more and more. I removed the twoCabal Stronghold and replaced them with Foul Orchard. I also added in Duress into the mix and kept Divest as well. playing the two seemed to have worked well in most matches. Other additions included Gruesome Fate, Torgaar, Famine Incarnate, Grunn, the Lonely King, and Broken Bond. Being a newbie, the deck for me has played well and has earned some compliments. Building this deck widened my horizon of MTG, as I began to start reading deeper into each card, analyzing how it will play with other cards.

I've also got some massive plays out of Song of Freyalise, especially when combined with Paradox Engine. Two turns of explosive mana to empty out the graveyard or accelerate Muldrotha onto the field followed by a brutal hit when the third lore counter is added. Then, since they all have vigilance I doo it all over again. Paradox Engine isn't exactly budget friendly, but it will probably do more work than Nissa, Steward of Elements or Fetid Pools if you need to cut for price.

Hey, spells that make Saps at instant with convoke are very good: Sprout Swarm and Scatter the Seeds. Sprout Swarm also has buyback with enough Saps or other green creatures you can continuously make Saps at instant speed. Because convoke works with creatures who first ETB you can tap Saps who are created the same turn their created to pay for a spell with convoke. This can be borderline busted with cards that double tokens like Doubling Season. It's a very strong mechanic with token strategies.
Chord of Calling is the best spell in Commander with convoke, but it's not budget, but if you're willing to splurge a little than I also recommend it. Yavimaya Sapherd is a good three drop with Saps. It's a Fungus and it creates a Sap when it ETB. Regal Force is great budget green draw especially with tokens or other creature heavy strategies like Elves.
There are several budget Golgari dual lands in Commander and even though some ETB tapped that's still better than playing 28x basic lands in the manabase. These dual lands can give you more color fixing to make sure you can consistently make both green and black.
Consider these dual lands:
- Command Tower: best budget land in Commander
- Llanowar Wastes
- Hissing Quagmire
- Tainted Wood
- Golgari Rot Farm
- Foul Orchard
- Jungle Hollow
- Golgari Guildgate
Good luck with your deck.

This looks really good for your first time building a deck!
The one problem I see is Cabal Stronghold. In order to make more mana with it than you would by replacing it with a basic swamp, you need 5 basic swamps in play, but there are only 7 in the whole deck. Basic lands are fine here. If you want to use something else, you could try Memorial to Unity, Hashep Oasis, Ifnir Deadlands, Memorial to Folly, Blooming Marsh, or maybe even Aether Hub or Foul Orchard.
