Nemesis on Valduk Commander

1 month ago

Hey There! I've got a few suggestions, but I've never had the chance to play with or against this commander so take my suggestions with a grain of salt. I don't know what your budget is, so I'll start with the more expensive options and go down from there. Here goes:

Hammer of Nazahn - Indestructible is invaluable with voltron style commanders

Champion's Helm - hexproof is also invaluable

Foundry Inspector - makes your equipment cheaper

Chaos Warp - excellent mono red removal

Seize the Day - extra combat

Brass Squire - super cheap, nice with tons of equipment

Jhoira's Familiar - super cheap, makes all your equipment cheaper

Thermopod - interesting choice, can be used to sac all your elemental dudes for a boatload of mana

Burn at the Stake - if you don't swing with your elementals, you can nuke someone out of the game

Relentless Assault - more combats!

Mask of Avacyn - hexproof is very important

Whispersilk Cloak - shroud & Unblockable : be careful with this though, if a creature has shroud, you can't equip stuff to it, so this would have to go on last.

I have a bunch more but i'll hold off until I get a better idea if I'm on the right track. :P

Hey, good budget version of Saheeli. Interesting concept using X spells rather than more big colorless creatures.

Since you're trying to win with X cost instant/soceries then consider adding Mystical Tutor as one of the expensive price cards? Could cut Planar Bridge for it? Bridge is fine to cheat onto the battlefield, but still need to activate it's ability which is a lot. Cards that can recur Mystical such as Mystic Sanctuary and Mystic Retrieval could be added use Mystical again.

Consider adding other budget artifacts or cards that have interaction with artifacts? Cards to consider adding:

Talisman, Chalice and Lens are other budget two drop mana artifacts which are helpful to ramp into four drop Saheeli. Forgemaster and Welder are good when you have a repeatable source of 1/1 Servos. Being able to sac a Servo(s) to cheat a better artifact onto the battlefield. Forgemaster for it's comparable price can do a lot more than Master of Etherium . Because Servos are 1/1s then this makes Skullclamp repeatable draw which is good with Crawler. Skullclamp because you're trying to win with Crawler can do more for the comparable price than Mirage Mirror .


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Cancel
  • Izzet Cluestone
  • Izzet Locket
  • Prototype Portal
  • Planar Bridge
  • Mirage Mirror
  • Master of Etherium
  • Darksteel Juggernaut
  • Metalwork Colossus
  • Hellkite Igniter

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, good job for your first Commander deck. Nice Tezzeret the Seeker :)

When on a budget for the manabase it's better to rely on basic lands and dual lands that have interaction with basic lands. These can replace dual lands that will always ETB (enter the battlefield) tapped such as Azorius Guildgate and Dismal Backwater . The Guildgates and Life lands are not better than a basic land.

Lands within the budget to consider adding:

Land to consider cutting:

  • Azorius Guildgate
  • Dimir Guildgate
  • Dismal Backwater
  • Scoured Barrens
  • Tranquil Cove
  • Jwar Isle Refuge
  • Vivid Creek
  • Dimir Aqueduct
  • Temple of Deceit
  • Temple of Silence

I see too many creatures that don't interact with Alela. Nonartifact/enchantment creatures don't have much interaction with Alela. My advice is cut a lot of these creatures for more artifacts, artifact creatures and enchantments. You have Tezzeret that's a good reason to expand on artifacts.

Lots of mana rocks are good with Alela because they can be used to make ramp to play her faster and then after she's on the battlefield they can create Faeries. I see you have the Signets already which is great, but consider more budget mana rocks?

Three drop mana rocks such as Coalition Relic which you have are fine, but if you can replace a three drop mana rock such as Obelisk of Esper , Mana Geode with a one or two drop mana rock then this will help your deck.

Consider cutting the creature base down to only a few? Keep: Strix, Architect, Shimmer Myr, Simulacrum, Assembly, Master, Seer, Rider, Titan? Can then replace the other creatures with more artifacts/enchantments to make more interaction with Alela.

Cards within the budget to consider adding:

Etherium Sculptor and Foundry Inspector are good as low mana cost artifacts that reduce the mana cost of all other artifacts you cast. CMC artifacts are free for you to cast with one of these on the battlefield which can help to chain cast artifacts and make a lot of Faeries. Casting two drop mana rocks for is also good. Sai, Master Thopterist and Mirrodin Besieged are three drops that any artifact you cast after creates an artifact creature token.

If you're wanting to attack with a large Faerie/Thopter army then Bident of Thassa and Cranial Plating are cards that you want. Bident can be busted repeatable draw with attacking flying creatures. Cranial is good to equip to Alela since she has flying and the damage she does to a player is Commander damage. Throne of the God-Pharaoh is a deceptively powerful two drop artifact with Faeries. The life loss this can do will add up fast since it's repeatable at your end step making all your opponents lose life not just one.

Good luck with your deck.

why aren't you playing some mana reduction? like Foundry Inspector . I also just don't see how Altar of the Brood will be good for you. Jhoira might be ok for you but probably too slow. might want to consider Pithing Needle for sideboard pretty sure planeswalkers are going to be a big thing in this format.
