Good-Fortune Unicorn Discussion
1 week ago
Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.
Budget lands to consider adding:
- Command Tower : reprinted in Commander 2019 (C19), one of the best lands for multicolored Commander decks.
- Seaside Citadel : Bant Tri-land.
- Yavimaya Coast : reprinted in C19.
- Exotic Orchard : reprinted in C19.
- Ash Barrens : reprinted in C19.
- Prairie Stream : reprinted in C19.
- Canopy Vista
- Opal Palace
The lands that have been reprinted in C19 will decrease in price over the next month.
Upgrades to consider:
- Forgotten Ancient > Angel of Deliverance
- Managorger Hydra > Resplendent Griffin
- Cathars' Crusade > Elite Scaleguard or Cultivator of Blades
- Sol Ring > Teyo, the Shieldmage
- Good-Fortune Unicorn > New Horizons
- Thrummingbird > Shanna, Sisay's Legacy
- Grateful Apparition > Storm Fleet Aerialist
- Farseek > Nissa's Pilgrimage
- Inspiring Call > Ojutai's Command
- Brainstorm > Attune with Aether
- Ponder > Broken Bond
- Unbreakable Formation > Assure / Assemble
- Tezzeret's Gambit > Courage in Crisis
Many of these suggestions are repeatable sources of proliferate or counters. Ancient and Managorger are good with a counters theme because they get counters as you and your opponents cast spells. In multiplayer Commander these cards if not dealt with can get out of hand very fast especially Managorger because it has trample. Farseek can search for a dual land: Temple Garden , Irrigated Farmland or Scattered Groves . Being able to land ramp with a dual is helpful when playing three colors and wanting to be able to make turn three.

Lets say you have Good-Fortune Unicorn , Ghave, Guru of Spores and 5 lands. You cast Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip and make 2 tokens. It transforms on your end step and you can tap Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun for 4 green allowing you to make 4 more tokens. The next turn you make 5 creatures from your other lands and then 13 off of Itlimoc for a total of 24 tokens created over 2 turns.
You already said you were considering Cryptolith Rite , but let's run through the same scenario with it to give a comparison point on pure "combo but not infinite" potential. You would make 3 tokens off of lands the first turn and then 2 from tapping the creatures without summoning sickness. The next turn is 5 tokens off of lands and then 7 from tapping creatures. This totals 17 tokens over 2 turns.
You said it could be replaced by normal ramp cards, so lets assume the most normal of ramp cards, Rampant Growth . With it and the same scenario you make 3 tokens and then 6 for a total of 9 tokens over the 2 turns.

But champion IS a combo card.( I didn't actually read Good-Fortune Unicorn and thought you could use a 3 mana infinite counter source. The unicorn is better.)
I am a bit confused how "mana equal to your creatures" is the same as any other ramp though.

Path of Ancestry is also a must in a tribal deck. I also think Harmonize kinda has a chorus of the angels thing going, plus helps with your card draw problem. And While you've used pretty much all the multicolored angels you could, I'd give them a few multicolored support creatures to make your commander really pay off. Good-Fortune Unicorn , Gaddock Teeg , and Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas could all really help you out. Many tribal decks throw in an angel or two for support, so why not help out the angels?

Wow! Okay! It's been a minute since I've been able to sit down with this page, so I'll just respond to everyone in one comment. Life has kept me busy.
Hmmm...it could be good for pulling out Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth but otherwise would be a bit slow in the ramp package.
Avacyn, Angel of Hope has too high a cmc to be considered here. If I want to add to Grand Abolisher , I'd rather go with Silence , Autumn's Veil , or Veil of Summer . Those might be good additions if I can find cuts. The thing Abolisher has going for him is he's a creature with 2 cmc, so he's easily tutorable. I also find Anafenza, the Foremost to be lacking. She'd be good graveyard hate, but that's about it. Her +1/+1 counter ability is too narrow.
Thanks! I hope it's been of some use to you!
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed gives non-human creatures +1/+1, so Ballista won't die from having no counters left. We either need a sac outlet to kill it or a Blood Artist to take advantage from it dying when we use the counter to ping itself.
I like Vizier of Remedies especially with Devoted Druid , but the problem is it doesn't combo outside of the persist creatures. Cards like Good-Fortune Unicorn and Bloodspore Thrinax will combo with persist creatures AND Ghave. We're going for combo synergy here, so it's best for the combo pieces to be as modal as possible. I really don't like Melira, Sylvok Outcast for that reason. She only combos with persist creatures and nothing else. Yes she protects against infect, but that's hardly ever a problem. Green Sun's Zenith is in the Maybeboard. But it might just stay there for now since Finale of Devastation is better thanks to it being able to pull from the graveyard as well.
How many of those combo pieces also combo with other cards in the deck? It's nice to have more combos, but we want a card to be able to combo in multiple different lines. I probably won't ever run Sun Titan due to cmc. If I'm paying 6 mana, I'd rather have Mikaeus, the Unhallowed since he combos with more cards. Renegade Rallier is good with Saffi Eriksdotter , but he doesn't work with Karmic Guide or Reveillark . I know Fiend Hunter is a common combo piece in decks running Karmic, but I don't know that he has a place here. These combos are nice, but they need to be relevant outside of these lines as well to make them worth a slot in the deck. Thanks for the suggestions!

You also get stuff like Good-Fortune Unicorn , Nature's Chant , Huatli's Raptor , Pollenbright Druid , Grateful Apparition , Pledge of Unity , Martyr for the Cause , etc, if you expand your search to WAR.

All the creatures enter the battlefield simultaneously. However, that does not mean your strategy is ruined. Creatures entering the battlefield simultaniously see one another (for example, a Good-Fortune Unicorn will see another creature that enters at the same time as it, so Good-Fortune Unicorn 's ability will trigger off the simultaneous creature).
You control the order your triggers are put on the stack, so you can order them in such a way that best takes advantage of these triggers.

more persist creatures like Lesser Masticore can help fuel your strategy when you have some ways to reset the persist counter.
