Graypelt Refuge Discussion

I like that you are playing enchantress, I have played enchantress for about a year, started with Selvala, Explorer Returned, moved to Karametra, God of Harvests, then Dragonlord Dromoka, then Captain Sisay, finally decided on Selvala, Explorer Returned in a giant stupid circle.
[Help Needed] EDH GW Enchantress is my build.
I'd suggest you drop a bunch of cards like Temple of Plenty, Tranquil Expanse, Tranquil Garden, Vec Townships, Scattered Groves, Selesnya Guildgate, Riftstone Portal, Graypelt Refuge, Grove of the Guardian, Mosswort Bridge, Blossoming Sands, Exotic Orchard, for Mana Confluence, City of Brass, Wooded Foothills, Flooded Strand, Arid Mesa, Misty Rainforest, Verdant Catacombs, Marsh Flats, Razorverge Thicket, Brushland, Savannah and Wooded Bastion or the likes.

Hey, if $250 total budget then you're already way over budget because Land Tax is a $25 card and Concordant Crossroads is a $15 card both are currently not being counted in the total of the deck. Even if have a low budget you can still play a bunch of the Selesyna dual lands. The manabase here is really bad, 36 Basic lands? Cutting 10-11 Basic lands will not hurt the manabase or Land Tax's ability, there's still plenty of Basic lands. You're not going to draw Land Tax every game and in games you don't draw it having duals will help to play spells.
Consider these lands:
- Command Tower: Commander staple for $1
- Canopy Vista: works well with Basic lands
- Selesnya Sanctuary: works well with Basic lands
- Fortified Village: works well with Basic lands
- Sunpetal Grove: works well with Basic lands
- Temple of Plenty
- Stirring Wildwood
- Blossoming Sands
- Graypelt Refuge
- Grove of the Guardian: create an 8/8 token that can then be populated
- Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree: repeatable token maker on a land
Also consider these cards:
- Imperious Perfect: repeatable Elf token maker and lord for Elf tokens
- Mentor of the Meek: can be a draw engine with Rhys tokens, four mana create a token and draw a card. Very good with populate
- Rampaging Baloths: good finisher because of trample, creates 4/4 Beast tokens by playing lands
- Mirror Entity: make all tokens huge power and toughness for a turn, is an Elf
- Hornet Queen: flying deathtouch bees are very scary for your opponents especially when you start populating them
- Swords to Plowshares: Commander staple white removal spell
- Beast Within: Commander staple green removal spell
- Sundering Growth: one of the better populate spells
- Rootborn Defenses: one of the better populate spells, protect token army from board wipe or removal
- Advent of the Wurm: a 5/5 token with trample is very good with populate
- Epic Struggle: win the game by creating and populating tokens
- Oblivion Ring: Commander staple white removal
Good luck with your deck.

I love my cats deck! I know you have already seen my deck, WonderCats, but if I may make a few suggestions for yours? First off, I think the best thing you have changed is your mana-base: it looks pretty decent. Do you really own a Savannah? If so, good on you lol. Since you are only in 2 colors and have no Landfall, I would drop Terramorphic Expanse & Evolving Wilds, since in this deck Scattered Groves & Stirring Wildwood are "strictly better" (think about it.. even Blossoming Sands, Graypelt Refuge, Arctic Flats, Elfhame Palace, Selesnya Guildgate, & Grasslands are strictly better in this 2-color deck with no landfall/revolt triggers..). I really like Brushland, Sungrass Prairie, & Selesnya Sanctuary, too. I would also recommend Temple of the False God & Thran Dynamo since you have a lot of artifacts with colorless mana costs, though Gilded Lotus is good, too. Selesnya Signet & Sungrass Prairie can help filter the colorless to colored. Krosan Verge is terrible- at least go with Grasslands if you want that search for a non-basic, since it is free and the non-basic can come into play untapped (another "strictly better" situation). I would add Krosan Verge (which is essentially the same as Cultivate, & you already know how good that card is!), & another one of my favorite ramp spells: Skyshroud Claim! Notice how Skyshroud lets you bring in TWO non-basic lands.. UNTAPPED.. frikkin unreal ramp card. If you have even 3 colorless mana available, then Selesnya Signet basically costs one mana to give you ramp as well as make the other 2 mana colored. Pretty awesome early game- better than Rampant Growth, imo, though I don't run Rampant Growth myself. My last suggestion for mana-base is Strip Mine, mostly to get rid Maze of Ith, since it can be very annoying when running a Voltron strategy.
Okay- onto Instants/Sorceries.. why Condemn? With the "tuck" rules for Commanders now letting them go back to the Command Zone, why not simply run Swords to Plowshares? It is another "strictly better" case, imo. I feel Path to Exile is inferior to Swords to Plowshares in this format, but I do think even Path is still better than Condemn. Wing Shards & Crushing Vines are terrible, & Relic Crush isn't much better- Sundering Growth, Naturalize, & Nature's Claim are all good options.. & even better than those are Aura Shards & Krosan Grip. Rout & Divine Reckoning are ok, but I personally prefer Wrath of God, Catastrophe, & my pet favorite, Austere Command. The problem with Hunter's Prowess is that it costs 5-mana & is at sorcery speed.. I've found Hunter's Insight to be more useful in my own Voltron deck.
Enchantments: the Curses are kinda fun, but not effective enough to warrant a slot in an edh deck, imo. Something like Aura Shards or Sylvan Library or Greater Good or Asceticism or Duelist's Heritage has a much bigger impact on the game- & my biggest suggestion would be to add Sigarda's Aid! Amazingly broken card..
Equipment: Grappling Hook is good, but expensive- I exchanged it for Fireshrieker in my own deck & find it works better for me. Duelist's Heritage does much the same thing and is even better, imo. I LOVE Hammer of Nazahn, & if you have realized how amazing that free equip cost can be, then consider Sigarda's Aid! Add double-strike to either of those cards and then Bloodforged Battle-Axe becomes INSANE.. I have literally had 40+ Bloodforged Battle-Axes before, with 20-something equipped for free. Puresteel Paladin is obviously great, too. I think your Sword of War and Peace does as more harm than good- I personally cut both Sword of Feast and Famine & Sword of Light and Shadow from my own Arahbo deck due to the protection being a problem (not only because of the Eminence, but because of all the other cards in the 99 that target..). Sword of Fire and Ice avoids that problem in this deck, though, and is arguably the best of all the Swords. Umezawa's Jitte is INSANE. If it doesn't seem overpowered to you, then you have never played with or against it. Get something to have double-strike and it gets really crazy. Because of the shroud on Whispersilk Cloak, I personally prefer Prowler's Helm in my Arahbo build. I actually think it might benefit your deck more to cut some of the weaker equipment and add the ability to tutor for the better ones, ie- Stoneforge Mystic, Stonehewer Giant, Steelshaper's Gift, Open the Armory, etc.
Creatures- Dude, you cut Qasali Pridemage?!! He is one of the best Cats! He is basically a 3-mana destroy target artifact/enchantment that in this deck can swing for 6 damage on turn 3! Hungry Lynx & Arctic Nishoba are just plain bad, imo, & a lot of the other cats you have sit far too high on the mana-curve.. I would halve your 6-7 drops, tbh. Alms Collector under-performed for me, since drawing consecutive/additional cards isn't the same as drawing "two or more." Pride Sovereign is another under-performer that I cut, since we aren't going wide, but tall. A few MUST-have's that are missing are: Lost Leonin, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Leonin Abunas, Mirri, Cat Warrior, & Skyhunter Skirmisher. I personally also really like Skyhunter Prowler, Chameleon Colossus (technically a cat!), Prowling Serpopard, Leonin Shikari. A few non-cats I really really like are Sun Titan, Stonehewer Giant, & Puresteel Paladin.
Anyways, hopefully I've given you some ideas.. Good Luck! I love my cats!

This is my first time building an EDH deck and I was curious what could be improved.
I want to add in a boardwipe like Wrath of God or Planar Cleansing and switch something out for Wakening Sun's Avatar and then I don't have Command Tower or Reliquary Tower in and don't know if they're "required".

Oh shoot you're totally right about Graypelt Refuge thanks!
Also yeah Benefaction of Rhonas is super sweet.
I think I sort of want to test out the deck (I haven't even built it yet) with the fat creatures just to see if sometimes it helps me stay alive/steal a win here and there/not just lose because I only have one win-con.
Do you know of any permanent protection for Guard? I feel like the deck is kind of fragile and wants to have something to protect it besides Gods Willing.
Thanks again that's some solid feedback for a deck right there.

Thanks Mike94 for your input! I made the following changes: Teferi's Protection for Zendikar Resurgent, Eerie Interlude for Fortified Village, Commander's Sphere for Blossoming Sands, Elvish Piper for Wilt-Leaf Liege, Thran Dynamo for Razorverge Thicket, Resolute Archangel for Land Tax and Graypelt Refuge for Gilded Lotus. This now brings me to 36 lands and a couple of more mana artifacts.
I know that I am vulnerable to everything that kills my combos, but I always tried to include a couple of alternatives to Brisela, the Voice of Nightmares, Azusa, Lost but Seeking, and also Captain Sisay.

If the dollar limit is arbitrary, and you could push it up some there are a few other gems like Nyx-Fleece Ram and Ajani's Mantra that can give you a little life each turn. I like the theme behind the deck, I think you can come down on mana costs with a chunk of your creatures and get some more effects to gain the life in spurts each turn. If you would like the idea, I think making it green white would really help too. Heros Reunion Captured Sunlight and then green guys like Jaddi Offshoot Grazing Gladehart and Retreat to Kazandu. Some solid lands to include are Radiant Fountain and Kabira Crossroads. Again if you add green these get even better with Selesnya Sanctuary Blossoming Sands and Graypelt Refuge.
