Mana Fixing

Tzefick on Teysa Karlov’s Double D's

3 weeks ago

Looking through your lands:

I would probably not run Witch's Cottage. Seeing as you only have 15 of your lands that are Swamps (12 basics, 1 Urborg, 1 Shockland, 1 Alpha-Dual) to enable the rest of the payoff, the amount of times you can reliably trigger this effect and get something useful out of it, seems to be overshadowed by a tapped land on any other occasion.

You have 6 (7) lands that by themselves only tap for colorless - one is Cabal Coffers and doesn't tap by itself, another is Nykthos that requires a great deal before it starts tapping for colored mana. I would worry to end up with too many non-colored sources, especially since you run with low cost cards with limited generic costs. I would say you don't have enough mass-draw to get proper value out of Reliquary Tower, so I would replace that with a colored source. Personally I would drop Hall of Heliod's Generosity as well, but that's up to your attachment to your selection of enchantments.

I would probably replace some of these with an Evolving Wilds (just for the fixing) and basics. You can also look forward to Vault of Champions. You could consider Temple of Silence. Normally I would suggest High Market as a sac outlet within your lands (and thus seldom removed), but you do have quite a few sac outlets in your deck, so it should be possible to get redundant copies.

I'm a little puzzled why you run the Snow-covered basics... Are there many people in your playgroup that uses Extraplanar Lens? Or is it just an aesthetic thing?

I don't know your playgroup, but I would say you're a little light on interaction. It seems you're mostly focused on doing your thing. So if an opponent is doing their thing better/faster, you have very little means to change that outcome. Just something to consider.

sub780lime While the main deck is Teysa, from time to time I make some changes to lower the power level changing the commander to Krav, the Unredeemed and Regna, the Redeemer or I add from sideboard Harvester of Souls and Vampiric Rites. Thats why I keep Thought Vessel and Reliquary Tower on the main deck.

I don't like Nightmare Shepherd in this deck, since I lose the possibility to reanimate the creature if I exile it with him. Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted ability can only be used twice at most, and in my playgroup they will kill it after using him once most of the times. About Hunted Witness, I have him and other similar cards of CMC 1, but for the moment I prefer to use the 2 CMC that I have on my deck due to the keywords they include.

High Market, Hell's Caretaker and Talisman of Hierarchy are on the list of cards to try to get when the situation of the pandemic gets better and is possible to go again to LGS, since on the village I live there's none and I need to go to the city next to my hometown.

I like the look of the list. With Teysa, you can never have enough sac outlets. Have you considered High Market. The card is only a couple bucks at most and it gives you another means to trigger Teysa's ability. Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted can also be used on your own stuff for triggers and draw.

I noticed both Thought Vessel and Reliquary Tower in the deck. What's your draw line to make these worthwhile. I am not saying they aren't I'm just wondering how often they are dead cards versus the happy Christmas land time where they work out. Draw overall seems really light in the deck and so I'm not sure how often you are filling up so much to need no hand size. That Reliquary Tower could go to High Market and the Thought Vessel to Hell's Caretaker (another sac method) or Hunted Witness (curve lowering trigger for Teysa). If you want it to be a rock of some sort, I would still play Everflowing Chalice first as it also gives you a mana dump or just go with Talisman of Hierarchy.

Do you have a Nightmare Shepherd laying around?

Some lands I will suggest are:

Snap157 on Korvold, Fae King, ruler of Eldrazi

Crucible of Worlds would be cool! Maybe even Ramunap Excavator if you need extra sacrifice fodder?

Also forgot to mention some utility lands. You're running a on of basics, so you may have some room for lands that feed into korvld's draw ability such as Strip Mine, Wasteland, Ghost Quarter, High Market, and Reliquary Tower. Since you're running three colors you may want to pick your three favorites and add them in.

What are your thoughts on Farhaven Elf vs. Wood Elves? It might be worth the switch because it can get an untapped shock land.

Additionally, the ramp provided by Dryad of the Ilysian Grove is strictly better than Prismatic Omen for the low cost of one more mana, not to mention getting a creature to sacrifice if you need to.

multimedia on HELP Meren Budget

1 month ago

Hey, very good budget version of Meren.

For the manabase my advice is play an equal amount of Forests and Swamps because you have one drop green mana dorks who you want to be able to consistently play turn one which a Forest is the best land option for the manabase to do that. Having double the amount of Swamps than Forests is problematic when playing one drop mana dorks.

Some budget cards to consider adding:

Buried Alive is excellent to tutor for any three creatures and put them into your graveyard, one of the best cards with Meren. Jarad's Orders and Final Parting are nice budget tutors with Meren. Tutoring for two cards, one goes into your hand and the other being a creature into your graveyard to reanimate/recur with Meren. Elves of Deep Shadow and Talisman of Resilience are low CMC budget ramp upgrades.

Midnight Reaper and Deathreap Ritual are more repeatable draw sources when creatures you control die. Deathreap can draw a lot of cards in multiplayer Commander since morbid can trigger on any players turn as long as any creature died during the turn. Butcher of Malakir is a upgrade for a budget big creature to reanimate with Meren since it's a repeatable source of opponents having to sac a creature they control when any creature you control dies. Demon's Disciple is an upgrade for Merciless Executioner since if an opponent doesn't have a creature, but has a Planeswalker they have to sac a Planeswalker.

Some cards to consider cutting:

The Vivid lands are not good lands and even on a budget there's better options. They aren't reliable enough to warrant ETB tapped and even if you have a way to put more counters on them with proliferate I still think they're not worth playing even over more basic lands. Hogaak, Arisen Necropolis is not worth the trouble of casting it or reanimating it. It's just a beater, but you want more than that with high CMC creatures in Commander.

Good luck with your deck.
