Hornet Queen Discussion

Thanks for more insight, Soulus101. I'm thinking about some creatues that draw cards when they deal damage or enter the battlefield and taking out some lands because I have all of that card draw. The problem is, I feel like you are thinking about making the deck more aggro than I want it to be, especially because you think the Hornet Queen is too much mana and you think I should put in cheap draw. Given what I've seen from MTG Goldfish's modern budget magic, I want to make the deck keep up (especially against aggro) in the early game with Arbor Elfs, Elvish Mystics, and Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafters. by turn 3, I hope to have either Lorescale Coatl or Scion of the Wild that will slowly power up, then being able to win in the late game by playing Harmonize and Tidings when I am low on cards and playing my creatures that synergise well, really hoping to get a Prophet of Kruphix on the board. I am hoping to play very defensive at the beginning, using the advantage of double blocking, then getting a huge board that my opponent can't keep up with late in the game and attacking (most likely with big Lorescale Coatls, Scion of the Wilds, or tokens from Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafters.)

Although I use Hornet Queen in my Abzan deck and love it, at 7 mana (3 green) it might be a bit much compared to the rest. Instead of expensive card draw what about looting (Draw a card, then discard a card) effects? Smuggler's Copter was so good they banned it in Standard format (still okay in modern though) and will give you aerial threat and looting ability for cheap. Take Inventory is also quite good for cheap draw as long as you have 3 or 4, and it will scale for late game. Take a look for creatures that let you draw cards when they deal damage. All of these would be better IMO than your expensive card draw.

I should probably find room for Conjurer's Closet - it will be crazy good with Ulasht and Avenger of Zendikar, Hornet Queen and Chancellor of the Forge could benefit as well

Hi !

Let me give you some advise based on what I see in your list. Did you consider these cards:

If I can be of any help on here, just give me a headsup on my wall. I am always willing to help people with their commander decks.

If you would like to check my commander deck, then click here. I always enjoy a new upvote :)

Have fun on here and with MtG!

Best regards,

Looks good, I've been looking for more budget ideas to get a feel for how to build one as well. Nice to see some of the cards I was thinking of adding too (Hornet Queen, Edric, Spymaster of Trest) on here as well

Tolsimir Wolfblood will boost your dudes and also provide a free token, and Wilt-Leaf Liege will also boost your guys. Armada Wurm, Hornet Queen, Giant Adephage, and Desolation Twin will give you some powerful tokens to populate. You can feed a bunch of tokens to Mycoloth to get many more in return. Suture Priest can help gain you a ton of life off your tokens and punish your opponents for getting creatures out. Storm Herd and Devout Invocation are a little expensive mana-wise, but they can yield a massive number of tokens if you have enough life and creatures. Speaking of massive numbers of tokens, Second Harvest. I would also recommend Cultivate and Kodama's Reach for mana ramp, and I would replace Golden Hind with Llanowar Elves. Also, you can probably afford to run 36 lands instead of 38.

Sorry for the huge block of text and list of suggestions! Good luck with your deckbuilding!

+1 for the dune flavor, your alter is awesome.
also, Avenger of Zendikar auto include?
Life's Legacy is a cheaper, sorcery speed Momentous Fall.
if you want to go all in on the token strategy, some good token generators are Hornet Queen, Myr Battlesphere, Siege-Gang Commander, and Parallel Lives.
also, once your commander is big, you might want something like Rancor or Haunted Cloak to allow it to trample through.
