Idyllic Tutor Discussion
1 day ago
...the idea is really cute, and I like it. That being said, you need more tutors! Academy Rector, Idyllic Tutor, Plea for Guidance, etc. You could make an argument for Enduring Ideal, as a way to guarantee the combo if you have some form of lock down. You also don't seem to have much protection, such as Greater Auramancy, etc (unless they disrupt the combo). Also, given that you're playing Winter Orb, I'm surprised you're not running Stasis proper for the combo with Estrid ;)
Hope this helps!

Ok, this deck has a simple problem. Rather than building win-cons, you've filled a lot of card slots with big, game-ending spells. I'm seeing four combos and big creatures.
The issue with doing this can be explained pretty quickly- Combo cards are effectively blank until you get both parts of them, and high mana cost cards are blank until you can cast them. Most of the game is how you get to your big stuff, rather than staring at them in your hand and wishing you could use them, so that should be reflected on how much of your deck is 'I win if I cast this' compared to 'I need to survive to cast this'.
This basically means that this deck consists of Predator Ooze, Heritage Druid Noble Hierarch Essence Warden and Champion of Lambholt, but your hands will only have one or two of them at most. In modern, most decks will have two removal spells and a way of winning by turn five, so you will lose against most decks unless you get very lucky.
There are some simple solutions to this. This genreally means reducing the number of combo cards while increasing your ways to make sure that they arent 'blank'. Tutors, pseudo tutors, making sure your combos are good without both halves.
You don't want to be attacking enough for Dense Canopy to reliably provide value, so its normally blank- you can replace it. Similarly, Spring Cleaning/Primeval Light takes a long time to be useful, while something like (Felidar Cub/Keening Apparition/Kami of Ancient Law or in particular Qasali Pridemage or Thrashing Brontodon can be bears and destroy all the important stuff the turn evening resolves- its still basically a wipe, its just useful prior to being a wipe.
Your only black cards are Sanguine Bond/Exquisite Blood. They end the game, but without four of each (and Vizkopa Guildmage) it is difficult for them to be in your hand and to reliably cast them. Spells like Zealous Persecution Mortify or Anguished Unmaking could play well with different gamplans but you should cut both of them, and focus more on two colours, as the mana is a lot easier to provide (as cards you can't cast are basically blank).
So, when you are looking at a card in this deck or to add to this deck, think through several things. 'How does it help me' 'When does it help me' and 'when don't I want it'. This means finding versatile cards which can destroy enchantments but are also creatures or have multiple modes (hello Austere Command/Primal Command). Try to pick cards that don't just help with one of your gamplans, but all your gameplans. Similarly. if a gamplan just isn't working out, consider cutting it for more support, or cutting something else to support it more.
I really reccomend focussing on 1 drops that help generate mana/life, and 5 drops that have a big impact the moment they are played (Thragtusk, Painful Quandary) etc. A set of 2/3 mana cards that form your combos or can search your library for them (Idyllic Tutor, Lost Auramancers etc) and a smaller number of wincons. Foccusing in on what you want to do really helps you with picking cards that help you get there.

@CianHauser Thanks for the comment! :) The original copy of this deck ran Steelshaper's Gift as an "extra" copy of Deathrender but I found that Idyllic Tutor was better a better option since it hit the CMC 3 slot (as the only card in the deck) and has the ability to tutor Enduring Renewal. However I'm still not sure whether or not to run Steelshaper's Gift instead of Idyllic Tutur.

You wanted some advice on this deck; I do check the Commander app now and again. It is a solid deck idea but you are missing a few key pieces. Counterspells for one. Aura of Silence could also be a consideration. Another consideration is a favourite of mine: Umbra Mystic. She gives all Auras totem armour. Fable of the Wolf and Owl, Idyllic Tutor and Enlightened Tutor are worthy considerations. Snake Umbra, Hyena Umbra and Drake Umbra are on par with their sister umbra the Bear Umbra. It is a good deck idea though.

I thought the deck was funny, then I looked at the comment and lost my goddamn mind. I have no idea what PinkBoi was trying to say, but damn was it funny. Anyway, Mwonvuli Beast Tracker would be a perfect fit here to grab the fatty you want and pop it on top. You also might want to consider splashing white for Congregation at Dawn and/or Idyllic Tutor. Wurmcoil Engine and Worldspine Wurm are also fatties you could consider instead of Giant Adephage or Stormtide Leviathan. And since you're not planning on actually casting any of your fatties, you can run off color ones too - Iona, Shield of Emeria and Avacyn, Angel of Hope are the ones that jump to mind.

SynergyBuild the only problem I have with some of those tutors is that they're too expensive for me. I can slip in Beseech the Queen, but Grim Tutor and Imperial Seal are too expensive. I'm going to eventually add in Idyllic Tutor, but the others are just far too much for me. Thanks for the suggestions! Honestly forgot about some of those cards!

Note: this, again is for my Boros cEDH deck. I would like some suggestions only from the cEDH players that do, in fact care about this as I have a massive 30 cards to cut... any ideas? Maybe Idyllic Tutor? Any tutors at all in Red I don't have? Let me know. This is getting out of my hands... Dx
