Ior Ruin Expedition Discussion

Yeah thanks for reaching out. You're talking about upgrading the brawl deck into a commander one, right? I would definitely go back and look at what Theros did with enchantments. Get a few blue/white/black enchantment creatures for bodies on the field. They also gave us an enchantment for each thing that we normally did with sorceries/instants. Check out Zur the Enchanter decks (and get yourself Zur for your deck too). Ethereal Armor is a must, plus removal like Oblivion Ring , Prison Realm , Detention Sphere , and Conclave Tribunal (there are many options). For card draw, Curiosity , Curious Obsession , and Ior Ruin Expedition if you're on a budget. The Fonts from Theros are also useful here; Font of Fortunes , Font of Return , and some of the Seal enchantments: Seal of Cleansing , Seal of Doom , Seal of Removal . You should rarely need to put an instant or sorcery in your deck since you can get all kinds of synergy with enchantments and the enchantments basically do the same thing. Blightcaster helps turn all of those enchantments also into removal spells. And look forward to all of the enchantment creatures that will be added in the next set, Theros Beyond Death!

Card ideas - Emeria Angel Ior Ruin Expedition Lotus Cobra - Part of me thinks groundswell is good as well but it probably isnt great here. - i figured getting as many ETB triggers from your lands could provide a lot vaule. Toper orb maybe a probelm but i dont see it getting a lot of play so that should be fine.

So I did some brewing and testing and a card I found to be awesome was Springbloom Druid . I also tested Ior Ruin Expedition but with all the filtering and getting the lands out of your deck, it's probably not worth the slot since it can be too slow. As a sideboard I found Rootborn Defenses very nice and cut down on Deliverance when sideboarding as well as Sundering Growth for decks that rely on artifacts and enchantments. For example, Ashnod's Altar is a card that I see a lot after the unification of pauper and against these combo decks we want something to stabilize.
These are the things I found out thus far :)

Sylvan Library sounds like it would fit well into this, since it provides three card draw triggers per draw step.
If people are trying to kill it as soon as it comes down, maybe some delayed card draw effects might be nice: Ior Ruin Expedition , Attunement would make it so you can immediately get counters onto Toothy after playing it, while holding up as much mana as possible.
Savage Summoning : Would the can't be countered upside be worth it over flash? It does cost one Mana more.
An interesting interaction: I believe the parner ability allows you to search and shuffle your library when you play Pir / Toothy, even though the corresponding card will never be in your deck. If that's true, that's a small upside if you find yourself brainstorm-locked.

Thwartheb je gelijk in, maar je kan meestal genoeg recuren
Vanmiddag bedacht ik me orecies hetzelfde met Song of the Dryads dus die gaan vervangen worden
Ior Ruin Expedition is inderdaad niet heel denderend maar voorde early game start wel prima, maar als ik er zo over nadenk is ramp op die plek dan beter
En Storm Cauldron staat er maar 1x in. Misschien omdat hij meerdere tags heeft? Maar dat hebben wel meerdere.
Thnx voor het meedenken!

Hou er rekening mee dat Thwart enzo islands nodig hebben en op dit moment heb je slechts 13 islands in je deck.
Ior Ruin Expedition is een klein effect, zou hem niet aanraden.
Enter the Unknown is een klein effect die ik wel aan zou raden, card advantage EN een land drop voor één mana. Sowieso is Explore wel goed in je deck.
Roil Elemental is Boehhhhhh
Storm Cauldron staat twee keer tussen je deck.
Voor de rest ben ik even inspiratieloos.

You pay two, return one of the tapped lands, untap the other tapped land used to pay the cost - repeat with retreat... with an active growth chamber it may make infinite mana?
You lose the infinite tokens, but could help with combo consistency (10 options) if a Cloudstone or Meloku isn't drawn (6 options). Though the only piece i would remove is Long-Term Plans. Ior Ruin Expedition can be added if you have your combo but haven't drawn a win con?

Ior Ruin Expedition makes you draw not really efficient. im not sure but you could load up on cantrips like Quicken or cards with draw effects like Sphinx's Revelation and let Jace's Erasure and Sphinx's Tutelage do work.
