Jolrael, Empress of Beasts Discussion

Appreciate the suggestions as this opened my eyes to re-tooling the manabase. This is the first commander deck I built and I made the mistake of never revisiting the manabase.
I think i'm going to go a little different route though and if you have any other thoughts on this strategy i'd love to hear them.
The plan is to increase the basics land count to 13-15 with a little extra focus on green. With those i'll add the green ramp/fixing staples of Kodama's Reach , Cultivate , Rampant Growth , Farseek , and Explosive Vegetation .
In addition to the basics i'm planning to add the Battle lands for another shot of entering untapped.
I understand your point about cutting these guys:
Jolrael, Empress of Beasts - Love holding a player hostage with the land destruction threat. Sad to see it go.

Hey, great deck name, +1 just for that :)
21 of the 34 lands in the manabase ETB tapped. That's a lot and not good for a five color deck. Since this is a budget manabase, budget lands to consider adding:
Are Thorncaster Sliver , Ward Sliver , Jolrael, Empress of Beasts , Might Sliver and Pulmonic Sliver worth playing as five drops? The five drop Sliver here you want to play is Hivelord or Overload, playing seven other five drop creatures doesn't seem needed and can hurt the consistency of being able to play the better five drops. There's quite a few other five drop noncreature cards here too. Constricting Sliver , Fury Sliver , Megantic Sliver are six drop Slivers and they also don't seem needed.
Other cards to consider adding:
- Sol Ring
- Eladamri's Call
- Fellwar Stone
- Mystic Remora
- Amoeboid Changeling
- Homing Sliver
- Venom Sliver
- Striking Sliver
- The First Sliver
- Shared Animosity
- Dovin's Veto
Cards to consider cutting:
- Vivid Crag
- Vivid Creek
- Vivid Grove
- Vivid Marsh
- Vivid Meadow
- Thorncaster Sliver
- Ward Sliver
- Constricting Sliver
- Fury Sliver
- Megantic Sliver
- Jolrael, Empress of Beasts
- Might Sliver
- Pulmonic Sliver
- Spreading Plague
- Star of Extinction
- Door of Destinies

Hmm so similar to Jolrael, Empress of Beasts but for squirrels...I can dig that. I actually used to have a Jolrael deck at one point so I would be totally on board with animating lands. That would be an interesting, non-generic route to go.
ETB making squirrels would follow in the the path of the two hermits so I could see that as an option.

Hellooooooo! I play Seton as a commander too! I like your deck list.
I’ll see if I can help you out. Feel free to give me feedback on mine as well (I feel like it still needs to be refined a bit). My version.
As far as boardwipes go I’m running All Is Dust , Setessan Tactics by itself or with Natural Affinity to destroy some lands as you aspire to do. Green Kamahl or Jolrael, Empress of Beasts help in this regard as well—and I see you are already running Kamahl. There’s also Oblivion Stone or a really janky option with Boompile . I’m also running Cyclone since mana is usually not a problem and this deals damage to each player as well which I like. And then there’s Back to Nature , Bane of Progress , Seeds of Innocence and Rampage of the Clans for artifact and enchantment wipes.
I just put a Paradox Engine in and I cant wait to see how it works.
Obviously no need to accept all of my suggestions but definitely stuff for you to think about. I personally need a Gilt-Leaf Archdruid for my deck still.

The first thing I would recommend is finding a way to copy your namesake card the turn it's cast. Copies aren't cast, so both will resolve! It's pretty expensive, so having onboard ways are the best. Primal Amulet Flip is probably the best. If you utilize spell based ramp and tutors, you should be able to flip it. Swarm Intelligence , The Mirari Conjecture could also work.
Since you're not planning on using your hand or lands into the late game, you might as well have onboard tricks that use those resources.
To use your hand, you could play Rix Maadi, Dungeon Palace , Words of Waste , Null Brooch , Restore Balance , Jolrael, Empress of Beasts , Mageta the Lion , Stronghold Machinist , Stronghold Biologist , Greel, Mind Raker , Alexi, Zephyr Mage , Notorious Assassin , Knollspine Invocation , Pyromancy , and Magus of the Balance .

If you are looking to build your first commander deck, my suggestion is that you shouldn't spend too much time fretting about color combinations. I think you should first land on what strategy you enjoy playing the most. Are you a control player? Combo? Timmy? Johnny? Tribal? Lands-matter? etc. Commander is such a vast format that you could achieve any of these strategies in just about any color combination. That being said, certain strategies do rely heavily on certain color combinations. Once you land on a strategy (even the list of commanders you mentioned has a wide range) it will be easier to provide suggestions.
I'd suggest checking places like EDHrec or some of the youtube streamers (like JumboCommander) for more ideas once you land on a strategy or a commander. EDHrec even has things organized by strategies and/or colors which makes it nice and easy to navigate.
Also, don't be afraid of mono-colored decks, especially Black. They can be extremely powerful.
Lastly, I'll leave a list of my current decks here if you just want to see some more. I tend to have a wide variety of deck focuses as I prefer less conventional strategies:
This deck has HUGE tracks of land - My baby, which I have been building/modifying over years. It's a lands deck that was originally led by Omnath, Locus of Rage, but it is now helmed by Lord Windgrace because I have been missing the addition of black.
I am also working on a Boros Reanimator list which is turning out to be pretty spicey.
All of these decks came from me wanting to execute a specific strategy or from a commander which just spoke to me. So first find that, and then go from there. Good Luck!
