My dude,

I'm running into some mana issues while testing. I believe you're running too many green mana producers, and not enough white. You also run so many Legendary creatures, it gets rough at times when I draw 2 Tajics in my opening hand, and an Aurelia, followed by another Aurelia. Granted, awesome for the Mox, but still.

Also, with a good chunk of your lands being checklands, it sucks when you draw into a hand of them on a fast decktype like this one.

I'd recommend altering your mana base slightly, swapping your checklands for painlands like Karplusan Forest , Battlefield Forge , or some Brushlands (for some reason, it can't find the Brushland here). A deck this quick that wants to win on T4 or T5 shouldn't care much about losing 4 or 5 points of life to win with overwhelming numbers and damage. I'd also consider dropping 1 Mox Amber for an additional Response / Resurgence as I never seem to get one when I need one, and I can only ever have one Amber out at a time (though playing, tapping, sacking, playing another one, and tapping it for 2 mana total is pretty fun).

I like your single planeswalker, but I've only ever managed to get a single use out of it in the testing I've done with it, and I run out of creatures to play or multicolored spells to cast, so the Hero of Precinct One don't seem to really do much, so you have to rely on the Legion Warboss , which you really don't want to be doing, as you want to kill off consistently at T5 and we're not going for a late game kill.

That being said, LOVED this deck idea and I may or may not steal it and run some stress tests with my group.

Keep decking!

About lands - I think that actually Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep isn't that great. If you want more sources then I'd actually suggest better fixing, namely City of Brass , Mana Confluence , Llanowar Wastes , Karplusan Forest and Fellwar Stone might be a good idea.

Infinite combos are actually very good when you all are in a tight spot when nobody can win the game and it already feels like going for too long. Also I personally try to use them to win with stronger decks, while with less cutthroat playgroup I prefer to win with normal combat damage or damage triggers from Scourge of Valkas and/or Dragon Tempest so overall it's good to have that option but it's execution and usage is only up to you.

With Nesting Dragon keep in mind that even budget Evolving Wilds might be very good as it fixes mana and creates 2 tokens.

One more thing - I'd cut some less optimal Dragons for more ramp options like Demanding Dragon for Skyshroud Claim or Thunder Dragon for Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma (might not look like a ramp but not only makes dragons cost less but you have additional source of Trample for them).

I'm really glad that you liked my insight, I just love tinkering Dragon decks :D

Hey again, saw your forum topic asking for help.

Consider cards that can arrange the top of your library? These cards let you more easily reveal a creature to cheat into play with Mayael. If your friend's budget is $1000 then he/she can afford Scroll Rack and/or Sensei's Divining Top and/or Sylvan Library . These three cards are powerful repeatable ways to arrange the top of your library. Enlightened Tutor can tutor for one of these cards. Other cards that do this are creature tutors that put the creature you search for on top of your library: Worldly Tutor , Congregation at Dawn and Sylvan Tutor .

Other cards to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, good start. The budget is $500? It's not even at total $200 yet :)

My suggestions are to finish the manabase and improve the overall mana with additional mana sources. Budget ($5 or less each) cards to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting/upgrading:

  • Golgari Rot Farm
  • Gruul Turf
  • Rakdos Carnarium
  • Evolving Wilds
  • Barren Moor
  • Forgotten Cave
  • Tranquil Thicket
  • Rampant Growth
  • Circuitous Route
  • Golgari Locket
  • Naturalize
  • Murder
  • Victim of Night
  • Trumpet Blast
  • Bone Shredder
  • Scourge Devil

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.

My suggestions are to improve the manabase and overall mana production. There's several budget lands that can be added. When playing three or more colors focusing on making the manabase good is just as important as the rest of the cards in the deck. You've been playing this deck for five months and haven't had a Command Tower ? The avg. CMC here is 4.0 that's high with only 33 lands. Consider cutting several high mana cost cards for more one/two/three drop mana sources?

Lands ($4 or less each) to consider adding:

Additional mana sources to consider:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Simic Guildgate
  • Temple of the False God
  • Simic Growth Chamber
  • Desolation Twin
  • Swarm Intelligence
  • Mind's Dilation
  • Spelljack
  • Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind
  • Intet, the Dreamer
  • Samut, the Tested
  • Core Prowler

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, looks good for your first Commander deck there's several great cards here, nice Survival and Taiga :)

New Commander players sometimes fall into the trap of the more high mana cost creatures you play the better the deck is. When in reality "less is more" when it comes to big creatures especially since you have the high budget to include creature tutors and already have Survival. Sneak, Quicksliver and Piper can bypass the casting costs of high CMC creatures and that's good, but these are only three cards in the entire deck that do this and that's a problem for how the overall deck is built.

What is the backup plan to be able to cast 27 6-12 drop creatures if you don't draw Sneak, Quicksilver or Piper? My advice is cut a huge amount of these creatures to include more ramp and more tutors. Keep the 10 most impactful big creatures with Xenagos's +X-+X and haste ability:

  • Etali
  • Omnivore
  • Scourge
  • Vorinclex
  • Stonehoof
  • Blightsteel
  • Ulamog Gyre
  • Hellkite Tyrant
  • Balefire
  • Ghalta, Primal Hunger

Even 10 of these high CMC creatures is a lot. The avg. CMC of the deck is 4.9, this is very high. Cutting a large number of the other 27+ high CMC creatures/cards will reduce this number a lot making game play smoother.


There's already a small ramp strategy here with the centerpiece being Selvala. Consider expanding on ramp?

Ramp is the backup plan to help to be able to cast the big creatures or tutors such as Green Sun's Zenith . It also helps to get Xenagos into play faster which will make the overall deck better.

Tutors and draw to consider adding:

Try Stinkweed Imp over Glowspore Shaman for some repeatable graveyard filling. Ditch Evolving Wilds for Karplusan Forest and then go from there. Llanowar Elves or Utopia Sprawl might help you play your 4 drops earlier. You'll need more Forest type lands though to implement that. A single Overgrown Tomb for $6-7 wouldn't hurt either.
