Avatar of Growth has no direct interaction with Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis, and as others have already pointed out, its just not a good card. there are better ways to ramp your mana.

The upcoming game night set shall contain five new creatures, one for each color, and I am concerned that avatar of growth, the green creature, may eventually be banned in EDH, a fear that I have based upon the banning of both Primeval Titan and Sylvan Primordial. Each of those creatures is part of a cycle of five creatures, but only the green members of each cycle are banned, due to the fact that they allow their controller to search their library for land cards, which avatar of growth also does.

I personally hope that it is not banned, because it would be amazing in a deck with Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis as the general, a deck that I hope to build, some day.

Also, as a side note, I feel that militant angel is the least impressive creature of that cycle, which is very unfortunate, since white is my favorite color in this game and angels are my favorite creatures in this game.

What does everyone else say about this? Will avatar of growth be banned in EDH?

The whole deck or a commander with a some cards that synergize well with them. Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis is who I want the most so if someone had him and some group hug cards I'd be fine with that. Pretty much any of the commanders with cards that go well with them would do.

I took a look at the decks you've posted to see what you've found disappointing. For the reference of others:

It seems like you should try playing a control deck. There are two basic types of control in Magic--proactive and reactive.

Proactive control are your Stax and Taxes decks. These are powerful, but you need to be careful not to build them stronger than your meta allows. By definition, these seek to lock players out of the game, and your friends might find that unfun. Some good options include:

Reactive control are your counterspells and removal spells. They allow an opponent to act first, which you respond to. The effectiveness of these decks decreases in multiplayer, as there are too many threats to remove, and not enough open mana. Some options include:

  • Talrand, Sky Summoner, who gives you creatures with your counterspells, at the cost of being mono-blue, and thus giving no hard removal.

  • Kess, Dissident Mage is in fantastic control colours and allows you to flashback kill spells.

  • Reaper King gives access to all colours and can be turned into a removal machine with some scarecrows/changelings and blink effects.

Hopefully some of this helps!

Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis is an awesome suggestion! It gives me draw and helps me put more lands onto the field. Bring to Light also seems a good card for this since I could search for anything that costs 5 or less and that's most of the deck. Yidris wouldn't help unless I had more ways to fill my hand or at least improve my draws.

This deck is awesome. As a couple of suggestions, Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder can help move through your deck. Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis helps develop your hand and land base, if you don't mind developing everyone else's stuff too. And as lukedelta77 mentioned, some more tutors would help--maybe Bring to Light? Etched Oracle?

Anyway, I love the idea and the execution, and I don't want to dilute it too much. Beautiful work!

I had an Ezuri, Claw of Progress EDH deck (the precon) but I transformed it into a Kaseto, Orochi Archmage Snake tribal / unblockable value deck. (link here: Kaseto's Sneaky Sneks (snake tribal) ). And I also have the Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis precon, but that one needs some adjustments. I still want to build around Ezuri, Claw of Progress again sometime, but I hadn't really had time for it because I'm still figuring out what I need to put in Kaseto, Orochi Archmage. Could you take a look at my list and give me some feedback? (and also look at the maybe board, I also wanted to put those cards in. But not all of them ofcourse.) I am also interested in your Ezuri and Kynaios and Tiro lists. Could you post them on tapped out? ^_^. Oh and thanks for upvoting my Battering BoiZ deck ^.^

thijmnesoy: i actually have considered it. My current commanders are Kresh the Bloodbraided, Ezuri, Claw of Progress and Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis, so there is a lot of green going on. I wouldn't want another green commander, though teddy would be pretty interesting.
