Spell_Slam on PDH|Lightning Helix on a Mane

I love this deck! That lion is such a great build-around and it's nice to see a decent boros list for once.

In the early and mid-game, you will be doing a lot of cycling and will likely end up with a lot of excess lands that you won't know what to do with. I would recommend playing more red card draw spells that allow you to filter through them to find more cyclers. Cathartic Reunion and Tormenting Voice would fill in nicely.

In terms of protection, I would really recommend both Angelic Renewal and Benevolent Bodyguard. You can put both of these down before your Commander, which gives you layers of protection that you don't need to invest in reactively. Considering how important your Commander is to your strategy, this is definitely worth thinking about. Something like a well-timed Eland Umbra puts your Commander out of most burn range and is also a layer of protection against destroy effects. You might also consider Cho-Manno's Blessing, even if it's WW, the permanent protection at instant speed is as good as it gets.

One really good piece of tech you are missing is Library of Leng. No max hand size is nice, but being able to cycle a card and put on top of your library to draw it again is completely busted. This means that you can re-use the same card over and over again to trigger your Commander's ability for no extra cost. You could be dealing 2 and gaining 2 for as low as 3 mana whever you want.

In terms of removal, I would really rather see a Journey to Nowhere instead of Lightning Bolt. Oblivion Ring also deals with a lot more than Disenchant.Faith's Fetters is pretty much a staple of White Removal in PDH. They are great ways to remove commanders, since you can then pick them up with something like Kor Skyfisher.

Kor Cartographer is another staple ramp spell for White decks. You're scraping the bottom of the barrel with some of your ramp, so this could be an easy swap.

Your hand should stay be pretty full, so Martyr of Ashes could do a lot of work for you.

I don't really like the Pinger sub-theme. Your Commander already represents tons of removal and damage that you have access to at any time. I think those slots would be better served as protection, board wipes and card draw.

I've never played Bonder's Ornament, but it looks... kinda bad. How has it played out in your experience?

Great deck overall!

kpres on Melek, Kinko's Paragon

Auto-include for any Melek deck: Library of Leng. Any time you use a Windfall or wheel, Library lets you stack your deck with stuff for Melek to double.

I have a Melek deck but I'm bored of it. It's ended up being more of a solitaire where I find Proteus Staff and since Melek is the only creature in the deck, the staff lets me reorganize my deck, putting mana-generating spells on top, untapping spells (for my mana rocks) next, getting a buttload of mana, and then using Comet Storm. It's a formula and it's boring for everyone.

I like where you've gone with this deck. You have miracles, extra turns, and interactive stuff. I feel like I would have fun playing against it, not knowing how you're going to win each time.

Sanguinolency on A Level Playing Field: cEDH Kinnan

3 weeks ago

Got some more spicy card suggestions:

Long-Term Plans to ensure you hit the creature you want off of Kinnan's activation

Scroll Rack Would help put the cratures you draw back on top

Consecrated Sphinx for the value engine

Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger because lets be real, the only creatures you'll be casting are dorks.

Palinchron for the same reason.

Phantasmal Image for infinite mana with Palinchron OR copying a dork seems pretty strong

Library of Leng for incidentals

Did you consider Library of Leng? You keep those cards you need in hand while getting Rielle triggers anyway and since it says "MAY" you can discard to the graveyard if you need.
Also the new Surly Badgersaur can help to both generate mana and kill creatures. If you pair this card with Library of Leng it can generate mana consistently while keep the board clean of annoying creatures and some commanders

I’ve just brewed up a very similar build haha! Soon as I saw this card it blew my mind.

I’d strongly recommend Library of Leng - it lets you discard back to the top then draw double with your wheels. If you want to take a look at my deck I’ve just posted it on my profile :)

Spell_Slam on Great depression

Chandra, Flamecaller is excellent in this deck. It is a board wipe, a wheel and occasionally free damage.

Shared Animosity is so good with Locusts. It's usually game over for the whole table when you wheel into it.

Spellbook is not worth running, in my opinion. If you want no max hand size cards, look at Library of Leng, Thought Vessel, or maybe Venser's Journal.

If your friends don't mind you being a little mean, you could play Opposition. You can use your tokens to tap people down during their upkeep and they won't be playing any magic.

Merfolk Looter seems a bit weak for the deck. Invisibility also seems a bit strange. You don't seem like a Voltron deck necessarily. In any case, something like Trailblazer's Boots can give you the effect you need without being a fragile Aura. there are much better counters than Cancel. I like Forbid.

Poly_raptor on Ghired's Pound Town, Siege Mode Edition

I personally am not sure if Guardian Project would be the best option as it specifies “nontoken” and you’re only running 22 creatures, odd are you’re not getting it our til mid game anyway due to CMC.

You could run Camaraderie for a big draw spell. If you do add in Greater Good I’d add in Library of Leng too, they work nicely together because the 3 cards you discard you can just put back on top.

Hour of Reckoning is a very good board wipe,

If this deck creates a lot of 1/1 tokens then Mentor of the Meek and Skullclamp are good continuous draw options.

I’d also add in Cryptolith Rite and you could cut Lotus Cobra as they’re the same cmc, since you’re aim is to have a big board of creatures you may as well turn them into mana, where as the cobra will just net you maybe 2 at best extra mana per turn.
