Lifecrafter's Bestiary


At the beginning of your upkeep, scry 1.

Whenever you cast a creature spell, you may pay . If you do, draw a card.

Also, just the one counterspell seems a little irrelevant. you have to luck into drawing it, and then if you cant buy it back, its gone. Would probably look at increasing these, as unless its a mass exile or -1/-1 effect, you should be ok. counterspells stops the big boardwipe threats.

Also, more draw effects ( Vanquisher's Banner , Lifecrafter's Bestiary , Rhystic Study , Phyrexian Arena ) will all help. Also, untap engine with things like Paradox Engine and Intruder Alarm is pretty much draw and play deck if you have a haste and mana sliver out.

Finally, Amoeboid Changeling is hilarious. can steal an opponents commander, or key creature. totally worth it

Sorry, I have written a lot now... I'll go lol

@jpfonseca3 O ramp tá aí pra jogar a Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury o mais cedo possível seguida de uma Genesis Wave gigante.

O Finale of Devastation é realmente uma boa ideia, não tinha nem pensado nele.

De draw tem Beast Whisperer , Skullclamp , Guardian Project , Lifecrafter's Bestiary e Soul of the Harvest , além do próprio Signature Spell. Você acha pouco? O que você recomenda?

Eu não tenho familiaridade com Oathbreaker, esse é o meu primeiro deck e ainda preciso testá-lo extensivamente.

Já vou fazer umas alterações agora, baseadas em sugestões do meu playgroup de commander.

De qualquer forma, obrigado pelo retorno.

Natalbee I have been trying to playtest my own build and find that I lack draw in a lot of cases, so Well of Lost Dreams makes a lot of sense, I'll see if that fits!

I also have been toying with cards like Fecundity , Dawn of Hope , and Vivien, Champion of the Wilds , as well as Inheritance if you want Fecundity all for yourself at a cost. I am going to see if some of those can fit into my build.

The draw problem in my deck is that good cards like Lifecrafter's Bestiary , Vivien's Arkbow , and Beast Whisperer (which might work well for you) only work for creature spells (I only have like 17 creature spells so much less value there).

I actually ran an Infect deck in these colors for a while using Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa and Tymna the Weaver so I can certainly give you some insight based on my own experience.

Tap down effects can help give you an edge to get your Infect creatures in. Blind Obedience , Kismet , and Loxodon Gatekeeper are a few to consider. Behind the Scenes and Mirari's Wake can also be helpful. I would also recommend two of my favorite pump spells Berserk and Hatred to really close out a game. Cards like Guardian Project , Lifecrafter's Bestiary , Sylvan Library , and Necropotence are all major card draw engines.

mana rocks, you don't need them in Mono green, so take out Emerald Medallion , Sol Ring (mono green is the only color that doesn't need this card), Lifecrafter's Bestiary ( Beast Whisperer is better for card draw, you don't really need both) and Seer's Sundial for the same reason. Double season might not be good if Nissa is the only thing you are gonna use it for. it's good if you have token generators and stuff like that also, but you can try it out to see if it works for you, you already own the card you said. if it doesn't work out well, you can take doubling season out again and put one of these cards back in or the new Finale of Devastation (Craterhoof behemoth in sorcery form)

Hey, why do you feel you need to play all low mana cards? More low mana cards than anything else is good deck building, but with Trostani you can take real advantage of some high mana creatures.

Armada Wurm for instance can gain you 10 life and puts a 5/5 Wurm token with trample on the battlefield to populate. It's 10 trampling power on the battlefield for six mana. Opponents need an answer for this. It's really the only budget big creature you need because of it's great interaction with Trostani.

Wayfaring Temple grows as you play more creatures and if he connects for combat damage to a player then you populate. Advent of the Wurm is instant 5/5 Wurm with trample good with populate. Trostani Discordant is an anthem for your other creatures and she creates two 2/2 Solider tokens with lifelink to populate. If any of your opponents steal your creatures, gain control of them, then she gives you back control of your creatures.

When casting a lot of low mana creatures then Beast Whisperer is good repeatable draw. Lifecrafter's Bestiary is other repeatable draw when you cast creatures and scry 1 at upkeep is very helpful. Dawn of Hope is repeatable draw when you gain life for the cost of mana. With Trosanti on the battlefield adding an extra two mana to creatures who ETB lets you draw a card. If life gain is what you're after Soul Warden , Essence Warden , Soul's Attendant are great because they care about any creature that ETB including all your opponents creatures. These cards are good with Dawn of Hope for draw.

If combat with weenie creatures is what you want to do then consider Dauntless Escort , Selfless Spirit , Dauntless Bodyguard and Unbreakable Formation ? These cards can protect your creatures from most board wipes and combat. Rancor is good with little creatures and trample for Phyrexian Processor tokens. Spirit Loop is a upgrade for Lifelink. These auras are nice because when the creature enchanted with one of them dies/exiled or an opponent destroys the aura then the aura goes back to your hand.

Swords to Plowshares , Selesnya Charm , Evolution Charm , Dawn Charm are low mana instants that are good in Commander. Charms give you options and when you can realistically only cast a card once then options are excellent.
