Llanowar Mentor Discussion

Evidently, I can't help but give card suggestions:

Additions:

Swiftfoot Boots would be a solid option to consider, or other methods of granting Hexproof. Please note, Shroud is going to be problematic--Scavenge is a targeted ability, so you would not be able to increase Varolz's power if granted Shroud.

Indestructible is another good option. That's not really Black/Green's strong-suit, so Darksteel Plate is probably your best option.

Double strike is fantastic, which you already have.

Flying is quite a good option.

Lifelink is pretty strong. Whip of Erebos is a good option, as you can grab a creature from your graveyard for a last hurrah.

Bear Umbra is a pretty neat little card, providing a power bonus and the ability to cast cards in both main phases.

Empyrial Plate is incredibly mediocre, particularly later in the game.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed seems like a solid option for your commander, as you can sacrifice to regenerate your commander and end up getting a +1/+1 counter out of the deal. If you're running Mikaeus, there's no reason not to have Triskelion as an infinite combo/backup win condition, as it only takes up an extra card.


To remove:

Needle Specter - not really a great card. It's a 1/1 for three mana that requires investment to start being more useful.

Llanowar Mentor doesn't do much for you--it takes two turns before the ramp takes effect. While being able to discard a card can help you, there's better options (Liliana of the Veil comes to mind).

That's all I have time for right now.

I like that suggestion. Ill give it a try. As far as 1 mana creatures as discard outlets theres a few nice options:

Harvest Mage.

Greenseeker.

Cryptbreaker.

Llanowar Mentor.

Putrid Imp.

Ruthless Sniper- well not technically a discard outlet but can be abused with heavy discard/cycling

I think of all these, the imp is the most efficient.

Thanks for upvoting my deck xD but would you be opposed to spellshaper tribal, they are the coolest tribe! They turn your hand into one card!

Here are some of the Modern legal ones:

Llanowar Mentor (Llanowar Elves)

Jaya Ballard, TASK MASTER

Jolrael, Empress of Beasts (Use Anger of the Gods to blow up all of their lands!)

Sparkspitter (Spark Elemental)

Goldmeadow Lookout (Goldmeadow Harrier)

Icatian Crier (Raise the Alarm)

Dreamscape Artist (Harrow)


The best one though:

Mageta the Lion (Wrath of God)

Best non-legendary: Overtaker

Well, here we are again, it's been a week, it's been an absolutely insane week. Rivals of Ixalan is coming, and holy crap does it have a lot of great cards for Tribal Commander Decks. But alas, this is another one of my brain child decks.

so yeah, Spellshapers. Interesting buggers. Rarely printed, usually never used, incredibly in-expensive cards for the most part. Biggest issue is you have to discard stuff you'd otherwise want to keep.

But there are solutions. Card advantage is the biggest issue, but creatures like Damia, Sage of Stone and the almighty blue staple Rhystic Study provide ample card draw to fuel the constant discard, while Llanowar Mentor and Intruder alarm means you can always have your spellshapers up, ready to roll. Ravos enables you to recover your spellshapers if they die, while Thasios enables card draw and ramp. Overall, the deck I feel is pretty optimized for how gimmicky it is, though because of the deck's nature, i'm not sure if I have the right balance of mana sources to recursion.

Comment on Previous deck is on its way.

precociousapprentice on Damia, Sage of Stone - EDH - Spellshapers

Great decklist. I played a non-budget Damia as my first EDH deck. She can be a house in a meta that is not prepared for her. I really like your take, as the spellshapers are a really nice addition. Many of the things in this list can be upgraded from a small increase in the cost, but the spellshapers are a really nice addition that should always stay budget.

From the deck overview video, seems like more ramp and more card draw from other sources may be a good idea. For spellshapers, I would suggest Llanowar Mentor and Krovikan Sorcerer. Both are able to progress your game early and could overcome those problems that we saw during the three games highlighted.

Anyway, +1 from my. Great job again.
