multimedia on Thrasios, Triton Hero // Tymna the Weaver

Hey, nice version of Thrasios/Tymna :)

Lots of expensive price cards and interesting interactions here, but the manabase is not good. 17 of the 34 lands ETB (enter the battlefield) tapped which is too many for a $600+ deck. The manabase doesn't match the rest of the deck. The Temples, Vivid lands and ETB tapped Fetch lands are not competitive lands. If you're wanting to improve the casual competitiveness of your deck my advice is upgrade the manabase.

Some lands to consider adding:

These are the least expensive price playable land options in these four colors. In fact many of these land suggestions can be further upgraded with more expensive price lands. Adding a Nature's Lore can also help because it can search for one of Pool, Tomb, Garden or Vista.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Vivid Creek
  • Vivid Grove
  • Vivid Meadow
  • Bad River
  • Flood Plain
  • Grasslands
  • Gateway Plaza
  • Temple of Deceit
  • Temple of Enlightenment
  • Temple of Malady
  • Temple of Mystery
  • Temple of Plenty
  • Temple of Silence

Hey, nice start, well made first version.

I think it's a mistake to play more Forests and Islands than Swamps because you need Swamps more than any other lands to play Zombies. Consider less Forests, less Islands replacing with more Swamps and dual lands? Lands within the deck's budget to consider adding:

Undead Augur and Cryptbreaker are great tribal Zombie cards. I especially like the interaction of these Zombies with Gravecrawler . Cryptbreaker is an engine for Zombie tribal which is busted for a one drop. Carrion Feeder is another one drop Zombie who has good interaction with Gravecrawler and Augur. Plague Belcher has a good Zombie tribal ability. Wonder is powerful when you have discard outlets, good with Island dual lands (Watery, Breeding, Sunken and Fetid). Buried Alive can tutor for Gravecrawler and Wonder and put them into your graveyard. Having another way to tutor for Gravecrawler and other Zombies and get them into the graveyard is helpful to play them with Muldrotha. Deathrite Shaman is not a Zombie, but its a great versatile card in multiplayer Commander. Mystic Remora and Animate Dead are excellent cards to replay with Muldrotha.

Some cards that are within the deck's budget that are upgrades:


Cards to consider cutting:

  • 4x Forest
  • 4x Island
  • Rampant Growth
  • Murder
  • Razaketh's Rite
  • Diabolic Tutor
  • Gilded Lotus
  • Liliana, Untouched By Death
  • Risen Executioner
  • Soulless One
  • Curse of the Bloody Tome
  • Dread Summons
  • Graf Harvest
  • Kindred Dominance
  • Havengul Lich
  • Noosegraf Mob
  • Kodama's Reach

Consider cutting Ashnod's Altar , Altar of Dementia and Door of Destinies to clear enough price to add Phyrexian Altar ? Because of having Gravecrawler then Phyrexian Altar is a big upgrade since it can make colored mana which can combo with Gravecrawler and another Zombie. Good luck with your deck.

multimedia on Help with Meren plz

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. enigmadox gave you great advice; I'll expand on it some.

Include budget creatures who can sac themselves because these creatures can give you experience counters without needing a sac outlet which is another card. Needing both a creature and a sac outlet to sac that creature is more difficult to get then just needing a creature. Sac outlets are also good and you should include them, but they're not as important in my opinion as creatures who can sac themselves.

Four drop Meren can benefit from early game ramp to be able to possibly play her turn three. Budget mana dorks can be ramp in the early game or sac fodder in the mid/later game to get experience counters.

Budget lands to consider adding:

Other budget cards to consider adding:

If you like some of these suggestions I offer advice on cuts to make. Good luck with your deck.

Balinor5 on Exploring the Citadels Reservoir

I'd replace a couple Llanowar Elves with Elves of Deep Shadow . If you can get the Wayward Swordtooth that'll help with extra lands, but that card is expensive, but then you can run 1 copy of Mortuary Mire . Llanowar Wastes are cheaper options than the Overgrown Tomb , and probably won't hurt you in the long run. Another great card for this is Autumnal Gloom  Flip, to mill excess lands (the goal is to go off with your combo, and never have to flip it).

Cool deck if you can get the combo to go.

JoosetheMuice on Doran the Angry Ent

I would cut a board wipe, maybe two. I'd also drop a land. Abzan Banner is a strictly worse Commander's Sphere . Solidarity is the one combat trick you are missing. I really don't Huatli is even worth it in here to be honest, shes pretty underwhelming. I think Darksteel Plate would be nice if you can get it, protecting Doran is key and its better than hyena umbra. I also love Read the Bones and Snuff Out in most black decks. Sylvan Reclamation is also really strong. I'd run that or Return to Dust . Crod would recommend Crush Contraband over return but I prefer the former.

As for creatures

I think Sapling of Colfenor would be good. Pontiff of Blight seems kinda fun. Karametra, God of Harvests . Oblivion Sower is something a little unconventional that I like, and World Breaker could also be worth a shot.

Shock lands are cheap right now, I'd try to grab an Overgrown Tomb and a Temple Garden at $5.. Llanowar Wastes is also only like a buck.

Cut Abzan Charm Grim Contest Magnigoth Treefolk and Dauntless Dourbark theyre bad

Hey, I think the Tri lands are better than the Storage lands. Even though they come into play tapped, after that being able to make one of three different colors of mana is very helpful with a four color manabase. Mirrodin's Core and Tendo Ice Bridge are budget and they ETB untapped. Either can tap for colorless with/without a counter or with a counter they can tap for any one color of mana. These are like Storage lands, but are Rainbow lands that can also take some advantage of proliferate/Doubling Season.

Budget lands to consider adding:

These lands can replace basic lands since 24 basic lands is a lot for a four color manabase. I also recommend adding Fellwar Stone , Farseek and Nature's Lore . Potential early game plays that can help four colors and Farseek/Lore interact with Shock lands. Adding an Overgrown Tomb and Murmuring Bosk would help with these spells. Good luck with your deck.

PhoenixNest on Infinite Everything with -1/-1 counters

Flourishing Defenses is too expensive at 5 mana, maybe swap it out for a pair of Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons . Foul Orchard is too slow as it enters the battlefield tapped.

If you're going for a budget deck, either Llanowar Wastes or Woodland Cemetery is great. If you're on an tighter budget, Jungle Hollow 's a bit better than Foul Orchard. If you aren't building a budget deck, Overgrown Tomb and Blooming Marsh are great options. Also four dual lands is a bit small, eight would probably be the minimum.

Diabolic Tutor is pretty expensive at four mana, and so is Harmonize . Most decks in modern can win on turn four, so trying to find your pieces on turn four is not a good way to utilize your turn. There aren't many tutors in modern, so I'd suggest coming up with a plan B in case you don't have the pieces of the combo.

I'd also suggest running some additional removal with some of these cards: Assassin's Trophy , Abrupt Decay , Fatal Push , and Maelstrom Pulse . Doom Blade is a bit risky if your opponent has a ton of black creatures, and if so will be a dead card in your hand.

Victim of Night and Go for the Throat are great removal cards that are not very good in certain situations. If you are in one of those situations, and if you have a sideboard ready, you can swap them out for the necessary cards.

Hand disruption is also key to make nothing disrupts your combo. 1-2 Collective Brutality , Two-Four Inquisition of Kozilek s and a pair of Thoughtseize s makes for a great discard package. In the sideboard you could also run Duress against noncreature-spell-heavy decks.
