From the sound of your meta, there seems to be a lot of group card draw going on. Make sure to overload on ramp, so you can play the extra cards you draw. Loam Dryad and Saruli Caretaker could be decent turn-1 plays in this deck, since you can tap Emmara the turn she comes down. Wirewood Lodge could also be cool. For low-cmc card draw, I would check out Mask of Memory and Selvala, Explorer Returned for your build. I would also skim the EDHREC page for Emmara.

phycomizard I really like both of those ideas. I'm not sure about Karametra's, I don't know that the devotion is high enough most times to be worth it, but the defenders definitely are. I was considering Gigantosaurus though, which would go pretty well with Karametra's I guess. I'd probably remove the Ramroller and both Loam Dryad's.

Hey, looks good for your first Commander deck. Quite a high budget for your first deck and nice Doubling Season :)

Cards to consider adding:

Most of my suggestions other than Titan and Thunderfoot are to reduce the avg. CMC of the deck which is currently 3.5. As six drops Titan and Thunderfoot are worth their mana cost. If you reduce the avg. then you can theoretically play cards faster in a game which means you can get token value from Emmara faster.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Blossoming Sands
  • Graypelt Refuge
  • 2x Plains
  • 2x Forest
  • Isochron Scepter: not enough 2 or less mana instants
  • Blinding Angel
  • Steelshaper Apprentice
  • Akroma, Angel of Wrath
  • Auriok Salvagers
  • Darien, King of Kjeldor
  • Devout Chaplain
  • Odric, Master Tactician
  • Reya Dawnbringer
  • Crackdown
  • Lurking Predators
  • Zendikar Resurgent
  • Sphere of Safety
  • Fountain Watch
  • Condemn

Good luck with your deck.

Nice deck, this is pretty similar to one a friend of mine plays. I definitely recommend more answers for what your opponent can do - creature removal and artifact/enchantment removal is key to answer your opponents threats. Fatal Push, Murder, Naturalize can be huge for making sure your opponent cannot do things you cannot deal with and kill you before you can accomplish your plans. Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger is probably a pipe dream for this deck, Cryptolith Rite or Loam Dryad is highly unlikely to go off and getting to 10 mana with no ramp is very unlikely in a format like modern. From Beyond is also too slow, not only does it not come down until turn 4 but afterwards you're only getting a single token every turn. I would consider removing the top end creatures for cheaper stuff like Rot Shambler. Westvale Abbey  Flip is one of my favorite cards of all time, but since exile is popular in modern it just feels bad to nuke your whole board just to get Path to Exile'd.

Hope this helps!

Dominus, Leader of the Weak

Legendary Creature - Human Warrior (Rare)

First Strike

When a creature with no abilities enters the battlefield under your control, choose one:

Put a +1/+1 counter on target creature you control.

Creatures you control gain +1/+0 until end of turn


And for the picky people:

Rominus, Assitant Leader of the Weak

Legendary Creature - Human Solider (Uncommon)


Two commanders fitting the Budget of the Challenge

Has anyone seen the Intruder Alarm + Emmara, Soul of the Accord + Loam Dryad combo going around online? Make a Commander to put them all together (MUST be for the colors)

Here are some ideas :) Copy Ruric's 6 damage ability using Rings of Brighthearth or Strionic Resonator. Gratuitous Violence would double the 6 damage if you can find the red mana? Have some creatures like Loam Dryad which can tap Ruric down and prevent him from attacking if necessary. Check out creatures with the 'Bloodrush' ability, as it is strong in these colours and you can cast it from your hand as an (instant) activated ability rather than a spell. Stranglehold will give you some control over the combo decks. Lastly if you want some mayhem try Possibility Storm hehe

no Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots to protect your commander? Frontier Siege would be good since you would not lose your mana pool Patron of the Orochi, Carpet of Flowers, Loam Dryad, Citanul Hierophants, Cryptolith Rite, Deconstruct, Elemental Resonance. just some thoughts that could help. also as brutal as omnath is i feel elf tribal or elves and druids would make him even more brutal there are so many ways with them to put mana into your mana pull and fast because they are so cheap.
