It doesnt need it. Being both a creature and a land, it can be slotted into the infinite etb combo. And with Lotus Cobra, it makes infinite mana on entry, rather than on tap. Some neat tech not a lot of people know about.


I've been noticing that a lot recently. Its honestly probably just straight up better than Silence these days. Thoughts on that?

Why no Lotus Cobra?

Hey Goretast, I noticed your strong deck [Primer] Chulane's Bounce House [cEDH] already some time ago ;)

Thanks for your positive feedback and the interesting suggestions: Lotus Cobra and Veil of Summer were also in my sights for quite some time and I would like to take them in for a Forest and a more expensive counter (e.g. Disallow). Destiny Spinner fits really well and could maybe replace Song of the Dryads (which sometimes remained useless in my hand). Triumph of the Hordes would really be a simple include as an additional wincon, but in my playgroups we banned Infect ;(

I am not sure about Sylvan Awakening: After a boardwipe it could be a real surprise with Craterhoof Behemoth, but otherwise it feels more like "win more". In the next games I will check if there were situations where it would have turned a game in my favour...

Interesting take on Chulane. Casual Chulane is great, I'm so used to seeing the walking ballista, labman/Oracle, timetwister combos. I think Destiny Spinner and Veil of Summer would be strong additions to protect your creatures like craterhoof. Lotus Cobra is also pretty nutty without opening up infinite combos (unless you want to add Oboro, Palace in the Clouds). Triumph of the Hordes and Sylvan Awakening are both fun and surprising win-cons that you could easily add.

I have a very similar build myself. I will say one thing that I would add to your list would be Crystal Shard. Awesome for saving your dudes from removal and sets up recasting creatures for even more etb effects. Erratic Portal and Equilibrium have similar effects. Personally, I would add all three of those and maybe cut Blood Seeker, Lotus Cobra, and Meren of Clan Nel Toth (cuts are tricky in these lists - that's just my opinion obviously). Good luck and happy brewing!

Hey, you're welcome. I like the changes.

Good choices to cut mill because not taking enough advantage of self-mill and opponent mill is subpar. Without an infinite mill combo, opponent mill is risky of a strategy when graveyards are a huge resource in Commander. Opponent mill isn't worth it unless winning the game with infinite mill combos from Altar of Dementia or Altar of the Brood where you mill all your opponents libraries on your turn and then each opponent one at a time on their turn dies because they can't draw a card. More self-mill is something to consider later on if you want to take more advantage of Muldrotha with Yarok. Causally Yarok and Muldrotha is a great a team.

I think you can cut some of the high CMC threats. There's some that are not as good as the others. Oblivion Sower, Oran-Rief Hydra, Rampaging Baloths, The Gitrog Monster. Out of these Gitrog is the better one, but I don't think it does enough here because not comboing with it and you cut Excavator. Some cards that could replace these are Diabolic Intent, Fierce Empath, Neoform, Lotus Cobra. With Yarok Empath can tutor for your best two 6+ CMC creatures.

There's too many basic lands in the manabase to support Field of the Dead without having Scapeshift. Flooded Grove, Exotic Orchard, Twilight Mire, Llanowar Wastes, Yavimaya Coast are some options. Flooded is good with the Shrieking + Cloud combo because it can make .
