Mul Daya Channelers Discussion

Dude! Thank you so much for your constructive feedback and suggestions. I really appreciate it, as I want this Deck to be as good as it can be. I would love to see your build,but I didn't see it on your page.
Let's see, where to start. I agree the Birds of Paradise could be cut, but I believe hexproof/ramp creatures are better than mana rocks in this build as they offer a mana dork that has great evasion, can be enchanted to be made bigger, and can attack and/or block, therefore, better than artifacts that won't trigger my enchantresses. Land Tax not only allows me to pull all of the extra basic lands out of my deck, but also allows me to change the top card of my deck if I don't like what I see there with the Courser of Kruphix, Mul Daya Channelers, or Vizier of the Menagerie.
Quietus Spike, Grafted Exoskeleton again, not enchantments, and not cohesive to enchantress build. therefore inferior to bow and spear. Also, Spear of Heliod double as buff and removal. Bow of Nylea quintuple action, lifegain, removal, recursion, buff, and deathtouch.
Mana rocks, again, not enchantments. Frontier Siege, you ask?? it provides an extra 2 green mana during first main phase, and Another 2 green mana on 2nd main phase. that's 4 mana per turn. how can you top that for ramp?
Femeref Enchantress? Boardwipe insurance indeed, also every time anyone kills an enchantment I get to draw a card, including when I do it....Card draw = more cards in hand, no matter where it comes from. Speaking of card draw, I should prolly add the Reliquary Tower good call.
Gift of Immortality is one that's been in and out of the deck again and again, I like it, but there are so many good cards to choose from, and it seems to keep getting cut, I'll try it again. Replenish is great, however I don't have it, and it's pricey. Umbra Mystic I have and again, she's in and out depending on how I feel that day, or if I'm doing multiplayer, vs 1v1.
Bronzehide Lion I haven't pulled yet, And while indestructible is good, it doesn't have hexproof like it's older counterpart, Fleecemane Lion and is as such, inferior, plus it's situational, as you have to have open mana to use it's abilities, plus the loses other abilities clause is kinda weak.
I think I have Sigil of the Empty Throne I can give that a try as well. The other cards, I don't have, But I will consider them.
Again, thanks for the feedback, and I would love it if you wish to try and change my mind on any of these suggestions.

1) It is always difficult to make this decision. I would say if you are happy with your deck compared to your playgroup there is no need to just chuck more money at it.
2) Artifact removal in green should not be a worry there are plenty cards to do so i would be more worried about creature removal, Song of the Dryads Acidic Slime & Beast Within are great removal versatile removal for mono green
6) Sword of the Paruns Umbral Mantle and Staff of Domination any of these combined with your commander when she as a few counters on her makes unlimited mana! (also will work with Wirewood Channeler , Elvish Archdruid and Priest of Titania )

If you aren't Super stuck on it being elves only I would suggest adding Karametra's Acolyte , it's such a huge mana dork and since you are playing elves, Wirewood Lodge is a must have, you can use 1 mana to untap your Elvish Archdruid for even more mana. Mul Daya Channelers are pretty bad in my opinion, I've tried them, they are only occasionally good mana dorks, so along with Mul Daya Channelers you cut 1 forest for the Wirewood Lodge and I think it would make this deck stronger over all.

We gave your request a lot of thought. Our main objective was to keep the spirit of the deck the same. So we decided to try and find replacements for the more expensive cards while keeping the original thought of the replaced cards alive. Naturally this would mean we would end up with cards that are either slightly less effective at what the expensive cards do, or they have a higher CMC, or both.
Almost all replacements we have chosen cost below 1 dollar. Some of the replaced cards are cards we do not own, so we decided not to post a new deck as we only do so when we own all the cards in it. So, here is a list of the replacements we would make in order to turn this into a less expensive deck:
- Forest for all the non-basic lands
- Hermit of the Natterknolls Flip for Beast Whisperer
- Ivy Lane Denizen for Bloodspore Thrinax
- End-Raze Forerunners for Craterhoof Behemoth
- Wirewood Channeler for Elvish Archdruid
- Skullwinder for Eternal Witness
- Rushwood Herbalist for Ezuri, Renegade Leader
- Evolutionary Leap for Fauna Shaman
- Elfhame Druid for Fyndhorn Elves
- Deadly Recluse for Hornet Queen
- Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen for Joraga Warcaller
- Ant Queen for Mycoloth
- Nullmage Advocate for Nullmage Shepherd
- Centaur Rootcaster for Oracle of Mul Daya
- Thunderfoot Baloth for Pathbreaker Ibex
- Mul Daya Channelers for Priest of Titania
- Initiate's Companion for Quirion Ranger
- Runic Armasaur for Regal Force
- Yavimaya Elder for Sakura-Tribe Elder
- Llanowar Scout for Sakura-Tribe Scout
- Deathgorge Scavenger for Scavenging Ooze
- Fyndhorn Brownie for Scryb Ranger
- Rampaging Baloths for Seedborn Muse (we know, not quite the same functions)
- Archetype of Endurance for Asceticism
- Overrun for Beastmaster Ascension
- Abundance for Burgeoning / Exploration
- Beast Within for Song of the Dryads
- Nature's Claim for Krosan Grip
- Vitalize for Benefactor's Draught
- Shared Summons for Green Sun's Zenith / Genesis Wave
- Mask of Avacyn for Lightning Greaves / Swiftfoot Boots
- Sol Ring for Worn Powerstone
We were not able to find suitable replacements (i.e.: cards that would do the same thing but be slightly less effective at it) for the following cards:
- Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger
- Concordant Crossroads
- Mirri's Guile
- Quest for Renewal
- Heroic Intervention
- Worldly Tutor
- Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury
- Lifecrafter's Bestiary
- Sensei's Divining Top
- Umbral Mantle
So if you have any suggestions for these, please let us know. For now, we hope we helped you a bit to make a cheaper version of our deck. Have fun brewing it!

Thanks for taking a minute to make suggestions. I agree Celestial Archon is not good, too much cmc. Boon Satyr I'm always on the fence about, I feel like it could be useful, but it honestly never seems to make a difference in the outcome of the game. Vizier of the Menagerie I feel could be useful though, I have a lot of other cards that manipulate the top of my library, Mirri's Guile , Courser of Kruphix , Mul Daya Channelers , Sylvan Library , and if I don't like what I see there, I use a fetch land or something to shuffle the deck.
I'm def going to try and get my hands on a Serra's Sanctum , and maybe a Selvala, Heart of the Wilds though, those seem solid for sure. I'll do some searching and see what I can scrounge up for a lil more ramp. Cheers!~

Alright so I gave the deck a couple play tests. 34 lands is decent enough for a control deck, you might want to consider running 35-36 if you don't want to add any low drop dorks. Some card changes I would consider actually would be:
- Solemn Simulacrum -> Windfall
- Utopia Sprawl -> Wild Growth
- Animate Dead -> Elvish Mystic
- Joiner Adept -> Llanowar Elves
- Utopia Tree -> Birds of Paradise
The reason for the changes above is that I noticed for the IsoRev combo, you don't run the unfair mana rocks so getting it to trigger +3 or more mana early game is quite difficult which is why more dorks may be needed. Animate Dead is awkward unless you want to use it to steal other people's shenanigans, but as of now doesn't further your gameplans. Joiner Adept is okay, but doesn't ramp you and fixing mana base isn't too bad when you have dorks. Utopia Sprawl is awkward when you don't have a developed mana base so getting it on a forest is a bit harder, Wild Growth makes a decent change until you have access to fetches and duals. Solemn is usually alright, but with no outlet to constantly draw cards, Windfall would be a tad bit better to fill your grave for delve as well as hand disruption and CA.
I am a bit iffy on Mul Daya Channelers but I can see why it's in there. I just don't like revealing the top card of the library if there is no additional effect that digs you deeper like for ex. Oracle of Mul Daya or Vizier of the Menagerie. If you do switch it out you can use that as a flex spot for more tutors or maybe Green Sun's Zenith/Diabolic Intent.
Aside from that, whether or not it's worth buying is dependent on you. If you love the deck than of course! Imo, when you own the deck and spend the time revising and making it the best to suit your style of play, that's when the true value of the deck comes forth. I have been playing my Teneb and Intet deck since I got into EDH over 4 years ago, they had gone over more than 20 iterations but the journey and memories there are irreplaceable to me and was well worth it.
Hope that helps! ^^

Big smashy Naya decks can be a ton of fun! It kinda depends on what direction you want to take the deck, but if you're looking at the classic 'power 5 or greater matters' theme, here are some suggestions:
Remove: Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh Flip: This deck focuses more on casting big creatures, so the likelihood of flipping Chandra is very low. Firemane Angel: Very expensive for her effects. Better creatures and lifegain can be found. Gigantosaurus: Hilarious card, but the 5 green will be super hard to get in a three color deck. Legion Loyalist, Legion Warboss, and Ajani's Welcome: These cards are all geared towards a 'go-wide' playstyle that encourages lots of small creatures. That's not how Naya usually plays, and most of the rest of your deck isn't set up to support them. Light of the Legion, Swiftblade Vindicator, Dawn of Hope, Path of Discovery, Prodigious Growth, Urban Utopia, Bounty of Might, Flower / Flourish, Boros Keyrune, and Selesnya Cluestone: These are all cards that either don't mesh great with the rest of the deck, or are decent, but have cards that can usually do the same thing better.
Big Boyz: Meglonoth: Great power for 6 mana, and can really pump out damage both attacking and blocking each time around the table! Mycoid Shepherd: Pretty decent source of lifegain. Paleoloth: Graveyard recursion. Spearbreaker Behemoth: Gives your important stuff indestructibility! Spellbreaker Behemoth: Can absolutely wreck blue control. Woolly Thoctar: 5/4 for 3. Nuff said. Bull Cerodon: Really solid creature to keep bashing your opponent's with. Godsire: Can be hard to play, but will generate an insane amount of value if it stays in play. Stalking Vengeance: When your stuff dies, so do your opponents! Victory's Herald: massive boost to your field, especially with lifegain.
Mana Ramp: Gruul Signet and Selesnya Signet: Some of the best ramp for three color decks. Drumhunter, Exuberant Firestoker, Sacellum Godspeaker, and Sunseed Nurturer: Can be okay as ramp, while also synergizing with your theme. Mul Daya Channelers: can be either a 5/5, or help you ramp into one. Somberwald Sage, Beastcaller Savant, Birds of Paradise, Channeler Initiate, Chromatic Lantern, Commander's Sphere, Draconic Disciple, Llanowar Elves, Atzocan Seer, and Drover of the Mighty: All permanents with useful ramp abilities, some of which even have a few other potential synergies. Traverse the Ulvenwald, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Yavimaya Elder, Harrow, Journey of Discovery, Gift of Estates, Cultivate, Caravan Vigil, and Collective Voyage: Cards with varying effects that let you search up lands from your library.
Utility: Asceticism: Lots of protection for your board. Anger and Fires of Yavimaya: gives all of your creatures haste. Signal the Clans: Great tutor card for creature based decks. Loxodon Warhammer and Behemoth Sledge: Trample and lifegain on a stick. Domri Rade: Card draw, repeatable fighting, and a crazy ult. Deafening Clarion, Austere Command, Earthquake, Mizzium Mortars, Comet Storm, and Savage Twister: All have the potential to be near one-sided boardwipes.
Lands: Ancient Ziggurat: With a focus on creatures, this card is usually really useful. Command Tower: Should be in every commander deck. Naya Panorama and Jungle Shrine Kessig Wolf Run: Extra damage and trample. Contested Cliffs: Repeatable fighting for your beasts.
There are probably more suggestions I could make, and certainly not all of these cards need to go in. Just some different ideas for you to consider!
