Nath of the Gilt-Leaf Discussion
1 day ago
My heart beats green but bounces between black and blue when the mood strikes me. Currently running Rishkar, Peema Renegade as my mono green commander. Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord as my Green/Black Golgari Commander, with Nath of the Gilt-Leaf leading an elf tribal discard deck that I am working on. Edric, Spymaster of Trest leads my Simic commander deck, but I often wonder if maybe it would be better in the hands of Prime Speaker Zegana..

Bramblewood Paragon, Butcher of Malakir, Champion of Lambholt, Chief of the Edge, Chief of the Scale, Cliffhaven Vampire, Dragonscale General, Imperious Perfect, Jazal Goldmane, Jedit Ojanen of Efrava, Nath of the Gilt-Leaf, Rhys the Redeemed, Stonehewer Giant, Stonehoof Chieftain, and Tuskguard Captain for Warrior creatures. Then Secure the Wastes and Sylvan Offering for tokens.
That leaves a lot of space for ramp, removal, tutors and win cons or combos.

thanks AIOSDev05. i didnt think Drove of Elves, Nath of the Gilt-Leaf, or Immaculate Magistrate because i feel like the other win conditions are better and i didnt like Elvish Harbinger because it just seemed too slow.

I would advise the use of Drove of Elves, Jagged-Scar Archers, Nath of the Gilt-Leaf, Elvish Champion, Elvish Harbinger, Immaculate Magistrate, and probably an Elvish Mystic or two. Rhys the Redeemed is another typical go-to if you don't care about cost which, it appears, you do not.
It is curious that the majority of your deck's cost comes in the form of lands and off-color sideboard cards rather than putting some of the really heavy hitting elves in the deck.

Nath of the Gilt-Leaf seems more efficient at putting creatures on the battlefield. He's also not a scary, flying 6/6 beatstick and is less likely to get removed on sight.

since its a commander deck this took me a little longer, sorry. I also have a Yidris though so I think I wont be totally lost on this one.
So the biggest things in a Yidris deck is getting combat damage through so you can cascade. You've got a few things in there that do that, however I think you could put in more. Aboshan's Desire is one of my favorites. I would concentrate on getting him through and getting double strike in order to make big plays rather than just increasing pure damage. So I would cut Hero's Blade and Blood Tyrant. Also I don't think Satyr Wayfinder, Rakdos Charm, or Dark Intimations belong.
Also I'm sensing a Windfall and discard sub theme in the deck. While I do like a good wheel effect, and the pre constructed version was built that way, I do think too much of that is unfun for your friends and also not as effective as increasing the consistency of your storm game plan. So if, after adding some of the cards I've mentioned and you're over 100, I'd cut some of the weaker discard and wheel effects like: Nath of the Gilt-Leaf and notion theif are some of the more unfun ones(also they banned leovold for a reason), Dark Deal is the most under powered wheel effect in the deck I think. If you really like the wheel effects, then I think you should forget the storm part and just build a wheel reanimation deck.
I really like the untapping lands concept to fuel your ability to storm off, as such I think you really need Kodama's Reach, Cultivate, and Burgeoning. These, though they seem boring, are absolutely crucial to ramp so you can have one big explosive turn. That said, when you add more land finding you can go down on land. I would say 37 is a good number. Also some a good couple of lands to have would be Cabal Coffers (or Magus of the Coffers and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth.
Some really good storm cards you can add are: Magus of the Will and Yawgmoth's Will (similar to past in flames), Shrieking Drake can bounce itself and you will get as much storm count as you have blue mana, other cascade cards like Bloodbraid Elf,Shardless Agent, and Maelstrom Wanderer are good for casting a lot of spells, the black and blue versions of the expertise cycle Yahenni's Expertise and Baral's Expertise are very good.
I hope this helps, if you have any questions about my ideas, just ask.

Hello, everybody! I want to start my experience in commander with one between Nath of the Gilt-Leaf and Teneb, the Harvester. What i'm asking you is which is the best in a vacuum for this format and, most important, which is the best for a beginner.
