Yeah, 13-15 good counterspells sounds like exactly the right amount for a 1v1 competitive format. I can absolutely understand it making a casual playgroup miserable, though.

The Blue Amonkhet God seems fun. Self-inflicted land-bounce reminds me of the moonfolk. Consider putting some moonfolk into the deck (like Tamiyo for sure obviously, but also, Oboro Envoy, Meloku, and Uyo). And then Terrain Generator and Walking Atlas. Maybe Patron of the Moon.

Hi, all. I'm relatively new here, but not new to Magic. However, I was on a long hiatus, and just recently got back into Magic since my kids dug up some of my cards and got interested. Since then, Commander became a thing, and I am hooked on the format. I don't play competitively, mostly casual, and in as big a group I can find (right now its usually 3-4).

To give an idea of when I dropped off the map, it was during the Kamigawa rotation. At that time, I built a casual deck built around getting the hand size up and winging with creatures like Multani, Maro-Sorcerer, Descendant of Masumaro, Masumaro, First to Live, Maro, Sylvan Yeti, and Soramaro, First to Dream.

The idea was to use cards from the Kamigawa block to return lands to my hand, try to draw cards, and hit with the biggies. I ran cards like Oboro Envoy, Oboro Breezecaller, Floodbringer, Elder Pine of Jukai, Soratami Mirror-Mage, Inner Calm, Outer Strength, Graceful Adept, and Soratami Rainshaper. They all had some decent utility in bouncing the land cards. I didn't play EDH at the time, and the deck really never took off for me. I loved the concept behind it, but couldn't really make it work well in a 60-card casual format.

But now, with the possibilities of Commander at hand, I figured there's got to be some way to make this theme work, if not to win, at least to be able to play out for a while. I also had a casual deck I tried to build around Squirrel Wrangler and Groundskeeper, which would fit into a blue/green Commander deck, as well.

So, with all that said, I was hoping I could get some suggestions from the community here as for making this theme EDH-worthy. I'm looking at blue/green primarily, but not exclusively. To start, I need a Commander. I thought maybe Momir Vig, Simic Visionary, but maybe Edric, Spymaster of Trest would be better? Perhaps Tamiyo, Field Researcher?

Another problem I have is after being out for so long, I'm playing catch-up as to what's available. I figured the posters here probably have a good working knowledge of what would fit into a deck themed this way.

Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated. I run fairly budget, but I've got some decent stuff in my collection, and will splurge at times if I think its worth it, so suggest anything.

Thanks for taking the time to help me out!

A Kruphix, God of Horizons Land deck is a great pun. I'd suggest Seedborn Muse to untap your lands each turn (more for Kruphix than land), Roil Elemental is the best Blue land card, some moonfolk like Oboro Envoy to reuse your land, Turntimber Basilisk is nice removal, and every card that references Kruphix (the banned Prophet of Kruphix not withstanding.) Finish it off with Exploration type effects in your price range and I'd play with that deck.

No data for this card yet.
