Lol. I’m not sure I made any good points. The Beast Whisperer is only suggested over Lifecrafter's Bestiary because it synergies with the commander strategy. With decent stats, I can see him attacking to get mana, but it could easily replace the weaker draw pieces. As for Experimental Frenzy , if it is something worth considering, you would probably have to make changes like adding Exploration to get the most out of it. Lastly, I agree with the land destruction argument, except in the niche case of Titania, Protector of Argoth . If you can land her and land destruction, she does all the setup for ending the game fast. She also makes cards like Orcish Lumberjack and Crop Rotation so much better. But, the deck would be different and would have to be geared towards her, which means cuts that I don’t think can be made. Great deck, good luck. P.S Time of Need might not be bad. Finds a couple silver bullets when needed, might be worth including.

Hi,JMCraig! i have some questions if u could help me plz ...

1) Mox Diamond is out of my budget and ive seen u run Mox Amber in cheaper versions. i see them differente since Mox Diamond helps u to come out earlier with animar, but also helps u to deal with removals. dont you see any better options? ( Sol Ring , Orcish Lumberjack , etc)

2) youre the only one who runs gamble... wold like to know if is realy worth it?

3) last but not least, dont u see any potencial slot for Rhystic Study in this deck?

Orcish Lumberjack gets you access to your commander insanely fast! Also Treasonous Ogre is just unfair! Hunter's Insight is also a must to refill your hand as well. Same with Momentous Fall ! Neheb, the Eternal gives you insane amount of ramp that can lead to super shenanigans. Nature's Claim is one of the direct upgrades for removal. Lastly Nature's Will is also an absolute must since you are running other enablers to go infinite combat as well.

Hope that helps!

Wow, this is a really cool list. I'm not sure I've ever seen a build quite like this before; I really like how the land ramp theme informs so many of your card selection choices (like with Lotus Cobra and Seedborn Muse). The only thing I'm really perplexed by is the exclusion of Orcish Lumberjack . It sort of seems like an auto-include to me, don't you think?

Lavinia, Azorius Renegade,

Legendary Creature - Human Soldier (Tutorable by Sissay / and 2 verse counters on Yisan and she's out!

Each opponent can't cast noncreature spells with converted mana cost greater than the number of lands that player controls.

Whenever an opponent casts a spell, if no mana was spent to cast it, counter that spell.


Lavinia seems to purely punish your opponents for cheating things in play with ritual effects or 0 costs. Storm decks tend to draw into a lot of cards and then play their 0 cost artifacts to go positive again and this just outright counters that. While also providing Derevi with a body and only affecting opponents this card seems stronger than the Teeg itself in a way. Although this card only delays certain storm decks until they make the land drop they need but this gives us a lot of time! (Nobody is going to Orcish Lumberjack their forests in Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder or sac lands for mana with Squandered Resources xD). Doomsday becomes less interesting as well with Gush and Lion's Eye Diamond! The cast of cards under Isochron Scepter become countered as well (could be wrong)! I'm sold by this card thank you!

(Also I like the normal art one better but I'll be getting both still as I can probably get my hands on a Japanese foil normal one and the store championship pretty easy! xD)

No worries! I understand finals are a thing haha, no need to rush. I appreciate the time you take to do a well thought out response, besides I only play once to twice a week. Wish it was more but life is also a thing :P

Yes I do wish Bloom Tender can tap for so much things but that is also what Expropriate is for and when they let me take their permanents lol! I feel the same with you on that point, most of the decks that I build with red becomes a splash with your same exact reasoning. My friend made a good point on decks with red in them, they either overtakes the deck to build around them or they only provide slight help to the other colors.

I like the pun you did with the s(t)eal, quite witty good sir.

You are right on the Precognition Field it provides a good engine and since this is a spellslinger deck that extra reach does help quite a bit which thus lead me to keep more of the spell ramp over rocks for now. I was trying to fit in Preordain before, but yes the advantage for digging deep is helps tremendously.

I'm going to consider running Orcish Lumberjack and Imperial Recruiter as what SynergyBuild had suggested before. The burst is quite strong, as well as losing lands isn't as troubling. What I want a perspective on though is that if Ramunap Excavator or Crucible of Worlds worth running as well now.

I'll do some changes and when I collect the cards I'll give you another link to check it out.

So far cards I'm going to pick up is Mana Vault as well as Precognition Field, I have all the other cards and going to do some deck modifications. Thanks again for your insight, I'm excited to try these changes out in a couple days at my LGS!
