Perilous Forays Discussion
1 day ago
Exotic Orchard , Forbidden Orchard replaces Vivid Crag , Aether Hub - The synergy with proliferate is great, but not good enough. Ten guildgates in mainboard requires rest of the manabase to be much better than that to avoid being color screwed.
Drown in the Loch replaces Utter End - the complete lack of interaction with the stack killed me a couple of times. For the same reason Dovin's Veto goes to maybeboard. Actually I'm in love with Drown - its almost always hard counter/removal in the game of EDH, the flexibility and efficiency is great and it makes House Dimir better represented in the deck.
Empowered Autogenerator replaces Perilous Forays - I'm not sure what I was thinking. Forays is a great card, but not necessarily in a 5 color deck with 17 targets that is color hungry. On the other hand, Autogenerator is a new all-star of the deck. It self-proliferates after use, costs colorless mana (which can be important when it comes to essentially a ramp spell), comes a turn earlier, just in time to cast Niv-Mizzet on turn 5.
Faeburrow Elder replaces Overwhelming Stampede - Notice the pattern? The deck is so mana hungry, and draws cards so well, so getting to enormous amounts of mana fast can be freaking powerful. It comes a turn after Kiora's Follower while sharing a color, so producing 10+ mana on turn 4 can happen from time to time. I also grew tired of Stampede, being in 75% of my green decks.

Post-scriptum: I just noticed this doesn't say basic land in the search clause. So it is indeed a recurable fetchland... Kinda wish it did say basic land in the search clause. /PS
Cards that basically does the same but don't "pause" (not untap):
While most of these are more vulnerable than say a nonbasic land (depends on the format though) and may or may not require some additional hoop (the Sword and Perilious) or straight out costs more mana or the same amount of mana to output the first land - the pause on this makes it worse than most of these alternatives - even those that don't put them on the field.
You also lock this into just finding one specific type of basic lands. I really think you could buff the card in a few various ways without causing much of an issue.
Either reducing the activation cost, removing the pause-clause (no pun intended) or enabling a way to circumvent the pause-clause.
"Protean Palace enters the battlefield tapped.
As Protean Palace enters the battlefield, choose a basic land type. Protean Palace has the chosen type in addition to its other types.
, : search your library for a basic land card of the chosen type, put it onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library. Put a rest counter on Protean Palace, it doesn't untap during your untap step while it has a rest counter on it.
: Remove all rest counters from Protean Palace.
At the beginning of your upkeep, remove all rest counters from Protean Palace."
Functionally much the same but with an ability to sink more mana into it, to basically become a Journeyer's Kite . The difference is slightly more mana investment in the long run, it being a land, and that it only searches for one type of basic lands - but dumps them onto the field.

Ok. So depending entirely on YOUR meta, I'm not a fan of a bunch of the lands. You have 4-5 of the 'pay 2life or it ETBs tapped'. That's 8-10 life. Sure you got lifelink on a bunch of guys, but cmdr isn't guaranteed. I'd consider swapping those out, unless it was purely because you have those already. Atraxa has 4/5 mtg colors, I'd run the
as stats say your opp will likely be running 2-4 colors, meaning you'll have 1-3 colors in common min.
Your utility lands like the Bastion and Gavony are great choices for this. On the same related note check if you have a Coat of Arms , tribal almost demands you run this card and it can get OP real quick. I ran a Sigarda/human tribal and it wasn't uncommon to have 30 tokens with 30/30ea. They'll still die laughably to a disk or other similar wipe, but meh: 30x 30/30s.
- Assess that Darksteel Plate. I know it is great if you're running 1 fatty, but you should have a s$^&-ton of tokens. I'd consider swapping it for others.
- You got a lot of low CMC instants, but no Isochron Scepter . Consider running this, or sideboarding it. It explains itself.
- The Gilded Lotus. Replace that. Thran Dynamo , Lotus Vale would be my ideas. That or just playtest without another mana rock
- Assess the usefulness of that jellyfish. It seems cumbersome.
- Consider Lord of Extinction . I know Tormod and Dakmor et al can vaporize him with graveyard hate, but otherwise he's pretty solid. Give him trample/first/death/lifelink and ppl will hate you.
- Misc Suggestions: Odric, Master Tactician , Plaguemaw Beast , Anointed Procession , Perilous Forays , Cloudshift , Reclaim , Rootborn Defenses ...Finally EDH staples to assess The Disk, Panharmonicon , Strionic Resonator , Silence , Doom Blade / Murder
- ONE CARD TO ADD NO MATTER WHAT: Primal Vigor . Self-explanatory.
Well...That is all I got at the moment. You're really going heavy tokens so that's fine, just be sure to stay focused and not trying too many different things. :)

Ha nice name! I really dig the low budget on this, especially since the deck looks strong even with the low cost. You might consider giving these cards a try: Snake Umbra , Keen Sense , Perilous Forays , Fallen Ideal , Sadistic Glee , Eternal Thirst , Blade of the Bloodchief

This is a great first draft, especially for someone returning to the game after a long absence. I recommend swapping out the following: Acorn Harvest, Chatter of the Squirrel, Grizzly Fate, Golgari Germination, Spellbook, Vulturous Zombie, Boreal Druid.

Lotus Cobra is a pretty good card especially when paired with Perilous Forays which is already in your deck. You'll more than likely be able to alpha people with just sacrificing your tokens and domeing them.

I feel like you could use more ramp, especially since you're in 5 colors. one of my favorites is Perilous Forays + Omnath, Locus of Rage . you pay and sacrifice one of his elementals for 3 damage and then immediately get a basic to replace it. Also Tyrant of Discord is my favorite etb to abuse among elementals.
