Quicksilver Amulet Discussion

Thank you for the reply!
- Archetype of Endurance - I ran this for a short bit, and almost never cast it in lieu of something else. After 10+ games of it essentially being a dead card, I took it out.
- Krosan Drover / Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma - I've never consideres doing cost reduction for this deck, as it doesn't help with kamahl's abilities. I prefer ways to generate more mana as it helps to the flow of the deck. I do run goreclaw in my animar deck though because its an amazing card.
- Quicksilver Amulet - great card, I'll have to playtest it and see how it goes.
- Garruk's Horde - I ran this early on and took it out. At 7cmc, odds are I won't cast anything else the turn I cast this. So my opponents will have extra knowledge of what'd in my hand with no immediate payoff.
- Engulfing Slagwurm - I love this card and ran it for a long time. It never survived a round before getting nuked. I may consider putting it back in though because its fantastic.

Greetings I just wanted to provide some (possibly suboptimal) card that I personally like in my green decks.
- Archetype of Endurance to shield yourself and expose everyone else ( this can lead to fun times )
- Krosan Drover for a nice discount ( or Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma )
- Quicksilver Amulet to cheat things out
- Garruk's Horde Can be a nice thing if you don't mind people seeing what is coming up, you can spam things.
- Engulfing Slagwurm I'm super glad that this card is still a secret. This thing is OP as hell in my book.

Quicksilver Thanks for the support XD, I couldn't figure out how to add a picture of the meme to the description or I would.
I haven't had enough experience to say whether Aether Vial will or will not work. The only thing is, this deck is EXTREMELY reliant on graveyard recursion, and any GY hate can cripple me, so I wanted to find a few alternatives just in case. I would play 4 copies of things like Quicksilver Amulet or Sneak Attack if I could.
As for ramp, I was back and forth between it. The goal was not to worry about ramping/casting the creatures, just to cheat them. So getting to turn 3 to cast Kaalia is all I was worried about. I wouldn't mind trying out a few different iterations with some ramp (maybe some of the new Talismans for a turn 2 play). Thanks!

Myr Moonvessel feels bad because you’re never going to get the mana when you want it. It’s effectively just going to swing for 1 each turn... which feels pretty average for a 2-drop
I personally feel like Door of Destinies doesn’t give you much value. You don’t have heaps of golem spells, and it’s not like they need much buffing anyway. It feels slow.
I also feel you’re better off just completing Tron than fiddling about with Quicksilver Amulet .
My thoughts are that maybe it’s worthwhile splashing a single colour (either Green, Blue or White) to get some better value and buffs for your Golems (aside from your Tron lands, the rest could easily just be a basic land instead to make the rest of your deck better)
Splashing Blue offers Whir of Invention to tutor for key pieces, letting you run lots of single-copies of cards and fetching up the one you want. It’d also let your Golems take to the skies with Wing Splicer .

Appreciate the suggestions Ill switch some things out for these. The reason for cards like Radiant in my deck is for the mass army of tokens. By using Steel Overseer I give +1/+1 to Myrs, Tendershoot Dyrad for Saprolings, and Radiant for one of the other tokens depending on how my field is going so I have more power per token and reduce my opponent's chances of surviving even if they are also a creature spam deck.
As for cards like Aether, Thran Temporal, and Quicksilver, I've found in my testing my deck has a tendency to give either no mana or only two out of the three types of mana. This is a problem since several cards require 2+ devotion to a certain mana and they are there sort of as insurance to getting out cards like Archetype of Endurance and Avacyn, Angel of Hope . Though I certainely will be putting Elvish Piper in and likely take out Quicksilver Amulet
As for Leyline of Sanctity I'll likely leave it in but add Shalai to add the chance of me getting hexproof, especially since its one less dependence on getting Archetype out with it having such a high cmc.
Appreciate the feedback highly!

Evolution Sage is another great proliferate outlet for you.
You have some cards in here that I don't think really fit. Radiant Destiny doesn't really seem to be worthy of a slot. Intangible Virtue is better, but I'm not sure how important the vigilance aspect of it is for you. Aether Vial , Thran Temporal Gateway , and Quicksilver Amulet I think could be replaced by other cards that better fit what the deck wants to do. If you really want the effect, Elvish Piper does it better. I think I'd cut Leyline of Sanctity . The new Leyline of Abundance fits what you want to do better. If you still want the Leyline of Sanctity effect, Shalai, Voice of Plenty does it better for your deck, in my opinion.
Phyrexian Vault could be replaced with something better and repeatable, like Arguel's Blood Fast Flip or Greed . I'd also consider running cards like Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos to take advantage of sacrificing your creatures.
Hope this helps, and enjoy your Commander experience!

I'm pretty happy that you're pretty happy about it! 12 mana rocks might make you mana-flooded, but that's always better than being mana-screwed! Might I suggest Quicksilver Amulet ($5) to aid in throwing out the big creatures Kaalia grabs? If you can load up more Legendary Angels (There's a TON!), Demons (Some pretty good ones!), and Dragons (On par with Demons!), Thran Temporal Gateway ($0.50) will do the same for less $$$! Helm of the Host ($5) Gives that ETB effect, but the equip can be a bit costly. Deathrender ($2) will punish your opponents for non-exile removal, but I think Kaya's Ghostform ($0.15) would be PERFECT for your deck. Grave Upheaval ($0.50) would give you a bit more recursion from removal as well, and - at worse - help you sort out your mana. Cauldron Dance ($0.15) can do the same AND throw down for cool combat tricks, minus the manafix! Through the Breach ($6) gives you an instant ETB to use for combat and great at surprising your opponents with indestructible or the likes. Sneak Attack ($20) does the same and is repeatable, but suffers from removal and is hecka expensive!
I hope I was able to give some good possibilities that you could consider. Your deck looks great and I like that you're rolling with the new Kaalia!
