KALE434 thanks for checking out my deck! Anguished Unmaking is not I my deck because, at the risk of a Torpor Orb I get all my removal from 2 power creatures...Recruiter of the Guard is not in my deck because the difference between him and Imperial Recruiter is HUGE in this deck. Most of the time the guy you want to tutor up is a 2/3 or a 2/4.....Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer is new to me but I like him. I will consider him! Sunforger is dead in my deck because I don't run enough instants. Thanks for the thought though!

Hey like the deck just got some suggestions though.Anguished Unmaking for some good cheap removal unless you don't need it for your meta. Recruiter of the Guard if you need more creature tutors since it kinda jams with Alesha's theme. I got one bias card though Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer, I know its not that impresive and you have to work for the anthem effect but i think its fine lol. Oh and maybe Sunforger though this all depends on what you are looking for so yeah, once again awesome deck!

I can see that. Cards like that are tough since they're so powerful against certain decks. I'd say go for it however I assure you that you will immediately play against a Jarad, or Yidris next game :)

Have you considered Recruiter of the Guard, and Fiend Hunter? I'm not sure how good it would be in your deck, but Shaman of Forgotten Ways seems like a fun win-con. I know it's off-flavor, but Woodland Bellower?

The website seems to have decided that many cards originating from Commander products (Thought Vessel, Song of the Dryads, etc) are illegal in commander. Also, Recruiter of the Guard and Mana Crypt.

Just thought I might as well mention it to you.

PookandPie on Gotta HAVE the GURU cause he G(H)AVE you the win

Hi there! I've played Ghave since I started in Commander probably 4 years ago, and I've got some suggestions for you:

Recruiter of the Guard and Birthing Pod would probably serve you better than Diabolic Tutor and Primal Vigor (Recruiter can find Academy Rector, which finds Doubling Season if you require it to combo out, ergo, you don't need as many redundant doubling effects). Parallel Lives could go if you'd prefer to keep Vigor, though, as Lives doesn't really work in too many of the 3-card combos by itself (off top of my head, it only goes infinite with Ghave and Ashnod's Altar, Ghave and Earthcraft, and Ghave and Phyrexian Altar, just like Illusionist's Bracers). Anyway, Recruiter is insane, run him for sure since he finds all but 5 creatures in the deck.

Corpsejack Menace isn't as good as Bloodspore Thrinax. Menace doesn't enable any 3 card combos, while Thrinax can by sacrificing one token (he goes infinite with Ghave and one of Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, and Earthcraft). Ivy Lane Denizen is also just kind of a worse Champion of Lambholt, for whatever that's worth.

Try Devoted Druid over Chromatic Lantern or Coalition Relic. On that mana base, you're not really going to be strapped for colors and Druid goes infinite with Cathar's Crusade as -1/-1 counters and +1/+1 counters cancel out (which also means infinite tokens by casting Ghave).

Blooming Marsh and Phyrexian Tower might be good additions to your mana base, the former especially since it aids in first turn Birds/Elves/Feeder/Seer.

That's about it. I always love Ghave decks, so make sure to have fun with it.
