Neheb, the Eternal is for the infinite combats Aurelia, the Warleader in conjunction with Aggravated Assault. After you deal 6 damage due to Aurelia's double combat phase, you can go into infinite combats and infinite red mana.

Read Ward of Bones, you are denying them of resources. For , that is easily accessible in colorless mana or burst rituals, a T1 or T2 Ward of Bones stops people cold.

Possible cards that can be cut:

Cards that needs to be cut:

For land base, you should keep it to 32 or 33. All 7 fetches, Dual Land, Shockland, Command Tower, Reflecting Pool, Mana Confluence, City of Brass, Exotic Orchard, Battlefield Forge, Cavern of Souls, Rugged Prairie, Ancient Tomb, Gemstone Caverns, Clifftop Retreat, Strip Mine, Buried Ruin, Command Beacon, Flagstones of Trokair. Emeria can be cut.

Sicktoid on Cheap, Effective, Generic: 5c Manabase

6 days ago

The Vivid Lands (Vivid Creek etc) and Shards' and Khans' block Trilands (Arcane Sanctum etc) are always what I go to when I gotta build a 5-color mana base. They are dirt cheap and very effective for making sure that you got access to all your colors. The old standard 5-color control decks of Lorwyn/Shadowmoor era were playing Cloudthreshers and Cruel Ultimatums in the same deck, thanks to the Vivid Lands combined with Reflecting Pool. That's a quadruple green spell combined with UUBBBRR mana cost and really is a testament to those lands' power.

Randomsome1 on Atraxa's Zombie Infestation

1 week ago

I haven't done a lot of research on zombies, but I learned from my old token deck that it takes a lot of trial and error to get the balance between token producers, pump spells, and abusers.

I think you haven't taken as much advantage of the colors you have. Green has a lot of cards that syngerize with tokens and white has the best removal and board wipes

I haven't looked at prices with these suggestions. Also, you don't have to listen to me at all

Add:

Josu Vess, Lich Knight - With green to help you ramp, this deck has a better chance of kicking him than other zombie decks. Open the Graves - More Tokens. Underrealm Lich - Card draw is always good. Varina, Lich Queen - Card draw, more tokens, and some lifegain to help keep you healthy for those life costs. Kodama's Reach, Rampant Growth, etc - I always feel like land ramp is more reliable than artifact ramp, especially in green, but this is just preference. You do seem to be lacking a bunch of ramp to keep those activated abilities from slowing you down. Death Baron - Another lord, but gives deathtouch too Carrion Feeder - Free sac outlet, if you are looking for one.

Pontiff of Blight - If you have solid ramp, giving all your creatures extort can get really dumb. Graveborn Muse - Might kill, but you will draw your entire deck with the right board state. Risen Executioner - Another lord with recursion Corpse Harvester - Tutor a zombie and a land. Noxious Ghoul - Could be spicy 1 sided board wipe Phyrexian Crusader - Possible 1 shot, but only if you have the right amount of pump. Shepherd of Rot - Could kill everyone. Good way to get around pillow fort and fogs. Raving Dead - Fun spice. Balthor the Defiled - Pretty good recursion. Right now Archetype of Imagination is the only non black creature. Dralnu, Lich Lord - You don't have that many instants and sorceries, but what you do have is strong. I think it reduces Army of the Damned's Flashback. Boneknitter - Tribal protection. Anguished Unmaking, Swords to Plowshares, Counterspell etc - some single target removal is always useful, and you are in amazing colors for it. I have this problem with my dragon deck. Second Harvest, Parallel Evolution - One time token doublers Craterhoof Behemoth, Overrun, Triumph of the Hordes - Ends games. Bramble Sovereign - Not a zombie, but this can do WORK. City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Reflecting Pool - 4 colors needs as much color fixing as possible. Esper Panorama - OK fetchland Krosan Verge - Underestimated fetch imo Fecundity - Crazy card draw Austere Command Merciless Eviction Cleansing Nova - A few more wipes. But these let you interact with artifacts and enchantments that this deck does not seem to do well.

Remove:

Stronghold Assassin - effects like Dictate of Erebos, Grave Pact, and even Attrition are just better. Archetype of Imagination - I appreciate that you are trying to deal with a weakness in the deck while giving your creatures evasion. But, aren't zombie's looking to die for LTB effects? It also costs a lot. Grave Betrayal - Costs a bit too much for me, but a strong effect. I'm up in the air about this. Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord - Might be rough to cast in 4 colors Conspiracy - I might be missing something, but almost all of your creatures are zombies already. Skullbriar, the Walking Grave - Just seems like a beat stick that is hard to pump up. Vulturous Zombie - easier to pump up, but still feels like just another beat stick.

multimedia on Mayael the Anima

Hey, looks good, looks fun.

Consider adding these cards:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Colossus of Akros
  • Emrakul, the Promised End
  • Nylea, God of the Hunt
  • Primordial Hydra
  • Ulvenwald Hydra
  • Brutalizer Exarch
  • Collected Company
  • Eerie Interlude
  • Panharmonicon
  • Boundless Realms
  • Primal Surge
  • Rout
  • Release the Gremlins
  • Boros Garrison

Consider these cards to make the deck more competitive:

Rack is busted with Mayael. You can repeatedly use cards in your hand to set-up the top of your library so when you look at the top five with Mayael you'll always have a creature to cheat into play. Sneak is excellent as an alternative way to cheat big creatures onto the battlefield while giving them haste. The Eldrazi: Kozilek and Ulamog are among the biggest and best creatures to cheat into play. Annihilator is busted with haste and when these Eldrazi/Blightsteel are sac EOT they go back into your library.

Competitive Commander manabases use Fetch lands. They're especially good with three, four and five color decks because they give you so many choices of lands since they can tutor for dual lands. ETB tapped lands are not what you want to play when being competitive. You want all your lands to ETB untapped so you can use the mana they provide the turn you play them otherwise you'll get too far behind, not able to cast spells. Consider these lands for a more competitive manabase: Fetch lands, Shock lands (already have them), Battle lands (already have them), Battlebond lands, Filter lands, Check lands, Rainbow lands?

Fetch lands:

Battlebond Lands:

Filter Lands:

Rainbow Lands:

Other Lands:

Consider this more competitive manabase example:

  • Ancient Tomb
  • Arid Mesa
  • Bloodstained Mire
  • Bountiful Promenade
  • Canopy Vista
  • Cinder Glade
  • Clifftop Retreat
  • Command Tower
  • Fire-Lit Thicket
  • Flooded Strand
  • Homeward Path
  • Mana Confluence
  • Kessig Wolf Run
  • City of Brass
  • Reflecting Pool
  • Rootbound Crag
  • Rugged Prairie
  • Sacred Foundry
  • Spire Garden
  • Stomping Ground
  • Sunpetal Grove
  • Temple Garden
  • Reliquary Tower
  • Windswept Heath
  • Wooded Bastion
  • Wooded Foothills
  • Yavimaya Hollow
  • 5 Forest
  • 2 Plains
  • 1 Mountain

Good luck with your deck.

Your mana curve peaks at 4 mana and you have Mirari's Wake, so it might be interesting to invest in 2-mana land ramp options, so you can cast your 4-drops on turn 3 to get your plan going. I suggest Nature's Lore and Farseek. Gyre Sage grow up and ramp quickly, while Rishkar, Peema Renegade can put the first counter on creatures so you can proliferate them and tap them for mana when needed. I would take out Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper (you need to hit someone to profit on her - she is better on a lifegain/token deck), Primal Amulet  Flip (you don't have many essential sorceries to be copied) and Custodi Soulbinders (a really slow card) for them. // Orzhov Advokist serves double duty: she deters opponents from attacking you if they accept the offer, and also put counters on your creatures for free. Inexorable Tide is free proliferate while you cast your spells. Lim-Dul's Vault is a better tutor than Diabolic Tutor (maybe you should run both). // I would also upgrade the removal package to make it more versatile: Utter End instead of Sylvan Reclamation, Anguished Unmaking instead of Viridian Corrupter (if you want to win with infect, you have to fully commit to it), Abzan Charm (great versatility) instead of Mortify. Swan Song (better because cost less) or Arcane Denial instead of Mystic Confluence (5 mana is a lot to hold in a proactive deck). If you need even more removal, Beast Within and Swords to Plowshares are cheap ones to pick. // In terms of finishers, you could swap out Tuskguard Captain for Herald of Secret Streams. Odric, Lunarch Marshal has great synergy with Atraxa, Praetors' Voice. Champion of Lambholt, Managorger Hydra, Chasm Skulker and Cathars' Crusade require quick answer, or else they win you the game. // In the card advantage department, Bred for the Hunt, Path of Discovery (also create counters), Shapers of Nature (also create counters), Zameck Guildmage and Etched Oracle are repeatable draw while Rishkar's Expertise, Prime Speaker Zegana, Painful Truths and the aforementioned Abzan Charm are 1-shot card draw. I recommend replace Manifold Insights and Mirrorweave with Rishkar's Expertise and Prime Speaker Zegana. It is important to have about 10 ramp sources, 10 draw sources, 5 target removal and at least 3 boardwipes, and you should look for cards that can do more than 1 thing (like Abzan Charm) because they are the most versatile (therefore valuable) cards in your deck. // Guildmages' Forum is a strict upgrade over Opal Palace, because it can put counters on other creatures. I would also reduce the number of tapped lands in the deck, so you can reliably play something on turn 2. Blossoming Sands, Thornwood Falls, Tranquil Cove, Azorius Chancery, Dreadship Reef (doesn't provide colors right away) should be the first ones to be swapped. Some nice cards that enter the battlefield untapped are Caves of Koilos, Llanowar Wastes, Yavimaya Coast, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Reflecting Pool, Bountiful Promenade, Sea of Clouds, Morphic Pool, Gavony Township, Watery Grave, Hallowed Fountain, Godless Shrine, Breeding Pool (the last 4 are all getting reprinted).

Isn't 33 lands a little too low for a 4.28 CMC 5-color deck that runs a lot of X spells? Since you're running Burgeoning, Exploration and Mirari's Wake, you'll be better upping land count to 37-38 and running land ramp on form of Farseek, Nature's Lore, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Skyshroud Claim, Hunting Wilds (they all can grab non-basic lands). Some lands you might consider are Exotic Orchard, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Reflecting Pool, Sea of Clouds, Morphic Pool, Luxury Suite, Spire Garden, Bountiful Promenade. You can take out the less synergistic cards, like Rattleclaw Mystic and Crystalline Crawler.

Somebody on UB Shared Fate

2 weeks ago

I'm revisiting this deck after a long period of neglect and have had a couple ideas -

A bit pricy but Reflecting Pool seems like it could be a little more consistent than Exotic Orchard. With a manabase tweak toward Unclaimed Territory or Vivid lands it can make rainbow mana pretty often. On the other hand Exotic Orchard is on-budget but essentially produces {1} before Shared Fate and is good for the opponent if they draw it.

Unmoored Ego specifies 'target opponent' so we can really cripple some decks and then after Shared Fate the opponent won't want to cast it on us because they're taking our cards.

Tn a similar vein to Flashback the new Aftermath cards are great since the opponent never gets to cast the bottom half. Farm / Market Never / Return and maybe Cut / Ribbons seem like the best ones for Shared Fate.

I've also been considering a light white splash for more sweepers (Supreme Verdict / Porphyry Nodes) and a lot of sideboard hate cards like (Rest in Peace or Stony Silence). Adding white significantly increases the price of the deck though, especially since fetchlands would become necessary.

First changes maybe something like:
-4 Swamp
-3 Island
-1 Mystic Speculation
-1 Murderous Cut
-1 Dismember
-2 Brainspoil
-2 Spell Pierce

+4 Reflecting Pool
+1 Vivid Creek
+1 Vivid Marsh
+4 Serum Visions
+2 Never // Return
+1 Unmoored Ego
+1 Shared Fate
