I might be interested in your Rishkar, Peema Renegade.

Would Evolutionary Leap be a better repeatable sack outlet than Starved Rusalka? Snag a creature instead of 1 life and it's generally harder to get rid of?

Rishkar, Peema Renegade plays nicely with handing out counters, especially if you haven't been able to find one of your main mana dorks.

Fun take on an under-used commander. I just picked him up for my Molimo deck and I enjoy that while he isn't the best spirit dragon he's decent in the right build.

CoreGon, these are the very early stages of the newest version. Black may be added back in :) Energy alone can just about support the fourth color of black, but I'm finding consistency issues. I'm in the process of trying to make the fourth color work better using Four-Color Saheeli as a template, that deck is four colors and relies on energy and it's using both Attune with Aether and Oath of Nissa to get and find the lands it needs. I'm mimicking this with a version of Dark Bant.

You're right using the fourth color will make it easier to max out on converge, five colors for both Skyrider Elf and Woodland Wanderer, but we still have to worry about consistency of the manabase which three color Bant is much better at. Bant is better mana consistency while still giving us the ability to converage Skyrider and Wanderer, maybe not with five colors as easily, but four yes.

Here's my new idea for Dark Bant, using Four-Color Saheeli as a template. Here's the list so far:

This leaves room for 9x more cards, some combination of Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Verdurous Gearhulk, Tireless Tracker, Fatal Push and Tamiyo, Field Researcher. This is too many different cards something is going to be left out, but I'm not sure what yet.

It's also possible that we only splash black as a fourth color to better converge and just play a Swamp which Attune can get or Oath can find.

When Rishkar, Peema Renegade enters the battlefield, its second ability, which is a static ability, begins applying.

Additionally, Rishkar, Peema Renegade's first ability triggers. You put the triggered ability onto the stack and choose targets for it.

Now, at this point, you can actually tap Scrounging Bandar for mana because it already has a counter on it. However, you'll need to wait to tap Storm Crow until Rishkar, Peema Renegade's first ability resolves.

When Rishkar, Peema Renegade's first ability resolves, Animation Module's ability triggers once or twice, depending on how many creatures you targeted with the ability and put counters on. You can tap your Scrounging Bandar or Storm Crow for mana to pay for one of those abilities, but you can't tap Rishkar, Peema Renegade itself because it has summoning sickness.

But the creature is a mana dork when Rishkar, Peema Renegade ETB (simultaneous habilities/triggers may be?), may I use that mana to create a Servo token?

Thanks a lot CoreGon.

I've decided to cut black and Fatal Push. The four color Dark Bant manabase was ok, but I'm finding just straight Bant to be much more consistent and honestly better. Immolating Glare and Blessed Alliance will most likely become the cheap mana instant removal spells of choice in the future.

I still don't know if cutting black and Winding Constrictor is the right move. The Snake has real potential with Rhonas the Indomitable, but I'm afraid of the -1/-1 counters theme that's in Amonkhet. Turn 2 Snake, turn 3 Rishkar, Peema Renegade, turn 4 Rhonas seems nuts. We'll have to see if later on if it's safe to play Constrictor.

I've been very impressed with Tamiyo, Field Researcher with Rhonas the Indomitable. She doesn't really have a home in Standard because Bant isn't a deck maybe this deck can change that? Cast Out is just as advertised, it's great, auto 4 of in my opinion because of the cheap cycling. Another card I've recently added is Scattered Groves. I've increased the land count to 23x from the usual 20x to play it. I'm starting with using only 4x cycle lands, I feel this is a good starting point number because they do come into play tapped after all and can possibly disrupt my first four turns of casting spells. It's nice to be able to use a land to draw a card after I have six lands in play for Sylvan Advocate and don't really need anymore. I've also had some turn threes where I've cycled both Cast and Grove at the end of my opponent's turn to draw two cards which helped me draw into a better turn four play. Having these options is nice.

You all know my fondness toward Skyrider Elf and I think Rhonas makes Skyrider even better which I'm pretty excited about.

Note you'll only be able to use the Storm Crow/Scrounging Bandar for mana, as Rishkar, Peema Renegade will still be summoning sick and unable to tap for mana.

I don't know whether the following cases are different or completely equal, but the key is that the second creature is not a mana dork in itself:

Case 1: Turn 1: Animation Module Turn 2: Storm Crow Turn 3: Rishkar, Peema Renegade giving himself and Storm Crow a +1/+1 counter.

Case 2: Turn 1: Animation Module Turn 2: Scrounging Bandar Turn 3: Rishkar, Peema Renegade giving himself and Scrounging Bandar a +1/+1 counter.

Same question both cases: Can the creature be tapped in order to activate Animation Module and put a Servo token after casting Rishkar, Peema Renegade?

Thank you.
