Maybe take out Mardu Charm for a better charm, and consider putting in Rishkar's Expertise . Check out my deck for ideas Ramos-Daddy.

TheMillKid on Dragon Assault

First and foremost, here are some suggestions for improving your manabase: Rootbound Crag , Blighted Woodland , Kazandu Refuge , Haven of the Spirit Dragon , Gruul Guildgate , Rugged Highlands , Command Tower , Temple of Abandon , Sheltered Thicket , Cinder Glade , Game Trail , and Kessig Wolf Run . I know that's a lot of cards just dedicated to mana, but I think the Haven and Kessig will pull both surely pull their weight.

Rishkar's Expertise generates great card advantage while you control a big dragon. Harmonize is another strong draw spell in green. Cultivate and Kodama's Reach are cards just like Nissa's Pilgrimage , and they help you accelerate your game.

I'm not sure how you feel about infinite combos, but Aggravated Assault and Savage Ventmaw is an option. Grand Warlord Radha has the potential to achieve the same.

I'd definitely recommend cutting Demolish (although that gremlin is quite cute). You could replace it with cards such as Beast Within , Aftershock , Hull Breach , and/or Decimate .

Finally, Dragonstorm is a fun card that allows you to find whatever dragon you might want/need. It's nowhere near as good as Tooth and Nail , but it is a fun and more budget-friendly option for the time being.

Happy Brewing!

I recommend Zendikar Resurgent and Drumhunter for card draw and mana ramp. Other good card-drawing options are Elemental Bond , Soul of the Harvest , Kavu Lair , Shamanic Revelation , and Rishkar's Expertise . I think Dual Nature could be a better card than Minion Reflector , but it does affect other players, too. Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma in a deck like this is a poor man's Urza's Incubator .

Tribal Wurm looks like fun!

greyninja on Favorite Voltron Commander and why?

1 week ago

I have two pseudo-voltron builds. They both run other game changing creatures (in case my commander is Counterspell 'd or Nevermore 'd too many times) but mostly plan on using the general as the wincon

Omnath, Locus of Mana is hilariously fun. If you can turn one mana dork, turn two Omnath, you can swing for 5 turn three, another 10 turn four, then gg turn five. Not many voltron decks can close out games that fast.

I use cards like Rogue's Passage and Bellowing Tanglewurm to push damage through, then cards like Hunter's Insight , Rishkar's Expertise , Soul's Majesty , Regal Force , etc can help carry you into a longer game

Aurelia, the Warleader is one of my wife's decks. Once she hits the board, shit is going down. Wrecking Ogre targeting her is a insta kill, Grafted Exoskeleton as well. Helm of the Host with her or Godo, Bandit Warlord goes infinite

I use cards like Sword of Fire and Ice , Mask of Memory , Chandra, Torch of Defiance and various tutors so gain some card advantage

Voltron can be tough if they have answers to your threats, but that's also part of the challenge and part of the fun!

More card draw, for sure. Beast Whisperer should go in, Elemental Bond , Zendikar Resurgent , Drumhunter , Soul of the Harvest are all good choices. Rishkar's Expertise basically says "draw at least 5 cards and play a dragon for free."

babushkasara on Kruphix Tron

I think one of the biggest improvements this deck could see would be in the mana base. Breeding Pool (cheap thanks to RNA), Simic Growth Chamber (works great with Tatyova), and Flooded Grove would be great additions. Some more of the cycle lands could also be useful, like Tranquil Thicket and Lonely Sandbar . I recommend removing Transguild Promenade because in a two color deck, it's just not great. Myriad Landscape is a land that can also serve as ramp. Simic Signet also provides ramp.

Explosive Vegetation can most likely be replaced by Skyshroud Claim . While it can only get forests, it can get a Breeding Pool and the lands come in untapped.

You definitely need both more removal and more card draw. Rhystic Study has already been suggested, but Harmonize or Rishkar's Expertise would also be great options. In terms of removal, Beast Within, Rapid Hybridization , Naturalize , Baral's Expertise , and Imprisoned in the Moon are budget options with a lot of utility.

Wilderness Reclamation is a new card that acts as a second Seedborn Muse. Also, this might be a deck that can make Mass Manipulation work, since you can generate and store so much mana. Hydroid Krasis is super expensive right now, but if you can manage to get your hands on a copy, it'd be fantastic too.

Hey, if you can only afford this deck or the Rat one than my advice is choose this deck. I see Xenagos, God of Revels ; he's a much better Gruul Commander than Nikya. He does a hell of a lot more smashing if that's what you want. If you're going to buy and assemble only one deck then make it count and use a good Commander. I don't see a reason to use a worse Commander in Nikya if you already have or are planning to get a much better card and Commander in Xenagos :)

There's several cards here already that can work well in a deck with Xenagos: Ibex, Vorinclex, Fauna, Forgotten Ways, Empath, Tribe-Elder, Goreclaw, Rhythm, Bane, Nylea, Ruric, Soul, Wood Elves, Vizier, Behemoth, Muse, Hellkite, Forerunners, Farhaven, Whisperer, Genesis, Zhur-Taa.

Consider adding a few budget cards that have excellent interaction with him:

You already have several good support cards for a deck with Xenagos. Ramp is good with him; other budget support cards to consider:

If you like the idea of Xenagos instead of Nikya then I can further help you to make changes and cuts.

Good luck with your deck.
