Hey, since your deck is low budget consider adding more cards to take advantage of your best card? Your best card is Tymna :)

You have the right idea with wanting to add Kunoros and Kambal. Kunoros because of menace evasion, lifelink and it's a hatebear. Kambal because he can be a repeatable source of life gain. With Tymna you want more creatures who have evasion so they can more easily do combat damage.

White has many good budget flying creatures. Hatebears who fly and can also disrupt your opponents are good in multiplayer Commander: Aven Mindcensor, Kinjalli's Sunwing, Hushbringer, Tomik, Distinguished Advokist, Archon of Absolution. Flying creatures who can create flying tokens: Emeria Angel, Archon of Sun's Grace can be repeatable sources of flying creatures. You also want more repeatable sources of life gain to safely keep triggering Tymna: Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Wingmate Roc, Answered Prayers.

Cards that create flying tokens are nice to go wide which helps to attack more than one opponent. Spirit Bonds and Sacred Mesa can be repeatable source of flying tokens. Lingering Souls, Spectral Procession, Battle Screech, Midnight Haunting create flying tokens. Entreat the Angels can create a lot of 4/4 Angels. With more creatures with flying then you can play Sephara, Sky's Blade who has a powerful effect for flying creatures, has lifelink and other flying creatures reduce her casting cost.

Other budget cards ($1-$2 or less each) to consider adding:

I offer more advice including what cards to cut. Would you like more advice?

Good luck with your deck.

Outlaws' Merriment makes a token at each of your upkeeps and I think that the variety of tokens they make can be pretty beneficial.

Sacred Mesa is similar to Luminarch ascension with how you can drain a lot of mana into it for tokens, but it is a bit more fragile with how it can blow itself up if you don’t have any of the tokens to sac.

For Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder:

Goma Fada Ox

Creature - Ox

Whenever Goma Fada attacks, target creature you control gains protection from colorless or from the color of your choice until end of turn.

If Goma Fada Ox would deal damage, it instead creates a copy of itself.


While this doesn't make use of his lifelink, it makes him a much better commander, is flavorful to him, and also does synergize with the double strike part.

For Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa:

A riff on Sacred Mesa

Zhalfir, Home of the Bellicose

Legandary Land

Zhalfir enters the battlefield tapped.

At the beginning of your upkeep, sacrifice Home of the Bellicose unless you control at least two Pegasus and/or Horse creatures.

: Add

Whenever a creature you control with flanking attacks, create X 2/2 white Pegasus creature tokens with flying, where X is that creature's toughness.

I'd like a Red card for Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, or a card that synergizes with flanking, doesn't mention flanking itself, and is decidedly non-black. (Flanking give the -X/-X ability to nonblack colors flavorfully)

Serra the Benevolent is pretty good, but I don't think it necessarily works with your deck as it is a bit of a win more card here. That being said, I think Ajani, Strength of the Pride would probably do more work here, though it doesn't fit the angel theme, your Divine Visitation can turn his tokens into angels. On that note Sacred Mesa works really well with Divine Visitation =).

@kamelyan thanks for the upvote and comment! I returned the favor by upvoting more of your decks!

The Locust God is one that was suggested to me by a friend as well. Are you thinking that because of the flying theme or because of the wheels or ? Just curious on people's thought process. I'm running it in my Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain deck and it's great there

I hope to not have to rely on Isochron Scepter , but it's there with a bunch of tutors to find it and Dramatic Reversal just in case I need infinite spirits haha ;)

Kyren Negotiations is a brand new card to me as well. My friend rocked me with it the other day in his Krenko, Mob Boss deck, and it seemed very fitting to add here

Sacred Mesa is pretty cool actually. Would go well with Purphoros, God of the Forge and Impact Tremors

Bag of Holding looks like it could go really well, or really bad if someone destroys it before you can get your cards back haha but I like where your head is at!

Thanks again!

Very nice.

But maybe you would want to add The Locust God just in case your win-con, Isochron Scepter , gets exiled.

I have not seen Kyren Negotiations before. Since you have Mana Echoes and Phyrexian Altar , I would include Sacred Mesa ; but only because it is a pet card of mine. You should not add it -it is pretty bad. The Locust God , though, yes, definitely.

What to take out for The Locust God ? I do not know; maybe Pongify .

If you get a chance, could you check out my Kykar deck? They released the Bird-Wizard with Bag of Holding , so I just had to go a Wheelin'!

Sia, Of the Lost World

Legendary Planeswalker: Sia

+1: Add one mana of any color to your mana pool for each creature you control

-3: Create three 2/2 Pegasus creature tokens with flying and hexproof

-8: You get an emblem with "Creatures without flying can't attack"


Kind of light on the Horse angle, but it made me think of Pegasus and Sacred Mesa type stuff. Expensive ultimate that gives you a permanent Moat for your island of pretty flying horses.

How about a Simic colored Legend that wants to turn your opponents lands into islands in a tempo controling way (Flood Counters maybe?). i.e. Spreading Seas or Stormtide Leviathan

I actually just put in Luminarch Ascension. I'm slowly tentatively getting in some ok playtesting finally on playedh. A number of games I've had trouble closing it out especially when a piece of Squirrel Craft got exiled by something. I've removed GAAIV for it.

I'll test it a bit and see how it goes but I may consider Sacred Mesa or Hoofprints of the Stag . After getting in some more games I'll make another update for it.
