Sandsteppe Citadel Discussion

PhyrexianPreator on Aggro Rhino

Seeing as how you are probably aiming to go with a budget deck I will suggest Sandsteppe Citadel and Figure of Destiny. Sandsteppe gives you mana fixing and the figure allows the behemoth to have both abilities while also being a win condition by itself.

Also, don'y know if you are still working on this but I think you should continue with it.

I don't really know how to build Ghave, but even without Treefolk, Murmuring Bosk is great, like a second Sandsteppe Citadel.
Maybe add Inspiring Call, Nissa, Voice of Zendikar or Ajani Steadfast ?...

You should add Murmuring Bosk. It gives you all your colors, it's a fetchable Forest and you already have some Treefolk. Sandsteppe Citadel is always tapped but still good too. Maybe add manlands like Forbidding Watchtower and Stirring Wildwood.

I'm not playing with the walls but it looks very fun. I also don't play many treefolk personally but you can definitely get value with tribal (Cavern of Souls, Timber Protector, etc.).

Great deck overall. Another nice card I'm using is Aligned Hedron Network wich rarely affects my board. Enlightened Tutor is amazing to get it or anything else useful. You can check my list here if you want : Doran - EDH

Grasslands, Bad River, Flood Plain, Bant Panorama, Esper Panorama and Krosan Verge are super budget fetches. I would re-include Murmuring Bosk, because of it's forest type it is essentially a fetch-able Sandsteppe Citadel. The KTK block fetches are at a low right now, with all three in Atraxa's colors at $10-15 (Flooded Strand, Polluted Delta, Windswept Heath. For more U/G lands Yavimaya Coast, Lumbering Falls, Opulent Palace, Hinterland Harbor, Botanical Sanctum and Temple of Mystery are great budget options. Breeding Pool itself though is under $10 right now so I'd jump on that.

Your mana base seems pretty ambitious. I'd try to cut down to atleast 3 colors but if you are determined here's what i'd run in a 5 color deck

You could try a fetch shock mana base but thats pretty expensive. (A fetch like Flooded Strand can get any color of mana via Hallowed Fountain, Steam Vents, Windswept Heath, Godless Shrine for example)

Ancient Ziggurat works for your creatures

The 10 tri lands: Seaside Citadel, Arcane Sanctum, Crumbling Necropolis, Savage Lands, Jungle Shrine, Sandsteppe Citadel, Mystic Monastery, Opulent Palace, Nomad OutpostFrontier Bivouac

If you have enough tappedlands Amulet of Vigor might be worth considering

Chromatic Lantern aslo is probably needed.

Welcome to mtg, dude! my first concern is the mana base, if you down have any pain lands (Llanowar Wastes, Caves of Koilos, Brushland), Sandsteppe Citadel should your only land that comes in tapped. good land count though, usually mtg decks have a 33% of lands, but I would consider more swamps and less plains, with forests staying high (especially with the Verdant Automaton's activated ability). I would take out Renegade Map, it does mana fix, but it doesn't ramp (consider Wayfarer's Bauble, Expedition Map for a good nonbasic land, or Sakura-Tribe Elder). And for combos: consider Barren Glory with Renounce, Spy Kit with Cornered Market/ Rememberance/ Pack Hunt. Also consider Tower Defense, Ranger's Guile, Heroic Intervention, Blossoming Defense, maybe Bonds of Mortality if you put in more removal, Young Wolf, Ghave, Guru of Spores. And if you like abzan colors, check out Fungal Growth. Plus I prefer the commander format over standard, there's lass turn 0 win assholes with Leyline of Anticipation, Lotus Petal, Mana Crypt, Show and Tell, Omniscience, Enter the Infinite. Hope this helps! If you or anyone else needs more help or have any questions, I'm always here.

Murmuring Bosk seems kind of an odd choice since you don't have a treefolk creature why not just run a Sandsteppe Citadel

Mulldrifter seems useful

Commune with the Gods also good dig
