Scattered Groves Discussion

Some land choices you might consider: Path of Ancestry , Fortified Village , Scattered Groves , Sheltered Thicket , Sungrass Prairie , Terramorphic Expanse , Blighted Woodland (ramp on a land), Opal Palace . Clifftop Retreat is good if you already have it. Gruul Turf , Selesnya Sanctuary and Boros Garrison allow you to go further on land drops and ramp. Sometimes, you will have to pay 14 mana for your commander, so be ready for that.

Hey, for a first Commander deck well done.

I'm not sure what your budget is for this deck because I see expensive price cards (Avacyn, Iona, Baneslayer) then also many ultra low budget cards. My cards suggestions are low budget ($4 or less each, most are $1-$2) to improve the manabase because when playing three colors you want more dual lands. A 12-12-8 basic land ratio is too many basic lands for a three color deck. There's several budget lands and additional mana production to consider adding.

White is the most important color because the majority of Angels are white and have mana costs. Angels have high mana costs therefore more ramp (mana rocks, land ramp, mana docks) are quite helpful to cast them in a game.

Cards to consider adding:

Canopy Vista, Prairie Stream, Port Town, Fortified Village, Ash Barrens and Bant Panorama have interaction with basic lands. Vista, Stream, Scattered Groves, Irrigated Farmland can be searched for with Farseek since these lands are two different land types. Vista and Groves can be search for with Nature's Lore since they have Forest as one of the two land types. Being able to search for and ramp with dual lands is helpful with a three color manabase.

Signets and Talimans are good two drop mana rocks for ramp in Commander decks. Fellwar Stone and Chromatic Lantern are rainbow mana rocks. Very helpful for mana fixing since Lantern lets you tap any land you control for any one color of mana which is good with a three color manabase. Elvish Mystic and Avacyn's Pilgrim are additional one drop mana dorks.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • 6x Island
  • 2x Plains
  • 2x Forest
  • Blazing Archon
  • Clone
  • Dust Elemental
  • Gleaming Barrier
  • Servant of the Conduit
  • Conqueror's Pledge
  • Secrets of the Golden City
  • Beneath the Sands
  • Divine Verdict
  • Time Stop

If your deck's budget is higher than I think it is please let me know and I can give you better land suggestions. There's other budget card upgrades you can make here and if you're interested I offer more advice.

Good luck with your deck.

triproberts12 Hey Bud. Yeah, all the cards in the main board I own, and most in the Maybeboard. Just read the article and that was really interesting. Guess I should probably run Sakura-Tribe Elder over Explosive Vegetation !

Would you say that Territorial Allosaurus should be ran over Domri Rade then? As it can be hit off of Gishath, Sun's Avatar ? I just find that he comes down, makes something fight and then dies, and even if he survives he then has a 30% chance of drawing you a card.

I agree with you on Huatli, Warrior Poet , and I think that does probably mean that Charging Monstrosaur is better, but I'd still put in things like Sunforger above it. I still don't even think that Vanquisher's Banner is that good in this deck, and adding something like Crush Contraband a long with Sunforger would be a better include.

Scattered Groves and Sheltered Thicket should probably be in the lad base anyway. I don't know about going all the way up to 40 lands as that's how many I have in my Omnath, Locus of Rage deck! Average on EDHREC is now at 38, so I should go up one or maybe even two.

It has occurred to me that there is a sweet combo with one of the indestructible spells like Make a Stand and a combination of Raptor Hatchling or Forerunner of the Empire + Polyraptor . In combination with Impact Tremors or Purphoros, God of the Forge this would make a quick win. Would you say that this is worth going for and building in? Or am I convoluting the strategy!

Once again if there's anything I can do on your tappedout let me know and I would be happy to oblige.

I understand the reluctance to replace Knight. It's certainly not a dead draw, or anything. Just keep an eye on your 3 and 4-mana dinos as you upgrade the deck to make sure that the possibility of double-spelling outweights the extra mana presented by Dynamo. I think Territorial Allosaurus is worth it. You are light on targeted creature removal. For that reason, I like Domri Rade , although if you don't own a copy, I would put that money into Path of Ancestry and Regal Behemoth , first.

I don't like Huatli, Warrior Poet . The dinosaur thing is cute, but this isn't a go-wide tribe like Elves or Goblins where a 3/3 token will make a difference to the board. You want them in your deck for Gishath value, and that's the main reason. Think about Charging Monstrosaur , by comparison. You get 5 power with haste on the first turn it comes down. With Huatli, you get to attack with 3 power the second turn, and 6 power the third turn, assuming she survives, which is a rough task for Planeswalkers in multiplayer. If she does, it will take 6 turns of making and attacking with 3/3 dinosaurs every turn to surpass the damage output from Monstrosaur, and she's not a hit off Gishath. I'm not sure if that means you should run Monstrosaur or not, but Reality Smasher Jr. won me a lot of games of Draft.

As for how to alter your ramp package to make it better, seeing Rampant Growth reminded me of an excellent article at EDHREC. Check it out, since I think Dana Roach does a better job explaining land ramp than I can. I would also go up to 39 or 40 lands. You REALLY want to be hitting your land drops with an 8-mana commander that your deck is built around, and one that's 3-colors, to boot. If you're afraid of flooding out, Scattered Groves and Sheltered Thicket aren't a bad compromise.

Hey, nice upgrade and you kept your deck budget well done :)

There's a few good cards that are included in Feline Ferocity that I don't see here, consider adding them:

There's some other budget cards ($4 or less each) that can be upgrades to consider:

Vista and Scattered are good to search for one of them with Farseek since they are Plains. Vista and Village have good interaction with lots of basic lands. Call, Dawn and Armory are tutors, currently here there's no tutors. Dawn has good interaction with Herald's Horn being able to at instant speed set-up the top of your library with Cats. Having three turns where you can draw a Cat or creature of your choice is also nice. Titan is not a Cat, but he can be a repeatable way to reanimate 3 or less CMC permanents.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • 1x Plains
  • 1x Forest
  • Vivid Meadow
  • Blossoming Sands
  • Graypelt Refuge
  • Phantom Nishoba
  • Spirit of the Hearth or Felidar Sovereign
  • Hunter's Prowess
  • Rout
  • Dispatch

Good luck with your deck.

Some lands you might consider: Krosan Verge can grab Cinder Glade , Canopy Vista , Sheltered Thicket and Scattered Groves . Battlefield Forge , Sungrass Prairie , Exotic Orchard and Blighted Woodland are cheap ones to include. You may try Nature's Lore , Farseek , Skyshroud Claim , Kodama's Reach and Circuitous Route . The first three can grab nonbasic lands, while the last one can search for Gruul Guildgate , Selesnya Guildgate and Boros Guildgate . Mosswort Bridge is great with big creatures. Rogue's Passage can make Gishath go through. Boros Charm protects your board.
