Scoured Barrens Discussion
eastly on Ally Drain
3 weeks ago
I'm going to make hella recommendations for cards here. I'm not really sure what your budget is so I'll include cards that fall into the budget and non budget categories (Non budget mostly being a reasonable price, not the most optimal cards that tend to cost a ton of money.)
Mana Base Show
Next is your mana base, you have the Ally Encampments which is good, but I would look into picking up a playset of dual lands to round out the manabase a little more. My go to budget option is: Scoured Barrens
Deck Focus and How Many Copies to Play Show
TLDR: Every deck has themes that it uses to acheive it's goals, a deck can have sub-themes as well. For example, this is a Drain Deck with life gain and ally sub-themes. Almost every card should in some way compliment AT LEAST one of these strategies, Ideally every single card compliments the main theme, and builds upon one of the sub-themes. However, exceptions can be made. The question you have to ask yourself is: Does this card compliment my main theme? If not, is this card strong enough on it's own to warrent weakening my main theme
I'll give you the following advice, but I'll be vague so you can apply the theory yourself. I think that you have too many copies of Ondu Cleric but I don't think you should drop all of them. You should have at most 4 cards that cost 5 Mana. Cards that only serve to gain life are worth running only if they get incredibly powerful.
Cards you should know exist Show
PS: You have 61 cards rn

Love the deck! Although I get the synergy with the Sac stuff, why use Altar's Reap over Night's Whisper? I think the Cyclers could get cut, they slow you down quite a bit with no real benefit, unlike Scoured Barrens. What are the justifications for the sideboard choices? I'm considering building this in paper, fyi.

All things I am going to suggest are under $2 cards. If your looking for something in a higher budget let me know.
Cards to get rid of:
Ajani's Pridemate and Child of Night They seem like they would work but they do not do enough
Arena Rector No really good planeswalker to find.
Bloodcrazed Hoplite, Knight of Malice, Oketra's Avenger, Typhoid Rats, Skittering Heartstopper, and Fate Unraveler Don't see how they fit in at all
Danitha Capashen, Paragon No Equipement but a decent creature.
Harvestguard Alseids Not running enough enchantments
Kazarov, Sengir Pureblood Not in your commander colors (has red)
Replace all of these creatures with creatures that do 1 of 4 things:
Produce a creature token
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet from your side board
Gain you life
Pontiff of Blight, Syndic of Tithes, Tithe Drinker, Treasury Thrull, Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Sunscorch Regent, Suture Priest are all good examples. In multiplayer EDH extort good.
Burnished Hart. Crypt Ghast He is like $3.50 but he is really good in this deck Draw a card
Bloodgift Demon and Mentor of the Meek are good examples.
You should have all your instants and sorceries do some kind of board wipe or removal. The ones that are a one shot gain life just aren't good.
Your enchantments are good.

If your maybeboard consists purely of cards you own/can obtain, these are my suggestions:
- Submerged Boneyard --> Sunken Hollow
- Meandering River --> Prairie Stream
- Dismal Backwater --> Drowned Catacomb
- Forsaken Sanctuary --> Hallowed Fountain
- Tranquil Cove --> Temple of the False God
- Jwar Isle Refuge --> Exotic Orchard
- Scoured Barrens --> Esper Panorama
- Arbiter of the Ideal --> Eldrazi Displacer
- AEthermage's Touch --> Coalition Relic
- Dead Reckoning --> Conjurer's Closet
- Lavinia of the Tenth --> Kaya, Ghost Assassin
- Mastery of the Unseen --> Eerie Interlude
- Haunted Crossroads --> Gonti, Lord of Luxury

Deck update :
2 months ago
Hey, you asked for my help. This is a well built budget Commander deck. Only $137 for a complete playable Commander deck is nice, good job.
Chromatic Lantern is down more than 60% in price (less than $5 now) since it's been revealed to be reprinted in Guilds of Ravnica. Lantern is now a budget Commander card, as it should be :) The prices haven't updated yet for this site, but if you add (GRN) to the end of Lantern in the text editor it will show up as the GRN version with the updated low price.
Your decklist is already really well done/streamlined, it's going to be difficult to make cuts without adding some additional price... Here's a list of cards to consider adding/cutting:
Exsanguinate: does X damage to each player and you gain just as much life. This single spell can kill everyone at the table. It could replace Death Grasp because Grasp only does X damage to one player.
Exotic Orchard: good land for multiplayer Commander.
Tainted Field: can ETB untapped and if you control a Swamp it can be tapped to make black or white mana. If you don't have a Swamp you can still tap it to make colorless mana. It could replace either Orzhov Guildgate or Scoured Barrens?
If these lands upgrades are too much then I think you're better off playing more basic lands then the three Guildgates, Barrens, River and Boneyard. More basic lands at least work better with the Bounce lands (Azorius Chancery, etc.).
Good luck with your deck.

Too many tappy lands not enough basics i.e. Boros Guildgate, Wind-Scarred Crag, Scoured Barrens. One Blood Moon will wreck your day because of your lack of basics. Unless you put a Blood Moon in to wreck everyone else's day and you have a lot of mountains. Keep the Fetches, the shocks, and the bounce lands and any lands that say swamp/mountain, swamp/plains, that way you can fetch them instead of basics.
