Seeker of Skybreak Discussion

l13199l: Can't wait to hear from your experiences while playing it :D. As for Illusionist's Bracers , I think this is a bit too narrow as you only have 5 targets with only three of them being viable targets for infinite, one of which needs a mana producer to go infinite.
For your targeted hate situation, you could consider Eladamri, Lord of Leaves , since you're leaning towards Elves more, you can always bounce it when you need to equip. I think your list is pretty airtight I gotta be honest and I am super happy to see Touch of Vitae getting use, breaks my heart it didn't make it into my main list.

Let's try to throw in Seeker of Skybreak to add 2 more infinites to this deck!

Hey MagicalHacker, saw your vid on EDHrec. Seems like you're "moving on up" perhaps even to the East side... Puns aside, I require your assistance or suggestion and appreciate all the help you've given me in the past. I'm stuck between commanders and plan on liquidating one of my decks that just isn't playing like I want to (that being Karametra). So the commanders that I'm contemplating is:
Marwyn, the Nuturer: elf tribal more or less. Marwyn can go infinite with just a few elves and things like Umbral Mantle or capable of generating large amounts of mana with cards like Seeker of Skybreak or Quirion Ranger ECT. Finishers would be green staples Craterhoof Behemoth or Worldspine Wurm . Maybe Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre for laughs. Generate a lot of mana and cast a huge Hurricane or Squall Line offset by beat downs or Wellwisher . Heck Killer Bees would be a funny way to kill someone... Tighter budget due to less trade then the next 2 commanders.
Feather, the Redeemed : cantrips for CA. But this would feel more like Colton. But she also seems like the flavor of the month atm but reminds me of my old Zada deck so I have most the caltrops already before the price hikes due to the hype.
Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle : not your typical commander. Uniquely a land but can still be modified by how creatures etb as well as landfall. Can generate infinite mana with Freed from the Real and Pemmin's Aura for shenanigans. Not doing sea creature tribal so finding good lists is a little harder to find. Doesn't interact with counters like typical Simic commanders but becomes a huge 12/12 beater when activated. Lots of cantrips that allow for being unblockable.
Any advice or reccomendations would be greatly appreciated!

McToters a few of the cards you mentioned I'd already looked at and considered in the past but there are a few in there that I'll definitely have to consider so thanks for suggesting.
Another card that I don't think I will include is Unwinding Clock . as you said I don't have many artifacts I think most of the time it will just be a dead card in my hand. And even when I can use it, I don't think untapping 1 or 2 things for 4 mana is really worth it when I can untap everything with Seedborn Muse , or Quest for Renewal . I've also decided not to use Magewright's Stone , or Magewright's Stone because they're a little too slow.
However Thousand-Year Elixir is a gem of a card and I can't believe I never thought to put it in this deck. The untapping ability is decent, but the added on pseudo- Concordant Crossroads effects make it very good. The only problem is it's gotten a bit more pricey as of recent so I'll have to weigh it's costs to it's contributions.
The combos you mentioned are a little problematic for my purposes. Because my combos are able to be entirely fetched up by Yisan I don't see myself using these too much to be worth putting in the deck. That being said Seeker of Skybreak is absolutely another auto-include. Not only is it a combo piece fetchable by Yisan but enables combos to happen much faster. That's not even mentioning the fact that it's only 30¢! Of all the cards you recommended this is the one that my deck needs the most.
Anyways thanks for the suggestions I'm always looking for ways to make my deck better and having other people recommend cards is probably the best way.

Hey again! I was thinking... your commander has an ability that needs some of the same tools as my Kamahl, Pit Fighter deckdo you think Paradox Engine helps you out at all? I know you’re not casting creatures off of Yisan but I figure it’s powerful enough to run here. You probably still cast a decent amount of stuff. Also, maybe Thousand-Year Elixir as another untap tool (plus some haste). You’re not really running a ton of artifacts but Unwinding Clock may help add more value to your artifact utility. Sword of the Paruns is technically a worse Umbral Mantle due to initial CMC but it’s another option for untapping. Same goes for Magewright's Stone .
Not sure how much combo stuff you’re looking for but...
Seeker of skybreak + Rings of Brighthearth + Creature that taps for 3 mana = infinite mana
Anyway, you probably knew about all of those already but just thought I’d throw out a few more suggestions. I really like Yisan and think it’s a sweet deck.

Hey, for a first deck really well done. You have good card sense for a beginner in Commander :)
You have Craterhoof, Sword of Fnf and Exploration, but other than these three cards I don't see a lot of other expensive price cards therefore my card suggestions will be low budget ($5 or less each).
Cards consider adding:
- Duskwatch Recruiter Flip: Recruiter can be a mana sink, repeatable way to put a creature into your hand to then cast with Yeva.
- Priest of Titania : one of the best mana dorks in Commander for mono green ramp when you're playing other Elves, Yeva is an Elf.
- Vizier of the Menagerie : Vizier lets you play creatures from the top of your library, you can do this at instant speed with Yeva.
- Nature's Claim : only one mana is an upgrade for Naturalize.
- Joraga Treespeaker : another one drop mana dork who can be a mana sink to make even more mana with other Elves.
- Nature's Lore : search for a Forest and put it onto the battlefield untapped, is an upgrade for Rampant Growth or Lay of the Land.
- Skyshroud Claim : searches for two Forests and puts them onto the battlefield untapped, is an upgrade for Ranger's Path or Cultivate.
- Scavenging Ooze : repeatable graveyard hate is nice to have access to in Commander.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Gatekeeper Vine
- Viridian Emissary
- Mana Bloom
- Lay of the Land
- Rampant Growth
- Ranger's Path
- Desert Twister
- Wildwood Rebirth
If playing Yisan, the Wanderer Bard then consider creatures who can untap him? Letting you use his ability more than once a turn :) This is helpful to chain creatures and build up lore counters faster.
These cards are also good with mana dorks especially Karametra's Acolyte, Priest of Titania as well as Fauna Shaman, etc. Quirion's ability to bounce a Forest you control to then untap a creature you control can be used once on each of your opponent's turns as well as your turn. This lets you at instant speed on an opponent's turn untap Yisan or a mana dork to use their abilities again.
Good luck with your deck.

Hey, to make your deck more competitive consider building around Darksteel Reactor , Magistrate's Scepter and Sage of Hours ? A strategy around Biovisionary is not worth it because it forces you to play a bunch of bad high mana cost cards to enable it.
What you want with Reactor/Scepter are cards that can untap Vorel to be able to use his ability more than one time a turn as well as other cards that interact with charge counters. You also want tutors for artifacts. With Sage you need to get a counter on him either with graft (Frogling), moving a counter from one permanent to another (Conduit) or target him (Bioshift).
Cards to consider adding:
- Coretapper : Reactor, Scepter, Prism, Everflowing, Cornucopia, Cannon, etc. use charge counters.
- Kiora's Follower
- Seeker of Skybreak
- Magewright's Stone
- Thousand-Year Elixir : gives Vorel haste and untap.
- Instill Energy : gives Vorel haste and untap.
- Kiora, Master of the Depths
- Tezzeret the Seeker : can be a repeatable tutor and put onto the battlefield either Reactor or Scepter, etc.
- Whir of Invention
- Buried Ruin
- Inventors' Fair
Another thing to consider is decreasing the avg. CMC of your deck. You can do this by cutting a lot of high mana cost cards especially creatures and enchantments for lower mana cost cards:
- Serum Visions
- Mystic Remora
- Rhystic Study
- Sol Ring
- Astral Cornucopia
- Everflowing Chalice
- Simic Signet
- Fauna Shaman
- Eternal Witness
- Scavenging Ooze
- Lux Cannon
- Swan Song
- Arcane Denial
- Trygon Predator
- Trinket Mage
- Ravenous Slime
- Chain of Vapor
- Beast Within
- Reality Shift
- Nature's Claim
Many of these cards are budget and cards like Study are expensive price, but entirely worth it if you're trying to be more competitive. Toothy, Imaginary Friend is a good creature with counter strategies and all these draw spells especially repeatable ones such as Remora and Study can really pump it. Fauna can be a repeatable creature tutor which is very helpful when your budget can't afford all the expensive price tutors. When playing Toothy you want Reliquary Tower because Toothy can draw a lot of cards and you want to keep all those cards in your hand.
I offer more advice :) Good luck with your deck.

The deck continues to test well. Last game I didn't draw any of my bees, so I was instead attacking with a 34/17 Fyndhorn Elves with trample. I had two Timberwatch Elf , which could both pump twice thanks to a Seeker of Skybreak and Wirewood Lodge . I also had a Berserk . Could have technically been a 68/17, since I also had the second Berserk in my hand, but it wasn't needed.
