Sheltered Thicket Discussion
4 days ago
Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. I haven't seen very many decks with this Commander.
Consider Fauna Shaman and Anger ? Fauna can be a repeatable creature tutor and is good to be able to discard Brawn or Anger and tutor for Mycoloth or Tendershoot, etc. I think creature ramp is better here than artifact ramp because of devour. Mana dorks are good targets to devour because before they can first be ramp. Creatures who first land ramp, getting you a land and then can be devoured is better ramp with devour.
Creature ramp to consider:
- Birds of Paradise
- Llanowar Elves
- Elvish Mystic
- Arbor Elf
- Fyndhorn Elves
- Solemn Simulacrum
- Farhaven Elf
One drop mana dorks are huge reason to want to play green since other colors don't have as much of this luxury of ramp. Consider more sources of no mana cost repeatable token creation?
Eldrazi tokens can be used as ramp or devour fodder. You could also include a budget Eldrazi such as Artisan of Kozilek to be able to tutor for with Beyond. Kozilek can reanimate a creature you devoured. Garruk and Xenagos can be repeatable source of tokens. Xenagos's +1 with tokens can make a lot of ramp and Garruk can be repeatable draw, his -3 can draw a lot of cards with Thromok.
If you like some of these suggestions I offer more advice including cuts. Good luck with your deck.

Hey, Jund Panorama and Naya Panorama are budget fetch lands. Game Trail and Sheltered Thicket are budget Gruul duals lands. Fierce Empath can tutor for Avenger or Baloths or any other 6 CMC or higher creature. Signal the Clans is an instant tutor to search for three different creatures and put one of them randomly into your hand.
Mina and Denn, Wildborn gives you another land drop per turn and it's a landfall enabler. Budoka Gardener / Dokai, Weaver of Life and Walking Atlas let you put a land from your hand onto the battlefield. Skyshroud Claim , Farhaven Elf and Wood Elves are upgrades for land ramp. Smokebraider can help to ramp into Omnath, Avenger or other Elementals.
Beast Within , Nature's Claim , Hull Breach and Decimate are upgrades for removal spells. Greater Good is a draw engine and sac outlet for Elementals. Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar is a upgrade for finisher creature and he's an Elemental. Bane of Bala Ged is an underrated budget big creature; it's excellent with haste. Rhythm of the Wild is more haste and protects your creatures from being countered.
Good luck with your deck.

If the above cycle is still expensive, you can use Irrigated Farmland , Fetid Pools , Canyon Slough , Sheltered Thicket , Scattered Groves . Also: the cheap cycle Flood Plain , Bad River , Rocky Tar Pit , Mountain Valley and Grasslands pairs well with the cycles mentioned before.

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.

Check out my Xenagos Dragon deck, Xenagos, God of Revels . It used to be completely dragon tribal but i've shifted a bit away from that and found that it works excellently. I've been playing and tuning it for the better part of 6 years now, and I think it's in an excellent state. It's not the most powerful because i'm trying to keep it fun for everyone else to play against, but I still think you might pull a few good ideas from there.
As for any suggestions off the top of my head, you might want to look into speeding things up a bit. It won't overpower the deck at all, but it'll allow you to play your own game a bit more and have more control. Cards like Dragonspeaker Shaman are nice, but rather than playing that why not instead play a ramp spell that'll accelerate every card you play and can't be removed as easily. Look into Nature's Lore , Skyshroud Claim , and Explosive Vegetation . The first two can grab lands like Stomping Ground and Sheltered Thicket , while the last allows you to grab multiple basics. Another great one is Tempt with Discovery .
Regal Behemoth will give you access to another double mana source
Chromatic Lantern will also give you both mana fixing and further ramp.
There are a ton of other things you might like if you check out my deck list.
Good luck Gaming!

Some cheap lands I suggest instead of Vivid Crag , Vivid Grove , Darigaaz's Caldera and some basic lands: Blighted Woodland and Myriad Landscape ramp you. Bojuka Bog hoses graveyard players. Golgari Rot Farm , Gruul Turf , Rakdos Carnarium and Jund Panorama give you more land-drops. Sheltered Thicket and Canyon Slough can be easily fetched or brought back from the graveyard after cycled. Cinder Glade and Smoldering Marsh are also fetchable. When Standard rotates, Dragonskull Summit , Rootbound Crag , Woodland Cemetery , Blood Crypt , Stomping Ground and Overgrown Tomb will be way cheaper.
