Siona, Captain of the Pyleas Discussion

CJH123 on Uril, the Dollar Store Yeti

I'd focus on enchantment ramp (à la Wild Growth, Wolfwillow Haven, Overgrowth and Sheltered Aerie) over the artifact ramp and things like Rampant Growth. This could be supplemented with things like Arbor Elf, Voyaging Satyr and Blossom Dryad.

To my mind, if things like Ancestral Mask, Soul's Majesty and Rishkar's Expertise are working out, it's because you're already winning. I'd rather run things like Gryff's Boon, Messenger's Speed and Madcap Skills - I'd also work on reducing the overall CMC of your enchantments.

I'd switch Winds of Rath out for Gravitic Punch.

I'd also think about adding something else you can win with (if Uril becomes uncastable or is otherwise removed). Fleecemane Lion could carry a handful of aura's. Alternatively, Siona, Captain of the Pyleas + Shielded by Faith with Emblem of the Warmind or Fires of Yavimaya.

If you're running Shielded by Faith, I'd run Siona, Captain of the Pyleas too (for the combo).

If you're running Bear Umbra, I'd probably run Hellkite Charger too (for the combo).

I'd cut Brave the Sands, and AEther Web as they don't offer relevant evasion for Messenger's Speed, and Madcap Skills. I'd cut Runes of the Deus and Eldrazi Conscription as they're too expensive for Setessan Training and Angelic Gift.

I'd also consider replacing Three Dreams and Winds of Rath with Gravitic Punch and Chandra's Ignition.

The +1 of Garruk Wildspeaker (alongside all the Enchantresses) makes me think you should run more things like Trace of Abundance (rather than things like Darksteel Ingot), but they don't play well with Realm Razer.

Things like Escape Velocity, Talons of Wildwood and Gryff's Boon help you rebuild after a boardwipe.

To my mind, Siona, Captain of the Pyleas should be accompanied by Shielded by Faith (and probably Emblem of the Warmind), and Bear Umbra by Hellkite Charger.

Boros Charm and Temur Battle Rage / Psychotic Fury should be considered for finishers.

Kessig Wolf Run is also worth running.

I'd rather Beast Within / Generous Gift than Acidic Slime.

I'd probably rather Snake Umbra than Boar Umbra.

I don't have full lists on the decks im building and none of them are fine tuned, more just rough estimates of what the decks will look like. So far I have been trying to figure out the commanders that are viable on a competitive level and so far have found these commanders to be on a competitive level

Some of these commanders don't seem competitive at all but trust me when I say this format is weird and some of these commanders win cons will surprise you. I have been working on cPDH decks for about 1-2 months now and am really trying to pioneer the format, make a bunch of decks, and try and get others into.

When it comes to discord you can always create an account its free, they have it on mobile, mac, windows, or you can just use it in your browser and dont have to download it. I created a server for us so I can update you on the latest things im working and and I can post deck links as I finish them

https://discord.gg/fxZfns

One huge resource I found helpful is this post containing differend PDH combos:

http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/pauper-edh-combo-compendium/

It does not cover every combo available but its a start. Right now im in the process of cutting my decks down to 99 and writing up a quick into to the card choices and combo lines, I am still working on my first one and am nearly done, its for Auriok Salvagers

Auriok Salvagers

I have SO much information and work I have done on this unexplored format and would love to share it with you, discord is a super fluid way to do that as I rarely check my tapped out for messages.

I'm revamping the deck with your suggestions, but I'm still debating if I should go for the White Green route. The 2 cards That I would put are Siona, Captain of the Pyleas and Setessan Champion I love the artwork for them but more importantly they both can be powerful additions. Do you think its worth it to go White Green or stick mono white. If I stick Mono white as I originally inteaded, this would be my first Mono deck That I will use. I am fairly new to MTG, I started around late 2019. The other 2 decks I run are a Red Blue Black Amass deck and a Red Black Madness deck. That's partly why I want To run a Mono colored deck in the first place but I'm open to change.

@ vaserto77 "Green and white has lots of auras, but nothing game winning"

Well it does have the Earthcraft+Squirrel Nest combo, with the nest being an aura that Siona, Captain of the Pyleas can dig for.
