Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor on Avacyn is here to save your wallet

So...a couple thoughts. First of all, I will +1 this deck just because you are running the Kaldra + Worldslayer combination.

This appears to be a budget deck correct? I'll try to provide suggestions accordingly:

Hour of Revelation and Tragic Arrogance are probably two of the best white board wipes (outside of Austere Command) that are available.

Swords to Plowshares is still budget and an amazing spot removal spell.

Swiftfoot Boots give you another Lightning Greaves effect.

O.K. Now onto the area where I think your deck is lacking. You are running voltron but have only 1 tutor and 3 draw spells. Card advantage is white's biggest weakness in EDH making it imperative to include a large card draw package. Otherwise you will be quickly outpaced by other color combinations. I would suggest adding any of Mask of Memory, Endbringer, Sea Gate Wreckage, Slate of Ancestry, Tower of Fortunes, Endless Atlas, Alms Collector, Sram, Senior Edificer, or Arch of Orazca. Open the Armory is also a budget friendly equipment tutor.

If budget isn't the issue then you should also consider: Austere Command, Cleansing Nova, Stoneforge Mystic, Puresteel Paladin, Enlightened Tutor, Path to Exile, Memory Jar, Land Tax, Teferi's Protection, and/or Tithe.

Good luck deck building!

Suns_Champion on Valduk Voltron

Hi! I love Valduk! Never got around to making a list but I have a tooooon of good ideas for him

Or mainly just one: Bludgeon Brawl

Fascinating card. Makes all of your mana rocks extra equipment. And SO much more.

What makes it so good? Artifact tokens. Treasure tokens. Clue tokens. Curse of Opulence, Magnifying Glass, Brass's Bounty, Goblin Kaboomist, and a bunch more. You can equip these for free to ken more creature tokens. OR use them for ramp/card draw, making the deck versatile.

Bludgeon Brawl + Mycosynth Lattice makes all of your lands free quips too. Crazy fun.

How to win with all your creatures? Burn at the Stake. Dragon Throne of Tarkir. Slate of Ancestry.

Look here for more ideas: Suns_Champion's Well of Ideas. Find the Valduk section in the deck.

Hope some of this helps!

yeah, but Flameshadow Conjuring your kikijiki, will really increase your game speed. and to be fair if you start cheating your cards in with Sneak Attack, flameshadow will see more play. you DO have 13 creatures with cmc 6+.

Alternatively, if you're also looking for a decent discard engine: Slate of Ancestry

KALE434 on Relentless Rats

What no Pack Rat, Ashnod's Altar, Slate of Ancestry or Vanquisher's Banner?!?! Awesome deck though Love me some Relentless Rats!!!

Kaleo42 on Competitive Marath (GRW, Naya combo)

1 month ago

Before I can speak to any specific card choices I have a lot of questions about the meta you play in. I am seeing cards like Past in Flames and Slate of Ancestry and I'm wondering how you have enough time to ever really get value out of them. Granted I do play in a particularly stormy meta so my Marath list has been tuned super low to the ground, even so though the average pacing I am seeing in this list seems like many cEDH decks can steal the win before you get going.

Here is mine, it is a lot more hatebear and Marath combo but I think if we compare notes there may be some benefit on both sides.

Hi kelllppp,

For additional token generation we would recommend Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Kazandu Tuskcaller, Imperious Perfect, Avenger of Zendikar, Ant Queen, Living Hive, Beacon of Creation and Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury.

Boosting your creatures could be fun with Bloodspore Thrinax, Juniper Order Ranger and Tolsimir Wolfblood (which incidentally also creates tokens).

Aside from these things, we would also recommend Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Krosan Grip and/or Aura Shards for some more control. Maybe some additional draw options like Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Slate of Ancestry and Beacon of Creation.

For any further ideas, feel free to check out our Rhys deck. Good luck and have fun.
