Leveler, Eater of Days, Chronatog.

Maybe Awakened Amalgam with all the different lands you play.

Also consider some or all of the staffs (Staff of the Wild Magus, Staff of the Death Magus etc.) and if you want to go the lifegain-route, you can play Well of Lost Dreams, and the amazing Juju Bubble.

Aladdin's Lamp also gives you some serious card advantage.

Maybe also some clash-effects, cause your mana-curve and land-to-nanland ratio is on point!

Ok, since it's closer to modern, I'll suggest only cards that could fit that format

But, first of all, why don't you reduce your deck up to 60 cards?

Now, since your goal is to get big creatures on the battlefield, why don't you add things like Ghalta, Primal Hunger, Steel Leaf Champion, Rhonas the Indomitable, Thragtusk, Acidic Slime, Craterhoof Behemoth, Gigantosaurus, Primeval Titan, Worldspine Wurm, Thrun, the Last Troll?

I've also seen that you have some creatures that require 2/3 specifical mana, so why not some Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx instead of the Urza's Lands?

Another suggestion could be Utopia Sprawl instead of Market Festival

If you want to draw cards when a creature enters, instead of Zendikar Resurgent and Garruk's Packleader, add Beast Whisperer. It's cheaper

Cards I personally don't like from this deck:

Last thing: since you already have big creatures in your deck, what's the purpose of instant and sorceries that just make them bigger? I'd personally add usefull instants like Vines of Vastwood or Blossoming Defense

Thank you very Much!I ended up getting rid of Ajani's Mantra and Staff of the Wild Magus and replacing it with 2 Nyx-Fleece Ram. I also have 3 Ajani's Pridemate and 3 Blossoming Sands. Felidar Sovereign was originally used with Ajani, Mentor of Heroes, but I ended up getting rid of both of them and added Elspeth Tirel For the removal and also the really good life gain.I added a single of Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant, also a single Blessed Alliance and Lone Rider  Flip.

My new Sideboard (9)

2 Condemn2 Dawn Charm1 Eidolon of Rhetoric1 End Hostilities1 Nevermore1 Nissa, Worldwaker1 Unravel the Aether

I also followed xaerusblade and hopefully my mana curve is slightly better and maybe I could get more tips in that regard.

(I haven't changed the decklist in Tappedout so here is the stats)

Just a hint if you come looking for help in the future :)


The first thing I would like to add is that you are playing way too much land. In a 60 card deck with a steap mana curve, you probably only want 24-25 lands. Now your deck is currently 64. That's not too bad, but if you could shave it down to 60 that'll be doing yourslef a sall favor. (Consistancy is just lovely.)


Secondly, I can spot a few cards that I either find too bad to play, imo, or doesn't really fit your strategy too well.

Ajani's Mantra and Staff of the Wild Magus fit's your strat reasonably well, but are both really bad overall cards, and they don't help you close out games.

Ajani's Chosen The card is perfectly reasoable as is right now, if not a little too clonky, but if you decide to take my advice on the Mantra's it's probably not playable afterwards.

Felidar Sovereign Awesome as it is, seems like a very unlikely wincondition for you. If you ever get to a point where it would win you the game, you are probably already winnning.

You have a couple more cards, that I'm a bit unhappy with, but are reasonable for the moment being.


Thirdly if you want to play a slower deck, you have to be able to interact.

If you can't answer the things your opponent does from time to time, you are going to lose to a lot of combo decks.


Fourthly: Here are some cards I hink you should look into, priced around the 1$ mark, or less. (If you want that lifegain theme to stick)

Qasali Pridemage Realy powerful card, that happens to be a cat, and can sometimes "interact" with opposing gameplans.

More Ajani's Pridemate - It's a great finisher, if you have some lifegain.

Nyx-Fleece Ram, not the best card in the world, but a good replacement for Ajani's Mantra.

Condemn - Cheap creature removal.

Lone Rider  Flip - Only play this if you really into life gain.

Soul's Attendant / Soul Warden are wuite good with tokens, and Ajani's Pridemate

More Blossoming Sands, fixing mana gaining life.

Blessed Alliance - Everthing goo in this world.

Eidolon of Rhetoric - put this in your sideboard, you wont regret it.


You are more than welcome to ask me for advice if you need an experienced player for something :) and good luck.

I would start by picking a win condition (or at least theme if you're more into that style of play) to get fully behind. It sounds like for you that may be "making clones".

The next thing I would consider would be speed. Right now you deck seems a bit on the slow side. As you are in green, you have a very affordable to go fast with more Mana Dorks:

In most EDH lists, it is prudent to run the mana rocks in your colors:

Life gain in EDH is kinda bad IMO. Remember, everyone in starting with 40 life so a lot of players look for alternatives ways to win the game. This includes combos, storm, infect, or commander damage. All of these ignore your life total so investing in cards like Tablet of the Guilds, Staff of the Mind Magus and Staff of the Wild Magus are a moot point. I would cut them both along with Aetherflux Reservoir.

On that note of infect, I would personally see about moving the deck to have an infect angle as an alternative way to win. The cards needed are usually budget such as Glistener Elf and Triumph of the Hordes. Infect is a great way to snag an unexpected win out of nowhere and has decent support in your U/G colors.

If you end up wanting to dive hard into the higher tiers of EDH let me know. I have some budget lists to get people into the higher powered meta's.
