Masterful on Feather | Mono Spellslinger Voltron | $20 Budget

1 week ago

Wiki-95 Sunforger is definitely good Feather decks, but this deck can actually support not running it. We have a lot of redundancy, so tutors aren't as important. In addition, it costs a lot of mana to equip and then unequip to tutor. We have little flexibility in terms of mana, and our best individual spells, Chandra's Ignition and Aurelia's Fury can't be tutored by it. Regardless of all of this, it's very powerful and probably should be included due to its repeatable value; however, including it would break the 'Mono Spellslinger' aspect of the deck. I definitely recommend it if you can afford one and don't care about the rule, but it's price is also spiking as we speak due to Feather's spoiler. The cheapest one on TCGplayer is currently $6 which means putting it in this budget deck is no longer possible. I will include it in my upgrade recommendations though.

Fineontheoutside Thanks for specifying this about Magnetic Theft . I'll include that in Theft's notable card description. Given this, Sword of Fire and Ice isn't the best example to include, so I'll think of another one.

DrkNinja on Swing for the Win!

Where's my boy Razaketh, the Foulblooded !? Also Balefire Dragon , Archfiend of Despair , Sower of Discord , Archfiend of Depravity , Demonlord Belzenlok , and Iroas, God of Victory ?

You also need some EDH staples such as Return to Dust , Anguished Unmaking , Vampiric Tutor , Demonic Tutor , Teferi's Protection , Sensei's Divining Top , and Boros Charm type stuff!

A good Sword of Feast and Famine , Sword of Fire and Ice , Whispersilk Cloak , and Darksteel Plate to keep Kaalia alive and unblockable are highly suggested!

Also a good Lillianas Contract is a pretty decent way to win, a bit janky but I like it.

I think a some graveyard recursion would be great too like Reanimate , or depending on how the deck develops Primevals' Glorious Rebirth !

Lastly just remember that EDHREC and Scryfall are your best friends when building edh decks! Also don't be afraid to look at other Kaalia decks for cool cards/combos ya know?

Hope this all helps! <3

DrkNinja on Good Boi Mowu

2 weeks ago

Actaull this is the last thing here's some card to cut!

  • Biogenic upgrade cut for Confluence, lifecrafter's gift
  • Nissa's judgement: Too expensive
  • primeval bounty: Win more card, too expensive
  • Quest for the Gemblades: Not enough value
  • Ridgescale Tusker: you only have a few creatures and you only care about counters on Mowu
  • Scrounging bandar: Forgotten ancient is better.
  • Bow of Nylea: I just think there are better options...
  • Nylea's Colossus: Too expensive without ramp, and not enough value without more enchantments
  • Sword of body and mind: Use Sword of Fire and Ice instead that way you have protection to 4 colors instead of 3
  • Sword of the chosen: Not enough value
  • Soul's Majesty: Rishkar's is better
  • Sixth Sense: Specifies COMBAT damage not as good. Snake Umbra does too but it also has totem armor
  • The Immortal Sun: Unless your meta has a high consistency of Walkers, not worth the high cmc
  • Seer's lantern: not enough value
  • Shield Of Kaldra

Also I think you really should add some more Explosive Vegetation and Cultivate s and such; people are gonna kill your dog a lot, if you want to bring him back you'll need more lands.

And why use bad mana rocks? Mana Crypt , Mana Vault , Basalt Monolith , Chrome Mox , Mox Opal (especially opal), are just better.

greyninja on More card draw for Hallar

2 weeks ago

You have Rishkar's Expertise , which is awesome; but there's a few more one-off spells. Hunter's Insight , Soul's Majesty , the classic Harmonize (as mentioned), Shamanic Revelation , Regal Force , it sucks to sac but Momentous Fall would go with your Life's Legacy , etc

Mask of Memory is cheap, Sword of Fire and Ice is not

hejtmane and abby315 mentioned some good ones too! There's ammo to work with!

I hope you'll check out my gruul deck! Have fun!

hkhssweiss on Akiri and Tymna's Abusive Relationship (TBC)

1 month ago

Thank you for your very detailed thoughts and perspective Suns_Champion!

Yes I was a bit inspired by precociousapprentice's Queen Marchesa: Politics, Aikido, and Control, it was one of the main reasons why I decided to actually go for this type of deck build and colors in particular.

I thought about Enlightened Tutor and I know I shouuuuuuld add it in but my reasoning was because I was not trying to be too degenerate with this deck build because I am bringing it against newbies and casuals. However I did add in Vampiric Tutor and Demonic Tutor so that is moot point, in Enlightened Tutor it goes!

On your point with Inventors' Fair ...I have totally forgotten about that card, yeah it needs to go in once I obtain one again. For the equipment tutor cards and Leonin Shikari I am trying to abstain away from equipments aside from Sunforger however that is to be determined if I decide to add in Sword of Fire and Ice and Sword of Feast and Famine . It is highly unlikely I will as I have my Nahiri voltron deck which will make it redundant if I do play with equipments.

As for your Sunforger target cards, you sir are who I need to come to when looking for Sunforger cards. I am guaranteed adding in about all the cards you suggested in the package and the suggested cuts also do make sense. It bears a lot of consideration on what I am testing out.

I do have another question if you don't mind. Are there any creatures that you would add in to this type of approach in the deck? Maybe a Hushwing Gryff or other hatebears?

I like what I see but... I have some opinions

Your creature selection is weak, there are better cards at your desposal than what you are using.

And since most of my suggestions, and most of your creatures are either soldiers or humans...

You also have a tokens subtheme, all of which are soldiers or humans:

Also I feel like you are missing some really good creature/boros cards

If you are going to play Equipment tutors, you should be playing these;

Maybe not all of them but one or two for sure.

Lastly I think you may have just two too many mana rocks, you aren't playing 3 colors.

I would start with the EDHREC pages for enchantress and for mono-white. The big concessions you have to make with mono-white in commander are lack of card draw and ramp. For that reason, the first cards I would put in the deck are Smothering Tithe , Knight of the White Orchid , Boreas Charger , Myriad Landscape , Oreskos Explorer , Solemn Simulacrum , Wayfarer's Bauble , Tithe , Gift of Estates , Land Tax , Endless Atlas , and Alms Collector . Depending on your build, you may then want Sram, Senior Edificer , Emeria, The Sky Ruin , Well of Lost Dreams , Sword of Fire and Ice , Skullclamp , Adanto, the First Fort , and Sword of the Animist .
