Hey there! One way to strengthen and upgrade your deck is through your mana base! Maybe consider some of the following lands!

If this helps be sure to check out some of my decks, (Double Trouble EDH *PRIMER*), give me suggestions if you have and support it if you like it- I'd appreciate it! Anyways though, good luck on your deck, hope this helps, and have a great day! Happy tapping!!!

Hey there! As a fellow Zaxara player, I have some suggestions you might want to consider!

Check out my Hydra deck here!

DemMeowsephs on 『Primer』Combo-Cades: The Wallmaster | EDH

2 weeks ago

Yes Wall of Roots is a wall but I'm sure in most cases its more important to have something that gives you more color options, rather than just green, even if it is a wall. I was going to say Sylvan Caryatid but since you already have it Paradise Druid might be nice.

It also may be nice to consider cards like Burgeoning, Exploration, etc

DeltaMoth on Arcades - Quarantine King

Heyya Sheldaconda! Fellow Arcades user here, love the deck and the flavour! I have a few suggestions.


Ensnaring Bridge: "Us advocates feel this overpass can't be overcome!"

The Bridge works in both ways, allowing us to attack under it with our 'low-power' creatures and stifling other players by not letting them over it. Note also the incredible card advantage of Arcades and his leagues of bulwarks may stymy you somewhat.


Axebane Guardian: "Our efficient bane to our opponents!"

Axebane Guardian is similar to Overgrown Battlement in that it supplies a Cradle-esque effect dependent on the number of defenders you control. However, it adds any colour you choose, making it a defender all-star!

If you have enough defenders, Axebane goes infinite with High Alert. But as the deck is staying casual, you may want to omit this suggestion.


Brago, King Eternal: "Blink and you'll miss him!"

If you do decide to swing in, Brago can be a big help with built-in evasion and the ability to flicker all our creatures (for draws off Arcades, the Strategist) and artifacts such as your Sol Ring for double usage.


Static Orb, Winter Orb and Tangle Wire: "Our stacks of STAX will surely stack our odds!"

Various STAX card with various effects. They can play off your mana generating creatures as well as your artifacts. The best one for you here is Static Orb which shuts everyone down equally while you keep up strong creatures for big punts.


Wall of Roots, Ulvenwald Captive  Flip, Sylvan Caryatid and Vine Trellis: "Our dorks draw for us and excel us forward!"

These dorks can trigger Arcades due to being defenders as well as tapping for mana or in some cases giving us immediate mana. They also play well with STAX cards that tap lands down as you won't need them anymore!


I have many more suggestions, but this is all for now. If you like these and want more, say so!

Thank you!

DemMeowsephs on Arixmethes: Draw your deck

3 weeks ago

Hey there! I would recommend more ramp and some different lands! Maybe some of the following can be of use to you?

In the end let me know what you think! Did I miss anything? Or if you have any questions for me or want further help feel free to ask I'd love to help! If this does help be sure to check and support some of my decks: Double Trouble EDH, A Deal With the Devil EDH, and many others! Anyways though, hope this helps, good luck on your deck, and have a great day!!! Happy tapping!

DemMeowsephs on Tatyova's Playground (Simic Landfall/Draw EDH)

Hey there! Your manabase looks GREAT, but there are a great many upgrades I would recommend making as you continue to upgrade your deck! I would consider some of the following lands!

In the end, having a good mana base is important, and since your deck revolves around your mana base I think it definitely deserves a good upgrade in that regard. If this helps be sure to check out and support some of my decks- like Double Trouble EDH and A Deal With the Devil EDH! Anyways though hope this helps, good luck on your deck, and have a great day!

DemMeowsephs on What Pink Floyd and Dale Earnhardt have in common

1 month ago

G'day mate! Your mana base is indeed good, but I have a couple of suggestions you may find to your liking! Lets start off looking at your lands. I notice you have the shock lands, and true duals, which are pretty much some of the best so nice job there, as well as the check lands. There are a couple I would recommend however, that can be extremely helpful.

Fetch lands! Verdant Catacombs, Windswept Heath, Marsh Flats. These guys can search for the shock lands like Overgrown Tomb, giving you pretty much whatever color you need at the given moment which is super useful.

Filter lands! Take one color and poof it gives you a different color in a couple of combinations!Twilight Mire, Wooded Bastion, Fetid Heath.

Horizon lands and pain lands! These are some of my favorite, since they aren't conditional, like the check lands: which only can give you mana and come in untapped if you meet the requirement. These guys you can always rely on for mana, even at the cost. Nurturing Peatland, Horizon Canopy, Silent Clearing, Llanowar Wastes, Brushland, Caves of Koilos.

Fast lands! Those first few turns it can be nice to have untapped lands, right? Maybe use these! Blooming Marsh, Razorverge Thicket, Concealed Courtyard!

There is also a long list of multi lands that function very well- even better than some of the ones I just mentioned! Here are some of them you might like

I also recommend some more ramp cards, like Birds of Paradise, Exploration, Sylvan Caryatid, Burgeoning, Arcane Signet, Emerald Medallion, Jet Medallion, Pearl Medallion, Lotus Petal, Nature's Lore, Three Visits, Bloom Tender (adds three mana with your commander out) and many more!

In the end if any of this helps be sure to check out some of my decks, like Double Trouble EDH and A Deal With the Devil EDH, which I recently updated both of which with CSS and huge descriptions! Anyways though, hope this helps, good luck on your deck, and have a great day! Happy tapping!
