Hey, nice budget version of Teysa :)

Budget lands to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • 3x Plains
  • 3x Swamps
  • Temple of the False God

Hey, good first version, nice Avacyn, Angel of Hope :)

29 lands is unfortunately not enough land especially since Tariel is seven mana... The priority for deck changes to consider is to add more lands and add more ramp. I recommend 38 lands and 5 more additional mana sources. You don't just need more lands for Tariel you need them to be able to consistently play the other Angels in your deck since many of them have high mana costs.

Budget cards ($3 or less each, most are $1 each) to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Angel's Feather
  • Scroll of Avacyn
  • Pious Interdiction
  • Angelic Gift
  • Increasing Devotion
  • Syndicate Guildmage
  • Cathar's Companion
  • Angelic Wall
  • Ritual of Rejuvenation
  • Flameblade Angel
  • Angel of Renewal
  • Teyo, the Shieldmage
  • Kaya, Bane of the Dead
  • Replenish

Replenish is an amazing expensive price card, it's great you have it, but it's not doing much here because there's only seven enchantments. Because you have Replenish you should consider building an enchantment matters deck with lots of enchantments.


Other budget upgrades to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

I think you meant to put in Tainted Isle instead of Tainted Field

Been super busy lately so sorry for the late replies!

@Limo: Thanks for the upvote! I'll be sure to take a look at your deck!

@MooneBoyIrish: If you had read the deck description I've put the relevant ruling for auras there as many get confused by them; basically auras only target when cast so if they are put into play as part of an effect (ie. Zur, Replenish , Open the Vaults , etc) they can be attached to a legal permanent of your choosing (as defined by the enchant ability) without targeting that permanent. As MtgMaster02 pointed out Triclopean Sight is indeed both backup to Daybreak Coronet as well as an effective means to get Stasis up and running.

@SlowMoon17: I'd say both yes and no. I've slightly drifted away from the straight 1v1 environment to make it more resilient and able to at least hold its own in multiplayer as well (due to the local meta). I feel like there are faster ways of combo winning ( Doomsday , Phyrexian Unlife , etc) but that's just boring. There's something about playing land destruction/ Stasis and seeing the light drain from your oppenents' eyes that just makes it oh so worth it haha.

@Im_ygy: Yea... lol. I just looked it up and the entire decklist non-foiled, without Timetwister and OG duals is still around $2100 NM/PL

@MordMetal: It really depends on how budget you want. Obviously don't foil it lol; but in all seriousness you can save a ton on the land base alone. Add more basics and tap lands ( Arcane Sanctum / Vivid Creek / Vivid Marsh / Vivid Meadow ), use Evolving Wilds / Terramorphic Expanse instead of fetches, etc. If your overall CMC is still low swap Dark Confidant for Dark Tutelage , Snapcaster Mage for Archaeomancer / Mnemonic Wall . As for Timetwister it really depends on what effect you are looking for... GY shuffle: Elixir of Immortality , Card draw: Windfall , both: Time Spiral although it costs double the mana (and untaps!) and is still expensive although still cheaper by a phenomenal amount. These are just some examples. I'd recommend doing an advanced Gatherer search (https://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Default.aspx) for specific effects you are looking for in a cheaper card variant.

@Dankey Thank you! I like running Jace, the Mind Sculptor for the Brainstorm effect (and Unsummon effect if needed) to filter away any enchantments that find thier way into my hand (so i can tutor them up for free). In 1v1 Jace basically lets me know what my opponent is drawing most of the time too; so for now I think he is just too versatile to get rid of.

@cango35: I really like Winding Canyons in most creature based decks but i think it'd be kind of a waste here for a few reasons. Firstly I overall barely have any creatures. Secondly the additional 2 mana is killer... it'd mean i'd need 6 mana PLUS the land to get it off and that's just not worth the luxury of flash in my opinion. Thanks for the suggestion though!

@hoffie4: I've had Strionic Resonator in the deck for ages! You must've missed it XD

@Auraprime1984: There are a few options. The rest of the mana base is pretty solid, so to be honest it doesn't matter a whole lot. You could add more basics, the third painland ( Caves of Koilos ), Exotic Orchard , maybe Tainted Isle / Tainted Field , Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , Prairie Stream / Sunken Hollow , Choked Estuary / Port Town , etc. You could also use some tap lands like Arcane Sanctum , Celestial Colonnade , Fetid Pools / Irrigated Farmland , Temple of Deceit / Temple of Enlightenment , etc. Signet lands are also an option Darkwater Catacombs / Skycloud Expanse . You mostly just have to figure out what would work best with your build. Hope that helps!

multimedia on EDH - Budget Vampire Tribal

Hey, keeping your overall deck heavy black is good, the right direction, because of the low budget white and red are better as splashes mostly just for Edgar. You have about $50 to spend before you reach $100. All my card suggestions will cost half that. For the manabase consider a few more budget dual lands?

Can cut basic Mountains and Plains for these dual lands.

Most of my Vampire suggestions are one and two drop Vamps because I think you need more of them since they give you board presence faster because of eminence. The 10 budget Vampires to consider including:

Adding all these additional cards will cost about $24. This leaves another $20+ for a few higher end cards with Edgar such as Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Drana, Liberator of Malakir and Shared Animosity . Good luck with your deck.

Time Wipe , Dromar's Cavern , Esper Panorama , Tainted Field , Tainted Isle , Dimir Aqueduct , Orzhov Basilica , Zur's Weirding , Mana Vault , Chromatic Lantern , Mana Geode , Rhystic Study , Emeria Shepherd , Hanna, Ship's Navigator , Scrap Trawler , Codex Shredder . There ya go. And these are almost exclusively odd. Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre might also be fun. I'm not really sure what you're going for with the Teferi's Protection lock. Are you looking to lock yourself/your opponents out? If so, using an Instant is kinda difficult to recur consistently each turn, it would probably be easier to just run a big ass protection package and find a combo that keeps you safe indefinitely. Sucks that the person didn't help you out, might wanna flag that the thread mods. Anyways, feel free to give me a better idea of your gameplan so I can make some more tailored suggestions!

Hey, nice upgrade of the precon, but you need more Vamps, less of all the other stuff :) Good job cutting Powerstone for Lantern, that was the right choice since your deck is three colors.

Edgar's eminence is a major reason to play him as a Commander and to take more advantage of eminence consider more low CMC Vamps? One drops, two drops and a couple of three drops? The idea is to have more opportunities to play Vamps in the early game which then in return gives you more Vamps on the battlefield because each Vamp you cast gives you a 1/1 Vamp token.

Budget Vamps ($5 or less each) consider adding:

You already have your high CMC Vamp to play, six drop Edgar from the Command Zone therefore you don't need a lot of other high CMC creatures. Instead cut back on the high CMC Vamps five CMC or higher for lower CMC Vamps make it easier to have more Vamps on the battlefield which in return makes Edgar's ability better, to have more Vamps to add counters too. If you like some of these suggestions I offer help to make cuts.

Shared Animosity and Bloodline Keeper  Flip are two expensive price, but powerful cards with Vamps and Edgar.


Some budget lands ($5 or less each) to consider adding:

These can replace lands here that ETB (enter the battlefield) tapped such as Orzhov Guildgate, Boros Guildgate, Akoum Refuge, etc.

Good luck with your deck.
