Tainted Wood Discussion

Mandalorian on Death Stare

Don't forget Sisters of Stone Death and Reaper of the Wilds!

Unfortunaetly there is no support for the Gorgon creature type and many of them are very clunky and cost a lot. I think in order to make the deck fast enough you will need to adapt a reanimater package. Stuff like-

Entomb

Reanimate

Buried Alive

Animate Dead

Dance of the Dead

Jarad's Orders

This way you can do something like Entomb Sisters of Stone Death and then play Animate Dead on it to cheat in into play on turn 2! This way you can get these creatures out earlier than ramping with cards like Orochi Sustainer.

Just my 2 cents.

Also the removal package could use some work

Doom Blade

Go for the Throat

Abrupt Decay

These are some cheap options

The mana base also need help. Add some duals. Nothing crazy or expensive but cards like Llanowar Wastes and Tainted Wood can really help the deck be consistant

Aiding on Anafenza Hate Bears/Midrange

2 months ago

A lot of game stores (at least around me anyways) also discourage mass land killing. A crucible effect + Ghost Quarter is fine, Armageddon is frowned upon.

I actually have an Anafenza list myself, so if you would like, you can look at my land base (I use very few fetches because money isn't worth it to get them yet), but you also could find some spells/creatures you like. My deck is muuuch more midrange and focused on ramp and the word "exile." My deck doesn't have issues closing the game when it gets there, but from my testing, its a slog until you get there, then the decks wins by a large margin.

Also, my deck is a touch on the pricey side when it comes to the lands, but I rarely have mana issues. I would say look into the pain lands (Caves of Koilos (<2$), Llanwar Wastes(<2$), Brushland($10)), the "Tainted" cycle, Tainted Field and Tainted Wood, Sungrass Prairie, and others for nice fixing.

Hi Guint!! Here are some suggestions I think you could utilize for Ishkanah. So far it looks good!

The things we want to make sure you have in this deck are ways to activate delirium, as well as ways to activate Ish's tribal effects. Let's start with the spiders themselves~

Now onto the Delirium Mechanic. Making sure your own cards into the graveyard can seem counterproductive but a lot of things benefit from it. So first, how do we self mill?

Now for some super fun cards that benefit from a graveyard presence.

Now lets talk about Black and Green as colors in EDH. Black/Green has a few things that it needs to run undoubtedly. One of its major problems is card draw, so you're definitely going to want to auto-include Harmonize and Phyrexian Arena. I would also consider Lifecrafter's Bestiary.

Removal: Putrefy, Murder, Hero's Downfall, Abrupt Decay, Krosan Grip, Golgari Charm, Toxic Deluge, In Garruk's Wake, Acidic Slime, Beast Within. Dictate of Erebos to be used in conjunction with a sacrifice outlet like Ashnod's Altar (sac your extra tokens for mana!)

Protection: Asceticism, Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, Heroic Intervention

Tutors: Green Sun's Zenith, Diabolic Tutor, Demonic Tutor

Ramp: Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Solemn Simulacrum, Sol Ring, Explosive Vegetation, Thran Dynamo, Commander's Sphere, Golgari Signet, Cryptolith Rite, Harrow, Crop Rotation, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Yavimaya Elder.


The only other thing I want to say about your deck is that you should probably up your land count to at least 36. 30 is usually too little for most EDH decks in my experience. Unless you're going super aggro, you'll find yourself short on a lot of land drops.

If you wanted to upgrade your lands, here are some relatively inexpensive things you could add:

Golgari Rot Farm, Command Tower, Jungle Hollow, Temple of Malady, Woodland Cemetery, Overgrown Tomb, Llanowar Wastes, Tainted Wood, Grim Backwoods, Bojuka Bog, Hissing Quagmire, Temple of the False God, Drownyard Temple, Ghost Quarter, and any lands that Cycle in your colors :)

GmT Thank you for the suggestions, i was looking into Pawn of Ulamog for a card to add. Tainted Wood is already in the deck. I saw that card and added it in right away into the mana base

Thanks for taking a shot at the Commander/EDH format. The best way to start is probably with one of the preconstructed decks, but there's really no wrong way to begin. I'd also suggest checking out EDHREC sometime, as it's a useful resource for building decks. Beyond that, I thought I might start by suggesting a few budget friendly lands to improve your color consistency: Command Tower, Evolving Wilds, Tainted Wood, and Jungle Hollow.

forgot to mention Tainted Wood. It'd be doing you a lot better than Blooming Marsh. the chances of it entering untapped are very low, while the chances of you controlling a swamp are considerably higher. Great deck, I'm currently brewing my own Meren. +1!
