Tainted Wood Discussion

smiffdemon on Ishkanah Stuff

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!

Deckstats.net TCG Mid-Price $47.59, still have $2.41.

If you trying to get a big reach spider, maybe Jungle Weaver with his Cycling: might be better, that way he's still playable in the early turns, instead of the Skysnare Spider.

Perhaps get a Tainted Wood or Llanowar Wastes or a Commander's Sphere in to assist with your mana sourcing. A couple times now you've had that problem because of the limited draw / fetch. Evolving Wilds & Terramorphic Expanse are good in this format too for mana fixing.

Mycosynth Wellspring can also help. Or a Skullclamp to consume the 1/1 Snake tokens for 2 cards.

New suggestion: I might replace Fog with Druid's Deliverance since for 1 extra mana you'll get much more value out of it. I would have recommended Contagion Engine but it appears to have gone up by $10 since I got mine, so...

Also, one problem that comes up a lot in commander is mana fixing. It's hard to make sure you have the right color at the right time, so even though they're a little slow, it's good to run things like Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Jungle Hollow, Golgari Rot Farm, and Tainted Wood.

Triton: I'll definitely grab a Temple of Malady for the deck! I'm not too much of a fan of Tainted Wood, though, because it's backfired for me too many times. Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos are great cards, but I didn't want to make this deck too similar to my Yahenni build :( And thank you for your comment and upvote, as always! ;)

Wolfrage76: I wish I owned an Earthcraft, it would be perfect here :( I need to get another copy of Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor for this deck, agreed. Thank you for your comment and upvote too! :)

gdm1989: While Vigor is a great card, it doesn't fit into this build very well :( Walking Ballista is a very conditional card, and Mirri's Guile/Sensei's Divining Top do very little without shuffle effects (of which there are relatively few). Also, all four of those cards are a lot of money for pretty weak effects in this deck...Thank you for your comment anyway though! :)

The first thing that comes to my attention is the land base, the only two lands that I think of that I'd recommend adding are Temple of Malady and/or Tainted Wood. Idk if this has been suggested previously, but Grave Pact and/or Dictate of Erebos are other rather staxy cards depending on how much sacrifice is in the deck.

Otherwise looks solid! I will assist you in getting to 100 upvotes if I haven't already!
