Tectonic Rift Discussion

dusterGGG on Land Destruction - $40 Budget Build

Roiling Terrain might be better than Tectonic Rift. I'd recommend at least testing it.

Sounds like you're getting there!

The problem with big early creature can be somewhat solved by either adding more unconditional single-target removal like Bedevil or Murderous Rider . Just playing a few copies of Ritual of Soot main, which imo would also be good.

You can cut The Wanderer and Tectonic Rift from your sideboard and add a few extra copies of Soot there. That helps mostly if you play the deck in Bo3 though.

I know we did Nissa, but I had been thinking of this prompt and a different Nissa and had been wanting to submit it but haven't been able to get to my computer until now. So here's my submission and then we can continue with other shifted walkers.


Nissa, Tectonic Vengeance

Legendary Planeswalker - Nissa

+2 Creatures without flying can't block this turn.

-3 Destroy target land. You lose 1 life.

-5 Each opponent gets an emblem with, "At the beginning of your upkeep, this emblem deals damage to you equal to the number of land cards in your graveyard."

Basically she's a Tectonic Rift that can happen over and over again. Or Magmatic Chasm + Earth Rift . That makes her truly the opposite of what she is in green. Don't underestimate her ultimate, either; in a multiplayer edh format, everybody has fetchlands, sac lands, cycling lands, and Evolving Wilds and Fabled Passage and Lotus Field ... I mean, her ultimate hits everybody, and makes people think about filtering cards from their hands. It gets through their pillow forts and their deathtouch armies, and puts a clock on each opponent. And for opponents who don't put lands into their graveyard (maybe mono colored opponents), she comes with an ability that helps with that. :)

So yeah, the former challenge remains

Some of the cards you're running aren't the best in commander. Some cards I'd look at cutting are Renewed Faith , Repel the Darkness , Gideon's Reproach , Vengeance , Tectonic Rift , Demotion , Demolish , Screaming Shield , and Fresh-Faced Recruit .

There are a variety of cards you could look at adding, depending on the exact focus of your deck. Some cards you will likely want regardless however are Boros Charm , Swords to Plowshares , Path to Exile , Smothering Tithe , Commander's Sphere , Solemn Simulacrum , Burnished Hart , Staff of Nin , and Marshal's Anthem

Loizo on My First Deck (Temur Elementals)

Hi, nice list ! Good point for the Creeping Trailblazer . Now I think the next step (as the others here and on reddit said) would be multiple shocklands (don't buy the checklands they rotate "soon". AND changing the weakest elementals for straight up good cards like

Scorch Spitter for Cavalier of Flame Fire Elemental for Beast Whisperer Tectonic Rift for Lightning Strike

Also Winged Words seems like a weak card with only two flyers in the deck. Chemister's Insight is good or Sinister Sabotage .

Have fun :p

Savage Beating, Feudkiller's Verdict, Mother of Runes, Tenza, Godo's Maul, Bastion Protector, Tectonic Rift, Crush Underfoot, Bearer of the Heavens, Quarry Colossus, Kalemne's Captain, Sigarda's Aid would be good good options to consider; but they all depend on how tribal you want your deck to be or how commander centered you want it to play as. A deck like this was the first one I made, a giant exclusive tribal deck. But that was my playstyle and likes, it all depends on how you like your game to run!

Teleportal, Magmatic Chasm, Falter, Mark for Death, Seismic Stomp, and Tectonic Rift all muddle up your opponent's non-fliers. All star Bedlam could make or break the game, a more one-sided option is Goblin War Drums, Raging River, and War Cadence.

Door of Destinies, Obelisk of Urd, Cover of Darkness, Metallic Mimic, and Vanquisher's Banner all help out your chosen creature type well.

Look into some shroud and hexproof options, as you won't be targeting your creatures with anything, so making sure they don't get removed is important.
