Unlife, Thada Adel, Acquisitor looks super fun especially if I use her to play a mono play sea monsters deck. Ezuri is fine but not really what I'm looking for.

VampDemigod YEah Jhoria is fun- I used to have her, but the deck got boring so i scraped it. I might have to take you up on your offer as I am not the best deck builder. If it's not to much of a problem A Thada build would be nice to see.

Thada Adel, Acquisitor is a fun build, fairly affordable and because you tend to use other peoples ramp, you can usually drop some big beaters early like Stormtide Leviathan

Ezuri, Claw of Progress itself is on the pricier side, but the rest of the deck can be built with lots of affordable efficient creatures that tend to be unblockable and grow quickly such as Invisible Stalker

Thada Adel, Acquisitor. Massive ramp as she plays every Sol Ring in the game. Might be too expensive though.

Octopus Umbra is a nice buff and it takes out a blocker.

Is Anowon, the Ruin Thief your commander? You didn't say.

wgoms: Thank you for your suggestions! They all fit the deck very well.

  • Kindred Discovery is a little out of my current budget, but will definitely make a future version of the deck.

  • Bloodforged Battle-Axe is interesting, but seems a little inconsistent. I will do some more playtesting and get back to you.

  • Thada Adel, Acquisitor was in the original decklist, but I took her out because she drew a lot of hate and didn't really further the strategy of the deck.

  • Thieving Skydiver is a card I had not thought about in conjunction with the deck! Its ability is interesting, and more consistent than I thought at first sight, as it can "steal" your own equipment to get around Equip costs.

  • Door of Destinies, Coat of Arms, and Vanquisher's Banner are all very good, and I will have to think about what I could cut for them.

Thada Adel, Acquisitor is amazing in commander. Stealing sol rings or other ramp then moving on to bigger artifacts.

Strength of the Tajuru is great for counters and you can sneak it in after blockers are chosen. Illusionist's Bracers double your counter doubling.

Most commander decks have more lands, so at least 33 + ramp, maybe more (i aim for a total of 40 land + ramp at least).

Since you’ll be filling the graveyard you may want to consider Dig Through Time and Treasure Cruise for card draw. Both equate to powerful cantrips in the correct build.

It would be nice to have a backup plan in case someone disrupts your Mirran Spy + Walking Ballista combo ( Thada Adel, Acquisitor and Praetor's Grasp will ruin your day). Laboratory Maniac will work for backup upkeep win con, and is easily tutorable via Drift of Phantasms (but avoid Thassa's Oracle for this build).

Some bounce aside from Cyclonic Rift will stop you from losing to Pithing Needle-type effects or Linvala, Keeper of Silence as well as graveyard hate such as Rest in Peace or Grafdigger's Cage. Collector Ouphe and Kataki, War's Wage will be big problems without adequate removal.

I hope this helps.
