Sorry for answering late THCue, I've been busy the last weeks. You have some very nice cards in your deck, thank you for posting the list. I'll go into detail for some cards and share my opinion.

Aura Shards I really like it and this card will be added sooner or later.

As I said earlier, I just don't want to add fetch lands for different reasons. I don't think they are mandatory for mana fixing in this deck, also the price might turn some people off.

A friend of mine runs Slaughter the Strong in one of his Oathbreaker decks. I don't think it isn't that good because an opponent can still haven 4 1/1 creatures to block your stuff or to have a engine. I'm happy when it is this board wipe instead of another one because I can save some creatures.

Thallid Shell-Dweller , Perimeter Captain and Wall of Deceit ignore their abilities! They have the best mana/toughness value!

Cards like Sunpetal Grove rarely come in tapped, but that's personal taste.

On a side note Sacred Rites won me a game yesterday. I discarded 4 cards and swung big. I'll keep testing it.

The_Declan I once had both cards in the deck. It really is personal preference what to keep and add between both of them. I rarely block with my creatures so the ability is negligible for me. But thank you for your suggestion!

Okay here I go I might tweak it more but this is the only change I did.

What I have in my deck vs yours...

Mizzium Skin Added Protection

Windswept Heath swamped out a land that could come in tapped

Fog Bank great for that tron or a bigger mob

Aura Shards just broken in this deck kill everything!

Congregation at Dawn tutor for Tetsuko

Slaughter the Strong Another board whip but not mine!

Teyo, the Shieldmage Hexproof plus wallsnot to bad...

And here is what I don't have in mine...

Thallid Shell-Dweller I really do this this is poop and we can have a better card I hate saplings lol

Mana Drain Don't have another or I prolly would or a Force of Will If I could.

Meekstone Our walls are bigger than most creatures. With Tys out we run through them anyways.

Sacred Rites Deffo not to many ways for this to go wrong.

Sunpetal Grove open hand means this could come in tapped and not a fan of tapped chanced duals this is a fast deck.

Perimeter Captain not to keen on this card but who knows it's an option.

Wall of Deceit it's ability is poop. pulled him out.

This is our only differences in our decks. Like I said it's too strong to play with my friends, so I've been trying more casual decks for fun.

As HobbyGamer007 said, Thallid Shell-Dweller is very good on its own, besides the ability. I don't like Geist of the Archives because it is just too expensive.

I even own Mentor of the Meek :) I thought about this card some time ago, but I think it is better to invest the mana in more defenders. I usually don't have any mana for the ability left, in my opinion Mentor would be good for the late game but won't bring pressure to the table. Again, that is just my opinion on him.

Hey, nice first budget Commander deck build.

Consider including more two and three drop creatures who put a spore counter on themselves each upkeep and can use those counters to make a Sap (Mycon, Thallid, Farmer, Deathspore, Shel-Dweller, Germinator, Psychotrope, Vitaspore, etc.). These creatures can make a Sap simply by them just being on the battlefield getting counters. It costs no mana to put spore counters on them, no mana to make a token and it doesn't require another card to make a Sap, that's powerful.

Here's some budget suggestions ($1 or less):

Semi-budget cards to consider ($4-$6):

Non-budget cards to consider:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Elvish Skysweeper
  • Llanowar Scout
  • Ruthless Knave
  • Spore Flower
  • Falkenrath Noble
  • Golgari Cluestone
  • Death Mutation
  • Golgari Keyrune
  • Smothering Abomination

Good luck with your deck.
