Traveler's Amulet Discussion

Do you feel 22 lands is consistent enough with Niv-Mizzet, Parun in the deck? Maybe Traveler's Amulet would be a good addition, fixing your mana and keeping you on top of the curve

Spirits on Budget Thraximundar - EDH $50

Night's Whisper $1.58 is too much, Sign in Blood is $0.18 (and can target opponents), Read the Bones is $0.16 but I don't like the CMC3. Night's Whisper/Sign in Blood definitely the best. Brainstorm $0.70 is even better imo. Ponder is $2.30 so not a great option. Brainstorm/Sign in Blood best for budget. Altar's Reap don't like it either. Costly Plunder also not quite right.

Telling Time also not bad in budget $0.23 lets you scry one to bottom and replaces itself.

Dimir Signet $1.80 is so much. Talisman of Dominance $1.29 is better because it's CMC2. Also, Talisman of Indulgence $0.72. Fellwar Stone $1.25 but less predictable. I think the Signets are great, but $1.80 is tough.

Baleful Strix is $2.95 but pretty amazing, if you free up enough cash for him.

Archfiend of Depravity $1.01 can dominate this format, you've seen it from my Glissa, the Traitor deck.

Displacement Wave slows you down too much I feel, it can give you a Thraximundar alone. You control it with , but it's not going to work in 1 hour format, outside of the 1 hour feel it's pretty weak anyway.

Soul's Fire also feels wrong, a turn you cast Thraximundar you won't have mana for it, only a handful of creatures going to deal enough to be of consequence.

Shrieking Affliction is going to guarantee that 3x players are attacking you, and it's too slow to win you the game.

Nighthowler is a better Wight of Precinct Six (you can run both), he is CMC3, but he also counts your graveyard, and he also has Bestow if you have the extra mana (modular)

Consuming Aberration is a higher CMC, but he can also build the graveyards, remember that time SolomonsEfreet had him out. But high CMC. $1.90 too.

Can up you mana ramp with stuff like Mycosynth Wellspring $0.15,

You have Fleshbag Marauder & Merciless Executioner but missing their good buddy Slum Reaper $0.19.

Traveler's Amulet and Wanderer's Twig are great for color fixing and ramping. Wayfarer's Bauble goes onto the battlefield for CMC1 more.

Deadeye Navigator has lots of positive applications in your build, but he's $2.15. I won't list everyone, you can read the LTB/ETB guys, but Peregrine Drake is infinite ETB & infinite mana.

Murder always a nice multi-purpose removal in this format.

Far // Away $0.24 can also be handy.

You're mana source distribution is quite good 24% / 24% / 37% .

Vona's Hunger was pretty good when SolomonsEfreet played it.

Diabolic Tutor for Torment of Hailfire or the other half of Rite of Replication / Gray Merchant of Asphodel win-con.

Dark Petition is $2.32 but can assist with casting the Gray Merchant of Asphodel, I also don't mind Razaketh's Rite because I just cycle it for if it's drawn early on.

Desecration Demon might be fun, he's only CMC4.

I think your fairly balanced too, maybe a little too heavy on Sorcery, sub 1 for an instant or another creature or artifact.

One of the nice things with Thraximundar is you should get left alone early on because your not an immediate threat vs. someone like your Xenagos.

I wouldn't go counterspell (maybeboard has so many), won't work in this format effectively.

Havengul Lich has some recursion built in, but wouldn't say he's really that synergistic with Thraximundar but he can target others graveyards.

He's not a Xenagos, God of Revels but a good serviceable Commander in $50 budget. Crosis, the Purger no way lol, Sedris, the Traitor King would also work but he the same CMC anyway,

Spirits on Glissa, Scrap Trawler $50 EDH

Hi bushido_man96,

Traveler's Amulet and Wanderer's Twig are very good in this format, I do use them frequently in $50 budget decks (example 2C Mardu Alesha, Boros' Crust.

Whip of Erebos is very important in this format, often because combos are less prevalent, and often you will be killed through having your life reduced to 0. Lifelink is powerful in $50 budget commander league. Also, it's an artifact so can avoid removal, plus it allows me to recur creatures like Fleshbag Marauder/Slum Reaper/Merciless Executioner/etc that I can't recur, to trigger my Glissa, the Traitor ability to return my artifacts. Sangromancer to can gain quite a bit of life in an Barter in Blood/Mutilate/Etc type situation.

I did opt-in things like Golgari Cluestone/Horizon Spellbomb/Etc because of draw or LTB triggers as well (on stuff like Mycosynth Wellspring for example. I thought I needed more tutors Razaketh's Rite/Diabolic Tutor but you might be right where I need more ramp now. I'll try and get some reps in, I have 4 $50 commanders now, so i usually randomly choose, but I can select, last season, and this season Glissa, the Traitor runs a 33% win ratio (in 4-player pods), so it is fairly consistent.

Graveborn Muse recently added has been doing tons of work for me, giving Bone Picker a chance now, really like the deathtouch.

You could probably replace Traveler's Amulet for Wayfarer's Bauble, 1 extra mana to pop but it gives you some ramp instead of just search. You probably have enough Wastes to run Extraplanar Lens too. People think they're clever for running snow covered lands but who else at the table is gonna be running wastes haha

Out of curiousity, what's your experience been with Damping Sphere? I tried it for a bit but it didn't pay off very well in my meta.

Is gaining life a major theme of the deck? Does it help you out that much? If not, I'd consider cutting the life gain cards for more artifacts that let you search out basic lands. I'd cut cards like Whip of Erebos and Sangromancer to add in Traveler's Amulet and Wanderer's Twig. That should help you with your mana problem.

Welcome to the format! The first thing thats jumping out at me is this deck needs ramp. The good thing is you're in Green, so you have a lot of nice options for ramping and colour fixing. Traveler's Amulet is something I'd cut, because you have access to spells that put extra land directly on the battlefield. Rampant Growth, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Grow from the Ashes, Harrow and Natural Connection are the types of cards you should be considering. Emmara has lovely Mark Winters art so lets try and make sure we can pay to get her out on the battlefield! Growth Spasm finds land and gets you a token! I try to run 36/7 lands and at least 6 pieces of ramp, but prefer 8-10. The most important thing in EDH is getting to cast your spells.

Sundering Growth fits your populate theme and you're going to find that SO MANY decks in Commander have problem artifacts and enchantments you're going to want to destroy.

Another fun (and very cheap) effect for GW tokens is Glare of Subdual. I don't think its essential, but its a nice trick.

When I had a token deck, if I was running Decimator of the Provinces like you are I liked to run From Beyond. Gets you a token every turn but then searching out your big eldrazi when your ready for a big attack is great. Awakening Zone also gives you a free token once a turn. AZ is like $3 as of this posting, most everything else so far I've mentioned should be a buck or under. Going up in price to $7 or $8 is Anointed Procession, which is the cheapest token-doubling effect I think you can get right now.

As a general rule for Commander, always make sure you run ramp removal. Things like Swords to Plowshares and Return to Dust are really good in the format and will almost never be a dead card. If theme is important, something like Feral Incarnation (or any other high cmc spell) can become Ezuri's Predation.
