AkaAkuma on Reyhan&Ishai | Where Unstoppable Meets Immovable!

Teeg unfortunately would shut down allot of my deck and diverses from what I want to do with Reyhan (grow, not tax). So in my deck it's really bad.

Not being able to play Doubling Season , Traverse the Outlands or Greater Good not only sound like a headache but also the start of a dead hand. I have 12 cards he shuts down.

Zahnfeli thank you so much for the kind words! Traverse the Outlands is not currently in the deck because of the budget, but is definitely on my upgrade list if I ever decide to go all in on this deck :)

I would replace Garruk's Packleader with Beast Whisperer .He costs one mana less and works with all creatures not only the strong.

I think Dragonlair Spider fits in very well with your commander's theme.

Your temperatures are usually very expensive (because they are strong) so I would add a little more ramp and maybe something to get them back from the cemetery. The two cards I can imagine with you thereby quite well: Genesis or Traverse the Outlands

Also I like the idea of dragonb0y777 pretty much

kevinscheurwaterI see your point. You can always cut some of the wincons, like Akroma's Memorial or one of the high CMC ramps like Traverse the Outlands . I did cut one land for testing purposes a time, but I still don't know how it would impact the deck as a whole. As for 5 games, I saw no difference.

Allright no problem! I have this incredibly fun dude in my playgroup who always includes Blood Moon and Back to Basics in his decks, so I can't live without those basics haha.

I also play a decent amount of basics for Traverse the Outlands .

vdiddy1 on I hope this will be good.

"Other" Section Observations:

Burgeoning good card, but you have alot of multiple lands per turn cards

Constant Mists solid

Crop Rotation Unnecessary imo

Life / Death Can only use one spell, can prob find something that is more impactful to the deck

Sensei's Divining Top Yes

Sylvan Advocate Good because it's a 2/3 for 2 mana, but only adds significant value with commitment to land creatures

Sylvan Library V good card, excels if you maintain lifegain sub-strategy

Titania, Protector of Argoth Only good if you commit to the graveyard recall sub-strategy

Traverse the Outlands fantastic, can this be turned into a win condition?

Volcanic Offering fun af, but probably better options for the card slot

Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger Print out Business Cards saying "GG" for when you play this

Wildfire Abso-freakin-lutely

Zuran Orb A must have if you commit to graveyard recall + lifegain sub strategies

Additional Observations:

World Breaker kinda sucks for 7 mana

Bane of Progress a conditional 6 drop is risky; amazing sideboard card in our meta

Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip her -2 will trigger the legendary rule

Exsanguinate Love it.

Final Comment:

Your non-creature game is strong, but your damage output is weak and is currently the biggest flaw facing your deck. Your best bet imo is to either rip out creatures and synergize removal + damage or add in a few more big trample creatures. I think your comparative advantage lies in creatures: you'll consistently have an ungodly mana pool to take advantage of them, and you're already relying on creatures for this concept to work.

Some good creatures for this deck:

Liege of the Tangle

Oran-Rief Hydra

Charnelhoard Wurm

Blightsteel Colossus

Ghalta, Primal Hunger

Molimo, Maro-Sorcerer

Phantom Nishoba

Stonehoof Chieftain

Worldspine Wurm

Rishkar's Expertise and Traverse the Outlands both work wonders in decks with big lads.
