Woah Woah Woah Woah. Complete basics for your lands? I guarantee you, if you use some of the following lands instead, you will win SOOOO much more. Try some of the following:

Nice deck! But woah woah woah.... That is a LOT of basics. Maybe cut some of them for these?

Hmmm, I would recommend a huge upgrade in your lands section. The pi chart says....

So basically, the three colors that make up your deck in mana costs are pretty much even. So I would spread out your lands evenly. To do this, I would cut a LOT of the basics and include some of the following.

Hey, nice deck, seems pretty solid: maybe consider different lands? These may be out of budget, but I would consider them either way.

Again, these may be out of budget, but if they aren't I would definitely consider them! Good lands are important for a good commander deck! Anyways, if you found this helpful I would appreciate it if you gave suggestions and upvoted my commander deck: Double Trouble EDH! Hope this helps, good luck on your deck, and have a great day

Thanks for the advice, multimedia! I did some thinking on the deck and made a few changes which - I hope - make the deck a bit better. I did it with a heavy heart, but I cut both No Mercy and Phyrexian Obliterator. Even though I love them, they weren't really helping, especially the obliterator.

I also got rid of a few other cards you mentioned. I added Fauna Shaman and Elves of Deep Shadow, as well as Protean Hulk, and Erebos, Bleak-Hearted, although I'm not super confident about the latter. He's kind of okay, both as a sac outlet and draw engine, but I did some testing and he was never really spectacular. I'm actually having some trouble with the 4CMC spot. Pattern of Rebirth seems pretty cool, but it's mostly a one-and-done effect that needs a bit more setup than Eldritch Evolution. Also I don't want to cut too many creatures.

I also replaced Greenwarden of Murasa with Noxious Revival. It's a much easier way to recur stuff that Meren isn't able to get back. At some point I'll probably replace Erebos with a Sylvan Library and Rune-Scarred Demon or Shriekmaw with a Walking Ballista. Oh, and I'm planning to switch from Torment of Hailfire to Toxic Deluge or at least Damnation. I also added Massacre Wurm -- I love how he interacts with Sudden Spoiling.

When it comes to mana base, I just have much more black pips in the deck, that's why I'm using more swamps, but maybe I'll go with 7 forests and 11 swamps. I'll surely add Verdant Catacombs too, but I already went over budget like four times with this deck, so I'm trying to take it slow :D

In your opinion, does the deck look better now than it did before the changes? Thanks again for your advice! It's been really helpful!

Hi there,

I've got an Arid Mesa and I'm looking for a Misty Rainforest or a Verdant Catacombs. Of course I'll add something to cover the price difference; we'll work something out. Please let me know if you're interested in a trade!

Thanks in advance! Mattio
