eliakimras on Atraxa Counter Productive

Buddy, maybe you should try lands that tap for 3 or more colors to cast your colored spells properly. Vivid Grove, Vivid Meadow, Vivid Creek and Vivid Marsh all synergize with counters theme. Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse often find your missing colors. Seaside Citadel, Arcane Sanctum, Opulent Palace are also too good to pass. Opal Palace is also an all-star here, because it can give Atraxa +1/+1 counters, so she can proliferate herself and get huge right away. You also should be at 38 lands, because your deck has some high mana costs. You often will find yourself mana screwed with so few lands.

Alright, it seems the deck is a bit top heavy. Here are my suggestions. I have structured this rework of the deck to sac and get the mana out quick till you can have Meren stay on the board long enough or just hard cast the big things. You don't have to take my suggestions but I highly insist that this will make her work again.

Take out Nirkana Revenant for Satyr Wayfinder

Take out Hermit Druid for Ravenous Chupacabra

Take out Demon of Catastrophes for Viridian Zealot

Take out Razaketh, the Foulblooded for Viridian Emissary

Take out Plague Wind for Wall of Blossoms

Take out Doomgape for Bontu the Glorified

Take out Ruinous Path for Vindictive Lich

Take out Altar of Dementia for Dawntreader Elk

Take out Necropotence for Wood Elves

Take out Deadbridge Chant for Merciless Executioner

Take out The Gitrog Monster for Slum Reaper

Take out Yahenni, Undying Partisan for Diabolic Intent

Take out Voldaren Pariah  Flip for Damnation

Take out Lord of Extinction for Whiptongue Hydra

Take out Stitch Together for Swamp

Take out Vivid Grove for Forest

Take out Temple of the False God for Swamp

Take out Vivid Marsh for Swamp

Take out Vivid Grove for Forest

Take out Slippery Karst for Forest

Take out Polluted Mire for Forest

Take out Desecrated Tomb for Forest

Take out Golgari Guildgate for Forest

Do you think adding more five-colored lands like Exotic Orchard, Terramorphic Expanse, Vivid Grove, Vivid Creek, Vivid Marsh, Vivid Meadow, Aether Hub, or similar effects would be good?

+1 from me!

galaxyman7 on Rainbow Roids (5 color +1/+1 counters)

1 month ago

Ok time for another complete overhaul!!?? Turns out a 5 color deck is a little hard to nail down. And that I was overrating some cards and underrating others.

Removed:

  1. Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit - too slow, Mana intensive, and isn't a threat on it's own. Got hit by removal way too often.

  2. Dromoka's Command - not a very aggressive card, and its other modes besides the fight and counter were never used. Still could be a good sideboard card vs. burn and blood moon decks

  3. Bloodbraid Elf - Was great some of the time, and other times just hit bloodhall ooze or something. I want something more synergistic.

  4. Plaxcaster Frogling- to be honest I never play tested it. It might be great against certain decks, but it seemed slow and unimpactful.

  5. Simic Initiate - not a standalone threat, and weak to removal.

Added:

  1. Skyrider Elf- I passed up this card because it's a little boring. But after playing against humans and really needing a strong flyer, and then play testing it, it exceeds my expectations and is nice and aggressive after a turn 1 hardened scales.

  2. Citadel Siege - this card may be one of the most underrated cards ever. It's simply awesome in this deck. Especially with all the 1/1 flyers we get from abzan ascendancy and Hangarback. It just makes anything and everything a threat. Or you can play it for the other mode and use it as a versatile piece of removal. It hits haste guys, man lands, guys that have death triggers, etc. Its absolutely what you want to top deck when you are facing a big threat. 3 seems excessive, but it's really, really good.

  3. Zameck Guildmage- I was considering Tireless tracker, but then compared it to this card, which arguably does a lot more, but still draws a card for 2 Mana. Combined with Hangarback walker or abzan ascendancy it can make an army of threats after a board wipe. It can make 1 drop top decks actually good. It uses the counters on creatures that don't really need more, like bloodhall ooze or paladin. It's that key piece of the deck that actually gives it some inevitability late game.

  4. Ulvenwald Tracker- This card is also very underrated. It pretty much demands to be killed or it will keep killing everything you play. It takes advantage of the huge creatures you get which would usually just be sitting around getting chump blocked. It gets much better with the citadel seiges being able to pump it so it can fight stuff itself.

  5. Experiment One - A very quick and hard to disrupt start with a constrictor on turn 2. Also a very nice top deck with citadel seiges out, and fuel for zameck Guildmage.

Land changes:

-2x Llanowar Reborn - I really wish I could keep playing this land, but since ziggurat is gone, I needed to cut it for more fixing

+2x Vivid Grove- Almost never runs out of counters. Definitely slower than other lands but it's necessary.

+2x Holdout Settlement - seems odd but it works pretty well. Usually we have creatures out turn 1 that we can use this on and not feel too bad. We can also use creatures that just came out.

  • Fast Lands - In order for our manabase to not just kill us, we have a variety of fast lands that give us as much variety of color as possible. Playing 8 of the pain lands was way too much. 6 is still harsh, but manageable.

Why are you playing Vivid Grove and Joiner Adept in your Mono-Green deck? Elvish Piper doesn't seem to do much in a deck that has so much ramp and no expensive creatures.

Some recommendations that jump out at me are

Cut Joiner Adept, Elvish Piper, Wirewood Elf, Creeping Mold, Chorus of Might, Vivid Grove

Add Priest of Titania, Copperhorn Scout, Arbor Elf, Beast Within, Beastmaster Ascension, Mosswort Bridge

Hey ! New user here, but a long time Magic player (excuse my french, 'cause I'm, well french...) I really enjoyed your deck, so I ordered the cards to play it. The first thing that comes to my mind that this deck really lacks some mana stability and some ramp. Every time I try to take a seven card hand, I haven't the good colors, or I have no land, and it's crucial for the first turns to get this engine on :) So maybe you could exchange some basic land with cards such as charge lands like Vivid Marsh or Vivid Grove (maybe it's slover, but it's more stable). Big ass ending cards like Villainous Wealth are overkill, and you won't be able to play it if you don't survive the first turns... Maybe replace it with some more ramp cards like Wayfarer's Bauble or stuff like that. What do you think of it ? (I upvoted your deck of course ;) )

YaminoNakani on Animar

2 months ago

Biggest issue I see here is a lack of focus and not enough creatures for a creatures only matter deck.

Animar, Soul of Elements wants two main things: Cast creatures and get +1/+1 counters to cast larger creatures. Everything in the deck should be focused on those two goals.

Setting up the deck to achieve this purpose will make it efficient and powerful. All cards should therefore do one of the following:

  1. Ramp up to Animar.

  2. Protect Animar.

  3. Place counters on Animar.

  4. Cast game ending creatures for cheap or free.

  5. Draw cards to allow us to do 1 through 4.

Priority should be given to cards that does something now > does something before your next turn > does something on your next turn > does something eventually.

Because Animar offers a discount based on creatures played, the deck shouldn't be filled with only high cmc game enders, but creatures from low to high cmc, preferably with as little colored mana symbols as possible, to give the deck a natural progression to casting free or cheap high cmc game ending creatures.

Let's split the deck into 3 parts. Pre-Animar setup, Post-Animar setup, Finale.

Note that $: (0 to 0.99), $$: (1.00 to 4.99), $$$: (5.00 to 9.99), $$$$: (10.00 to 19.99), !$!: (20.00+)

Unnecessary on a computer, very helpful on a phone.

This section will be all ramp, and protection to get Animar out quickly and make sure he is secure.

- The land base should be arranged to where there is more emphasis on , then , then since can color fix and can offer protection.

- Exotic Orchard is pretty good and cheap and can usually offer every color in multiplayer, especially if an opponent has a Command Tower out or even a Vivid Grove without even needing charge counters. - Kazoo lands such as Simic Growth Chamber, Izzet Boilerworks, and Gruul Turf are good in casual EDH where there is lack of land destruction and they artifically increase your deck ammount by posing as two lands in one. Though overall you do not want too many tap lands as you'll constantly be a entire turn behind.

Slayroth on Gishath Enrage Dino Tribal

Soooo etwas verspätet aber hier jetzt mein Senf zu deinem Deck:

mir fallen genau 3 Sachen auf zu denen ich gern was sagen würde:

1. Manabase

Ist dir sicher auch klar dass die nicht optimal ist, und du willst sicher auch kein Vermögen in sowas "langweiliges" wie Länder stecken, aber am Ende ist es die manabase die das tempo deines Deck ausmacht, und du hattest ja schon des öfteren Züge wo du einfach Dinge nicht tun konntest weil die X gefehlt hat. Der Punkt ist aber, du kannst eine Solide manabase bauen auch ohne nen vermögen auszugeben (Schok und Fetchländer müssen nicht sein) gerade bei nem 3 farbigen Deck kannst du noch relativ günstig wegkommen und trotzdem effektiv sein. Der entscheidenede Satz ist hier jedoch "enteres the battleflied tapped"! Diesen Satz solltest du unbedingt so gut es geht vermeiden, außer das land hat noch nen extra Effekt den du auf jeden Fall spielen willst.

Blossoming Sands Boros Guildgate Rugged Highlands Stone Quarry Wind-Scarred Crag Vivid Crag Vivid Grove Vivid Meadow

Die würde ich alle rauspacken und nach alternativen schauen. Tapped Länder sind einfach nen viel zu großer Nachteil, selbst Standardländer sind in den meisten Fällen besser als die obigen. Die einzigen die IMO noch klargehen sind Jungle Shrine, weil das dir alle 3 Farben ohne einschränkungen gibt (nicht wie bei den Vivids z.B) und Path of Ancestry weild er Scryeffekt einfach sehr stark ist.

Dual-Länder die du spielen solltest:

Checklands: Rootbound Crag, Sunpetal Grove,Clifftop Retreat (Besitzt du schon alle 3)

Painlands: Karplusan Forest,Brushland,Battlefield Forge

Battlelands: Cinder Glade, Canopy Vista

Bondlands: Spire Garden ,Bountiful Promenade

Cycle-Duallands: Sheltered Thicket, Scattered Groves (Die beiden sind die Ausnahme zur tappregel, aber die Option es wegzucaceln ist sehr stark, weil das land dann im Endgame kein toter Draw ist wenn du eigentlich kein mana mehr brauchst)

Wenn du die hast kannst du dann irgendwann man darüber nachdenken dir die Schokländer zu gönnen. Die Kosten jetzt auch kein Vermögen im vergleich zu den Fetches. Ich glaube das teuerste ist das rot/grüne mit 10 Euro

Ansonsten sind das ohne die Schoks 12 Dualländer und mit Schocks 15. Den Rest (übrigens würde ich die raten etwas mehr Länder zu spielen, mind 36, da du durch die Dinos eine allgemein sehr hohe manakurve hast) würde ich dann mit basics und den Utillytyländern (graue) und Goldländern (5-farbige wie Command tower) füllen. Dabei würde ich dir gern noch 3 Stück zeigen die du vielleicht noch nicht kennst und die guty Synergien mit deinem Commander hätten:

Kessig Wolf Run Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion Slayers' Stronghold

Rest je nach Manakosten deines Decks mit unterschiedlicher Anzahl an Plains, Forests und Mountains füllen. Dann hast du ne solide manabase, die kein Vermögen kostet und trotzdem schnell ist. tapped länder sind Gift, vor allem in nem Ramp Deck wie deins eig eins sein soll.... was mich zu Punkt führt.

2. Ramp

Du brauchst unbedingt mehr und vor allem besseren Ramp in meinen Augen. Der ganze Sinn deines Decks ist es möglichst schnell deinen Commander zu spielen und zu eskalieren oder schnell das Board mit Enrage Stuff zu füllen. Aber all das ist verdammt teuer, und deshalb brauchst du unmengen an Ramp. Scheiß auf die ersten paar Züge, da macht eh kaum einer was das in Richtung angreifen geht. Ich denke die richrig guten Ramp Spells kennst du vielleicht noch gar nicht weil überall nur "Kodamas Reach" und "Cultivate" geschriehen wird. Aber schau dir mal folgende an: Skyshroud Claim und Nature's Lore bringen Wälder ungetappt!!! ins Spiel. Insane Ramp, spiele ich auch im Sliver Deck jetzt, Explosive Vegetation und Rampant Growth und Farseek nicht ganz so stark wie die oberen beiden da das mana getapepd kommt, dafür kannst du aber auch Plains und Mountains holen. Der Vorteil gegenüber Kodamas Reach und Cultivate (welche übrigens nicht schlecht sind! Will nicht sagen dass due die kicken sollst, das sind eher ergänzungsmöglichkeiten) ist dass sie entweder 1 billliger sind oder 1 mana mehr direkt aufs Feld bringen. In der hand nützt dir das Land erstmal nichts. Aus dem grund würde ich auch Seek the Horizon raushauen. Das ist kein richtiger Rampspell. Ein weiterer guter Spell ist Traverse the Outlands welcher dir gerne mal 5-8 Länder aus deinem Deck holt wenn du schon nen fetten Dino auf dem Feld hast. das ist dann zu meinen krasser ramp und zum anderen dünnt es dein Deck aus, wodurch die Fähigkeit deines Commanders häufiger auf Dinos trifft.

Ein weiterer Punkt bezüglich Ramp ist noch eine Sache die du dir vor Augen halten solltest: Du spielst Mirari's Wake und Zendikar Resurgent in deinem Deck, welche beide Mana von deinen Ländern verdoppeln. Im gleichen Atemzug spielst du aber Ramp in Form von Artefakten (Darsteel Ingot, Commanders Sphere etc.) welcher davon nicht profitiert. Ich denke es ist eine Überlegung Wert nur aufgrund dieser beiden Karten den Artefaktramp zu cutten und voll auf Landramp durch sorceries zu setzen (außer Sol-Ring....because broken).

3. Artefakt removal

ich finde du bist hier etwas zu stark reingegangen ehrlich gesagt. Du spielst mit Rain of Thorns,Aura Shards, Return to Dust, und Sylvan Reclamation 4 sehr teure und/oder Situationsbedingte Artefaktremovals während du gleichzeitig noch Beast Within mit dieser Option hast. Ich kann mich auch irren aber ich glaube das könnte etwas übertrieben sein. Du hattest bestimmt schon öfter die Situation wo du eine dieser Karten einfach nur gespielt hast weil sie seit Runden auf der hand war und du einfach nichts besseres machen konntest. Falls das der Fall ist solltest du drüber nachdenken hier etwas abzuspecken, entweder in der Anzahl oder den Manakosten. Und Selbst wenn du es bei 4 Stück belassen willst solltest du auf jeden Fall nicht auf Vandalblast verzichten. Die muss einfach in jedes rote Deck, da gibts eigentlich gar keine Diskussion, die Karte ist einfach strikt besser als alle 4 die du im Deck hast. 2 weitere Karten die ich dir als alternativen ans Herz legen würde: Hull Breach (nur 2 mana und zerschießt 2 Sachen, einfach viel effektiver als die 5 mana spells) und Decimate (viel! mehr value als die 3 5-mana spells die du aktuell spielst für nur 4 Mana, und du zerschießt einfach 4 Sachen auf einmal). Ich persänlich würde die beiden zusammen mit Vandalblast spielen und die 3 5er Spells cutten, das senkt dann auch die Durchschnittlichen manakosten deiens Decks. Was Aura Shards angeht, ist debattierbar. Meine rster gedanke ist, dass deine Dinos idr zu teuer sind um die effektiv zu nutzen, allerding triggert die karte auch vonm Effekt deines Commanders. schwierig, aber imo würde sie eh besser in dein katzendeck passen, weil die Kreaturen da allgemein billiger sind ^^

So das war erstmal alles, vieleicht änderst du ja das ein oder andere, bin gespannt :D Was den Rest deiens Deck angeht will ich nix zu sagen, die Auswahl der Dinos/Verzauberungen/Artefakte/Synergien etc. machen dein Deck aus und geben ihm die pesönliche Note, da will ich dir nicht reinpfuschen. :D
