Vizier of the Menagerie Discussion

AztecNoir on Dinosaur Rampage

In my Gishath deck I run Vizier of the Menagerie and Prowling Serpopard not exactly tribal but they help with getting your dinos out on the field. Helm of the Host is also good to have, whether attached to Gishath, Sun's Avatar or Etali, Primal Storm is always a fun time.

As for mana ramp I run the monuments from Amonkhet: Hazoret's Monument Oketra's Monument and Rhonas's Monument. Perhaps not the best, but at least they help reduce mana cost and Commander Tax.

There is also an argument to be made for Xenagos, God of Revels for all your Gishath trigger needs.

Ok the first thing Im noticing here is 34 non-creature spells. That's an absurdly high count for Animar and you want half that TOPS (I run 12 myself).

There should be 0 mana rocks (sol ring is debatable... I don't run it) and 0 Cultivate type cards here (Crop Rotation is ok if you have Gaea's Cradle tier lands to look up). Your mana fixing comes from mana dorks or creatures that search up lands, so just keep those and drop the rest. Vizier of the Menagerie should replace Chromatic Lantern. Also look into Cloud of Faeries and Peregrine Drake (Palinchron too if you can afford it).

Doubling Season should be Hardened Scales... you can do a LOT with the 4 mana you save and the effect is relevant earlier here.

You also need some draw power. Primordial Sage, Garruk's Packleader, Tishana, Voice of Thunder, and Glimpse of Nature are all good options here.

I could go on still but I'm just posting a link to my list for ideas. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

Your lands also need some tlc. First, get Command Tower and Ancient Ziggurat in here. Also consider Mana Confluence, City of Brass, Exotic Orchard, and Reflecting Pool. Vizier of the Menagerie is also great here for mana fixing.

Karn seems kinda out of place here, I understand he is your card advantage engine, however I think Vizier of the Menagerie or evenLifecrafter's Bestiary might be better includes for card advantage.

darksilver, thanks for the input man!!! Mill has kinda been my guilty pleasure since I started playing, so I do want to include it here as much as possible. I'm thinking about scavenging some more from my (Built) Lazav EDH deck, haven't looked into yet, but maybe some of the artifacts, and convert that mainly to control/shapeshifter. I should probably tell you, budget is a big thing, lol, otherwise Font of Fertility and Font of Fortunes wouldn't be making an appearance, the money cards are just ones I've picked up along the way. I actually picked up two Ravenous Chupacabra tonight, and one of them definitely made the switch you were suggesting. I am going to be switching Ramunap Excavator from my (Built) Jarad EDH deck to this for sure, and throw in Burgeoning as well (what are your thoughts on that?). I like Llanowar Scout because it does let me play extra lands, but are you thinking I have too many of these instances? Like with Courser of Kruphix? Or is scout just too weak for that still? The reason I am playing Courser is twofold, he is an enchantment creature, and I tried to get as many permanents with multiple types in here so I would always be able to maximize my commander's ability, and he lets me play stuff out of my library just like Vizier of the Menagerie (which really gives me 3 places to play all told). Speaking of multiple types on permanents, that's the same logic behind Etherium Sculptor and Kruphix, God of Horizons, although secondary to multiple types is that the sculptor can make some of my artifacts free (and I think I will be adding more now, like Horn of Greed which I just got, and whatever milling I decide to do) and Kruphix can net me a lot of mana over time, which man, I know I have an artifact that has X mill in it... But... what do you think of those two still? I guess let me find the other stuff and then see... I need to get a few Perpetual Timepiece for like three or four decks, but as of now I don't have any. On that note, I think I might take out Mirror-Mad Phantasm because you are right about him milling me out, I just wanted to use him so bad; what do you think? I kinda like Death's Approach in here because more targeted removal without qualifiers is nice, it gets around indestructible, only costs one mana, and it's an enchantment so it gives me more options there. That all being said I think I am going to put in Fleshbag Marauder since I pulled him from a pack tonight (literally no shop has had a version of him the past week), and after that are you still not liking approach? Also, no Shriekmaw has I sadly. Your comment about lack of instant speed interaction does strike a chord within me... might look into throwing in Alchemist's Refuge, though my Kumena deck will be sorry to see it go, lol. I do believe I am going to find a way to fit in Secrets of the Dead, because my hand needs to have cards as well, probably, and that's so awesome I wish I had thought of it before. As for Cyclonic Rift, and Beast Within... I really didn't want to move away from the permanent theme (also... I do not own a Rift, please do not doubt my seriousness as a commander player, lol), but I might actually be adding something I picked up today in the $.50 bin, Realms Uncharted. After looking over this again with your words, and some new thoughts, in my mind these are the cards I'm for sure going to be pulling: Villainous Wealth and Shambling Shell, those are just the for sure ones though. I think I might invest more into the creatures... sigh, part of me wants to bring over my Lord of Extinction, but it makes Jarad really. Thanks again though!!! And have I changed your mind any? I do know you may want to wait until I have made more chnages, but seeing it through your eyes has helped a lot already.
