Vryn Wingmare Discussion

SideBae on Karametra "Goodstuff"/Land-Matters

First thing I suggest is Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip. You have a LOT of creatures, and I like that you're running the whole host of mana-dorks. Rites lets you get even more mana, and serves as an affordable Gaea's Cradle .

I don't think Sapseep Forest is better than a simple basic. Coming in tapped is a big drawback, and 1 life is rarely very relevant in EDH. To a lesser extent, you may find Mistveil Plains to be worse than a basic as well. Mistveil is typically limited to Captain Sisay or other tutor-on-a-stick decks as a means of recursion, but in this deck it seems it won't give you enough bang for your buck. Perhaps you might consider running Drownyard Temple instead? It works well with your Dust Bowl and gives you a good outlet for excess mana.

I see Knight of Autumn is in your 'Maybeboard.' I recommend playing this card. You should generally have access to white mana, so it serves as a better Reclamation Sage .

I recommend running Green Sun's Zenith in conjunction with Dryad Arbor . The arbor on its own isn't very good -- it is effected by summoning sickness and feels bad to play as a land for turn. But Green Sun's for 0 on turn one is excellent. Additionally, later in the game Green Sun's can act as a tutor for your Reclamation Sage or Knight of Autumn to deal with a pesky artifact or enchantment.

Green-White has access to a lot of nice hatebears. I suggest Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , though that one may be a little pricey. Vryn Wingmare and Glowrider are far more affordable and only a little worse. You have a LOT of mana, so taxing non-creature spells isn't too bad for you. Also, your general is a creature on the stack, so it's not an issue with casting her. Aven Mindcensor also comes to mind, but it depends on how search-heavy your meta is.

For planeswalkers, Nissa, Vital Force is a good choice in landfall decks. Being able to cantrip lands is... good. Similarly, Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip is powerful in decks with a high concentration of lands, though I recommend Vital Force much more.

For finishers, you might consider Overrun or Craterhoof Behemoth . They make your dorks into fatties, and let you swing in hard. Craterhoof is expensive these days, but pairing him with Natural Order is a Legacy Elves play that works great in EDH too. Triumph of the Hordes is another candidate for the finisher slot.

Swords to Plowshares is one of the only 1-1s I recommend in EDH. Because it is so efficient, I think it can be played even in a format typically played with 3 opponents. I do NOT recommend Path to Exile , as ramping an opponent is especially dangerous in EDH.

Card draw is always important in EDH. Because you're running so many creatures, Grim Flowering or Nature's Resurgence seem powerful inclusions, similar to the Shamanic Revelation you already run. After a board wipe, they may well draw you 7+ cards. Also, Slate of Ancestry is a boss.

Good luck with deck building!

SynergyBuild on Creating a Stax Ban List

1 week ago

First, what do you mean be stax?

There are tons of types. Often, it is in reference to a few, but there are tons.

Land destruction/land hate is a common type, but it is massive in scale is style:

Ravages of War , Armageddon , Ruination , Winter Orb , Back to Basics , Impending Disaster , Wildfire , Myojin of Infinite Rage , Decree of Annihilation , Cataclysm , Jokulhaups , Tectonic Break , Obliterate , etc.

This bleeds into more blurry lines, like Boil , which isn't necessarily land hate, but is color hate, or Blood Moon / Contamination , which are considered stax too.

Tax effects are plentiful too, Trinisphere , Nether Void , Sphere of Resistance , etc. are often considered staxy, Grand Arbiter Augustin IV , Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Vryn Wingmare , Glowrider , Thorn of Amethyst etc. are taxing, but so are Pendrell Mists , Magus of the Tabernacle , The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale , Kataki, War's Wage , etc. count too.

Even color hate like High Seas can count in that department, etc.


Point is, I've barely scratched the surface of the basic stax cards, not to mention synergies like Brago, King Eternal with Rishadan Cutpurse , etc.

I don't think you can ban stax.

Hey, nice budget deck. Budget cards to consider adding that can be repeatable sources of life gain or be value when you gain life are helpful especially if they trigger when your opponents play cards:

Cards to consider cutting are some that only give you a one time effect or they're not worth the mana cost:

  • Reviving Dose
  • Intervention Pact
  • Isolate
  • Sinkhole
  • Altar's Reap
  • Vizkopa Confessor
  • Seal of Cleansing
  • Consume the Meek
  • Slaughter the Strong

You mentioned switching to Kambal as Commander. I think this is a good idea; Kambal is underrated in multiplayer Commander. He effects any opponent when one them casts a noncreature spell that's powerful when you have three opponents. Even if you don't switch I would play Kambal in any Orzhov deck you make. Obzedat can be a singleton in Kambal, but I don't know if you even need him because his mana cost is difficult when playing 28 basic lands and not much color fixing such as Chromatic Lantern .

All my card suggestions can work just as well in a deck with Kambal as Commander. With Kambal as Commander you could combine life gain/budget stax/hate bears. Obviously these strategy will change your deck a lot, but it's worth testing. Budget cards to consider:

Thanks for the help, GhostChieftain!

Dance of the Dead is on the "pricier" side, but you're right - a 2 mana enchantment that reanimates is too good to pass up, especially in this deck. I'll try and work it into the cost.

I've never played with sac outlets like Viscera Seer and Carrion Feeder ... do you think they're vital to a deck like this? What is their primary use case?

I'll look into adding some land auras. Do you think I should run those over cards like Rampant Growth and Cultivate ? And after looking at your list I'm considering these cards (around $1):

Greater Good (ok, it's more than $1 but it's too good)
Vryn Wingmare
Razaketh, the Foulblooded (I have an extra copy)
Qasali Pridemage
Phyrexian Revoker
Phyrexian Delver
Lotleth Troll
Caustic Caterpillar
Aven Mindcensor

Again, I appreciate the help!

CyborgAeon on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

As somebody who plays a more relaxed Trostani casual deck, I agree that she can be played/built well. But her only relevant ability comes from populating; the lifegain is negligible.

When you boil it down - it's possible to make a horde of Vryn Wingmare via Seance / lock out all noncreature spells via Archon of Valor's Reach . Despite this, her ability to be relevant is vastly overshadowed by Rhys the Redeemed who is more cost efficient and effective at achieving the same goals.
