Wind-Scarred Crag Discussion
2 days ago
I have some minor suggestions not to your forces, but the mana you obtain. I am speechless to your powerhouse of creatures! I could never make an improvement off that. I am very satisfied that you run my favorite Eldrazi, Pathrazer of Ulamog. As for that mana.... I would recommend taking out Darksteel Ingot and Commander's Sphere for faster mana rocks like Fellwar Stone and Everflowing Chalice that cost 1 less to cast. I can see that your mana base is a little chunky too with those Scrylands and Wind-Scarred Crag. Why not run the three fetches of Arid Mesa, Windswept Heath, and Wooded Foothills? I think it would be helpful if you ran a Krosan Verge that is great in any Selesnya support. Yes, they enter tapped, but ramp is ramp. As for that Cavern of Souls.... What creature type do you usually like to select? It seems odd to have because I'd think a Kessig Wolf Run might be more beneficial with these giant creatures, but I tend not to worry a lot about my creatures being countered so that's just me.

Hey, my advice is to the try to decrease the avg cmc. Right now it's 4.0, this is too high because you want to have a some what established board state with Vamps before you cast Edgar from the Command Zone.
You're currently playing 9x six drops, this is too many because you already have your six drop play which is Edgar. Clogging up this spot on the mana curve takes away from being able to play Vamps before you want to cast Edgar.
Consider these five cards to cut to make 100 cards:
Continuing my advice, all I've suggested is to cut 4x six drops and 1x seven drop. This will decrease the avg cmc in return allow you to get more Vamps on the battlefield quicker.
You're using several cards in the sideboard that I consider premium cards with Edgar:
- Drana, Liberator of Malakir
- Gifted Aetherborn
- Indulgent Aristocrat
- Sorin, Lord of Innistrad
- Vampire Nocturnus
- Yahenni, Undying Partisan
If you have these cards I would add all of them to the main deck in place of five drops. 13x five drops is too many I would cut this to five or six this includes both Vamps and other spells. Five drops I would cut are:
- Fell the Mighty
- Increasing Ambition
- Crimson Honor Guard
- Liliana Vess
- Sanguine Bond
- Blood Baron of Vizkopa
- Bloodline Necromancer
One thing I see that might happen and can be frustrating when playing an aggressive deck in Commander is running out of gas. To prevent this I would include more draw. Mentor of the Meek, Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood. Menor is great even though he isn't a Vamp with the Vamp tokens from Edgar's eminence. Paying one mana to draw a card when a token is created. Take advantage of black spells which let you draw two cards for only two mana they're very good.
You're playing artifact ramp which is great especially when paying a Commander who costs six mana. Consider two drop artifact ramp instead of three drop? I suggest this because the three drop spot has the majority of Vamps and you want to play one of these Vamps not ramp at this stage of a game. The two drop spot has Vamps, but they are less powerful or plentiful as the three drop Vamps. Because of this you can use this opportunity in a game to cast some ramp. I suggest three Signets: Rakdos Signet, Boros Signet and Orzhov Signet. In fact I would cut the majority of non-Vamp three drop cards with the exceptions being draw and a couple of removal spells.
My advice for the manabase is you're much better off playing basic Swamps in place of a lot of the come into play tapped lands such as Wind-Scarred Crag and Orzhov Basilica. Black mana is very important here so much that I would limit the amount of red and white cards you play and really only use those two colors to cast Edgar, a few Vamps and a few removal spells, but only as a splash. Another option that's less budget is to play lands that can make any color of mana: Exotic Orchard, Forbidden Orchard, City of Brass, Reflecting Pool.
Here's a few more cards to consider adding. Most of these I consider upgrades to what you're already using:
Good luck with your deck.

Maybe drop a few lands for other cards. Do you have a budget? If so, can you give a rough estimate so we can know what to suggest and what not. I'd include some non-basics like Wind-Scarred Crag, Command Tower, Battlefield Forge, Temple of Triumph, and Rogue's Passage. You should be running about 37 lands, and 40 seems a little high. I'd also cut some of the worse equipment like Bone Saw, Dagger of the Worthy, Golem's Heart, Livewire Lash, Slagwurm Armor, the Monuments, and the equipment dealing with other creatures like Stoneforge Masterwork. Viridian Longbow and Welding Jar.
Some replacements and additional cuts would be Steelshaper's Gift, Sword of Feast and Famine, Armory Automaton, Auriok Windwalker, Brass Squire, Sigarda's Aid, and Leonin Shikari to name a few. EDHREC is a brilliant site for building EDH decks. Go to the Commanders > 2 Color > Boros, then scroll down to Akiri and Bruse. It has all these options, as well as many more, and links to different decks headed by the same commanders.

Since Shu Yun benefits from a lot of noncreature spells, some counter spells and exile effects would be useful. Enchantment and artifact removal like Forsake the Wordly and Solemn Judgment would be useful. Norn's Annex, Propaganda, and Ghostly Prison can make it harder for opponent's to swing at you. Counter spells like Swan Song, Essence Scatter, Rebuff the Wicked, Mana Tithe, and Countermand provide protection and the necessary control aspect you might be looking for. Other creatures with Prowess and similar effects would benefit from what you have in mind. Monastery Swiftspear, Pristine Skywise, Cunning Breezedancer, and Pyre Hound to name a few. The Ravnica bounce lands you will want to add would be Azorius Chancery, Izzet Boilerworks, Boros Garrison, and the tricolor land Mystic Monastery. You can also add the other dual lands, Tranquil Cove, Wind-Scarred Crag, Prairie Stream, Irrigated Farmland, Inspiring Vantage, and Spirebluff Canal. Some must have artifacts are Elixir of Immortality, Venser's Journal, Chromatic Lantern, Jeskai Banner, and Argentum Armor. Hope this helps!

I originally had those Soulfire's when they were like $10-$20, so now that the deck is very affordable, I think it would be great for an entry level deck. What I want to do to improve this deck is:
- 1x Blighted Cataract
- 1x Desert of the Fervent
- 1x Desert of the True
- 1x Searing Blood
- 2x Shock
- 2x Firebolt
- 1x Spellheart Chimera
- 1x Unsubstantiate
- 2x Reflector Mage

Needs more land, here are my suggestions:
It says you're at 101 cards so take Auriok Transfixer out.
I think those are the biggest ideas for now. Everything else had got some pretty solid potential, considering how low the budget price is.

Commander is certainly my favorite format!! I would be happy to give ya a few pointers for what it's worth!
One thing that I noticed off the bat is that you have lots of tapped lands! I think you will find that very annoying to you and even that you don't need quite so many dual lands in the deck. I would take out Inspiring Vantage and in stead put in Clifftop Retreat. As well, I think Hanweir Battlements does nothing for you but slow you down since your commander already gives haste. However, if you run Hanweir Garrison (which I think you should) then it might be worth leaving in!
Myriad Landscape, Needle Spires, Rugged Highlands, Scattered Groves, Sheltered Thicket, Blossoming Sands, Sunscorched Desert, Teetering Peaks and Wind-Scarred Crag could be taken out, I would throw in some more basic lands unless you feel like dropping a lot of money on a deck and get some expensive but good dual lands which don't enter tapped... but I don't think you will need those honestly.
I feel like currently the deck is all over the place! It needs a little focusing to where you want to go with this. Commander is much more fun when you focus on getting out fun combos or cards that pair well together!
I think what i'll do is tell you about some cards you don't need in here and then some cards that you should absolutely put in here, and then some directions you might want to go towards with the deck!
Ruric Thar, the Unbowed is a good card, but you are running too many non creature cards! He will hurt ya! (i built a commander deck with this guy as the commander. If you want to use him still, you can check out that deck for inspiration). Stop Hitting Yourself!
Zendikar Incarnate , Omnath, Locus of Rage and Mina and Denn, Wildborn are better for landfall decks, and won't be as much use outside of it. By the time you have 4 mana, you typically won't have more than one land card in hand at a time anyways, and if you just want the trample ability, there are much better cards out there for ya!
You can find better cards than Sylvan Reclamation for removal, depending on what you decide to do with the deck!
Wilderness Elemental is not particularly great.
Radha, Heir to Keld is not bad, but the two red mana empties from your mana pool after your combat phase ends. if you want to go for mana ramp and something similar, might i suggest Savage Ventmaw or Skyshroud Elf? Those two are similar but in different ways. The nice thing about skyshroud is that he can tap for green, red or white (since he taps for green and the second ability would allow you to use that green mana to turn it either red or white) and you can use it to filter your mana to the color you want (besides green). the mana produced by Savage Ventmaw doesn't deplete between phases.
Oversoul of Dusk while hybrid mana, is harder to cast in your 3 color deck and the card itself isn't necessarily that great. Green and white are very common colors in commander.Now Rubblebelt Raiders on the other hand.. might be worth it, and less mana intensive!
Odric, Lunarch Marshal gives all your creatures double strike and vigilance when you have your commander out.
Bastion Protector aslo pairs well with Odric.. all creatures you control get indestructible.
Odric, Master Tactician is also good for you no matter what direction you decide to go with the deck!Content goes here
I see this really going anywhere. Your commander is quite flexible!
- You could find some way to play with your commander's untap ability (with things like Intrepid Hero or Heartless Hidetsugu and other cool creature tap abilities). you could use Illusionist's Bracers to copy the untap effect when you pay the mana cost. Heck, you could untap her with that free untap. Creatures with tap abilities can tap the same turn they come out as long as you control your commander!
- You could build a token deck featuring things with "devour" creatures, Anointed Procession and Parallel Lives.
- you could focus on large creatures that you can cast to smash into opponents the same turn they come out.
That's about all I have for now.. decide what you want to do to focus the deck and I will be looking to give you ideas wherever you decide to go with this!

There are plenty of budget dual lands you can go with to improve your mana base: Boros Guildgate, Stone Quarry, Wind-Scarred Crag, and Boros Garrison are all common or uncommon, and cheap enough to add to the deck without breaking a budget. City of Brass is a popular staple for multicolor decks, and isn't too costly. Inspiring Vantage, Needle Spires, Ancient Amphitheater, Battlefield Forge, and Temple of Triumph all come in at well under $5 a piece, and most under $2. All would help you improve and balance out your mana base.
