Wooded Bastion does not create green mana on turn 1, which is when you need green mana. You want Temple Garden instead, which can also be fetched by Windswept Heath .

Be aware that Hushwing Gryff is a nonbo with Iona, Shield of Emeria .

Gilded Lotus is too slow to really be good, I think, and you don't need the mana fixing from it.

Oblivion Ring is slightly better than Banishing Light since it actually exiles the target permanent, even if they have enchantment removal ready, so you can use it to get rid of tokens and auras on the target.

I don't like Light from Within , you want to cast an angel with 4 mana, not an enchantment.

Leyline of Sanctity is more commonly a sideboard card, and Privileged Position is only really good if you play in a meta with a lot of spot-removal.

Path to Exile on the other hand is an excellent removal card that I think you'd want in the mainboard rather than the side.

I'd take Journey to Nowhere over Pacifism , there are a lot of creatures who hurt you just by being on the battlefield without attacking or blocking anyone. Luminarch Ascension seems like a card that's good in multiplayer where you have a lot of opponents' end phases for it to trigger in and a propensity for stale mates, so if you're playing that way a lot it's a good card. In normal matchups, though, I don't see it doing much for you. Instead of Ghostly Prison , I'd bring in Archangel of Tithes , she's a bit more expensive for you and not as expensive for your opponent, but she's more versatile and comes with a 3/5 body which can really do wonders.

Darksteel Citadel doesn't seem to do a whole lot of good for you, and the occasional life-gain from Seraph Sanctuary is really also something you need to have a payoff for for it to be worth it. Maybe just get some extra plains, or you could get Eiganjo Castle or Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers . You also seem to have rather more forests than I'd really recommend, but good dual lands are expensive, so I get you :) If you can afford them, I recommend Temple Garden , Horizon Canopy , Windswept Heath , Razorverge Thicket and Wooded Bastion .

Shaman of Forgotten Ways seems way too expensive, I'd get Birds of Paradise or more Noble Hierarch s if you can afford it, otherwise Avacyn's Pilgrim , Beastcaller Savant or Bloom Tender can do good work too. I'm also not sure what Kytheon's Irregulars ' role in your deck is, again let me recommend Archangel of Tithes , or alternatively Angel of Jubilation , Shalai, Voice of Plenty , or Indomitable Archangel or Gisela, the Broken Blade . Baneslayer Angel is a fine card, but unless you're facing demons and dragons regularly, Lyra Dawnbringer is probably better. Her ability to be a lord for other angels is really nice.

Iona, Shield of Emeria and Avacyn, Angel of Hope are super powerful bombs, but I'm not sure you have enough ramp to play them consistently. Of course, you know your local meta better than I do, so you be the judge of that yourself :) I'd recommend thinking about dropping them, though.

And last, a shameless plug. I've been playing with an angel deck of my own at my local FNM and been doing OK, it's been mono-white, white-green-red and is now just white-green. You can check the latest iteration here if you're looking for a somewhat different take on this whole business: Noble Angels

It's an easy fix to run Eldrazi Displacer. Just swap out a few lands for some Brushland or Wooded Bastion.

Hey, saw you were looking for help on reddit and thought I could make some suggestions. First off, I think cards like survival of the fittest and Rest in Piece would be good, though it is a non-bo with e-wit and Regrowth(a strictly better Recollect) type effects. If you are facing a lot of graveyard based decks in your meta it could be a good call though, (since you mentioned gitrog specifically and they cannot win through it). I would recommend replacing Krosan Grip with Nature's Claim as it just is way easier to cast overall. It will allow you to develop your board as well as hold removal. I would play Grim Monolith over basalt monolith if you can and I would also recommend Sunpetal Grove Brushland and Wooded Bastion for lands. I don't think Mana Tithe is worth a slot either personally, because despite the fact the many cedh decks can be really fast, having them pay just 1 extra can be kind of inconsistent. I think Fall of the Thran is just a worse Armageddon if that is what you are looking for, but I'm not sure that is worth it either, I might just recommend Winter Orb due to the similar effect but it can come down significantly earlier. Authority of the Consuls seems weak in most cases unless you are in a splintertwin/kikijiki heavy meta. For cards I would recommend for good includes in general would be Eladamri's Call, Sensei's Divining Top, Selesnya Signet, Shalai, Voice of Plenty(good against people trying to kill you with a targeted spell Tendrils of Agony, Walking Ballista, Stroke of Genius ect...), Gaddock Teeg(very good against Ad Nauseam one of the most played cedh cards), Saffi Eriksdotter for protection on sisay and added combos, Mother of Runes for protection as well and there are probably some other things, but i think that's a good start. Overall though, the deck looks solid, and I think these cards could help.

I have not seen the deck either but I saw someone use Mana Reflection and Cascading Cataracts to make . Those cards are so good together. So are all the filter lands. Like Wooded Bastion it taps for or or but with Mana Reflection it taps for or or . Just a really good few cards I recommend. Also any other land that produces 2 or more mana is good with the reflection. Scorched Ruins taps for but with the reflection its but I wouldn't recommend Scorched Ruins or Lotus Vale.

there a elf that does the Chromatic Lantern effect to I forget its name.

Hey, looks good, looks fun.

Consider adding these cards:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Colossus of Akros
  • Emrakul, the Promised End
  • Nylea, God of the Hunt
  • Primordial Hydra
  • Ulvenwald Hydra
  • Brutalizer Exarch
  • Collected Company
  • Eerie Interlude
  • Panharmonicon
  • Boundless Realms
  • Primal Surge
  • Rout
  • Release the Gremlins
  • Boros Garrison

Consider these cards to make the deck more competitive:

Rack is busted with Mayael. You can repeatedly use cards in your hand to set-up the top of your library so when you look at the top five with Mayael you'll always have a creature to cheat into play. Sneak is excellent as an alternative way to cheat big creatures onto the battlefield while giving them haste. The Eldrazi: Kozilek and Ulamog are among the biggest and best creatures to cheat into play. Annihilator is busted with haste and when these Eldrazi/Blightsteel are sac EOT they go back into your library.

Competitive Commander manabases use Fetch lands. They're especially good with three, four and five color decks because they give you so many choices of lands since they can tutor for dual lands. ETB tapped lands are not what you want to play when being competitive. You want all your lands to ETB untapped so you can use the mana they provide the turn you play them otherwise you'll get too far behind, not able to cast spells. Consider these lands for a more competitive manabase: Fetch lands, Shock lands (already have them), Battle lands (already have them), Battlebond lands, Filter lands, Check lands, Rainbow lands?

Fetch lands:

Battlebond Lands:

Filter Lands:

Rainbow Lands:

Other Lands:

Consider this more competitive manabase example:

  • Ancient Tomb
  • Arid Mesa
  • Bloodstained Mire
  • Bountiful Promenade
  • Canopy Vista
  • Cinder Glade
  • Clifftop Retreat
  • Command Tower
  • Fire-Lit Thicket
  • Flooded Strand
  • Homeward Path
  • Mana Confluence
  • Kessig Wolf Run
  • City of Brass
  • Reflecting Pool
  • Rootbound Crag
  • Rugged Prairie
  • Sacred Foundry
  • Spire Garden
  • Stomping Ground
  • Sunpetal Grove
  • Temple Garden
  • Reliquary Tower
  • Windswept Heath
  • Wooded Bastion
  • Wooded Foothills
  • Yavimaya Hollow
  • 5 Forest
  • 2 Plains
  • 1 Mountain

Good luck with your deck.


vasarto77 on Masterworks, invocations to collect?

7 months ago

I just noticed that the Ornithropter jumped from the $15.00 it was a couple months ago to Just under $100.00. I am KICKING myself for not getting those because I really REALLY wanted them for a deck idea I had, and just wanted them because I thought they looked neat.

Now I just traded a crap ton of stuff in my store to acquire the Wurmcoil Engine and the Wooded Bastion that it had to go with my Engineered Explosives masterwork which was the one and only special card I was ever able to pull from those packs.

So, is there any lower cost cards that you guys think might be good choices to pick up? Sol Ring is out of the question. If that ever increases in value it is gonna max around 400 tops. I can never imagine, even in 10 years that card being worth more than that.

Squirrelbacon on Selesnya Token Deck W/Black

I like the idea of the deck, much more creature focused than I think I've ever seen tokens. Just a few questions/point of concern (and I know this is more a for fun deck, but still)

Wooded Bastion/Fetid Heath--> I understand maybe having one Wooded Bastion, but these are probably served better as the check lands or even fast lands. By themselves, they're basically Wastes and not that it's super relevant they get hosed by Damping Sphere.

Westvale Abbey  Flip--> In a world of Assassin's Trophy, having a card that is slow and you have to dump into just to have it blown up with the flip trigger on the stack feels...miserable.

Spot Removal--> You're w/o trophy? I'm not saying jam 4, but I'd cut one Path and one Might Shove out for 2. That is, if you want to run 8 pieces.

Scion of Vitu-Ghazi--> Why?
