Description

Since C16 brought us the magnificent and affordable Rebecca basic lands, I decided to pay tribute to my favorite Magic and Fantasy artist of all time with a deck. This deck was made for casual fun play and should be viewed as such. The deck have an anti-blue, fog effects and enchantress subtheme. Guidelines for construction of the deck were:

  • Chosen General is Asmira, Holy Avenger that gives the GW color identity just enough cards to make the deck possible.

  • All cards must have Rebecca Guay Art, so no fetch, shock, guild, only Plains and Forest from c16 as manabase.

  • Cards that were printed only as promo with rebecca guay art also count but the promo version must be used(E.g Path to Exile and Serra Angel).

  • Printings with old card frames were prefered if there's the possibility (E.g Auramancer vs Auramancer ). I think the old frame combines more with her art, although all cards are beautiful.

I Will playtest soon and will keep this post updated with eventual tweeks.

Any sugestions are welcome, just be aware of the Guidelines (No Bitterblossom :( ).

Fun Fact Wood Elves Have 2 Printings with different Rebecca Guay Art! So I'm putting the other version in the maybeboard but I want to see if my playgroup is OK with me using the 2 versions :D

-P.S. Brewing this deck made me love Rebecca Guay and her art even more. You can visit more of her incredible work at http://www.rebeccaguay.com/

Updates

Moved Hush and Resuscitate to the maybeboard and added 2 forests

I have to say that creating an artist style deck is a unique idea to me! It definitely is very pretty to look at how all the art kind of sinks together to be appealing. Neat idea! +1

Though not my favorite idea, getting to about 37-40 lands is probably safer for functionality reasons of commander has a cruel way of going total mana dry no matter how many mulligans you take. Though not sure functionality is really important for a deck like this, might detract a bit actually.

Optimator Wayne Reynolds is nice! You can make one using Tariel, Reckoner of Souls or Rafiq of the Many, the pool of cards is big including planeswalkers! If you make it I want to see!

ZaneOlric3 - Indeed, I was a little greedy with the manabase because of the average CMC, but I will look into adding more lands. It's so hard to cut cards so beautiful. I've been thinking in creating a Terese Nielsen deck using Sydri, Galvanic Genius Next.

OMG OMG OMG, she has lands now?! I have a Rebecca EDH deck as well, but just went with whatever lands I could put in there. Might need to revisit :)

Freewind Equenaut seemed strong with Samite Blessing and Nature's Chosen.

Very nice. Always lovely to see a tableful of her art.

I did something similar in a non-EDH deck: Rebecca Guay Theme Deck
