pie chart Bant Highlander (Not EDH)

Commander / EDH



Basically a Bant Highlander deck. Converted from a Rafiq of the Many EDH deck. A few synergies are present including: Gifts Ungiven for Life from the Loam, Wasteland, and Strip Mine; Sovereigns of Lost Alara an Eldrazi Conscription; as well as an Academy Ruins/Mindslaver lock. Basic equipment theme. Slightly midrange/aggro. The deck is based off a point system in which 7 points are allowed. The points present in this deck are: Gifts Ungiven - 2 Strip Mine - 2 Wasteland - 1 Life from the Loam - 1 Umezawa's Jitte - 1 Any suggestions would be great. Remember, this is a highlander deck, not an EDH deck, so it needs to be fast and competitive, and tailored for one vs. one play. Thanks!

Intuition for Life From the Loam, Wasteland and Strip Mine works fine too

Good point with Intuition. It's sadly worth one point on my league's list, so the only way I could add it is by removing Jitte. Something to consider, though!

In a bit of playtesting, I have noticed the mana is pretty rough. Often too slow or too colour-light. Any relatively budget friendly mana suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Original duals and a Hallowed Fountain/Breeding Pool are on my want list, but may take a bit of work to obtain.

If you can get your hands on the other 2 shocklands I'd strongly recommend Krosan Verge . Another option is card:Treva's Ruins. You could also consider Skyshroud Claim and Cultivate /card:Kodama's Reach or if you prefer creatures Sakura-Tribe Elder , Yavimaya Elder or Krosan Tusker (but that last one's a personal favourite and the last 2 don't ramp your mana)

And what about the painlands? Adarkar Wastes , Brushland & Yavimaya Coast .

I'd also replace Wooded Bastion with Mystic Gate , you play way more WW & UU than GG. Or play both :)

Great suggestions, misterQ. I was actually trying to pick up some painlands yesterday, but the trade fell through. I definitely like the idea of Elder (both) as they would still provide bodies to carry swords when not needed for their mana providing. Thanks!
