Bant Creature Tutors

Commander Deck Help forum

Posted on Oct. 29, 2018, 9:09 p.m. by Kitsune_18

Hi all! Space is tight in my Jenara deck and I'm trying to limit the number of creature tutors that I'm running. I've committed to running Eladamri's Call, Birthing Pod, Survival of the Fittest, and Recruiter of the Guard. I've got two more slots to fill and I'm debating between, Green Sun's Zenith, Chord of Calling, Wargate, and Eldritch Evolution.

Which, in your opinion, is the best/most well-rounded combination to fill the last 2 slots? Cheers!

Green Sun's is a shoe-in, but since you probably also want things that can hit non-green creatures, I'd suggest Worldly Tutor or Chord, as neither is mana-restrictive (1 mana v convoke), and both hit whatever you need them to.

If you wanna go deep, go Sylvan Tutor. After that, you got some niche options such as Fauna Shaman(worse than she looks), Yisan, the Wanderer Bard(better than she looks), Protean Hulk, Natural Order, Tooth and Nail, Hibernation's End, Summoner's Pact, Woodland Bellower, Momir Vig, Simic Visionary, Bring to Light and Fierce Empath off the top of my head. I’ve played a lot of bant edh in my day haha. Best of luck

Oops... ignore my post. Didn’t finish reading yours lol. The answer completely depends on your decklist. GSZ is amazing but only works if you have targets that are important to your gameplan, specifically getting you ahead on board or winning. CoC works well with instant speed answers such as Mystic Snake. EE can be insane in the right deck, depending on the general, your tutor targets, and your meta (ie how many counterspells are around), and wargate is probably the worst of the bunch because of the speed and color requirement. But again, all of this depends on what your deck looks like and your unopposed, winning game plan.

Yeah suppose I should have given a little more context. My Green Sun's Zenith targets are pretty much Scavenging Ooze, Eternal Witness, Knight of Autumn, Rafiq of the Many, Acidic Slime, and Prime Speaker Zegana, as well as some ramp creatures I could grab if needed. I'd originally written off Wargate, but I noticed it seems to get a lot of love in some circles.
