First-Time Deck Builder, Looking For Suggestions

Commander Deck Help forum

Posted on March 22, 2019, 3:39 p.m. by CrimsonChaos

Hello everyone! As the title suggests, I'm new to the format and I've been spending the last couple weeks or so putting together my first deck, HeavenSent. I feel it's come a long way since it's humble beginnings, and I do have some ideas on possible upgrades in the Maybeboard. If things work out, I'm hoping to get my hands on a copy of Athreos, God of Passage and replace my current commanders Tymna the Weaver and Ravos, Soultender with that, taking out a card to keep the other two in the deck.

The others on my Maybeboard will take some time for me to track down or work into my budget, but I'd like to get some more experienced players' input on affordable things to consider adding, and perhaps what cards would be best to take out in exchange for upgrades. To be clear, I'm not looking to make this deck overly-competitive as I can only afford so much, but I would like to see it be able to hold its own with stronger decks. Thanks in advance!

Make lands about 1/3 of your deck have at least 2 board wipes 10 or more ramp. Deck get realy expensive becuase if a mana base. If you do not want to buy expensive board wipes or artifacts becuase your are on a budget there are replacements but if your going to be playing for a while buy the good cards

I've made some updates based on various recommendations over the weekend, though I'm still trying to track down a few cards to round things out. I have yet to play test my current setup, but I will be able to soon, and feel that things should be a fair amount smoother for me once I've gotten a bit of practice in. I appreciate the feedback!

Good board wipes are on a budget are Planar Cleansing and Fumigate . It looks like you want to have a sacrifice theme but I only saw 1 sac outlet. Maybe look into Viscera Seer and Ashnod's Altar . If you are interested check out the Command Zone podcast. They have some great casts on deckbuilding. Also, Tolarian Community College on YouTube is a great source of deckbuilding info. Have fun.
