Need help with land creature EDH
Posted on April 14, 2019, 6:03 p.m. by Stardragon
Im trying to make a deck based around land creatures like Inkmoth Nexus and Celestial Colonnade . However I'm have trouble think of color scheme and commander (though green is most likely the main color). Any thoughts or idea are welcome
Go 5 color with Child of Alara as the commander. Remember it has to go to the graveyard to trigger, so use reanimation effects or recursion like Memorial to Folly , Mortuary Mire , Volrath's Stronghold or Haunted Fengraf to reuse Child. Try to use indestructible cards or utility lands to get all of the effects you want, probably with cards that synergize with lands.

Why would i need reanimation and recursion? Child hits non land cards and my main creature force would still be lands

If you make your commander Tatyova, Benthic Druid , you can get Faerie Conclave , Treetop Village and Lumbering Falls . Then you could add all the colorless man-lands such as Mishra's Factory and Mutavault . I also use Sylvan Awakening in my version of the Tatyova deck myself.

Child of Alara was a good suggestion, and the reason you want reanimation and recursion is because other will play board wipes. You can focus your deck around getting rid of non-land permanents, your opponents will still have Damnation and Wrath of God .
Your land creatures will die, this is unavoidable. You need to plan for this, so recursion will be important. Along this theme, I imagine Crucible of Worlds should be an auto include.
You should probably look into ways to protect your lands. Living Plane and Nature's Revolt will turn all lands to creatures, so people will be less likely to board wipe. You can also lock the board with stuff like Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite . Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Elspeth, Knight-Errant can provide additional protection.

Why not Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper ? You commander makes your lands into threats even as you're casting spells to protect them. There are things like Terra Eternal and Sacred Ground that keep them in play, board wipes like Hour of Revelation and Planar Outburst kill everything but them. Blue White also lets you run counter magic to keep your opponents from wiping the board

thxs for all your help Im still building and tinkering but for now I'm doing Bant color with Angus Mackenzie as my commander for the moment both color and commander may change

I think are both next to required so Bant is a good choice. Good cards to include are Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Exploration , Oracle of Mul Daya , Burgeoning . can help you with card draw, and with Crucible of Worlds , you will have a vast amount of lands to play. You can use your hand and Graveyard to play a stupid amount of lands, ramping really hard, and giving you attackers.

Stardragon Child of Alara won't trigger if you don't send it to the yard. You can't command zone it if you do that.

I could see Lord Windgrace fitting well. Jund catches Green which will give you access to most of the cards mentioned above while also already being a "lands matter" commander, netting you plently of draw, ramp, and extra lands, along with an innate way of recovering your land creatures.

Genju of the Realm could be a fun card as well if you are in 5 colour. (but child of alara does get rid of the enchantment.
