Byuante Deckling

Hi! Name's Byuante. (Buu-au-nte)

Been playing since Shards of Alara, got into Commander a bit after that. I prefer Commander and Modern over other formats. I love Golgari and Orzhov.

That's about all you need to know :)

Current Deck:

Said on Angels...


Angels tend to be expensive. Look at all the angels you control. If their power and toughness + their ability do not equal (In your mind) their cost, I could cut it.

Take a card like Luminous Angel, a 4/4 flyer for 7 mana that creates 1 token on your upkeep is quite useless unless you are in a stax heavy meta, or have more token generators.

That's gonna go to maybe. It's incredibly expensive, but it helps cheat in 2 creatures which can be game ending (Avacyn and Empyrial for example). A tought choice, if I were to add it, do you have any suggestion on what to remove to make room for it, Enral?

Well its really good with Green Sun's Zenith, cast it for x = 0, fetch arbor, turn 1 two lands.(Don't know if you figured it out, but it taps for mana...)

August 14, 2017 4:08 p.m.

36 total lands. Also, Temple of the False God & Dryad Arbor

August 14, 2017 2:13 p.m.

Also, cough cough, Eldrazi Conscription

Eldrazi... the bane of all that is Wizard!

You may wanna focus on less mana ramp and more on cost reduction.

Urza's Incubator or Heralds Horn or Sisay's Ring

I also think you may wanna reduce the non Eldrazi creatures, but that is just for flavour

Tornado Elemental, Multani, Maro-Sorcerer,Engulfing Slagwurm, etc,etc

As for ratios, since you run a ton of ramp, I think 36 lands should suffice. I think 34 creatures is more than enough, and the other 29 cards should be removal,extra ramp, and other effects.

Need help figuring out which cards from C17 to implement and which cards they should replace, but suggesting other cards is okay as well, but please check the updates the decks had to make sure you don't suggest something already suggested. If you suggest a card, please suggest a card for it to replace, and if you could provide some sort of explanation why.

Said on Life & Death: ......


Deepstriker29, this deck contains 11 cards that either draw or tutor for cards, most of which draw a butt ton at once, which has proved time and again to be sufficient to keep the deck chugging along (This deck had 12, but the 12th was removed due to its major downside in this deck, that card being Dark Prophecy). Soul of the Harvest is a slightly worst Harvester of Souls, as it triggers only when I play creatures, while Harvester will trigger upon any nontoken creature dying, mine or my enemies.

I don't like the sorcery speed card draws you suggested as they have their statutes of limitation. A card like Inspiring Call, which is an instant, does something similar to Rishkar's Expertise but the biggest difference is that Call has a far less chance of decking me than rishkar's expertise. This deck goes crazy quickly, and once it starts, without having instant speed cards to draw with, a card like Expertise could only be played before it useful, or after its too late. Mazirek grows to be around 60/60, Mycoloth about 80/80, which makes the Expertise a threat to me as it will deck me at that point, but with call I can respond to his trigger to make the most use of the draw.

Grave Titan used to be in here, cut him for Ophiomancer due to how synergistic she is with Ashnod's Altar and Dictate of Erebos, along with others.

Thanks for your suggestions.

Fractured Identity. Since you have the Crawler, I'd suggest more card draw Temple Bell, Howling Mine, Rhystic Study, or heck, Mystic Remora

Or to try to abuse rebound, Serum Visions, Brainstorm, Ponder, & Gitaxian Probe

August 8, 2017 9:49 p.m.

Path of Ancestry, Herald's Horn, & Kindred Discovery should be added, as they are incredibly powerful, when they come out.

August 8, 2017 9:39 p.m.

Your mana curve is far higher than your amount of lands can account for. I would consider adding more lands until you have around 38 or so. Is this a budget deck? If it's not, please consider

Cavern of Souls,Badlands,Underground Sea,Volcanic Island,Blood Crypt,Watery Grave,Steam Vents,Most Fetches, and Bojuka Bog. If you were to add these, either consider removing the bounce lands or add Amulet of Vigor to try to counteract the "enters tapped" clause.

Patriarch's Bidding seems under utilised here, try adding Entomb or Buried Alive to try and "cheat" in some big guys, you could also try Reanimate or Exhume.

I'd consider removing all 12 Shadowborn Apostles, as there are other ways to cheat things in like Omniscience or As Foretold, or, my favourite, Demon of Death's Gate

If you'd want some more "tribal" ideas, you could look through Angelic Devotion.

Looking for good suggestions. Trying to keep the average CMC as low as possible while still keeping the deck efficient at its job. If you suggest something, please suggest what to replace and if you could, provide some sort of explanation about why you think that suggestion would improve the deck/why I should remove the card you say I should.
