Currently a "rarely goes onto tappedout" user on the site due to the change that made the ui hurt my eyes.

Will normally playtest a deck a few matches before leaving a comment and will do my best to not suggest expensive cards unless 1. budget doesn't seem to be an issue. 2. Playtesting gives me the feeling that the one expensive card would be like warm, fresh syrup on top of a stack of $4,000 pancakes made by gods. (for instance swords in a deck full of double striking, hexproof, industructable creatures.)

Current highest mtg tournament achievement: 2nd at a PTQ as the first seed going into the top 8.

I started attending tournaments around the time I joined TappedOut and have referred the site to almost as many people as I have suggested people here to read the article "Zero to Sixty".

"As I've spent more and more time working on games, though, I've realized that they're popular precisely because they address real human needs. They evoke real human emotions in ways other art forms address, but occasionally cannot touch. Flow and fiero are two of the most straightforward of those."

way too many cycle lands, wraith should be a playset. so many cycle lands you will always be playing the majority of your lands tapped making you too slow to properly interact in modern.

Drake Haven is possibly your best bet to a main wincon, though the deck likely needs more interaction, especially if they're degenerate decks aiming to win by turn 3.

something like this decklink might be a good way to start, thalia by far is too important a card to just not use her (though the linked deck I'd be more partial to Doomed Traveler over the vanguard) the deck lines also would be quite similar to how humans runs (the ally theme would more be an offshoot and teach you different lines than from just normal humans would take). now the list is also probably a bit outdated, but overall mono color will put you significantly more within budget and you can slowly build up to the full deck. or you could go with thalia over the images, she's just too important for tempo.

to delete (hide) comments you go into the deck edit and it's in the last options at the bottom, the comments still exist, but if the conversation on them is of stuff no longer for the current version of the deck new people won't feel they have to read comments or scroll down (before the hide comment feature some decks had the scroll bar become unclickable it was so small).

wait, when it was standard previously it was a $2 rare, at least let m20 hit it's release week.

oh man the downscroll (maybe monthly clear up comments or make clears after conversations die down) but for cuts for those 3 lands you got I'd suggest Mind's Eye (really slow draw engine) Archangel of Thune (you don't seem to be abusing her power which would be more than up to 1 trigger a turn) and Kindred Summons (because if you have enough elves to make it good you likely have plenty of elves already).

your previous opinions on what to cut might be a bit important to getting you ahead enough vs some of the stronger decks or just being your biggest payoff to win.

Honestly I'd love there to be remaster sets, but I feel they could be used as a vehicle to pull people to magic fests as special "draft" packs (3 packs in a small box, because boxes are often short for sealed on demand events...) and they literally only be available to draft at magic fests. and this is coming from someone who is a 2 day drive min from the nearest place to get big events.

oh shit, well if you're that close to a lgs owner you technically don't really apply to most people's thoughts on the matter, but still best to take advantage of your friend's good will instead of trying it if his price spikes

wallisface it is true karn makes it much better and should be the main source of the combo, but there are versions out there that's running 3 coating main and 1 sb, the other artifact hate should be the less common cards, like 2 mb shenanigans 4 karn

ok, your store which most lgs buy cards at 40% low is willing to give you market jump on that, later he could be 80 and your lgs might only give you what they'll give you now for it.

Feather, the Redeemed decks could be fun, though they would lose their best removal spell.

umm this combo is already been seeing play in modern, at least with war of the spark Karn doing the job of the shenanigans.

June 20, 2019 3:22 a.m.

there is sparkles of great cards in the deck, but the deck looks more like a Ghave, Guru of Spores deck with spatterings of combo's made more difficult to construct because the missing black. for cuts maybe the rector (no ugin to really abuse the mana cost reduction), most of the planeswalkers (hard to protect in a multiplayer game and doubling season abuse is minimal, samut would get you what two creatures to win you the game for example?) and Fecundity (you have one instant speed sac outlet and a lot of deck archetypes would abuse your enchantment more than you would in most games).

MtgGoldfish replay link video of essentially this deck. the problem is all your combos are too slow to not run interaction to buy you time to combo turns.

June 18, 2019 3:18 a.m.

Liliana, Untouched By Death -3 will let you cast zombies from your graveyard.

Vivien, Champion of the Wilds -2 creatures can trigger it at instant speed.

Chandra, Fire Artisan you can trigger oketra from her abilities, Experimental Frenzy you can trigger from creatures off the top of your deck.

Thief of Sanity creatures stolen from that will do it, as does Release to the Wind and Hostage Taker

... Skullclamp ! sorry popped into my head right after posting so I guess the deck could be just fine.

June 17, 2019 4:23 a.m.

hmm random brewing though that popped into my head, Metallic Mimic and Lesser Masticore can make for part of a hulk grab that is only 4 cmc (or 5 with a seer) that the masticore can also combo dmg like a... where's Walking Ballista ? the unicorn allows a hulk combo with ballista, actually you might just want the mimic over the unicorn, in all the plan b combos you have it's unlikely you'd just blind drop the unicorn before you already had the other combo piece ready since a table of cedh will likely hate it out fast, so you can do mimic naming the creature type you want the extra counter on.

oh yeah back to the mimic with masticore combo benefits, masticore can be a discard effect when you'd want one (good for a reanimator version) when you combo with an altar it's an infinite dmg source on it's own, mimic and masticore would also be completely colorless, being a lot more friendly than messenger to say the least to cast it also works with more of your tutors... I caught myself rambling but to say the least it works better than messenger, and I have to admit, Earthcraft with only 3 basics in deck might make it weaker than it should be, sure you have many fetch, but it also nobo's with your Root Maze . Dark Confidant in most cases might be weaker than say a Elvish Visionary , Tymna the Weaver , or even just a Sign in Blood type spell ( I can't remember the 1B version name from mirrodin block), it's slow and inefficient for cedh.

my final suggestion would be Concordant Crossroads , in cedh it likely will just be a sorcery that gives your creatures haste on the turn you make infinite tokens, but it is also a world enchantment which will world rule destroy another world enchantment like The Abyss or Nether Void . it's also likely there can be tables where just playing crossroads will benefit just you.

Though for overall power level issue I'd say card advantage is what this deck most could use, maybe a cycle land Life from the Loam package, necro and library do help, but having some of a draw engine that doesn't shut off when a smart group attacks into you (cedh tables send all their creatures at the black/green players to shut off their draw engines). I could ramble forever and must stop myself now, sorry if it cuts out on a weird place.

June 17, 2019 4:20 a.m.

Abzkaban this is essentially a revised version of my old ghave deck Tokens and Counters Everywhere, now outside of the obvious answer to some of your suggestions of "I don't have it and follow a build the deck you can play with brewing idea" (mainly the ballista, it came out when I was away from the game and I'm stuck hoping hangarback can do a close impression) I admit I love defending card choices (often it can drive me to want to change it up when I actually type it out) so here we go.

Though I will pause and say I honestly am not currently in any meta, it's usually a long drive to find anyone who's into commander and quite often the games I am in I have to carry many decks of varying strengths, my tasigur is aimed to be the high power deck while this one I'm more looking for something that is strong, but I can play it against non cedh people.

now Butcher of Malakir , Citanul Hierophants and some other odd creatures are chosen because they are creatures that I can Birthing Pod into or reanimate.

as for why Martyr's Bond over pact or dictate it's partially because I've made my mana base purposefully heavy in plains for the Emeria Shepherd Sakura-Tribe Elder combo and bond procs off itself, another reason it because quite often if I'm going to get a game of commander in I'll have to let people borrow from my decks, one of which is Sigarda, Host of Herons and yeah in the past someone borrowing a ghave deck would just clear the board of everything but the tron angel just making voltron strat stronger seeming than it really is. and now that I think about it there's a few Rest in Peace or leylines in some of the decks I have sleeved atm...

Now the undying creatures and persist ones are definitely interesting, but that level of tuning the deck likely will go for the higher power level and less the janky Doubling Season power level. I might look into it if I ever get to play paper mtg as much as I really want to.

the macabre was picked mostly just to be the surprise uncounterable gy hate that I can Haunted Crossroads back. though maybe I should put back the Knight of the Reliquary back in and add the bog over the archdruid, question is if I have a spare bog lying around.

Fungal Bloom in most cases is just a worse proliferate source, you also could just cut the token makers that isn't saprolings, the reanimation type spells also are more a weaker Harmonize when the deck isn't actively filling it's gy like this version of ghave is.
