Said on Mill on my ......

Feel free to take a look at mine for ideas - Drawing Dead - I love to mill and mill often :)

Profet93 -

My concern for running more than 2 Planeswalkers is that I really don't have a lot of ways to protect them.Vivien Reid takes 4 turns to ult and will very likely be targeted quickly. Additionally, it costs 5, and doesn't contribute to reducing my commander's cmc.

I added Wren's Run Vanquisher for a couple of reasons. 1. Elf Synergy 2. Playing it is like playing an additional forest for my commander's sake (costs 2, but has a 3 power) 3. Deathtouch, which doesn't synergize well, but would maybe deter an opponent from just swinging in with something. Additionally, with all of the elf synergy, I can't help but think this 3/3 will be closer to a 5/5 or 6/6+ the majority of the time.

I looked a bit for some additional elves that could provide support. What do you think of Gaea's Herald or Wood Elves?

What do you think of replacing Emerald Medallion with Herald's Horn? Costs 1 more for the same effect, but adds card draw potential.

Profet93, king-saproling, aeio - Thanks for the love! I just finished my first major update to the deck (can be seen in the accordion above). Please let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions!

Thanks, Profet93! While I work on these changes, do you mind sharing your suggestions on the creatures I've chosen?

Again, excellent information, Profet93! Can you tell I’m still a bit “green” when it comes to deck building?

FYI – There are 2 brutal flyer decks in my playgroup. Alela, Artful Provocateur and a dragon tribal, piloted by Torbran, Thane of Red Fell. That is why I originally added cards like Predator, Flagship, Clip Wings and Whirlwind.

It's frustrating that they can just fly over everything… but if there are better cards, then let’s add them! My notes are below!

Predator, Flagship - see comment above

Emerald Medallion – I see that you’re saying here. I currently have x8 1, x2 artifact creatures and x3 others, for a total of 13, that wouldn’t benefit from this card. However, I still have 26 creatures (that includes my commander) that can use it. Is that not enough to justify the 2 cost of the artifact?

Burgeoning – You’re probably right, plus it would give me some additional budget to work with.

Prodigious Growth – I originally added this for 4 reasons (prob not good ones!) 1. I could slap it on commander for more dmg. 2. I could slap it on my larger dorks for survivability. 3. I could slap it on one of my creatures with reach to take care of some dragons without dying. 4. Card draw, based on creature toughness. I definitely like bear umbra though! Colossal Majesty – I’ve never played elves before, but it seemed while most of their power is lower than 4, their synergy allows them to build quickly. However, I def like Rishkar's Expertise more!

Clip Wings – I can see how this card can be weak, given that the opponent gets to choose which flyer gets destroyed. And obviously this only works against flyers.

Jungle Basin – Understood. Consider it out of there! Replace it with a forest?

Desert Twister – I totally understand what you’re saying here and agree. I’m just trying to stay under budget!

Tranquility – Understood. What would you replace it with?

Whirlwind – see comment above

Journey of Discovery – Replacement options?

Nature's Spiral - Eternal Witness,

Regrowth is strictly better. - I can see why after reading the text!

Overrun - Roger that!

Gaea's Bounty – I see that it’s like Journey of Discovery. Replacement options?

Rude Awakening/Sylvan Awakening – I don’t think I get the “combo” you’re talking about. Are you just saying that you wouldn’t have to tap the lands for mana, but attack with them because you could use cradle to produce mana?

Profet93 Thanks for the advice! One thing I don't want to do is rely too much on equipment, although it would be hilarious (IMO) to equip Grafted Exoskeleton. I already have 2 equipment heavy decks! I just want to abuse Ghalta, Primal Hunger. I haven't run this before, but I'm guessing that I'd only be paying 2-3 each time for him. I understand the board clear situation, hence the "high risk, higher reward" name. A lot of your suggestions are upgrades (no doubt), but what would you remove that would also keep me around my $150 budget.

king-saproling - Just finished building this deck and would appreciate any suggestions that you may have! Thanks in advance!

When was the last time you ran this deck? Any updates? How often did you actually win with Helix Pinnacle?
