Triton Deckling

"Had some free time and decided to write the primer for Triton" -Triton

Mainly a casual player, haven't been to any tourneys yet. I make up for that by having enthusiasm for the game. Been playing MtG on/off for about a year, but I've managed to learn quite a lot over that time. I started out playing Standard, because of the more smaller cardpool, then moved to Commander about 4 months ago because I had trouble keeping up with Standard set rotations. As of now, Commander is my main format, but I occasionally play casual Casual and Frontier.

Also a huge budget player, so be ready to have suggestions turned down because I usually can't afford cards, and most of the expensive ones I get from friends.

I love brewing decks (understatement), so it allows for me to flex my knowledge of the card pool of MtG.

Feel free to ask for advice on a deck (preferably commander), and I will do my best to help out. :)

As for my playstyle, I'm definitely a Spike. I enjoy victories in games, but I can always take a loss in a game, as it's a way for me to gauge how to upgrade a deck. Most of my decks are based similar to top lists (e.g. the best Breya deck), with some tweaks to them.

As for decks I like to play, it depends on the player pod. 1v1's I usually choose an aggro/stompy deck, but for multiplayer, I like decks that are combo/not turning creatures sideways.

Some personal information: I play in a death metal band with friends and also a huge metalhead who has a large passion for music.

Said on Mina and Denn ......

#1

Mina and Denn were my first deck too, and I stuck to them for a while before moving onto Omnath, Locus of Rage. I'd recommend land ramp, such as Cultivate and Kodama's Reach over mana rocks. Of course include Sol Ring, though haha. Mina and Denn can also abuse lots of cool lands too. Glacial Chasm is very good, and also Gaea's Cradle if you have a kidney to spare. :p

One other thing I'd advise are landfall effects. The token producers, such as Angry Omnath, Rampaging Baloths, Zendikar's Roil and Sporemound are all very nice, since you get an extra 2 bodies a turn. Akoum Hellkite is nice, along with Horn of Greed (you benefit off of it more than your opponents and it's a deter for them to attack you) and Retreat to Kazandu.

Here's my deck when I built them, feel free to take a look for inspiration and ideas.

Flagellum I have considered Reality Acid, I'll reconsider adding it in. The Rishadan creatures are pretty cool, I do like the repeatable removal.

Fatespinner is hilarious, but it is a tad expensive ($$-wise) for me, and I do like how on-theme Dignitary is in this deck.

Thanks for the suggestions!

python2048 thanks for all the great suggestions! I'll add in any of the <$2 cards that you suggested, I was at first hesitant about Karmic Guide since she's quite combo-oriented. However, I believe I do not have any of the other combo pieces that would make her go infinite.

Trinket Mage seems pretty good, I don't know how I would feel about it since Pilgrim's Eye does have more combos. I'll put it into consideration. The main reason I added it in was because I ad a foil one lying around, but it's no problem taking it out haha. Thalia's Lancers would be better if I had more legendaries, as you stated.

I think cutting all the auras would be a good idea, I'll add in Whispersilk Cloak. I completely blanked on that card and was thinking about it today haha.

I agree completely with the mana rocks, I can easily find a place for them in the deck.

As for protection for Brago, I'll consider adding more non-permanent bounce cards, but it does mean that I'll have to readjust some cards, as I enjoy lots of permanents for Mastery of the Unseen and blinking value, but it's no biggie. :)

Hey all,

Recently decided to try making a deck that does not go infinite, and focuses on getting value out of cards. What's more better than blinking the cards, amirate? I chose Brago to fulfill this role because colors are really outside of my comfort zone, and Brago seems like a fun commander to build.

Anyways, I'm mainly looking for cards to replace others that are mediocre in this deck. I am on a budget, so I am well aware of cards such as Panharmonicon, Eldrazi Displacer, and Venser, the Sojourner existing, but I did not include them because they are currently out of my budget range.

Without further ado, here is a link to the deck:

Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper and Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa are two really good commanders that recently came out to be in the 99, they grant bonus effects while having high toughness.

PG7m thanks for the upvote! It's a love-hate relationship with these guys, I love the colors and the combos, but I hate the fact that there are only 11 decks on the EDHRec database, which makes it quite hard to find ideas for card to add in.

March 20, 2017 10:50 p.m.

I think that trying at least Ancient Den and maybe Darksteel Citadel (since you're 2 colors it's manageable imo). I don't know how I feel about Great Furnace since you are running not many Mountains, although both mountains and the artifact land are red sources.

How often would you say Vandalblast is out of a certain amount of games? It can just be an estimate. Also after an artifact wipe, would you consider Faith's Reward and/or similar? Also Open the Vaults is less situational.

March 20, 2017 7:35 p.m.

Have you considered squeezing in the artifact lands? I think they'll help with the consistency, but they are vulnerable to Bane of Progress and friends.. You do run quite a bit of artifacts (I'm basing it off of some of the artifact commander list in the cEDH discussion), so I thin k it's worth trying out with Mox Opal in the deck, then with the artifact lands added in and see how consistent it is.

Agreed for Chrome Mox, and Plateau does have some meh art (alters exist but it does cost a kidney haha).

Left a small suggestion and an up vote for the deck above, here's my revised version of my most recent EDH project:


Big Mana, Big Draw

Commander / EDH Triton

There are already four infinite combos in the deck, so looking for adding consistency, whether it be redundant cards or more draw/tutors. Just be sure to keep it budget!

March 20, 2017 7:09 p.m.

Not many ideas for suggestions (I can only think of Chrome Mox, Mox Opal and Plateau haha), but have you ever considered being r00d and using Grafted Exoskeleton? It's definitely a mean card and paints a target, but just a thought.

Otherwise this list looks really solid and earns a +1 from me!

HEX. I do not currently have the budget for Lightning Greaves, but it's definitely a card to consider. Brainstorm was in the list, any suggestions as to what to cut for it?

Looking suggestions on anything but the land base (unless it's concerning utility lands) for this deck:

I think the land base could use some modifying. Windswept Heath would help speed up the deck. I think varying amounts of Razorverge Thickets are might be useful. Also maybe Sunpetal Grove.

If budget is a problem, then I'd suggest taking out the two Blossoming Sands. Modern is a rather fast-paced format, and taplands slow down the deck.

Hope this helps!

warbird I think Dimir House Guard is pretty good, but I kinda like cards that are marginally better outside of Transmute, but more tutors is always better in any deck haha. I'll consider adding it into the deck.

Will make the swap for Rhystic Study if/when I get one.

I haven't had any troubles with hand size, but I'll consider Reliquary Tower and such just in case (I can trade for it and Thought Vessel sometime soon).

Thanks for the suggestions and upvote!

Solid list, the only card that seems slightly questionable to me is Insidious Dreams it's a good card, but I feel as though it gets outclassed by Vampiric Tutor. Also Talisman of Dominance seems a little out-of-place, but I'm not all that familiar with it.

As said before, good deck and I think it deserves an upvote from me!

Left a good amount of suggestions on the above deck, here's one of my recent projects:


Big Mana, Big Draw

Commander / EDH Triton

SCORE: 1 | 6 COMMENTS | 223 VIEWS


It's a midrange/control deck with some infinite mana combos to pay into mana sinks in order to win. As there are very few Silas + Kydele lists on T/O and the EDHrec database, I am quite open for suggestions to improve the deck's consistency. I know the mana base isn't perfect, so I'm mainly looking for suggestions on the nonlands and maybe the utility lands.

Zealous Conscripts goes infinite with Kiki-Jiki. I think also Myr Battlesphere would also be a good card, as it has synergy with Goblin Welder. Chancellor of the Forge is also a very potent token generator to consider.

If you think there are enough creatures that produce 2 additional tokens, Ashnod's Altar and Nim Deathmantle produce infinite tokens and EtBs by sacking a token and then sacking the creature to have the mana for Deathmantle's ability.

Hope these suggestions help!

For the example tier 3 deck lists, my bad.
