Long time player, and have been in and out a few years at a time. I've been fortunate enough to have friends start playing, quit, and hand me their cards enough times to have gathered a sizable collection.

I built 60 card decks for many years, under many different formats, most of them are still around in one form or another. Commander definitely rekindled my deck building enthusiasm, and it's what I currently play most of the time.

Building less competitive decks that are quirky and fun to play is my favorite part of MTG.

Thanks for the upvote! As a commander player, I'm wondering if you have any tips for building a Ghalta Commander deck?

Awesome start. Here's some of my picks for that general theme:

Leatherback Baloth, Rancor, Alpha Authority, Archetype of Endurance, Carnage Tyrant, Conifer Strider, Mwonvuli Beast Tracker, Plated Crusher, Silhana Ledgewalker

and (sounding trumpets)....

Centaur Omenreader is Ghalta's secret love.

Some equipment:

Loxodon Warhammer, sword of fill-in-the-blank (some are pricey), Hammer of Nazahn <--- winner winner chicken dinner, Grafted Wargear, Shuko, Helm of Kaldra, Helm of the Host <--- My new fave equipment.

This deck looks like it's going to be fun to build. Let me know what kind of budget you're on, and I'll make a few more specific suggestions. If you're willing to throw $20 or $40 at this, you can probably make it very aggressive.

Hi there, AJMT-MTG!

You asked for some Ghalta pointers, so here's a few:

Ghalta is primarily a voltron general, and since she comes with trample, she's very good at it.

Lots of cheap equipment with boosts to power like Darksteel Axe and Bonesplitter will serve you well, as you'll be able to equip already well-priced green biggies that help get Ghalta out. Look at creatures w/ lots of in their mana cost, they are usually higher powered for their cost. Critters with hexproof will be a huge help.

Protecting your commander will be essential. Use Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots type cards that protect.

Since you're in green, most folks will lean right into a rampy base, but I don't think it's needed for Ghalta. Your biggest weaknesses are going to be card draw and instant speed removal.

Drop me a line when you put a build together, and I'd be happy to make some more suggestions.

One last note: a double-striking Ghalta wins in one combat (24 commander damage). Fireshrieker!!

Thanks for commenting and testing out my Godo deck. It makes me happy that you like it. A friend and I joked about the interaction with the Helm, and it grew into an actual deck. I don't think it'd be much fun to play against over and over, but totally worth it for that first couple

Happy brewing!

Little ways to force the combo faster are exactly what I'm looking for. I've added them to the maybeboard until I have funds to build this deck up. Awesome suggestions!

Serum Powder is perfect, I totally overlooked it! Last Chance may find it's way onto my next order as well. Thanks for stopping by.

Angel of Invention doesn't exactly fit the 'vampire knight' theme, but...every night has it's dawn...? maybe I'm reaching.. Fun build!

Thanks for the suggestion! I probably won't drop much for more singles on this deck, but I didn't realize there was a gold-bordered version of that.
