Aether Mutation Discussion

Keiga, the Tide Star is fun to duplicate. Duplicant maybe.

Snake Basket , Notorious Throng , Aether Mutation , Saber Ants , Broodhatch Nantuko , Progenitor Mimic , Pest Infestation

I'm not a rules guy. Would Sylvan Offering allow you to create elves before treefolk?

Copying Master Biomancer or Biovisionary is so good, maybe replace a couple "lesser" creatures with creature tutors?

I have replaced Aether Mutation with Quandrix Command , because the latter card is almost entirely superior, and doing so reduced the average converted mana cost of this deck from 4.08 to 4.05.

DemonDragonJ on Strixhaven Commands??

I definitely think that the first cards from Strixhaven are quite excellent, and I see that this set shall focus on the five enemy-colored pairs, so I hope that that means that there shall be a set that focuses on the five allied-colored pairs in the near future. I dislike that two of the five commands are sorceries, rather than instants, but I suppose that WotC presumed that those cards would be too powerful as instants. Quandrix command shall be an excellent replacement for Aether Mutation in any deck of mine that contains that card, and the alternate artwork cards are amazing; I definitely plan to get a copy of the alternate art swords to plowshares for one of my decks.

Why is WotC shortening “shuffle you library” to simply “shuffle” and replacing “converted mana cost” with “mana value?” Are they really saving that many words? Why bother, after nearly thirty years of using the previous terminology? Do they realize that they shall need to change a very large amount of cards with this?

Rith probably isn't the best saproling commander. I think you just lose too much value being unable to play AEther Mutation, Ghave, Guru of Spores, Slimefoot, the Stowaway, Sprouting Thrinax, and Supply / Demand. Lifegain always seems like a good idea, but it just adds in the extra step of having to find a way to win the game. If you load up on Blood Artist effects in black and WB, that gives you a better way to affect opponents than hitting a critical mass of creatures to deal 120 combat damage. You also miss Arcane Adaptation, Xenograft, and Conspiracy by not playing black and blue, which seem good.

Personally, I would either go with Karona, False God or Tana, the Bloodsower+Tymna the Weaver.

As for general card replacements, the ramp package is where I see the most room for improvement that is easy on the budget. I highly recommend taking your cues from Dana Roach's EDHREC article on green land ramp.

In general, I would lean away from auras, with the possible exception of Verdant Embrace- there are a few cards like that missing, so I'd check out the saproling cards on Scryfall. That would also be the place to look for tribal cards, although you can also see the most popular ones on the general tribal page and saproling tribal page at EDHREC.
