RNR_Gaming Once people step away from the Merfolk and Zombies and whatever, all the big tribes, it becomes more interesting. I've seen a couple variations of Spider tribal and Golem tribal, I'm always working on Skeletons, and I hear Omniscience_is_life built a Dryad deck.

If even that feels too repetitive, mess with the colors or themes. Try Boros Dragons, or Grixis Elementals. Outside of Commander, Slivers can be almost any color combination and focus, if you stick to 1-3 colors. Altar of Dementia , Sands of Delirium , and Altar of the Brood take the ramp and token spam of an Elf deck and turn it into a mill deck.

Every few years, a tribe gets a big push--Treefolk in Lorwyn, Vampires in Zendikar and Innistrad, Pirates and Dinosaurs in Ixalan, Knights in Eldraine. Even without those, most tribes have some sort of internal synergy or theme. These might not break a Top 8 or whatever the measurement of success is these days, but they'll be more memorable than Orzhov Stoneblade #5427.

lagotripha Oooh that sounds fun. I typically play edh and had grander plans with this deck but had to cut down, a lot.... and go with when in doubt swing out lol. But I like Altar of the Brood and Llanowar Reborn . Gonna work them in, possibly as well as Chatterfang, Squirrel General and Blade of the Bloodchief . Maybe Death's Presence but wanna keep curve lower. This is making me wanna build a Reyhan, Last of the Abzan + Slurrk, All-Ingesting commander deck lol

I like this idea. It reminds me of the old Presence of Gond or Turntimber Ranger combo lists.

I feel like getting redundant options for ivy lane is the most important thing - Blade of the Bloodchief +sac outlet will let you get a lot of sacrifices in, Rite of Passage / Urban Daggertooth , Thornbite Staff and Blasting Station will get a lot of etb triggers. Triskelion and Death's Presence exist. Fecundity has been a combo staple for a while. Llanowar Reborn offers a way to get the first counter on herd.

Altar of the Brood is a neat alternative wincon.

If you want to go the old Turntimber Ranger route, there are more changeling options, and alternative lines like Deeproot Elite to take advantage of whichever changeling effect you are using.

Aeriosis, your suggestions are actually fully appreciated. It makes me happy to consider more possible cards for any of my decks. I don't think this deck needs Altar of the Brood , although both Minamo, School at Water's Edge and Illusionist's Bracers are excellent finds! I'll see what cards to swap out of the deck to put those in.

While Silence/Rule effects hurt us, both Drannith Magistrate and Yavimaya are great!

This is a deck oriented around the combos of Parallax Wave / Opalescence as well as Earthcraft / Squirrel Nest , with Altar of the Brood being an additional piece that immediately kills with either.

zach3584 I gotcha! That makes a lot of sense actually. Since there will be a lot of ETB effects. How about Altar of the Brood ?

Earthcraft is another one of those cards that is outside my budget sadly, otherwise I'd of already included the Earthcraft + Squirrel Nest combo. For some reason I always thought Altar of the Brood was just creatures. Since it's permanents that's far better than I expected.
