Ash Barrens Discussion

multimedia on Aesi

Hey, well done on a budget upgrading a precon for a first Commander deck.

There's some cards in the precon to consider adding:

  • Meloku the Clouded Mirror : one of the better budget cards with Aesi because it can bounce lands you control. It can be a repeatable source of flying tokens, landfall triggers or best of all draw with Aesi.

  • Spitting Image : can copy any creature on the battlefield including an opponents creature. Retrace is the reason to include this because by discarding a land you can cast it again from your graveyard and keep doing this as long as you have a land in your hand to discard.


With Murkfiend Liege and Retreat to Coralhelm you can take advantage of Llanowar Scout and Zimone, Quandrix Prodigy who can tap to put a land onto the battlefield. This interaction if you have lands in your hand lets you trigger Aesi on your opponents turns. Can also abuse this interaction with Simic Growth Chamber or Guildless Commons because these lands can bounce themselves back to your hand. Either one lets you trigger Aesi and draw a card on each opponents turn.

Some other cards $1 or less each to consider adding:

Hey, well done on a budget for your first Commander deck. I'm having fun with Veyran with Kalamax, the Stormsire .

You have 111 cards which is too many. Cards to consider cutting to get to 100 cards:


Some budget cards to consider adding:

Buyback is the reason that Reiterate can be a infinite combo with Geyser. After copying Geyser with Reiterate you resolve the copy of Geyser first and then resolve the original Reiterate which puts it back into your hand. While the original Geyser is still on the stack cast Reiterate again to copy the original Geyser and repeat. Can make infinite storm count for Grapeshot , infinite cast of instant for Guttersnipe / Ral, Storm Conduit or infinite mana for Jaya's Immolating Inferno as win conditions.

If interested I offer more advice including cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

Hey, you're welcome.

My next advice is consider improving the manabase? More dual lands in place of some basic lands, Bloodfell Caves and Immersturm Skullcairn to help color fixing. 27 basic lands is a lot for a three color deck since you risk drawing all of one or two types of basic lands. On a budget there's several lands to consider adding:

Lands that will always ETB untapped are better, but there aren't a lot of budget options. The next tiers of prices for some lands for future upgrades ($4 lowest to $10 highest):

Since your commander cares about card types in the graveyard, on a budget Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse both can put a land in the grave for you! To add to the additional cycle lands, Ash Barrens is another one that can color fix you in the early game! Whip of Erebos counts as both an enchantment and an artifact and can provide late game stability with lifegain and getting stuff back from the grave. Font of Fertility is another enchantment that you can get into the grave pretty easily.

If you want to keep the spider tribal theme, I'd recommend jamming as much card draw in your deck as possible! Maybe look into cutting some of the underwhelming (but cool) spiders like Sporecap Spider , Root Spider .

Also just some food for thought, your commander is an infinite mana sink in disguise, so any combo that gives you infinite mana turns into a win condition! Or flickering your commander is fun too, though in your current build, there is not a lot of value targets in the deck aside from your commander

Hey, well done version of Kykar on a low budget.

Consider Retraction Helix and Everflowing Chalice ? These two cards combo with Jeskai Ascendancy for infinite storm count on a budget. With Kykar this combo is infinite Spirits and infinite red mana. Without a combo or repeatable ways to shuffle all cards in your graveyard back into your library such as Elixir of Immortality I think you're going to have trouble winning games with the current strategy. One idea is the chipping away at your opponents can help to setup a combo to finish and win the game.

With the strategy here Feather, the Redeemed pairs well with Kykar since cards that target a creature you control can then be repeatedly cast to create Spirits and/or draw cards. In multiplayer low mana cost instants that draw can be a lot of draw and are borderline busted with Feather. With Feather blue adds to what Boros doesn't have such as Retraction Helix , Shadow Rift and Leap . If attacking with Kykar and Spirits then Reconnaissance Mission and Mask of Memory can be consistent repeatable draw sources since flying creatures can consistently do combat damage to a player.

Some budget land upgrades to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

And again, since your commander cares about lands in graveyards, Crop Rotation can fetch any needed utility lands/fetching lands. And Springbloom Druid is a Harrow with legs! Roiling Regrowth is a newer card that fetches you lands. And Nissa's Pilgrimage is an all star with the potential to give you 3 lands for 3 mana!

Hope that gives you some ideas!

Hey, nice budget version of Edgar.

You have the right idea with wanting to cast Vamps quick to take advantage of eminence, but the manabase also needs to match this strategy. There's too many lands that will always ETB tapped which reduces the consistency of casting Vamps quick. More dual lands that can ETB untapped would speed up game play.

Some budget land upgrades to consider:


Some other budget cards to consider adding:

Higher CMC Vamps as less needed because you have Edgar who's the six drop you want to cast more than the others, but Necropolis Regent is a budget second. Like Edgar, Regent is also good with a Vamp swam as well as with Edgar and other flying Vamps.

Good luck with your deck.
