RiotRunner789 on Lands vs Enchantments

2 weeks ago

Any commander with green and white could do with green being more important for mass enchantment removal.

Cards to consider: Aura of Silence, Bane of Progress, Aura Shards, Aura Mutation, Allay, Aura Blast, Farewell, Austere Command, Back to Nature, Calming Verse, Cleansing Nova, Heliod's Intervention and Cleanfall.

If course the best enchantment removal is Disenchant.

Ravenrose, thank you for the support and suggestions! I might have a Harmonize, and if I can squeeze it in, I will. I'm pretty sure all my Austere Commands are in other decks. But this is becoming one of my Sir's favorites, so I might have to switch it out!

I love the name of the deck and this is definitely an interesting pairing. I do think this may need some more card draw - Read the Bones, Sign in Blood, Foreboding Fruit. You may need some extra protection; Sphere of Safety and Ghostly Prison come to mind. Maybe one or two boardwipes - Merciless Eviction, Austere Command, Living Death.

I hope this has helped a little.

I think Grow from the Ashes and Explosive Vegetation could be added. Harmonize is good card draw. Austere Command may also be a good card to consider. I love the take on the new Sigarda!

I always loved Trelissara's design. Sadly, my lifegain deck is Esper, so she didn't really fit! I don't know if this helps at all, but I think of my deck in terms of lifegain enablers (our Soul Warden and friends that gain us life) and payoffs (things that benefit us when we gain life, like Trudge Garden).

I would pay special attention to one thing with life gain payoffs: a lot of the cards care about one of 2 things...either 'instance of life gain' (the ones worded 'whenever'...they do not care how much life you gain, just if you do or not), and the ones that care about quantity (the ones worded 'if you gained X or more life).

You're going to want to sculpt your life gain enablers in the deck around what of those you have, and how much life gain they want you to have in a turn, to make sure they can hit your X.

I would consider that a little more next time you play, pay attention to what cards want what effects.

For example, my deck is built entirely around the 'instance of life gain effects', so I seldom need to worry about how much I gain.

That said, some weak spots I noticed: Benevolent Bodyguard, Ilysian Caryatid, Soulmender, From Beyond, Indomitable Might, Hedgewitch's Mask. These are excellent places to start with upgrades! They're not bad on their own, but we can do better!

Note on Aetherflux Reservoir: There are some playgroups that playing this will just get you ganged up on. I always caution people about that. If that's fine with you, it's a strong card. I didn't find it could gain enough life to make it worth it in my deck.

Some possible (not too expensive) upgrades that I enjoy:

Good in an 'instance of life gain' deck: Linden, the Steadfast Queen, Sunscorch Regent, Suture Priest, Gideon's Company, Twinblade Paladin, Omen of the Sun, Ajani's Pridemate, Oketra's Monument, Regna, the Redeemer

Good in a 'gain X or more life' deck: Nykthos Paragon, Gideon Blackblade

Good in both: Dusk / Dawn, Austere Command, Dawn of Hope, Shamanic Revelation

shadow63 on Lae'Zel Master Chef +1/+1 counters

6 months ago

let me just reiterate your card choices aren't wrong. these suggestions are going to be because maybe we have different play styles or different metas. like i really try to keep my removal as flexible as possible and my +1/+1 counter deck is atraxa . Armorcraft Judge its unreliable and is a bad top deck. Avatar of the Resolute it just doesnt scale well to edh. Custodi Soulbinders paying 3 mana just to make a 1/1 is'nt very exciting. Fertilid ive used this one alot and in my games i almost never used it to ramp it was just a vanilla creature.

Return to Dust is just awkward i much pefer Heliod's Intervention. Ruinous Intrusion 4 mana to blow up 1 artifact or enchantment isn't worth it even if does give you a few counters. Lifecrafter's Bestiary with so few creatures its not great. with more creatures in here it could be great. Celestial Judgment there will be games where it will give you the win but there will be games where someone just has something huge out that this just misses or youll have to blow up more of your own stuff then an opponents Hour of Reckoning this is only good in a token deck.

some replacements creatures. Park Heights Maverick, Loyal Guardian, Forgotten Ancient, Walking Ballista, Pir, Imaginative Rascal, Steelbane Hydra, Evolution Sage, Conclave Mentor. non creatures Hardened Scales, Austere Command, Damning Verdict, Tome of Legends, Coalition Relic, Vastwood Surge

How not to love cats and dogs?

If so, it is worth investing in an Unbreakable Formation and Heroic Intervention (which is also on flavour with Ajani), since the last thing you want is for all your furry friends and tokens to die to removal or even worse boardwipe.

Speaking of boardwipes, I see why you included Hour of Reckoning, but be careful as it would also hit a lot of the other creature I expect you to have on the board. An Austere Command should allow you to save more of your own board.

As for mana-base, I would advise to get rid of bad taplands like the guildgates, 0Tranquil Expanse and Blossiming Sands. I am not the biggest fan of bounce-lands in deck that cannot make the best use of them with either landfall or untap effects, but that's up to you. As a budget replacement, painlands (Karplusan Forest, Brushland, Battlefield Forge) could be helpful, and you have lifelink effects available so the downside is minimal. A Naya Panorama can help you with generich mana straight away or to fetch the basics you need.

Brilliant Restoration and Triumphant Reckoning aren't amazing, but they're worth noting I think.

Farewell and Austere Command would be worth noting. I know you're trying to keep the budget down. Austere is cheap now though. Maybe Organic Extinction would be good? I like End Hostilities a lot in this deck.
