Avalanche Caller

Snow Creature — Human Wizard

: Target snow land you control becomes a 4/4 Elemental creature with hexproof and haste until end of turn. It's still a land. (A creature with hexproof can't be the target of spells or abilities your opponents control.)

With this new design, we're looking to keep Jorn alive longer and deal more damage. There's also more ways to summon Marit Lage and pump up snow creatures. The mana base is smoothed out with more snow lands, and more card draw / ramp cards. Let me know what you think of the new brew!

multimedia on Muldrotha Snow: The Frozen Forest

3 months ago

Hey, well done with such a low budget, The Undead Forest is a cool deck name. Interesting deck idea for your first Commander deck with Muldrotha, but why snow? Weathered Runestone completely shuts down Muldrotha.

Marit Lage's Slumber, Jorn, God of Winter  Flip, Priest of the Haunted Edge, Blood on the Snow, Ice-Fang Coatl these are some reasons to play snow with Muldrotha. Iceberg Cancrix can repeatable self-mill and that's a good effect with Muldrotha. Pilfering Hawk can be repeatable loot which gets cards into your graveyard. Unfortunately, this isn't many cards.

Draugr Necromancer is a good card with snow, but it doesn't have much interaction with Muldrotha. Dead of Winter is another good card with snow, but Muldrotha is not a snow creature. Narfi, Betrayer King is fine, able to reanimate itself with snow, but he's support for snow not really a reason to play snow.


Some advice to consider is to play nonsnow cards that can put snow-covered permanents (lands) onto the battlefield to meet the snow requirement for snow cards without playing lots of unnecessary snow creatures. The best way to get snow permanents is with snow-covered lands. You really don't need lots of other subpar snow creatures here.

All these creatures could be cut to improve your deck.


Instead of playing lots of lesser snow creatures, play just the better snow creatures here?

Use other deck slots for cards that can search for and get snow-covered lands onto the battlefield?

Consider adding some spells that are not permanents that can search for and put snow-covered lands onto the battlefield?

Cards that can get snow-covered lands into your hand as well as get cards into your graveyard can be helpful with Muldrotha.

Could also add some snow mana rocks and mana dorks?

Land ramp for snow-covered lands and mana from mana rocks is more ramp which also helps to cast 6 mana Muldrotha as well as having more mana to cast permanents from your graveyard when you control Muldrotha.


Example of a budget more refined creature base with snow.

Good luck with your deck.

Grenaderbrad on Noyan Dar Commander

I have a Noyan Dar deck and it is my absolute favorite. My deck is more of a hard control build (14 counterspells, 7 board wipes, etc), but I think I've still got a couple pieces of advice that could be helpful for the way you've built yours.

First, if it's not too much of a hassle, I'd recommend changing your basic lands to snow-covered basic lands. There are two cards that I have in my deck that have performed really well so far because I have snow lands: Avalanche Caller is a really good way to protect your animated lands from removal and the +4/+4 isn't bad either. Graven Lore is a powerhouse. Scry 5 and draw 3 at instant speed is most excellent.

Some other suggestions:

Clockspinning is a cheap and easy way to repeatedly trigger Noyan Dar. Adding an extra counter to your lands is nice as well.

I don't have this card in my deck since I usually just make 1 land creature VERY big rather than making multiple land creatures, but Energy Arc is another spell similar to some of the "untap all creatures" effects.

Hope this helps!

Mechanon on Zombies, Birds, Gods Foretell Doom

It's an interesting deck, but I think you are trying to do too many things with it. I prefer to have a playset (4) of core cards in my deck. There's lots of 1 card of this, one card of that. For the few white cards you have, you're probably better to stick with just black and blue. Cards like Narfi, Betrayer King and Avalanche Caller you probably want to have more of. I'd drop Orvar, Furneral Longboat, and some of the less useful draugr cards.

HarleyP on Its Chill - Sultai Snow

I've yet to really see any pay-off with Draugr Necromancer too, he's only ever benefitted with Narfi, Betrayer King pumping him slightly, so I'm definitely considering dropping to 2.

As for Frost Augur I literally have a playset to the side ready to be slotted in. I almost kept just 1 copy in my initial build, but opted for other stuff first. I kept bouncing between dropping an Avalanche Caller and an Ascendant Spirit to slot a pair in just to see.

Overall there's so many sweet snow cards in this set, was so hard to narrow it down to these. Love the feedback, very much appreciated. Gonna keep testing and seeing where I need to adjust. Already added in 1 more Binding the Old Gods due to just how good it is. Thanks again dude!
