Averna, the Chaos Bloom

Averna, the Chaos Bloom

Legendary Creature — Elemental Shaman

While you cascade, you may put a land card from the exiled cards onto the battlefield tapped. (Do this after the last card is exiled, but before deciding whether to cast a nonland card.)

Averna, the Chaos Bloom Discussion

B0NGUS on Getting Slivvy With It

I've made some cuts!

Changed Maelstrom Nexus for Descendants' Path . It's 2 mana value lower, requires 4 less colors, still casts, and doesn't care if it casts a MV greater than or equal to a creature I control.

Changed Shared Animosity for Rhystic Study . They're the same cost, but drawing cards/taxing my opponents is more important than making the hive deal more damage.

Changed Leave / Chance for Teferi's Protection . There have been multiple improvements in card draw and Chance was never used in gameplay. Leave forces me to cast all my board again.

Changed Ready / Willing for Cyclonic Rift . I needed more one-sided boardwipes, and have plenty of other forms of defense that makes Ready/Willing too redundant.

Changed Watery Grave for Vampiric Tutor . Going down to 37 lands is fine, and part of the manabase that's out of balance. Vampiric Tutor is the most powerful tutor, no explanation necessary.

Changed Polluted Delta for Overgrown Tomb (apparently it wasn't actually in the deck). Just updating imbalanced manabase, I don't need every fetch in this deck.

Changed Apex Devastator for Vanquisher's Banner . V Banner is 1/2 the cost and provides card draw upon casting. Apex Devastator was fun, and it can explode very well, but it's better elsewhere.

Changed Fury Sliver for Bonescythe Sliver . Just mana reduction costs, they both provide doublestrike. I may reconsider adding Fury Sliver back in for redundancy.

Changed Cleaving Sliver for Brood Sliver . Creating additional slivers at no cost is better than +2/+0, right?

Changed Commander's Sphere for Realmwalker . Additional sliver and card advantage, as well as scouting the top-card for cascade potential.

Changed Pillar of Origins for Prismatic Omen . Pillar of Origins is a mana rock for about 1/2 the spells in the deck, Prismatic Omen color fixes all my lands for all of the spells in the deck.

Changed Averna, the Chaos Bloom for Shifting Sliver . Averna was fun, and the mana ramp was explosive, but let's give no-non-slivers a chance to see how it impacts cascades.

Changed Explosive Vegetation for Reflections of Littjara . Reflections of Littjara doubles Mana Echoes, Distant Melody, Lavabelly, Manaweft/Gemhide, Opaline, Sedge, Spiteful, and Thorncaster effects.

Spells being considered that I own currently; Hollowhead Sliver , Doomskar , & Pyre of Heroes .

Spells being considered that are being purchased soon; Necrotic Sliver , Root Sliver , Bloom Tender , Pulmonic Sliver , Spoils of Victory , Darksteel Mutation , Synapse Sliver , Magma Sliver , Intruder Alarm , Horned Sliver , and Amoeboid Changeling .

Galerider Sliver is being purchased soon and will be changed for Winged Sliver .

Rampant Growth , Path to Exile , Swords to Plowshares , and Heroic Intervention will undoubtedly be added to this deck at some point in the near future. I

Averna, the Chaos Bloom is too good here. They're well worth breaking the cascade chain one time. For 3 mana, they provide lands consistently, easily making them one of the best forms of ramp in a cascade deck. They're simply explosive.

KITTYMANHunkGTI I am not able to help, outside of checking out Mitch's budget brew on YouTube. His channel is called Commander's Quarters. This deck started as his budget sliver brew he made, and then I just spent tons of money to get lands. Thankfully when I bought Sliver Legion and Sliver Queen they were far less expensive at the time (I purchased Sliver Queen for ~$60).

Agreed with hejtmane that Averna, the Chaos Bloom would be a better cascade commander
But the change would not be that easy, right now animor is the only hope of of getting this deck started
With out his reductions you would have to completely retune your cmc and add alot more rocks.

The first issue is who your commander is move Averna, the Chaos Bloom to the commander remove animar from the deck he is not really doing anything for you if you are trying to be a cascade deck. He is better with creatures that can grow +1/+1 counters or creatures with x int the cost and he is the original morph commanderand he works great there still.

Start there make sure your deck is focused on what it's plan is I think it is cascade but you have weird stuff that does not directly benefit your plan of ramp and cascade. Example Prime speaker vannifar she puts the creature on the battle field no cascade triggers no ramp whats her purpose. The real question is why are you ramping for free spells or are you ramping to cast big cascade spells ?

Your deck needs a plan or a wincon and then you can build a sub theme or secondary plan but the sub heme needs to fit into he primary theme for efficient use of cards.

First order of business what type of deck do you want this to be ?

Nyxbloom Ancient maybe? And how about Averna, the Chaos Bloom? That's a pretty insane deck. I love this.

Love It! I feel like Maelstrom Wanderer & Averna, the Chaos Bloom would be fun with this deck.

Stopping your opponents is important but if you combo off first it doesn't really matter
so as you predicted lame answer it depends on your deck
if you CAN build it consistent to go off by turn 3 then do so
if you CAN'T then start finding ways to stop others to buy yourself time.

Seems like Averna, the Chaos Bloom will be a good ramp piece for you! Maybe swap out Shard Convergence or Lotus Bloom? Both strike me as underwhelming ramp. Cool list!

The card you linked to is not the right card. Averna, the Chaos Bloom is the card you want.
