BigClickEnergy on Elenda, the Dank Rose EDH

Thanks for the wonderful advice, EVENcast! I think you are absolutely right, I should lean more into one win condition. It is an odd place to be with Elenda as commander--it almost feels like she wants to go wide and voltron at once. I cut Sunbond , Black Market , and Martyr's Bond (felt like it was too slow, other cards do it's job better). Picking up Arcane Signet and Westvale Abbey  Flip, and throwing the Vampire Nighthawk in. See what I can do to focus more on going wide/aristocrats/vampires I suppose. Cheers!

Cool Deck! I’ve never built around Elenda as a commander, but I run her in my Edgar Markov deck and I’ve seen just how powerful she can be. I think you’ve got a nice list here overall, but I would personally add more ramp, and maybe a couple additional lands depending on what mulligan rules your play group has established. I try to have at least 10 pieces of ramp, even if my deck has a low average CMC... er, mana value. I would highly suggest running Arcane Signet , the best mana rock since Sol Ring. Additionally I would probably swap the Black Market for a Land Tax or Smothering Tithe , but I know they’re rather pricey. Black Market is just a bit too slow for my taste, but if works for you then it’s a solid budget alternative. I wasn’t sure if this deck wants to win through commander damage, or going wide with creatures, or life draining through aristocrat effects, or all three, but I would try to stick to a main theme and a sub-theme. Having said that, cards like Sunbond and Cathars' Crusade each support opposing strategies... voltron, and going wide, respectively. From your maybeboard I’d for sure add in Vampire Nighthawk which is just a great value card that’s on theme with your deck, and it’s a 3-drop which lowers the curve. Also check out Westvale Abbey  Flip instead of springjack pasture, it’s inexpensive and it’ll fit right in with your strategy. Good luck in your new playgroup, show them no mercy!

I spoke to iamhikari:

Plan: Pivot towards aristocrats, lower the CMC, maybe more taxing. Though I think going more into the Monarch theme might be more fun/unique. We can try this first:

For starters:

-1 Beseech the Queen
-1 Deliver Unto Evil
-1 Wild Ricochet
-1 Call the Coppercoats
-1 Assemble the Legion

Mana fix and ramp:

-1 Worn Powerstone
-1 Gilded Lotus
+1 Exotic Orchard
+1 Talisman of Conviction
+1 Wayfarer's Bauble
+1 Talisman of Hierarchy ...can also +1
Talisman of Indulgence , but it's slightly pricier.

Expand reach and lower CMC of your removal:

-1 Return to Dust
-1 Terminate
-1 Comeuppance
+1 Chaos Warp
+1 Generous Gift ....alternatively there are some 2 mana removal cards in Strixhaven that might be fun to try out.
+1 either Path to Exile or the cheaper Dire Tactics
+1 Soul-Guide Lantern

Fun monarch theme and control: +1 Court of Grace
+1 Court of Ambition
-1 Black Market
-1 Ixalan's Binding

Pivot to Aristocrats:

-1 Neheb, the Eternal
-1 Thief of Blood
-1 Tectonic Giant
+1 Cruel Celebrant
+1 Syr Konrad, the Grim
+1 Bastion of Remembrance

Still need to deal with your creatures and maybe do some more token generation or something. I'll keep thinking and get back to you.

Looks good so far. Personally I would make these swaps:

  • Deathbloom Thallid -> Keen Sense ; Keen Sense is super strong on Slimefoot, while Deathbloom is a pretty weak effect.

  • Yavimaya Sapherd -> Snake Umbra ; same as above. "Sapherd" is a cute name though D:

  • Tukatongue Thallid -> Perilous Forays ; Tukatongue is cheap but a one-time effect. Forays is a sac outlet and increases your sap production over time via ramp.

  • Jade Mage -> Illusionist's Bracers ; Bracers are a better cost-reduction of Slime's ability than Jade Mage.

  • Verdeloth the Ancient -> Second Harvest ; Harvest is cheaper and will likely give you more saprolings.

  • Korozda Guildmage -> Heartstone ; I doubt you would want to use Korozda's abilities that often.

  • Vitaspore Thallid -> Rings of Brighthearth ; the spore-storing thallids are pretty slow. I think Rings is a better option here for faster sap production.

  • Night Soil -> Song of Freyalise ; Night Soil's effect is pretty narrow and I doubt it will make you many saps, if any. Song of Freyalise is pretty strong here, allowing your saps to make more saps via Slimefoot.

  • Morbid Bloom -> Druids' Repository ; similar to above.

  • Sporeweb Weaver -> Black Market ; I doubt Sporeweb will generate many saps for you. Black Market definitely will.

  • Thelon of Havenwood -> Pitiless Plunderer ; Thelon isn't that impactful while Plunderer is super strong here.

  • Sporesower Thallid -> Smothering Abomination

  • Sporoloth Ancient -> Fungal Plots

  • Thallid Omnivore -> Priest of Forgotten Gods

  • Thallid Shell-Dweller -> Seedborn Muse

  • Druidic Satchel -> Species Specialist

KayneMarco on help me with my morophon eldrazis please!

Another strong mana producing enchantment to think about is Black Market . Given that all your critters could steam roll over most creatures the counters should add up fast on it.
