Brokers Hideout

Land

When this enters the battlefield, sacrifice this. When you do, search your library for a basic Forest, Plains or Island card, put it onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library and you gain 1 life.

You should think about adding The Pride of Hull Clade because he is good but also cool. But I think you would benefit a lot from improving your mana base. I suggest it should look more like this:

Lands

Basic

8x Plains, 8 Island, 4 Forest

Pain

Adarkar Wastes, Brushland, Yavimaya Coast

Scry Lands

Temple of Mystery, Temple of Enlightenment, Temple of Plenty

Tri Color

Brokers Hideout, Seaside Citadel, Bant Panorama

Any Color

Command Tower, Exotic Orchard

If you wanted you could also add the gain 1 life lands: Tranquil Cove, Blossoming Sands, and Thornwood Falls. You may also consider adding Krosan Verge or Myriad Landscape just to help ramp.

It would also be really beneficial to have at least a Sol Ring and an Arcane Signet.

Other

Remove Verity Circle. Seems like there are a lot of possibilities where it is just sitting on the field not providing any value. And it isn't even a creature so it can't block. You could replace this with one of the mana artifacts I mentioned earlier or like a Swords to Plowshares, Pongify, Rapid Hybridization, Path to Exile (I kind of think you need some more removal lol, but you could replace Verity Circle with whatever you wanted.)

Remove Alive / Well. Just straight up not worth. Replace with one of the cards I have mentioned.

Other than that I think this is a really good deck. I think you could use most of my suggestions and keep it close to $100.

Some new cards to consider after you become a multi million dollar engineer

Lands: All of the New Capenna sac lands. Obscura Storefront, Maestros Theater, Riveteers Overlook, Cabaretti Courtyard, Brokers Hideout. These will trigger landfalls 2x and let you search for the colors you need.

Instants/Sorceries Entish Restoration - If you have Omnath in play you hit 3 of his triggers in just one card Awaken the Woods - Pay X mana to make that many land creatures. Seems pretty good for landfall

Enchantments/Artifacts Conduit of Worlds - You can play lands from graveyard and if you are in a bind, cast spells from there too. Spelunking - Lands come in untapped Back to Basics - Ruins peoples lands if they arent playing basics

Creatures Nissa, Resurgent Animist - Pricey but another mana generator Greensleeves, Maro-Sorcerer - Another Token Generator Rootpath Purifier - Niche card but allows you to search for any land in your library

Thank you for this! It might be old but I do appreciate these. Wanted to also add to anybody who sees: Riveteers Overlook Brokers Hideout Cabaretti Courtyard Obscura Storefront They only pull basics but at least you get the choice for 2. Unfortunately no Abzan version of these.

I play Obuun, Landfall Ancestor, and I came to realize the best removal in landfall is the one that can be used on myself to net more landfall triggers:

  • Ghost Quarter is a Strip Mine that can be used on your own lands. Since you run a heavy recursion + extra land drops package, you can recur both in no time.
  • Dire-Strain Rampage is another one. Unless instant speed removal is crazily needed, I would run it over Nature's Claim, for it can net you four landfall triggers and two lands in the graveyard, and has the extra benefit on being double-use removal whenever needed, even if milled or discarded.

If you don't mind lands entering the battlefield tapped, you might consider Riveteers Overlook, Cabaretti Courtyard and Brokers Hideout. They are easy double landfall triggers that immediately set themselves up for recursion. There also are Obscura Storefront and Maestros Theater, but I believe the green ones are the most important, since they can lead on turn 1 to guarantee a green spell on turn 2 without losing tempo.

  • I since removed Command Tower, Exotic Orchard and lands like that, because I need my lands to either fetch others, be fetched or have an amazing utility (like Field of the Dead), and my deck runs smooth like butter ever since :-)

Hello! May I step in to give you some recommendations? Since you're on a budget, all cards suggested are 2 dollars or less.

Part 1: Ramp

In: You probably want aura ramp and cost reducers over standard land ramp: Wild Growth, Transcendent Envoy, Hero of Iroas, Jukai Naturalist and Stenn, Paranoid Partisan (choosing Enchantment). These will allow you to storm through your deck casting Auras ad nauseam.

Out: Elvish Mystic, Farhaven Elf, Arcane Signet, Nature's Lore and Cultivate are all great ramp cards, but you can do better (and more thematically) with the cards I mentioned above.

Part 2: Card draw

Just as important as ramp is card draw: Galea won't always be available to you.

In: Sage's Reverie, Enchantress's Presence, Satyr Enchanter, Mesa Enchantress.

Out: Coiling Oracle, Curious Obsession (unreliable), Curse of Verbosity (unreliable), Eel Umbra.

Part 3: Removal

Swords to Plowshares is GREAT, no doubt. But, in this kind of deck, you can spice it up with the great Auras that has for removal.

The objective is, then, to use the cheapest Auras that can hit more than one permanent type, with emphasis on "loses its abilities" in the text box.

In: Mortal Obstinacy, Ossification (synergy with your basic land fetchers).

Out: Reclamation Sage, Swords to Plowshares.

Part 4: Boardwipes

In: I believe you should run more boardwipes that leave your board mostly untouched. Austere Command is one such example. You almost always will clean all artifacts and the half of creatures that are more dangerous to you. Curse of the Swine is another selective wipe.

Out: Time Wipe (not one-sided), Plains.

Part 5: Protection and Evasion

In Voltron, tempo is crucial.

Now to the Auras:

Following the same logic as with removal, I'm using auras over instants to protect the Voltron.

Part 6: Tutors

Without Hammer of Nazahn, Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith is just a more expensive Open the Armory.

In: Open the Armory, Heliod's Pilgrim, Moon-Blessed Cleric, Light-Paws, Emperor's Voice and Invasion of Theros  Flip (bonus that all those tutors also change your library's top card).

Out: Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith, Celestial Archon, Heliod's Emissary, Hypnotic Siren, Curse of Unbinding (7 mana is a lot for an Aura).

Part 7: Win Conditions

In: Since you're going all-in with auras, All That Glitters and Ethereal Armor do wonders.

Out: Bruna, Light of Alabaster is slow and telegraphed in this build. People won't let her stick to the field. Nissa, Steward of Elements is tough to protect in a Voltron build, while she only offers scry, which your lands can already do.

Part 8: Lands

In:

Out:

  • Thriving Grove, Thriving Heath and Thriving Isle are neat fixing, but the Temples are superior since they play into Galea's strategy.
  • Path of Ancestry is great if you're in a 5-color deck or in a tribal-heavy creature deck. This build is neither.
  • Lumbering Falls is good for suiting Equipments on, but Auras will just go to the graveyard when this land stops being a creature.
  • Azorius Chancery, because you don't run the other two bouncelands.
  • Razorverge Thicket. You'll soon realize that the later turns are more important than the early ones in EDH. This land is a beast in Modern, but it is far from worth it in Commander unless you're playing a turn-3 win deck.
  • Forest and Forest to give room for the two remaining Panoramas. (With all the land searching above, you're probably more likely now to have a target for Utopia Sprawl than before.)
  • Seaside Citadel. I know, I know: tri-lands are great and all, but, in this build, I'm trying to bake the top-of-library manipulation into the manabase so you have more free spell slots for your Auras, similar to what I did with Yennett, Cryptic Oddity (to a great success): each land in it has to either enter untapped somehow or change the top card of the library.

If you read this far, congratulations! Here is the list of the deck with all the suggested alterations, in case you want to test it: Galea, Menacing Aura. Good luck and have fun!

Logics on Fear of The Deep

From a fellow landfall player, I would definitely play more than 40 lands. Sakura-Tribe Scout is almost assuredly on your radar, but being almost 2 dollars I could see how you'd skip it for a budget list. I think it's definitely worth it though. Brokers Hideout is another fetchland for the deck with you having the option to play the whole cycle if you really want for double landfall triggers. Ghost Quarter is also great for dealing with opponent's powerful lands, but can also be an extra landfall trigger in a pinch.

Also, Meloku the Clouded Mirror (and an untaped land) or Simic Growth Chamber + Retreat to Coralhelm + a creature that taps to put a land in + your commander let's you draw your entire deck, which can help you win out of nowhere if you didn't notice that on deck building. Anyway, hope some of this helps!

Rhadamanthus on Can land creatures be found …

No, this won't work. Ashaya's ability only affects creatures on the battlefield, for two key reasons: Only objects on the stack and battlefield have a "controller", and when an effect names a permanent type and doesn't also specifically say "spell" or "card [in a zone]" then it only means a permanent of that type on the battlefield.

Another problem: Brokers Hideout can only get basic lands. Even if Ashaya's ability was different and specifically affected creature cards in your library, it doesn't make them basic.

I have Ashaya, Soul of the Wild on the battle field. If I play Brokers Hideout could I find a creature card within my deck due to Ashaya, Soul of the Wild's CDA? Or does the creature not become a land until it is on the battlefield?
