Oh yay I found the wurm deck!

If your having issues with control some tools I recommend are Sheltering Word/Heroic Intervention to stave off removal.... both have their own merits.

Then there is Obstinate Baloth and Veil of Summer that can help against discard and help get things to resolve....Gaea's Herald/Cavern of Souls and Leyline of Lifeforce are also good sideboard options.... dont let the flame die out!!!!

TypicalTimmy, Playing xenagos quickly is integral to this deck working. A single Counterspell sets us back 2 turns and allows people to set up their Rhystic Study, Fact or Fiction, and other big draw spells, digging for more answers and keeping us from resolving our game plan. You’ll find Cavern of Souls in hypercompetitive The Gitrog Monster decks for this same reason.

Profet93 I think you’re going about solving your meta in a less efficient way. If removal is your issue, I would double down on protecting your 1 big threat, not trying to throw more 5-10 mana threats at 1-2 mana spot removal, this is a battle they are going to win. Try things like Blossoming Defense, Vines of Vastwood, etc. if counterspells are your issues, then Red Elemental Blast, Reverberate, Prowling Serpopard, Domri, Anarch of Bolas are your friends.

With respect to your creature suggestions: yes you can run Kozilek, and other Hydra Friends, but to win consistently, you want T3 Xenagos, and T4 Beater. Past T6, this deck gets a lot worse and if you are stuck with a Kozilek as your only threat in hand for T4-7, you lost your battle. Hydras are the similar, they are CRAZY good when you sink 12+ mana into them, but eh when you have 3 lands and a Sol Ring. We need things that swing the fences for 6 mana every time, like Godo, Malignus, and the Infect creatures. Also Godo+Embercleave takes and extra combat with Godo’s ability. It’s the best beater with Xenagos.

I ran a Tooth and Nail package in my Xenagos for a while but dropped it because of the 9 cmc to play it. If Xenagos was out, I went for Archetype of Endurance and Blightsteel Colossus for a auto kill. Without xenagos it was blightsteel and Urabrask. But that leaves us with 3 cards that are too expensive and one that is good but not great for the deck. Not saying you can’t do it, but I chose against it.

For all the negative things I say about mono white, you built this commander well. Hedron Archive addressed both ramp and card draw which you need in the deck.

Kor Haven and Cavern of Souls are both good inclusions

Scroll Rack - To help you dig and very strong synergy with Land Tax.

I see that flash and felidar sovergn. You sneaky, I like!

Got the last cards for this deck last week and WOW, it really is so much F'ing fun to play. I wasn't perceived as a threat for the majority of the game until it was too late.

I did make a few changes and wondering what you think about it Liquidbeaver

Added: Cavern of Souls removing Darksteel Citadel

Thinking about adding: Nyx Lotus Gamble

I'm having some trouble figuring out what to cut though, any ideas?

Hey multimedia

Thanks for your opinion & honest Work on this Deck

Lands & Manabase

I think the Manabase should be not the Problem here
I dont play any of these expensive Lands in any of my Commander Decks and i didn't see any disadvantage in my Playgroups
The Lands i use here are all in stock and so i don't have to buy them
So if i will get my Hands on a better Land, i can exchange them with one in any of my Decks.

Anyway i see the Advantage on your choice of Lands and i will put them on the Upgrade List for this Deck with one exception

Mystic Sanctuary
This one is on his way into the Deck

I will cut Cavern of Souls because this is a relic of thinking about a Ninja Tribal CMDR
Never mind Cavern of Souls will be on the Upgrade list too but i have other Decks where i have to put this 60 Bucks in first ;-)

Baleful Strix + Arcane Adaptation + Wingcrafter

I didn't think about any other Creature's because i wanted to make it a Tribal Ninja CMDR
The only one i had in mind was Changeling Outcast

But these three are a must have for this Deck

So for Arcane Adaptation , Baleful Strix & Wingcrafter i will cut Price of Knowledge , Downsize & Drowned Secrets

Delve

I dont consider anymore :-)
Temporal Trespass , Dig Through Time & Treasure Cruise are in of course
Now i have to learn to fuck up my grave but i think i can handle this :-D
So Folio of Fancies , Spellbook are out and now i'm in struggle

I think that The Magic Mirror + Venser's Journal is a "too nice" Combo to Cut and on the other hand they have high CMC
Cutting Spellbook was also hard because Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow and all the others Ninja's "hopfully" gives you so much Cards
So i don't want to cut more "No Maximum Handsize" Cards because i think they're essential
The last card to cut you're offering is Erratic Portal so this one is Out
But this one was in for Protecting some of the "Nasty Ninja's" against hitting the grave from Battletricks
Hopefully the Entomb + Filth or Entomb + Wonder combo and / or Crystal Shard , Walker of Secret Ways will do their job

Vampiric Tutor + Lim-Dul's Vault + Insidious Dreams


So Vampiric Tutor is a well known Card but i think I've got enough Top Deck Manipulation and the "Cards to cut" are Rare. Same is true for Insidious Dreams wich i didn't know before
I had Lim-Dul's Vault on mind when i builded this Deck and maybe this is a game changing "Top Deck Manipulation" because of the mass of Cards u can look at

So i will clear the Maybeboard and all three are in there and i f i find a card to cut Lim-Dul's Vault will be the one who gets in 1st

Chain of Vapor

So here i need a quick 101 on this Card

"At this Moment i'm too stupid to understand how this card work and why it is so good in a Yuriko Deck" So i'm not too stupid to understand how this card works @all-> i'm too stupid why this one should be good and don't any have clue on this combo
So please give me the "Breakthrough"

Shitty English & Bad Grammar

Sorry for my very Basic English Grammar and this shitty English
I think in my Mothers Language much of this Desaster would sound very differnt :-D
And here are some dots and commas if u need them -> ........,,,,,,,, :-D

THX Bro
Update of the Deck will be done soon

MRDOOM3 on Gishath, Prehistoric Shepherd

Door of Destinies , Metallic Mimic , Mirror Entity , Shared Animosity , Steely Resolve , Urza's Incubator , Cavern of Souls (only if you're willing to shell out the money), and Coat of Arms are some pretty nice tribal staples to put in here.

The worst thing that could happen to any creature-heavy deck if someone decides to pop a Supreme Verdict or a Merciless Eviction and wipe out your entire dino legion (trust me, I've played a game with my Trostani tokens deck where one of my opponents cast a Damnation, followed by a Mutilate on his next turn, and it was not too healthy for me). Heroic Intervention is a decent budget option to avoid this. If you're willing to dump some more money into this deck, Teferi's Protection is much more versatile creature evasion.

Asceticism is another decent card to have in a deck like this, along with Sylvan Library (again, only if you're willing to shell out the money for it, it's practically a staple in any EDH deck with green). If you can ramp up to it, Tooth and Nail is an AMAZING creature tutor that also lets you crap them out same turn.

Urabrask the Hidden is another nice little card that gives creatures haste, and Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger or Mirari's Wake can allow you to ramp up to higher numbers more easily.

Domri Rade 's ultimate is pretty decent for any face-smashing deck. Arlinn Kord  Flip's ultimate, along with Mage Slayer , and I suppose maybe even Siege Behemoth (though he kinda breaks the Dino tribal vibe a bit), allow you to skip that potential wall of chump blockers and/or pillowfort enchantments like Propaganda or Ghostly Prison. You also can run Triumph of the Hordes , Finale of Devastation , Savage Beating , World at War , or Relentless Assault if you really, really want to beat someone's face into a pulp.

Xenagos, God of Revels is nice for doubling Gishath's damage output, along with Gratuitous Violence and Berserkers' Onslaught , and hence, revealing more cards with Gishath, which means more dinos on the field. Strionic Resonator can double that triggered ability for even more cards revealed.

Amb130 I only have those in as a back up as in my meta I can face such a variety of decks and I'd like to have at least a few basic lands as a back up. This mana base was set off cards I've put into the pile but ideally I'd like the 10 fetches, 10 shocks, Cavern of Souls and a few basics with some decent lands scattered through. The mana ramp I wanna put in will Tutor for non basics e.g. search for a forest, etc. ( on mobile atm, apologies for not linking the cards) :)

TheCardPool those are solid additions!. Spirit of Resistance is A+ for this I imagine, will need testing to see though. Thank you! :D

So I know lands aren't the most fun thing in magic but Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Cavern of Souls will definitely buff up the success rate of wins and consistency. Additionally, you asked for cheap goblins that produce more goblins Goblin Rabblemaster and Legion Warboss may help you in that endeavor. Lastly, I'd highly recommend some stax pieces like Magus of the Moon and Blood Moon they synergize with your lords and give your goblins evasion all while crippling your opponents mana base.
