Caves of Koilos Discussion

Hey, your deck is missing it's Commander. If Alela is the Commander of this deck then you can make it official by tagging her with CMDR. In the deck editor put the CMDR tag after Alela, Artful Provocateur text.

1x Alela, Artful Provocateur *F* *CMDR*

What this does is it displays the card image of Alela in the deck list making her the official Commander of your deck.


Bident of Thassa is a good repeatable draw source with Faeries. Faeries have flying meaning that more times than not you will do combat damage to your opponents when you attack. For each Faerie who does combat damage to an opponent you draw a card. This can draw you a lot of cards. Consider cutting Festive Funeral for Bident?

Some upgrades within the budget to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

May I suggest you Caves of Koilos and Llanowar Wastes as color-fixing lands?

Nomad Outpost ? Clifftop Retreat Inspiring Vantage Sacred Foundry Sunbaked Canyon Caves of Koilos Concealed Courtyard Godless Shrine Isolated Chapel Silent Clearing. For this deck I'd personally recommend the land cards that let you sac for 1 and draw a card to help refill your hand on that final turn with all the cheap mana instant and Sorcery spells you have, as well the Sunbaked Canyon while it does hurt, with lifelink mitigates the self harm to a surplus with some thing as low as Shock. but ultimately price and current unused cards matter. if oyu dont like the self harm part, then go with the Clifftop Retreat making it easy to play untapped with just having a mountain.

Hey, you're welcome. I'll take a look at your deck and leave a comment or two :)

If you have or can afford to get Demonic Tutor then adding it will help your deck. Demonic is in the Mystery Booster set, that version is $24 from TCGPlayer. However, if budget is a concern it's not a vital card because there's other options for tutors. $24 could be used for many other cards especially lands. Godless Shrine, Silent Clearing, Caves of Koilos, Fetid Heath, Isolated Chapel together is $25 and there's less options for good lands.

Cordial Vampire might be worth consideration, as it is fairly low cost and makes trading favorably with your vamps a lot more difficult -- the same is also largely true of Stensia Masquerade; Stromkirk Noble is also a decent enough inclusion on the lower end of your curve.

Your land count also feels kind of low, so I'd recommend more mana rocks, probably the Signet cycle for color coverage at a low pricepoint, as well as Talisman of Hierarchy and Talisman of Conviction, not to mention Heraldic Banner as it pumps your tokens and commander as well. If I remember the general advice I've been given, start with 40 lands and knock 1 off for every 2 rocks, so you probably want to work in around 10 forms of ramp if you are going with 35 lands.

For lands themselves, I'd definitely look into Battlefield Forge and Caves of Koilos, as they come in untapped and have a low price point, and you can probably find some decent lifelink options to offset the life cost if you need to, and I'd also say Legion's Landing  Flip is probably worth consideration if it is in the budget, as Markov is not a deck that will have trouble flipping it into a land.

Hey, cards to consider cutting to make 100:

  • Temple of the False God
  • Inspired Charge
  • Spellbook
  • Brave the Sands
  • Obelisk of Esper
  • Sleep
  • Vanquisher's Banner
  • True Conviction
  • Thassa's Intervention
  • Power Sink
  • Sphinx's Revelation
  • Finale of Revelation
  • Torment of Hailfire
  • Sphinx Sovereign

Most high even CMC cards that are not a Sphinx could be cut because you can't cheat them with Yennett. Spells with X in their casting cost can't be cast with Yennett's ability because most are even and X=0. For this reason I would cut the X spells.


Budget lands to consider adding:

Lands to consider cutting:

  • Azorius Guildgate
  • Dimir Guildgate
  • Orzhov Guildgate
  • 3x Island

Soothsaying is repeatable way to arrange a lot of cards on top of your library. It's been reprinted in the Mystery Booster set, it's currently $3, but it's price will continue to drop as more product is opened. It's the best card to consider adding.

Aminatou, the Fateshifter is odd CMC and her +1 interacts well with Yennett as a repeatable way to help to setup the top of your library. Her -1 can blink a permanent you control which has interaction with Unesh, Magister, other Sphinxs, Mystic Sanctuary, Scry lands, etc.

Sandstone Oracle is an odd CMC Sphinx who can potentially draw a lot of cards in muliplayer Commander and it's good with blink. Rush of Knowledge is a draw spell that's odd CMC. Final Parting is a tutor that's odd CMC.

Other cards to consider cutting for these:

  • Diabolic Tutor
  • Wrath of God
  • Summary Dismissal
  • Sphinx of Magosi
  • Arbiter of the Ideal

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, lots of good cards here, but the part of your deck that needs the most improvement is the manabase. Even on a budget there's lands to consider adding.

Life and Limb + Sporemound is a infinite Sap tokens combo. Winding Constrictor puts more spore counters on creatures. When creating a lot of tokens then Mentor of the Meek, Good-Fortune Unicorn and Champion of Lambholt are nice three drops with repeatable abilities.

Good luck with your deck.

multimedia on Karlov "Aristocrat"

Hey, new Shadowspear is very good with Karlov. Lifelink so he can grow himself and trample to help to break through opponents ground defenses. Shielded by Faith can protect Karlov. Open the Armory is worth adding to tutor for one of these cards.

Sun Droplet is good with Karlov in multiplayer Commander since you can remove a counter from it during each opponents turn and your own. With more opponents more damage can be done to you. Caves of Koilos, Talisman of Hierarchy, Pestilence are cards that do damage to yourself which puts counters on Droplet.

Pestilence can be some major tech with Karlov since you control how much black mana thus damage you do with it. Life gain offsets the damage you do to yourself, it can kill your own creatures/opponents creature for the aristocrat strategy and Karlov can get huge which can keep him alive through the damage as well as keep a creature on the battlefield.

Ranger of Eos has many two creatures to tutor for especially Soul Warden/Soul's Attendant, important cards to have on the battlefield with Karlov. Heliod's Intervention is a powerful instant effect for white in Commander. Well of Lost Dreams repeatable draw when you gain life. Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip is a repeatable way to draw using life. These enchantments are nice have when you're gaining so much life.

Good luck with your deck.
