This looks pretty interesting. I'd consider leaning into an entirely colourless package with tron lands, and use Fist of Suns , but the bringers deserve to see the light. There are a lot of 'cheat big stuff' shells out there. Being reanimator is likely the strongest option, and I might try the dice archetype's mana package, to just make a ton of mana. Far from the most fun.

Pentad Prism is used to power out ad-nausiem, and artifact ramp cards offer options.

The unique thing about the big changeling is that he can abuse tribal cards. So go tinker with that.

WUBRG87 on First EDH deck: Mayael

I like what you got going on here! +1! Mayeal's awesome. She too, was one of the first decks i ever built. I have a few suggestions for you though, if you don't mind.

I would replace the Lifespring Druid for Birds of Paradise . Hes does the exact same tning, he's just more efficient at one green. Also, with having only two mountains, take out Chained to the Rocks as I think that if you drew it and you don't have a mountain its a dead draw. I would replace it with a Swords to Plowshares or Path to Exile . Champion of Rhonas is a good card in the early game maybe your opponents don't have blockers or the blockers they do have are just small 1/1 mana dorks or something than hes great. But Quicksilver Amulet and Elvish Piper * are more efficient im my opinion. As you have no need to attack to get the effect and can do it anytime you have priority. (Even on your opponents turns)

Paleoloth and Spellbreaker Behemoth run great with Mayael because they care about anything power 5 or greater. Plus, Mayael's Aria is a fun and flavorful wincon for you! Hope at least a part of this was helpful. Again, +1! Great list for a first start especially! Oh, and Godsire is just a BEAST in Mayeal!

They all feel like they are breaking the rules of magic in some way. At some point in your lgs or your group of friends someone had pointed at and said that one on those cards are busted.


Champion of Rhonas cheats creatures into play just by attacking. That's cheating of mana cost.

Elvish Piper cheats creatures into play for only green tap. Again cheating of mana cost is very busted.

Blade of Selves makes in most edh games up to 3 copies of the equip creature. That crazy good. Its repeatable too. Imagine that on Terrastadon.

And like the blade of selves, Helm of the Host let's you break the rules of the legendary rule. WOTC started putting legendary on creatures because they were to strong in formats where you can have up to 4 copies of the same card in a deck. Such as for example Brimaz, King of Oreskos , this card was super strong in its block but making it legendary made it fair in its block. So back to Helm of the Host , the card does things in magic that were never intended to happen. Especially in Cmdr. Mirror Gallery does a similar effect. I'm sure wizards of the coast didn't think that they'd see a gidion equipped with helm of the host when designing helm of the host.

Lastly Mirage Mirror the fact that this card is like 2 bucks says alot about how many people are playing this card. The card does so man amazing things. Your opponent has the Cabal Coffers and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth in play. Mirrage mirror, boom! You also have that much mana now. Your opponent is doing busted things with urza? Boom mirrage mirror, now you can do busted things with urza too. Is that a Gaea's Cradle ? Boom mirrage mirror, me too. Want to get more value out of a card in play like Sunbird's Invocation ? Boom mirrage mirror. I think you get the point.


Are these cards underplayed in Cmdr? Sho6more people be playing these cards in cmdr? What are some other cards that people should be playing in cmdr? Did I miss any underrepresented cards in Cmdr that people should be playingm

DubbaDub on Mayael the anima v2.0

The thing with Siege Behemoth is that it's a 4 toughness creature and only works when it's attacking. Amulet is a bit slow on paper, but in practice the deck can't really affect the board on turn 4, and it usually doesn't do anything except play Mayael the Anima before turn 5 or 6. My main problem is what to cut. My full list of cards I want to includes but is not limited to: Emrakul, the Promised End Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger Gruul Ragebeast Champion of Rhonas See the Unwritten Illusionist's Bracers Aura Shards Mayael's Aria Grasp of Fate

Bateserade on +1/+1 Simic Victory

Big Update: Added in some cards that I already had. Took out some cards I felt didn't contribute enough to the +1/+1 counters, or I had cards which did what the card did, but better. Also adding in both Nissa and Champion of Rhonas may allow me to cheat out some of my more expensive spells, saving mana for adapting those already on the field.

May also recommend Elvish Piper Quicksilver Amulet and Champion of Rhonas as ways of cheating your creatures. See the Unwritten and Selvala's Stampede serve as the same function.
