Circuitous Route

Sorcery

Search your library for up to two basic land cards and/or Gate cards, put them onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library.

For Ramp I would cut:

Explore the Underdark, Circuitous Route, District Guide, Open the Gates, Gatecreeper Vine all tutor specifically for gates. I'd also recommend an Amulet of Vigor if you can afford it.

Maze's End is moderately expensive but there's no time like the present to start speculatively buying out Plaza of Harmony, Guild Summit, District Guide, and Circuitous Route!

Hi, Cool deck!

  1. You do not use Sol Ring, Arcane Signet If it is for flavour reason then it is ok.

  2. Two mana land ramp >> 4 mana land ramp Circuitous Route, Explosive Vegetation vs Farseek (you have), Three Visits, Rampant Growth

  3. I am not sure about Staff of Nin, Mind's Eye and Warmonger's Chariot. For the staff a simple Harmonize can be better. I would put an MDFC e.g. Ondu Inversion  Flip instead Warmonger's Chariot It doubles as a board wipe and a land.

  4. You are at a low land count 34 is not enough. I would try to find a place for a Bala Ged Recovery  Flip

You've got some cards that just seem out of place here. Daxos, Blessed by the Sun isn't on-theme at all. Kazandu Stomper is clunky; you'd be better off with more land tutor spells like Circuitous Route or Rampant Growth, or better yet, run Ghost Town. Hunter's Edge looks like sorcery speed single target removal at 4 mana...which is boardwipe territory. There are better permanents that can help you accumulate counters.

You have several things here that gain you life, but I wonder why? Lifegain doesn't seem like anything this deck wants to do, and although incidental lifegain can be helpful, it's taking away from the landfall theme of the deck.

You've got lots of slots here that you can tighten up and really focus the deck in.

Alright, I'll try to keep that in mind and minimize the jargon. One thing I'd say about running lands, it's easy to end up with less than you actually need. The difference between 36 and 38 is extremely minor in terms of how many lands you can draw, so the exact number isn't that important, but if you have a higher cost Commander (Tiamat has a Mana Value of 7, or MV 7), you'll want ramp. A higher cost is usually any Commander requiring more than 4 mana, and/or one that requires more than 2 colours, either makes a Commander harder to cast. I end up on 38 in a deck like Reaper King, but I also use a lot of ramp in that deck to generate the huge mana values that deck can require. This deck probably wants anywhere from 36-42 lands, with 42 being where you want to be if you run relatively few ramp effects, 36 would mean running more of them, at least 10. You should probably run Command Tower. Temple of the False God is a risky land in a deck that isn't running a lot of lands, I hate to run it with less than 40 in a deck unless I have a payoff for a land tapping for 2.

It's worth considering basing your mana base around Green, not because most of the cards will be Green but to use Green ramp spells/mana dorks. I'm guessing you aren't aiming to spend a lot on this, so the cheapest $$$ way to increase your mana available is to use Green spells which can find Basic lands for you. Circuitous Route, Harrow, Roiling Regrowth, Search for Tomorrow, and Dire-Strain Rampage are all very good ramp effects, with most of them being cheap and able to find you colours of mana you might need. Sacrificing a land can be a good thing if you've got several of the same Basic land, which can happen easily. There are a ton of other ramp spells, many quite cheap, especially if you don't mind 3 mana effects. Spells that find land can be much better than artifacts, because artifacts can be blown up very easily compared to lands. I would also look for ones that can find any Basic land compared to ones that can only find a Forest unless you want to raise the budget a bit, as these lands are generally more expensive, but Kaldheim has 10 Snow type dual lands, one for each pair, and they are fairly cheap, and ramping with one of these off of Three Visits or Nature's Lore feels really good, but it'll be more investment. There are a lot of effects that find Forests and can find non-Basic Forests like Breeding Pool or Rimewood Falls, and finding one of those can really help make sure you can cast Tiamat. I would still play cards like Arcane Signet and Sol Ring, and most 2 MV mana artifacts are good cards usually.

A card that should be very useful in Tiamat would be Maskwood Nexus, which makes all creatures, wherever they are (in your hand, library, graveyard, or in play) are all every creature type, including Dragons, so Tiamat can find any 5 creatures. If you end up playing many cards that care about Dragons, this is worth looking at. Silverglade Pathfinder and Dreamscape Artist are pretty helpful some games as creatures that can also ramp you, potentially repeatedly if you are playing Casual games where you have a few more turns.

Interaction to protect your creatures can be very useful, Bolt Bend and Stubborn Denial are interesting options for you in a deck that will often have a power 4 creature out. Disdainful Stroke can stop board wipes, and Saw it Coming can stop anything in it's track, involving only U to cast, I would watch out for counterspells that cost UU (Blue Blue mana) to cast, this can be hard to arrange. You might think of Vindicate and/or Utter End to have removal vs any type of permanent, AFAIK neither is very expensive atm. There are 5 'Signet lands', Darkwater Catacombs, Skycloud Expanse, Shadowblood Ridge, Mossfire Valley and Sungrass Prairie are all very cheap and pretty good dual lands. Ash Barrens is a very good way to find a needed colour, especially Green. The World Tree is getting up there a bit, but it's a card worth looking at in 5 colours, especially if you run plenty of cards that find lands for you. If you have especially good non-Basic lands, IE lands that tap for 2 or more, Crop Rotation, Hour of Promise and Reap and Sow are all worth considering, finding a World Tree or other especially good land can be much stronger than finding a Basic. Faeburrow Elder and Jegantha, the Wellspring are very good ways to generate mana, probably don't run Jegantha as a Companion, just put him in the deck and you have no restrictions from him.

Well, that's what I'm thinking of right now, I'll probably have more later for you. I'll try to think of cards that are cheap and work for your deck, it might be a few posts before I've run out of relevant thoughts.

Hey, welcome to TappedOut.

Your deck doesn't have a Commander. To make Obuun, Mul Daya Ancestor the Commander then go into the deck editor. In the text list of cards find Obuun, Mul Daya Ancestor and add the CMDR tag at the end.

Obuun, Mul Daya Ancestor *CMDR*

Save and Obuun will appear in Commander category with a card image.


On a budget well done so far, nice Jeweled Lotus. Command Tower and Arcane Signet are two budget staples for Commander to consider adding. Since Obuun can put +1/+1 counters on himself to make himself a threat to do Commander damage then having more sources of evasion helps. Garruk's Uprising is a great budget card that gives all creatures you control trample as well as can be a repeatable draw source whenever a 4 or more power creature you control ETB including creating a creature token such as from Omnath, Locus of Rage.

For $5 Moraug, Fury of Akoum is a really good landfall effect for extra attacks. Druid Class starts with the static effect of gaining 1 life each time a land you control ETB. It has two other levels; level 2 is if you pay three mana you get the effect of being able to play an additional land. This effect is static, it stays as long as you control the Class. Level 3 for five mana you make a land into a potentially high power/toughness creature and you also get to keep the other Level effects. With the classes you don't lose the previous effects when you level up.

You're playing the Guildgates for Circuitous Route, but other than the interaction with Route Guildgates are not good lands since even on a budget there's better options. You could replace the Guildgates with Glade and Vista and replace Route with Skyshroud Claim which can search for Glade and Vista and put them potentially onto the battlefield untapped.


Some upgrades to consider:

If interested I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.
