Iamdune on Golos, Tireless Pilgrim

20 hours ago

Hey, nice token/flying theme deck! I've been playing Golos, Tireless Pilgrim in a lot of different variations for a long time, but nothing like this one! I do have a few suggestions though:

Nyx Lotus you will find is very ineffective in a deck with this much color variety. There are much better mana rocks for 5 color.

Unless you add a lot of card draw or tutor land to hand cards, you will rarely find yourself with more than one land in hand past about the 3-4th round. As such I'd suggest removing Azusa, Lost but Seeking

I wasn't able to figure out what you intended to use Morophon, the Boundless for?

Ugin, the Spirit Dragon Seems an odd choice to me as its most commonly used ability will exile all your stuff as well. Most tokens have a color even though they are not cast.

Prismatic Omen is always worth consideration in a 5 color deck, even with Chromatic Lantern, Chromatic Orrery, and Dryad of the Ilysian Grove. Anything to increase odds of mana fixing is huge in Golos imo.

I'd make sure you get a Command Tower, and a Cascading Cataracts in for sure, even if you don't want to put in more of the higher cost all color lands like City of Brass and such.

Like I said, this is completely different from any of the many ways I ever built Golos. Love to know how it plays for you! He is my favorite commander. I've done everything from Eldrazi (or otherwise big stompy stuff) theme, to full out tutors for infinite combos, to Maze's End/Scapeshift combo with a side of Door to Nothingness, to stealing all my opponents stuff themes...so many options!

As for black, Greed is very solid.

If you've got the mana, Vilis, Broker of Blood is absolutely dirty. Cards such as Blood Crypt now say "Untap this land and draw two cards" which is horrifically powerful, as well as cards such as Prismatic Vista, Sulfurous Springs, Ancient Tomb, Mana Crypt and literally every single fetch land that makes you search for either a Swamp or a Mountain. Oh also City of Brass.

Drawing for using lands. God I love it.

Throw a little love in with Whip of Erebos / Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord to help recover some life.

And The Cauldron of Eternity allows you to recover creatures, as well as Whip of Erebos.

Aha I see the pain lands, shock lands, and the temples! But why not cut a heck lot of those basics and add some better lands? Maybe consider some of the following.

Hey there! I might be able to give you some suggestions though whether they are helpful or not I'm not sure. Let's start off with lands.

Basics aren't BAD but there are SO many options that could be better than them, and personally I don't think its worth it to run that many of them when there are those better options. I would consider some of the following! (If you have the budget)

Now usually that's all I help people with, but I can't help but noticing you don't run a Ophidian Eye! It could be a whole other wincon since it goes infinite, and I'd definitely recommend it to all Niv Mizzet players, right along side curisoity and tandem lookout which you already run.

So in the end, I definitely would consider most of the ramp, nearly all the lands, and definitely ophidian. I promise your deck will perform MUCH better with these additions, and though some of them are investments, they are VERY helpful. If this does help you be sure to check out and upvote some of my decks, I would appreciate it! (Double Trouble EDH)! Anyways, I hope this helps, good luck on your deck, and have a great day!

Masterful on Necronomicon | Teysa Karlov | Primer

sub780lime I haven't had many problems with Reflecting Pool or Exotic Orchard's consistency, so I prefer them over the forced life loss from City of Brass and Mana Confluence. In some testing I've done with these painlands, there were instances where the life loss mattered, especially when it came to low-life razaketh/necropotence usage. Ultimately, it doesn't matter much, and I would understand swapping them based on preference. In playgroups that rarely play white and/or black, orchard is bad, and reflecting pool gets worse the less lands we have. For me, they've performed better than the painlands on average.

In terms of Austere Command, everything's a bit hard to trim from. For the sac outlets, unfortunately 5 of them are inconsistent (High Market, Victimize, etc.), and one of them is 8 mana. Additionally, the inconsistent ones are in the deck for reasons other than being sac outlets. The cards I'm considering the most are Victimize, Phyrexian Reclamation, and Living Death, but I'm still not sure I'd want austere command instead of any one of these cards.

Thanks for the input!

Hey! Maybe consider some land upgrades? Having a budget like that but still having tap lands doesn't really work out XD. Maybe consider some of these:

Good lands can help a deck out a LOT and these are some of the most useful ones that fit in your deck. I would consider each and every one of them, and I promise your deck will perform MUCH better! If this helps be sure to check out and upvote some of my decks, (Double Trouble EDH), and give me suggestions if you have any! Anyways, hope this helps, good luck on your deck, and have a great day!

Ah nice deck! I have a couple of suggestions you might appreciate. The first one revolves around your lands and ramp. Personally, I believe the following should have a spot in your deck.

Anyway, there are many ways to go infinite with Emiel, and I recommend checking them out if your into that sort of thing. Also do consider the land and ramp options, they could help you out a ton! If this does help you out be sure to check out some of my decks, (Double Trouble EDH), upvote them if you like them, and give me feedback if you want! Anyways, I hope this helps you out, good luck on your deck, (unicorns are amazing!) and have a great day!

Hey there! No problem, and you have definitely come to the right place! Here are some types of lands that I personally think should have a spot in every deck, and some multi-colored lands that work anywhere and everywhere! I hope this helps you throughout your journey in the world of magic.

These dual lands are some of the best, and my favorites, though there are many more people enjoy playing, such as bounce ladnds (Dimir Aqueduct), Battle Lands (Sunken Hollow), Reveal Lands, (Port Town), Cycle Lands (Irrigated Farmland), Storage Lands (Calciform Pools) and many others, but usually you don't have this many spaces in your deck, and so the ones I named first are usually better. However, I'm not done! There are many multicolor lands that fit in any deck, that are extremely powerful! Some of them are listed below.
