Decimator of the Provinces

Creature — Eldrazi

Emerge 6 (You may cast this spell by sacrificing a creature and paying the emerge cost reduced by that creature's converted mana cost.)

When you cast Decimator of the Provinces, creatures you control get +2/+2 and gain trample until end of turn.

I think Hand of Emrakul, Decimator of the Provinces, Kozilek, the Great Distortion, and Pathrazer of Ulamog are too expensive to cast / commander ability for what they do. Some replacement examples would be: Terastodon, Void Winnower, Fleshbag Marauder, Noxious Gearhulk, Ravenous Chupacabra, Plaguecrafter, Eternal Witness, It That Betrays, Woodfall Primus, Acidic Slime, Ob Nixilis, Unshackled, Sepulchral Primordial, Overseer of the Damned, etc.

cards like Dalek Squadron with a sac outlet will get you a lot of Meren counters quickly. cards like Greater Good are great at filling your graveyard and your hand. cards like Oversold Cemetery are great for your low mana creatures and late game expensive creatures. Tragic Slip isn't a very good card for multiplayer commander, unless you are using something like Isochron Scepter

I think your deck is a little heavy on creature token generators, especially your creatures. I know they are there to build up tokens on Meren and to generate mana, in the early game, but they aren't doing much in the mid to late game. Maybe replace a few with some faster reanimator spells like: Living Death, Lifeline (a personal favorite), Necromancy, Animate Dead, Victimize, Rescue from the Underworld, Beacon of Unrest, etc.

Other cards I would consider cutting: Skullbriar, the Walking Grave (too slow imo unless he is your commander), Blisterpod (needs to die to get the token), Pawn of Ulamog, Vorapede, Village Rites, Gray Merchant of Asphodel (starts to shine with lots of reanimator stuff), Woe Strider, Scion Summoner, Brood Monitor, Deathreap Ritual, Commander's Sphere

It's tough to suggest cards for a budget deck. A card that I might consider to be absolutely necessary could require cheaper options in other parts of the deck to make it fit.

Hey Zorke,

Ok based on your comment about the combo, I'm basing these recommendations on a:

Tuned tier - Power level 5 (6 usually has a combo) - Win before Turn 14 - "Upgraded Precon". Visual Guide to Power Levels in EDH.

-- Land Base -- Prioritize untapped, Mana colors, Target 33: +Shivan Reef -Island +Yavimaya Coast -Forest +City of Brass -Aether Hub +Mana Confluence -Mountain Valley +Riverglide Pathway  Flip -Simic Growth Chamber +Rootbound Crag -Mountain +Hinterland Harbor -Forest +Sulfur Falls -Mountain +Rejuvenating Springs -Path of Ancestry +Training Center -Rogue's Passage +Spire Garden -Ancient Ziggurat +Boseiju, Who Endures -Island

--Ramp-- Creature preferred +Birds of Paradise -Thought Vessel +Three Visits -Heraldic Banner +The Great Henge -Gilded Lotus (Also important for draw) +Farseek -Harvest Season

--Morph-- +Kadena's Silencer -Stuffy Doll +Icefeather Aven -Keep Safe (Morph flavor) +Echo Tracer -Omnath, Locus of Mana (Morph flavor) +Mistfire Weaver -Forsaken Monument (Morph flavor) +Jeering Instigator -Shaleskin Plower (Morph flavor less salt)

--Draw-- +Fathom Seer -Zendikar Resurgent +Temur Ascendancy -Tomb of the Spirit Dragon +Tishana, Voice of Thunder -Ashcloud Phoenix +Guardian Project -Tidespout Tyrant +Toski, Bearer of Secrets -Fabricate +Garruk's Uprising -Creeping Renaissance

--Offense other than Animar-- +Garruk's Horde -Forest +Artisan of Kozilek -Island +Bane of Bala Ged -Trophy Mage (Pulls 1 unneeded artifact!) +Shrieking Drake -Temur Sabertooth (Non-Infinite Ancestral Statue) +Decimator of the Provinces -Temur War Shaman

--Control-- +Beast Within -Fog

I've left out some salty card for this power level: Cyclonic Rift Ancestral Statue Craterhoof Behemoth Rhystic Study Mystic Remora Dockside Extortionist

Special mention (would need to playtest): Secret Plans (Draw) Solemn Simulacrum (Ramp & Draw) Mulldrifter (Draw) Trail of Mystery (Ramp) Rhythm of the Wild (Don't think you'll see heavy counterspell in power 5)

Could go more less if needed Theres other stuff I didn't suggest because of the morph theme, like Cloud of Faeries, Hullbreaker Horror, Fierce Empath etc.

Hopefully you find some useful ideas here.

Cool deck!!!
I like that you run from beyond, that card is great. But you could run an eldrazi like Desolation Twin so you have a creature to tutor and you get a 10/10 to populate. Or Decimator of the Provinces maybe too, there are so many good eldrazi.
Anyway, other cool cards could be Cathars' Crusade, and Spirit Mantle for tana so shes unblockable, and Krosan Verge can ramp and fetch duals.
Anyway just some thoughts, cheers and have fun!!!

Lord_of_Cardboard I'm pretty sure sideboard is incldued in the cost, so ignore that. I never pay attention to the tappedout price because it's usually inaccurate and averages the price of a card based on all its printings. Don't worry about a land base, given it's very easy nowadays to budget one efficiently. In a deck based around ETB, it's very easy to budget. If there's a card that's a little pricey, like Craterhoof Behemoth, there are budget alternatives. While landing a hoof with two triggers nearly always ends the game, using a similar card like Decimator of the Provinces or End-Raze Forerunners works just fine. Even just using EDHrec and filtering the most popular cards to be cheap will give you a better idea of what other people do to budget their lists. Do what you can to ensure you have a consistent mana base, a way to ensure your mana base stays efficient with cards like Farseek or even Skyshroud Claim, a decent amount of removal (preferably in the form of ETB from cards like Reclamation Sage and Ravenous Chupacabra), and having ETB effects on nearly every creature or even every permanent in your deck. In my opinion, if you were to buy a nicer card or two for this deck above the $10 range, Birds of Paradise is a must-have mana dork in a multicolor deck, and Field of the Dead will give you an insane amount of creatures with little to no effort. Keep in mind this list is based around Birthing Pod, so that card and the others like it are a bare necessity. If you want to push your list more towards blink or landfall, by all means, go crazy. This is just my iteration of a very popular and flexible commander.

Hi Romer,

Interesting take on elfball tribal. Have you thought of using Umbral Mantle to help with infinite mana combo? providing you have an elf that can tap for 4 mana (not too hard with Marwyn, the Nurturer or Elvish Archdruid), you will always net a positive mana outcome.

Also, whilst I know Big Hoof!!! is off the table, what about something like Decimator of the Provinces or End-Raze Forerunners? Combine any trample effect with a Binding the Old Gods (which is awesome and should be considered for your deck) final part of the saga, that interaction between Deathtouch and Trample is usually a game over situation.

Will be really interested to see all the changes you make. From 1 elf player to another, +1 all day :)

Missed opportunity to use Decimator of the Provinces . I'd definitely use that over Nylea. And maybe Brawn to be milled.

I'm changing my version of this but thought I'd share.

damn 40 elves thats a lot of elves. Honestly this is a fine deck if you're looking for a weaker precon style deck, and lathril definitely is really strong as is.

However if you are looking to eventually make it stronger, id drop down to around 30ish of the better elves so you can fit in more card draw and removal and finishers. Adding in more of the one drop elves like Llanowar Elves , Fyndhorn Elves , Elves of Deep Shadow , Boreal Druid to have a better shot at turn one ramp.

adding more finishers like craterhoof behemoth would also increase some consistency. budget behemoths include Decimator of the Provinces , End-Raze Forerunners .

and ya more basic black and green card draw and more removal would be good to refresh your hand after you dump all your elves on the field
