Destiny Spinner

Destiny Spinner

Enchantment Creature — Human

Creature and enchantment spells you control can't be countered.

: Target land you control becomes an X/X Elemental creature with trample and haste until end of turn, where X is the number of enchantments you control. It's still a land.

grimcase21 on Varolz, the Scar-Striped EDH - Competitive

1 month ago

If you are still looking to improve the deck, I've also been working on this deck for a long long time (when the card came out). I've always like the voltron big swing style as it was unique to commander, but my deck is solely for 1v1 and does not work very well in multiplayer. Here is a list of cards that I would recommend that have worked wonders for me.

Budget options

Tainted Strike - 2nd berserk (if you're ok with infect)

Belt of Giant Strength - after you scavenge, 2 mana equipment, free equip for another 8 power

Not of This World - my secret tech, after you make it big it's free

Veil of Summer - with this style of deck protection is very important

Sylvan Safekeeper - free protection that they constantly have to respect Wild Shape - flexible, mostly used for hexproof or trample

Jarad's Orders - the 2nd best tutor after buried alive, because there will be 2 creatures you always search for and it's on curve. you always look for Elvish Spirit Guide and Phyrexian Dreadnought. Phyrexian Dreadnought goes to graveyard and Elvish Spirit Guide goes to hand, exile, scavenge, swing with 14 power on turn 3-4.

Unmarked Grave - entomb #2

Demonic Embrace - you can entomb this and give you commander evasion and +3/+1.

Bramblewood Paragon - play this turn 2, minor buff counter, and gives trample because Varolz, the Scar-Striped is a warrior

Rancor - buff and trample, you need to get through

Destiny Spinner - one of the few ways green has to fight counters

Solidarity of Heroes - 2 mana double the 12/13 counters

Wild Growth - it may not be a creature, but it does get our commander out on turn 2

Mausoleum Secrets - 2 mana instant demonic tutor, you sac a dork in response, go find Phyrexian Dreadnought/Death's Shadow, protection spell, or in 99% of cases that I use this one is Berserk

Non-budget additions

Elvish Spirit Guide - serves 2 purposes, the Jarad's Orders trick and making all your turn 2 plays turn 1 (like Sylvan Library), you can also end the Survival of the Fittest chain with elvish spirit guide to do the same trick

Sylvan Safekeeper - free protection that they must always respect, it's very good

Collective Brutality - I value discard highly in 1v1. It also allows you to ditch your scavenge target from your hand to the graveyard while seeing the coast is clear. But in multiplayer, less useful.

Lightning Greaves - haste and protection, yes plz

Dismember - takes care of many of the early problematic targets

super non-budget

Hatred - 1 card win with commander

Necropotence - sculpt your hand for next turn kill

Cards that I would recommend reconsidering/taking out

Harmonize - a bit too slow imo

Arbor Elf - the amount of targets you actually have isn't enough to make it consistent

Asceticism - a bit too slow, you only care about the creature you scavenge on so in terms of mana efficiency something like Sylvan Safekeeper or Lightning Greaves

Quirion Elves/Devoted Druid - we want to go 1->3 mana, so we get our commander out on turn 2, this doesn't help to do that

AstroAA on How do you build Karametra?

1 month ago

I used to run a Karametra, God of Harvests combo deck ages ago when Paradox Engine was legal. I updated it last summer, but it's still kind of mediocre and I would definitely redo it again if I had any interest in the deck. Regardless, if you're interested - my decklist is here:

I did not go with the landfall mechanic as I'm not particularly a fan of it outside of Lotus Cobra. IMO she's best built abusing ETB triggers with cards like Aluren and Cloudstone Curio.

Cards like Whitemane Lion, Kor Skyfisher, and Emancipation Angel are absolutely phenomenal in Karametra. They bounce themselves, allowing you to play them again and get more lands. With Aluren out, you can get every single Forest/Plains out of your deck in a single turn.

Cards like Wall of Blossoms and Wall of Omens are great with Aluren + Cloudstone Curio because you could essentially draw your entire deck in one go. Albeit you'd need to be careful and specify how far you should go with this otherwise you'd deck yourself, but that's beyond the point - still a powerful draw effect.

With Aluren, Cards like Sandsteppe Outcast and Hanged Executioner are awesome for getting an arbitrarily large number of tokens, as the token on the ETB effect can bounce the creature that generated it with Cloudstone Curio. This can pay out in several different ways - mainly infinite mana with Ashnod's Altar and/or Phyrexian Altar through sacing the token, and infinite damage/winning the game on the spot with Blasting Station and sacing the token. You could also create infinite tokens with Oketra's Monument and any of the self-bounce creatures if you just have Aluren out.

I also really liked cards like Reveillark, Renegade Rallier, Destiny Spinner, Eternal Witness, Aura Shards, Bygone Bishop, Temur Sabertooth, and Rhonas's Monument.

Personally, if you wanted to play a straight-up ETB combo deck, I think Trostani, Selesnya's Voice is a better general due to having far easier access to using Aetherflux Reservoir, (generate a ton of life with Aluren + Whitemane Lion, shoot people with the Death Star). Karametra, God of Harvests is nice for land filtering, but you only run so many lands in the deck she becomes kind of useless later on in the game - hence why I've kind of lost interest in her. In addition, what TypicalTimmy said is very true - if you rush out to an early lead in lands with her, you often become a target. IF you wanted to build Karametra, God of Harvests still, I would highly recommend going combo and including a myriad of methods to win - such as combat damage, Walking Ballista combos, and Blasting Station combos.

Kamerot on The crushing jaws of a howling slaybeast

Hey there, I'm a big fan of the premise of your deck. I've always liked goreclaw, she's a fun card. With that said, I do have some suggestions:

  • Prowling Serpopard -> Allosaurus Shepherd/Destiny Spinner - if your budget allows, shepherd is the better choice, but both are upgrades to serpopard.
  • Veteran Explorer -> Arbor Elf - without a dedicated sac outlet, there is no guarantee you can get explorer in the graveyard in a timely manner, plus it helps all of your opponents. Since you're running both ashaya and yavimaya, arbor elf can potentially untap all of your big mana engines, plus it's an elf and benefits Priest of Titania.
  • Myojin of Life's Web -> Argothian Elder - myojin was always lackluster for me, plus you can't cheat it out. The elder is an elf which again will help priests, plus with ashaya, It goes infinite which is great with all the big fatties you're running.
  • See the Unwritten -> Selvala's Stampede - for the same cmc, you get a much better spell that doesn't make you pitch anything to the graveyard. And what's great about Stampede, it gets better with the more opponents you have. Just make sure you keep a couple of permanents in your hand to cover any way your opponents vote.
  • Those are the big suggestions I have to make at first glance. Here's some other good options for card advantage if you ever find yourself running out of steam.

  • Beast Whisperer
  • Guardian Project
  • Rishkar's Expertise
  • Hope this all helps, and good luck!

    Mono green deck that’s creature focused…

    Allosaurus Shepherd

    Destiny Spinner

    Augur of Autumn

    Runic Armasaur

    This is mono-green…drop the mana rocks for better mana dorks and land auras to bolster that creature count and maintain a low mana curve. This opens up the avenue to use Collector Ouphe and Null Rod to cripple most players ramp and board capabilities. Rocks with static effects like Emerald Medallion should stay as they’ll not be effected.

    Sylvan Library and The Great Henge are drawing staples.

    Your land count is extremely low and your using token generators that rely on land fall. Get rid of Ghalta, Primal Hunger and use Ashaya, Soul of the Wild. This will add better synergy and take up the lack of lands to create more triggers on landfall.

    Tamiyo's Safekeeping works well here as a backup to Heroic Intervention.

    Druid of Purification and Scavenging Ooze are also great additions for utility.

    For our main win, I would make sure we max out our draw and mana fixing, see if there's anything we can add in the budget that protects our enchants on board and/or adds recursion redundancy, and enables us to use their effects more. Ramp and fixing like Abundant Growth, Urban Utopia, Mana Bloom, and Fertile Ground may look unimpressive, but they are very helpful. Sanctum Weaver is an obvious call-out for this spot. Card draw/tutoring will be helpful to find the correct mana and the right shrines. We're missing a few relatively budget enchantresses Yavimaya Enchantress and Enchantress's Presence. Moon-Blessed Cleric is a cheap tutor to smooth things out as well. Protective pieces can be pricey (Privileged Position and Greater Auramancy, I'm looking at you) but there are a few good budget options we missed like Destiny Spinner, Resurgent Belief and Alchemist's Refuge. Finally, there are a few creative ways we can duplicate some of our triggers that we missed. Paradox Haze and Sphinx of the Second Sun will duplicate the effects of many of our 'old' shrines that trigger at the beginning of our upkeep. If we can get rid of legendary with Mirror Box (or a few more pricey options like Sakashima of a Thousand Faces, we can duplicate our shrines with Estrid's Invocation, Mirrormade, and Clever Impersonator.

    Secondary win, I would find things that make our creatures more effective. Cards like Bastion of Remembrance and The Meathook Massacre (though this may stay simply because it's a board clear as well) are going to be less impressive without sacrifice outlets. You could add a few...but those don't synergize well with your deck I feel. I would go with enters triggers instead like Impact Tremors and Purphoros, God of the Forge if you happen to have one. A pump or two may be nice as well...my vote goes to Dictate of Heliod since it can be a surprise...and buffs both your enchantment and non-enchantment creatures.

    For cuts, then, I would look to higher-mana things and/or things that don't fit into these categories such as Pharika, God of Affliction, Bastion of Remembrance, Felidar Retreat, Callaphe, Beloved of the Sea, Muldrotha, the Gravetide
