As it stands this deck is pretty solid. I can't believe I forgot to put Inquisitor's Flail in my Tahngarth deck. Biiig commander damage. The nice thing about voltron is you really can't seem to go wrong with your cards. A big fella is a big fella, doesn't matter how expensive your cards are lol.

Anyway there are really only a few changes I'd consider making. Your utility creatures could be subbed out. Normally having a body along with your removal is pretty nice, but in a deck like this I don't think it's worth the extra mana since you're getting a ton of little tree things all the time anyway. I'd also swap out Colossus Hammer since it's usually only good when you can cheat it onto something, like with Hammer of Nazahn. You can really replace these with whatever you want since you already have a nice spread of ramp and buffs and removal etc.

Cards you might like here are Brass Squire, Canopy Cover, Cindervines, Mask of Memory, and Regal Force to name a few. Couldn't hurt to throw in some wipes like Earthquake and Rolling Earthquake just in case either.

Now you just gotta figure out which one you're gonna put together. ;^)

ellie-is on Kykar's Tokens & Cantrips

Peoni: I can definitely let those go! I agree with all your points on them :)

Do you have any suggestions on what to put in once they're out?

Cyclonic Rift is definitely out of reach, Wrath of God I could see myself adding not long after the deck has been assembled, but Earthquake seems great until then!

Wear sounds great too, right now I have nothing to deal with either permanents or artifacts.

I'm also thinking of adding Banishing Knack as an extra Retraction Helix, what do you think?

TriusMalarky: Thanks for the comment! I like those two cards a lot too.

I'm definitely going for a token horde, but I'll keep those storm cards in mind, Empty the Warrens in particular seems like it could be great to have.

I had also been thinking about how I should have more red cantrips to take advantage of Kykar's sacrifice ability, I'm gonna look over the other-colored ones later and see what I can replace with red.

In regards to lands, they're all cheap individually but getting all of them for under $3 each is still gonna come down to nearly $30 lol. (also only one of them is under $3 and most are actually around $5 right now!). I'm definitely gonna upgrade the mana base over time and it'll be a big priority once I have the rest of the deck, but I'm gonna do those purchases separately so it's not as big an impact on my wallet.

So the ones I'm leaning towards are Assemble the Legion, Sram's Expertise, and a buff or two of your choice, maybe Spear of Heliod and Goldnight Commander.

Assemble I feel lacks synergy with the rest of your token generation and it costs a lot for what it does. Eventually it'll accumulate a lot of counters and pump out an absurd number of little dudes every turn, but that'll take some time to get there, and there's a good chance it'll get blown up before it does.

Sram's I'm iffy about. It's 2 spells in 1 but it's also just a one time token generator where you could have something potentially more impactful but idk. That's really gonna be up to you.

The buffs I feel are nice but potentially unnecessary. The way I see it they could potentially end up being win more cards as you'll probably be able to flood the board with little creatures and win that way (or at least be able to hold until you have your combo pieces), but at the same time it's worth keeping some in just in case you need the little extra oomph to beat someone down. That's why I'm leaving it at 1 or 2 of them, so it's up to you which ones you want in and how many you want to take out.

I'd suggest swapping out Mizzium Mortars for another boardwipe. If Wrath and Cyclonic Rift are out of reach for now, Earthquake is a solid option that misses Kykar and your spirits, can also hit players, and serves as a potential mana sink. There's also Sublime Exhalation, basically just Wrath in EDH minus the no regen clause.

Finally you might also like some artifact/enchantment hate with Wear. Never hurts to have options.

If you end up making more changes and still want to modify what you have, then we can keep going from there. :^)

multimedia on The Ur-Dragon CMDR (help needed)

Hey, you're welcome.

Draknoz already said anthem effects, Crucible and Door, that pump Dragons are not really needed because Dragons are already have big power and flying. An exception could be if you add Dragon Broodmother, Mystery Booster version. These types of anthem effects could be cut for draw sources such as Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner since draw would be overall more helpful. Dragonlord Ojutai, Mystery Booster version, can be repeatable Anticipate, card advantage. Being able to choose one from three cards can be nice on a budget and she's also a 4 drop 5/4 Dragon.

If a mana dork can't make more than one color than I don't think on a budget it's good enough to play with five colors. To consistently be able to take advantage of one drop mana dorks you need lots of lands that can ETB untapped to make green mana turn one. This manabase because on a budget doesn't have that. If you ever upgrade the manabase with Shocks, Fetches and some Pains then some one drop mana dorks could be added.

Faeburrow Elder and Paradise Druid are fine budget mana dork options for five colors. Either one could replace Pillar of Origins. Mana Geode is the worst three drop mana rock here and there's quite a few of them. It could be cut for Idyllic Tutor to get Tempest or Ascendancy.

If having trouble with opponent board states of little creatures attacking you then consider some budget damage spells and more lower mana cost Dragons? Earthquake and Rolling Earthquake, Double Masters version, for damage spells and Earthquake doesn't hurt Dragons. Thunderbreak Regent is a three drop 4/4 Dragon, Glorybringer is a four drop 4/4 Dragon who can potentially kill a creature the turn you play it with exert and Kiora has interaction with exert. These Dragons could replace Numot, the Devastator and Mana-Charged Dragon.

Peoyogon on Grudge-Bearer's Revenge

Hmm. Well, I suppose it really depends on how you want to focus your deck. I can see three paths here: 1 you leave the deck mostly as it is - 2 you take out more of your dusters/sweepers and focus on damage from creatures to win - or 3 you take out creatures and add more board control cards (including more dusters/sweepers and punishment cards).

I have a monored deck that, while very different than this, went down the later route. It is geared more towards a lockdown strategy and uses cards like Earthquake, Fault Line, Molten Disaster, and Comet Storm. Because these are global effects, I have few creatures and those that I do have are very expendable. This deck also plays punishment cards like Spellshock, Burning Earth, and Price of Glory to get in chip damage throughout the match (which also pairs ver, very nicely with damage doublers!).

Red also has glorious land control to help balance against explosive ramp. Along with ruination and blood moon, you could run Boil and Wildfire if you are interested in that. I don't run these personally but they are quite good. Do remember that these are salty cards though and maybe bring it up with other players before the match and be prepared to swap the cards or play a different deck if you end up using a lot of mass land destruction.

Hope this helps a little??

FormOverFunction on theoretically worst deck

Step one: pick a theme that is pervasive in the M:tG sets, but isn’t well-directed or specifically-purposed. Let’s say, for example, natural disasters. Step two: choose the most themely cards for each of the five different colors. No creatures.
Step three: add basic-only lands for each of the five land types. Step four: choose a ridiculous WURBG legendary creature. Step five: attempt to outrun your opponents in damage, maybe with spells like Lightning Bolt, while you Hurricane/Earthquake/Pestilence everyone to zero. This is only a hypothetical, of course. No one should ever do this.

jaymc1130 I'm honestly going to have to invest in Muddle the Mixture that's some affordable tech right there lol. As is, my play group frowns on infinite combos, but allows this one for me because I don't run a way to tutor for it, and when it happens I'm doing big things, like creating a million 1/1 spirits and killing with Impact Tremors, or casting it a million times to Aetherflux Reservoir everyone to death, or drawing my while deck with Whirlwind of Thought, Jeskai Ascendancy, Chromatic Orrery, or Idol of Oblivion and winning with Jace, Wielder of Mysteries, or drawing out Approach of the Second Sun twice, or if I'm feeling particularly cheesy I'll make a million mana and draw the game with Earthquake. I just love how unlike most infinite combos it lets me win the game in a bunch of crazy ways and I love the fact that the cards are amazing on their own, if my group asks me not to use the infinite combo I'll just slap a counterspell on that bad boy and get real mean lol

Maybe consider Subterranean Tremors as an option for Earthquake.
