Baron_Pretzels I've just updated the deck with a maybeboard added as well.

I had to keep Esior, Wardwing Familiar as my blue creature card at the end as it has flying and gives a bit of protection for the Commander.

Baron_Pretzels okay. The reason I put some of the cards in is because it's not just the multicolour but I also wanted each solo colour to be represented by at least one creature and one spell:

CREATURE

White: Sisay, Weatherlight Captain, Odric, Lunarch Marshal

Blue: Esior, Wardwing Familiar

Black: Drana, Liberator of Malakir

Red: Kari Zev, Skyship Raider

Green: Sakura-Tribe Elder, Fallaji Wayfarer, Esika, God of the Tree  Flip, Kolvori, God of Kinship  Flip

SPELL

White: Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Urza's Ruinous Blast

Blue: Negate

Black: Yawgmoth's Vile Offering

Red: Mana Cannons

Green: Beast Within, Kodama's Reach, Cultivate, Farseek, Nature's Lore

Another Blue creature I was thinking was Fblthp, the Lost

Reason I put The World Tree was probably cause I've put Esika in.

Jaroc249 I'd recommend cutting The World Tree because you don't have that many gods and maybe Kari Zev, Skyship Raider and Esior, Wardwing Familiar because they're not that great.

BTW I forgot to mention for the multicolored aspect, I recommend Pillar of the Paruns, Vivid Revival, and Supply / Demand

Kret on Tawnos plays Jumanji

I'd definitely add Ulvenwald Oddity  Flip -> 2 hasty 4/4 creatures that can also give haste to all your birds and beasts in the late game.
Indrik Stomphowler is a little overpriced but your deck lacks removal spells so I think this could work here.
Consider Anara, Wolvid Familiar and Esior, Wardwing Familiar. They are legenday so Tawnos won't copy them but they are reasonably costed and provide protection for your commander.
The last thing that I'd change is your ramp. You're in simic -> colour that has the best ramp in the game. I would cut all mana producing artifacts and instead play cards that put more lands onto the battlefield like Rampant Growth, Farseek, Nature's Lore, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Nissa's Pilgrimage, Skyshroud Claim, Explore, Growth Spiral, Joint Exploration or Broken Bond.
If you cut all the mana rocks for land ramp you can also run the new card Fade from History.

Gambler's Fallacy

Enchantment

Whenever a player flips a coin, they lose that flip. When you lose a coin flip this way, target player loses 1 life and you lose 1 life. (Each player is a loser for as long as Gambler's Fallacy remains on the battlefield.)

"Come on, I'm due for a win!"


Create a familiar. It can be like the X-scape Familiar cycle (Thornscape Familiar), the Commander Familiar cycle (Esior, Wardwing Familiar), or something else (Jackal Familiar).

SithLord on Birb Storm

There are very few birds to be found here. Odd, because this is a tribal bird theme deck. You aren't even running Maskwood Nexus or Arcane Adaptation

So here are some birds I found that would be fun to play:

Derevi, Empyrial Tactician

Augury Owl

Arctic Aven

Falcon Abomination

Aetherstorm Roc

Apex Hawks

Aven Brigadier !!!!!

Aven Gagglemaster

Aven Mindcensor

Aven Squire

Aven Wind Guide

Bay Falcon

Celestial Gatekeeper !

Airborne Aid !

Battle Screech !

Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle !

Steel-Plume Marshal !

Emeria Angel

Judge's Familiar

Skycat Sovereign

Cloudchaser Kestrel

Healer's Hawk

Esior, Wardwing Familiar

Skyway Robber

River Hoopoe

Donal, Herald of Wings

Whippoorwill an exile for so little the cost

Storm Crow why isn't this here?

Spire Owl cheap, but nice

Jubilant Skybonder

Sephara, Sky's Blade this hits the field by turn 4 for 1 white mana!

Ledger Shredder badass name and badass ability

Cartographer's Hawk a fun card that empties your deck of plains

Watcher of the Spheres dude

Flurry of Wings and Settle the Wreckage There is so much fun to be had

Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker_ look at this scawwwwww _ Warden of Evos Isle not needed, but nice for making 5 mana birds cost less

Empyrean Eagle lord

Kangee, Sky Warden all it takes is one 1/1 bird token to scwwwaaa

Kangee, Aerie Keeper you can't run one bird and not have any feathers ay?

Shabraz, the Skyshark its a sharknado

High Sentinels of Arashin use your mana ramp to buff your army

Nimble Obstructionist _a tale's end _

GolgariGravedigger on Kels, Fight Fixer Budget EDH

11 months ago

Nice list! This is the first budget list I've seen in a while that's actually inexpensive. I wonder if Kels could use a little budget friendly protection. Blessing of Leeches, Kaya's Ghostform, Esior, Wardwing Familiar, and/or Winged Boots could be some good options. Also Ornithopter of Paradise is a pretty solid mana dork. Maybe Shambling Ghast since it makes a treasure when it dies. And Sol Ring might be worth the extra $1.60. Very cool deck. I might have to brew my own version of Kels.

KBK7101 on Rare commander build?

1 year ago

I have decks for each of the Amonkhet gods (Bontu is the only one that's public), which all have pitiful EDHREC ranks. Like griffstick, I have a Multani, Maro-Sorcerer deck that's one of my favorites.

The commanders themselves may not be rare but the partner combinations of Tormod, the Desecrator/Esior, Wardwing Familiar and Sengir, the Dark Baron/Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar are also pretty low on the EDHREC rankings.

I've kind of been debating building a Jolrael, Empress of Beasts deck. Ramp like a madman, animate like 30 forests at once and swing away!

I love seeing decklists for almost any "rare" commander, though. I've seen more than enough Atraxa, Kenrith and Korvold lists to last me a while.
