Hey, nice budget version of Ur-Dragon.

Casual Dragons is not meant to have fast game play. You want to be slow to build up ramp/color fixing to cast high CMC Dragons or cheat them onto the battlefield. My suggestions are to improve the color fixing which will help game play. If you can more easily make different colors of mana then it's easier to cast cards. Ramp that's also better at color fixing can be an improvement for five colors.

Cards to consider adding:

Indatha Triome and Ketria Triome are three different land types making them great for color fixing. Indatha and Ketria are Forest lands meaning that Nature's Lore and Skyshroud Claim can search and put onto the battlefield. Skyshroud can get both Indatha and Ketria which gives you five colors with only two lands. Farseek can also search for one of these Triomes.

Glade, Vista, Hollow, Stream and Marsh are called Battle lands and the reason to add them is they have interaction with basic lands and they're two different land types. Because they're two different land types then you can search for them and put them onto the battlefield with land ramp spells that can get a dual land such as Farseek.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Vivid Crag
  • Vivid Creek
  • Vivid Grove
  • Vivid Marsh
  • Vivid Meadow
  • Frontier Bivouac
  • Sandsteppe Citadel
  • Curse of Bounty
  • Curse of Verbosity
  • Armillary Sphere
  • Kodama's Reach

The Vivid lands need a way to keep putting counters on them such as proliferate. But adding proliferate just for the Vivid lands is not worth it and I don't suggest doing that. If don't have a way to put more counters on Vivid lands then they become too unreliable for color fixing.

Reach is fine ramp, but could be upgraded since it can only get basic lands. Sphere is not worth playing since it's not ramp; it only puts the basic lands you search for into your hand not onto the battlefield. The curses will help your opponents too much which is not what you want to be doing. The times in the game you would want to be casting these curses should instead be used to cast ramp.

Good luck with your deck.

Dear Kronhamilton

Golos, Tireless Pilgrim is my favorite commander, and I've been brewing around him ever since he was teased. Let me just say you've chosen an excellent commander.

(I’ve written quite a lot in an attempt to make a sort of guide for you, so if you want the short version, check out the Suggestions panel)

Golos can be tricky to build around since he can do literally anything pretty well. The easiest way to make an effective Golos deck is to lean into Golos's 7 Mana Rainbow Wheel Of Death. Before getting into that though, we need to cover some EDH deckbuilding basics.

I think the most useful advice I can give someone who is just beginning to explore the deck-building territory of EDH is to structure your deck and mind your Ratios. By this I mean it is useful to categorize the cards in your deck according to the role they fulfill.

We’ll begin by looking at some core categories that you’ll want to make your deck function effectively. Then I’ll present the Ratios (how many of each category of card) you will want to make a generic Golos deck function effectively. Next, I’ll include a detailed (but not totally complete, because I’d be here all day) catalogue of cards within some of those categories. I’ll also offer up some suggestions and input about some of your specific card choices. Lastly, since I’m about to unpack a lot of information, I will include a brief list of suggestions (see the bottom) for a generically good Golos ‘Shell’ that should be able to support most Golos strategies.

Categories

  • Draw

  • Ramp

  • Removal

  • Sweepers

  • Threats

  • Support

  • Land

Draw Show

Ramp Show

Removal Show

Sweepers Show

Threats Show

Support Show

Land Show

The art of Ratios is all about determining what combination of cards from each category makes your deck run the most smoothly.

Please note that these Ratios will not total to 99 cards. This is because you will invariably have extra flexibility to choose how your deck behaves even after establishing functional Ratios. Also keep in mind that although these Ratios do recommend you adhere to the minimum number of cards in each category, you still can choose which cards will fill those slots. The point is not to restrict your options, but instead to create a ‘Shell’ that is reliable enough to power your Threats cards, Support cards, and other cards. Whatever you do, make sure you have at least the minimum number of Draw and Ramp cards. THE MOST IMPORTANT CARDS IN THE DECK ARE DRAW AND RAMP!!!

While I ultimately suggest Ratios resembling the Basic Golos Shell, I will lay out the Ratios for several different Shells;

  • Template: a sort of baseline beginner’s guide which is commonly promoted as a place to start.

  • Basic Golos: a modified version of the Template that suites most Golos decks.

  • Control: a version tailored for a slower game with many Sweepers.

  • Aggro: a version designed to act quickly and deploy Threats before the opponents are prepared.

  • Big Mana: a version invested heavily into Ramp with the goal of deploying many end-game Threats.

  • Mega Mana: an even more extreme version of Big Mana with extremely expensive Threats.

Please remember that any suggestions I make are because I am trying to help. Ultimately, the choices you make with your deck are up to you, and I can only provide constructive criticism based on my own experience and opinions.

Good luck :)

Ratio Fixing

The most effective change to your deck would probably be adjusting the Ratios, especially with regard to your Draw cards. Applying the most basic Template Shell, you want to have at least these three quantities nailed down for a smoother and reasonably powerful deck;

  • Lands – 36 --> You have 40 Lands (Cut 4 Lands)

  • Ramp – 10 --> You have 5 true Ramp cards (Add 5 to 8 Ramp cards)

  • Draw – 10 --> You have 3 true Draw cards (Add 7 to 10 Draw cards)

What I counted in your deck Show

Mutate

Depending on how strong your Mutate subtheme is, some of your Mutate inclusions may act as engines. However, I must state that Mutate is a VERY risky and even fragile strategy since your Mutate ‘Pile’ of creatures will all be destroyed at once if your opponent uses a Removal spell or a Sweeper. For that reason, I recommend leaning out of the Mutate theme (unless the Mutate card is just straight-up insane, as in the example of Nethroi, Apex of Death).

With that said, playing a Mutate theme is your decision and I totally respect that and if you want to stick to a Mutate theme then by all means do so. I just want to be sure you know that Mutate is a risky strategy that you cannot depend on to fulfill your Ramp and Draw slots (so you’ll just need to supplement it with other cards).

Cut or Include?

At a glance your deck seems like something you have created using just your collection – and that’s great! However, if you want to incrementally upgrade your deck, then I recommend replacing most of the cards in your deck with more powerful options over time.

Here is a list of cards you should probably keep playing: - Barrier Breach (Removal, because exiling 3 enchantments is helpful in some situations)

In my opinion, there are other, better options for all of the other nonland cards in the deck, however it is up to you to decide on how you would like to proceed so I won’t intrude.

I strongly recommend cutting the Planeswalkers though – Calix, Destiny's Hand doesn’t seem to synergize much with the deck and I feel that Lukka, Coppercoat Outcast is not very potent.

Lands

Just as a recommendation, I would suggest the following spread of Basic Lands;

  • 8 Basic Forests

  • 3 of each other Basic Land

The remainder of your lands could be either more basics (which is really, really, risky if you don’t have tons of Ramp – think like 15 Ramp cards and about 12 Basic Forests) or Color Fixing Lands (see the Catalogue for more options). It is rough to have your lands enter the battlefield tapped, but unless you want to either lean into Green or spend a lot of money on lands, you will just have to live with it (I play around 5-10 tapped lands in a normal Golos deck and it isn’t really that bad).

In this section, I will list out an example of the Basic Golos Shell complete with the necessary Ratios and some examples of good/fun cards in each category. I’ll try to keep it relatively Budget sensitive and most of these cards will be relatively random – this won’t be based on any particular theme so don’t expect it to be optimal.

As a reminder:

Threats – 12

Support – 7

Land – 36

Hey, Regal Behemoth may out of the price range, but it's a Dino to have for ramp to curve into Gishath and it has trample. It's not a Lizard it's a Dino, it was errata to Dinosaur three years ago when Ixalan was released. It's an expensive price Dino, but try to make room/budget for it.

Quartzwood Crasher is new budget Dino from Ikoria who's very underrated. It can create many powerful Dino tokens with trample. It has trample and so does Gishath, Ghalta, Zacama, etc. It's pretty bonkers with Ghalta. And gives excellent Dino value for five mana when it has haste from Regisaur Alpha. Quartzwood scales very well and can get out of hand quick for your opponents since it and the token it creates have trample. Rhythm of the Wild is another haste enabler for Dinos and it also protects them and Gishath from being countered when cast.

Elemental Bond can trigger to draw any time a creature you control with 3 or more power enters the battlefield, this includes when a token is created. Bond for a three drop over the course of a game can draw you a lot of cards with Dinos. It's good with Quartzwood. Congregation at Dawn can tutor for and setup the top three cards of your library to be Dinos for when you attack with Gishath. Fierce Empath is not a Dino, but it's a budget creature tutor for one of your best big Dinos, it's worth including especially if you add Regal.

I see Farseek and Nature's Lore, but I only see Stomping Ground dual land that they can search for. That's the advantage of these spells is they can ramp with a dual land which is also color fixing. Cinder Glade and Canopy Vista were just reprinted in Commander 2020. I would make room/budget for these two dual lands. Sheltered Thicket and Scattered Groves are two more budget lands that have two different types. Other budget land upgrades are: Exotic Orchard, Battlefield Forge, Fortified Village, Ash Barrens, Naya Panorama.

Wild Growth, Fertile Ground and Trace of Abundance are three more land auras for ramp and these are upgrades because they're less mana to cast. Beast Within and Generous Gift are versatile instant removal spells in Commander because they can destroy any permanent and giving your opponent a 3/3 doesn't matter much when you have much higher power Dinos.

Good luck with your deck.

Deck looks pretty sweet!

  1. Farseek over Arcane Signet gets you another landfall trigger. Both are 2 CMC, so you won't miss anything.

  2. Bojuka Bog nets graveyard interaction without affecting consistency at all.

  3. Pending your budget, fetchlands do a ton for landfall themes. Even sticking with the cheap ones like Terramorphic Expanse adds a ton to get multiple triggers.

  4. Sire of Stagnation is pseudo landfall, but he is straight gas and draws 8 cards off 1 opposing fetchland!
