Hey, nice budget version of Tuvasa.

Just about the entire budget here is for five cards: Enlightened, Rector, Copy, Karmic and Dryad. If budget is a concern I think you could cut Copy and Karmic of these to clear some price to upgrade the manabase. Low mana cost auras that can give Tuvasa evasion are important otherwise without evasion she's a huge creature who can just be blocked by a token. Rancor is very good, but consider adding the trifecta of budget hybrid Bant colored cost auras? Because Tuvasa is three colors then these auras give her +2/+2 pump as well two other abilities which is good for their mana costs.

Budget cards to consider adding:


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Azorius Guildgate
  • Selesnya Guildgate
  • Simic Guildgate
  • Blossoming Sands
  • Thornwood Falls
  • Tranquil Cove
  • 3x Forest
  • 1x Island
  • Elderwood Scion
  • Mana Bloom
  • Dictate of Kruphix
  • Omen of the Hunt
  • Ashiok's Erasure

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, consider new Destiny Spinner? It's a good two drop enchantment creature for enchantment strategies. It can give you a backup evasive creature who has the same ability as Tuvasa. Darksteel Citadel is worth playing with Spinner. Consider Rancor and/or Favor of the Overbeing? Low CMC auras that can give Tuvasa evasion.

Of the combos I don't like the Tunnel combo. I don't think you need it and it seems too risky, not being able to do it at instant speed. At sorcery speed it gives your opponents too much opportunity to response with graveyard hate. What happens if Replenish or Open are countered? Other than the Scry lands which are subpar you don't have a way to setup Vision.

The manabase is good except the Battle lands and Scry lands. With only six basic lands the two Battle lands don't seem worth it. Consider cutting them for Exotic Orchard and City of Brass? Consider the Pain lands: Brushland, Yavimaya Coast, Adarkar Wastes? I think they're better here than the Scry lands because Pains will ETB untapped which is helpful with three drop Tuvasa.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.

I'll first give my opinion on the direction you've taken your deck and then if you would like me to continue I'll give some suggestions in another comment of other ways to use Estrid as Commander. You're trying to combine +1/+1 counter creature strategies, enchant creature auras and equipment with a noncreature Commander. There's problems because these strategies are much better when your Commander is a creature since then it can be the main focus of boosting it's power with counters/auras/equipment.

I don't think the +1/+1 counters creature strategies are good with Estrid as Commander. Because Estrid isn't a creature and doesn't interact with creatures with counters. Estrid not being a creature means you can't put +1/+1 counters on her and make her a threat to do Commander damage. That's a big drawback if you can't use your Commander with +1/+1 counter strategies. Putting masks on creatures to protect them is fine, but this interaction doesn't seem particularly that good or needed.

Another thing I don't like about counter strategies with creatures with Estrid is these strategies don't need enchantments. With Estrid enchantments should be the focus of your deck especially with proliferate because of her -7 ultimate can be a powerful way to cheat enchantments onto the battlefield, but only if you're playing a lot of them. If not taking advantage of Estrid's -7 ultimate then proliferate is not doing much with her.

I think with Estrid as Commander Doubling Season effects would be better to use with Planeswalkers rather than +1/+1 counters with creatures. As Foretold is a good reason to want to proliferate, but not with creatures, with Planeswalkers and enchantments. Planeswalkers and enchantments have good interactions, much better than creatures with counters and enchantments.


Rafiq of the Many is an example of Bant Commander that could be good with +1/+1 counters creature strategies because he's a creature and double strike becomes scary for your opponents when Rafiq has a lot of power. Rafiq is considered a voltron Commander. Voltron means that you enchant/equip or place counters on a single creature and that creature is your win condition doing damage to your opponents, hopefully Commander damage. With Rafiq as Commander you could better combine the main counters creature strategies with secondary aura and equipment strategies. Shield of the Oversoul, Steel of the Godhead, Favor of the Overbeing, Rancor is a small, but powerful package of auras with Rafiq and voltron strategies.

Jenara, Asura of War like Rafiq has evasion, flying, but unlike Rafiq she can put counters on herself which is a bonus especially with Simic Ascendancy. This could make her a good Bant voltron Commander with counter creature strategies because she's a creature who you want to target with other cards to place counters on her and proliferate.

Tuvasa the Sunlit is another Bant voltron Commander, but unlike Rafiq and Jenara she benefits, really needs, a lot of aura enchantments. This doesn't mean you couldn't play counter strategies also, but they shouldn't be the main strategy, auras should. Auras that are good with her are the same ones with Rafiq, but also Ethereal Armor, Ancestral Mask, All That Glitters. Auras that give a creature more power the more enchantments you and/or opponents have on the battlefield.

If you would like I can continue with more advice.

Good luck with your deck.

Omg, so much from the new set!!! I am extremely excited to add in these new cards!!! The ones that are definitely going in are Destiny Spinner , Setessan Champion , and Calix, Destiny's Hand . These are auto includes, Destiny Spinner protects us against those nasty control players and Setessan is exactly what Tuvasa wants to be and the casting cost is so easy! Calix is a godsend as we can dig for more enchantments and is so decently costed as well!

Cuts will definitely be hard but the ones I am looking at currently most likely be Season of Growth , Favor of the Overbeing , and Blessing of the Nephilim . As much as I love the latter two cards...it might be time to cut them.

Ones that I might test that interest me may be:

There are definite so many options which is good, so I am most excited to try them out!

Hey, nice budget deck and good upgrade of the precon.

Consider adding more low mana cost auras? Especially ones that can give Tuvasa evasion. She should be your main source of damage to opponents, Commander damage; I would focus on that. Other than the Enchantresses I don't see a need for lots of other creatures.

Budget cards ($3 or less each) to consider adding:

Lands:

Evasion:

Good Auras:

Protection:

Tutors:

Other Enchantresses:

Overbeing, Oversoul and Godhead are great with Tuvasa because she's three colors. Boots, Cover and Authority are low mana cost ways to protect Tuvasa from targeted removal with hexproof. Cover and Authority also provide potential evasion.


For cuts to consider my advice is to cut many of the high mana cost cards to help to reduce the avg. CMC of your deck. Take more advantage of three drop Tuvasa and the Enchantresses by adding more low mana cost enchantments.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Blossoming Sands
  • Meandering River
  • Thornwood Falls
  • Tranquil Cove
  • Tranquil Expanse
  • Woodland Stream
  • Take Possession
  • Omniscience
  • Martial Coup
  • Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle
  • Celestial Ancient
  • Heavenly Blademaster
  • Hydra Omnivore
  • Nylea's Colossus
  • Silent Sentinel
  • Bruna, Light of Alabaster
  • Octopus Umbra
  • Faith Unbroken

Hey, looks good. I like the enchantment package, a mix of voltron and other powerful enchantments. Consider expanding on the voltron theme with more low mana cost auras? I think there's too many creatures and the avg. CMC of your deck could be lower.

Cards that are within the deck's budget to consider adding (in order):

Cards to consider cutting (in order):

  • Krosan Verge
  • Temple of Mystery
  • Blighted Woodland
  • Llanowar Scout
  • Skyshroud Ranger
  • Sakura-Tribe Scout
  • Budoka Gardener
  • Reclamation Sage
  • Karametra, God of Harvests
  • Nylea, God of the Hunt
  • Rafiq of the Many
  • Heliod, God of the Sun
  • Sphere of Safety
  • Sigil of the Empty Throne
  • Finest Hour

I offer more advice if you would like. Good luck with your deck.

Hey, other than one aura, Ancestral Mask , your deck is setup to use Estrid as a Commander more than Tuvasa.

Tuvasa is strongest when she's attacking doing Commander damage. What makes her powerful is she's both an enchantress and beat stick for Commander damage from the Command Zone. With Tuvasa as Commander consider low mana cost auras that can make her a real threat? Rancor , Ethereal Armor , Daybreak Coronet , Steel of the Godhead , Favor of the Overbeing , etc. Want to get enchantments onto the battlefield fast to pump Tuvasa, but this goes against the extensive pillowfort strategy.

The pillowfort strategy with combos requires a lot resources and time to setup and that's in Estrid's wheelhouse not Tuvasa. Tuvasa can still benefit from some pillowfort cards such as Blind Obedience and Authority of the Consuls since these cards help to clear blockers for her to attack. Aura of Silence , Energy Flux , Stony Silence are also quite good since they shut down artifacts and artifacts aren't part of your strategy. Tuvasa can also benefit, but much less than Estrid, from low mana cost land auras. Unlike Estrid who wants all the land auras to take advantage of her +2, Tuvasa doesn't need them all, just the low mana cost ones that create ramp (Growth, Sprawl, Fertile).

Many creatures are less needed when playing Tuvasa as Commander because she's the creature you want to focus on and enchant. All the other enchantresses as well as Sram, Senior Edificer and Kor Spiritdancer (aura enchantresses) and Heliod's Pilgrim are all the creatures you need. Rather than big creatures consider instead splashy cards that interact with auras/enchantments: Retether , Three Dreams , Wargate , Plea for Guidance , Aura Thief .

Good luck with your deck.
