This is super cool!!! You might like these: Mantle of Leadership , Pollenbright Wings , Sigil of the Nayan Gods , Hope Against Hope , Heliod's Pilgrim (finds Squirrel Nest), Open the Armory , Fierce Empath (finds the Earl), Fungal Sprouting , Murder Investigation , Mercy Killing , Anointer Priest , Requiem Angel , Bramble Sovereign (interestingly, the Earl is not legendary, which means you can copy and populate it for multiple Earls!), Mimic Vat , Second Harvest , Parallel Evolution , Shared Summons .

I can think of more if you need :p Also I would take out Nantuko Shrine . I'd be surprised if you made even 1 squirrel with it.

Hey, 64 creatures? I understand Nikya doesn't let you cast noncreature spells, but 64 is kind of overkill.

Temur Sabertooth lets you take some advantage of Nikya's ramp by bouncing her to your hand to then use the ramp on a noncreature spell such as Primal Surge. Some noncreature spells within the budget to consider adding:

Last_Laugh on Animar, Soul of IDK

Not a bad start but your avg cmc needs some work. 24 non-creatures is also pretty high in Animar... I'd shoot for 16 or less and replace spells with etb's.

Spellseeker , Imperial Recruiter , and Fierce Empath will all put in some work here. Spellseeker especially since it looks up Weird Harvest.

I'd drop every last mana rock you have for stuff like Wood Elves , Cloud of Faeries , Dockside Extortionist , Peregrine Drake , Great Whale , and Palinchron .

I'd whittle your high cmc Eldrazi down a little. I.e. 1 Ula, 1 Kozi, and drop the rest that cost 10+. Bounce enablers let you reuse cast triggers and etb's... consider Cloudstone Curio , Equilibrium , Dream Stalker , and Shrieking Drake .

Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. I've been playing Animar for about 5 years now and the list is great for fairly competitive metas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

king-saproling on Ruric thar

3 weeks ago

This is a pretty good start for your first commander deck! Possibility Storm could be cool here because it causes Ruric to trigger twice on every noncreature spell.

Personally I would make these swaps:

Treacherous Terrain --> Angrath's Marauders
Rampant Growth --> Gyre Sage
Cultivate --> Drumhunter
Leyline of Combustion --> Stalking Vengeance
Destructive Revelry --> Caustic Caterpillar
Colossal Majesty --> Garruk's Packleader
Pyroclastic Elemental --> Primordial Sage
Scorch Spitter --> Fierce Empath
Gruul Cluestone --> Yavimaya Elder
Tectonic Rift --> Jiwari, the Earth Aflame
Savage Twister --> Silklash Spider
From Beyond --> Gratuitous Violence

SaberTech on Ancestral Animar

3 weeks ago

I think that an argument could be made for including Soul of the Harvest or Primordial Sage in terms of improving the chance of naturally drawing into an enchantress effect. (Sage is better by the way, because it draws on the cast not on ETB so you get a card even if the spell is countered.) There is also the point that their card draw trigger is a "may" ability, unlike Glimpse of Nature or Beast Whisperer , which can be relevant in some situations.

That being said, they have lost a lot of utility as cards like Shrieking Drake and Dream Stalker have been phased out of the deck. You could keep bouncing those cards back to hand throughout the game, meaning that you always had what would count as multiple creatures available for repeat triggers on your later-game Soul or Sage. The deck also used to run Fierce Empath back when it still had the eldrazi package, but now that the eldrazi are gone and you can't really justify running the Empath it is harder to tutor for Soul or Sage. You also have to keep in mind that Spellseeker being able to tutor for the Glimpse kind of makes it count as a third enchantress that the deck already runs. The loss of later-game utility, on top of them being awkward draws in your opening hand, has made it more of a hassle to get value out of Soul and Sage overall.

So Soul or Sage could be run if you think that drawing into an enchantress effect more consistently is important, such as if you are working with a budget list and you don't have an Imperial Recruiter for setting up tutor lines. Beyond that though, Consecrated Sphinx is better at restocking an empty hand on its own, while Soul and Sage require you to keep casting creatures to get value out of them.

Do you guys prefer Fierce Empath over Undergrowth Champion ? I’m thinking about placing it in to find some bombs in my deck.

multimedia on Gishath's Dinohorde

1 month ago

Hey, I agree with RNR_Gaming. Add more ways to cheat Dinos onto the battlefield because Gishath is eight mana. If you don't want to do this then increase the amount of ramp a lot. My advice is consider doing both?

Road of Return is interesting, it can put Gishath into your hand from the Command Zone. Combine this with a way to cheat a creature onto the battlefield. It can be a faster way to getting Gishath onto the battlefield. Atla is busted with Marauding Raptor ; a repeatable way to cheat creatures onto the battlefield.

Tutors within the budget to consider adding:

Gamble can potentially get Mirari's Wake . Call is one of the best creature tutors in Commander. Dawn can set-up the top of your library for a Gishath trigger or for Atla.

Ramp to consider adding:

Most of these ramp options are good with mana doublers: Regal Behemoth and Mirari's Wake as these are priority cards to want to have on the battlefield since they give you the best chance of ramping into Gishath or other Dinos.

If you like some of these suggestions then I offer advice on what cards to cut. Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice job keeping the budget low and interesting version of Xenagos with Planeswalkers.

The majority of my budget cards suggestions to you to consider are lower mana cost cards to help to reduce the avg. CMC of your deck which is high at 4.4 or cards that are the same mana cost, but are upgrades.

Cards to consider adding:

These are cards that I think can help your deck since they provide something that's missing here. Early game ramp is good when playing a five drop Commander who you would like to get onto the battlefield quick. There's also many high mana cost creatures here that more early game ramp can help to cast them. Farseek can search for a dual land: Cinder Glade or Sheltered Thicket . Being able to land ramp with a dual land is helpful. Elvish Mystic and Llanowar Elves are one drop mana dorks who are some of green's best cards for Commander.

Creature tutors: Fierce Empath and Signal the Clans are helpful to get a creature into your hand after getting Xenagos onto the battlefield. Either, but especially Empath can get Ghalta, Primal Hunger . Repeatable draw is very good in Commander especially draw that has interaction with your Commander. Greater Good and Garruk, Primal Hunter is powerful repeatable draw when you have a creature with a lot of power which a creature gets from Xenagos's ability. Ghalta for instance can draw 24 cards after doing 24 combat damage. Greater is also good with Moldgraf Monstrosity , a way to kill it which then reanimates two creatures giving you more fuel for both Xenagos and Greater.

Moldgraf and Greenwarden of Murasa are ways to recur or reanimate cards from your graveyard. They are creatures which gives them interaction with Xenagos and Greater. Having recurion/renaimation is helpful in Commander because your creatures are going to die and being able to use a card more than once is good. Chaos Warp and Beast Within are versatile instant removal spells in Commander since they can target any one permanent this includes a problematic opponent land.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Timber Gorge
  • Gruul Guildgate
  • Shivan Dragon
  • Essence of the Wild
  • Hoard-Smelter Dragon
  • Rumbling Slum
  • Zhur-Taa Ancient
  • Protean Hulk
  • Shamanic Revelation
  • Hunting Wilds
  • Planewide Celebration
  • Enlarge
  • Blanchwood Armor
  • Consign to Dust

Good luck with your deck.
