Hey, really well done for your first Commander deck and less than $100 budget. Garth is an interesting choice for Commander for five color Dragons, haven't seen this before. Jodah, Archmage Eternal would be my first choice for a less than $1 five color Dragon Commander.

Some budget support cards to consider adding. These card suggestions have interaction with each other, Garth and Dragons.

If interested I offer more advice including some cuts to consider. Would you like more advice?

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, good version on a low budget and nice Gnawbone + Charger combo. If you're making 729 mana then get a Comet Storm in here!

Unnatural Growth can repeatedly at combat, before you attack, double the power/toughness of Klauth and all other Dragons you control. This effect can make a ton more mana, make your Dragon army much more dangerous and 8/8 Klauth is much more difficult for an opponent to favorably block. Dragon's Hoard is an upgrade for a ramp source since it has interaction with Dragons to be repeatable draw.

Anger is a good card and a wanted effect especially when you can get it for paying no mana. You don't want to ever cast Anger though instead you want to discard it or get into your graveyard other ways. Currently there's no way here to discard Anger unless you have 8 or more cards at your Cleanup step. Consider adding some loot that can discard Anger?

By adding loot you also add more draw and two of these spells also create ramp from treasures. Anger is the only haste enabler here and that effect is wanted more with Dragons especially Gnawbone. Consider more haste enablers?


Some Dragon tutors can help to cast your powerful Dragons when you have the mana from Klauth. Consider some Dragon tutors?

Loot goes with any card recursion and green is excellent at it. Consider some card recursion?

Currently there's no card recursion here and that's a strength of green which other colors don't have as much access too. You're stuff is going to die in a game of Commander and being able to get it back is helpful especially when you can make a lot of mana. Seasons Past is a way to use a lot of mana to recur cards and cast all of them. Past is great with Rishkar's Expertise and Return of the Wildspeaker to draw lots of cards.


Some cards to consider cutting are some of the lesser Dragons since there's several Dragons here that are miles ahead in power. By adding draw and tutors in place of some of the lesser Dragons then you have more chances to draw the better Dragons or get them directly into your hand.

  • Decree of Savagery
  • Neverwinter Hydra
  • Taurean Mauler
  • Skyship Stalker
  • Demanding Dragon
  • Hoard-Smelter Dragon
  • Shivan Hellkite
  • Dragon Throne of Tarkir
  • Bogardan Hellkite
  • Commander's Sphere
  • 1x Forest

Mana created by Klauth can't be used to pay for activation costs, even if that mana is turned into colorless by Horizon Stone it still has the restriction of only being able to be used to cast spells. Because of this Dragons who the reason you're playing them is because they have an activated ability are less good then ones who give you value when they ETB or attack.

Good luck with your deck.

There's too many variables to realistically try to science-ify it. For example: Diabolic Tutor is unplayable at high level, but it would be hard to accurately quantify with a points system how much worse it is than Vampiric Tutor, or the other "strong" tutors. If it had the same value as other tutors, that'd be a huge flaw. The same could be said for Crop Rotation vs something like Cultivate, or Fierce Empath against Imperial Recruiter.

I don't mean to say nobody should try or that it's impossible to determine, but it would be a lot of work just to show what most players can already see: which cards, and decks, are strongest.

Perhaps an "easier" way to determine a subset of this would be to take stock lists and run them through a gauntlet of pods with the other most commonly played (or strongest, or whatever category) list and see what wins the most against the field.

This is a mistake, there is no interactions here.

Earthcraft has interaction with the following:

This will not work or combo with Kamahl’s Will, yet they are both really powerful cards and should be tested. Apologize for any confusion I will proof read another time if I'm editing late lol

That said all those cards need to be tested and I can only find three solid cuts right now. Taking a look at the role of cards tonight instead of interaction.

Hey, well done for a first deck. You have good card sense on a budget and you've even included Rimewood for Farseek, nice. Sol Ring and Arcane Signet are staple budget mana rocks in Commander to consider adding.

I see Retreat to Coralhelm, but I don't see the missing piece to the Retreat landfall combo. Budget Llanowar Scout or Scaled Herbalist tap to put a land from your hand onto the battlefield thus you can untap one of them with Retreat and repeat. These creatures let you put a land from your hand onto the battlefield at instant speed to trigger Aesi on opponent's turn. The last piece of the combo is Simic Growth Chamber or Guildless Commons. The land can bounce itself back to your hand and repeat.

I see Kodama of the East Tree; if you add Meloku the Clouded Mirror then you have another landfall combo. Any basic land can be repeatedly bounced and played to create infinite 1/1 Spirits. Tap a basic land to make one mana, use that mana to pay for Meloku and bounce the basic land you just tapped. This creates a 1/1 Spirit which triggers Kodama, put the same basic land from your hand and repeat.


There's a secondary sea monster theme here which Ominous Seas would expand on. Seas has interaction with Aesi since you put a counter on it each time you draw a card including your first draw each of your turns. Combine Seas with Retreat combo to make infinite 8/8 Krakens. Whelming Wave can be a blowout since Aesi is a Serpent. Bounce all opponents creatures leaving just Aesi and any other sea monsters still on the battlefield. Wave is nice Fierce Empath to bounce it to then cast it again to tutor again.

Teferi's Ageless Insight lets you draw an additional card whenever you draw a card. For each card drawn means that if you have an effect that draws more than one card such as Brainstorm you instead draw six cards. Yavimaya Coast, Bant Panorama, Blighted Woodland are some budget land upgrades to consider.


Some cards to consider cutting:

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, you've made a few good upgrades to the precon, nice Koma, Avenger, Rift and Birds. Do you own the cards in the maybeboard? All those cards are upgrades.

Some budget upgrades to consider:

Most of these suggestions is expanding on sources that can repeatedly create tokens with cards that have less converted mana cost (CMC). That's an area in the precon that's lacking which gives you more interaction with Twincasters earlier in the game.

Tireless Provisioner is ramp with treasures that has interaction with Twincasters. Biowaste Blob and Spawnwrithe can make token copies of themselves at your upkeep or by attacking/doing combat damage to a player. Champion of Lambholt cares about +1/+1 counters to make all creatures you control unblockable. Pair her with any source that can create creature tokens because she triggers whenever a creature token is created.

Mimic Vat can imprint an opponent's creature who dies which gives it real versatility in multiplayer Commander. Unfortunately, the token copy from Twincasters will also be exiled at the next end step therefore you don't get to keep the token copy unless you make another copy of the token then that copy won't be exiled. Risen Reef, Timeless Witness, Fierce Empath all have a strong ETB effect making them good creatures to make a token copy of. Rimewood Falls is a dual land that Farseek can search for instead of only a basic Island.

Good luck with your deck.
