multimedia, thanks again for the suggestions. Would you believe that I bought a box of Commander Legends and didn't pull a copy of Fists of Flame ? I like it, and I'll get it eventually.

I'm wavering a bit on the Inscription of Abundance . I do like the idea of removal like that, but worry about the spell being copied doing lethal damage to Kalamax. It's nice to be able to hit two creatures, but often Kalamax will be my only creature. Is this an issue that you have noticed?

Some cards you probably want but just haven't encountered:

Brute Force , Crimson Wisps , Expedite , Fists of Flame , Soul's Fire , Swiftfoot Boots

Mutavault to help against edicts and give you an extra attacker. Lots of other cards do this but not as efficiently

Break Through the Line double duty

Shadowspear helps you beat other aggro decks and occasionally saves your ass with the activated ability

Mana Stuff:

Sol Ring , Braid of Fire , Runaway Steam-Kin , Sword of Feast and Famine , Chandra, Torch of Defiance

Kari Zev's Expertise , Goatnap , Claim the Firstborn , Wrangle , or any Threaten with an upside really

Hey, I like the new update and nice new deck description too. It's fine with me if you want to reference anything from my deck. I don't think Early Harvest is worth playing.

Some budget cards that fit with your theme to consider playtesting:

Some budget cards that have over preformed for me:

Fists could replace Unnatural Predation since the draw is worth the one extra mana. Three counters on Kalamax and fight/most likely killing an opponent's creature is better than Tread Upon . The nice thing about these two instants is you can get something out of them if you cast them on an opponent's turn. Casting Fists to draw two or more cards and the counters from Inscription stay with Kalamax + instant fight or fight + fight.

Something to think about is the extreme value you get from Kalamax comes from being able to copy an instant on each opponents turns. That's a problem with most pump spells, you only want to cast them on your turn with attacking Kalamax.

With limited card draw in your colors, it might be worth playing some more cantrips that buff Bruse and replace themselves.

Bestial Fury and Fists of Flame give much-needed trample. Blindblast, Panic Spellbomb, Panic, Rile, and Stun get past lone blockers, while Key to the City gets past anyone. Shelter protects or allows to get past certain colors of blockers. Dragon Mantle gives you a big buff. Burnout prevents tricksy blue spells in combat or counters against your stuff.

Mind Stone and Commander's Sphere give you mana early and card draw late. Scrabbling Claws lets you hate on graveyards and draw if you need.

And since you have two commanders, Tome of Legends is doubly good.

Taking out the ones that target Zada and a creature an opponent controls, you could include Giant Growth-eur 0.11-for Thrash / Threat, out Fists of Flame for a 2 mana Overwhelm in the form of Predator's Strike-eur 0.19- (Fists of flame will only ever give +2/+0 in this deck).

Out 2x Nature's Way, in Ajani's Presence for board wipe immunity that can also work without Zada. I don't mind having 4xDomri's Ambush and 2xNature's Way for some cheap removal.

Yooo Patrick. I was about to make an Etali deck for my local game shop's budget night (€40 max). I've been following your channel for awhile and as we both share a hate for blue in competitive, I stumbled across your primers for Neheb. So, I decided to give Neheb a try instead.

Holy cow this deck was explosive even on a budget. I was able to consecutively take out the whole board by turn 5/6. I am now wanting to spend a little extra on it, and just use it for FNM at my store instead because this deck is just SO fun to pilot.

I have to say Fists of Flame worked very well, cantripping and giving him that sweet +1/0 boost on double strike makes it much easier to take out opponents and their blockers. Its also another target for Spellbinder if you still run it. Great primer and I hope that you keep upgrading the deck on tapped out to keep up with new cards because this deck is hella fun.
