Hinterland Harbor Discussion
5 days ago
multimedia I am ashamed at myself for missing those staples, I promise I usually know that! The end-step untappers are mice, (can't wait for the new Commander Collection art of Seedborn Muse!) but I play tested with Mass Manipulation and it just doesn't cut it as a win-con (just like how people don't play Insurrection that much anymore). Hinterland Harbor and Alchemist's Refuge are pretty nice--but I don't care much for the other duals. I might grab a Leyline of Anticipation as per your flash suggestion, though! Thanks for helping out!
Massacar thanks for the suggestion: that's a very powerful combo that I don't feel the need to run. Kinnan, by himself, is a decent fit--it all depends on my land-acceleration to direct-to-the-pool mana-acceleration balance in the final iteration. I'll take a look at my land count: seems very likely too high, as you said. Thanks a ton!

Hey, Sol Ring and Command Tower are some staples in Commander. Carpet of Flowers, Seedborn Muse, Wilderness Reclamation and Mana Reflection can make lots of mana with Kruphix. You can use colorless mana to pay for the upkeep cost of Mystic Remora keeping it on the battlefield to draw a lot of cards. Overload Cyclonic Rift is a powerful effect to use colorless mana. Mass Manipulation can gain control of a lot of creatures/Planeswalkers.
Because of the mana dorks more dual lands that can ETB turn one to make green mana: Command Tower, Yavimaya Coast, Waterlogged Grove, City of Brass. Other good Simic dual lands: Flooded Grove and Hinterland Harbor. Alchemist's Refuge lets you cast your win condition in response to something your opponent does or with Pinnacle at the end of your last opponent's turn before your next upkeep.

My girlfriend just asked me to put Slivers back together. Anyways, as far as the land base goes I'm gunna list. Things out by cost/relevancy
duals I know eww reserved list but if you got em or can proxy em play em
fetches they're getting their reprint in modern horizons 2 but still stupid expensive - but the fixing is just so good!
Reflecting Pool, Cavern of Souls, City of Brass, Tarnished Citadel, Mana Confluence, Forbidden Orchard, Exotic Orchard, Meteor Crater, Pillar of the Paruns, Ancient Ziggurat, Path of Ancestry, Thran Quarry, Gemstone Mine, Aether Hub and Tendo Ice Bridge
I'm not a mega fan of the depletion lands but they're excellent if you're on a budget :)
shocks - you already got a few I'll recommend getting the rest
Utility lands very overpriced cardboard but the power is definitely there
From there, if those cards are out of budget/you cannot proxy I'd go with the Triomes, battlebond lands Sea of Clouds, check lands Hinterland Harbor, and lastly the painlands Battlefield Forge beyond those the lands start becoming too inefficient and you will be targeted playing slivers. Even if you're not the threat having a slow land base is a death sentence. Hope this helped :)

Poor merfolk. All those lords and they still die to 6-pack plastic rings. My hope is that you don't take this the wrong way, but shouldn't you cut a few creatures for some additional lands? Perhaps -1 Angler Turtle for +1 Hinterland Harbor or even a Lumbering Falls if you're concerned about cutting any creatures. Definitely earned your plus one from me though. Cheers!

Hey there! I would recommend more ramp and some different lands! Maybe some of the following can be of use to you?
- Yavimaya Coast
- Breeding Pool
- Misty Rainforest
- Botanical Sanctum
- Hinterland Harbor
- Flooded Grove
- Waterlogged Grove
- Skyshroud Forest
- Ancient Tomb
- Prismatic Vista
- Fabled Passage
- City of Brass
- Mana Confluence
- Reflecting Pool
- Exotic Orchard
- Strip Mine/Wasteland
- Forbidden Orchard
- Gemstone Mine
Now I understand some of these are bigger budgeted, but a good mana base is quite important in commander, and while you have a good landbase already, these could make it much smoother and help lessen the chance of mana problems! Not only that, but it is very important to have ramp, so you can play your deck faster. Around 7-12 ramp spells is the average, so I would recommend some of the following:
- Birds of Paradise
- Talisman of Curiosity
- Sylvan Caryatid
- Lotus Petal
- Selvala, Heart of the Wilds (If you keep Arix as your commander)
- Kodama's Reach/Cultivate
- Sakura-Tribe Elder/Rampant Growth
- Arcane Signet
- Simic Signet
- Nature's Lore/Three Visits
- Emerald Medallion/Sapphire Medallion
Again I know that's a lot, but I would seriously recommend all of them, they are extremely helpful! Now I wouldn't recommend ALL of those, but maybe chose are 10 that stand out to you! Ramp is extremely important so definitely try it out.
That said, I have a couple more suggestions as well. Arixmethes is good, but I'm not sure how he helps with card draw or anything. Since you have a average mana cost of 4.40 (which is a lot) maybe Kruphix, God of Horizons could be a better commander? Or maybe something like Tishana, Voice of Thunder and Prime Speaker Zegana? I'm not sure but I think having a commander that relates to the deck could be a pretty good improvement. ALSO, since you want to draw out your deck, Laboratory Maniac and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries could be pretty good combos. If you have Leveler and one of these guys you instantly WIN which is pretty crazy! And if you have nothing in your graveyard, Paradigm Shift can have a similar effect. Maybe they are worth including? Oh and before I forget, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and Thought Vessel are very fun in these decks :).
In the end let me know what you think! Did I miss anything? Or if you have any questions for me or want further help feel free to ask I'd love to help! If this does help be sure to check and support some of my decks: Double Trouble EDH, A Deal With the Devil EDH, and many others! Anyways though, hope this helps, good luck on your deck, and have a great day!!! Happy tapping!

FatMonkeyNutz all totally valid. As you say we all have different styles and preferences. Personally I really like having as much mana on-hand as quickly as possible (especially in deck centered on X cost cards).
For lands, I'm just going to copy paste my land base from my own deck and clean out any duplicates or irrelevant cards (balance your mana as you need). (Lands not from my deck you may like, Mana Confluence, City of Brass)

Hey, some base numbers to consider when starting out a three color casual Temur deck:
- 36 lands: Command Tower, Exotic Orchard
- 12 ramp sources: Simic/Izzet/Gruul Signets, Farseek
- 10 draw sources: Brainstorm, Coiling Oracle
- 8 removal/counterspells: Nature's Claim, Counterspell
- 5 tutors: Shared Summons, Prime Speaker Vannifar
Of course these numbers can be increased or decreased as you build the deck, but this is a good starting point with some cards to consider adding.
Any creatures or instant/sorceries you play think of them has having two additional mana in their mana costs that way you can get value from Riku. This means more creatures and instant/sorceries that are lower mana cost such as Coiling Oracle and Growth Spiral. Oracle and Spiral for two mana can help to get to five or more mana to cast Riku.
Legendary creatures are not the best with Riku because of the legendary rule. Only allowing you to have one card that's the same name in your control meaning you don't really want to copy a legendary creature with Riku. The token copy still triggers any ETB abilities, but then you remove the token copy and keep the original legendary creature.
Some budget win conditions with Riku
Biovisionary + one copy of Biovisionary + Twinflame
At beginning of your end step resolve the Biovisionary win the game trigger before the Twinflame exile tokens trigger which wins the game before the tokens are exiled. Biovisionary is also good with clones such as Phyrexian Metamorph. With Riku in your control get Biovisionary onto the battlefield, make a copy of it, clone it with Metamorph and make token copy of Metamorph gives you four Biovisionarys. Twinflame also combos with Dualcaster Mage for infinite Dualcasters who can attack with haste.
Ral, Storm Conduit + Fork Expansion / Explosion/Reverberate/Twincast
With Ral in your control cast a Fork, copy it with Riku. Let the copy resolve and then copy the original Fork still on the stack. Resolving the Fork copy then copying the original Fork makes a copy instant loop which does infinite damage to your opponents one at a time with Ral. These Forks are good with Riku outside the combo because for four mana you can copy an opponents spell twice. Forks are nice in multiplayer Commander where you have many opponents who are casting instant/sorceries you could copy.
Some of other cards $5 or less each that are good with Riku
- Mana dorks: Kiora's Follower, Paradise Druid
- Land ramp: Crop Rotation, Harrow
- Clones: Clever Impersonator, Progenitor Mimic
- Recursion: Eternal Witness, Regrowth
- Removal: Beast Within, Reclamation Sage
- Draw: Preordain, Serum Visions, Risen Reef
- Tutors: Chord of Calling, Signal the Clans
- Forks: Narset's Reversal can be a repeatable for four mana since the copy of Reversal can bounce the original Reversal back to your hand.
- Tri: Frontier Bivouac
- Fetch: Ash Barrens, Evolving Wilds
- Pain: Yavimaya Coast, Karplusan Forest, Shivan Reef
- Battle: Cinder Glade
- Bounce: Simic Growth Chamber, Izzet Boilerworks, Gruul Turf
- Utility: Mystic Sanctuary, Kessig Wolf Run
- Check: Sulfur Falls, Rootbound Crag
More Expensive Lands
