You truly are wise!! :D

I think Light Up the Stage should be put in instead of tower that draws you cards. Reason is because tower costs a lot to play and a lot to activate. Its a HUGE tempo loss in a deck that can't really afford it. Light up the stage can be easily paid for and isn't even if bad if paid in full cost. It has helped me win several games.

I take it you're willing to risk the small potential for anti-synergy of ugin and immortal given how much potential Ugin has. Another potential idea could be as follows...

Ugin Ineffable + Sensei's Divining Top + Experimental Frenzy can help you draw your entire deck. Top is just amazing on it's own and frenzy can help with card draw. I personally took this combo out of my deck because there is little/no way to assemble it in mono red outside from gamble, but I thought it was something to consider given you adding ugin and a potential back up combo.

Volcanic offering is more of a pet card than a 100% serious recomendation. It's goodstuff, nice to have, but not necessary at all.

Warstorm Surge NEEDS to be in this deck, above flametongue even. 2 damage minimum every turn, not to mention adding a gauntlet or immortal to deal more damage. Works well with token enablers.

Inventors' Fair - Tutor, lifegain, very helpful.

POTENTIAL CUTS.....

So you've chosen mono-white, traditionally seen as a weaker colour in EDH thanks to a lack of ramp and draw. But not does it gain life, and you can work with that! First up, some creatures that care about lifegain (if you're not going full stax you'll need decent bodies to block and close out the game if your win-cons get removed): Ajani's Pridemate; Angel of Vitality; Archangel of Thune; Gideon's Company; Heliod, Sun-Crowned; Serene Steward; Serra Ascendant; Serra Avatar or Twinblade Paladin are all decent at this while Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Sun Titan are staples for a reason. I'm not convinced by the Runes, they're cool but a completely dead draw if your opponents aren't playing that colour. Other options might be Ajani's Welcome, Authority of the Consuls, Blind Obedience, Crackdown; Cradle of Vitality, Dawn of Hope; Path of Bravery; Smothering Tithe and Sunbond. The Reservoir is one of your best ways to win, so being able to search it up with Enlightened Tutor or the more budget Inventors' Fair and Tamiyo's Journal would be good. Other cards that might be good inclusions would be a wrath or two; Tithe/Land Tax; Debt of Loyalty; Lapse of Certainty; Selfless Squire; Rebuff the Wicked; Voidstone Gargoyle; Generous Gift; Emeria Shepherd; Exile and maybe some of the many Ajanis, Elspeths or Gideons. Finally, I reckon that 35 lands may even be a few too many, especially as most of them are basics. Might be worth cutting down to 30 and looking for some utility in cyclers/Emeria, The Sky Ruin/Detection Tower/Evolving Wilds etc. Could probably trade Path of Ancestry away too - it doesn't do much for you but is actually quite valuable!

Dear Kronhamilton

Golos, Tireless Pilgrim is my favorite commander, and I've been brewing around him ever since he was teased. Let me just say you've chosen an excellent commander.

(I’ve written quite a lot in an attempt to make a sort of guide for you, so if you want the short version, check out the Suggestions panel)

Golos can be tricky to build around since he can do literally anything pretty well. The easiest way to make an effective Golos deck is to lean into Golos's 7 Mana Rainbow Wheel Of Death. Before getting into that though, we need to cover some EDH deckbuilding basics.

I think the most useful advice I can give someone who is just beginning to explore the deck-building territory of EDH is to structure your deck and mind your Ratios. By this I mean it is useful to categorize the cards in your deck according to the role they fulfill.

We’ll begin by looking at some core categories that you’ll want to make your deck function effectively. Then I’ll present the Ratios (how many of each category of card) you will want to make a generic Golos deck function effectively. Next, I’ll include a detailed (but not totally complete, because I’d be here all day) catalogue of cards within some of those categories. I’ll also offer up some suggestions and input about some of your specific card choices. Lastly, since I’m about to unpack a lot of information, I will include a brief list of suggestions (see the bottom) for a generically good Golos ‘Shell’ that should be able to support most Golos strategies.

Categories

  • Draw

  • Ramp

  • Removal

  • Sweepers

  • Threats

  • Support

  • Land

Draw Show

Ramp Show

Removal Show

Sweepers Show

Threats Show

Support Show

Land Show

The art of Ratios is all about determining what combination of cards from each category makes your deck run the most smoothly.

Please note that these Ratios will not total to 99 cards. This is because you will invariably have extra flexibility to choose how your deck behaves even after establishing functional Ratios. Also keep in mind that although these Ratios do recommend you adhere to the minimum number of cards in each category, you still can choose which cards will fill those slots. The point is not to restrict your options, but instead to create a ‘Shell’ that is reliable enough to power your Threats cards, Support cards, and other cards. Whatever you do, make sure you have at least the minimum number of Draw and Ramp cards. THE MOST IMPORTANT CARDS IN THE DECK ARE DRAW AND RAMP!!!

While I ultimately suggest Ratios resembling the Basic Golos Shell, I will lay out the Ratios for several different Shells;

  • Template: a sort of baseline beginner’s guide which is commonly promoted as a place to start.

  • Basic Golos: a modified version of the Template that suites most Golos decks.

  • Control: a version tailored for a slower game with many Sweepers.

  • Aggro: a version designed to act quickly and deploy Threats before the opponents are prepared.

  • Big Mana: a version invested heavily into Ramp with the goal of deploying many end-game Threats.

  • Mega Mana: an even more extreme version of Big Mana with extremely expensive Threats.

Please remember that any suggestions I make are because I am trying to help. Ultimately, the choices you make with your deck are up to you, and I can only provide constructive criticism based on my own experience and opinions.

Good luck :)

Ratio Fixing

The most effective change to your deck would probably be adjusting the Ratios, especially with regard to your Draw cards. Applying the most basic Template Shell, you want to have at least these three quantities nailed down for a smoother and reasonably powerful deck;

  • Lands – 36 --> You have 40 Lands (Cut 4 Lands)

  • Ramp – 10 --> You have 5 true Ramp cards (Add 5 to 8 Ramp cards)

  • Draw – 10 --> You have 3 true Draw cards (Add 7 to 10 Draw cards)

What I counted in your deck Show

Mutate

Depending on how strong your Mutate subtheme is, some of your Mutate inclusions may act as engines. However, I must state that Mutate is a VERY risky and even fragile strategy since your Mutate ‘Pile’ of creatures will all be destroyed at once if your opponent uses a Removal spell or a Sweeper. For that reason, I recommend leaning out of the Mutate theme (unless the Mutate card is just straight-up insane, as in the example of Nethroi, Apex of Death).

With that said, playing a Mutate theme is your decision and I totally respect that and if you want to stick to a Mutate theme then by all means do so. I just want to be sure you know that Mutate is a risky strategy that you cannot depend on to fulfill your Ramp and Draw slots (so you’ll just need to supplement it with other cards).

Cut or Include?

At a glance your deck seems like something you have created using just your collection – and that’s great! However, if you want to incrementally upgrade your deck, then I recommend replacing most of the cards in your deck with more powerful options over time.

Here is a list of cards you should probably keep playing: - Barrier Breach (Removal, because exiling 3 enchantments is helpful in some situations)

In my opinion, there are other, better options for all of the other nonland cards in the deck, however it is up to you to decide on how you would like to proceed so I won’t intrude.

I strongly recommend cutting the Planeswalkers though – Calix, Destiny's Hand doesn’t seem to synergize much with the deck and I feel that Lukka, Coppercoat Outcast is not very potent.

Lands

Just as a recommendation, I would suggest the following spread of Basic Lands;

  • 8 Basic Forests

  • 3 of each other Basic Land

The remainder of your lands could be either more basics (which is really, really, risky if you don’t have tons of Ramp – think like 15 Ramp cards and about 12 Basic Forests) or Color Fixing Lands (see the Catalogue for more options). It is rough to have your lands enter the battlefield tapped, but unless you want to either lean into Green or spend a lot of money on lands, you will just have to live with it (I play around 5-10 tapped lands in a normal Golos deck and it isn’t really that bad).

In this section, I will list out an example of the Basic Golos Shell complete with the necessary Ratios and some examples of good/fun cards in each category. I’ll try to keep it relatively Budget sensitive and most of these cards will be relatively random – this won’t be based on any particular theme so don’t expect it to be optimal.

As a reminder:

Basic Golos Show

The Shell

Ramp – 12

Draw – 13

Removal – 7

Sweepers – 2

Threats – 12

Support – 7

Land – 36

Good Luck :)

Have you considered Clock of Omens? I've found it great for getting even more activations out of Kuldotha Forgemaster, Trading Post, and Master Transmuter, and it can also be useful for getting squeezing extra mana out of mana rocks. Also, Inventors' Fair seems like it would be pretty great here.

@ Gbeail Thanks. ^^

I feel like the value from Dark Bargain and Moonlight Bargain are all that much. Dark Bargain is something I've wanted to add in the initial list, though got cut for Jarad's Orders.

If after some field testing I need another enabler I'd most definitely add Dark Bargain in again or take out Jarad's orders because Dark Bargain tutors for 2 cards where as Jarad's Orders is only 2 creatures.

@ multimedia Thanks. ^^

Great suggestions, Fauna Shaman was already in the list haha. I prefer my Grim Flayer just a tad more over Stinkweed Imp because it let's me manipulate the top of my deck like a Sensei's Divining Top while also putting the cards I want to keep on top. Where as Stinkweed Imp puts everything in the graveyard (and the trample is nice).

Doom Whisperer is something I'll definitely try to include.

As for Ochran Assassin; The reason it's in here is not just for the deathtouch but for the second effect, "All creatures able to block have to block". With First strike it becomes a one sided board wipe, giving it Indestructible makes it completely bonkers. Kathril can give it the counters it needs or it receives them through Odric, Lunarch Marshal.

Expedition Map is there mainly to get Nesting Grounds asap. It's quite good being able to shuffle counters around on command. Other good cards are:

cool deck! i am psyched about mono red and love janky artifact combos.
looks like you could maybe use an Inventors' Fair.
any thoughts about Unwinding Clock?
also i know you dont list your combos but i found at least one that gives you infinite mana and ETB triggers - Dross Scorpion + Myr Turbine + Krark-Clan Ironworks. and then your win cons would be Reckless Fireweaver or Spine of Ish Sah. but if you want other options there is always Altar of the Brood or Staff of Domination.
also could look at Codex Shredder over Perpetual Timepiece just depends if you ever use the 2nd ability or not.
anyway just some thoughts! cheers and keep having fun!!!!

So Manascape Refractor is a strong maybe?

Cards in my deck it works with Terramorphic Expanse, Rogue's Passage, Riptide Laboratory, Minamo, School at Water's Edge, Inventors' Fair, Homeward Path, Hanweir Battlements, Flamekin Village, Evolving Wilds, Detection Tower, and Arcane Lighthouse.

Plus if my opponents play interesting lands I get those effects too. I'm not convinced it is a powerful card but I'm interested to see it in action. One really nice thing it does is make it so I don't need specific colors for Minamo, Riptide, and the 2 haste lands. A little color fixing is always decent.

I noticed that Inventors' Fair isn't in the list, but it seems like it'd be a great addition. Also, Saheeli plays really nicely with Eldrazi. It That Betrays, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, and Kozilek, the Great Distortion seem like reasonable options. Pilgrim's Eye has never impressed me because the land goes to hand, not to the field, and Hellkite Igniter also seems underwhelming to me (although I've never tested it and it seems like it could be worth playing). Overall, I really like this list! Good work!
