Jegantha, the Wellspring

Jegantha, the Wellspring

Legendary Creature — Elemental Elk

Companion — No card in your starting deck has more than one of the same mana symbol in its mana cost. (For example, you cannot have Kitchen Finks in your deck but you can have Carnival / Carnage) (You may reveal this card from outside the game before you start and declare it as your companion. If you do, your deck must follow the companion's restrictions. You may pay to put this companion from your sideboard to your hand at any time you could cast a sorcery. This action can't be interacted with or countered. You may only choose one companion for your deck before the start of each round.)

: Gain . This mana can't be spent to pay generic mana costs.

Jegantha, the Wellspring Discussion

Hey, I have some suggestions for this deck based on some other decks I've used or played against.

I've used Domri, Anarch of Bolas to great effect in my own dragon deck, since she gives mana fixing, protection from counterspells, and creature removal.

Based on how there are zero basic lands in this deck, Realms Uncharted could be a very good way to get your mana rounded out, and to thin the deck later on.

Jegantha, the Wellspring is perfect for you commander. You wouldn't get to use the Companion ability but with 21 gold cards I think it would still go a long way

With over a quarter of the entire deck being creatures or planeswalkers, using Esika, God of the Tree  Flip's flip side can cycle all your fun stuff out a lot faster (I also think the showcase art looks fantastic).

In my opinion, Rishkar's Expertise, Primal Command, and Gaea's Blessing can fit in almost every green deck. They're versatile, and card draw in never hurt anyone too much.

I hope at least some of these helped! There are some other cards that might be good but I wasn't sure what aspect of the deck you'd want to focus on, so I tried to suggest things that would keep options open. Keep slamming those playtests and keep us updated on how it goes!

Hey, nice list of cards on a budget. You have several good cards, but also many stinkers.

Do you really play this deck? Or it is a deck you made here for fun? I ask because I don't see how this deck can win a game or consistently function well enough in a real game of multiplayer Commander. If Jodah gets disrupted you're done because your deck is relying way too much on Jodah. Problem is Jodah will be an instant target for removal when he's on the battlefield as your opponents can't let him stick around letting you take over the game. You want your deck to be able to function in gameplay without Jodah.

There's a basic deck structure you can use for a causal Commander deck that's a starting point for building a deck.

This structure doesn't cover everything, just the basics to help to make a functioning deck. For example with Jodah you will want to dedicate quite a few card spots for protection such as Boros Charm and Swiftfoot Boots for him and the big stuff you cheat onto the battlefield. Some areas such as number of lands, lands used in the manabase and ramp become much more important than others. Especially when playing five colors, needing one of each color to cast spells with Jodah and having many high mana cost cards you want to cast.


You have Command Tower which is good, one of the best lands in Commander. When playing five colors then more color fixing from lands in the manabase and ramp sources that can make any color of mana are areas to focus more on and allocate more funds to make gameplay better with or without Jodah.

For lands on a budget if basic lands are the lands you count on most then include ramp and other lands that have interaction with basic lands.

Glade and the four others are called Tango lands and they care about you controlling two or more basic lands for them to ETB untapped. Farseek can search for any one Tango land and put it onto the battlefield tapped.

You have Jungle Shrine which is good, it's called a Tri land and on a budget these lands are some of better lands you can play for color fixing. Consider more Tri lands?

I can continue with more advice in another comment. Would you like me to continue?

Good luck with your deck.

Gattison Taniwha is amazing and now I'm brainstorming ideas.

Unlife Pairing Vial Smasher the Fierce and The Prismatic Piper And doing Jund high CMC is up my alley.

DrukenReaps im so down to build a colorless deck, but I'd pick an eldrazi

RambIe Jodah, Archmage Eternal and Jegantha, the Wellspring would be neat off theme

RiotRunner789 Blim is definitely on my list.

Why not make Jegantha, the Wellspring your companion?

So if you want Zirda, the Dawnwaker as your companion (in the sideboard and always accessible to put in your hand for ), then every card you start with has to have an activated ability. If you just put him in the 99, then you don't have to worry about that requirement.

If you don't have Gilded Drake, I would take it out. There are lots of other ways to take opponents' creatures. While it has awesome value, I don't think it makes a $400 difference in your deck. I'd drop Lili temporarily and maybe put her in the maybe board for later when you can get her in. I'd look at adding more ramp. I really like Jegantha, the Wellspring with Kenrith. Something like Chromatic Lantern is a huge benefit in a 5 color deck. A budget option is Pulse of Llanowar, but not sure that will jive well with your manabase. Something like Kruphix, God of Horizons would help you carry over mana. Mirari's Wake and Zendikar Resurgent are one-sided mana doublers, like Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger. Good luck!

Oh, and Jegantha, the Wellspring is also good, especially with a cost reducer for the abilities - triggers them all at once!

9-lives on Jegantha the wellspring and generic …

How does Jegantha, the Wellspring work? Say I have Bring to Light and I want to use Jegantha, the Wellspring to pay for its full cost. Will that work? Like, does it actually count the number of mana? Or does it only pay for the colored mana and not the generic in the mana cost?
