I do have this deck in paper and it over performs most games to be honest. It’s not cEDH buts it can play very close to it with the right hand.

As for replacements Boseiju, Who Endures can be replaced with Nature's Claim

Phytoburst can be replaced with a lot of things I’ve debated Boon of Boseiju recently

Survival of the Fittest can be replaced with Fauna Shaman although it isn’t nearly as powerful

Tamiyo's Safekeeping has a ton of potential replacements buts it’s super cheap and a common from the most recent set and I think it’s worth picking up

As for Gaea's Cradle the deck runs fine without it. I just added it in about a two weeks ago. It’s not necessary I just wanted to get one

Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth is super strong card with paired with Arbor Elf because you can untap any of your lands including Wirewood Lodge the untap selvala a second time.

Mana Crypt can be replaced with Ancient Tomb maybe? But there really isn’t a replacement same goes for Jeweled Lotus I would recommend just adding more ramp or lands to balance out the mana count in the deck if you had to go without them.

LeonSpires on Sexy Bird Boy: cEDH Teshar

@ McToters Thank you for checking out my list and taking the time to comment! Most of the time the goal of my list is to find a loop utilizing Teshar that goes infinite as soon as possible. Example (1) Teshar + Myr Retriever + Ashnod's Altar + Memnite. Example (2) Teshar + Lion's Eye Diamond + Salvage Scout. These are only a few examples of many as the deck gets its consistency by running numerous redundant effects.

The only time this is not the plan is when a silver bullet like Grafdigger's Cage, Rule of Law, or Null Rod is in play. In these cases the goal is to dig for removal for the silver bullet.

I don't often sac my entire board. But I have sometimes sacrificed most of the artifacts I control in response to another player casting Dockside Extortionist.

Roar of Reclamation: Not only is it's CMC too high but in cEDH I would be worried about returning opponents silver bullets or cards like Lotus Petal, Jeweled Lotus or Lion's Eye Diamond.

I do think Second Sunrise is a fantastic card in a casual Teshar list where the goal isn't to combo out as soon as possible but to create value engine and win in the long run.

Gleeock on Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur's …

golgarigirl I'm actually more pumped for Streets of New Capenna as well due to originality & my lack of caring about Baldur's Gate... Though I have hopes for both of these sets to offer alot of multiplayer mechanics. I'm a sucker for scaling multiplayer cards & multiplayer game altering mechanics. Commander legends had all of the monarch courts, which I am still all about - though it had chase cards like: Jeweled Lotus which I feel was this FOMO mistake, which others feel was a wild success. My hope for Capenna is that it is less tribal, more machiavellian politics & just innovative to the respective shards. I have great hope that my beloved will finally not be some sac-focused theme like another Korvald or all the other Jund sac-theme that they keep pigeon-holed.

Let me know what you think of each suggestion...

Bitterblossom/Reassembling Skeleton + Contamination = Fun times

You really need more token production such as...

Grave Titan - ETB and attack token production

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip - Easy to trigger, creates a token to defend itself

Liliana, Dreadhorde General > Lili Ves - Static ability/draw, token production, removal and wincon

More Artifact ramp would help such as....

Mana Crypt, Mana Vault and Jeweled Lotus all put in work.

Additional Draw would really help like....

Syphon Mind - Cheap $, each opponent discard 1, you draw 3. Good value all around

Necropotence - When you need cards, you get cards.

Phyrexian Arena - Simple and easy

Read the Bones - Least impactful but the scry is really clutch

Various.....

Yawgmoth's Will - Best card black can buy. Don't sleep on this

Dismember - I've found it useful, I like the ability to kill most creatures with 1 mana

The Meathook Massacre - While unsure if this is the best fit, it seems to go well with your tokens. Plus, the lifegain helps offset some of black's lifeloss cards

Damnation - When things need to die

I have several ideas of cuts if you would like to hear them. Looking forward to your response

Jeweled Lotus > Lotus Bloom IMO

Given that 25% of your deck is artifacts, have you considered adding a Cloud Key/Semblance Anvil or even an Ugin, the Ineffable as a cost reducer? Cost reducers are useful on their own or in the combo below...

Cost Reducer + Sensei's Top + Mystic forge = Draw your entire deck.

What is the purpose of Tomb of the Spirit Dragon? Why not add a different utility land like Kor Haven, another mana fixer or better yet Riptide Laboratory? Riptide allows re-use of snapcaster, trinket mage or save your commander.

Sun Titan + Angelic Renewal + Blasting Station = GG. Angelic renewal is useful on it's own, particularly with ETB effects.

Counterspell > Stoic Rebuttal

Crush Contraband seems too expensive for what it does. Potential swaps include....

  1. Fierce Guardianship - Countering for free and bluffing to do so is powerful
  2. Dig Through Time - Help you dig a little further
  3. Mind Stone - Ramp when you need it, draw when you don't. Bringing your commander a turn earlier is helpful
  4. Mystic Remora - Somewhat redundancy for rhystic study. Not needed, but I'm almost always happy to draw this, even late game.
  5. Ancient Tomb - Can hurt, but ramp is ramp and this help a fair bit

Swap Evolving Wilds + Terramorphic for Prismatic Vista/Fabled Passage.

Let me know what you think of each suggestion.

I got Barktooth Warbeard, and I really liked what legendofa said and got Gang Up and Jeweled Lotus. That's pretty generic.

To fit Barktooth's flavour text, I might actually go with a goad plan that also wants opponent's creatures to die. Kardur, Doomscourge and Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant among all the other great goad cards would go in here, as well as an instant removal plan around Toshiro Umezawa, Syr Konrad, the Grim and Revel in Riches. As Lotus wants me to focus on warbeard, having a combat trick based voltron plan fits with Toshi. Seems convoluted, but I like it.
