Kamahl's Druidic Vow

Kamahl's Druidic Vow

Legendary Sorcery

(You may cast a legendary sorcery only if you control a legendary creature or planeswalker.)

Look at the top X cards of your library. You may put any number of land and/or legendary permanent cards with converted mana cost X or less from among them onto the battlefield. Put the rest into your graveyard.

I like the idea but I'd suggest a few additions.

Kamahl's Druidic Vow is a nice way to cheat some walkers into play.

Sorin Markov while a bit expensive can add a great deal of pressure just killing off weenies and if you get to use the ultimate you can really mess with an opponent.

Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth to help fix mana.

Seeing how you already have Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth why not add Cabal Coffers for the mana. Also, you may consider wanting to run Mutilate for similar reasons.

Part 2

Other Cards that you could consider cutting

  1. Ondu Giant => Seedguide Ash this card is one more mana expsive and has to die inorder to get the lands, but could be such a good upside. This dieing with your commander reads ramp 3 draw 3 cards and gain 3 life
  2. Soratami Mirror-Guard I get what you are doing here, but I feel like there are better payoffs for this
  3. Timbermaw Larva => Rampaging Brontodon trample is 1,000% better on this card
  4. Wakeroot Elemental 5 greens for a 5/5? way overcosted
  5. Wave-Wing Elemental again similar argument to Windrider Eel not that big of an impact
  6. Wild Wanderer good but could have better options
  7. Aetherflux Reservoir I know this is good in commander but why? No synergy at all, there has to be a better card slot here
  8. Elixir of Immortality I used to put this in all of my decks too, but it is counter productive to your stragay with cards like Splendid Reclamation and The Mending of Dominaria
  9. Wayfarer's Bauble There is better ramp than this in green
  10. I see why you have Jiang Yanggu but I feel like there is stronger cards than that. I cut the card to tutor Journey for the Elixir for him sorry :(
  11. There are a bunch of other better than Ranger's Path you could add, I'll show them in the recommendations
  12. Future Sight and Ominous Seas both seem strange here. I get future sight can draw cards, BUT I feel you should use mana sinks rather than off the top of your library draw
  13. Ghostly Flicker is on thin ice, like yes you have all the etb creatures but sometimes it is a dead card. meh at best?

Other Cards that you could consider adding

This is where the fun begins and your wallet cries

  1. You want Nissa, Who Shakes the World great card, it is a mana doubler ramp, and also you just win with the ultimate
  2. I heard you like ramp try Tireless Provisioner and pick up one for me while you are at it please
  3. Here is a gaint list of green ramp Harrow , Growth Spiral , Explore , Khalni Heart Expedition , Roiling Regrowth , Grow from the Ashes , Urban Evolution , Migration Path , Natural Connection , Nissa's Renewal , Nylea's Intervention , Spring / Mind , Animist's Awakening , Omen of the Hunt
  4. Keeping your life total at a high level Kazandu Nectarpot , Grazing Gladehart , Retreat to Kazandu , Jaddi Offshoot
  5. Mana Sinks, you are going to have a lot of mana, might as well do something with it Kamahl's Druidic Vow ummm.... yes? Kefnet the Mindful one of my favorite Gods, that doesn't have a place. I look forward to getting attacked by him Sprout Swarm it is really easy for this card to be "free"
  6. Win Cons Blackblade Reforged yes, all the yes Kamahl’s Will All the lands become creatures lol Crash of Rhino Beetles oh crap a 15/15 oh no Oran-Rief Hydra meh, but it could be good?

  7. Other just good cards Frilled Mystic , Trygon Predator , Plasm Capture Gush , Tragic Lesson , Simic Charm , Rampage of the Clans

That is all I can think of at the moment. I'm sure I'll have more la

Interesting how there are no creatures. I have a few suggestions Savor the Moment . You don't need to tap Planeswalkers to use them so it is like using thier abilities sequentially.

The Elderspell . Even if your opponents don't have any planeswalkers you can sacrifice your own in order to power up the other planswalkers you have.

Maybe throw in some more planeswalkers who Can make creature tokens or become creatures themselves for Sword of Truth and Justice .

Lastly, Kamahl's Druidic Vow . Just trust me on this one.

As far as newer player decks go, this is far more together than I expected. It should be perfect for casual play. The tutor package that can look for removal or threats is a solid spine for the deck.

In terms of cards to consider that are cheap and still do well, I'd look at Ayula, Queen Among Bears as a removal etc option, which plays nice with changeling effects that can take advantage of samaruai synergies.

Mangara of Corondor is a feature of classic lists, loving blink effects and sacrifice to break the symetry of his effect.

Vivien's Arkbow never found its place in competitive lists, but still puts creatures from your deck on the battlefield, which plays really nice with the existing tutor package.

1 mana legendaries will do good even if they aren't perfectly 'on theme' - Zabaz, the Glimmerwasp , Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter are both cheap rn.

Blackblade Reforged points to legendary land synergies, but legendaries that put lands into play have had their price pushed up by commander and Scapeshift decks. For that price reason, I will reccomend against becoming a Kamahl's Druidic Vow ramp deck.

Bushido likes being blocked by a lot of creatures, making Lure effects strong, but samarai isn't well represented as a tribe. This means that it would need to fill out ranks with your Changeling Hero type cards.

Finally, the biggest piece of advice- cards aren't expensive because they are good, they are expensive because they are in short supply, and everyone needs lands. Making your manabase good is the place to invest money - there are cool, format warping, cards at $0.20, but to play them you need good lands. Look for lands as they rotate out of standard and pick them up - they'll be cheapest as there is a spike in supply, and after a few set rotations you'll have a solid set of cards to build from.

TheVectornaut on Insane ramp idea - please help

I like Ant Queen as a budget mana sink. Vivien, Monsters' Advocate , while maybe not too exciting, is totally fine as well. Endbringer , on the other hand, is not functional in this deck as it currently stands. To even cast it, you need to draw the single copy of Rogue's Passage because nothing else is producing the colorless mana requirement. As for the other Eldrazi, I do like Ulamog's Crusher for decks that just want as much annihilator as possible, although Pathrazer and Artisan are better when you have enough mana for them. For Breaker of Armies , I imagine it would mostly be trying to draw heat away from your other creatures so you can get Toski triggers or lethal damage. In that case, I feel like the job could just as easily be handled by the cheaper Noble Quarry or the higher value Treeshaker Chimera . Savageborn Hydra is another creature I wouldn't recommend. For the most part, it will function identically to Heroes' Bane . The major problem is that if you Surge into it, it will enter as a 0/0 and die immediately. On the subject of Primal Surge , there is always the option of running Genesis Wave instead. It's less explosive and you'd need to keep in mind the average CMC of the cards in the deck, but it will never hit 0 things after paying 10 like Surge hypothetically can. If the price tag is prohibitive, there is a world where you lean even harder into the legendary matters gameplan and run Kamahl's Druidic Vow instead. Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig is one legendary I probably wouldn't bother with. I'd rather have something on 3 helping me ramp into even nastier options. For Polis Crusher , unless you are dealing with a ton of enchantment creatures, I think Kogla, the Titan Ape makes more sense here.

Card discussion aside, I would highly recommend EDH as a format that supports casual multiplayer games. If you want tips for a build, I'm happy to help. For pauper, my experience is much more limited, but I'll still try my best.

Hello Zodia,

Blackblade Reforged reduces the equipment cost by {4} if you equip a legendary creature.

Arvad the Cursed a +2/+2 lord for all of your other legendary creatures - seems expensive but this is the only +2/+2 lord I have seen in pioneer.

Heroes' Podium acts as a Sliver Legion for all of your legendary creatures, meaning, if you have 4 creatures on the battlefield, all your creatures get +3/+3.

Kamahl's Druidic Vow it's the Collected Company for your deck, plus you get to put in the lands you find into the battlefield.

Mox Amber is a must include for legendary creature decks because you can use it to cast all of your creatures.

Tyrite Sanctum makes your gods indestrucable and can turn your legendary creatures into gods and then make them indestrucable.

Urza's Ruinous Blast is a one-sided board whipe because all your creatures are legendary.

Kolvori, God of Kinship  Flip is so good in your deck that you need three of them because this will increase your odds of drawing it in the early game and then tempo into other legendary creatures.

I hope this helps.

Thanks,

Philosopher

Thought you'd appreciate the true singleton format for this one. As for why Vorinclex, well it seems like Spike and Timmy have helped you figure that out ;)

Urza's Ruinous Blast and Primevals' Glorious Rebirth : Originally these were contestants, but this started out as a Party Matters deck (Wizard, Cleric, Warrior, Rogues) but I ended up not having enough of a balance of those types to warrant focusing heavily on the mechanic.

Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain : The point of the deck is to not cast the legendary spells. Also, she has her own deck.

Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage : This is one that was cut after deciding I had too many Wizards when I was still looking at Party Matters. Might warrant revisiting.

Kamahl's Druidic Vow : The primary reason this isn't in the deck is I don't have it. Otherwise I dunno what I'd cut.

Marchesa, the Black Rose and Shalai, Voice of Plenty : Damn that's a good combo. I'll need to source a Marchesa, but I have a Shalai coming in the Secret Lair drop. WHAT TO CUT?!

Day of Destiny : Don't has. Would be glorious w/ Arvad the Cursed .

Anafenza, the Foremost : Similarly, don't has. Will have to source as it's glorious.

Blackblade Reforged : Too many other good options to include this, unfortunately.

Heroes' Podium : I really like this one. Didn't know it existed. Will have to source.

Farseek : No idea what to cut. Also probably didn't find it when going through cards and was giving priority to LEGENDS

Thran Temporal Gateway : I've no excuse as to why this ain't in except that I wanted to use Sisay to cheat, not anything else. Which isn't a good excuse but it is mine.

Fblthp, the Lost : Wow yeah I do need one of these.

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite : Wouldn't go in here anyway. She'd go into Mono-White. And I'm not gonna get my hopes up on getting more than one.

Avacyn, Angel of Hope : If I had an extra, lol. She's basically an auto-include in any white deck.

Sigarda, Host of Herons : See above.

Eerie Ultimatum : Another card that...I wish I had.

Ruinous Ultimatum : Ehh,, I feel like one ultimatum is a bit much for the deck and I'd rather Eerie.

Weatherlight : Valid point. Now, ugh gotta figure out how to fit it in.

Legacy Weapon : Bad Vorthos. Bad.

Rhystic Study : Bad Spike. Bad

Curiosity : ...bad Johnny, bad.
