Hey, nice version of Wildborn, pretty underrated casual Commander.

Cards within the budget to consider adding:

The first of these suggestions are lands that give you value, repeatable value with Crucible. I see Grounds and Glade in the manabase which makes Lore a good two drop land ramp spell. Signal and Empath are additional tutors for your finishers creatures. Cultivate and/or Reach are not ideal, but they're pretty good with Wildborn because they basic land ramp and put a basic land into your hand which you can play because of Wildborn.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • 2x Forest
  • 2x Mountain
  • Ground Assault
  • Indomitable Creativity
  • Pillage
  • Seek the Horizon
  • Vengeful Rebirth
  • Traverse the Ulvenwald
  • Harmonize
  • Slice in Twain
  • Undergrowth Champion

Personally, lands are my favorite part of magic, so I'm very specific about them. There are many types I would recommend you put in your deck, some that require a high budget and some low so be careful what you put in the deck. Nonetheless, I would recommend the following lands: Stomping Ground , Prismatic Vista , Rootbound Crag , Copperline Gorge , Game Trail , Cinder Glade , Karplusan Forest , Wooded Foothills , Temple Garden , Sunpetal Grove , Razorverge Thicket , Fortified Village , Canopy Vista , Brushland , Windswept Heath , Sacred Foundry , Clifftop Retreat , Battlefield Forge , Arid Mesa , Sunbaked Canyon , Inspiring Vantage , Rugged Prairie , Wooded Bastion , and finally Fire-Lit Thicket . If you end up using these lands and find them helpful, I would appreciate it if you upvote and support my deck: A Deal with the Devil! Thanks, have a nice day and good luck on your deck!

Nice deck, but I have some suggestions. First off, add in some better lands. I would suggest Stomping Ground , Rootbound Crag , Prismatic Vista , Copperline Gorge , Cinder Glade , Karplusan Forest , and Wooded Foothills . I'd also add Sol Ring , I know it's not a noncreature spell but if you can get it out before you cast your commander it could be very helpful for the remainder of the game. Now if you have like a very very very very very big budget, get Gaea's Cradle . It would be amazing for you.

Force of Vigor for dealing with Leyline of the Void , Rest in Peace and Grafdigger's Cage . It will never cost mana when you need to use it and it can deal with multiple copies of said hate cards.

Weather the Storm for aggro decks like affinity (the original build, not hardened scales), naya zoo and graveyard decks using hogaak. it can also be pitched to force of vigor to deal with hate cards.

Rootbound Crag , Karplusan Forest , Cinder Glade all come into play untapped in your deck and give you mana for casting weather the storm and force of vigor for when you have no other green cards in hand.

Sheltered Thicket and Forgotten Cave are both good budget options for when you draw them and don't need more lands. The non-budget versions are Fiery Islet and Sunbaked Canyon . if you run both you get access to blue and white and can add in cards like Spell Pierce to protect your combo and Wear / Tear to deal with the hate cards I mentioned.

Hey, SideBae gave you great advice, almost too much ;)

Where to consider starting to make upgrades is the manabase. In my opinion it's the worse part of your current deck. The manabase looks like a budget beginner manabase. Want more good dual lands to go along with the rest of the good cards here. There's many lands to consider adding that are within this deck's budget.

Command Tower is the most played land for multi-colored decks in Commander and for good reason since it can ETB (enter the battlefield) untapped to make any one color of mana that you need. Cinder Glade , Sheltered Thicket and expensive price Stomping Ground are Forest dual lands meaning Nature's Lore , Farseek , Wood Elves and Skyshroud Claim can search for them and put them onto the battlefield. Being able to land ramp with dual lands is very helpful.

The next dual lands to consider are more that can ETB untapped: Karplusan Forest and expensive price Spire Garden . Since playing a lot of basic lands then Rootbound Crag and Game Trail will consistently ETB untapped. Kessig Wolf Run or the less expensive and worse Skarrg, the Rage Pits can give Xenagos or another creature trample.

Some lands that ETB tapped are fine, but these lands need to give you something that's worth it. Raging Ravine is the Gruul creature land and it's good with Xenagos ability to pump a creature. Mosswort Bridge will ETB tapped, but it's hideaway ability is worth it since with Xenagos able to double the power of a creature; getting 10 power worth of creatures is not difficult. Being able to the play the card you hideaway for mana cost is very good.

multimedia on Animar, God Of Hydras

Hey, your deck looks good except the manabase. You've neglected the manabase in favor of the rest of the deck :( This manabase is for a $100-$200 budget deck not a $400+ deck. If deck price is a concern then cut Primal Vigor since it's a redundant five drop because of Doubling Season and one of Palinchron or Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger ; use the $56+ to improve the manabase. Palinchron can be cut and replaced with less expensive price Peregrine Drake .

I would start with getting one of each of the Pain lands and Shock lands, more dual lands that ETB untapped which are wanted to cast Animar on curve. Shock lands, Pain lands and Check lands manabase is fine with basic lands. 21x basic lands is a lot for a $400+ three color deck that wants to make difficult mana cost turn three/four consistently.

Lands to consider adding:


Ancestral Statue is the only creature enabler for Animar here. Consider more than Statue?

Upgrades to consider:

Other upgrades to consider:

Creatures who ramp give you more with Animar because if cast before can help to cast Animar and then afterwards if cast can add counter to Animar. These mana dorks who can make any color of mana for Temur can help the manabase, bringing consistency of color fixing for playing Animar faster. The same can be said for creatures who can put a land onto the battlefield because it's then ramp who can be bounced and played again. There's already more Forests than any other lands which is good when playing green mana dorks. Good luck with your deck.

Yo! RG decks are interesting. Here's what I think -- feel free to disregard it:

The main attraction of running green is having access to one-mana mana-dorks. Llanowar Elves , Birds of Paradise , Fyndhorn Elves , Elvish Mystic and Orcish Lumberjack will all speed up your deck tremendously, while giving you bodies for Overwhelming Stampede or similar finishers. Exploration is a good accelerator, though it can be expensive; search for tomorrow is similar. There are some two- or three-mana dorks you might also want to consider, like Priest of Titania , Shaman of Forgotten Ways and Somberwald Sage . Having dorks ramps green faster than any other color is capable of.

Overwhelming Stampede is an excellent card; in that vein, Overrun and Triumph of the Hordes are both good finishers. If you want to put money into the deck, Craterhoof Behemoth is a great card in Legacy Elves that also works here. Grabbing Craterhoof with something like Natural Order can produce a really fast win. Green Sun's Zenith is another good tutor-spell, which can also fetch Dryad Arbor turn one.

I see you're running Nature's Lore . Farseek is a great card to fetch a mountain, especially if you choose to run Stomping Ground , Sheltered Thicket and/or Cinder Glade . Taiga is good, too, but that's pushing $200 these days... effing OG duals.

Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip is a good card, and an affordable version of Gaea's Cradle . Similarly, Slate of Ancestry is a very underrated EDH card that would be a powerhouse in this deck. In the line of card-draw, Beast Whisperer and Harmonize are worth considering.

Karplusan Forest , Spire Garden , Command Tower and Grove of the Burnwillows are four excellent non-basic, ETB-untapped lands for your colors. You should run these, if at all possible. I think they're better than Jund Panorama and Naya Panorama , as well as Rogue's Passage . You should consider Kessig Wolf Run , as well as cutting one or two lands from the final list.

Depending on how sadistic you are, you may also want to consider running some stax pieces. Thorn of Amethyst is an excellent card in most green decks, as these decks tend to produce oodles of mana and not cast too many non-creature spells. Pyrostatic Pillar and Eidolon of the Great Revel are excellent ways to keep low-curved decks in check. Harsh Mentor varies with meta calls, though it can be very strong. Stranglehold can ruin some strategies, and Price of Glory can nuke counter-heavy decks. Similarly, Vexing Shusher is useful to avoid getting countered, especially since you don't have to activate it until after an opponent casts a counterspell. Scab-Clan Berserker is worth considering.

I suggest Gamble . It's the best tutor in your colors. Eternal Witness is another pretty good card you may want to consider to get you back in the game after a board-wipe. I suggest running Grim Flowering or Nature's Resurgence for the same reason.

Your spot removal will be dependent on how hard you want to lean into Ruric Thar, the Unbowed . If you want to keep him, Reclamation Sage and similar effects are the way to go. Without him, or while thinking of him as a secondary creature, you should run Nature's Claim and/or Krosan Grip . Chain of Acid is an interesting card I've been wondering about recently, so you may be interested in experimenting with it. Hull Breach is similar to Decimate , and is often a two-for-one. Shattering Spree , By Force , Ancient Grudge , Vandalblast and Fiery Confluence are good as well.

Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion is an efficient, powerful creature that helps cycle away dead cards in your hand, all while generating mana. Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip is another super-efficient creature. Boartusk Liege is valuable for its anthem effect and not-insignificant body. Siege Behemoth is another recommendation, for obvious reasons.

Depending on your meta, Sunder Shaman , Choke , Carpet of Flowers , Flashfires and Boil are options. If you keep your mana-base with only a few non-basics, Blood Moon , Magus of the Moon and Ruination are good cards. If your meta is super aggressive, you should consider Loxodon Warhammer or Basilisk Collar in order to recoup life points. Runic Armasaur is another good consideration if your meta has a lot of fetch lands and the like.

Using Sylvan Tutor can let you stack your deck for Lurking Predators , and you can cast Worldly Tutor in response to it triggering to just fetch whatever creature you want from your deck for .

Strionic Resonator is a way to copy your general's trigger, and may be tremendously helpful. Resolving them in succession on the same creature results in quadrupled power.

From Modern Horizons, Collector Ouphe and Throes of Chaos are worth considering.

Alright, that's all I got for now. I hope you found these suggestions at least a little helpful. Good luck with deck building!

multimedia on GRUUL SMASH || Xenagos EDH

5 months ago

Hey, Fauna Shaman is now a $5 card and she can be a repeatable creature tutor. Gamble and Signal the Clans are other tutors to consider adding. Consider mixing up your ramp sources? Consider cutting Rampant Growth and Nissa's Pilgrimage replacing them with Gruul Signet and Talisman of Impulse ?

For the manabase you've forgotten Command Tower . Other lands to consider adding are: Cinder Glade (it's another Forest dual land), Karplusan Forest , Raging Ravine (Xenagos can pump it), Ash Barrens .
