Kenrith's Transformation

Enchantment — Aura

Enchant creature

When this enters the battlefield, draw a card.

Enchanted creature loses all abilities and is a green Elk creature with base power and toughness 3/3. (It loses all other card types and creature types.)

Coram: Kagha, Shadow Archdruid on (red) steroids, but as she's AFAIK not too popular I feel that's not saying too much. Only on your turns. Worth noting that e.g. Hermit Druid works too.

Cayth, Famed Mechanist: "I have no idea who you are." Anyway, all your creature spells coming with a free token or even counter probably has some combo potential, even if Cloudstone Curio is out.

Azlask the Swelling Scourge: Spawning Pit works well here.

Ulalek, Fused Atrocity: Dimensional Infiltrator's time to shine!

Disa the Restless: I dare you to cast Mnemonic Betrayal

Omo, Queen of Vesuva: Not just "changeling counter" since it needs to cover both creatures and land. I kinda wish the counters had their own intrinsic rules, like flying counters. Note that land creatures don't get pseudo-changeling.

Kozilek, the Broken Reality: Does a card that you need to pay nine mana for really need even a minor drawback?

Sorin of House Markov: first extort commander!

Ral, Monsoon Mage: Not a fan of the flip damage. Can't red just have their own reliable Baral, Chief of Compliance?

Volatile Stormdrake: Nerfed Gilded Drake is still pretty good; plenty of high-value creatures at MV <=4. A sorcery-speed kill spell that pierces indestructible isn't horrible either (especially if it has a good on-death trigger.)

Flare of Fortitude: kinda wish this was Flare of Angel's Grace instead.

Trickster's Elk: I kinda hate this? IIRC, Kenrith's Transformation was a break, or at least a strong bend due to time constraints.

Rampage of the Clans is pretty funny for a deck that dumps so many artifacts onto the battlefield.

Kenrith's Transformation and Lantern of the Lost are primo cantripping interaction that I put in nearly every green deck.

Gruul Signet is sussy in green decks imo. I also don't love the 4 mana ramp sorceries in a deck with a 4 mana general. like, when u even gonna cast them? and your general ramps too? and you don't even have that much high mana stuff. There are 2 mana ramp sorceries you aren't running that curve much more nicely. Nature's Lore and Farseek and Three Visits

Alright, I've made some changes based on some recent thoughts I've had about this deck, some cards I've been meaning to add + I've incorporated a few of your good suggestions Profet93, cheers:


  • Ancient Tomb
  • Garruk's Uprising
  • Heroic Intervention
  • Kenrith's Transformation
  • Last March of the Ents
  • Monster Manual
  • Return of the Wildspeaker
  • Sanctum of Ugin
  • Thought Vessel
  • Tribute to the World Tree

  • Out:

  • Archetype of Endurance - I've had success Tooth & Nailing this lad + Platinum Emperion into play for a soft lock, but I agree that the redundancy for the cost is really unnecessary + is not core to the game plan.
  • Dryad Arbor - Kept it in here for that rare but sweet GSZ tutor for turn 1 ramp, but Ancient Tomb is the superior choice by a wide margin, lol.
  • Eldrazi Conscription - Win-more and unnecessary.
  • Endless Atlas - As mentioned, better draw exists in green.
  • Green Sun's Zenith - Removed as my green targets are limited and I think I have enough tutors already.
  • Platinum Emperion - An expensive to cast, unnecessary defense card.
  • Strip Mine - Swapped in Sanctum of Ugin for this. I think the tutor potential might be more handy than land removal.
  • Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger - The douche of all douches, this guy is so expensive and is such a kill on sight boi - because he hoses the whole table & typically just makes me the enemy/target, it usually dies to removal. Like, immediately.
  • World Breaker - Swapped out for the more efficient removal spell, Kenrith's Transformation
  • Zhulodok, Void Gorger - I've had a chance to play this guy a couple times now and he's just too clunky in a non-fully colourless build

  • The average CMC is still atrocious here but that's ok, I think some of these changes will help smooth things out a teensy bit. This is my big dumb stompy funsies deck and I don't necessarily need it to be supremely optimized with the perfect curve etc. I do think the revised ramp, draw & removal suites look a wee bit better after these changes and I'm excited to see how it plays.

    Solid deck and fun primer! I've been on the fence to build either Ellivere or Gylwain, Casting Director. G/W Auras was one of my first favorite decks when I first started playing 10 years ago, and Aura Voltron was subsequently the first commander deck I put together via Tuvasa the Sunlit.

    I'm a little surprised Spirit Mantle is in your Maybe-Board, but I can see how Benevolent Blessing has a functional similarity, and has benefit of having Flash. If anything, I think Spirit Mantle could replace Unquestioned Authority, esp since you tend to draw from Ellivere quite a bit.

    Similarly, I think Sigarda's Aid could be helpful in moving it over from your Maybe-Board. In one of my last Aura decks, it let me turn some of those Aggro Auras into combat tricks, or the removal stuff like Kenrith's Transformation into instant speed shenanigans.

    My last rec is that you do have a potential combo option with Siona, Captain of the Pyleas and Shielded by Faith. Only hang up is that you need either a haste enabler like Concordant Crossroads or Crashing Drawbridge to give the tokens haste, or Altar of the Brood to negate the need for haste. It's a combo option, but your deck might not need it if the Aggro is already working well for you.

    Either way, nice build and keep up the primer writing!

    hello rakdosrunner!!

    i really enjoyed the enforce that u had describing the deck and the mechanics.

    i'm playing Lathiel for a long long time and i'm updating him a lot since then.

    all the cards that u described i alredy test it, some of then still in the deck but mostly i had cut from the deck in order to be fastier and be more "Go for the troat" (my playgroup dont play easy haha).

    firstly i wanna say the awesome cards that i wouldn't dare to touch that u metion before: Aetherflux Reservoir Authority of the Consuls Mangara, the Diplomat True Conviction Worldly Tutor Teferi's Protection Ozolith, the Shattered Spire Branching Evolution Light of Promise Well of Lost Dreams Scholar of New Horizons Tribute to the World Tree Esper Sentinel

    it took me a long time to get this deck better and i still getting some frustations but if you like to consider, here some tips of cards to be implemented in order to have a better experience with it: ( mostly of this cards i proxed it because i dont wanna spend a lot of money and because i dont have a headache changing they every 2 months when wizards bring some new things )

    starting with the nasty combos :

    God Mode ( infinity mana + infinity draw :D ) : Argothian Elder or Priest of Titania + Quirion Ranger+ Ashaya, Soul of the Wild + Beast Whisperer with Eternal Witness in the deck u can even cast your grave again

    Lathiel Gatling Gun: Walking Ballista + Heliod, Sun-Crowned or Cleric Class

    “Life moves pretty fast..” — Ferris Bueller’s Spike Feeder + Light of Promise

    ramp : Marwyn, the Nurturer : counters will get him a good ramp Mirari's Wake : awesome ramp Land Tax: can save you in early game Burgeoning : get ahead Priest of Titania : every elf in the battlefield Exploration : get ahead again Arbor Elf : very good with Selesnya Sanctuary or some mana that u need Mana Reflection: awesome ramp Circle of Dreams Druid : gaeas crandle in creature Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx : why not ? proxy <3 Crop Rotation: get those good lands in battlefield Carpet of Flowers: very good against 2 or more people Smothering Tithe : just perfect

    draw : Generous Patron: our green budget risky study, perfect in lathiel Guardian Project : good in general The Great Henge : we have big creatures so probably will cost onle 2 green mana Toski, Bearer of Secrets : unstapable, can't be countered and draw Archivist of Oghma: meh... sometimes good sometimes not, but its 2 mana

    tutors: Finale of Devastation : go for the troat Enlightened Tutor: very good tutor in our deck Eladamri's Call : get those pieces that u need Fauna Shaman : get those pieces that u need Defense of the Heart: this is funny, but moste of times works haha Yisan, the Wanderer Bard : good in general Natural Order : to the battlefield! Primal Command : say goodbye to ur grave zombie players

    utility: Akroma's Will: defense or end game Alhammarret's Archive : it's 5 mana, but double life gain and double draw Eternal Witness : u have awesome cretures that people wanna destroy so... also good piece of combo God Mode Elesh Norn, Mother of Machines : Hushbringer + Hardened Scales, but better Serra Ascendant: sooooo goood in this deck ... first piece to be tutored by yisan, the wanderer bard Angel of Destiny: go for the troat Ashaya, Soul of the Wild: combo, but also a big creature Overwhelming Stampede : go for the troat Walking Ballista: good in general andd combo Cleric Class: combo but also grave Spike Feeder : Snowball effect, one of the best synergy of lathiel, 'each turn' change counters for life/

    Good interactions : Aura Shards , Force of Vigor 2 ducks 1 shot ,Farewell exile :) , Kenrith's Transformation (interaction with draw)

    Hey, there! This looks really fun :)

    As far as making things a little more competitive, one thing I can offer is: As someone who runs an Esper combo deck, one of the biggest things you can do for a combo deck is to make your combos synergize better with everything else in your deck, and not just each other.

    Right now, I see Lurking Roper/Famished Paladin, Presence of Gond, and Healer of the Pride as an infinite combo where each piece is 1) hard to tutor, and 2) doesn't synergize with your overall gameplan of massive creatures dishing out damage.

    An alternative infinite combo that synergizes better is Savage Ventmaw and Aggravated Assault, since both those cards do things with the rest of the deck without each other.

    So, if I did the switch over to a more synergistic set of cards, I recommend replacing:

    Ageless Entity -> Lathiel, the Bounteous Dawn

    Colossal Dreadmaw -> Blossoming Bogbeast

    Enduring Angel  Flip -> Archivist of Oghma - enduring angel looks dope, but your life total shouldn't hit zero.

    Famished Paladin -> Faeburrow Elder

    Healer of the Pride -> Serra Ascendant (just broken in EDH).

    Verdant Sun's Avatar -> Old Gnawbone

    Wall of Reverence -> Smothering Tithe

    Presence of Gond -> Armadillo Cloak

    Elemental Mastery -> Kenrith's Transformation

    Alhammarret's Archive -> Aggravated Assault

    The idea behind some of the picks is to get lifegain ability out a bit more consistently, and create fuel to power your giant creatures. I also don't know what your budget looks like, so full disclaimer there: some of the cards I recommended are expensive.

    Happy building!

    Kret on Muldrotha: Budget Elemental Tribe!

    1 year ago

    Soul of the Harvest, Fertilid, Mulldrifter and Shriekmaw are good budget elementals.
    Wolfbriar Elemental is a nice mana sink in the late game.
    Consider adding backgrounds like Master Chef or Scion of Halaster.
    You are running Joint Exploration. Consider similar cards like Explore or Growth Spiral. They can let your deck gain some early velocity.
    If you play multiple elementals with evoke then a card like Village Rites becomes useful because you can cast it in response to the evoke trigger and draw 2. Card like Evolutionary Leap could also be used in response to evoke trigger to draw a fresh elemental
    Zendikar's Roil can let you go wide with elementals.
    Tatyova, Steward of Tides makes your lands into 3/3/ elementals
    Kenrith's Transformation is a great removal spell that replaces itself and can be recurred.
    Tezzeret's Gambit draws 2 cards and proliferates.
    Nissa, Voice of Zendikar puts counters on each creature for just 3 mana

    Cards I would replace:
    - cards with kicker and Vine Gecko (they are generally worse cards than regular budget ramp spells like Rampant Growth or Cultivate)
    - 6 forests because you have low mana curve (I would cut the land count to something like 36 lands, but you could also swap them for dual lands with basic land types from Kaldheim - Woodland Chasm, Dominaria United - Haunted Mire, Temple cycle - Temple of Malady or bounce lands - Golgari Rot Farm
    - Titania, Protector of Argoth because there is only one card -> Harrow that can proc her ability to make elementals
    I would also cut some of the elementals that don't have any useful abilties like Jaddi Lifestrider, Healer of the Glade, Glade Watcher, Floodhound, Offalsnout, Smolder Initiate and Slitherwisp.

    Hope you find some of the suggestions helpful.

    Rapid Hybridization, Reality Shift, Resculpt, and Curse of the Swine are some similar mono blue options. If you're looking for colors outside of blue there's Generous Gift, Beast Within, Darksteel Mutation, Kenrith's Transformation, Imprisoned in the Moon and Song of the Dryads if u don't mind turning things into lands.
