Kestia, the Cultivator Discussion

Deadpan_Serious on Big, Bad Tuvasa - Budget Local League

since you said 'I love the concept of "one creature that wins" ' i take it you put all the friendly aura's on your commander? doesn't your commander get removed with something like Swords to Plowshares whenever an opponent can to cause all of those aura's to be put in your graveyard?

anyway, what about bestow creatures like Kestia, the Cultivator or Eidolon of Countless Battles ? also Steal Enchantment can give you two enchantments for the price of one. and Control Magic is pretty good.

then there's Nexus Wardens , Yavimaya Enchantress , Celestial Ancient and definitely Sage's Reverie .

also multicolored aura's like Shield of the Oversoul , Shielding Plax , Favor of the Overbeing , Steel of the Godhead .

Added the newish Auracrafting cards Estrid, the Masked, Tuvasa the Sunlit, Kestia, the Cultivator, and Estrid's Invocation.

I switched the commander to Estrid for now, but I think would be better off with one of the creatures, so that I always have some creature to cast, never finding myself with nothing but Auras in hand and nothing to cast them on.

Commander options are: Estrid, the Masked Tuvasa the Sunlit Kestia, the Cultivator Rafiq of the Many

So here are the suggestions thus far:

From yourself, Gishath, Sun's Avatar, Atla Palani, Nest Tender, and Nikya of the Old Ways.

dbpunk suggested Xenagos, God of Revels (with another vote from triproberts12.

seshiro_of_the_orochi suggested Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma.

Vimozahr flew in with a host of suggestions: Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, one or more Naya Dino Commanders, The Ur-Dragon, the C13 Naya Commanders (Mayael the Anima, Gahiji, Honored One, and Marath, Will of the Wild), any number of colorless Eldrazi commanders, and Ruric Thar, the Unbowed.

I suggested Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith, Kestia, the Cultivator, Tana, the Bloodsower with either Akiri, Line-Slinger or Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, or Otrimi, the Ever-Playful.

Brutal_B suggested Kruphix, God of Horizons.

And, finally, GoblinElectromancer swoops in with Ezuri, Renegade Leader.


Not posting to provide opinions, this is just the ones in consideration.

I think you should give him a Mizzix of the Izmagnus storm deck! ... cricket noises ...

Anyway, actually, give him a deck that pumps up its creatures- equipment is less feelsbad than auras if it doesn't work but also more likely to pop off. In my experience with new players, smashing with a big creature is awesome, and if they get other things when they attack (with cards like Sword of the Animist or Bear Umbra), it feels very satisfying. It just feels cool to dictate your play and be like "when I attack, this happens and this happens and my creature is a billion/a billion! Chump block or die!!!"

To that end, I recommend Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith, Kestia, the Cultivator, Tana, the Bloodsower (probably with Akiri, Line-Slinger or Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder).

Or, if your player is more oriented toward getting that sweet, sweet value than having massive creatures, the Otrimi, the Ever-Playful precon looks fine. That way the player can also do some upgrading if they wanna.

75% Kestia, the Cultivator , built around getting value from the combat step, splashing angel tribal. Ideal turns involve attacking with a bunch of evasive creatures, drawing a bunch of cards, advancing my boardstate, and passing the turn with mana kept up for interaction.

My pride and joy; would really appreciate some feedback!
