Kestia, the Cultivator Discussion
1 month ago
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!

Boy, there has been a lot of clamoring about moving various commanders up to High Power lately. It kinda makes sense that it'd be one of the most contested tiers, but the problem here is that tier 3 should really just be split up into two tiers--whoever it was that suggested that idea some time ago, I agree. The old fogeys who are generally always in favor of the status quo look at tier 3 and see Azami, Lady of Scrolls , Kaalia of the Vast , and Atraxa, Praetors' Voice and say that Teysa Karlov and Krav, the Unredeemed and Niv-Mizzet, Parun and Anafenza, the Foremost and ahem Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker aren't worthy of high power, but neglect all the other commanders in high power ( Nath of the Gilt-Leaf , Kestia, the Cultivator , Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper , Thada Adel, Acquisitor , etc.) who aren't quite so good as the previous examples.
Basically, if it provides an easy win condition for a control/stax deck or is a dumb cumpster for some colorless infinite mana combo, the consensus is that it's at least tier 3, but apart from that, the criteria seem to be a little vaguely applied as far as said tier goes. I think it'd be easiest to just make a tier 3.5 and adjust the criteria definitions rather than move a whole bunch of commanders up and some commanders down, but that's just me.

Not sure if you're still looking for some help but I saw a comment from you asking for recommendations on this deck. If you're still going with the idea of Voltron I'd personally cut cards like Cold-Eyed Selkie , Dreampod Druid , Giltspire Avenger , Nylea's Colossus , Qasali Pridemage , and Whitewater Naiads . Everything but the Druid and Colossus don't have synergy/good enough synergy with enchantments in my opinion and could be replaced with stronger enchantments or auras. Other creatures that I think could go are Kestia, the Cultivator and Kitsune Mystic . Kestia because with a voltron gameplan you aren't going to be going wide and you even have cards that make it so you only want to attack with one creature so 6 mana to Bestow just for +4/+4 and one cards a turn isn't worth it in my opinion. The Mystic while nice probably won't do much since you want just about everything on Tuvasa so moving auras around doesn't help you out.
For non-creature spells the board-wipes, Phyrexian Rebirth and Winds of Rath could be replaced with spot removal or counterspells but I'd say this is personal preference. Last cut I'd say would be Aura Shards because while it is a good card if you take the recommendations to cut down on creatures you probably won't trigger it very often so a strong aura or other enchantment will do more for you.
Other than that all I can say is you might want to try out Open the Vaults for if you get milled or Tuvasa dies while a ton of auras are on her. I also want to make it clear this is my opinion and I'm not some competitive Tuvasa player. These were just my ideas of how to make the deck into more of a voltron deck like the comment I saw said the deck was.
