Creature — Kor Scout

I agree with DrkNinja, you really need at least some ramp.

Sol Ring and Boros Signet are both relatively inexpensive and great.

Knight of the White Orchid and Kor Cartographer are both creatures that can help you ramp and keep the pressure on.

I like the deck though, looks fun!

Hey there,

I bumped into this list and felt like leaving a comment. I love Oketra, because she’s similar to the way I play Karamentra. From that perspective, these are some tips I have for your list:

Some card I would cut:

  • Ajani’s Mantra doesn’t seem to be worth it. There are way better lifegain options
  • Divine Visitation doesn’t seem like the best fit in this deck. Most your tokens are going to be 4/4 already. That card seems better suited in a deck that only makes small tokens.
  • You are running some cards that require a +1/+1 counter synergy, but you hardly have any cards with +1/+1 counters. That theme also has no relation with your commander, so it seems a bit weird to me to include that here. I would cut some of those cards from the deck: like abzan battle priest, abzan falconer, annoy bond-kin.

Hope some of these tips match your vision for the deck!

GL & HF,

You need more lands, white does ramping poorly and you cant afford to miss a land drop ever, so probably 36 MINIMUM and 38 would be better. You need more ramp spells like Sol Ring , Thran Dynamo , Gilded Lotus , Knight of the White Orchid , Kor Cartographer , Solemn Simulacrum , Caged Sun , Gauntlet of Power and Extraplanar Lens . Also Herald of War is a very good choice as well. In short your playing big expensive creatures and you need the ability to get them out quickly. Note that the mana doublers I suggested works very well with your commanders mana sink ability.

Oath of Lieges , Land Tax , Tithe , Kor Cartographer are all good white ramp cards.

@ PartyJ ,

I didn't even think about gifting away the etb-permanents like Kor Cartographer , it seems to be pretty valuable though :D

It's great to see someone playing Zedruu the political way she should be played while still going your very own, individual way :) I wish you great luck by trying out your deck in future games and hope my suggestions will serve you well ;) Otherwise... donate them!

Hi NetholonTheArchmage. Thanks for the kind words. My main goal is to have fun playing a commander that is not widely used, which also has a kinda unique approach to the commander game. I felt that Zedruu could give this to me. I recently changed it pretty hefty, cause I felt I was playing too passively. I really try to stay away from the bad gifts part or stax in general for obvious reasons:

1.) When I choose Zedruu, I choose to play a casual and social game. Stax and bad gifts does no good for this.
2.) I want to do something that is NOT the obvious route to take.
3.) New and/or unexperienced players have a hard time with stax and bad gifts.

However I also try not to be too gentle on them, so I chose a route in between: Zedruu politics with an army of anything from fodder to semi fodder (read: tokens). There aint no freebies in life, unless I get something favour in return. Insert evil grin
I love to try to 'play' the table in my favor and I gift them tokens in return. Eventually it should serve me way more than anyone else.

My main gifts are:

1.) Mercenaries being 'lend' out. Tokens ;-)

2.) Removal; I prefer to use lots of enchantment removal. Since they can be donated away after they have served their purpose. Oblivion Ring , Detention Sphere and such...

3.) Creatures/permanents that fulfilled their role: Kor Cartographer , Mr. Sadface , even cards like Gift of Immortality .

I am still balancing this act, so your suggestions are really appealing and I think I will give them both a try. Thanks! I will be coming to your deck soon.
