Llanowar Scout Discussion

Ziabo on Casual Landfall

very good start but needs a little rounding out.

For landfall you need to be able to get more lands. Cultivate , Kodama's Reach or Rampant Growth those kind of things. Since you like creatures maybe Civic Wayfinder , Sakura-Tribe Scout or Llanowar Scout

Also need some way to keep your hand full with all of this mana like Guardian Project , Explore , Garruk's Packleader , Mentor of the Meek , Solemn Simulacrum or Soul of the Harvest

Some suggestions for wincons Overwhelming Stampede ? or abuse your buttload of mana with Genesis Wave but easily you're missing Avenger of Zendikar he should be a must with selesnya tokens.

But really like this casual feel +1 in my book :)

Have fun brewing!

Hey, well done on a budget upgrading a precon for a first Commander deck.

There's some cards in the precon to consider adding:

  • Meloku the Clouded Mirror : one of the better budget cards with Aesi because it can bounce lands you control. It can be a repeatable source of flying tokens, landfall triggers or best of all draw with Aesi.

  • Spitting Image : can copy any creature on the battlefield including an opponents creature. Retrace is the reason to include this because by discarding a land you can cast it again from your graveyard and keep doing this as long as you have a land in your hand to discard.


With Murkfiend Liege and Retreat to Coralhelm you can take advantage of Llanowar Scout and Zimone, Quandrix Prodigy who can tap to put a land onto the battlefield. This interaction if you have lands in your hand lets you trigger Aesi on your opponents turns. Can also abuse this interaction with Simic Growth Chamber or Guildless Commons because these lands can bounce themselves back to your hand. Either one lets you trigger Aesi and draw a card on each opponents turn.

Some other cards $1 or less each to consider adding:

If interested I offer more advice including cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

Btw, I found another combo while goldfishing: Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait 1 / Tatyova, Benthic Druid + Retreat to Coralhelm + Sakura-Tribe Scout / Llanowar Scout + Abundance : Play a land, use Aesi or Tatyova to dig for another land with Abundance. Put down the land with either of the Scouts. Use Retreat to untap the Scout, find another land with Abundance, rinse and repeat to put all lands from your deck onto the battlefield. Use the final land to fail to flip a land with Abundance and stack your deck in any you want. This basically results in letting you tutor for any card from the deck every single turn.

Have you considered Llanowar Scout ?

Also, your mana base is a bit unbalanced. Is that for a specific reason?

Hey, nice budget version, but why Maze's End ?

Without having other cards that can get Gates and put them onto the battlefield it's not realistic that you will be able to assemble 10 Gates + Maze. I don't recommend that you add more cards that have Gate synergy because I don't think you need the Gates + Maze strategy since it's hurting the rest of the manabase and making it more difficult to cast Slivers. However, you could expand on Gates:

On a budget playing a Guildgate or Thriving land over a Tri land is not recommended. If you're curious to see another budget five color manabase example without Gates then I'll post one in another comment.


The World Tree + Maskwood Nexus can make all Slivers in your library Gods and if you can activate Tree then you can cheat them all onto the battlefield. Tree can also when you have six lands be a Chromatic Lantern effect. Nexus is also a repeatable source of Changeling which are Sliver tokens. Gemhide or Manaweft help to activate Tree.

Amoeboid Changeling is a Silver and it has excellent interaction with Overlord's ability to gain control of a Sliver because you don't lose control at end of turn. With Aoeboid you can change an opponent's creature into a Sliver and then gain permanent control of it with Overlord. Mirror Entity is a Silver and it's ability can make all Slivers you control huge. Pair Entity with Gemhide + Sentinel to attack and then tap all Slivers to make your Slivers huge in combat.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, sure, consider cutting cards that are single effects such as sorceries for cards that have repeatable effects? It's not just Priest that's good with repeatable token sources also Korvold, Pitiless Plunderer / Ruthless Knave , Butcher of Malakir , etc. therefore expanding on tokens helps all these cards.

Some cards to consider cutting:

Some cards that are okay, but could be upgraded with budget options:

plakjekaas on Can This Turn-3 Infinite Landfall …

4 months ago

I'm playing a deck with possible infinite landfall combo's that has more pieces interacting with Retreat to Coralhelm, maybe not from turn 3, but still, redundancy is key in commander:

Oboro, Palace in the Clouds / Meloku the Clouded Mirror / Trade Routes / Living Twister can all return a land to hand for 1 mana

Walking Atlas / Llanowar Scout / Sakura-Tribe Scout / Skyshroud Ranger can then put the land back in play and trigger Retreat to Coralhelm to untap itself.

Lotus Cobra will help you make all the mana you need. Knight of the Reliquary + Retreat can put all your forests and plains into your graveyard for a big Splendid Reclamation. Tunneling Geopede / Spitfire Lagac will kill your opponents even if they'd play an Eldrazi Titan that shuffles back their graveyard. I'd also include a few ways to give haste to a creature, so you won't have to wait a turn before you can combo.

So the best tip I can give you with this combo: breach out to more colours than just Blue and White. Landfall decks just work best with Green included, because Green can get you a lot of lands into play, even when you're not going infinite. There's more landfall pieces in existence than alternatives to Retreat to Coralhelm, so that might improve the consistency of the deck, making it more enjoyable to play, even if you're having a hard time assembling the combo.

Unless you want to challenge yourself and make a Landfall deck without green. In that case I'm all for it and wish you the best of luck!

I also play a couple spicy stax pieces such as Root Maze, Orb of Dreams, Mana Breach, Overburden, and Confounding Conundrum. Some of these may seem self-detrimental, but with cards like Arboreal Grazer, Lotus Cobra, Amulet of Vigor, Llanowar Scout, and Sakura-Tribe Scout, I can break the parity of stax effects while my opponents suffer as all of their lands get bounced. Also, Amulet of Vigor triggers twice with yarok, so in combination with Root Maze or Orb of Dreams we actually get to untap our lands twice separately, leading to double mana. Arboreal Grazer and the scouts both help us combat our own land bounce effects, and are especially fun with Overburden. Burgeoning is another way we can use land bounce to our advantage, as our opponents will be unable to replay their lands without letting us do so as well. This stax route is kind of a fringe strategy, but I think it is very powerful in Yarok and makes the game much more interesting than just winning with craterhoof behemoth.
