Hey, nice version with such a low budget. Only 40 cents or less for each card is an interesting idea.

Even though you're building a very low budget deck still consider some basic deck building guidelines to structure your deck? A basic structure is helpful when building any causal Commander deck to give you a good start.

The numbers in this basic structure are just a start, not all areas are covered and the final numbers may be more or less for each part. A basic structure doesn't need anything but the basics, you can add other cards to make up other areas that you want specifically with your Commander after. 10 ramp and 10 draw sources help to make a smoother gameplay experience. The balance of extra mana from ramp with the draw sources theoretically helps to have mana and cards in your hand to cast with the mana. Creatures can be part of the numbers and cards that have more than one effect that can go in many different areas are excellent and should be priority for cards to play.

Compare the above example to your current deck structure:

  • 33 lands
  • 26 creatures
  • 16 removal sources
  • 3 ramp sources
  • 1 draw source

The amount of creatures is a fine number, but there's disproportionate amount of removal compared to other areas. 33 lands with only 3 ramp sources, two of which are 4 CMC and 5 CMC are risky numbers because you can potentially get land screw (not drawing lands) as well as mana screwed (not having enough mana to cast spells). Having major potential for both of these to happen in a game can be really frustrating and is really bad for gameplay.

I believe you can never have enough draw in Commander since draw keeps the game going for you making gameplay much more fun. Harmonize is a good card, but only having it for draw is not enough.


Ghired and the other impactful cards here are high CMC and you want to get to five mana for Ghired quicker than only relying on your land drops. More ramp can help and the best ramp to add such as Sol Ring and Arcane Signet are budget cards. Unfortunately, they aren't 40 cents or less though, here's some to consider:

3 CMC or less ramp is preferred to have these plays in the early turns of the game which is best time to cast ramp since then it helps you to cast Ghired and all the other high CMC cards you want to cast later on in the game. You don't want to be casting 5 CMC or even 4 CMC ramp instead you want to use that amount of mana along with ramp that you cast before it to cast other more impactful spells.


Lots of draw especially repeatable draw sources are important to have in Commander. Unfortunately, because of the budget restriction for cards doesn't give you a lot of options, but here some to consider:

  • Garruk's Packleader: repeatable draw any time a 3 or more power creature you control ETB including creature tokens. Rhino's have 4 power.
  • Voice of Many
  • Zephyr Boots: repeatable draw, can also give equipped creature flying evasion.
  • Mouth / Feed: only can cast Mouth first to create a 3/3 Hippo then Feed can only be cast from your graveyard.
  • Mask of Memory: repeatable draw, equip any big creature you control who has evasion such as trample or flying.
  • Shamanic Revelation

Creatures who can draw are nice with Flamerush Rider to make a copy of them to then populate with Ghired. This interaction is very good with Garruk's Packleader since the more Packleaders you control the more draw you get especially when you populate a Rhino as well as each Packleader triggers to draw from the other. Three of these suggestions care about the amount of creatures you control which is good when playing tokens.

I've given you a lot to think about, but I offer more advice in another comment if you would like, including cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

You may pay rather than pay the mutate cost of creature spells you mutate.

Whenever you cast a creature spell, put two loyalty counters on ~.

-3 Reveal a creature card from your hand. If it has a mutate ability, add three mana in any combination of its colours. If it doesn't have mutate, it gains mutate until end of turn. Its mutate cost is equal to its converted mana cost.

~ can be your commander.

Create a hippo creature that enables me to build a synergystic 60-card hippo tribal deck. This includes researching which hippos at which cmc in which colours already exist, and what their abilities are. Also, bonus points if you make Mouth / Feed worth running in there.

Hey VexenX

I feel I need to remind I do not run Omnath but Mina and Denn, so take my advise with a grain of salt as usual.

Most of these cuts look very reasonable. Totally agree with Akroma’s Memorial, Elvish Reclaimer, Explosive Vegetation and Evolving Wilds. I agree less with Traverse the outlands but it’s not a vital card to have. I would also rate Terror of the Peaks more highly in this build.

The card I would not cut for sure is Rishkar's Expertise. That is because the amount of carddraw you run is already on the low side imo. I count 21 ramp spells and only 7,5 draw spells. I would gladly trade in 3-5 ramp cards for 3-5 draw spells in your list. The cool thing about card draw is that it will draw you into more cards that ramp anyway. But more importantly: it will also draw you into things to do with all that ramp! I personally do not want to ever be in the situation where I’m all ramped out with no more gas.

Ramp (21)

  • Harrow
  • Cultivate
  • Explosive Vegetation
  • Farseek
  • Finale of Devastation
  • Green sun’s Zenith
  • Kodama’s Reach
  • Nissa’s Pilgrimage
  • rampant growth
  • Ranger’s Path
  • Skyshroud Claim
  • Tempt with Discovery
  • Traverse the Outland
  • Perilous Forays
  • Azusa, Lost but Seeking
  • Lotus Cobra
  • Mina and Denn, Wildborn
  • Sakura-tribe Elder
  • Springbloom Druid
  • Mana Crypt
  • Sol Ring

Draw (7,5)

  • Rishkar’s Expertise
  • Shamanic Revelation
  • Wheel of Fortune
  • Elemental Bond
  • Greater Good
  • Sylvan Library
  • Oracle of Mul Daya (counted as 1/2)
  • Tireless Tracker

Cards I would add for sure are Garruk's Uprising and Regal Force (which turns your creature tutors into massive draw spells when required). I would also consider Garruk, Primal Hunter, Courser of Kruphix, Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip and perhaps Return of the Wildspeaker and Mouth / Feed.

But I would for sure not cut a draw spell for Garruk's Uprising. I woud at least look at it this way: you are adding another ramp spell with this set of changes by adding Finale of Devastation, so that justifies removing a different ramp spell for Garruk's Uprising imo.

Languish in here would be SO on flavor, but might harm you more than them. Just that croc art and a rescue mini-wipe might be good to have in place of one copy of Mouth / Feed.

There's a really nice promo of it available too. Not an important upgrade. Just good for flavor or if you keep a sideboard for this. Would be great against smaller tribes.

Mouth / Feed can be another good card for some card draw as well as a 3/3 token which could be useful for a budget match up.

Harmonize can also be useful for a nice draw 4

Bellowing Tanglewurm doesn’t match up with the snake and shaman theme but he will help your creatures swing in.

How about Elemental Bond and Colossal Majesty for card draw? Also a friend of mine suggested for me Mouth / Feed since it's aftermath mode can draw us a ton of cards here.
