Hey, nice version of Yarok.

My card suggestions for you to consider can help to improve the manabase. With a $700+ budget and having Underground Sea there's many even budget lands to consider adding.

Lands to consider cutting:

  • Temple of the False God
  • Dismal Backwater
  • Khalni Garden
  • Skyline Cascade
  • Golgari Rot Farm
  • Memorial to Unity
  • Memorial to Genius
  • Terramorphic Expanse
  • Barren Moor
  • Temple of Malady
  • Temple of Mystery

These are 10 lands that ETB tapped and even though some of these lands trigger Yarok it's not worth it. There's so many better land options that can ETB untapped.

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. Nice $850+ budget, but the manabase doesn't look like you have this high of a budget. You have $130 Sliver Queen and are playing Vivid lands?

Lots of good advice here about Slivers, but no one has said anything about the manabase? You can improve the manabase even on a budget, but if you're willing to spend some then great, but either way you can make it better. The Vivid lands ( Vivid Grove ) are not good. Even if you were playing proliferate which you're not; there are much better land options. The ETB tapped Fetch lands ( Flood Plain ) are also not good unless you are able to fetch dual lands that can consistently ETB untapped which you don't have here.

The Battle lands ( Cinder Glade ) are good budget dual lands, but only if you're playing a lot of basic lands. There's only 10 basic lands here which means consistently a Battle land won't ETB untapped and when you fetch one it will also ETB tapped. When you need five colors these Fetch lands are too slow and are not helping enough if all they're fetching is a basic land or a Battle land. Consider the Shock lands ( Overgrown Tomb )? You can fetch a Shock land and have it ETB untapped for the cost of 2 life. They could replace the Vivid lands.

If not willing or can't afford to add the Shock lands then another option to consider is adding the Tri lands ( Jungle Shrine ) replacing the Vivid lands and ETB tapped Fetch lands. Tri lands also ETB tapped and are not ideal, but they can make one of three different colors the next turn. Unlike the Vivid lands they can be tapped each turn after to make a different color of mana. The Vivid lands will run out of counters and then they become really useless in a five color deck.

Manabase changes to consider.

Add the Shock lands, cut the Vivid lands:

OR budget

Add the Tri lands, cut the Vivid lands and ETB tapped Fetch lands.

Consider land tutors: Crop Rotation and/or Sylvan Scrying ? There's several Rainbow lands ( Command Tower ) here that they can tutor for which can be helpful for color fixing. Fellwar Stone is a good two drop mana rock. Good luck with your deck.

Metia on Deck does not contain a lapdance *ding* Sliver EDH

Umm, well I can't offer my exact land selection to you as it involves revised duals I can say this:

Fetches are your friend, seriously. In a 5 color deck having fetches rarely make me sad, so I would run the full contingent:

  • Polluted Delta
  • Flooded Strand
  • Wooded Foothills
  • Bloodstained Mire
  • Arid Mesa
  • Marsh Flats
  • Scalding Tarn
  • Misty Rainforest
  • Verdant Catacombs


  • Options:

    There are Mirage fetches as well, a whole friendly color cycle of them, they are 'slow' but they can still grab shock lands, and cost no life: Rocky Tar Pit , Bad River , Flood Plain , Grasslands , Mountain Valley These also have the benefit of being absurdly cheap. That being said, if you do not have access to these, I'll offer some other suggestions.

    Go up to 42-44 lands. Sure the curve hits 3/4, but I don't think the ideal is to hit 4 lands and be pleased with life, so I would suggest adding lands, and increasing consistency by removing some of the etb tapped lands:


    Here are some 'simple' 1:1 conversions for cards I think would suit the deck better.
  • Kindred Dominance -> Woodland Cemetery
  • Coat of Arms -> The Immortal Sun
  • Intruder Alarm -> Dreamstone Hedron
  • Armageddon -> Hour of Promise
  • Fellwar Stone -> Mutavault
  • Arcane Sanctum -> Sulfur Falls
  • Crumbling Necropolis -> Clifftop Retreat
  • Savage Lands -> Isolated Chapel
  • Seaside Citadel -> Hinterland Harbor
  • Frontier Bivouac -> Rootbound Crag
  • Mystic Monastery -> Sunpetal Grove
  • Nomad Outpost -> Drowned Catacomb
  • Opulent Palace -> Glacial Fortress
  • Sandsteppe Citadel -> Dragonskull Summit
  • Exotic Orchard -> Reflecting Pool
  • Door of Destinies -> Vanquisher's Banner
  • Aphetto Dredging -> Icon of Ancestry
  • Amoeboid Changeling -> Unsettled Mariner



  • Honestly I hate the Terminate and some of the other choices but I am exhausted so I thought I would offer some help as opposed to trying to offer more and simply not posting.

    Weeeeeiiiird.

    I refreshed my Volrath's Lil' Buddy, and now not only does Opulent Palace show up as a valid card, but it somehow fixed its hyperlinking too!

    ...anyone chance taoth31 could change his cube name(sol ring) to Sol Ring with the capitalization, so we can fix the hyperlink for all us poor EDH players?

    Why use Yargle, Glutton of Urborg ? Sure he's flavorful, but it's not a good card. I know you can find a budget five drop ( Mulldrifter ) that gives you better value with Muldrotha than Yargle.

    The rest of my suggestions are budget lands to help to improve the manabase:

    Lands to consider cutting:

    • Simic Guildgate
    • Dismal Backwater
    • Foul Orchard
    • Thornwood Falls
    • Vivid Grove
    • Warped Landscape
    • Skyline Cascade
    • 1x Forest

    I recommend switching the Frontier Bivouac with Opulent Palace

    Some lands to look at: Exotic Orchard , Fetid Pools , Sunken Hollow , Temple of Mystery [pairs well with the bounce lands for double the scrying opportunities], Opulent Palace [I'd replace Rupture Spire with this, at least it doesn't cost you mana and it gives you all 3 of your colors]. Obviously if you can afford or are willing to spend on shocklands they would be the best upgrades [within reason].

    You can probably safely cut a land or two and add green ramp cards like Nature's Lore , Rampant Growth , Farseek and Cultivate / Kodama's Reach .

    Please, please, please replace Manalith with literally any other mana rock. Commander's Sphere , Darksteel Ingot have the same cost and do something else or have an additional benefit. Fellwar Stone should be able to siphon at least 2 of your colors from the field. Or cut to fit in another green ramp spell listed above.

    You're really logjammed at the 5 CMC slot. I'd swap out a few for some cheaper spells so you are reliably casting spells on turns 1-3. Gift of the Deity is one I'd cut as it is pretty expensive for what it does and like all auras, increases your risk of getting 2 for 1'd. I don't know if you're built around Dralnu enough to run him.

    I am not at all happy about the reprint of Ixidron, since that card can completely ruin decks that have no way to turn their cards face-up, again.

    However, the new version of Volrath is awesome (although 5 mana for a 7/5 is definitely overpowered, in my mind), and I am excited that each deck shall contain a new incarnation of a character from the Weatherlight saga (I personally am hoping to see new incarnations of Barrin, Crovax, and/or Ertai for the final two). I personally believe that he should have been only black and blue, because I do not believe that either his personality or abilities are green, but I suppose that having three colors in his mana cost is what allows his overall cost to be so low.

    The reprint of Thespian's Stage is excellent, and I cannot believe that it was never printed in a Commander set before this.

    Rayami is almost certainly from Zendikar, judging from her (I shall presume that Rayami is female, form the name) body paint, but from what plane is Grismold?

    The artwork on gift of doom is insanely awesome, and I especially appreciate the dark atmosphere that it evokes.

    Did Exotic Orchard really need another reprint? Would it really have been that difficult for WotC to have reprinted Reflecting Pool , instead?

    However, the reprint of Thran Dynamo is always appreciated, since its price is still high, even after all of its previous reprints (which is evidence of how amazing a card it is), and the same is true for Reliquary Tower , as well.

    I also do appreciate the reprint of Opulent Palace , so I hope that WotC reprints both Jungle Shrine and Mystic Monastery in the appropriately-colored decks, as well.

    The reprint of Sol Ring was expected, but I really wish that WotC would not reprint it in every Commander deck, since it was once a very rare card, but now is very commonplace.

    With dockside extortionist, I see that WotC is continuing the trend of small and inexpensive creatures that shall prove to be supremely annoying, with two earlier examples being Treasure Nabber and Collector Ouphe .

    It is nice to see that WotC is reprinting the battle lands, or at least three of them; why could they not have reprinted all of them, or at least have reprinted Canopy Vista , as well? Sungrass Prairie is a nice card, but it has already been reprinted, and Temple Garden , Wooded Bastion , and Canopy Vista are all vastly superior to it.

    Mandate of peace will definitely annoy players of aggressive decks that focus on combat; I like the card, but its mana cost is definitely too low; I personally believe that it could have cost and been perfectly balanced.

    Thalia’s geistcaller is very nice, but, with only 1 toughness, is far too vulnerable to remain around for a sufficient duration to have a major impact upon a game without major protection; at least she has the ability to protect herself.

    Empowered autogenerator could have been nice if it either cost 1 mana less or did not enter the battlefield tapped, because it is far too slow as it currently is; I shall keep Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice in my Atraxa EDH deck and Thran Dynamo and Gilded Lotus in all my other EDH decks, because they are far faster and can more easily produce large amounts of mana.

    With ignite the future, I believe that this is the first time that a card has said “until the end of your next turn,” which is an interesting new ability, but I do hope that WotC uses it sparingly, to prevent it from being abused.

    Backdraft hellkite is very nice, with it being a repeatable version of Snapcaster Mage , and I like how it continues the trend of creatures that provide interesting and powerful effects upon attacking, with prominent previous examples being Hellkite Charger and Aurelia, the Warleader . At only 5 mana, that is a really good bargain, in my mind.

    Wow! This game finally has a legendary wall! It took twenty-six years, but WotC finally printed such a card! Its effect is nice, but rather weird.

    The reprint of Ghostly Prison is very nice, but I am very displeased that none of the reprints have re-used the original art, since I feel that the original art does a better job of conveying the idea of the card’s effect.
