Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter Discussion
4 weeks ago
As far as newer player decks go, this is far more together than I expected. It should be perfect for casual play. The tutor package that can look for removal or threats is a solid spine for the deck.
In terms of cards to consider that are cheap and still do well, I'd look at Ayula, Queen Among Bears as a removal etc option, which plays nice with changeling effects that can take advantage of samaruai synergies.
Mangara of Corondor is a feature of classic lists, loving blink effects and sacrifice to break the symetry of his effect.
Vivien's Arkbow never found its place in competitive lists, but still puts creatures from your deck on the battlefield, which plays really nice with the existing tutor package.
Blackblade Reforged points to legendary land synergies, but legendaries that put lands into play have had their price pushed up by commander and Scapeshift decks. For that price reason, I will reccomend against becoming a Kamahl's Druidic Vow ramp deck.
Bushido likes being blocked by a lot of creatures, making Lure effects strong, but samarai isn't well represented as a tribe. This means that it would need to fill out ranks with your Changeling Hero type cards.
Finally, the biggest piece of advice- cards aren't expensive because they are good, they are expensive because they are in short supply, and everyone needs lands. Making your manabase good is the place to invest money - there are cool, format warping, cards at $0.20, but to play them you need good lands. Look for lands as they rotate out of standard and pick them up - they'll be cheapest as there is a spike in supply, and after a few set rotations you'll have a solid set of cards to build from.

If I activate Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter 's second ability is while she has an Illusionist's Bracers on (assuming no other creatures are in play), will I sequentially get a 1/1 and then a 2/2, or two 1/1s?
I don't know if the Bracers copy the ability verbatim (which would mean it copies the value of X as dictated by the first ability) , or simply make it as though I used Puppet Strings on her and activated that second ability again.

Just going by Scryfall (even going as deep as <0.90c in terms of value rather than the full dollar) there are quite a few that spring up that I'd be interested in seeing made on such an extreme budget:
Rashmi, Eternities Crafter -- Simic Control/Tempo is something I'd be super interested to see on a budget, not gonna lie.
Tasigur, the Golden Fang -- Recursive politics on a budget?
Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter -- Only because I have a budget plan for her myself, I'd be interested in seeing another take on it!
Darigaaz Reincarnated -- This is more of a pet idea for me, I love Darigaaz.
Sachi, Daughter of Seshiro -- If you're looking for a tribal commander, Shamans are a very unique tribe.
Those are just some that spring to mind for me looking over the list, whether you run with any of them or not I hope you enjoy the process of budgeteering! I know I do whenever I get the itch!

Here are my favorites per color, and of course, colorless!:
Now, as I mentioned, there are plenty staples I didn't mention, here are some of the less common, more budget cards. If you want a list of all the dorks, draw engines, etc. that are at 1 cmc and should be run, just ask!

Is Rhys the Redeemed the only viable option for a good 1 mana commander? I've been thinking about how fun having 1 cmc general would be, but all my attempts at Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter and Zurgo Bellstriker decks fall short of glory. Thoughts?

I would consider cutting Krenko, Mob Boss because it's a bit slow outside of dedicated goblins, Also Soul of Zendikar because it is also slow. I personally don't really like Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter either. And while Essence Warden, Soul Warden, and Soul's Attendant are all good cards I think having all 3 is a bit much. I would consider cutting one.

Ya the deck is structured a little wierd right now as I wanted to run cards like Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter, Spawnwrith, some of the other token cards, and yes Wayfaring Temple lol, cause I like them and they weren't seeing play, but yeah even with some of the less competitive ones in there I can ramp so fast with Rhys's ability to make elves while I'm playing elves from my hand as well I can often play cards like giant adephage turn 4 or the brood master, that early in the game either they have a board wipe or you win, cause by that time you'll probly have an untap as well and be able to do many awful things, I cant remember the exact sequence but I've swung for some 200+ dmg turn 6, if unchecked this deck is crazy strong, however all of that is great on paper, when you roll up in real life and drop a turn 1 commander and proceed to ramp out of control, you get hated out of games quickly, I often have players team up to stop this decks strong early game, thank you for all the kind words as well I'd love to get in a match against yur izoni :)

Hmmm, there are a bit of things you can add in as I tried playtesting it earlier and it definitely feels a bit clunky. Your goal is to make a lot of tokens and use them to kill people. You should focus more on value cards like i.e.
- Arasta of the Endless Web
- Ant Queen
- Bloodline Keeper Flip
- Dragonlair Spider
- Mardu Strike Leader
- Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter
- Rampaging Baloths
- Artifact Mutation
- Tempt with Vengeance
Just to make some tokens while you are idle. And some kill effects like Triumph of the Hordes or effects like those. What is the main goal you want to do?
