JRaynor on Alesha, Who Gets Things Done

Perpetual Timepiece is an excellent budget way to fill the graveyard. :)

I feel a bit of a split between the "creatures in graveyards" theme and the "delirium" theme. One wants you to run a ton of creatures in your deck (which you do, at 36), while the other wants you to have more variety in your card types. I would probably stick with the creatures in graveyards theme, since 1) you have no fetch lands 2) Perpetual Timepiece exiles itself, if you go for delirium you can run stuff like Mishra's Bauble instead.

If you want to go more for delirium, I would add more filtering cards like Gather the Pack. Vessel of Nascency is also great since it puts an enchantment in the graveyard.

Contract Thanks for the suggestions! Tbh they'e all good cards for the deck the main reason is I have too much anxiety when I try to find what to take out nowadays. I know cards like excavation mole look janky but they really do help with consistently casting Hogaak asap, which I like. I don't know if there is a right or wrong but I know its been hard to find a Sacrifice to buy irl, Priest is good probably over Perpetual Timepiece and I've thought about it before just dont know why I haven't pulled the trigger, probably will if I can trade cards in. And Ouphe is good, youre probably right Im just scared of it getting in the way, but Im sure it deserves a spot, I just dont know where I would want to put it.

Well met, young callant! I have some suggestions with your names on them. Such a strange coincidence.

You'll need Black Lotus, this verson of Sol Ring, perhaps a dual land or two...

Jests aside, let's do this.

So, I see budget, I see counters, I see mill. Let's start with mill.

One does not simply play a graveyard deck bereft of the following: Satyr Wayfinder finds some lands whiles stocking the bin. Grisly Salvage is morbidly efficient, finding creatures and lands. Winding Way does the forenamed, whereupon it sometimes betrays you (Don't look it in the eye). Grapple with the Past brings stuff back and loads the bin. It feels great. Funeral Rites is fine and straight-forward. Ransack the Lab is cheap whiles bearing efficacy.

If you're feeling betaken to your graveyard chicanery, Perpetual Timepiece does an absolutely lovely job of stocking the bin.

Backup versions of the commander's ability are evermore a cruciality. Sevinne's Reclamation is great, as with Sun Titan. "Six mana?! :(" you say. "It's worth it! :D" I respond.

A little more on the affluent side, but The Gitrog Monster, Ramunap Excavator, and Dread Return could be worth inclusion, for they are quite splendid.

Ahem. DEATH'S OASIS?! It mills, it fills, and eventually it kills. Moreover, it is three to cast, thusly on-theme.

Okay, now counters!

(I've never built any counter-themed decks. You have been warned.) Upon my presaged failures, all I have to proffer is Inspiring Call and Armorcraft Judge. Take it or leave it.

Unto the intrinsic:

Let us protect thine commander! Selfless Spirit is out of budget yet amazing, Saffi Eriksdotter is of a similar role, and Dauntless Bodyguard, along withal Selfless Savior, are budget options for choice.

Ramp, ramp, ramp. I care not that your curve is low, ramp! Rampant Growth, Nature's Lore, Edge of Autumn, ilka of these are fantastic.

There are two routes in commander decks (when playing fairly); a low-curve with a foison of card draw or a higher curve with less card draw. Low-curve = more card draw. I'd add Painful Truths, Sign in Blood, Funeral Rites, Ransack the Lab

I am biased, but I put Once Upon a Time in literally all of my green decks. 'Tis most lovely each time I cast the gest.

And therefrom is the finis of my comment. Fare thee well and may fortune betide!

Perpetual Timepiece would give you more in your graveyard, id swap it out for Golgari Signet

JRaynor on Alesha, Stinging Machine-gun Punch!

Personally I like to start out at 38 when building a deck and pare down as I test the deck out. It's a matter of finding enough lands to get going that's the major concern though, and having too few in the deck really hinders that sometimes. To avoid flooding, I just load up on card draw or filtering effects, which balances out the draw late game.

That's just my experience though. If you are looking to cycle the yard faster I'd recommend the surprisingly excellent Perpetual Timepiece. It looks innocuous but the cumulative value is great in Alesha. Drop it early and you're getting to look at 2 more cards every turn. Early or late, the second ability lets you emergency evacuate key parts of your combo back to your deck, to avoid an ill timed Graveyard exile effect while you're still setting up. Hopefully you won't have to do that too much, but the fact that neither side of this card is dead is actually quite meaningful.

bushido_man96 on Muldrotha - Mill your Heart Out

Molderhulk seems a bit overcosted for what it does, even if you can make it cheaper. I think Scaretiller would be better. Perpetual Timepiece is another great self-mill card for Muldrotha.

I really like Muldrotha. Lots of value, and lots of different ways to build. If you are looking into milling your opponents out, you might consider adding some Persistent Petitioners.
