TheVectornaut on Insane ramp idea - please help

Elvish Piper and/or Quicksilver Amulet are very strong in casual ramp builds running a lot of large creatures. Assuming they resolve, they also let your other creatures slip past countermagic without needing other silver bullet cards. Ruric Thar, the Unbowed is certainly a decent way to punish noncreature decks if there are enough of those around. Akroma, Angel of Fury feels almost too narrow to me but she's certainly not bad. The first creature that comes to my mind for such a slot is Etali, Primal Storm . It's relatively cheap, can cascade into other threats, and is particularly spicy in multiplayer games.

In my deck at least, Planar Portal is almost exclusively used to fetch the single copy of Primal Surge or a safety Vexing Shusher if I'm suspicious of rogue counterspells. However, I don't play against nearly as much countermagic as you seem to, so I wouldn't count on a 6-drop artifact with a game-ending activated ability resolving in the first place. Something cheaper like Eldritch Evolution or a delirium Traverse the Ulvenwald would be easier to resolve, at least in theory. Or, you could just run more copies of the cards you want to tutor so that you naturally draw them instead. Building a toolbox may allow more options but it can be less consistent than a more traditional approach. Speaking of toolbox cards, Klothys, God of Destiny falls in that category here. She's quite strong in a midrange shell but doesn't offer much that would help in ramp (unless your table is running a lot of fetchlands). The graveyard exile would mostly be valuable as tech against decks making use of their yard for shenanigans and I'd only want her in those matchups.

I seemed to have made the same mistake with the misread. Good thing I didn't drop any money on it before catching it. I was looking at other legendary creatures that cost 6 or more so it would fit both tutors and I landed on Akroma, Angel of Fury and Ruric Thar, the Unbowed . Think these could go really well as I don't have much for flying. Also thinking about Klothys, God of Destiny to deal damage to small creatures at the beginning of games and Planar Portal to be used like Fierce Empath but also able to grab Prowling Serpopard to make sure things resolve or Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma Heroes' Bane Seedborn Muse as they cant be found by the current tutors.

I know I am straying from the OP a little bit but there are some other options for tutoring you can fit into an Eisha Commander deck.

Archmage Ascension , Planar Portal , Tamiyo's Journal and Ring of Three Wishes all can tutor to hand. The Ascension is slow but once it comes online it turns every single draw into a tutor. The portal is mana-heavy but repeatable. The journal is probably the worst but an option. The Wish ring is oddly worse than the portal and mythic instead of rare?

But if you combine Ring of Three Wishes with Contagion Clasp it becomes as repeatable as the Planar Portal .

articred on Colorless Eldrazi

hey Kashedbowl

Man do I love my eldrazi! The players in my group not so much.

So we know that the Eldrazi are big, beefy and love to stomp, they need tons of ramp especially going pure colourless, but they also need a bit of help to reduce the cost to get them out. Jhoira's Familiar is cheap and drops the price down.

Metalworker is going to be a must for you imho, if you are going to be running that many artifacts, chances are you are going to have a few in your hand and this little gem will help bring out those fatties fast! I've dropped Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger turn 4 in my voltron deck with Metalworker.

Sandstone Oracle can help out with card draw

Tutors really are a bane for colourless, even more so for Eldrazi. Planar Portal, Mind's Eye and Citanul Flute can help with that. Planar Portal can help you pick up your Urza's lands, if you are going to run with Tron.

Running with Scorched Ruins and throwing away 2 Wastes is a pretty sweet ramp, dump 2 lands, get 4 mana.

Hope this helps in any way.

ChickenBoy13 on Ulamog, the Infinite

I'd replace Dunes of the Dead, Quicksand, Sequestered Stash, Sunscorched Desert, Urza's Factory, and Warped Landscape with Wastes, Loreseeker's Stone with War Room, Orazca Relic with Burnished Hart, Ruin Processor and Deathless Behemoth with Void Winnower and Spawnsire of Ulamog, and replace Luxa River Shrine with Conduit of Ruin.

If you want to go a bit faster, Planar Portal is a little slow, so I'd replace it with Eye of Ugin. If you're having trouble with creature heavy decks, I'd replace Scour from Existence with Ugin, the Spirit Dragon.

Other than that, this list looks pretty good!

I really like Angel themed decks, but the only problem is, most angels are just super expensive and looking at your deck list, there is just no ramp, except very few cards... Im just gonna type some cards, maybe you'll like some, most likely not all of them, just so you have some larger pool of cards to choose from. :)

Myriad Landscape/Burnished Hart is alright; Land Tax is just auto-include in most decks; Caged Sun is also good, but you need to ramp into it somehow; Sword of the Animist is ok, but you need to swing with a creature and there are no Haste enablers (not even Lightning Greaves.

First of all, I would cut exile board wipes, since it just hurts mono-white without ramp the most (Play of the Game and Perilous Vault). You could hold priority and cast Teferi's Protection, but.. dont really know about that... :D

Sunscour should have really good place in mono-white deck.
Endless Horizons - is something like budget of Land Tax, but can also help to thin your deck after you get enough mana on board.
Planar Bridge,Planar Portal,Thran Temporal Gateway,Belbe's Portal,Cryptic Gateway - to either search for anything or put big stuff directly on board. Urza's Incubator should be there to reduce mana cost of your big angels.

Card draw in white isnt the best, so using artifacts is really helpful, both for ramp and card draw: Show

Some mana rocks for sure: Show

Some ramp with white creatures and spells: Show

Planar Portal is a hilariously terrible card.
