Generally games will go really quick if you can set up a Prophet of Kruphix effect. At that point it’s really easy to outvalue and control the board. Usually it takes just one turn cycle of prophet if that to reach a win con.

I do agree that additional card draw makes Kadena run more smoothly. Beast Whisperer and Guardian Project are all stars here. I don’t know that I personally like Soul of the Harvest purely for its mana cost, but it does trigger on entry rather than cast which is a notable difference.

I have gotten to play a few games with the deck at its current build. One I came in second and another I won. There are some interesting interactions. The deck has proven resilient to board wipes and versatile dealing with opponents. MVP cards have been Seedborn Muse and Vesuvan Shapeshifter .

Seedborn Muse + Havengul Lich + Flash let me pull way ahead after board wipes winning me the game.
Scroll of Fate has proven to be a great way to dodge counter magic for must have creatures like Seedborn Muse . With this deck Scroll of Fate basically reads draw a card and play this card it is uncounterable.
Vesuvan Shapeshifter let me use Chromeshell Crab multiple times to swap 2/2 manifested lands with my opponents beaters.

Makes me wish Prophet of Kruphix was still legal. I think I am going to work on the manabase for now as the next steps.

This is definitely going to be an opinion-filled thread, but I'll throw my hat in.

I disagree wholeheartedly. In fact I'd go so far as to say Strixhaven is the only set I've been actually excited for in what feels like ages. Eldraine was somewhat exciting but before that... Dominaria? Again this is entirely subjective and I'm not here to tell anyone they're wrong about their opinion on a product. But I'm looking forward to Strixhaven.

Introduction to Annihilation is the worst example I could possibly think of to argue blurring the line between colors. Scour from Existence , Universal Solvent , Meteor Golem , Unstable Obelisk , Spine of Ish Sah , Colorless permanent removal is far from new or color warping. Most of the lessons, like Introduction to Prophecy , will mostly be inconsequential imo because, to be frank, they're bad. 3 for a Serum Visions ? Even mono-white isn't THAT desperate for draw.

WOTC is trying to force us into playing golgari lifegain

I'm stoked to finally get golgari lifegain support. If that's not your style, I get it, but I'm happy for it personally.

Galazeth Prismari feels like a case of catering to EDH. Adding red to your deck options and tapping artifacts for any color instead of blue feels like more of a sidegrade than a downgrade. We'll have to see how it does imo.

As for Beledros Witherbloom , a wise man once said of Prophet of Kruphix : If you think this card costs mana, you've been fooled. As for "This card may not be used in any infinite mana combo", actually it says "Flicker me". It's not in good colors for that, but I could see a BUG deck getting infinite mana out of this if they can find a way to supply the life. Deadeye Navigator says hi.

Release, experience, and hindsight will probably affect everyone's opinions on Strixhaven, as it has every set before it. So I generally try to take a "wait and see" approach, even if MTG doesn't have a great record for what I've waited for and seen recently imo.

I noticed you had Prophet of Kruphix in your future section. Unfortunately, that card is banned in commander. Of course, if you are playing with friends in your own play group, you don't have to mind the ban list lol. If you want another big flashy fish boi, Pearl Lake Ancient is a pretty good one. Also, I feel like a deck like this could use more ramp, such as Explore or Explosive Vegetation or anything you prefer. Finally, some more all around great cards in green are Genesis Wave , Primal Command and Lurking Predators as well as Finale of Devastation , and The Great Henge if you aren't too concerned about a budget.

If, with the enormous card pool of the EDH format, you can't construct a deck of the colors of your liking, without feeling the need to include (or or to a lesser extent), you might be blinded by power and lost track of the philosophy of the format.

Here's a link, for those who might be interested

Not being able to enjoy a deck without letting the splashy new "must-includes" dictate you how to build it, sounds more like a personal problem than a defect in the format to me.

Suspence89 Green has been the go-to for big splashy silly things WAY before EDH was rising up as the biggest format of them all. You can't rejoice about the old days of Prophet of Kruphix and Primeval Titan and then shake your self-proclaimed boomer head at green in its current role in EDH in the same post. If you don't like to have to include green in your deck, then don't. I'm sure there's over 15000 cards still to choose from. Hell, I've built a mono +1/+1 counter deck just to see if I could, and it turned out crazy fun. The beauty of this great game we all love is in your absolute freedom to express yourself through the cards you put in your deck. I currently have 13 decks built, not even half of them play Sol Ring . I only own 2 Arcane Signet . I have as many decks that are green (2 mono , 1 , 1 and 1 five color) as I have decks within Boros colors (2 mono, 2 mono, 1 ). There's no reason to include green in any deck you don't want to, and if you want to play green in every deck, you appear to be a green mage. Why wouldn't you feel appreciated if your color is today's special?

With the enormous amount of complaining of getting nothing and getting everything, I'm sure the paradigm will shift someday to complaining why instead of green, we need to include [insert color here] not too far in the future. Either that or we'll continue trends shown on Command Zone and EDHREC podcasts that show people already shying back from overloading their decks with green. is the 4th most represented monocolor and a shared 2nd with in two-color decks, according to EDHREC stats.

In the end, the best advice I can give is: try have more fun with the cards than with the trends, the cards will last, the trends will pass.

I've been wanting to voice his opinion for some time now and I know what the vast majority of you already think. "The color pie is fine"... It's not because we can't even agree on it. With something so quintessential and foundational, the color pie should be of upmost importance and priority when it comes to expanding this great game we all love.

That's why I'm writing this. Because I love this game and specifically this format. I started playing EDH back in Dark Ascension so I've seen everything from, how many Primeval Titan s can you make, to Prophet of Kruphix being the single most powerful card to hit any table. Don't get me wrong I loved those periods in EDH and still have many great memories of splashy games and epic wins with friends that equally invested into our LGS's edh community. As time has gone on, my inner boomer is shaking their head as cards continually show a trend that is becoming more and more disappointing.

WotC has begun the dissolving process of the color pie!

Here are just some of my observations from my experience within my EDH community. I joined a very large EDH discord community a little over a year ago. I tend to play in the mid tier but I can hang with the high decks. I find that people really love playing in mid tier and the players at that level really want an enjoyable game without sweating over every priority pass from turn to turn. Don't get me wrong, high decks and CEDH decks are truly compelling and interesting but they're just a different environment that demands a different intensity.

During my time in online magic I've built 4 decks and really expanded my knowledge and enjoyment of the game. However, the color pie problem I've noticed is this: what color should I add to my green deck?

Its too often that spoiler season reveals the next eyerolling white cards like Reidane, God of the Worthy  Flip or Starnheim Unleashed that "aRe MeAnT fOr LiMiTeD" that's just a cheap justification for neglect. Meanwhile green receives it's favorite child treatment with Esika, God of the Tree  Flip and Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Or take Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip to your EDH table and watch people not even play with you. My short point is that just in Kaldheim, the trend of color favorites has been blatantly displayed. Before you say I'm beating a dead horse, take a step back and honestly look at how EDH is becoming Green + X the gathering.

Rant over.

The tech of using Shared Summons to set up Seedborn Muse on your turn into flashing Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir in next turn, basically makes Shared Summons Prophet of Kruphix in a can. This spicy tech was originated by Abzkaban in You Just Activated My Trap Card!, and is too genius to not incorporate into my deck. I'm cutting Damnation for Shared Summons and replacing Tidal Barracuda with Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir. Cutting a board wipe hurts but I always thought Damnation is boring and also this card provides way too much value. Also, the fact that I'm cutting Damnation should speak to how lean this deck has gotten over it's many iterations.

Shared Summons is also a premium draw engine in a can if you tutor Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir and Beast Whisperer. Late game, being able to tutor two creatures with one card will let you answer pretty much any threat with a morph while also finding a piece to advance your gameplan. It's also a pickle lock in a can but the downside is that revealing the tutored cards lets your opponents know the pickle lock is coming.
