Pray_for_Snow on Uro Commander

2 days ago

I'm going to sort my recommendations by type for now since the deck is still below 100 cards; once we get to a full deck list, I'll come back and suggest some upgrades if you still want some help.

Artifacts

The Great Henge is very easy to cast once you have Uro on the board, and continues to draw you cards/gain life for you as play more creatures.

Sol Ring is a classic card in every commander deck, unless your playgroup bans it.

Simic Signet is a cheap mana rock that helps you use any colorless lands you have to make some colored mana.

Arcane Signet gives you cheap mana in either of your colors.

Thought Vessel for the increased maximum hand size; you'll probably end up with more than seven cards in hand if you can use Uro more than once in a single turn.

Altar of Dementia for milling out yourself or your opponent. You can use the stack to sacrifice Uro if you cast him from the command zone.

Panharmonicon will double your Uro triggers when it enters the battlefield, plus a few of your other creatures or artifacts like Springbloom Druid.

Crystal Shard will let you re-use your enter-the-battlefield triggers on your creatures

Blackblade Reforged will help you deal lethal damage once you get your ramping done.

Lightning Greaves protects Uro or other creatures you want to keep around while also hasting them.

Creatures

Sakura-Tribe Elder will ramp you and end up in your graveyard at the same time.

Arbor Elf will untap a land you need instead of adding {G}, which is better if you're playing with nonbasic Forest cards.

Wood Elves gets you a Forest from your library, and can even get a non-basic one. You can use it to chump-block someone later on as well to add another card to your graveyard.

Llanowar Elves and Elvish Mystic are the same card but still useful to help ramp.

Birds of Paradise is a classic commander card and can help you block flying creatures when you don't need it anymore.

Hedron Crab mills as you ramp, and you can choose to mill yourself if you're trying to win that way.

Satyr Wayfinder mills you while also grabbing a land card to put into your hand.

Eternal Witness brings back a card you want from your graveyard.

Golgari Grave-Troll will help mill you while also being a rather tough blocker/beater thanks to its regenerate ability.

World Shaper will mill you and also get back lands you milled when it dies.

Laboratory Maniac will secure you a win if you're milling yourself enough.

Misthollow Griffin can be cast from exile, allowing you to use it to cast Uro with escape repeatedly, and it will even block flying creatures for you.

Genesis helps you recycle creatures as long as it stays in the graveyard.

Tatyova, Benthic Druid makes your ramp spells (and Uro) better.

Rampaging Baloths gives you tokens for land drops, helpful for trying to close a game with combat damage.

Roil Elemental steals creatures as you play lands.

Reclamation Sage hits dangerous artifacts/enchantments you don't want around.

Enchantments

Bear Umbra protects a key creature while also untapping all your lands.

Song of the Dryads and Imprisoned in the Moon are both excellent at removing a dangerous threat.

Zendikar Resurgent is excellent for this deck for the extra mana and the card draw.

Elemental Bond will draw you cards for your big creatures.

Crop Sigil will mill you when you want to mill, and get back something important.

Retreat to Coralhelm helps you scry cards or tap/untap creatures for playing lands. If you have a way to mill exactly one card, you can mill your top card after scrying it if you want it in your graveyard.

Wilderness Reclamation untaps your lands for later use, especially useful if you want to leave mana untapped during your opponents' turns.

Instants and Sorceries

Cyclonic Rift is your best board wipe.

Beast Within is your best single-target removal.

Counterspell, Swan Song, and Negate are good counterspells to leave open.

Voidslime is great and is a very useful and board tool for stopping combos.

Life from the Loam gets back lands from your graveyard, and mills you with Dredge.

Windfall hopefully refills your hand and can disrupt your opponents.

Cultivate and Kodama's Reach ramp you. So does Circuitous Route.

Finale of Devastation is a win condition, tutor, and reanimation spell all in one.

Lands

Alchemist's Refuge gives you flash on all your spells.

Reliquary Tower fixes any issues you might have with drawing too many cards at once.

Field of the Dead gives you tokens to block with, and is extremely easy to activate in this deck.

Arch of Orazca draws you cards with extra mana.

Blighted Woodland ramps you up.

Command Tower is a staple for a reason. The reason is that it is good. Play it.

Breeding Pool helps fix your mana and is a Forest card for your ramp spells.

Simic Growth Chamber fixes your mana and bounces back a land for any Landfall triggers you might want to reuse.

Flooded Grove fixes your mana.

Waterlogged Grove fixes mana, draws you a card, and ends up in the graveyard when you don't need it anymore.

Simic Guildgate is a gate that can be fetched out with Circuitous Route.

I left out some big money cards, since those can be upgrades for later. I didn't check if these additions would put you over 100 cards, but you can throw in anything else afterwards and just try out whatever seems fun.

DrukenReaps on Is Karametra Good Commander for ...

1 week ago

I've never seen Karametra built that way but no reason it wouldn't work well. Green is the main lands matter color and white has some nice support cards. You should definitely check the edhrec page for suggestions as that will be the majority of the cards you'll want to get.

Click me!

Lands matter and landfall more specifically are not necessarily things that win games. It will certainly rack up value but you still need something to take out life totals or choose another way to win. Taking a quick look at the page above tokens jumps out as a thing. Emeria Angel , Rampaging Baloths , Retreat to Emeria , and Avenger of Zendikar are all great at making tokens and love lands. Selesnya in general also just likes the whole token thing and has the best support for it. There is even stuff like God-Eternal Oketra which has the same trigger as Karametra though a different result.

I hadn't intended to make it a landfall deck, but when I substituted in Rampaging Baloths it really rounded things out. Don't know what I'd swap out to include more landfall without altering the way the deck plays.

austintayshus on Yarok Lands

2 weeks ago

Mosswort Bridge 's hideaway triggers twice with Yarok, I believe. That could be fun?

Rampaging Baloths seems like a strong landfall payoff.

Agent of Treachery seems like fun.

Overall this deck seems pretty solid! Maybe also add Evolving Wilds and/or Terramorphic Expanse for more landfall triggers? +1

ThaneGarrus on Mina & Denn's Supermassive Landmass | Primer V-THB

2 weeks ago

HeyBeebles awesome deck and primer I thoroughly enjoyed reading it!

I was thinking if the goal of the deck is to be unassuming would Tendershoot Dryad be a better fit than Omnath, Locus of Rage or Rampaging Baloths (I know blasphemous right) which are traditionally kill on sight targets for any land deck opponent. In addition the lack of haste or sac outlet enablers it feels like omnath is a sitting duck.

Another question would be why isn’t Elvish Reclaimer in the main board, yes it takes a turn to get going but a Crop Rotation effect is invaluable to up the consistency of the deck (especially during draw go turns)

Is Myriad Landscape and Nissa's Pilgrimage too restrictive for the deck’s colours?

Is there an argument to add Castle Garenbrig green ramp since most of your creatures are green, Living Twister a commander deck should be able to function without its commander and this mirrors M&D’s bounce ability, Tempt with Discovery vs Traverse the Outlands any land into play seems huge, Kessig Wolf Run Gives the deck late game staying power when even Dryad Arbor can swing for lethal

I’ve got an edited version on your list on my profile if you’re interested in taking a look

Thanks for the awesome deck!

Tata on *budget* High cost high reward

A lot of your creatures seem haphazardly chosen. I think you should focus on creatures that synergize with lands, so things like Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar and Ulvenwald Hydra come immediately to mind. Landfall stuff like Rampaging Baloths is also strong too.

I would cut some of the weaker interaction like Natural End and Chaos Warp and leverage the fact that you can play the BEST removal spells in the format. Beast Within and Generous Gift are both excellent replaces to Chaos Warp, and Swords to Plowshares is much better than Unlicensed Disintegration .

I'd play enchantments that make the most of your mana too, like Mirrari's Wake and Zendikar Resurgent .

I'd also play ramp spells like Nature's Lore , Farseek , Rampant Growth , and Sylvan Scrying .

Your land package would become super strong if you included Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers . Field of the Dead is also very powerful.

Profet93 on Om nom Trample

1 month ago

I'm surprised that board wipes aren't more common, and fair point, blowing up lands can get people mad.

Other potential cuts...

Questing Beast - No inherent synergy with your deck, I'm not sure what he's there for, to kill the Atraxa super friends deck? Are a lot of Planeswalkers in your meta.

Rampaging Baloths - Makes tokens which are nice, but again, don't contribute to your gameplan or provide synergy. Best synergy with Baloths in the deck would be greater good (net 1 card per token), but that's being taken out. It benefits, regal force but that's just one card

Regarding Rings vs Staff....

I haven't played with Staff to know how good it is, especially in this deck. But I do have a lot of experience with rings, currently, rings synergizes with....

  1. Deserted Temple
  2. Fabled Passage
  3. Cradle
  4. Misty Rainforest
  5. Verdant Catacombs
  6. Wooded Foothills
  7. Windswept Heath
  8. Garruk Primal Speak
  9. Karn Liberated
  10. Nissa
  11. Patron of Orochi
  12. Commander

That being said, you're absolutely right regarding the political angle, as I have done something eerily similar myself. Also, how do you go infinite exactly in that scenario you described?

Kholek on Tatyova, Help Wanted

1 month ago

I used to have a pretty competitive Tatyova. when building her you really want to focus on her ability, she is a Landfall goddess.

LANDS: 38 More Lands are needed, Terramorphic Expanse is another Evolving Wilds and triggers Tatyova twice. and what i believe is a great land card and if not a staple for this deck Alchemist's Refuge . this card with Seedborn Muse will give you practically another turn on someone else's turn.

CREATURES:
Since you going to be bring in lands allot, your going to want other creatures that play off the "Landfall" trigger.

Rampaging Baloths creating a 4/4 beast with every land can make you quite scary. Roil Elemental Stealing your opponents creatures when a land enters will give you huge advantage. Psychosis Crawler your going to be drawing lots of cards, might as well deal some damage with it. Hedron Crab and then we have a bit of mill... actually this is scary. you can play this card fast and let the hurt begin.

INSTANTS: Krosan Grip A K-grip is always a good card to have in a deck. Crop Rotation It brings in a land. and you can find Reliquary Tower . another land card that is a must have in a deck that will have you drawing so many cards. Deprive Returning cards to your hand is a great way to play lands again. this is a cheap spell with an EXPLOSIVE result.

SORCERIES: you have no land fetch cards in this deck. Kodama's Reach and Cultivate are a must have to really kick things off. Explosive Vegetation , Rampant Growth .

ENCHANTMENT: a great card for "landfall" is Burgeoning if you can get this out early is crazy ramp. if you can get it out mid to even late game is SUPER good with all the "Landfall" triggers you might have out on the table. Courser of Kruphix here is a way to play lands from the top of your library in case you don't have any in your hand. plus some extra life gain. Exploration lets you play more land per your turn. Zendikar's Roil and some more tokens per land entering the battlefield.

ARTIFACTS: once this deck starts to really take off Aetherflux Reservoir will end games fast. Alhammarret's Archive even more life and even more card draw. Storm Cauldron is a nasty card. it will stop other plays in their tracks, while giving you all the advantage.

COMBOS: There are a few combos that are optional.

Amulet of Vigor , Perilous Forays and any token generator Rampaging Baloths , Zendikar's Roil ... you can even use your opponents creatures as sac fodder if you have Roil Elemental . HOW THIS WORKS: with Perilous Forays pay sac a creature, find a land and put it on the battlefield. triggering Zendikar's Roil creating another creature. with Amulet of Vigor that land comes in untapped, allowing you to repeat this until you have all your basic land and all the triggers you could possibly want.

this is an infinite combo Retreat to Coralhelm , Walking Atlas and Simic Growth Chamber this allows you to repeatedly bounce Simic Growth Chamber to your hand and on the battlefield as many times as you want.

Biovisionary , Infinite Reflection and a token generator or Rite of Replication .

So here is my suggestions. just ways to energize with Tatyova. Hope this helps.
