This looks fun, great job. Maybe add in either some egg creatures, e.g. Roc Egg , Dragon Egg etc. or try Maskwood Nexus . Atla is propably the best commander to make use of it.

Hey, well done for your first Commander deck. You have good card sense on a budget and seem to already understand the importance of mana curve :)

Open the Armory can get Skullclamp or Animate Dead . Court of Grace can create flying tokens, either an Angel or a Spirit and it can be repeatable draw with the monarch. Archon of Justice has a powerful die trigger with Teysa. Sun Titan can be repeatable reanimation and 3 CMC or less gives you many options of permanents to reanimate. Titan is excellent with Animate Dead .

Swords to Plowshares is a staple instant removal spell for white, but because Teysa is a Human then Dire Tactics is a less than $0.50 option. Generous Gift is a versatile instant removal spell. Austere Command is a versatile board wipe. Fanatical Devotion is a sac outlet for repeatable protection from most removal and in combat. Mentor of the Meek can be repeatable draw when creating 1/1 tokens.


Some cards to consider cutting:

Roc Egg is a Bird Egg (circa 2019) listed as Bird.
Trufflesnout has no card text or subtype.

Also important to note: the triggered ability is part of Atla Palani, not the egg tokens she makes, which is why nothing happens if Atla Palani is not on the battlefield when the eggs die.

Related to this, it doesn't have to be one of Atla Palani's egg tokens necessarily in order to trigger her ability; any creature with the type "Egg" will trigger it. At the moment, this includes Dragon Egg, Ludevic's Test Subject  Flip, Mysterious Egg, Roc Egg, Rukh Egg, Summoner's Egg, and Chicken Egg if playing with Un-set cards, as well as anything with "all creature types" like the various Changelings and Mistform Ultimus. (Not all of the listed cards show "Egg" on the type line, but the Oracle text in the Gatherer includes it.)

Hey, you're welcome :)

What's the max budget you have to make card upgrades? When you finish making upgrades what price range can you have for total deck cost? The precon for example at $60 is low and I would hope you could afford at least $50 for upgrades. If you can afford more expensive price cards then my card suggestions will be different then if you can't. Smothering Tithe and Birds of Paradise for example are very good cards for ramp, but they might be too expensive for the budget.

What advice about upgrades would you like?

Some cards from the precon that can be cut since they're not as good as others or don't have good enough synergy with Ghired:

In Round (3) - Gideon Blackblade , Green Sun's Zenith , Serra Ascendant , Birds of Paradise , Sacred Foundry .

Out Round (3) - Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage , Ohran Frostfang , Roc Egg , Boros Garrison , Momentous Fall

Gideon for protection, lifegain, aggro creature, and removal if he gets that high; Zenith for fetch/ ramp with birds and other green creatures, serra ascendant is an EDH staple due to lifegain, aggro nature and synergies with other target list cards; birds for ramp, sacred foundry for boros because I hate bounce lands and this speeds up the deck.

Guildmage mana abilities are not as good as Trostani and are costly, Ascendant takes this spot. Momentous fall is too slow and don't see when I would play this over other cards; Frostfang is fantastic until tons of tokens are out and I am unintentionally milling myself; birds is a better roc egg, I am not running midrange but token focused so that is why it is out.

@ihazpie Thanks a bunch for clearing up the situation about Roc Egg . I do like the idea of changelings in this deck, even if I wasn't 100% on board with Mirror Entity . In response to your thought about Gishath, Sun's Avatar , im probably going to keep him. Not only is he very large, but he is basically a massive, walking, talking egg. Unless I exile something of my own, I dont actually get a changeling off Crib Swap so i don't think that i am going to include that.

Atla Palani, Nest Tender

I would include cards like Nesting Dragon , Dragon Egg and Roc Egg so you can get some triggers without the tokens she makes. Changeling cards will work as well.

Worldspine Wurm is good unrelated but there is a combo with Ashnod's Altar and Runed Stalactite That will let you just go through you your entire deck of creatures till you get the one you want. Then if possible use a card like Faith's Reward or Brought Back to get some creatures you sacrificed that turn while you were cycling through your deck.
