Rogue's Passage Discussion
4 hours ago
Hey, nice version of Alesha.
New sets Modern Horizons 2 and Strixhaven has lots of budget goodies for Alesha. The first two cards can tutor for and put Master of Cruelties into your graveyard.
- Vile Entomber : best card of the bunch to consider adding since it's repeatable Entomb with a deathtouch body who Alesha can reanimate.
- Unmarked Grave : tutor for any nonlegendary card and put in your graveyard.
- Goblin Bombardment : now a $1 and it's one of the best sac outlets in Commander especially with Cruelties. After making an opponent have 1 life sac Cruelties to end that opponent and repeat next turn by reanimating Cruelties.
- Karmic Guide : now a $1, powerful with Alesha because she can reanimate it which then can reanimate any other creature in your graveyard. Karmic can put itself back into your graveyard by not paying the echo cost making it easily repeatable.
- Zephyr Boots : give Alesha flying evasion and it can be repeatable loot to fuel her reanimation.
- Access Tunnel : another Rogue's Passage , less mana cost to activate.
Viscera Seer is a one drop sac outlet to abuse reanimation of the same creatures with Alesha and it also can help your draws with repeatable scry. Solemn Simulacrum can be repeatable basic land ramp and draw when reanimated with Alesha. Ravenous Chupacabra can be repeatable creature removal.
Exotic Orchard is another rainbow land. Spectator Seating and Vault of Champions are Bond lands that ETB untapped if playing multiplayer Commander. Talisman of Conviction and Talisman of Hierarchy are two more two drop mana rocks.
If interested in any of these suggestions then I offer more advice including cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

Erebos, Bleak-Hearted can give you card draw and removal options.
The equipment package makes it look like there might be a Voltron sub-theme to get Elenda big and punch in. Fallen Ideal would give evasion and Dark Privilege would give protection in an aristocrats-y way. And Rogue's Passage could be a nice swap for Reliquary Tower if you're not drawing very much.

I used to play -Eldrazi Stompy in Legacy 3-5 years ago, before switching to EDH due the LGS where I had moved to having a large EDH community (pre-lockdowns). However, I'm currently in a position where I might be able to play some Legacy events in the near-future, and I want to update my deck accordingly. But I think it's worth briefly noting the developmental-chain that led to the current decklist that I own..
Ironically enough, this deck was originally based on a "budget" Vintage list from The Mana Source (watch it to have a chuckle over how much less the Reserve List cards used to be). My original list was extremely close to this, except invert the 1:4 ratio of Chalice of the Void / Null Rod , and I (originally) ran Simian Spirit Guide ..
Out of the entire decklist, it is the Manabase that has fluctuated the most. For starters, I immediately cut Ghost Quarter after the deck's "maiden journey" due to most decks in Legacy run enough basic lands to render GQ's utility virtually worthless.
This led to me experimenting with running 2-4x Mishra's Factory for about a year before eventually cutting them altogether.
I also bought my copies of City of Traitors one at a time over the course of several months, and it felt right once I got to 3..
Near the end of the period when I was playing this semi-regularly, I noticed that some games would be lost due to simple chump-blockers, so I decided to throw in a copy of Rogue's Passage . But this was immediately before competitive Legacy events dried up out of nowhere, and therefore haven't had the chance to live test any changes since...
Something else that I had noticed was that more & more lists were using Walking Ballista , which intrigued me because the deck needs more Removal, and I'm almost never happy to draw Dismember either. So I replaced 2x Endless One s with WB's..
Karakas seemed to also be in almost every competitive-level list ever, so I eventually decided to get one myself.
I think the most important consideration is Karn, the Great Creator . Not only is it a Restricted in Vintage power-level lock-piece, but turning the Sideboard into a toolbox is huge. Unfortunately, no two decklists seem to agree at all on what said toolbox should contain. Therefore I am at a loss.
The other, far more recent card that has found it's way onto my radar is Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth . This land generally serves the exact same purpose as Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , with the exception of the possibility of a pain-free Dismember , but can otherwise be paired with Elvish Spirit Guide & Cavern of Souls to spawn a -variant sometime in the near-future..
All forms of Delver & Miracles have always been an easy win. I usually don't even bother to Sideboard..
Burn & various Storm decks ultimately come down to if I can drop an early lock-piece or not.
The kind of decks that I've had the biggest problem with are Stoneforge Mystic decks and BUG variants, particularly Shardless Sultai. Generally because a lack of removal spells, and Dismember isn't always enough take out a Tarmogoyf ..
(But I also think it's worth mentioning that this was all when Deathrite Shaman was still legal)

First of all, what a fun deck! A couple of adjustments - I don't know that you have enough elemental synergy to really get value out of Risen Reef , although I could see where it would be interesting as a target for copying. I think your mana base may need a little work - you have a lot of lands that come in tapped. I would drop Rimewood Falls , Thriving Isle and Thriving Grove , and replace with maybe 1 utility and 2 basics. Here are a few other things you may want to consider for cards to include:
Selesnya Eulogist will make copies of any token you have. The keyword Populate definitely may come in handy here.
Sporemound is a repeatable token generator.
Good luck! I bet you will have lots of fun with this deck!

Hey, well done so far, but Zelalpa looks way out of place, almost a meme. You can build your own Zelalpa with Syr + equipment :)
Consider more lands or better yet mana rocks? With a mana curve avg. of 3.7 that's high for only 33 lands and no mana rocks. You risk not being able to cast spells from your hand because you're land screwed. Mana rocks and other additional mana sources can help gameplay.
- Sol Ring
- Arcane Signet
- Knight of the White Orchid : Knight, land ramp, can get a Plains dual land such as Godless Shrine .
- Forging the Tyrite Sword : ramp with two treasures, third turn it's an equipment tutor.
- Commander's Sphere
- Orzhov Signet
- Boros Signet
- Rakdos Signet
- Mind Stone
Some other ways to help gameplay are to include more repeatable draw:
- Sram, Senior Edificer
- Mask of Memory : equip, repeatable loot.
- Zephyr Boots : equip, flying, repeatable loot.
- Midnight Reaper , Knight, helps against board wipes.
- Akiri, Fearless Voyager
Sram and Akiri are not Knights, but they're worth including because of repeatable draw effects with equipment. Can also improve game play with other draw effects:
Armory is like draw since it can tutor for your best equipment.
Some budget land upgrades to consider:
- Command Tower
- Exotic Orchard
- Unclaimed Territory
- Path of Ancestry
- Nomad Outpost
- Caves of Koilos
- Battlefield Forge
- Rogue's Passage : make Syr unblockable.
- Axgard Armory : equipment tutor.
- Smoldering Marsh
- Ash Barrens
Would you like more advice? I offer more advice in another comment. Good luck with your deck.

Working on making an aristocrats version of Lathril, Blade of the Elves and I need reliable ways to get him past blockers in order to get the best use out of his ability. So far I have Rogue's Passage and Whispersilk Cloak for unblockability and am considering a couple of the swords, anyone have any other good suggestions?

Have you thought about putting something like Rogue's Passage or other utility land in
