Grind on Does This Look Infected?

cool deck!!!
a couple ideas - seems like any thriving land Thriving Isle or Thriving Grove would be strictly better than uncharted haven.
I don't quite understand why you have drownyard temple and isolated watchtower. those lands are not very impactful and in 3 colors it is way better to consistently have all your colors. you could consider budget-friendly Tolaria West which can tutor inkmoth nexus or karns bastion. or a very impactful, budget friendly colorless land is Scavenger Grounds, but i would probbably still prefer Reflecting Pool.
you might consider Topiary Stomper over ondu champion.
also void mirror seems super niche unless your playgroup has someone who always plays a colorless commander deck. i would not run this and would instead run some other form of interaction like Arcane Denial, Beast Within, or Reality Shift.
anyway, just some thoughts, hope it helps, cheers and have fun!!!

Guerric on [Primer] Helming the Host of Heaven: A Giada Guide

Here is what I am thinking for an update which is coming soon. This isn't a final list, but reflects my current thinking. Please chime in if you have thoughts on it!

Dawn of Hope OUT Folk Hero IN

Card draw piece out (I've considered Sigarda's Splendor, Thorough Investigation, Mangara, the Diplomat or even Vanquisher's Banner) Smuggler's Share IN

Baneslayer Angel OUT Serra Paragon IN

Eerie Interlude OUT Guardian of Faith IN

Harsh Mercy OUT Darksteel Mutation IN

Colorless Land (either Ghost Quarter, Emergence Zone, or Scavenger Grounds) OUT, Mutavault IN

I may also add in either Steel Seraph or Inspiring Overseer and take out Angel of Invention

Let me know if you have any thoughts on these changes. I'll post full justifications once they are complete.

It's an instant, cost 1 and puts your win condition directly into play... What more does it need to do... Give you a handjob? Haha agree to disagree.

Expedition Map Fits under Saga, keeps your CMC low and finds your win condition.

Scavenger Grounds graveyard removal is as clutch as the two Channel lands you added.

Crystal Vein over Temple of the False God or both?

I'm just spitballing. I really like this concept. Keep thinking outside the box.

Thanks for the upvote. I find that creature tutors and entomb effects are good enough since all the combos here only require creatures not a noncreature card. Having tutors that put creatures directly into graveyard not hand is also helpful. Diabolic Tutor would be worth paying 4 mana if I needed an artifact or enchantment to combo, but that's not the case here. Good instinct to cut Diabolic.


Karmic Guide + Reveillark + Viscera Seer is the classic creature reanimation combo that's been around for years and honestly it's perfect with Nethroi since it's an all creature combo. What's nice about Lark with all creature combos is you can include in the combo a 2 power or less creature such as Vile Entomber to setup the rest of the combo for a wincon.

Karmic + Lark + Seer + Entomber you tutor/put into graveyard Blood Artist then Lark reanimates it to give the combo a wincon. Any other creature with 2 power or less who self-mill could replace Entomber to do the same thing just puts more cards into your graveyard such as Satyr Wayfinder.

Karmic Guide + Body Launderer + Viscera Seer is the new excellent combo for all creatures combos because it too can setup the rest of the combo by looting until you get Reveillark and Blood Artist into graveyard. Then Karmic + Launderer stops reanimating each other and instead one of them reanimates Lark who then reanimates Artist for the wincon.

If playing Body Launderer and Karmic Guide, Saffi Eriksdotter + Viscera Seer combos with each of these creatures too. Having a backup Launderer infinite loot combo piece is helpful.


In multiplayer Culling Ritual wrecks and it can make enough mana including a green mana that's needed to mutate Nethroi plus more. If you're using a combo that requires attacking with Nethroi or another creature then consider adding Culling since it can clear the battlefield of all tokens who could be blockers. Culling also destroys many of the best opponent graveyard hate cards Rest in Peace, Ground Seal, Scavenging Ooze, Grafdigger's Cage, Weathered Runestone, etc.

Speaking of graveyard hate that exiles that's why I'm playing Riftsweeper. It has a unique ETB trigger that lets me remove an exiled card putting back into my library. That's also why I'm playing Elixir of Immortality to combat against exiling of my entire graveyard since in response I can shuffle my graveyard back into my library. This is mostly to combat Bojuka Bog and Scavenger Grounds, the most played graveyard hate in Commander.

I really like this deck! A well rounded, thematic budget build. Well done.

The area I see some room for improvement is in your interaction package. It’s a bit light. However, your land base has enough room to get some more interaction pieces in there. Scavenger Grounds for graveyard hate and something like Field of Ruin or Ghost Quarter to deal with problematic lands. Kabira Takedown  Flip can be another creature removal option and Sejiri Shelter  Flip can be a protection piece or a way to make a threat unblockable.

I definitely think you can spare to cut some lands, my own Omnath, Locus of Creation landfall deck only uses 39 (mind you, it has Wooded Foothills, Misty Rainforest and the like which give me extra landfall triggers). In their place I highly suggest some stuff like Roiling Regrowth, Harrow, Kodama's Reach, Cultivate, Rampant Growth, and Growth Spiral.

Other suggestions would be as follows and I made an effort to keep price in mind for all of these as best as I could: Sylvan Awakening, Primal Surge (since you have so many permanents could be used to great effect, and if used alongside cards like Laboratory Maniac, Jace, Wielder of Mysteries and maybe even something like Enter the Infinite you could create a sudden win-con out of these. Remember also if you include some of my above suggestions which tutor for land those are helping ever so slightly thin out your deck for such a win con). More would include Nissa, Vital Force, Avenger of Zendikar, Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar, Ulvenwald Hydra,Zendikar's Roil, Ramunap Excavator, Hour of Promise (noticed you have quite a few deserts to have a chance at the bonus effect), Lotus Cobra, Tireless Provisioner, Blackblade Reforged, Druid Class, The Mending of Dominaria, Wilderness Reclamation, Reshape the Earth, Jaheira's Respite, Meloku the Clouded Mirror (let's you repeat all your landfall effects), Retreat to Coralhelm and Praetor's Counsel.

As for actual lands:

Simic Growth Chamber, Reliquary Tower, Myriad Landscape, Scavenger Grounds, and Endless Sands.

Oh and here's my Omnath list I mentioned if you want to give it a glance. I know some of the stuff featured in this is pricey, but it nonetheless may still give you some ideas for now, or otherwise for the future:

Hope this helps! If I had more time to spare currently I would suggest what you might cut for these things but that may have to wait for a while unfortunately. But I'll surely return to say more sometime!

For utility lands you might consider Haven of the Spirit Dragon, Path of Ancestry, Scavenger Grounds, Mystic Sanctuary.
I also might consider Reality Shift, Resculpt, or Starstorm over shivan fire and dwindle.
Cheers!!
