I would remove any lands that enter tapped or have a chance of entering tapped, so Frontier Bivouac, Glacial Fortress, Mystic Monastery, Rootbound Crag, Seaside Citadel, Sunpetal Grove, and Temple of Enlightenment. In addition to fetchlands, Mystic Gate and Hallowed Fountain would be good additions.

Hey, nice budget version of Estrid.

I see Siona, Captain of the Pyleas. A way to win with her is Shielded by Faith. This makes an infinite combo of creating 1/1 Soldiers. Emergence Zone is helpful with this combo because then you can do it at instant speed and attack with the Soldiers on your turn to win. Open the Armory and Heliod's Pilgrim are budget tutors to get an aura. More tutors to get auras are helpful with land auras.

I see Stasis. Could expand on the pillowfort strategy of making your opponents permanents ETB tapped with Blind Obedience, Kismet, Frozen AEther. Further protect yourself with Ghostly Prison and Sphere of Safety. Wilderness Reclamation is helpful with Stasis.

Once you have a established a pillowfort then cards such as Approach of the Second Sun or Sandwurm Convergence can be win conditions. Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner is good with Convergence and Sigil of the Empty Throne. Kiora helps to make ramp to cast them and then each time a 5/5 Wurm or 4/4 Angel is created you draw.

With all the mana that Estrid can make with enchanted lands then the budget Finales, Finale of Glory and Finale of Revelation are options. Finales are good with Emergence Zone especially Glory since then you can attack with an army on your turn.


The manabase here is not ideal for three colors since there's a lot of basic lands. I realize this is because of such a low budget, but when playing three or more colors you really want to allocate more of the budget for dual lands to make it easier to cast cards. Green is the most important color because of the land auras, mana dorks and Enchantresses. Most of the land auras can make white and blue mana which is very helpful and allows for more green.

Budget lands to consider adding:

The bounce lands may not seem good, but if they're enchanted then you can untap them with Estrid which can make a lot of mana and make up for the fact they ETB tapped. Consider more low CMC land auras? Even if the aura doesn't create ramp when you tap the enchanted land it's still enchanted so Estrid can untap it that makes it worth adding. Other land auras to consider adding:

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, with this much equipment consider cards that have good interaction with equipment?

  • Sigarda's Aid: flash for equipment and equip for free when equipment ETB.
  • Open the Armory: tutor for an equipment.
  • Mother of Runes: repeatable protection for Rafiq from targeted removal, in combat or even make him unblockable in combat.

Budget lands to consider adding:

Cards that trigger an ability when you do combat damage to a player trigger that ability twice with double strike if the creature isn't blocked. This is powerful with draw effects.

Ramp that's creatures can also give you a body to equip to.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Simic Guildgate
  • Graypelt Refuge
  • Tranquil Cove
  • Dakra Mystic
  • Fog Bank
  • Guardians of Akrasa
  • Peregrine Drake
  • Dictate of Kruphix
  • Ordeal of Nylea
  • Rites of Flourishing
  • Fog
  • Holy Day
  • Blunt the Assault
  • Cancel
  • Mace of the Valiant
  • Mask of Avacyn

Good luck with your deck.

This looks like a fun deck. My only suggestion would be to work on the mana base a bit. For example, there's really no reason to be running Tranquil Expanse, a tapland with no upside. There are a lot of replacements such as Temple of Plenty for scry, Scattered Groves for fetching and cycling, or even Graypelt Refuge or Blossoming Sands for life gain. You could also look at bounce lands such as Selesnya Sanctuary, or filter lands such as Sungrass Prairie. Those are just the WG ones, but there are WU and UG equivalents for most of those dual lands.

Some other cool lands are: Treva's Ruins (a good replacement for Seaside Citadel), Soldevi Excavations (scrying for 1 generic), Halimar Depths, and Mistveil Plains (return card from graveyard and then tutor for it).

Hey, good start and upgrade of the precon. Nice Oko, Thief of Crowns :)

The creatures that make Chulane a real value engine are the ones that can bounce themselves back to your hand after they ETB (enter the battlefield):

With Chulane you can cast one of these creatures which draws a card and lets you put a land onto the battlefield from your hand. The creature can then return to your hand and you can cast it again. As long as you play a land that ETB untapped you can keep casting one of these creatures which can make a lot of draw and ramp. Whitemane and Drake are the two best of the bunch. Whitemane because it has flash meaning you can cast it an instant speed triggering Chulane during your opponents turns. Drake is only one mana making it the best to loop casting it to get value.

These creatures and to get more land drops from Chulane's trigger can benefit from more lands in the manabase. More basic lands because you can make mana the turn you put a basic land onto the battlefield and basic lands are budget land options. Normally 36 lands is a fine amount for a Commander deck, but when your General, in this case Chulane, cares about lands then playing more lands can help to get more out of Chulane.

These are some budget lands to consider adding. Mana creatures are good with Chulane because they can help to make ramp to play him faster and/or afterwards they can be cast to trigger Chulane. They're the better ramp options to play because they're creatures.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Azorius Guildgate
  • Selesnya Guildgate
  • New Benalia
  • Meandering River
  • Woodland Stream
  • Tranquil Expanse
  • Charmed Sleep
  • Planewide Celebration
  • Circuitous Route
  • Firemind Vessel
  • Commander's Sphere
  • Parhelion II
  • Jace's Ruse
  • Jace, Arcane Strategist
  • Feasting Troll King
  • Jace's Projection

I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

Hey, looks good for your first Commander deck. You haven't finished the manabase? Nice Ugin, the Spirit Dragon :)

What's the max budget for your deck? I ask because you haven't allocated yet for lands in the manabase. 35x basic lands is not going to work when you want to pay for spells. When playing five colors the manabase and the amount of color fixing you have in your deck is very important. If you don't make these things priority to focus on getting right then your deck will have a difficult time functioning when playing so many colors.

You have a good start by including the budget land ramp spells ( Cultivate , Sakura-Tribe Elder ), but you're going to want a lot more than just these spells for both ramp and more importantly for color fixing. You can build a five color manabase on a budget with basic lands using some dual lands that have interaction with basic lands, Tri lands and other budget lands.

Here's an example:


This example manabase is not ideal by any means, but it's low budget and a starting point for future upgrades. Sunken, Glade or Stream are dual lands that Farseek can search for since they're two different land types. Being able to land ramp with a dual land with Farseek makes Farseek better and helps with color fixing.

A budget manabase like this example can use color fixing from other nonland sources. Signets and other budget mana rocks that can make colored mana and ramp are options.

With Signets you can pay for the colorless mana cost with mana from any source such as a land. That mana then turns into two different colors of mana. For example if you have two Signets on the battlefield and two lands then that mana can be four different colors of mana. In this manabase example there's more green sources than others that's because green is the enabler color to help to get all the other colors with land ramp and mana dorks. There's more green than the rest because you consistently want to have green mana in the early game.

Joiner Adept lets you tap lands for any color of mana which is great color fixing when playing five colors. Chromatic Lantern is a more expensive price card that does the same thing and it's better because it also ramps. Faeburrow Elder and Paradise Druid are called mana dorks and either one can tap to make different colors of mana. Faeburrow by itself can tap to make two mana . With Jodah, Archmage Eternal on the battlefield it can make four mana . If you have Jodah and have a permanent on the battlefield that's black then Faeburrow can tap to make all five colors of mana.

Fertile Ground is an example of another source of color fixing/ramp that's different than the rest. It's an aura that enchants a land you control. When the enchanted land is tapped it makes two colors of mana; one mana that the land could produce and another mana of any color you choose.


Color fixing sources that also ramp are better than ones that don't. If you can as the saying goes "kill two birds with one stone" then it can help your deck. Including most cards that can do two different things you want are better than cards that can only do one thing you want. For example Cultivate ramps and color fixes since it can find two different basic lands. Izzet Signet taps to ramp and color fix two different colors of mana. Renegade Map only color fixes, it doesn't ramp because it only puts the land you search for into your hand not onto the battlefield and it can't tap to make mana.

Sylvan Scrying is one exception since it can tutor (search your library) for any one land and put it into your hand. That's powerful and helpful to have when you can get a land that can make any color of mana such as Command Tower or better yet Cascading Cataracts which can tap along with five other sources of mana of any colors to make all five different colors of mana. This land makes it easy to be able to make five different colors to cast spells with Jodah. Cataracts is good with ramp from mana rocks.

I have suggested a lot of cards which means if you want to include them then you'll have to make many cuts. I'm not going to give you suggestions of cuts now, but if you're interested in any of these suggestions then I offer to help to make cuts. This is the nature of building budget many colored decks in Commander; have to allocate a lot of deck spots to cards to help the manabase and to make sure your deck can function, so you can reliably cast cards. Good luck with your deck.
