Selesnya Sanctuary Discussion

multimedia on Budget Emmara Selesnya Tokens

1 month ago

Hey, nice budget version, less than $50 is impressive.

Command Tower is now less than $1 and is one of the best lands in Commander. Selesnya Sanctuary is another upgrade for a dual land. Quest for Renewal good with Emmara letting you create Soldiers or tap your tokens for other effects during each opponent's turn. Good repeatable draw with Mentor of the Meek. Glare of Subdual goes well with Renewal as opponent creature lockdown using tokens. Nullmage Shepherd can wreck opponents artifact or enchantment strategies.

Felidar Retreat is a new enchantment in Zendikar Rising for tokens. It's repeatable no mana cost Township effect or create a Cat token just by playing a land. Worth adding Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse and Myriad Landscape it adding Retreat. Champion of Lambholt can make your token army unblockable since she grows each time a token is created.

Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter combines well with Good-Fortune Unicorn to make each token created a mana dork. Jiang can put a counter on Emmara making it easier to tap her while also making mana. If going the Vehicle route for crew then Aethersphere Harvester and Untethered Express are some budget upgrades.

Rootborn Defenses and Sundering Growth are good instant spells with populate included. Camaraderie is an upgraded for Collective Unconscious and it's less than $0.50.


Cards to consider cutting:

Good luck with your deck.

At first glance here are some recommendations I have that would fit right in: Avenger of Zendikar, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, Dockside Extortionist, Parcelbeast, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Risen Reef, Tireless Tracker, Sakashima the Impostor, Spark Double, Wayward Swordtooth, Burgeoning, Sylvan Library, Valakut Exploration, Finale of Devastation, Finale of Revelation, Farseek, Nature's Lore, Amulet of Vigor, Ketria Triome, Raugrin Triome, Oboro, Palace in the Clouds a few bounce lands such as Gruul Turf, Selesnya Sanctuary, Simic Growth Chamber. I also would agree with DemMeowsephs and multimedia. Fetch lands and shock lands are crucial to have in this build, as well as having the tutors that have been recommended.

I feel like you are very light on draw, so a lot of my recommendations point to that. Mutate Parcelbeast on Scute Swarm with Risen Reef in play = insane draw. Play more land cards are always great to have in landfall decks. I didn’t suggest this, but you could add a sub theme of flicker effects to abuse Omnath, Locus of Creation landfall triggers. Clone cards that can copy Omnath and ignore legendary rule to use as a triggered ability doubler can have overwhelming results.

If I can provide anymore assistance, feel free to let me know. Good luck with your brew!

Hey, good budget version of Omnath. Nice Sylvan Library :)

For around $25 you could make several budget improvements. Some budget staples in Commander for four colors to consider adding:

Vista and Glade are lands that Wooded Foothills or Farseek can search for rather than a basic land. Farseek can search for Prairie.


Some budget cards for landfall to consider adding:

Land ramp that puts two lands onto the battlefield at the same time to trigger Omnath twice is helpful. Chamber, Turf, Sanctuary and Boilerworks are called Bounce lands and they can give you more chances to have lands in your hand to play to trigger landfall. They can also bounce themselves back to your hand which gives you at least one land drop each turn for landfall.


Omnath can benefit from some mana sinks to be able to consistently use the four mana he makes:

  • Kessig Wolf Run: it's less than $1, repeatable trample and pump Omnath's power.
  • Gavony Township: it's less than $1, repeatable counters for all creatures you control.
  • Rogue's Passage: make Omnath unblockable to do Commander damage.
  • Simic Ascendancy: repeatable counters and can be a win condition with counters only needing 20. Has very good interaction with Felidar Retreat and Gavony Township since these put a counter on each creature you control meaning each creature counts as putting one counter on Ascendancy.
  • Wargate: Mystery Booster version is less than $2. Tutor for any permanent card and put it onto the battlefield.

If you're interested in these suggestions I offer more advice about cards to cut. Good luck with your deck.

0rc on Derevi, Holder of Lanterns

For the orbs?

Let’s take out Soul Herder (It’s great but we already have Thassa, which is harder to remove), and let’s take out Growth Spiral (also good, but this isn’t a lands matter/ramp deck).

Now we need a Derevi-style mana base that can play around the Orbs.

Since we will be abusing Derevi’s untap ability we should put in all of the lands we can muster that tap for 2+ mana, such as bounce lands: Azorius Chancery, Selesnya Sanctuary, Simic Growth Chamber, Lotus Field, and maybe even Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip if it fits your budget. You can take out the pain lands as they will not be so kind in Derevi. You can run less lands overall since theoretically you will end up with more lands in hand due to the bounce.

While we’re at it, let’s go ahead and slide Faeburrow Elder in there too...

Perfect. Now we have orbs AND a Derevi-style mana base that can play around them.

Enjoy.

I have definitely taken your advise into consideration! I do own quite a few of the other dual lands and will be sure to keep them in my deck. I will be purchasing Brushland, Karplusan Forest, and Ash Barrens + Naya Panorama with my next set of cards.

I have purchased: Cinder Glade Canopy Vista Gruul Turf Selesnya Sanctuary

Hey, you're welcome.

When looking at the color requirements of the cards in your deck green is overall most important therefore Forests should be the most basic lands in the manabase. A basic Forest will do a lot more for you than a basic Mountain or Plains. Can cast land ramp spells with green and they get you the other colors especially Farseek, Lore and Skyshroud if you add some dual lands that are two different land types.

My advice is rely more on dual lands for white and red than basic lands. Lantern and Dryad help a lot for color fixing, but don't want to count on having one of them every game therefore make the manabase function without them and have them as a bonus. Grand Abolisher sticks out in white. Other than him white is the least important color here and green has many sources that can help to get you white mana.

The ratio of basic lands to use really depends on what kind of manabase you want to make. You want most lands in the manabase to be able to make green mana and on a budget this means lots of Forests. A budget manabase of Check lands, Battle lands, Pain lands, Bounce lands will have more basic lands. Compare this to a more expensive manabase of more Rainbow lands, Fetch lands, Shock lands, Battlebond lands, Pain lands, Bounce lands will have less basic lands. The expensive manabase would replace some basic lands with more lands that can make more than one color.


Budget 36 land manabase example (27 green sources, 17 red, 17 white):

Hey, nice combos, everything looks good, except the manabase.

The manabase looks like an afterthought and the biggest problem with it is you need green much more than the other colors. Green in this case gives you the best access to the other colors therefore 11x Mountain is not helping the consistency of having a green source. My advice is cut many basic lands especially Mountains for dual lands especially ones that can ETB untapped turn one to make green mana for a mana dork.

Lands to consider adding:

I see Farseek, Nature's Lore and Skyshroud Claim all good land ramp spells, but not taking advantage of them. These spells can search for a dual land that's two or more different land types, but there's not a dual land like that in the manabase. Temple Garden/Stomping Ground/Sacred Foundry/Canopy Vista/Cinder Glade/Scattered Groves/Sheltered Thicket these are dual lands that the land ramp spells can search for. If budget is a concern then Vista/Glade/Groves/Thicket give you this effect and I would include all these lands especially Glade/Vista to improve the land ramp.
