Cool deck!!
Surprised not to see Ashnod's Altar to help with your token generation blinkers.
Also Great Oak Guardian and Llanowar Tribe go inf with your commander. Shared Summons is playable.
Also Fiend Hunter sounds good, i think if you stack the triggers right with multiple blinks you can exile opponents creatures permanently.
Cheers and have fun!!

Hey, nice upgrade of the precon.

Lathril + Immaculate Magistrate + Copperhorn Scout combo scales to make Lathril bigger each turn you attack which can create more Elves each time and it lets you use Lathril's tap ability with all the Elves she just created after combat. Timberwatch Elf can replace Magi, but the pump goes away at end of turn. Marwyn, the Nurturer can make a lot of green mana with Magi/Timberwatch + Scout to use with a mana sink such as Ezuri. Scout's ability to untap all other creatures you control whether they attacked or not is powerful with big mana producers and a mana sink. Magi + Joraga Warcaller is another good interaction to make all Elves huge.

Birchlore Rangers has impressed me because of his interaction with Elf tokens. Able to tap pairs of them to make mana the turn they're created which is nice to cast instant speed spells or pay activations such as Ezuri's regenerate and Miara's draw when you're tapped out. It's also helpful that Elves can make green or black mana. Nullmage Shepherd has also impressed for some of the same reasons. These tapping effects along with other Elves who tap such as Lathril and Archdruid, etc. become even better with a repeatable way to untap all Elves on each opponent's turn such as Seedborn Muse and Quest for Renewal .

Instant creature tutors are helpful especially Chord of Calling with Elf tokens, but also Shared Summons which can put two Elves into your hand. Elves of Deep Shadow is in my opinion the best one drop mana Elf with Lathril because he's reliable ramp to cast her without needing a black source from a land.

Hey, good budget upgrade of the precon. Nice upgrades of Ezuri, Beastmaster, Rangers, Visionary, Domination and Revelation.

In upgrading the precon on a budget and playing Lathril I've found four areas for improvement:

  • Creature tutors.
  • Too many Swamps.
  • More ways to pump/make Lathril bigger.
  • Ways to untap Lathril after she attacks.

Some budget cards to consider adding:


A repeatable/all Elf/budget interaction is Lathril + Immaculate Magistrate + Copperhorn Scout . This combos scales to make Lathril bigger each turn you attack which can create more Elves each turn and it lets you use Lathril's tap ability with all the Elves she just created after combat.

First, put counters on Scout with Magi to give Scout a better chance to survive combat. Second, attack and untap Magi + Lathril. Last, in combat put counters on Lathril with Magi. Once Scout is big enough to survive combat you can then use Magi to put counters twice on Lathril. Marwyn, the Nurturer can make a lot of green mana with Magi + Scout to use with a mana sink such as Ezuri.

Quest for Renewal with at least 4 counters combos with Lathril + 10 Elves to make opponents lose 40 life in a cycle of players turns (opponents lose 10 life on each player's turn).

Good luck with your deck.

@multimedia: Thanks for the Tips. I will include some of your suggestions in the Future, especially Fierce Empath , Garruk's Uprising , Path of Ancestry and Shared Summons . I won't include Kiora's Follower or Vizier of Tumbling Sands because I'm not a Fan of Untapper.

@SuckassBolas: Koma, Cosmos Serpent and Hydroid Krasis are both at the Top of my Wants list for this Deck and Koma is already on its way, so that I can include it in the near Future.

@kurban1213: Thanks for your Suggestions. The whole thing around islandwalk was something I played in the first version of this Deck as it resolved around Tromokratis , but it wasn't very useful. Considering Evasion I'm currently trying to use Garruk's Uprising . Dark Depths is not bad, but I think it won't fit in this Deck. Thespian's Stage is something I consider including.

I'm sure I will be able to give an update on this Deck in one or two weeks time.

Grind on haha koma go brr

Glad you like it!! Shared Summons is a solid instant speed way to tutor up that combo or any other useful creatures.

multimedia on Riku of Two Reflections - Duping & Infinite combos

Hey, good job winning with a budget deck.

Neoform is powerful when you can copy it to then tutor for and put two creatures onto the battlefield. It can setup two win conditions: sac a four drop to tutor for Kiki/Conscripts or sac a two drop to get Biovisionary/ Glasspool Mimic  Flip. Eldritch Evolution is similar, but more expensive price and it gives you a little more control over what creatures you can tutor for. Evolution is a good way to tutor for Worldgorger by sacing a four drop letting you combo with Riku for five mana instead of eight. Shared Summons instant can tutor for two creatures or four creatures if copied.


The manabase is the main area to consider improvements as there's too many lands that will always ETB tapped. Riku is very color dependent therefore the Bounce lands help a lot for color fixing, but they should be some of the only lands that always ETB tapped since they have terrible interaction with lots of other lands that always ETB tapped. Bivouac and Path of Ancestry are the other lands to play that always ETB tapped since they're three colors. The Bounce lands have interaction with the Pathways and Pathways are some less expensive lands: Cragcrown Pathway  Flip, Riverglide Pathway  Flip and Barkchannel Pathway  Flip. Barkchannel is less than $3 at TCGPlayer.

Exotic Orchard is good in multiplayer Commander. The Filter lands are the lowest prices they have been in a long time and they can help with color fixing: Fire-Lit Thicket , Flooded Grove and Cascade Bluffs . Shivan Reef , Yavimaya Coast , Cinder Glade , Sulfur Falls , Rootbound Crag are other less expensive land upgrades. Glade and Check lands have interaction with basic lands. Crop Rotation instant can help with color fixing since for three mana you can tutor for and put onto the battlefield any two lands.

Arcane Signet , Rattleclaw Mystic and Kiora's Follower are two drops that can ramp and color fix. Follower has interaction with Bounce lands since he can untap it the turn it's played or the Bounce land can make four mana.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Temple of the False God
  • Gruul Guildgate
  • Khalni Garden
  • Rugged Highlands
  • Temple of Abandon
  • Temple of Epiphany
  • Temple of Mystery
  • Hamletback Goliath
  • Wall of Runes
  • Armory of Iroas
  • Clone
  • Glimpse of Freedom

Good luck with your deck.

OmniDreamer on Forest for the Wicked (Kamahl & Kodama EDH)

Seer's Sundial seems less optimal than Tireless Tracker . How often do you put creatures into play with power 3 or greater? I'm not sure if Elemental Bond is strong in this particular build as is.

4 mana for even 3 3/3 beast tokens is decent. Your current list already contains Arasta of the Endless Web , and I love that it can help start the loop with Ghost Town if you have the right setup. A couple other token generating spells for surprise factor are Ezuri's Predation , Fresh Meat , and Caller of the Claw .

Dawnglade Regent not necessarily a big finisher, but monarch is another nice way to get card draw and the hexproof for your creatures is nice. Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger is also nice, but a bit pricey.

The Tireless Tracker clues stick around so they're just there when you have spare mana that you don't want to go to waste which is again better than the one opportunity per landfall with Seer's Sundial and the tracker can get bigger as you sacrifice the clues. I especially like that the tokens trigger Kodama and if the land you put into play can tap for 2 mana you can sac a clue to draw a card which may draw you more land to put into play from Kodama triggers.

Quirion Ranger can help provide a clutch blocker or that one extra mana you need for some spell. I like that it helps you have more land in hand for landfall triggers off of Kodama. Since Ashaya makes your creatures into forests they can tap for mana so they all become targets for Quirion Ranger to untap.

Kamahl’s Will does seem like a decent fit for this deck as a way to go wide and removal. Territorial Scythecat seems okay similar to the running a Managorger Hydra but takes a bit to build up. Shifting Ceratops it has some versatility, but I'm not sure what you want this for in a landfall deck. Primeval Bounty is currently in your list here on tappedout. Branching Evolution not sure your strategy is putting a lot of counters on stuff, more dropping lots of tokens on the fiel. Fertilid synergizes well with Retreat to Kazandu . Garruk's Uprising again I don't think you're usually putting a lot of big creatures into play to benefit from the trigger. Court of Bounty seems better than Colossal Majesty and has an added benefit. Reclamation Sage is great, and I'm also interested in the new 2-drop Masked Vandal since it exiles stuff, and another budget tutor for these low cost utility creatures is Woodland Bellower .

Hey, with what you have so far well done on a budget. Nice Omniscience Amonkhet invocation :)

Some budget cards to help with ramp:

Elder can potentially tap to make five mana, all five colors. It can make more mana when you have different colored permanents in your control making it busted when you control Scion of the Ur-Dragon . By itself it can make two mana (green and white), that alone is good for ramp/color fixing. Jodah's effect lets you cheat the casting cost of cards especially Ur-Dragon; cast him for five instead of nine. He's is excellent with Omniscience as casting cost will be difficult with this manabase.

Kiora can be repeatable draw when Dragons ETB and she can also be ramp. You can use her for seven turns for ramp before she dies and being able to untap any permanent means you can untap a mana rock or a mana dork. Crop Rotation is helpful to get any land by sacing a basic land to then tutor and put it onto the battlefield. Sylvan Scrying can tutor for any land.


Repeatable draw when Dragons ETB, being able to cheat creatures onto the battlefield and more haste are helpful effects with Dragons.

Some budget tutors to search for Dragon(s). Creature tutors can replace some draw spells since you want to draw Dragons anyway, might as well search for the one you want.

Some budget versatile instant removal or counterspells.


The manabase can be improved on a budget; 32 lands is low. I wouldn't go below 35 and I would play as much as 38 since you don't want to miss land drops when high CMC Dragons are the cards you want to be casting.

More five color lands help with color fixing. On a budget I recommend more basic Forests and the five Battle lands since Battle lands such as Cinder Glade have interaction with basic lands. You only need to control two basic lands of any type to activate a Battle land to ETB untaped. If you control a basic Forest and a basic Mountain then Sunken Hollow will ETB untapped.

Farseek is a land ramp spell that can search for any Battle land and put it onto the battlefield. It's helpful for color fixing to be able to ramp with a dual land. The green budget Pain lands such as Yavimaya Coast are nice since they can ETB untapped turn two or three to make green to cast a ramp spell. If you're going to play lands that always ETB tapped then Tri lands such as Savage Lands give you more color fixing from three different color choices. In five colors the Tri lands give you more than the Scry lands.

In the manabase you want at least 12 sources of each color and you want more green and red sources then the rest. Tri lands help with color fixing to give you more sources of colors. Red and green are the two most important colors for Dragons. Green for early game ramp and red for Dragons. Green is for ramp that also gets the other colors that's why it should have the most basic lands to give you more chances of drawing a green source early to cast ramp.

Good luck with your deck.
