Cool deck, I like a good Voltron and appreciate the budget effort.

Here are some suggestions, some from your Maybe and some new. I hope they work with the cost limitations:

OUT : Decimate (needs 4 targets to be cast), Trapped in the Tower (too restrictive), Heliod's Pilgrim (single trigger), Faith's Reward (Situational) and Indestructibility (too high cmc for effect), Hunter's Insight (Single use)

IN : Prison Term, Ancestral Mask, Setessan Champion, Frontier Siege, Shielded by Faith, Rhythm of the Wild

Cheers,

Anyone got an idea where Siona, Captain of the Pyleas is going to end up? The Shielded by Faith combo is certainly strong and white has plenty of tutors for it.

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, new Shadowspear is very good with Karlov. Lifelink so he can grow himself and trample to help to break through opponents ground defenses. Shielded by Faith can protect Karlov. Open the Armory is worth adding to tutor for one of these cards.

Sun Droplet is good with Karlov in multiplayer Commander since you can remove a counter from it during each opponents turn and your own. With more opponents more damage can be done to you. Caves of Koilos, Talisman of Hierarchy, Pestilence are cards that do damage to yourself which puts counters on Droplet.

Pestilence can be some major tech with Karlov since you control how much black mana thus damage you do with it. Life gain offsets the damage you do to yourself, it can kill your own creatures/opponents creature for the aristocrat strategy and Karlov can get huge which can keep him alive through the damage as well as keep a creature on the battlefield.

Ranger of Eos has many two creatures to tutor for especially Soul Warden/Soul's Attendant, important cards to have on the battlefield with Karlov. Heliod's Intervention is a powerful instant effect for white in Commander. Well of Lost Dreams repeatable draw when you gain life. Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip is a repeatable way to draw using life. These enchantments are nice have when you're gaining so much life.

Good luck with your deck.

Wait for the board to fill then play Vicious Shadows and then play Blasphemous Act. I love that combo.

Wait for the board to fill then play Phyrexian Scriptures. Next turn play Thrilling Encore.

I love commanders that give you free range to build a deck to however you decide to create it. A good example of this is Queen Marchesa. I built a Queen Marchesa deck with a bunch of deathtouch creatures other dangerous creatures like Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker Ophiomancer and High Priest of Penance. To create a unique pillowfort. Why this kind of pillowfort you ask? Because it's also a planswalker deck with 12 walkers. But that's not all. I also have a plethora of card combos like Protector of the Crown and Shielded by Faith and all the above board wipe combos. And the board wipe combos act like win conditions too.

This is why Queen Marchesa is good. But she gives the monarch. Thats what makes her great. And she has deathtouch and when you dont have the monarch you get deathtouch Assassins that die to Skullclamp or act as good blockers for planswalkers. Creatures with deathtouch work great with Thornbite Staff, Viridian Longbow and Chandra's Ignition. Giving you simple control.


With all that being said. Are their other commanders that you have built around? That has a deck design that seems to be unique? An example of this would be rashmi, eternitites crafter. Rashmi creates no direction to build a deck. A bad example would be Lathliss, Dragon Queen. Clearly you need a dragon tribal. So Lathliss, Dragon Queen gives you a direction to build.


So everyone please share your thoughts and explain what commanders you believe are good for this and share what you did to make it unique.
