SaltySpecula on Uril

A fair chunk of this deck seems to be devoted to creatures. Uril is not a creature deck.

I would recommend stripping out most of the creatures and other 'creatures matters' cards like Collected Company and all the cards that focus on making token creatures.

Probably best to double down on Uril, protecting Uril and creating an aura/card draw engine. That means including more cards with effects like Sram, Senior Edificer. Others you may want include Satyr Enchanter Mesa Enchantress. You will also need additional tutors. Three Dreams is a good place to start. You'll want additional protection in the form of Greater Auramancy and Sigarda, Host of Herons.

Just as a note, you have only 5 ramp spells. You'll want about 10. Knotvine Mystic, Skyclave Relic, Trace of Abundance are all good includes.

Also, I don't know what kind of decks your friend plays with or what decks they use, but a lot of the auras included are... Niche use at best. I'd recommend including more indestructible and unblockable ones instead. Timely Ward, Indestructibility, Shield of the Oversoul, Inviolability, Holy Mantle, Unquestioned Authority.

Also, you may want to include more compound +1/+1 cards in the same vein as Ancestral Mask. Others like All That Glitters, Ethereal Armor and Helm of the Gods are good ones.

Final note Runes of the Deus are an auto-include. If you're comfortable with your mana ramp Eldrazi Conscription too.

Hmm, strongly considering moving Sigarda, Host of Herons to the main in place of Questing Beast. With Riveteers Charm moving to the side, and becoming a very useful target due to all the flexibility, I'm going to want more access to which makes Firespout a solid option that I can make space for.

Main:
-1 Questing Beast
+1 Sigarda, Host of Herons

Side:
-1 Sigarda, Host of Herons
-1 Anguished Unmaking
+1 Riveteers Charm
+1 Firespout

and I'll probably try to find a way to make space for more 5 color lands. Any opinions? I really do like Questing Beast but Sigarda, Host of Herons has more relevance overall. Its casting cost is a little difficult for what I wanted the slot to be for though, so I'm not completely sold on the idea. Another option would be to replace Doomskar with Firespout, but I'd like to have both if at all possible.

There's just so many good options, it's hard to squeeze in all the things I want to do...

Edit: I guess I could cut Necromentia for the Firespout instead, since that's probably my least used card.

Zobi on RaH's Bogle

Hi Rahrune, I am actually building this deck! I didn't already ordered all the cards I need but here is how I made it;

I have a bunch of hexproof creatures, like Slippery Bogle, on which I try to put as much auras as I can. I have cards like Kor Spiritdancer and Season of Growth to draw a lot of cards and refill my hand. I added 4 Path to Exile to my sideboard, just in case other players have too big creatures like Lord of Extinction.

For the auras, I am relying on these;

I understand your choice on Sigarda, Host of Herons to prevent your creatures to be sacrificed but I prefer being more aggressive. I don't know if you are really focused on auras but maybe you should try voltron strategy. If you have any tips for me I will appreciate it.

I hope this will help you Rahrune!

I like Sejiri Steppe a lot, it works as instant speed protection with Sakura-Tribe Scout and can be bounced or copied for re-usability. It is a nice thing to make Primeval Titan unblockable, but it does more than that for the deck.

I usually have either Dragonlord Dromoka or Sigarda, Host of Herons in the side, but I had The Gitrog Monster in the side as a second copy as well for a bit, but found I really wanted a white cost instead of black, since I didn't always have the access to both colors - this was when I completely cut the other 2. So I added back Dragonlord Dromoka since he does more for me overall.

I really only need 1 multi colored creature in the side, but I found having a choice of abilities was nice, so I now have 2 options, thanks to trading out the Leyline of Sanctity for Veil of Summer gaving me the space to play with the sideboard slots a bit more.

I've also found that having a lower CMC creature which impacts the gamestate in some way (The Gitrog Monster) really helps when I don't have enough mana for a Primeval Titan, so I've also liked that change.

As you're playing on a budget, I'd recommend building the deck in 2 or 3 main colors (including green) while using specific ramp & lands like the 'vivid' cycle to hit all five colors for your commander.

You seem to be wanting to play an aura voltron deck, did I get that right? If so, I'd recommend looking at selesnya enchantress decks for a solid basis for card draw & some value enchantments. Many also got a lot cheaper since modern horizons 2! Those won't interrupt with your plan for The Prismatic Bridge and help count towards powerful enchantments like Ethereal Armor.

With your 'slower' gameplan (I don't know how your playgroup is, but this deck seems to want to play the prismatic bridge before it's able to become a threat) it might be valuable to use cards like Ghostly Prison to help protect you.

I understand you're passionate about using Evershrike as your 'actual commander', but with your current decklist The Prismatic Bridge will only do one thing, once. That seems a little tough. In addition to 'always having protection for it in hand for exile' as you mentioned, you'd also need protection from edict effects like Plaguecrafter. Because of this, I'd strongly recommend running not just one, but a few creatures that all support the aura voltron strategy as strong as evershrike does. A few suggestions for those, with reasoning:

Of these, I'd definitely recommend Sigarda and Light-paws. With a selesnya manabase, those two and Evershrike can easily be cast if they ever end up in your hand, and really support the aura voltron strategy, while still making sure you have Evershrike in at most three turns after resolving The Prismatic Bridge.

Other cards that would help you survive, give time for you to deploy your game plan and help control the board would be boardwipes. There are several that allow you to save 1 creature from it, and even if you destroy all creatures your Evershrike can be easily returned to the battlefield.

I also see you have a lot of low mana value auras. Those are nice and cost efficient, but I don't think they fit very well with a deck that has at least WUBRG mana available before it has it's first aura target on the board. I'd advise to lean into the more 'effective' cards, that either allow you to draw (Unquestioned Authority, Keen Sense, Snake Umbra) or provide significant benefits (Bear Umbra, Daybreak Coronet).

I understand that some of these suggestions may be a bit high in the budget range, but you could ask your playgroup if they're fine with you proxying a few cards.

I might consider going flat out zombies for this list. mono White, mono blue Urza, green white, or bant tend to do tax lists a bit better. I get the reasoning with rooftop storm, but it isn't enough.

If you want to do zombies, U/B is great because you have 3 solid generals to choose from between Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, Gisa and Geralf, and Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver

If you want to focus on Stax, maybe look into Urza, Lord High Artificer, Derevi, Empyrial Tactician, Hokori, Dust Drinker, Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker, Yasharn, Implacable Earth, Sigarda, Host of Herons, etc. All make great Stax commanders and have easier colors to work around the orb and tax effects (Opposition, Glare of Subdual, Seedborn Muse, Urza, Lord High Artificer, etc). Black can allow for reanimation for smokestack and the like white also has the potential along with plenty of ways to generate tokens.

You can do whatever you feel like, it is certainly your list, I just wanted to maybe offer the advice that this list is trying to do too much which keeps it from doing either of its game plans effectively. I speak from experience trying to make a Naya list that could be stompy and run tokens which didn't work well.

GangstaFranksta on Heroes of the Weatherlight

I see that you are thinking of adding cards that make your creatures indestructible which is useful for combat and potential board wipe spells, but I have a few suggestions that might have a little more utility. Ajani's Presence is ok, but you have to pay 3 mana for every target after the first. And regardless this wont protect anything from exile or sacrifice. Fight as One is similar but also only targets 2 creatures. Most of the instants in your maybe board do similar things. I think it might be a better idea to protect them from everything that a board wipe could do (sacrifice, deal X damage, destroy, and exile) and simply buff the creatures so you don't have to worry about losing them in fights. Akroma's Will will protect all of your creatures from everything (except for Eldrazi with Annihilator or colorless cards). Eerie Interlude blinks all of your creatures which also would protect them from literally anything. The only downside is that it targets them independently so if they have hexproof this doesn't work. Ghostway does the exact same thing but doesnt target so works around hexproof (and is really cool).Silence is a pretty cool card that completely just shuts down someone's turn. Sigarda, Host of Herons protects from forced sacrifice. Lastly, (and most pricey) Teferi's Protection also protects from literally everything.

I also notice you don't have much in the way of removal. Again, I think we can buff your creatures so that they don't need to worry about losing fights, but sometimes there are specific pesky creatures that you need to deal with. For that I'd recommend Urza's Ruinous Blast and Mangara of Corondor. The Wanderer is also really cool, has removal, and protects you from all noncombat damage like damage from Ruric Thar, the Unbowed for example, which is awesome. Aura Shards is also great in this deck for removing non creature problems.

These are those crowd buffs I've been talking about. You've already got Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite which is great. Day of Destiny is pretty cool and works really well with the theme of the deck. Hunting Grounds is AWESOME for increasing your board presence. Seedborn Muse is good for obvious reasons. God-Eternal Rhonas is also a good 1 turn crowd buff. Windbrisk Raptor and True Conviction aren't bad either. Saryth, the Viper's Fang both makes your creatures 1 touch killers but also protect the ones you aren't swinging with. Avacyn, Angel of Hope is pricey but also incredibly strong for a deck like this.

There are a few Selesnya cards that just absolutely shut down other colors. I might recommend these if you can find room for them: Yasharn, Implacable Earth, Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker is awesome and discourages people from attacking you, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger is absolutely brutal and will shut down everyone else's board if not dealt with immediately. Lastly, Linvala, Keeper of Silence will keep a lot at bay.

Real quick, I notice the deck doesn't have much draw. Consider adding something like Beast Whisperer or more expensively Mangara, the Diplomat.

Lastly, I have a few land suggestions. First of all, why not Sol Ring and Command Tower? Sunpetal Grove and Temple of Plenty are good dual land that can help early game get you the right mana. Untaidake, the Cloud Keeper is a really cool land that isn't that useful in most decks but is great for this one; same goes for the less useful but still cool Eiganjo Castle. Emeria, The Sky Ruin is pretty useful later in the game if you have enough planes; not so good early game. Tyrite Sanctum is another unique land made just for legendary creatures. Hall of the Bandit Lord is expensive but good in almost any creature based deck. Hall of Heliod's Generosity can help you get back your enchantments; I don't think you had anything else to do that. Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth is a no brainer is basically any green/other color deck now. If you find yourself about to lose a creature just use Miren, the Moaning Well and sac it instead for some extra life. Kor Haven is a dope old school card with obvious utility. Last and far most expensive Yavimaya Hollow fits really well in this deck is incredibly useful especially for it to be a land (that's OP!) but that price tag hurts.

Hope this helped!

MaxymuzGG on Help optimizing my Wilhelt Precon

Hello, I own a Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver precon, with some upgrades like Gravecrawler , Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Plague Belcher, Bastion of Remembrance and Noxious Ghoul.

I'm prob looking to make it mostly a combo deck but I'm not sure.

I normally play with another 3 friends that play Sigarda, Host of Herons that I can't deal with except with Noxious Ghoul, a full ramp/eldrazy enourmous monsters and extra turns and the 3rd one just bought the new spirit precon that just came out.

I really struggle being competitive with the first 2 players and I think that only by going for game winning combos I can deal with them.

Looking for new ideas or cards to exchange on my deck.

Thx u all
