Silent Clearing Discussion

wow!! thank you for the click and comment. i do feel honored! hi really appreciate your question, but i am afraid i don't feel quite qualified to answer your question. i primarily build decks to be fun and, yes, competitive. but i have never built a truly high-class cedh deck before, and therefore would have no idea how it would fare in that environment. i do not believe, for example, that any true competitive deck would bother with Cathartic Reunion or Dark Bargain lol.

however!! if you are looking for a deck that could perform reasonably well at your local game store, then i can tell you from personal experience that yes, this deck works! quite well really. i have had many fun games piloting this deck, and hope that, if you decide you would like to try it, that you find your experience likewise.

as for Silent Clearing, yes!! that looks like what probably should be in over Castle Locthwain. i'll add it! :)

Hmmm, I would recommend a huge upgrade in your lands section. The pi chart says....

So basically, the three colors that make up your deck in mana costs are pretty much even. So I would spread out your lands evenly. To do this, I would cut a LOT of the basics and include some of the following.

Hey, nice start, lots of good cards here.

24 basic lands in the manabase is a lot. Even on a budget there's lands you could add to improve the manabase.

Some upgrades to consider:

  • Phyrexian Reclamation > Obzedat's Aid
    Reclamation can be repeatable recursion of Kaalia and other big creatures you want to cheat onto the battlefield with Kaalia.

  • Smothering Tithe > Amulet of Vigor
    Smothering is some of the best repeatable ramp in multiplayer Commander. Amulet is not doing much here with the manabase. What other permanents are ETB tapped that you want this for?

  • Arcane Signet > Staff of Nin
    Two drop mana rock is better for Kaalia than a six drop that's not a creature.

  • Master of Cruelties > Subjugator Angel
    Cheat Master onto the battlefield with Kaalia to potentially outright kill an opponent with it and Kaalia. Reclamation is good with Master since it when it dies it lets you recur it to repeat this trick with Kaalia.

  • Doom Whisperer > Thunder Dragon
    Repeatable surveil 2 can help to setup your next turn or current turn draw.

  • Nahiri, the Harbinger > Gideon, Martial Paragon
    Nahiri can be a repeatable draw source, repeatable exile removal or tutor for and cheat a big creature onto the battlefield.

  • Animate Dead > Whispersilk Cloak
    There's plenty of better protection for Kaalia here, Cloak is not needed.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, very good upgrade of the precon. You don't really need to change anything for this deck to be a winner. However this deck is not aggro, it's midrange since it has 24 cards 4 CMC or higher. That's too many if you want to play aggro Vamps. Something to consider for aggro is cutting some high CMC Vamps/cards for more low CMC Vamps/cards and replacing some lands that can ETB tapped with ones that don't.

Some changes to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

Nomad Outpost ? Clifftop Retreat Inspiring Vantage Sacred Foundry Sunbaked Canyon Caves of Koilos Concealed Courtyard Godless Shrine Isolated Chapel Silent Clearing. For this deck I'd personally recommend the land cards that let you sac for 1 and draw a card to help refill your hand on that final turn with all the cheap mana instant and Sorcery spells you have, as well the Sunbaked Canyon while it does hurt, with lifelink mitigates the self harm to a surplus with some thing as low as Shock. but ultimately price and current unused cards matter. if oyu dont like the self harm part, then go with the Clifftop Retreat making it easy to play untapped with just having a mountain.

Hey, currently your deck doesn't have an official Commander. In the deck editor after 1x Karlov of the Ghost Council text put the CMDR tag.

1x Karlov of the Ghost Council *CMDR*

Doing this shows Karlov card in the deck list and officially makes Karlov the Commander of your deck. I also suggest turning off the competitive meter. Which can be done in the deck editor by unchecking show competitive meter. The meter is not an accurate gage of how competitive your deck is. It's currently at 22% competitive which if it was accurate is not good, but it being false low is a distraction right now for your deck building. The lands in the manabase are a big reason for the low % of competitive.


I like your version of Karlov and you've decided to go the extort direction which is unique, good choice.

The first thing I do when building budget decks is allocate enough of the budget for good lands in the manabase. Sometimes this requires using more of the budget than I would like, but I figure I need good lands to actually consistently cast cards. For $25 you can make big upgrades to the manabase. Dual lands that can ETB untapped are wanted with Karlov because he's a two drop and you want to be able to consistently curve white one drop into white/black Karlov which will be difficult without more good dual lands.

Consider a few more low CMC creatures who have interaction with Karlov?


I see Exquisite Blood and if you're wanting to add an expensive price card for a combo then Walking Ballista with Heliod, Sun-Crowned is a combo with cards that are individually better. In my opinion Exquisite is not worth $32 and Ballista can have many more scenarios where it's good outside of the combo. Ballista can also be more easily recurred with Phyrexian Reclamation which is in the Mystery Booster set, that version is $1. Good source of repeatable value using life for some resiliency.

Reclamation can help to keep Karlov out of the Command Zone since you can recur him and cast him from your hand instead of the Zone. Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim + Karlov is good with Reclamation and life gain being able to recur the creature, Karlov, you sac. Karlov can exile creatures with his ability, but Ayli as long as you have 50 life can exile a nonland permanent which as a repeatable ability is powerful in multiplayer Commander.

Another expensive price combo option is Necropotence which is a combo with Bolas's Citadel. Necro can exile lands on the top of your library to allow you to keep casting cards with Citadel. Necro is a great way to use life for value and is one of the best sources of repeatable pseudo draw in Commander. It's definitely worth $17, it's good with Krrik's Phyrexian mana ability and Aetherflux. For $32 instead of Exquisite you could get Necro and dual lands or Serra Ascendant. Ascendant is a one drop 6/6 flying/lifelink creature in 40 starting life Commander.

Ruin Raider and Dark Tutelage are cards to consider adding since they're repeatable draw sources for no mana cost and give you value using life. Swords to Plowshares and Generous Gift are budget removal spell upgrades.

I haven't given any suggestions of cards to consider cutting. I can in another comment if you would like?

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, you're welcome. I'll take a look at your deck and leave a comment or two :)

If you have or can afford to get Demonic Tutor then adding it will help your deck. Demonic is in the Mystery Booster set, that version is $24 from TCGPlayer. However, if budget is a concern it's not a vital card because there's other options for tutors. $24 could be used for many other cards especially lands. Godless Shrine, Silent Clearing, Caves of Koilos, Fetid Heath, Isolated Chapel together is $25 and there's less options for good lands.

I know it's minor, but I like two-drop mana rocks over three-drops when I can get them-- Talisman of Hierarchy and Orzhov Signet and Star Compass. Bontu's Monument is kind of like ramp for your black creatures and also gives you incidental life gain/drain.

Bojuka Bog is a nice graveyard-hate piece with little downside and Tainted Field comes in untapped and will usually give you colored mana. Caves of Koilos is also nice coming in untapped and Silent Clearing gives you the option for card draw when you need it.

Working in some on-theme card draw will help you find your threats and answers. Dawn of Hope synergizes nicely with what you're doing. Icon of Ancestry is pseudo-card draw that buffs your creatures. With all the life you're gaining, Underworld Connections is a nice source of card draw that doesn't really hurt. I also like Marchesa's Decree since you're already running enchantments to discourage your opponents from attacking you and the monarch is a fun mechanic.

Anything that lets you get more activations out of your commander or protect your commander--Illusionist's Bracers, Swiftfoot Boots (to use her when she comes out), and Etchings of the Chosen.

Settle the Wreckage and Kaya's Wrath are some efficiently-costed wraths if you must wipe the board.

Triskaidekaphobia could be an interesting alternate win-condition.

Suggested cuts: Arvad is kind of expensive and has payoffs with only 4 cards in your deck (including the commander) Cast Down doesn't let you deal with your opponents' commanders. Life gain that doesn't do anything but gain life like Sanguine Sacrament and Beacon of Immortality. Impale (Murder is cheaper, Mortify is more versatile, exile effects might even be more efficient)
