SynergyBuild on What is your favorite card ...

1 week ago

I remember playing Feline Ferocity, the first deck I played in EDH just as it came out, only slightly editted with a few modern cards that I owned, as I had played modern for a few years prior. When I cast Hunter's Prowess, triggered Arahbo, Roar of the World on my 4/4 Phantom Nishoba, attacking, doubling with Arahbo, getting in for 20 damage, life, and cards, it was amazing.

To date, I believe that card in that moment was what got me into EDH, ever since I have loved that card, and despite being a cEDH player currently, I always love that card and cards like it (Soul's Majesty, Return of the Wildspeaker, Rishkar's Expertise, etc.).

Are there any cards that just make you love playing EDH? I've heard Sol Ring, Zendikar Resurgent, etc. all get people in the EDH mood, what do you all like?

Pile-O-Homonculii on Big Beefy Fish Boys

Good choice of commander for a sea monsters deck. I have an Urza sea monsters deck, trying to use Urza's ability to tap artifacts for blue mana to ramp hard into those big blue beauties. It still ends up playing like an Urza artifact shenanigans deck though, because it's Urza..

So my next move is to make it an Arithmexes deck instead! The inclusion of green for its ramp should make it playable. I think that you should consider Circuitous Route, Nyxbloom Ancient, Explosive Vegetation, and Frontier Siege. This last one only produces green mana but holy god does it produce mana. Two green on EACH main phase, and those blue beauties need a lot of any color mana regardless.

Temur Sabertooth can save as many critters from board wipes as you have the mana for, as well as itself. Breaching Leviathan is nasty. Tidespout Tyrant is not a fish but is definitely a blue sea monster and does work. I love the inclusion of Tale's End. So unexpected and great for dealing with those obnoxious sac engine decks. Similar to Soul's Majesty, Return of the Wildspeaker will draw a ton of cards in a deck like this and has the added upside of being used as a finisher.

I also love the various umbras, generally, for commander decks. Eel Umbra has flash and will unexpectedly save one of your fish from removal, and Bear Umbra will do work in any green deck. Lastly, Capsize in a deck like this is great fun, and flavorful, but can produce saltiness when bought back repeatedly.

If you are interested, this is my Urza deck: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/urza-old-man-of-the-sea/?cb=1593614404

It has a strong draw package.

rangab7 on Ghalta Deck

Hi!

Ghalta is a great first time commander. So cool, good job and make sure to have fun. However, you need more ramp. Ghalta comes out usually turn 3-4 on a very cheap budget if you play him right. My first suggestion is to get elves Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Boreal Druid, Arbor Elf,Priest of Titania, Elvish Archdruid, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Steel Leaf Champion, Gigantosaurus, Gyre Sage And there's a lot more. This makes it so that ghalta can come out early. Karametra's Acolyte is also cool beans

You also want to add more high power payoffs. Greater Good, Return of the Wildspeaker, Soul's Majesty, Life's Legacy

Next add in some land ramp. Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Rampant Growth etc

Card draw is important too. Beast Whisperer, Soul of the Harvest, Elvish Visionary, Temur Sabertooth.

More cool cards are End-Raze Forerunners, Renata, Called to the Hunt, Grothama, All-Devouring, Aspect of Hydra, Ancient Animus, and Shamanic Revelation

Ghalta is super unique so have fun and add your own twist to it

October_The_First on Omnath, Locus of Mana

+1 For the underplayed Omnath. I Built him about 5 years ago and have been tweaking the build ever since.

What has worked wonders for me are cards that allow me to flash him back in before the mana empties from my pool if he gets killed. I see you run Yeva, I would consider Vedalken Orrery, Vivien, Champion of the Wilds and Winding Canyons The ability to save that mana and make it extremely hard to remove Omnath is super strong.

Another very powerful aspect to Having a giant creature in play are cards like Life's Legacy, Hunter's Prowess and Soul's Majesty

Nothing feels better than having a 30/30 Omanath -AND- Drawing 30 cards.

JRaynor on Xenagos? More like Xena-gross!

That sounds awesome. Yeah, when it comes to card draw, Momentous Fall, ,Soul's Majesty, and Rishkar's Expertise are MVPs. The Great Henge also works really well if you can afford it. the price keeps climbing on that one.

Something else I just thought of if you want awesome ramp tailored to Xenagos - Traverse the Outlands.

Cut Soul's Majesty and add Return of the Wildspeaker. It does the exact same thing at instant speed and has a second option to choose from.

Now that you mentioned draw I have a question for you:

Why not use Return of the Wildspeaker or Soul's Majesty over Frantic Search and Life's Legacy?

Dear Kronhamilton

Golos, Tireless Pilgrim is my favorite commander, and I've been brewing around him ever since he was teased. Let me just say you've chosen an excellent commander.

(I’ve written quite a lot in an attempt to make a sort of guide for you, so if you want the short version, check out the Suggestions panel)

Golos can be tricky to build around since he can do literally anything pretty well. The easiest way to make an effective Golos deck is to lean into Golos's 7 Mana Rainbow Wheel Of Death. Before getting into that though, we need to cover some EDH deckbuilding basics.

I think the most useful advice I can give someone who is just beginning to explore the deck-building territory of EDH is to structure your deck and mind your Ratios. By this I mean it is useful to categorize the cards in your deck according to the role they fulfill.

We’ll begin by looking at some core categories that you’ll want to make your deck function effectively. Then I’ll present the Ratios (how many of each category of card) you will want to make a generic Golos deck function effectively. Next, I’ll include a detailed (but not totally complete, because I’d be here all day) catalogue of cards within some of those categories. I’ll also offer up some suggestions and input about some of your specific card choices. Lastly, since I’m about to unpack a lot of information, I will include a brief list of suggestions (see the bottom) for a generically good Golos ‘Shell’ that should be able to support most Golos strategies.

Categories

  • Draw

  • Ramp

  • Removal

  • Sweepers

  • Threats

  • Support

  • Land

Draw Show

Ramp Show

Removal Show

Sweepers Show

Threats Show

The art of Ratios is all about determining what combination of cards from each category makes your deck run the most smoothly.

Please note that these Ratios will not total to 99 cards. This is because you will invariably have extra flexibility to choose how your deck behaves even after establishing functional Ratios. Also keep in mind that although these Ratios do recommend you adhere to the minimum number of cards in each category, you still can choose which cards will fill those slots. The point is not to restrict your options, but instead to create a ‘Shell’ that is reliable enough to power your Threats cards, Support cards, and other cards. Whatever you do, make sure you have at least the minimum number of Draw and Ramp cards. THE MOST IMPORTANT CARDS IN THE DECK ARE DRAW AND RAMP!!!

While I ultimately suggest Ratios resembling the Basic Golos Shell, I will lay out the Ratios for several different Shells;

  • Template: a sort of baseline beginner’s guide which is commonly promoted as a place to start.

  • Basic Golos: a modified version of the Template that suites most Golos decks.

  • Control: a version tailored for a slower game with many Sweepers.

  • Aggro: a version designed to act quickly and deploy Threats before the opponents are prepared.

  • Big Mana: a version invested heavily into Ramp with the goal of deploying many end-game Threats.

  • Mega Mana: an even more extreme version of Big Mana with extremely expensive Threats.

Please remember that any suggestions I make are because I am trying to help. Ultimately, the choices you make with your deck are up to you, and I can only provide constructive criticism based on my own experience and opinions.

Good luck :)

Ratio Fixing

The most effective change to your deck would probably be adjusting the Ratios, especially with regard to your Draw cards. Applying the most basic Template Shell, you want to have at least these three quantities nailed down for a smoother and reasonably powerful deck;

  • Lands – 36 --> You have 40 Lands (Cut 4 Lands)

  • Ramp – 10 --> You have 5 true Ramp cards (Add 5 to 8 Ramp cards)

  • Draw – 10 --> You have 3 true Draw cards (Add 7 to 10 Draw cards)

What I counted in your deck Show

Mutate

Depending on how strong your Mutate subtheme is, some of your Mutate inclusions may act as engines. However, I must state that Mutate is a VERY risky and even fragile strategy since your Mutate ‘Pile’ of creatures will all be destroyed at once if your opponent uses a Removal spell or a Sweeper. For that reason, I recommend leaning out of the Mutate theme (unless the Mutate card is just straight-up insane, as in the example of Nethroi, Apex of Death).

With that said, playing a Mutate theme is your decision and I totally respect that and if you want to stick to a Mutate theme then by all means do so. I just want to be sure you know that Mutate is a risky strategy that you cannot depend on to fulfill your Ramp and Draw slots (so you’ll just need to supplement it with other cards).

Cut or Include?

At a glance your deck seems like something you have created using just your collection – and that’s great! However, if you want to incrementally upgrade your deck, then I recommend replacing most of the cards in your deck with more powerful options over time.

Here is a list of cards you should probably keep playing: - Barrier Breach (Removal, because exiling 3 enchantments is helpful in some situations)

In my opinion, there are other, better options for all of the other nonland cards in the deck, however it is up to you to decide on how you would like to proceed so I won’t intrude.

I strongly recommend cutting the Planeswalkers though – Calix, Destiny's Hand doesn’t seem to synergize much with the deck and I feel that Lukka, Coppercoat Outcast is not very potent.

Lands

Just as a recommendation, I would suggest the following spread of Basic Lands;

  • 8 Basic Forests

  • 3 of each other Basic Land

The remainder of your lands could be either more basics (which is really, really, risky if you don’t have tons of Ramp – think like 15 Ramp cards and about 12 Basic Forests) or Color Fixing Lands (see the Catalogue for more options). It is rough to have your lands enter the battlefield tapped, but unless you want to either lean into Green or spend a lot of money on lands, you will just have to live with it (I play around 5-10 tapped lands in a normal Golos deck and it isn’t really that bad).

In this section, I will list out an example of the Basic Golos Shell complete with the necessary Ratios and some examples of good/fun cards in each category. I’ll try to keep it relatively Budget sensitive and most of these cards will be relatively random – this won’t be based on any particular theme so don’t expect it to be optimal.

As a reminder:

The Shell

Ramp – 12

Draw – 13

Removal – 7

Sweepers – 2

Threats – 12

Support – 7

Land – 36
