Inkmoth on Yeva Draw-Grow (Budget)

2 weeks ago

Jefello: Wow, that's super cool! Glad you're enjoying it, dude!! :)

That's exactly what my games are like, I am always treated as the archenemy so it adds a lot of pressure to make the correct plays at all times. Super happy you're having fun with it, and I would love to see your list, if you didn't mind, I am always searching for inspiration. Sylvan Safekeeper is phenomenal, but I removed him a long time ago due to the lack of lands in the budgetless, but seems to make sense here with more lands to sac. I might consider him or Eladamri, Lord of Leaves since ver. is more elf centric.

As for Raff, I keep starting him, but I am just so hooked on Yeva, I can't drop it for any other deck. Also stay tunes, I got some changes to budget. Probably sometime this week.

grimcase21 on Varolz Counters EDH

Hi l0ry,

Varolz is probably my favorite deck that I've built so far, but the ideal route is to go with a elf ball shell. Play all the dorks you can find because 1) they are very early mana ramp, 2) you can sac them to protect your commander, and 3) you can scavenge them when you're done with them (nice thing is the elves usually pay for themselves, float mana, sac and use it to scavenge). Don't forget Birds of Paradise

That is step # 1 for consistency mana to do crazy stuff. Step 2 is either consistent mill, or consistent tutor, or both. For the mill plan, best card to use is Mesmeric Orb . Get that turn 1 with soul ring, and you're going places. There are a lot of budget options to mill. On the other hand, with the tutors you'll be more consistent and basically turn into an one-turn-kill with either Phyrexian Dreadnought or Death's Shadow on your commander or something that has infect.

Cards to think about, as they have work wonders for me

VexenX on [[Primer v3.4]] - OM_RATH!!! (M20 Update!!!)

Guerte: FOR SURE going in the deck. I'm scared to see what the extended art is going to cost... my wallet is crying right now haha. Lotus Field is being cut (was kind of a place holder anyway).

I am currently deployed (getting back in two weeks!) and will be buying a car when I get back... so I am a bit behind when this deck is concerned. A key note is that the last update has been done in my head, but not in paper because the deck is safely back home haha. I will likely have to rock an non-foil Crop Rotation , Sylvan Safekeeper and Prismatic Vista until the finances calm down a bit haha.

Presenting my Lord Windgrace deck once again:

Lord Windgrace Hired an Orcish Lumberjack

Commander / EDH bushido_man96


I've made some good changes to it, and am looking to squeeze in a few more. I've got Sylvan Safekeeper and Zuran Orb looking for spots, or any argument that they shouldn't get spots. Looking for upvotes, too!

RNR_Gaming on Chulane - Aluren Alarm [CEDH] primer

1 month ago

Yeah, I mean it's not legal yet. Plus, I'll probably have to wait till the secound wave to get a physical copy of chulane. With 0 interaction yes it can snow ball 3-4. I do wonder if the protection in the deck can stand up to multiple sources of interaction. Spellskite and Sylvan Safekeeper have always been mvps in my commander centric builds.

RNR_Gaming on Chulane's Tale of Aluren and LabManiacs

Fun stuff. Village Bell-Ringer and perhaps Great Oak Guardian may be of some interest to you as sort of another Intruder Alarm effect. Also, protection is key when playing this commander Spellskite and Sylvan Safekeeper have been mvps for me. You can check out my brew for some more ideas :) Great Oak Guardian cmc is a bit high for my tastes but I know some people like him for redundancy.

dingusdingo on Non dredge gitrog deck.

1 month ago

This is a somewhat strange request. The interaction between Dakmor Salvage and The Gitrog Monster is extremely strong, and very cheap monetarily. You should consider running a couple dredge cards for value anyways, as hitting 2-3 extra draws off a dredge is an easy and once again cheap monetarily way to get ahead in card advantage.

To humor you though, here's what I'd probably run.

And from there, round it out with some efficient early game beaters, some spot removal, land ramp, and a bit of card draw.
