Tatyova, Benthic Druid occurrence in decks from the last year

Tatyova, Benthic Druid Discussion

Coward_Token on Kaldheim official spoilers

DemonDragonJ: that sounds needlessly cruel

Cosima/Omenkeel: a bit slower mono- Tatyova, Benthic Druid? That's pretty weird. No proliferating exiled cards. The boat side doesn't seem all that for EDH, so I don't think mono- Vehicle tribal decks will be a thing

Niko Defies Destiny: the -mana can AFAIK be spent casting foretell cards directly from your hand

Time Warp + Meloku the Clouded Mirror + Mystic Sanctuary = infinite turns and then you just win :) So if Time Warp isn't too expensive for you, that is something I would look to add. Mystic Sanctuary is cheap, it's just a land that returns a spell from the graveyard to the top of your library. how it works: With Meloku the Clouded Mirror on the battlefield and 5 available mana, cast the Time Warp. Put the Mystic Sanctuary into play and, with the trigger of Mystic Sanctuary's ability, put Time Warp on top of your library. Use the Mystic Sanctuary's mana to activate Meloku the Clouded Mirror's ability, returning Mystic Sanctuary to your hand and creating a token. Take the extra turn and repeat this process infinitely. you then have infinite flying 1/1 illusions that kill everyone. then you take one extra turn after you think you have enough. about 40.000 creatures should do it :) and then you kill everyone.
Another combo thats also good with landfall is Scaretiller and Retreat to Coralhelm. if you have creatures that let you put at least 2 lands into play each turn. you play Scaretiller with Retreat to Coralhelm on the field and then play your first land, tapping Scaretiller, triggering it, returning a fetchland from the graveyard to the field, this triggers Retreat to Coralhelm untapping Scaretiller, you can then fetch again and again and again, for as many lands as you want. Walking Atlas lets you put extra lands into play by tapping it. Wayward Swordtooth, Tatyova, Benthic Druid, Azuza, Lost but Seeking all do this. you just need one of them to pull this combo off and you can fetch all the lands out of your deck. If you are only running basic lands, you can make due with something like Prismatic Vista which fetches basic lands out of your deck for the cost of 1 life, which is negated by tatyova, since she gains you a life when you play a land. so you are neutral on life.
so these are all the cards I suggest you add to the deck: Mystic Sanctuary, Wayward Swordtooth, Tatyova, Benthic Druid, Time Warp, Azuza, Lost but Seeking, Walking Atlas, Scaretiller and fetches like Prismatic Vista, Terramorphic Expanse and Fabled Passage. If you have the money, all the dual lands that fetch blue and green are also good. But if you don't want to spend money on prismatic vista, the regular fetchlands like Terramorphic Expanse and Fabled Passage work too as I said, since you are also taking unlimited extra turns, the lands become untapped anyway.

none of them are expensive thanks to reprints. What you take out for all of this I'm not quite sure. But I think I would start with Jace. he doesn't look like a card that belongs here. he is good for milling. If milling is your plan, then I think this is the wrong commander. I can take a look through the list and suggest cuts if you like, but later :)

multimedia on Landfall go brrrrrrrrrr (Omnath Locus of Creation)

2 weeks ago

Hey, good casual budget version of Omnath. Nice Scroll Rack :)

You could expand on landfall with several other good landfall cards:

Omnath does everything except repeatable draw and that's an area to consider improving on. Tutors can sometimes be better than repeatable draw because with a tutor you get the card right away.

  • Fierce Empath: tutor for any 6 CMC or higher creature, he can get any one of your win condition creatures.
  • Neoform
  • Wargate: tutor for any permanent and put it onto the battlefield, can get an enchantment which is helpful.
  • Crop Rotation: sac a Forest to tutor for Command Tower or a Triome to help with color fixing.

Having recursion is helpful in multiplayer Commander because your creatures are going to die and your other cards are going be destroyed.

  • Eternal Witness: recur any card in your graveyard.
  • Seasons Past: can recur a land as the zero CMC card, good with Valakut Exploration as a way to recur cards put into your graveyard.
  • Bala Ged Recovery  Flip: recur any card in your graveyard.

Cards that only give a pump to one creature from landfall are subpar because the pump goes away at the end of the turn and you want to give more value out of landfall. Inspired's mana cost is too difficult to make with this manabase especially . The draw 5 is nice, but not for seven mana. Phylath is a budget Avenger of Zendikar, but you have Avenger therefore you don't need to also play Phylath.

Some cards to consider cutting:

  • Kazandu Mammoth
  • Brushfire Elemental
  • Skyclave Geopede
  • Skyclave Pick-Axe
  • Pacifism
  • Fire Prophecy
  • Inspired Ultimatum
  • Canyon Jerboa
  • Struggle / Survive
  • Reshape the Earth
  • Phylath, World Sculptor
  • Nissa, Genesis Mage

If interested I offer more advice in another comment. Good luck with your deck.

I didn't see landfall... that's always fun! Omnath or Omnath... or maybe Tatyova, Benthic Druid, or Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait

Awesome stuff, unwucht! I’ve never looked back after adding Purphoros, God of the Forge.

On another not, I’m probably going to add Tatyova, Benthic Druid back into the deck. I’m just not onboard with Kodama of the East Tree.

love the list :) and absolutely love the fact that you take the time to list the individual basic lands! that's some dedication to your aesthetic choices! my wife has a kumena deck as well, and she often completely decimates me. cards on her list, that could do wonders for you, I think, are: Vorel of the Hull Clade, Stonybrook Banneret, Seafloor Oracle, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, Hadana's Climb  Flip, Novijen, Heart of Progress, Ring of Evos Isle, Favor of the Overbeing, Tatyova, Benthic Druid, Give / Take, Bioshift, Sage of Fables, and Icon of Ancestry. Stay frosty mate

Quantum_Breaker on Kodama + Sakashima

Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner, Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait and Soul of the Harvest are good for card draw. Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy seems pretty broken. and Ilysian Caryatid or Bloom Tender combined with Pemmin's Aura or Freed from the Real can make infinite mana. also Basalt Monolith + Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy does infinite mana aswell.

You might want to think about running more Clone like creatures to capitalize on sakashima's legend breaking. having multiple copies of Tatyova, Benthic Druid means you should have no issue drawing your entire library and casting your highest cmc card to dump your entire library onto the field
