KBK7101 on Fynn, the Fangbearer

2 weeks ago

Vorinclex is definitely a great addition. Rhonas as well (I LOVE Amonkhet). I'd definitely recommend anything that adds a Lure effect. Lure , Noble Quarry , Taunting Elf , Shinen of Life's Roar and Alluring Scent are a few of that type of effect in mono green. Fill the board with all the deathtouchers and drop one of these lure effects and that's basically game. You might also want to think about adding more protection for Fynn himself. Ranger's Guile , Blossoming Defense , Heroic Intervention etc. If he attracts as much attention in Commander as he does in my historic deck on Arena, he's gonna need all the protection he can get.

This looks like a lot of fun!

Some creatures that I had a some success with in my old super-budget smash decks were Stampeding Elk Herd and Walker of the Grove. They might be fun here too!

For removal, I really like Wickerbough Elder and Mold Shambler; they can help thin the field and also provide a body that can swing in for damage later. I also like Mwonvuli Acid-Moss too as it ramps while also potentially taking out a myriad of really powerful lands that are really common in EDH. Though, Acid-Moss might be really hard to find and/or be much more expensive in your area :(

Explorer's Scope and Snake Umbra are can also be deceptively useful in any deck where attacking is it's main strategy.

In one of my other decks, I also had Taunting Elf, Shinen of Life's Roar, and Glaring Spotlight as budget ways to give your whole board mass-reach and close out games. They might be worth considering here as well?

This card is a little over $1 but if you ever have a little more to spend on a single card, Ulvenwald Tracker could be really nice here, especially with all your haste enablers!

Also feel free to dismiss all these recommendations! Your deck honestly looks really great and fun just as it is! :D

VeggiesaurusRex Some interesting changes in the update. How is that working out?

I recently pulled Cryptolith Rite in favor of Taunting Elf, which ends up being another wincon when my field is wide.

hello. love this deck (even the goblins too). what about Taunting Elf? in combo with Timberwatch Elf and Ulamog's Crusher you don't need trample.

Frewsax on High Risk, Higher Reward

1 year ago

So I have few suggestions while staying on your budget theme and the high risk idea.

The most expensive of my three recommendations is a $20 card called Concordant Crossroads. This card is exactly that, high risk high rewards as all of your creatures start doing things right away and will potentially throw that hasty Ghalta boy into the fray much sooner.

If you find things problematic in the form of your creatures always being killed running something like Fecundity might be fun! It gives you another risky form of card draw as it potentially gives your opponents that option too.

I think one of my favorite green cards sitting at $2 dollars might be just right for you! Recycle offers lots of benefits at the cost of going down to two cards every turn. Every card you play, including lands, draws you a card. Suddenly cards like Elvish Piper with a Seedborn Muse quite fun.

I would not cut the Taunting Elf like you previously mentioned. With the amount of damage you commander does that would be crazy!

Since you mentioned your meta is "swarming" with flyers, why don't you try replacing a single flying removal or wipe with Sandwurm Convergence? This will take care of the problem a little longer unless you experience you are with a play group that has a lot of targeted removal and board wipes for enchantments. Another one is Katabatic Winds. Just a couple ideas for more funny flying hate that can be more permanent.

Maybe if you like to swing a lot, Constant Mists is always a good one to throw into the mix. Also your mention of Wood Elves would be a far better replacement in the deck for Sylvan Awakening. I know those two are not comparable, you might consider changing those two.

PhyrexianWombat on Marisi what I did there

Ooh, I love the look of Benefactor's Draught! Fittingly enough, it synergizes very well with your very first suggestion, Taunting Elf. Guess maybe we've come full circle!

Always happy to hear from you and Toxicwolf! It's nice chatting with people and hearing your suggestions!

On another note, I've taken on a big mtg-related art project lately, and I'd love to share it with the two of you once I get it farther along! That's okay, yeah?
