OUT: Cultivator Colossus, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Fyndhorn Elves, Elves of Deep Shadow, Vampiric Tutor, Not Dead After All, Bala Ged Recovery  Flip, Demonic Tutor, Lightning Greaves, Greater Good

IN: Zopandrel, Hunger Dominus, Shakedown Heavy, Hunted Bonebrute, Tear Asunder, Nature's Claim, Culling Ritual, Nature's Lore, Arcane Signet, Unnatural Growth, Underground Mortuary

Trying to work out some kinks in this deck. I find myself without big boys to sac to the 'Rog sometimes. Also, upping the land count a little instead of using dorks that will die to Culling Ritual.

I may also come to regret pulling out the tutors, but I never know what to look for that will help me win immediately, so out they come for now.

Taking your value to low cmc in mind, what about Tear Asunder? Worst case it's an Utter End, best case it's cheaper than Anguished Unmaking without the life loss.

Cool deck idea, but needs slight adjustments! - Deathcap Cultivator isn't really working - your deck can get into the graveyard an Instant, a Sorcery and a Creature, but you don't have any way how to get other type into your graveyard, so you'll never have Delirium. Considering that you are lacking any one mana drop, play Ignoble Hierarch instead. - Tear Asunder is great, but it's obvious that your 2 and 4 mana slots are quite full, and 1 mana is rather empty. I suggest looking up ways how to lower it a little. Maybe play only 2, and some mix of Fatal Push, Tragic Slip and Cut Down. - Worldly Tutor is a card disadvantage. I understand that this is a "combo deck", but it's simply easier to play additional combo cards instead. Blood Artist and Slaughter Specialist have great interaction with tokens and cost only 2 mana. - Engulfing Slagwurm is way outside of your mana curve, and has summoning sickness. I would cut it. Your mana curve effectively ends on 4. If you really insist on playing one expensive finisher just as a Worldly Tutor target, play Massacre Wurm instead. - Benefactor's Draught is questionable. Without Vicious Battlerager, it's bad. Maybe just play 1 as a random surprise. - A second Amulet of Safekeeping is a blank draw. I suggest you go down to 2 copies, and instead play a few Trespasser's Curse. - Restless Cottage is pretty much useless as your opponents will likely have tokens for blocking. - It's always best to play a robust mana base. Why play just 10 non-basic lands? Check some modern mana bases for better fixing.

TheoryCrafter on Fungus

My recommendation is to cut The number of colors to 2. Green and Black should be the way to go. If you must have a third, then I'd recommend White or Blue so you can play either Ghave or Xavier Zap, respectively. Even then I wouldn't run more spells of white or blue.

Either way, a Fungus/Saproling deck should be creature intensive, so I wouldn't recommend adding more instants or sorceries except for Tear Asunder-- mainly as an option for dealing with Indestructible permanents.

Once that is taken care of your next step is to decide what kind of deck to build. You'll want to build around either Mycoloth, Slimefoot the Stowaway or The Mycotyrant. Fungus and Saproling creatures should have death triggers or activated abilities with more controlling aspects like Cankerbloom.

If you insist on having Spore counters then have Thelon, but only put in any combination of Utopian Mycon, Thorn Thallid, Spore Flower, Psychotrope Thallid and Deathspore Thallid. Otherwise Thelon should only exist in your deck to pump up your creatures. If you choose to go this path I'd recommend The Ozolith so you don't lose the spore counters. In which case I'd recommend adding Heroic Intervention.

As for Lands I would highly recommend Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth. Adding any combination of Evolving Wilds, Fabled Passage, and Terramorphic Expanse should only happen if you are playing Sporemound. Bojuka Bog is highly recommended.

I hope this helps. Thank you for reading me out. Happy Hunting!

This is a super fun little combo deck! But it can get shut down pretty easily. I'd suggest putting some key Commander pieces in that you're missing... and thankfully there's a TON of things that work with a land-based deck archetype like this in those colors.

First off, you need to complete your Cultivator combo with Splendid Reclamation for getting all those lands out of your own yard in a very big way (Cultivator probably becomes the biggest thing in your game at this point)!

Centaur Vinecrasher or Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar are superb alternate or additional beatsticks for Cultivator with tons of synergy with your commander that also dig themselves out of the graveyard after they get immediately removed like in my games!

Terravore is nice if you never hit Cultivator in your games (or it gets hated out).

Constant Mists basically you get eternal fog in a deck like this whenever you want if it doesn't get countered.

Entish Restoration, Dig Up, and Beseech the Queen for synergistic tutors.

Kagha, Shadow Archdruid, Elvish Reclaimer, Grisly Salvage, World Shaper, Circle of the Land Druid, Stinkweed Imp, Winding Way, Life from the Loam, Scapeshift, and Satyr Wayfinder for digging through the deck faster while also rotating lands. Life From the Loam is ESPECIALLY GOOD for its dredge ability in this deck so you can keep casting it. Scapeshift is the single most powerful cycler you could run but it's very $$$ and doesn't synergize completely with this deck (it's more for landfall decks, but it can still work with this too).

The utility lands Witch's Cottage, Mortuary Mire, Memorial to Folly can help get your creatures back out of the 'yard.

The utility lands Witch's Clinic, Rogue's Passage, Ghost Quarter, Strip Mine, Wasteland, Field of the Dead, Thespian's Stage, Restless Cottage, Boseiju, Who Endures, and Takenuma, Abandoned Mire would all help your deck's overall resilience and ability to deal with threats.

Either Abundance or Rishkar's Expertise could be a game-ending bomb for you. Rishkar's is great if your commander has enough power. You can draw a ton of your deck, likely hit a tutor you cast for free, then if your hand is flooded with lands you discard down to 7 putting all those lands in your 'yard making your commander even bigger! Abundance isn't as synergistic, but is basically a creature tutor spell for Cultivator Colossus if you decide to not run any other beaters or utility creatures.

Assassin's Trophy for instant-cast targeted removal of EVERYTHING.

Tear Asunder and Abrupt Decay are less-good Assassin's Trophy but at least Decay can't be countered.

Casualties of War for when you need to get rid of a lot of different pests that turn.

Return to Nature for instant-cast targeted removal of Enchantment/Artifact or Graveyard card.

Drown in Filth for a land-synergistic targeted removal that gets around indestructible.

Terror Tide for land-synergistic boardwipe that also gets around indestructible.

Nurgle's Conscription, Froghemoth, and Bojuka Bog for some enemy graveyard hate.

Rain of Filth for a MASSIVE spike in mana for that turn.

Worm Harvest for generating a TON of tokens off of the lands in your 'yard.

Titania, Protector of Argoth or Rampaging Baloths for much, much bigger tokens.

Gitrog, Horror of Zhava and The Gitrog Monster for super frog-land-pseudocycling synergy!

Brawn since you're putting things in your 'yard anyways you might as well give your commander and other beatsticks Trample for free! Trample has saved me so many times in games. No reason not to run it in this deck tbh.

Erinis, Gloom Stalker, Ayula's Influence, and Old Rutstein for more synergy with your commander's ability.

Life / Death for making an army out of your lands or pulling something out of your 'yard.

The planeswalkers Nissa of Shadowed Boughs and Vraska, Golgari Queen can give you alternate win-cons while also being synergistic with your commander.

If you don't need more combo stuff and just need another big beatstick alternate for the Colossus it's hard to go wrong with Yargle and Multani's power (plus the stained glass alt-art is sick!). But unfortunately it doesn't come with the cool yard recovery abilities of the other beatsticks I mentioned and doesn't have trample or evasion, but it does have more power than Emrakul!

FadingReality on Dragons, Dragons, Dragons

Deck is coming along nicely. Running out of suggestions lol. I don't think any of your creatures are bad at this point. The only thing I can say is you might consider cutting Dragonlord's Servant for a general piece of ramp or mana becuase discounting by 1 is the same thing as ramping by one, except your other non dragon cards also benefit. Other than that one card, all your creatures look great to me.

So let's talk about your removal. I understand that this isn't a control deck so you don't need to jam the deck full of it. I'm not even going to necessarily recommend adding even more, but I would suggest swapping 1-2 of them out for better options. I like every single piece of removal and interaction you are running except for Naturalize and Putrefy. Both of these cards are actually very solid and aren't bad choices at all. However, you are in 5 colors and therefore have access to the best removal there is. I will offer some suggestions below.

  • Tear Asunder: This card is already strictly better than naturalize. It exiles for the same mana cost and it can be made to target any nonland permanent. It's much more versatile. I'd swap this with naturalize and not putrefy. Also tear asunder is less than 1 dollar!!
  • Void Rend This is a little more color intensive than putrefy, but is still the same cmc overall. It is excellent against control matchups and hits all targets that putrefy can hit PLUS planeswalkers and enchantments.
  • Anguished Unmaking Exiles any nonland permanent. Also hits twice as many targets as putrefy, is the same cmc, and same color intensity. The only downside is loosing 3 life which is not a big deal in commander.

    Hello, how are Tear Asunder and Splinter working for you in The One Ring Meta ?
    I'm thinking of adding either or a mix of both to my infect sideboard.

    Thanks for the suggestions, Housegheist!

    Great observation about the synergy between Shelob, Dread Weaver and the Commander. I'm putting her on my buy list! Same with Tear Asunder.

    I'm not a fan of too many land fetches simply because they take way too much time, and this is already a defensive deck, so games are going to drag. After the update, I'm at 36 lands and 8 mana cards (9 if you count Deathsprout). I'll test it out a bit and see if another land fetch like Kodama's Reach or Rampant Growth could find a place in!

    While Shelob's Ambush is very thematic, I'm still a bit unconvinced about this card. Instant deathtouch at 1 mana is great, but the food token seems redundant. I'll see if it will work.

    Interesting suggestions about Horn of the Mark and Maskwood Nexus. I'll see if I can get these cards and test them out.
