Tectonic Reformation is great in aggressive red decks

Phostration on Just Follow the Trail... wait wrong cycling

2 weeks ago

I originally had the two lands you mentioned, but since the addition of Fluctuator and Tectonic Reformation, I switched for the others. The idea is that if I have flucuator out, I can cycle for free, but if need be I would have tectonic for 1 mana cycle on any of my lands.

I like Djeru's Renunciation looks really good! I'd like to pit it in sideboard and switch it in against quick creature decks.

I was on the edge with Astral Drift. I know I can cycle to flicker a blocker and fizzle out the attack. Hmmm I'll have to think more on it.

Thanks so much for the suggestions!

Ah yes, Lord Windgrace. Mine is my oldest deck (it was an Adun Oakenshield landfall deck prior to the release of our Cat Lord). One of my favorite win-cons in my list is pairing Titania, Protector of Argoth with Need for Speed or Zuran Orb + Anger.

Also, Tectonic Reformation and Wrenn and Six (if you can afford him) are solid additions.

Feel free to take a look at my list for other ideas if you want: This deck has HUGE tracks of land.

Land Tax is an auto-include if you never want to miss a land drop ever again. It also makes playing a turn 3 Blood Moon easy to work with. Makes surviving and using mass land wipes fun too. Goes great with Ghost Town if you never want to miss those triggers.

But Land Tax reaches Skullclamp levels of broken if you pair it with Scroll Rack, Tectonic Reformation, Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion, Necrogen Mists, Stronghold Rats, Raven's Crime or Seasoned Pyromancer with all the excess lands you can throw away. It even makes Sensei's Divining Top godly if you can shuffle your deck with Land Tax every turn before your draw step. (Even if there’s no more basic lands in the deck, that free shuffle can be great with SD-Top and Scroll Rack.) Without that extra oomph Land Tax doesn’t really bring much to the table late game, but it can feel like a Sol Ring in the early game if your deck runs a below average number of lands.

I totally didn't think about Zirda, the Dawnwaker, and I was worried cards like Vile Manifestation and Tectonic Reformation would slow down the cycling speed. But, I appreciate you commenting those ideas because now I've changed my mind. There have been times where I'm stuck with land and Vile Manifestation can definitely get huge.

@Komamura I like your style. Thank you for the insight!

Benthic Biomancer is kinda silly. My friend told me about it since he too was looking to build Shabraz and Brallin, Skyshark Rider  Flip. Usually involving Glint-Horn Buccaneer, you give it lifelink with Heliod, Sun-Crowned, discard to deal 1 damage, gain 1 life, put the +1/+1 counter on the Biomancer, draw and discard, deal 1 damage, gain 1 life, draw/discard, repeat until gg

Tireless Tribe is also odd. I added it because PlaytoWin on YouTube said so, but I now realize the tribe + Brallin + Curiosity is gg

Kozilek & Ulamog are mostly meant to be discarded to reshuffle haha but maybe I'll ramp to hard cast ?

Key to the City will likely come out of the deck. Undecided atm.

Cavalier of Flame, Dream Trawler and Heliod, Sun-Crowned were all booster pack pulls. I'm stoked to have them.

Whirlwind of Thought is a whirlwind slam dunk, just gotta wait until the new set arrives. I'll have to print out Brallin&Shabraz proxies if I want to use the deck currently

Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur is super cruel lmao I'll think about it


@Thornspire my pleasure, and I very much appreciate the kind words!

I have a few friends that bring the heat, so I need to keep em on their toes with spot removal, boardwipes, and I should probably run more counterspells in my blue decks. They are a necessary evil

Cephalid Coliseum WOW I'm going online and ordering it right now

The Ozolith is interesting. Once I get some games in, if I feel like my commanders are being removed constantly I'll probably invest in one

Very torn on Sigil of Sleep. Been seeing it in a lot of lists and I know I have a playset somewhere. Two friends with graveyard theme decks run a lot of ETB creatures I'm scared of (Plaguecrafter etc), but it can be a continued control piece for one mana on Brallin

Land Tax is a great idea! It makes Tectonic Reformation 100x better. I'll pick one up if I find a good deal. I like where your head is at


Thanks again y'all! You both have fun builds and it's neat to see differences & similarities in the three.

I can't want to actually play the deck!

Hey, Tectonic Reformation which is included in the precon gives you a repeatable source of low mana cost cycling using lands. This is wanted to repeatedly trigger Gavi, Slide, Drift and Haven. Idyllic Tutor is worth including because it can tutor for one of Reformation, Slide, Drift or Haven and you can recur it with Archaeomancer to tutor again.

There's a lack of ramp here and ramp is a fundamental part of all Commander decks. You want to make room in your deck for ramp since ramp also is color fixing. In the precon are Sol Ring/Arcane Signet these are good rocks for ramp, add them to your deck. There's also three Signets in the precon I suggest adding those rocks too.

Chromatic Lantern is not included in the precon, but it's a good mana rock with Reformation because then you can tap any land to make red mana to cycle a land with Reformation. Raugrin Crystal is the new Jeskai mana rock that has cycling.

Smothering Tithe is a fantastic card for repeatable ramp in multiplayer Commander since your opponents, much more than not, are not going to pay the two mana to deny you a treasure when they draw therefore each time around the table you're going to make treasures and these treasures can be saced to make any color of mana. Smothering is also good with Reformation because treasures can make red mana.

Some good budget cards with cycling to consider adding:

I offer more advice including what cards to consider cutting. Good luck with your deck.

Land destruction is a lil evil haha but the deck looks fun +1 from me!

I forgot that Tectonic Reformation existed. How do you like it? With so many large spells I feel like land drops are essential, but it's great if you get land flooded and need gas.

With a lot of large creatures in your deck, I'd suggest Pyrohemia to wipe away blockers and mana dorks to let your beaters thru

Chandra, Torch of Defiance is a favorite of mine. She ramps, burns, provides card advantage, and a potential wincon

Conduit of Ruin is a hilarious way to stack ulamog or kozilek onto the topdeck just before an etali attack phase

I hope you'll take a minute to check out my etali deck and tell me what you think! Have fun!
