The Prismatic Bridge

Legendary Enchantment

At the beginning of your upkeep, reveal cards from the top of your library until you reveal a creature or planeswalker card. Put that card onto the battlefield and the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.

I have played around with Sneak Attack it’s a very cool card and can help but I ended up removing it for Monster Manual. I’m trying to let my dragons stick around so this is more on theme with the list. It might make it back in sometime but I’m not sure when.

Im currently not running cards like Dragonborn Looter and Scaled Nurturer as I’d rather be able to play big dragons. And they have anti synergy with cards like The Prismatic Bridge  Flip, Monster Manual and most of my etb draw triggers. In a different build I would play these cards but not in this one, they are definitely good cards tho. Im also not running any mana dorks for this reason.

I have also toyed around with Lozhan, Dragons' Legacy but her ability is sadly a cast trigger and I’m trying to cheat cards in play without casting them. Instead I ended up playing Purphoros, God of the Forge as he triggers on etb’s which has great synergy with all my token makers especially Ancient Gold Dragon as rolling a nat 20 can kill the entire table. It does less damage in some cases but it’s more consistent and it helps that its a god that can be found with The World Tree

For now I’m still playing Manaform Hellkite as the tokens she creates have haste and if my commander is out they generate extra card draw. Or she creates extra etb effects to Ping people to death with my ping bois. She is probably the next one to go tho.

As for the dragon count, I’m trying to keep it at a minimum of 30 dragons which is where I’m at right now. Which might sound a bit low but there are plenty of dragons that create dragon tokens. Right now I have Ancient Gold Dragon which creates on average 11 dragons per combat or over 20 if she has double strike. Dragon Broodmother, Lathliss, Dragon Queen, Manaform Hellkite, Miirym, Sentinel Wyrm and Utvara Hellkite. And ofcourse my reanimation stuff. I’m currently testing a few more dragons that might bumb me up to 31/32 but they have to be better than cards that are already in here which can be quite hard. But Dragonlord Atarka might be coming back soon as he has great synergy with the D20 dragons

The biggest problem is the 100 card limit as I also need to play some more protection spells. Heroic Intervention and Teferi's Protection as my playgroup is playing more board wipes. Counterspells can also be the way to go but I rather not play those as a personal preference

As you're playing on a budget, I'd recommend building the deck in 2 or 3 main colors (including green) while using specific ramp & lands like the 'vivid' cycle to hit all five colors for your commander.

You seem to be wanting to play an aura voltron deck, did I get that right? If so, I'd recommend looking at selesnya enchantress decks for a solid basis for card draw & some value enchantments. Many also got a lot cheaper since modern horizons 2! Those won't interrupt with your plan for The Prismatic Bridge and help count towards powerful enchantments like Ethereal Armor.

With your 'slower' gameplan (I don't know how your playgroup is, but this deck seems to want to play the prismatic bridge before it's able to become a threat) it might be valuable to use cards like Ghostly Prison to help protect you.

I understand you're passionate about using Evershrike as your 'actual commander', but with your current decklist The Prismatic Bridge will only do one thing, once. That seems a little tough. In addition to 'always having protection for it in hand for exile' as you mentioned, you'd also need protection from edict effects like Plaguecrafter. Because of this, I'd strongly recommend running not just one, but a few creatures that all support the aura voltron strategy as strong as evershrike does. A few suggestions for those, with reasoning:

Of these, I'd definitely recommend Sigarda and Light-paws. With a selesnya manabase, those two and Evershrike can easily be cast if they ever end up in your hand, and really support the aura voltron strategy, while still making sure you have Evershrike in at most three turns after resolving The Prismatic Bridge.

Other cards that would help you survive, give time for you to deploy your game plan and help control the board would be boardwipes. There are several that allow you to save 1 creature from it, and even if you destroy all creatures your Evershrike can be easily returned to the battlefield.

I also see you have a lot of low mana value auras. Those are nice and cost efficient, but I don't think they fit very well with a deck that has at least WUBRG mana available before it has it's first aura target on the board. I'd advise to lean into the more 'effective' cards, that either allow you to draw (Unquestioned Authority, Keen Sense, Snake Umbra) or provide significant benefits (Bear Umbra, Daybreak Coronet).

I understand that some of these suggestions may be a bit high in the budget range, but you could ask your playgroup if they're fine with you proxying a few cards.

@Grubbernaut, Self-mill isn't need if I can cast The Prismatic Bridge from command zone. If Evershrike is the only creature in the deck the bridge will always put it on the battlefield the next turn.

The decklist is in its very early stages of development. It's an Esika, God of the Tree  Flip commander deck, but I only want to cast the back-half The Prismatic Bridge to consistently play my pet-card Evershrike as my real commander. Evershrike is not legendary and my playgroup is against the idea of me building Evershrike as the commander due to it not being legendary, which is why I'm using Esika as the commander to build my Evershrike EDH deck legally.

This deck is on a budget - most cards should be under a dollar, with the occasional exception being under two dollars and bombs/must-haves being under five dollars if they're exceedingly good/synergistic with the deck's mechanics. Cards listed over $5 I already own.

Because of how The Prismatic Bridge works, to ensure Evershrike is tutored 100% of the time it has to be the only creature card in the 99 along with no planeswalkers. I think this is a fair deck building restriction as it's a trade-off to having access to all 5 colors.

I'm not used to building in 5 colors. I don't own any green staple/ramp cards and green is not really a color I want to lean too heavily into. That being said I feel like I might have gone overkill on the mana rocks. Tips on color fixing would be appreciated. I want to cast The Prismatic Bridge consistently, but I want my deck to rely on only two or three colors to cast most spells.

Because of Evershrike's ability to self-reanimate it doesn't need to use a command zone to ensure its longevity. That being said, spot-removal that exiles and graveyard hate is a death sentence for this deck and thus it's important the deck runs many efficient answers around exile effects, such as a high density of 1-mana auras for emergency reanimations and creature sac-outlets to dodge exile and creature-steal spells and abilities.

I'm not quite sure what direction I should take the deck's arsenal of removal spells. Counter magic would be best against exile spot removal whereas destruction spells work best against graveyard hate permanents.

Lastly, cards like Despondency and Launch are in the list to ensure I always have an aura in hand to reanimate Evershrike with.

I realize this was kind of a throwaway side comment, but Lavinia, Azorius Renegade doesn't prevent anything from The Prismatic Bridge. Lavinia counters spells, Bridge puts permanents onto the battlefield without casting them.

In fact, if you haven't done an article about casting vs. putting onto the battlefield, that might be a good topic.

You can use double-square brackets around a card's name to create a reference link. It's the best way to help make sure everyone understands what's going on in your question: The Prismatic Bridge, Heliod, God of the Sun (as an example)

Yes, that works. If a card has multiple types, then effects that interact with any of those types will interact with that card. Also, the ability that can make the God not a creature only works while it's on the battlefield. It's always considered a creature card when not on the battlefield.
