Latest Decks as Commander

Thornweald Archer Discussion

Decent deck. You might think about getting that average cmc below 2.5 but besides that I like it

So don't take my recommendations as me disliking your deck, but I'd suggest adding Eidolon of Blossoms,Enchantress's Presence, Fertile Ground, Sigil of the Empty Throne, Wild Growth, Overgrowth, Tuvasa the Sunlit, Setessan Champion, Bear Umbra, Winds of Wrath, Arcane Signet, Thought Vessel. But consider which of the higher cmc ones you y like because average cmc is important

Suggested cuts would be: Charisma, Thornweald Archer, Rofellos's Gift, Grimoire of the Dead, Traverse the Ulvenwald, Predator Ooze, Revoke Existence, Rayne, Academy Chancellor, Lux Cannon, Stonecoil Serpent, Behemoth Sledge, Necropede, Wall of Denial, Spawning Grounds (as cool as it is, it's likely going to get the land it's on blown up), and think about taking out some of your etb tapped lands. Again these are suggestions and in no way am I saying these cards aren't good.

Anyways, hope it helps and I do like the deck, estrid proliferate is a good place for this commander

Thornweald Archer - Reach, Deathtouch He will hold many opponents at bay for quite a while until I can build a boardstate.

And not a creature, but Devout Invocation. I LOVE it in the Selesnya builds I favor. Suddenly your army of 0/1 plants or 1/1 saprolings or whatever are now protected by an army of Angels.

I made that suggestion based on your commander. Your commander doesn't really fit the concept of lifegain with +1/+1 counters. Choose a theme and stick with it. +1/+1 counter centered decks would much more synergize with Atraxa, Praetors' Voice or Reyhan, Last of the Abzan + Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker.

EDHREC is a great website to find some cards that might fit your deck. You can either search for card suggestions by theme, by commander, or a combination of both.

Sorry, Hyperlinks don't seem to work here:


+1/+1 counter theme based suggestions https://edhrec.com/themes/p1-p1-counters


Lifegain theme based suggestions https://edhrec.com/themes/lifegain


suggestions based on your commander https://edhrec.com/commanders/doran-the-siege-tower


There is also a useful site called mtgassist, that helps you find cards that are similar to another card. For example, if you think that a card like Solidarity of Heroes really fits the theme of your deck, you can enter that card there and you will get a bunch of other cards that have a similar effect.


https://www.mtgassist.com/cards/Journey-into-Nyx/Solidarity-of-Heroes/


When I take a look at your deck, I see some cards that have no synergy with your deck at all. Like Canyon Jerboa. It neither synergizes with +1/+1 counters or lifegain, why is it in your deck? Same for Shadow Stinger or card Sea Gate Banneret. Every card that is in your deck should match the concept of it, else cut it out.

Also, a lot of the cards in your deck are straight out BAD, as in, there are cards that do the same thing, that are strictly better. It seems to me like you are trying to build a budget deck, but even then, I believe you would find MUCH better options than Turntimber Ascetic, Tajuru Snarecaster or Guul Draz Mucklord

For example Thornweald Archer, Abzan Falconer or Juniper Order Ranger

I would advise you to completely rebuild your deck, first pick a commander that matches the theme you want to go with, then use the websites I mentioned above to find some decent cards that go with it.

If you are on a budget you can also choose "Budget" on EHDREC for the most popular cards of a certain theme or commander with a more reasonable price.

nlaz123 Thanks for the comment! I appreciate the feedback. Locust Swarm's main purpose is to be a blocker that can regenerate against any big flyers trying to take me down. The deck doesn't have much against flyers outside of maybe Hurricane and Thornweald Archer. Some matchups they've been duds but others they've saved my life.

For cuts, i'd think about removing reach creatures as that ability is worthless once you have flying already.

So:

Then I'd cut down creatures that aren't that great in their own and are just in her for redundancy like

You might also want to as m switch stronghold assassin to Attrition and run Viscera Seer as a reliable and continual sac engine.

Also, if you're feeling spicy, you can run Killing Wave . You can use it offensively to drain opponents, it just as a "sac any number of you creatures" for a single {B}, since you can cast it for X=0 and still choose to not pay for each of your creatures.

Chansamu:

Glad you love the deck, man! :D As for your flying problem, I can't say that I have one. My meta usually consists of fast combo decks that aim to win around turn 5-6 or heavy control and stax decks. The deck currently has the best possible suite for general creature control without compromising the combo and as an added side bonus Great Oak Guardian can also help if absolutely needed.

Furthermore, there are other precautions you can take, like the Thornweald Archer . You can also use Kraul Harpooner and Emerald Charm . Personally, I don't like the other guys cause they do nothing for the combo at hand.

As for the Hexproof, you have access to Lignify and Song of the Dryads which can be brought out via Genesis Hydra . However, this is only relevant when you're trying to wipe the field with a pesky Hexproof creature and you're trying to end with Shaman of Forgotten Ways .

If damage is that much of an issue you can still make some concessions for something like Spore Frog or Timbermare for killing blows or set up a Turbofrog with Eternal Witness / Skullwinder .

However, if your pod makes you the archenemy because you're playing Yeva Draw-Grow, you might not be in the right arena. This is a deck that should be matched with similarly strong decks that don't rely on damage/voltron-like strategies that can pummel this deck in archenemy-like situations. Though, I promise you this deck will still manage to pull through those situations if played correctly and patiently as is.

I hope this helps!

Hey Inkmoth,

Love your deck. It has inspired me to build a Yeva deck of my own. My meta tends to have a reasonable amount of pesky flyers. Most of which hit hard with dragons or Voltron commanders like Sigarda, Host of Herons , Bruna, Light of Alabaster , etc. The powerful levels of these decks are around the 6-8/10 on the power level.

Have you had issues running into flying/evasive creatures? I've been mulling about putting in: Thornweald Archer , [Silklash Spider], and/or [Arashi, the Sky Asunder]. What are your thoughts on evasive aggro decks?
