Lands on the battlefield and land cards in graveyards can't be the targets of spells or abilities your opponents control.

Your opponents can't play land cards from graveyards.

Tomik, Distinguished Advokist Discussion

Cyclonic Rift is easily my most hated card.

Tomik, Market Regulator

Players can't cast spells for any alternative costs.

Spells can't be kicked.


Tomik, Distinguished Advokist seems like a cool character, but I'm disappointed with his card. I'd like a legendary creature or planeswalker who got a mediocre card in their only printing (up to two cards), with a better expression of who they are.

You guys really could have settled that on somebody's profile. That's what they're for.

The Babadook

Legendary Artifact

When The Babadook enters the battlefield, choose one:

Search your library for a Chandra and a Nissa planeswalker, put those cards into your hand, then shuffle your library.

Search your library for a card named Tomik, Distinguished Advokist and a Ral planeswalker, and put those cards into your hand, then shuffle your library.

Search your library for a card named Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis, put that card into your hand, then shuffle your library.

The joke is that during pride month, the Babadook was accidentally placed under the list of gay pride movies by Netflix. The Babadook was henceforth known as a gay icon.

Anyway, make an actual horror movie character, be it the killer, the survivor, or both? (aaand now I want to see a movie where two serial killers are trapped in an abandoned building with one another.)

Hey man! Good first draft! I like some of the ideas in here. I have some constructive criticism for you, so, as brutally honest as I will be with my suggestions, keep in mind I’m just offering my best advice on how to improve this list. I tested this deck a bit and here’s some thoughts I have:

More Tutor / Draw: You’re running very little card advantage, which I noticed when I was testing this deck. There isn’t enough dig or deck manipulation going on here. Basically every time I found myself durdling. Here are some suggestions:

More spot removal: Your deck doesn’t have a lot of ways of dealing out targeted removal. Mass Land D and other sweeper spells are great and all, but you also need ways of handling individual problems as they arrive. Here are some suggestions I have:

More Persistent harassment: You’re running MLD, Tax, but you aren’t running a whole lot of effects to consistently torment the opponent. Smokestack, Pendrell Mists, Kataki, War's Wage, Manabarbs keep pressure on your opponents. Even just running more stuff to slow things down (Winter Orb, Tangle Wire, Kismet, Rule of Law, Stranglehold etc.) would be useful here.

Consider less creatures, more enchantments: Hatebears are cool, but consider the fact that they are easier to kill than their enchantment counterparts. Magus of the Moon dies much easier than Blood Moon and you want these effects to have a good return on investment. This one is more food for thought than actual criticism.

Suggestions for cuts: Hall of Heliod's Generosity (?): It’s a great card, but right now you aren’t running enough Enchantments to justify it. Most of the time it’s going to just tap for colorless. If you run more Enchantments, it’s a keeper! (I think I’m going to try and find a slot for my own deck)

Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain: This is pretty vestigial. It’s not really pulling much weight. Cut it.

Karn, Silver Golem: See above.

Remorseful Cleric: This is too squishy. Run Tormod's Crypt instead. Just as easy to recur (moreso, in fact, cause Academy Ruins sees it) and it lowers your curve.

Tomik, Distinguished Advokist: I get what you’re going with here, but you’re blowing up your lands anyway, making them untargetable is kind of moot. There’s a bunch of hatebears I’d rather run in this slot.

Burning of Xinye / Wildfire: These are weak, you can do way better for MLD in your colors. Add Sunder (Cheaper at Instant speed!).

Saltblast: This card is kind of bad. Costs waaay too much for targeted removal. Also, is completely dead against decks that run white. I’d honestly remove this and replace it with Wrath of God instead.

Karn, the Great Creator: Not doing enough. I see the combo with Mycosynth Lattice, but Hellkite Tyrant is a much better combo.

Elspeth, Sun's Nemesis: This card isn't great. If you want Elspeth, put in Elspeth, Knight-Errant or Elspeth, Sun's Champion instead. Both make tokens as a +1 ability.

Empowered Autogenerator: Too slow, too expensive. It’s not as good as it looks. Ideally, rocks should slot into the 0-3 CC range. If you desperately wanted something in the 4 slot, why not just run Thran Dynamo instead? It’s more consistent.

Firemind Vessel – See above.

Hey, since your deck is low budget consider adding more cards to take advantage of your best card? Your best card is Tymna :)

You have the right idea with wanting to add Kunoros and Kambal. Kunoros because of menace evasion, lifelink and it's a hatebear. Kambal because he can be a repeatable source of life gain. With Tymna you want more creatures who have evasion so they can more easily do combat damage.

White has many good budget flying creatures. Hatebears who fly and can also disrupt your opponents are good in multiplayer Commander: Aven Mindcensor, Kinjalli's Sunwing, Hushbringer, Tomik, Distinguished Advokist, Archon of Absolution. Flying creatures who can create flying tokens: Emeria Angel, Archon of Sun's Grace can be repeatable sources of flying creatures. You also want more repeatable sources of life gain to safely keep triggering Tymna: Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Wingmate Roc, Answered Prayers.

Cards that create flying tokens are nice to go wide which helps to attack more than one opponent. Spirit Bonds and Sacred Mesa can be repeatable source of flying tokens. Lingering Souls, Spectral Procession, Battle Screech, Midnight Haunting create flying tokens. Entreat the Angels can create a lot of 4/4 Angels. With more creatures with flying then you can play Sephara, Sky's Blade who has a powerful effect for flying creatures, has lifelink and other flying creatures reduce her casting cost.

Other budget cards ($1-$2 or less each) to consider adding:

I offer more advice including what cards to cut. Would you like more advice?

Good luck with your deck.

Tomik is a solid card in MLD and otherwise land destruction due his one sided effects. Also, he feels like a white stax card due to the nefarious sound of his flavor text.

Tomik, Supreme Lawmage

Legendary Planeswalker - Tomik

+2: Each player with more lands than the player with the fewest sacrifices a land they control.

-3: Spells your opponents cast cost more to cast; land cards on the battlefield, in graveyards, libraries can't enter the battlefield or be the target of spells or abilities you don't control; and your opponents can't cast spells from graveyards or libraries, until your next turn.

-5: Destroy all lands, then return all basic land cards from all graveyards to the battlefield tapped under their owners' control. You get an emblem with "Whenever a land you don't control leaves the battlefield, untap all lands you control."


The ideal planeswalker for death & taxes and Stax. I mean just comes out early, is oppressive, but not necessarily any good outside of that build, much like Tomik, Distinguished Advokist.

I'd like a card like Acidic Slime, but in white.

The Mysterious Wilds

Plane - Eldraine

Non-human creatures get +2/+2

Whenever a non-human creature dies, it's controllers creates a food token.

Chaos: Target creature becomes a 3/3 green elk and loses all abilities until you planeswalk away from ~.

I thought this was a nice snapshot of Eldraine.

Choose one of the following legendary creatures and turn them into a planeswalker.

-Grumgully, the Generous

-Massacre Girl

-Tomik, Distinguished Advokist

-Gadwick, the Wizened
