Transmogrifying Wand


Transmogrifying Wand enters the battlefield with three charge counters on it.

, , Remove a charge counter from Transmogrifying Wand: Destroy target creature. Its controller creates a 2/4 white Ox creature token. Activate this ability only at any time you could cast a sorcery.

In budget decks I always want a Transmogrifying Wand, removal tends to help budget decks a lot more than higher power decks because it's usually harder for a budget deck to just 'go over the top' and win via brute force. GW is really, really good at removing stuff, it's a specialty of both colours at this point.

A few things I use in my Selesnya deck, which is also interested in tokens, might fit in here. Gigantomancer is a lot of mana to get out, but all buffs stack with 7/7 base p/t. Harmonious Archon is an unbelievably good card in a deck that can go reasonably wide, it makes everyone equal, meaning anything that gets even +0/+1 is suddenly terrifying, same with First Strike. Keeper of Fables is a big dumb version of Toski, Bearer of Secrets, but Toski is very much not budget. Soltari Visionary is a weird old card that can remove an enchantment each time it gets in for damage, and most people don't run any Shadows. Hour of Reckoning might work if most people don't run many tokens in your area. Shamanic Revelation is better in decks that don't have very big creatures but tend to have lots, Return of the Wildspeaker and it's ilk are better if you have a very tall creature. Abundance is great in budget decks where you might struggle to find enough card draw, it gets you more consistent value for each draw. Felidar Retreat might be a bit pricey, but getting a free +1/+1 counter on each creature matters more in a deck with tokens. Similarly, Idol of Oblivion isn't super cheap but it's a strong effect with token generation.

If you like Myriad Landscape, Blighted Woodland also exists, ramp on a land is really sweet, even if it's not the most efficient ramp (it enters untapped). Devout Witness is repeatable removal vs artifacts and enchantments.

There is an old cycle in Selesnya that's really useful in some cases, most of them are budget but the odd one is pricier (though not very). They all work on the principle that you give an opponent back cards from their graveyard to get access to a really strong effect. I've had good results with Spurnmage Advocate, Pulsemage Advocate and Nullmage Advocate, but take a look if you've got a few minutes. They're all from the Judgement set iirc, but some got reprints. One fun thing you can do with these is target something someone else was planning to reanimate/dredge with, there are a decent number of Magic cards that people play in EDH that they want/need in their graveyard.

Hope some of this is relevant/these aren't outside your budget! Good luck and have fun!

Hey there, Cool deck idea! I would say that you need to incorporate more effects like Kardur, Doomscourge (effects that trigger when creatures die, for example) that punish your opponents for attacking anyone rather than just you. Your opponents can simply decide not to attack you until they can alpha strike you down (especially if you are going to be playing a lot of fogs). Try and come up with some creative ways to get your opponents to only attack you if your main win condition involves pumping your commander/draining them with effects like Hissing Miasma. Like, for instance, you are playing cards like Frontier Warmonger that reward your opponents for not attacking you - but you don't really want that presumably.

As far as cuts go - until you are happy with how your deck functions, you need to just cut out all the fluff (e.g. Jarad, Golgari Lichlord) and removal (Krosan Grip, etc). You can add that stuff back in later once your deck functions the way you want it to. And there are cards here that I think just don't realistically do anything for you:- Transmogrifying Wand Gruul War Chant Brash Taunter Frontier Warmonger, and several others. You could also cut some of the ramp - you don't need that much.

Ultimately I think you just need to chose whether you want your opponents to kill each others' creatures through combat so you can gain value off their carnage - or try and make them attack you somehow and then utilize fogs to protect yourself (in which case you NEED to play Isochron Scepter!). I hope this helps and that you repost it when it's finished! =)

Have you thought about throwing in a Kodama of the East Tree to cheat more stuff into play? You've got tons of card draw, so I feel like it'd do some work for you.

Not sure if you really need it, but War Tax is a very useful effect since it can scale and can be used vs anyone reliant on attacking to just turn their deck off, stuff like Najeela or Zur can generate immense value, but only if they can actually swing at someone.

I notice you don't really run much interaction, but maybe Transmogrifying Wand would fit? Hitting 3 creatures for 6 mana over 3 turns is decent value for a single card, and if you can add counters to it somehow you can keep Oxing stuff, 2/4 vanillas are really bad in Commander compared to almost any creature people choose to run.

For lands, have you thought about Karn's Bastion, or perhaps Nesting Grounds? I feel like Proliferate is good with your counter payoffs, and moving them around can be very powerful. Technically you can move a bad counter to someone else's permanent.

Cool deck, very good presentation for it too!

Just a couple random things! I feel like Myriad Landscape is a decent card in a deck at the power level I suspect you play at, as is Blighted Woodland. You might like Nissa, Who Shakes the World, she is a really good way to generate huge mana for your Commander. Karametra's Acolyte can be significant ramp, Green tends to have high devotion. I always try to find space for Transmogrifying Wand in a mono-Green deck, I'd even run it in fairly competitive decks, nobody cares about a 2/4 in Commander, 3 uses is pretty impressive.

Just a quick look, but Transmogrifying Wand is hilariously more useful vs most creatures than Rod of Ruin, less mana for a stronger effect (only repeatable 3 times though).

I agree, some ramp would be good, Green has lots of great ramp spells (Harrow is cheap and very strong) and creatures that find lands for you (stuff like Wood Elves or Farhaven Elf), either is probably worth a look. You might also consider stuff like Utopia Sprawl, some are cheaper but only make Green, these usually use minimal mana for a bonus that can be available the same turn if you enchant an untapped land. Bad if people run Strip Mines or other land hate, purely putting lands into play is arguably the safest way to ramp.

You could consider a few more lands, your Commander is both hard to cast and rewards you for having lots of mana. If you don't want to run more lands, and people don't use too many Strip Mine effects, you could take a look at Bounce Lands, stuff like Selesnya Sanctuary are slow, but they effectively count as two land drops, one of which can be untapped.

You'll probably want closer to 38 lands, so that should get you pretty close to 100 cards by itself. Past that, Introduction to Annihilation, Transmogrifying Wand, Bonder's Ornament, Introduction to Prophecy, Investigator's Journal, Mind Stone, Brittle Effigy, and Ebony Fly are all great options as well. Good luck!
