R00D-D00D No problem man! I think putting maybe 2 Bomb Squad in the main and the other two in the side board, they do seem kind of slow against aggro matchups, but in the long dame they will do work. I think Springleaf Drum deserves a full playset, I can't imagine drawing it and being upset lol. I'm not a tribal fan really, but I love to see different tribes other than vampires zombies elves and merfolk!!! Good luck on your deck, I really hope it comes along well.

Also have you considered Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle? Maybe just 1 or 2 can really help out!

Have you thought about Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle? Works well with Dryad since all your lands are Mountains.

ModernGamer on Golos: 99 Land Commander

b0bjohnson - I have a few ideas. The main commanders I'm looking at are Lord Windgrace and Thrasios, Triton Hero + Partner, maybe Toggo, Goblin Weaponsmith or Kamahl, Heart of Krosa.

There aren't any good commanders that tutor like Golos, so I figure the commander needs to give the deck a win-con outside of Field of the Dead or Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle. Thrasios churns through the deck and leaves room for a partner so that's what I'm focusing on the most.

I'll make a deck list public if I come up with anything good!

you could use a singleton of Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle and remain 3 colors honestly. You have Faith's Reward to bring it back if removed, and you shouldn't really be playing it unless you have to honestly. It also can clear boards instead of going straight face like Sunscorched Desert is restricted to, so it can be useful even without infinite triggers.

I'd definitely consider it as a one-off even without adding red, but it would require a few Dryad of the Ilysian Grove to make it work.

To fit it in, I'd say your best bet would be to change up your manabase a little to make room. It still looks quite tight because you need a certain amount of basics for Harrow and a certain amount of Plains for the overall theme of the deck. You might be able to cut the manabase down to like 26, and change some 4x to 3x that are underperforming/bad as multiples.

That would let you potentially replace Sunscorched Desert with Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle.

I mean if you want a land based wincon, the closest thing I can think of is The World Tree + Maskwood Nexus, but that would require adding in an artifact that doesn't do too much for you otherwise.

Alternatively, I guess you could do the overdone Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle route with some unassuming cards like Dryad of the Ilysian Grove or Prismatic Omen. Dryad of the Ilysian Grove actually ramps you, so that's probably one of the better options.

MTGesus90X true, but the best removal in multiplayer is mass removal. I've played plenty games where my board got wiped over and over again, even when I wasn't the threat. You'll want your Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, that you play for a Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle combo you're not close to assembling yet, back even if it dies to a Bane of Progress that was played to answer a Sigil of the Empty Throne that wasn't yours.

I’m not sure Dryad of the Ilysian Grove does enough for you here to warrant being in the deck. Normally when decks run him, its with the intention of comboing him off with Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle … i’m not sure he’s as useful outside of that shell.
