TheoryCrafter on The Madness of Fractal Being Manifested
2 months ago
The biggest threat to your deck is Solemnity. I'd recommend some counterspells including, but not limited to, Decisive Denial, Quandrix Command and Voidslime.
If you can't prevent Solemnity from entering the battlefield, Fecundity and Soul Net will turn your 0/0 Fractals into a boon until cards such as Fade into Antiquity and Naturalize can be used. Your commander's static ability will also feed into it.
You may also wish to consider cards that affect or are affected by +1/+1 counters. These include, but not limited to, The Ozolith, Swarm Shambler, Bramblewood Paragon, Herald of Secret Streams, Vigean Graftmage, Experiment Kraj and Plaxcaster Frogling.
Scavenging Ooze can give your deck some much needed graveyard hate.
Have you considered Simic Ascendancy with all these cards creating creatures with +1/+1 counters on them? You can move growth counters from Simic Ascendancy to Paradox Zone by means of Nesting Grounds.
Other lands to consider for the deck are Cave of Temptation, Forge of Heroes, Littjara Mirrorlake, Llanowar Reborn, Novijen, Heart of Progress, Opal Palace, Oran-Rief, the Vastwood, Temple of Mystery and Tyrite Sanctum.
Other cards to consider for your deck are Altered Ego, Bioshift, Clone Legion, Hardened Scales, Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter, Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner, MirrorBox, Repudiate / Replicate and Slippery Bogbonder.
I hope this helps. Thank you for reading me out. Happy Hunting!
multimedia on Defending budget commander deck
4 months ago
Hey, good changes so far. Looking nice with a really low avg. CMC.
Some budget defender upgrades to consider.
- Orator of Ojutai --> Hover Barrier
- Sunscape Familiar --> Gatecreeper Vine
- Wall of Roots --> Cathedral Membrane
- Shield-Wall Sentinel --> Geist of the Archives
- Wall of Stolen Identity --> Marble Titan
- Wall of Junk --> Fog Bank
- Walking Bulwark --> Consider
- Crashing Drawbridge --> Suspicious Bookcase
Orator of Ojutai is another two drop defender who can draw ETB if you control Arcades and it has flying. Sunscape Familiar and Wall of Roots are more defenders who ramp. Shield-Wall Sentinel is a defender tutor. Wall of Stolen Identity is good in multiplayer Commander and it ETB as the creature you choose with defender. Identity and Shield-Wall are some higher mana cost defenders, but their ETB abilities are worth it.
Wall of Junk has been errata to have defender, it can return itself to your hand if it blocks making it bonus good with vigilance. Walking Bulwark and Crashing Drawbridge are low mana cost defenders who can give other creatures you control haste.
- Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive --> Aegis of the Heavens
Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive makes your defenders unblockable. What makes Tower Defense good here is it gives all creatures you control the instant pump for two mana. Aegis of the Heavens only targets one creature for three mana.
Because Arcades triggers to draw when a defender ETB then blink can be a powerful effect. Blink can also enable an infinite turns combo where attacking Arcades and/or defenders are the wincon.
- Eerie Interlude --> Voidslime
- Soulherder --> Serra's Blessing
Eerie Interlude can protect all your creatures from a board wipe since your creatures return to the battlefield at the next end step. If Arcades is exiled along with defenders then when the creatures come back you draw. To price match for a possible cut, Eerie could replace Voidslime? Cutting Voidslime will also clear some budget to add some of the more price defenders I suggested above.
At your end step Soulherder can be repeatable blink of any creature you control. With Arcades blinking a defender is draw, if the blinked defender has an ETB ability it triggers again and gives the defender pseudo vigilance since it will ETB untapped. Blink can also reset Shield Sphere and Wall of Roots.
If your game plan is to attack with defenders thanks to Arcades then how about extra attacks from extra turns? Adding this combo and Eerie Interlude are some reasons to keep Mnemonic Wall.
Cast Aeons and at your end step Soulherder blinks Mnemonic returning Aeons to your hand. On your extra turn cast Aeons and repeat. If you control Arcades then you also draw at your end step, but you only get extra turns equal to the number of cards in your library.

I have replaced Voidslime with Endless Detour, as I have done in every other deck that supports those colors; I have nothing against Voidslime, as it is an excellent card, but Endless Detour is simply too awesome not to put in any deck that contains its colors.

I have replaced Voidslime with Endless Detour, since, as good as the former card is, the latter card is too good to not have in every deck that supports its colors.

I have replaced Voidslime with Endless Detour, because, as awesome as the former card is, the latter card simply has amazing versatility; I had considered replacing Recoil with Endless Detour, but that card is also very versatile, as well, so I kept it in the deck.

I have replaced Voidslime with Endless Detour, because, as awesome as the former card is, the latter card simply has amazing versatility; I had considered replacing Absorb with Endless Detour, but this deck has synergy with gaining life, so I kept that card in the deck.

I'd use Disallow instead of Voidslime so you don't have to have as much colored mana to keep it up

Have you considered any combination of Decisive Denial and Voidslime both of these counterspells offer flexibility in targets. Happy Hunting!
