Winged Temple of Orazca Discussion

multimedia on Atraxa Life Gain

6 days ago

Hey, interesting budget version of Atraxa.

Atraxa is your best source of life gain with her lifelink because the damage she does to a player is also Commander damage. She already has evasion (flying) meaning you're most likely going to be gaining life when she attacks. Gaining life while at the same time potentially killing your opponents. I would focus more on Atraxa and beefing her up which then in return makes cards that benefit from gaining life better. Counters are a fine way to beef up Atraxa because they also interact with her proliferate. Consider including more ways to get counters on Atraxa?

Cards within the budget to consider adding:

Counter Engines

Ancient, Escalation and Advokist are repeatable sources of counters to put on Atraxa. Even though Escalation and Advokist put counters on an opponent's creature Atraxa is still going to be bigger and more powerful. These cards and Ancient can beef up Atraxa quickly. A big reason to add Climb is Winged Temple of Orazca . It's a win condition land with Atraxa.

Draw and Tutors

Ramp

Ramp that can make any color of mana is very helpful when playing four colors with a budget manabase. Adding more of it lets you ramp into Atraxa faster.

Value from Gaining Life

Sunmare and Resplendent are repeatable sources to make big tokens when you gain life. Resplendent is very good with Lyra Dawnbringer . Well is good when you're consistently gaining life, turning that life gain into drawing cards.

Lands Upgrades

The Pain lands (Llanowar, Coast), Battle lands (Vista, Sunken, Stream) and Check lands (Woodland, Sunpetal) are upgrades for the Bounce lands. The Battle lands are good with Basic lands and Farseek to be able to search for a dual land. The Check lands are good with the Basic lands and the Battle lands. If you cast Atraxa with Opal then she ETB with a counter on her ready to proliferate.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Azorius Chancery
  • Dimir Aqueduct
  • Dromar's Cavern
  • Golgari Rot Farm
  • Orzhov Basilica
  • Selesnya Sanctuary
  • Simic Growth Chamber
  • Thespian's Stage
  • Myriad Landscape
  • Ill-Gotten Inheritance
  • Lawmage's Binding
  • Spirit Loop
  • Witching Well
  • Ageless Entity
  • Arvad the Cursed
  • Basilica Bell-Haunt
  • Bloodbond Vampire
  • Elderwood Scion
  • Vampire of the Dire Moon
  • Horizon Chimera
  • Evra, Halcyon Witness
  • Elite Guardmage
  • Deathsprout
  • Scour All Possibilities

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice start, several good cards and interactions here.

The manabase alone tells me this is a budget deck, but there's some budget upgrades to consider for the manabase. Your relying on basic lands which is fine on a budget, but if playing a lot of basic lands then consider adding lands that have interaction with basic lands?

Stream, Hollow and Vista have interaction with Farseek . Farseek being a two drop land ramp spell that can get a dual land is good when playing four colors. Other budget lands to consider adding:


Additional mana sources that use counters thus have interaction with proliferate is helpful ramp:

If going heavy on the +1/+1 counters theme then consider these cards that are within the budget here:

Cards that give you repeatable sources of counters should be priority over cards that only give you a one time source of counters. Repeatable effects especially if they don't cost any mana are very good in Commander.


More repeatable sources of proliferate can be helpful:

Other good budget cards to consider adding:

I offer more advice if you would like. Good luck with your deck.

Starsky2814 on Hateful Gruul-Aid Man, Who Rocks and Roils

imSandstorm, thanks for the suggestion! Teferi's Time Twist , could be a potential add for protection, as I’m still tinkering with the build.

I was piloting the deck, yesterday and it was blowing up, quickly! One game, I had the entire pod scoop on turn 3 because I was able to have Omnath, Locus of the Roil in play on turn 2 and by turn 3, I had 9-10 lands in play with a counter heavy Omnath and a Winged Temple of Orazca , ready to go. With that being said, I did become a huge target every game. With spot removal being a huge issue.

So to answer your question, on how I deal with protecting my boardstate, well, I just let it happen and lick my wounds and play the long game. Which the deck does have plenty enough other ways of winning, if plan A is prevented. I just rely on stupid luck and not so much on tutors.

But from what I learned in those games, I did decide that I would be adding, Heroic Intervention and also, potentially adding cards, such as: Kira, Great Glass-Spinner and Spellskite , to add a little more protection to the mix, from all the spot removal threats.

Ashonfire Thanks for checking it out! I think Vine Mare will definitely find a spot if a deck full of black removal is still very highly played, it doesn't line up well against golgari though since they can trade with it too easily and I'm expecting a lot of gruul/simic out of the gate. If orzhov or esper become big players then it definitely goes in, maybe over the Deathgorge Scavenger s. I included Negate to specifically battle wraths, which Shapers' Sanctuary doesn't help against. Curator's Ward is interesting, if Field of Ruin or Ravager Wurm become big staples then maybe some protection for Winged Temple of Orazca becomes necessary, although if have to waste resources on it and not killing our creatures then maybe the diversion is worth it! I've been doing test hands and the mana seems to be the most inconsistent part, that matters much more post sideboard since the main is almost entirely green and could leave you stuck on 2 forest with no other colors to cast Lava Coil or Negate , I'm tempted to include more dinosaurs to be able to run Thunderherd Migration and aim for a really powerful late game over the curve-out aggro this is doing. Good luck in your testing, lots to think about!

MultanisOTHERkid on The Best Defense

11 months ago

bobby2055 I actually replaced Tetsuko with Hadana's Climb! Doing so has enabled me to buff my walls so that, if Arcades is not around to weaponize them, they are better able to fend off attackers. Then, if they do prompt the Hadana Flip, they will have minimum +3/+3 buff from the Winged Temple of Orazca buff. It also better has better enabled Arcades and Shalai to cope with burn and big creatures.

Hey, consider Vine Mare? I like it with Climb because it's safe to give it counters because of hexproof. This also makes Vine safe to target it with Winged Temple of Orazca, opponent can't kill it in response to the pump. I've played Climb for a while now in Standard with Elves and I never feel safe using Orazca's pump without a Blossoming Defense in hand to protect the Elf I'm targeting. Don't need Defense with Vine. The Scarab God is a difficult card for mono green to beat; Vine helps to get damage through because Scarab or his black eternalized creatures can't block it. Consider 4x Vine cutting 3x Giganto and 1x Way?

Both great suggestions, thanks Skulloelegy, and SenseiRamen. Winged Temple of Orazca seems really good at closing games. I'll test it out and see how it goes. Torpor Orb combos amazingly with Arixmethes, but it hoses Palinchron etc. I'll think about which strategy I like best, but for now I'll wait on adding it.

Great job! I really appreciate that when building commander decks.

I found that Winged Temple of Orazca is missing in Ixalan-Flip Lands.
