Seeking Advice for Alela, Artful Provocateur Control/Token Deck

Commander Deck Help forum

Posted on March 29, 2024, 2:57 p.m. by Danutercisd

Hello again guys! This time, I made a three color deck. I decided to go with Esper, because the commanders seem pretty cool, and I wanted to do a deck capable of a lot of control and board interaction(removal and counters.) This is a control deck featuring Alela, Artful Provocateur. The plan I had in mind was that I would use Alela and create faerie tokens by casting a lot of artifacts and a few enchantments, while also using cards that buff flying creatures as well as the faeries. I'm looking for advice on how to improve the win con as well as improve synergy with the deck. I also want advice for my manabase too, because I'm not too sure if it's the best. Let me know what you think! I appreciate any feedback in advance! Keep in mind that I do not really care about budget, as I usually like playing on Tabletop sim, so literally anything is fine for me as long as it doesn't make this deck too competitive

My Deck: Alela, Artful Provocateur

It’s old, but maybe consider Shackles as a semi-recursive answer. Shackles isn’t exactly removal, but it could be a spot-handler rather than spot removal, with the benefit of moving it around to whatever becomes a bigger problem later (and getting another faerie). Most of the new stuff is measurably better, and the deck list already looks great, but I thought it would be fun to mention an old Invasion card. The blue one gives flying, so not super useful, and I didn’t see a black one, so there doesn’t appear to be much else there.

Yeah. It may be good to put recursion cards in there. I'm not too sure if I want to yet. I'll have to play test it, but I'll keep it in mind. I also got some good suggestions on my comment page too, so I'll test around and see if any of those can be a fit for sure.
