AultimusPrime i looked and indeed i definitely did. Tuvasa is a very powerful commander. Also thanks for the feedback, got me to thinking "i need to cut the high cost cards lol. I was using Archetype of Imagination as a pseudo win con, it makes all your creatures unblockable, though it's easily replaceable. Wolfwillow Haven is the enchantment version of a signet, but it also boosts tuvasa... It might only make green, but it's an extra green every single turn. I run Rites of Flourishing because it's actually never let me down, an extra land and initial draw are very decent. Gift of Paradise gone lol. Mystic Remora isnt terrible, but i definitely have enough card draw lol. I like churning through the deck with the enchantress effects, so i put as many of them as i can in the deck

Pretty simple but if someone casts a Beast Within on my random important non-angel creature, i flash in Restoration Angel and exile the targeted creature. When it confess back into play is it still being targeted by the removal, or would be be treated as a new object?

thought you might want to check out my version of Balan, Wandering Knight so you could see my thoughts on it. Mine is a physical list, so it's a little more budget than the one we were commenting on, not that i really have a budget lol. Feel free to drop a comment on suggestions, I'm always looking for new cards.

DespairFaction lol, i did say that i agreed with you, the mask is definitely in my Balan deck lol. I also think Commander's Plate is sorely missed here. I was just noting that the mask doesn't give boosts, protection, or evasion, which seem to be the 3 key requirements in this deck

January 14, 2021 6:40 p.m.

NensouHiebara I love Drannith Magistrate, he's obnoxious in all the right ways, he forces an opponent to burn removal on him or face never casting their commander. If you get swords on him he becomes much harder to kill and can actually bring a lot to the table while you set up for Balan to enter. All in all he's a very decent creature. I did want to ask what you thought of the new Voltron commander Wyleth, Soul of Steel and your thoughts on a boros Voltron equipment deck?

DespairFaction i definitely agree with the mask of memory call, but i can see both sides, it doesn't get you any closer to dealing 21 damage to each opponent. If it gave a stat boost, or if it gave protection or evasion, that would be another story.

Balan, Wandering Knight is a very decent commander, but overall i think it isn't terribly competitive. Most competitive decks are combo focused, they pull off their combo and win. Voltron and other combat type decks have to overcome each opponent to win, so it's harder by default. Don't get me wrong, my Balan deck is adaptive, interesting, and deadly. It's my most expensive deck, but tbh it can't beat my jhoira deck more than 30% of the time. A lot of good cards have came out recently that might change that though, especially with commander legends and kaldheim coming out. Commander's Plate and a few other cards are pretty amazing. There's a reason mono-white is considered the weakest color and that's mainly because it can't keep up on ramp or card draw. Honestly I've been looking pretty hard at Wyleth, Soul of Steel so i can use Embercleave and have access to some red card draw.

Tldr Balan can be competitive, but it will still struggle to keep up with combo decks.

Keqing420 the ultimate start for Mt current set up is t1 forest heritage druid t2 nykthos Dwynen's Elite tap all three for 3 green and cast Elvish Archdruid t3 can come together a few ways, but either i get Beast Whisperer down and start churning down elves, or i get 1-2 elves out and make the Mana for Primal Surge. Either way if i don't get board wiped on turn 3 I'll untap with a very decent board state that i can easily generate 50+ Mana from. And that's honestly just 1 example, there's a few other ways I can get set up by turn 4.

I just noticed the champion is way down, when i was building the deck that card was almost 20$. I'll definitely consider picking up a set and the Yavimaya Dryad to get a forest across the board.

The idea of using black is very much like your view of nykthos, if i get a swamp i can't use it turn 1 to slam down a dork and it won't benefit me until turn 3 at the earliest. Now that may also be true about nykthos, but nykthos can eventually make an absolutely absurd amount of Mana which i can dump into ezuri or joraga

January 8, 2021 4:12 p.m.

Keqing420 the entire deck is geared to make absurd amounts of Mana. Heritage Druid, Elvish Archdruid, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, combined with a lot of elves will generate all the mana the deck needs. I don't usually make 50+ mana until turn 5, but it's not unusual to get a whole mess of elves by turn 3 that i can turn into insanity mana on turn 4. The champion isn't in my list because it's an actual physical list and I don't usually spend money on it anymore. I'm not every going to add black so Shaman of the Pack is out of the picture.

MagicMarc i can get behind your suggestions. Elvish Promenade combos with Heritage Druid to tap for mana, Elvish Archdruid to let it tap for twice as much Mana, and with marwyn when i had her in the deck. I can see it's not a popular option though lol. Ezuri is a necessary evil, i don't always spend a boat load of Mana on him, but usually even one activation is enough. So Elvish Clancaller is a very deceptive creature, it's a 2 mana lord, both of its mana is devotion to green, and once i get the mana, it can tutor for the other copies of itself. Fauna Shaman is still a great card in this deck, i usually use her to tutor for Heritage Druid, Beast Whisperer, Nettle Sentinel, or Ezuri, Renegade Leader I'll discard a mana dork or a clancaller or something like that and get what I need. I tried imperious perfect, great card but it's too high costed and not enough reward

January 7, 2021 9:21 p.m.

abby315 I'm definitely going to invest in a craterhoof when i can, it's certainly the one part of my deck that is currently lacking. I'll definitely make use of your suggestions, I'm definitely on the joraga ezuri train at this point. Steel leaf is in the deck for 2 reasons: he's a decent beater overall, and he's a huge devotion boost. I will definitely cut the imperiouses, the marwyns, and I'll put real thought into cutting the visionaries. I'll also cut the prominades, but until i have a craterhoof I'm going to leave my surge count at 2 because I actively don't want to run through the entire deck with one go (i don't have haste). The surge gives me a massive presence very quickly and potentially the Mana from Heritage Druid or Elvish Archdruid to get it done with ezuri. I appreciate the advice and will begin the necessary changes

Need help making needed cuts to my elf deck. It's a mono-green blitz deck that relies on generating big Mana and drawing many cards and rolling over opponents as quickly as possible. I have crammed too many good pointy eared bois into my deck and need to cut a few. Opinions welcomed
