I mean if you're offering I'm willing to listen lol. This deck is one I've been working on for a long while so I'm always open to advice. Also turns out I had a copy of crystalline sliver lying around, got lucky on that.

Said on Aesi...

#1

Hey, well done on a budget upgrading a precon for a first Commander deck.

There's some cards in the precon to consider adding:

  • Meloku the Clouded Mirror : one of the better budget cards with Aesi because it can bounce lands you control. It can be a repeatable source of flying tokens, landfall triggers or best of all draw with Aesi.

  • Spitting Image : can copy any creature on the battlefield including an opponents creature. Retrace is the reason to include this because by discarding a land you can cast it again from your graveyard and keep doing this as long as you have a land in your hand to discard.


With Murkfiend Liege and Retreat to Coralhelm you can take advantage of Llanowar Scout and Zimone, Quandrix Prodigy who can tap to put a land onto the battlefield. This interaction if you have lands in your hand lets you trigger Aesi on your opponents turns. Can also abuse this interaction with Simic Growth Chamber or Guildless Commons because these lands can bounce themselves back to your hand. Either one lets you trigger Aesi and draw a card on each opponents turn.

Some other cards $1 or less each to consider adding:

If interested I offer more advice including cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

Hey, good start on a budget, nice Vampiric Tutor :)

Four budget staples to consider adding:

These four cards could replace Forsaken Sanctuary , Stone Quarry , Armillary Sphere , Shatter Assumptions .

Hey, well done on a budget for your first Commander deck. I'm having fun with Veyran with Kalamax, the Stormsire .

You have 111 cards which is too many. Cards to consider cutting to get to 100 cards:


Some budget cards to consider adding:

Buyback is the reason that Reiterate can be a infinite combo with Geyser. After copying Geyser with Reiterate you resolve the copy of Geyser first and then resolve the original Reiterate which puts it back into your hand. While the original Geyser is still on the stack cast Reiterate again to copy the original Geyser and repeat. Can make infinite storm count for Grapeshot , infinite cast of instant for Guttersnipe / Ral, Storm Conduit or infinite mana for Jaya's Immolating Inferno as win conditions.

If interested I offer more advice including cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

April 12, 2021 8:25 p.m. Edited.

Hey, have you checked out cards from Strixhaven and Commander 2021 yet? The sets are pretty amazing for Kalamax because of new mechanic magecraft.

Reiterate was just reprinted in Time Spiral Remastered. It's down to less than $2 at TCGPlayer. It's another Fork that can infinite combo with Kalamax as well as infinite mana with Turnabout .

Hey, Staff of Domination is an infinite mana combo with one of Archdruid, Priest, Marwyn, Channeler when it can make at least five mana. Use infinite mana with Staff to draw/cast/have 10 Elves then use infinite mana with Staff to untap Lathril + 10 Elves infinite times as the win condition. Staff could replace Harvest Season .

Diabolic Intent is another Demonic Tutor. Intent could replace Reclaim . Miara, Thorn of the Glade is in the precon and she triggers when Elf tokens die. Miara could replace Wellwisher .

Good luck with your deck.

Said on Galazeth Storm...

#7

Hey, I'm finding the mana acceleration to be very good.

Nice budget version you've made, but Manamorphose can't be played with only Izzet colors since it's color identity has green with hybrid mana. Could cut Manamorphose for Howling Mine since it's repeatable draw and with Galazeth you can tap it for mana before your opponent's turn.

I recently added Toggo, Goblin Weaponsmith for his landfall repeatable create an artifact. Rocks are normally terrible, but with Galazeth they're free artifacts to make mana the turn their created. Saheeli, Sublime Artificer creates artifacts, Servos, whenever you cast any noncreature. Toggo could replace Silver Myr and Shaeeli could replace Iron Myr .

Good luck with your deck.

#8

Hey, you're welcome.

My next advice is consider improving the manabase? More dual lands in place of some basic lands, Bloodfell Caves and Immersturm Skullcairn to help color fixing. 27 basic lands is a lot for a three color deck since you risk drawing all of one or two types of basic lands. On a budget there's several lands to consider adding:

Lands that will always ETB untapped are better, but there aren't a lot of budget options. The next tiers of prices for some lands for future upgrades ($4 lowest to $10 highest):

April 6, 2021 10:43 p.m.

Hey, good start on a low budget. The deck name gave me a laugh :)

Some cards $1-$2 or less each to consider adding:

Having ways to tap Dwarves without attacking especially Magada is helpful to create treasures. Springleaf Drum , Survivors' Encampment , Holdout Settlement are ways to tap Magada to make mana. Dwarven Warriors and Dwarven Nomad can make Magada unblockable as long as she has only 2 power. Key to the City can make any creature unblockable such as Fearless Liberator .

Aethersphere Harvester is a Vehicle and Vehicles have an ability called crew which lets you tap any number of creatures you control with power equal to or more than the crew number. You can crew any number of times even if the Vehicle is already a creature with as many creatures as you want. Aethersphere with crew 1 means any creature can crew; each Dwarf you control can create a treasure.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, thanks for the upvote. Culmination of Studies is a nice suggestion; not sure what to cut, but I'll give it a playtest.

Said on Breya....Help Me!...

#11

Hey, well done so far.

Your deck doesn't have a Commander yet. In the editor where you see Breya, Etherium Shaper text add the Commander tag CMDR to the end.

Breya, Etherium Shaper *CMDR*

This will show Breya as the Commander and show a card image of Breya under the Commander category.


What is your budget for upgrades? Since I don't know I will give you some low budget options.

Dramatic Reversal is paired with Isochron Scepter and mana rocks to make infinite mana. Infinite mana can be used with Breya as a win condition since she can sac herself for mode to do 3 damage to a player. When she dies she goes to the Command Zone and because you have infinite mana you keep casting her from there. Repeat the combo by sacing her and one of her Thopters. If not playing Reversal than Scepter doesn't do enough in your deck with only four other instants.

Grand Architect with Breya since she and the Thopters she creates are blue. Architect is ramp for artifacts or artifact activated abilities and it can tap itself even the turn you play it. Architect combos with Pili-Pala for infinite colored mana and Breya can be the win condition with infinite mana by sacing herself for her 3 damage to a player mode.

Goblin Engineer because many of the combo artifacts are 3 CMC or less. Engineer has interaction with Eldrazi Displacer for more tutoring. More repeatable artifact reanimation is helpful and getting an artifact of your choice in your graveyard is good with many cards here: Daretti, Scrap Savant , Goblin Welder , Sharuum the Hegemon , Trash for Treasure , Emry, Lurker of the Loch , etc.

Whirlwind of Thought repeatable draw by casting artifacts as well as instants/sorceries/enchantments/Planeswalkers.


Some changes to consider:

If interested I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

Said on WTH KAALIA!!!!...

#14

Hey, well done on a budget. Nice Aurelia, the Warleader :)

Phyrexian Reclamation can be a repeatable source of recursion for Kaalia or any other creature, even at instant speed. Let Kaalia die, put her into your graveyard not the Command Zone; recur her to your hand which bypasses Commander tax. Dragon Tempest is a source of haste for Kaalia and any flying creature you cast or reanimate. It has the bonus of being able to do damage if the creature is a Dragon.

Dragon Mage pairs well with Emeria Shepherd . Mage discards the permanents that you then reanimate with Shepherd and Mage refills your hand to keep doing it. Nahiri, the Harbinger can be reanimated by Shepherd and her -8 in two turns can tutor for any creature or artifact including Shepherd. -8 Nahiri, tutor for Shepherd, play a Plains and reanimate Nahiri. Nahiri has other uses besides her -8 she can be repeatable discard/draw for reanimation or even repeatable removal that exiles.

Rakdos, Lord of Riots is a Demon who can reduce the casting cost of all other Angels/Demons/Dragons. If he or other creatures are attacking and doing combat damage to opponents then he's ramp to cast high CMC creatures which helps if Kaalia is disrupted. Arcane Signet is a staple mana rock in Commander. Orzhov Signet and Rakdos Signet is more two drop ramp.


Some changes to consider, with suggestions of cuts close to or equal in price:

My advice is cut the majority of the equipment theme for more ramp since ramp is going to help more to cast Kaalia and high CMC creatures. Phage the Untouchable and Sigarda's Aid are two expensive price cards for your budget that aren't doing much in your deck. You can't cheat Phage onto the battlefield with Kaalia or reanimation which makes it pretty useless. Aid is a good card, but not taking enough advantage of equipment and I don't think you need to since the most important equipment you want to play Greaves/Boots are low mana cost to cast and equip.

If interested I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

Hey, well done on a $50 budget. You have good card sense if you're new on such a low budget.

I will try to match my suggestions with cards to consider cutting that are close to or equal in price. Some changes to consider:

Swords to Plowshares is the most expensive card here and you have many other removal spells to make up for not having it. Sol Ring is a staple mana rock in Commander and it's more ramp that can help to cast high CMC Angels. With Angels repeatable low mana cost ramp is more important then a single creature removal spell.

Good luck with your deck.

Said on golgari elves...

#16

Hey, consider Sol Ring ? It's a staple mana rock in Commander. Consider less Swamps and more Golgari dual lands? Green mana is much more important than black. 11 Swamps really reduces the consistency of having a green source turn one for a green one drop mana dork. You don't want to draw all Swamps and no Forests.

You can speed up game play and help color fixing by adding more dual lands that can ETB untapped:

Others:

Several of these lands could replace lands that always ETB tapped: Foul Orchard , Golgari Guildgate , Jungle Hollow , Golgari Rot Farm . Elves of Deep Shadow is very helpful since can make black mana. Deathrite Shaman if playing multiplayer since can exile lands from opponents graveyards.

Good luck with your deck.

#17

Hey, nice upgrades to the precon.

Green mana is much more important than black mana with Elves. Having an equal amount of Forests and Swamps can be problematic since you could draw all Swamps and no Forests which will be difficult to cast Elves. Elves of Deep Shadow is a helpful one drop mana Elf because can make black mana. Elvish Harbinger is an Elf tutor and can make black mana. Consider cutting some Swamps for more Golgari dual lands?

March 28, 2021 12:42 p.m. Edited.

Hey, well done on a budget.

Command Tower , Exotic Orchard and Path of Ancestry are staple budget rainbow lands in Commander. Currently Farseek and Three Visits can't search for a white dual land only Cinder Glade . The new Snow dual lands Alpine Meadow and Arctic Treeline are two different land types one being Plains.

Court of Bounty is a good card with Dinos since it can potentially cheat them from your hand onto the battlefield or it lets you put a land. The monarch can be repeatable draw and Dinos can be good blockers to keep the monarch. Berserkers' Onslaught can give Gishath double strike and if he does combat damage to a player then you trigger his ability twice. Double strike makes all other Dinos more powerful and has bonkers interaction with Quartzwood Crasher .

Hey, good start and nice Legion foil pull! Obviously you have to finish the manabase and you should really do that before you make any other changes. That being said here's some Sliver upgrades to consider:

Quick is very good with cascade, casting Slivers at instant speed.

What's your budget for the manabase? Would you like some advice on the manabase? Good luck with your deck.

#20

Hey, well done version of Kykar on a low budget.

Consider Retraction Helix and Everflowing Chalice ? These two cards combo with Jeskai Ascendancy for infinite storm count on a budget. With Kykar this combo is infinite Spirits and infinite red mana. Without a combo or repeatable ways to shuffle all cards in your graveyard back into your library such as Elixir of Immortality I think you're going to have trouble winning games with the current strategy. One idea is the chipping away at your opponents can help to setup a combo to finish and win the game.

With the strategy here Feather, the Redeemed pairs well with Kykar since cards that target a creature you control can then be repeatedly cast to create Spirits and/or draw cards. In multiplayer low mana cost instants that draw can be a lot of draw and are borderline busted with Feather. With Feather blue adds to what Boros doesn't have such as Retraction Helix , Shadow Rift and Leap . If attacking with Kykar and Spirits then Reconnaissance Mission and Mask of Memory can be consistent repeatable draw sources since flying creatures can consistently do combat damage to a player.

Some budget land upgrades to consider:

Good luck with your deck.
