I came to this video curious about how you'd build a colorless deck on a budget. I'm leaving this video with an outstanding desire to make and upgrade this deck! I even got some good stuff to put in it, like Darksteel Plate and Blackblade Reforged!
Got the structure of this deck and upgraded it with maybe 5 cards and I’m extremely impressed at effective it is. Also random side note but this deck does extremely well against land destruction because you have so many mana rocks that play more mana rocks. I played 2 games where all lands were destroyed and I got so far ahead and won both.
Love a lot of this, but I think I disagree about Wayfarer's Bauble--it's not enough other utility and with only 3 basic lands I don't think that really counts as much ramp. Though, I'm not sure it'd be a Commander's Quarters deck without it......
If you have little bit more change in your pocket to spend get Ursa's power plant mine and Tower lands cards and if you are lucky to pull all three of them on your opening hand or within three rounds you have 7 Mana because you got Tron going
Looks fun as hell but ... i wonder if my playgroup is just much more cutthroat than most ... my rocks would likely just endup being exiled or destroyed, my 10 mana commander constantly countered, etc. I just don't see how this deck would ever work unless you are only playing vs non interactive decks.
True! But you can kill with commander damage, which only takes 21.
"In addition to the normal Magic loss conditions, if a player is dealt 21 points of combat damage from a single commander over the course of the game, that player loses the game."
I run a Kozilek, Butcher of Truth edh deck. The lands that have a large cost and tap to amke a dude are actually not that great and I would replace them with wastes if you can. I understand they were chosen for their cost but they are not good. Unknown Shores and Co. are strictly worse in this deck than a waste and again replace with a waste.
Well, I think that this channel is freacking good. Maybe you should try a Hope of Ghirapur EDH too. Imagine that gigantic topter hitting those enemy faces with thousand of swords and equipments! It would be nice. Thank you.
Make a Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest deck tech. I think it'd be done very well with you, Mitch, because Fleshbag marauder, merciless executioner, slum reaper, and plaguecrafter are cheap auto includes. I love your deck techs and especially this affinity deck because colorless is hard to build more so than a monocolored.
Love this video! I’ve had two copies of this card for a while and now I can put one to good use. Thank you so much for this deck tech. I also have a suggestion for your next video and maybe it could be fun and interesting. If you see this, I want to see you build Grand Arbiter, Maeyael, or Brudiclad. I’d love to see how you’d make them and see ways I could improve on my own decks.
I was thinking on doing a version of this deck by switching Ramos with Kozilek as the commander. I might not get the counters for pumping Ramos so often, but at lest I will have more options to chose from for ramping, like signets, some splashes of colors like x-burning spells, Sai, and a lot more flexible mana base.
Hey Mitch! I've been a fan of yours since I saw your budget Nicol Bolas deck and I've been playing it since then (with the recommended upgrades). Quick suggestion, this has probably been said already but how about changing your upgrades section to $10, $25 and $50 upgrades for that specific deck? I know it would take a little bit more time researching but I really think it'll be worth it. Just something to think about. Keep up the awesome job man! Thanks again for making amazing deck techs!
+The Commander's Quarters That definitely makes sense! Your upgrade section is one of the things that differs from other deck tech makers. It's just that for people like me who's just getting into commander with some change to spare, I would really love to get some insights on what cards to put to these decks in general, meaning without taking into consideration the meta in my LGS. So I think chopping the upgrade section into $10, $20-25 and $50 will definitely help. Doesn't necessarily have to be in the video, say just put it in the video description so it doesn't change the structure of your videos.
Thanks! I will definitely take the suggestion in mind but I like to leave reasonable upgrades replacements up for the viewers to decide. It really depends on your playstyle and meta as to what you would take out and adjust with!
+The Commander's Quarters So a lot of decks on MTGGoldfish have a small part before they do the deck tech dedicated to who might enjoy the deck. Something like You might like this deck if you, enjoy voltron, big creatures and equipment based decks. You might not like this deck if you, prefer control, like playing politically, and don't like voltron
I would recomand putting a geode golem (5 mana 5/3 artifact - golem whit trample) into this deck it go's for the low price of 0.43 on tcg player. And if it does damadge to a player u may cast your commander ? (U have to play additional cost like commander tax)
Reasonable upgrade #1: Get wastes.
There are a lot of "everyone gets some basics" effects in commander, as well as a lot of spells that hate on nonbasic lands (blood moon, ruination, price of progress, wave of vitriol, magus of the moon, back to basics, just to name a few).
+The Commander's Quarters will look into that. In the middle of making your dino deck at the moment and see how that goes. Only a few cards off before seeing it in action. It's not the elder dino though.
Thanks again for letting me know
Now I'm really curious about how you would build a Emrakul the promised end deck. I must admit I did open one in a booster so this request is kinda selfish but still, interesting commander to build around I think.
+SickAlasta Library of Leng has a similar issue with Kozilek, where Library cares about about spells and effects, Kozilek's discard is a cost and is missed by the Library. Still a good card overall though
Library of leng is what this deck needs mah boy.
Library of Leng 1C Artifact
Skip the discard phase of your turn. If a spell or effect forces you to discard, you may discard to the top of your library rather than to your graveyard. If the discard is random, you may look at the card before choosing where to discard it.
Market Price Normal $1.23
There are a few listings under a dollar.
+The Commander's Quarters not gonna be a patron yet unfortunately but by the end of the year it will happen, so we can make deck and get it to me by new years of next year, like a gift. I do have a suggestion for a commander, either Lazav the Multifarious, or Aryel, Knight of windgrace.
+Griff Fourn a great card in a lot of decks but I would have to disagree for this one. Before you get five lands out it doesn't do anything for you. So it's going to take you longer to ramp and get your mana rocks out, setting you back.
I hope they lift the restriction on colourless commanders in the future. At least let them act as a mono-colour commander of your choice, like R or U, instead of shafting the entire deck.
Then again I'm biased since there are some non-legendary Eldrazi creatures which I want to build a deck around but can't ;(
+Chris Matejic chronicles are about $1.50 a piece. That's rather budget, though this was running it pretty close since CQ runs an EXTREMELY low budget (needing to average about 25 cents a card, one reason why the commander tends not to be included.)
