Deck Description

Kick back and get comfy: We are staying here for a while!

This is a Budget Elder Dragon Highlander deck (BEDH). It is meant for the Elder Dragon Highlander format, a.k.a. Commander. If you are not familiar with the format, I'll link it below for you.

I mostly use MTG Vault for my own private projects nowadays, but feel free to comment or request a deck of your choice. I've loved the Vault so far, and I like that they are still improving on it, as well as I am improving on my English language skills.

So, if you like what you see, consider checking out some of my other budget-y work from the link below.

How to Play

Archelos might look like some dumb old turtle, but he enables some wicked combo-shenanigans! Look out for his terrifying abilities!

This deck is based around infinite combos and other strong synergies. A couple of such are listed down below:
- Archelos (untapped) + Llanowar Scout / Scaled Herbalist / Skyshroud Ranger / Zimone, Quandrix Prodigy + Retreat to Coralhelm + Any land that bounces itself back into your hand = INFINITE LANDFALL-TRIGGERS + (POSSIBLY) INFINITE MANA
- Archelos (untapped) + Fertilid + Retreat to Kazandu = Fetch basic lands for {G} a piece.
- Kiora's Follower / Vizier of Tumbling Sands + Any land that produces two mana upon tapping + Overgrowth / Dawn's Reflection + Crab Umbra / Sword of the Paruns = INFINITE MANA

Statistics, pros and cons. Consider reading these, especially if you are a newbie!

Statistics: (out of 5)
- Deck Speed: <> (How quick the deck is?)
- Creature Focus: <><><> (How much this deck relies on creatures?)
- Card Synergy: <><><><><> (Do the cards of the deck help out each other well?)
- Card Value: <><><> (How much card advantage can you get out of your cards?)
- Level of Complexity: <><><><> (How hard this deck is to properly play?)
- Fun: <><><> (How fun this deck is, according to Northy's personal opinion?)

+ Easily wins out of nowhere if left undisturbed.
+ Flexible combos mean that you might not need specific cards to win.
+ Given proper cards and resources, you can take control of the entire game with counterspells, tapping effects and constant recursion!

- This deck is quite slow: you might suffer in very aggressive metas.
- Control-heavy players may disrupt your synergies at worst possible moments. Hold on to a counterspell while trying to combo off!
