Submit a list of cards below to bulk import them all into your sideboard. Post one card per line using a format like "4x Birds of Paradise" or "1 Blaze", you can even enter just the card name by itself like "Wrath of God" for single cards.

Deck Description

It seems like the new Dominaria cards are in the database.
Let's get cracking, shall we?

This is a Budget Elder Dragon Highlander deck (BEDH for short). 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

I personally like the new Baird. He kinda encourages you to mostly build around power buffs, and ignore the traditional token generation. So, this deck includes a lot of power buffing (both group buffs and single target), as well as numerous ways to keep your dudes up and alive for action!

As soon as the game begings, start looking for ways to make Baird stick around. If no other good early plays are available, sure you can drop him in, but remember to be careful! Use other creatures as safety measures for Baird: try to stack some buffs on them so your opponents are more likely to kill them instead of Baird.

Once the game rolls on, you can look out for ways to unleash lethal barrages of damage. This can either be performed by gathering up some tokens for a wide push or by stacking up several buffs on a single creature before 'going to town'. Versatility is a virtue, remember!

Statistics: (out of 5)
- Deck Speed: <><><> (How quick the deck is?)
- Creature Focus: <><><><> (How much this deck relies on creatures?)
- Creature Size: <><><><> (How big are the main creatures of this deck?)
- 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?)

+ A couple of options to finish off low health opponents: big single creatures, large hordes, or perhaps even Double Visioned Comet Storm?
+ A surprising amount of boardwipes and other control cards for a creature-focused deck.
+ Baird provides an interesting and unusual take on weenie / horde decks!

- Quite reliant on Baird. Try keeping him alive!
- Quite low on card advantage, outside of boardwipes and 'go wide' protection spells. Make your cards count!

Deck discussion for BEDH: Unity Through Strength

What about Glory of Warfare and Sword of the Paruns? The sword might be a little bit out of budget tough.
