1. This deck is awsome…I am new to commander and decided to build this deck just to test it out…Seems like it is mass NonBasic Land Control deck with the powerful effect of Child of Alara and Primevel Titan…

    Super awsome..I would like to hear more on how to play it because I am loving the Glacial Chasm with Zuran Orb and Crucible of Worlds…The only issue I have had is the deck is expensive so I had to make a LOT of proxies. Any Recommendations on Replacements for some of the Ravina lands, Volrath Stronghold, Tabernacle at Pendril Vale, Diamond Valley because I can't afford them…

    Maybe you could make a Child of Alara Balling on a Budget deck for the newbies trying to get into Commander. 🙂

  2. Suggested budget-izations:

    -Miren, the Moaning Well for Diamond Valley. Less efficient, but still gets the job done.

    -Magus of the Tabernacle, Propaganda, Collective Restraint, or others for Tabernacle.

    -Volrath's Stronghold can be replaced by Buried Alive, so you can go get Genesis and make that work.

    -Rav lands… are worth shelling out for. Probably can replace with painlands.

    If you're running things like Buried Alive, I could see adding a Recoup. Recouping a Rude Awakening, for example, could be potent.

    To the author: have you considered Blasted Landscape?
