I began content creation in August 2019 with a crummy laptop that would immediately die when the charger was unplugged. Never in a million years did I think that I would get a preview card from Wizards of the Coast.

Let's talk about Imoti, Celebrant of Bounty. This uncommon Naga Druid brings cascade back to the table for Commander players. No longer are we limited to Maelstrom Wanderer and Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder. Both of these legendaries have access to other colors full of Cascade spells, however, neither of them let you cascade as often or reliably as Imoti. Free spells, especially free big spells, are inherently broken in Magic, making Imoti incredibly powerful.

Ramp

Ramp is important in any deck, however this is doubly true in our Imoti, Celebrant of Bounty build. Brewing around spells with converted mana cost 6 or more means that our curve is going to be incredibly high. This may seem intimidating at first—it's insanely intimidating to me if I'm being honest—but filling our deck with both high and low-cost ramp spells will see us through.

We have three ways to ramp in this deck: Getting extra lands, playing extra lands, and doubling our mana.

Tutoring for lands is the most common way for us to start our ramp journey. Cards like Cultivate and Kodama's Reach are staples in any deck that runs green and definitely have a home here. However, we need more than the norm for us to get those big spells out onto the battlefield.The newly printed Three Visits (the Faerie art is to die for), Nature's Lore, and Wood Elves are great spells that allow us to not only tutor for basic Forests but also Tropical Island or Breeding Pool, making them incredibly strong assets to building our mana base.

Our last land tutor spell happens to be my other preview card for Commander Legends: Reshape the Earth.

This spell has made waves in the community. Sitting at nine mana, this spell not only triggers Imoti, Celebrant of Bounty cascade ability but allows you to tutor for 10 lands and put them onto the battlefield tapped. Let me say that again. You search your deck for any land, and put it immediately into play. Ten times. This is huge!

This allows us to fix any way we want to and can snag us some of our scarier lands. Paired with Field of the Dead, this can not only cascade into something amazing but fill up our board with real estate and Zombie tokens.

Our next ramp strategy involves playing additional lands on our turns. The recently reprinted Exploration and Oracle of Mul Daya allow us to play an extra land on our turns. Plus, Oracle allows us to play with the top card of our library revealed. This is incredibly fun, as it allows us to attempt to sculpt our cascade triggers. Instead of playing the land in our hand, we play the one on top of our library and get a sneak peek at what's to come. This can also be an incredibly fun way to psych our opponents out.

Our final, and probably our most powerful form of additional land ramp is Dryad of the Ilysian Grove. While this Dryad loves to let us play an additional land, there is one thing he loves to do even more: make our lands every basic land type. It's always funny to tap a Forest for black mana in a game of Commander, especially when you don't need it. While this secondary ability seems to shine more in three or four-color decks, it can still be incredibly helpful when we just aren't drawing that one land we need.

Our final form of ramp is the most gluttonous: mana doubling. Green is to mana doubling as red is to damage doubling. We are in the perfect colors to maximize our mana pool for casting many big mana spells when we'd normally be worried about casting only one.

To start us out we have one of Green's most discussed mana doublers: Nyxbloom Ancient. Rather than double the mana a permanent produces, it allows us to triple it. It also has a converted mana cost of 7, making it perfect for Imoti, Celebrant of Bounty cascade trigger as well.

Our next form of mana doubling is Zendikar Resurgent. This enchantment is a double threat, allowing us to double our mana and draw a card whenever we cast a creature spell. Card draw is incredibly important for the health of a deck, and since we are in Simic, we definitely are not lacking in this department. The fact that this enchantment kills two birds with one stone makes it incredibly valuable to cascade into.

Our final mana doubler is one of Green's most infamous creatures: Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger. This card inspires major salt by not only ramping us, but stalling our opponents. Vorinclex makes players second guess if they really need to cast that spell burning a hole in their hand. Is the risk worth the reward? Sitting at eight mana, this feels like it was made for Imoti, Celebrant of Bounty— just think how hysterical it would be to play Vorinclex and cascade into Nyxbloom Ancient!

Big Creatures

So we have the big mana, but what are we going to do with it? When working on this build, I wanted to be a bit more creature-focused rather than spell-focused. Instants and sorceries are fun to cascade into, but I was worried about hitting the wrong one at the wrong time. This brew currently runs a total of 30 creatures (excluding our commander), making the likelihood of hitting a terrifying behemoth very high. While I love all 30 creatures, I want to highlight some of the beaters in this deck that allow us to do more than just hit.

Our first two creatures happen to be from the same cycle of cards: the Archetypes.

Playing and cascading into spells that not only do stuff for us but impact our opponents are of the highest value. These two Archetypes are perfect because they do exactly that while hitting Imoti, Celebrant of Bounty converted mana cost threshold. Denying our opponents flying and hexproof while giving us both of these keywords strengthens our board presence and makes us all the more terrifying.

Our next big mana baddie is one of my favorite green cards ever printed: Avenger of Zendikar.

This seven-mana Elemental is a monster in this deck because of the magnitude of its token generation. One of my goals when playing this deck in paper in the future is to cast Reshape the Earth and cascade into Avenger of Zendikar while Field of the Dead is out. Tokens for days!

Our final, and probably most impactful creature in this deck is the new Apex Devastator. This is the great play of the deck, the "alright y'all, game two?" play. When paired with Imoti, Celebrant of Bounty the four cascade triggers grow to five! Because this spell sits at 10 mana, we are able to cascade into almost anything in our deck. Also… it's a flippin' 10/10! How cool is that?!

Removal

Removal was one of the hardest things to integrate into this deck. Most great removal spells are incredibly low in mana cost, and while we want to have some low-cost spells in our deck, flooding the list with them can't create a lot of feels-bad moments. So chat and I had to get creative. Of course we had to include Pongify, Beast Within, Reality Shift, and Cyclonic Rift, but with the remainder of our removal is a bit more complex.

We desperately needed artifact and enchantment removal. We originally had Krosan Grip and Oko, Thief of Crowns to help facilitate this, however, they were ultimately cut because they didn't fit the higher CMC theme.

Kogla, the Titan Ape and Bane of Progress are great creatures to cascade into that grant us some nice artifact and enchantment removal. While Bane of Progress only removes when it enters the battlefield, Kogla is amazing because we can destroy a target whenever it attacks. Plus, when it enters the battlefield it fights another creature, making it a fun instance of single target removal.

Speaking of fighting, our final form of removal is Apex Altisaur. More often than not, this won't stay on the battlefield long. When it enters the battlefield it fights target creature we don't control. This will trigger its enrage ability, making it fight more creatures our opponents control. The result is a fun board wipe on a stick that also triggers Imoti, Celebrant of Bounty cascade ability.

Big Spells

This deck can't run off creatures and creatures alone—this isn't a Nikya of the Old Ways brew. We need some dummy thicc spells to pad out the rest of our strategy.

Sea Gate Restoration, Rishkar's Expertise, and Dig Through Time are great high-cost spells that not only trigger our commander's cascade but allow us to snag some much-needed cards. Cards like Praetor's Counsel and Seasons Past are perfect for us to recur some of our most powerful creatures and spells.

But the deck's most powerful spell is Omniscience. This 10-mana enchantment makes all our spells free while leaving their huge mana costs intact. Imoti, Celebrant of Bounty still triggers even though we paid nothing for our spells!

The MVP

The MVP of this deck is a card that I ignored when it first released in Theros Beyond Death: Thryx, the Sudden Storm.

If I could give Imoti, Celebrant of Bounty a partner, it would be this legendary creature. They seem to go hand in hand. We've already loaded this deck with high-cost spells, and Thryx, the Sudden Storm makes them all better, lowering their costs and preventing opponents from countering them. Who cares if the blue player has mana available—tap out with confidence! While Thryx does not fall under Imoti's cascade threshold, he supports all the spells that do, landing him on this week's MVP throne!

Final Thoughts

When I first laid eyes on Imoti, Celebrant of Bounty, I knew immediately that I wanted to build around her. However, I'd be lying if I said I knew where to begin. Cascade was something I had only fiddled with in passing with The First Sliver. This ability was definitely outside of my comfort zone, and I am so happy to have a chat that helped me strengthen this aspect of my deck building.

There are so many more new cards to explore from Commander Legends. Let's get to brewing!
