Aerie Ouphes Discussion
4 months ago
Thanks for the comment Byuante.
So this deck isn't really about attacking, which is why I have left out some of the more obvious finishers like Overwhelming Stampede and Craterhoof Behemoth . Though adding in one mass pump spell isn't a bad idea if my primary win-con fails.
Speaking of which, Furystoke Giant and Aerie Ouphes are part of this deck's win condition. This deck is all about using the persist mechanic to go infinite. Each creature with persist creates an infinite loop with a free sac outlet and either Grumgully, the Generous or Melira, Sylvok Outcast on the battlefield. I run all of the persist creatures simply because there aren't many of them to begin with.
Add in any of Purphoros, God of the Forge , Impact Tremors , Altar of Dementia , Blasting Station , Warstorm Surge , or Stalking Vengeance to close out the game. Though now that I see all of the finishers listed next to one another, I may cut Stalking Vengeance or Warstorm Surge . 6 payoffs is likely too many.
Woodfall Primus is a special case because it is both the best persist creature, and yet due to its ability, it is the worst for the combo. It can't go infinite because it must destroy a noncreature permanent. That means it will eventually have to start targeting my own things. I almost left it out of the deck because it basically reads: "your opponent's can't play for the rest of the game". However, it is just a very good card on it's own so I left it in the deck.
Broken Bond is an interesting card that I really should try out. I always see it, but because it's sorcery speed I have never tried it. Plus it's another card that deals with Torpor Orb which automatically makes it something to consider.

I don't know if you have a budget, so hopefully these card's seem reasonable
Phyrexian Altar - Always nice having another sac outlet
Keeper of Fables - Another non-human benefiting card
Craterhoof Behemoth - A good finisher
Overwhelming Stampede - Another one
Triumph of the Hordes - Just a suggestion...note: I am not responsible for lost friends if you play this card XD
Broken Bond - Removal and ramp
In terms of things that are a bit lackluster:
Woodfall Primus - I, personally, don't think this is that good of a card, it just seems so expensive for removal
Furystoke Giant - Seems bad
Aerie Ouphes - Seems limited in its scope
Regrowth - You have Eternal Witness, maybe a bit redundant?
Spawning Pit - Depending on your personal experience, this might be a bad use of a sac outlet. Up to you
Hope this helps in some way!

Nice list, should be fun for casual play. I'd look at mechanics like morbid Tragic Slip , Scavenge Slitherhead , unearth Extractor Demon , and 'classic' sacrifice effect creatures like Spore Frog or Bottle Gnomes / Brindle Boar . Stag is currently your only way to deal with flying creatures, so something like Aerie Ouphes would likely help.
Past that, relax and build something to be fun with your playgroup. Good casual games aren't about consistancy (uneless its consistant fun), they are about creating fun memories and flashing in Gluttonous Slime in response to living end.

Solid Teeg list!

Since it looks like the deck is semi-budget I won’t suggest anything overly price but one card to start out with to add a tad more speed would be Ancient Tomb and it won’t exactly break the bank. Here’s a few cards that would combo off of Mikaeus quite nicely
- Woodfall Primus with a way to continually sac him you could wipe out your opponents boardstates.
- Aerie Ouphes will take out all opponents flying critters.
- Cauldron of Souls to give any or all your critters persist to survive an opponents board wipe or for whenever you sac one of your own critters for an effect such as your caustic caterpillar.
If you like any of these cards I can’t offer any help as to what to remove for them because it seems you have this deck fairly streamlined as it is right now. If anything it would be a couple creatures but I’m sure they all serve a purpose in this deck right now.

Here’s a few card ideas to bounce around your head:
- Melira, Sylvok Outcast makes for amazing synergy with the next few cards
- Glen Elendra Archmage=infinite Negate to protect your boardstate or for politicking reasons protect another opponents boardstate.
- Aerie Ouphes destroy all opponents flying critters
- Grazing Kelpie get all your dead critters back in your library just to tutor for them again.
- River Kelpie to draw as many cards as you want.
- Woodfall Primus plus a sac outlet to destroy anything but creatures

With a bit of proper layering, Mazirek really likes Aerie Ouphes

Have you considered Aerie Ouphes and other creatures with native persist?
Those ouphes with Mazirek will clear the skies on their own and put a infinite counters on your creatures as long as there is one creature with flying.
With Mazirek any creature with native persist with and a reusable sacrificial outlet will put infinite counters on your creatures and get and infinite byproduct of whatever the sacrifial outlet does, deck your opponents if it's the Altar of Dementia or get infinite mana if it's either Ashnod's Altar or Phyrexian Altar.
