Aggravated Assault Discussion

PlutoniumWedding on Rosheen, the XXX Parody

19 hours ago

I've playtested your deck against a couple of mine, which I think are generally fairly close on the casual-hardcode scale. Here are my random thoughts and suggestions.

Lands:

Out:

In:

Specific replacements:

More general suggestions:

Out:

  • Might of Old Krosa One-off buffs aren't that great when you have three opponents you need to get down from 40 life. It's certainly not reliable as removal, either.
  • Increasing Savagery Your many X-creatures turn mana into power and toughness. No need to have a separate card that does the same.
  • Solidarity of Heroes Very powerful at the right time, but it's a one-off effect that requires some setup.
  • Feral Incarnation - Three 3/3 beasts isn't worth the mana, and you don't have enough token generation to make it "free".
  • Skarrg Guildmage - There are better trample-givers, like Nylea, God of the Hunt.

In:

  • Genesis In this type of deck with low-count high-value creatures I'd try to sneak this in, but it depends on how graveyard-hatey your meta is.
  • Asceticism Again, high-value creatures that respond poorly to single-target removal. Keep your hydras safe!
  • Death's Presence Even if your hydras die you get to keep most of their value.
  • In the Web of War, Fires of Yavimaya or Xenagos, God of Revels - Haste on large creatures is huge, you can swing and kill someone without them getting the time to set up defence.
  • Gyre Sage - Makes each hydra larger than the previous one, which makes him larger, which makes the next hydra larger... :o
  • Elemental Bond - Card draw when you play creatures keeps the creatures coming.
  • Soul of the Harvest - As above.
  • Aggravated Assault - The plan is to make lots of mana and huge creatures. Letting them work double shifts the next turn might secure a kill (or two).

Slightly out of budget suggestions:

To make room for this I'd personally cut all the treefolk. They're better in mono-green.

It depends on your meta, but I'd also cut all planeswalkers except maybe Xenagos. They just tend to die so quickly in EDH. Xenagos generally at least pays for himself, though.

You could also consider multi-mana dorks, like Bloom Tender, Fyndhorn Elder, Greenweaver Druid, Nantuko Elder, Priest of Titania, Shaman of Forgotten Ways, Somberwald Sage, Whisperer of the Wilds, Wirewood Channeler, Karametra's Acolyte and dubiously Frontier Siege.

If your big creatures are getting countered, consider Dosan the Falling Leaf, Gaea's Herald, Vexing Shusher.

Finally, you could consider the staples Exploration, Burgeoning and Oracle of Mul Daya for early game ramp and Zendikar Resurgent for big mana (Mana Reflection being out of budget).

I hope you can take at least something from this.

Hopefully I didn't miss anyone listing these
Sun Titan + (Animate Dead / Angelic Renewal / Gift of Immortality / Dance of the Dead ) + Goblin Bombardment => infinite damage
Hell's Caretaker + Thornbite Staff => enables infinite reanimations during upkeep
Saffi Eriksdotter + Karmic Guide / Renegade Rallier / Reveillark + Goblin Bombardment => infinite damage (sacrifice saffi, target the reanimator then sacrifice reanimator to goblin bombardment)
persist / undying creatures + Nim Deathmantle + Ashnod's Altar => infinite ETBs for the creature you're using
Grave Titan (or anything that generates 2+ tokens) + Nim Deathmantle + Ashnod's Altar => infinite tokens
Isochron Scepter + Dramatic reversal + Gilded Lotus (or any nonland mana source that gets you at least 3 mana) => infinite mana and untaps.
(Animate Dead / Dance of the Dead) + Worldgorger Dragon => infinite etb triggers for your side of the board.
Eye of the Storm + "take an extra turn" cards => infinite turns
2x Felidar Guardian + let's say Champion of Lambholt => infinite etb triggers for cards that care about other cards etbing
Saheeli Rai + Felidar Guardian => infinite 1/4works (create token of felidar with saheeli, flicker saheeli with token's etb, repeat)
Hellkite Charger / Aggravated Assault + Bear Umbra / Nature's Will => infinite combat steps
Arcanis the Omnipotent + Mind Over Matter => infinite card draw, infinite untaps
Reconnaissance + Cunning Sparkmage => attack with sparkmage, target sparkmage howevermany times with recon, respond to untaps resolving by tapping sparkmage => infinite damage
Forbidden Orchard + Intruder Alarm + Voyaging Satyr => infinite mana, infinite creatures under opponent's control, infinite creature untapspersist creatures + Juniper Order Ranger / Cathars' Crusade + Goblin Bombardment => infinite damage
Most of the combos built around persist / infinitely recurring creatures work with any sac outlet and some effect that abuses etb / death triggers, but that would take too long to write in each case so I mostly used goblin bombardment instead of Thermopod + Impact Tremors. Hopefully this is at least somewhat useful.
Cheerios.

Spirits on Fox's Kaalia Deck

3 days ago

Nice preliminary build. +1. Fellow Kaalia of the Vast player Kaalia, the Purifier. I have a bunch of discussion material in my deck if your interested in reading my analysis.

Don't see any missing key cards, perhaps a land bump, Arid Mesa and Marsh Flats, replace some of those basics.

Grand Abolisher is a good protector of Kaalia of the Vast

Still trying to decide if Ash Barrens is better than Evolving Wilds, I think it is unless of course you decide to run an Admonition Angel

You should decide on a mid-range game plan too, Kaalia of the Vast draws hate, if she's being controlled need a game plan or combo. Some common ones I've seen are Crucible of Worlds good with your Armageddon (and others), Worldgorger Dragon is one of my favorites but scares me personally works with your Angel of Despair (and others), Sword of Feast and Famine + Hellkite Charger or Aggravated Assault (OLD SCHOOL), or the one I play and have been trying to refine Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker. Just gives some options for mid-game if Kaalia of the Vast strategy isn't working.

Talisman of Indulgence > Rakdos Signet

Butcher of the Horde didn't work for me, he might work for you, I was trying to abuse his sacrifice. At CMC 4 5/4 he ok, but read your list of 30 creatures and tell me how many you're going to sacrifice to him. Protects them from theft, I suppose, but too situational for me.

Stormbreath Dragon feels a bit too expensive at CMC 5 for a 4/4. But I really actually like that dragon. Personally I woudl run a Rakdos the Defiler or Thundermaw Hellkite or even a Platinum Angel or Kokusho, the Evening Star, ok theres a few! But he looks cool and like the Protection: .

I detest Tariel, Reckoner of Souls, his randomness has burnt me too many times for a tiny 4 power for CMC 7. Very much dislike him lol.

I find my Lightning Greaves critical to my deck, so I run Steelshaper's Gift, I know it's not popular, but I recommend it, never been unhappy pulling it. Idyllic Tutor can be more modular, but for CMC 3.

Sure, you have "only" 22 enchantments, so this isn't the perfect home for Serra's Sanctum. But that doesn't mean it's bad, it's probably still pretty good and worth a slot. If it reliably taps for 1 mana, and sometimes for 2 or occasionally more, that's a solid deal in my eyes.
Even if you are usually fine on mana, isn't some extra mana welcome when you are playing cards like Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion, Rogue's Passage and Aggravated Assault? Also, it seems quite useful when facing a stax deck that taxes your mana.
I honestly have never played with the specific card Serra's Sanctum myself, but i've been surprised by similar cards time and time again. "That one point of extra mana" - sometimes it makes a huge difference. Have you played with the card before? If not, why not test it out with a proxy and see if you like it?

Spirits on Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon

4 days ago

Good Analysis, I also find people don't like seeing Kaalia of the Vast even when there's a Prossh, Skyraider of Kher, but always good fun, fellow Kaalia of the Vast player Kaalia, the Purifier

I'm not sure Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon fits. He is an AMAZING dragon, but for CMC 5 4/4 Infect, he's probably not getting there on 10, maybe with the Sword of Feast and Famine and maybe if you loaded up with an Aggravated Assault but he doesn't have any followup support to get the ball across the goal line.

I tried to make Sublime Archangel, she seemed perfect, CMC 4 for a 4/3 Flying Exalted. She could trigger Kaalia of the Vast make her big. What ended up happening is she would sit there to exalt Kaalia of the Vast and then I'd drop an Angel/Demon/Dragon in and become useless, because next turn I'm attacking with my Hellkite Tyrant and my Kaalia of the Vast to drop my Rune-Scarred Demon. She is an amazing aggro Angel, but my guess is you'll find she isn't as effective as she looks.

Instead of a Hero's Downfall or Utter End may consider Anguished Unmaking. Cheaper and multi-functional. I like lots of control though, so I run all 3 of these in my deck.

Shred Memory and Stoneforge Mystic (Can search, play a sword for CMC 2, as well and use it!) also alternative ways to pull the Lightning Greaves.

Talisman of Indulgence > Rakdos Signet.

Aggravated Assault works good as an alternative to Hellkite Charger making the Sword of Feast and Famine have additional targeted value. Could also Tutor the Aggravated Assault with Dimir Machinations or an Idyllic Tutor.

Some ideas to think of hopefully as well. Lots of other discussion in my decks description if your interested. Still working on making Kaalia of the Vast consistent and Aggro. +1.

Nice! Aggravated Assault + Savage Ventmaw allows for infinite attacks. So does Bear Umbra + Hellkite Charger. Definitely worth considering!

I do agree that more ramp ala some mana rocks like Gilded Lotus and Darksteel Ingot, along with hard ramp spells like Nature's Lore, Skyshroud Claim, etc. would be useful.

Almond1991,
I like Aggravated Assault just a little more than Breath of Fury, but that'd be a fun effect for sure. Stalking Vengeance is good, but I'd never give up Atarka, World Render in the seven-drop slot for it. You may want to run Vicious Shadows too ... I have it in my Hazezon deck, for a similar effect.

Like I mentioned above with Pandemonium vs. Warstorm Surge, I'm not a fan of group hug cards like Coat of Arms.

Thanks though!
