Aid from the Cowl Discussion

Squirrel_of_War on Muldrotha Exhumes All

@Force_of_Willb - Ancestral Knowledge will shuffle the library when it leaves so you need to pay the upkeep for a turn or two at least. it's also a bit pricey.

Deadbridge Chant is one of my favorite cards and I had it in here when I first built the deck but it never stuck around for more than the turn I cast it. I might find a spot for it but at the moment I don't think there are any cards in here that are less useful.

Dreamborn Muse is great and I put in Forgotten Creation which is similar but I ended up taking it out because in my playgroup if the card doesn't do something the turn it is cast or has an ability that can be activated at instant speed then it is very likely it will get removed before you get any use from it. Also muse can potentially help my opponents or make them hate me and target me more than usual.

I really appreciate you input on what to remove since that is always the hardest thing to decide when I get great suggestions.

Nyx Weaver is a card that is on the fence. I have him in currently because he is basically a draw 2 additional cards each turn but the main reason is that I can count him as an enchantment or creature for Muldrotha's ability.

Body Snatcher is part of the Hulk chain so he has to stay.

Aid from the Cowl is something I just added in but have not yet got to try it out. It seems promising since it will trigger at the end of the turn I cast it so I'm excited to see it play out and it costs less than Deadbridge Chant and doesn't rely on my graveyard. In my playgroup my yard usually gets exiled a few times each game so Cowl can still be an advantage without my yard.

Overeager Apprentice is an all star in a few of my other decks and I recently added him in here to see if he works out. I might remove him after some testing.

Other cards that I'm not 100% sure on are Spellskite and Mishra's Bauble. I may remove one to add in Tezzeret the Seeker since he can tutor any of the artifacts in the deck the turn he is cast (with the exception of Mindslaver).

Thanks for the comment! Don't for get to +1 if you like the deck!

Thanks! I think Harvest Season is just a bit outside of what the deck aims to do (and won't do much good by the time I have a significant number of tapped creatures that could get enough lands out to be worth it - as well as costing too much mana to get me lands when I do need them, before I have creatures), and Aid from the Cowl is a bit too situational/costs too much mana/doesn't have a strong enough effect, in my opinion, and would either end up putting things in the bottom that I'd rather be playing, or play cheap enchantments or creatures that aren't worth its own cost. It's better for decks that run more/costlier permanents than this.

I don't actually find myself chump blocking that often, either - my Saprolings are a resource, as they can tap to pay Convoke costs, or any costs with Cryptolith Rite, and I'd usually rather lose life than the mana potential that can lead into a victory by playing a really high on Supply or Mirror Entity.

I like the deck what are your thoughts on Harvest Season for ramp or Aid from the Cowl for digging when you chump block with the saprolings? Are they win more or just not helpful with your plan.

What do people think of Aid from the Cowl? Pretty easy to get the revolt trigger with fetches and tokens getting sac'ed - combo it with Cream of the Crop to setup what goes into play. Potential Landfall trigger from Aid from the Cowl dropping a land in play. Gruul Turf could trigger revolt as well.. Hmmm

Oh...I knew Gitrog (he laments). It got so much hate from my playgroup. The only deck to beat it was Rhys the Redeemed; I didn't run enough boardwipes like Damnation, Decree of Pain, Necromantic Selection, or Toxic Deluge.

Oracle of Mul Daya, Crucible of Worlds, Scapeshift, Tilling Treefolk, World Breaker, Zendikar's Roil, and Aid from the Cowl would do nicely.

Blighted Woodland, Dunes of the Dead, and Petrified Field are a few land suggestions.

HashMasta on The aether is strong with this one (budget energy)

i'm gonna assume that this will be a modern deck. so here are a couple things you will wanna get your hands on.

Dragonlord Dromoka with this card, you can pretty much cast any creatures without the fear of that pesky old counterspell. it is also a good body in the air for both defense and offense.

Voice of Resurgence is a good sideboard card in my experience against things like burn or creature removal heavy things.

Doubling Season would be perfect for a deck like this. And if you had more token producers such as the resurgence, would be beast mode activated imo.

Panharmonicon - almost a duh card in an any kind of counter deck.

also since you have Aid from the Cowl, you could get some beef in the deck such as Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Worldspine Wurm, Platinum Emperion and stuff like that.

If I am wrong and this is just for standard cards, feel free to laugh at me but if you were gonna make it modern would suggest to look into these cards.

I always wanted to make a Mayael the Anima deck, this one looks nice.
Hua Tuo, Honored Physician this guy is a recurrent noxious revival, seems perfect.
If you could get your hands on a Scroll Rack it would be great, Sylvan Library or Mirri's Guile can also help together with your Sensei's Divining Top.
When you already have top of library manipulation and big creatures Lurking Predators and Aid from the Cowl are a specially good idea.
Champion of Rhonas and Deathrender if you think you need more cheating creatures onto the battlefield.

triggered! The plural for Pokemon is Pokemon.

I'd recommend putting a Sensei's Divining Top in here somewhere, it will always make Aid from the Cowl into at least a cantrip. Or use the Top Tech method to get one of the top 3 cards into play.
