Alpha Status Discussion

Thanks for the suggestion! Alpha Status is an awesome card, but I could not justify it's use because it only targets one creature. It gets shut down too easily to have the snow-ball value I need in this deck.


That Stuffy Doll combo is hilarious

"1-hit KO" or "Infinite combos" or "Insta-win Combos", I only enjoy them in my decks if they take multiple cards/turns to set up. Almost makes them balanced ;)

Stuffy Doll would take itself, Master of the Wild Hunt, and at least 2 other cards/enchantments to get a relevant amount of wolf tokens on the battlefield.

Thanks for the suggestions

Alpha Status is an often overlooked card that will turn any creature in a tribal deck into a monster.

It's looking good bro. I have some suggestions for cards that are on the weaker side:

Equilibrium -- I feel like this card sounds good in theory, but I feel like it is taking up space for a more valuable card (maybe something like Rhystic Study?)

Icy Blast -- chances are obviously high that you're going to have a creature with power greater than 4, but you'd be better off just using Cyclonic Rift (which I see you already have) or some other form of removal (maybe Blasphemous Act, Starstorm or Chain Reaction?)

Predator's Rapport -- I don't really see this as being a life-gain deck. It is more of a beat-down deck.

Mindswipe or Overwhelming Denial -- These could work, but I'm definitely partial to plain ol' Counterspell.

Stratus Dancer -- again, I'm partial to Counterspell.

Some cards you might want to add:

Erratic Portal -- you have a lot of bouncing creature cards. With erratic portal, you can bounce your creatures and instead add a more powerful creature (maybe like one I listed below)

Alpha Status -- might seem a little weak, but if you can get it out and enchant Animar with it, that's one big dude.

Maybe you might want to look into the archetypes: Archetype of Aggression, Archetype of Imagination, or Archetype of Endurance.

I know this is a creature based deck, but personally I think having at least one or two artifact/enchantment removal cards would be handy. Maybe something like Krosan Grip or Appetite for the Unnatural?

I see you have a decent amount of creatures that tap for mana, but I also recommend something like Darksteel Ingot or Transguild Promenade.

So far it looks like a good build. I'm looking forward to seeing it in action!

Alpha Status or Coat of Arms as a possible finisher

Garruk Relentless  Flip has a green/black color identity so hes not playable in a red/green deck, same with Canopy Vista and Razorverge Thicket.

and cards like Metallic Mimic, Adaptive Automaton, Brass Herald, Cryptic Gateway, Descendants' Path, Door of Destinies, Obelisk of Urd, Shared Animosity, Urza's Incubator and Alpha Status help fuel the tribal theme of the deck.

Basically, your enchanted creature will get +2/+2 for each other creature you control, since all your creatures will be the same creature type. Alpha Status only cares about the creatures that are on the battlefield, so the rest of Conspiracy does not interact with it.

Perhaps I'm missing something, but how does Alpha Status work with Conspiracy? Conspiracy reads that cards out of play are the chosen type.
