SaberTech on Ancestral Animar

2 weeks ago

It's too bad that Animar doesn't have many ways of tutoring for enchantments, you are pretty much depending on Gamble for that.

One of the biggest concerns I have regarding Aluren is that I like playing Animar when there is a Stax deck at the table, but I really don't want them to have the ability to flash in their creatures like Hushwing Gryff and Eidolon of Rhetoric for free in response to me trying to combo off. Even if Animar is built to be better able to take advantage of Aluren, I am not fond of the idea of giving my opponents the ability to cast spells for free at instant speed in such a competitive environment.

Granted, a lot of cEDH decks aren't as creature heavy as Animar or Bloodpod, so I can see how in terms of averages it can potentially win you more games than it backfires on you.

I think that using Aluren is risky, but if you are willing to use it and are able to snag wins with it then I think they are wins well deserved.

No Aluren? It's been an auto include for me.

I've had games where I've been able to cast Aulren, cast Animar for Free, Cast Man-o-war or another card, bouncing itself into casting whatever is available.

It's occurred on Turn 3 way to many times.

Your meta may be real tight, unfortunately the league I play in has 25+ players with 3+ cEDH decks. Each week is drastically different so I need more versatility then standard lines. Animar, Soul of Combos - Turn 3 Win

Spirits on Cat.

1 month ago

Hey flamingweasels,

Are any of the degenerate combos cat tribal specific. I'm trying to find some cat-centric combos for my Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH Deck but haven't found anything good yet.

All I've been able to come-up with so far, but are really janky are:

Temur Sabertooth + Karametra's Acolyte + Swiftfoot Boots + 4 Devotion | Infinite ETB + Aura Shards or Qasali Slingers Destroy All Artifacts and Enchantments or + 1 Devotion Infinite Mana. No clue what I would do with this mana even if I made it.

Cryptolith Rite + Leonin Battlemage + Oketra's Monument + Whitemane Lion | Infinite 1/1 Warrior Tokens. Who doesn't love 4-card combos that involve 2 cats to make 1/1 warriors that don't even have haste. On the plus side Oketra's Monument looks cat-ish.

Aluren + Fleetfoot Panther or Whitemane Lion | Infinite ETB + Aura Shards or Qasali Slingers Destroy All Artifacts and Enchantments or Healer of the Pride Infinite Life. Aluren terrifies me, none of the cats are ultimately good on their own either.

Changeling Hero + Changeling Titan | Infinite ETB + Aura Shards or Qasali Slingers Destroy All Artifacts and Enchantments or Healer of the Pride Infinite Life. They may not look like cats but they are... I guess.

Leonin Relic-Warder + Oblivion Ring or Journey to Nowhere + Sun Titan or Karmic Guide or Reveillark + Greater Good | Infinite ETB + Aura Shards or Qasali Slingers Destroy All Artifacts and Enchantments or Healer of the Pride Infinite Life. Soon as you say Sun Titan or Karmic Guide or Reveillark which is Saffi Eriksdotter so why would I waste time with Cats.

I've been reading cat after cat card, and nothing has come to me yet like the Archangel of Thune + Spike Feeder | Infinite Life + Infinite +1/+1 Counters type combo.

I'm not sure Chord of Calling + Felidar Sovereign + 40 life is even a combo. More just a mana sponge at life < 40.

If you have anything please let me know!

A cat wearing a Helm of Obedience would be obnoxious enough for me, but not sure any cats enable it. Rest in Peace no-cat combo.

Whats your Tooth and Nail combo, any cats?

Any help very much appreciated.

Nice Start. My version centered around Sage of Hours infinite turns, but this is way more kind-hearted. I recently retired him because he was very two-note (either infect or infinite turns). I also ran Man-o'-War, Shrieking Drake and AEther Adept with Aluren for infinite experience. Another infinite Experience combo was Cloud of Faeries or Peregrine Drake with Deadeye Navigator.

Now that the price has come down a bit Devoted Druid is a nasty little trick. Also, Deranged Hermit is 5 Experience for 5 which can really change a game. Panharmonicon is a neccesity as it makes your commander's etb skill trigger twice (and your ten creatures with etb triggers twice, too!)

ChaosClaws on Marwyn, Mother's Knows Best EDH

After looking at your deck, this aggro approach seems very doable and nasty, but theres a handful of cards I see that just shouldn't be included. Nature's Spiral is just a worse Regrowth, so that's a start. I see with all of the artifact removal that stax is an issue for you. Bane of Progress is a great addition to solve this, but i would take out one of your removal spells for Nature's Claim. You don't care about their life gain when elves can smash for 100+ damage. Another great way to give a stax deck the middle finger is Creeping Corrosion. The card rarely hurts you and gives them a hell of a time. Krosan Grip is a fantastic card that also helps in this situation. For these 3 excuses to shit on rocks, I'd at least take out Sundering Vitae and Natural End. Nullmage Shepherd is a fantastic elf to throw in your deck to solve this issue as well. Hum of the Radix is also a fun little card for artifact decks that no one will expect you to drop. If you need enchantment removal, just throw in Back to Nature and you'll be fine. If you're having a hard time with killing creatures, run Taunting Elf, or just run it anyways if you can regenerate it and hit people for free every turn. Aluren will help your elfball rolling, and running Primal Rage will help make sure that even when Ezuri is gone that you get your damage through. Talara's Battalion was a cool card I experimented with in my deck, and it did quite a bit of damage. I would definitely include Marwyn for her beefy presence and massive mana ramp. Something like Predator's Rapport is just not useful, as gaining life tends to be some of the most useless magic cards unless you're running a deck that focuses on it. Instead I would try to tutor for a card like Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen, Nissa Revane, Wellwisher, or Essence Warden which help a lot more with solving this problem. Triumph of the Hordes is a great meme to drop on your opponents in a tough situation, as it gives you a nice little one shot, or at least eats through indestructibly and "prevent all damage" creatures. Most of the artifacts you run arent necessary, so I would just replace them with lands. While you have an extremely low mana curve, 28 lands is very dangerous with no rocks. Unless you add some very fancy $$$ rocks (which if you dont wanna drop 1k on artifacts), I would just run some more forests. Primal Order was a neat card I haven't seen in a while, and I think that can prove very useful in your deck if you're having a hard time getting through to other opponents running decks with multiple colors. If you want to stick with the aggro theme, I would add a Coat of Arms, since by the time you hit turn five you'll have about 4-5 elves, and this can turn 7 damage into 50. The risk of helping your opponents is worth it. Selvala, Heart of the Wilds is actually insane in this deck, and if your opponent draws a card or two off of it, nobody is gonna care. She can give you a ridiculous amount of mana with Ezuri pumps and elves like Drove of Elves. Concordant Crossroads is an absolute necessity if your goal is aggro. This card hurts sometimes, especially if your opponent has a creature-heavy deck. The payoff is huge though when you drop mana dorks with haste or drop your hand on the field, tap your Priest of Titania for a crazy amount, and have Ezuri pummel everyone with your hasty elves. As for mana doublers, you can run whatever you'd like, although I would say you don't need any of them for the deck to work: they're just a waste of a turn. Over all the others, I would run Mana Reflection so that your elves can tap for double as well as anything else. Overall, this deck is pretty solid, and with a few tweaks it could be an unstoppable force! Let me know if you need any other suggestions on anything else (:

Hexbringer0 on Ezuri leader of the woodelves

For example....Cloudstone Curio and Dwynen's Elite= 2 mana per elf as much as you can....add in Aluren and it becomes infinite elves. Aluren is a huge risk card depending on your meta however, but i have never had another deck in my meta take better advantage of it then me in a game so idk...

Oh btw....if you do consider Cloudstone Curio you have to consider Aluren. So many combos....

Secret Salvage. I used that in my Relentless Rats deck -worked great with Aluren and Anger -but it should be decent in your deck, too.
