Ancient Stirrings


Look at the top five cards of your library. You may reveal a colorless card from among them and put it into your hand. Then put the rest on the bottom of your library in any order. (Cards with no colored mana in their mana costs are colorless. Lands are also colorless.)

Most of the Eldrazi Temples have some wear on their edges. Elder Deep-Fiend and Thought-Knot Seer are foreign. I don't have the Ancient Stirrings anymore.

If you're adding green Ancient Stirrings can help you get either lands or Eldrazi into your hand

Zaueski on Why do you play Green?

I don't. The only time I'll play a card is when WotC goofed and made a , , or card have the wrong border. There's one green card in all of my current decks that doesn't follow that rule and I only play it out of absolute necessity.

Ancient Stirrings should've have had Devoid or been and I will fight whoever disagrees.

Violent Outburst isn't really Violent Outburst, it's Living End which is thoroughly . I never cast Outburst to get the anthem.

Gnaw to the Bone is a necessary evil. As soon as there's a better Burn/Valakut/Storm/etc hoser, I'll take it.

not enough colorless cards for Ancient Stirrings to be effectively useful

I've tried the Ancient Stirrings route and really didn't enjoy it to much, but maybe I didn't give it a fair go. The problem with Traverse the Ulvenwald is that I find it sometime hard to have enough cards in my graveyard for Delirium, but it is also a fix for mana if need be as the deck only runs 20. I've also ran 1-of Plains but taken it out. I found myself having it in my opening hand to often and there are only 4 cards that need it pre-sideboard. Leaving me unable to cast much as if I had a forest I could cast all important spells that I need to be casting on turn one.

Scavenging Ooze is just really good in the current meta game examples being against Storm, Grixis Death Shadow, Burn, and Dredge. Not to mention that one mana could result into multiple +1/+1 counters at instant speed.

Yo! I just ordered a bunch of cards for a similar list. I have a deck on here and I'm going to be trying Ancient Stirrings over Traverse the Ulvenwald. There's been talk of trying the artifact creature version of this deck as a more control/disruption-oriented midrange deck so you have time to get your scale effects down, gonna mess around with that idea for a while. Upsides to stirrings: strong early game, can help you filter into an early Pendelhaven or 1-of Metallic Mimic / Basilisk Collar, and good with sideboard cards like Nihil Spellbomb, Spellskite, and Flaying Tendrils. I want to know if I can up removal and cut creatures. Scooze is good but I want robots. I'll have the cards in a week and I plan on competing regularly so I'll get back to you on what I come up with :) . It seems like a 1-of Plains might be worthwhile with Traverse the Ulvenwald

hi, i think Leyline of Sanctity won't help against an All Is Dust, cause it doesn't target a player, it's "all players". I thought off playing colorless tron, but i don't have good sideboard choices therefore and only one copy of Karn Liberated, also green eldrazi tron might be more consistent then playing colorless, even because you have access to World Breaker and Ancient Stirrings. But as i said, i think i don't have enough options to build a tron deck ;-)

Card:Ceremonious Rejection sounds like a great idea, but i don't know what i should replace therefore. Also i had to add one or two copies of Breeding Pool and Misty Rainforest. I'm really not sure if this will hinder my gameplan.

If I'm understanding correctly, this is going to be a pauper Tron list with the subtheme of graveyard manipulation? Definitely have some pointers, in which case.

I would trim down to three colors at most, since the Tron lands only produce colorless mana, and getting mana fixing on top of that seems a little difficult. Still, I think you can get away with Golgari-only (Black-Green). Don't worry about mana for the Dragon enchantments; you'll be wanting to discard/mill those to the yard, and then return them for free off of big Eldrazi.

Definitely flesh out the playsets of Expedition Map, Ulamog's Crusher, and I'd also get Ancient Stirrings; great 1-drop in your colors, and pauper-legal.

Maul Splicer is another classic green Tron pauper drop; it doesn't synergise well with the Dragon enchantments, should you choose to go down that route, but it still might be worth it.

Happy brewing!
