Angrath's Marauders Discussion
1 month ago
Huh. I hadn't though about Willbreaker and I think I have a copy. Will swap that in. I am of two minds about putting in Curiosity/Ophidian Eye, because a) I'm casual and try to avoid (semi-)infinite combos and even if I can run through my deck, it probably won't be enough to ping everyone to 0, even if I have Angrath's Marauders doubling everything.

I want to build a fun deck for my casual 3-4 man play group.
I'm new to MTG so it's a huge time consuming to search for the cards I want (dont get me wrong, it's fun but too much time consuming).
I'm looking for cards that ping damage my opponents and punish them. Cards like Harsh Mentor, Goblin Chainwhirler, Guttersnipe, Metzali, Tower of Triumph. Double damage cards like Insult // Injury and Angrath's Marauders some Planeswalker Chandra cards, but also fun cards like Axis of Mortality for politics, and Fight to the Death, Deflecting Palm to catch my opponents off guard.

Another category of card that leaps to mind is cards with replicate, sure Shattering Spree is out of the question but how about Train of Thought or Pyromatics or the big kahuna Djinn Illuminatus making for that sweet sweet value with all those pings, then there is Embermaw Hellion which i know doesnt have flying so it's subject to the twins but turns all those pings into shocks, for straight boardwiping value. and to top it all off there is always damage doublers that can be used as either finishers or improv board wipes such as Insult // Injury or, sigh, Angrath's Marauders

You're missing the strongest green wincons for Brudiclad or Riku: Pathbreaker Ibex and Biovisionary. Combat Celebrant also gives infinite combats and infinite damage with Brudiclad. Angrath's Marauders is also great in multiples since the damage doubles then doubles again. Bramble Sovereign is great for making tokens in addition to Riku's trigger. Panharmonicon gives extra triggers from Riku or the stuff you copy.
You also need more stuff to make tokens early on, especially creatures you can copy with Riku, like Young Pyromancer, Master of Waves, and Hanweir Garrison. Sorceries also work since Riku can copy them, so stuff like Hordeling Outburst, Tempt with Vengeance, Sylvan Offering.

Hey Daedalus19876, I'm not sure if the extra combat creatures like Combat Celebrant and Lightning Runner will work well because they are small so most of them will die after one combat. Scourge of the Throne is tricky to use as well because to get the extra combats you have to attack with one the first combat, then the first one and another one the next combat, then the first two and another one and so on. Jace, Cunning Castaway doesn't work with Brudiclad because the tokens that get turned into Jace have 0 loyalty counters and die immediately.
You should try the payoff creatures in my Brudiclad deck like Angrath's Marauders and Borderland Behemoth, since they can win in a single combat with ridiculous amounts of damage. Stalking Vengeance is also good if you can boardwipe right away. Coat of Arms is also good because it turns even small tokens into big ones.
I would also suggest Windreader Sphinx over Consecrated Sphinx since you get to draw cards without waiting for opponents to draw, and you draw more cards with Windreader than Consecrated (6 Windreaders draw 36 cards right away whereas 6 Consecrated will draw 12 cards when your opponent draws next turn).

So a couple of great wincons you could consider are Angrath's Marauders, Borderland Behemoth, Omnath, Locus of Rage, and Stalking Vengeance. You probably don't need Emmara since your creatures will get big, especially by the time you are playing a 7 drop.
Panharmonicon could help you get more triggers out of Bramble Sovereign, Dual Nature, Flameshadow Conjuring, and Minion Reflector, which can be great if you don't have Brudiclad. You could also add Parallel Lives.
Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker is great for copying a creature and making a hasty token.
Mana Echoes is amazing for mana in a token deck. Are you getting good value out of the creature type changing enchantments? If not, Sliver Queen as commander can make more tokens, and also goes infinite with Mana Echoes.

Thanks everyone for the comments! Individual replies below.
BolasFucks: Phyrexian Processor certainly can make a big token, but the life cost is risky and the tokens don't trample. Angrath's Marauders and Borderland Behemoth can frequently deal more than 40 damage for each token without having to pay life. Mechanized Production is a good alternate wincon and also a way to copy an artifact, but currently most of the things in this deck worth copying are nonartifact, and it needs to last through all my opponents' turns before I can win with eight artifacts of the same name.
Ben773: The myriad cards are decent but not the most powerful things to be doing. Crush of Tentacles removes all the tokens we have already made. Precursor Golem tokens are vulnerable to spot removal on the original. Gold-Forge Garrison 4/4 is not worth it. Copying the 5/1 tokens from Rite of the Raging Storm means they all get sacrificed at end of turn. Metallurgic Summonings is already in the deck. Infinite Reflection costs a lot of mana and only affects nontoken creatures. Mirror Mockery tokens can't be copied since they only appear after Brudiclad's trigger is over. Flameshadow Conjuring is a card I quite like from my other decks and might try out in this. Inferno Titan dealing 3 additional damage per token is quite little. I'm trying to include a few more card advantage options. I do have Pact of Negation and Spell Swindle as counters. I might also include Force of Will and Swan Song as low mana cost options.

It's a little expensive but Primal Amulet Flip could be an interesting addition here. Maybe in place of the Angrath's Marauders or the Baral, Chief of Compliance - its first state mirrors Baral, Chief of Compliance and it's second state mirrors the effect of Angrath's Marauders if you've got Guttersnipe up.
