Avenger of Zendikar Discussion

LandoLRodriguez on Windy Kitty's Landfall Engine

forneyt I hadn't considered Doubling Season for this deck, but I do see how useful it could by. By my count, 18 cards (including Nesting Dragon) would benefit from its effects... Omnath pumps out an army of 5/5s, Avenger of Zendikar becomes an absolute nightmare, and being able to emblem either of the planeswalkers included on the turn that they enter would be fantastic. It's an expensive card though, perhaps if ultimate masters is kind to me I'll come across one. I'm not so sure I'd take Nesting Dragon's slot with it though. Part of me wouldn't be very happy taking out a card that would benefit from the one which I'm putting in. Making dragon eggs isn't the most exciting or aggressive thing to be doing, but I never mind having a plethora of chump blockers, especially ones that call in a wave of better creatures in the event of a board wipe.I'm actually thinking I might take out Akoum Hellkite. I wanted a creature that gives me direct damage for landfall triggers, but with only 5 mountains I fear I might not get the most out of it.

 Farmert3d I don't quite follow what you meant there.

@Optimator, Yeah I guess I just wondered why Hornet Queen specifically was the 7cmc creature chosen for the deck ... over other options that seem like they could have some advantages/disadvantages and are also within the same budget range like: Avenger of Zendikar, Elderscale Wurm, or Regal Force.

The avenger seems like it has more variance but could yield way more bodies than the queen can. The wurm seems like it could be a great include against certain combos since you could potentially get that in play to save you the turn an opponent is going off (depending on the combo, of course). Regal force has seen some play in Legacy elves/nic fit over the years, and seems like it could potentially fight for the verse 7 spot too depending on if you need the cards or not before getting to the verse 8 activation.

Since I don't have any cEDH experience yet, I don't know if that's a meta call or if Hornet Queen is the objectively best 7cmc creature to run, so my inquiry was mostly just curiosity based on that.

Oh, there is no Avenger of Zendikar. My bad.

Just curious why you chose Hornet Queen over other things like Elderscale Wurm or Regal Force or Avenger of Zendikar. They each seem to have different advantages/disadvantages. Just curious what your reasoning was since they're all budget options for 7 verses.

Both queen and avenger add loads of bodies right before the verse 8 craterhoof. The queen gives a reliable number of [good] surprise chump blockers if that is needed where avenger only gives a variable amount of [bad] chump blockers. Hornet Queen and her tokens have deathtouch which works well with the trample from craterhoof, but I haven't played enough to know if that matters all that much in most cEDH pods or if you potentially just want more bodies, which avenger may give you. Regal could get you loads of cards, which may provide answers (instant speed removal). Elderscale seems like it could be good in certain combo metas if the opponent doesn't have a way to deal with it on the turn they're going off.

Anyway, just curious as to why hornet queen was the preferred 7 drop for you / if it was a meta call or just that Hornet Queen is the universal best 7cmc target in Yisan.

if you want a mill win con can I suggest the one I have with my Meren deck. It consists of the combo of Avenger of Zendikar + Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest + Altar of Dementia. If you want you can even add in Mikaeus, the Unhallowed for the first sac of avenger to get double the tokens! If done right this combo can easily mill ay least one opponent before adding in a card like Living Death or Rise of the Dark Realms

multimedia on Emmara Convoke/Token Commander Deck

Hey, looks really good for a first Commander deck even though you used another deck as inspiration that's fine, you've still made it your own.

I suggest including more low mana cost cards that can interact with Emmara, giving you more opportunity to tap her to make a token as well as use her as mana ramp.

Budget cards to consider:

Other budget cards to consider:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Perilous Forays
  • Pollenbright Wings

Thank you for this response everyone !

Ouroboros_47 I tried to make a selections of cards that have another purpose than just put things into graveyard. This is the reason why i cut Stitcher's Supplier or Corpse Connoisseur. Delirium Skeins and Zombie Infestation seems good but I don't know if I want to throw a half or a third of my hand to fill up my graveyard. I will consider Smallpox and Darkblast. I think Darkblast can easily fill up the graveyard.

bushido_man96 I like your vision of the deck. If Izoni was Sultai... It would be so powerfull. Anyway... I like the idea of trigger multiple times her ability. Conjurer's Closet seems to be a great addition to the deck. It synergizes with all the ETB ability. Same with Temur Sabertooth(triggers Avenger of Zendikar, Fleshbag Marauder effects, Wood Elves effects). And what do you think about Panharmonicon ? And think Tortured Existence and Phyrexian Reclamation can be better engine recursion than "one shot" recursions like Animate Dead or Eternal Witness. And the deck will be more polyvalent.

Quicksilver Yes, thank you i forgot Altar of Dementia, thank you ;)

So what do you think about this cuts ?

Skullwinder > Tortured Existence

Doom Whisperer > Conjurer's Closet

Ashnod's Altar > Altar of Dementia

Deadbridge Chant > Temur Sabertooth

Jarad's Orders > Panharmonicon

I want add Elvish Piper and Erratic Portal but i don't know what to cut ...

Hello everyone !

Here is my Izoni deck list and i need some help. I want to build the deck on a budget (no more than 5/7 dollars /cards) I already have some "expensive" cards: Life from the Loam and i will invest in a Craterhoof Behemoth. For the rest of the deck, i want to stay budget.

I did a few test and it's not so simple to fill up the graveyard with creature. So I run creatures able to sacrifice themselves like Sakura-Tribe Elder, Plaguecrafter.

The deck wins with Avenger of Zendikar, Living Death, and some aristocrats effect in play or sacrifice enablers.

I need some help to perfect the deck give me some advices, maybe some cuts to do ? I take it all !
