Bane of Progress Discussion

WargRave on Lusus Naturae

Hi, nice deck! I like the theme. I've got a few suggestions, if they're not what you're looking for pay me no mind.

You mention a combo with Gutter Grime and Altar of Dementia, but Gutter Grime says nontoken. I don't know if you consider the combo critical to their inclusion since they both work fine alone though.

Baton of Morale is cute, but it seems worse than simple Whispersilk Cloak at giving Sidisi more attack triggers, and I don't see where it fits the flavor.

You've got Sultai Banner and no Commander's Sphere, so that's a fairly easy swap.

35 lands and average CMC 4 seems low, even counting the emerge effect. There are still more good budget lands available: Temple of the False God, Evolving Wilds/Terramorphic Expanse, (which are probably better than Foul Orchard, but I don't know if that's included for flavor) and Drownyard Temple which synergizes with self-mill and fits in Innistrad flavor too. There's hardly any ramp here, what about Rampant Growth, Cultivate, etc?

Draw looks really light too, especially for UBG. I don't know if you are bound to flavor to the point of rejecting good ol' Concentrate, but we can find some on theme things like Treasure Cruise that appreciate the milling. Ancient Craving at least sounds like eldritch horror, and Read the Bones, Night's Whisper, and Sign in Blood all sort of work too. Sift seems better than Amass the Components since you'd rather discard than put to bottom, though Sift has no flavor.

It's also light on artifact/enchantment removal to my eye. Reclamation Sage, Bane of Progress, and others fill this role while also being creatures to give Sidisi zombies.

As for what to take out that I haven't mentioned, what catches my eye as not pulling their weight are Altar of the Brood (without an infinite combo this will just help opponents), Enlightened Maniac (low impact, no graveyard synergy), Ludevic's Test Subject  Flip (slow), Geralf's Masterpiece, Momir Vig, Simic Visionary (not a huge number of triggers for him, the only other blue AND green creature is Sidisi), and Brood Monitor (Nice with blink effects but you haven't any).

NV_1980 they are all great suggestions, particularly Elemental Bond and Dragonlord Dromoka, but am gonna look into getting copies of all of them. Seer's Sundial is definitely coming out, as it hasn't proved too useful and having to pay 2 to draw a card is often not worth it. Bane of Progress has proven useful, particularly with Heroic Intervention and Avacyn, Angel of Hope, and Song of the Dryads has helped me to immobilise other commanders, particularly against decks with no enchantment removal. Thanks for the suggestions!

Nice deck djeffs93. Might I suggest Selvala, Heart of the Wilds; fits well with being able to summon big things quickly. Talking about big things, how about adding Worldspine Wurm or Dragonlord Dromoka? I think I'd add Elemental Bond as well.

Cards I'd remove would probably be Bane of Progress (I don't think you need this, you've got plenty of anti-artifact/enchantment without the need to nuke your own), Song of the Dryads (because you have plenty removal as it is) and Seer's Sundial (because I think elemental bond would do a better job).

TaladagaKnights on animar

Acidic Slime needs to be a Bane of Progress; Eternal Witness needs to be a Greenwarden of Murasa or Paleoloth; Savageborn Hydra should be a Primordial Hydra;

The following should be switched for better shit:

Apocalypse Hydra, Myr Battlesphere, possibly Omnath, Locus of Rage or Rampaging Baloths, Penumbra Wurm, possibly Purphoros, God of the Forge, possibly Skyline Despot (I know I suggested it but I still don't like it), Thought-Knot Seer because you only have four lands that will allow you to cast him

things to maybe put in:

Lurking Predators for like the third time, Greater Good

Ronnok01 on My Animar Deck

I am new to this site, but have played animar for a long time, and so this is mearly my opinion, but i would suggest cutting some mana dorks for some cheap blue creatures whose sole purpose is to put counters on animar: Dream Stalker, Man-o'-War and Shrieking Drake. These repeatedly put counters on animar by bouncing themselves to your hand immediatly. I would also recommend Peregrine Drake, not for combo, but for free land untapping. Lightning Greaves is also great as you play them, next turn play animar and instantly equip. I would also recommend utility lands such as Llanowar Reborn for instant counters. Also Gruul War Chant is better than Goblin War Drums, so run that instead. I will list off a few other suggestions, but I just like to run them personaly, so you choose: Mulldrifter, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Sylvan Library, Bane of Progress, Platinum Angel, Forgotten Ancient, Great Oak Guardian and Mystic Snake.

UnleashedHavok on The Braids of War!

Thanks for the kind words landofMordor! So after I said I was looking for two more sac outlets, I decided to put Carrion Feeder in to give a try, I am wanting to get my curve as low as possible so that the deck can pick up a little bit quicker. I'm going back and forth between Scarland Thrinax and Bloodflow Connoisseur. My struggle feels a little silly; I love the flavor text on the Thrinax and I like that he enters the field as a 2/2, but the Connoisseur feels like it may be a slightly easier cast since I only have to have two colorless and a Swamp. I'm thinking I may just buy both and try each out to see which fits better since they are cheap cards. I'm glad you like the Phytotitan choice so much! I really like it, and have wanted to make use of the card for a while but didn't see where he would be useful. Enter Kresh. I was play-testing yesterday and had a silly amount of counters on Kresh because I had Death's Presence, Kresh the Bloodbraided, Phytotitan, and Carrion Feeder on the board. It was glorious.

I'm not sure I agree with you on the Rakshasa Deathdealer being a weak point, I'll need you to clarify your logic on that one. I like the fact that I can pay his regenerate cost and sac him to feed Kresh just to do it again. I don't know, I may find in games that I want that mana for something else. We shall see. In playtesting, I was actually less pleased to see Reaper of the Wilds. Again, I may change my mind after playing some actual games. I don't plan on changing too much until after I have tried it out beyond taking out Fireshrieker for either a sac outlet, Mycoloth, or Sifter of Skulls. And Terastodon will be coming out for Bane of Progress, like I said in my previous comment.

Out of the counter synergy cards you suggested, I think I like the Ridgescale Tusker the best out of the budget choices. I really.... really.... like Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, but then I am a big fan of repeatable stuff in my EDH decks. I may end up caving and purchasing a copy of her, it depends on when she rotates out of standard. I could not find a date on that.

Oh yeah, I was really curious what your thoughts are on Kumano, Master Yamabushi, Ulvenwald Tracker, and Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet. I'm not sure how I feel about the Tracker, 1/1 creatures always feel so fragile to me. Especially in a world where you have Atraxa and people that run Contagion Engine..... I hate the Engine. Especially when playing my Alesha, Who Smiles at Death deck.

No worries on your response time! I have entirely too much time on my hands man. I got out of the Army last year and right now I am just going to school two days out of the week and interning at a chiropractor's office 3 hours a night 3 days a week. Idle hands are the devil's playground and all that ya know.
