Bladed Pinions Discussion

Optimator on Zagras and the Dethtouch Party

Your list is coming together. Personally, I feel like you need a few more lands. Your ramp is good, but not good enough to drop below the 35-38 land recommendation.

One thing that might be fun is to work in more creatures with First Strike to take even more advantage of the mass Deathtouch. Not a ton of good creatures (i.e. efficient Rares) in these colors that are also Party Members but there are some. Perhaps two or three things like Bladed Pinions, Sword of Vengeance, and Chariot of Victory? Chariot is perticularly good since the Trample means you can assign one damage to the blocker and the rest tramples over.

Love this deck! Loxodon Warhammer, Shadowspear, and O-Naginata for some trample might help on the punch through. Bladed Pinions just make Gwyn stupid hard to block, and Golem-Skin Gauntlets make her hit even harder. Keep it up!

Playing Yuriko myself if I'm trying some interesting effects to exploit a strange mechanic like Ninjutsu. I strongly suggest you to try playing some first strike enablers (there's not a ton in UB, but nevermind) like Bladed Pinions .

Figure this: first striking ninja attacking, dealing damage triggers Yuriko, then Ninjutsu in another ninja to get another trigger during the normal damage step.

Maybe it's a bit too cute, but I think building double strike in UB is worth a shot!

Cards that I would cut:

Regeneration , Executioner's Hood , Natural End , Bladed Pinions , Revive , Nature's Spiral , Staff of the Wild Magus , Crashing Footfalls awesome if you can cheat the suspend on it, not worth it otherwise, Prodigious Growth , Feasting Troll King and Trail of Crumbs you lack enough of a food theme to run these well enough to include, Moldgraf Monstrosity the random return makes this lackluster, Jaddi Lifestrider , Soul of Zendikar the activation is kind of expensive, Tuinvale Treefolk doesn't do enough to warrant inclusion, Canopy Cover and Web auras not the best here, I'd cut one of Planewide Celebration or Once and Future , and finally, Sandsteppe Mastodon

If you own one, I'd sub out Wall of Blossoms for Elvish Visionary for the synergy with Elvish Archdruid .

No Sol Ring ? This a ban in local meta?

If you happen to own them, some cards that you may want to think about: Tendershoot Dryad , Beast Within , Inspiring Call and Garruk, Primal Hunter . Yes, that means more cutting but they should be worth it in this deck.

I'd also add a Rogue's Passage in place of one Forest , just for some added punchthrough that is hard to remove.

I'd recommend playing a little faster with Thromak. I just recently built a deck around him too (The Very Hungry Caterpillar (Sub $25)), and I use a lot of quick creatures, as you at minimum need to get five creatures to get him to 25, which does commander damage. cards like Genesis Chamber , Fireshrieker , Forebear's Blade , Bladed Pinions , Goblin War Party , most walls/defenders, as they stay alive and keep damage off you, such as Wall of Earth , as well as Abzan Beastmaster for more card draws, Skyscanner to get a draw and an extra creature, Iron Myr and Copper Myr and such for mana fixing, as Vivid Grove and Vivid Crag for being low price multicolor land alternatives

Deathtouch works wonderfully together with trample (you only need to asign 1 point of damage to the defender and trample the rest), so cards like Overrun would be a nice finisher in the deck. Revenge of the Hunted is a nice alternative/redundancy to Destined / Lead

Frist strike and deathtouch is also a broken combination: Glissa, the Traitor is absolutely badass because he already has the combo on herself and her triggered will help you retrieve some of your important artifacts. Equipments that give you first strike are also a good choice Chariot of Victory , Bladed Pinions , Sword of Vengeance ...

Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and Pharika, God of Affliction create more deathtouchers. Hapatra may need some help to get through, but Pharika is pretty good on her own, your deck already has a lot of creatures, and it can be used also as graveyard hate if needed.

Acidic Slime , Liliana's Reaver , Gifted Aetherborn , Gonti, Lord of Luxury , Skullwinder , Vengeful Pharaoh and The Gitrog Monster are some other of my favourite deathtouchers.

I'm thinking about Bladed Pinions just in case i need to manage some flying, as it also gives first strike to defend again any death touch as well.
