Bloodspore Thrinax Discussion

This looks like a fine deck, though maybe it could use some more card-draw. Personally, I would go for Cold-Eyed Selkie, Bident of Thassa or Rhystic Study. In terms of nice counter-adding cards, you could look into Master Biomancer or even Bloodspore Thrinax. Naturally, Doubling Season could greatly enhance your deck, but this requires quite an investment.

In case you need any more ideas, I am using a counter deck myself: Got them countered. Look into it if you like (and leave a comment/like if you want to). Cheers!

I have a similar it is super fun to pilot

I think Bloodspore Thrinax is a must for this deck also Mitotic Slime is sneaky good.

For fixing I'd use Yavimaya Elder Primal Druid Viridian Emissary

Fresh Meat can be very fun to replace all the creatures you devoured.

How's it going, man? I am also fairly new to this site. Just finished uploading the last of my personal decks. I am a long time player of mtg however, and come here with 15+ years experience under my belt.

At first glance, I see two main issues. One is that you don't have enough draw power, and the second is that you literally have zero ways to protect your creatures. Here are the changes I would suggest:

-3 Abundance (Too mana intensive and does NOT count as card draw)

-3 Burgeoning (Doesn't flow well with the deck, imo)

-1 Hardened Scales (Only gives +1 counter/trigger)

-3 Spreading Seas (NO reason whatsoever for this to be in the deck, imo)

-2 Spellbook (Not enough constant draw to warrant)

-2 Venser's Journal (Not enough constant draw to warrant)

-2 Bloodspore Thrinax (Doesn't fit into the theme well enough)

-3 Champion of Lambholt (Costs too much mana, doesn't fit the theme)

-2 Island (New mana curve is not high enough to warrant 22 lands, imo)

+2 Horizon Chimera (Fits the theme, gives protection from flying threats)

+3 Betrayal

+4 Fate Transfer (Nice "Oh shit" card if creature is about to die, also synergizes with Hardened Scales.)

+4 Cartouche of Knowledge (Fits the theme, added evasion offers a win con)

+4 Mizzium Skin (A must-have source of protection)

+2 Lorescale Coatl

+2 Zameck Guildmage

Overall these changes would add a bit more consistency to the deck by increasing your # of playsets. It would increase the amount of protection you have from "kill cards", since you were previously at zero. And I beleive at the end of the day it would increase your card draw, (fitting the theme of the deck). I hope these suggestions help, let me know what you think!

Would Bloodspore Thrinax strike your fancy? Makes for some tough critters on your side :) Personally I love using Buried Alive. Combined with Meren, it's an incredibly cheap tutor, just watch out for graveyard hate :)

In case you're interested in some more ideas on what to use with Meren, feel free to check out my Meren deck (and please leave some comments, would appreciate it!).

Hi loclif,

Your deck contains several cards that generate tokens. I think your deck would fare better if you'd remove those and instead invest more into getting creatures that either generate counters or benefit greatly from them. There are several budget and non-budget ways of doing this. Here's some of the budget ways (they're not Hydra-themed, but suit your strategy very well):





  • Elemental Bond: because basically every creature you cast, is strong enough to allow you to draw a card.
  • Death's Presence: one monster's death, is another's power.
  • Hardened Scales: add a counter for whenever counters are added :)
  • Bow of Nylea: gives a whole host of options, one of which is adding +1/+1's.

Some less-budget (more expensive) options, would be:

Sorry for the long post. Hope you find some of this to be useful. Happy gaming!

So I run something really similar in my BG counter deck, and trust me when I say you could benefit a lot from Phyrexian Plaguelord and Yahenni, Undying Partisan. They're both pretty strong free sac outlets.

Also, Death's Presence and Bloodspore Thrinax should be included, especially if you're running a lot of persist stuff.

If you're looking for good sac effects, I highly suggest getting Blood Artist, and Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest. Both can put in tons of work into the deck.

Veteran Explorer. That's one of the best ramp pieces a sac deck can have.

Oohhh see I like using the Puppeteer Clique+Grave Pact type shenanigans in my Meren of Clan Nel Toth deck. Although I using either Bloodspore Thrinax, or stacking the triggers so that it would enter prior to the effect of Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest or Death's Presence occurring, so I can basically add counters caused by its death onto it.

Sorry about double post. How about considering: Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest - combo potential, Mentor of the Meek - good draw, Aura Shards - blow up things, Bloodspore Thrinax - combo potential, and Sidisi, Undead Vizier - tutor on a stick.
