phycomizard ALSO I forgot about the end of your comment, sorry! The Hivelord, Constricting, Megantic and Homing Sliver all feel kind of unnecessary. They cost too much and are more of a flavor thing than anything else. Homing Sliver I actually almost put in, but didn't think it was worth the space. Not only do I have to pay 3CMC to play it on T2/T3, but I also have to pay whatever mana cost for the sliver I end up choosing as well. The only thing I saw it worthy of is some sort of thing like I use the slivercycle, find a Virulent Sliver and then either paying the mana cost before combat OR Aether Vial ing in the Virulent after going to combat, swinging (maybe with everything depending on board status for both myself and the opponent) with all my slivers and then doing poison counters like that for a potential (but unlikely) on T3 win, unless I have lke 2 or 3 Predatory Sliver s or Sinew Sliver s out to buff one another. PLUS at that point, if I'm going for an infect win I might as well add in buffs like Blossoming Defense or Distortion Strike or like Groundswell or something to buff them up, but for decks like Affinity I'm sure they'll have either answers or wouldn't let something just go unblocked if I have one or more Virulent Sliver s sitting on board.

Blossoming Defense is just better than Ranger's Guile . It's a strict upgrade!

Apollo_Paladin Blossoming Defense is not Standard legal. And yes, this is a Standard build. An almost-non-interactive deck as slow as this one would stand no chance in legacy, anyway.

The reason why the Simic duals and petitioners are marked as not legal in Standard is the same reason why they wouldn't be legal in legacy either: they haven't been released yet. Btw, thanks for trying to help, but I usually know what's legal in Standard and what's not.

  • First of all, this deck should not have the Standard tag as it includes numerous cards illegal in the format, so I'm going to assume you meant it as a Legacy build.
  • I feel that Blossoming Defense is superior in pretty much every way to Dive Down for its offensive capability.
  • Also, if indeed this is a Legacy build and not Standard, you could upgrade Root Snare to Fog and save 1 mana to obtain the same effect.

Here might be some additional cards you can consider using:

There are plenty of cards that are fun with Skullbriar. If you have trouble protecting him there are spells like, Vines of Vastwood or Blossoming Defense. Hope that helps!

9-lives on Anointed Procession Deck with Cats

2 weeks ago

I think my cats will be the ones giving me life needed for Ajani's Pridemate, as they have lifelink, but I could be wrong. I'll probably do as you say and get rid of one Heroes' Reunion and a few Gift of Strength and even a few of Blossoming Defense and play instead with Birds of Paradise and Lotus Cobra, rather than add more lands. I already have 7x Forest 8x Plains 4x Sunpetal Grove. Don't you think that's enough lands? 19 in total. With Birds of Paradise and Lotus Cobra, if I draw them, they would allow me to gain lands much faster. I would useAjani's Welcome but I don't know how many cat cards i'll be casting. Do you think I'll have more than 7 creatures on the battlefield on the fourth turn? The whole reason I'm thinking of using birds of paradise and lotus cobra is so that early in the game I'll be able to play Anointed Procession and eternalize Adorned Pouncer, play Leonin Warleader, as well as Regal Caracal. If I can't get enough cats early in the game, I'll be twiddling my thumbs until I get enough mana, as Regal Caracal and Leonin Warleader are two main cat givers, and Pride Sovereign would be pointless until the 4th turn if I don't have these mana rampers. If I draw Sacred Cat at any time in the game, the most I can have on the battlefield is 4 until I can mummify them, which is the whole point of Anointed Procession. Anointed Procession is the main card that this whole deck depends upon.
