Boar Umbra Discussion

Pal00ka on LAND HO!

Why Arbor Elf? You have no "special" forests nor enchantments to boost mana in which to untap for extra gain. The mana dorks (and rocks) in general (except Smokebraider) seem odd additions due to Omnath wanting you to drop lands. Why not more instants/sorceries to put lands on the field? Early game they'll get you to Omnath faster and late game they make elementals. Mana dorks may accelerate in beginning but can get wiped away and are subpar late.

Pandemonium, Where Ancients Tread, and Warstorm Surge were favorites of mine in Omnath.

I'd highly suggest more protection for Omnath because he's a magnet for removal. Swiftfoot Boots, Darksteel Plate, Bear Umbra, Boar Umbra, Snake Umbra, Spider Umbra, Archetype of Endurance, Wrap in Vigor, or Resuscitate all help him stick around longer.

In my build I was all in on making tokens with him. 1/5 of the deck was ramp spells alone. Two of the few elementals I included was Obsidian Fireheart (his burn ability doesn't go away even if he does) and Liege of the Tangle (we're already going to have lots of lands so might as well let them smash face too).

Haste for your elementals to immediately hit is wise too (get some value now in case a wipe is coming). Fervor, Hammer of Purphoros (good w Titania too), Fires of Yavimaya, Concordant Crossroads or Mass Hysteria fit the bill.

Trample too so your 5/5s are just getting chumped by 0/1s: Nylea, God of the Hunt, Primal Rage, Thunderfoot Baloth and Overrun/Overwhelming Stampede fit the bill.

Hope something helped!

The umbra cards are fantastic for sigarda. She is already really hard to take out with hexproof and anti-sacrifice, making boardwipes and blocking the only way to take her out. Totem armor gives her pseudo-indestructible which makes her a serious pain to deal with, and aside from Descend upon the Sinful and Final Judgement there isn't really a way to remove her at that point

Some good ones to consider are Bear Umbra, Hyena Umbra, Snake Umbra, and Boar Umbra to name a few. There may be some you prefer to those, but those are off the top of my head

Thanks for the comment. I'll add those to the maybeboard. Also, about my friend's goblin deck - Lightmine Field is an interesting option, but simply having a hexproof first striker that's slightly beefed up is enough to stop him from attacking. The real problems are Gempalm Incinerator and Goblin War Strike. (That's also why I have some creatures giving me hexproof in the maybeboard.)

I'm probably gonna end up adding Adorned Pouncer. I playtested it a bit and most of my creatures end up 3/3s or 4/4ish. I need a better way to beef up my creatures, possibly Boar Umbra, Increasing Savagery, etc.

Angelic Destiny might be useful. Holy Mantle, Spirit Mantle, and Unquestioned Authority can give her pro-creatures. You also might want to consider more umbras (for totem armor): Boar Umbra and Mammoth Umbra both have effects that would be pretty good, Eland Umbra, Felidar Umbra, Indrik Umbra, Snake Umbra, and Spider Umbra have less good effects, but do include the board wipe protection. Replenish and Retether help bring enchants back from grave right on Sigarda. Also, what voltron deck would be good without Fireshrieker? Other suggestions: Herald of the Pantheon, Silverblade Paladin, Divine Reckoning, and Sphere of Safety.

Neotrup on does the Deathtouch work here?

8 months ago

Protection form any of the creature's attributes (such as simply protection from creatures found on Beloved Chaplain) will prevent deathtouch damage, as can other damage prevention (like Ethereal Haze), unless damage can't be prevented (such as due to a Leyline of Punishment). Regeneration (like Regeneration), Totem Armor (like Boar Umbra), Indestructible (like Indestructibility) and similar can all save the creature, and don't need to prevent the damage to do so.

But yes, any damage dealt by a creature with deathtouch, including Nature's Way, fighting (like Prey Upon), and giving deathtouch (with something like Basilisk Collar) to Prodigal Pyromancer) will apply the lethal effect.

As an odd rules quirk , if a source with deathtouch deals damage to an indestructible creature that then loses indestructible (perhaps due to Bonds of Mortality) it will forget that the deathtouch made it lethal, but remember the amount of damage for if it's dealt a lethal amount.

704.5h If a creature has toughness greater than 0, and its been dealt damage by a source with deathtouch since the last time state-based actions were checked, that creature is destroyed. Regeneration can replace this event.
