Boar Umbra Discussion

Araignee on God ham-it!

I was wondering: if you cast Boar Umbra on Gristleback, can you choose to sacrifice him to gain 5-6 life (depending on if he had the bloodthirst counter or not? Because "destroyed" does not mean "sacrifice"?

Cards you could look at;

Boar Umbra , Spider Umbra , Inkmoth Nexus , pump spells in general like Larger Than Life , Duress , some form of removal like Walk the Plank

From the games I've played with Infect I can tell you that you will usually win/lose before getting 5+ mana out(unless you go the route of heavy control/discard), so I wouldn't run as many mana heavy creatures as you're currently running.

Considerations: Outland Boar, Boar Umbra, Boartusk Liege, Stoneforge Masterwork, also maybe Reins of the Vinesteed though it's kind of slow, maybe just Rancor.

i'd swap Boar Umbra for Bear Umbra, because then you can untap all lands whenever your commander attacks, allowing you to play more in your post combat phase.

Boar Umbra or Giant Growth to beef up your creatures or tokens. Iname, Life Aspect to liberate Spirit creatures from the graveyard

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!

Qolorful on Sigarda, Host of Herons EDH

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.
