Boon Satyr Discussion

ComeHonorChest on Selesnya Aggro

demonicgrizzly I have the nykthos in the deck because I believe its a good land card to have in a lot of decks. I do understand that it doesn't really fit into the theme of the deck.

I dont want to have too many 1 drops in the deck because the decks strong mana curve is 2 and 3 which is pretty low compared to some other decks. Even with Experiment One, I would like to pump him up with more efficient creatures such as Fleecemane Lion and Loxodon Smiter. Do you think Unflinching Courage is good as is or are there better options like Boon Satyr or other enchant creatures? Do you think that Loxodon Hierarch is good for the deck?

Hey, demonicgrizzly! Nice deck and thanks for the suggestions. The Boon Satyrs are an interesting/cool touch.

I had originally started with 4x Rancor instead of the Vines of Vastwoods but there was too much targeted removal in my meta and I kept getting 2 for 1d with it and thus made the switch to vines. Also, I am trying to keep my creature count to 28 for as strong of a chance for Collected Company to hit as possible, so my only flex slots for non-creature spells are those 4. Rancor might come back in one of these days but at the moment I am going with the Vines.

I had Feed the Clan in the side for a while but the only times I used it against burn I it was never enough and I wished that I was increasing my board state as well, thus the change to Kitchen Finks (which I am currently running the sideboard, I just haven't updated it too recently :P ).

Surgical Extraction is an interesting card. I'm not sure that I have enough combo decks in my meta at the moment to justify it but that would be one of the better choices if they become more prevalent.

Thanks for the suggestions and keep stomping!

I really like it and I remember a standard combo you could try. Boon Satyr could be replaced with Deathmist Raptor so your den protector can pick up 2 for one. You could also try and replace Polukranos, World Eater and Ashcloud Phoenix with one copy of Dragonlord Atarka and a playset of Thunderbreak Regent. This will give you more power on the board and a bigger reason to run Sarkhan Unbroken over Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker. I bought a Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker and he absolutely is trash. I would run one copy of Sarkhan Unbroken and 2 copies of Domri Rade and replace your Chandra, Pyromaster with two lands, maybe Shivan Reef for example. One last change you could make, which is not NECESSARY but could be a decent addition is using Atarka's Command or Collective Defiance instead of Roast for the additional value they provide later in the game. I know this sounds like a lot of changes but trust me, your deck will be amazing if you try them. If your reluctant to buy some of the cards at first make some cheap paper proxies off of websites like bluebones to try them out and buy them only if you think they are beneficial changes. Good luck FangorHelmsar!

Well, Considering a sixth of your deck enables ferocious, and there are more ferocious creatures you can put in as well, Stubborn Denial does much better on average. Early game, before you have a ferocious creature, it's unlikely they'll have a mana up to save their spell and later in the game, it's a discount negate. Also, a super fun interaction is play stubborn denial and with it on the stack, flash in Boon Satyr so ferocious will be active when denial resolves. This combo becomes a better Mystic Snake.

I like the idea of it but you should put in Primeval Titan so you can get the shrine more easily instead of trying to get it by drawing.

Take out the Eidolon of Blossoms and the Boon Satyr. You aren't playing enough enchantments often enough to make the Eidolon of Blossoms worth wile for you to play and the Boon Satyr is a cool card but not worth your time. Try to find more one drops, you want to be playing cards your first turn and they build up devotion quickly.

Also keep in mind by playing Courser of Kruphix your opponent gets to see the top card of your library as well meaning after you play it you will not have any secrets so they will know you don't have responses to certain plays. It is a nice card when your trying to find lands but after a couple of turns it starts to hurt you.

With any devotion deck you often find yourself with a lot of mana and nothing to use it on. And because you have so many creatures as part of the combo I recommend putting in a couple of cards that makes it easier for you to get them. Something like Tooth and Nail or maybe Fauna Shaman if your willing to let some cards go.

I would put one more Temur Ascendancy in if its part of your combo. The nice part of Primeval Titan is you can grab those other lands that you need to cast it.

Just so your aware the entire combo has to net at least 7 green mana everytime you do it. The combo itself costs 6. 2 for the Temur Sabertooth, 2 to recast Voyaging Satyr, to retap Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. That is a pretty steep cost but I like it.

There are one or two cards I would recommended and once you look at them I think you'll like it. First Birds of Paradise for the reason it gets you any color, which is what you want, for one drop. Second Khalni Hydra looks really steep at first but then you realize you get to cast it for maybe 4 or 5 mana later in the game and it added 8 devotion so it helps you get to that minimum number to do the combo. Summoner's Pact is nice if your trying to get those last couple of pieces your looking for and don't have that mana for everything right this second. Eternal Witness is nice if you are worried about one or two of your pieces ending up in the graveyard or it can be there for you to grab something else that you liked. It adds two to devotion and it's a 2/1 body which is nice. Omnath, Locus of Mana is an extra way to store the left over mana you have every turn so that you can cast something big early. I might recommend Garruk Wildspeaker because you can use him to untap two lands one which can be Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx however it can only do it once and might not work super well with your deck you have here. Let me know if you have any questions :)

Epochalyptik on Eidolon of Countless Battles

5 months ago

Most creatures with bestow (e.g., Boon Satyr) say "Enchanted creature gets ___." Note that creatures with bestow that convey a static buff, such as +2/+2, typically confer a buff equal to their own power and toughness.

Eidolon of Countless Battles and Nighthowler are formatted differently because they both have scaling P/T values. Rather than write one characteristic-defining ability or one instance of a scaling static ability for the creature and one more for the enchanted creature, the wording is combined. This has no functional effect on the way the cards operate.

Abilities that are worded "~ or enchanted creature" are typically triggered abilities, in which case only one of those objects needs to do something to trigger the ability. Take, for example, Spiteful Returned. Its ability says "or" because only the enchanted creature or only Spiteful Returned will be attacking. Auras don't attack, so having the phrase "whenever ~ and enchanted creature attack" would result in an ability that doesn't trigger.

tl;dr: The abilities are functionally identical to those on other creatures with bestow, even though they're formatted a little differently.

Izu_Korasu on yes, this is a voltron badger deck

Badger Badger Giant Badger Badger Charging Badger mushroom. +1

now to the deck...

Forced Adaptation seems waaay too slow, and despite seeing a devotion themed route, your devotion seems limited (most of your permanents only have G). How often does Nykthos become profitable/Aspect of Hydra pump for more then Giant Growth?

Boon Satyr and Briarhorn can serve a dual role here, and the flash and extra benefits are relevant (being both creatures/voltron buffs). and Unyaro Bees is both a mana sink, a huge boost to devotion and a nice evasive target for the enchantments. Garruk's Companion could be another badger for the deck.

additional voltron elements include Shield of the Oversoul, but the majority of the other targets vary depending on your opponent (regen, hexproof etc)

sideboard tech could include Raking Canopy to counter fliers and add devotion.

Have you ever thought of Abundant Growth. I like this for the cantrip and drawing two cards with Venduran Enchantress and the like.Also Courser of Kruphix is a decent enchantment creature body that gives card advantage, and Boon Satyr can be a useful card against higher toughness aggro creatures. I don't know how well Karametra, God of Harvests would work but if it's a guaranteed creature then it might be a good add.
