Call the Scions Discussion

TheVectornaut on Green Monster Kill low costing

Like many green decks I see, this one has the problem of being pulled in too many different directions. Cards like Garruk's Companion, Rancor, and Leatherback Baloth hint at a very aggressive stompy strategy. Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, Essence Warden and the Wild Beastmaster + Elder of Laurels combo would be better in a dedicated go-wide token deck. Llanowar Elves, Wild Growth, Primeval Titan, and Elderscale Wurm fit better in pure ramp. I would dedicate more resources to a single one of these strategies, maybe having a second as support. This will improve synergy and consistency by lessening the chance of drawing cards that don't work optimally together. For example, if you have some 7 drop bombs in hand, you'd much rather draw Wild Growth than Boar Umbra, and the reverse would be true if you had a hand of cheap beaters.

Some cards I'd recommend for stompy are Steel Leaf Champion, Dryad Militant, Experiment One, and Strangleroot Geist. Some cards for tokens are Parallel Lives, Mycoloth, Centaur's Herald, and Call the Scions. Cards for ramp include Arbor Elf, Voyaging Satyr, Garruk Wildspeaker, and Genesis Wave. And since you're mono, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx will almost always be great.

no actually i'm right on the mana thing. you said turn 2. that means 2 lands. so you'd use 1 of them to cast Call the Scions (if Eye of Ugin could reduce its cost). you have 1 land remaining. plus 2 tokens. 3 mana. cmon now.

Eye of Ugin does not reduce the cost of Call the Scions, because it is not an eldrazi spell. and even if it did, it would not give you 4 effective mana, but 3 remaining. the remaining land plus the 2 tokens.

Lose Blighted Cataract Evolving Wilds Skyline Cascade. Add Cloudpost and Glimmerpost. Consider adding Simic Growth Chamber to bounce Glimmerpost


Dump Spell Shrivel and Hedron Archive. They distract from what the deck wants to do. Replace Call the Scions with Awakening Zone and From Beyond to give you constant, passive token generation. Beastmaster Ascension to give all those tokens some teeth! Fecundity turns each sacrificed token into a draw. Growth Spasm will let you fetch lands and give you more tokens. I see a theme....

Eldrazi Utility Creatures

Keep Blisterpod and Tide Drifter. Dump the other drones. Add the hyper-efficient Nest Invader. Add Blight Herder, Ulamog's Despoiler, and Void Attendant. Consider Vile Redeemer depending on the boardwipe prevalence in your meta game.

Eldrazi Heavies

An army of tokens makes Hand of Emrakul a no-brainer. Definitely have two of Bane of Bala Ged in the main board.

Most of the recommendations are under $1.00 with 95% being less than $.50. That being said, all token decks need to run Cryptolith Rite. Tapping tokens for a mana of any color speeds the deck into overdrive!

Magic & dogfighting share a common principle: When heading to the merge, speed is life.

may i suggest some edits? You wouldn't need elvish mystic, and would probably be better off having something like this

(not sure how many cards this is, but some of these cards may be very helpful)

For protection against boardwipes, Rootborn Defenses, and Heroic Intervention.

Some deckbuilding tips: try to keep your deck at 60 cards, generally run 23 lands, and don't run cards that cost 6+ mana unless they are going to end the game for you or is very important (such as Elspeth, Sun's Champion which can win the game for you). For example, you could cut Paradox Engine, as it isn't as important. Nomads' Assembly can be powerful, but doesn't end the game.

instead of Crusader of Odric, Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip is probably better.

Some powerfull eldrazi are Kozilek, the Great Distortion or Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger. They are kind of expensive so try to put in some more ways to spawn eldrazi scions that you can sacrifice for mana; Such as Eldrazi Skyspawner, However, most of them are green cards, such as Blisterpod or Call the Scions. If you do add green you could also check out World Breaker.

Raise the Alarm was in the deck most of the time, but then I cut them in favor of more removal and disruption. Call the Scions is good, but the three drop slot was getting pretty clogged. Secure the Wastes is great as a 1 of, so i might end up putting it in. Scavenging Ooze is just a good value creature, same with Siege Rhino. The ooze is a stand in right now for Voice of Resurgence and i will likely cut the rhino in favor of Wingmate Roc. Fatal Push is a great card i just havent picked up yet, ill probably be putting in Abrupt Decay instead though since i already have Path to Exile in there. Thanks for the comment!

Take out Jaddi Offshoot. Not helpful. Temple of the False God is good. Rampant Growth over Sylvan Scrying. Blisterpod is good here. Skittering Invasion is great. You need a lot more creatures, because you'll die very quickly once they kill the one creature you manage to get out. Moar suggestions: World Breaker, Brood Monitor, Call the Scions, Eyeless Watcher, From Beyond, and Scion Summoner.
