Caltrops Discussion

Panas on Having difficulty...

To be honest, you are not playing control per se, but, more of a group-slug variant. Run more rattlesnake effects! Where is your False Prophet and your Koskun Falls? Hell, I might have been running Bearer of the Heavens (not likely without Eerie Interlude) next to my Orzhov Advokist (definite inclusion)! :p

Why are you running Caltrops instead of Lightmine Field? Instead of Cauldron Haze include the Cauldron of Souls itself :p

A Royal Assassin is more handy than a Dark Impostor when you don't want to keep 6 mana open every turn. He also doesn't grow bigger with every activation but he always threats a kill at instant speed if something dares to attack you without being vigilant :p

I would also consider the double damage enchantments to be removed as well, as they work against you as much as they do for you. Use the Curse of Bloodletting to incentivise people in more direct way. The dictate is good though because of flash...

Your maybeboard has some real gems! Especially fond of Martyr's Bond!

Also a Sunforger with 3 targets only is a very sad Sunforger... It's meant to be the answer-stick! Get that Chaos Warp, Oblation, Terminate, Mortify, Return to Dust, Into the Core, Retaliate, Wild Ricochet, Utter End and Anguished Unmaking... maybe even a Master Warcraft? That, or remove Sunforger since it won't be doing much for you as a +4/+0 buff.

Yeah, I'm with Lilbrudder on the ramp there. Orzhov Signet is missing, and the talismans.

For the cuts, maybe you could cut one of the boots. And Lim-Dul's Vault doesn't put you the card you want in your hand. It's like a more expensive and more damaging Vampiric Tutor. Soul of New Phyrexia has never been useful enough to me. Scourglass is a non-bo with Mycosynth Lattice. Caltrops could also be cutted, except if you putted it in for a local metagame answer (facing too many token players?).

One more: Voltaic Construct can make infinite mana with an animated Gilded Lotus or Thran Dynamo. A bit narrow, but fun hehe.

dsil88; there is one copy of Caltrops? Or do you mean that I should add more cards like Caltrops?

Caltrops would be a good defensive strategy card. Make it a creature with deathtouch and lifelink and.

TokenTitan, Pili-Pala is a combo piece for Grand Architect for infinite mana, Elesh is just good, and Caltrops + Sydri, Galvanic Genius stops attackers dead in their tracks. Those aside i appreciate your suggestions and im glad you like the deck

Sydri, Galvanic Genius + Aetherflux Reservoir or Caltrops get 51 or more life, give Aetherflux Lifelink and death touch and keep firing, and give deathtouch to caltrops for defense

Cool deck. I've always liked Crypt Rats, and was looking for decks that use it. Powerstone Minefield and Caltrops might be interesting. Powerstone Minefield I've loved for years, but I've never found a way to work it into a deck.

Also fun are cards that protect your creatures like Light of Sanction, Mark of Asylum and (maybe) Lashknife Barrier.
