Carnage Tyrant Discussion

I like the addition of Torch Courier, in the Ilharg shell. I'm not so sure about Leyline of Sanctity in your sideboard. Discard effects can hurt the deck and there is no denying that, the Leyline also has some value against Prowess or Ensoul decks, personally though I've never been a fan of putting in a dead card. Rather than Leyline I have two copies of Elixir of Immortality this gains life, but also shuffles your graveyard back into your deck.

Other common sideboard inclusions are Ruric Thar, the Unbowed Hornet Queen and Carnage Tyrant (or Plated Crusher in a push) alongside Anger of the Gods and Pithing Needle these cards are likely a good place to start. I was tempted by Archetype of Endurance partly because it's a boar and partly for it's hexproof based abilities.

Hope this is of some help, good luck brewing your deck.

Would you play Carnage Tyrant in this deck?

Where is your card draw?! With such few lands, and only 4 rocks, I find it impractical for your to get Xenagos out earlier than Turn 4. Yes, there are G-d hands with Sol ring and what not, but this deck looks like it will crumble if opponents run interaction. Idk what your meta consists of, but Garruk, Primal Hunter , Soul's Majesty , Lifeblood Hydra , Lifecrafter's Bestiary , Momentous Fall , Return of the Wildspeaker , Sylvan Library would all be good additions.

Your creature count seems low for a Xenagos deck. I would recomend...

Siege Behemoth and Carnage Tyrant for evasion, Atarka, World Render as a beater and Shaman of Forgotten Ways for ramp.

Helm of the host is Winmore 100%. Asceticism is cool, but paying for Xenagos T4, Asceticism T5 gets destroyed only for you to play a beater on T6 and have it removed sucks because you just lost a turn (tempo) to a piece of removal that usually costs less than 3. If anything, I would cut it for beaters with built in protection (like seige and carnage). The easiest way to kill a Xenagos deck is by murdering it creatures, thereby cutting all your sources of drawing and winning by beating them to death. If you want to still include protection spells in this slot, I would recommend Blossoming Defense or Heroic Intervention . While they are 1 time use, they are cheap to play so you can play a beater and hold up protection.

Questing Beast seems like a meta pick, if you have lots of walkers to deal with keep it, otherwise, seems weak.

Hydra Omnivore paints a target on your back. You can use politics to save your creature from the opponent who has removal by attacking a different opponent, but omnivore doesn't make that possible.

Worldspire wurm is 11 mana for a big beater than makes some dudes, should replace with something that comes down earlier or more impactful (Kozilek, terrastadon, etc...). I know you can cheat him in with amulet and piper but that always inst availble and even then that is weak.

I would cut every single Planeswalker you have, they are not impactful enough to justify their slots. Arlin and Samut might be good enough to keep, but the remaining definitely not. Domri is weak removal and weak card draw. Viven's flash is useless in Xenagos, and her other 2 abilities are weak as well. Xenagos reveler doesn't help much since you aren't going wide in this deck.

If you want more cuts or ideas, let me know. If your meta doesn't run interaction, then I am jealous.

Lots of changes. First of all, Gilded Goose is out for Llanowar Elves , Wild Slash out for Thoughtseize . Mana base shifted to accommodate losing the mana fixing from goose. With Veil of Summer being banned, sideboard has changed to a 3 of Blossoming Defense and 2 of Scavenging Ooze . I'm also expecting to remove Questing Beast for something on the top end like Carnage Tyrant

I'm gonna second the suggestion of Carnage Tyrant whole heartedly. It may be a little pricey for budget, but it's just too good to pass up.

Wreak Havoc may be a card worth looking at also Shatterstorm

My question is you say you turn 1 ld spell. So opening hand has 2 spirit guides? Ponza decks can destroy land turn 2 which if your on the play its like the opponents first turn never happened. Turn 3 big threat... i just dont get how keeping them off mana with so many mana dorks or quick decks like storm and affinity lets this deck win. (Affinity may not be as bad because of all the artifact hate spells) like slow ramp to turn 6 to play something seems ineffective.

Few other finishers Glorybringer Combustible Gearhulk Carnage Tyrant and also Shattering Spree could be good. I like gearhulk with your graveyard package because if they take the damage you can grab it back.

Vexing Shusher could be used in sideboard instead of Prowling Serpopard .

It's a smaller creature but it's cheaper and if the opponent tries to counter anything, including a Blood Moon or Heroic Intervention , you shush them for one green.

Questing Beast is a new Throne of Eldraine card that is bound to become a staple in mono-green and should be included in mainboard.

Strangleroot Geist whas mentioned by 6ixer misspelled. Resilient against boardwipes and removal.

Veil of Summer could be put in sideboard depending on your local meta.

Another direction you could take the deck is add some more mana-dorks and put in Leyline of Abundance . Just keep in mind that it doesn't synergise with Arbor Elf .

The Great Henge and Ghalta, Primal Hunger are cards I'm not sold on for monogreen stompy in modern since they could just be win-more cards but they might be great.

Fetches are good for thinning the deck lowering the odds of drawing lands later on.

For those reading the comments that whant some budget options Gaea's Revenge could come in instead of Carnage Tyrant and Castle Garenbrig instead of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . Altough the castle could be added as a one or two off to the current manabase replacing forests.

landofMordor on H:Cash, W:Your Rotating Standard cards!

Look, we all know that once Eldraine comes out, cards that used to be staples will be worth pennies. I'd like to pick up some rotating cards for Cube, so I'm proposing a win-win deal -- I'll buy your cards for slightly cheaper than they're worth now, but relative to their post-rotation prices you'll be turning a profit too.

Here's my biggest wants (although the prices are negotiable):

Lyra Dawnbringer - $3

Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants - $2

History of Benalia - $.75

Legion's Landing  Flip - $.5

Carnage Tyrant - $4

Tezzeret, Artifice Master - $3

Hostage Taker - $.5

I'm pretty sure this is a better deal than you'd get at your LGS, especially once rotation hits. I'm also willing to look through binders or current Standard decks to make up an offer worth your while. Let me know if you're interested! Cheers!
