Cathars' Crusade Discussion

Very nice deck. Nice to see a list where I don't have to recomend Shared Animosity and Reconnaissance (seriously suggested this card at least 200 times for Edgar and it felt like singlehandedly drove the price from $2 to almost $10 in 6 months) and don't have to tell someone that Cathars' Crusade and Door of Destinies are too slow and do nothing the turn they come down for a huge mana investment.

Now actual suggestions lol.

Sorin, Solemn Visitor is really good here and his +1 is disgusting with the hyper aggro but have everyone untapped strategy with Reconnaissance (note until your next turn).

Enlightened Tutor to find Shared Animosity, Recon, Necropotence, etc. Lots of different very important utilities in the artifact/enchantment slot here.

This deck can fold to boardwipes hard. Run Teferi's Protection if you have one or can afford one. If not (or in addition if you see lots of boardwipes), Unbreakable Formation , Rootborn Defenses , and/or my favorite piece of secret tech here... Scapegoat which gets around exile, tuck, and -1-1 type boardwipes and gets your eminence triggers again.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decks is appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires.

TheMillKid on [Help Needed] Taigam (Budget) - Token Rebound

Let me start out by saying this might be the most interesting take on Taigam that I have seen!

I think running a few anthem effects (such as Glorious Anthem or Spear of Heliod ) will help make you token army more impactful. Cathars' Crusade is particularly potent, triggering for each token you produce.

You may want to consider cutting Even the Odds , since it has a casting restriction that is not as easily met as some of your other token producers. A few draw spells (even Divination is fine) can help keep you from falling behind on cards.

Happy brewing!

In a +1/+1 counter deck, Pir, Imaginative Rascal is a beast of a card. Hangarback Walker can also be a great card for an impending board wipe. Cathars' Crusade although quite high on curve can lead to plenty of shenanigans if it comes on to the battelfield. Citadel Siege also is a great passive enchantment that can go out of hand and both modes can possibly be helpful.

Hope that helps!

Whitehamma on Ghave, Guru of Spores Because F' em

Iehovah Crystalline Crawler never thought about this card will have to consider it. Winding Constrictor I like but i don't like, for the same reason i like but don't like Doubling Season If im playing someone that is using a Poison deck it helps them (to my knowledge). The Cathars' Crusade + Ghave, Guru of Spores combo is actually my favorite combo. Simple and with a good mana combo its game.

two thing i would add just to be mean. #1 would be Tooth and Nail and get Volcano Hellion and Boros Reckoner #2 would be Cathars' Crusade works well with Marath, Will of the Wild and Polyraptor and you can ping polyraptor without killing marath. have you considered Ashling the Pilgrim as well?

PookandPie on Ghave That Bitch an Infinite Combo [Primer]

1 week ago

Yeah, the combo with Devoted Druid requires 2 +1/+1 counters, minimum. One to reset the Druid, another on something else to keep things going. Cathars' Crusade is the easiest one for this, though Champion of Lambholt + Ivy Lane + Devoted Druid + Ghave is infinite tokens (Devoted Druid can sub in for Earthcraft if you have another counters' source that goes onto anything green, like Ivy Lane). For that same reason, you can sub Juniper Order Ranger in there over Champion, too. Note that Doubling Season specifically won't work with this, because it'd double the -1/-1 counter from untapping and kill the Druid.

That's getting into nebulous 4 card combos, though and there are more combinations than that, but I figure that's good enough for now.
