Centaur Battlemaster Discussion

seshiro_of_the_orochi on Viability of Mutate in CMDR

5 months ago

I stumbled upon an interaction for Mutate that shouldn't be underestimated: Mutate spells target. So they trigger any heroic ability, and they also trigger Gargos, Vicious Watcher.

A kind of cute interaction is Anthousa, Setessan Hero. Animating for example a Cascading Cataracts and then mutating something onto it seems cool.

More fitting heroics in Otrimi's colours include:

Agent of the Fates

Battlefield Thaumaturge

Centaur Battlemaster

Hero of Leina Tower (and some more heroics that get multiple counters)


Triton Fortune Hunter

Other colours of mutate commanders grant access to other useful heroics.

Akroan Skyguard , Phalanx Leader , and Centaur Battlemaster are all good heroic creatures. Cauldron Haze and Launch the Fleet are good budget options for targeting a bunch of creatures.

Doubling Season Atraxa, Praetors' Voice and Witch-Maw Nephilim are all very good for this deck, proliferate mechanics are great, i think you could take out Centaur Battlemaster Asha's Favor im not sure what else but you've got an abundance of green and creatures so maybe cut something from those two categories

I would recommend cards like Centaur Battlemaster and Staunch-Hearted Warrior plus some buff cards like Dragonscale Boon or Incremental Growth. Basically, you should add green

you and my buddy J would get along great. he just built a mono green modern pauper. between us friends, we decided on commons/uncommons and under $20. he utilized Centaur Battlemaster + Solidarity of Heroes haha, its pretty nasty. BTW do u have any suggestions for X spells in mono green(hybrid mana is ok too tho) in common/uncommon for mana dumps? I suggested Stream of Life, but are there any other good X green cards(common and/or uncommon) to dump mana into? thanks buddy, love ur devotion to green!

I like this version better. Turn 3-5 kill might be a bit questionable at the moment though. Frankly i think the deck would be stronger as a midrange one rather than an ultra aggressive one. If that's something you're set on i'd double down on the aggression and have 4x Strangleroot Geist and 4x Servant of the Scale

I still think you're a little light on removal. Path to Exile, Maelstrom Pulse, and Abrupt Decay being the best options. Also an extra land wouldn't hurt.

As for cuts i think i had to cut anything here's what i'd cut and why:

Mer-Ek Nightblade in an ideal world your things would be better anyways

Centaur Battlemaster a bit on the slower side and doesn't have as evasion. He ends up being a beating if they can't answer it but you said in your description you want to make it more aggressive and this guy won't come down until turn 5 at the earliest with no mana acceleration

cut 1 copy of Corpsejack Menace good card but he's 4 mana and you don't want too many in your opening hand

If the plan is to win quickly Bramblewood Paragon might be better than Tuskguard Captain as you won't be activating outlast much. Then again the 2drop slot on your curve is pretty full already so i could see the argument for keeping tuskguard.

I'd keep Anafenza, the Foremost to the sideboard. She utterly destroys graveyaard decks if they can't deal with her but your mana base is a bit awkward and getting all 3 colors quickly might be awkward.

In the current version i'd probably replace the burst of speeds as well. They're nice but if you want to win faster i think you can put in some of the other cards i mentioned.

This is the heroic deck I've been looking for. Well laid out, and very good. My only suggestions are to maybe A) Add Satyr Hoplite B) Change up your use of green so green in this deck isn't just for pump spells. (Either add some green creatures or just swap out your green pump spells for red or white ones) Here are a few green creatures with heroic. The green heroic creatures are not to good compared to the red and white ones :(

Hero of Leina Tower

Setessan Oathsworn

Staunch-Hearted Warrior

Centaur Battlemaster

and Anthousa, Setessan Hero

I've always wanted to make some simple 40-card beginner decks to teach people how to play, and with the combination of me moving to a new school district and my girlfriend saying she is willing to learn, I have finally built them. I would like your opinions on them, and if they seem easy enough for a newer player to understand. (As a note, I tried to include a wide cast of keywords to emphasize the diversity of the game.)

Each deck has 17 lands and one rare, which the deck is themed around
