Chameleon Colossus Discussion

Xica on How do I beat Ponza?

6 days ago

I didn't mean to imply that Reality Shift is good in the current meta, however this is the instant speed "exile creature" spell that sultai got.
Its pointless against wheenie, but can catch hard to remove threats like Stormbreath Dragon, and would be able to interact well with recursive threats, like Kitchen Finks + Melira, Sylvok Outcast if they would be still played.

It can catch the stuff that tends to be used to hate on the removal of BGX Decks, stuff like Chameleon Colossus, Mirran Crusader ...etc.

Tl;Dr: its not Path to Exile, but its the closest thing the colors, got, and its situationally useful.

I think you definitely need to find room for more lands. All the ramp in the world is basically useless if you're using it to make up for land drops instead of in addition to land drops. I would go up to between 35 and 38 lands. In addition, some great changeling cards like Chameleon Colossus, Mirror Entity, and Taurean Mauler would probably be better than some of the weaker dinos.

Chameleon Colossus is really good in the sideboard

Some thoughts, in no particular order ...

  • I go back and forth on Kessig Wolf Run vs. adding another Fetch. I've certainly won games with Wolf Run plus a Bird or Elf. But I've also had to mul' due to Wolf Run in my opener. Before Tireless Tracker, Wolf run was definitely the better option IMO. With 3x Trackers though, I'm not so sure ...
  • Another Land option is to go to 22 and drop a Bird. +1 Land means extra Clues, plus Lands don't die to removal/Birds do. Though of course, Birds can chump block Flyers/Lands can't.
  • I'm sure it's just a playstyle thing, but I'm not personally a fan of a bunch of 1-ofs (unless a deck also has a bunch of tutors). They're of course amazing when we need them and actually draw them. But I really dislike drawing the wrong side of my deck. For example, I run 2x Chameleon Colossus and 2x Obstinate Baloth in my 75 like you do. But I play with 2x Colossus in the main and 2x Baloth in the side, rather than a 1-1 split.
  • I've found Huntmaster of the Fells to be superb in grindy matchups, but underwhelming everywhere else.

Good luck (and skill) with the new deck!!!

Some suggestions from a fellow Selvala 2.0 player, I strongly suggest Throne of the God-Pharaoh, as others have mentioned, especially because you have the potential to generate some tokens. If you can get a way to tap them all down beyond combat its even more explosive, generating a load of tokens with Hydra Broodmaster or Hooded Hydra then dropping Harmony of Nature with a Throne onboard, you'd gain a ton of life and wipe everyone out at once. Effects that say "each player" are incredibly powerful. If you can afford it, Staff of Domination allows for infinite mana in a similar way to Umbral Mantle. For removal, you're limited in green but as mentioned above, Beast Within is great, Song of the Dryads is another out in a pinch.

A note: Selvala can work well with the x things like hydras, but beyond that just look for creatures that are undercosted for their power and stuff that can sink extra mana into to increase size later, like Chameleon Colossus which you have. Primalcrux and Realm Seekers come out larger than their 6 cmc costs. Duskwatch Recruiter is a good mana-sink that can act as a type of draw to dig through your deck for key creatures. Rhonas the Indomitable is a stud in this deck, 3cmc for 5 power on indestructible deathtouch body, with a built in pump and mana sink is amazing.

Some others to think about:

Hurricane/Squall Line-again, each player, as long as you have more life than the others, you can finish a table with enough mana in one shot

Viridian Joiner can be a second Selvala with Umbral Mantle, goes infinite very easily

Check mine out if you want more ideas, its been a blast to develop and play. Go Green

Glistener Elf is on theme and could act as an extra wincon. I really like Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip as well since she ramps so much. I was surprised not to see a Chameleon Colossus among the ranks as well, pro black pumps itself seems like it would fit nicely.

Spirits on Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH

1 month ago

Posting this Cats that don't suck list to research later, as MegaMatt13 commented, Pride Sovereign is a little weak, plus I find that 24 cats is a little short, although I've won games without playing a cat Stonehewer Giant + Puresteel Paladin + Grafted Exoskeleton.

I excluded many aggro cats because I feel that's not the right way to win in a multi-player format.

I'm sure I've missed some cats. I also have added some cats that do suck, but evaluating combos with them.

Adorned Pouncer, Ajani's Pridemate, Ajani's Sunstriker, Felidar Cub, Fleecemane Lion, Hungry Lynx, Initiate's Companion, Leonin Arbiter, Leonin Relic-Warder, Leonin Shikari, Lost Leonin, Metallic Mimic, Qasali Pridemage, Scrounging Bandar, Sunspear Shikari, Whitemane Lion

Ajani's Chosen, Alms Collector, Balan, Wandering Knight, Chameleon Colossus, Felidar Guardian, Jazal Goldmane, Leonin Abunas, Leonin Battlemage, Seht's Tiger, Taj-Nar Swordsmith, Temur Sabertooth

Hey Memphismaymagic5, fellow Arahbo, Roar of the World player, Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats

You have quite a bit of +/+ for the cats, what do you think about a Triumph of the Hordes for a finishing attack?

Guys like Leonin Armorguard and Grizzled Leotau seem a little underpowered for the CMC? Have you considered Lost Leonin (if you can give him double strike) or Balan, Wandering Knight to free equip all the swords and recover quickly?

Highly recommend Rhonas the Indomitable, 5/5 Deathtouch indestructible for CMC3, can always attack with ANY cat + eminence triggered ability, as well as can pump/trample a cat if needed.

Chameleon Colossus can proc himself too, and as a cat, can get out of hand when you have a bit of mana. +1.
