Chameleon Colossus Discussion
2 days ago
Nice deck! The name alone is fantastic lol. Check out my own edh-cat-deck here: WonderCats. There are a couple cards that I think are auto-include for this deck, yet are glaringly absent. Sigarda's Aid is AMAZING for any Voltron deck. Chameleon Colossus is technically a "Cat," & his pump ability is crazy with Arahbo's Eminence ability, so I am curious why you cut him out. soul22 & Winterblast: I can see why Fleecemane Lion didn't make the cut, but I've found him to be a very nice body when going Voltron- expensive CMC, but I basically think of him as a 7-mana Indestructible, Hexproof 7/7, which is pretty badass when you throw a couple things on him, such as Fireshrieker, Quietus Spike, Prowler's Helm, & Sword of Fire and Ice, lol. I personally don't think Watchers of the Dead is strong enough to make the cut- his ability lets them keep the important stuff in their graveyard. Scavenging Ooze seems better, imo, since it actually targets the problem. I would also put Aura Shards in there, since there are enough non-cats to be even better than Qasali Slingers in your deck, imo, though I run both. Another sweet Voltron guy is Stonehewer Giant. I prefer him over Stoneforge Mystic for edh. Also, what happened to your ramp? Cultivate/Kodama's Reach got cut? Even with the artifact "ramp," it seems very low, since you only have 30 lands. Another missing piece is card draw: I personally like Hunter's Insight with Arahbo. A game-ending spell in my deck that I absolutely LOVE top-decking is Genesis Wave. I found Sacred Cat to be underwhelming in actual play. Skyhunter Prowler is a flying vigilant 4/6 on the attack, and a 1/3 on defense, & I have found his 2 keyword abilities to be very very good when he is Voltron'd-up. I also cut Sword of Feast and Famine & Sword of Light and Shadow from my deck; the protection was too problematic, since it made the Eminence ability useless, and also prevented stuff like Duelist's Heritage & even pumps such as your Phytoburst/Berserk. Anyways, just some suggestions- good luck!

- She's a great early blocker.
- I love the card filtering.
- The incidental lifegain is superb ... it's almost always more than Kitchen Finks, because nobody ever bothers to Skullcrack a land drop.
- The synergy with Tireless Tracker and Chandra, Torch of Defiance is always good, and often insanely good.
All that said, with Jund rising (due to Bloodbraid Elf) we're sure to see a bunch more Tarmogoyf soon, and Courser is pretty terrible in that match up, since it gives them an Enchantment and a Creature for Goyf. So a few weeks from now, I could easily see having some mix of Finks and Jadelight Ranger in those slots. And without 3x Courser, I might drop one of the Chandras too ...
I've never been a fan of Huntmaster of the Fells Flip. I mean, it's a great card (it's a 4-of in my Modern Wolves funsies deck) and I know a lot of folks love it. But it's just never worked for me in Ponza.
I really like Pia and Kiran Nalaar; not running them is just a meta call. I'm on 2x Obstinate Baloth for now (due to Burn and Lili), and Chameleon Colossus and Thrun, the Last Troll are both regulars in those slots. But I could easily see running P&K there ... especially if Affinity becomes a big part of the meta, since Thopters are one of the few tools we have to stop Etched Champion.
Hope that helps!

Note that the boost is also based on all creatures, not just creatures that share a controller. If you have a Chameleon Colossus and your opponent has 5 creatures that share no creature types, you're Chameleon Colossus will get +5/+5 and each of your opponent's creatures will get +1/+1.

GeminiSpartanXThanks for the tips! I'm new to eldritch ponza so this was super helpful. Reclamation Sage and Eternal Witness should definitely be swapped. Chameleon Colossus was also a planned sideboard card but with the amount of black decks in modern is worth maindecking. Rekindling Phoenix looks great but would make me want to run at least 1 more 6 drop to evolve into. Siege-Gang Commander and Pia and Kiran Nalaar seem to fill a similar role. Do you have any thoughts on which one would usually be better? Also are there any other creatures that you think are worth sideboarding for certain matchups?

I've been playing lots of Eldritch Evolution Ponza lately, and I can say that Eternal Witness fits better in the deck than Solemn Simulacrum. Witness can get back a fetchland if you need the land, and can be sacced just as well for all your good 5 drops. If you want a sac-able 4 drop, I recommend using Rekindling Phoenix since it's a great threat on it's own as well. Pia and Kiran Nalaar would be a better MD inclusion than Reclamation Sage in most matches, since you're covered on that front with Acidic Slimes anyway. I'd also cut 1 primal command or the chords for more threats, since you're pretty heavy on 5 drops. A MD Chameleon Colossus is a great silver bullet against all the black decks in Modern right now. I'd also try to go up to 21 lands, since you still need to find at least 3-4 lands most games in case your dorks get bolted/you use them to evolve into magus on turn 2. Hopefully the deck will feel smoother once you get to testing. Good Luck!

I enjoy 2x Throne of the God-Pharaoh in my GB Elf deck. It can definitely hurt your opponent.
Also Chameleon Colossus is a good 1of in elf side

Maybe Chameleon Colossus as one of your Dinosaurs?
