Champion of Lambholt Discussion

Cmi1103 on The Elven Planeswalk (Rhys EDH)

+1 from me! I always love seeing a fast Rhys deck, so fun to watch them spiral out of control before anyone can even blink! Particularly intrigued by the Extra Synergy between Doubling season and Planeswalkers I didn't even realize was there! Which brings me into suggesting Huatli, Radiant Champion. Although she doesn't need much help from doubling season in order to ultimate quickly. Guaranteed card draw for the rest of the game is a huge advantage, especially when you go through cards so quickly in a fast deck such as this. I also think that Marwyn, the Nurturer and Champion of Lambholt go insane in a Rhys deck. Marwyn gets huge and provides insane amounts of mana, while Champion of Lambholt makes your creatures virtually unblockable, so much fun! I'll leave here my own Rhys deck if you want to take a look! 0-60 in 3.5! (Rhys tokens). It's more focused on using X token generator instants and sorceries to blow up exponentially with all the token doubling abilities.

Rhys is so awesome! You definitely need either a lot of dice or an insane amount of tokens! I've been working on my rendition of her army for a bit now 0-60 in 3.5! (Rhys tokens) if you're interested. A few things you might consider:Marwyn, the Nurturer is another mana dork that works insanely well with Rhys. She also becomes a big stick to swing if you don't need the mana. I also love Seedborn Muse which is so broken in a Rhys deck, tokens out the Wazoo! Champion of Lambholt is also a great wincon piece, making your army of tokens virtually unblockable!

Champion of Lambholt goes great here, making your creatures pretty much unblockable. I would also consider adding Parallel Lives, Primal Vigor, and Anointed Procession to the deck as backups if your doubling season gets removed, because it will be targeted frequently in a more competitive deck. I would also throw in a few tutors such as Enlightened Tutor, Idyllic Tutor, and Eladamri's Call to help find your pieces quicker. I have a Rhys deck I run and personally consider to lean towards the competitive side if you want to check it out for any other ideas. 0-60 in 3.5! (Rhys tokens) I personally love all of the X costing token generator cards to help speed up and fill up the board really quickly.

Forkbeard on Rhys the Redeemed: Power in Numbers

Thanks very much RenlarZ88. Real talk, I really like all of those substitutions and suggestions you've thrown out there (Field of the Dead! of course!) and I'm going to do a bit of a deck re-work to fit some of these cards in. KevinLandonChanning, I'm going to add a couple of those protection spells - specifically Heroic Intervention & Flawless Maneuver.

Onto a few of the specific card mentions substitution choices:

  • Concordant Crossroads: I hear you on this card - I typically hate cards that give my opponents mutual advantage, but haste is such a key effect for this deck, particularly when you've got the possibility of infinite squirrels. With that in mind, you only slap this card down when you have a key swingy move e.g. squirrel swarm. Another haste friendly favourite is to pair alongside an entwined Tooth and Nail with Avenger of Zendikar + Craterhoof Behemoth to give all those suddenly giant plants haste. TLDR: play this card carefully and wisely!
  • Hornet Queen: OK fine. Enough people have commented on this one being too expensive and clunky and yeah, I have to concede and agree. It has won me games before by getting out swarms of doubled flying deathtouchers, but it's also sat in my hand for too long waiting for the mana required. Good call, it's up for the chop.
  • Champion of Lambholt: this is a good idea and a fun one in theory, but it really just becomes a 'kill on sight' card once people clue in to the unblockable swarm threat. I've had it in this deck for a long time now and it's never really worked out the way I want it to. Time to refine some choices & hone/streamline this deck to it's basic theme by removing some of the cute but conditional trickery like Champion here.
  • Pir's Whim: this is a bit of a pet card in here and sits alongside my suite of Gaea's Cradle tutor cards (e.g. Crop Rotation and Sylvan Scrying). I like the politics it enables in FFA matches, but I also play a lot of 2 headed giant 2v2 in my playgroup so the partner ramp is a sweet little bonus. The artifact/enchantment removal is strictly gravy. Saying all of that, 4 mana is a pricey ramp spell so I'm not married to keeping this card in here forever, defs up for chop consideration.
  • Lots to think about, significant deck update coming!

    Hardened Scales, Doubling Season, Branching Evolution, Kalonian Hydra, Champion of Lambholt, Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, and Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter are all good, though some of them are not budget. Here's a link to my +1/+1 counters deck, if it gives you any ideas: Listen to the Praetors' Voice.

    Cmi1103 on Another Rhys Deck

    Rhys is amazing! Just a few recommendations that I think are way to fun to play that I run in my Rhys deck 0-60 in 3.5! (Rhys tokens): Seedborn Muse is so broken here. Champion of Lambholt makes everything basically unblockable and becomes huge itself. Throne of the God-Pharaoh works as an alternate wincon if you can't win through combat damage. Card Draw is also hard to come by with Rhys so I would recommend Skullclamp and Huatli, Radiant Champion. Cryptolith Rite is also insane for mana.

    Thanks KevinLandonChanning, appreciate the deck props! I'm always keeping my eyes open for new cards to spruce up my decks and I haven't seen anything in recent sets that would have a home in here. I messed around with the idea of Branching Evolution but the only cards that pair with it here are Cathars' Crusade and Champion of Lambholt so I scrapped that plan.
