Champion of Rhonas

Creature

You may exert Champion of Rhonas as it attacks. When you do, you may put a creature card from your hand onto the battlefield. (An exerted creature won't untap during your next untap step.)

DubbaDub on Mayael the anima v2.0

The thing with Siege Behemoth is that it's a 4 toughness creature and only works when it's attacking. Amulet is a bit slow on paper, but in practice the deck can't really affect the board on turn 4, and it usually doesn't do anything except play Mayael the Anima before turn 5 or 6. My main problem is what to cut. My full list of cards I want to includes but is not limited to: Emrakul, the Promised End Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger Gruul Ragebeast Champion of Rhonas See the Unwritten Illusionist's Bracers Aura Shards Mayael's Aria Grasp of Fate

Bateserade on +1/+1 Simic Victory

Big Update: Added in some cards that I already had. Took out some cards I felt didn't contribute enough to the +1/+1 counters, or I had cards which did what the card did, but better. Also adding in both Nissa and Champion of Rhonas may allow me to cheat out some of my more expensive spells, saving mana for adapting those already on the field.

May also recommend Elvish Piper Quicksilver Amulet and Champion of Rhonas as ways of cheating your creatures. See the Unwritten and Selvala's Stampede serve as the same function.

imho if you intend to go to this route and you have no intention of going Mayael, then I would add in Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Rites of Flourishing , Collective Voyage , Veteran Explorer , Hypergenesis , Magus of the Vineyard , Ghirapur Orrery , Reality Scramble , Sunbird's Invocation , Selvala's Stampede , Gate to the AEther , etc. to be able to play a lot of these cards without getting mana screwed since you won't always draw Mayael and have an obscenely high avg cmc.

I would look into more cards like Goblin Sharpshooter , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Krenko, Mob Boss , Sylvan Library , Combat Celebrant , Shalai, Voice of Plenty , Selvala, Heart of the Wilds , Angel of Condemnation , Ahn-Crop Champion (and various other exert cards)), Elvish Piper , etc.

You could also definitely go for infinite attack phases with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Combat Celebrant , Hellkite Charger + Savage Ventmaw , Godo, Bandit Warlord , Aurelia, the Warleader , etc.

Honorable Mentions: Vernal Equinox , Possibility Storm (trade cheaper creatures in for your larger ones), Oath of Druids , Yisan, the Wanderer Bard , Champion of Rhonas , Sword of the Animist , Sword of Feast and Famine , Lifecrafter's Bestiary , Feldon of the Third Path , Heartless Hidetsugu , Stonehewer Giant , etc.

Let me know how the list comes along.

Funny thing Luarviq, Deadeye/Peregrine( Palinchron ) combo not as bad as you would think. There are many ways to actually deal with it. Provided you have the mana on the time as well. Like in response to ETB trigger you can remove Deadeye, or response to activating soulbond.

Some cards that do this are:

In regards to Defense of the Heart , there should really be no reason why that stays on the battlefield longer than one rotation with it being active. There are several great removals that are cheap and decent, ex. Nature's Claim , Krosan Grip , Naturalize , Deglamer , Unravel the Aether to name a few.

I am a fan of tutors, because they lead to deck consistency, it does goes against the spirit of EDH but I am a competitive player so I like to win.

Cards you can consider cutting:

Thing is, most common infinite mana combo in our playgroup is Deadeye Navigator and Peregrine Drake (Unless we are facing infinite everything Animar, Soul of Elements , but it's unlikely this deck will go against him), and both of them will easily dodge the wipe - and they tend to emerge from Defense of the Heart , which needs either counter, or removal ( Beast Within or Chaos Warp ). We also have Judith, the Scourge Diva player, and thank god he doesnt know about Worldgorger Dragon infinite mana combo. All those creatures won't even notice weak Pyroclasm or Volcanic Fallout . I might replace counterspells with instant mass-removal, but again, it requires a lot of mana, which I won't have if I don't land Seedborn Muse or Wilderness Reclamation - otherwise I will just sit with all those creatures in my hand, unable to play because of anticipated shenanigans.

Are there any cards you might consider to be removed? Would love to hear your opinion on that.

I am debating about Champion of Rhonas , since unless I am playing against creatureless control or paintrain (FYI I am the only player with control ( Lavinia, Azorius Renegade ) and paintrain ( Mogis, God of Slaughter ) decks) since he will be able to proc only once, max, before being blocked in the face.

Also, I am considering to add cheap tutors in the deck, like Time of Need to find Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir or Yeva, Nature's Herald , maybe Fierce Empath , Gamble , Signal the Clans , Wild Pair or even Momir Vig, Simic Visionary .

I have also been looking at Hibernation's End . With amount of ramp this deck provides, it can be a good creature fetcher - if it's not destroyed, that is. Cumulative upkeep pretty much allows me to play cards directly from library without paying hybrid costs as early as turn 3.

Looking at curve:

  1. llanovar elves
  2. Incubation Druid / Rattleclaw Mystic
  3. For turn 3 sadly only Reclamation Sage
  4. Champion of Rhonas / Shaman of the Great Hunt / Yeva, Nature's Herald / Rashmi, Eternities Crafter / Sunder Shaman / Frilled Mystic / Mystic Snake
  5. Outland Colossus / Wolfir Silverheart / Seedborn Muse or, unfortunately, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir
  6. Vigor / Intet, the Dreamer / Savage Ventmaw / Hellkite Charger / Flameblast Dragon / Deadeye Navigator
  7. Atarka, World Render / Tyrant's Familiar

Theoretically, if I cast Hibernation's End , I can keep up with cumulative upkeep and land both counterspelly dudes and a stick for them.

But as I said - it's very vulnerable.
