Chancellor of the Tangle Discussion

Empyrial Archangel can be difficult to deal with for decks that can't do at least 8 damage in a single turn. Might be better in the sideboard?

Chancellor of the Tangle can pull double duty as a target, and letting you drop Overgrown Battlement or Wall of Roots a turn earlier.

Nice! Veil of Summer for sideboard, Paradise Druid over Bloom Tender i believe untapping in response to the removal trigger will protect it while making mana. Chancellor of the Tangle could be a nice fit, and at least a singleton Emrakul, the Aeons Torn . Deck shell seems super legit!

Squirrel_of_War Well, let's see what a perfect hand would look like.

Glistener Elf + Scale Up gets us to 6, so we would need a Forest , Chancellor of the Tangle , Reckless Charge and Simian Spirit Guide in hand, that's 9 counters at 6 cards with haste, add Mutagenic Growth as #7, putting us at 11 counters. So yes, with the perfect hand, we could pull off a turn 1 kill.

I'm thinking of building this or a Jund version with Chancellor of the Tangle and Temur Battle Rage . There has got to be a way to pull off a turn 1 kill! I'm sure it's a low chance of pulling it off but it would be awesome to do it.

It'd be no fun to just include Standard legal cards, so lets just go Modern.

The first thing that would 100% happen is MonoDross. 60x Chancellor of the Dross .

Everything else would run Providence to survive it. Then they'd probably run alot of Chancellor of the Forge and Memnite or some sort of combo with Chancellor of the Tangle , Gemstone Caverns , and Simian Spirit Guide . Maybe Midnight Guard / Presence of Gond as a t2 Splinter Twin w/out haste?

One big problem is the fact that MonoDross Mirror matches would just be like "Lololol neither of us can win we both at 21 let's see who concedes first" or it would be whoever goes first wins bc the other person nat mills first.

What say you?

I feel like the Chancellor cycle are amazing for a deck that can offer such awful chances at risk v. reward lmao. Chancellor of the Spires , Chancellor of the Tangle and Chancellor of the Forge for reference. Opening Hand? GREAT! Not opening hand...meh.

Good luck with the deck! +1

A lot of these are in the $10 range but might as well suggest em' anyways.

Eldrich Evolution decks are usually good at getting out a turn 2 Magus of the Moon / Eidolon of Rhetoric off a mana dork for the occasional free win.

Don't forget also that Birthing Pod is still legal in that format and gives you a less weak to Force of Will alternative to EE that also works as an engine if the rest of your deck is derpy green creatures. The drawback being your payoff would have to be in the 8 cmc range which isn't the worst considering that includes Griselbrand , Craterhoof Behemoth , Tidespout Tyrant , Archetype of Endurance , Ashen Rider and Platinum Emperion (literally all the same payoffs as the format's primary reanimation deck -elesh norn).

Chancellor of the Tangle is a green mana source that pitches to Allosaurus Rider and can even be a payoff in a pinch and Chancellor of the Annex gives you a potential to go off turn 1 with the pregame trigger for backup and also can be a payoff sometimes.

Insist cantrips, pitches to rider and can even punish opponents who plan to "counter the payoff not the mana source".

I might add more suggestions if I think about them.
