Coiling Oracle Discussion

Spooncer on Derevi Stax/Value hybrid

cows5467 I see why you recommend Coiling Oracle, but personally i'm just not a huge fan of it in Derevi. I only ever want to hit a land when I play it and it does not ramp into Derevi. I had it in the list years before I put this deck on tapped out and just never hit lands with it. Thank you for the input though.

Strangelove on Muldrotha Lands Matter

I was going to say Splendid Reclamation, but that's wrong (derp), but which helped me realize:

You should choose between Baleful Strix & Coiling Oracle (which draw, but require sac-outlets to work with muldrotha) vs. Diligent Farmhand & Font of Fertility (which ramp, and sac themselves). I think you go for the former. Your sac-lands are already fetching basic lands and you have plenty of other creatures to resurrect with Muldrotha, which you need to then draw (with the former). I would definitely consider Font of Fertility, though, just because it is an enchantment.

I also made a deck around this one, you might be able to get some ideas from my list here Vial Smasher & Kraum EDH.

I could also suggest Avatar of Might, Coiling Oracle, and Training Grounds for Thrasios.

Any deck that plays Nulltread Gargantuan gets an upvote from me!

Consider Coiling Oracle. Pairs great with Nulltread, evolves your 0 power creatures, and is a reasonable graft target. Also inexpensive! I have no idea what Fathom Mage or Master Biomancer are worth right now, but if they're in your budget you should definitely run them. Experiment One is another great evolve creature. Strangleroot Geist and Young Wolf both have undying, which is recursion PLUS a 1/1 counter! Avatar of the Resolute and Narnam Renegade are great 1/1 counter cards. Woodland Wanderer is a personal favorite of mine in 2+ color decks. I know Hardened Scales just recently jumped in price but it's a card to look out for if you can afford it.

You should consider playing some removal or counterspells so that a well-creafted deck doesn't just roll all over you. Mana Leak and Remand are cheap, effective counterspells. Unfortunately Blue + Green is the color combination with the worst removal - your best bets are Rapid Hybridization or Beast Within.

Your lands could use a little improving too. I know that's hard on a budget, but Botanical Sanctum is still (relatively) inexpensive, so you can try that. You could also look at Hinterland Harbor, though honestly I don't remember what the price on that looks like at the moment. At absolute bare minimum you could consider some Evolving Wilds so you can grab the color you want when you need it. They also trigger Revolt for Narnam Renegade, if you do wind up running that.

Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

Yeah, definitely want Brainstorm over Thought Scour.

Also; Coiling Oracle doesn't create a draw trigger. But, Elvish Visionary does, if you want to go that route.

My ideas:-3 flicker -4 thought scour -3 Pulse of Murasa -2 Forest -2 Island -3 Coiling Oracle -4 Jace's Phantasm -1 Sage's row denizon -3 Ghoulcaller's Bell

+4 Thornwood Falls +4 Brainstorm (didn't realize this was missing -- 3 draw triggers in one card, must-have) +4 See Beyond +1 Arcane Denial +1 Moment's Peace +4 Tangle +1 Gush +2 Muddle the Mixture +4 Ponder

This way, your wincons aren't fighting each other; the whole deck is working towards one goal. And with no Leyline of Sanctity to worry about, you only need to worry about countering enchantment removal, post-board!

Hi Jbot9,

We like your deck a lot; reminds us of our Ezuri deck.

Your land-count seems a bit low to us, for a two-color EDH deck. Even most non-competitive decks would have at least 35-36 lands on average. Especially when it's not filled to the brim with cheap ramping stuff. Aside from some more lands, we would therefore also recommend stuff like Birds of Paradise, Rampant Growth, Cultivate/Kodama's Reach, Simic Signet and Chromatic Lantern.

Some more draw options like Coiling Oracle, Bred for the Hunt and Rhystic Study wouldn't hurt either. Maybe even a Sensei's Divining Top or Scroll Rack for filtering purposes. Also, Nissa, Steward of Elements is an exceptionally strong planeswalker if you want to gain some card advantage; her second ability in particular is one of the strongest non-ult planeswalker abilities we've seen to date.

Other stuff we'd recommend would be Thrummingbird (for some more proliferation) and Simic Manipulator (for some more control). We'd also recommend some more options aside from Lux Cannon to destroy (non-creature) permanents. Trygon Predator and Krosan Grip come to mind.

Hope any of this is useful to you. Good luck with the deck.
