Crushing Canopy Discussion

If you were siding in Crushing Canopy primarily against Glorybringer, you might as well replace it with Chandra's Defeat. It also provides you a super easy, rewarding answer for Chandra as well.

Instead of Crushing Canopy i would reccomend Thrashing Brontodon instead. And since your only white source is to cast Gishath, Sun's Avatar , maybe 2 Unclaimed Territory instead of Inspiring Vantage would be better, incase you draw it after t3 , at least it'll tap for colourless and comes in untapped!

Good news on artifact and enchantment removal - it was revealed today that Naturalize is being reprinted in Rivals of Ixalan, so there is your best answer. Your best option for the next week or so is Appetite for the Unnatural. Other options are Creeping Mold, Crushing Canopy, and Slice in Twain.

I think Rhonas the Indomitable is a great option for the keywords. However, you do not have any creatures with power 4 or greater to allow Rhonas to attack or block (without pumping them using Rhonas' activated ability). You might try play-testing with Rhonas in place of 2x Ranging Raptors, and Ramunap Hydra or Ripjaw Raptor replacing the 2x Vanguards.

You have access to plenty of ways to fix mana with green. Evolving Wilds Hour of Promise Gift of Paradise are all cheap and playable. Depending on your meta, you could even get away with running the tapped lands that come in the deck builders toolkit. The trick for you is that you have a bleed effect with Wayward Servant. You produce a ton of zombie tokens(so many that I would cut all non zombie creatures and use green for pump spells/ramp) so you should be able to win the war of attrition. Essentially make this a black white zombie deck that splashes green for a couple good spells. This will help it stay budget, and give you some options that black and white lack. For example, green hates flying, so if someone has a flier you can sideboard in Crushing Canopy and problem is solved.

It's early days.

I'm not piloting it, so all the info I have is second hand.

It absolutely trounced Ixalan Ramunap Red tonight 2-0, but the Cats player has added fliers to his deck, which proved challenging. He also uses a lot of Ixalan's Binding and Cast Out, so we're trying Crushing Canopy in the Side, against him.

The meta has started to slow down, and I have some Vraska, Relic Seeker lying around, so I am reluctantly putting some in.

She will take the place of Verdurous Gearhulk, at the top of the curve. That is just being hit with Abrade, anyway.

We'll see how that goes.

This is pretty cool.

Couple things I was thinking while going through it -

Probably don't want to have Crushing Canopy and Slice in Twain in the main board since lots of decks don't play enchantments but they're excellent sideboard cards.

Definitely think Verdant Sun's Avatar would go naturally in here since you gain life equal to toughness so if you play Looming Altisaur you get seven life which is pretty insane.

I'd reccomend Cast Out or Ixalan's Binding since you almost always need an exile source for big threats like The Scarab God which everyone and their mother plays nowadays.

Also think Blossoming Defense would serve you well here since people will probably try to target your Belligerent Brontodon the moment you put him out.

Rex_JB24 on Wait, you can actually win an FNM with a 5€ deck?

Digging the improvements. Regarding sideboard, let me just say that there are very few flying threats in the meta that aren't vehicles. The ones that are there, your mainboard is already equipped to handle with all the pseudo-fight removal. Instead of Crushing Canopy I'd like to see Slice in Twain instead, because it deals with enchantments and vehicles while also drawing you a card. Sure, this doesn't answer Angel of Invention but you have your fight spells for that.

What answers to Pummeler are you seeing most often? My major obstacle has been Ixalan's Binding. A solid answer with some flexibility is Crushing Canopy. Most players will assume you have no answer to any enchantments and won't be able to respond if you cast Canopy during their end step, regain your Pummeler, then swing at them on your turn.
