In my Animar I've cut evolutionary leap for Dark-Dweller Oracle as a tutorable piece and does not require specific mana for activation.

Hi, long post. I'm looking to get a lot of trading done hopefully.

I'm putting together a Estrid, the Masked Oathbreaker deck. I need to trade for Estrid obviously, and I also need some specific cards to to complete the deck. Here's a list:

1x Estrid, the Masked 1x Breeding Pool 1x Estrid's Invocation 1x Gift of Paradise 1x Imprisoned in the Moon 1x Mystic Remora 1x Weirding Wood 1x Swan Song 1x Swords to Plowshares 1x Kiora's Follower 1x Bramble Sovereign 2x Stasis 1x Hokori, Dust Drinker 1x Linvala, Keeper of Silence 1x Chain of Vapor 1x Spellseeker AnyX Forge of Heroes

I also have some specific wants from recent sets that I would be interested in trading for:

1x Phyrexian Altar (EMA) 2x Generous Gift 1x Gamble 1x Sulfur Falls 1x Finale of Revelation 1x Evolution Sage 1x Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin 1x Karn's Bastion 1x Flux Channeler 1x Bolas's Citadel 1x Karn, the Great Creator 2x Runic Armasaur 1x Biomancer's Familiar 1x Dark-Dweller Oracle 1x Immolation Shaman 1x Rhythm of the Wild 1x Emmara, Soul of the Accord 1x Teysa Karlov 1x Ugin, the Ineffable 1x God-Eternal Oketra 1x Teferi, Time Raveler 1x Saheeli, Sublime Artificer 1x Tithe Taker 1x Light Up the Stage 1x Priest of Forgotten Gods 1x Beast Whisperer 1x Cruel Celebrant 2x Dovin's Veto 1x Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion 1x Primal Amulet  Flip 1x Neheb, the Eternal 1x Deep Forest Hermit 17x Snow-Covered Mountain 1x Goblin Engineer 1x Yawgmoth, Thran Physician 1x Cabal Therapist 1x Mirrodin Besieged 1x Hall of Heliod's Generosity 1x Talisman of Hierarchy 1x Talisman of Creativity

And I was also thinking about making a Feather EDH deck, so I would be interested in trading for these cards as well:

1x Feather, the Redeemed 1x Seize the Day 1x Impact Resonance 1x Defiant Strike 1x Inspiring Vantage 1x Aurelia's Fury 1x Rugged Prairie 1x Sunforger

I also have a bunch of commander staples in my binder wants. I'll obviously trade for them for the right offer, but if I haven't listed them here then they're not a priority for me right now.

You can find my Binder here: Link. It should be about 95% up to date. I recommend sorting by price, since there's a lot on there.

Here's a list of some of my notable haves that I'm looking to trade:

1x Leyline of the Void 1x Ensnaring Bridge (STH) 1x Sakashima the Impostor 1x The Chain Veil 1x Purphoros, God of the Forge 2x Vedalken Orrery 1x Scourge of the Throne 1x Life from the Loam 1x Tainted Pact 1x Nature's Will 1x Opalescence 1x Isochron Scepter 1x Master Transmuter 2x Sterling Grove 1x Karador, Ghost Chieftain 3x Nim Deathmantle 1x Lotus Bloom 4x Puresteel Paladin

...and others not mentioned.

SaberTech on Ancestral Animar

Something I hadn't really thought about until recent testing is how Animar is supposed to remove Beast Whisperer from the board if you have it in play before going off with Ancestral Statue . The Caller's trigger is mandatory, so if it is out before the Statue you would end up decking yourself long before you were able to put enough counters on Animar to kill all your opponents with Walking Ballista . My deck still has enough jank cards in it that dealing with the Caller was never a real issue for me, but it is something that I have been thinking about more now that people are talking about potentially cutting Kiri.

Neoform and Eldritch Evolution can both sac the Caller, Kiri can bounce it, and in your list you could also use Dark-Dweller Oracle to sac the Caller. In theory, if you are drawing your deck you should be able to draw enough free mana sources to be able to use any of those options to get rid of the Caller. However, not everyone runs the Oracle and if they cut Kiri all they would have left are two spells, with a good chance that they may have used one of them to get the Statue. Thankfully, since both those spells require them to sac a creature as part of their casting cost, having those spells countered doesn't prevent them from getting the Caller off the board. If people can't afford the moxes though, or someone has Null Rod out, being able to cast those spells is a real concern.

I guess my conclusion from all of that is that if people decide to remove Kiri they should really consider including the Oracle as you have, or have some other bounce creature like Shrieking Drake or Man-o'-War that is able to get rid of the Caller.

multimedia on Monster Girl Massacre (Aggro)

Hey, good deck and nice explanation of how your deck works in the description :)

9 four drops is a lot. I get that they all have interaction with Girl, but with this many you risk only drawing them in the early game and not the one and two drops which are better overall with Girl. Out of all the four drops I think Teysa is the worst. Yes, she adds more die triggers, but other than that she's lackluster for a four drop. Elenda is very slow for a four drop, requiring other cards to make her good. Heroic Reinforcements is a pretty powerful four drop for an aggressive strategy (two tokens, haste and +1/+1 pump for all your creatures) especially nice with Judith's anthem.

Goblins is a direction to consider: Fanatical Firebrand , Goblin Instigator , Legion Warboss , Dark-Dweller Oracle . Good luck with your deck.

It seems like you have a lot of just goodstuff.cards and beats.cards, animar shines when you turn it into more of a storm deck. Consider Beast Whisperer , Phyrexian Metamorph , Kiri-Onna , Imperial Recruiter , Dark-Dweller Oracle , Coiling Oracle , maybe Prowling Serpopard and Siren Stormtamer for protection.

Heya CrazyChessPlayer,

Took a look over the list. Have a couple questions to ask first before I can offer you some cards you can consider!

  • What is your budget? How much are you willing to spend for a single card?
  • Is there any house rules you play by? Ex. No infinite combo, No land destruction, etc.
  • Aside from tribal theme, what deck direction do you want to go to? Aggro, combo, value?
  • Some cards right away I would add albeit is Goblin Matron , Spikeshot Elder , Goblin Sharpshooter , Dark-Dweller Oracle , Goblin Ringleader , and Thornbite Staff . Pretty much value cards that a core Krenko should have, you have most of the great Goblin cards needed. Looking forward to hearing your response!

Driemer84 on Kiki's Delivery Service

Awesome, thanks for the reply. What you say makes a lot of sense. Battlesphere and Hatcher's potential isn't really unlocked without Purphoros on board. Without Purphoros, you have better finishers at 7 mana than Battlesphere, and better utility at 5 mana than Hatcher, like Siege-Gang.

I can see Feldon being too slow. Hoping he survives until your next upkeep can be a lot to ask sometimes. You mentioned you went with God-Pharaoh's Gift, but I don't see it in your current list. Are you off the Gift or is the list not current?

Have you ever tried out Dark-Dweller Oracle or Flameshadow Conjuring ? Oracle gives you one more outlet for your tokens and can be targeted by Kiki and sacrificed similar to Goblin Cratermaker. Is another sac outlet for copies necessary? You may have enough of this effect with Abbot of Keral Keep, Treasure Keeper, and Matter Reshaper though.

Flameshadow Conjuring seems decent as a back up Kiki-Jiki. Do you find yourself hard casting enough creatures to make it worthwhile though? With 30 creatures in your list, it seems like you have enough to reliably trigger it, but is tacking on an additional R to each creature too expensive?

Thanks again for the feed back. I threw this list together with a few changes based on my collection and am having a blast with it, but I've only got a few games in. I appreciate hearing back from the creator!
