Defiant Greatmaw Discussion

Shwang on Liliana Starter Deck Upgrade, Help needed

This probably isn't what you want to hear, but I would take out Liliana, Death Wielder because of the high cost. I agree with xxCopperheadx that you should have 4 copies of Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons. And I would quad up on the Defiant Greatmaw and Hapatra's Mark too.

Also, his suggestions of Ammit Eternal and Fatal Push are good. Another fun one to think about adding in is Tenacious Hunter.

Another thought is that Cartouche of Strength is very good, and would help you replay Trial of Ambition.

Good luck!

Instead of Defiant Greatmaw you can check in to using Empyreal Voyager. I feel it's such a critically underplayed card and it can gain you a ton of energy, especially if you pump it up. It fits the color scheme and it's definitely something you opponent will have to remove or it will kick some ass.

Channeler Initiate would also work well here as a form of ramping you in to Bristling Hydra on turn 3 which is bad for your opponent.

I could also see Uncage the Menagerie possibly working here as some fun jank if you cast it for X = 3, as you can get Empyreal Voyager, Rogue Refiner, and Rhonas the Indomitable out at the same time.

If you're not trying to make this deck super competitive, play with some jank! Reason / Believe could be fun, you can try using Champion of Wits for some extra card draw early and late game. Nimble Obstructionist can get you another flying creature or it acts just like Disallow does. Fabrication Module can pair nicely with some of your creatures. Confiscation Coup can literally snatch an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger from your opponent. There's a ton you can play with, so have fun with it!

i dont see how Defiant Greatmaw fits there, it doesnt have any synergy with your deck..

Have you considered Nest of Scarabs, Exemplar of Strength, or Defiant Greatmaw? Plague Belcher also synergizes a well with Ammit and Festering Mummy.

Have you considered Defiant Greatmaw, the ability to remove counters from something like Ammit Eternal may be worth playtesting.

Hi there! This looks like an sweet take on the -1/-1 counters archetype! I have a few suggestions for you:

In any case, awesome deck! I hope you have fun with it!

There are a few cards that would be interesting to add in the deck. Blisterpod seems like a nice turn 1 that ramps you and relives -1/-1 counters off other creatures so they're big. Crocodile of the Crossing is probably too slow despite haste. Defiant Greatmaw on the other hand seems as a nice way to relive counters as well. If you ran Exemplar of Strength as another 2 drop, Claim might be useful, if not already useful. I think the amount of Magma Sprays is probably overkill. I am sure the Nest of Scarabs are good, but I am unsure how good. The sideboard feels very untuned right now as well, I will post on that a bit later, but I do like the deck a lot.

Triton on SNEK ATTACK!!!1

dlamars I do have a Decimator I can use, I'm kinda split since his mana cost is quite hefty (even with the emerge cost). I was considering Ivy Lane Denizen as a means of keeping my commander alive, perhaps Defiant Greatmaw? Chainbreaker is a card I'll consider, and Grim Poppet would be amazing if he was a lower CMC, oh well haha. Any suggestions for what to cut for Defiant Greatmaw, perhaps?

Thanks for the suggestions!
