Deranged Hermit Discussion

Permafrost on Wort, The Forkmother

If you wanted to go super cheese, Tooth and Nail copied gets you Purphoros, Avenger, Chancellor of the Forge and any other token maker like Siege-Gang Commander or Deranged Hermit. If you have 7 or so lands in play, you can deal somewhere around 50 or 60 damage to the table.

If you ran Deepglow Skate, you could add more planeswalkers to the deck to allow them to activate the ults immediately. Alchemist's Refuge and Leyline of Anticipation giving you flash is good to use Ramos on other player's turns, plus they go well with Seedborn Muse if you have it. Flameshadow Conjuring, Deadeye Navigator, Eerie Interlude, Faith's Reward, Progenitor Mimic, Stolen Identity, Rite of Replication, and Clone Legion allow you to abuse more ETB effects. Craterhoof Behemoth, Venser, Shaper Savant, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Zealous Conscripts, Acidic Slime, Chancellor of the Forge, Chancellor of the Spires, Sepulchral Primordial, Luminate Primordial, Duplicant, Dragonlord Silumgar, Sower of Temptation, Hornet Queen, Deranged Hermit, Myr Battlesphere, Angel of Invention, Cultivator of Blades, have great ETB effects to be abused. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Cytoplast Manipulator work really well with the Marchesa, the Black Rose you're running. Necropolis Regent, Master Biomancer, Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, Death's Presence, Experiment Kraj, and Verdurous Gearhulk are great for building up creatures with lots of +1/+1 counters. Greater Good, Prime Speaker Zegana, and Tishana, Voice of Thunder are great card draw sources for this deck. If you reanimate creatures from the graveyard often enough, Flayer of the Hatebound is strong in that department, and if you're looking for more big damage/lifeloss effects, Warstorm Surge, Stalking Vengeance, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, and Pathbreaker Ibex are good as wel. Conflux is really strong with Ramos in play, especially with Sakashima the Impostor copying him. If don't mind it being janky, you can copy your Panharmonicon by turning it into a creature with Karn, Silver Golem or March of the Machines. Take it a step further by adding Opalescence so your enchantments can be copied too. Ultimately, this is just supposed to be a big list of cards to draw inspiration from, not to all be added to the deck.

i would also consider Thelonite Hermit instead of Deranged Hermit or maybe find space for them both, plus chuck in a Rhonas the Indomitable, coz he's cool

nice cube tho, i'm planning on expanding my 360 into something similar :)

Looks like your going for a kinda control and slight combo, idrk lol.

I think this can become an insane control Meren deck, adding kill spells stuff like Mindslicer and more, you can probably look up a deck list for control.

Maybe some more tutors, for sure Grave Pact that's a must if your running Dictate of Erebos maybe look at Nim Deathmantle it's more comboish but with grave pact and stuff is just stupid your maybeboard survival of fittest and phyrexian altar are broken.

Looks like it could be a really good control deck if you want to go that way, I'm not the best of saying exactly what cards you want to add but you can go crazy dick move and play Myojin of Night's Reach just be real controlling and don't let anyone play anything, then later game combo with mikaeus or Nim Deathmantle and some token generators Wurmcoil Engine gives lifelink Pentavus or Deranged Hermit would be a decent token generator.

Hopefully that helped a bit, thanks for taking a look at my deck, gonna rethink Protean Hulk could work really well, I'll get back to you. For adding a land either Path of Ancestry or Golgari Guildgate lol

I just love how Regal Caracal is the Deranged Hermit for kitties! I would also love to play you sometime as I have a cat deck myself and it would be cool! Maybe Door of Destinies would be good too? I have that in my Pegasus deck.

Squall Line may be a better use of the slot then Hurricane

you say squirrels, but it seems Deranged Hermit is the only producer? seems like mostly green token fun (Second Harvest?)

no Nut Collector, Squirrel Nest, Liege of the Hollows, Acorn Catapult, Druid's Call, Acorn Harvest, Squirrel Mob, Krosan Beast or Chatter of the Squirrel ??

Earthcraft+Squirrel Nest and Druid's Call+Acorn Catapult are especially fun.

Not to ruin your fun, but don't Parallel Lives and all the populate cards risk killing Ormendahl, since he's legendary? Besides, sacrifing five squirrels to summon him kind of non-bos with Squirrel Mob. I'd maybe look to something like Overrun or Beastmaster Ascension for your win.

I'm surprised you don't have Deranged Hermit in there! With Parallel Lives, he's five mana for eight squirrels. I'd consider him over the Wrangler, for instance.

Hi there,

your deck looks sweet :-)

I just stumbled upon the imperious perfect and peema, maybe you would want to exchange them for more straightforward options since you do not rely on elves at all (and tapping for a token producer is the slow way to get more tokens). You might want to consider Nemata, Grove Guardian and Deranged Hermit instead since they provide a shitload of tokens you can work with... and Nemata is a winoption herself ;-) If you want more saproling tokens you can try Verdeloth the Ancient.

Best regards
