Devoted Crop-Mate Discussion

phDaemon on Mardu Warriors

Also, in aggro decks, I especially recommend running 2 - 4x Valorous Stance. That card's utility is way too good to pass up. Especially in a meta with Fatal Push. It will not block Path to Exile, but most people would probably try not to use those up right away. Instead of Mardu Charm, I would run Secure the Wastes, and for the most part Crackling Doom is kind of worthless in modern, unless you're going up against a control type deck.

Kolaghan's Command is almost a must if you can afford the price (since you got the colors I would put at least 2x in my SB). I bought 8 of them when they were selling for a buck, I knew that card was going to be broken.

I would:

Maybe if you find space for it, a Mardu Strike Leader.

Lands:

Total 22 lands since your CMC is so low. You also need some wincon finishers, Sorin, Solemn Visitor is my aggro planeswalker of choice here. He also pairs nice with the painlands, basically having you recover any early self-pain. You should definitely use some disruption, probably Thoughtseize in SB otherwise you are highly vulnerable to wipes. Something on the sideboard for drawing extra cards wouldn't hurt either, e.g. Painful Truths.

So, for the SB, I would add

2x Thoughtseize2x Anguished Unmaking2x Blessed Alliance2x Kolaghan's Command

Depending on how competitive your meta is, there's a few other things you might need to add in there.

The core of most warrior decks look extremely similar because those are generally the best warriors out there.

Draw_Wurm on Budget Jazal Goldmane

Hey CommanderTheory. Came across this and the original post when I was looking at budget lists.

I think I may have been able to improve a few of its weaknesses while still keeping it on budget by incorporating cards from more recent sets:



Added cards from recent sets at 1 drop, 2 drop and 3 drop that are either functionally superior e.g Glory-Bound Initiate over Dromoka Warrior, offer recursion (Devoted Crop-Mate, Hallowed Spiritkeeper) or some form of card draw (Thraben Inspector, Bygone Bishop). Also added Oketra's Monument and Oketra the True to support the strategy.

Still weak to wraths and white's card draw weakness.

Lightmage_13 on My Red/White/Blue Cycling Deck

Hi so I don't think that this deck has genuine use for fraying sanity because of the naga you have and I know that they discard but you don't have very many way of getting value anyways from discarding other then your aftermaths which is definitively not enough.your Devoted Crop-Mate has 1 target and should not be in the deck.Not to mention that there is virtually zero consistency and half the cards in the deck do not have a purpose I also recommend dropping the Manalith and the Traveler's Amulet and putting in more land probably duals.You should look into other cycling strategies online and keep what they have in consideration when making a deck you seem very new to the game and I hope my comment can give you some insight.

Errast on Samut, The Warrior Queen!

Looking back on previous comments, I realize I've made the mistake of not actually including early game warriors, which is a crying shame, as it's likely the best strategy with such a poorly supported tribe (poorly supported in these colors).

So here GemKnightDante, is a long list of creatures that cost 4 or less (one exception), that would fit quite well in a warrior themed deck. Unfortunately, the way warriors work, you'll likely be going heavy into boros, and splashing green, but I'll try my best.

Exert Creatures: Missed quite a lot of these on my first search, which is why I was so biased against them at first, but now I realize there's an Exert lord! Throw as many as you can in, they're a great subtheme for the deck. Also include Ahn-Crop Champion here.

Any creature that grows bigger: Just what the deck needs, as I mentioned in my first post. These cards are cheap in the early game, and only get stronger as the game goes on. Lord of Shatterskull Pass is an honourable mention, as he can wipe boards clean for your warriors late game.

Voltaic Brawler: An un-assuming enough creature. Doesn't really scale, but he can brawl with the best in the early game. As with any good warrior, he's efficiently statted, and costed. His energy ability makes him a beast against superfriends, as he'll kill any early game 'walkers before they can get going.

Dragon Hunter was a strange ommission from the first draft considering you said you were facing a dragon deck. Throw him in and he'll block the big nasties for you all day.

Neheb, the Eternal: The minotaur, the myth, the legend. This card is leading my current favorite edh deck, and so I'll vouch that this will easily pay for itself in a very short amount of time.

Hunted Troll: But this card gives my opponents blockers! Yes, but not all of them, and it's an 8/4 with Regenerate. Other than being a fantastic creature, this guy doesn't do much, but isn't being an 8/4 warrior with regenerate enough?

Anyways, the goal of this 3rd (and hopefully last) list was to give you some early game cards so you could drop your cuerve down a bit. Cards like Furystoke Giant, and Gisela, Blade of Goldnight only get better the more creatures you can field after all.

The trouble with Samut, Voice of Dissent is that I would have to lose Glorybringer and I feel like it wouldn't be worth it. I don't really like the expense of Tah-Crop Elite and I feel like Combat Celebrant and Devoted Crop-Mate are better 3 drop options.

DubiousDanish on (B/W/G) Warrior Galore

Good start Mulle. You need to switch it's tag from standard to anything else, if not all of the comments you get will be about that insignificant detail. As for your deck, it looks really fun and I really like the Warrior tribal theme.

Now for some suggestions: Oketra's Monument Cost reduction for white creatures and more warriors.----Brutal Hordechief You're playing aggro and his ability bypasses a board stall.----Devoted Crop-Mate Your opponent will need to stop this guy, reviving fallen warriors is always good.----Glory-Bound Initiate This guy hits hard when exerted, if he is unblocked it equates to an 8 point life swing. If he's blocked, you still gain 4 life on top of his combat damage.----Mardu Strike Leader He is a warrior who creates warriors, need I say more?----Obsidian Battle-Axe Every warrior that you get after this is on the battlefield can have +2/+1 and haste... yeah.----Metallic Mimic This wonder of Kaladeshi ingenuity is great in every tribal deck ever, literally!----Anguished Unmaking Exile anything you can target is worth 3 life more often than not.----Cremate If you are using Mardu Woe-Reaper because someone in your playgroup is playing a graveyard build, this card can replace that mechanic with a better upside. Draw a card > gain 1 life & any card > creature only.----Declaration in Stone Against builds running 4x copies or tokens this card does work. Trust me, it's worth considering.----Long Road Home A great way to protect one of your creatures, cast in respone to your opponent's spell and it comes back stronger.--Path to Exile This is a great way to exile for one mana. Though against certain decks letting your opponent fetch a land is bad. Worth consideration but requires evaluation utilizing information that I don't have.----Suffer the Past Another graveyard-hate card, but the upside to this one is that it can also finish off an opponent.----Swords to Plowshares One mana to exile, one mana. Even if they gain a few life this card is a staple in most white decks.----Utter End Another way to exile anything you can target. It costs one more mana than Anguished Unmaking but does not burn 3 life.----Adaptive Automaton Has been a staple of tribal decks for a long while, but is now competing with Metallic Mimic. The argument about which is the right choice is quite divisive. Mimic comes in earlier and permanently buffs each creature (of the chosen type) after it, whereas Automaton buffs everything (of the chosen type) as soon as it hits the battlefield. Your choice I guess.----Cover of Darkness In the right matchup this card reads "at the next damage step, you win the game", In other matchups it's terrible. I had to mention it since you're running a Black aggro deck.----Stoneforge Masterwork Deserves an honorable mention due to you running a tribal deck.----Mirage Mirror A recent card that I think could start to see play in decks looking for ways to use mana in the late game.

The cards that I would put on the chopping block first: Archfiend of Depravity It's a great card but does not contribute to the tribal theme.----Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip Sweet after flipped but difficult to flip without a sacrifice option.----Mardu Woe-Reaper Has some utility but there are much better options for those slots.----Scoured Barrens Enters tapped and gains one life could be upgraded with a number of other lands. (Isolated Chapel, Mana Confluence, Marsh Flats, Orzhov Basilica, Scrubland, and Tainted Field (If you decide to lean toward Black more) for instance)

That's all I've got for now, if you would like me to take another look later let me know. Good luck and happy hunting!

gebell on Exert? What's That?

3 months ago

I love this idea. Some thoughts (without testing this though, so who knows):

What about Honored Crop-Captain instead of Khenra Charioteer? Obviously trample is nice, but one less cost and eligible to be brought back by Devoted Crop-Mate as a result.

I'd also think about Blossoming Defense over the Highspire Infusion. The energy doesn't seem critical for you, and the hexproof is so great against the pile of removal out there.

I'd also consider a Selfless Spirit which would let you hurl your exerted creatures into a bigger wall, getting the benefits from exert and not losing any of them. It's also eligible to come back with crop-mate.

gebell on R/w hoomans

I was thinking about something similar and like this deck. Right now I'm building G/W humans, and the synergies make me tempted to try all three colors, but it gets crowded.

In theorycrafting I feel like I would rather have the Devoted Crop-Mate mainboard in place of the Metallic Mimic and Thalia, Heretic Cathar. I also think I'd up the Bloodlust Inciter by one, and tick the Hanweir Garrison down one.

But all of that would require some play to really see how it feels.
