Disowned Ancestor Discussion

i24 on My Big Fat Doran Wedding

2 weeks ago

As Grunyarth said, both Yoked Ox and Tasseled Dromedary are great.In my own Doran deck (Doran's Gonna Get Your Head Kicked In) I play both of them, and also Disowned Ancestor, Lagonna-Band Trailblazer and Nyx-Fleece Ram.

Although similar, I think Grizzled Leotau is not as good as the rest because it's mana cost is pretty specific, but it's nice too.

I don't think Sapling of Colfenor is very useful because there are about 25 other creatures in your deck so once in 4 turns, you gain about 3 life and draw a card. Without this ability, it's "just" a 5/5 indestructible, but when you practically can cast a 4/4 in turn 1, sapling is quite useless.

Rhox Faithmender is awesome.

NV_1980 on Warrior at heart

3 weeks ago

Damn you're right, I also find it extremely hard to cut something from your selection. For Chromatic Lantern and/or Prismatic Omen I'd cut out the banners (though for some reason that just feels a bit wrong, warriors without large banners ...). I would let Radha, after long long long consideration, replace Disowned Ancestor.

Changelog:

-Disowned Ancestor, Birds of Paradise, Primal Druid, Druid of the Cowl.

+Fruit of the First Tree, Ulvenwald Observer, Aetherflux Reservoir, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim.

After playing tonight, I found there is not much card draw. I'm fresh out of Phyrexian Arenas, so the Observer is the next best thing I have.I also found I was on over 100 life for most of the night, so Ayli and Reservoir get a trial.

Twilight Shepherd is best friends with Teysa.

Baleful Eidolon early defense, and boosting to boot.

Belfry Spirit was made for teysa's ability.

Bygone Bishop gives great drawpower.

Celestial Kirin can be rediculously fun.

Crypt Ghast, ramp and extort, anyone?

Disowned Ancestor good early blocker that can grow.

Divinity of Pride just amazing!

Drogskol Cavalry makes spirits ang goves you life for it.

Ghost Council of Orzhova the OG Orzhov baddie.

Ghostblade Eidolon two words: double strike...

He Who Hungers hand-hate

Hopeful Eidolon early lifegain and boosting.

Infernal Kirin more hand hate

Kami of False Hope my favourite white 1-drop, and for a good reason.

Karlov of the Ghost Council if you have a subtheme of lifegain, then this guys is the BOMB

Kataki, War's Wage if you're not big on artifacts yourself, this guys is fantastic.

Kokusho, the Evening Star just amazing

Kyoki, Sanity's Eclipse even better hand hate

Lantern Kami cheap early air-control

Myojin of Cleansing Fire might be expensive, but I had to mention him.

Nikko-Onna solid enchantment hate

Obzedat, Ghost Council they're back. And better

Oyobi, Who Split the Heavens big beefy tokens? Yes please!

Revered Dead early awesome defense

Seizan, Perverter of Truth extra cards, at a price

Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker can turn things like Kami of False Hope into an endless loop.

To be continued...

Flagellum on Doran's Spring: 'Tis the Season of Big Butts

4 months ago

MagicalHacker: Should I attempt to squeeze in Guiltfeeder? What's funny with him in a Doran deck is he deals double damage, once if he isn't blocked depending on how many cards are in someone's GY and then 4 damage due to Doran's ability. Not the greatest early game but can itself be a finisher. I've NO idea what to take out though. Spidersilk Armor?

Removed:

Grizzled Leotau: Vanilla

Disowned Ancestor: vanilla

Yoked Ox: vanilla

Tasseled Dromedary: vanilla

Blessed Orator: buff is lackluster.

Kitsune Loreweaver: vanilla, lackluster/conditional mana sink.

Loxodon Wayfarer: vanilla.

Added:

Noetic Scales: more high power creature punishment.

Tangle Angler: wincon

Yotian Soldier: vigilance baby!

Raving Dead: wincon (aka Quietus Spike with legs).

Solidarity: wincon

Standing Troops: vigilance

Selvala, Explorer Returned: draw and ramp.

Flagellum on Doran's Spring: 'Tis the Season of Big Butts

4 months ago

Thank you MagicalHacker!

I perused the list you linked and have found some goodies that were appealing. To keep the curve tight so I'm dropping a critter or two a turn I've opted for the 3 CMC guys listed unless the effect was too good.

Mentor might make his way in. Shirei is interesting but my creatures lack ETB effects.

Possible Includes

Myr Welder: a 1/4 for 3CMC. Offers artifact gy hate and could be quite useful if it stwals the right ability.

Order of Whiteclay: Sun Titan's lil bro. Not as good with vigilance.

Orzhov Advokist: this plays into my anti-power control element. If they keep pumping their best threats then they will stay tapped. Also acts as a deterrent.

Palace Guard: just a decent effect.

Raving Dead: this guy should probably be in the deck. Great with or without evasion. Doran makes him an effective 6/6.

Sanctum Guardian: nice little protection against big splashy spells or critters.

Scholar of Athreos: late game mana sink?

Selvala, Explorer Returned: ramp and card draw on a 2/4. Pretty decent

Standing Troops: bc vigilance with Doran is hilarious

Vampire Envoy: evasive beater with negligent lifegain.

Village Bell-Ringer: gives my guys pseudo vigilance

Yotian Soldier: vigilance beater

Task Force: infinite toughness with Lightning Greaves and another random critter.

Tangle Angler: Priests of Norn v2.0.

Vanilla/Possible Cuts

Yoked Ox

Tasseled Dromedary

Grizzled Leotau

Disowned Ancestor

Kitsune Loreweaver

Loxodon Wayfarer

Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper

Tower Defense/Bar the Door: cute overrun effects. Could win the game in the right setup. Iffy on cutting.

While Kami of Old Stone and Indomitable Ancients are vanilla, the value they carry outweighs that fact.
