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

2 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?


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.


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

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.

Whatever happened to our beloved 0 and 1 drops? Our Ornithopter, Phyrexian Walker, Shield Sphere, Tasseled Dromedary, Yoked Ox, and Disowned Ancestor will feel jealous. Also, what of our beautiful Abzan friend, Sandsteppe Citadel? you surely didn't forget THAT, did you? Plus, I would like you to consider the beautiful art of the Dragons of Tarkir Evolving Wilds over the same boring old Terramorphic Expanse. Oh yeah, and what of the lovely Trees? The Tree of Redemption and, especially, the Tree of Perdition? Thank you for taking the time to read my feedback, and I hope you include one or more of my ideas in your deck! I'm actually building a deck similar to this one right now! a definite +1.

Shaderik on Hold dem gates! (Budget control with a twist)

Why Sorin, Lord of Innistrad??? he is absoluty useless??

After some tries:

.) i absoluty recommend Garruk Wildspeaker

  • +1: mana is always needed !!! (so it works as a 2CMC->"Converted mana cost" Planeswalker)
  • -1: solid creature
  • -4: (can be actived turn 2 after summoning) = another win condition !!! Amazing DMG BOOST

.) 2 Wall of Omens instead of Disowned Ancestor

.) 2 times Forest (cut 1xOrzhov Guildgate)

Conclusion: Hold dem gates! Budget control

Postmortal_Pop on The Best Offense...

I run a version of this with the only main difference being Disowned Ancestor and Behind the Scenes. Ancestors is a fantastic blocker on turn 1 and fallowing it with Assault Formation means you're swinging with a 4/4 on turn 2. Behind the scenes means the most of your creatures are straight unblockable. Ancestors also have a cheap outlast, which you can use as a mana dump.

justavictim82 on Sultai Devoid Assault Formation

Update 1/18 - Still working on lands and getting minimal ETB effects as possible

+3 Grim Contest MB - I liked the idea of having more MB removal and this definitely fit the deck

-1 Disowned Ancestor - Wasn't needed as a one of. I would rather play Vessel of Nascency T1 and pass

Silumgar, the Drifting Death to SB. I still like the card here for now especially against Control, Tokens and maybe Humans

Removed Sultai Charm from SB - not enough value at 3 CMC and can be tricky to cast

Removed Scrapheap Scrounger - I like the card but it really doesn't fit here

Removed Shape the Sands - As I said earlier... it was win more

Added 3x Glint to SB. Much better than Shape because Hexproof matters. Starting in SB may be maindecked depending on meta

Added 2x Kin-Tree Invocation - I like the idea of having a back up plan and the opponent seeing a 5/5 or 6/6 T3 if I don't have Assault. Between the token and Endless One it gives me flexibility.

I finally got a little spare cash to throw into this deck, more changes are to come in the future including a better mana base but the cuts helped remove cards that didn't quite live up to their expectations and the additions give much more consistency to the deck.
