Lexis136 on Bear Hug, like Group Hug but with BEARS

3 weeks ago

well, now that there has been a new Bear printed, i hope you understand that it's time to remove Blue from this deck. Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma demands that he is your new general!

replace Distant Melody with Mouth // feed

replace Kindred Discovery with Vanquisher's Banner

and i'm sure there are other great cards

Aphetto Dredging and Distant Melody could also be solid additions.

The Immortal Sun is going to be great in every deck, ever. A generic cost-reducer that draws cards and buffs all of your creatures? Definitely a solid include, if you want to use it.

Also considering replacing Shard Convergence with Hour of Promise. Hour will let you take ANY two lands and put them straight to the battlefield. Nonbasics included. Fixes 90% of all mana problems you might have, so long as you have an open green mana.

I apologize if my suggestions seem spammy, just really love Dragons and Tribal EDH.

Cathartic Reunion would be a good replacement for Wild Guess, It's easier to trigger and fits the discard-draw theme.

If you're looking for good card draw, try Distant Melody or Keep Watch.

I personally enjoy using Inner Fire along with Battle Hymn for tonnes of mana before ~killing~ the other players.

If you want to use The Locust God to your advantage, you might wanna attempt using Purphoros, God of the Forge and Impact Tremors.

A nice infinite combo that I run is Skullclamp and Ashnod's Altar, Sac 1 insect to Ashnod's, use 1 mana to make 2 locusts and draw 2, continue this cycle to obtain as much mana as there are (cards in your deck)/2

Saljen on Slivers, because I've always wanted to

Cryptolith Rite is a pretty solid way to shore up your mana, basically copy 3 of Manaweft Sliver/Gemhide Sliver.

In the same vein, Mirari's Wake really helps to ramp up, both your mana base and your creatures.

Herald's Horn lowers the cost of your Slivers and provides repeatable draw. Very useful.

Phyrexian Reclamation is a repeatable way to return cards from your graveyard.

Shared Animosity doesn't affect your opponents creatures, like Coat of Arms does.

Spirit of Resistance works great with 5c commanders. In particular, it's an amazing combo with Sliver Hivelord.

Paradox Engine gives you essentially an unlimited combo with Sliver Overlord, letting you put all of the Slivers in your entire library into play if you've got Manaweft Sliver/Gemhide Sliver/Cryptolith Rite in play. Even if you don't have the combo pieces in play, it can provide a ton of value.

Distant Melody and Wheel of Fortune are such good draw cards that they're hard to pass up.

I too play a Sliver EDH deck, so these are some suggestions that I've learned from experience can be rather powerful.

Faceless_Being on Fun-Time Arcades

I was thinking about brewing this incarnation of Arcades because Wall Tribal! Anyways I do have some suggestions mate, hope they help!

Card Draw

  • Distant Melody: This card is a very good draw engine if you find yourself able to keep a few Walls on the field when you use it. Only downside is it's a dead draw when the battlefield is being well controlled via removal.

  • Rhystic Study: A draw staple, Study is great for being a fast early play and possibly net you a decent amount of cards. However it becomes a target and eats removal fast but if you can score even 2+ cards via it's ability its worth it I'm

  • Dictate of Kruphix: A personal favorite of mine due to it's ability to be flashed in, Dictate is a card that also can help your rapport with the table seeing as how it helps everyone.

  • Slate of Ancestry: Okay now this one is a hit or miss but I personally love it in decks where the average CMC is low and the deck contains enough creatures to care about the Slates ability. I'd say at least try it out and tell me what you think.

P/T Buffs

  • Solidarity: This card is nearly unplayable under normal circumstances but in this list the buff for isn't necessarily bad yet not the greatest. Good for testing but who knows.

  • Assault Formation: I highly recommend wiggling this in your list somehow because this little enchantment will help keep your attackers online if Arcades keeps getting removed. The fact it also allows you access to a board wide buff effect is just added creme.

I'd add more but I have to wrap this up for now. Will comment again soon with more suggestions bro
