Dripping-Tongue Zubera Discussion
2 months ago
xelal: I've heard of zubera combo deck in pauper and maybe there is something from there that you could use if you were to want to include Dripping-Tongue Zubera. I'm not really familiar in any other non-conventional combos that you are looking for unfortunately. I do like the suggestion of command beacon although I'm trying not to add another colorless source to my mana base. Wishclaw Talisman is a maybe, I have enough concentration of tutors to get to the combo reliably.
freeze92: Corpse dance is a pet card of mine that I will probably see how it fairs in the deck. Cheers.

I am building Tayam as more of an all in combo deck, I can find a million sac outlets and creatures that etb with tokens tor counters to feed Tayam but I'm having a bit of trouble finding a high enough density of things that make infinite mana, so I was wondering if you know of any pieces that are a little less obvious than devoted druid, altars, priest of gix and thornbite staff. Also, I was thinking that Sustaining Spirit and Command Beacon would be good in the deck. And Dripping-Tongue Zubera as an addition to hallowed spiritkeeper and caller of the claw, if anyone wanted a third of that style of effect.
I also agree with Kthululu about Wishclaw Talisman or maybe even Maralen of the Mornsong. As for the discard discussion, I have a Mind Slash as a useful sac outlet even though it cost a mana to activate because it can weaken. Lastly I like Gideon of the Trials but it is a bit cute.

Phantom Tiger should be better than Harbinger of Spring because it survives more removals and battles and if you manage to give it +1/+1 (with an equipment or aura card) you make it to a creature that can only be killed with destory or exil effects.Harbinger of Spring just cost to much to cast (damm that soulshift Tax).
6 CMC Creatures are too hard to play without reanimation so you should forgett about Moss Kami
Dripping-Tongue Zubera is a worse Doomed traveler for Spirit Tribal but still replaces itself.
Traproot Kami won't work against that many decks because it is just a wall. It belong more in the Sideboard than the main Deck. It dodges a lot of Lightning Bolt and similar stuff (but only in late game) and might block Delver of Secrets Flip butit's still quite slow.
Your sideboard missing interactions with artifacts and enchantments, Wear Away could work if you want to play on the Splice Ability a bit and Rending Vines could also remove a lot of cards (especially with the low curve of pauper) and it draws a card.
Uproot is quite expensive to take your opponent one turn back regarding lands. You mostly sacrifice your own turn to use it and many blue decks jsut respond with Gush to refill their hand. it might work against Bogle decks that enchant their land (Utopia Sprawl/Abundant Growth to ramp or fix mana (play about 18 lands) but they won't make the mistake of enchanting the same land with all enchantment more than once unless they draw nothing but one land. Still that would be a one trick pony that mostly comes to late into play.
As far as I can tell you rather want to interact during combat and battle tricks, which makes Kodama's Might (because of Splice) quite appealing just like Roar of Jukai which is easy to splice and is able to interact with Shinen of Life's Roar
But I have to say you've choosen a theme which is pretty hard to build in pauper (competetive).

@Xica, Cloudstone Curio doesn't actually do anything for the combo as it just returns a creature to my hand, and the Zubera's function on going from the battle field to the graveyard.
Arcane Adaptation doesn't add much either, not only would I needs spots for it, I'd need creature's to get the change as well. While it would boost the Spirit tokens from Dripping-Tongue Zubera I get the same effect and a sac outlet for the same cost with Mirror Entity

although i just realized that Dripping-Tongue Zubera's the only one that makes tokens lol. That makes it harder, but playing Ember-Fist Zuberas in place of the Floating-Dreams would help kill the opponent the turn you drop the Immortal Servitude. But maybe Arcane Adaptation from Ixalan can make the plan more effective? Metallic Mimic can come into play as a Zubera, and is conveniently cmc 2 so that would power up the number of tokens you can get from Dripping-Tongue.

Pauper spirits with Tortured Existence is fun, especially using cards like Plagued Rusalka along with cards like Ashen-Skin Zubera, Dripping-Tongue Zubera and Floating-Dream Zubera. Thief of Hope is a great engine for life drain and getting spirits back to the hand.

As much as going 3 colors seems to be a good idea, I have to say, Dripping-Tongue Zubera has proven to be extremely strong in playtesting in my deck. Following a boardwipe with a Consume Spirit on the leftover tokens is damn powerful.
Also, you may want to look at Killing Wave as a main or sideboard card. In my deck, I can usually manage to get it up to 3 or 4, thus hitting my opponent for somewhere between 6 and 9 damage or wipe their board as the zuberas would kill them if they paid.

I completely misunderstood how the sac mechanic works. I thought sac triggers stacked and I could regenerate after a sac. Silly noob.
I got rid of those effects for cheap the cheap token feeders, Dripping-Tongue Zubera and Young Wolf. Dripping-Tongue Zubera excites me because in a perfect world it could provide, what, 15 sac tokens?
