Elusive Krasis Discussion

Sylvan Caryatid is important to get mana setup and I believe should be a staple in a bant defender deck. It is a defenders deck's Birds of Paradise . The hexproof makes it hard to remove and it can be targeted by it's controller "unlike creatures with shroud." This means Assault Formation can target it. Other cards that may help your strategy are Shape the Sands , and these four creatures even though they don't have defender Abzan Beastmaster , Benthic Infiltrator , Elusive Krasis and Dragon's Eye Savants .

I like this, reminds me of playing during the Gatecrash block, its got some flavor. Maybe another card you could consider is Elusive Krasis as a large blocker and also a good attacker. Nice deck mang.

albino_ninja, I like the Elusive Krasis, however as far as Tower Defense goes my reason for using it in the deck is for finishing the game fast after playing Assault Formation. Also it's fairly amusing when I use it with the seemingly random Blighted Agent to suddenly win.

Actually I using Pongify and Rapid Hybridization on my own creatures with makes them big very fast. It basic strategy of this deck conception. Casting those spells on enemy creatures of course makes this deck slower, but also gets rid of big threat like infinite combos (on creatures) etc.
For more hate on tokens or annoying permaments I also have Echoing Truth in sideboard. It's more than Vapor Snag, but it also more flexible and powerful and it's the same CMC slot as counter spells I using which makes it more comfortable to use and more difficult for opponents to predict.
I had Avatar of the Resolute in earlier conception of this deck, extremaly based on +1/+1 counters and trigering Evolve, but now I have not enough Evolve creatures to make it works.
With Boon Satyr game is nearly ended with him on board. Elusive Krasis is slow in compere to him. Zero power at the beggining, no flash ability to cast him eventually instead casting counter spell or something. Of course Elusive Krasis can grow and it's unblockabe, but it's still oriented on late game.
Shambleshark is good. I was thinking about putting him on deck, but finally I took Plaxmanta instead for some extra protection, and it works well.
Zameck Guildmage is the hardest choise. Warriors' Lesson works well in term of drawing cards, but I have a little efect that makes my undying creatures repetable. I must make several tests to decide what to do about him.
