Emmara Tandris Discussion

Given our convo regarding the focus of this deck being 'All the Tokens', this may be a long write-up. I'll try to break it up. This comment will look at creatures.

The great: Armada Wurm, Hornet Queen, Jazal Goldmane, Mycoloth, Seedborn Muse, Shanna, Sisay's Legacy, Tendershoot Dryad, Wilt-Leaf Liege, Wolfbriar Elemental. Each of these support your strategy directly and have early & late game presence.

The Good: Ant Queen, Bramble Sovereign, Shalai, Voice of Plenty. These offer mid to late game relevance as well as give mana sinks while supporting your strat.

The 'Meh': Oracle of Mul Daya, Tolsimir Wolfblood, Voice of Resurgence. Though these have game relevance in various ways, they may be slots to upgrade.

The Bad: Archon of Valor's Reach doesn't fit with the strat and feels like a 'win-more' or 'lockout' card, Emmara Tandris insulating tokens (the one thing you can make endless amounts of anyway) from damage doesn't seem like it's worth 7 mana/a whole turn to do, Kazandu Tuskcaller is a 1/1 you need to sink 6 mana into before you can get a single 3/3 per turn, Yeva, Nature's Herald only has relevance early game and she doesn't really fit with tokens.

The Ugly: Copperhorn Scout is a very fragile '1-turn' kind of creature and there are better/more efficient ways to accomplish this like Brave the Sands for example, Elvish Mystic & Fyndhorn Elves & Llanowar Elves having ramp on creatures like these is simply not the way you want to ramp.

The only ones left I believe ate your 2 Soul Wardens. They could/will/do gain a bunch of life, so if that is important then keep them.

You know, after The Unspeakable disaster that was Emmara Tandris, I hope they make a new, much better version of her that ensures she doesn't punch an elephant to death...oh wait! She was leaked as a championship promo! Too bad I can't post the image, considering it was leaked. I'll just send you guys to the MTGS post to save myself from being axed from the site.

Arzdruun, Sworn to Sengir

Legendary Creature - Vampire Minotaur

Haste, First Strike

Other Minotaurs you control have Haste.

If you have one or fewer cards in hand, Minotaurs you control have +2/+0, First Strike, and "Whenever this creature deals damage to a player, each player discards a card."


Their spiritualism forgotten under Arzdruun's command, the Anaba became Baron Sengir's finishing touch in conquering Ulgrotha.

Minotaurs want to be really big, since the only reason anyone would play them is Didgeridoo. That said, I wonder if Arzdruun here could take my beefy bois into Legacy. I know my Minotaur deck would love this guy, at least.

Make a usable card that might have its home plane as Ulgrotha/Homelands... or not. If that's too much of a task, make a better Emmara Tandris.

I would recommend cutting Emmara Tandris - she is expensive and slow and her ability does not do enough. If you want that effect, try and get an Avacyn, Angel of Hope.

I would also look at adding more lower cost ramp cards - Birds of Paradise, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Llanowar Elves - these all help speed up the deck. Devoted Druid is not cheap, but is really good with Shalai as you can get a bunch of +1/+1 counters on druid and then trade them all for a lot of mana. Adding Vizier of Remedies to the mix gives you infinite green, which gives you infinite +1/+1 counters.

I would also look at more card advantage. Green/White struggles in this area, however you have options like Mentor of the Meek, Green Sun's Zenith, Chord of Calling, Eladamri's Call, even Selvala, Explorer Returned.

If you can get one, Eternal Witness is much better than both Nature's Spiral and Recollect and Noxious Revival is better than Reclaim.

Shliken Thx! Legendary god creatures are always awesome and this deck definitely could need some more ramp. Emmara Tandris is just in my side deck because most of my tokens usually don't die from normal combat damage :)

Have you considered Karametra, God of Harvests for both ramp as well as a pretty hefty chunk of lifegain when she ETBs? Also, Emmara Tandris is great for token decks! Good luck!

For a populate deck, the majority of your tokens are pretty small. Cards like Phyrexian Rebirth make big tokens which are better to populate.

Also, Emmara Tandris is bad, this should be an Avacyn, Angel of Hope instead.
