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.

Are you looking for suggestions? I personally love token decks and have several made. I have a green white token deck with Trostani as my commander. Some of the recommendations I would make would be Sigil Captain gives plus one to creatures that are 1/1, Emmara Tandris protects your tokens, Juniper Order Ranger also gives bonus to tokens and itself, True Conviction gives all creatures double-strike and lifelink. These are just some thoughts.

Thanks for commenting, everyone! Always good to have input.

The only reason I don't have Doubling Season in here is the price tag. I accept its absolute superiority over Primal Vigor, but I just don't want to add $60 to an already expensive deck. So Primal Vigor is a budget option for me.

S1ayerMonkey I do love Emmara Tandris, but I feel like she works better in Modern than EDH. I'm not super concerned with damage to my tokens because 90% of the time I'll be winning with so many tokens it won't matter if they take damage. I had her in an earlier version of this deck, but took her out in favor of some removal spells.

enpc How would you suggest I improve my ramp package? I'd be interested to know what suggestions you have.

This may not be the most popular suggestion, but I do recommend including Emmara Tandris if you're playing selesnya tokens. She would be a good candidate to equip your Lightning Greaves to.
