Flametongue Kavu Discussion

Always a sucker for some sweet ninjas. +1 from me.

However, you run four Nightveil Specter and no ways of generating mana of any color? I've found Shimmering Grotto and Unknown Shores to be infinitely useful in mana fixing for colors you don't even play. Shouldn't slow down this deck too much either.

Trust me, it's worth it for the face when you cast their Flametongue Kavu on Turn 4.

Love it. Had to trim some just so it wasn't a huge card-dump.
Taurean Mauler - gets very big, and helps players learn to pay attention to triggers
Silklash Spider - anti-flyers
Valley Rannet - smooth land plays
Krosan Tusker - great value Hoard-Smelter Dragon - utility + big threat
Garruk's Packleader - excellent value with your creatures
Flametongue Kavu - ease of use + utility
Acidic Slime - ditto
Fires of Yavimaya - haste is clutch for you
Hull Breach - some much needed utility

shaistyone on Animar creatures around?

Seeing this reminds me of one of my favorite things about EDH. There are so many ways of doing things; I have a completely different take on Animar, and there are so few cards in common here that it is awesome. Bouncy EDH 2.0

First thing, Ancestral Statue is key to most Animar decks as it quickly yields an infinitely large Animar. Other than that, consider some bounce tech. I use it in mine to combo off, but for you it would be just as good with all the ETB effects you have. Something like Conjurer's Closet could be really clutch.

Other than that, more value is always good. the more you can shift spell-effects like burn/counters to creatures, the better off you will be with Animar. Draining Whelk, Flametongue Kavu, etc...

Flametongue Kavu is really powerful for repeatable removal. Also, 4 power makes for a nice creature to hastily send to your opponent each turn.

Molten Primordial has a powerful etb that not only removes blockers, but also creates more attackers for you each turn.

Mindclaw Shaman rips apart opponents' hands by creating tokens of it every turn.

Fanatic of Mogis is a wincon if you have enough devotion.

Bogardan Hellkite has a powerful etb that wipes out token armies or can take out a single big creature.

Tuktuk Scrapper is a better card than Manic Vandal for artifact destruction. Creating a token copy of it means both will trigger and destroy artifacts; plus, they deal damage as an upside.

Emrakul's Hatcher grants you every time you make a token copy of it, which is pretty powerful mana ramping.

Other powerful cards to consider: Skullclamp, Warstorm Surge, Myr Battlesphere.

Came here from the Tap Tap Concede video. Never played Highlander, but this is something I"d want to play. Here are some suggestions that might be worth considering.

Would Spitebellows be better than Flametongue Kavu in this deck since it's cheaper and has evoke so it will die causing triggers to happen? It also deals 6 damage over 4. The downside is it requires two red over one. Could just run both.

Disciple of Bolas is another sac outlet that is also a human for Xathrid Necromancer.

Scourge of Nel Toth is another sac outlet that also replaces one of the creatures.

Tuktuk the Explorer is another creature that replaces itself, dies to Skullclamp, and attacks well with the Grafted Wargear.

Nether Traitor is another recursion creature like Bloodsoaked Champion that can get in damage with shadow if needed.

The Wellsprings would be a good start, with Ichor Wellspring, and Mycosynth Wellspring.

Panharmonicon is a must in most flicker decks, especially if you plan on making use of both artifacts and creatures.

Astral Slide, while demanding a lot of cycling cards, is pretty cool as repeatable, on-demand blink.

Brago, King Eternal doesn't care what kind of permanent you want blinked, he'll still blink it.

Spine of Ish Sah/Duplicant are hard removal, and spine is damn near unkillable as well.

Ethersworn Shieldmage blocks any combat damage, or Blasphemous Act effects from killing your artifact creatures, which makes Blasphemous Act a one-side boardwipe for you.

Then Flametongue Kavu, Solemn Simulacrum, and Archaeomancer are all pretty self explanatory blink creatures.

Creature - Beast

When ~ enters the battlefield, you gain 3 life.

When ~ leaves the battlefield, create a 3/3 red Beast creature token with haste.


Is this good enough? Maybe Flametongue Kavu would be better. Make a green removal spell that doesn't involve fighting or dealing damage equal to power or toughness.
