What are your methods for "abusing" his proliferate ability. He has to die for the ability to trigger, which means you are letting him go to the graveyard instead of using the commander's replacement affect and putting him in the command zone.

I think you should think of ways to abuse him while he's on the board instead of hoping he will die and getting a single trigger. Progenitor Mimic , Rite of Replication , Followed Footsteps , Back from the Brink , and any clones are great with this commander to really abuse the effect.

There are a few ways.

Contagion Clasp and Inexorable Tide have proliferate, which would increase the age counters on Herald of Leshrac .

Paradox Haze adds an additional upkeep, which can increase the effect of Herald. Paradox can be copied by Estrid's Invocation , Copy Enchantment , or Clever Impersonator .

As Foretold , Aether Vial , and Braid of Fire (if Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir or Leyline of Anticipation is in play) could help cheat him onto the field for less mana than hard-casting him

Clever Impersonator or Followed Footsteps can copy Herald and amplify his land-stealing effect even more. Followed Footsteps can amplify it even more with additional copies of Herald over time or with additional upkeeps from Paradox

Anything that affects card-draw easily affects the chances of drawing Herald, and there are quite a few cards that do that in the deck.

Brutal_B on Tide of Rot, A Tale of Lust for the Grave

Thanks a lot ThallionDarkshine. As far as focus goes, it's pretty simple: I just want to have my graveyard be an extension of my hand and be able to play "answers" to pesky permanents. I'd rather not spend over $20 on a single card.

I chose to run 33 lands cuz I found myself "fetching" lands often and even more often with Muldrotha on the board. I don't cast her until my graveyard has a good amount of permanents in it anyway so I'm not worried about playing her asap. I do tend to cycle some lands for draw when the opportunity arises cuz I know I will play them later from the yard. Circuitous Route , Burnished Hart , Sakura-Tribe Elder , and Shefet Monitor all help with a bit of ramp.

I like the idea of Manglehorn replacing Acid Web Spider , and Noxious Dragon is merely a place holder as I found it in my bulk and threw it in. Both spider and dragon are mainly flying blockers with a lil bonus; but I do agree that they are mana spendy.

I did splash a bit of sacrificing in cuz why not? Caustic Caterpillar and Thrashing Brontodon (removal), Burnished Hart and Sakura-Tribe Elder (land), Scribe of the Mindful to get back some value instant/sorcery, and some more options. Plus you put Sylvok Lifestaff on a creature before you sac it for the proverbial icing. Sac outlets also include Bone Splinters , Ruthless Disposal , Victimize , Burnished Hart , Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord and Whisper, Blood Liturgist . And the sacrificing trigger from Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip! Then turn around and cast those sacrificees from the yard which would trigger Desecrated Tomb for more sac fodder, chumps, or aerial assualt.

I have to mention a great pairing: Ravenous Chupacabra enchanted with Followed Footsteps . I was contemplating putting Progenitor Mimic in as well.

This was a bit winded but this is the jist of the deck. It's not a fast starter but chugs along just fine when it picks up momentum. I'm aware there are a few kinks to work out and thus the reason I called for help. I appreciate any and all feedback, so again.. thank you!

triproberts12 on Sprite Might: Faerie Swarm

You could use more Faeries. Typically, you want to go for a minimum of 30 tribe members in a tribal EDH deck. You might also want Muddle the Mixture , Dimir Infiltrator , and Shred Memory to grab your Oona's Blackguard and Bitterblossom , seeing as the deck really ticks with those two cards in play. Along those lines, Notorious Throng and Knowledge Exploitation are also good. You also need more early-game ramp. Talisman of Dominance and Dimir Signet seem like givens.

As for what to cut, Cryptic Gateway doesn't make a whole lot of sense. It's a 5 mana artifact that lets you tap two creatures to play a card with a maximum CMC of 4. Likewise, I love Rite of Replication as a card, but what are you copying that's worth the mana? Followed Footsteps seems awfully mediocre, and Tree of Perdition doesn't seem to go great with a deck that's going to be slowly draining the opponents over a number of turns. You also seem to be pretty heavy on creature removal. Do you really need Cast Down, Doom Blade, Murder, Go For the Throat, Tragic Slip, and Imprisoned in the Moon with three Wraths and Control Magic?

0megaShinryu on Riku of Many Biovisionaries

2 months ago

Here are the cards I recommend:

1.) Doubling Season it's pricey but can't get better for tokens.

2.) Followed Footsteps will help pull off the Biovisionary alt win.

3.) Nexus of Fate great way to profit off Riku and its reusable since it shuffles back in

EmEcks on Galina: Good artists copy, great artists steal

3 months ago

@DavePeachtree, you mention that if it's legendary you can't clone it. What if you could? If you run Mirror Gallery, then you can take what you want and make as many clones of them as you want.

"Oh, is that a Sheoldred, Whispering One? Don't mind if I do, and let me kick a Rite of Replication targeting her as well."

Also, if you had a Chief of the Foundry, you could play a Phyrexian Metamorph copying nothing, then rite of replication it to copy 5 things or Followed Footsteps to make one every turn and copy something else. If the mirror gallery is in play, you can be copying whatever thing you want multiple times each turn, even if it's the same Legendary thing multiple times.

KeelHaul10 on Etrata Unleashed; I SHUSH you!

Thank you to everyone for the suggestions!

Avacidal_maniac and WhichKing: My meta has a lot of decks that play huge legendary threats, so playing cards like Followed Footsteps or Rite of Replication work two-fold. Copy a threat, or with mirror gallery out, I can make a buttload of Etrata's or huge enemy threats.

Neotrup on If I make Gilded Lotus ...

Auras are put into the graveyard as a state based action if they are enchanting something they can't legally enchant. That is, Followed Footsteps will fall off if it's enchanting something that's not a creature, so you won't get tokens.
