Footsteps of the Goryo Discussion

TriusMalarky on Who need winning anyway??

xD YES! If it weren't above my budget I'd order this right now!

Just to say "Flip you, you're already running some janky $1k netdeck, I'm just gonna spread the love back to you so you can't play Magic EITHER you scum" to netdeckers.

Although, if you really want to lose T1, there are better ways. Leveler hacked into play early with, say, a combo deck using Through the Breach and/or Footsteps of the Goryo as well as using some of the pactslike the removal and counterspell one, as well as the creature tutor one just to summon up Progenitus or something and then lose(or frickin Llanowar Elves) as well as the Negotiation one just to mess with them...

Animate Dead, Exhume, Footsteps of the Goryo, Necromancy, Reanimate, Unearth, Death, and Victimize are all the type of cards necessary for a reanimator build so you can bring back your best card from the graveyard. You would also need plenty of ways to put cards into your yard. Like shadow63 said, Grislebrand is the number one card to reanimate.... but there are other awesome options like Massacre Wurm and It That Betrays, but those are still a bit pricey. As are the best reanimator spells. That is why I would suggest going more midrange for you

theLeyzin I love what you're doing here. I do think, however you should include a few other cheaper reanimation spells for back up in case Bladewing's CMC gets too high.Exhume, Animate Dead, Phyrexian Reclamation and Footsteps of the Goryo, are some cheaper options to consider. I'd say add Necromancy too, but I didn't realize it went up. Definite +1

Hey, i'm having doubts here, how do you use de Griselbrand or another big creature like that, if Footsteps of the Goryo does not give haste? Wouldn't be nice to have something like Expedite or change the Footsteps of the Goryo for the reanimate or Dawn of the dead (for legacy) or Unburial Rites for modern.

Here is a primer I made, I have a friend playing it and he wants to finish building it but it has Goryo's Vengeance, which my main deck I play but it's not a cheap card anymore. However! It's little brother Footsteps of the Goryo isn't expensive. Gishath, Sun's Avatar and Nezahal, Primal Tide are both pretty insane for their interactions with it , and the other haste Dino. But this is a primer it's not set in stone, plenty of room to toy with. Hopefully that gives you some ideas and hope for your modern Dinos :)

You actually gave me a thought of Footsteps of the Goryo to reanimate and "Flash" Hulk.

SynergyBuild, thank you for all the suggestions! Goblin Lore is really sweet, the discarding at random has been really fun with tibalt and digs deeper than my other looters. I have actually had a lot of success with the Obzedat, Ghost Councils as the opponent normally has to deal with them immediately before it gets out of hand. It's the best target for Footsteps of the Goryo and it's an easy discard choice. Also, Iname, Death Aspect can filter them all out of the deck, thinning it and letting us draw more of our bombs.

I agree with your Duress suggestion. It has been underwhelming at best, (Despise would be a little better) but I could fit in something else.

For the mana base, I have had pretty good success with just 20. Since there is so much looting, I usually never have trouble hitting 5+ mana. I do like the idea of going up on white sources and increasing Lingering Souls as that card does work.

Thanks again for the tips! It has been surprisingly fun to pilot and the budget Through the Breach/Goryo's Vengeance feel has been awesome for 60 bucks. Let me know how you edit yours and the results! :D
