JAPuckett85 on Cat Scratch Fever - Arahbo EDH

1 minute ago

I mentioned my WonderCats deck in a previous comment, but let me elaborate a bit with some of my own thoughts, if I may? First off, some things I really like in your deck: Dawn Charm, Chameleon Colossus, Skyhunter Skirmisher, Skyhunter Prowler, Regal Caracal, Hunter's Insight, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Duelist's Heritage, Lost Leonin, Adorned Pouncer, & Rancor are all awesome additions! Some amazing cats that are glaringly absent are Mirri, Cat Warrior & Brimaz, King of Oreskos, both of which I would include in any Cat-deck. If you are going to keep Grafted Exoskeleton, one of the best cats you could run is Leonin Abunas. If you re-vamp for more of the equipment theme at any point, I would definitely include Abunas, as well as Balan, Wandering Knight, Sigarda's Aid, Steelshaper's Gift, Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith / Hammer of Nazahn, & even Stonehewer Giant & Puresteel Paladin. Kemba, Kha Regent is ok, as is Leonin Shikari, but the other cards I mentioned have proven more significant when going with the equip theme. Some things have removed: Pride Sovereign is great in theory, but too slow & vulnerable in practice. Leonin Relic-Warder puts a big fat target on himself when he enters, which does cause that player to use up resources targeting him, but then you and that player just fall behind the other people at the table and he eventually gets his stuff back (& I don't think it gives enough of a tempo swing to warrant a slot). Wily Bandar is terrible imo. Watchers of the Dead, too, & same with Whitemane Lion (unless you have some ETB abilities to abuse). Have you considered using Vedalken Orrery or Sun Titan? Both seem like they would work very well in your current build. Angelic Destiny would be sweet with this recurring-enchantment-theme, as would Sterling Grove. Herald's Horn is actually very good for any tribal deck (it's basically card draw & ramp, in one card!). I would replace Mana Confluence with Brushland, which is strictly-better in a Selesnya deck since it can tap for colorless without dealing damage. Sylvan Library is the card I am always most eager to draw by turn 2 in every game, & I would highly HIGHLY recommend getting it. Sensei's Divining Top is also pretty awesome. Late game, my best top-deck by far is Genesis Wave. GET IT. USE IT. Wins games all by itself. Gilded Lotus would probably work well here too if you need more ramp (I use Thran Dynamo because I am heavy on the equipment). I would run a Quietus Spike in any deck with a Double Strike sub-theme, since even a 1/1 buffed with Arahbo's eminence & double strike (say, a flyer like Skyhunter Skirmisher) takes an opponent's life total from 40 down to 7 in just one swing. LOL! I've really enjoyed Bloodforged Battle-Axe with double strike, too, but it is really best with Sigarda's Aid & Hammer of Nazahn, since paying equip costs on twenty equipment can be a bit much.. but I have HAD TWENTY on the board, which is sweet. Anyways, these are just my ramblings, but hopefully I can help in some way- Good Luck, fellow Cat Warrior! (Cat Warrior, counts as a Cat Warrior)

Approximos on Big 'ol Flappy Lizards

Always love dragons.

For some win-cons I would try Kindred Summons and Genesis Wave.

For stuff like this where everything is huge (both mana and toughness) I like Heartless Summoning as well as Mirari's Wake and Zendikar Resurgent. That last one will also help with some draw.

I also like running some good ol' necromancy tricks with some hand cycle. I'd consider running Scion of the Ur-Dragon instead, so you can tutor out and load up your graveyard, then drop some stuff like Patriarch's Bidding, Twilight's Call, Rise of the Dark Realms, and a favorite Living Death.

If you like the last idea, run some Ancient Excavation, Jace's Archivist, Collective Defiance, Windfall, Dragon Mage, Incendiary Command, Tolarian Winds, Magus of the Wheel, and Wheel of Fate to fuel that graveyard. And if you are feeling cheeky Traumatize yourself and confuse everybody.

Also, try out some cluestones, keyrunes, obelisks and such to help with that mana ramp. I'd recommend around 8 or so to balance out the pace, unless you wanna fork out for Azusa, Lost but Seeking or Oracle of Mul Daya

Genesis Hydra? Provides a good body with more Genesis Wave effects

multimedia on Kruphix Tron

5 days ago

Hey, two budget cards that are busted with Kruphix's ability to store mana or Tron are Blue Sun's Zenith and Genesis Wave.

Expedition Map, Crop Rotation and Sylvan Scrying are all budget cards to tutor for the Tron lands.

Alchemist's Refuge lets you cast cards at instant speed with all the stored mana. Command Tower is one of the best lands for Commander.

Budget green staple Commander cards to consider:

Two drops that look good here are: Thrasios, Triton Hero use stored mana or Tron to draw cards. Kiora's Follower is ramp and can untap a Tron land or Doubling Cube.

As far as finishers it's pretty hard for your opponents to beat a fast Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur.


KingMathoro on Omnath, Locus of Mana

1 week ago

Hey there, I was just browsing and saw this in the help thread and thought I would offer my two cents as I have much experience with Omnath. First of all lemme say that it does not seem like you have any sure fire way to end the game. Siege Behemoth seems to be the only way. So I would look at cards like Triumph of the Hordes, Overwhelming Stampede, Kamahl, Fist of Krosa, Craterhoof Behemoth, Pathbreaker Ibex, Blightsteel Colossus, and also maybe an Eldrazi Titan or three. Some other great ramp cards that are out there are Traverse the Outlands and Patron of the Orochi Along with that I would say you may want to consider some removal spells like Krosan Grip, Beast Within, Song of the Dryads. Another couple of cards you may want to think about is protection for Omnath and also maybe a way or two to make him unblockable. These would be cards like Swiftfoot Boots, Darksteel Plate, Whispersilk Cloak, Lightning Greaves, Key to the City, Rogue's Passage and the like. Also since you have an Extraplanar Lens you could run Snow-Covered Forests instead of regular to deny any other person playing green the doubling affect. Lastly there is a card that does well in every Omnath deck ever and that is Genesis Wave. My God I can't even begin to tell you how great this card is in this deck. Those are my thoughts as of now. Tell me what you think!

Matthew_Minor91 on Selesnya Selvala is my favorite mana dork ever.

Get rid of Selesnya Sanctuary!!!!! The worst cycle of lands in the game, especially when dropped early. "Come one, come all. See this man lose two land drops in one turn". Check out my Karametra, God of Harvests deck for some ideas: The Lost Ark of Karametra

It runs a similar theme (as far as Eldrazi go), but the Karametra is one of those cards that require building around. I'd honestly say you're running a few too many dorks. A Captain Sisay would work well in here, along with more powerful/plentiful tutors. All your "free spells" are very underwhelming.Genesis Wave and Mosswort Bridge I'd keep.

derior on Best Elf Deck In The World - Modern Elves

I played a similar build of elves myself in Modern and believe me: Genesis Wave is a Win-more Card in this build you're running. With this build of elves you have either won by Turn 5 or got boardwiped.

Doubling Cube Is a must have for a Kruphix Deck imo.

I am also a Kruphix player and I have a little different Setup.

First, I do not run any counters, except Mana Drain, since they take away too much synergy in my opinion.

Then I would recommend you to get more Enchantments that help you get up early. Burgeoning is perfect, I also run Sylvan Library, Exploration and Abundance. They all are a little better than Burgeoning in the early game (imo).

I would also consider running Mana Reflection over Heartbeat of Spring since it doubles every mana source (yes, also Doubling Cube) and it doesn't boost your enemies.

Consecrated Sphinx is an amazing creature if you want to draw cards. I would even suggest putting her in over Prime Speaker Zegana (I currently run both, yet i will cut Zegana soon I think)

Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger and Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur are ideal if you want to take the deck to the next level. If you do put these in, prepare to be the target of every player on the table.

Palinchron and Deadeye Navigator make your Tooth and Nail to an instant win combo. Some Playgroups don't like infinite combos, so it's of course up to you.

For mana rocks I run Everflowing Chalice, Astral Cornucopia and the usual Stuff like Chrome Mox. They are especially great if you combine them with Tolaria West which lets you tutor them right into your hand.

If you have control players in your playgroup, consider playing Show and Tell as well as Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, as they are an immense problem for these kind of deck. (especially teferi)

I also run Hydras but mostly different ones than you. Hydra Broodmaster and Mistcutter Hydra are my favourite ones. Mistcutter has haste so it can immediately kill a threat, whereas Broodmaster summons many many other Hydras. (I once had 1500 1500/1500 Hydras thanks to doubling cube)

I currently also run Lifeblood Hydra and Genesis Hydra but I think I will need to cut them both, since there are too many ways to deal with Lifeblood Hydra making her completely useless (Counter, Exile, Bounce, Flicker, Change of Controller, etc.) whereas Genesis Hydra is just a bad Genesis Wave.

If you play Doubling Cube also play Voltaic Key and/or Paradox Engine since they make it even better.

Heroic Intervention to protect your precious permanents.

Oracle of Mul Daya for extra lands. Extra Lands are superb in this Deck, I think it's better than Mana Dorks like Llanowar Elves

If you play some of these creatures I mentioned, I would also suggest an Homeward Path since everyone will steal your creatures haha. Happens nearly every game to me. (Bribery, Animate Dead, etc.)

I hope you like some of my Ideas, have fun playing!
