Giant Growth Discussion

Grubbernaut on Pauper infect

4 days ago

Gitaxian Probe is a must. I'd lose the other cantrips, including Steady Progress, and also use more 1-mana pumps. Groundswell, Vines of Vastwood. Infect doesn't win by tapping 3 lands to draw a card, it wants to go faster than that most games

I'd lose Giant Growth for either Seal of Strength (because you can cast it and use it later to more efficiently use your mana) or Llanowar Augur for the trample, but not as necessary with Blighted Agent in the mix

Speaking of trample, with Blighted Agent you might consider cutting Larger Than Life for either more one-mana pumps, or simply more Phytoburst since you're getting the damage in and don't need the trample with it

22 lands is also more than you probably want, plus throw in Land Grant to freely fetch

Short answer, you're in the right. You can cast pump spells after blockers are declared, and before damage is allocated.

Long answer: Rule 509 of the Comprehensive rules spells it out, though in a long winded manner.

You declare Attackers.
You and your opponent, in priority order, put triggered abilities on the stack.
You and your opponent, in priority order, can cast spells or activate abilities.
Resolve the stack.

Your opponent declares blockers.
You and your opponent, in priority order, put triggered abilities on the stack.
You and your opponent, in priority order, can cast spells or activate abilities.
Resolve the stack.

Move on to the Combat Damage step.

What this means is that when you declare your attackers, before the opponent decides on blockers, they can do things like cast Bright Reprisal or Warning on one of your attacking creatures. You can also, for example, cast Jump on one of your creatures to give it flying before the opponent can declare a blocker for it.

Then the opponent declares their blockers. After that has been decided, each of you, in priority, can cast spells again. You can cast Giant Growth on your attacking creature here, and they can cast cards like Hold the Line or activate the ability on Angelic Page or General Jarkeld (and he's just a bundle of laughs, let me tell you).

Then, once everything is resolved, is damage dealt.

I personally don't bother with the boarding feature of tappedout - my tappedout lists are the ideal version of each deck that I can trade towards.

There quite a few cards that don't really synergize that can be cut: Ixalli's Keeper, Jaddi Offshoot, Jadecraft Artisan, Howl of the Horde, Profound Journey, Sigil of the Empty Throne, Prismatic Strands, Darksteel Pendant, Scroll of the Masters. You don't need spells to pump up your dinosaurs as they're already plenty big: Buccaneer's Bravado, Giant Growth, Crash the Ramparts. Some weak dinosaurs can be cut: Orazca Frillback, Raptor Companion. My thinking is that you don't need the weaker cheap creatures if you spend your early turns ramping so that you can start playing scary dinosaurs from turn 4.

My ideal version of a Gishath deck would be something like: 37 land, 3 mana rocks, 11(!) mana ramp spells, 10 answer spells (removal, board wipes), 4 protection spells (mainly stuff that can keep Gishath safe like Lightning Greaves), 30 dinosaurs, 5 non-dinosaurs that synergize well with the dinosaurs (e.g. Forerunner of the Empire).

Gattison on Auroching Your World!

+1 for Aurochs! =)

Props to you for using Hickory Woodlot, also. I like the Depletion lands a lot but haven't found a good home for most of them yet. How do you like it so far?

Also, Invigorate is banned on MTGO, and most paper pauper places also ban it. Perhaps try replacing it with Rancor so you can give your only non-trampler trample? Or else Slaughterhorn's bloodrush ability is another Giant Growth. Not +4/+4 for free, but close as I can come off the top of my head. =)

Grubbernaut on Budget Pauper Infect

2 weeks ago

Timberwatch Elf is a great card, but it's usually only going to give +2/+2, and 3cmc is a lot for infect to get out. It won't (usually) put a Glistener Elf out of bolt range, and almost never out of Flame Slash territory. I love Seal of Strength because it stays on the field and frees up mana later. With infect, you really want to win super duper fast, and +2/+2 for 3cmc just doesn't seem up to snuff, IMO.

Predator's Strike is nice because of the trample. In pauper, there's a ton of little dudes you have to bowl over. However, if Giant Growth is not in the main, what situation would cause you to side it in? It seems like a slot that could be used for hosers like Nature's Claim.

Also: 21 lands is probably a lot. I have a build that runs 14 forests and 4 Land Grant, because we REALLY need pump spells, and even if your creatures get removed, lands are a dead draw after 2-4 are on the field.

One final card you def want is Gitaxian Probe. Free cantrip and it tells you if it's safe to go for the kill!

Dismal on $10 Infect

Not sure what I feel about Might of the Masses, but I feel that plain old Giant Growth would be more consistent and overall better at getting quick infect in.

Pabs4444 on Budget Pauper Infect

Thanks for the up vote and recommendations! I'm new to the Pauper format. I feel Burn is this deck's worst matchup possibly due to it's ability to kill the creatures in response to my pump spells. Depends on the draw, I suppose. I like Timberwatch Elf because it pumps a creature for no extra mana and that can be very important with all the elves (plus Glistener Elf) in the sideboard. Why would you rather lose Giant Growth over Predator's Strike? Also, do you know if there are any fog effects that are for noncombat?

Grubbernaut on Budget Pauper Infect

Scattershot Archer is a great hoser for Delver. I'd wedge some into the SB, and probably cut the fogs

I'd also lose Giant Growth and Timberwatch Elf. 4x Nature's Claim is fantastic since life doesn't matter for infect
