Gilded Goose Discussion

dichia on Witch

I've seen you removed it, but how did the Early Harvest + Mirari + Regrowth combo worked? If the Bubbling Cauldron is tapped, how do you sac multiple times?

In the description you say it's for 4+ players game. How do you see the deck in a 1v1 game?

Since Cauldron Familiar uses food to come back, probably you could use some more food making cards like: Gilded Goose or Gingerbread Cabin. Or other cards that use food as well like Tempting Witch.

Also, Prophet of Kruphix can help with the flash issue and it also untap all your creatures and lands in all player's untap step. Should be good in a 4 players game.

Hope to be helpful or at least giving you some ideas.

I highly reccomend avoiding expensive cards for first decks- if you are going to spend >$5 on a card, you want to be picking up a card that fits into lots of decks as a format staple (for green, stuff like Birds of Paradise). A lot of cards are expensive because there isn't enough supply for a format (in whiptongue's case, commander), rather than them being the best options. There are diminishing returns on copies of legendary creatures too, and no shortage of inexpensive cards that never quite made the cut into modern that are super fun. Old standard staples are frequently <$0.30

If there are hydras you want to spend money one anyway, pick up one and run tutors like Uncage the Menagerie.

If you get bored, start messing around with synergies; a lot of 5/6/7 drops are playable in a green ramp shell like this- some will perform outstandingly, and others can sit it out with minor cost.

In terms of fighting fliers, Grappling Sundew, Wall of Tanglecord or Traproot Kami offer a delay, there is a lot of cheap spot removal like Aerial Volley, multiplayer options like Clip Wings, sweepers like Corrosive Gale/Hurricane/Skyreaping, options to turn flying into a downside like Bower Passage/Dense Canopy, utility answers like Crushing Canopy and Crushing Vines, 'total shutdown' effects like Elvish Skysweeper, Scattershot Archer or Gravity Well.

Then there are options like a 'fight' subtheme using your own fliers- allowing for answers to more than just flying Foe-Razer Regent is a lot of fun, Frontier Siege is cute, Kraul Harpooner has seen competitive modern play in sideboards.

I really reccomend packing in one answer and a couple of planned search effects- knowing that Uncage the Menagerie can get you a Vastwood Hydra/Overgrown Battlement/Kraul Harpooner makes it decent when you only have a few options, while it encourages a relaxed and varied decklist.

Feed the clan sees great sideboard play for a reason- its a good card when facing lightning bolt effects, but if they have repeatable damage it starts looking lackluster. I'd look at creatures with lifegain stapled on- Gilded Goose will be rotating soon, and so should get cheap and remain somewhat relevant in that neiche, while cards like Healer of the Glade, Pelakka Wurm or Oracle of Nectars do the thing in the meantime.

Finally, the 'I'm optimising a deck' thing- with 24 basic lands you can swap for 2-3 utility lands. There are budget cards that fix major problems without competing for slots; Emergence Zone against counterspells, Labyrinth of Skophos/Mystifying Maze to Fog attackers, small-scale lifegain like Sapseep Forest/Glimmerpost/Radiant Fountain, card advantage like Memorial to Unity, manlands like Treetop Village or threats like Rogue's Passage.

The reason deckbuilding in casual magic is so fun is that there is rarely a 'right' answer- there are about twenty ways to solve any problem, and its more about which one you enjoy more than what exactly you pick. I had a deck which aimed to use Gutter Grime with Brindle Boar and Gristleback for a while and it did great. Look around, don't worry too much about optimising and have fun.

king-saproling on Boros Winota

Maybe I'm crazy but I would build this with some green. Dorks like Ilysian Caryatid and Gilded Goose get Winota out faster as well as trigger her ability.

And maybe you could run the new Jolrael with loot effects. Heck you could go full dog/cat theme and run Rin and Seri too

Plunderburger on Jund Food

Companions have been axed back to the stone age, and while M21 is only partially spoiled we have some interesting new options. Full disclaimer, I don't think this deck is going to be tiered in a world where degenerate combos are king of the heap, and it is very hard to justify running a midrange deck right now.

Flattening the Curve : Looking into a few options to bring that CMC down and give us a chance against fast combo, and cast more spells per turn against control.

Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge might come in over Korvold. King dragon is a great card, don't get me wrong, but he also costs 5 mana and doesn't have haste in a world where we might just be dead by then. He may also be considerable over Grim Haruspex. Haruspex is our boardwipe protection, but outside of that he doesn't synergize with the deck very much outside of specifically cat-oven. Gadrak, however, nets us a mana (and a valuable additional sacrifice trigger!) with every cat-oven loop, can be turned on by Tireless Tracker and Gilded Goose, has synergy with clue/food/treasure tokens, makes our removal better, and makes Mayhem Devil pings more significant. At the worst he's a 5/4 flying blocker in a deck that normally blocks somewhat poorly, so it is a card worth considering in my opinion.

Lurrus of the Dream-Den yeah, yeah, I know. In this case, we don't use this bad cat as a companion, instead playing it main deck. Card will let us recast like half of our creatures, and is a perfectly reasonable stall/combatant in and of itself. Double black is a bit annoying, but no worse than Liliana, the Last Hope out of the sideboard. Questionable synergy with Mayhem Devil. Good with Kroxa.

Treacherous Blessing is an oldie-but-goodie that might be an option against control. Three cards is worth a lot, and sacking this to Vraska, Golgari Queen would be nice. Ideally we would have another sacrifice outlet to really ensure that this thing doesn't ping us for too much. It works well with Korvold, but again... I'm not sure Korvold is where we want to be right now. TL;DR I'm unsure about this card, but find it worth considering.

MTGMad2 only problem with Gilded Goose is I have no other ways to generate food tokens, plus Birds of Paradise is fulfilling my mana issues for the most part.

I've been considering the move of Vivien, Monsters' Advocate(I want another one) it's just she's not really a sideboard card...

I am still seeing how this plays before I add Umori, the Collector in as a Companion.

Dryad of the Ilysian Grove is there so I can sub out and cast Ruinous Ultimatum if they are running Fires of Invention and or Yorion, Sky Nomad.

I still have different ideas for how this deck might jump off. Hence my Maybe board. I also like the idea of adding Gilded Goose for better Ramp.

It's like, Theros Beyond Death and Ikoria have the foundation stones and building blocks but maybe Core 2021 or Zendikar Rising will have the proper mortar to solidify this deck. Thanks for the Upvote.

Anything you are working on you would like me to check out?

No easy infinites...props sir.

Gilded Goose is one of very few cards that can get Animar out on turn 2.

Nullstone Gargoyle is terrifying to almost any deck

Nantuko Vigilante, Akroma, Angel of Fury and Fortune Thief are useful morphs
