Gilder Bairn Discussion

luin on Looking for 4 Balanced Decks ...

Whoa thanks guys, very much appreciated!

Well my favourite combinations are W/B, R/W, G/U and U/B. I've always wanted to build a deck based on Experiment Kraj + Gilder Bairn combo, while the U/B deck could be control or something similar. Haven't an actual idea about the W/B and the R/W atm (I quite liked the concept of an exalted deck with Fumiko the Lowblood + Lightmine Field combo, though I'm not very sure about it). I generally prefer decks inspired by a combo (not an instant-win one, just a fun combo to play with) over aggro and straightforward tribal.

Experiment with different hydra/ +1/+1 counter stuff. I have two suggestions for this:

1) Lifeblood Hydra. Gives you some card draw and life gain for when it dies, could be helpful in some cases. I dont suggest going a full playset on this one, as its not as powerful as other hydras, it just has those death effects.

2) Gilder Bairn. Doubling the amount of counters in any given thing can be huge! Just pay the green bit. Every turn! If you need a tap outlet too, try Paradise Mantle. You get 1 mana, pay three, double as many times as you can. This can be an infinite loop with Training Grounds, but for this I would not suggest adding that too. Check out my deck (Emrakul turn 4) if you want to know how to build around that. Good job, and good luck with further adaptations!

Gilder Bairn can help with your planeswalkers' ultimates.

I'd definitely suggest Utopia Sprawl, maybe instead of Market Festival. Even Fertile Ground might be nicer, if you're on a budget, because being able to play things earlier usually gives you a huge edge, and the festival takes up a lot of mana. And personally I think Voyaging Satyr is a lot nicer than Blossom Dryad, as the extra power isn't usually relevant on a mana dork, and costing one less mana helps immensely.

Another neat card might be Soul's Fire, which is like Fling except it doesn't kill your giant Hydras. Gilder Bairn might be fun with them, too.

And, finally, and perhaps most importantly, I think you should definitely run less mountains, when over 3/4ths of your cards need only green mana. Maybe look into some of the cheaper dual lands - even the ones that always enter tapped could work alright in slower multiplayer games. Though with the enchantments generating any-colored mana, especially if you get Utopia Sprawl, your need for red becomes even smaller.

Just to give you guys some inspiration, the Gilder Bairn/Training Grounds/Paradise Mantle combo could give you other things as well: infinite +1/+1 counters on a Primordial Hydra, infinite charge counters on Darksteel Reactor or Umezawa's Jitte, a fully loaded Goblin Bomb with infinite fuse counters, Jace, the Mind Sculptor with infinite loyalty counters (or any other cool planeswalker), really anything cool that uses counters. Try some of these out if you want to.

Hi JARTLEONHART, Vorel of the Hull Clade is already in the deck. I have a Gilder Bairn but i left it out of the deck because i dislike the untap option. I think he is better in a planewalker deck.

This is kind of more of a joke than anything else, but it could hypothetically get Emrakul, the Aeons Torn our on turn 4. The Vexing Sphinx is there for infinite card draw when combined with Gilder Bairn then draw and use Laboratory Maniac to win.

You've got 2x Etherium Sculptor in here, just so you know.

My suggestion would be Gilder Bairn. Works really well for counter themes, only weirdness is that it uses the untap mechanic.
