Glistener Elf Discussion

This deck is great, my build has like 70% of the cards your does. All that’s different is i’m missing the SICK doubling enchantments and i’m running low-power Infect creatures like Blighted Agent and Glistener Elf for those spicy rage-quits from unexpecting opponents.

How about going the Infect root with Glistener Elf? Also, maybe use Vault Skirge

Deep Analysis is (sadly) not modern legal. Card frame doesnt matter, it wasnt printed in core any set other than torment (otherwise i would be brewing stitchwing.deck right now)

Using 5cmc as a cutoff point for modern playability is foolish.

Between fatal push, lightning bolt & abrupt decay even cards like Falkenrath Marauders became viable - in some skred builds. However if you don't play pure-ish control with the few high cmc card being the only non control element, then your deck will appreciate if you can ramp into your fatties.

Btw.Gatekeeper of Malakir is not suited for the deck.

  • You can't pay the kicker cost if its played via scarab god.

  • Its not targeted removal, thus its terrible if the opponent is able to throw something like Dryad Arbor under the proverbial bus to protect its Glistener Elf - and similar combo pieces

  • It also has an unwieldy BBB mana cost

(Its a great card, but not for this deck)

I would strongly recomend taking a look at the crads wih the "surveil" mechanic from guilds of ravnica.

usually infect has 1-2 cmc infect creature Glistener Elf which you would buff Groundswell and try to win in turn 2.. :)

Consider dropping the following: Derevi, Empyrial Tactician - not a Warrior Boros Signet, Selesnya Signet & Gruul Signet - weak color fixing and better use of sleeves.
Bident of Thassa - not sure, seems kinda weak but it may be better in your deck.
Bear Umbra - cute aura, but aura's are weak in multipler unless your playing aura voltron.
Sosuke, Son of Seshiro - you aren't making snakes. I know that the destroy a creature is nice, but deathtouch does effectively the same thing.

Warriors to consider:
Mardu Woe-Reaper, Skarrgan Pit-Skulk, Wild Nacatl, Blood-Chin Fanatic, Ogre Marauder, Brutal Hordechief, Drumhunter, Wolfir Silverheart
Glistener Elf - for those times when you really HAVE to but don't want to.....
Patriarch's Bidding - the best tribal recursion spell
Bloodsoaked Champion & Reassembling Skeleton - skullclamp or chump block all day long.
Surrak Dragonclaw & Yasova Dragonclaw - Because why not?
Imperious Perfect & Nacatl War-Pride - tokens!
Brion Stoutarm - fling!
Cliffhaven Vampire - this could be a combo piece....
Herald of Secret Streams - ahahahahahahaha Bramblewood Paragon has a best friend

There are more Warriors to consider, but I wanted to focus on some utility that you may have overlooked.
Here are some lands you may have overlooked: Unclaimed Territory, Opal Palace, Reflecting Pool

always let buff spells resolve before playing another. in this particular case, if you try to cast Mutagenic Growth and then immediately follow up with Become Immense, your opponent can then just Lightning Bolt your creature away before either buff has a chance to resolve. furthermore, these 2 buffs only get your Glistener Elf to 9 power.

Currently I’m attacking with Glistener Elf. There are 4 cards in my graveyard and 1 forest untapped on the battlefield.

Before damage I cast Mutagenic Growth on Glistener Elf by paying 2 life. Will I be able to follow up the Mutagenic Growth with a Become Immense considering I would need 5 cards in the graveyard? Or would Mutagenic Growth and Become Immense go to the graveyard at the same time? And this is all before damage. Attackers and Blockers have all been declared.

msmahaj722 on Exalted Trigger on Noble Hierarch ...

1 month ago

I attack with a Glistener Elf with a Noble Hierarch in play. the exalted trigger lm Glistener Elf resolves making it a 2/2. Can my opponent Lightning Bolt my Hierarch, after the Exalted trigger has already resolved, to make my Glistener Elf a 1/1 again?

In other words, would a creature lose an Exalted trigger after the permanent that gave it Exalted leaves the battlefield?
