Gomazoa Discussion

I overall really like this brew and looks like it would be pretty effective! I dont have any game changing reccomendations but i think Orator of Ojutai is worth noting for additional yet conditional draw. Gomazoa is also neat pseudo removal...also conditional.... and there is always classic pillowfort tech like Privileged Position/Dovescape.

Santorus23 on Arcades (WIP)

My question in regards to this deck is why Arcades, the Strategist instead of another bant commander such as Derevi, Empyrial Tactician? Arcades synergizes with defender cards. Of which you have only 1, which is Dragon Throne of Tarkir.

If you want to use Arcades, I recommend more defender cards such as: Tree of Redemption, Ageless Sentinels, Wall of Blossoms, Colossus of Akros, Golden Guardian  Flip, Hornet Nest, Opal-Eye, Konda's Yojimbo, Thing in the Ice  Flip, Sylvan Caryatid, Wall of Reverence, Amaranthine Wall, Assault Formation, Carven Caryatid, Dazzling Ramparts, Gomazoa, Guard Gomazoa, Hover Barrier, Just to name a few.

I also recommend as many cards that prevent your opponents from attacking you as possible: Windborn Muse, Norn's Annex, etc.

As well as cards like Shalai, Voice of Plenty, Empyrial Archangel, Tamiyo, Field Researcher, Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa

Good luck to you!

I apologize for the long post below: It is not modified for standard play. Please disregard if you are playing standard only.

The best deck to counter aura hexproof (what your friend has) is generally black/green sacrifice decks. See: Grave Pact, Butcher of Malakir, , Chainer's Edict <- (Pricy), Spore Frog, or Fleshbag Marauder. Or -1/-1 effects aka Archfiend of Ifnir, combined with enablers like Lotleth Troll or Putrid Imp.

That, or a deck that has a lot of sweeper spells - Cyclonic Rift (pricy), Terminus, Living Death. Think of sweeper spells as cards that immediately level the playing field. If you're losing, just play a sweep. Instant board reset and everybody is on even playing grounds. Cheaper Alternatives: Hallowed Burial, Devastation Tide, Coastal Breach, Evacuation; just make sure it only targets creatures (not like Wash Out) because you don't want the auras returning to hand. You want to get rid of the creatures and have the auras fall off.

I don't quite agree with Atrox's approach because I know most hexproof decks run Umbra auras (Hyena Umbra), and will easily have more than 3 toughness.

Personally, TO COMPLETELY REDESIGN YOUR DECK, I would use no creatures and only spells or maybe with creatures with nice ETB (enter the battlefield) effects (Archaeomancer. This way, the sweepers don't affect you very much and will only remove your opponents' creatures. Red will be reserved for dealing damage, and blue will be reserved solely for sweeper spells & drawing cards.

Current problems with your deck:

1) It's slow. You're going to have to have multiple pingers which all take about 3 turns+ summoning sickness to start becoming active. Izzet decks are supposed to be fast & maintain control from the beginning of the game.

2) The synergy is a little too far apart - you want to have creatures pinging damage, you want to counter spells, you want creatures to get buff; there's only so much you can do with 7 cards in your hand.

3) No card draw - you'll run out of steam very very fast. Blue excels in card draw - you should make use of it!

Here are some hate cards I highly don't recommend you using because you'd force him/her to change their deck: Gomazoa, AEther Flash, Glaring Spotlight.

Modifications if you like the creature-based "ping" strategy: Consider these cards: Razorfin Hunter, Quicksilver Dagger, Sigil of Sleep, Horseshoe Crab, Pemmin's Aura, Freed from the Real.

Try to find out what your style is, then start asking for tips to point you in the right direction.

Let me know if you have questions :) (I play an aura deck)

First off the pun, though grammatically inaccurate, is terrific. Second, I suggest that you switch out Kraken Hatchling for four copies of Ludevic's Test Subject  Flip or Gomazoa due to their synergy with Doorkeeper.

Icbrgr on Library......Where?!

Wight of Precinct Six, Jace's Phantasm, Hedron Crab, Consuming Aberration and Gomazoa are all good mill creatures to consider.

I think you need some form of early game protection. I would recommend a Fog Bank or a Gomazoa. I don't really know how this plays, its just my opinion.

Optimator on Thassa's Aquapark

Great stuff! I recently built a similar deck (Coral Capers -- (Budget Seamonsters)) and I adore it. I definitely feel ya on the nakedness!! I put in (gasp!) a few wall-like creatures, such as Gomazoa, Guard Gomazoa, Fog Bank, Wall of Frost, and Spiny Starfish. Walls are generally poo-poo'd in EDH for being one-dimensional and not actively helping one win but sometimes you just need a blocker or two. They help with devotion for Thassa too! So added functionality there. Wall of Tears is a good one as well.

I'm there with you on Ula's Temple. It'd be a great card if one was running 40+ creatures in a more low-to-the-ground aggro deck full of merfolk and wizards and the like, with the fatties as late-game bombs (and Quest targets) but getting the counters on is the hard part. When you do, though...
