Hangarback Walker Discussion

Karzalar on Atraxa Counters, Less OP SO MUCH FUN

1 day ago

Glad you like the suggestions! I've got two variations of Atraxa (she's just too good), one in the creature-type like yours and one in the planeswalker-wrath type.

Maybe, for this deck, consider Hangarback Walker? Starts small, becomes a load of tokens with proliferate. Also, Walking Ballista!

I'm not entirely sure what you're going for here, but Vault Skirge, Hangarback Walker and Cranial Plating are fun cards. Maybe you can do something with Chief of the Foundry? Also, he isn't an artifact but, maybe check out Phylactery Lich, since he plays well with artifacts. Or if you want to cast some serious threats I would look into creature cards with annihilator like Pathrazer of Ulamog, since annihilator can seriously decimate your opponent's board very quickly. A couple cheaper ones price wise are Artisan of Kozilek, Ulamog's Crusher, and Hand of Emrakul. Regardless, you would need to mana ramp into them. Good Luck! :)

Dryad Arbor, Zoetic Cavern, Khalni Garden are lands that can trigger ezuri.

Managorger Hydra, Tuskguard Captain, and Phantom Nantuko are great creatures.

Hooded Hydra, Hangarback Walker, and Chasm Skulker are must-haves.

Oran-Rief, the Vastwood give counters

Other good cards: Burnished Hart, Gyre Sage, Hornet Queen, Inspiring Call, Progenitor Mimic, Eldritch Evolution, Green Sun's Zenith, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Verdant Confluence, Rishkar's Expertise, Asceticism and more.

For planeswalkers i would suggest Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury and Nissa, Voice of Zendikar

Another thing to note is that proliferate works on experience counters so that means: Viral Drake, Tezzeret's Gambit, Thrummingbird, Skyship Plunderer(he's basically a single target proliferate)

Oooo I really like Life's Legacy. Hangarback Walker I can see its potential, but I would maybe want some ramp to make him more effective. But I will play test and see. Thanks for the comment and suggestions, NyanNijet

Hangarback Walker gets ridiculous with Hardened Scales

I run Life's Legacy in my deck. it is great turn 4 or so, have your Hangarback Walker swing in for a bunch, then sack it draw a bunch of cards and recycle it into thopters.

mystiqee on Ensoul und Panzer!

Hey man, I'm also building grixis ensoul,

As for the open slots, ornithopters work fine but another option for black is Scrapheap Scrounger

Bant Coco (Idk about human coco, but I'm gonna try it) is absolute crap, I should know cause I tried running it, looses to hardened scales 8/10 times. I use Dispel to protect my ensoul target, but I'm thinking of using Stubborn Denial for a catch all.

I only use two Tezzeret's Touch, and it has saved me a couple times, but is usually something I pitch to the looter scooter. I once used it on a Hangarback Walker and since it uses counters, it just adds 5 PT, and then you get the walker back, plus the tokens.

As for the bfz lands, I just forgo them all together, too slow for my goals. I run Spire of Industry and Aether Hub and 3 fetches for color fixing, because so much of the deck is colorless.

And yes, Bomat courier is one hell of a card ;)

Please consider giving my deck some advice at http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/16-03-17-lGI-grixis-ensoul/

Hangarback Walker has pretty good synergy, should be helpful. Nim Deathmantle & Mimic Vat can also help keep a stream of sacrifice targets coming. Elspeth, Sun's Champion is one of the best token makers, plus it board wipes and leaves your commander. Fatestitcher & Aphetto Alchemist can get you another counterspell per turn.

ah, now I understand why you don't have Master Biomancer in here!

Hangarback Walker can be mana intensive, however you'll not have that issue since you're playing with ezuri in mind.

Primal Vigor is fine, a little expensive though.

Same could be said for Hornet Queen

Parallel Lives is tonnes of fun, though i don't know how extensive your token game is rn.

all that said, I'm gonna yoink the current list for... research purposes lol.
