Herald's Horn Discussion

triproberts12 on Deep Sea Apocalypse

Wow, dude. You might be the very first person I've advised to remove lands from their deck. 42 is plenty, even for a big creature deck with Exploration and Burgeoning. Add in a little more early ramp in those spots. Sakura-Tribe Elder and Farseek come to mind. T

he other thing to keep in mind if you're new to commander is that 99-card singleton vs 60-card decks with 4 copies of staple cards behave very differently. You're only 50/50 to draw two creatures in the first 6 turns. Foster and Heirloom Blade might be good, in addition to a few more leviathans. Deep-Sea Kraken is a great early drop that should be out with haste by turn 5. Mesmerizing Benthid and Elder Deep-Fiend are octopi that can slow down opponents. Tromokratis is just a pain for any deck running utility creatures. Nimbus Swimmer can get hilariously large with your ramp package.

I think the counterspells that untap lands are clever, for sure. I might also consider Frantic Search for the same reason. If you really want to double down on the flash subtheme, then Leyline of Anticipation and/or Vedalken Orrery are good. Although, if you want to remove Simic Signet , as well, having very few artifacts or enchantments (that don't win on the spot, anyway), means that Bane of Progress and Wave of Vitriol are both pretty great.

Cyclonic Rift is just a straight-up staple, so make that a stretch card when you want to put more into the deck. As for tribal stuff, this might be a stretch on your budget, but Herald's Horn and Urza's Incubator are where it's at.

Bounty of the Luxa hasn't been all it was hyped up to be when it first came out. I'm not a fan of Foil , since the part of the game when you've got 4 mana but don't have extra untapped lands is pretty narrow.

Beyond that, I would check out the sea-creature tribal EDHREC page for Arixmethes. Looks like about 30 people have built decks under that theme, which is lower than I expected, although the decks from the main page might be built as such but not labeled. There's also a quirk of tribes with high CMC and low numbers tend to not meet the EDHREC critera for the site's algorithm automatically labelling it as a tribal deck.

Herald's Horn is not a bad addition, since it reduces the cost by 1 of all your druids.

And Recycle is not a bad idea either, since it fits the theme of storm, it can leave you a bit vulnerable, but it makes your land drops even draw you a card.

I'm trying to build a very similar decklist, just taking out all elves. The only problem is that all the good 1 drop druids are elves. Hey check out my deck Seton, Protector of Storm and if you have any suggestions, that are not elf related I'd love to see them!

I personally don't feel the new Rakdos is competitive. If anyone can prove me wrong, cool. Either way, he is a lot of fun. What I did with mine is create a "Russian Roullete" themed deck. It's very casual, cheesy board wipes, and some of my own minions are not immune to Rakdos Roullete. He's a lot of fun. Here are some useful picks you might want to consider.

Conjurer's Closet , Skull Collector , Decoction Module , Erratic Portal , Oni of Wild Places ,

Basically, blink Rakdos. :) If you find any others, please let me know. Here is the link to my version.

Let's play Rakdos Roullette~

No graveyard recursion whatsoever, just a bunch of demons, some other useful critters. Some devils, imps. Somewhat refined draw, and a stupid amount of ramp. I saw the cost of Rakdos, and demons, and decided they needed to become affordable ASAP. Built for fun. It gets those demons out though, so you don't necessarily have to cut demons, in fact, because of Liliana's Contract being so cheap right now, I'd take advantage of that if you already haven't. Also, Revel in Riches ..... Running my version, you are basically playing Rakdos Roullette, again and again hehe. Mirror March looks interesting. I am considering Krark's Thumb for mine.

Be careful playing Painful Quandary! If you don't have a ton of discard to support that card, you can get targeted really fast. I run it in my Gonti's suicide hotline deck.

My Rakdos is either hilariously effective against something, or ridiculously ineffective. But, as a lover of board wipes, he is a ton of fun. I may consider Mirror March for my version, so thank you for sharing. Look through my creatures though! There are some fantastic demons that make the ramp worth it. I've got a pretty good ramp package too, so check that out as well.

I hope your version turns out well for you and what you're going for. Also, Bontu's Monument Herald's Horn Hazoret's Monument COST REDUCTION FOR DEMONS!

Run Reconnaissance . This card allows you to attack with everyone safely (yes, even that 0/1, why not), untap each creature at the most opportune time for pseudo vigilance, and still deal combat damage in most situations.

Untaps to avoid bad blockers (obvious face value of the card), it untaps after first strike damage but before normal combat damage is dealt (great for getting +1+1 counters from Drana, Liberator of Malakir to your whole team and busted with Stromkirk Captain), and it even untaps after normal combat damage is dealt due to the creature being an 'attacking' creature until the end of combat step ends.

This combination of full tilt aggro with everyone available to block makes Sorin, Solemn Visitor 's +1 really good here (Note, 'until your next turn') and it more than offsets a few of my next suggestions.

As far as the decks inherent card draw weakness goes, consider Dark Prophecy , Greed , Herald's Horn , and Twilight Prophet . Protecting your board also prevents topdeck mode. Consider Boros Charm and/or my favorite piece of secret tech here... Scapegoat , which gets around tuck/exile/-1-1 type boardwipes, keeps our hand filled, and gets our eminence triggers again.

Anyways, feel free to check out my list for inspiration. Upvotes on any of my decks is appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

It’s been a while since I’ve done this so forgive me if I mess up the formatting or something.

The first (and probably most important) thing I’d recommend is more consistent card draw. Necropotence is good, although the triple black can sometimes be tough to get, but aside from that all you’ve got is Underworld Connections and a few Read the Bones -esque cards. Personally I prefer Phyrexian Arena over UC because it’s basically the same thing except you essentially have to pay 1 mana for UC, although it also gives you the option of timing. Up to you. Anyway, in my experience RtB type single use effects, while good, aren’t quite enough. Twilight Prophet is a strong one that fits perfectly; he’s actually a Vampire and his trigger would set off your Sanguine Bond / Exquisite Blood combo. I also run Greed as a great mana sink for any excess mana.

A pseudo-card draw type effect you might want is Herald's Horn . It is very good here; it makes vampires cheaper and it can get you more card draw; both good things.

I also would recommend you look into replacing Door of Destinies . Sure it can really do work in the right circumstance, but if you draw it late it does essentially nothing. Shared Animosity could be a good replacement.

I could go on and on about ideas for upgrades for your deck but personally I enjoy doing that myself, so I’ll stop here. This has been plenty long enough. I’ll leave a link to my deck so you can check it out if you’re interested; I took mine down a more aggro/token route rather than the SB/EB combo but still you may find something helpful there.

Now this is some crazy stuff I can get behind. Herald's Horn maybe something to acquire. Also run more tutors to get the "tirbal" cards you need.
