Herald's Horn


As Herald's Horn enters the battlefield, choose a creature type.

Creature spells you cast of the chosen type cost less to cast.

At the beginning of your upkeep, look at the top card of your library. If it's a creature card of the chosen type, you may reveal it and put it into your hand.

Herald's Horn Discussion

That's also a nice addition. Temur is awesome ofc! You still want some redundancy so Fires and so on is decent too.

Angels on there own are not really synergistic that is true. You want to find a shell that you put around them. Frontline Medic is one thing you can do. What also works is graveyard recursion play style, white is decent at it.

Card draw engine is decent. Fathom Mage with Master Biomancer and then Atraxa, Preator's Voice is decent in drawing. The same goes for Kindred Discovery and Colossal Majesty . All those combos draw you steadily cards and if you need to dig deeper into your library Pull from Tomorrow and Fact or Fiction is decent. Soul's Majesty and Rishkar's Expertise synergies well with the +1/+1 counter shell and Atraxa's ability (cause everyone is getting big and on minimum you get 5 cards out of them). Cheating another Angel onto the battlefield with Risharks is just perfect and if you look at my curve, i got a lot of 5 drops. The other draw spells are early game digging like Painful Truths or just a nice to have Nissa, Vital Force or if you can ult Nissa, Voice of Zendikar , but the last two are mostly in there for the possibility to get a permanent back from the graveyard or just put counter on all my creatures, to enable Atraxa's ability and steadily get scarier. Mostly makes for a great finish either with Triumph of the Hordes or Overwhelming Stampede .

I am pretty sure that you have to see what you include into your deck, cause the draw engine with Fathom mage and Master Biomancer doesnt really make sense without Atraxa and a +1/+1 counter theme. You could try to include Herald's Horn with Lifecrafter's Bestiary as a draw engine, combine that with a Sensei's Divining Top and you got a decent draw engine going.

I would recommend Shamanic Revelation for some top tier draw. Maybe Herald's Horn ? Coat of Arms might be good as a chonky lord. If you want to have a 'secondary' commander, as I'm guessing you're going for the infinite mana combo with Selvala, Heart of the Wilds and Umbral Mantle , Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury might be nice, she also works well just sitting in the deck for ramp and her [+2] makes a Llanowar Elf.

Awesome. That's about the budget range that I've built my decks at, and it sounds like we both came into EDH with a lot of random cards from a few decades. I agree that you can probably remove most of the top of deck matters cards. As for what to invest in, I would advise going for staples. If you're a fan of tribal, you'll get a lot of milage out of things like Path of Ancestry , Kindred Discovery , Kindred Dominance , Metallic Mimic , Herald's Horn , etc. They'll be good in any tribal deck you build, and you'll find that it's easy to make new decks with minimal investment. If you're more fixated on color, going for staples like Cyclonic Rift , Wrath of God , Syphon Mind , etc. will go into a lot of decks. Already owning a copy of Urborg, you might even consider investing in Cabal Coffers . The manabase is the other place where I would put my investment, for the same reasons. Since you're looking to build mid-budget, the other big resource you should look into once you've decided from looking at EDHREC what cards you want to splurge on is Scryfall. There is an option to limit cards to a certain price, say $5, and you can even order the results by commander popularity. For finding relatively obscure cards, the method I use is looking at the chase cards that are popular for what I'm building, and picking out the wording to search by text. Hope that helps!

I'd slot Shared Animosity in over Door of Destinies. Door does nothing when it comes down and needs gas to essentially feed it to get it to do anything. I have the same opinion of Cathar's Crusade here actually Instead for finishers I ran Shared Animosity, Mirror Entity , and Reconnaissance (I'll make a 2nd post just for this card to explain how busted it is).

I'd also run more card draw, this deck can end up with no hand in topdeck mode pretty fast. Drop your 1 time draw like read the bones and syphon mind and consider Greed , Dark Prophecy , Herald's Horn , Twilight Prophet , and if you feel your manabase can handle it, Necropotence . I literally ran all of those + skullclamp and Dusk Legion Zealot because this deck needs draw power to not fold to the first boardwipe you see.

On the note of folding to boardwipes... consider Boros Charm to protect your entire board instead of just creatures like Rootborn Defenses. (Or both, you run a lot of boardwipes yourself. Consider Last One Standing instead of Phyrexian Rebirth)

For your mana rocks, I'd run Fellwar Stone and Talisman of Indulgence in addition to what you already run.

Also, sorry to post so much, and I should have collected my thoughts first, having thought about building a werewolf deck before. I would also put in some higher impact interaction than Destructive Revelry and Savage Twister . The former is great in 60-card formats for its efficiency, but you really want to be running something like Bane of Progress , especially with Ruric. Krosan Grip is also better, since the 2 life rarely matters, and Vandalblast and Blasphemous Act are both staples of the format. A lot of people also like Decimate and Hull Breach in GR. Finally, you'll want some card draw. Vanquisher's Banner , Herald's Horn , and Path of Ancestry are all good, but generic stuff like Beast Whisperer , Harmonize , Zendikar Resurgent , Rishkar's Expertise , Soul of the Harvest , Lifecrafter's Bestiary , Shamanic Revelation , Elemental Bond , Greater Good , Regal Force , Primordial Sage , Momentous Fall , Life's Legacy , and Soul's Majesty will all help.

I think the biggest thing that would improve this deck is getting some tutors for Immerwolf . Chord of Calling is the most important, since it's instant-speed, allowing you to flip your werewolves. Woodland Bellower , Green Sun's Zenith , Birthing Pod , Eldrich Evolution, Fauna Shaman , and Natural Order are all good, too. Secondly, I would put in some generic tribal stuff. Adaptive Automaton , Door of Destinies , Herald's Horn , Kindred Summons , Metallic Mimic , Obelisk of Urd , Vanquisher's Banner , Urza's Incubator , Coat of Arms , Descendants' Path , Grave Sifter , Path of Ancestry , Shared Animosity , Steely Resolve , and Tribal Unity are all cards you should consider.

I've found Herald's Horn to be pretty good in helping to spit out slivers as well as to keep the hand fueled.

Kindred Discovery has provided great card draw for me.

Unnatural Selection can give some redundancy to Amoeboid Changeling and should dodge removal better.

I'll have to look at fitting in Intruder Alarm in my Overlord deck.

Shishato has always been a pet card of mine. Like your deck a lot.

Seshiro the Anointed not worthy of a spot?

Mirror of the Forebears and Herald's Horn for the snake theme.

Natural Order is a must in mono g.
