Herald's Horn

Artifact

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

Kogarashi on Changeling and Door of Destinies

1 week ago

The reminder text for changeling explains that "This card is every creature type at all times." This includes in zones other than the battlefield, such as on the stack. So when you cast Avian Changeling, you're not only casting a Shapeshifter spell, you're casting a Human spell, a Wizard spell, a Goat spell, a Construct spell, a God spell, and any other creature type that currently exists.

So it will indeed work with Door of Destinies, Herald's Horn, and Kindred Discovery.

Cathars' Crusade, by the way, doesn't care about creature types, just creature permanents. So even though Crib Swap also has changeling and thus all the creature subtypes, it isn't a creature permanent, and thus wouldn't trigger Cathars' Crusade. It would, however, work with Door of Destinies because the Door only cares that you're casting a spell (of any sort) with the chosen creature subtype, even if the spell in question is not, itself, a creature spell.

Hey there,

Do changeling's triggers the effects of cards like Door of Destinies that checks for a certain creature type when you cast it? It works the same for cards like Cathars' Crusade or Herald's Horn Kindred Discovery?

Herald's Horn would be great in here as well as Vanquisher's Banner.

I've been playing The Scarab God Zombie EDH deck for a long while now. He's a great combo commander because his passive ability is aggressive and helps you hit combos while his active ability perfectly plays along with the zombie theme.

That being said, you've made some weird card choices, especially among your creatures.

Here's some Zombie's that I'd suggest to replace the many non-Zombie creatures you're running:

Balthor the Defiled, Cryptbreaker, Ghoulcaller Gisa, Grave Titan, Graveborn Muse, Gravecrawler (this is the most important combo piece in the deck), Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Havengul Lich, Lazav, the Multifarious (as a shapeshifter, he is a Zombie), Lich Lord of Unx, Lord of the Accursed, Lord of the Undead, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Noxious Ghoul, Razaketh, the Foulblooded (can pull all combo pieces in 1 turn, and play all 4 for 6 mana), Relentless Dead, Risen Executioner, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Taigam, Sidisi's Hand (not a zombie, but fills your graveyard with them and has built in removal). These guys would go a long way to improving the consistency and power level of your deck.

Here's a few non-zombie cards that synergize with them very well:

Attrition (repeatable removal and sac engine), Dictate of Erebos+Grave Pact (combos well with Gravecrawler+sac outlet), Secrets of the Dead (works with all the ways we can play zombies from our graveyard and combos with Gravecrawler), Herald's Horn (draw + ramp), Urza's Incubator (ramp), Vanquisher's Banner (pump + draw), Whip of Erebos (lifelink zombies + graveyard play), Buried Alive (use this to put Gravecrawler, Wonder, and Risen Executioner into your graveyard for a great little combo that instantly gives you access to 3 cards), Search like Diabolic Tutor, Demonic Tutor, and Diabolic Intent helps to get out combo pieces.

The main combo I keep talking about is Rooftop Storm + Gravecrawler + a sac outlet, usually Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, and something to abuse like Grave Pact/Dictate of Erebos, Diregraf Captain/Plague Belcher/Noxious Ghoul/Bontu's Monument. These are all pieces that are individually good, but when put together will instantly win you the game in one way or another. Razaketh, the Foulblooded can be used to grab all 4 combo pieces, then you only need to play Rooftop Storms and you can play the rest of the combo for free! It's a really great card in black combo decks like this.

Anyways, feel free to take a look at my deck if you want any ideas. Zombies are my favorite tribal and are always a blast to play. I love that they can be so combo heavy, yet still be an unstoppable horde if you can't combo out thanks to all the +1/+1 anthems that Zombies get. Good luck with your deck!

Tuminaro on Snakes making a comeback!

Thanks for advice skeletonbarrel Definitely adding Prowling Serpopard to the sideboard! I opted to keep Blight Mamba cause of the great synergy with Kaseto, Orochi Archmage. That, with any other boosting (Seshiro the Anointed/Beastmaster Ascension) those poison counters will be a back up way to victory while tokens/other snakes stall.

Any opinion on putting in Herald’s Horn or Door of Destinies?

Cloudius on "They're just elves"

+1 The deck looks fun to pilot. Some suggestions

Metallic Mimic - grants all your elves +1/+1 counters.

Path of Discovery - helps you filter the top card and puts +1/+1 counters on your creatures.

Overwhelming Stampede, Garruk Wildspeaker, Craterhoof Behemoth - If you need more Overrun type effects.

Triumph of the Hordes - Swarm opponents with infected elves!

Lifecrafter's Bestiary - Free Scry every turn and card draw for just an additional .

Vedalken Orrery - I'd prefer this over Winding Canyons.

Growing Rites of Itlimoc , Gaea's Cradle - Who doesn't love more mana at their disposal.

Heroic Intervention - A staple in almost every Green deck. Protection against target removals and board wipes.

Herald’s Horn - Awesome for tribal decks. Synergizes well with "Explore" and "Scry" mechanics and Sensei's Divining Top if you decided to play it.

Temur Sabertooth - Bounces Eternal Witness and other creatures with ETB for repeated use. Can be used to save your important creatures from removal too.

BackwardsChart on Crosis the not sure where I'm going with this deck

You're right, I'm not sure what you're doing with this deck either. A couple suggestions;

Embrace discard or dragons, I'd recommend Discard, It's more reliable and offers you more advantage. However if you did go with dragons I'd recommend going all in and chucking anything that isn't a Dragon.

For Discard, grab Megrim, Liliana's Caress, Tasigur's Cruelty and if you can get one Bloodchief Ascension. Also original Nicol Bolas is super strong in discard.

For Dragons I'd recommend Lathliss, Dragon Queen, and Demanding Dragon from M19, they are both strong picks and play into a Dragon strategy, shouldn't be too hard to trade for. Also, I know they are a bit pricey, but Herald's Horn, and Vanquisher's Banner The advantage these offer are worth it.

Anyway, good luck with this one, it's a strong foundation, just needs some polish.

Doombeard1984, great job at the tourny! Every win is a win for all of us Sliver players. Turns out I was wrong about Herald's Horn, it's pricier than I thought. It's still pretty good though. I look forward to how your deck shapes. I hope my thoughts were of some use to you.
