Heroic Intervention Discussion

I apologize for the late response as I have been very busy. I used to have Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip and Kamahl, Fist of Krosa were both in the initial iteration of the deck. Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip I found to be underwhelming and the flip isn't substantial either. For 3 mana, I can do a lot more. Particularly, adding in more removal, hatebears or ramp. Kamahl, Fist of Krosa costs way too much for what he does. I would cringe each time I draw him.

Rishkar, Peema Renegade seems interesting, especially with Paradox Engine.I was initially hesitant about adding Paradox Engine because it would conflict with Gaddock Teeg but seeing how my win cons (Living Plane and Pattern of Rebirth) conflict with Teeg as well, I suppose it can't hurt as others are adding it into their list as well.

Yisan, the Wanderer Bard is pretty slow but works EXTREMELY well with Lightning Greaves, Hall of the Bandit Lord and Thousand-Year Elixir. I'll need to put him under consideration for the chopping board. Blossoming Defense is weak and will most probably be replaced. Heroic Intervention is in the process of being playtested and isn't half bad. There are a lot of removal and boardwipes in EDH and it has saved me a few times. Nevertheless, you are right and I will consider it for the chopping board.


Remove: Heroic Intervention, Blossoming Defense, and Yisan, the Wanderer Bard

Insert: Paradox Engine, Rishkar, Peema Renegade(?) and one other card. Is there any card from my maybeboard you could recommend and if so why?

Heroic Intervention good against things like Fumigate which is also a decent sideboard card for you if you get in a pinch. Nice build, +1

I've been tinkering around with a G/U energy/Pummeler deck also (in my profile if you care to check it out). My thoughts:

You have a ton of energy sources and a couple instant speed buffs. Also a lot of creatures. What you don't have is a way of making your Electrostatic Pummeler reach your opponent. The way I see it, you either need to make it unblockable (Key to the City) or give it trample (Larger Than Life). I put both in (only 2 keys though), the logic there being that you really need at least 1 of them to make your Pummeler effective. Otherwise, your opponent can just block it with a servo and you have to waste cards keeping it alive that you'd rather save for your kill combo.

The hexproof from Blossoming Defense is nice, even critical I would argue, as it's your only defense against removal. That being said, it would be nice to add that +2/2 when you finally pump up your pummeler. It's a great dual purpose card that can save your creature or give it a little bump towards that big attack, but against anyone with a few more removals in their deck, it won't be enough, and if you use them up saving your creature, you find yourself light on cards to pump your pummeler when the time comes. This is why I went with far fewer creatures and more control. Turn Aside Negate Disallow Heroic Intervention all are great depending on what you're up against. Also Glimmer of Genius is another great instant speed card if you can find room for it. Just my opinion, good luck!

lagotripha 8-whack will always be faster, the way to beat it is through consistency with efficient creatures. Narnam Renegade is one of them, it can kill everything don't caring about stats and if revolted (rarely, it's true but happens) it can survive opponent's 1 drops, even some 2 drops. Kalonian Tusker can be better in some cases, I think the real problem is that I empty my hand faster because where classic stompy plays a 2 drop I play 2 1 drops so Lifecrafter's Bestiary maindeck can be useful.

dannecticut Thanks for help. Trigger Narnam Renegade's revolt is not so necessary, play it pre-combat to get devotion is totally fine as it still does its backup job.I treid Attune with Aether but it's too slow, play Greenbelt Rampager for would be nice but this is not why it's in the deck.I prefer Kalonian Tusker over Garruk's Companion due to more survivability and cause I'm not playing a playset of Aspect of Hydra.I've Surrak, the Hunt Caller and I like it, no time to try it but I'll do, same for Beast Within and Heroic Intervention.

poshakitoo yeah Heroic Intervention is better. Thanks for that. Although I may run it instead of Rootborn Defenses.

The power creep in my EDH play group meant that this deck was too underpowered.

I've joined a new group so I might give this another try. I'll let you know how it goes.

Want to point out that you've convinced me to build this cause I love Leo and the Resovior. Have you considered Heroic Intervention? Seems sweet on a scepter.

Other spells worth considering:

Beast Within: Main-board answer for problem cards like Ensnaring Bridge, Liliana of the Veil, Ghostly Prison, Urza's Tower, etc. You can also destroy your own Forest on your opponent's end step for a surprise 3/3 attacker!

Heroic Intervention: Because board-sweepers suck.
