Heroic Intervention Discussion

smiffdemon on Ishkanah Stuff

Hi Guint!! Here are some suggestions I think you could utilize for Ishkanah. So far it looks good!

The things we want to make sure you have in this deck are ways to activate delirium, as well as ways to activate Ish's tribal effects. Let's start with the spiders themselves~

Now onto the Delirium Mechanic. Making sure your own cards into the graveyard can seem counterproductive but a lot of things benefit from it. So first, how do we self mill?

Now for some super fun cards that benefit from a graveyard presence.

Now lets talk about Black and Green as colors in EDH. Black/Green has a few things that it needs to run undoubtedly. One of its major problems is card draw, so you're definitely going to want to auto-include Harmonize and Phyrexian Arena. I would also consider Lifecrafter's Bestiary.

Removal: Putrefy, Murder, Hero's Downfall, Abrupt Decay, Krosan Grip, Golgari Charm, Toxic Deluge, In Garruk's Wake, Acidic Slime, Beast Within. Dictate of Erebos to be used in conjunction with a sacrifice outlet like Ashnod's Altar (sac your extra tokens for mana!)

Protection: Asceticism, Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, Heroic Intervention

Tutors: Green Sun's Zenith, Diabolic Tutor, Demonic Tutor

Ramp: Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Solemn Simulacrum, Sol Ring, Explosive Vegetation, Thran Dynamo, Commander's Sphere, Golgari Signet, Cryptolith Rite, Harrow, Crop Rotation, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Yavimaya Elder.

The only other thing I want to say about your deck is that you should probably up your land count to at least 36. 30 is usually too little for most EDH decks in my experience. Unless you're going super aggro, you'll find yourself short on a lot of land drops.

If you wanted to upgrade your lands, here are some relatively inexpensive things you could add:

Golgari Rot Farm, Command Tower, Jungle Hollow, Temple of Malady, Woodland Cemetery, Overgrown Tomb, Llanowar Wastes, Tainted Wood, Grim Backwoods, Bojuka Bog, Hissing Quagmire, Temple of the False God, Drownyard Temple, Ghost Quarter, and any lands that Cycle in your colors :)

Enigma_Machine on G/W Cat Tribal Help

I'd really apppreciate insight and suggestions on my planned Cat Tribal Deck.




The general idea is to capitalize on numerous ways to place counters on creatures, the use Rishkar's conferred ability to play out Regal Caracal and Paradox Engine ahead of curve. I would like to use Paradox engine, plus extra mana from Rishkar (though it isn't strictly necessary), to get multiple activations of Pride Sovereign's exert ability in one turn; this would simultaneously give me a HUGE fatty and flood the board with 1/1 or, better case, 2/2 tokens.

Throne of the God Pharoh is there to give me additional reach, and I could use Rishkar to tap down any creature I don't want to risk attacking with, and so still get max value from Throne. Not really sure if I should run it or not, but I can see myself going wide enough to put it to good use.

I haven't had a chance to play-test this at all, since several of these cards obviously haven't been released. However, I really want to get a head-start on the build. (I also want to figure out if this is even viable before I invest in the Paradox Engines). Any and all feedback would be greatly appreciated, and well as any insight you can provide into good sideboard options against the current meta.

I started putting together a deck like this too. I think it's worth using Anointed Procession here and maybe even Oketra the True.

Other considerations are Cast Out, Sandwurm Convergence, and Heroic Intervention.

The Felidar Sovereign is a neat addition here that I hadn't even thought of. But anyways here was my list even though it wasn't done:

I think you may be getting enough counters on your creatures to consider Tezzeret's Gambit for greater card draw with the bonus of proliferation.

No sideboard? Some sideboard standards to consider: Hurkyl's Recall, Vines of Vastwood, Naturalize, Pithing Needle, Elixir of Immortality, Bonds of Mortality, Heroic Intervention

Hey! Love big green decks :D The strategy is so simple and yet can be so complex when you get into the nitty gritty of how many creatures to play, when to attack and how you want to close out the game.
You asked for board-wipe insurance, and I have a few personal favorites.
Heroic Intervention is a new card, and has a lot of upside to it. Very cheap at 2 mana, and instant speed means you can save it for whenever you need to play it. Plus it gives Hexproof for a little added utility.
Whisperwood Elemental is an interesting way to go about saving yourself from wraths. It gives you a guy every turn, the downside being if you manifest an instant or sorcery you likely really wanted that in your hand and not on the battlefield as a vanilla 2/2. The upside being your lands become beaters late game.
And last but not least, Soul of New Phyrexia is also a great card. At 6 mana, its not really expensive in a mono green deck, it doesn't tap to do it, and you can even do it from the graveyard. On top of that it's got a big 6/6 body!

Heroic Intervention or Archangel Avacyn  Flip due to the issue that we straight up lose to any Wrath of God effect without them.I'm more worried about Archfiend of Ifnir decks; so we need Solemnity as well.

Hi StoicAngel,

true, Dusk//Dawn would be a problem. What about some protection in the form of Heroic Intervention and Blossoming Defense?

Grahamatica on Theomok the token eater *need help*

It might help you to get some haste enablers for your commander so you can eat up 5 tokens and slam into your opponents face without giving them a full round of turns to deal with your 25/25.

Hall of the Bandit Lord

Swiftfoot Boots

Lightning Greaves


Brawn sac him and it will give your guy trample

Flamekin Village

Ogre Battledriver

Xenagos, God of Revels
