Hooting Mandrills Discussion

I also still think that Rancor would be awesome on the Mandrils and other creatures since trample can be a powerful tool to have against stuff like elf decks.
If your focused on keeping the Ouphe combo you might want to consider shifting the deck into some sort of Tron shell since you need so much mana. Adding Expedition Map to grab the bounce lands may also be a good way to ramp.

After playtesting Archmage's Charm feels bad, the mana cost is very hard to hit. It also feels like the deck doesn't apply enough pressure, often getting stuck with a few birds and faeries that you have to chump block with. You might consider Drown in the Loch for a replacement for Charm though it doesn't draw cards, or maybe Sultai Charm as it gives good filtering and mobility. I like the idea of Gurmag Angler or Hooting Mandrills to present a clock.

Love the list but if it were me at least, I'd lean into the self mill a tad bit more for Gurmag Angler , Tasigur, the Golden Fang , and Hooting Mandrills . They're huge value if you can drop them early and late game value with tasigur's ability and an efficient way to emerge the decimator as they're all high cmc
Love Decimator of Provinces as a card and I'm glad to see it do some good

Sorry, with the links this time.
Hey! I am considering a similar deck. Have you tried Grisly Salvage and the delve creatures ( Gurmag Angler and Hooting Mandrills )? They can reduce the emerge cost quite easily. Abundant Maw could also be our "siege rhino" card and deals a lot of damage, particularly as you already have Creeping Chill .I really like Tamiyo in this deck!!

Basically, every modern player with a pet brew will be trying to shoehorn it into a new format. And all the things that were stopping them being played aren't in that format. Except thoughtsieze, which everyone has.
I'm expecting pseudo-combo Rally the Ancestors 'drain you for twenty' lists, Jeskai Ascendancy /emry (which doesn't really care about artifact destruction because it only wants it for the untap), Saheeli, Sublime Artificer artifact cloning shenangians, Timestream Navigator / Traverse the Ulvenwald / Mystic Sanctuary , elf ' Beck ' lists, etc.
I'm pulling Soulfire Grand Master off of the shelf. I'm wondering about Eldritch Evolution on Hooting Mandrills . Jace, Wielder of Mysteries and Creeping Chill in a format with Undercity Informer and Balustrade Spy .
All the janky lists which just needed one more thing. These first few weeks are going to be wild. Like early modern, with 24/7 storm.

Sheltered Thicket has two types, mountain and forest, so it helps with Kird Ape . Maybe you can focus on your lands to surprise your adversary with Primal Bellow , you may try Ash Barrens or Evolving Wilds . Or, following the shout style: Roar of the Crowd .
In fact this deck can use a lot of cards ideas. So I believe you will maintain it opened for new ideas you may have for quite a while.

The "problem" with Nemesis of Mortals is that it lacks evasion and if I was using a card which cared about creatures in the graveyard it would probably be Skaab Ruinator and I'd go back to 3 colours. By all means test it, but I suspect it will just be chump blocked and that it isn't really better than Gurmag Angler Tasigur, the Golden Fang or Hooting Mandrills which don't care about card type...
