Horde of Notions Discussion
4 days ago
The spell actually goes on the stack as Horde of Notions' ability is resolving, so it already violates sorcery speed restrictions even if you activate the ability only any time you could cast a sorcery. If an effect is restricting you to cast spells only any time you could cast a sorcery, you will not be able to cast any spells using Horde of Notions. If no such restriction is being placed on you, the ability will let you cast any Elemental spell at instant speed. The balance to this is that flashing in a Maelstrom Wanderer is a lot less of a surprise when it's in your graveyard and you control Horde of Notions, because all the cards are completely revealed to all players, except the ones you cascade into, which are hidden even from you.

"Play" = "Cast" if the played unless the played card is a land. If it is, it is only "play." All effects that interact with casting spells interact with Horde of Notions activations targeting nonland cards.

Horde of Notions ability lets me "play" an elemental card from my graveyard. So the question is, do I technically cast them or not?For instance how would it interact with Door of Destinies (choosing elemental)?Does Maelstrom Wanderer's cascade effects trigger?Does it trigger my opponent's cards, such ass Rhystic Study.I really need to know this for sure, as this will definitely be a discussion.Thanks in advance.

I assume Tazri is just there because it's easier to cast than Horde of Notions or Progenitus. if you were to switch to another 5-color legend, Sliver Queen would be a much better option as you can activate if you have it out and have cast an epic spell.

First off I want to say I love the deck! I had one for the longest time and enjoyed it quite a bit!!!
So lets talk card choices,
I think i like the rest of the tri-land cycle (Savage Lands) over the vivid cycle. They always produce different color mana and can't run out of charges.
Once you start upgrading those options Cascading Cataracts might be a cut. It doesn't allow you to cast Horde of Notions on curve and the mana fixing shouldn't be such a concern once you upgrade a bit.
I'm not convinced Amulet of Vigor is necessary either. If you're just running it to untap ETB tapped lands it's effect is kinda wasted i think. Haven't played it like this so if you have good experiences with it keep it in!
Hoofprints of the Stag is soooo slow
Metallic Mimic is a small effect in a big game
is Stigma Lasher necessary?
Malignus is just a big beater, no extra effects
Grave Sifter could be cut for a cheaper card
Now onto the possible additions!!
Frost Lynx, Wispmare, Forgotten Ancient, Nevermaker, Spitemare, Ingot Chewer, Lord of Extinction, Whisperwood Elemental, AEthersnipe, Bane of Progress, Greenwarden of Murasa, Rubblehulk, Chameleon Colossus, Crib Swap, Nameless Inversion, Taurean Mauler,
Buried Alive is like a triple tutor.
You could do with some more mass creature kill i think. 4 mana Wrath of God, Day of Judgment and Damnation allow you to cast them then your commander on back to back turns. plus they're cheap enough to cast then cast something else. Aura Shards is really good too

You should run Horde of Notions as the commander and give yourself access to ALL of the elementals

The cost in life to make Mana Confluence should be handled with care; especially in decks without lifegain. In my experience, lands like these are especially useful to get those early advantages in games; especially when playing with three colors or more.
I think cards like Prismatic Omen should never be used instead of ramp spells/creatures, but as extra support when playing many colors. That's why I compared it to Chromatic Lantern (although that card also acts as a mana rock :))
Sorry about Reflecting Pool; hadn't spotted it.
Sure, these cards are best used when Horde of Notions is ready. Of course Horde can be destroyed, exiled or stolen before you can use him to full effect, but that doesn't change throughout your game. If we're constantly worried about that, why include him at all? It's a question of timing our actions well (like when your opponents, and especially those using blue, are tapped out).
True, which again is why we should not use these spells unless Horde is ready.
Yeah, I get what you're saying about the cheaper creatures and I overlooked the wanderer, good point.
Anyway, thanks for responding at length; I like the way you reason. I would ask you to comment on one of my decks if you could spare the time. I always love to receive some feedback.

Hi, I like the theme of this deck, but I think you can make things much easier for yourself and much more dire for your opponents :) Because you can use Horde of Notions to cast your elementals from your graveyard, it would be a great idea to get your elementals (or at least some of them) into your graveyard asap during the game. There are great, black sorceries like Entomb and Buried Alive that allow you to do this. These are basically your extra tutor cards.
Otherwise, great work ;)
