Hornet Nest

Creature — Insect

Defender (This creature can't attack.)

Whenever Hornet Nest is dealt damage, put that many 1/1 green Insect creature tokens with flying and deathtouch onto the battlefield. (Any amount of damage a creature with deathtouch deals to a creature is enough to destroy it.)

Steely Resolve is a nice tribal protection enchantment that can protect your dinosaurs.

I'd say Heroic Intervention and Boros Charm are both very important to protecting your dinosaurs and the charm is even better for sudden double strike on Gishath. Both cards also enable a potential Forerunner of the Empire, Polyraptor / Raptor Hatchling infinite token enrage win con with the indestructibility.

I've also personally had success running a damage board wipe package alongside the indestructibility spells (and Temple Altisaur ) like Blasphemous Act, Star of Extinction, and Wave of Reckoning just to get that enrage value. Board wipes hurt in Gishath, but sometimes you just have to. You can at least get something out of it if you have enrage dinosaurs out using those spells. Getting the occasional one sided wipe with the package of cards alongside enrage has always felt good.

Hornet Nest is also hilarious with those wipes and is pretty nice for help against flying threats. Chaosphere is also a cool enchantment against flying heavy metas.

Corrosive_Cat I like Wall of Tanglecord. I think it is definitely better to have that than Consulate Skygate. The toughness alone is worth it and the times that I do need Reach I can just give it to the creature. I also liked Hornet Nest. Would be nice as an extra way of winning and giving me some flying defense. Wall of Reverence I can only really see being useful on Colossus of Akros. Though it would be really cool to get that synergy working, I don't know if I want to put one in the deck. Though I appreciate the suggestions yet again!

Wall of Reverence is pretty funky, even as a one-of? Especially in a deck like this. Traproot Kami is kinda cool too, and fits with the prior card nicely. Arguably as well, Wall of Tanglecord is a little better than Consulate Skygate, as more often than not you might rather have the extra health than the reach? Hornet Nest could be kinda cool in the right situations with indestructible and stuff, but kinda situational

Dragon Broodmother kann nicht dein Commander sein, Alternativen fuer ne Lifegain / Token / Devour Strategie waeren:

Empfehle ausserdem Karten die nix mit dem Lifegain / Token / Devour Theme zu tun haben (wie z.B. Flameblast Dragon, Radha, Heir to Keld etc.) zu replacen:

You have a very interesting strategy, because there is a great number of possibilities with the cards you want to use. Here is a few ideas that may help you: (1) Dromoka's Command fits also with Hornet Nest, you could use it if you want to change to a more defensive set. (2) Adding Mogg War Marshal, and more goblin tokens, could make you use Quest for the Goblin Lord which is also a interesting card, and still thinking about goblins you can pick Tuktuk the Explorer or others much more expensive goblins (for expensive i mean money). But, thinking about exploring both tuktuk, and hornet nest damage triger abilities, also brings Boros Charm, which is also awesome with those two you want to use Zada, Hedron Grinder, and Mirrorwing Dragon. (3) Now, 8 cost 4 cards in your deck may be a problem sometimes in your hand, so i really recommend 4x Faithless Looting, removing 4 of your cost 4 cards.

Other idea is that you should think if it would be a more consistent deck if you choose to use two colors instead of 3. If you have patience you can try to create 3 decks, one with red and white, other red and green, and the red, green and white again, just to see how it goes.

And, if you want more cards on maybeboard:

Crowd's Favor

Lightning Bolt

Thunder Strike

Phytoburst

Hope i helped. Feel free to ignore.And thanks for your deck idea, maybe i try it sometime, it's really full of possibilities.

Catalog9000 on Any cards with similar triggers ...

I'm wondering if anybody knows of a card similar to Impact Tremors, but instead of dealing it to opponents, I can deal it to target creature.

I'm looking to build another shit-deck (Because they're hilarious when they go off) involving Hornet Nest + Lifelink (In any capacity) + Archangel of Thune.

I'm going to ping Nest for 1 damage, which because of the lifelink I gain +1 life, so my Nest gets a +1/+1 counter.

Then I get my 1/1 Deathtouch Flyer. When my DF token enters the battlefield, I'm looking for some sort of automatic trigger to occur, similarly to Impact Tremors, where I can deal the 1 damage back to my Nest, getting another 1/1 DF token, +1 life, and another +1/+1 counter on everything.

(And yes, I am aware that since I control both triggers I can have the DF token enter first, THAN I put the +1/+1 counter on everything.)

Because I'd be trading 1 point of damage for a +1/+1 counter, Nest would never die. She'd always be a few Toughness ahead.

Think of it like the whole Boros Reckoner trick with Lifelink + Indestructible - only I get infinite DF tokens, too.

Also: Yes, I am aware that Bellowing Aegisaur does it for 1 mana more but uses fewer cards. I plan on incorporating this guy as well.

You either need Parallel Lives or Doubling Season in here with all that token gen. Hornet Queen or Hornet Nest would be a good addition too. For your minimal saproling synergy Tendershoot Dryad is a maybe; it's not like you'll have trouble getting the city's blessing

CivilizedSin on Superstition, Fear, & Jealousy | Sidisi EDH

Hey, thanks a ton for the recommendations! The bow, to me, doesn't serve as much purpose as I'd like against flyers- by only dealing 2 damage, the biggest threat I feel like it could take out would be a Kaalia of the Vast (not to say that's not a highly important, but it's extremely narrow in a matchup I'd likely be on the back foot from the getgo anyway), and I believe it's main role would be, as you'd mentioned previously, anti-graveyard-hate (anti-anti-graveyard?).

Bitterblossom is one of my favorite cards of all time! Unfortunately, this deck has zero lifegain, and plans on running every single fetch and shock land it can. Despite being a 40 life format, the addition of Bitterblossom when I'm already paying so much just to maintain my land/colour consistency would put me on a very real clock compared to some other EDH decks.

You've already outlined my main aversions for Chronozoa and Hornet Nest, although the latter is somewhat more appealing because I'm inherently a fan of kitchen table politics, and it's a huge enabler of such.

However, when it comes to Nyx Weaver, I think you're right. It does everything I want it to do- stocks the graveyard, blocks a flier, and recurs an important piece as needed. I'm thinking of rotating Creeping Corrosion back out for it- thoughts?

The rest of the cards mentioned are a little too linear for my tastes- this deck thrives on it's flexibility, and unfortunately the rest mentioned shoehorn themselves into their specific roles. Spidersilk Armor is probably the most intriguing, but ends up as not only a dead slot in hand if my opponent's air force isn't threatening, but is also a dead slot in the grave due to the fact of it being a non-creature. Unfortunately, the same can be said for Corrosive Gale!

I'm thinking of rotating in Bone Shredder. Whether this ends up being in place of Shriekmaw or in addition to it remains to be seen. It seems like quite a mana investment (even at just ), but with the potential to kill one flyer and then block another, it seems like it may be worth... Although I'm not entirely convinced yet.

Lastly, I've gotten a few games in with Path of Discovery and I gotta say I'm seriously impressed- every game it's been in my hand I've windmill slammed it onto the table as soon as possible, and have gotten fantastic value out of it. Similar to Embalmer's Tools, it's usually overlooked by opponents until it's too late and I enjoy that a lot! So thank you!
