Horseshoe Crab Discussion

I'm surprised nobody yet has made a deck around Horseshoe Crab + Heavy Arbalest. Or Horseshoe Crab and Retraction Helix/Banishing Knack.

Now, I'm off to brew something up.

So the thought is to abuse his ETB effect. Two ways that are easy to accomplish this are copying him and exiling him repeatedly.

Pack Rat and Myr Propagator are self reliant copy cards

Grim Monolith and Basalt Monolith provide mana. (there are plenty more cards that do the same)

Horseshoe Crab, Soliton , Torchling , and Morphling allow for untaping.

AEtherling, Deadeye Navigator, and Inalla, Archmage Ritualist are the only exile cards I can think of. I am sure there are more.

So basic idea repeat ETB effect using Mairsil, the Pretender to either copy or exile himself. Do this while generating mana for draw engines and whatever else will be in the deck.

Any other cards I am missing? Other tactics?

Remember untap effects for abuse- things like Horseshoe Crab seem terrible but are sweet here.

Mairsil + Anthroplasm + Sage of Hours = infinite turns.

Mairsil + Deadeye Navigator + Lightning Greaves + Gilded Lotus = Infinite mana. Gilded Lotus replacable with Prismatic Geoscope.

Marisol + Havengul Lich + Mana Echoes with Crosis's Attendant exiled under mari = infinite casts and etbs. Any additional wizards causes infinite colorless mana. Marisol with Arcanis the Omnipotent and Horseshoe Crab is u draw 3 every turn. Most of the blue kraj interactions work with him. Cool dude, probably my next deck t3

Voolfina thanks for commenting! I've looked at Gilder Bairn and I've decided that Gyre Sage and Argothian Elder are my go to for mana, but the star players in this deck are Horseshoe Crab and Simic Ragworm, because in combination with the guys who create mana, steal creatures, and add counters, the untapping is KEY! That's why I have Body Double to stand in if my buddies get wiped. I appreciate the feedback!

@hosshughes: Yeah guess I should have checked Reddit first. I'm glad you still found some uses for it though; that combo with Contested War Zone + Mirrorweave is hilarious. I had another thought (sorry my suggestions are so spread out, I comment them when I think of them). I think Diluvian Primordial might be good, since it casts an instant or sorcery for each of your opponents, possibly triggering your commander multiple times. I guess you could add Luminate Primordial if you really needed to. He doesn't really synergize in any way with the deck, he's basically just a Swords to Plowshares for each of your opponents. I think most of the Ravnica Primordials have good effects and are fairly budget, so I guess they're more of a general suggestion for any of your budget decks you make. Also, if you are taking deck suggestions, I would love to see you make a commander deck for Experiment Kraj. Messing around with activated abilities can be really fun, especially with things like Horseshoe Crab and Krosan Restorer. I currently run a Kraj deck and would be able to offer more suggestions if you'd like.

Hi! First thing: tribal is love; unused tribal is life. Passing to businness:

Lastly, i would suggest to splash Green for Shambleshark and, most important, Assault Formation. The latter would give consistency to your tactic and would make playable Hedron Crab and Horseshoe Crab, which has a useful Vigilance-like ability.
