Howling Mine Discussion

precociousapprentice on Marchesa, Political Queen of Pillows

1 hour ago

She is my daughter playing a Phelddagrif Aikido deck I am working on with her. "Hey, I'll give you a hippo and a card if you can take out his commander right now." Gifts, clones, stealing, pillow fort, green rattle snakes, and a purple winged hippo. She had been envious of my Marchesa for a while, but when she saw the potential of the gifting purple hippo, she immediately started deck building. I am helping her tune it. Right now we need to work on card draw. We have it disguised as a typical group hug deck with things like Howling Mine, Propaganda, and Ghostly Prison, but I outpaced her with card draw using The Monarch and snake tokens to collect cards off of an Edric our opponent was playing. She didn't get her card draw, chose to Clever Impersonator a No Mercy instead of the Edric, and when she Control Magic'd Marchesa from me, she never got an assassin token in for damage to steal The Monarch due to a Maze of Ith, a Kor Haven, and an Ophiomancer. I just outdrew her, collected 3 tutors and a wish, and then went for the kill. I had Disrupt Decorum Remanded twice before she Counterspelled it. She put up a remarkable fight, considering. I think her Phelddagrif Aikido will end up pretty brutal. Not at all oppressive, since it will play like my Marchesa, but will surprise a lot of people expecting the cute blonde girl with the purple hippo to be playing group hug, only to catch their own creatures and combos in their faces for a loss.

Azdranax on Nekusar's Wheels of Death

Looks like you are well on your way to a really solid deck. That said, may I suggest some quick and sneaky additions as well. You should try to find space for Bloodchief Ascension, Mindcrank and Duskmantle Guildmage - excellent synergy with the Nekusar build, but not necessarily obvious to players not familiar with the combos they create. Because the CMCs of these are very fast, with no tapping required, you create yet another opportunity to kill your opponent with either damage or discard as the trigger, both of which are already plentiful in the deck. To that end, Anvil of Bogardan can be sneaky in replacing a Howling Mine, as it will trigger an infinite loop kill on it's own with the Mindcrank and either one of the other two activated cards.

Spirits I'll just start where I left off: Oreskos Explorer seemed to make sense when I was building the deck, in that it's a form of land searching that Arahbo can buff, and while I have actually used it's ability successfully a few times, I can't help but think that now that some other unconditional ramp spell would be more effective.

I quite like Sylvan Reclamation personally, partially due to the land cycling. Aura Shards and by extension, Qasali Slingers do attract quite a bit of hate and from experience don't last very long so it useful in that sense as well. I am pretty light on creature removal though as a result.

I won't lie, the idea of running Rhonas as actually hugely attractive to me, used him in modern a lot and he's such a powerful card. Great idea, I'll definitely look at putting him in somewhere. Same goes for Sylvan Library.

Finally, I looked into it further and it seems that you're correct about what you're saying regarding Howling Mine and Rites of Flourishing.

Thanks for the upvote! I'll definitely check your deck out. I get the impression that you're trying to build a far better one than I am but I'll try be of some use.

Hi Dancing-Blade, using your deck to help build my own version of Arahbo, Roar of the World, Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats

Noticed you have Lifelink, like Basilisk Collar/Loxodon Warhammer/Ajani, Mentor of Heroes/Etc. Why no Felidar Sovereign do you find you dont get over that 40 life barrier? Just interested, I was thinking of running him as an alternate-win con.

Does Godsend do enough work for it's High CMC? I originally thought about it, but it doesn't stop Commanders because they never get exiled by it, and Commander as it is, unless you run up against a heavy unburial deck does it do much else?

How have you found Hungry Lynx, I keep looking at him and thinking nope, when rats die awesome, but what if I load up my opponents with deathtouch rates, they remove the Hungry Lynx now I'm walking my cats into 1/1 deathtouch that I provided them, that sucks.

Oreskos Explorer being green and ramping, you usually have more lands than opponents? Is it worth the risk of not drawing him turn 1-4 where he might be viable?

Suprised to see Sylvan Reclamation, with so much artifact/enchantment control, Aura Shards, Qasali Slingers, Return to Dust etc, this one is HIGH CMC, but I'm guessing you just Cycle it and move on for the CMC2, and if you need it, then you have it?

I noticed ZendikariWol posted about Howling Mine and Alms Collector and Rites of Flourishing, I haven't posted on the community, but my gut tells me that doesn't work. Drawing an "additional" card, is not the same as "would draw two or more". I stand to be corrected but, Alms Collector with check on the turn draw, only 1 ok nothing, check on resolving the Howling Mine triggered ability, only 1 ok nothing, same for Rites of Flourishing. A Wheel of Fortune or Blue Sun's Zenith for sure there he makes his mark, but I think ZendikariWol assessment is incorrect.

I've had success with Rhonas the Indomitable, he is 5/5 Indestructible/Deathtouch for CMC3 and can always attack with ANY cat on the board. Although, he is not a Cat, he can give a Cat trample if it's blocked.

No Sylvan Library?

But with Howling Mine or Rites of Flourishing and Alms Collector, you draw 5 cards a round in 4-player.

Sorry for the comment flood, but also Howling Mine and Rites of Flourishing are killers w/ Alms Collector.

The classic TurboFog decks have all had ways to draw extra cards in order to keep the steady stream of Fogs going until they can find their win conditions. You have Revs, but those are kind of slow. Rites of Flourishing is also a very risky card against aggro. I'd be considering cards like Jace Beleren and Howling Mine.
