Hua Tuo, Honored Physician Discussion

Hi,

We would add Impact Tremors (maybe replace Blood Artist as that card only targets single opponents). Some great token generators we are missing would be Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet , Mycoloth and Krenko, Mob Boss . Some graveyard interaction would not hurt either. Cards that come to mind are Hua Tuo, Honored Physician , Feldon of the Third Path , Meren of Clan Nel Toth , Mimic Vat and Sheoldred, Whispering One .

Happy brewing!

Regards,

Mrs. and Mr. NV_1980

Kingdomsteel on Reki, the History of Kamigawa: Legendfall

Hey man, love your list!

I'm running a Reki myself and been having tons of fun with it. If I may just drop some suggestions here:

Honor-Worn Shaku , my god this over performs in many ways. It's no legendary but it works well with any legendary.

Sakiko, Mother of Summer This beast pumps out heavy mana in your second main phases and has great synergy with your Omnath, Locus of Mana . I'd switch her with Sashi, Daughter of Seshiro. You don't have that much snakes or shamans to make her that important imo.

Sasaya, Orochi Ascendant Goes GREAT with Rites of Spring Imagine one forest tapping for 11 mana...

The Great Henge Is jsut ONE of those cards..

Patron of the Orochi Also very nice with Honor-Worn Shaku or any form of mana doubler.

Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger Because salty tears taste best with Vorinclex on the field.

Nissa, Worldwaker just the +1 to untap FOUR FORESTS.. and let's not get started over the -7. There are many other planeswalker I run in my deck but this one definitely stands out for me.

Bow of Nylea has so much possibility's and potential in an entire EDH match, don't underestimate this card.

Hua Tuo, Honored Physician Helped me get some stuff out of the graveyard lategame. Pretty awesome.

Jiang Yuanggu, Wildcrafter goes together well with your Rishkar, Peema Renegade AND generates more potential for mana dorks. Leyline of Abundance is a definite recommendation with this.

Alrighty roo, let's spend 10 minutes fixing your deck

Thoughts

Aluren + Cloudstone Curio + any 2 legends 3 CMC or below = draw your deck.

Don't run Reap . It depends on opponents board state to function, meaning it is unreliable.

You are running Snow-Covered Forest but don't have Mouth of Ronom slotted. Low opportunity cost land that allows mono G to have a targeted creature nuke.

Add Prismatic Vista for increased deckthinning.

There are a whole host of other legendary cards you can be running that are 3 CMC or less. Replace any combat oriented or random buff artifacts/creature (most of the 2/3/4 CMC legendary artifacts, and also Skyship Weatherlight) with some of the following

Voltaic Key works with Paradox Engine and Sensei's Divining Top to draw deck. You already slot the other two. Key also lets you ramp or get value from other artifacts.

Inventors' Fair opens many winning lines from many board states, usually by fetching Paradox. Expedition Map lets you get to Inventors' Fair more often.

You should really up creature tutor density, and add some value targets. Eldritch Evolution Chord of Calling Finale of Devastation Natural Order Time of Need Woodland Bellower Summoner's Pact Uncage the Menagerie Weird Harvest

Adding in value creatures that can be grabbed from tutors gives you a far greater chance to escape from nasty artifacts/enchantments Caustic Caterpillar Reclamation Sage Manglehorn

Burgeoning Mirri's Guile Earthcraft and Oath of Nissa have far less value here than you think. I would cut them all, except possibly Earthcraft due to how well it works with Paradox engine. You should add Squirrel Nest as an alternate wincon if you keep it.

Why are you running Strip Mine ? You run no other stax pieces and no land recursion.

Those Who Forget History are Doomed to Lose to it.

RIP Kamigawa (Legend Tribal)

Saskia: the Stuff of Legends

Big Sassy's Legendary Horde (note: Big Sassy as a nickname for Saskia can be used in any of these names)

Legendary Night at Saskia's Bar

History Has its Eyes on You (it's a musical reference, if you don't get it)

That's all I got for names- this one was tough! Now, suggestions:

Adun Oakenshield is okay recursion, Anafenza, the Foremost is a good body, Captain Lannery Storm is good ramp, Dosan the Falling Leaf is good against control, Grand Warlord Radha is great ramp, Hua Tuo, Honored Physician is good recursion, Isamaru, Hound of Konda is a gud boi (and a one-drop), Kambal, Consul of Allocation is good taxation without representation, Karador, Ghost Chieftain is SICK and also very flavorfully appropriate for this deck, Kothophed, Soul Hoarder is great draw, Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip is a good body, Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist is good protection, Ravos, Soultender is good recursion, Rhonas the Indomitable is good but you'll have to see if you like God-Eternal Rhonas better (I like OG Rhonas better unless your repeating God-Eternal's ETB), Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper is good block deterrence, one of the Tajics ( Tajic, Blade of the Legion or Tajic, Legion's Edge ), both are good bodies, Tana, the Bloodsower is good body + chump blockers, Tariel, Reckoner of Souls is good recursion, Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor is good fun, and Zurgo Helmsmasher is a surprisingly fun political piece.

Also, I'd really recommend you include planeswalkers, and also you're running two Selvalas and two Odrics.

Hey friend, in my own Xenagod deck, I just traded out my Feldon of the Third Path for Hua Tuo, Honored Physician . I have yet to really test it much, but for the cost of a little speed I've found it to be a little more reliable. Not by much though, just for the fact that you actually get the creature back instead of just a copy.

Hi,

Yavimaya Hollow is a nice recursion option. We also like Hua Tuo, Honored Physician ; especially when combo'd with Vizier of the Menagerie .

Not super keen on Golgari Findbroker due to its CMC but its OK here, esp. since you got a lot of enchantments and like saccing lands (otherwise I'd ask you to reconsider Hua Tuo, Honored Physician ). The rest are fine too.

livingrock on Gishath hungry! Gishath want eat!

Caltrops is good if you are emphasizing Enrage. I think your use of Hua Tuo, Honored Physician here is clever. You can use Noxious Revival for the same effect, and if Gishath dies in combat you can cast it as a response to put her on top of your deck from the graveyard so she hits the field from your own trigger.

I would cut Harmonize . You're going to be thinning out your deck so much with Gishath triggers that I don't feel the deck needs a ton of draw. Just imo.
