Hunter's Insight Discussion

hkhssweiss on Uril ramp/control

1 week ago

sriah001 Hmm I know you said that a few goals of yours are to control the board through Wraths, but what about just making Uril a huge enough threat where that doesn't matter.

Some card draws I can think right off the bat for Uril are Sylvan Library, Sensei's Divining Top, Commune with Lava, Hunter's Insight, Sage's Reverie, Sixth Sense, and Keen Sense.

If your going for more of an enchantress type build there are other card drawing options in terms of Enchantress's Presence, Sram, Senior Edificer, Satyr Enchanter, Mesa Enchantress, Kor Spiritdancer, Argothian Enchantress.

Some general cards I would recommend for Uril as well would be: Rancor, Shielded by Faith, Messenger's Speed, Ethereal Armor, Hyena Umbra, and Spirit Mantle.

Hope that helps!

Hc_Clan on Trostani’s Expanding Population

How does this deck do after board wipes? I've seen a good amount of Trostani decks that fold after a board wipe. Might I recommend Heroic Intervention and Rootborn Defenses for board wipe assurance. It looks like you also might want to add in more draw, Elemental Bond, Rishkar's Expertise and (if you like swinging sideways) Hunter's Insight. Mentor of the Meek and Dawn of Hope are also solid inclusions for reliable card draw. Here is a link to my Trostani build if you're interested. Happy deck building!

Spirits on Kick Ass Kitty Kats

Hi foxes101,

Do you have a specific budget in mind, Under $40, Under $50?

I do have a $50 budget Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist which is a cat-only tribal deck, Mirri, Little Kid Aggro $50 EDH. Might find some interesting budget ideas in there.

I also have a non-budget Arahbo, Roar of the World, it's still a work-in-process, Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH

Riptide Replicator seems really awful, it requires for a cat, so your hoping it's at least 5/5 or more, which means the initial cost is =5 + = . That's a terrible conversion. I understand you want to build your board position since your cats pump each other, but Riptide Replicator is not the way to go.

Stir the Pride is way too high a CMC for it's modular (or Entwine) abilities. I would take that one out.

Bloodline Shaman I assume is trying to help the draw, which in turn kind-of helps the Bonehoard as well, so let's go with that for now, but is an Elf, not a cat. Creative budget drawing at least.

Qasali Slingers is a nice control for Artifacts and Enchantments, plus hes a 3/5 reach.

Balan, Wandering Knight might consider, but with only 13 equipment targets, understand why he's not in there.

Jazal Goldmane might be a bit better, because he's 4/4 first strike, but he can pump all the horde of cats.

Beastmaster Ascension feels like 100% necessary in this, to pump all your 1/1 token cats. I think this will be a primary goal for winning in this budget format.

Hunter's Insight is a better draw then some of the "janky" draw mechanics in budget, to a lesser degreeSoul's Majesty / Hunter's Prowess also work but are Sorcery and susceptible to instant removal.

Skyhunter Skirmisher has build in evasion and double strike (cat) if you can get him an Equipment or 2. Rancor?

Crown of Vigor is not every exciting a 1-shot +1/+1, with a static +1/+1 for 1 creature, not fantastic.

Mask of Memory might help with the draw as well.

Hungry Lynx, originally I thought this guy would be amazing, but all he does is create problems (deathtouch rats), and I've never had him successfully pump my cats before being removed. I took him out, mechanic didn't work.

Uktabi Wildcats, this guy only worthwhile if you have 5 Forest, remember, Tranquil Expanse / Selesnya Sanctuary are not forest unless they say "Forest" on them, so with a max size of 11, he's rarely going to be a 5, so no other abilities, not worth the CMC .

Do you not find you get board-wiped and that is the end? I would run at least a couple protections, like Make a Stand or Rootborn Defenses or Dusk (recur all power 2 - 19 targets right now).

Soul Snare is another janky type Condemn, always Oblivion Ring.

Whitemane Lion combos infinite with lost of , but enablers might not work in the budget. There is Infinite creature (several) enablers, Infinite Ramp enablers, etc. Him and Fleetfoot Panther run the show. Could be an interesting way to get some combo going, not sure how combos are viewed in your budget pod.

Lost Leonin can also put some infect pressure on people, but without support (like Silverblade Paladin/Ajani, Caller of the Pride/that white enchantment that gives 1 creature double strike/etc to make him a single hit kill. He's still a 2 hit-Eminence win-con though. Unless no infect allowed, he will eliminate players just with Eminence on occasion. If you can Grappling Hook him or enable doublestrike elsewise (like Raksha Golden Cub). Often he comes out early enough. It's my initial strategy in my Arahbo, Roar of the World but I use mass-creature tutor.

+1.

hkhssweiss on Gishath, Prehistoric Rabble Rouser

Hunter's Insight is a good way for you to get some burst draw after swinging. With Gishath top deck manipulation is key so I would recommend cards like Sylvan Library, Mirri's Guile, even Scroll Rack for the times cards gets congested in your hand. Nature's Lore and Three Visits are some additional ramp cards, and Exploration can help get that early Gishath.

I agree with what sagramore is saying, pick a theme with how you want to construct your deck and go from there. From the comments and the way you want to go, which is going wide than stick to anthem like effects and equipments that will help you build your army and ramp.

Since you said you are on a tight budget I'll list some cards that are less than $5 that might be able to help you out.

Rampant Growth, Cultivate, Farseek, Faith's Reward, Wrath of God, Hunter's Insight, Relic Seeker, Auriok Steelshaper, Steelshaper Apprentice, Angel of Jubilation, Remember the Fallen, Cathars' Crusade, Behemoth Sledge, Qasali Pridemage, Leonin Warleader, Prowling Serpopard, Reclamation Sage, and Krosan Grip.

Hope some of the cards listed would be able to help you out!

@SaintGhostt: Beast Whisperer is a good way to draw cards. You could also try Greater Good, Life's Legacy, Momentous Fall, Hunter's Insight, Soul's Majesty, Regal Force, Shamanic Revelation, and Collective Unconscious. My cousin runs most of those in his Ghalta deck and they really help him keep up his momentum.
