Imperial Recruiter Discussion

ToffMcSoft on Animar, Soul of Combos - Fun Police

2 weeks ago

Triumph of the Hordes is out, Temur Sabertooth is in. After playing a bunch of games Triumph of the Hordes was just a luxury for a win con that felt like it was very opportunistic.

Temur Sabertooth has a lot more versatility, especially being able to blink the Eldrazis

Archetype of Imagination has been dropped for Glen Elendra Archmage - the utility of constant non creature counter spell and the ability to tutor for it with Imperial Recruiter just feels much better. There have been too many times where Glen Elendra Archmage is sitting in the hand and just never gets played.

also Imperial Recruiter, Tinder Wall, Treasonous Ogre all seem good, and may even call for a new Hulk pile.

Been thinking about Blood Moon as well, but it could screw us up.

ToffMcSoft on Animar, Soul of Combos - Fun Police

2 weeks ago

@ KumaLKS - Early on I had Conduit of Ruin in the deck and always found myself dropping the other Eldrazi's without needing to cast Conduit of Ruin for the tutor.

Tutoring has never really felt like an issue, especially tutoring for the beat sticks. Fierce Empath, Fauna Shaman, Survival of the Fittest, or Genesis Hydra really have done the trick.

If you find yourself with an Infinite Animar, Soul of Elements & Genesis Hydra in hand then you're setup to grab exactly what you need at the time. Can also tutor for Genesis Hydra with Imperial Recruiter.

Another Combo which just blows up the game is Glimpse of Nature + Ancestral Statue. Typically I'll rock this out and draw 20 cards at a time. Making sure to hold or bounce Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre or Kozilek, Butcher of Truth before proceeding to discard. It's possible to mill yourself but if you've got untapped mana before kicking this combo off, you're pretty much always set. Even if the Eldrazis are in the last 10 cards of your deck, you've still most likely won at this point.

PartialPride on Competitive Food Chain Prossh

1 month ago

DavidSurita it's a good thought, but ultimately I think they are a little too narrow to include in the deck. If I was having trouble reaching Prossh I'd sooner run more two-mana mana dorks like Devoted Druid or Sylvan Caryatid which come down on turn two, sac for plus they generate at least 1 extra mana. This is much more useful in other scenarios where I can't combo or need mana to disrupt someone else's combo as well. I think the best way to be reaching Prossh is to rely on tutor chains. Things like Imperial Recruiter into Goblin Matron into Reckless Bushwhacker, or any mana dork plus Summoner's Pact for Eternal Witness then Summoner's Pact again should give you more than enough mana to cast Prossh reliably. And if you can't draw those chains naturally, I think it is perfectly acceptable to tutor for Imperial Recruiter or Summoner's Pact in order to start the chain (IF you already have/or have another way to get Food Chain and a win con).

I just 1v1'd my brother and his Animar, Soul of Elements deck. One glaring weakness I noticed is the lack of board-wipe in this build. I'm adding Skirk Fire Marshal and Blasphemous Act somehow. Mogg Infestation doesn't really count as a board-wipe. I may replace that with one of the two as well. It's not needed.

skirk fire marshall is can be sought with Moggcatcher, Goblin Matron, Goblin Recruiter, and Imperial Recruiter; not to mention Gamble. Blasphemous Act has a high CMC but it's offset by the amount of creatures I can produce onto the battlefield.
