NV_1980 on Xenagos: Party in a Can

Hi there,

We like this deck, so first off: +1! :)

Our Xenagos deck (which still needs to be posted) also includes some more 'extra attack' cards, which enables us to include use Xenagos' ability multiple times during the same turn. This would include cards like Combat Celebrant , Relentless Assault , Savage Beating , Seize the Day and World at War .

We thought it was also useful to grant ourselves some more free creatures on the battlefield with cards like Hibernation's End , Impromptu Raid and Lurking Predators .

Have fun concocting this brew :)

It's a lot of effort to stack your deck so you can manifest Little Miss Aeons Torn or Omniscience . The opponent will see what creature you're targeting and Fatal Push it in response.

It's the same problem Polymorph decks have, but they don't have to set up the top card. Though, now with Lazotep Plating that creates a token and gives it hexproof until end of turn, that might not be a problem anymore.

And, if you're just manifesting creatures, Impromptu Raid pretty much does what you want it to.

Solid build! Ever consider using Impromptu Raid ?

Scroll Rack is not modern legal, just like Ponder or Preordain.

TypicalTimmy has some wisdom...
You can easily choose to build RG dragons, with descendant's path & some mana dorks - and if you go the Descendants' Path route, then the "shitty dragons" like Slumbering Dragon will be pretty viable for you. (and on the top end you can cheat in all kind of nonsense with your Guild Feud)

However if you want to build around this due to the playstyle (and not as a deckbuilding challenge), then i would encourage you to foresake it.
And play UG instead.
It has pretty much the same effect, and it has redundant copies of the effect in multiple modern legal cards.
Reason / Believe being one - that even has enabler attached to it. Of course there is also Impromptu Raid (extra value with cards like Woodfall Primus), or Call of the Wild if you want to keep the creature.
Both effects are enchantments - hence expecting them to survive is reasonable.
You have support cards like Summoning Trap, See the Unwritten, Sifter Wurm and the like that can be upside in certain situations. And of course you must play the mandatory U(g) scry effects like Serum Visions, Mystic Speculation, Nissa, Steward of Elements...etc.
If you add some mana dorks you have a deck.

Osbert on Maelstrom Wanderer Aggro

A way to reuse Maelstrom wanderer might be a good idea. Words of Wind, Crystal Shard, Erratic Portal all let you pick your commander up for the cheap and abuse cascade.

A more reliable way of setting the top of your deck up for cascading might be worth a look: Cream of the Crop, Brainstorm, Scroll Rack, Sylvan Library, or Mirri's Guile. If you use many of these might as well abuse similar powerful effects like Lurking Predators, Call of the Wild, or Impromptu Raid.

With the low-ish creature count Oath of Druids can drop some scary threats very early.

Benefaction of Rhonas is a slightly better Kruphix's Insight- I'd consider running both.

There are some interesting tools in the monogreen enchantment toolbox- Asceticism is undoubtably my favourite, but you might like Bow of Nylea Crop Sigil, Rancor, Cream of the Crop, Wreath of Geists, Oath of the Ancient Wood,

Impromptu Raid/Call of the Wild are an interesting pairing for mono-green ramp lists, but rarely run well.

I reccomend focussing a little on ramping into higher cost cards- 5 drops are a lot less expensive money-wise than 4 drops in modern, and a lot of them are game changing- a well placed Plow Under or Primal Command, stacking up a Gigantiform, Gutter Grime, Lost in the Woods etc.

Impromptu Raid, or similar wincon in the side? A few times I had infinite green mana and a wish in hand while playtesting and wasn't able to win right away.

chadsansing on They're coming outta the goddamn time rifts!

I like the Jhoira and Rashmi tension a lot.

Ugin's Insight might be a flavorful way to scry. Have you ever tested Sneak Attack over Impromptu Raid? Vexing Shusher might be another fun addition to try.

Have fun!
