Increasing Savagery Discussion

So, if your LGS has a lot of aggro players, you should add Kitchen Finks. If you want to keep the deck budget, maybe Life Goes On.

Anyways, Ranger's Guile should be replaced by Blossoming Defense, which is just a better card.

Since you are running a sub theme of plus one plus one counters, Experiment One is good, and Avatar of the Resolute also works well. Dismember is awesome for removal. Hardened Scales would help boost the plus one plus on scheme if you choose to go into it.

You are also running some pretty big cards, and I think that Utopia Sprawl would really fit the deck well. It combos amazingly well with Arbor Elf.

Increasing Savagery is pretty spicy, but since you are running mono green, I think you should throw in Aspect of Hydra. It's really cheap (mana and money) and is increasingly useful late game. You could also take out 4 forests for 4 Hashep Oasis, which can pump your creatures if you run out of action in your hand.

Anyways, cool deck and good luck

Again, thank you all for the suggestions.

Madmethis: The main problem is that I really love the brutality of Increasing Savagery and, thus, I will probably leave in the deck. Intriguingly, it is quite often my finishing card.

Another evasion like Treetop Bracers or Dragon Fangs sounds good, I will put in maybe for now and do some playtests with them.

Hi there,

I really like your Idea.But i think Increasing Savagery has a bit too high mana cost.

I Would try Dragon Fangs or at least Primal Frenzy to get more trample on the board.

Maybe you could cheat in Keen Sense somewhere for carddraw?

Just my ideas.

I understand where you are coming from with Hardened Scales. I'm just remembering how hilarious it was when I would play T1 Birds of Paradise T2 Primordial Hydra T3 Increasing Savagery in standard.

if you like Deadbridge Goliath you might like Increasing Savagery. It's a little off your current theme but, its a strong card to have 1-2 in the deck and it loves Predator Ooze and Primordial Hydra

Long ass advice incoming:

[ [ island ] ]

(If you remove the spaces inbetween the brackets) > Island

1x Adventuring Gear 1x Ajani Goldmane 1x Ajani's Chosen 2x Ajani's Mantra, 1x Ajani's Pridemate 1x Ajani, Mentor of Heroes 1x Arctic Nishoba 1x Behemoth Sledge 1x Call of the Conclave 2x Emeria Angel 1x Felidar Sovereign 14x Forest 1x Gather the Townsfolk 2x Grazing Gladehart 1x Grove of the Guardian 1x Guardians' Pledge 1x Increasing Savagery 1x Jedit Ojanen of Efrava 1x Kemba, Kha Regent 1x Oath of Gideon 16x Plains 2x Precinct Captain 2x Pride Sovereign 1x Primal Bellow 2x Regal Caracal 1x Retreat to Emeria 1x Selesnya Charm 1x Staff of the Wild Magus 1x Terra Stomper1x Blossoming Sands

Just a hint if you come looking for help in the future :)

The first thing I would like to add is that you are playing way too much land. In a 60 card deck with a steap mana curve, you probably only want 24-25 lands. Now your deck is currently 64. That's not too bad, but if you could shave it down to 60 that'll be doing yourslef a sall favor. (Consistancy is just lovely.)

Secondly, I can spot a few cards that I either find too bad to play, imo, or doesn't really fit your strategy too well.

Ajani's Mantra and Staff of the Wild Magus fit's your strat reasonably well, but are both really bad overall cards, and they don't help you close out games.

Ajani's Chosen The card is perfectly reasoable as is right now, if not a little too clonky, but if you decide to take my advice on the Mantra's it's probably not playable afterwards.

Felidar Sovereign Awesome as it is, seems like a very unlikely wincondition for you. If you ever get to a point where it would win you the game, you are probably already winnning.

You have a couple more cards, that I'm a bit unhappy with, but are reasonable for the moment being.

Thirdly if you want to play a slower deck, you have to be able to interact.

If you can't answer the things your opponent does from time to time, you are going to lose to a lot of combo decks.

Fourthly: Here are some cards I hink you should look into, priced around the 1$ mark, or less. (If you want that lifegain theme to stick)

Qasali Pridemage Realy powerful card, that happens to be a cat, and can sometimes "interact" with opposing gameplans.

More Ajani's Pridemate - It's a great finisher, if you have some lifegain.

Nyx-Fleece Ram, not the best card in the world, but a good replacement for Ajani's Mantra.

Condemn - Cheap creature removal.

Lone Rider  Flip - Only play this if you really into life gain.

Soul's Attendant / Soul Warden are wuite good with tokens, and Ajani's Pridemate

More Blossoming Sands, fixing mana gaining life.

Blessed Alliance - Everthing goo in this world.

Eidolon of Rhetoric - put this in your sideboard, you wont regret it.

You are more than welcome to ask me for advice if you need an experienced player for something :) and good luck.

Gyre Sage is insane with Increasing Savagery. (Even more so with Corpsejack Menace is play.)

It also let's you cast some early Kalonian Hydras.
