Inexorable Tide


Whenever you cast a spell, proliferate. (You choose any number of permanents and/or players with counters on them, then give each another counter of a kind already there.)

Inexorable Tide Discussion

Osbert on atraxa +1 +1 old

On the proliferate theme Inexorable Tide does huge work. It does feel like a 5 mana investment that does nothing immediately but if it stick it has some serious potential.

I don't think the storage lands are super expensive and they're an easy way for Atraxa deck to ramp. The storage lands are Saltcrusted Steppe , Dreadship Reef , etc.

All my other suggestions are way beyond $5 sorry :p

I would lose Etrata for sure. Bloodtracker seems bad unless you stock up on Proliferate effects like Inexorable Tide . Patron of the Vein, too. If there's a part of this deck that needs to go, it's the vampire subtheme.

If you were going on counters you could put Simic Ascendancy , Vorel of the Hull Clade , Inexorable Tide and also Biogenic Upgrade . Can I also steal some ideas to put into my own deck, on tapped out?

As a disclaimer, some of these are not perfect 1:1 replacements. Essentially, any card on the remove side can be swapped for any card in the replace side. Remove-Replace Blind Obedience - Kismet : Slowing down your opponent's lands is huge and will make you "faster" in comparison

Good-Fortune Unicorn - Collective Effort : GFU is just too small of an effect to take up a slot here. CE is more flexible, plus at instant speed.

Yisan, the Wanderer Bard - Bloodspore Thrinax : Yisan needs a deck built for her, which this def isn't. Thrinax replaces the Unicorn.

Tolsimir Wolfblood - Leyline of Abundance : Tolsimir is just too weak for what he does. The leyline works well with your mana dorks.

Huatli's Raptor - Mikaeus, the Lunarch : HR is low cost, which implies it will come out early, but it really works best midgame. Mikaes scales to any point in the game and can proliferate faster with all your "untap creatures" effects.

Anafenza, the Foremost - Myth Realized : Ana is simply too narrow. Myth will give you a strong creature even if someone wipes all the creatures on the field.

Hadana's Climb  Flip- Luminarch Ascension : Hadana is nice, but mana-hungry and a bit slow for what it does. LA can churn out angels as early as turn 4 if you can get atraxa out before it.

Temple of the False God - Gavony Township : 4 color decks don't like temple, as a rule, but Gavony is a great mana sink late game

Eternity Vessel - Cauldron of Souls : Since +1/+1 counters negative counters, you'll always be able to save your creatures from a wipe with Persist.

Contentious Plan - Solidarity of Heroes : Even if you never use the strive cost, instant speed doubling can win you the game with an unblocked creature and 1 G mana.

Inexorable Tide - Unbreakable Formation : IT is flashy, but slow to build up. UF is cheap, can save your creatures from a wipe, and if cast during your main phase, basically gives you a free combat round with no consequences.

Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter - Oona's Blackguard : Yanguu is too slow and vulnerable. OB can really slow down your opponents when they're losing cards each turn.

Caustic Caterpillar - Black Sun's Zenith : You have tons of artifact/enchantment removal and without graveyard recursion, CC is just too small. BSZ can be cast for X=1 and then can be proliferated. Plus it recurs itself.

Lighthouse Chronologist - Inspiring Call : Don't kid yourself with extra turns. Saving all of your creatures while drawing cards is where it's at.

A few cards I found that would work great in this deck, but had no easy replacements: Gleam of Authority , Together Forever , Orochi Hatchery , Citadel Siege , and (I know you used to have it here) Vorel of the Hull Clade

Gilder Bairn could be a good addition if you can find a good way to tap him so you can use his ability.

Clockspinning with the buyback could be good to put a counter on.

Some of the good proliferate stuff would probably be Karn's Bastion , Inexorable Tide , Evolution Sage , and Flux Channeler

If I have two Inexorable Tide on the battlefield, do they stack? Would I get to proliferate twice, essentially?
