Keen Sense Discussion

griffstick on Stompy Stompy

OK first I want to point out the exclusions, cards I don't think fit

Borborygmos Enraged, he isn't a very good card unless you build around him. If you build around him a lil bit you will need cards like Snake Umbra, Keen Sense, and cards to combo with that like Skyship Weatherlight or Abundance to combo off so you draw lands over and over again. Otherwise he is over costed and not very good.

Majestic Myriarch is not a very strong card because of its huge downside. The card needs a team of creatures with him or her to be good. If your gonna keep this card you'll need to build a bit of a token deck to make it worth keeping. With cards like. Dragonlair Spider, Wolfcaller's Howl, Wolfbriar Elemental, Verdant Force, Tempt with Vengeance, Symbiotic Wurm, Sylvan Offering, Hornet Queen, Feed the Pack, Dragon Broodmother, Artifact Mutation, Arachnogenesis, and Ant Queen. These are also all good card suggestions.

Apocalypse Hydra is not a very good card. Gruul Ragebeast is a better spell. Or maybe Savage Ventmaw

Zendikar Incarnate is okay but Wilderness Elemental is faster off the ground making it slightly better. Everyone plays non basic lands first.

Undergrowth Champion is only good in the early game. Maybe Selvala, Heart of the Wilds to speed you up to the late game.

Ulvenwald Hydra, this card is great if your getting a really good land card from it like. Gaea's Cradle or Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx or whatever else seems good.

I'd drop both retreats exspecialy Retreat to Valakut these cards are not that strong. I'd put Lotus Cobra in its place

Gruul Signet, Gruul Keyrune, and Darksteel Ingot I'd take out for land ramp. The kinds that add them to your hand and or play. Cards like Kodama's Reach (you have in the deck all ready). Seek the Horizon, Journey of Discovery you also might like Harvest Season, Evolution Charm is great too.

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.

Logics on Let the lands do the talking (Borborygmos Budget)

1 month ago

Seeing as your deck is budget, I'll try to keep the suggestions under $3. I just made a BoBo deck, so here's a few cards that have been great for me.

Dormant Volcano and Jungle Basin are worse Gruul Turfs, but they're still amazing in this deck, working wonders with the high basic count, and giving you more ammunition for BoBo.

Swiftfoot Boots, Journeyer's Kite, and Firewild Borderpost are all amazing for BoBo as well, either putting him online faster, or giving more fuel and making it more consistant to cast your spells even with a land light draw if you're unlucky.

Soul's Majesty, and Rishkar's Expertise can both draw you a tonne of cards with BoBo, and the latter even lets you cast another spell for free. I also like Realms Uncharted, but it's better in my build than this one due to a higher non-basic land count. Any lands with Cycling are also great, as they can give you extra card draw if you don't need the damage, or need to dig for answers.

Keen Sense and Snake Umbra a sooooooo goooood in this deck, allowing you to draw a card anytime a land goes to the face of an opponent. These 2 cards are probably 2 of the most powerful effects in the deck, with the latter actually protecting BoBo as well.

Lastly, Greenwarden of Murasa is a budget Eternal Witness, and is great in most green decks, this one included. It gets back anything, not just lands, which can save your life.

Hope any of this is helpful, and doesn't break the bank too bad.

Again, I really don't think that Jungle Delver is good enough. It's ability is much too expensive to use, and it is just a 1/1 for 1 mana. I'd go with Triton Shorestalker instead then.

Stonybrook Banneret only reduces colorless mana, so a Triton Shorestalker would not be affected, neither would Master of the Pearl Trident.

As for the Navigator's Ruin, I'm sure you could find more suited cards for the deck, but if you like it, keep it. The usual problem with milling like this, is that your opponent will be dead from being slapped in the face long before they are milled to death. Milling the opponent definitely could annoy them though, but against other decks such as re-animators or delve, you'd just be helping the opponent.

It's up to you whether or not you want to keep some removal, but I would highly recommend running some. A deck without removal is just putting itself in danger, and I'd almost never run a deck without 4 removal spells.

I also really would consider some draw spells, because there's no worse feeling than topdecking and just drawing useless stuff all the time. Blue is the master of draw spells, with stuff like Opt, Serum Visions, Sleight of Hand, Anticipate, Telling Time, Thirst for Knowledge, Distant Melody or Curiosity. For green you can go with Keen Sense or Warriors' Lesson.

I personally like the Cold-Eyed Selkie as it will easily draw you 3-4 cards with some of your buffers in play, but if you can't get that then so be it.

The artifacts I threw in the maybeboard are indeed expensive, but might prove to be lethal in tribal decks. You can look into them at a later point after playtesting with the deck.

Remember that you can always alter your decks, mine are still being altered 2 years after I've made them.

Since you are going Voltron, go all in. It's already a glass cannon anyway, so you might as well embrace it.

You need a lot more draw. You may be able to get better draw from auras like Keen Sense, Sixth Sense, Angelic Gift, etc. White and Red are terrible at draw, so you'll have to rely on green and artifacts for better draw. Sylvan Library, Harmonize, Hunter's Insight, and Soul's Majesty will work for your deck. Also using the enchantress package your using now will work great. Shoot for around 10 Draw spells.

Next, you need a lot more ramp. You have a few spells, but you need more. Shoot either for creatures that can be used as chump blockers, or auras. Birds of Paradise, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Wood Elves, Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, Farhaven Elf and One with Nature. Shoot for around 10 designated ramp spells.

Next, lower your mana curve. Right now, your average CMC is around 3. Meaning on average, it will cost around 8 mana to cast and enchant him in one turn. So that gives your opponents 8 turns to win before you, or find an answer to him. Try to stick to mostly 1 and 2 CMC auras as much as possible, especially since Uril already gets a buff from enchanting him. If you have any sort of higher cost aura, make sure it is a blowout aura (like Ancestral Mask or Angelic Destiny).

Also, if you lower your curve, adding Genesis Wave can become an absolute devastator.

Next, since it's voltron, use evasion as much as possible. Menace, Flying, Unblockable, Trample,etc. Auras can get you there. Flickering Ward, Gryff's Boon, Kithkin Armor, Alpha Authority, Angelic Gift, Cho-Manno's Blessing, Fists of Ironwood, Giant Spectacle, etc.

Deck is coming along great! Can't wait to play against it!

I only count 2 uncommons (2x Keen Sense), assuming that the random Artisan of Kozilek is a typo and not actually a card in your deck. Armadillo Cloak is a common.

I might opt for more Gladecover Scout and less Hopeful Eidolon, possibly moving the Eidolon into your sideboard. However, I'm not a Boggles player, so I could be wrong here.

Wild Growth is another option if you want more Utopia Sprawl-esque effects.

Hyena Umbra and Spider Umbra might be worth considering.

I'm not a huge fan of cycling lands in aggro decks, since you want to be curving out, not spending time cashing in your lands for extra cards. Again, I could be wrong in this area.

You need to cut 2 cards, though having the random Artisan of Kozilek makes one cut easy.

If you need to get back your Enchantress, Eternal Witness is always a reasonable card.

MStranger on Kill It With Mountains - Borborygmos Enraged EDH

Thanks for the suggestion! I've thought about including Seismic Assault, but my concern is that it can't really go 'infinite' like Borborygmos can with Keen Sense or Snake Umbra, so you'd have to win through Praetor's Counsel + Seismic Assault or Creeping Renaissance + Seismic Assault . That might be enough to warrant its inclusion though, I'll have to test it!

fist of the suns is going to help you cast your expensive dragons a LOT. I def recommend putting that in.

Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund is essential of course, but if you needed a budget alternative to the Tyrant, Dragonlord Kolaghan will give your guys haste. Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind is an awesome combo-card and will give you card advantage all while pinging your opponents or their creatures. He goes infinite with Curiosity Ophidian Eye Snake Umbra and Keen Sense

Skyline Despot is a good dragon that produces more dragons and gives you Monarch which helps you with drawing cards as well. If someone takes monarch away from you, just throw down Stormbreath Dragon and make him monstrous, punish those control players that like to draw cards. Moonveil Dragon gives all your creatures firebreathing and that can be crazy. Dragon Mage can reset your hand and mess up an opponent or two at the same time. Scourge of the Throne is bonkers if you can afford it.

Xenagos, God of Revels + Atarka, World Render + your commander is an instant kill with commander damage.

Play a few multicolored spells with Ramos, Dragon Engine on the field and then produce some mana with him and throw down Dragonstorm. Whats better than playing cool dragons for FREE?
