Kessig Cagebreakers Discussion

Wizno on They'll Catch You On the Flip Side

3 weeks ago

I appreciate your continued assistance in refining my deck some more TheACTR. Always nice to have community support. While I am considering removing some creatures, the utility creatures I would replace them with would likely make up for their loss. Adaptive Automaton and Metallic Mimic are likely 2 of my 3 slots since I could use some stronger lord-based support. I took out Vildin-Pack Outcast  Flip as I wanted a stronger big threat card. I'm leaning towards Urabrask the Hidden, Kessig Cagebreakers, or Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger in that role. I've realized that I have great early to mid-game threats but I need a few more things to be my big finish. I may cut a couple of my weaker low drop wolves/werewolves to bolster the late game threat level.

I can understand the desire to run Triumph of the Hordes to end games especially with a deck that starts a little on the lower end of the power scale.

My suggestion for a card you can swap out for Urabrask the Hidden would be Heartwood Storyteller. The punisher effect is nice but feeding resources to other decks is more than likely going to benefit them way more than it does you.

Other than that, a few all stars in my deck have been Kessig Cagebreakers, Feed the Pack, and Greater Good. Aside from the fact that the three play nice together, they all individually help. Cagebreakers makes recovering from board wipes trivial, Greater Good can help with card advantage and protects from exile removal (and if a creature is dying anyways you might as well get something out of it) and lastly Feed the Pack can turn a single buffed creature into a small army that loves Shared Animosity. Aether Vial is also nice as it is a second copy of Yisan that doesn't require mana. But for the life of me I can't think of what else you might could sub out for these possible additions.

Since you are playing a midrange reanimator combo style SBT I would suggest Kiora's Follower and Birthing Pod. Pod puts things in your graveyard, which is good while grabbing another good card and putting it into play. Follower is just a good value creature that also gets even more value of out of pod and it does fun things with bloom tender, which should get you to T&N much faster. In my experience, it is very easy to set up the deadeye navigator and mike and trike combos with pod. Also getting access to undead sidisi and peregrine drake by podding SBT is very good. You could also add Body Double or Phyrexian Delver for a toolbox effect.

For SBT, Drift of Phantasms is strictly better than Perplex. Being able to tutor for both halves of FC combo with worldly tutor or fauna shaman is very good.

Why no Jin-Gitaxis, Core Augur?

Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip checks a ton of boxes for SBT.

Here is a list of situational/low impact cards I dont think you will miss: Nyx Weaver Death Baron, Trickbind, Kessig Cagebreakers.

I think you have more than enough win conditions so the extra aggro options feel like overkill. Trickbind may be a meta call, but Swan Song is usually better imo. Nyx weaver is much weaker than baby jace imo.

Mate, I'm sorry to hear about the theft. I hope you get back into it - I'm a huge fan of your decks! In fact I think I'll put a couple together to play with a few mates, who I used to play AD&D with, that I'd like to drag into the game with me.

I'm brand-new to MTG and found this deck while looking for graveyard style decks since my intro into the game has been playing zombies on Magic Duels.

I'm putting together a version of this deck, replacing 2x Golgari Grave-Troll with 2x Golgari Thug, and the 2x Kessig Cagebreakers with 2x The Gitrog Monster and looking forward to trying it out at my first ever FNM very soon!

I love the token making and sacrifice route you can go with Meren. Cards likes Kessig Cagebreakers, Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos. Phyrexian Arena is also one of my favourite cards and I'll rarely play a black deck without it.

Have you considered Kessig Cagebreakers at all? One swing from it in this deck looks like good game right then and there.

Quilled Wolf - Cheap if needed in the early game, nice mana sink for late game.

Kessig Cagebreakers - Though not a were/wolf the tokens can get out of hand esp when your losses accumulate.

Wolf Pack - 7/6, better than trample.

Also you may want to consider some sort of recurrence for some of your key pieces, like Eternal Witness
