Kessig Cagebreakers Discussion

Rzepkanut on Tishana Swarm (Needs Tuning)

Yeah mana dorks have a short lifespan against those kinds of decks. If you still want more ramp you can focus more on cards like Khalni Heart Expedition, Explosive Vegetation, Skyshroud Claim, and Ranger's Path which all get 2x lands into play at once. I know its expensive in paper but Mana Reflection is like the most amazing mana producing card ever. And a few more ideas Kessig Cagebreakers, Nacatl War-Pride and Ezuri's Predation are interesting token cards. Oooh yeah if you want to really go nuts, use Clever Impersonator or Mirage Mirror to copy fun things like Doubling Season :)

The biggest reason for the Brothers is the value they offer. Plus I didn't want to use someone like Kresh or Prossh. But with Black being king in reanimation I figured having a sac outlet would be nice. Especially with cards like Kessig Cagebreakers, Garruk Relentless, Patriarch's Bidding and the like.

Also, I second Rakdos Charm. Good card.

I definitely want to keep my focus on Token Generators, which is why I have so many slow inefficient saproling generators, thank you for pointing that out. I will probably remove them for more ramp, lands, and/or card draw. I really like have 40 lands because missing a land drop/mulliganing gives me a severe case of the feelbads, but things got really cramped really quickly.

Nemata, Grove Guardian is one of my pet cards that kind of helped inspire the deck, but you do have a point. I want to add Phyrexian Altar eventually, but I cut it for ramp over fixing (might have been the wrong choice). Bearscape because I subed it for Night Soil, but wanted to keep the card in mind just in case. The maybeboard is a hot mess, sorry about that. Warstorm Surge works with my anthems, so it can potentially be deadly. But, rereading the card, I will probably sub that out for Purphoros, God of the Forge. I don't know where he went, he is definitely one of my upgrade cards. I chose Elspeth, Knight-Errant over Elspeth, Sun's Champion because I felt like her wipe could backfire a lot with all my anthems. Same reason why Mentor of the Meek isn't in here. My meta has creature hate and counterspells more than anything else. Utter End and Anguished Unmaking float around a little, but the big thing that everyone likes is Cyclonic Rift because it's Cyclonic Rift, that's why I thought Kessig Cagebreakers would be good, but I won't know until I get to test it. I liked Beacon of Creation because it goes back into the library and its a static cost. Does it not count duals as forests? if so, then best case would be 9, which still isn't enough. I will take it out for White Sun's Zenith. But, depending on how many Saprolings I can make, I might rather try and combo Beacon with Life and Limb. What do you think?

I was looking through my collections and found Goblin Assault and would love your thoughts on this.

I appreciate the discussion, you are really helping me think in different directions!

ImtheRealBear Thank you for commenting. I havent put a description to the deck because i was more concerned on getting advise on the landbase than on the general strategy of the deck.

I never have a problem with the amount of lands thanks to the tutoring of Sakura-Tribe Elder and the digging of Satyr Wayfinder. If I still run short on lands, i can always retrieve some with an Eternal Witness

About the fastlands: yeah, maybe i could trade them for shocklands. Although they are just 2, so most of the time they don't enter the battlefield tapped. Besides, playing a T1 Hedron Crab is usually vital to get a fat GY.

Finally, about your suggestion of adding Spider Spawning, i had considered it when I first started building this deck. But there are a few problems with it: a) Its not a creature card. b) Its flashback cost requires black mana (this deck was originally simic, but went bant for its defensive capability against GY hate. I wont add a fourth color.) c) Kessig Cagebreakers does practically the same, is a creature card, and can close a game instantly by surprise if I got some Lightning Greaves on the battlefield.

I will add a description soon. This is one of my pet decks along with

Merry Krampus

Modern Chino90


, so I would like to fine-tune it as much as possible. I actually have a $60 dollar budget version of it.

Thanks for your suggestion and upvote!

What Wizno said. I run a couple of non-werewolf humans and some wolves but it is still better for the most part to choose Werewolf when picking for cards like Caverns. If you don't run any of the Weredrazi then it would probably be best for you to say human. I don't even see it as watering down your theme.

Also, since you are already running a couple of humans, have you considered Kessig Cagebreakers

I really like this deck. I am trying to build a similar budget deck here: Necrotic Splinterfright. I appreciate a budget deck that I can actually build instead of an expensive deck that I could only dream of having. I think the main thing that is different from my deck is the Kessig Cagebreakers. Seeing your deck makes me want to finish my deck. I know it's a budget deck, but any thoughts on adding some cheap dual lands that don't enter tapped?

Yeah, you could always go with Hedron Crab for more self mill, Archaeomancer, Coiling Oracle, Ghoultree, Acidic Slime, Kessig Cagebreakers, and Wonder...stuff like that.

Also thought of a much better ramp spell for this deck, Splendid Reclamation.

Have fun brewing, Sidisi is one of my favorites!

I picked this deck up. It is ridiculously fun to play, especially in multiplayer games. I am trying to develop this deck into a commander deck The Lichlord Commeth. I have to say that the Kessig Cagebreakers and Boneyard Wurm are both really handy in longer running games. Another thing that can work is using Varolz, the Scar-Striped and Corpsejack Menace to scavenge a Ghoultree or Boneyard Wurm to make any creature much larger for throwing at opponents.
