Kessig Cagebreakers Discussion

I love equipment in my Edric decks, just add in any unblockable dork and you got something good.. Empyrial Plate, Sword of the Animist, Captain's Claws, Quietus Spike, & Sword of Feast and Famine. Also One with Nature, Stolen Identity, Spontaneous Generation, Arachnogenesis, Bear Umbra, Harvest Season, Spawnwrithe and Kessig Cagebreakers have been awesome for me. Also don't forget about shadow guys like Infiltrator il-Kor, Looter il-Kor, etc. they are also basically unblockable. I have 2 edric decks built on here you can see for more ideas:

Then, if I wanna keep going with wolf stuff, since I have lots of creatures, I can use Kessig Cagebreakers, and for more spell punishing, Witchstalker. This is 23 creatures, so I've got room for Decimator of the Provinces and Hamlet Captain (Two cards that I just like playing). That brings me to 25, Plus the gods and Eternal Witness makes 29, plus... I think I'll do Metallic Mimic. Thanks for helping with the creature base!

Edit One (04/14/2017):

  • -1x Coiling Oracle, +1x Frantic Search; Coiling Oracle felt too low impact during as stages of the game, and usually just mean "ETB: Draw a card". Frantic Search is a "free" card, and it can trigger dredge rather easily.

  • -1x Fact or Fiction, +1x Jace's Archivist; Four mana is a little much for a none-creature in this deck that does not immediately impact the board. Plus, this card leaves a large decision to the target opponent, which can screw us up. Jace's Archivist can mess with the hands of my enemies while filling ours out rather quickly, while also filling the graveyard with some of the bigger reanimator targets in the deck.

  • -1x Kessig Cagebreakers, +1x Sire of Stagnation; Kessig Cagebreakers never really did anything of value. If Sidisi was doing her job correctly, then I would not need a bunch of wolves in play. Sire of Stagnation is a powerful reanimation target, and can quickly get me to my infinites. Plus, that name is awesome.

  • -1x Golgari Charm, +1x Murderous Cut; I already have Reclamation Sage and Sultai Charm to deal with individual artifacts or enchantments. The other two modes are rarely of use to me, as I want my creatures to die, but -1/-1 will rarely accomplish much. I can cast Murderous Cut for and a few lands in my graveyard. At instant speed. Seems pretty good.

  • -1x Catacomb Sifter, +1x Putrefy; Versatility is king, and Catacomb Sifter was not very impactful during my play. Putrefy is another piece of removal, and there's no such thing as too much removal.

My favorite pump spells you aren't running for this deck are Gaea's Anthem, Captain's Claws, Quietus Spike, Empyrial Plate, Sword of the Animist, Beastmaster Ascension and Pathbreaker Ibex. You can also get a lot of millage out of Kessig Cagebreakers, usually the deck ends up with a bunch of dead 1/1 critters in the yard by the 6th or so turn. Happy gathering!

Nice deck, seems really powerful and fun. How well does it perform for you?

Have you considered Grave Pact as a second Dictate of Erebos? Also I would recommend Savra, Queen of the Golgari and Viscera Seer, as they are pretty powerful in sacrifice decks. Winding Constrictor doubles the counters you get from sacrificing creatures, which can be really useful (not good if you play against infect). Kessig Cagebreakers also has the potential to be strong in this type of deck.

A few other lands you may want to consider running at Reliquary Tower, Gruul Turf, Cinder Glade, Rootbound Crag, Timber Gorge, and Temple of Abandon. Xenagos, the Reveler may distract from the werewolf theme, but it an excellent ramp planeswalker considering the amount of creatures you currently running. Another EDH staple you may want to consider is Elixir of Immortality, as it will cycle your graveyard in to your library. However, if you want to benefit for having creatures in your graveyard, then Kessig Cagebreakers is right up your ally. Assembled Alphas is good to scare off your opponents from swinging. Hope this helps!
