Killer Bees Discussion
3 months ago
Hey MagicalHacker, saw your vid on EDHrec. Seems like you're "moving on up" perhaps even to the East side... Puns aside, I require your assistance or suggestion and appreciate all the help you've given me in the past. I'm stuck between commanders and plan on liquidating one of my decks that just isn't playing like I want to (that being Karametra). So the commanders that I'm contemplating is:
Marwyn, the Nuturer: elf tribal more or less. Marwyn can go infinite with just a few elves and things like Umbral Mantle or capable of generating large amounts of mana with cards like Seeker of Skybreak or Quirion Ranger ECT. Finishers would be green staples Craterhoof Behemoth or Worldspine Wurm . Maybe Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre for laughs. Generate a lot of mana and cast a huge Hurricane or Squall Line offset by beat downs or Wellwisher . Heck Killer Bees would be a funny way to kill someone... Tighter budget due to less trade then the next 2 commanders.
Feather, the Redeemed : cantrips for CA. But this would feel more like Colton. But she also seems like the flavor of the month atm but reminds me of my old Zada deck so I have most the caltrops already before the price hikes due to the hype.
Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle : not your typical commander. Uniquely a land but can still be modified by how creatures etb as well as landfall. Can generate infinite mana with Freed from the Real and Pemmin's Aura for shenanigans. Not doing sea creature tribal so finding good lists is a little harder to find. Doesn't interact with counters like typical Simic commanders but becomes a huge 12/12 beater when activated. Lots of cantrips that allow for being unblockable.
Any advice or reccomendations would be greatly appreciated!

What're your thoughts on cards like Killer Bees and Unyaro Bees as a late game mana sink (especially if you can achieve infinite mana)? Nothing seems more hilarious than killing someone with those. I'm just trying to think of win cons that don't involve Craterhoof Behemoth.
Also Squall Line and Hurricane seem to have some potential or at least make everyone more "manageable." Throne of the God-Pharaoh can nuke down your opponents too and can be more brutal with a soft mana lock with Ritual of Subdual/Winter Orb/Hall of Gemstone/Storage Matrix.
Vanquisher's Banner seems like it would be good here for draw and pump. Only downside is it costs 5 CMC but that is pretty easy to pull off with Seton. Quest for Renewal is Seedborn Muse's lil cousin and undoubtedly would be activated the turn it drops but might only be worth it for the Helix Pinnacle win.
Just trying to get the creative juices flowing here lol.

Quest for Renewal is the budget version of Seedborn Muse and is super easy to activate in a Seton deck. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and even Elvish Guidance are nice includes as they can go infinite with Argothian Elder using Wirewood Lodge. Elvish Guidance by itself turns a forest into a Priest of Titania.

I overlooked Omnath in the list. Khalni Hydra is great for the devotion theme. Doing something similar with mine. I'm also using some sneakiness to bring my stuff out. Fauna Shaman/Survival of the Fittest to bring creatures to hand and Elvish Piper/Quicksilver Amulet to bring them out.
I've been working on my Selvala (post it when I have time) and came up with a convoluted but fair infinite combo- Killer Bees/Unyaro Bees. Paradox Engine, and Oracle's Vault. You don't really need a big creature to get this rolling, but it helps. Bring stuff out with the vault, tap Selvala for mana and pump into the bees. Paradox untaps your nonlands and you keep going, making the bees bigger as you go. Eventually, you get to Nissa, Worldwaker to untap some lands then finishers like Craterhoof Behemoth/Walking Ballista. It's happened twice so far.

Looks like a fun deck, I especially like the art on Killer Bees haha...
Swarmyard might be some fun tech you could add.

Recently a friend and I were play EDH, His legendary is Nissa, Worldwaker. The battlefield had a Killer Bees out, he used Nissa's -7 and pulled out 30+ forests. My question, can he use these forests to pump up the killer bees and attack for 30+ or is there some kind of summoning sickness that occurs because the are also creatures? Ive scoured the google for a specific answer. Thanks for your help on this.

Oh, that'd be really fun!
Besides ramp, Green brings defense against other Flyers, with stuff like Bower Passage and all the Archers and Spiders (e.g., Thornweald Archer, Ezuri's Archers, Arachnus Spinner, and Deadly Recluse). There's also some fun Insects (e.g., Hornet Queen and Killer Bees)

Thanks much, for both the recommendations and the kudos!
Ant Queen's a great card but I'm keeping the deck to Saproling and Dragon tokens. Killer Bees looks fun too, but I'd prefer a generic mana sink (so I can use extra red too, but especially because Mana Echoes produces colorless).
I'll have to take a hard look at look at Might of the Masses though. I periodically playtest a Rith-goes-solo deck that's trades a bunch of the Dragons for more Voltron effects (plus more removal/protection). I could see the Might fitting in there nicely ...
No data for this card yet.
