Kindred Discovery Discussion

Urza's Incubator is a must-have for my dragon deck. it speeds things up so much, if it doesn't get hated off the board.

Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund is just a beast. his price has gone nuts, but he can win games.

Homeward Path is also worth a consideration, as losing your dragons sucks.

Bower Passage wins games. People never see it coming, and even if they do they never take it seriously until they die.

Kindred Discovery is power.

Warstorm Surge is gross once it gets out and you have fuel for it.

someone else mentioned Sarkhan Unbroken but there is also Sarkhan the Mad who does work. and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon is just a beast AND provides fun flavor to a dragon deck.

Thanks! Aggro and Control are definitely things that you don't see together too often.

Noetic Scales could be good against decks that dump their hands, and like you said, my walls would be safe. Stoic Angel and Derevi might be good for some more control, I'll have to think about them.

Aluren would be good, my walls have low cmc and come in powerful. I also wouldn't have to worry about completely running out of resources because of Arcades. Vizier of the Menagerie could help, I'll think about it.

I'm not really sure about Door of Destinies, Kindred Discovery, and Descendants' Path. With door I'm worried about boosting so much that I still die to my board wipes, I feel like I have enough card draw without Kindred Discovery, I also worry about burying spells I might need with Descendants' Path.

Archangel of Strife is a good idea, with "peace" mode my walls essentially get +3/+3. Angelic Skirmisher is good too; I can enable vigilance if I don't have it, or give my walls some other advantages.

Thanks for the suggestions! If you have any idea what cuts I could make to include from my maybe board then go ahead and suggest them.

Your deck looks pretty good for aggro-control.

Noetic Scales should be really strong since your creatures won't get bounced due to their low power and your card draw, while you totally disrupt opponents. Stoic Angel and Derevi, Empyrial Tactician can help you pursue a stax strategy.

Aluren is really powerful since most of your walls have low CMC, whereas you aren't worried about low CMC creatures your opponents might have.

Vizier of the Menagerie could help you cycle through your deck really fast.

Some tribal cards like Door of Destinies, Kindred Discovery, and Descendants' Path could be helpful.

Maybe Archangel of Strife and Angelic Skirmisher could be useful.

Very cool deck, very cool idea. Kindred Discovery is expensive but probably better than Phyrexian Arena in a tribal deck. I can foresee drawing a lot of cards with it in this deck.

I don't know what type u plan to choose for Kindred Discovery but it does mill you if you choose insects and have The Locust God in play. just a heads up if that wasn't known.

Bxbx Thank you for your suggestions. I haven't had the feeling that I may have too many lands on my hand, yet. But I will definitely pay more attention to this issue during my next games! I'm very torn because of Wall of Kelp. Like plasmor99 said. it isn't a bad card but it never brought me any value ehen I tested it. I'll probably give it some more chances.

Darkshadow327 Thank you for your suggestions. That's why I have Masako the Humorless in the Deck. She gives great value for her cmc and also has flash. I've removed Oathsworn Giant from the list due to his high cmc but he will probably make a return some day. Also maye one of the enchantments you suggested. Dazzling Ramparts is also not in here because of it's high cmc, but I'll add it to suggestions. Bant Charm is a great card as you mentioned it and I would also advise it to everybody, but we agreed to not use cards like this who put Commander on the bottom of our Decks in our playgroup. I'll add it to the primer though.

manticoreknightThank you for your suggestions. I haven't been in the situation where I couldn't have countered a critical boardwipe. But I will keep your cards in mind!

goblinguiderevealplsThank you for your suggestions. There aren't many flying creatures in my playgroup, that's why I didn't add Spidersilk Armor and rely only on the defenders with flying. I don't use normal "tribal" cards like Urza's Incubator, Kindred Discovery or Herald’s Horn because only around half the creatures with defender are Walls. I wouldn't get that much out of the cards, being mostly a semi-dead card. As you are darwing a lot of cards and due to the low mana costs of defenders and the other cards in general, I renounced of the mana artifacts since I never had a lot of trouble. But I'll add Sylvan Caryatid to the primer under the "Fast Mana Base" tab, since I overlooked her and it's a great suggestion.

rockleemyhero, sorry for the late reply! Thank you so much for the feedback!

As Foretold is absolute MONEY. Especially if I can get it out T1-2?! Unbelievable, however- huge source of hate. People know how good it is, and go for it. Sorcerous Spyglass has been great for me too, since someone in my playgroup runs Chain-Veil Teferi lol

Here are some of the cards you suggested being considered at this time; Smoke, Ponder & Preordain, Fellwar Stone as a replacement for Thought Vessel, Kindred Discovery -- this one is particularly interesting and I'm shocked I overlooked it! (Probably on mana cost alone I erroneously vetoed it)

It's funny you mention Copy Artifact... that card has to be the most expensive card I never get to use lol You'd think in cEDH that there's always some artifact for grabs, but I swear I've never played that card for value... Don't think I'll be adding it back in, sorry.

Check back in to see which updates make the list! Feel free to copy, share and use the list! Thanks so much!

maybe Spidersilk Armor? reach is strong

Urza's Incubator and Kindred Discovery naming walls might be good,too!
