Lead-Belly Chimera Discussion

DaWubber on Wait, what type of counter?! (IKORIA UPDATES)

1 month ago

For some truly wacky counters, check out the 4-card chimera cycle from Visions: Brass-Talon Chimera, Iron-Heart Chimera, Lead-Belly Chimera, and Tin-Wing Chimera. +2/+2 counters, and probably one of the oldest, if not the oldest, set of cards that permanently grant keyword abilities to other creatures.

The strangest thing I have in my Volrath deck is the 4-card Chimera cycle from Visions, like Lead-Belly Chimera . They're most of the very few cards that give out +2/+2 counters, and permanently give Volrath keyword abilities like trample as he switches between being other creatures.

There's also the flagbearers: Coalition Flag Coalition Honor Guard Standard Bearer But they don't really have synergy with each other. You might be able to pull some shenanigans if you give a flagbearer hexproof or protection with a changeling out though.

Thelon of Havenwood, Fungal Bloom, Sporesower Thallid, Savage Thallid and Pallid Mycoderm are all listed as saprolings. I don't know if you merged fungus and saproling intentionally, but if you did it might make sense to change saproling tech to saproling/fungus tech.

There are some hilarious cards out there if you want some jankiness.
Archery Training for some pro sniping.
Armageddon Clock if you just wanna watch the world burn.
Armor Thrull because +1/+2 is better than +1/+1.
Azor's Elocutors...win the game? ok.
Clockwork Avian or any other clockwork dudes are funny.
Corrosion to kill all the pesky artifacts.
Djinn of Wishes is lulzy if you want more than just 3 wishes. Yes, you can wish for more wishes now.
Endless Scream because errata.
Essence Flare for a slow death.
Fylgja idk this name is just worth it.
Greater Werewolf and other oldschool werewolves have hilarious effects.
Lead-Belly Chimera and other chimera like +2/+2 counters.

There are some other goofy ways to use proliferate that are actually pretty decent.

Like getting an extra level on the level-up creatures.
Or pumping your slimes faster with Gutter Grime.
Or just ramping like a troll with Hickory Woodlot, Iceberg, or City of Shadows.

All in good fun.
