Liege of the Tangle

Creature — Elemental


Whenever Liege of the Tangle deals combat damage to a player, you may choose any number of target lands you control and put an awakening counter on each of them. Each of those lands is an 8/8 green Elemental creature for as long as it has an awakening counter on it. They're still lands.

Liege of the Tangle Discussion

frwtr1968: I've seen Liege of the Tangle around in a lot of Omnath decks, I'll see what I could replace for it. What would you suggest I get rid of/sideboard?

Liege of the Tangle is my first thought, has a strong synergy with Omnath :)

Thanks for the suggestions, Gabiane, however, I think you really missed the mark. Protean Hulk is included not to tutor for Eldrazi, but for Champion of Rhonas. It's not a great idea, but a Champ and two Arbor Elfs seems not bad. There's only 1x of the Hulk, because it isn't a great tutor and I only own 1. So dropping that 1x Hulk for a set of Elvish Piper or even 1xPiper isn't cost effective. Additionally, maybe you just missed this, but I'm already running a full set of Arbor Elf, a full set of Utopia Sprawl and 3xFertile Ground, so your suggestion of Elvish Mystic makes it seem like you didn't really take a long enough look at the deck before you commented. In my experience, 21 lands is ample. The only time I'd ever consider running more than 21 would be if I was running some sort of man-land type setup or Liege of the Tangle or something along those lines.

I do love the deck idea!

Could Jolrael, Empress of Beasts or Liege of the Tangle, work as extra win conditions you think?

Darth_Savage: After looking at Rite of Consumption, i have decided to trade in 2x Rush of Vitality + 1x Smother for them. Nice suggestion you gave me. Thx.

As for Fatal Push, it's far too much of a price for me. In my country, that card is actually MORE expensive than the price tag here, while other cards like Liege of the Tangle and Ashling, the Extinguisher are cheaper. I really like the card, but i decided to leave it out since it's very costly.

I was on the bench in regards to Flamekin Bladewhirl, but decided to leave it out of the deck since i'm not really looking for early game aggression. Hellspark Elemental and Stigma Lasher, like Flamekin Bladewhirl, i think fits better in a more aggressive playstyle, which is not what this deck is aimed at.

Thanks for the feedback.

Hey there! This looks like a great start to an Elemental deck; I have just a few suggestions:

Hope this helped! I really like this deck, and might "borrow" it for my own uses. I've been trying to brew an Elementals deck for a while, and this looks like the most promising start I've seen!
