Life's Legacy Discussion

FunkyMountains on Yasova the Creature Thief

Sweet deck love the idea of keep or kill! Very impressed with the budget too! Jalira, Master Polymorphist seems like too much value for you to pass up and within budget I think. Primal Growth also seems like a good fit. Quest for Pure Flame although not a perfect fit double and sometimes quad dammage is always fun espescialy when your hitting your opponent with their creature who is twice as strong when on your side... seems like a dramatic betrayal. Temur Ascendancy also feels like a must have for this one! Life's Legacy or Momentous Fall also seem like good includes instead of the brainstorm or Temur Runemark .

I'm sure you can get a copy of Mimic Vat for 50 cents and it would be adding insult to injury having your opponents creature come back turn after turn to beat them up.

out of your budget but not too crazy I think Greater Good would be way better than Culling Dais .

Then harmonize, escape, return of the wildspeaker, Rishkar's Expertise are helpful. Even Soul's Majesty , Garruk, Primal Hunter , Life's Legacy , Momentous Fall are all good options. Its dependent on your commander for sure like the rest of your deck (at least momentous can be used in response to removal and life's legacy can be used prior to them getting a chance to use removal, just be wary of saccing as additional cost to cast when the blue player has mana up). Also be sure not to get 2 for 1ed.

Green really only draws through Power of creatures or # of creatures. Since you aren't going wide, these are your best bet.

If you want to protect your commander, you Heroic Intervention would be helpful but thats $. Veil of Summer , Vines of Vastwood , Blossoming Defense and MOST IMPORTANTLY Bolt Bend can all protect your commander. Bolt bend redirects removal, targetted discard draw extra turns and more. Very powerful for 1 mana. You can also consider Boots/Greaves as well as enchantments with totem armor but they can use in response to the equip or worse, 2for1 you with the enchantment.

Hmmm ... I think you could use some turn one mana dorks ( Llanowar Elves / Arbor Elf ). For instance, getting a Somberwald Sage out turn two to setup a potential turn three Shalai, Voice of Plenty / Regal Behemoth /X hydra/serpent can be backbreaking for your opponent. Or simply a turn two Managorger Hydra could go a long way. Speaking of hydras, Voracious Hydra can double as a removal spell or potentially be the biggest creature in your deck. Also, have you considered Life's Legacy or Momentous Fall as an option to refill your hand? Hope this helps.

Thank you for these suggestions Barbarian_Sun_Pope! Oddly enough I found both of those cards in my notes, but can't remember, why I didn't put them in. I think you are absolutely right, both cards would be better. You have a good point with the Warlord's Fury . Maybe I can find something more suitable, or maybe even exchange 2 Warlord's Fury and 2 Momentous Fall with 4 Life's Legacy .

So again, thank you very much!

Hellos, I like the synergies you have going on here, plus the sentiment behind the deck is really nice as well =). That being said I don't think you necessarily need Warlord's Fury considering the draw power you already have and I'm not sure first strike is really required since many of your creatures sacrifice themselves at the end of turn. Have you considered Life's Legacy as a possible cheaper alternative to Momentous Fall ? Also I think you can also replace Barishi with Thunderkin Awakener as a much better way to recycle your graveyard.

I would cut the single-use pump spells like Giant Growth in order to fit more ramp. Farseek or Nature's Lore for Stomping Ground is a powerful turn 2 play. Cultivate , Kodama's Reach , and Nissa's Pilgrimage are also very strong. I think your deck could also do with some 1cmc dorks like Birds of Paradise and Elvish Mystic .

Natural End costs too much at 3cmc. Nature's Claim is faster, and Krosan Grip is much better at 3.

I think your deck lacks spell that generate card advantage. Birthing Pod , Lifecrafter's Bestiary , Guardian Project , Sylvan Library , Shamanic Revelation , Harmonize , Return of the Wildspeaker , Momentous Fall , and Life's Legacy are all examples of what I think your deck could benefit from.

Profet93 on GRUUL SMASH || Xenagos EDH

  1. Yavimaya Hollow - Protection
  2. Voracious Hydra - Beater + Removal
  3. Life's Legacy - Draw
  4. Momentous Fall - Draw in response to removal
  5. Lifeblood Hydra - Beater + lifegain + draw
  6. Harmonize - Draw
  7. The Great Henge - Draw + lifegain + buff
  8. Berserk - Very powerful, even moreso with selvala
  9. Bolt Bend - My new favorite card for Xenagos. You cast draw spell targetting beater, they try to remove it, you cast this for and redirect it to them. Other 2 uses are countering counterspells and redirecting some extra turn spells.

Mhm....Omnomnomnath. The perfect deck to comment on given how hungry I am today.

Yavimaya Hollow - Protection

Castle Garenbrig - Ramp

Blighted Woodland - Ramp

Reliquary Tower - No discard

Gaea's Cradle - Ramp that synergizes with Rude Awakening . Make all your lands dudes, untap em, use cradle to float mana.

Life's Legacy - Very easy to cast, just be wary of the blue player

Momentous Fall - Better version of above, use in response to removal.

Return of the Wildspeaker - Use in response to removal

Garruk, Primal Hunter - His - is a Soul's Majesty (which you can also add if you like). I like to usually make a token, then if I have no other creatures next turn, just draw 3 from the token. Very useful.

Rishkar's Expertise - Very powerful, draw a lot of cards, then cast rude awakening for free.

There can be other suggestions but improving the land base and adding more card draw will make the deck much better without compromise. I have ideas for cuts if you like
