Living Hive Discussion

Tluff on Incandescent Sneak Attack

This deck got coverage on mtg goldfish _

While Saffronolive's list was horribly untuned, it did lead me to reconsider a card I had not thought about since the days of twin: Through the Breach

I am currently considering abandoning the grind 'em out plan vs shadow and instead trying to combo harder. The proposed changes are all in the sideboard

-1 Offalsnout-1 Living Hive-1 Tornado Elemental+2 Through the Breach+1 Cloudthresher

Is this a reasonable plan of attack vs grixis shadow, or have I gone too far down the rabbit hole?

If you're looking to add some Ulamogs, I would suggest taking out the Living Hives. Nissa, Worldwaker is also quite good for a deck that wants a lot of lands out. Overall, cool deck!

I would advice against cards that cost three of a specific colour, unless you really need them (the chances of getting stuck with them is big) . So I would take Aetherwind Basker out, Like wise I don't think Eliminate the Competition is going to work since you'll be sacrificing creatures to the brothers. You do need more, seriously more, token generation: Ant Queen is cheap (money wise) and can take a little beating, Krenko, Mob Boss if you have him, Dragonlair Spider or Living Hive which is big and spawns.

Manawise: less Decoction Module and more things that provide mana (or lands) and that you can sacrifice Mycosynth Wellspring for instance

For inspiration please feel free to view Everything has a Sacrifice, I mean Price (warning: Blatantly self referential :) )

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!

Thank you for the suggestions, I'll see if I can get my hands on a few Eldrazi Monument. As for Living Hive I think he's too costly to put in this deck. This deck used to be Blue/Red and focused on thopters via cards like Whirler Rogue, my winning combo was the thopters and Sharding Sphinx. Living Hive reminds me of that.

Nice start, it has a really good pace starts to really get going by turn 8. My only ideas are Eldrazi Monument and Living Hive both are cheep.

Eilel thanks for the suggestions. Caustic Caterpillar and Rust Scarab will definitely find their way into the sideboard. Sadly, Bayou Dragonfly is not modern legal, and I really want to keep it mono. I have considered Living Hive, but I just don't think it does enough for 8 mana. That and it itself is not a bug. I will have to see how Deadbridge Goliath works with the deck.

Love your idea of the challenge you and your friend make. I'll be introducing this to my playgroup as well!

For your sideboard you may consider:- Bayou Dragonfly for some easy evasion. - Caustic Caterpillar as easy enchantment/artifact removal- Rust Scarab if it becomes blocked you have more removal

Beetleform Mage is a very strong card, but you'd need splash for blue.

Deadbridge Goliath is a solid body for it's mana cost and can do graveyard shenanigans in the late game.

Living Hive almost does the same as Giant Adephage but instead it makes small tokens
