Longshot Squad Discussion

NobleGhost117 on Honor of the Abzan

1 month ago

One glaring problem: Commander decks NEED to be 100 cards, no more and no less. If you're building for theme, take out some of the more expensive non-tarkir cards. If you don't care that much, take out some of the cards that don't synergize well. For example, you have like 3 Warrior creatures in the deck, so Herald of Dromoka doesn't really help you. There are better 2-drop creatures in white and quite possibly in Tarkir blocks.

Cards I would consider taking out: Herald of Dromoka, Seek the Horizon, Wing Storm (this one can go to sideboard for anti-flying decks), Pinion Feast (same as Wing Storm), Fleetfeather Sandals, Life's Finale (since your deck is creature focused, you don't want symmetrical board wipes), Incremental Growth, Abzan Skycaptain (only benefits when it dies, not when it enters, so it doesn't help immediately), Longshot Squad to sideboard, Krosan Reclamation.

I would also recommend taking out Fertile Thicket for a forest, and taking out 2 swamps.

Here are some suggestions to make the deck more consistent and build more on it's synergy.

LAND Terramorphic Expanse, Blossoming Sands, Canopy Vista, Temple of Plenty, Selesnya Sanctuary or any other dual land

RAMP Cultivate, Nissa's Pilgrimage, Farseek, and Rampant Growth: put land directly onto the battlefield

OFFENSEHardened Scales, Citadel Siege, Earthen Arms: add +1/+1 counters

REMOVALBanishing Light, Oblivion Ring, Faith's Fetters: removal any non-land permanent Disenchant: more removal for artifacts or enchantments End Hostilities: board wipe effect for emergencies

DRAW Inspiring Call: draws cards and protects your valuable creatures Congregation at Dawn: puts any creatures you need at the top of your library Harmonize: puts more cards into your hand Lifecrafter's Bestiary: scry and draw are great card advantage

CREATURES Ivy Lane Denizen, Sunscorch Regent, Managorger Hydra, Salt Road Quartermasters: +1/+1 counters synergy Abzan Falconer, Tuskguard Captain, Longshot Squad: give creatures with +1/+1 counters value abilities

Low impact cards:

Abzan Advantage Giving an opponent the choice is always bad

Ainok Guide 2 Mana does nothing

Shields of Velis Vel If you play more dragons then you don't have to turn everything into dragons

Dromoka Captain 3 Mana for a 1/1 that doesn't help the board

Joraga Auxiliary Bad mana sink is bad

Longshot Squad Should have enough fliers


Mana acceleration:

Sol Ring Should have put a ring on it

Talisman of Unity Painland knockoff

Selesnya Signet Getting the fix

Mind Stone Draw never hurt anyone(except black)

Hedron Archive Go bigger

Everflowing Chalice Sometimes big isn't enough

Fellwar Stone Someone should have what you need

Dromoka Monument At least it can dragon

Llanowar Elves The Classic

Fyndhorn Elves The Sequel

Elvish Mystic The Remake

Avacyn's Pilgrim The easy fix

Rishkar, Peema Renegade Everything is a mana dork

Gyre Sage Lots of mana


Possible upgrades:

Hardened Scales Add ASAP

Sunscorch Regent Value town counters

Destructor Dragon Bad Acidic Slime

Eternal Dragon Good early and late game

Jugan, the Rising Star More counters

Steel Hellkite Removal on a stick

Gavony Township Pump the team

Frontier Siege Free mana or fights

Encroaching Wastes Bad wasteland is better than no wasteland

Mosswort Bridge Building bridges

Command Tower The EDH land

Sea Gate Wreckage Comeback king

Llanowar Reborn Some value

Oran-Rief, the Vastwood Lots of value

Maybe add Winding Constrictor for extra counters? Also, some of the outlast creatures have fancy +1/+1 relevant addons- like Abzan Falconer, Ainok Bond-Kin, Abzan Battle Priest, Longshot Squad, Mer-Ek Nightblade, and Tuskguard Captain.

Ramp: Karametra's Acolyte. Yeah. also Gyre Sage can ramp pretty efficiently, as can Somberwald Sage. And she's expensive, but Selvala, Heart of the Wilds is insane. Seeker of Skybreak can get you a second activation of any of them. Land search can be accomplished with Frontier Guide, Journeyer's Kite, Sword of the Animist, or Burnished Hart. Or Nissa's Renewal, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach and the like.

Card draw: Besides Selvala, you can also get Garruk's Packleader, Soul of the Harvest, Primordial Sage & Elemental Bond.

For big creatures, I'm partial to Hydra Broodmaster. Heroes' Bane can also get out of hand quickly. For giggles, I also play Mossbridge Troll, Spearbreaker Behemoth, Paleoloth, & Archetype of Endurance. Craterhoof Behemoth is really good - and pricey.

Mass buff: Dragon Throne of Tarkir. Beastmaster Ascension. Also, possibly Fangren Firstborn. And Triumph of the Hordes if your group doesn't mind the infect.

I like Quest for Renewal / Awakening in mono-green for shenanigans on other peoples' turns. Yeva, Nature's Herald gives your creatures flash. And don't forget about fliers - you probably want Spidersilk Armor and maybe Destructor Dragon. Champion of Lambholt can get your damage through, especially if you've got something to produce tokens (nuts with Animation Module). If you have a lot of +1/+1 counters, like in a Hydra build, I've been using Longshot Squad and Tuskguard Captain to add to the fun. Bow of Nylea also has a lot of utility, and Hardened Scales is a must in a counter-heavy build.

Hope that gives you some ideas!
