Please link all of the cards in your question using double brackets.

Bishop of Binding

Longtusk Cub

It depends entirely on how the ability is worded. Bishop of Binding and Phyrexian Ingester both reference "the exiled card's power". This type of ability uses the values on the creature card as it exists in exile. This would be as a 2/2. Death's Presence and Fling reference the "creature's" power (notice the lack of the word card), these effects would use a value of 6 in your example.

You could consider playing an energy sub-theme for Longtusk Cub adding Aether Hub and Servant of the Conduit, you will get mana fixing and probably a turn 4 Regal Caracal. Also, so many 2-of, scpecially non-legendary creatures, indicate lack of focus on your brew, so i'd advice you to decide wether you want 4x Adorned Pouncer or maybe even 4x Ajani's Pridemate since there is also a lifelink sub-theme. Finally, looks like you will have a hard time against flyers or big creatures so consider adding some Seal Away Check out my Post-Rotation Sai

Pabs4444 on Pump Destroy

Hey! My first suggestion would be to have more creatures. I know the goal of the deck is to use a ton of pump spells to get the Pummeler kill, but there are going to be many times in which you have a lot of pump spells in hand without having a creature in play. Longtusk Cub seems good as you have Attune in this deck along with some of the other mid-range energy cards. Uncaged Fury is a fun card, lol. Also, perhaps a few more pump spells that offer trample? Trample is just amazing to get through those pesky blockers. Good luck with the deck!

Stazeeee, I wanted to follow-up to your previous posts. I have been play-testing my RG version of this deck on MTG Arena, and I have been getting destroyed by the amount of main-deck removal currently available and played in the meta. The mid-range characteristics of the Simic version have provided much better results. Hadana's Climb  Flip provides an excellent secondary win condition that pairs perfectly with the other threats in the deck thanks to their affinity for +1/+1 counters: Bristling Hydra, Longtusk Cub, and Untamed Kavu.

Core 2019: Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants! Can't think of a better addition to the deck :D

Also, I've always been partial to Longtusk Cub, especially if you're running Aether Hub's, which I might suggest.

Sweet Deck!

I thought it might be interesting to see how cat tribal would fare with a defensive, midrangy gameplan instead of the usual aggressive strategy running Longtusk Cub and the like.

P.S. brace yourselves. Puns incoming!

Hey, looks good nice upgrade.

Consider Merfolk Branchwalker? I think Branchwalker is a better two drop here than Longtusk Cub. I don't see enough energy producers to make Cub worth it. Energy is better spent to draw a card with Siphoner, make mana for Servant or Hub and use it with Aethersphere. Explore can help to find lands or if you reveal a nonland card Branchwalker gets a +1/+1 counter without needing energy.

Consider Jadelight Ranger it's also a powerful card with the Snake. Currently you have 16x two drop creatures consider cutting one of these, Cub, for Jadelight? Consider 3x more Woodland Cemetery to help the manabase. Cemetery is a good investment right now.

Walking Ballista is a great card with the Snake, but I don't think investing into them now is a good idea. If you have them play them for sure, but I wouldn't buy them. Ballista rotates out of Standard in three months and five days, October 5th. Spending $60+ for three Ballista for only three more months of play is something to do only if you have extra money for cards. If you don't then I suggest investing in Dominaria staples. Ballista's value will massively drop when it rotates out of Standard. The card is oppressive in Standard, but not other formats. It won't hold the value after rotation.

Cards in Dominaria will not rotate out of Standard until October 2019, lots of time to play them and get your money's worth. Staples to consider investing into for your deck are Woodland Cemetery, Vraska's Contempt, Jadelight Ranger, Merfolk Branchwalker, Cast Down, Vraska, Relic Seeker and Karn, Scion of Urza. The Check lands are the best bet to invest into right now because they are all pretty cheap with Cemetery only $4.

The Check lands should go into every Standard deck you create after post rotation, they're great lands. Guilds of Ravnica is the Fall October Standard Magic set, it's possible the Shock lands, Overgrown Tomb, get reprinted making Check lands even better, more in demand, thus more expensive for manabases.

Good luck with your deck.

multimedia Thank you so much for your suggestions! I'll definitely include Thrashing Brontodon and Ravenous Chupacabra in my sideboard/deck. Ravenous Chupacabra really is better than Walk the Plank as my deck focuses on creatures. Nevertheless, I really like having Longtusk Cub in combination with Winding Constrictor. This can easily get out of hand quickly.. :D But I'll consider including Adventurous Impulse somehow into the deck as well.Thanks again for your suggestions! :)
