Lorescale Coatl Discussion
1 month ago
PS: Inspiring Call , Lifecrafter's Gift , Armorcraft Judge , Rishkar, Peema Renegade , Song of Freyalise . I think going wide and getting out of board-clear range (ie: 3-5 toughness) is your best bet, rather than going big on one creature and getting it picked off. So some token generators might also be handy.

Good to see you here, hkhssweiss and thank you for the ideas. You're definitely onto something in most, if not all, cases. I still have trouble considering taking some of them out, but below is my responses and I'd be grateful to hear what you have to say!
I can definitely see Lorescale Coatl as being one of the top removals. He's great cause he get's big in here, fast, and having another option for that as a win-con is helpful. 3 out of the 6 games I've run this so far (heavy on cards) I've pulled off one of my psychological end-games with one opponent surviving and threw Traveler's Cloak on a Mr.Bigs for the final blow. However, I also have Toothy, Skulker, Psychosis Crawler and Tishana herself, so I probably won't need Lorescale. Moving to maybe.
Saying that, Bioshift was in case I (likely_ get 1-2 of the 3 counter generators out and either be able to shift them all onto Toothy for a bounce, Skulker before it's removed, or onto something else for a final surprise blow. However, if I'm taking out Lorescale Coatl , Bioshift loses much of that value. Moving to maybe.
Vorel of the Hull Clade on the other hand does any kind of counters rather than just +1/+1, which is super potent with either of the Myojins. So much so that he becomes a power-node in the network.
Keeping him in means Seahunter also stays as power-node; while I only have 4 merfolk in here, they each play a strong role with a different win-con setup depending on what's happening in the game. One draws me a bunch of cards from having none, one windfalls my hand to the same size for mass card-draw triggers, one flickers Tishana (or other ETB creatures), and the other doubles the counters on the Myojins or Mr.Bigs creatures. To tutor one of these out at any time, directly on to the battlefield for free becomes game winning in many cases. He, like Mirror Image , is one of those creatures that doesn't have great face value, but his place in the network makes him worthy of a spot.
Simic Guildmage is a tough one. I'm not entirely convinced on taking Traveler's Cloak out because of the power I've seen it have in many games. Also the other auras are part of infinite combos, but also helpful to get out on non-combo creatures early on, to speed up my board state. I need a way to shift the aura's when one of the other combo pieces hits the ground. It's also great interactivity with the Voltron style some decks in my meta play, and the protection people put on their commanders. I'll keep an eye on him though as I play test this. I'd say he's definitely an option to move to the maybe board.
Renewing Touch was in mind as something to restock my deck in a grindy game, to keep me from milling myself and to get all the great utility creatures back. I haven't gotten to a grindy game yet with this, so I think this will make its way to sideboard for now for sure. Same with Boundless Realms , though I do believe it has big power to not just ramp huge, then thin my draws to mainly creatures which I can then play without a problem because of all the mana available. Keep in mind I'm in a slower meta... however, I do also see it for how it lacks value in the more linear, focused gameplay where I'm just trying to get to the win-con. Sideboarding it.
Ovinize - I'm worried about lack of removal in this deck and there's players in my meta who us stuff like angels that give all their creatures indestructible or hexproof. This guy seems great for dealing with those things, especially with the help of politicking. On that note, Winged Coatl is also great as, once players in my meta know he's in my deck they talk themselves out of attacking me if I have a few mana up. Or not attacking if he's on the board. In the end, with both of these, I'm worried about not having answers, both to power creatures in others decks, and monsters attacking me when I have a board full of little creatures. I'll try pulling these out and give it a bunch of plays to see what happens, but it's tough.
Great call on Deadeye Navigator ! I've been wanting an excuse to pick one of these up and, while I'm worried about his place on the curve, I see his great value and think this deck could handle it in many cases. It's powerful as a repeatable flicker, for sure.
Also, when I was reviewing your Tuvasa of the Eternal Aeon Primer, I noticed Pemmin's Aura which I think could replace Freed from the Real here. It has the same untap ability, but also can make the creature flying which gives it double duty as more evasion for one of the Mr.Bigs. What do you think?

Yo what's up goldlion!
Here would be the ten cards I recommend cutting!
- Traveler's Cloak
- Boundless Realms
- Renewing Touch
- Winged Coatl
- Lorescale Coatl
- Simic Guildmage
- Vorel of the Hull Clade
All the cards listed above doesn't go with tthe theme in the deck or too little of a current synergy that you can go remove all the +1/+1 side theme going on.
Hope that helps buddy!
I would also abuse more ETB effects since you are going with the mill draw/pain route. You can use Deadeye Navigator to pair with Tishana to draw your whole deck. It isn't infinite if you blink her several times :P

Hello again Flooremoji!
Painter's Servant + Sphinx's Tutelage seems like a cool combo. Might need to build a dedicated deck for that one with Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank to boot.
Chasm Skulker has always been a pet card of mine since M15. Tarmogoyf would certainly fit the bill. I could see cutting Birds of Paradise and Lorescale Coatl or a playset of Goyfs .

Life's Legacy is decent card draw if you don't mind loosing one of your dudes.
Avatar of the Resolute is a nice body that gets bigger from other creatures.
Managorger Hydra is a bomb if it gets some protection.
Deepglow Skate can double your fields worth of counters, this even works with planeswalkers. kinda spendy money wise though.
for protection: Heroic Intervention

I run a casual snake deck and I get most of my mileage from Sosuke's Summons and using cheap snakes to bring it back.
Snake Basket can be a nice way to come back from mass removal.
Hope that helps, good luck with the snakes!
