Lotus Cobra Discussion

Sweet deck! +1 from me

One infinite combo I use in my Omnath, Locus of Rage deck uses him as the main wincon with his pseudo- Lightning Bolt ability... but you can use Zendikar's Roil + Perilous Forays + any of the following: Amulet of Vigor , Earthcraft , Lotus Cobra , etc to pull all the basic land types out of the deck !

I hope you'll take the time to check out some of the decks on my profile and +1

Cheers!

About that - main problem here is that you want to have too much high CMC cards that make 'cool things' but it's better to settle for less and actually get there. Playing Dragon tribe already fills your high end of the curve so we need to focus on lower CMC interaction/ramp/draw to get to cast as many of the mentioned creatures as possible.

That's why Crucible of Fire and Sight of the Scalelords are bad but you seem to discover another way to win besides fight with big beaters - it's reanimator strategy. So I'd rather get 4/4 or 5/5 Dragon with Animate Dead for AND do something else than cast one of those enchantments and pass, hoping that it survives on board. I personally use reanimation with Dragon Tempest as a secondary strategy to kill as many people as possible with damage from dragons coming back and then smash the rest with them, since they get haste.

Abrupt Decay has that advantage of hitting NONLAND permaments... so creatures, enchantments, artifacts, planeswalkers all go down. While Vraska's Contempt is overpriced Path to Exile in black since planeswalkers can be overrun with Dragons and 2 life gain is negligible. It's not about hitting someone's Craterhoof Behemoth or in your case Hellkite Overlord it's about dealing with Sylvan Library / Phyrexian Arena , Chromatic Lantern or Yisan, the Wanderer Bard that get them there. And that's the lesson that I learned few months back and made drastic changes to my deck - Bow before Draconic King!!! | *WAR* Update. It's still a Dragon deck but has everything that early game requires so I can still compete with better tuned decks of others.

That's why for changes I'd propose:

I think that's it for now, it's mostly about getting as much during your turns for as low cost as possible. I'd also rethink these cheap mana doublers but that's me and I don't like helping others, since they can and they will gain advantage of that and beat me. Early dorks/rocks actually can feel like mana doubling and work only for you.

If you want to know more about getting better at EDH I'd recommend checking out CMDR Central and EDHRec podcasts on youtube - https://articles.edhrec.com/commander-central-ep75-settling-for-less/. Also EDHRec page has great articles posted daily, one of them is about Evolving Wilds: https://articles.edhrec.com/in-the-margins-evolving-wilds-terramorphic-expanse/

Looks good, however I'd still lower the number of dragons and add some interaction and draw:

And for now that's it from me, let me now what you think about these suggestions!

Flooremoji: Divining Top won't go infinite, since it can't put lands on top of our deck. Scroll Rack's ability to put lands on top, which Thrasios can then put into play, triggering twenty billion Lotus Cobra s to give us the mana to populate another token copy of the Rack and Venser, who puts the land back in our hand...does go infinite.

This mono green EDH deck is well out of date and I could use some help updating it to not only be legal but competitive

I feel like the base of the deck is still pretty strong and it only needs a few minor updates here and there, so any and all inputs would be greatly appreciate.

Asus, lost but seeking

Hey qwikster thanks for the kind words! Glad to know that someone took the time to read some of my ramblings; I appreciate it! :P Also awesome that it inspired a build! Link me when it's done if you decide to post it on here. ;P

I like the idea of Plasm Capture especially the flavour text that includes a quote from my second favourite commander: Vorel of the Hull Clade It's a nice addition. Its just personal preference and group/meta opponents when it comes down to deciding on specific counter spells. I might test it out one day.

Saprazzan Skerry hmm this one is new to me, thanks for pointing it out. It's a nice piece, and once again I think a little down to personal preference. You could use Saprazzan Skerry or a bounce land like Dimir Aqueduct both have their advantages and disadvantages. An advantage of Saprazzan Skerry is that it doesn't require the bouncing of another land back to your hand, but in the case of the bounce land it could be a benefit for an aditional landfall trigger for use when Exploration is in play with Lotus Cobra or even Horn of Greed or the effect of the land itself repeating the ETB triggers of Bojuka Bog or Halimar Depths .

A disadvantage of Saprazzan Skerry is that it only enters with 2 counters. That's cutting it really close as you already have to deal with Pentad Prism coming in with only 2 and making it hard to use without having Atraxa out, but if she dies early...oof it's a set back that you have to manage as we have no way of replenishing counters on it. 3 like Gemstone Mine I can understand, but 2 is asking for Atraxa to be ready and available to proliferate it after the first use. That is a little too needy for my liking for it being a land. Nice spot though.

I like City of Shadows . I don't like that you have to sac a creature for it, but nothing worth having comes easy right? The problem with that is that we don't link sacrificing our utility creatures willingly as we care not for the resurrection of a damned soul...may they Rest in Peace . :P However in response to someone targeting to kill or exile Atraxa we could activate it and send Atraxa back to the command zone. It's an idea. Its a nice spot.

I will at some point be revamping the land base to incorporate the Coffers combo Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Cabal Coffers as so many people in my group are using it. I've resisted the temptation, but I don't think I can keep up with the massive amount of mana available so easily to them without it. And when it's out early....its just too insane. We fall behind a few turns because of this.

So when you build Atraxa how about you try the Coffers combo and give me some tips on how I could revamp the land base, as it feels like a massive undertaking which could involve cutting some pieces from other areas to make space for more land and land tutors.

Actually a Voltron Control deck might be easier to build than this was...it'll probably be more straight forward and less convoluted than my build, as was trying to make the theme quite unique since Atraxa is so popular.

Thanks again for checking out my current masterpiece! Keep in touch with your build ;P

The list looks fine for the most part. I’d consider swapping Skirge Familiar for Olivia's Dragoon or if you want a non creature alternative Chain of Smog can work. I find the familiar is typically a bit too expensive and the mana he generates is typically unnecessary when we can loop petals/rituals. I’d also consider swapping Devoted Druid or Lotus Cobra for Wall of Roots due to it being able to turn infinite black into infinite green with Necromancy and Culling the Weak .

If you have access to Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre you could play Savage Summoning and/or Emergence Zone which allows you to loop ulamog at instant speed or just win at instant speed.

Also Mausoleum Secrets is a decent tutor as it can get Slaughter Pact , dakmor via Entomb , Putrid Imp , Olivia's Dragoon and, even Necropotence fairly easily.

Here’s a link to the gitrog discord they should be able to give more advice. https://discord.gg/yegyWs

I am confused by the inclusion of Skullclamp in this list. You only have six targets that I can see: Birds of Paradise , Mother of Runes , Lotus Cobra , Sakura-Tribe Elder , Eternal Witness , and Reef Worm . Of those six 3 are mana fixers, 1 is utility, and only Eternal Witness and Reef Worm are what I would consider "good" targets for Skullclamp .

Maybe this slot would be better served by a card like Curiosity , Curious Obsession , or Ophidian Eye ?
