Lotus Cobra Discussion

Baryshnikov on Help me improve this Mono-G ...

1 day ago

So, my friend is looking to get into MtG, and she asked me to help her build a deck. Problem being, I don't know how to deck build. Nonetheless, I accepted, and she gave me these requirements/guidelines:

-$50-90

-Wants to play Garruk, Primal Hunter

-Modern-legal, but geared towards casual play

-Wants to stay Mono-Green

So, with this in mind, I drafted up this list you see before you. It is far from optimal, though, namely because there's a lot of ramp and not a lot o payoff, and some cards seem not to serve a lot of purpose (i.e. Lotus Cobra or Avenger of Zendikar). So, this is where I ask you, the fine folks at TappedOut, for help. Any and all suggestions are appreciated!

You have an average CMC of 3ish so Trinisphere would be great. You have a Deathrite Shaman but no fetch lands? You should add a few more 1 mana dork's, such as Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves and Birds of Paradise. If you get some fetch lands Lotus Cobra is very cheap right now. If you want to slow every one down Contamination and smokestacks are pretty good in Meren. From there add a couple reanimation targets. I would get a Protean Hulk and look up some of those combos and then also get a Sheoldred, Whispering One

Podkomorka, I have won in the following fashion in multiplayer:

Turn 1 - Forest, Exploration, land, Amulet of Vigor.

Turn 2 - Lotus Cobra, fetch land then fetch, Crucible of Worlds, fetch from graveyard, Azusa, Lost but Seeking, fetch from graveyard two more times, Phyrexian Altar.

Turn 3 - fetch land from graveyard but don't fetch, Omnath, Locus of Rage, crack fetch land, elemental, fetch from graveyard three more times, six more elementals, sac two elementals for mana, Tooth and Nail entwine for Purphoros, God of the Forge and Avenger of Zendikar, ten plant tokens.

Turn 4 - fetch from graveyard four times, eight more elementals, Scapeshift for 14 lands, or sac the current elementals for finishing damage to not overkill I guess. Ummm gg everyone!

I should have explained some of my suggestions better. Rites of Flourishing I had suggested because I thought it would be useful to get more lands out considering you were using the guildgates and all. You afterall have a lot that enter tapped. Plus I suppose unlike Rhystic Study it isnt going to be making you a target.

I suggested Enlightened Tutor because I thought maybe you would have found it useful to have another way to find Amulet of Vigor primarily.

While Rhystic Study I suggested because I had thought the card draw which generally is always a good thing would make it worth it, especially considering you want to have a lot of instant speed answers ready.

Although I will admit Cast Through Time while sounding potentially useful is costly mana wise, and you dont have much to protect it from being destroyed I now see.

I changed my mind on Lotus Cobra I just couldnt edit my post. My thoughts were that you had a lot of lands entering tapped and that it may be useful to make up for that, but then I realized its giving you mana at a time you wouldnt care for.

I had suggested Dismember because (at least for my meta I guess?) no one plays a lot of counters so that wouldnt be an issue potentially to play the card for less mana would be worth it. I will admit I was just making an inference on this as it would be good in my meta at least.

Insurrection costs too much, Rites of Flourishing don't seem that good, as I'd rather the game go slower than faster. Also it's a permanent. what would I use Enlightened Tutor for? Rhystic Study draws peoples' attention to me, which is never a good thing in this deck, and also is a permanent. Cast Through Time costs too much for a small effect. I get to kill 2 creatures instead of one? Easier to just cast another removal most of the time. Also it's a prime target for others' enchantment removal. Lotus Cobra is a creature, dies to board wipes, and produces mana in my main phase (which I don't usually need). Exploration would probably be good, but I have burgeoning in the deck already. Might swap azusa for it some day. Dismember is counterable and answerable. Sudden Death is not, and I've used it to kill sackable creatures before.

IzzetFanatic I think Lotus Cobra and the fetchlands make it faster. Its plausible to get Hellkite Tyrant out turn 4 and Mycosynth Lattice out turn 5. the new combat tricks will extend the game. but it still seems like a longshot deck
