Lotus Cobra Discussion
3 days ago
I find Aura of Silence to be a bit too staxy for my liking. Plus double white can be an issue early game.
The biggest benefit of caterpillar is that it's a turn one fetch from Yisan. Is double an issue? I forget that your deck is a lot more white heavy than mine.
I guess for you the fetches aren't as big a deal since you're not running Lotus Cobra, Crucible of Worlds or Titania, Protector of Argoth. Though they still help with Knight of the Reliquary and even stuff like Renegade Rallier. Just a thought.

I feel like the 4-drop spot is a bit crowded right now. I would say there are a couple of solutions to it.
1) Cut some cards
Honestly, I would say cut the cryptics. You are very much a tapout deck, and I don't like their inclusion. In addition, Sarkhan doesn't seem too great.
2) Fix a ramp package
With such a niceu top end, you can likely afford to run some Lotus Cobra or Birds of Paradise. I would prefer BoP here, because of the eRamp is about the same for a 4 drop, with 5 mana not being needed.

So far I've played this in 7 competitive matches and have found Archetype of Imagination to come in clutch many times. Flying Creatures really hurt this deck and have a defensive tactic against them has played out really well along with a very easy way to get by chump blockers.
If anyone has any insights on other Win Cons / Combos to include please share them.
Any other mana dorks that should be included?

You have a lot of high end creatures which don't add a huge amount of value. Sure, Ulamog(s) are good, and sure you can cast them potentially for free but if you have an animar with >11 +1/+1 counters on it then finishing the game should be your primary focus. And while they're big beaters, they are not instant win cards. And using them for removal outside of combo is just expensive.
In the ramp department, you're lacking a lot of one and zero drop ramp cards. You want as much chance as possilbe to get Animar down turn 2, so cards like Llanowar Elves and Fyndhorn Elves can help with that. You also need to include more fetches to make Lotus Cobra worthwhile.
Asceticism is the definition of a pubstomp card. It's too slow for the strategy and not worth running. If you want protection cards, just run Glen Elendra Archmage or a counterspell. It's only relevant combo turn and Pact of Negation will do more work.
Archetype of Imagination is win more. Diluvian Primordial is in the same boat. If you're going to run one of those kind of cards, Chancellor of the Spires is the much better choice. While it has a heavier blue cost, it lets you cast the same spell multiple times (like a tutor).

What are people's opinion on Lotus Cobra in cube? Is it a reasonable ramp card with or without the full 10 fetches or do you find yourself wanting something akin to Birds of Paradise or Llanowar Elves more often than not?

Ramp is a good choice. Landfall is always a good choice.
Finishers - You will need some big stompy finishers, the coup de grace of any ramp deck. 3 Omnath, Locus of Rage - as it is so good and on theme, 3 Primeval Titan as it works great with Wolf Run, fetching it as it enters the battlefield, 2 Rubblehulk for another cheap yet massive dude that has alternative uses, 2 Clan Defiance for killing a dude or two, as well as the opponent. 26 cards to go.
Ramp - the name of the game is getting more than 1 land into play per turn. 4 Arbor Elf and 4 Utopia Sprawl combine to make an obscene amount of mana. 4 Lotus Cobra (budget with 4 Rampant Growth) and 4 Khalni Heart Expedition are on theme and great! 10 to go.
Protection - we need to survive until the later turns where we are stronger. 4 Courser of Kruphix will let s play lands more often, while also protecting our life. 4 Searing Blaze and 2 Flame Slash can get rid us of pesky dudes.
The deck runs a bit expensive, but if you skimp on cobras for now, you will be good to go in terms of cheapness.

Living Death NEVER disapointed me, it's like the best reanimator and also a very efficient boardwipe (especially against indestructible). And if you add cards like Bojuka Bog / Agent of Erebos, it could be some great ways to help you deal with the board and the graveyards of everybody to make sure YOU get the most out of it. If you're into multiplayer EDH, the Agent of Erebos is better actually.
Oh and I like the fact that you included some land recursion with the Ramunap Excavator and so on. Maybe a Lotus Cobra or Tireless Tracker could fit in your deck (The tracker could be especially powerful with your Mazirek)
