Lotus Cobra Discussion

Pieguy396 on Should I sell?

5 days ago

Hello there!

I have a Goblin Guide and a Lotus Cobra lying around collecting dust in my collection, and I'm trying to get an Arid Mesa.

My first thought was to look on here to see if anybody would be willing to trade for either of them, but I haven't been able to find a user who wants either.

On CardKingdom's buylist, which gave the best offer as far as I could tell, they offer $25 store credit for both, just slightly lower than their combined market values of $28.75.

So, my question: Is this $3.75 difference small enough to warrant selling online, or should I wait and try to find somebody to trade with?

Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!

Well a cheap card which is absolutely great in your deck is Orcish Lumberjack. Also fetch lands are great, as well as the Sheltered Thicket land that cycles. You have some landfall but a moderately priced card is Lotus Cobra which gives you a lot of mana

I have a Collected Company, a Goblin Guide, a Fatal Push, 2x Monastery Mentor, 4x Lightning Bolt, a Disallow, an Exquisite Blood, a Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, a Lotus Cobra, a Sublime Archangel, and a Traverse the Ulvenwald.

I'm looking for a Sword of War and Peace, a Gilded Lotus , a Grave Pact, a Consecrated Sphinx , 4x Arid Mesa, a Scroll Rack , and 3x Snapcaster Mage. (all versions are correct)

I also have a binder that contains some of my other haves and wants. Thank you!

Flagellum on Making a Stompy-er Deck.

I will second Karametra, God of Harvests. I've had real good luck in multiplayer games with her at the helm. She's an enabler and can do funny things with Whitemane Lion and company (it can return itself) which allows you to ramp into really big stompy creatures like Worldspine Wurm and Avenger of Zendikar (with LOTS of big stompy tokens too) in no time. Landfall mechanics work great too but I wouldn't focus on them only the best like Rampaging Baloths, Lotus Cobra, and/or Emeria Angel. Hunting Grounds seems to be a forgotten card that works wonders in this style of deck too.

Novablast Wurm and Panglacial Wurm need shout-outs too as they work great in a Karametra deck. Novablast Wurm had prevented a lot of my opponents from developing their boards and should it attack Karametra won't affected. Panglacial Wurm is HILARIOUS because no one expects that you're going to drop a 9/5 trample simply due to casting Llanowar Elves- since Karametra allows you to search you're library, you'll have many chances to cast him.

I don't focus on this strategy except for as a finisher but Liege of the Tangle can help turn your easily 17+ lands into 8/8 beatsticks. For this reason as well as the shear amount of lands that can get overextended I recommend Terra Eternal or Splendid Reclamation to a lesser extent.

Anywho if you want an example or ideas here is my deck:

Karametra, Goddess of Terra

So wait your running a landfall deck, but not running any of the best landfall creatures like Lotus Cobra, Rampaging Baloths, or Avenger of Zendikar?

Also you are running scapeshift in red/green so you may as well run the combo with Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle. Though you may need to run a few more mountains. Stomping Ground, Sheltered Thicket, and if you have the budget Taiga would help there. That or you could side step the problem with Prismatic Omen.

Another sweet combo card that you may not know about is Stone-Seeder Hierophant, much like Lotus Cobra, she gives you an extra mana with each land drop, but that is not her true power. Her true power is with Thawing Claciers. You see since Thawing doesn't leave play until end of turn, you can just keep paying 1 mana over and over again to ramp you by one. This combo also goes infinite with Lotus Cobra and/or Amulet of Vigor.

Lastly I think you could slot in a Sakura-Tribe Elder or a Solemn Simulacrum somewhere.

Bumpinator on Maelstrom Wanderer: Ramp

I guess it's meta dependant. My meta has more artifact removal than anything else, so I run Bloom Tender and Lotus Cobra for 2 mana ramp and cultivate etc.

I agree with several statements that fragarach97 has touched upon. Undergrowth Champion is a phenomenal creature, as is Lotus Cobra (free mana for Moonfolk abilities, seriously, think about its inclusion despite its price). I would agree to cut out the Stalkers for cards with more synergy. Another suggestion I would give is Courser of Kruphix, which gives life in addition to land, and greatly assists in prolonging matches.

Sakura-Tribe Scout is a brilliant inclusion, but I am not a fan of Skyshroud Ranger. Instead, consider:

Moonfolk aren't necessarily bad, they just need the support from cards like those listed above. Some do pull more weight than others, however. I would lose Oboro Breezecaller if nothing else. Its ability is not worth its cost, and Floodbringer is much better for the slot (it's usually more beneficial to deprive an opponent a land than to untap one of your own for the same cost). Also, Uyo isn't as effective in this deck as it could be unless some of your own instants and sorceries are included as well. Other things to consider:

Bumpinator on Maelstrom Wanderer Takes a Walk on The Wild Side

I feel like Gilded Lotus, the signets, and the Chromatic Lantern are really not needed in the deck. If you are looking to play your general on turn 4, get a Lotus Cobra and a couple fetch lands. In a recent game I played Lotus Cobra into Oracle of Mul Daya and had a turn 4 Maelstrom. Birds of Paradise also is a great mana dork as is Shaman of Forgotten Ways, which can actually win the game for you sometimes. Also the new card Vizier of the Menagerie solves any mana fixing issues you may have. Cards like Snapcaster Mage and Jace, the Mind Sculptor are pricey but are amazing in your deck. Check out my list on my page.
