Loxodon Smiter Discussion

I appreciate the sideboard advice. That's the main thing I still need to work on. I really don't know what would be best for this type of deck.

I considered Sylvan Caryatid, I used to run it when I started building this deck because I had so many expensive spells. I'm thinking about Loxodon Smiter and Wilt-Leaf Liege in which case I may need more Mana. I'm not really in a position to pick up Noble Hierarch right now. The main issue I see there is that to add those guys I may need to get rid of the Assault Formation and Doran, the Siege Tower which makes Sylvan Caryatid less good.


"Next Level Abzan" looks pretty cool. I definitely like the token spamming. I could see that being a very fun deck. Thank you for opening my eyes to it.

I play with Wilt-Leaf Liege and Loxodon Smiter which have the same anti-discard effect. It is funny (for me) when it hits. Just depends if you want Life Gain, Anthem, or anti-counter.

The only place Ravenous Rats hurts you is against a jerk like me who plays with Loxodon Smiter and Wilt-Leaf Liege. Looks like you've got a play set of Inquisition of Kozilek. You could bump up the Duress like solarPULSAR recommends or you could spring for the extra $$$ and get the big daddy Thoughtseize.

  1. Noble Hierarch
  2. Loxodon Smiter
  3. Siege Rhino, Loxodon hits for 5, Rhino for 3 (8 total damage)
  4. Wilt-Leaf Liege, Noble for 1, Loxodon for 6, Rhino for 6 (21 total damage)

This was my old game plan. You may have seen it online as Jacob Wilson's Abzan Wilt-Leaf build. It is awesome against Burn, Midrange, Death's Shadow. But it can't get over the hump against Control and just flat dead money against Combo.

I'm buying what you're selling, but I'm looking to use the 8 spots I had dedicated to mana dorks (so I can play a turn 2 Loxodon, turn 3 Rhino) into more disruption to handle my bad match ups. I think it will, but the question is will my good match ups still be good?

You're playing aggro, not midrange or control. Discard in aggro is a term of either removing something your deck can't handle or delaying something long enough for you to deal lethal. Midrange and control use discard to disrupt until it can achieve board state, with aggro, you want board state from turn 1.

So basically, lower the amount of discard spells and up the creatures so it plays like this:

  1. Dryad Militant / etc
  2. Voice of Resurgence / Tidehollow Sculler (this is your disruption). Swing for 2 (18)
  3. Loxodon Smiter / etc. Swing for 4 (14)
  4. Wilt-Leaf Liege / etc. Swing for minimum of 13.

If cutting MB, I would probably cut 1x Wilt-Leaf Liege, 1x Loxodon Smiter 1x Siege Rhino and then MB the 3x Souls.

If you wanna go for 4, you may get a way with cutting a land since your curve is very small, and I've run aggro decks with similar curves on 21 lands in standard with much slower dual lands.

So MB Lingering Souls, SB Thrun, the Last Troll, and cut... Loxodon Smiter? Man, these are tough choices!

so i love Loxodon Smiter, i have a affinity for the card. i love playing hatebears. I swapped out for Kitchen Finks because although my meta has some control it has a lot more burn and agro. I have a better match up with finks for burn, Loxodon Smiter will see maindeck when i take it outside of FNM. I am considering moving the Finks to the sideboard for smiters, but right now i have just enjoyed finks for the lifegain and persist. it hasnt steered me in a bad direction, yet.
