Loxodon Smiter

Creature — Elephant Soldier

Loxodon Smiter can't be countered. If a spell or ability an opponent controls causes you to discard Loxodon Smiter, put it onto the battlefield instead of putting it into your graveyard.

Loxodon Smiter Discussion

Duerten on Selesnya Defence

While I usually play with faster cost-effective setups I did tested a lot with something like this list, let me give you my impressions.

First, if you can find more copies of these cards you should run 4 of Qasali Pridemage , Loxodon Smiter , Wilt-Leaf Liege , Fleecemane Lion . These are the core cards that win the game, should max them out.

Second, you definietly want more creatures total. About 28-30 is nice and consistent, any fewer and you won't be able to keep a decent fighting force on the field. Add cheap common creatures like Llanowar Elves and 2 more Steward of Valeron to gain mana faster. Maybe a few heavy hitters like 1 more Oversoul of Dusk or Wolfir Silverheart . Or if you can find some of these Kitchen Finks Knight of Autumn Wilt-Leaf Cavaliers .

Third, too many basic lands. With that many same color sources it will be harder to cast the multicolored spells. Many games live or die by the stability of the mana base. The obvious but very pricey choice is Windswept Heath wich is nice with Knight of the Reliquary , or Temple Garden . Cheaper alternatives are Sunpetal Grove and Canopy Vista , cheapest is Selesnya Guildgate . Whatever you pick, you need more color stability.

2 more Dromoka's Command would be nice too, filling the removal/defense slot. Shapers' Sanctuary will often be a dead card if you opponent doesn't target your creatures, you could replace it with 2 more Shield of the Oversoul .

You don't need to go big money to make a nice Selesnya Midrange get competitive.

@SynergyBuild, I think your standards are a bit too high. Unless you're advocating for Loxodon Smiter any card can succumb to Thoughtseize and counter magic, and Loxodon Smiter to me seems much more fragile in comparison. That said Mogis can still bypass counter magic if you're running Cavern of Souls and it can bypass Thoughtseize if you're running Kolaghan's Command . 4 Cavern might be too much, but I don't think having 1 will ruin the manabase either. Heck it can be a sideboard card for when you're up against a creature-lite blue deck if you need variance.

I like this, Hero of Precinct One synergises well with Voice of Resurgence , Eldritch Evolution is just nasty.

But the mana base seems really unstable. I don't know what cards you have access to, but Pillar of the Paruns and Ancient Ziggurat can help casting multicolored stuff more consistently.

I would run Loxodon Smiter over Qasali Ambusher . Could run one more Eldritch Evolution , i guess the one Birds of Paradise is a placeholder for that?

Ohh and a very old but deadly card Mercy Killing !

That card is paired in legacy with cards like Nullhide Ferox and Loxodon Smiter .

EDIT- Have adjusted the sideboard a bit against burn, as well as cutting a Loxodon Smiter, a Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Tarmagoyf, and the main Qasali Pridemage in favor of 2 Kird Ape, another Experiment One and another Bloodbraid Elf. I'm thinking I could lose a single Path to Exile for a Lightning Helix and if need be, 3 cmc for 3 damage and 3 life gained might not be so bad... Gonna give it a run at fnm and then I'll be attempting my first SCG Open this weekend, so more updates to come I'm sure.

You may want to look at Death & Taxes build. You should adjust the numbers a bit, such as:

Even though you are missing Eldrazi Displacer in the current build, the deck is still considered Death & Taxes due to the number of blink and flicker effects. If you want to go a more Hatebears route, don't add Displacer and consider replacing Splicer and/or Flickerwisp with Loxodon Smiter, Wilt-Leaf Liege, and other heavy hitters. Hatebears doesn't utilize the blinking and flickering effects, but still relies heavily on the taxing and land destruction path.

I've found that Shalai, Voice of Plenty has become increasingly useful from the sideboard. If the game goes long, GW will be able to activate her ability, otherwise she's another 3/4 flyer that gives you and your stuff Hexproof.

Hi! I dig this build. I play a lot of taxes (predominately mono W and BW) and I'd like to offer some advice:

-Noble Hierarch is much better than birds in this deck. The Exalted does a lot more than you'd think.

-If you're running the Eldrazi Displacer package, you're most likely going to want to run 4, as well as 4 Eldrazi Temple.

-I dont think you Have enough multicolored creatures to make Wilt-Leaf Liege worth it. If you go the Eldrazi Displacer/Eldrazi Temple route, I'd slot in some Thought-Knot Seers. Otherwise I'd consider some amount of Loxodon Smiter and/or Restoration Angel. Depends on your meta.

-Since you're playing mana dorks, it's also worth considering slotting out Aether Vial for Collected Company. If you do this, of course, I'd also drop most/if not all of the Flickerwisps. You can also try running some combination of Collected Company and Aether Vial. Spirits runs 4 and 3. again, depends on your meta and what you want to be doing each game.

-Voice of Resurgence is a good card. Might be worth making room for a couple copies. Just a consideration.

Hope that helps! Deck's awesome.
