Loxodon Smiter Discussion

Darkewarrior on discard sideboard

Loxodon Smiter and any card with a Madness ability will give you advantage when being forced to discard

Memphismaymagic5 I tested both mana dorks and Loxodon Smiter for long time. Mana dorks just never felt good to me for some reason; Loxodon Smiter on the other hand was an auto 4x in the deck until Knight of Autumn got released. Being uncounterable is nice but in most games it just felt like Smiter could do nothing except being chumped or killed without getting any value from it. When Knight of Autumn is bad, they are the same level of bad; in every other case Knight of Autumn is always just better.

I could run Smiter instead of Dauntless Escort but having the anti-wrath effect in the main deck severely helps against certain matchups.

Ultimately, i could definitely test Collected Company again but putting Wilt-Leaf Liege to the bottom feels very bad :/

Cool deck! Loxodon Smiter can be a real powerhouse in this deck!

I have a similar deck that uses both Liege and Coco, works fine, but needs mana dorks...

You can check it out if you want: Safari Company

In this set, Bant would typically have aggressively costing creatures like Fleecemane Lion and Loxodon Smiter. I would make the clause “dealt damage to a player” specifically, I would like to includ planeswalkers as well but that’s a lot of card space... this would make for interesting combat scenarios for both the Bant player and the opponent since they make combat slightly awkward. “Should I chump? I don’t want them to slam a __ and draw an extra card, but I don’t wanna lose my creature?”

capriom85 on Heliod in Pioneer

I will be playing new Heliod in my modern Martyr Proc deck. I already have Walking Ballista for spot removal and to shoot over my opponents’ creatures if needed. You can do the same with it in Pioneer, just with less consistency, as Martyr Proc has better tutors for both.

In Pioneer I think it can do just fine. The cards available to play a Soul Sister build are pretty bad, in comparison to the actual Soul's Attendant and Soul Warden version. I would probably run it in a GW ramp build for Pioneer. Heliod comes out on turn 2, followed by a turn 3 2/2 Walking Ballista , and a turn 4 win. The combo is open to removal at this point, so you may want to wait even later game to keep response mana open. Then you’re looking to play a game of attrition early on with value creatures like Loxodon Smiter , Fleecemane Lion , Steel Leaf Champion , etc.

I would also play the combo in any UWx control shell. Too bad Fae of Wishes is unable to grab either piece from the sideboard.

I can see the concern tbh. On the other hand, you'll actually find that scrounger recurs a lot more often that you'd think it would and its very good for that reason, especially in the horrible control matchup. I could see dropping it for a better addition to the slot, but it would have to be a REALLY good addition to beat scrounger if for no other reason than matchups and ease of castin though.. Definitely open to ideas.

I've actually been thinking about Loxodon Smiter already, but in the sb for the black matchup. If it had trample, I'd maindeck it in a heartbeat, but i dont much like it without.

So this is much more Abzan Aggro than it is midrange- which is not a bad thing. My only suggestions so far would be dropping Scrapheap Scrounger for something.... better? Idk. It’s a fine card, but it won’t recur very often and it’s no blocking clause will hurt you more often than you might imagine. I tested a version with Loxodon Smiter and it worked well, being another 4/4 for 3 with no legendary clause helps ensure a good curve.

Other than that I really like the deck.
