Lumbering Battlement or battle mutt? eh? Eh?!

Igneous Cur seems requisite, otherwise why have the hound master? Play a two drop, go get TWO MORE!!!!!

Pretty sweet Idea. I tried to build this a while back and wasn't able to successfully get the engine going. For next week I would love to see Lumbering Battlement.

Thank you VampDemigod

This deck's primary win condition is not the infinite loop with 3 Lumbering Battlement's. That is just a fun magical-christmas-land scenario that is possible in this deck.

I would say the win conditions of this deck are in order

  1. God-Eternal Oketra: Goes wide very quickly in this deck and very hard to get rid of permanently. And this single copy is surprisingly easy to find with all of the card draw and the Neoform effects.

  2. Lumbering Battlement: Even with a single copy, the potential ETB effects that can be triggered every turn (with Thassa, Deep-Dwelling) is incredible in this deck.. He can also become an incredibly big vigilant attacker on your turn. It is not uncommon for opponents to scoop after a few turns of Thassa and LB triggering 4-5 etb effects that gain life, draw cards and play extra lands.

  3. Chipping in throughout the game with flyers like Elite Guardmage and Dungeon Geists. It's not good in every game but it can go a long way in some games.

  4. Thassa, Deep-Dwelling: Aside from abusing ETB effects, Thassa can be a real threat in the late game. Getting to 5 blue devotion is tricky, but it's possible. Additionally, her tap ability is really useful in tapping down important blockers so that your small flyers (see above) can chip in for damage.

I haven't had much interest in this deck with rotation coming soon. It was fun while it lasted and it can always be played in historic.

Sorry for late reply, haven't logged in in quite awhile AbsoluteIridium

Intrepid Hero, Royal Assassin, Doomed Artisan, Mirror Entity, Magister of Worth, Mangara of Corondor, Lumbering Battlement, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, and Tortured Existence can carry their own on a budget. after those swaps i guess you would have to hone your curve and add some big cheap curve toppers or focus on middle range value.

Hope this helped!

we are currently converting this build to a Ghave, Guru of Spores sun titan shell due to alot of added support in the recent sets

Well it's easy to tell it's not your first deck ever though. You've got a few cool synergies and it looks like you know all the necessities to have a fully functioning deck. Since roon can only flicker one thing at a time and your deck is full of etb creatures I think it would be beneficial to get multiple triggers at once like Ghostway, Lumbering Battlement... (I see you have a couple other ways to flicker but I think it's probably gonna be something you want every game) You also might want to look at some more support style cards to get more value off of flickering something like Cream of the Crop, Dual Nature, Bramble Sovereign... Some other creatures you might want to consider would be God-Eternal Rhonas, Apex Altisaur, Seedborn Muse And lastly your creatures are very expensive to cast so you might want ot explore ways to cheat them out like Scroll of Fate. If you flicker the face down creature it will enter face up ;)

If you want any suggestions on what I would look at cutting feel free to let me know, I usually don't suggest any since people tend to get mad

Lumbering Battlement is a card that I would highly recommend. Drop it, noah's arc your creatures to boost its power by +2/+2 each, then let Yannik eat it and bring back the team.

Thinking about adding Agent of Treachery and Lumbering Battlement but don't know where. Suggestions?

Thank you for the suggestions criscofieldsforever! Yea, the one time I ran Selvala the deck definitely played more smoothly from the get-go.

Loxodon Smiter is a pet-card but it probably should be something that does more. I switched to Prowling Serpopard for protection from counters and this will give me a reason to finally pick one up.

Good call on Wispweaver and Sabertooth. Switched one to Woodland Bellower to find Serpopard or Wayward as needed and the other to Lumbering Battlement. I like the idea of casting him and then Day of Judgment so fingers crossed there is no exile removal in response!

Also Baru was not going to be doing as much work without Karametra always present so switched some stuff up and added Kytheon's Irregulars. Always wanted to play with them and I hope to make his tap ability into a political tool.

And Dragonlord Dromoka is a good suggestion but sadly she is too expensive for my wallet at this time.
