Lurking Chupacabra Discussion

Blossoming Defense is definitely a card worth adding to the deck. I had completely forgotten about it. I can totally make the switch for Skulduggery. I'm also considering removing Lurking Chupacabra in favour of Seekers' Squire, for more exploring

i have one of these put together and have only slightly playtested. i'll admit im not using sir snek, but a suggestion i have is for the cycle etb tapped monocolored lands. Desert of the Indomitable and Desert of the Glorified. as you build up with Panharmonicon, when you hit a double explore trigger, you can resolve the first one (this scenario is assuming you want to leave the card on top so you may eventually have it), then with the second one on the stack, cycle the land to draw the card, then resolve the second one. also, if you're not going to play any one drops, the addition of tapped lands really shouldnt affect your game too much.

any reason why you are not trying the following cards? im curious tbh, to help me with mine,:Shadowed Caravel (explore payoff), Lurking Chupacabra (explore payoff), Never (not too bad to pitch to the yard or a hard removal if needed). is this because youre shooting for a more aggressive build?

Haven't played this at FNM yet. I hear your comment on Cobbled Wings, which is fair. My thoughts were that if you get Lurking Chupacabra on the field and a double explore trigger, then there will be no blockers for Emperor's Vanguard.

I can hive him hexproof and indestructible, but maybe to also give him flying would add value to the deck. I need to play-test this a bit more

Unicornsareevil Ive been thinking about dropping Tishana's Wayfinder for Lurking Chupacabra thanks for the suggestion!

I am not too sure of your creature base (see Explore aggressively)

Lurking Chupacabra to destroy your opponent's creatures

Aim for more explore on each turn with cards already on the field

I saw Panharmonicon as a late-game win-more card. If you have the upper hand it works, but you would win without it. If you are on the back foot, it is an expensive waste of mana.

I never even considered Verdurous Gearhulk for this type of deck - I suppose it could work

Hey, just an idea but adding cards with explore form Ixalan could be helpful or potentially really good in this. Cards like Emperor's Vanguard and especially Deadeye Tracker due to his grave yard hate, can potentially be good because you either get the +1+1 counters and kind of scry or draw a land.

If you want to build more towards a little sub-theme of explore, you could add Lurking Chupacabra and Wildgrowth Walker

Possibly add Scrounging Bandar

I enjoy how Winding Constrictor works in this deck. My only problem is that the deck seems super reliant on the snake to be at it's best.

When the snake is out- the deck works. You also have good lifegain from Wildgrowth Walker. Shadowed Caravel, while it didn't do so hot in my own version of this build, will do much better here since this deck is more focused on +1/+1 counters for cheap. I also think Lurking Chupacabra is a great, fun example of what an explore payoff looks like; may we see more like that in the coming expansions.

That all being said, we need more removal here. Vraska's Contempt is , but it's super vital. We have to get rid of The Scarab God or we could see our own stuff being used against us. Ifnir Deadlands works very well in this deck too!

I also think since there are so many explore creatures in here, Commune with Dinosaurs is even less valuable paired with the fact that you have no dinos. Not saying rid the card completely, but drop it down by 2 copies or so. You may also enjoy Dire Fleet Interloper as a curve-topper if this is catering more toward an aggro build.

Best of luck to you amigo. Let's build this meta!
