Lurking Predators Discussion

Midwest on Ghalta Dredge

Oath of Druids helps fill the graveyard. Also, the card has a CMC of 2. You'll notice that the deck plays almost no ramp despite being mono-green, that's on purpose. The deck is designed to focus on low casting cost spells. 64.5% of the cards in the deck cost 3 or less mana. 75.8% cost 4 or less.

Lurking Predators CMC is the biggest reason I'm not looking to play it in this build.

Hey man awesome choice for Ghalta as his first deck! How old is he?

One card that I personally love is Lurking Predators he can go from no board to full board after a board wipe and for free too!

Awesome man! glad I could help out. Would you consider throwing Lurking Predators in at all? I would think maybe for Oath of Druids since Oath is more of a group hug thing, unless thats your goal in which case it's a great card.

You dont need 62 creatures. I think if you had Wild Pair Lurking Predators, Sunbird's Invocation and Akroma's Memorial in the deck it would be really much better additionally I dont see any good colorless creatures. Platinum Angel, Platinum Emperion, and Soul of New Phyrexia also with the soul of new phyrexia and you surge onto your whole deck you'll have enough lands to pay for the soul of new phyrexia all day long

Dragon-Marti on The Ur Dragon Commander

Hi, as a fellow dragon lover I would like to offer some advice. You might want to add Phyrexian Arena and Rishkar's Expertise. Both cards are great and I would even replace Rhystic Study. At some point, poeple start paying one and you don't really get to refill as much as you'd like.

I'd also sugest working on the mana base of the deck. I am not sure what your resources are, but you could try basic lands with Check lands, because tapped lands are death to 5-color decks. This could open up to adding basic land ramp, which is not really terrible if you happen to have all the good cards for ramping like that. Eternal Dragon has been absolutely stellar for me, although I do run 10 shocks and 10 checks and a couple of Fetches. I ended up cutting control and removal cards in favor of just playing dragons and drawing cards and has worked out pretty nicely for me. I removed all walkers from the deck, because they didn't get the discounts from Ur and were awkward to defend. How's Taigam working out for you? He doesn't seem to have a lot to work with. I'd swap him for a dragon or some removal.

Lurking Predators is a card I am currently playtesting and it has a lot of potential the more creatures you have.O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami is a card I have a very strong love-hate relationship. Everythime I want to include it, I end up cutting it out of the deck because it feels...weird. Zirilan of the Claw is a Commander on his own and is too mana intensive and slow for a deck like this so I wouldn't reccomend it. Dragonstorm is unfortunately almost unplayable here because the card reaaaly likes to play with other spells to charge up the Storm. It's an expensive tutor and I've so far skipped it. You could try Sarkhan's Triumph instead. Knollspine Dragon not particularly interesting and not a great draw engine, I'd skip it. Stormbreath Dragon I'd include depending on my playgroup. So far, I haven't felt the need but it's almost making the cut.Jugan, the Rising Star is bad, just bad.

If you could, I would suggest Dragonlord Silumgar,Dragonlord Atarka and last but not least Dragonlord Kolaghan because her Haste is amazing to have.

Cheers to you friend and may the wind guide you over your enemies!

thewyzman on Mayael EDH Primer

Hobo, I feel like I remember you talking about the quintessential Mayael strat of cheating dudes out with cards like the ever-typical Elvish Piper and Quicksilver Amulet? Maybe i'm confused (I've read a LOT of Mayael primers in my days). Personally, I run both because of how they simply fit in the deck's synergies. i don't run Lurking Predators, or even Defense of the Heart, at this point because they're easily removed, but i am going to be trying Hunting Grounds in the coming weeks simply because it's 2-cmc.

This subject does bring me to a question though: Is there a reliable win-con available if one were to run Defense of the Heart or Tooth and Nail entwined? What I mean is, if this were a Xenagos, God of Revels deck, I might go tutor the Kiki/Conscripts win-con, but since this is Naya and a considerably different build, is there a win-con featuring fatties? The best thing i can come up with -in my limited knowledge- is something like Ogre Battledriver+Avenger of Zendikar with T&N precombat, which isn't even a reliable win-con. I've tried tinkering around with Mayael's Aria, but for it to be a win-con you have to have something set up by your upkeep, which is a slow and vulnerable strategy.
