ThallionDarkshine on Horde of lands

2 months ago

You've got a decent number of creatures in here that need a sacrifice outlet for you to truly abuse them with Horde of Notions. Many of the evoke creatures need to die to trigger their effects as well, and playing them with Horde of Notions doesn't let you evoke them. I would suggest running a couple of sacrifice outlets. Doomgape gives you some life by sacrificing your creatures, while Magmaw can sacrifice any nonland permanent to ping things. Both of these are elementals and can be recurred by Horde. Some nonelemental options I really like are: Infernal Tribute (lets you sacrifice pretty much anything to draw cards) and Greater Good (sculpts your hand and dumps reanimation targets into the graveyard). However, I'm now realizing that Infernal Tribute has a really awful mana cost, so you probably can't fit it in.

merrowMania on Horde? More Like a Mess!

The deck looks good!

My only concerns/suggestions are:

Flamekin Spitfire over Magmaw or Blazing Hellhound for better Ad Naus. Probably over Hellhound, since the Hellhound line is stopped by Swords to Plowshares.

Is Signal the Clans efficient enough? I assume it gets Druid and the Recruiters. That seems way too slow if you don't hit Druid.

Fireball over Torment of Hailfire for better Ad Naus.

Triton on [List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier

8 months ago

I decided to try my hand at making a competitive Horde of Notions deck, and I believe it could potentially be moved up a half step.

I had recently discovered the Hermit Druid combo is actually pretty good in the deck (there are a few elementals that sac themselves for damage like Magmaw and Blazing Hellhound) and then midway through building the deck, it had the same initial combo as in the Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck featured. I then based it off the shell of that deck and created a deck that I believe is a great way to use Horde of Notions.

Here's the deck, the name is kind of a working title but that doesn't matter too much:

One of the downsides of the deck is that it's a one-trick pony, so once people know what the deck does, they know how to stop the main combo.

Let me know what you all think!

landofMordor on First deck you Built

9 months ago

I built a terrible UG Metalcraft deck with Carapace Forger, Copper Carapace, Scrapdiver Serpent, and so forth...my first cards were built from a blind box with Magmaw as the only rare and 50 copies of Sky-Eel School. (After that, I built a UW Auras deck when Sphere of Safety came out.)

But I guess it did inspire a love of the Scars block for me, so I owe that humble little UG deck one.

Naksu on Locus of Rage, I like board wipes

Sorry for the triple posts, but I got into breaking down your deck more. Cards to consider:

Too slow cards to cut to make room for more acceleration:

To name a few. It's ofc all up to you, but like this you'll get stuck with stompers in hand without means to cast them against faster decks.

zombiewarfare on Omnath, Locus of Ramp

1 year ago

I would run way more ramp. All I really see are Harrow and Kodama's Reach. I would add some combination of:Search for Tomorrow

Nature's Lore

Nissa's Pilgrimage

Cultivate

Skyshroud Claim

Explosive Vegetation

Nissa's Renewal

Rampant Growth

I would run them all, and do in my Omnath build, but I think at least 4 or 5 total ramp spells are needed. Perilous Forays is great as it allows you to sac an elemental to get the bolt effect and then get a new elemental with the Omnath trigger; pure value.For card draw I have found Carnage Altar and Shamanic Revelation great. The efficiency of Skullclamp could e increased with a few sac outlets. Magmaw is an elemental and a useful sac outlet all in one.Last suggestion is Clan Defiance. I am never lacking targets and this is almost always a 3 for one.

Harashiohorn on Modern Master 2017 Spoilers/ Speculation

1 year ago

ThinkJank

No yeah for sure, though I would point out that this has been oddly done by WOTC. For the First Modern Masters set, Tarmogoyf was the first thing spoiled, long before the set even came out, even before the packaging (I believe). I find it strange that this time they opened with a bunch of cards that while not bad (hello Griselbrand), aren't the most exciting. I suppose maybe they are trying to avoid a repeat of MM2015, where they spoiled most of the best stuff at the start, and people where so caught up with the rest being "trash" that people actually bought a fake article previewing Magmaw as a "big card" in the set (it was a pretty hilarious joke actually). Well that's my two cents anyway.
