Aaerys on Animar hydra deck

1 week ago

I would consider Vizier of the Menagerie, Fathom Mage, Master Biomancer, Temur Ascentury and Walking Balista

It looks like a really nice consistent deck though! You have a really good CMC as well

If the main theme of the deck is +1/+1 counters, I would recommend Archangel of Thune, Shalai, Voice of Plenty, Mayael's Aria, Cradle of Vitality, Master Biomancer, and/or the original Borborygmos.

Ahh apologies - I failed to hover over the card and had mistakenly assumed it was Master Biomancer - my bad!

Is there a reason you're not just running a bunch creatures with the Biovisionary and then Mirrorweave? Feels like that might be quite a quick way to get everything won (note though that if your oppoenent also has 4 or more creatures you'll have to cast this during your turn so that your "win" on the stack resolves before theirs).

I found a link here that might help with ideas also - as far as figuring out how to either get the curve down or the ramp up: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/against-the-odds-biovisionary

So, first thoughts: it looks good! Very cohesive, good selection of reanimation, good targets to put in graveyard, etc. This is quite a bit better than my first EDH deck was, so kudos XD

With that being said, there are several places I might tune this deck, sorted into the rough categories below:

Removal/Interaction: Toxic Deluge is an amazing board wipe in EDH, almost unquestionably better than Damnation here (you can tailor it to miss your commander, too!). Beast Within is one of the best removal spells in the format, along with Nature's Claim and Assassin's Trophy: I'd try and include all three. Maybe might run a few counterspells such as Swan Song/Counterspell/Muddle the Mixture, but that's more of a taste thing: do you want your deck to be more slow and grindy and controlling, or more aggressive where it primarily uses its removal to deal with specific problems? You could also add Lightning Greaves, which is an amazing way to give protection and haste to your commander.

Other targets for reanimation: Sewer Nemesis maybe? I might actually NOT run Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger here, I'm not convinced he does enough to warrant being reanimated when you have other targets like Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur laying around. I'd also work on cutting down on SOME of these, since they're pretty much dead in your hand: do you really NEED Ghoultree as a vanilla 10/10 that's only good when exiled by your commander? Et cetera ;)

Other good methods of self-mill: The new set gave us various Surveil cards (particularly Doom Whisperer, run him, he's awesome). Beyond that, Mesmeric Orb (hey, convenient that you have one!), Underrealm Lich, Sidisi, Brood Tyrant, maybe Fraying Sanity? I'd check out the Sidisi list I texted to you, it has some good ones. I'd also use Glimpse the Unthinkable here, probably.

Other great reanimation spells: Exhume, Dance of the Dead, Dread Return, Victimize. Your deck isn't a token deck, so Whisper, Blood Liturgist isn't amazing here, but Hell's Caretaker might do the trick. Final Parting is a MUST, given that you can tutor Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur into GY and Reanimate/Animate Dead into hand.

Landbase tuning: For what it's worth, there's a strong argument for running ZERO basics here (despite increased vulnerability to Blood Moon/Back to Basics/Ruination) for the instant mill combo with Hermit Druid. But if you're gonna do that, or even if you're not, you want less lands that will enter the battlefield tapped (and/or to include Amulet of Vigor). Beyond that, Songs of the Damned is an AWESOME card in this deck, and Ramunap Excavator is silly here obviously. I'd also play the five allied fetchlands (Wooded Foothills, Polluted Delta, Windswept Heath, Flooded Strand, and Bloodstained Mire) and the three appropriate shocklands (Breeding Pool, Watery Grave, and Overgrown Tomb). In a 3-color deck, I'd remove most utility lands (excluding Rogue's Passage and Cephalid Coliseum, maybe one or two more), and primarily work on fixing your colors and having lands come in untapped. The other major lands I'd say you're missing are City of Brass, Reflecting Pool, and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. You can probably cut down to 36 lands, which can open a slot or two.

I'd say that the most natural cuts would be Fleet Swallower, Ghoultree, It That Betrays, Laboratory Maniac, Master Biomancer, Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, Taigam, Sidisi's Hand, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Chill of Foreboding, Damnation, Sultai Ascendancy, and two lands. After that point, cutting gets hard.

I hope that helps!! :)

Any deck that plays Nulltread Gargantuan gets an upvote from me!

Consider Coiling Oracle. Pairs great with Nulltread, evolves your 0 power creatures, and is a reasonable graft target. Also inexpensive! I have no idea what Fathom Mage or Master Biomancer are worth right now, but if they're in your budget you should definitely run them. Experiment One is another great evolve creature. Strangleroot Geist and Young Wolf both have undying, which is recursion PLUS a 1/1 counter! Avatar of the Resolute and Narnam Renegade are great 1/1 counter cards. Woodland Wanderer is a personal favorite of mine in 2+ color decks. I know Hardened Scales just recently jumped in price but it's a card to look out for if you can afford it.

You should consider playing some removal or counterspells so that a well-creafted deck doesn't just roll all over you. Mana Leak and Remand are cheap, effective counterspells. Unfortunately Blue + Green is the color combination with the worst removal - your best bets are Rapid Hybridization or Beast Within.

Your lands could use a little improving too. I know that's hard on a budget, but Botanical Sanctum is still (relatively) inexpensive, so you can try that. You could also look at Hinterland Harbor, though honestly I don't remember what the price on that looks like at the moment. At absolute bare minimum you could consider some Evolving Wilds so you can grab the color you want when you need it. They also trigger Revolt for Narnam Renegade, if you do wind up running that.

Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

Farycane on Ezuri, Claw of Stuff

Demarge I tried to upgrade this list with cards I already have. I don't think I want to go the Elf way with this Deck, because I have an Ezuri, Renegade Leader Deck already.

Cards I want to take out:

Mosswort Bridge - I don't like Taplands, and I often had the problem not having the 10 power.

Terramorphic Expanse - I'm not sure, but why not Playing an Island/Forest instead

Evolving Wilds - Same here

Managorger Hydra - Really strong card on it's own, but..yeah that's it.

Temur Sabertooth - That's most likely the card that will change place with Asceticism

Master Biomancer - Can be absolutly broken in this Deck. But early he stops me from getting Experience counters

Forgotten Ancient - Same with the Hydra

I think I need more card Draw I really want to play:

Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip

Asceticism

Boreal Druid

Fyndhorn Elves

Joraga Treespeaker

Worldly Tutor (I don't have one)

Mystical Tutor

Leyline of Anticipation and/or Vedalken Orrery

Sylvan Library (As soon as I finished this Deck, I may buy one)

I also thought of going more with ETB and put in Panharmonicon but that's like building a new deck. :( And I'm missing removal I think. I'm still not sure to go the Flash Protean Hulk combo fully. Just to tutor wincons and kill everybody is something I don't want in many Decks. I have a Breya Combo deck, but Ezuri is my Favorite so that seems okay for me.

I really need suggestions what to cut. But I need an explanation WHY I should cut something. Just "cut this and this" doesn't help me.
