mewbusi on Goblins with a side of combo

vomitpile Legion Warboss has a much more lasting effect on the board state while allowing for more defensive play if needed. This is mainly due to the mentor effect that is fairly useful if it comes in after Metallic Mimic allowing you to buff creatures that might have not received the Mimic's Effects. While it might not be as damaging as Goblin Rabblemaster I feel that it is much more reserved in its play and responds better to spot removal.

Honestly if you just remove two of the Murderous Redcaps and one of either the Stingscourger or Subterranean Scout you would be able to run both. That or you can just remove the Legion Warbosses and replace them with the Goblin Rabblemasters if you want a more aggressive deck. Honestly I updated the deck to its current state for testing of the replacement in the next few weeks.

I guess it would be a better idea to run both to test their effects so I'll update the deck today.

+1 The deck looks fun to pilot. Some suggestions

Metallic Mimic - grants all your elves +1/+1 counters.

Path of Discovery - helps you filter the top card and puts +1/+1 counters on your creatures.

Overwhelming Stampede, Garruk Wildspeaker, Craterhoof Behemoth - If you need more Overrun type effects.

Triumph of the Hordes - Swarm opponents with infected elves!

Lifecrafter's Bestiary - Free Scry every turn and card draw for just an additional .

Vedalken Orrery - I'd prefer this over Winding Canyons.

Growing Rites of Itlimoc , Gaea's Cradle - Who doesn't love more mana at their disposal.

Heroic Intervention - A staple in almost every Green deck. Protection against target removals and board wipes.

Herald’s Horn - Awesome for tribal decks. Synergizes well with "Explore" and "Scry" mechanics and Sensei's Divining Top if you decided to play it.

Temur Sabertooth - Bounces Eternal Witness and other creatures with ETB for repeated use. Can be used to save your important creatures from removal too.

Abzan Falconer, Mer-Ek Nightblade, Ainok Bond-Kin. Take out Whispering Snitch and Blood Operative. They are only good if you surveil regularly. Metallic Mimic is strong in this deck, as well as Retribution of the Ancients. Forerunner of the Legion is awesome. I'm also personally a fan of the og Sorin Markov for his instant use "I win" button of a minus. Kalastria Highborn is lovely to use, especially combined with Indulgent Aristocrat.

Hello and welcome to EDH! Edgar Markov is a great choice if your strategy is to play fast and aggressively. But you need to improve your deck a little bit. EDH is a multiplayer format so you need strong board wipes: Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Damnation. You also need something to deal with indestructible creatures: Anguished Unmaking would be a nice addition to Utter End and Swords to Plowshares. And take a look at Crackling Doom - it's a fun card too. Your creatures also need protection: Boros Charm is the first card on my mind. And yes, as soon as you play tokens Eldrazi Monument isn't a bad idea. I usually add Metallic Mimic or Adaptive Automaton to my tribal decks. They can really boost your Vampires. Underworld Connections should be replaced with Phyrexian Arena. And finally - tutors. You really need them in EDH. Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Tutor, Beseech the Queen - the choice is yours. Good luck!

DRmagic2017 -- Hey there! Thanks for all of the ideas. I think I will slot Intangible Virtue back in. Makes a lot of sense. I originally had two Elspeths in the deck until I realized my playgroup targets them down almost instantly. They show a lot of hate towards planeswalkers lol! Taking them out did let me slot in The Immortal Sun, which the few times I've been able to play it has been an all-star for me.

Metallic Mimic, Adaptive Automaton, and Obelisk of Urd are all cards I have not heard of until now. I'll definitely pick them up and at the very least sideboard them until I try a variation that will slot them in. Thanks again for the ideas!

Hi! As soon as you play tokens Intangible Virtue is a must. I would also recommend to concentrate on token generators: Elspeth, Sun's Champion,Elspeth Tirel, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Precinct Captain, Attended Knight etc. Akroma, Angel of Wrath is a nice finisher. By the way Akroma's Memorial improves your creatures too. And you need something to boost your Soldier tokens, for example: Metallic Mimic, Adaptive Automaton, Vanquisher's Banner, Obelisk of Urd. Good luck in brewing!

Silvertusk Boar

Creature - Boar

Protection from blue.

Whenever Silvertusk Boar attacks, you may discard a card at random from your hand into your graveyard. If you do, Silvertusk Boar can not be blocked this turn.

Spells and spears seem to bounce right off it's hide.

4/2


Hope I did the challenge justice. I personally think this is a pretty cool Boar. I'd run it, especially in Madness decks. Probably just 2x because of the cost, but still. Free discard outlet and 4 damage? Nice.

I'm super happy because I got a Bundle of Guilds and pulled a Sacred Foundry, Vraska, Golgari Queen, Chamber Sentry, 2x Venerated Loxodon, 2x Ritual of Soot (Got a Golgari toolkit thingy, too), Runaway Steam-Kin, Izoni, Thousand-Eyed, Light of the Legion, Dimir Guildgate, * Emmara, Soul of the Accord. (Card's are "meh" cost-wise but I love to play with under-impressive cards and get them to work, so I'm happy.)

So I kinda want to tinker around a bit and see if I can work up some Abzan jank. Haven't tried that for a while. I'm also super stoked that we got 2x new Gorgon creatures: Arisen Gorgon in 2019 and Pitiless Gorgon in Guilds. Between those, Assassin's Trophy and Fatal Push I think I can finally build my long-awaited Modern Gorgon Tribal!! :D That's been a deck on my radar for years now but it's always had way too high of a CMC to pull off. I think I can finally nail it down. And with Vraska, Golgari Queen having a super low casting cost, I can run it with her. Tons and tons of mass removal with a decent slew of cheaper Gorgons buffed by Metallic Mimic & Adaptive Automaton & maybe 1 or 2 Creakwood Liege with probably 1x Pharika, God of Affliction for duds in my Graveyard. Idk just yet.

GORGON TRIBAL BABY!!

  • "That's great and all TypicalTimmy, but what's your F-ing challenge?!?"

Let's go back to Tarkir (My most beloved Plane!) and go Abzan (Since those colors are on my mind). I'd like to see a functional Abzan Gorgon Hydra! Yup! What a design! Hehehe have fun!
