Misthollow Griffin Discussion

You want it degenerate?
Either of those creatures + Food Chain is infinite mana for creature spells, and then you can cast Zegana, exile her, re-cast her, exile her, etc., until you draw your whole library (stop short of drawing out, obviously). Cast Laboratory Maniac, and then exile/re-cast Zegana again to win.
To adequately protect this combo, I'd recommend reducing the average costs of your counter spells and protection so you can have them available to cast before setting in on this loop (because Lab Man getting destroyed/exiled with the last draw trigger on the stack is extremely bad). Recommendations are: Swan Song (it counters almost everything that messes up this combo basically), Flusterstorm, Negate, even Pact of Negation could be a good idea.
Long-Term Plans would be a great way to find Food Chain.

He, mind if I pick your mind about building a cEDH enchantress deck? one hat can compete with Tazri Food Chain, Kess Twin, Yidris Storm etc.
The Idea is a food chain esque deck in terms of how it plays out. Food Chain is replaced with Earthcraft, and Squirrel Nest is the Misthollow Griffin. Altar of the Brood speeds it all up. I can run black tutors and white tutors for the pieces, and it assembles well ~turn 4 in a dedicated deck. My current issue is that assembling it turn four kills turn five without an Impact Tremors or Altar of the Brood which don't come naturally.
The rest of the deck runs the enchantresses, fast paced hate (Authority of the Consuls, Rest in Peace, Leyline of Sanctity, Stony Silence), ramp (Carpet of Flowers, Wild Growth, Burgeoning, Exploration), and card advantage (Sylvan Library, Mystic Remora, Mirri's Guile, Argothian Enchantress), along with some removal, hatebears, and disruption.
I think the deck would be four colors, as though it is a difficult landbase to fit in enough basics for Earthcraft, it is enough. Thrasios, Triton Hero, and Tymna the Weaver seem like good commanders, but Ravos, Soultender might be better.

Jarebear97: Hey thanks for the upvote and the comment! I had Misthollow in my deck at some point, but I just found him underwhelming. I think in the right Sedris deck it could be good, perhaps something that abuses when creatures enter the battlefield triggers like Purphoros, God of the Forge, but in this deck I just cant find a justification for him.. if Ive come to Unearthing a Misthollow Griffin then Im probably already so far behind on board he wouldnt help me stabilize:/

How about Misthollow Griffin? You could keep getting him back anyway, keep sacrificing him, unearth, repeat. What do you think?

Have you thought about adding in Misthollow Griffin having a bit more redundancy isn't bad

The Food Chain combo usually goes with something like Misthollow Griffin, Eternal Scourge, or tokens because they become infinite mana combos that you then dump into your win condition. Which you could do with your Polyraptor combo into a Fireball or something but now we are in magical Christmas land.
