Momentous Fall

As an additional cost to cast Momentous Fall, sacrifice a creature.

You draw cards equal to the sacrificed creature's power, then you gain life equal to its toughness.

Momentous Fall Discussion

More mana generation would be good; stuff like Fyndhorn Elves , Birds of Paradise , Whisperer of the Wilds , Leafkin Druid , Domri, Anarch of Bolas , and Gruul Signet . Some good ramp options would be Cultivate , Kodama's Reach Skyshroud Claim , Oracle of Mul Daya , Solemn Simulacrum . You could always use some sacrifice outlets like Greater Gargadon , Momentous Fall , and Ashnod's Altar . Some equipment I like: Lightning Greaves , Tenza, Godo's Maul , and Fireshrieker . Other good voltron stuff would be like Bear Umbra , Wolfir Silverheart , and lots of other equipment. Guttural Response and Veil of Summer are good protection, Krosan Grip is the best artifact/enchantment removal, and Berserk is super good at just deleting someone.

Where is your card draw?! With such few lands, and only 4 rocks, I find it impractical for your to get Xenagos out earlier than Turn 4. Yes, there are G-d hands with Sol ring and what not, but this deck looks like it will crumble if opponents run interaction. Idk what your meta consists of, but Garruk, Primal Hunter , Soul's Majesty , Lifeblood Hydra , Lifecrafter's Bestiary , Momentous Fall , Return of the Wildspeaker , Sylvan Library would all be good additions.

Your creature count seems low for a Xenagos deck. I would recomend...

Siege Behemoth and Carnage Tyrant for evasion, Atarka, World Render as a beater and Shaman of Forgotten Ways for ramp.

Helm of the host is Winmore 100%. Asceticism is cool, but paying for Xenagos T4, Asceticism T5 gets destroyed only for you to play a beater on T6 and have it removed sucks because you just lost a turn (tempo) to a piece of removal that usually costs less than 3. If anything, I would cut it for beaters with built in protection (like seige and carnage). The easiest way to kill a Xenagos deck is by murdering it creatures, thereby cutting all your sources of drawing and winning by beating them to death. If you want to still include protection spells in this slot, I would recommend Blossoming Defense or Heroic Intervention . While they are 1 time use, they are cheap to play so you can play a beater and hold up protection.

Questing Beast seems like a meta pick, if you have lots of walkers to deal with keep it, otherwise, seems weak.

Hydra Omnivore paints a target on your back. You can use politics to save your creature from the opponent who has removal by attacking a different opponent, but omnivore doesn't make that possible.

Worldspire wurm is 11 mana for a big beater than makes some dudes, should replace with something that comes down earlier or more impactful (Kozilek, terrastadon, etc...). I know you can cheat him in with amulet and piper but that always inst availble and even then that is weak.

I would cut every single Planeswalker you have, they are not impactful enough to justify their slots. Arlin and Samut might be good enough to keep, but the remaining definitely not. Domri is weak removal and weak card draw. Viven's flash is useless in Xenagos, and her other 2 abilities are weak as well. Xenagos reveler doesn't help much since you aren't going wide in this deck.

If you want more cuts or ideas, let me know. If your meta doesn't run interaction, then I am jealous.

@Cloud777 - Thanks for the suggestion, but I don't know what to replace it with.. The deck already has a lot of enchantments for my liking.. I'll see how I can fit it..

@masayoshishido - no problem.. I'm just trying to find a seller of Slaughter the Strong , I'm going to replace Fumigate .. I'm already considering on including Phyrexian Arena as a constant draw engine itself.. Tune in for new updates, it will definitely be included.. Greater Good on the other hand, won't be effective, since most creature i have, has less than 4 power, which will only make me draw 1.. I also had tried Momentous Fall before, but it's a bit clunky for my taste.. It relies on me having 4 mana untapped for a possibility of sacrificing a creature to draw card/s.. both Painful Truths and Sign in Blood are lesser versions of Harmonize and Read the Bones in my opinion, I may include one of them, but will depend on the cards that can be replaced.. But thanks overall for the upvote and suggestions!

why don't you run Phyrexian Arena ? it's one of the black staple cards for constant card draw

Greater Good Momentous Fall Painful Truths or Sign in Blood are also good card draws for abzan colors

also why not Slaughter the Strong ?

In Round (3) - Gideon Blackblade , Green Sun's Zenith , Serra Ascendant , Birds of Paradise , Sacred Foundry .

Out Round (3) - Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage , Ohran Frostfang , Roc Egg , Boros Garrison , Momentous Fall

Gideon for protection, lifegain, aggro creature, and removal if he gets that high; Zenith for fetch/ ramp with birds and other green creatures, serra ascendant is an EDH staple due to lifegain, aggro nature and synergies with other target list cards; birds for ramp, sacred foundry for boros because I hate bounce lands and this speeds up the deck.

Guildmage mana abilities are not as good as Trostani and are costly, Ascendant takes this spot. Momentous fall is too slow and don't see when I would play this over other cards; Frostfang is fantastic until tons of tokens are out and I am unintentionally milling myself; birds is a better roc egg, I am not running midrange but token focused so that is why it is out.

Consider adding Momentous Fall for some extra card draw while also removing their creatures. Also Eldritch Evolution gives you a tutor while removing their creature. Bubbling Cauldron also gives you some more easily repeatable sacrifice. Otherwise, it looks solid!

Hey there,

Lovely list and a great showcase game you played at MTG Muddstah! Kudos for rocking Multani for such a long time.

When browsing through your list, I noticed you omitted a few cards that I really enjoy in my list. I was wondering what your thoughts are on those, if you considered them and what made you leave them out in your build.

Cheers!
