Mystic Snake Discussion

Has anyone suggested Mystic Snake yet? He seems OP in this deck especially if you were to add some blinking to it like Momentary Blink or Cloudshift (I think Blink is superior due to flashback, but grace is indeed faster and is worded more in your favor in niche cases).

Great list! I had Vexing Shusher but found it a bit slow, so I recommend Prowling Serpopard instead. It has worked great for me.

Also maybe you could reduce your land count to fill in more protection like: Mystic Snake, Heroic Intervention, Draining Whelk, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir. If you need more ideas go to my list: Its all natural baby.

Last_Laugh I did consider those cards, but I didn't really need the pillowfort effect of Elephant Grass, and I would need to pay some amount of accumulated upkeep for Ancestral Knowledge for it to be useful unless I just exile most of the cards which would weaken a Primal Surge. Also it doesn't work well with fetches. But thanks for leaving a comment!

Flash1995 Embalm and eternalize don't work since you have to exile the original card from the graveyard. Unless you mean just casting the original creatures. I think there are more powerful ETBs to exploit apart from those. You could build it like Meren decks with sac outlets and add in some good blue cards. I think Mystic Snake, Eidolon of Blossoms, Spore Frog, Master Biomancer, Profaner of the Dead, Smothering Abomination, Path of Discovery, and Cream of the Crop could be good for what you're trying to do.

I love this deck, it gives me a lot of geat ideas for my Muld deck however, I will suggest removing Mystic Snake because it doesn't synergize with the commander ability. Maybe with some more ramp for those creature costs.

TheDevicer on Animar vs. Kaalia

In the grand scheme of things, Animar has the potential to head a stronger deck, but power is relative in EDH. A lot depends on who you play against. If I were to pick one, I'd go with your Animar list. Still, both are pretty far from what the most competitive versions of these deck can look like. I also have to point out that pushing either of these decks to their limits in terms of power will likely lead to less fun for bothh you and most groups as pretty much anything that's been expertly tuned will wreck face at an average pod. Shooting for raw power is almost always a terrible idea when building an EDH deck.

Still, if you're looking to improve your animar list, I highly recommend adding in just a few hyper efficient counters to protect against board wipes. The deck currently has 0 instants. Stuff like Stubborn Denial, Swan Song, etc. will help you protect your boardstate once you've built one up while also not slowing you down too much. The thing with stuff like Mystic Snake is that if you want to keep them up as options to interact, they often eat your entire turn early on.

JoeBob21 on Rashmi, Tempo Crafter

I run a Blue-Green Standard thats all about 'cheating' cards out. Here are a couple of the cards from my decklist: Manaplasm is a great card because you'll play at least three cards a turn with Rashmi, Eternities Crafter out. Plasm Capture is (in my opinion) better than Mystic Snake. Wayward Swordtooth gives some good mana advangtage. Traverse the Outlands is just an awesome ramp card. Lifecrafter's Bestiary is a scry/draw inlet. Strionic Resonator is a slightly pricey ability copier. Rishkar's Expertise is a perfect cheat card but im not sure how it willl work out in this deck... Lurking Predators works with Rashmi on other peoples turns!!! Do you face any counter decks at you playgroup? I play against one so I have a Prowling Serpopard

T12H on BUG Birthing Pod Toolbox Control

I did some games with Protean Hulk in this deck. I found that it can be pretty great. But the later the game goes the worse it gets because I usually pod most of my best targets for it out and then it just becomes decent.

I found a pretty awesome comboish play with it when I was playing with it:

Hulk dies:

Get Sidisi's Faithful and Phyrexian Delver. Have the delver trigger resolve first getting back your hulk, then the new hulk gets sacrificed to the exploit trigger of the faithful unsummoning something.

Hulk triggers again:

Get Phantasmal Image and Disciple of Bolas. Image clones the delver getting back the same hulk which you then sac to the disciple trigger drawing 6 cards and gaining 6 life.

Hulk triggers a third time:

Then I could get any value cards for this last loop: drake and a clone? Maybe eternal witness and something else. Just whatever is most optimal.

It's pretty great value but I was trying to get my mana curve down and I rather have immediate impacted rather than waiting for it to die or hoping to have a sac outlet. I do run it in elves because it's pretty insane to get the board full of 4 1-drop elves and a Priest of Titania.

Also Mystic Snake is one of the most important cards in the deck. The fact that it there are no restrictions on what it can counter is why I play it.

Thanks for the suggestions!
