Nacatl War-Pride Discussion

Hybrow I put in Prowler's Helm & cut Whispersilk Cloak for the same reason I cut Lightning Greaves: because of the shroud. Makes it too difficult to equip with other equipment & renders Eminence useless. I cut Sword of Feast and Famine & Sword of Light and Shadow for the same reason (protection from white/green). Thanks for the suggestions though! I have thought about Nacatl War-Pride before, but he just seems too costly mana-wise.. of he was 3G, instead of 3GGG, then I would play him, but I cut all the really high CMC cats & it plays better with the lower curve; the only creatures I kept over 6-CMC are Felidar Sovereign, Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith, Raksha Golden Cub, and Sun Titan. Qasali Ambusher just doesn't have enough of an impact to make a slot in EDH- I'd rather pay some mana for some good keywords or abilities. I hadn't considered Nylea's Emissary or Chariot of Victory before.. I think Nylea's Emissary is ALMOST worth it if I consider it a 6/6 Trampler for 3G (because the Eminence), but the fact that it gets taken out by enchantment-hate means everyone probably has an answer for it when it becomes their problem. Prowler's Helm is still my favorite way to get damage through, but I also have Rancor, Rogue's Passage, Sword of Fire and Ice, Sword of Vengeance, and Ahrabo's 2nd ability. Chariot of Victory might be better the Sword of Vengeance in some decks because of the Equip1, but I have at least 4 ways to cheat on equip costs (Stonehewer Giant, Sigarda's Aid, Hammer of Nazahn, Puresteel Paladin, etc), and things to tutor for those ways, so I think I'll stick with the additional +2/0 and vigilance. Thanks for the feedback, though!

I have cat tribal as well. Super fun and fast its one of my favorite decks right now. Thundercats Ho! - Arahbo EDH . I would recommend a few cards to add:

Nacatl War-Pride - works great, can only be blocked by one creature, and will wipe out any token deck.

Nylea's Emissary - the trample is great, its a bit pricey mana wise, but i find that the hardest thing is getting through that one pumped up creature.

Qasali Ambusher - is a free cat for the most part.. dont have to block with him when you flash him in, but get him for free then attack with him next turn.

Whispersilk Cloak - super cheap way to get your biggest bad guy through for a hit.

Chariot of Victory - again the trample is great. The first strike and haste are bonuses too. Make sure that that big guy is going to live

Hope these help... if you only take one if these suggestions, i would take a close look at the War Pride. Its a beast in a cat deck

Hey ripka82, fellow Arahbo, Roar of the World player, Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats

You have 20 artifacts, could benefit from Puresteel Paladin for Draw/Equip . Add Ancient Den and Tree of Tales to up your artifacts even more.

Sigarda's Aid would be a nice addition too, especially with Bloodforged Battle-Axe.

Adorned Pouncer is awesome, doubles the equipment power bonuses, can output some massive damage, double triggers like Bloodforged Battle-Axe, and he has build in recursion as a 4/4 double strike! Skyhunter Skirmisher to a lesser degree is good too.

Swords to Plowshares can be good control, or a nice lifegain if you need it (especially with a pumped up cat), cool with Felidar Sovereign. Path to Exile can be a good control, or a land fetch if your struggling with mana issues. Condemn is good, but it only gets attackers, often, the most dangerous creatures you want to remove don't attack.

Brimaz, King of Oreskos is nice for making tokens (on attack and block), but not a necessity.

Ajani, Caller of the Pride is a great double strike enabler, Lost Leonin seems like an auto-include with all that equipment for him to equip.

Lot's of ETB-Tapped lands in this build, can work on upgrading them ($$$ SUCKS), you can look at my deck for land ideas, but in general it's the most expensive component in building these decks.

Sacred Cat is a nice CMC1 () 4/4 (eminence) Lifelink, with recursive 4/4 (eminence) Lifeline

You could look at abusing Healer of the Pride with an Aluren, Whitemane Lion or a Fleetfoot Panther any of those guys can go infinite life with her.

Temur Sabertooth has some infinite ETB interactions, but none that are that great.

You could Heroic Intervention into a Divine Reckoning or Rout, gives you protection from board wipe (including your equipment from a Vandalblast or similar others).

Rupture Spire needs to be gone into the shredder, never use that land. Like ever. Explosive Vegetation could be Kodama's Reach to bring your CMC down a bit.

You could pair down your artifacts/equipments and add more tutoring to consistently get the same "excellent" rated artifacts game after game, like Enlightened Tutor, Open the Armory, Stoneforge Mystic, Stonehewer Giant, Etc. Instead of Behemoth Sledge tutor a Loxodon Warhammer instead kind of deal.

These lands are just too slow Arctic Flats. If your having a mana issue, maybe try Birds of Paradise or putting some conditional check dual lands, or cheap pain lands like City of Brass / Mana Confluence for the time being.

Could use the same strategy on creatures, instead of a High CMC Nacatl War-Pride, Eladamri's Call a Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith and get a free Hammer of Nazahn and have all your equipments auto-equip for the same CMC.

It's a good deck, I think your on track, I would include Triumph of the Hordes as an alternate to damage win-con (against other infinite life decks anyway, or when you need to fast kill a Grixis or something fast).

Cheers +1

Thank you for the suggestions ticked-off-squirrel.

  • Bow of Nylea - I've considered putting this in the deck for awhile now, I'm testing out a couple of newer cards in the same cmc spot first, but it will eventually find a home.
  • Slime Molding - this card doesn't fit the strategy of the deck. I have to dump a lot of mana into a sorcery to get a token that does nothing but provide a big body. Which isn't needed with my commander since I can make all of my creatures have big bodies.
  • Hydra Broodmaster/Heroes' Bane - I've never been a fan of hydras for this deck, they take a lot of mana to make them viable which takes away from my primary game plan. I don't need 1 or 2 big creatures that cost a lot of mana to make, when I can just use that mana to kill everyone with my elves and utility creatures.
  • Scourge of Skola Vale - I'm not built to sacrifice my creatures sustainably and want to avoid it at all costs, however this card will be amazing in a Kresh the Bloodbraided deck I'm working on, so thank you for the suggestion.
  • Breaker of Armies - I don't run eldrazi in this deck and never will. And Nacatl War-Pride provides the same advantage while making it easier to provide lethal damage when buffed by Kamahl.
  • Archetype of Endurance - I'm on the fence with this card because of the cmc, I really don't want to add another super high cost card into the deck, but i can't deny what he could bring for survivability, so I'm gonna have to playtest and see what I can come up with.

Thanks again for the suggestions

Hey, so i finally found some time to look this up. It looks really good, especially for the budget, outside of the suggestions I already made. Grab a Lurking Predators it's a fantastic card, and it fits your theme of cheating creatures out. Genesis Hydra is another great card that fits the bill as well. I would consider Champion of Lambholt, this creature would get insanely big in your deck and would make all your creatures unlockable at the same time. If you can find the budget for it, pick up Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, it's a staple in mono colored decks and would help your mana generation immensely, especially if you throw in Nacatl War-Pride. Lastly I would drop the less than stellar nonbasic you're running like Tranquil Thicket, Jungle Basin, Fertile Thicket, Hollow Trees, Llanowar Reborn, and Sapseep Forest and replace them with land grab spells like Cultivate, Nature's Lore, and Skyshroud Claim. I'd throw in Karametra's Acolyte as well, she's a beast for mana generation. Overall though it's a great start. Keep up the good work!

Half of those are in already, but I'm liking what I see in the other half. I'll see about making room for Thunderfoot Baloth, Selvala's Stampede, Rishkar's Expertise, and Nacatl War-Pride. My main concern with my Yisan deck as it stands right now is that between Yisan, Hibernation's End, Elemental Bond, Garruk's Packleader, etc. I might have a little TOO much draw. However, I'm scared to take any of it out. Some part of my instincts scream whenever I try.

Yisan is a great card, my only problem is that he can only creatures with cmc equal to the number or verse counters, not equal or less. That's the only reason i don't run him. As for some good green cards that are budget friendly, there's a lot. Nacatl War-Pride is one of my favorites. Rampaging Baloths is great, so is Pathbreaker Ibex. Arbor Colossus, Elderscale Wurm, Engulfing Slagwurm, Foe-Razer Regent, Greenwarden of Murasa, Oran-Rief Hydra, Regal Force, Siege Behemoth, Thunderfoot Baloth, Nature's Lore, Skyshroud Claim, Rishkar's Expertise, Selvala's Stampede, Harmonize, any of the Garruk or Nissa planeswalkers that are affordable. There's a bunch more, but I'm tired and need to go to bed. If you need ideas for cards that do specific things that are budget friendly let me know and I'd be happy to help
