Natural State Discussion

SynergyBuild on Why Have Mass Damage-Prevention Effects ...

4 days ago

Not really, both white and green have effects from Naturalize to Disenchant, Natural State and the newish Fragmentize, Crush Contraband is a favorite of mine on that access.

Damage prevention, mass or specific (Fog vs Healing Salve), is like green or white lifegain, both colors have it, and both will have effects such as lifegain or damage prevention for a long time, extrapolating from the past cards that have been printed, those are the overlapping effects in-game, next to token generation (1/1s in particular, such as the Selesnya Solder Tokens or the Saprolings in current standard), and card draw dependent on creatures (M19's Mentor of the Meek and GRN's Beast Whisperer)

MrCuddlefish on [Pauper] Bant Exalted Vehicles

So as a fellow player of Renegade Freighter I'm happy to call this one of the coolest new takes on the idea for vehicles. The exalted really helps push damage through and you seem pretty capable of being a real threat even without vehicles. Mobile Garrison is also intersting as it help defend, but I feel as though it could be a dead card if you already have a Frieghter out and attacking, but whether you agree or not with that is fine.

However I'd say that you should think about Kami of False Hope or Holy Day instead of Fog in the sideboard as you seem to have more white than green mana sources. Additionally I would run either Natural State or Fragmentize over Caustic Caterpillar unless you want to keep the creature to help crew vehicles. Also I would consider a few other ideas:

Sideboard Change Reccomendations: 2 Holy Day or Kami of False Hope, 2 Fragmentize or Natural State, 2 Gods Willing or Benevolent Bodyguard or Apostle's Blessing, 3 Mana Leak or Dispell or Vapor Snag, 3 Spell Pierce, 3 Life Goes On,

Mana Leak is a good card, but if your using three colours you'll probably want to use as efficent spells as possible such as Dispell; and Vapor Snag is also a good way to stop irritating creatures and is a favorite of mine but Mana leak is still good so keep it if you like it. But mana efficency is also why I reccomend Apostle's Blessing as it can cast with any colour; and as a side note Benevolent Bodyguard can crew vehicles which is relevent, which is also applicable to my recomendation for Kami of False Hope.

I know this may seem like a lot of stuff to reccomend but I love your deck concept and I'd love to see it improve! Cheers and have fun out there!

You can always throw in a few delve threats like Sultai Scavenger and Gurmag Angler.

A copy of Thorn of the Black Rose could be great card draw for the deck. Maybe Pulse of Murasa instead of Gnaw? Gnaw could still be great in the sideboard though.

Also maybe move the Edicts to the board and cut the Faeries, and just main board Bojuka Bog.

Mephitic Vapors could be another great card for the board. I also just like Natural State over the caterpillars.

Either way I think you're on to something here, +1!

Q: When no other player helps to handle BloodPod or Breakfast Hulk, they are very hard to beat. (If you have some suggestions, write it down)

A: These are pretty much uphill battles but there are still things you can do to impede their plan.

BloodPod runs as many or even more dorks than us, which accelerates into a powerful game plan. I see that you have Caustic Caterpillar and Nature's Claim to take care of problematic enchantments(Natural State can be pretty good in a fast meta), so other things that you could consider are Minister of Pain or Make Obsolete to wipe out their dorks. If Tymna the Weaver or Tana, the Bloodsower is giving too many problems, you can consider Vendetta(does not work on Tymna), Dismember or Assassin's Trophy.

Breakfast Hulk sometimes gets the nut draw, but that's Breakfast Hulk for you. Like Bloodpod, they also run many or even more dorks than us for ramping/colour fixing etc, so what I have mentioned for Bloodpod also works for Breakfast Hulk. An important thing to note is both of these decks are quite reliant on Tymna to generate CA if they don't get the nut draw, so stop Tymna if you must. Breakfast Hulk also folds to Contamination if they don't have a dork that generate G to get rid of it.

Some ideas in no particular order, and by no means should you use all of them: Fell the Mighty, Meekstone, Beast Within, Song of the Dryads, Tamiyo, Field Researcher, Garruk Wildspeaker, Vivien Reid, Primal Rage, Archetype of Imagination, Leyline of Anticipation, Throne of the God-Pharaoh, Concordant Crossroads, Enlightened Tutor, Back from the Brink, Reinforcements, Return to the Ranks, Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle, Tree of Redemption, Wall of Frost, Wall of Ice, Wall of Junk, Wall of Shards.

I'd cut Venser, the Sojourner, Mystic Remora, Sylvan Library, Natural State, Mana Leak, Preordain, Ponder, Fragmentize, Beast Whisperer, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Orator of Ojutai, Portcullis Vine, Logic Knot.

I will note, it looks like you're playing in a highly competitive meta (Ponder, Sylvan Library, Flusterstorm, Carpet of Flowers, etc). My alterations are decidedly for a slower meta, because in my experience combat victories are a function of the speed of your opponents. Regardless, I have no idea how Arcades functions in cEDH, so take all of my recommendations with a grain of salt.

By the way, what do you think of these adjustments on my version?


  1. Merchant Scroll - This is tough because it is still a tutor. But with a bunch of cantrips and card draw, I either get what I need or get better tutors in hand.

  2. Training Grounds - Becomes a hot target when Thrasios is in play.

  3. Natural State - replaced by Assassin’s Trophy


  1. Rhystic Study - I usually have a creature heavy playgroup, so Mystic Remora sometimes doesn’t give much.

  2. Windfall - I just think this is still a powerful card. Synergizes strongly with Notion Thief, Yawgmoth’s Will and it can give you more cards.

  3. Assassin's Trophy - oh man, how I love this card.

@Fenix15 Phyrexian Delver creates an additional body for Razaketh to sacrifice.

@Niahburn I do not have much experience playing against blood pod because nobody I play with owns it in paper and my online practice dropped off before the deck became super popular. That being said, some good anti-hate cards are stuff like Wipe Away, Reclamation Sage, Natural State, Gilded Drake, and a few others that can be catered to what you face specifically.

@Lazaruz13 I have always been opposed to Telepathy because it does nothing that a little foresight and caution can't handle. If you are interested in this effect Gitaxian Probe will be able to accomplish, provided you have a read on your meta. Scroll Rack is really slow. It seems like Sylvan Library provides the same advantage faster and with a negligible cost. The synergy of putting things on top to be milled with Sidisi is cute, but ultimately not worth it in cEDH.

I think you may want of have a copy of Natural State in this deck, as it hits the main two worst stax pieces for the combo, Sphere of Resistance and Torpor Orb, as well as Damping Matrix, but no one runs Damping Matrix. If you see some Blood Pod, though it won't hit Pod, it does work against many of their cards from Rule of Law/Eidolon of Rhetoric to some of the prior mentioned stax pieces, all at instant speed for a single .

I would most likely drop Thought Scour, because that card is the worst cantrip in the deck and only really is useful for Laboratory Maniac.
