Nimble Mongoose Discussion

Ash Barrens was indeed making me much slower for very little benefit. Since splashing green, I replaced them with Land Grant. Delver of Secrets  Flip was also a bit too slow/inconsistent for me, (despite being half instant/sorcery cards and having Ponder,) thinking of Nimble Mongoose since it'll consistently be a 3/3 one-drop with shroud to annoy RDW.

I like it!

I'm no pauper expert, but for the sake of Brainstorming ideas, have you tried: Kumena's Speaker, Delver of Secrets  Flip, Careful Study, Nimble Mongoose, Cunning Survivor, or Obsessive Search?

Depends on the format. Green has some excellent cards of a few descriptions. It wants a little for creature removal (even if it does have a little) but playing it gives you access to Regrowth, Eternal Witness, a lot of disenchant effects, Doubling Season, really solid ramp, and great finishers. Also a couple of tutors. And, though this might be just me, Overwhelming Stampede effects, which can kill multiple people with ease.

If we talkin' eternal staples, Goyf, Shardless Agent, DRS, Bloodbraid Elf, Primeval Titan, Crop Rotation, Scavenging Ooze, Nimble Mongoose... The list goes on. Every color has a large purpose.

Very cool build! Seems like a lot of fun when it goes off.

Have you considered 1-2 Hooting Mandrills and/or Gurmag Anglers as potential top-ends? They can drop turn 3-4 pretty consistently if your beetles/feeders are stalling out, especially if you were to swap out some of your Jungle Hollows for Evolving Wilds.

If you're not feeling the Delve, there are some other cool, synergistic cards that come to mind:

Love it as is, just thought I'd share... Happy brewing!

OK, so there are a few eldrazi decks in Legacy.

Big Eldrazi with Mana Rocks, Cloudpost Eldrazi, UW Stoneblade Eldrazi, GW Flicker Eldrazi, Colourless Eldrazi Stompy, UW Ulamog Eldrazi.

These decks all have 1 thing in common. They lean on the power of the good eldrazi with 3-4 Eye of Ugin and Eldrazi Temple to power out Thought-Knot Seer and Reality Smasher. Cards which you are not running.

This deck is inconsistent, with out a full playset of any of the good cards, and the cards you've got a low impact. Why play a 1 mana 1/1 with ingest and who loots on death, when you can play a turn 1 Nimble Mongoose, Deathrite Shaman or Delver of Secrets  Flip.

What element of Eldrazi do you want to focus on? Their low cost exile synergy, their midrange beaters, their high end beasties?

Nimble Mongoose and Werebear are good in this deck. Grisly Salvage and cards like it help fill your grave.

I did say it was a ton:

Arbor Elf x5, Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, Misdirection (masques), Dakmor Salvage x3 (2 FUT, 1 DD), Sudden Shock x2, Wild Nacatl x2, Qasali Pridemage, Martyr of Sands x2, Nimble Mongoose, Thought Scour x4 (3 DKA, 1 DD), Skred x4, Kor Firewalker x4, Zealous Persecution x2, Firespout, Magma Jet (DD), Dissipate x2 (M15), Darksteel Citadel x2, Breakthrough (CNS), Sakura-Tribe Elder x4, Duress x4 (M13), Sulfur Elemental x2, Vapor Snag, Ornithopter x4, Wipe Away, Mystical Teachings x2, Boreal Druid x3, Volcanic Fallout (CNS), Ingot Chewer x4, Empty the Warrens x4, Punishing Fire x4, Condemn x4, Dragon's Claw x4, Combust x4, Elvish Visionary x4, Farseek x4, Edge of Autumn x4 (FUT), Repeal x4 (GPT), Think Twice x4 (TSP), Intangible Virtue x4, Raise the Alarm x2, Celestial Purge x4, Ray of Revelation (JUD), Apostle's Blessing x4, Patrician's Scorn x4 (FUT), Wispmare x4, Leonin Relic-Warder x2, Izzet Staticaster, Grapple with the Past x3, Take Inventory x2, Steel Sabotage x4, Zulaport Cutthroat x2, Blessed Alliance, Lightning Storm, Welding Jar, Stubborn Denial, Dispel (2 RTR, 2 BFZ), Faerie Macabre x2, Tuktuk Scrapper, and Energy Flux

That's everything I have that's unlisted from your wants. Everything that's listed as a match I checked to make sure I still have, so request anything. There are a few cards that I've offered to other people for trades, so if you want them I'll wait a day or two on their reply (specifically, the Eldrazi Displacers you mentioned).

I also added a few things since you last looked though my binder, like 4 Puresteel Paladins and 4 Etched Champions, so let me know if anything new jumps out at you.

Since you mentioned edition, I tried to be accurate on what printing each card is with these. I can't guarantee that everything in my binder is 100% accurate on edition, but I try to do my best to make sure each card is at least showing the correct art and card frame.

Cards of yours I'm specifically interested in are: Diabolic Intent, 2 Stoneforge Mystics, Gate to Phyrexia, Monastery Mentor, 2 Toxic Deluge, Forbidden Orchard, and Quirion Ranger, though of course I'll trade for any other matches as well.

Hope to hear from you.
