Ohda on Another Haptra deck

1 day ago

Hey there !

I would suggest you some ramps spells like Rampant Growth, Nature's Lore ( my personnal favorite ), Farseek ( even if the fact that you don't include Bayou or Overgrown Tomb makes it less effective ), Kodama's Reach and Cultivate have the advantage of not being turn two drops so you can get your commander on the table and next turn start to ramp.

I really don't like the Tempt with Discovery and I usually am not tempted when anyone plays a card like it. It is way too expensive even if, in the right condition I get it, that cards goes bonkers and trim your deck. Also even if Harvest Season is a great card on paper, you want to ramp early, even if you didn't miss a drop you can only hope for a 3 lands spells on turn three. Considering you would need a Sol Ring in your hand, a basic of each color, Thrull Parasite, Sakura-Tribe Elder AND Noose Constrictor in your opening hand. That's a real struggle I think. You would rather have a 1-2 ramp spell most of the time.

I love the inclusion of Uncage the Menagerie but it only has 5 targets at X=3 ( if you didn't draw any yet ) and 5 at X=4, I think it would be interresting to work on that and change a bit your curve. I would prefer going for more 3CMC cards, as I think casting more cards is better than casting a big one each turn.

Some good 3 mana creatures that would fit your deck are :

Skullwinder : Better than Eternal Witness sometimes...

Banewhip Punisher : Good cheap removal that gets often overlooked.

Serrated Biskelion : Two snakes in a turn if Hapatra is on the battlefield.

Manglehorn : It can mess with a late Sol Ring or most of the ramp / filter artifacts and pretty cheap card !

Another great creature that I would love to include in my deck if the format was 101 cards is Tenacious Hunter pretty budget and a killer in 1v1.

Sorry for the long comment, hope this helps in case you were seaching for some new cards to look at for your deck that seems already fun to me :) Have a nice day !

The whole deck is a sick beast. Totally love this. I really just don't get what drekavak is there for. Just to trigger the madness on alms of the vein? Noose Constrictor or Wild Mongrel might be better for that as you don't have to trigger the madness as the creature enters.

As a side not: Noose Constrictor is a strictky better wild mongrel.

Besides: cool list. Arrogant Wurm and Honored Hydra are great payoffs for madness. I really like Hammer of Bogardan as well, as it can be discarded and be a reccuring source of damage later.

Towner_Willow on Gitrog Monster: Budget Possible?

2 weeks ago

i love the Frog, and im excited to see a budget list floating around. cards i would recommend and Ramunap Excavator and Beseech the Queen if you wanna keep it at this price point.

A your running the Dakmor Salvage combo and you have a few discard outlets but the need Mana to be payed into them. Noose Constrictor Putrid Imp and Skirge Familiar are all free and are cheep. I also don't see a win with the combo adding a Dark Ritual and Exsanguinate makes it when your holding your deck you can win. both cards are budget friendly and dont add to much complication to the combo. you could also use Bog Witch for this combo just cast Dark Ritual in response to the Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre trigger shuffle Ulamog, a land, and the Ritual. Discard Dakmor. repeat until you got a ton of and cast Exsanguinate. profit

I think this deck can be powerful because the main combo is so affordable.

Maybe try a land-heavy deck and a playset Noose Constrictor? Add some Life from the Loam and you'll have a pretty big knight.

Edit: Swap Mastery of the Unseen for Noose Constrictor. Allows you to discard enchantments in hand before playing Replenish while Starfield of Nyx is out.

I actually forgot that I dropped the Prakhata Pillar-Bug and Noose Constrictor for Jarad's Orders so only pay attention to my second paragraph lol

I actually did run that instead of Noose Constrictor at first but I personally think that having another discard outlet is much better than an ability that doesn't do much a lot of the time.

Lifelink simply isn't that relevant with this deck since you can just remove counters from the Necrotic Ooze to gain life with a Spike Feeder in the graveyard.
