Noose Constrictor Discussion

seshiro_of_the_orochi on My snake deck (that title took me two weeks...)

2 days ago

CheapDecks101, Tio_Infernape: I know Tranquil Thicket and the like, but the deserts will hopefully have some synergy soon as I'm planning on including some copies of Ramunap Hydra. Unfortunately, I couldn't get any yet. I'm planning to get to like six deserts and two Ramunap. This in combination with Commune with the Gods and Noose Constrictor should make a turn 4 5/5 Ramunap Hydra possible. Thanks a lot for your input though. Without it, I maybe would have forgotten to take them out if I decided against Ramunap.

Regarding the cats: I just ordered the feline ferocity deck. It's just so freaking awesome. Raksha, Kemba, Jedit, Mirri...damn, I can't wait to hear them purr ;)

Juha on Aggro and Discard served with Card Draw

Thanks for the comment, Asmodeo!Agreed. This deck should be or , but I just don't have the cards.

There will be grave-hate in the second game and it will hurt: Noxious Revival, Faithless Looting, Spite of Mogis and Bedlam Reveler. As an answer I've been thinking about sideboarding the deck into a simple burn deck.

I like Forked Bolt over Wild Slash.

Noose Constrictor just doesn't grow enough, but I like Become Immense! It will need fetch lands to really work, though.

First off, I like the deck.

Scondly:Some enchantment removal in the side for Rest in Peace that would impair both Bedlam Reveler and Spite of Mogis? Why not Lightning Axe? Sideboard Blood Moon is a good idea too. It seems that both Anger of the Gods and Pyroclasm in the side are a little too much AOE. Also, I would switch Forked Bolt for Wild Slash or some other Lightning Bolt - like spell.

Finally, I suggest the splash in green for Noose Constrictor and Become Immense. (N.B.: I take this suggesiton for a standard deck I built back than, if it can help you: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/02-05-17-shadow-of-the-grave/)

...Hope this was of some help, Good luck developing and playtesting it.

Thanks Hobbez9186

Although it won't get as big as Noose Constrictor, the ability of Olivia's Dragoon to discard at instant speed repeatedly would be a strength in this deck.

Argy on Wizards doing away with FNM ...

The FNM promos tend not to be "bombs".

They are more like support cards.

Things like Noose Constrictor, Fortune's Favor, Incendiary Flow, Servo Exhibition, Unlicensed Disintegration, and Aether Hub.

You wouldn't really "build a deck" around any of those, but you might use them to "bling" a deck you already have.

Mono_Land: I see your point, but this deck is not focused on cycling/discarding effects...

Noose Constrictor combos superbly well with Archfiend of Ifnir and Ruthless Sniper. I am currently thinking about creating a GB Counters Deck with these cards...

Thank you for your advice!

Seems like you'd want to take advantage of having many lands hitting the field or the yard at once.

Jaddi Offshoot as a nice little blocker that will gain you a ton of life. A solid one drop.

The Gitrog Monster is a popular land engine to draw extra cards while cycling or destroying lands. It's also a huge threatening creature that is somewhat difficult to deal with. Allows you to play extra land as well. Pairs incredibly well with Ramanup Excavator and Mina and Denn.

Mina and Denn, Wildborn allows you to play even more land in a turn and has a means of granting trample to itself or others while also guaranteeing land drops after picking up your own lands. Awesome with Constrictor and Tracker who don't otherwise have trample.

Noose Constrictor gives you a way to pitch lands for free to make it bigger while drawing cards (Gitrog) and pairs nicely with Gitrog and Excavator.

Ghirapur Orrery more land drops and potentially even more draw. Pairs very well with Constrictor as you can dump your hand at the end of your opponent's turn to draw 4 new cards.

Tireless Tracker because landfall to give you card advantage and size advantage.

Tunneling Geopede would require a splash of red, but absolutely devastating source of repeatable damage.

Undergrowth Champion is really hard to deal with. Fantastic underutilized creature.

Just some ideas from decks laying around. Too bad most of those cycle out of rotation in a few months and would require playing Jund, but lots of neat tricks to play around with. Could even consider a copy of Omnath, Locus of Rage for all of those landfall triggers to generate explosive 5/5 elementals.

Food for thought, good luck :)

Other people have mentioned it but I strongly recommend Key to the City since it guarantees Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons will hit face. Noose Constrictor will will allow you to discard cards for free to activate Archfiend of Ifnir's ability.
