Oath of Druids


At the beginning of each player's upkeep, that player chooses target player who controls more creatures than he or she does and is his or her opponent. The first player may reveal cards from the top of his or her library until he or she reveals a creature card. If he or she does, that player puts that card onto the battlefield and all other cards revealed this way into his or her graveyard.

Oath of Druids Discussion

RedUndead40 on Commander 2017 - Spoilers

I wouldn't call $3 cards decent reprints considering last year we got cards like Oath of Druids which was $20 at the time. With the reprint Bladewing will likely drop into the $1 range

I'm actually liking some of the new cards in the upcoming Commander release. I figured we could use a thread to discuss what cards are playable in the new set and people's thoughts on them from a non-EDH perspective.

Some of my thoughts so far:

Teferi's Protection

This seems solid in Ad Nauseam, but I'm not experienced with the deck to know whether this is better than any of the other Angel's Grace cards. The nice thing is you can respond to a Doomsday or Ad Nauseam as usual, but you're not stuck at 1 life. You can also use it defensively to phase out your permanents to protect yourself from Wasteland.

You can also use the protection on yourself so you can dodge cards like Hymn to Tourach.

Curse of Opulence

I might play around with this in Goblins. Getting Lotus Petals each turn seems strong in conjunction with Aether Vial. Might also try some kind of weird R/x Prison deck with Mishra's Factory beatdowns.

Mirror of the Forebearers

The mana costs on this are lower than Mirage Mirror. An activation cost of seems solid when you want to create multiple Goblin Piledrivers, hatebears, or Priest of Titania. The downside is that it can only be used on tribal cards and you need to have a creature in play worth copying.

Alms Collector

"That's a nice Brainstorm you have there. It would sure be a shame if you were to get Notion Thief'd by Death and Taxes..."

Hungry Lynx

Not sure if this will find a home in any Legacy decks, moreso that it's kind of a cute beatstick. I was thinking Maverick may have a slot for it, since there's some synergy with Qasali Pridemage. You could also make some weird Illness in the Ranks deck. Hunted Troll , Hunted Phantasm , and Forbidden Orchid would be the other cards, but this doesn't seem like a viable strategy in Legacy to me.

Oddly, it might be better in a BUG Fish shell in Vintage. Combined with Null Rods, Trygon Predator, etc., you get mainboard hate against Oath of Druids and Monastery Mentor.

Stalking Leonin

Another piece of removal for Hatebear strategies. I like this guy, especially since it gets rid of the creature permanently and you don't have to do weird Flickerwisp + Fiend Hunter things. The only downside is you can't deal with a creature before it attacks, specifically Emrakul, the Aeons Torn in the Show and Tell matchup. Still, I'm 99% positive this guy finds itself taking over slots in D&T.

Any other cards people are thinking about playing in their Eternal non-EDH decks? As far as I know, the full card spoiler hasn't been released anywhere, so there will likely be other new playables or staples coming out. I don't think we're going to see anything on the level as True-Name Nemesis, but some of these come close.

You could run Selective Memory to combo with Laboratory Maniac/Oath of Druids. You could also run Chance Encounter as a secondary win-con :D

Hi, I am in need of help cycling cards out of my deck for the cards in my maybeboard unless they don't really seem like they would work well in the deck. I am trying to make a chaos deck with a few good win cons that people won't always see coming. I need to get fewer creatures so that I can use Oath of Druids + Laboratory Maniac without it taking a long time. Here's the deck Cascading Chaos, Depths of Insanity

Use brackets around each card so that people can hover over and see them. I.e. Oath of Druids

Right now you're in legacy territory with the cards you've named. In modern, players often use Goryo's Vengeance or Through the Breach to sneak Griselbrand into play.

In Legacy, he is most often used in B/R Reanimator with the use of the Entomb + Animate Dead or Reanimate.

How competitive are you trying to make the deck? Are you wanting it for modern or legacy?

Ooo...I like them. I found them in my LGS and added them into my unfinished paper deck. Im unsure of what to take out for them on here. Also, they work similarly to Kamahl, Fist of Krosa whose probably better, I think (I havent picked up Kamahl yet).

From what Ive been playing around in paper. This deck wants a ton of lands. I'm afraid to go lower than 65, but I guess I'll try it out before editting here.

On a related note, I added Oath of Druids to my paper deck for another great way to filter through lands (I have no idea how I missed it), and it works great!

In light of the recent MTGO Commander Banlist announcement, I thought to ask everyone what the banlist would look like if they made it.

The following proposed banlist is my opinion of what the banlist should look like. You will see 3 criteria for what makes a card unfit for the format, and a list of what cards could be banned based on them:
