Rekram on Better bring bugspray for this one

seshiro_of_the_orochi Great card ideas! I includet them and dropped 2x Obelisk of Urd but i should probably drop 4 more cards to get back to 60 cards. Any ideas what I should drop?

I actually didn't see the land count. Upping it would be a good idea. A card you could consider is Song of Freyalise. It's a great ramp card that can as well become a finisher with a good board. To help your land "problem", some Fertile Thicket might be useful. A card you could drop is Obelisk of Urd. I think it's too expensive compared to eldrazi monument.

This deck has gone through 3 iterations, each bringing a different color identity. The deck started at Mardu with Zurgo Helmsmasher, then 4 color with Saskia the Unyielding, and now finally full WUBRG with Najeela, the Blade-Blossom. So a lot of the cards you have been in the deck at one point.

Aven Wind Guide is definitely a cards I need to think about, Brighthearth Banneret as well. Champion of Lambholt was in the running during the Saskia stage, but was cut because I didn't think it would do great, but it definitely would now. Rushblade Commander was under consideration as well, but looking back I should have cut Madrush Cyclops instead. Thrasher Brute will be considered as well.

Aura Shards would be a good idea seeing as this deck has the capacity to produce tons of tokens. Settle the Wreckage is a nice instant speed board wipe, and you underestimate Insidious Will. It is awesome to just turn someone's Path to Exile or other ambush effect when you are attacking and turn it against its caster.

Card draw isn't a huge concern, but there is always a place for it. Both Obelisk of Urd and Door of Destinies were in here at a point, they will have to find a spot once again.

You also underestimate Aggravated Assault I won't always have Najeela, and there is a possibility that I won't have WUBRG.

Hazezon Tamar is mostly here for more tokens, and Dakkon Blackblade is a beast, he can get huge. This can draw attention away from other cards, or just do some damage. Ezuri, Claw of Progress, is a nice card. All these tokens that get produced give me experience counters, allowing me to dump counters on stuff until my opponents are forced to get rid of Ezuri. Jazal Goldmane is nice because if I have a lot of tokens it makes them huge.

The +2/+2 affect of Bear Umbra is just a perk, the real power comes from the "When this creature attacks, untap all lands you control"

Thanks for the suggestions, this will help the deck advance and become better!

Najeela is super sweet. My roommate recently built a deck that doesn't emphasize her activated ability, but it still has some good warrior options.

One thing I notice immediately is that your mana curve is relatively high. If you have enough low-cost creatures for it be worth it, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death can be warrior-based recursion. Aven Wind Guide boosts Najeela's tokens, literally. Brighthearth Banneret is great Warrior ramp. Did you know Champion of Lambholt is a warrior? Also Mindblade Render, Rushblade Commander, and definitely Thrasher Brute from Battlebond.

You don't have any enchantment/artifact removal, so I'd suggest adding a Nature's Claim or even Aura Shards. Honestly, I don't think Insidious Will or Settle the Wreckage are necessary. The deck isn't trying to be a control deck and with all the ways to give your chump blockers vigilance, being attacked isn't a problem.

You also need more draw power. Skullclamp is where it's at. Bident of Thassa is also nice. Obelisk of Urd and Door of Destinies can buff all your warriors.

Aggravated Assault is unnecessary. Bear Umbra only works on the one creature it's attached to. Consider Beastmaster Ascension, Fervor, Intangible Virtue, Parallel Lives, and the "safe" Coat of Arms, Shared Animosity.

Skyshroud Claim isn't good in a 5 color deck and Genesis Wave isn't what the deck is wanting to do. Consider Harvest Season for ramp and things like Blasphemous Act, Dreadbore, and Hull Breach for more removal.

I'm not gonna say much about the land base other than you absolutely need at least some basics. Strip Mine is a thing and so is Blood Moon. Also, Unclaimed Territory and Path of Ancestry.

I don't love Hazezon Tamar because he's so slow and also cost-prohibitive for most people. Dakkon Blackblade isn't worth his mana cost compared to other warrior options you have available. I'm not a fan of using the experience counter commanders in the 99 (Ezuri) because they never seem impactful enough while they're around. I think there's better/cheaper options to replace Jazal that aren't so white heavy. Rubblebelt Raiders only benefits itself.

To summarize: make the deck more synergistic with warriors that support all warriors rather than just themselves, add more card draw, add more removal, focus on the goal of the deck.

lagotripha on A Satyr Deck Exists Now.

At least we aren't talking about a playset of Shared Animosity. Reprint on it should bring it down some at least.

On the note of more tribal stuff, Descendants' Path, Obelisk of Urd and Stoneforge Masterwork. One of these is in the price range even! Its just unambigously the worst of them.

I'm increasinly certain the only playable satyr deck will be some kind of jank combo.

So first of all, you aren't running enough creatures. 12 is less than what a midrange deck like Jund runs. You need to hit the critical mass to make your lords good and stuff. Even with Sarco and Salvation it is only 17 which is way too low.

Secondly Sarcomancy and Herald's Horn haven't been put in any modern legal sets so you can't get those.

Really I think zombies benefits from Cryptbreaker, Gravecrawler and Dread Wanderer not to be running them. Dread Wanderer at least lets you restart your board with Gravecrawler.

Diregraf Colossus is probably too slow. It just eats a path, and when you play in on turn 3 it will be a 2/2 ideally. Door of Destiny also fails by the same hurdle. Obelisk of Urd doesn't shore up any match up, and the time spent tapping out for it is generally equal to 1 attack which you could of made if you didn't tap out for it. Endless Ranks requires a board to be decent and doesn't shore up any of the decks issues.

As for lords, Lord of the Accursed is your best bet in mono black. Gravecrawler/Dread return themselves. Relentless Dead returns everything else. Lord lets you force through damage a lot better. Cemetery Reaper is also worth a consideration as it eats graveyard stuff to turn off reanimator style decks, while also making 3/3 tokens.

Damnation could go in the sideboard, as mainboard you want everything to feed into your beat down plan.

Sign in Blood is probably OK, but consider adding Smuggler's Copter, as a psudo haste for zombies, as well as letting you go through your deck quicker and you can always discard the returnable stuff.

Liliana's Reaver fails the bolt test and isn't that good really for a 4 drop that needs to connect. Lingering Souls sees too much play as well. Plague Belcher might be a better option. a 5/4 menace if you let, say, gravecrawler eat the -1/-1 counters and it makes board wipes and removal painful.

enpc on Rats in EDH: How would ...

1 month ago

WHile there are some good effects in off colours, I think your best bet is to stick with mono black. Other colours will provide some nice support, but won't really feed into the rat tribal theme.

As for support cards, Obelisk of Urd and Dragon Throne of Tarkir are both great to run. I'm not a huge fan of Coat of Arms as tribal themes are quite common in EDH and it just ends up that everything gets buffed.

Interesting deck list. Some cards you might want to think about adding is Shared Triumph, Glory of Warfare, Fervent Charge, Door of Destinies, Obelisk of Urd, Radiant Destiny, and Cathars' Crusade since anthem effects can be pretty strong.

Also Taurean Mauler is also a pretty strong vampire to consider as well. Throne of the God-Pharaoh is an easy way to milk lots of damage out of your opponents continously. Another good choice to consider is Grenzo, Havoc Raiser, while he isn't a vampire he may as well read vampires you control get either effect which both are really powerful given any situation. Slate of Ancestry would be a ridiculously easy way to draw tons of cards. Lastly Goblin War Drums is an excellent way to give all your creatures easy evasion.

I hope my suggestions have been of some use to you.
