Last_Laugh on If Only I Had Thorns Like a Thistle

1 day ago

I gots me a few suggestions. First I'll start with budget options and move into the not-so-budget suggestions.

Budget:Flayer of the Hatebound, Ogre Battledriver, Anger, Dack's Duplicate, Dimir House Guard, Aura Thief (if you play against many Ghostly Prison effects), Falkenrath Aristocrat, Grim Haruspex (omg, get this in here!), Living Death, Metallic Mimic, Venser, Shaper Savant, Urabrask the Hidden, and Jokulhaups (kinda douchey, but very effective).

Not budget: Sneak Attack (should be #1 on your expensive acquire list, it's worth it), Spellskite (redirect the same spell as many times as needed), Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Phyrexian Altar, Sakashima the Impostor (only clone in mtg that can copy your own commander, double dethrone is gross), Fulminator Mage, Toxic Deluge, and Grave Pact

Split-second43, I see your point, but if Butcher of the Horde fails, Krenko, Mob Boss swarming is backup. Krenko, with Ogre Battledriver smarms with haste. And since Ankle Shanker and Goblin Heelcutter are both goblins for krenko and why not.MochiCatParty that isnt a bad idea.

Last_Laugh I'm with you on this card. It's absurdly strong and can win games. I just need a sac engine and suddenly can shoot an enormous amount of damage. I love to play it together with In the Web of War or Ogre Battledriver

Last_Laugh on Marchesa, the Black Rose

Grim Haruspex doesn't need a sac outlet or anything to be good, just your commander, and even then she takes him from good to great.

Just be aggressive, a lot of your creatures should be dying in combat if you don't have a sac outlet. Boardwipes also get used, as does spot removal. This all draws you cards. I personally run a LOT of sac outlets though as haste and free sacs make this deck tick. I'd try to find room for the sac outlets I pointed out and any mass hasters like Anger, Urabrask the Hidden or Ogre Battledriver to get those counters asap.

Anyways, enjoy the deck, it takes a different mindset. I love the looks I get when I t1 fetch an untapped shockland to lose 3 life... with no use for the mana lol.

Last_Laugh on Its all natural baby

Gots me a few suggestions with no real budget in mind.

First, cuts with a specific card to replace:

Cryptolith Rite for Earthcraft - doesn't need haste to get mana like Rite does.

Deceiver Exarch for Zealous Conscripts - works in your Jiki combo still but just a better card by itself by far.

Beastiary for at least 1 (possibly all) of the following Glimpse of Nature, Soul of the Harvest, and maybe Garruk's Packleader if you've got enough 3+ power creatures. - Free draw is better than paying mana

Now, just suggestions to add:

Yes to Bloom Tender all day. On that note, look into Somberwald Sage as well. Cloud of Faeries and Ogre Battledriver both deserve slots too.

Nemesis on Living End Players, Assemble!

Curses! Defeated by reading once again! Thanks for pointing out the exile part of Living End, I'd have never noticed. I'll try it with Ogre Battledriver instead. It'll be even less consistent of a kill, but who knows?

Garmads on "...and my X!"

1 week ago

Hidran, what do you think I should swap? The non X creatures all serve some purpose such as ramp, mana increasing shenanigans, or just plain goodness like Ogre Battledriver allowing Rosheen to do her thing immediately and Rampaging Baloths to wreak havoc with Traverse the Outlands / Boundless Realms.
