Overcome Discussion

I originally had Overrun in here HyrdaDOOM666 but had a hard time consistently hitting three green sources on turn 5. Had a bit more luck with Overcome, but even then I often didn't hit five mana until it was too late.

ghostofsparta, thanks for the advice! Oviya is dope. As I mentioned in my description, I just find her fascinating. If you like my version be sure to up-vote it ;)

I've noticed the same thing with Oviya; her presence is kind of tertiary but a nice mana sink. Sometimes she serves as a good lightning rod because people don't realize how expensive her abilities are.

I know Skyshroud Claim is better--just didn't have one on-hand when I built the deck. It's been reprinted in the last few years but it used to be out-of-budget so I never bought any, like I did Explosive Vegetation. I don't know if you saw, but Soul of New Phyrexia and Wrap in Vigor are on the short-list for swaps for exactly the reason you stated. I haven't really fiddled with the deck in a long time since it's kind of one of my lower-powered decks to whip out with beginners. That said, I've had some extremely explosive games where I quickly crush out of nowhere, belying the deck's budget.

That's a good point about Inspiring Statuary. I've kind of scrapped the idea of Artifacts Matter, but including those three would keep some of that flavor while still being viable. I'll keep it in mind when I retool for sure!

Overcome is one I forgot about. Thanks! Arasta of the Endless Web seems good too.

I have an Oketra's Monument but it seemed too cute at the time I built the deck. Do you run it? Thoughts?

Ah, a fellow Oviya player. Warms my heart.

I've found that it's best to use her first ability as a last resort mana sink, casting the other spells in my hand first. I usually start spitting out her constructs ASAP so I can start punching face. And yes, you will look scary when your board is filled with tokens. Comes with the territory.

Find a copy of Skyshroud Claim and replace Explosive Vegetation with it, or run it alongside. Adding in that Wrap in Vigor and Soul of New Phyrexia can help against board wipes, but mainly you deal with board wipes by just recovering afterwards. If you do decide to use Inspiring Statuary then Throne of the God-Pharaoh and Genesis Chamber become much better here. Even if your opponents get a few creatures off of Chamber, they won't put up much of a fight when you steamroll them. Also, getting some extra life drain could make the overrun play easier later. BTW, Overcome is another of these overrun effects.

I'm testing Arasta of the Endless Web and Wilderness Reclamation in my build. I imagine Arasta getting out of hand quickly if not dealt with, and Wilderness allows you to play a spell AND use Oviya in the same turn cycle. Cheaper than Seedborn too, money-wise.

Secret artifact tech: Oketra's Monument. Sure, you don't get the cost reduction, but otherwise it's basically a one-sided Genesis Chamber.

Deathspore Thallid can be used to turn your saporlings into some sort of alright removal while being another slow rolling producer.

Night Soil is a great card that can just devastate people's graveyards and you get saporlings for doing it.

Life and Limb is a risky card but fallowed up with a card like Overwhelming Stampede , Overcome , or Return of the Wildspeaker

Mycologist is another slow rolling card but he is low cmc and is outside green to spread colors around as well as sacrificing for life being good.

Poison-Tip Archer , Zulaport Cutthroat , and Bastion of Remembrance can be used to get some benefit out of saporling deaths kind of like Slimefoot does.

General removal for the deck can be with cards like Murder , Vendetta , Doom Blade , Beast Within , and Swords to Plowshares

Card draw for the deck you could use is Harmonize , Shamanic Revelation , Beast Whisperer , Painful Truths , and Read the Bones

Going to do one more part for ramp + good stuff

Instead of Overcome, maybe you should put in Overrun. Same cost for more power

You make good points, I suppose Overcome is a bit of a win-more card now that you mention it. I do like the idea of a deck that can go wide or tall depending on the situation, but maybe I’ll move them to the sideboard for now and switch them out for something else (possibly Make a Stand ? Or Unbreakable Formation , I’m not sure which one would be better in this deck).

I feel like 4 Fatal Push and 2 Assassin's Trophy has to be enough removal, although perhaps I’ll change the ratio around. I like Murderous Rider , but I’m not sure he’s what this deck wants, CMC-wise.

Cards like Overcome are awesome in limited environments, but in constructed formats they’re usually incredibly lackluster. In long games, against control and other midrange decks, you’re going to top deck it and wish it was anything else because your board is 1 maybe 2 creatures. Sure- it WILL definitely win you the game, more than once. But it’s what I consider a “win-more” card. It’s sweet when you’re doing what you want the deck to do (make tokens) but when you’re on your back foot and need to recuperate from a Supreme Verdict or an Anger of the Gods or whatever. Not necessarily a board wipe, but lots of decks like to trade 1-1 and can block your tokens all day.

I would replace those with a good card advantage spell like Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord , returning a token making creature or some spot removal like Murderous Rider

Did you mean to make this deck Modern?

Also, Overcome could be replaced by Overrun .

Nice deck though!
