Overgrown Battlement Discussion

Icbrgr on Tron Wurms

3 weeks ago

No problem! I think on its face Quicksilver Amulet is probably better than Dramatic Entrance. My only insight to advocate for dramatic entrance would be because the artifact/activated abilities hate being sideboarded in game two when the opponent brings in Pithing Needle/Abrade.... dramatic entrance can also just be straight up counter-bait.... when the opponent sees dramatic entrance they will counter it if they can, but if your gonna amass the mana to cast the wurm anyway then they will likely just run out of counters.. at least that's why I use it.

Somthing else to consider if aggro is problematic in conjunction with Elderscale Wurm maybe instead of Tron Lands/Urza's Tower ect ect. Would be using Defender Ramp with Axebane Guardian/Overgrown Battlement, Wall of Blossoms, Wall of Roots, Carven Caryatid... granted this completely warps the deck into something else entirely but I figured I'd mention it.

Good luck with the brew!

I think you all make good points... the best case scenario I can from the hip think of is a path to an off-brand/mono green Valakut deck.

Maybe supplemental ramp and cantrips to help the way with Overgrown Battlement and Wall of Blossoms & Carven Caryatid as some filler with Sheltering Word ?

I dont think that this would be any better or more reliable than already established Titan-Shift though.... but its certainly neat to think about!

exalted_k1d | Before I start, fine suggestions all round! Thank you! | Show and Tell , Academy Rector and Omniscience . | Now these are some spicy cards and the Rector into Omni is a spicy combo, Show Tell is a little questionable due to the advantage you're giving to your opponents however. If anything, I'd want Rector in just for the immediate value if he gets removed, Omniscience is sort of a dead draw in a late game situation where I'm looking for a combo piece.

If anything, I'd be putting Rector in, now how do I remove him...?

| Sensei's Divining Top and Sylvan Library . Actually these pieces and Scroll Rack would all be good for the deck in their various ways, I simply haven't picked them up yet! Those price points are a big factor when it comes to me affording other things like my rent, or food, or general living.

Sensei's Top specifically is a little underpowered to contest with the amount of card draw in the deck, so I'll be passing over it.

| Countermagic. Just a personal gripe? Not too into it all. I play a 1 of Counterspell until I can get my hands on a Mana Drain or a Force of Will and that's it. I even took out my Dovin's Veto for some more tutoring, I just don't like control playing at all. I know this severely 'depowers' my gameplan with far less disruption interaction, but in my current meta, not much is actually being played either - helpfully!

Thank you for the suggestions!

Metachemist | My opinions on Chulane, Teller of Tales is that he's drew back by his need for the spell to be cast and not simply cheated into play to get a draw. This turns off some of the flicker effects with Brago, King Eternal , but synergises well with the many bounce effects from things such as Jeskai Barricade and Shrieking Drake . I would probably also have to change up many of my creatures from defenders to other things, due to the fact that without Arcades, the Strategist they have little to no viable combat potential outside of having out specific 'defenders attack' cards, which makes some of my very unique mana creatures such as Axebane Guardian and Overgrown Battlement left with no viable replacement.

He can however facilitate a Bouncegine (Bounce engine) with Intruder Alarm out, so it's a good thought!

Roon of the Hidden Realm seems cool! A little expensive and outclassed by other cards at this point but he has his place. His effect can't really be helpfully combo'd as you can only do it on the same creature once per turn, however.

| Alternate Win Cons. I was actually thinking about Blue Sun's Zenith as a trade in for Pull from Tomorrow . Although it costs 1 CMC more, it can target opponents. After you clear out your library into your hand it'll also be the only card you draw, so after setting up a Flengine (Flicker Engine) or Bouncegine you can draw the card after shuffling it back and cast it again for 6000 on your next opponent. Still questioning this however.

Finale of Devastation seems utterly devastating and I'd probably be running it if I had it. Big stompy crater boy would only seal the deal but he seems a little out of place? I'd just Finale for X=14000 and swing in for massive hits. The trample trick however is helpful.

On the topic of Lab Man and Jace, they just seem a little overplayed. if I draw out my entire library I should be winning regardless - might as well do it in a flashy 'royal flush' way as opposed to a trashy 'ace-high' way.

Again, fantastic comments and helpful insight, will be amping up the Maybeboard shortly. Thank you!

Funkydiscogod on Targets for Dramatic Entrance

Empyrial Archangel can be difficult to deal with for decks that can't do at least 8 damage in a single turn. Might be better in the sideboard?

Chancellor of the Tangle can pull double duty as a target, and letting you drop Overgrown Battlement or Wall of Roots a turn earlier.

Icbrgr on Targets for Dramatic Entrance

Currently brewing a mono-green ramp deck using Overgrown Battlement and am looking to use Dramatic Entrance as support/backup.

Does anyone have any thoughts on good/relevant targets for Dramatic Entrance?

So far I'm considering:

BobbyBlue on The Best Offense Is A Good Defense?

I love defender decks.

Have you considered Overgrown Battlement and Doorkeeper ? Overgrown Battlement is kind of a second Axebane Guardian although not quite as good, while Doorkeeper can potentially give you a secondary win condition in a long game.

Fortified Area would be great, allowing you to block much more safely.

Wall of Stolen Identity and perhaps Mindbender Spores could be good utility as well to stop/discourage opponents from attacking you with their scary creatures in the first place.

I'd even consider Wall of Shards - in multiplayer you can spread the health around or give it all to one player who either really needs it or whose good side you want to get on. Could be an interesting tool in that regard. And considering how hard those walls can fall on people once you get Arcades, the Strategist , High Alert or Assault Formation out, a bit of extra life can be gotten around (unless it's been sitting there for like 20+ turns, at which point you could probably just win with Doorkeeper).

I'd say you probably want to take out of Wall of Reverence , though. I could be wrong, but I haven't seen anything in this deck that actually synergises with the power-based life gain.

subject19 on Balls to the walls

lagotripha Oh yeah, I totally forgot that Wall of Blossoms had been printed. That one should be included for sure, probably instead of Carven Caryatid and maybe also some number of Wall of Omens or Axebane Guardian . Vesperlark is good, but I am a bit concerned that it is not a wall. Overgrown Battlement is such a powerful ramp card, and I really want to minimize the number of creatures that are not walls to utilize it. Spellskite is included because it can counter some decks and works really well with Assault Formation , but Vesperlark only has one toughness. It does return a wall though, given that there is one in the graveyard.
