Overwhelming Stampede Discussion
23 hours ago
Hi Guint!! Here are some suggestions I think you could utilize for Ishkanah. So far it looks good!
The things we want to make sure you have in this deck are ways to activate delirium, as well as ways to activate Ish's tribal effects. Let's start with the spiders themselves~
If you can find it I definitely recommend buying a Swarmyard cause what's better than a land that prevents your dudes from dying?
Arachnogenesis Essentially a Fog with an added bonus of giving you a TON of spider tokens. Spider Spawning is also going to be a winner in this deck. Penumbra Spider gives you good value by making another token when it dies. Riptide Replicator is a fun artifact that can make spiders as well... and with all the tokens, a Parallel Lives and Second Harvest would definitely be cards to consider. Also a fan of the underused Parallel Evolution - it even has Flashback! Swarm them with tokens and then drop a Pathbreaker Ibex, Decimator of the Provinces or the ever coveted Craterhoof Behemoth... or you can go the route of Overwhelming Stampede.
Silklash Spider would be a good powerhouse to pick up. It's effect can kill off any flier on the board.
There aren't any other specific "spiders" that are noteworthy, but there are always shapeshifters. My favorite "spiders" are Metallic Mimic and Chameleon Colossus Alternatively you can get a Conspiracy and just make your whole deck into spiders. Then when they all die bring them back with Patriarch's Bidding.
Spiders have especially large butts on them, so Assault Formation can really be powerful. Things that benefit from the high toughness of spiders should also be up for consideration. Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper, Abzan Beastmaster, Grim Contest, and Kin-Tree Invocation are ones that come to mind immediately.
For a more tribal feel I def recommend trying out Archetype of Endurance and Archetype of Finality as well as Brawn and Filth. Bow of Nylea could be used as an alternative to Archetype of Finality if you so choose. There are also tribal artifacts such as Coat of Arms, Urza's Incubator, Obelisk of Urd and Door of Destinies.
Now onto the Delirium Mechanic. Making sure your own cards into the graveyard can seem counterproductive but a lot of things benefit from it. So first, how do we self mill?
- Deadbridge Chant is a personal favorite. Satyr Wayfinder, Crop Sigil, Grisly Salvage, Mulch, Grapple with the Past, Commune with the Gods, Benefaction of Rhonas, Sudden Reclamation. Stinkweed Imp or anything with Dredge. Golgari Grave-Troll is a popular one.
Now for some super fun cards that benefit from a graveyard presence.
- Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Lord of Extinction, Deathcap Cultivator, Deathrite Shaman, Traverse the Ulvenwald, Splendid Reclamation, and Meren of Clan Nel Toth. Did you mill a bunch of great cards you want back? Recursion is also a super powerful strategy. Eternal Witness is a Green staple for a reason. Greenwarden of Murasa, Seasons Past, Treasured Find, Animate Dead, Victimize. Sometimes you want to put specific things into the graveyard to fetch with recursion cards, so Entomb, Jarad's Orders, and Buried Alive become like tutors in a sense.
Now lets talk about Black and Green as colors in EDH. Black/Green has a few things that it needs to run undoubtedly. One of its major problems is card draw, so you're definitely going to want to auto-include Harmonize and Phyrexian Arena. I would also consider Lifecrafter's Bestiary.
Removal: Putrefy, Murder, Hero's Downfall, Abrupt Decay, Krosan Grip, Golgari Charm, Toxic Deluge, In Garruk's Wake, Acidic Slime, Beast Within. Dictate of Erebos to be used in conjunction with a sacrifice outlet like Ashnod's Altar (sac your extra tokens for mana!)
Ramp: Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Solemn Simulacrum, Sol Ring, Explosive Vegetation, Thran Dynamo, Commander's Sphere, Golgari Signet, Cryptolith Rite, Harrow, Crop Rotation, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Yavimaya Elder.
The only other thing I want to say about your deck is that you should probably up your land count to at least 36. 30 is usually too little for most EDH decks in my experience. Unless you're going super aggro, you'll find yourself short on a lot of land drops.
If you wanted to upgrade your lands, here are some relatively inexpensive things you could add:
Golgari Rot Farm, Command Tower, Jungle Hollow, Temple of Malady, Woodland Cemetery, Overgrown Tomb, Llanowar Wastes, Tainted Wood, Grim Backwoods, Bojuka Bog, Hissing Quagmire, Temple of the False God, Drownyard Temple, Ghost Quarter, and any lands that Cycle in your colors :)

Thank you for the feedback I really appreciate it.
Overrun is a good card that I had not considered and I only used Zendikar's Roil because it helped fill my 5 cmc spot and it works well with my plans of getting lands out. But I agree it is too slow, in fact I think that Overwhelming Stampede might be better and will trade it in.
I am using Harvest Season because I thought it was a cool new card and I am still on the fence on whether it is good in this deck or not. I will playtest more and see if I just need to trade it out for Cultivate and if I end up doing that I would like to find a spot for Explore so I could play the second land and it just looks like it would work well in this deck.
My meta is pretty slow and a little less aggro so I am slightly comfortable with the amount of mana dorks I have (for now).
Doing more playtesting but so far:
+1 Arbor Elf

@Unlife, I sadly don't own a copy of Skittles but he's on my list of things I really want to trade for. But thanks so much for the advice! I'm going to take out Triumph of the Hordes and move it over to my Gahiji tokens deck then replace it with Overwhelming Stampede. Definitely going to snag copies of of the infect givers as well. Thanks again!

Nice deck +1! Gyre Sage + Increasing Savagery tons of mana. Overwhelming Stampede nice finisher. Cultivate is another good card forma ramp,Summoning Trap is another good card. You seems a grren lover so what do you think about my hydra deck? Hydra's Menace

KingMathoro, all three cards would make great additions. Though I am leaning more towards adding Craterhoof Behemoth back into the deck over Overwhelming Stampede. As for Triumph of the Hordes, this has been a card I have been putting much thought into adding. How I see it while paired with Omnath and his loyal subjects... gg! I think I could replace Ashnod's Altar with your recommendation of Altar of Dementia. Milling out an opponent while another takes the bolts is like taking out two birds with one stone, I like. Thank you for your support on my claim to the throne of king a$$hole.

Have you thought about running things like Overwhelming Stampede, Triumph of the Hordes, Altar of Dementia in the deck? The first two do not need any explanation but Altar is fun because you can mill someone out and also something you may find interesting is that if Omnath has infect when he bolts things he bolts with infect. Which to me just seems silly for the throne of king a$$hole. What do you think?

I'm impressed! Maybe Overwhelming Stampede is better then Ovverun?

One lovely synergy in my Selvala, Heart of the Wilds deck is her plus Dragon Throne of Tarkir + Primordial Hydra or Heroes' Bane. Sure, my huge hydra gets turned into a doorstop, but that cannot be said about my other creatures. This same combo can also be used when I want to turn around from ramping to attacking. It gets even better with Pathbreaker Ibex and Overwhelming Stampede or Triumph of the Hordes. You can probably try it out and see how it goes.
You also can try out Mana Reflection, Heartbeat of Spring, Caged Sun, Dictate of Karametra, Zendikar Resurgent, anything that adds to forest mana output, if you don't want to risk getting it Return to Dusted or Krosan Griped.
