on removing Predator's Rapport
, I know it is a sub-optimal card to have, but in my kitchen-table group I'm with most often, one person runs purphoros and one person runs attrition, the life is very relevant to me, and I occasionally get to reuse it with Tamiyo, the Moon Sage
and Elite Arcanist
. it's very much a meta call and that's good to take note of, I would replace it with something else were I to take it outside of our group or were those decks to stop being played as often, for the moment I'm going to leave it in.
Hornet Queen is something I could definitely replace. a little bit hesitant because I don't have much by way of fliers, and I love having the blockers, but I'll see if I can get a Woodfall Primus and test it out. I could definitely use more removal for noncreature spells. (though to note, I do replay things relatively often off of Boomerang (sometimes with Elite Arcanist ), Conjurer's Closet , and if I have a really good ETB, Progenitor Mimic )
I am very attached to hypnotic siren at the moment. Abduction I don't like giving things back to opponents if it dies, Corrupted Conscience
I don't really like the infect, I would rather have damage to use for my. I've also on occasion placed it on my own creature when Laboratory Maniac
is gone and I need a win, flying is relevant enough that it's useful.
is something I could see replacing. I agree it's often too fragile for me, the only thing I like for it more than Kodama's Reach
is that prophet lets me cast it with flash. probably not relevant enough to let me run a sub-optimal card, thanks for the look and thanks for the advice.
@orionwinterfire, Overwhelming Stampede
seems good, but I'm going to call it either overkill or leaving myself too open (without prophet of kruphix on the field) to someone who I didn't kill. Myojin of Seeing Winds
feels unnecessary. I've rarely had problems with running out of cards, and I don't feel that card necessary to me. Myojin of Life's Web
looks awesome. I'll see if I can find one, and if I can find something to take out for it. it's instant speed too, that is so awesome. I'll look for one. Doubling Season
is way over my budget, and I'm not quite sure it's that good here to begin with. it basically helps zegana and my three planeswalkers. nothing really necessary. Masumaro, First to Live
is a type of card I've been avoiding in this deck. While it /could/ be good, it's a possibly big, trampleless creature, that gets worse if I use the cards I have. It has no utility, no combat evasion, no spell evasion, no recursion, and no card advantage. those cards are flashee but not necessarily good. This deck, and most commander decks, rely on their creatures doing more than just being big. There's too much board wipe and removal going on to use something that's just Large.
Thanks for the comments and recommendations, and thanks for looking at the deck, it's appreciated.
Jarad is one of my favorite commanders. I highly recommend Mossbridge Troll for ginormous jarad bombs. Overwhelming Stampede is also fun for smashing face and then sac-ing for ludicrous damage.btw Sylvan Primordial is banned in commander.
The thing with Overwhelming Stampede is Unless you already have a Wurm token out or something high, it's not going to do a whole lot. It's more situational then Overrun . Also, I'd much rather them destroy a Beastmaster Ascension then a Parallel Lives , Intangible Virtue , and/or Awakening Zone . I put it in there to not only give a push if I need it, but to scare them in to thinking "Destroy THIS PoS!" Collective Blessing is just too high of a cost. I agree with cutting a copy of Entreat. It sits in the hand until I can pop a one-of. And also I have tried running with 4 Parallel Lives and it made the deck clunky more often then not. Thanks for the suggestions.
Love the deck. But Beastmaster Ascension is just too slow to be in here. By the time you get the count to 7 you should be about ready to win anyway. Plus it just sits on the field begging to be destroyed. I suggest you put in Overwhelming Stampede for the win or if you want an enchantment use Collective Blessing as it will work on the turn you put it out. Or you could put in something else to pump out tokens. Another Rootborn Defenses or the versatility of Druid's Deliverance would be great to buy time and also pump out more angels or wurms. Also I playtested it a few times and I think you should cut out an Entreat the Angels . You're just far too likely to get it in your opening hand and it's dead for several turns. Maybe one Parallel Lives as well and you can put in a couple Selesnya Charm . Overall it looks fun though.
Avenger of Zendikar , Garruk's Packleader , & Soul of the Harvest are staples for me in any green deck. You could also get mileage from Primitive Etchings . Myojin of Life's Web and Overwhelming Stampede are fun finishers.
Hey I'm a huge fan of the simic colours especially for EDH I have a deck myself, though that one plays Prime Speaker Zegana as the commander. I'm a little bit confused in terms of how you plan on winning your games many of the creatures you play seems lack luster in my opinion, so I'd like to suggest a few you could consider playing.
Other than that I would probably just play a bit more ramp spells as they could help you get to play your commander sooner and more consistently as he is a major pillar in this deck. +1 though for a cool looking deck.
orionwinterfire good idea! There are more than enough big creatures to make that card very powerful, IMO. I don't want to remove all of BrendiBear's awful cards quite yet, but I agree on Hand of Emrakul not being so hot. I'll swap it out for Overwhelming Stampede .
