Patron of the Orochi Discussion

Kassu01 on Sasaya, Orochi Ascendant Combo (EDH)

4 weeks ago

Hi, I too play a Sasaya-deck of my own. Would suggest the Patron of the Orochi + Temur Sabertooth-combo, with Sasaya, Orochi Ascendant flipped and atleast 4 lands on the battlefield and a haste outlet it will generate infinite mana. Better, with 5 lands and Tooth and Nail in your hand + haste you can tutor the combo straight onto the battlefield. Then you can use the mana (for exaple) to make a infinite Genesis Wave. And fore more haste Concordant Crossroads could do the job. Here's a link to my own deck Go Big or Go Home!. Hope this was helpful.

Awoken_Leviathan on A Band of Legends

NV_1980, Thanks for the suggestions, they're very helpful.

The reason I have 40 Lands is because I usually try to run around 38 and then there's the 2 band lands that, despite being lands and taking up my drops, don't tap for mana. That being said I guess if I remove some lands and replace them with ramp it will hopefully balance out.

The Untaps were very helpful since I was unaware that those existed in green apart from the Patron of the Orochi and will most definitely include them as well as the Greaves and Boots because I somehow managed to forget haste exists.

My one concern is in using creatures that I can't tutor with Sisay and therefore have to rely on drawing in order to come into. I have to look to find more creatures with similar effects in order to make it more than a 2 or 3 in 100 chance of getting it out and then replace some of the creatures that I already have.

Everything was very insightful, thank you.

KingMathoro on Omnath, Locus of Mana

Hey there, I was just browsing and saw this in the help thread and thought I would offer my two cents as I have much experience with Omnath. First of all lemme say that it does not seem like you have any sure fire way to end the game. Siege Behemoth seems to be the only way. So I would look at cards like Triumph of the Hordes, Overwhelming Stampede, Kamahl, Fist of Krosa, Craterhoof Behemoth, Pathbreaker Ibex, Blightsteel Colossus, and also maybe an Eldrazi Titan or three. Some other great ramp cards that are out there are Traverse the Outlands and Patron of the Orochi Along with that I would say you may want to consider some removal spells like Krosan Grip, Beast Within, Song of the Dryads. Another couple of cards you may want to think about is protection for Omnath and also maybe a way or two to make him unblockable. These would be cards like Swiftfoot Boots, Darksteel Plate, Whispersilk Cloak, Lightning Greaves, Key to the City, Rogue's Passage and the like. Also since you have an Extraplanar Lens you could run Snow-Covered Forests instead of regular to deny any other person playing green the doubling affect. Lastly there is a card that does well in every Omnath deck ever and that is Genesis Wave. My God I can't even begin to tell you how great this card is in this deck. Those are my thoughts as of now. Tell me what you think!

looks like a super nice deck what about adding a Patron of the Orochi

Seshiro the Anointed and Patron of the Orochi are worth considering for decks like these, but depending on your budget they might be out of reach.

Selvala's Stampede Flavor card and still good card for deck

Krosan Grip If you run green in edh you should probably take advantage of enchantment removal

Throne of the God-Pharaoh Beastly late card game that will drain your opponents life.

Burgeoning Dump all your lands out quick and get high ramp early

Pathbreaker Ibex generally if you have a 6/6 and up and you got enough creatures should be a good win con for a deck like this

Beastmaster Ascension swing in with big dudes one turn make them even bigger

Overwhelming Stampede and Overrun are great cards to beefing up your creatures and swing for the win

Rishkar's Expertise This isnt a really needed card but it can help. Up to you

Siege Behemoth having big creatures that can overcome blocking is one thing. but having that source constant and unable to be targeted...goodnight

Elvish Piper freecasting any big creature for 1 mana is awesome. I know the card is pricy but if you want a really good investment this is one

Wild Pair A great midrange/lategame tutor for creatures

Managorger Hydra May not seem like much at first. But give this guy 5 turns in a 4 player game. He becomes a big threat very quick

Oran-Rief, the Vastwood

If you are thinking about going over $200 later on here are some ideas

Defense of the Heart this is one of my favorite cards to play in mono green decks. If you are going up an aggro deck like goblins and you throw this out, you get your 2 best creatures and play them for free

Worldly Tutor 1 mana creature tutor. Need i say more?

Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger Double your mana, restrict opponent mana

Patron of the Orochi Untapping all your creatures and forests for a 2nd main or defense

Extraplanar Lens Caged Sun both good for ramp

Primeval Titan 6/6 with trample that tutors for 2 forests when it enters/attacks

I really hope that this list will strongly help you. I would suggest that you exchange your forests for other lands that will benefit more but if you do not have the budget, it still works.

Besides what i added, I can not really think of what else you will want off the top of my head. If you wanna ask for more help feel free to contact me.

Other than that good deck for its price +1

AnonymousNinja7 on Shizuko, Better than Omnath

3 months ago

Thanks for your comment, and your deck looks awesome!I haven't used Scrying Sheets because I have enough ways to get large numbers of lands, and I just wouldn't use the activated ability hardly ever. so it would just end up being a land that doesnt produce green, and doesnt benefit from Vernal Bloom , Gauntlet of Power , Patron of the Orochi , and Extraplanar Lens
