Weekend_Magic_NC on Cut/Add recommendations

2 weeks ago

I'm currently working on a Kresh the Bloodbraided deck Special K. There's a few cards I'd like to throw in the mix. I'm thinking I'd like Sneak Attack, Bearer of the Heavens, Burning Anger, Hydra's Growth, Praetor's Counsel, and possibly Fungal Sprouting. But the major concerns I have are: messing up any synergy I currently have, and figuring out proper cuts. Anyway, any help is appreciated.

To be fair, Forbid is not a 3-for-1 because you get to keep Forbid in hand. I play this in a lot of my blue decks and it is usually really worth pitching 2 lands for an important spell. It can be very demoralizing for opponents when you have a huge hand to play with as well.

Praetor's Counsel is a great card to have that also gives you no max hand size.

Into the Wilds seems really weak for the deck. only getting one trigger just doesn't seem impactful enough for you.

Abundance could be really good in your deck to help you get whatever it is you need, land or otherwise. You can really cycle through your deck with draw spells and this.

Harvest Season can allow you to have some incredible combo turns in conjunction with something like Avenger of Zendikar, a bit like Boundless Realms.

Gush is a really strong draw spell for your deck.

Praetor's Counsel is pretty hot too if you just want a big turn.

CommanderPatsy: Well, boardwipes are just one of the reasons we DO play Yeva. Since we play at instant speed, we never really over commit on our board. We are usually establishing the board at points where most major wipes can't hit us. The deck as it stands has 3 pieces of recursion and it's really all the deck needs. As Soren841 said, Praetor's Counsel is just not good, it costs way too much for a pretty irrelevant effect. If wipes are truly that much of an issue in your meta, you could consider Heroic Intervention .

@Profet93, Praetor's Counsel is in the deck. And the last thing you said too. The deck is packed full of so much value creatures that draw is better than recurring a good creature. I like the idea off adding Eternal Witness since I can fetch it out with Woodland Bellower . Also Seasons Past was another one of those cards I strongly considered putting in the deck.

You make a case for Greater Good . I will see what cut to make for it. The problem is with that is there is some balance required between having enough scary creatures and resources for removal and resilience. Ohran Frostfang is a really good card and The Great Henge is too and I also need to find a spot for that as well

The point I'm saying is. It's getting real hard to choose what to cut for some of these cards. All while keeping that balance
