Predator's Strike Discussion

Sculpted the deck a bit based on suggestions. Thanks btw. :) Still wondering about options for countering, creatures ( Blight Mamba , Phyrexian Crusader , Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon , Ichorclaw Myr , etc.), protecting the creatures ( Dive Down , Mizzium Skin , etc.), penetration ( Artful Dodge , etc.), boost ( Larger Than Life , Predator's Strike , more Vines of Vastwood , etc.), mana base, etc. Sideboard needs overhaul too. Phew!

@mal099 Thank you for your suggestions! :)

Actually, I've never thought of using any of those "block me instead" kind of creatures. I put together this list thinking that I'd either win in the first three turns, or scoop, haha.

I'm fond of Seal of Strength because I don't need to enchant a creature, but I'll think about adding Briar Shield in. I thought about adding Phytoburst or even a single Become Immense but I feel that the trample from something like Predator's Strike would be much more flexible.

Not sure how I feel about revealing my hand, but I do like the idea of having stuff like Scent of Ivy and Land Grant though.

Oh, and Invigorate is in the Maybeboard because it isn't Pauper legal. I feel that if it was, then Infect would have pretty broken and consistent T2 wins. But certainly, Giant Growth would get dropped for those in casual play. ;D

Have you thought about using creatures like Taunting Elf and Shinen of Life's Roar to make sure your other creatures don't get blocked? They're not as fast, but would make sure all your creatures get through, instead of just one. Which option is better probably depends a lot on your playstyle.

Phytoburst , Briar Shield (seems almost strictly better than Seal of Strength ) and Scent of Ivy might be good buffs for this deck. Maybe Aspect of Hydra too, but I feel like it would generally be weaker than it alternatives. Potentially some Trample, like Larger Than Life or Predator's Strike if you feel like your damage isn't getting through.

Here are some cuts you can consider:

All the cards I mentioned above in EDH doesn't make too much of an impact and not good enough in a multiplayer game. I saw a lot of pump cards but the thing is once you use it will be over, in a 1v1 situation those cards can be considered but you are going for a multiplayer game, so you want to have longer lasting effects or worldly buffs than single shot pumps.

You can start by trimming out those cards first, and also changing the mana base a bit as 30 lands it fairly low for a deck thats not akin to storm or combo, you can up it to at least 34-36 lands, I would say 36 for now until you start refining the deck.

Hope that helps!

Seems a nice deck, but I'd make some suggestions:

First of all I'd add Fatal Push. It's very usefull when you want to remove an annoying opponent's creature. Probably I'd put it instead of Reaper from the Abyss, since it's true that the reaper is a creature that does good things, but it costs really much.

I don't really like Bone Picker and Savra, Queen of the Golgari since you don't have so many chances to cast the picker in the first turns and you don't sacrifice creatures, which makes the queen useless

Cards you could consider are: Bitterblossom, Basilica Screecher, Beckon Apparition, Daggerdrome Imp, Gurmag Swiftwing, Kitesail Freebooter, Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize, Ravenous Chupacabra

I understand why Awaken the Bear and Unnatural Predation are there (you want trample creatures). But aren't better Rancor, Vines of Vastwood or Predator's Strike?

Last thing: I'd add more Overgrown Tomb (raising it up to 3x) and 4x of Verdant Catacombs

Hi! A bit worried about blockers chumping/killing your peeps. I looked up trample/unblockable enchantments/instants/sorceries, and these are some ideas: /// For trample + pump, Predator's Strike looks nice for this deck, as does Larger Than Life /// Artful Dodge, Distortion Strike, and Writ of Passage give unblockable and recur. Writ of passage is especially nice as you can pump your peeps after you make them unblockable /// Vitality Charm is a strictly better unnatural predation, as far as I can tell. /// Talons of Wildwood is like a crappy rancor, but for a price you can recur it

In my opinion, Larger Than Life is better than Predator's Strike. It gives +4/+4 and trample rather than +3/+3 and trample, but it's a sorcery.
