Prey Upon Discussion

The advantage of Nature's way is that it's not a "fight card" your creature takes no damage and it gives trample to creatures with no trample and the vigilance allows you to stay open to block. Prey Upon is better if your dudes already have trample like the Mandrills. Nature's Way would rock with things like Delver that would die in a Prey Upon fight but Nature's Way essentially lets Delver 'bolt' a creature.

Arian_the_Fox, I actually really like how Cryptic Serpent looks. I'll definitely make room for it. As for Nature's Way, the only obvious con with it is that it's two mana as opposed to one with Prey Upon, so I'd have to test with it, because I'm not sure which is better atm. Thanks for the suggestions!

Maybe drop one or both Mystic Snake sense you have other counterspells that work with Delver. Maybe drop to 1 Hooting Mandrills? To make room for 2 things from the ice. Or drop 1 of the Bounding Krasis. Cryptic Serpent is another interesting option. Bigger than Madrills but no trample. I would use Nature's Way instead of Prey Upon personally.

I understand your reasoning regarding the deathtouchers.

I don't think unnatural aggression fits better or worse than any other fight spell. I run Prey Upon and am fairly happy with it.

Interesting to here about ramunap...maybe i should try some.

rolfMTG on Forcefight and Assault Formation; how ...

I have a Thriving Turtle and an Assault Formation on the battlefield. Then (it's my first main phase) I cast Prey Upon, targeting my Thriving Turtle and my opponent's Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons.

Does my Turtle assign 3 damage to the Hapatra?I thought it would, but my opponent said it wouldn't.

Thank you for answering!

Deck looks good. Consider Prey Upon over Pit Fight. Asceticism would definitely be a good add even if only 2 of.

Moonlight Hunt instead of Prey Upon? I know that cost 1 more mana but it is a instant and your creatures won't get hurt in the process.

jonmaiorThe white splash is there for a few reasons, mainly to open up the sideboard to a new colour, which I'm currently working on. As far as the mainboard goes, the difference between Path to Exile and Prey Upon makes the cards incomparable in my opinion, with Path still being among the best removal in the format. Also, I've got plans to work Knight of the Reliquary in as well to grab out Nykthos efficiently.

Dryad Arbor may well make it into the sideboard to counter strategies that use Snapcaster and other graveyard shenanigans, but it's still in the works. Thanks for checking the deck out!
