Prey Upon Discussion

Here's some suggestions for some cuts or swaps.

Mayor of Avabruck  Flip is really not worth it imo, since its front side is basically useless in this deck and getting it to transform and stay transformed is way too much effort in a multiplayer commander game. You're also not getting that much out of him that you don't already get out of other cards in the deck.

Pledge of Unity and Common Bond also don't seem that great to me. I'd much rather add more anthems or stuff like Metallic Mimic than just one time counter distribution.

You can probably also cut Prey Upon , since your wolves will do enough fighting anyway.

You could consider cutting Growing Ranks . It's too slow of an enchantment imo.

Finally, here's some swaps I could recommend.

Avacyn's Pilgrim => Paradise Druid

It's 1 mana more but provides better fixing and is also an elf which you can champion with Wren's Run Packmaster

Emmara Tandris => Vigor

Why prevent damage when you can let your creatures take the damage and let them grow bigger from it?

Thanks for the advice, Gattison! I think that I will switch out Unnatural Aggression for either Prey Upon or Rabid Bite , since the exile part isn't necessarily too important, since I have cards with ingest. My main goal with this deck is essentially to create scion tokens to play more creatures or larger creatures, which I can swing with to win. In my opinion, the ingest mechanic is almost like a bonus in my deck; since I'll be swinging anyways, I might as well exile some cards while I'm at it. I can then use those cards if I need to by using Oracle of Dust to cycle through my deck for the larger creatures, or with Ruin Processor to gain life if I'm running low. As far as running other eldrazi cards, I just made this deck with cards that are already in my collection, so I don't have a lot of selection to choose from. I think I also will switch out Titanic Growth for Giant Growth , if I have enough copies.

As far as generating , I can actually generate with the scion tokens and Kozilek's Channeler . The reason that they do not have the symbol is because it was introduced in OGW, and these cards came out in BFZ. The rules for such cards have since been adjusted at accommodate for cards like these; for example, if you check out the tokens or Kozilek's Channeler on the Gatherer, you will see that they produce instead of generic, just as Sol Ring produces instead of generic now.

I appreciate your feedback and suggestions! I'll get to test it tonight hopefully, so we'll see how it runs!

Prey Upon or Rabid Bite are cheaper versions of Unnatural Aggression , but Ancient Animus is an instant-speed version. None of them exile upon resolution, but I don't know how much you're focusing on "ingesting/processing" with this deck. You might be better off replacing all the processing stuff with more basic eldrazi stuff. I've attempted several processor builds before (in pauper and in Standard) and it always seems very build-around-me to me, so I'd be interested in your thoughts on this. Does processing distract your deck at all?

Also, you have no way to generate currently, so Kozilek's Pathfinder cannot be activated. Try Crumbling Vestige in place of Evolving Wilds maybe? It generates a colored mana as you play it, and then colorless afterwards.

Finally, Giant Growth is a cheaper Titanic Growth which you may or may not need.

Something to think about, Rhonas is indestructible, and has deathtouch. Rhonas will win any fight he's in. maybe add some Prey Upon effects?

Since your deck is so focused on +1 counters, I would recommend Mutant's Prey over Prey Upon . It's conditional, but in my experience the instant speed is more than worth it for a +1-counter-centric deck.

I would suggest dropping Silence for a playset of Path to Exile . You could also look at Dromoka's Command instead of Prey Upon . Heroic Intervention / Blossoming Defense could offer gc good protection. If would put one of those in instead of Make a Stand . Collected Company Is always a win in these kind of decks. Not sure what you would take out tho.

Even though this is probably bylbyiluilt with cards you have, I'd a card is a placeholder for something while you obtain it, it is better just to put in the card you want into the Tappedout deck. It makes it easier for people to give yu you advice.
