Prey Upon Discussion

Pelusosa on Spider Tribal

Thinking of potentially reducing the number of Obelisk Spiders and Juvenile Gloomwidows in lieu of more Nyx Weavers, Grisly Salvages, Gather the Packs, and Victimize to capitalize on graveyard shenanigans. Considering swapping Prey Upon and Naturalize for some number of Nature's Ways and Putrefys, although I really like having access to naturalize in casual. Don't know if I should add another one or two Arachnus Webs, if two is enough, or if I should remove them and the Arachnus Spinners entirely. Definitely looking to swap Vivid Grove and a Rootbound Crag for some Savage Lands.

I'm pretty torn about adding Assault Formation, Obelisk of Urd, and Spider Spawning.

Sargeras on $70 Competitive Mono-Green Aggro

It's been a while since I commented here, so I'll give you some advice.

Cut a Treetop Village for one more Forest, curve is needed and treetop is only useful turns 3+ anyway, which really means it's your post wrath plan or the extra kick to win, nothing more.

Since you are in Mono-Green, you are really just trying to goldfish the opponent if you are playing competitively. Which means that i'd personally cut a Dismember, and go for another pump based spell even. you could also go for a Prey Upon or something if you wanted to.

You are stompy, which means you play Steel Leaf Champion over Leatherback Baloth. I know that it is a bit more expensive because of standard, but it is infinitely better. The reasons are becuase it can't be chump blocked by small creatures until the end of time. It runs over Young Pyromancer and Dark Confidant, and it has 5 power, which makes it even easier to get the turn 4 kill this deck wants to have.

Nettle Sentinel seems alright, but you already have decent one-drops to play. I'd consider playing a Rhonas the Indomitable as he's just too good to pass up in this deck.

If you are going to say this deck is great for budget, either include a sideboard that fits the deck, or mention one in the description so people wanting to play it have an idea of what to play.


Revedeka on Totonka's Mono Green Defenders

Hey, I saw you comment on my deck (Tetsuko & Doran's Assault Formation!), and I'd love to see if I can give you any tips for this deck.

As you already said in your description for this deck, Arcades, the Strategist might be a very good card for this deck, especially if you like control decks. White-Green-Blue is a very nice color combination for a control deck, and the defender creatures you are running just add onto that. Furthermore, this deck as it is now can only make your creatures with defender attack if you happen to draw Assault Formation, which means there are gonna be some games were you won't be able to get it. However, you can play around this with your big creatures.

Arcades, the Strategist also lets you draw more cards, which together with Lead the Stampede and your creatures that make mana allow you to build up a very strong board, However, you do already have Soul of the Harvest, which kinda does the same, but just costs 2 more. For that reason, even if you don't play Arcades, the Strategist, I really like your Lead the Stampedes, If you want to stay mono green you could even play something like Commune with Nature to fetch another creature.

If you're wondering what kind of creatures with defender you get access to when also going into blue and white, here are some nice options: Ludevic's Test Subject  Flip can work with your mana ramping, Wall of Frost, Wall of Denial, Stalwart Shield-Bearers, Wall of Omens I really love this card together with your Carven Caryatid and Soul of the Harvest (and Arcades, the Strategist if you want to run it) since it just make you fly through your deck, Dragon's Eye Sentry, Perimeter Captain, and you get access to Rolling Stone, however between Assualt Formation and Arcades, the Strategist, you wont need it. Also you get access to some metagame staples like Path to Exile.

Perhaps a Tower Defense or Shape the Sands (or Aegis of the Heavens (its a new m19 card so tappedout wont let me link it) when playing white) could also make this deck more explosive if you want to go that route, but since you are not reliant on making your creatures with defender attack, Carnage Tyrant is a nice beater, when going into white you also get access to angels which are great late game creatures, you might even think about running card with in their mana costs, like Entreat the Angels, Quarantine Field, Secure the Wastes, Animist's Awakening, Chord of Calling, Enshrined Memories, Genesis Wave, Nissa, Steward of Elements.

Finally, I don't really like Trolls of Tel-Jilad, Terastodon, and Naya Panorama since they don't really do much. I would also up your land count to at least 20, even with all the mana acceleration. Maybe even 22-24. As for your current maybeboard, I like the Axebane Guardian, and all the other card are also good beaters except for Silklash Spider, Prey Upon your defender creatures have no power, even with Assault Formation, not 100% sure on this interaction though, and Elixir of Immortality, If you want lifegain, perhaps a Jaddi Offshoot is better?

I hope this helps you a little! I like the deck and its versatility a lot!

Maybe consider Dragon Throne of Tarkir and Mage Slayer as equipment. I'm also a fan of Siege Behemoth and Archetype of Endurance. Also maybe Prey Upon instead of Pit Fight, I have rubblebelt raider in my tech as well and it does a lot of work. Also maybe worth throwing a Whispersilk Cloak or Key to the City in there as well as a Rogue's Passage

Skyshroud Claim isn't legal in standard, but you could run Grow from the Ashes instead. Blood Feud isn't legal either, but Ancient Animus or Prey Upon are good replacements for it. Lastly, Elvish Visionary isn't legal in standard and running a four of Hallar, the Firefletcher and Grunn, the Lonely King can be clunky sometimes.

I think you should replace Pit Fight with Prey Upon.

I feel these four slots could be better used. Maybe one more Blossoming Defense and Prey Upon and 2 more Forest.

Darth_Savage,Yeah sorry, I wasn't really descriptive with my issues. My main issues are consistency and draw. My only real draw is Garruk, Caller of Beasts. Which generally gets killed via spells. I really like the idea of Domri Rade feel like he would fix the draw issue quite a bit, plus the provided Prey Upon like skill is always nice. Utopia Sprawl could be great for the early game, but what would I remove to make room for that?
