Enemyinsid3 on Kitchen table deck help?

1 week ago

this is the deck I need help with.I just wanna make it better. It was loosely based on managorger hydra back in Origins.

Thanks for the comment. This is a go wide deck that is sorta token-ish, which is why I originally had it in here. Alongside the two creatures you mentioned the enchantment plays well with Rampaging Baloths, Garruk Wildspeaker, Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter, Arachnogenesis and Wolfbriar Elemental, not to mention the fact that Nacatl War-Pride + Parallel Lives basically says "eliminate target player". That being said, it is a bit of an awkward card in this deck and probably will be taken out eventually.

I have been considering Bane of Progress, but I already pack 8 other ways (3 of them are mass removal) to interact with problematic artifacts and enchantments so I was hesitent to add another.

Primeval Bounty is one of those trap commander cards IMO. It seems really good on paper, but never performs well in real life.

I have been considering some haste enablers like Concordant Crossroads, or additional land animators like Natural Affinity, or including Nissa, Worldwaker in the list as they all promote my deck theme. I just need to figure out how hard I want to go into beating down with lands (which this is pretty hard I guess haha)

Hey Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor,

Cool deck. Not a green player by nature (pun intended) but playing fatties is always fun, right?

I don't really see why Parallel Lives is in there. It works well with Avenger of Zendikar and Hornet Queen but that's about it... I'd switch it for Bane of Progress or Primeval Bounty if I were you ;)

can I recommend Nissa, Worldwaker over Nissa, Vital Force? the ability to get out all your lands makes an army. it doubles with Rampaging Baloths and synergies with Courser of Kruphix, Tireless Tracker, and Primeval Bounty. I wont lie, I love decks like this because they do stupid shit that's completely unexpected. also, Life's Legacy is a way to keep things going.

Thank you for your patience, telling people to "optimize their fun" tends to (understandably) cause annoyance. It's interesting to hear that Mystic Barrier can be used with the commander as situational utility without compromising overall entertainment

As a side note, if anyone else wants to use the Mana Echoes idea, then I should probably point out that I forgot about the obvious mana sink/mana preserver Gemstone Array (there's also Upwelling I guess but that one seems more group hug:ish, with the typical risk of producing degenerate play when coming into contact with the wrong kind of opposing deck). Similarly, Primeval Bounty would probably work as a fun Academy Rector target if anyone wants to try making the aforementioned "3 or greater power" build.

That's going to be a hard stretch to make sure you hit that extra land for Primeval Bounty. Should look at adding in a few extra lands

Primeval Bounty and Elemental Bond would fit nicely. If you are afraid of your creatures being targeted, or your enchantments getting blown up, there is Privileged Position, Wild Ricochet, and Not of This World to consider.
