Protean Hulk Discussion

LabManiac_Cameron thanks for the reply man. I see why hulk is in, and some of the awkwardness is probably due to me being used to playing a lot more aggressive control. Are you just removing Protean Hulk, Walking Ballista and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed? I play all day at work and would love to try something new.

As for what to do if Past in Flames gets countered, I'd say just run Krosan Reclamation, put Riftsweeper on top, and try to win next turn.

Krosan Reclamation is a pretty standard for HD moments where you're like, "Oh shit, my library's in my graveyard. How do I not die?"

(Or maybe there's a way to win off of Krosan Reclamation without getting back Past in Flames? I can't think of one at this moment.)

If HD is Pithing Needled or otherwise removed, this chain can win:

  1. Protean Hulk + sac outlet, into Dryad Arbor + Hellraiser Goblin + Feldon of the Third Path.
  2. Copy Protean Hulk (requires ) and sac again, into 3 1CMC mana dorks and Combat Celebrant.
  3. Go to combat and exert Combat Celebrant. (Remember that everything not tapped will need to attack, and Hellraiser Goblin needs to survive combat, so 1 opponent has to be open.)
  4. Use your dorks and Feldon to copy Combat Celebrant, go to next combat and exert.
  5. Repeat until you have a lot of Combat Celebrant's. Note that once you have more than two, activating Feldon is unnecessary for infinite combats, so you can reanimate Protean Hulk again to get creatures that will clear away any blockers your opponents might have.

This line is nice because it only requires 2 cards we're not currently using, Feldon of the Third Path and Combat Celebrant, and there's even room to copy Protean Hulk a third time if all of your opponent's have blockers. (It will also generate a ton of extra mana if Thermopod is the sac outlet you grabbed with Eldritch Evolution.)

(And for the record, I wasn't saying Surrak, the Hunt Caller > Hellraiser Goblin, just that him and HD can still win off a conspired Natural Order, and Natural Order seems too go not to include here. I would run both.)

I also feel like a Protean Hulk line would be possible with what we have so far:

From that line, we can use the mana from Dryad Arbor and the dork to activate HD, which will result into the Past in Flames line from graveyard. I will include those for testing purposes in the deck.

No problem, it was just me being drunk. Now that the HD gameplan seems possible, are there any lines you can think off to win on the HD turn?

As for Protean Hulk, what are the targets? I don't think Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker will be part of the lines.

Yes I see now! I will rework it for sure!

With the Hulk Line you inspired, I would really try conspiring Eldritch Evolution, with the first copy grabbing Protean Hulk, sacrificing it with the second one. I am sure we could find some great lines with this.

If you have any more inputs I will for sure take them, as this seems really cool and unexplored

loopsorspool There definitely are problems with the format (Protean Hulk should never have been unbanned if you ask me) but it really isn't just a flip of a coin. It is basically 4 player singleton Vintage/Legacy and because everyone runs so much instant speed interaction and there are 3 players likely to disrupt you if you try to win, it is actually one of the most interesting formats to play. Check out Laboratory Maniacs on youtube if you want to see some gameplay.

Given that you're already running every combo piece except Renegade Rallier, if you add him you'll gain access to another Protean Hulk combo line which is: Hulk death trigger searching for VSeer and Guide/Delver, bringing hulk back to then get Saffi, Blood Artist and another 2 drop (preferably Grand Abolisher as it protects your combo from now on.), then sac Guide/Delver to VSeer whilst saccing Saffi in response to bring Guide/Delver back targeting Hulk to search for Renegade Rallier and 3cmc worth of cards. Once Renegade Rallier etbs you can get back Saffi to then gain infinite death triggers for Blood Artist by saccing Rallier to VSeer and bringing it back on to the battlefield with Saffi infinitely.

If you're running combo having a back up plan is a necessity, Renegade Rallier would interact with the deck as it can reanimate all of your 2cmc> creatures. Grand Abolisher is a must for any combo deck.
