Pheardemons on Does this interaction work with ...

So let's say that I sacrifice Protean Hulk, and search my library for Essence of the Wild, and multiple creatures with zero CMC and toughness such as Phyrexian Marauder, Shifting Wall, and Endless One.

Do all of the zero CMC creatures die when they enter the battlefield, or do they enter the battlefield as a copy of Essence of the Wild? I understand that they all enter the battlefield at the same time, I just don't know if they die because Essence of the Wild wasn't on the battlefield first (due to a state-based action of zero toughness), or if they enter as copies.

Hi! Great deck! Tough one for me!

What I like:

Your love of Ad Nauseam.

Good lord that curve is beauuuutiful.

Some suggestions to put in:

Noble Hierarch I'm sure you know about. Just an expensive upgrade :)

Protean Hulk could help fetch some of your combo creatures. Wacks your curve though.

Chromatic Lantern is necessary I feel for extra consistency.

And some to take out:

Avacyn's Pilgrim if you put in the Hierarch.

Carpet of Flowers may be here because you have a lot of blue player in the meta, but it seems like more of a sideboard card.

Otherwise... looks sweet. Hope some of this helps!

rockleemyhero on Your most fun cEDH lists

1 week ago

Hey! I play almost exclusively cEDH. Nice to see cEDH get a mention and some tread on t/o. Here are my current decks if you're looking for something new.

  1. My pride and joy Rafiq deck. This deck loves to get under people's skin by winning through combat damage and going for the long game. I've spent about 7 or 8 years tweaking this deck or starting over from the base up literally hundreds of times. It's an obsession and this is my best list to date results wise. Very fun and challenging to play; it requires minimal errors on your part and attempting to knife into your opponents by hitting them in their most critical weak spots. Can really punish greedy decks with a well timed stax piece or counterspell. Essentially plays as a control deck that shifts into a tempo deck once you land an engine like Cold-Eyed Selkie. Think of a hybrid between rashmi control and edric turns.

  2. My take on the infamous blood pod deck of recent popularity. However, this deck is unique in the sense that it plays Sneak Attack and Protean Hulk lines. At it's heart it is an adaptive combo deck that can win out of nowhere as soon as t3. It can easily grind out opponents with tymna and a plethora of stax pieces you can easily work around as well. It utilizes a layered combo system that ultimately wins of a kiki-jiki combo with Grand Abolisher protection and/or with Zulaport Cutthroat without combat damage!

  3. It's boring, predictable, and easy mode (for you). Just a run of the mill Kess deck. Runs storm lines, high tide lines, and control options to make Kess stand out in light of her heavily debated twin, Jeleva. Pretty standard list though for when I want to feel like a villian. Usual broken cEDH MVPs ad nauseum and Yawgmoth's Will.

Why do you play Spellskite over Grand Abolisher in your Protean Hulk combo loop? Wouldn't the latter be way better?

Yeah it would really be great. In a deck that never ever hardcasts Protean Hulk or a deck like my Braids, the bitter hugger deck where I don't pay for cards ideally, cmc as it is makes no sense. Oh well, tappedout is awesome as it is, so I probably really shouldn't complain xD

You can also add Protean Hulk, having an instant kill with Kiki Jiki and Karmic Guide, and maybe Tangle Wire for a bit of stax effect.

wipperwhill123 on Scion Druid Win

3 weeks ago

As a Druid player, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon is a late-game finisher. You cast Scion of the Ur-Dragon, use his ability twice to get Moltensteel Dragon (pump +6/+0 with 12 life), then get Skittles. This makes Scion a 10/4 flying infect. Protean Hulk requires too many cards that don't do anything without the hulk himself, and you'd rather just tutor for Hermit Druid. I took Cephalid Illusionist out because my version doesn't play enough creatures to support the combo, and rather just play more ways to get hermy back if it dies (would highly recommend Claim / Fame). Necrotic Ooze doesn't need haste because Devoted Druid, Morselhoarder, and Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind don't need to tap to make infinite mana. To answer my own question from a lot earlier, Caustic Caterpillar is good if you topdeck a creature tutor and have to kill a Leyline of the Void or something.
