Questing Beast

Questing Beast

Legendary Creature — Beast

Vigilance, deathtouch, haste

Questing Beast can't be blocked by creatures with power 2 or less.

Combat damage that would be dealt by creatures you control can't be prevented.

Whenever Questing Beast deals combat damage to an opponent, it deals that much damage to target planeswalker that player controls.

Tried to tilt it more towards aggro by -



This iteration might be better than the more grindy Vivien one. The problem then is the atrocious manabase, which isn't optimal for an aggro deck.

Believe me when I say this DanMcSharp, but I had actually included them, and Questing Beast, in earlier iterations of this deck. Some worked, most didn't, but this deck here is the one that worked the best (or it was the most consistent, one of the two). I will tell you though, that it hurt removing those cards from the deck, especially Questing Beast as it's a staple of pretty much every green deck. If you want to see if you can switch up some cards and make it better, please do. I would love to see this deck grow from other peoples' perspectives and experience. In the end, after more playtesting, they may or may not be included. The future is ever-changing after all. Thank you again for the suggestions.

FSims81, you're right, and all three of Questing Beast's heads are smirking at Lukka (as Sublime Epiphany urges them both to keep an open mind!). I guess it's mostly that I don't like walls of text. I get that they need to happen sometimes, and on this it's just fine, as it only really does one thing. You should still just make it indestructible if it exiles something indestructible tho.

Garruk's Uprising has been one of my favorite new cards in a while. At 3 mana it comes down early, and can draw you a card immediately as long as you have a beater out which makes it good at any stage of the game. Then it gives you that incremental value that plays with your big guys pretty well since they're all HUGE. All that and the fact it also gives trample is almost too easy to include. Basically a strictly better Elemental Bond and it's been really good for me.

On another note, I agree with you about Warstorm Surge. I've always found it to be a little too slow for my tastes and I always would rather just play a big beater to be honest. Terror of the Peaks has been such an overperformer since I decided to put it in, and I'm seriously considering dropping warstorm for something like Defense of the Heart.

Elder Gargaroth is another one that's been really fun to play around with. I'm almost thinking it would be a better Soul of the Harvest. I'm a sucker for drawing cards, and Gargaroth is super busted, especially when you double its power and give it haste. Basically guarantees that you at least get to attack and draw when you first play it, and that it's big enough that it's unlikely to die to blockers unless your opponents want to go out of their way to kill it. The other effects are just gravy, and the fact that it can draw when it attacks or blocks, AND has vigilance makes this thing another wall of text like Kogla, the Titan Ape and Questing Beast.

Grothama, All-Devouring is a fun include, cause it can be sort of political if you need it to be, or just a 20/18 beatstick. I normally treat it as a draw spell for myself though. You can play her, pump one of your other creatures, and swing it at Grothama to draw a crazy amount or sac it to Greater Good. You could also play it right before you drop something like a Blasphemous Act to draw 13 cards or even hit a fat Traverse the Outlands.

You really need a snowboard against Blue. I play Blue tempo a lot, and know this deck will be chump prey against every card I have. For example, a single Stern Dismissal restarts your counters, destroys your Auras, and wrecks your tempo. Essentially, ultra low costed Blue cards will push you around.

Maybe add a sideboard with cards like Cragplate Baloth, Questing Beast, The Great Henge, or Destiny Spinner?

I'm glad you liked my recommendations and I'm not at all insulted by your questions. (I also like to ask a lot of questions :) ). Here are my answers to your questions.

I can why you would not want to run artifact ramp if people in your playgroup have a lot of artifact removal. I would still suggest you add a bit more ramp and change your four mana ramp into two-mana ramp like Rampant Growth and Sakura-Tribe Elder.
I had the same argument with myself about whether or not I would include the boots and cloak in my deck but I eventually decided that they were too annoying and unwieldy.
Having creatures in your deck that you can attach equipment to is not wrong however I think you have too many of them in your deck. There are around eight things that are designed to hold equipment in your deck besides the commanders if you count the Planeswalkers and I think that is too many because if you draw a creature designed to hold equipment while you already have a creature designed to hold equipment on the board the one in your hand is not very useful.
Yea... I forgot about the black in the text box of Cranial Plating.
I would recommend replacing Questing Beast with Sword of Sinew and Steel because the sword can deal with Planeswalkers better than the Questing Beast can and it can also deal with artifacts.
If you want any more ideas I have my own equipment deck. The colors and focus of the deck are a bit different than yours but that should not matter that much because equipment is colorless, well equipment other than Cranial Plating.

And again if you have any questions feel free to ask.
