shadow63 What card? Savage Punch ? That's a fight effect. I would say the first card I have known as one-sided fights is Crush Underfoot and a more flexible version in Soul's Fire . The first green version was Rabid Bite in Shadows over Innistrad.

Others that followed in green: Aggressive Instinct (from the global series), Ambuscade , Band Together , Clear Shot , Combo Attack , Moonlight Hunt and Nissa's Judgment .

I don't think there's a consensus on what this effect should be called.

+2: Destroy target Oko Planeswalker

-1: Search target plane or player's deck for any instance of Oko and remove him from the game.

-8: Cast Plummet , Overrun , Naturalize , Rabid Bite , and any other green spells you have in your hand. And, um, draw some cards. But no more than the number of creatures you have. Or their power. Yeah, definitely their power. Gain 4 life.


If there's anything Garruks hates it's a crown - especially Oko's crown, cuz he stole it that little-

Sadly, there's this in regards to a centaur walker:

"We’ve done the market research for Magic," Rosewater said on his Blogatog after a fan asked about why Wizards of the Coast rarely designs a world with no humans. "The majority of players like having Humans. The planeswalkers that resonate best are Human. The legendary creatures that resonate best are Human. That’s why we tend to have a lot of Humans in the game and on most worlds."

I hope you're right though, it'd be an interesting direction to take.

Bony Spider

Creature - Skeleton Spider


, Exile Bony Spider from your graveyard: Destory target creature with Flying.

, Exile another creature card from your graveyard: Return Bony Spider from your graveyard to your hand.


I'd like a simple, but novel common removal spell like Pacifism , Unsummon / Sleep Paralysis , Murder , Lightning Strike , Rabid Bite / Plummet

This deck has no answers to flyers or control, and despite having a mostly low curve it's going to take too long to build up to effectively answer to aggro and stompy decks. Also, you're going too wide with cards. Try to focus on getting playsets of your most effective cards (in my opinion Gyre Sage , Rishkar, Peema Renegade , Barkhide Troll , Renegade Krasis , Ghalta, Primal Hunger , Animation Module , and Avatar of the Resolute against flyers), and try using Rabid Bite for effective removal. You'll want to just attack with Ghalta, Primal Hunger , there are few games a 12/12 trample can't figure out. If you have space 4 Power Conduit 's can also make blockers way easier to deal with, basically being reusable combat tricks.

BurfertTheSurly, I just reread your comment-- I'm a bit confused. Rabid Bite allows us to pick which of our creatures deals damage, and allows us to pick to which of their creatures we would like damage dealt, just like Prey Upon , except that the damage is only one way-- from our creature to theirs. Thus, Rabid Bite should be able to get rid of heavy hitters AND allow our creature to live (so we sacrifice nothing). Perhaps I'm misunderstanding you?
