Rancor Discussion

cdkime on Auras

The best options for hexproof are Gladecover Scout and Slippery Bogle. At 1 mana, you can play them turn one, hit them with two one-mana auras on turn two (Rancor, Ethereal Armor, etc.), so you're swinging for 5+ damage on the second turn. Consider running 4 copies of both hexproof creatures and four copies of Kor Spiritdancer, and no other creatures.

I would recommend running four copies of both Rancor and Ethereal Armor, as well as the following:

Daybreak Coronet is extremely powerful, allows you to safely attack and block with your powerful creature, and gains you life.

Spider Umbra will allow you to block flying creatures while also provide protection from Wrath of God-like effects.

Spirit Mantle makes your creatures unblockable. This one you can probably get by using three copies, since multiple instances of protection from creatures are redundant.

Cereal_Killer on Golgari Flyers

Seems a nice deck, but I'd make some suggestions:

First of all I'd add Fatal Push. It's very usefull when you want to remove an annoying opponent's creature. Probably I'd put it instead of Reaper from the Abyss, since it's true that the reaper is a creature that does good things, but it costs really much.

I don't really like Bone Picker and Savra, Queen of the Golgari since you don't have so many chances to cast the picker in the first turns and you don't sacrifice creatures, which makes the queen useless

Cards you could consider are: Bitterblossom, Basilica Screecher, Beckon Apparition, Daggerdrome Imp, Gurmag Swiftwing, Kitesail Freebooter, Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize, Ravenous Chupacabra

I understand why Awaken the Bear and Unnatural Predation are there (you want trample creatures). But aren't better Rancor, Vines of Vastwood or Predator's Strike?

Last thing: I'd add more Overgrown Tomb (raising it up to 3x) and 4x of Verdant Catacombs

FlavioFaive on Green and Black Aggro Madness

Oh! I liked the Phyrexian Arena idea! Instead of Rancor, Groundswell and Vines of Vastwood I would use Strength of Lunacy, Narcissism, Muscle Burst and Sylvan Might. Instead of Abrupt Decay or Maelstrom Pulse I would put Dark Withering. I'm doing a similar deck Threshold of Madness , maybe you can take a look to help me and take some ideias.

Gattison on Lumbersexual Gruulbois

Bloodbriar might make a good beater in this deck. Perhaps instead of Scab-Clan Mauler? You already have Rancor in there to give him trample when needed.

HashMasta, thanks for the suggestions. I thought of Viridian Longbow, and it's a good suggestion. I'll play around with it. Sparring Collar is an interesting suggestion. I was unaware of this card-- again, a nice suggestion.

I think at the moment, I need to expand the creature base a bit and I need to cut Elvish Herder down to probably 2x, and maybe only 2x or 3x of Llanowar Augur. Playing the deck on MTGO, I seem to get those two cards with some frequency without good targets all the time. I think I want to push to 26 creatures while limiting those two a bit. Not sure I'll have space for either of your suggestions, but maybe I'll try splitting the Rancors with Viridian Longbow (i.e., maybe 2x of each?) and see how that goes. Could be pretty good.

Thanks for the suggestions and the upvote!

What about Rancor instead of some 1-shot buffs? Not as strong as +3/+3 but recurs itself and you have it for multiple turns.

Spirits on Budget Rafiq of the Many - EDH $50

In your maybeboard I like:

Giltspire Avenger Exalted and can deter attackers, but 3 colors and $1+ makes sense to be a cut.

I would make room for Battlegrace Angel, has exalted and gives your Exalted Attacker lifelink. $0.56!

Cathedral of War was the land I was thinking about Friday, but it's $1.50! Can't include.

Sovereigns of Lost Alara is very powerful, tutors the exact aura you need for any situation, and probably makes them unblockable or lifelink in the process. With every strike it becomes lethal. $5 hard to account for but might be a way.

Rhox Charger is exalted and he has built in Trample, 3/3 Exalted for CMC4 isn't too bad for $0.25.

Stoic Angel would be an auto-include for me, especially with all of your guys making creatures come into play tapped. Swing with your Vigilance (Flying) Angel alone, and avoid any type of counter-strike from opponents. No going to find a better card for $0.50.

Grunn, the Lonely King is another option, he's CMC6 for 5/5 no Trample, but when he attacks, Stack his triggered ability, and then layer on all the Exalted, after the exalted get added, he doubles himself. If you have the kicker 3 a 10/10 for 9 is still ok. Needs a Rancor but he's pretty reasonable, especially with all the built in evasion effects.

Suprised you don't have Knotvine Paladin, he gets +1 from the Exalted ability, and stacks a second +1 for each "untapped" creature, which they all are, so doubles the Exalted when he attacks, another good finisher like Grunn, the Lonely King when evasion is available.

Cold-Eyed Selkie can draw some cards, since your not using blue much you don't have as much draw, since he's still works. Also if you can Exalted and Islandwalk someone, can repopulate your hand.

Swords to Plowshares is the best removal in Budget for $1.

Open the Armory is another Swiftfoot Boots, very important.

Farseek is good, can pull that Island for you.

Sigil of Valor is the exalted equipment because it doubles the Exalted effects!.

Behemoth Sledge is another (slightly worse) Loxodon Warhammer.

Simic Signet/Azorius Signet might be good for getting the as well.

Sigil of the Nayan Gods not bad, because if it useless, it has Cycling.

I'll continue further review later, off the top of my head,

Reciprocate generally bad, once it's hit your life it's too late, someone (situational) it will be good, but most creatures you NEED to remove aren't attacking, and if they are, the specifically have to attack you, and you have to choose to let them hit your life. Condemn is better because it can attack anyone, and doesn't have to connect to your life specifically.

Skarrg Goliath is too high CMC to be useful, and his bloodlust is also too high CMC.

More to come later, I used to have a Daxos of Meletis deck, so I have some ideas, but I utilized the quite a bit more. Fun Selesnya build. +1.

Rishkar's Expertise/Garruk, Primal Hunter. Super useful card draw, especially rishkar.

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds - MANA (and some card draw)

Siege Behemoth - Fav card in my xenagos deck

Sneak Attack - 1 red for vorinclex, double ur mana, cast shit, sneak in more dudes, swing

I'd like to hear your thoughts on my deck Xenabro if you could spare a moment.
