Spirits on Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH

15 hours ago

Hi SynergyBuild,

I definitely use that strategy. I have many, many creature tutors, which I use to pull Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist. Because enchantments are harder to tutor for me, and I always tutor Sylvan Library or Duelist's Heritage or Greater Good (unless situation calls for Aura Shards or Rancor), Dueling Grounds wouldn't get tutored. Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist does the same thing (and better, doesn't restrict my attack), so if I have a Rhonas the Indomitable or an enabler like Silverblade Paladin I'm still free to attack with everyone.

I really need Sterling Grove back in for an additional Sylvan Library tutor. I only played 3 cat games this past FNM/Weekend, and didn't find I needed the Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist in any of those. So I think it can be situational. For example, vs. Kess, Dissident Mage or Mizzix of the Izmagus it's actually going to hurt me. There was a Gisela, Blade of Goldnight but was able to take that down with infect/doublestrike before it would get aggressive. If I do (rarely) get some cat tokens going, they wouldn't be effective either.

I'm adding to my maybeboard for now, have to think about it more. Initially I don't need the duplication of Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist ability, whose killing a 6/5 first strike attacking cat. At CMC3 it is quite viable though. Hmm. Great suggestion, under consideration. Still feel more creature tutors is still better as it gives Modularity to pull different solutions/offense (like an Eldritch Evolution or something)

Monomanamaniac on White beatdown

I need suggestions on how I should add blue to the deck so I can use Geist of Saint Traft, Slippery Bogle, and a couple other decent blue options. I also have thoughts for green, with Rancor and Alpha Authority any advice accepted

VesuvanDoppelbanger on Zacama Voltron Commander

Awesome start. Here's some of my picks for that general theme:

Leatherback Baloth, Rancor, Alpha Authority, Archetype of Endurance, Carnage Tyrant, Conifer Strider, Mwonvuli Beast Tracker, Plated Crusher, Silhana Ledgewalker

and (sounding trumpets)....

Centaur Omenreader is Ghalta's secret love.

Some equipment:

Loxodon Warhammer, sword of fill-in-the-blank (some are pricey), Hammer of Nazahn <--- winner winner chicken dinner, Grafted Wargear, Shuko, Helm of Kaldra, Helm of the Host <--- My new fave equipment.

This deck looks like it's going to be fun to build. Let me know what kind of budget you're on, and I'll make a few more specific suggestions. If you're willing to throw $20 or $40 at this, you can probably make it very aggressive.

Fleetwood-Mat on What are some cheap creatures ...

Leonin Arbiter is a great modern card and can be used to great effect in combination with other modern control staples like Ghost Quarter and Path to Exile; also hoses fetches. Ajani's Pridemate better as a grower, need to have lifegain to make him good though. Rancor also could be a card worth considering, although it's not a creature, it's got super value at a green, gives trample to get past chump blockers. And we get down to probably the best 1 drop grower in those colours; Serra Ascendant... could take some time to get big without some help though, but curves into pridemate nicely. Another good 2 drop that doesn't need to swing to be good and deadly is Suture Priest, which combines the abilities of Soul Warden and Blood Seeker, which if you use, you could run a card called Mercy Killing, hope some of this can help.

Beebles on WURMS

Wonderful! Would have expected to see Steely Resolve in here. Also, consider including the Endless Wurm + Rancor (and Aspect of Mongoose/Spirit Loop) classic at least one game ;).

TheMadRocketeer on Hope You Were Vaccinated (G/B)

I have a few new cards I may add soon. I could convert this deck to G/U, just beef it up as G/B, or even try making it B/U/G (though the lands I own might not support that sufficiently). Another possibility is to make 2 decks.

New Cards:
These numbers represent how many I have of each, not necessarily how many I would use in this deck.
4x Blighted Agent
1x Groundswell
3x Rancor
1x Mutagenic Growth
4x Nature's Way
4x Wildsize
I also have some of the usual blue evasion and counter spells.
Any suggestions?

WebPocket,
Yeah, I've run it through ~100 matches now on MTGO, including pick-up games in the Tournament Practice Room, 1x Friendly League, and 5x Competitive Leagues. My overall Match Win Percentage is almost exactly the same as with Wolbers' list, but the games seem MUCH more swingy. E.g., though I have yet to 5-0 with the deck, it's earned 2x 4-1 ... but I've also played it to a 1-4 and an 0-4 drop.

I've not tried Rancor; that may be worth a look for sure.

How's your deck been doing?

Benefaction of Rhonas is a slightly better Kruphix's Insight- I'd consider running both.

There are some interesting tools in the monogreen enchantment toolbox- Asceticism is undoubtably my favourite, but you might like Bow of Nylea Crop Sigil, Rancor, Cream of the Crop, Wreath of Geists, Oath of the Ancient Wood,

Impromptu Raid/Call of the Wild are an interesting pairing for mono-green ramp lists, but rarely run well.

I reccomend focussing a little on ramping into higher cost cards- 5 drops are a lot less expensive money-wise than 4 drops in modern, and a lot of them are game changing- a well placed Plow Under or Primal Command, stacking up a Gigantiform, Gutter Grime, Lost in the Woods etc.
