Mastertoa on Card Draw? What Does Zada Know About Card Draw?

2 weeks ago

I feel that Rapacious One is a good top end of the curve for a pump based Zada deck, as it allows you to pump, and make more tokens, which then means more pump-able creatures next turn. However, in our more combo oriented decks, I don't really see the point. The way I see it, Dragonmaster Outcast serves a few possible functions. Either it: eats a removal spell early, which then means something else doesn't, or it doesn't, and becomes a win con, or I win and it serves no purpose other than being one more creature to target. I am certainly happy with all of the aforementioned possibilities, and it is a quality one drop that I'm not sad to draw IF the game goes late. Valakut, the Molten Pinnacleisn't great, but it doesn't suck. If the game goes that late, it's decent. If it doesn't, I'm not complaining. I could probably cut it for a Mountain, but it wouldn't make much of a difference, and I have one lying around.

Don't use Manalith. If you really want a rock, use Darksteel Ingot instead. Essence Feed isn't that good either, instead try out Rapacious One. Broodwarden might make a good finisher. Spawning Bed is also a good 1-2x.

Well, thats good to know about Rapacious One. I wanted to find a way to use it when I was running a more mid-range type Zada deck, but OGW is pushing me to cut a lot of the goodstuff mono-red combo cards in favor of consistency in hitting more cantrips.

I use Dragonmaster Outcast, like you, and it kind-of-sort-of supports an Utvara Hellkite (which more than pulls its weight on its own) + Dragon Tempest combo that I use because I felt like having something unique in Zada. However, I can count on 1 hand the number of times I got any tokens from Dragonmaster Outcast because I usually win before getting enough land. So, out of curiousity, are Dragonmaster Outcast and Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle pulling their wieght? This question is kind of meta dependant, so I am really asking to find out if you usually have games that drag on into later turns and get value from late game cards.

Goblin Dark-Dwellers will probably make it's way in. Rapacious One hasn't really been pulling it's weight, so that's probably what i'll cut for dwellers. I was running Goblinslide, and it was actually pretty good. i'll find some way to get it back in there.

Goblin Dark-Dwellers is performing extremely well in my Zada deck, I recommend it, even for the budget version.

I can see why Obstinate Familiar is a decent choice if you need more 1-drops.

I would like to know how Rapacious One is working for you.

Any particular reason you aren't running Goblinslide?

Ender666666: I have actually considered Volcanic Vision, but with the spells I am using it isn't a great fit. Mizzium Mortars was added instead, and Firestorm might go in at some point. Spell recursion isn't a priority, and the ones I am currently using are attached to creatures (which means easily repeatable).

I might consider Burn Away, but graveyard decks haven't really been a problem and it doesn't trigger if I kill a commander and it gets sent back to the command zone or sacrificed in response. The 5 mana is usually better spent on building up a field.

I actually played quite a few matches today, multiplayer matches for the first time in a long time. The speed and consistency were good. Descent of the Dragons and Utvara Hellkite were amazingly fun and effective. I like Soul Conduit especially because one of the decks was a life gain deck, but I think it fits much better as a part of the chaos variant list in terms of the feel I am going for with that deck (and I want to test out Rapacious One when I get one). Sword of the Paruns is really versatile here, but it serves the primary purpose of buffing the toughness of creatures I control (and secondary purpose of win-more because krenko abuses it so easily...This isn't a krenko deck, so I am trying to avoid that sort off thing), and I am looking for something outside the box which might possibly replace it. So far, I haven't found any new themes that have caught my eye, but I hope to see something interesting in the next few sets and keep my maybeboard stocked with things I want to try (or might go back to).

Jack-Frost on xenagos god of revels any suggestions for change

1 month ago

You might want to take a look at my deck: Wrath of the Revel for a few ideas. It's a competitive level EDH deck and i've played against a lot of people and won a lot of games with it.

From what I see here, i'd run a few more instants, sorceries, enchantments, and artifacts. Xenagos based decks run a lot of ramp and power creatures, but we need a touch of control, destruction, and damage cards to protect us and stop our opponents combos. You seem to be running a few too many creatures and it's overbalancing your deck. As much as we need to always have creatures available, we need decent other cards and anthems to aid us. Instead I would cut a few creatures and instead add tutor and other deck searching cards so we can 1- thin out our deck and have a better chance of drawing what we need, and 2- always be able to pull the creatures that we want.

Here are some suggestions from each category:

These are just some ideas and suggestions that you might want to look into. Again, if you want you can take a look at my deck Wrath of the Revel if you want and see if you think of any other ideas or if you have any thoughts or suggestions that might be able to help me out.

Thanks (+1), and good luck!
