Rapid Hybridization


Destroy target creature. It can't be regenerated. That creature's controller creates a 3/3 green Frog Lizard creature token.

I would add Monastery Siege for that optional protection or looting effect. Then maybe some single target removal with Swords to Plowshares and Rapid Hybridization . But if you are looking for something for potentially more value Council's Judgment is one I’ve had fun with in my Geist of Saint Traft deck. If you are sticking to taxes and cost reduction I would recommend Will Kenrith since his +1 can nerf two of your opponents creatures and the -2 is a draw two and cost reduction on more things until it comes back to your turn.

Creeping Renaissance can either get a lot of your instant tricks back or a good number of creatures if you've been wiped a few times. There's also Praetor's Counsel but renaissance is cheaper.

I dig the bounce Toothy (or other useful creature) tech.

That comment about needing Nexus of Fate is exactly why you don't want it or the other auto includes. Boring B.S. This deck actually looks fun.

Psychosis Crawler would do some work, but you've gone down that road before.

How have I not seen Forge of Heroes ?

Beast Within over Rapid Hybridization ? I know it costs 2 more, but more flexible and you've driven down the CMC of the deck as it is.

Shadow Rift over Slip Through Space ? I'm not seeing why the colorless makes sorcery speed better, or the slight risk of running into a Nether Traitor.

I don't think the cycling makes Dissenter's Deliverance better than Deglamer .

Glen Elendra Archmage is probably an auto include you should include considering how many uses you'd likely get out of it.

Spike Weaver is something I'd put in, but not really your style. But... fogs...

You will almost certainly need some form of interaction outside of a single Counterspell , either more counters or some general removal. Beast Within is great, since it hits anything you need to, plus you may want a couple artifact/enchantment destruction cards ( Krosan Grip is a good one, and although it’s a sorcery Broken Bond would fit right into the landfall theme).

Personally I dislike counterspells so I don’t usually run them, but you could run a few more of those if you wanted. If you want more traditional creature removal, Pongify , Rapid Hybridization , and Reality Shift are some personal favorites in blue. Green doesn’t have much in the way of directly killing creatures.

These are the kinds of cards people often forget about, but they’re very necessary if you want to succeed. There are tons I didn’t mention that are good cards, these are just some of my favorites. Good luck!

First, I just noticed. Tinker is banned in EDH. That may not matter in your meta, but I just thought I'd mention it.

It really depends on your meta as to what you need to do the first few turns. With my playgroup, building up mana is a good way to go, so using mana rocks and spells to get lands out are essential. You've got that down. If you're needing "early" game wipes, something like Evacuation or Chain Reaction aren't bad. Pongify and Rapid Hybridization are good cards for spot removal, and Reality Shift is still one of my favorite removal spells in all colors. If you wanna go with the tribal a little more, you could go with something like Obelisk of Urd , though I personally would stay away from doing that too much. Nezahal, Primal Tide has been an all-star in all of my blue decks. He's a big drop, but he's impossible to get rid of and nets you lots of draws.

I guess it really just depends on what you're wanting to build. Are you wanting to combo out and win quick cEDH style, or play a little more casually, albeit powerfully?
