RazortoothMtg on Big creatures into little creatures

35 minutes ago

Mitotic Slime comes to mind. Reef Worm is sorta like that, but in the wrong colors. Abzan Ascendancy/Golgari Germination/Gutter Grime/Requiem Angel are sorta close, Belfry Spirit turns the creature it haunts into a card like that, Brindle Shoat, Tuktuk the Explorer and Doomed Dissenter just get bigger. Liege of the Hollows gives everyone squirrels when it dies. Symbiotic Elf, Symbiotic Beast, and Symbiotic Wurm turn into insects. Chasm Skulker explodes into a pile of squid (wrong colors again tho). Maalfeld Twins breaks apart into 2 zombies, and Mausoleum Guard into 2 spirits. Promise of Bunrei makes one of your dudes explode into spirits. Sporogenesis is kind of a cool card that makes your guys explode into saprolings on death. Sprouting Thrinax is good. Wurmcoil Engine is a popular one.Goblin Marshal/Mogg War Marshal makes goblins when he ETBs and dies. Hallowed Spiritkeeper, Hangarback Walker, and Hooded Hydra all work. Jotun Owl Keeper in blue again. Mongrel Pack is another one, as is Murder Investigation. Theres a whole bunch of "Penumbra" cards from odyssey that all make a black clone of themselves when they die (e.g Penumbra Wurm). Ulvenwald Mysteries turns each dead guy into a clue that it then turns into a soldier.

If I were to make a commander deck around this idea, I would go with a Jund, not Abzan, sacrifice deck led by Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper, or perhaps Shattergang Brothers. In addition to these you have a ton of guys that just make 1 token on death- Seed Guardian, Sifter of Skulls, Pawn of Ulamog, Tukatongue Thallid, Blisterpod, Myr Sire, etc.

xRustyBacon on Teysa, Orzhov Scion Combo

Nim Deathmantle I found is very strong. Works with Marsh Flitter and Ashnod's Altar for an infinite sac outlet triggers. Also any black creature, with Ashnod's Altar and Ogre Slumlord or Requiem Angel and Teysa, Orzhov Scion. Also works without Teysa if you have both Ogre Slumlord or Requiem Angel, or any extra token producer, like Field of Souls. Infinite mana can also be made with Nether Traitor, alongside Carnival of Souls, a sac outlet, and a Soul Sister effect (Soul Warden). I feel if you are running Triskelion you should also run Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, because some times you need to cheese that guy who plays Zur. Anyway, spicy Teysa build!

How are you planning to win ? I run a simular deck, but I ordered some bigger value creatures, to help get extra blink value. Yours however, seems to run a bit different.

Things like Cathars' Crusade and Requiem Angel wouldn't work in my deck for example.

I run cards like Kor Cartographer and Knight of the White Orchid to help me ramp more early than the untap X land cards. I run a bit more removal in the form of Luminate Primordial and Duplicant and I run some better beaters like Myr Battlesphere and Precursor Golem which can finish games quickly if i can blink it.

Other than that, I seem to have the same problem vs agro decks. I added some resilience vs more controlling decks (especially esper oloro in my meta), in an attempt to outvalue him, but time will tell ;)

Would like to hear your thoughts as well: Ephara, God of casual value

Tuning Notes:

  • Requiem Angel (Out) for Restoration Angel (In). Restoration has flash with a flicker effect. Fits the theme better. Requiem's CMC is higher and the second ability (while possibly useful) is arguably unnecessary
  • Vassal Soul (Out) for Wall of Denial (In). Wall is harder to remove, establishes earlier solid blocking against a commander, and can become a viable guardian with an anthem creature or two on the board
  • Latch Seeker (Out) for Mirror Entity (In). Mirror Entity can be a great win condition in this deck.
  • Judge's Familiar (Out) for Venser, Shaper Savant (In). Venser is a better "counterspell" since it always hits in the form of Remand. With plenty of creatures that bounce permanents/creatures back to hand on ETB, and now that I'm adding Crystal Shard, it's nice to have a repeatable Remand. Not to mention his recent reprint in MM17 makes him an affordable option again
  • Murder of Crows (Out) for Thistledown Liege (In). Test playing shows I have plenty of cards in hand. Anthem creature to win faster / make my creatures beefier seems like a better choice. Also the 3 devotion of Thistledown's not bad
  • Invisible Stalker (Out) for Crystal Shard (In). So much utility in the shard for either bringing my own back to hand or making an opponent pay for overplaying their hand. Can slow up aggro decks from early all-out taps to get creatures on the board
  • Uninvited Geist  Flip (Out) for Mist Raven (In). More bounce on ETB effects on a flying body to fit the theme

I really like Marrow Shards. I forgot about Darksteel Mutation as well because it is an enchantment, but both would fit in sideboard as options.

I have been considering Crovax, Ascendant Hero as an Elesh Norn Lite, and Requiem Angel since I could Secure the Wastes a bunch of chump blockers that would trade and become retaliating flyers. I think those would make solid mid game finishers for slightly less mana than Norn. I didn't want too many actual creatures in the main so that I had access to as many stall tactics as possible and to keep the ridiculous polymorph theme.

As I type this I just found a few ridiculous cards that really make this viable since it would get me to my few creatures fast and cheap... wow, can't believe I overlooked all of these...

Polymorph would turn one of my own tokens into either Elish Norn, Godhead, or Archetype of Courage. That's nuts. And that art? Are you kidding, so much lol. Totally mainboard worthy.

Mass Polymorph is absolutely going in sideboard where I can put exactly five creatures in the deck and then after playing Increasing Devotion on turn five I can play Mass Poly on six and have my end-game board automatically.

I overlooked Jalira, Master Polymorphist originally because it wouldn't let me get to Elish Norn, but now I'm seeing things differently and could make a case for her in the sideboard.

Thank you for spinning the gears again, I'm looking at this under a whole new light and now I'm even more excited to try it :)

Thanks for having a look and supporting the idea.
