Riding the Dilu Horse Discussion

Love this!!! When you add lands, make sure that they all have trees in the art. And when playing, don't forget that similar to Riding the Dilu Horse the buff from Really Epic Punch is permanent.

Riding the Dilu Horse does not say until end of turn. They never stop riding.

DemonDragonJ too powerful for which format? UMA Sealed, Casual or Pauper?

Path to Exile is actually exactly what Pauper needs...Delver and Rainbow Tron Decks are dominating the scene right now and Path would really give the more fun decks (like Acid Trip) a way to step up and be more competitive.

Other cards I think that UMA needs to see reprinted at Common are Oubliette, Lotus Petal and fun cards like Riding the Dilu Horse - this would actually get me buying a booster or two...as it stands I'll stick to one or two singles.

Where Wizards really dropped the ball with UMA was not reprinting: Mox Opal, Imperial Seal, Grim Tutor, Zodiac Dragon, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Phyrexian Altar and Back to Basics.

That's what this set really needs to justify the absurd price tag of the booster boxes - a bunch of great cards (which are all overpriced) that players actually want that would also benefit multiple formats.

Daedalus19876: Thanks alot for the response :) You are definitely right, maybe my meta just removes it too fast so i never really get to use it, and my meta is quite high level so removing one thing a turn is usually not enough :) Might swap it for Windgrace's Judgment in my build :)

Agree with Deathrite Shaman, have cut him to use in my other decks. I completely agree with Quillspike i always seem to miss one more combo piece to go off with him, and he won't survive the turn rotation. Riding the Dilu Horse True, but then again every deck needs a pet card and it is very good :)

Odysseus_97: Hmmm. Well, if he survives a turn cycle he's ridiculous. And while he does tend to eat removal, that removal would otherwise often be aimed at my commander, so I don't OVERLY mind trading cards 1-for-1 when I only have to pay one mana.

Three most cutable cards: Uh, maybe Deathrite Shaman (can be inconsistent), Quillspike (he's proved to be very conditional and fragile), Riding the Dilu Horse (opens me up for 2-for-1s, even if I love the card when it works right)?

Just curious, what does Riding the Dilu Horse do here for you? It’s not a bad spell but pumping a single creature and make it unblockable for 1 turn worth the slot and the 100$? Wouldn’t a Whispersilk Cloak do a better job here?

NVM, overlooked it doesn’t end at the end of turn. Still not sure if a whispersilk cloak isn’t better in a meta with a few boardwipes

Odysseus_97's original post was incorrect; the Horsemanship only lasts until Hapatra leaves the field. Think of it like an aura that gives +2 and unblockable.

skeletonkey8: You are correct; Riding the Dilu Horse is just there to punch through difficult board states (and let Hapatra have more -1 counters before dying). It's not necessary for the deck to function, although it is handy.

I love this deck but i do have another question, what is the use of Riding the Dilu Horse, is it just getting damage through tough board states?
