Rishkar, Peema Renegade Discussion

stekedm on Sultai Evolution

I know that if you're playing Eldritch Evolution you can tutor for what you need so it makes sense to have a variety of 1 ofs. but I think you might want to cut down a little bit to add some more consistency. is Altered Ego just a budget choice over running more high impact cards? because you don't look like you'll be putting too many +1/+1 counters on it and copying your opponents stuff is a little riskyi'd probably cut the Void Grafters the Hope of Ghirapurs and add more Tireless Trackers and Rishkar, Peema Renegades

Rishkar, Peema Renegade for tireless tracker isn't the worst replacement I suppose right.

Good ideas here, consider building around the synergies of Gift not using it as a plan B. +1

Consider Gate to the Afterlife to tutor for God-Pharaoh's Gift? It's the fastest and most efficient way to get Gift into play. Without playing Afterlife, Gift is a seven mana play which is unrealistic. Adding Afterlife means you also need to include a self milling strategy which is fine because Afterlife can tutor for Gift out of the graveyard. Self milling yourself makes it easier to actually have enough creatures to utilize Gift's reanimate ability once it's online.

Consider this 12x card self milling package (might need more self mill, but this is a start):

These cards let you put creatures into the graveyard and both Wits and Planning also either let you draw or dig. Rivulet is a land which you can sac to mill yourself, using lands that are part of your deck's strategy are very good. Wits is great with Gift because the first time it's cast it can draw as well as put creatures in the grave and then when reanimated its a 4/4 letting you draw 4 four cards when it enters play.

My suggestions are to include 4x Gate to the Afterlife to tutor for 3x Gift, the 12x card self milling package and 3-4x Angel of Sanctions as an excellent reanimate target for Gift who can act also as a removal spell.

To make room for these suggestions I would cut 4x Supreme Will, 3x Nissa's Renewal, 2x Hieroglyphic Illumination, 3x Declaration in Stone, 3x Island, 1x Forest, 2x Rishkar, Peema Renegade and 1x Cloudblazer.

For sideboard options I recommend using creatures who have good enter the battlefield abilities to take advantage of them with Gift. Manglehorn as artifact removal, Cataclysmic Gearhulk as a pseudo board wipe, Linvala, the Preserver to help stabilize. For non-creature spells, Refurbish can reanimate a destroyed Gift, Declaration in Stone for aggro, Cast Out for additional unconditional catch all removal and Negate to protect Gift.

Good luck with your deck.

Grunyarth on JUND Constrictor

I would recommend Voltaic Brawler, Greenbelt Rampager, and 2x Rishkar, Peema Renegade, as the first 2 are good creatures, and winding constrictor into rishkar is possibly the strongest curve in standard. Also, if you have a constrictor and a Longtusk Cub on the board, Greenbelt Rampager Is basically just 1 green mana to give 2 +1/+1 counters to longtusk cub. Whether or not to mainboard Verdurous Gearhulk vs Ridgescale Tusker depends mainly on how much removal is in your meta (if you have no creatures the gearhulk is better). I personally don't find Scrapper Champion too powerful, as he can be underwhelming when you don't have a constrictor, although I could see him doing well in some match-ups, so it's up to you. Also btw you have 3 bristling hydras in the main and 2 in the sideboard. And Glint-Sleeve Siphoner is also awesome

Bhaal666 on Hapatra Wants More!

I have this fun little primer I put together shortly after Hapatra came out that I've tinkered with almost non-stop, Mistress of Poisons, Hapatra Primer and for some reason it only recently occurred to me that Rishkar, Peema Renegade and Hunter of Eyeblights deserve a test run. As do any similar cards but I'm having trouble finding any other similar cards and would appreciate some help.

I would also love to find more things like Beast Within and Terastodon. So I can give creatures to people and then eat them to make snakes :) a bit huggy but sometimes a little hug is what the vizier needs.

ACDAMAN, I'm really not sure what's going to happen post-rotation. One thing is for sure big changes will happen here. The energy strategy might be over and something else will takes it's place?

There's still an okay pool of Elves to choose from in Standard just finding the right combination and strategy to build around is going to be a new fun challange. I would like to continue to try to play Elves in Standard using new strategies or improving on existing ones such as ramp since Servant of the Conduit and Rishkar, Peema Renegade become the best Elves. The main reason I keep up with this deck and have for two years now is because it's fun to build new versions either with tribal Elves or find good shells that Elves can fit into. This is the challenge that I like and would like to continue here.

I could switch to Frontier it would definitely give a much larger pool of Elves to choose from especially Shaman of the Pack, but Frontier is not played in my circle and I don't see people playing the format on Untap.in or Xmage. The format seems kind of dead.

I don't think I will switch to Modern because of the cost and Elves are already pretty much solved. While they look very fun to play I want the challenge of making Elves work when they aren't solved.

It appears that Ixalan, the next set, although not official, doesn't have Elves. It's possible they're the dino riders, but this is pure speculation on my part. What it does have are tribal cards which can be used for any tribe. Are these cards good enough to build around I don't know yet. I'm not going to rule out no Elves in Ixalan until all the tribes for the set have been revealed which most likely will take place when the official Ixalan plane site on Wizards site is added or the Ixalan product page is updated.

Worst case scenario is I stop playing this deck after Ixalan, working on improving it or trying to make Elves work and return to it in April 2018 when Domanaria is released. I'm expecting Domanaria to have Elves.

N4kk1 on Mono green counter ramp

2 weeks ago

Well at first, 20 land isn't enough for any ramp deck, 23-24 is right amount.

When HOU comes out you have to have answer for Solemnity as it wrecks all decks like this.

I don't see why you play Evolving Wilds in mono colored deck.

Ajani, Valiant Protector Just isn't worth to play really, ultimate doesn't even usually win the game if opponent has removal spell, and standard decks plays usually lot of removal.

Paradox Engine Doesn't really fit in deck like this, of course it works nicely with Rishkar, Peema Renegade but still i don't like it.

Aetherwind Basker Isn't really that good, there are better options like Oran-Rief Hydra, Honored Hydra or if you want to stick with elf theme (You even play Metallic Mimic) Gladehart Cavalry isn't too bad.

There are things that i come up with at first, have fun playing!

Yeah, but I mean in general, not just based off of this.

The Rishkar, Peema Renegade list I made has been going off on turn T3 in playtests, so I feel like mono-green is really strong right now in general.
