Scrounging Bandar Discussion

tru13 on Crazy Cat Menagerie (Standard, Budget) (Was Nissa)

I am going to make a variation of this deck, but I'm not using the Metallic Mimics or the Scrounging Bandars. Not using Fragmentize in the mainboard as well. Adding 1 Vizier of the Menagerie, 4 Pride Sovereign, and increasing Nature's Way, Heroic Intervention and Cast Out by 1 a piece. Adding 3 Solemnity and 4 Fragmentize to the Sideboard.

Just waiting on more cards to be spoiled. I plan on adding Sunpetal Grove as well when it releases in Ixalon.

Id swap out 2 Greenbelt Rampagers or 2 Rishkar, Peema Renegades for 2 Scrounging Bandars.Use your Verdurous Gearhulk and Rishkar, Peema Renegade to throw counters on Scrounging Bandar and Walking Ballista, triggering Winding Constrictor to put an extra counter on both, this then means you can use Scrounging Bandar's ability to move the counters on it over to Walking Ballista. I would also suggest Kujar Seedsculptor or Lifecrafter's Gift for the counter ramp, personally i find Longtusk Cub very dependant, same goes to Greenbelt Rampager, its very efficient but its been holding me back in tests with my own B/G Energy Counter deck. Lastly Durable Handicraft can be a good generator. Hope this advice helps! :D

takeaseathoney, During gameplay, I have found Kitchen Finks runs very well, Bond Beetle and Scrounging Bandar can negate a -1 counter by grafting a +1 counter. It combos well when targeted by your Beast Within if you need extra 2 life from persist and a 3/3 beast token.

Lmaokai Thanks for all the suggestions! I will certainly play Ridgescale Tusker instead of Stomper. I was splitting Natural Obsolescence w/ Dissenter's Deliverance for Indestructible\Scrapheap Scrounger, and because I'm not really familiar w/ my LGS's standard meta. I run only three Scrounging Bandar because they're dead if there are no valid target for it's ability. Then it's just a vanilla 2\2. I will consider Nature's Way instead of Prey Upon, but I'm not sure if I will switch them out. I usually just use Prey Upon on Narnam Renegade to kill a bigger creature (Deathtouch) and trigger revolt when Narnam dies. Since I can usually swing lethal on T5, I'm worried that Evolving Wilds will slow me down, but the ramp with Renegade Rallier is undeniably great.

Your suggestions are greatly appreciated!

In return, I'll +1 one of your decks

Canopy Vista Evolving Wilds. Wilds are for revolt trigger if you draw them for you double striker and if Scrounging Bandar are as important as you seem to be making them probably throw a 4th one in in place of the Narnam Renegade. Honestly I've been wanting to find some stupid f@#$ing reason to play Arborback because it's such a good card. Nature's Way is honestly the better Prey Upon but it does take up slots for 2 drops, but seeing how standard is more about the power of 2,3,4 drops now instead of the hella nerfed 1 drops I would recommend it. 2x Natural Obsolescence is questionable compared to 4x Dissenter's Deliverance if there's a reason please do tell. Ridgescale Tusker vs Arborback Stomper idk I think that arborbacks are best in sideboard rather than mainboard and if you run them you should run at least 2 in mainboard. Now the Tusker is a different story running one mainboard just for the super f@#$ing clutch draw that ramps the hell out of the game but doesn't make the deck drastically less consistent is a good idea. Overall I would cut outburst run 2x tusker in mainboard 2x stomper in sideboard make swap if against incredible aggro decks 4x Scrounging monkey thing, take out a herbalist believe me I've tried that idea but a 2/2 vanilla isn't all that great unless your running a shitload of board pump where you need bodies to just soak for a dickload of damage. Find some place for a couple more solemn recruits and if you have an evolving wilds on a draw with 1/2 of the out that'll be quite a tempo change when they trigger. Anyway I'm going to probably build this deck a bit differently but damn I still REALLY want to find a good place for arborback. GL in your gameday dude.

When Rishkar, Peema Renegade enters the battlefield, its second ability, which is a static ability, begins applying.

Additionally, Rishkar, Peema Renegade's first ability triggers. You put the triggered ability onto the stack and choose targets for it.

Now, at this point, you can actually tap Scrounging Bandar for mana because it already has a counter on it. However, you'll need to wait to tap Storm Crow until Rishkar, Peema Renegade's first ability resolves.

When Rishkar, Peema Renegade's first ability resolves, Animation Module's ability triggers once or twice, depending on how many creatures you targeted with the ability and put counters on. You can tap your Scrounging Bandar or Storm Crow for mana to pay for one of those abilities, but you can't tap Rishkar, Peema Renegade itself because it has summoning sickness.

Note you'll only be able to use the Storm Crow/Scrounging Bandar for mana, as Rishkar, Peema Renegade will still be summoning sick and unable to tap for mana.

I don't know whether the following cases are different or completely equal, but the key is that the second creature is not a mana dork in itself:

Case 1: Turn 1: Animation Module Turn 2: Storm Crow Turn 3: Rishkar, Peema Renegade giving himself and Storm Crow a +1/+1 counter.

Case 2: Turn 1: Animation Module Turn 2: Scrounging Bandar Turn 3: Rishkar, Peema Renegade giving himself and Scrounging Bandar a +1/+1 counter.

Same question both cases: Can the creature be tapped in order to activate Animation Module and put a Servo token after casting Rishkar, Peema Renegade?

Thank you.
