Serra Avatar's power and toughness are each equal to your life total.

When Serra Avatar is put into a graveyard from anywhere, shuffle it into its owner's library.

Serra Avatar doubles your life when it comes down with Trostani out. Well of Lost Dreams is an amazing draw engine for this deck, I highly recommend it! Though expensive, Sylvan Library is amazing in life-gain decks like this.

rwobsession on Do you even fling, bro? - first EDH deck

2 weeks ago

Hope you're enjoying the deck! Here's a few suggestions if you want from when I had mine together, tempted to rebuild it:

Mimic Vat is tons of fun in this deck. Outside of your own big creatures, sometimes your opponent self-mills something spicy and you can't resist it...

Aetherflux Reservoir is a staple, but it's pretty hilarious when you can fling Serra Avatar , gain your life back, then one shot someone (or two) with it. (Best case scenario, but Brion Stoutarm gains you life throughout the game.

Sigil of the New Dawn lets you get back those creatures you flung.

Hallowed Burial wipes the board Terminus -style. Gets around indestructible and stuff.

Taurean Mauler is a cheaper Hamletback Goliath that grows with every spell your opponents cast, I'd run both personally.

Moltensteel Dragon is a cute addition. Pay a bunch of life you gained to pump up its power to finish someone off.

Rite of the Raging Storm gets you elementals to throw every turn. Plus, your opponents get them and can only attack each other with them! Mwahahahahaha

Looks like Generous Gift would be a great addition to your Sunforger package.

Vandalblast is a staple suggestion is all.


SlayerK113 on Kresh The Bloodbraided

4 weeks ago

My first few rounds of testing with this deck went well. I was surprised how fast Kresh got to lethal. In one game there was a Serra Avatar that got him over a 100/100. It was very fun to play, but also made me public enemy number 1. There was a turn four elimination that was a surprise. I will look into some alterations for the deck for maybe fewer ways to get Kresh big (because that happens so easiely) and more strengths in other places.

I started collecting my own cards during Urzas Saga, my first deck was a lifegain built around Serra Avatar . Looks like I'm from Serra's Realm

I mentioned Razaketh because part of his name is the first part of the combo's name. To play him however you also want a lot more of enablers to get him into your graveyard and reanimate him to cheat his mana cost. If you're not cheating his mana cast then Razaketh's cost is too high to be casting. I didn't go more in depth about Razaketh because you need reanimation and your deck is not focusing on that strategy. I however suggested him because you seem to like high mana cost creatures who can use life in some way and Razaketh is much better than both Minion of the Wastes and Serra Avatar .

You're right you use Razaketh to assemble a combo to then tutor for another combo. It seems counter-intuitive, but having a tutor engine is really powerful and that's what Razaketh is with the Warder/Animate combo. Even if you're not winning by tutoring with Razaketh you are stacking your hand with everything else you need to win for the next turn while also having an 8/8 flying threat on the battlefield.

The two card Warder/Animate along with Artist combo I think you should consider including it because it's compact, low mana cost, three two drops and has interaction with many other cards here.

Gim on Oloro Homebrew

Crested Sunmare is an auto-include in any Oloro deck. Such a good card.

If you're looking to have a fairly interactive deck with Oloro at the helm, I recommend any creature that does things when you gain life. Oloro naturally pushes you in the direction of control, which is fine for some, but I think something more along the lines of midrange is more fun for a newer player as I have found from personal experience. Archangel of Thune , Angel of Vitality , Serra Avatar , Drogskol Reaver , and Resplendent Angel are all great examples of these types of cards. Karlov of the Ghost Council is also an amazing card that is easily abused in Oloro.

If you're looking for more lifegain and drain stuff, Kambal, Consul of Allocation is a really good one, as is Vizkopa Guildmage , Suture Priest , Twilight Prophet , and Exsanguinate .

I can't really think of anything else off the top of my head but from one Oloro player to another, I hope you have fun.
