Soul of Zendikar Discussion

multimedia on (60% sub $500) What is a 4/4 Green Beast?

1 month ago

Hey, I like the changes you've made, well done.

Armada Wurm is a good high CMC creature upgrade and it makes many other high CMC creatures here not needed. Creatures such as Soul of Zendikar, Tendershoot Dryad, Thragtusk, Rampaging Baloths, Wingmate Roc. These creatures and the token they can create for their mana costs are not better with or without Ghired than what Armada gives you for six mana. When you get Doubling and Lives these are creatures who could be cut.

Another place to think about upgrades is the manabase. The precon manabase is decent, but there's still too many lands that will always ETB tapped making it slow. Some dual lands that can ETB tapped are fine such as Check lands and Battle lands, but these lands can ETB untapped and have a much better chance of doing that because of the high number of basic lands.

Currently Farseek can only search for Cinder Glade meaning it can't search for a dual land that can make white mana. What makes Farseek a good card is it can be dual land ramp which also makes it color fixing. Canopy Vista is a land to consider adding.

With the current manabase consider these lands upgrades:

Like the Talismans the Pain lands will ETB untapped, you pay 1 life to make colored mana or they can make colorless mana without paying life. This is fine though, don't be afraid to use your life as a resource in 40 life Commander especially if you're playing cards that can gain you life later on in a game. Brushland and Karplusan are nice because they can ETB untapped turn one to cast a green one drop mana dork.

The Check lands are fine lands when playing a lot of basic lands in the manabase. Rootbound and Sunpetal will ETB untapped if you control just one Forest which is the most lands of the manabase. Of course Pain lands and Check lands can be even further upgraded with Shock lands and other Rainbow lands, but this is a start to consider for manabase upgrades.

Hey, you're welcome :)

What's the max budget you have to make card upgrades? When you finish making upgrades what price range can you have for total deck cost? The precon for example at $60 is low and I would hope you could afford at least $50 for upgrades. If you can afford more expensive price cards then my card suggestions will be different then if you can't. Smothering Tithe and Birds of Paradise for example are very good cards for ramp, but they might be too expensive for the budget.

What advice about upgrades would you like?

Some cards from the precon that can be cut since they're not as good as others or don't have good enough synergy with Ghired:

TypicalTimmy on Possible answer as to what ...

ScionsStillLive, Joe_Ken_; No idea about lesser Eldrazi. Sorry.

ZendikariWol; The YouTuber Aether Hub. He goes over lore, both common and fringe, from all years of MTG. I was watching this video in which he goes over the newest evil Planeswalker; Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage . In the video, Seiben - the host - explains how Davriel's vast power comes from how a Worldsoul Entity embedded itself into Davriel's mind, driving him insane but giving him near-limitless power.

That got me thinking on Worldsouls and how the Plane itself is alive.

The rest is just pure conjecture on my behalf, since we don't actually have an answer.

But to me, it makes perfect sense. If the soul of an entire world happens into the Blind Eternities, which are known to warp, twist and rend physical nature and reality , then it makes sense that a Worldsoul could become distorted so much that it becomes an Eldrazi Titan.

We can also look back to see how many worlds are, in canon, dead / destroyed. Not just changed or altered, such as Mirrodin / New Phyrexia, but literally no longer in existence.

We have the world of Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath , who literally killed every last living thing of his world (See: Conqueror).

We also have Vivien Reid 's world, Skalla, which was destroyed by Nicol Bolas.

There is, technically speaking, Amonkhet - though it is still alive by just a hair with Hazoret protecting a small population of survivors. However, I suspect Amonkhet will soon fall, as a Plane of limitless undead can not be held off forever.

I wish I had at least one more to bring to the table that we know for sure is dead and is also prior to the events of Rise of the Eldrazi, but I don't know of any.

Regardless, we have the following pieces;

  • Planes have Worldsouls that can be represented in Avatars - See cards such as Soul of Zendikar and Soul of Innistrad .
  • Planes can die, see Ob Nixilis' world, Vivien's world, and the currently dying Amonkhet
  • When a Plane dies, it's Worldsoul becomes an 'Entity', which we know is sentient and can influence others. See Davriel
  • We know that the Blind Eternities twist and warp reality, nature, biology, mind, body, soul, mana - everything

So it's not a far leap, more like a small step, to assume that the Eldrazi Titans are corrupted Worldsouls.

Cards that I would cut:

Regeneration , Executioner's Hood , Natural End , Bladed Pinions , Revive , Nature's Spiral , Staff of the Wild Magus , Crashing Footfalls awesome if you can cheat the suspend on it, not worth it otherwise, Prodigious Growth , Feasting Troll King and Trail of Crumbs you lack enough of a food theme to run these well enough to include, Moldgraf Monstrosity the random return makes this lackluster, Jaddi Lifestrider , Soul of Zendikar the activation is kind of expensive, Tuinvale Treefolk doesn't do enough to warrant inclusion, Canopy Cover and Web auras not the best here, I'd cut one of Planewide Celebration or Once and Future , and finally, Sandsteppe Mastodon

If you own one, I'd sub out Wall of Blossoms for Elvish Visionary for the synergy with Elvish Archdruid .

No Sol Ring ? This a ban in local meta?

If you happen to own them, some cards that you may want to think about: Tendershoot Dryad , Beast Within , Inspiring Call and Garruk, Primal Hunter . Yes, that means more cutting but they should be worth it in this deck.

I'd also add a Rogue's Passage in place of one Forest , just for some added punchthrough that is hard to remove.

I think you need more token producers that double as manasinks. Using Radha-ability mana on cards feels like you'll end up overextending fast. Centaur Glade is not bad. Dragon Roost is expensive but may work. Myr Matrix is resilient. Night Soil doubles as GY hate. Ant Queen , Jade Mage , Soul of Zendikar etc.

Sicktoid on Tatyova, everithing I do is just ramp

I like Constant Mists in these kinds of decks. The decks that are planning to win with combat damage often just fold to that one.

Patron of the Moon and Meloku the Clouded Mirror might be other worthwhile additions?

I'd also look into some mana sinks. I mean there has to be a point where you have enough mana and you might want to start spending it on something to actually win the game, right? :) I run buyback spells (Wurmcalling) in my Karametra deck, which I'm guessing works somewhat similarly to this one. Soul of Zendikar, Nemata, Grove Guardian... Something like those, perhaps?

Laboratory Maniac looks a bit strange in this deck. Has it been working for you?

TheAmazingSteve on Need a good 6 CMC ...

Dragonlord Dromoka could help protect the combo a bit if necessary, and is just a good card to run in general.

Soul of Zendikar / Nemata, Grove Guardian / Urbis Protector creates infinite tokens.

Carnivorous Moss-Beast creates an infinitely big creature.

For what I can tell, without using Auratouched Mage to fetch Boonweaver combo (which, with the other combo, takes up a whole lot of deck space), there is no way to instantly win the game w/out other included cards.
