Spearbreaker Behemoth Discussion

NV_1980 on It's stompin' time!

Hi JV38,

Thanks very much for your feedback! I think Pathrazer of Ulamog is going to be added due to its synergy with It That Betrays. I very rarely hard-cast in this deck, so I like your Artisan of Kozilek and Spellbreaker Behemoth suggestions, but I think I'll save these for another deck :) Especially Artisan of Kozilek; he would fit well in my Meren deck. Spellbreaker Behemoth might find its way into an idea for a Marath deck I've been brewing for a while.

Spearbreaker Behemoth and Siege Behemoth are both cards I do not own yet, but they could prove wonderful in this deck. I'd choose Spearbreaker Behemoth over Soul of New Phyrexia, because my opponents rarely let me keep more than three creatures at any one time on the battlefield anyway :)

If I had to choose cards to drop in favor of these three cards, I'd probably drop Engulfing Slagwurm (because it's nice, but not THAT nice), Karametra, God of Harvests (because I'm not hard-casting that much anyway and this deck has more than enough ramp as it is) and Asceticism (because I also have Privileged Position and Archetype of Endurance in here and both are a bit better anyway).

Love the idea of cheating out big creatures. I run a similar concept using kruphix as my commander.

It That Betrays is an all time favorite and I believe you could abuse him even more. Cards like Pathrazer of Ulamog and Artisan of Kozilek might do well (especially if you hard cast the artisan).

Also might want to consider Spellbreaker Behemoth, Spearbreaker Behemoth, and especially Siege Behemoth which may end up winning you the game itself. Even Soul of New Phyrexia might work. All have synergy with creatures of 5+ power specifically.

I saw someone recommend Deathless angel, but also Spearbreaker Behemoth, and Gaddock Teeg work well against removal. It may be worth your time to add in Woodland Bellower, and Recruiter of the Guard just to make sure you are able to get him out to stop wraths.

@PhotogenicParasympathetic Stonehoof Chieftain, Angel of Serenity, and Terastodon will now be added.

Spearbreaker Behemoth is a maybe at this time as im not sure what to take out for it.

I feel as if Dragonlord Dromoka is better than Spellbreaker Behemoth.

Land wise, i do need to look at my lands and fix them so i thank you for the suggestions.

Omnath, Locus of Rage, Mayael's Aria and Martyr's Bond have now been removed.

Blightsteel Colossus is a strong card, in our play group we use the following rule for infect: Infect damage is 20 for a kill on a player.

Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger is a card i offerd to take out but it was classed as ok.

I've now added Hateflayer and Decimate and i'm looking at some other cards now listed on the Maybeboard.

Thank you for you help on this.

I agree with the above comment, Stonehoof Chieftain, Angel of Serenity, and Terastodon are all fantastic cards. I'd also advise adding Spearbreaker Behemoth and Spellbreaker Behemoth, as well as Summoner's Pact.

I'd also add some lands like Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion, Gavony Township, Slayers' Stronghold, Kessig Wolf Run, and Rogue's Passage. Without them, Tempt with Discovery just isn't very good.

I'd cut Protean Hulk - you can't get more than one creature off him, and while there are some choice cards to get... do you really need a seven mana tutor? Omnath, Locus of Rage is great, but you can't really abuse his landfall, so I'd cut him. If you're looking to make the deck "no dick moves," then Blightsteel Colossus and Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger are both out of place. I'm not sure how effective Mayael's Aria and Martyr's Bond have been for you, but they seem slow and generally less effective than you'd like.

Creatures:

  • Deepglow Skate first gives Animar a counter on the cast trigger, then doubles all his counters. (Plus any others you have)

  • Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger combos with Palinchron. By himself he is simply a mana doubler that screws over everyone else, even the person who taps mana to inevitably remove him.

  • Spearbreaker Behemoth is indestructible and can make Animar indestructible. Fantastic in surviving the inevitable boardwipes. (Yavimaya Hollow is also highly recommended for this)

  • Temur Sabertooth is a major player, and goes infinite with a few of your creatures, and provides value with many others. It's like a cheap Deadeye Navigator that gives itself indestructible and doesn't have to soulbond.

  • Walking Ballista is a game-ender. Cast this after gaining infinite etb counters on Animar and kill everyone with direct damage, or just cast him for a lot for targeted removal value.
