Spellbreaker Behemoth Discussion

Coolie2 on Plangeldrazi Deck

1 week ago

I've been thinking about maybe adding red to the deck, which would let me add in cards that would be helpful. I made a new list of possible cards to add, including possible red ones, so I would appreciate thoughts on whether or not I should add red to the deck, and on the list:

Mayael the Anima

Angel of Serenity

Dragonlord Dromoka

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds

Selvala, Explorer Returned

Sigarda, Host of Herons

Spellbreaker Behemoth

Iroas, God of Victory

Gaea's Herald

Archetype of Endurance

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight

Purphoros, God of the Forge

Xenagos, the Reveler

Warstorm Surge

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.

@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.

If i'm being honest, I have no idea what i replaced the ventmaw with. Hamletback Goliath would be cool if what you said about my play group wasn't the truth. My friend has a tribal board wipe deck, so I have to play under the assumption that by the next turn my stuff won't be around and I'll have to rebuild my board state. With the that in mine, the Goliath is just too slow. The reason I don't run Vexing Shusher is because my playgroup is removal heavy, but not particularly counter spell heavy. If the group played more counter spells, I'd run a creature like Spellbreaker Behemoth. It's a big beater (ish) and I don't need to spend extra mana over the course of the game for it.

Austin_Smith_of_Cards Thanks for the feedback! You know, I had actually meant to add Charging Cinderhorn into the deck a while back but amidst all the idea forming, it slipped my mind. Good suggestion! Spellbreaker Behemoth was already in my maybeboard, but I couldn't find anywhere to make cuts. You are right about the land, though. i'm typically swimming in mana, not to a hindrance.. but still 3 basics won't kill me by any means!

Shaman of Forgotten Ways was a questionable card for me until I talked this over out loud. Basically, I didn't want to make myself boltable or killable by any kind of direct damage if i use the ability (and they use bolt in response). However, they would be bolting my life before the effect resolves, bringing me back to my life total equal to the amount of creatures I control. Good suggestion, I threw it in there!
