Spike Feeder Discussion

Dumpstergod on Competitive Counters 2017

Rishkar, Peema Renegade is pretty gnarly ramp sometimes, has an immediate impact, AND it gets hit by CoCo, probably worth a 1-of. Another good 3 drop is Tireless Tracker but it's worse without fetches, as with Narnam Renegade :/ . BoP feels real bad off of a CoCo and doesn't have counter synergy. A single Pendelhaven could potentially help your early game a little. Commune with the Gods hits enchantments so it might be worth looking at depending on how important you feel your Hardened Scales are. It also gets a bit better if you decide to run something like Evolutionary Leap to dodge removal. If you're going to be discarding stuff and want to be more aggro, Slitherhead is nifty. Tezzeret's Gambit seems like it could be ok in small quantities. More low cmc counter synergy creatures are Obsessive Skinner (which can get delirium a bit faster with Commune), Maulfist Revolutionary, Aquastrand Spider, and Spike Feeder.

If you do want to keep your current color fixing, try adding Hardened Scales as it is a budget vrsion of Doubling Season. Though a bit pricey, you can look at Archangel of Thune so that it can combo with Spike Feeder. Spells with the bolster mechanic are prevalent throughout the Tarkir series, so look for those like Honor's Reward, Echoes of the Kin Tree, or even creatures like Sandsteppe Mastodon.

I could see Wall of Reverence and Ageless Entity getting out of control. It would double in power every turn.

There's always the classic lifegain combo, or Spike Feeder and Sunbond or Archangel of Thune.

Hey clayperce, I'm glad to hear that you checked it out on MTGO! Most importantly, I'm glad you had a blast playing it.

The mono-green mana base keeps the cost down without sacrificing power, so I hope the deck is accessible to lots of people like yourself. The recent addition of Tezzeret's Gambit really took the deck to the next level by keeping gas in the tank. Most hands have a strong line of play if one looks for it.

I am always willing to make tweaks and the current build feels very consistent and flexible. Chameleon Colossus seems like it might have a place in the sideboard against against Death's Shadow. As for Spike Feeder, I think it might be outclassed by Life Goes On and Scrounging Bandar.

And thanks for the feature!

So I gave this deck a quick spin on MTGO, and it's a TOTAL blast to play. And you're right about the power level ... so far I'm 1-1 vs. Eldrazi Tron, 2-1 vs. 4c Allies, 2-1 vs. BG Elves ... and that's with a TON of misplays, plus I'm positive my mulligans are sub-optimal.

For Death's Shadow, you might try Chameleon Colossus in the side. I run 3x in the main in RG Ponza (my primary deck) and it's AMAZING in the match-up. I's also hilarious vs. Merfolk and Elves, since Lord of Atlantis and Elvish Champion affect it as well.

Also, have you considered Spike Feeder? I like it in BG Corpsejack Menace shell, but I'm not sure if it'd be as good here.

Thanks tons for building this! +1 and a Feature from me!

The deck basically plays like a creature heavy mid range deck with a back door combo. You dont need to combo to win but its nice that its there for the matches you want it.

Oloro_Magic Leyline of Sanctity seems like a no brainer, but I had not yet thought of it. Thank you very much. The Spike Feeder thing was kinda forced. That's not really how I want to win, however I do want to win so I will just have to do more testing and see what's gonna be best.

Mandalorian Is your deck on the site? I would love to take a look at it.
