Spore Frog Discussion

thankfranktank02 on temur ment

@ Spore Frog I was thinking that as well. I am going to do an update to the deck tomorrow. So updates to come. As far as the "ball" package I was thinking about it but as for modern it just seams kinda meph. Most of them die to alot of highly seen cards. Granted there are times that they are good getting in for 6 damage is nothing to sense at. The overall slots don't In my honest opinion do not seam worth it.

Demarge on Ghave Aristocrats

2 weeks ago

Growing Ranks and Deathreap Ritual are the only two that came to mind, both are really slow going, ranks essentially reads "get a 1/1 on upkeep if you have a 1/1 token already" it's really only cool if you're populating Grove of the Guardian or Desolation Twin tokens (which are both terrible, but could be fun options for the deck.). deathreap is going to be a worse Phyrexian Arena in most cases, if you do have the board to make it better than arena you're probably winning anyway and the potentially 3 more cards wouldn't matter.

So those would be my suggestions for cuts, I'm unsure about where you want the power level of the deck to be so I'm playing it safe on guessing you're aim might be a low 50% level for my suggestions (a cedh level ghave looks vastly different from what one would first see him playing out). I have built Ghave twice, Tokens and Counters Everywhere, when he first came out following the Doubling Season token bonanza strategy, then I revised it with Aghave, tequila token party recently because the first I felt got way to bloated (I'm still making changes here and there for it).

Another random suggestion Spore Frog (reprinted in modern horizons so is cheap) likely would be a just better Kami of False Hope , it fits your mana base better and fit's ghave flavor better. I admit to just clicking the suggestion boxes for the random reference cards, but they are unlikely going to be good to play.

Inkmoth on Yeva Draw-Grow

Chansamu:

Glad you love the deck, man! :D As for your flying problem, I can't say that I have one. My meta usually consists of fast combo decks that aim to win around turn 5-6 or heavy control and stax decks. The deck currently has the best possible suite for general creature control without compromising the combo and as an added side bonus Great Oak Guardian can also help if absolutely needed.

Furthermore, there are other precautions you can take, like the Thornweald Archer . You can also use Kraul Harpooner and Emerald Charm . Personally, I don't like the other guys cause they do nothing for the combo at hand.

As for the Hexproof, you have access to Lignify and Song of the Dryads which can be brought out via Genesis Hydra . However, this is only relevant when you're trying to wipe the field with a pesky Hexproof creature and you're trying to end with Shaman of Forgotten Ways .

If damage is that much of an issue you can still make some concessions for something like Spore Frog or Timbermare for killing blows or set up a Turbofrog with Eternal Witness / Skullwinder .

However, if your pod makes you the archenemy because you're playing Yeva Draw-Grow, you might not be in the right arena. This is a deck that should be matched with similarly strong decks that don't rely on damage/voltron-like strategies that can pummel this deck in archenemy-like situations. Though, I promise you this deck will still manage to pull through those situations if played correctly and patiently as is.

I hope this helps!

The two big things I notice here are: you don't have a lot of expensive cards to cheat out with Omniscience (unless I'm missing a combo somewhere), and Grip of Chaos can get really annoying in a four player game with lots of stuff on the board. (I also don't know if Arcane Flight does enough to really be impactful.)

Based on the style of deck this seems to be, I'm a big fan of tossing cards from the advocate cycle in. In particular: Nullmage Advocate and Spurnmage Advocate give you a way to blow problems up while also returning cards (of your choice) to another player's hand. Pulsemage Advocate lets you bring a creature back. It's a great way to 'gift' someone cards that are useful to you (like a counterspell when someone else is about to wipe the board).

Oh, and given the Spike Weaver , picking up a Spore Frog or Kami of False Hope might be fun.

Love the concept. Love seeing Assault Suit in decks. Love the addition of Play of the Game .

Razamatazz on Brago :sweats:

4 weeks ago

Kiyomei - The best hate cards to shut down Brago are Aven Mindcensor and Torpor Orb . Brago searches the library constantly. Usually multiple times a turn. And obviously etb triggers is the name of the game. Brago also struggles against Ensnaring Bridge , Maze of Ith , Spore Frog , Constant Mists or anything else that prevents him from dealing damage. Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite making him a 0/2 for example. Anything that prevents him from triggering is the most relevant hate. Often that is simply targeted removal or a board wipe. An early Aura of Silence can also be painful to fight through because of the tax and built-in removal. Vandalblast overload can hose Brago as well.

Sanctum Prelate on 2 would stop Strionic Resonator , Lightning Greaves , most counterspells, many mana rocks, Power Artifact , Cyclonic Rift , etc. I think 2 would be best against Brago. However, 3 does stop Fabricate , Basalt Monolith , and Rings of Brighthearth ; and 1 stops Swords to Plowshares , Path to Exile , some counterspells, some mana rocks, Sensei's Divining Top , Silence , etc. If I was playing against Brago I would choose 2. Next best is 1 in my opinion, then 3.

multimedia on Help with Meren plz

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. enigmadox gave you great advice; I'll expand on it some.

Include budget creatures who can sac themselves because these creatures can give you experience counters without needing a sac outlet which is another card. Needing both a creature and a sac outlet to sac that creature is more difficult to get then just needing a creature. Sac outlets are also good and you should include them, but they're not as important in my opinion as creatures who can sac themselves.

Four drop Meren can benefit from early game ramp to be able to possibly play her turn three. Budget mana dorks can be ramp in the early game or sac fodder in the mid/later game to get experience counters.

Budget lands to consider adding:

Other budget cards to consider adding:

If you like some of these suggestions I offer advice on cuts to make. Good luck with your deck.

The Oaths are good as a budget options with Planeswalkers: Oath of Nissa , Oath of Liliana and Oath of Jace . Oath of Nissa can help to color fix for Planeswalkers, good with a budget Sultai manabase. Grateful Apparition can be another repeatable source of no mana cost proliferate. Pir, Imaginative Rascal is a less expensive price Doubling Season effect.

Pernicious Deed is powerful because it destroys all nonland permanents except Planeswalkers equal or less than the amount of X you pay. Spore Frog can be a repeatable Fog which is good to protect Planeswalkers. Vessel of Nascency is a budget way to repeatedly try to find a Planeswalker and put it into your hand while also filling your graveyard for Muldrotha. Kaya's Ghostform can reanimate when the enchanted Planeswalker/creature dies or is exiled. Interplanar Beacon is more budget color fixing for Planeswalkers.

Garmads on Grothama, The Girthy One

Dr3vvn45ty I can appreciate that. In my play testing I found that you are correct about the Tower. I wanted to run effects that would benefit from having half my library in my hand like Myojin of Life's Web , Inner Calm, Outer Strength , and Scent of Ivy , but in the end there were not enough of these benefits and Kruphix, God of Horizons would be a better commander for that anyway due to blue.

This is my decklist at the moment, and I would appreciate your feedback on what are often dead cards in your view (I have not been able to play against real opponents yet). Please keep in mind that I am not playing the infinite mana combos, so my goal is to stomp face with a backup Psychosis Crawler for pesty Spore Frog shenanigans in my play group.
