Stinging Shot Discussion

Wow those cards were never on my radar. They are all really good cards. Vizkopa Guildmage is not that fast.

Valduk, Keeper of the Flame is fast. Voltron with Enchantment cards ones that care about power mostly.

I don't remember seeing a Viridian Longbow he uses lots of fight style cards.

Stinging Shot is in there because there are a few flying decks running around and it has cycling.

I put Darksteel Pendant in my Krosan Warchief deck and I love it, so I'll add it here.

Ulamog's Crusher is so good I should put it in every deck.

I like the first strike idea but he uses combat tricks with Vine Mare as well. Vine Mare is probably the hardest one to beat. The ways I've beaten him when he has Vine Mare was outlasting him until he was top decking.

Valduk, Keeper of the Flame I can beat with my Satyr Enchanter deck. But in the other match ups I win if I can make him get to top deck mode again.

I'm gonna add the ramp cards you suggested including some of the removal you suggested. Do you have any other suggestions?

Also what's your thoughts on blood rush effects like Rubblebelt Maaka

Bloodfire Infusion , Flame Slash , possibly Lava Storm , Martyr of Ashes , Sandstorm , Hush , Multani's Decree and possibly Swirling Sandstorm could act as hate against your mainly voltron opponents. Don't overload your deck with these though.

Unfortunatly, most of this also hurts you.

I would cut two lands for Kodama's Reach and Cultivate .

Darksteel Pendant can help you find what your looking for.

Does the soulblade player use Viridian Longbow ?

How fast is Vizkopa Guildmage ?

If Longbow becomes a problem, I would recomend somthing versatile like Crushing Canopy .

Monarch cards could be good, but Valduk is pretty punishing on monarch cards.

Ulamog's Crusher is the biggest beater in PDH, so he could find his way in here if you wanted.

How fast is Valduk?

Would some more combat tricks (First strike) get a Vine Mare mid combat?

What flying creature is the Stinging Shot mainly in there for?

Sorry for the unorganized thoughts, hope this helps! :)

Replaced Stinging Shot with Damping Sphere in sideboard.

Grubbernaut, Stinging Shot over Scattershot Archer was a meta call. There aren't any Delver decks in my group, but there is Orzhov Mimic aggro with a bunch of fliers with 2+ toughness, and a Golgari dredge/delve list that employs Sultai Scavenger.

+1 Merfolk Mistbinder, +1/+2Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca, +2 Merfolk Branchwalker, +3Silvergill Adept, +3 Blossoming Defense, -1 Deeproot Champion, -1 Verdurous Gearhulk, -2 Beneath the Sands, -4 Enter the Unknown, -1 Strength of the Pack, -2 Stinging Shot, -4 Evolving Wilds, +4 Botanical Sanctum, +1 Hashep Oasis, lowering the Forest count while raising the Island count, and cutting down to 22 land would be my suggestion.

Ok, so at this point I have 9 things to remove from the deck, due to there not being enough space for the more important cards

1 Stinging Shot

2 Shamanic Revelation

3 Maybe Druids' Repository

4 Fume Spitter

5 Rendclaw Trow

6 Spinebiter

7 Chord of Calling

8 Juvenile Gloomwidow

9 Rot Wolf

Now if there are any different/more cards I should replace then let me know but I have a question about the ramp cards. So I know I am supposed to have around 8 but what counts as ramp? The list that I have is:

1 Commander's Sphere

2 Golgari Cluestone

3 Golgari Signet

4 Golgari Keyrune

5 Sol Ring

6 Devoted Druid (Also used for my combo with Quillspike

Now the two I have more questions about

7 Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip

8 Druids' Repository

So for the last two, do they count? I would assume so but I am not 100% sure. Seriously any help that anyone might have would be awesome. I would like to buy this deck to play at my card shop. On tuesdays they have a casual EDH night. So anything that might improve this deck would be awesome. (While staying on an under $200 budget)

audiofission,

Thank you for your suggestions! I've been thinking about adding Ruthless Sniper for a while, but now that I have Key to the City, it makes the Sniper that much better. I like the idea of Stinging Shot as a sideboard option at least.

As for Trespasser's Curse, I do have a friend at my local FNM who has a scary token deck (like, 80 humans levels of scary). I do see your point about creature deterrence, but let's play a little game of "devil's advocate": perhaps the opposite would happen, and that people with creature-based decks would be encouraged to cast creatures more often to try to overwhelm me. I might keep them in for now, but your point is completely valid and well received. Thanks again!
