Summoner's Pact Discussion

Most of the time it's issue with getting combo pieces. I've added Summoner's Pact and see how it goes.

sylvannos on BBE in modern Elves?

The problem with Bloodbraid Elf in Elves is that you don't really cascade into anything exciting. Best case scenario? You hit Elvish Archdruid or Shaman of the Pack. What's more likely to happen? You cascade into Llanowar Elves/Nettle Sentinel or some other mana dork.

I'd rather use Summoner's Pact, Collected Company, Chord of Calling, Lead the Stampede, a strong artifact (Staff of Domination for instance), or a planeswalker.

xyr0s on Tireless Landfall

It's not that I can't see having 3 mana in turn 2 is nice, and only possible with birds. But that is the only time where Birds of Paradise is preferable to land. Topdecking the parrots a couple of turns later, and it's a horrible card (where a land instead would be good, since it would trigger landfall).

The problem with Steppe Lynx is that it doesn't have evasion in any way, and I doubt that you can keep the pressure up with landfall (if nothing else, you run out of lands at some point). And that means opposing mana dorks, pyromancer tokens, and other rabble is going to chump block your Steppe Lynx and tell it to have a snickers, until it has cooled down, and is 0/1 or 2/3. Of course Rhonas the Indomitable can give it trample, but by the time you can do that, you have played most of your lands, and we're back with to snickers-munching lynx. But maybe it's really down to you seeing landfall as a midrange-strategy, and I'm considering it more of a creature-combo-strategy, playing a bit like infect (fast, very big creature, that stops being big at all pretty fast). It's fairly easy to build 8 power or so on a Steppe Lynx, and Rite of Consumption is one way of getting something out of the overgrown cat. If you don't go for a couple of very burst-y turns, I don't think Steppe Lynx is a good card, though.

Oh, and you could also use Tolaria West. It can tutor up Summoner's Pact, which can then find the creature you really want to find (as long as it's green creature). It can also find any utility lands you might want.

Rhonas the Indomitable doesn't really connect with the rest of your deck, maybe could be exchanged for a Summoner's Pact?

You also should have Ghost Quarter somewhere mainboard, since you can target your own Flagstones of Trokair with it, and that would be double landfall right there (and you can tutor both lands up with Primeval Titan). Not sure you have enough lands, actually - ramp decks often have a bit more than this, because it is a special kind of fail to spend cards on ramping, and then simply not hitting your regular land drops at the same time (it means you have roughly the same amount of mana as other decks do, but you spend mana and cards getting it).

You could also drop the Birds of Paradise in favor of some more Steppe Lynx and maybe something like Rite of Consumption? Just a single copy of the last one should do, for those occasions where you've managed to build a truly big creature, and could use it to kill, of it wasn't for all opponents blockers.

Looks like a funny deck, not completely unlike the amulet-titan deck, but not quite like it either.

if you're going for a Hive Mind win, why not include the pacts as well? (Intervention Pact, Pact of Negation, Summoner's Pact)

Emzed on Enduring Renewal Combo

Summoner's Pact won't help you, it only searches for green creatures.
I like your concept, but you should give your tutors some more choices to search up. If you already have Enduring Renewal in hand (or maybe even multiples), Idyllic Tutor and Dimir House Guard have nothing to do. If you had 1-2 other cards they could search for in your deck, you'd be giving yourself more options. What about single copies of Worship and Cast Out? Both are 4cmc enchantments that can help you out of bad situations. Ranger of Eos is a 4-drop that can find you Hangarback Walker or Ballista.
Similarly, at 2cmc you could add Spreading Seas and Journey to Nowhere to be found by Muddle or Idyllic Tutor.

PartialPride on Competitive Food Chain Prossh

3 weeks ago

DavidSurita it's a good thought, but ultimately I think they are a little too narrow to include in the deck. If I was having trouble reaching Prossh I'd sooner run more two-mana mana dorks like Devoted Druid or Sylvan Caryatid which come down on turn two, sac for plus they generate at least 1 extra mana. This is much more useful in other scenarios where I can't combo or need mana to disrupt someone else's combo as well. I think the best way to be reaching Prossh is to rely on tutor chains. Things like Imperial Recruiter into Goblin Matron into Reckless Bushwhacker, or any mana dork plus Summoner's Pact for Eternal Witness then Summoner's Pact again should give you more than enough mana to cast Prossh reliably. And if you can't draw those chains naturally, I think it is perfectly acceptable to tutor for Imperial Recruiter or Summoner's Pact in order to start the chain (IF you already have/or have another way to get Food Chain and a win con).

Antem, Ramunap Excavator is a great call. I love the added synergy with Summoner's Pact and Green Sun's Zenith. Def gonna pick one up and slide it in over maybe Fathom Feeder, what do you think?
