Survival of the Fittest Discussion

OTBL on Little bit of everything of elfs

Sylvan Library isn't in it cuz I never knew about the card lol. Survival of the Fittest little bit out of my budget. I like your suggestions over all I will look into adding most of them. Thank you for your input.

Hi OTBL, I've seen your post and like a lot your list. My suggestion is Opposition that with Prophet of Kruphix can do a lot of things. Mystic Speculation + Baral, Chief of Compliance to furter dig you deck and/or Scroll Rack. With all of this creatures Earthcraft + Intruder Alarm + Venser, Shaper Savant you go infinite mana, they go even alone exept for alarm. And I think Cloudstone Curio may fit there. For the cuts you know your playgroup so I dont know what to cut. One question.... where are Sylvan Library and Survival of the Fittest man?? +1 for me!

i would also throw in a Dryad Arbor, its risky because of board wraths, but you can Green Sun's Zenith on turn 1 for it to cast omnath on turn 2. and you can use it as fodder for Survival of the Fittest it's a great spot to add extra utility to your deck. it also lets your Craterhoof Behemoth for 1 more by fetching a land, and worst case lets you sac it rather than something better for Grave Pact like effects.

TheDarkSlayer21 on Mimeoplasm ETB

Fauna Shaman, Survival of the Fittest, Buried Alive and Intuition are pretty much MUST HAVES for this type of deck.

Rune-Scarred Demon, Acidic Slime, Terastodon, Woodfall Primus, Duplicant and Eternal Witness are good ETB triggers.

Hermit Druid and Mirror-Mad Phantasm can easily get a lot of cards in your graveyard.

I like running Monastery Siege, Ancient Excavation, Compulsive Research, Forbidden Alchemy, Frantic Search, and Thirst for Knowledge for draw/discarding

would also recommend running a Homeward Path in case people steal your stuff from your graveyard.

Sheoldred, Whispering One, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, and Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger are powerful cards on their own.

Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, Spinebiter and Putrefax can be extremely deadly.

I would also recommend adding in a few more board wipes, specifically Life's Finale.

If you need more suggestions, this is the deck that i made for the mimeoplasm

Dr.Rossenstein on Nightmare Riku

laserdisque,

Boundless Realms was added to help me thin out the deck, for when I couldn't get the infinite mana combos to go online, but I needed to thin out my deck. Having played both with it and against it, I can say that it gets ridiculous with Fork effects and a field full of basics!

Survival of the Fittest is appealing, albeit difficult (for me) to find. Fauna Shaman crossed my mind as an alternative that was easier to find (both for purchase, and in terms of tutoring).

Denying Wind was added as a response to my local meta, which features a lot of combo-heavy decks (hence how this little monster came to be...). Jester's Cap is an alternative I hadn't considered, but I'm more hesitant to add it, due to its inability to be copied by Riku, and lack of artifact tutoring in the current list.

Thank you for your suggestions! Nice to see that this is getting so much feedback!

Since you already have infinite mana combos in the deck perhaps you could cut Boundless Realms. Survival of the Fittest would be a good addition. Denying Wind seems a bit mana intensive as well. What about Jester's Cap?
