Survival of the Fittest Discussion

CaptainKraw on Xenagos: Party in a Can

6 days ago

Hey there Brother!

So I have the extra dorks for things like Survival of the Fittest, Natural Order and Fauna Shaman. I think doubling up like that is just good business.

I don't use enchantments like Warstorm Surge because they are a little slow, and I have no guarantee they will stick around. I personally try not to have a turn where I play something at that cmc and then pass. I try to have my top-end be beaters that also have decent value effects to fill that void. Terror of the Peaks is pretty good for that; it's kind of just a better Warstorm honestly. I might have to try it out.

If it works for you though, that's awesome. Xenagos can honestly run a lot of stuff, as long as beaters exist. I saw Garruks Uprising in your list, have you used it much? It's something I'm probably going to pick it up here soon.

My meta is about the same as yours it sounds. We normally play at decently high level, but have both higher and lower level decks.

Yeah buddy, it's always good to chat with fellow Xenabros. Keep in touch, let me know of any wild, new, outlandish shit you come up with!

Wow what a cool looking Primer. Solid deck, you did an absolutely great job! I'm a big Elf tribal fan, because Elves where my first deck ever.

Cool cards that I personally enjoyed playing:

This deck looks already pretty strong, if you want to play on a cEDH table, you just should do some small adjustments:

I played elves in almost every format and cool combo from modern was: Cloudstone Curio + Heritage Druid + Nettle Sentinel = infinite mana or with something like Elvish Visionary or Beast Whisperer you can also draw your entire deck if you want

I really like the land suggestions. I feel Emergence Zone just has added synergy with Titania, Protector of Argoth as well as only being one colorless to activate. I haven't found it to be much of an issue.

I am definitely going to drop Field of the Dead and Fabled Passage in. I have been meaning to do it. As well Yavimaya Hollow.

I have tested with Avenger of Zendikar and personally think it is does not synergize well. The draw potential is there, but I haven't found much problems with draw.

Abundance and Sylvan Library is very potent. While drawing a bunch of cards is nice, controlling your draws has more value in my own experiences.

I like Survival of the Fittest a lot. I built around it mostly due to budget restraints, but it will most likely be the cherry for this deck.

Thank for you the suggestions for things I overlooked. Nice meeting a fellow Azusa player.

Hi Azusa lost but Found, I'm Azusa, Lost but woke

Winding Canyons > Emergence zone IMO , plus it's reserved list

Yavimaya Hollow - Protection, plus it's reserved list

Field of the Dead - Add this, now

Sanctum of Ugin - Works nicely to find a big eldrazi without losing tempo. I use it in my build after an All is Dust or Ugin to find my Kozilek for card draw.

Greenwarden of Murasa/Seasons Past > Restock. They both cost 1 more, but GW is tutorable via T&N while SP can return several cards at once (don't forget, lands are 0 CMC)

Fabled Passage > Evolving wilds

Tireless Tracker - Decent card draw

I notice you run the Slyvan Library/Abundance synergy, how has that been working for you? Same with Thespian Depths synergy.

Elixer of immortality seems weak. If you're using it as Anti-grave hate, why not just add Survival of the Fittest to discard a creature, find Kozilek, discard kozilek, shuffle library and find creature?

Perilous vault is just Eh, Ugin already does the job and All is dust is another good one. I feel a third wipe isn't needed? I know we lack removal in green, but still.

Craterhoof is good in a tokens deck primarily. You say you make tokens, but don't add Avenger of Zendikar or Regal Force? T&N Avenger + Force = Card draw but if you had a haste outlet, then Avenger + Craterhoof = GG. If not the avenger, then the regal force for card draw?

+1 You gave me the idea to possibly run Rishadan Port, I like that

ScionLocke Thanks for taking a look at the deck! I agree, I probably need a few more board wipes, as they can actually be more beneficial to me in the long run of getting keywords into the graveyard.

I'm in the process of ordering a few more upgrades for this deck, specifically Greater Good and Survival of the Fittest, but I'll try to incorporate more wipe mechanics while I'm messing around with the deck.

Hey Last_Laugh, thanks for checking in periodically. With Cabal Coffers, Survival of the Fittest, and Gilded Drake in I'm not too worried about $50. But, while I'm pretty sure I have a spare copy of Copy Artifact lying around here somewhere, I'm actually supper happy with the changes to the deck as is. Adding the enchantment creatures has definitely streamlined the deck a pretty significant amount. I'll try playtesting it though to see if I can try to find a spot for it. I really do appreciate your suggestions though. Thank you so much!

If you wanted discard, Fauna Shaman and Survival of the Fittest seem good.

Bane of Progress > back to nature

Lmk if you want further suggestions.
