smiffdemon on Ishkanah Stuff

Hi Guint!! Here are some suggestions I think you could utilize for Ishkanah. So far it looks good!

The things we want to make sure you have in this deck are ways to activate delirium, as well as ways to activate Ish's tribal effects. Let's start with the spiders themselves~

Now onto the Delirium Mechanic. Making sure your own cards into the graveyard can seem counterproductive but a lot of things benefit from it. So first, how do we self mill?

Now for some super fun cards that benefit from a graveyard presence.

Now lets talk about Black and Green as colors in EDH. Black/Green has a few things that it needs to run undoubtedly. One of its major problems is card draw, so you're definitely going to want to auto-include Harmonize and Phyrexian Arena. I would also consider Lifecrafter's Bestiary.

Removal: Putrefy, Murder, Hero's Downfall, Abrupt Decay, Krosan Grip, Golgari Charm, Toxic Deluge, In Garruk's Wake, Acidic Slime, Beast Within. Dictate of Erebos to be used in conjunction with a sacrifice outlet like Ashnod's Altar (sac your extra tokens for mana!)

Protection: Asceticism, Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, Heroic Intervention

Tutors: Green Sun's Zenith, Diabolic Tutor, Demonic Tutor

Ramp: Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Solemn Simulacrum, Sol Ring, Explosive Vegetation, Thran Dynamo, Commander's Sphere, Golgari Signet, Cryptolith Rite, Harrow, Crop Rotation, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Yavimaya Elder.


The only other thing I want to say about your deck is that you should probably up your land count to at least 36. 30 is usually too little for most EDH decks in my experience. Unless you're going super aggro, you'll find yourself short on a lot of land drops.

If you wanted to upgrade your lands, here are some relatively inexpensive things you could add:

Golgari Rot Farm, Command Tower, Jungle Hollow, Temple of Malady, Woodland Cemetery, Overgrown Tomb, Llanowar Wastes, Tainted Wood, Grim Backwoods, Bojuka Bog, Hissing Quagmire, Temple of the False God, Drownyard Temple, Ghost Quarter, and any lands that Cycle in your colors :)

APPLE01DOJ HI. This is a question I've posted to someone else too, but I was hoping I could pick your brain as well.

I've been wanting to build a competitive modern build and feel like discard could be the way to go for me. I have a brew, Rat Heavy Discard. It's a pretty good deck in casual, but the more I try to make it competitive the less consistant it is. I realize I'm kind of forcing the rat theme. I plan on making a new rat deck for my casual ratty games, and just biting the bullet and making it an 8rack variant.

I need to pick up a bunch of the pieces, but won't be willing to shell out for Liliana of the Veil or Ensnaring Bridge. I also have the Mutavaults which would swap out for Swarmyard. I'd be willing to shell out for a better mana base too if needed. I've seen some of the budget options for Lili and the Bridge, but I was wondering how crucial they are? Also, do you think keeping my deck black/red is a good idea? In particular I was thinking of running Lightning Bolt, Kolaghan's Command and Banefire. Maybe Death Cloud.

Sorry if this comes off as rambling. Thank you for your time.

Airdraken - I have thought of Pentavus. Didn't make the list the first time around, but could be something to test if I feel like something isn't as strong as I want it to be. Crop Rotation is just a card I forgot about, probably will find its way in here. Haven't had enough time to test Animation Module yet, so stay tuned. As for Ulvenwald Mysteries and any other card with the text "nontoken creature", I feel like I don't get enough value off of it. I feel like I sacrifice tokens too often to get enough value off of those cards to run them in the list. Mindless Automaton isn't bad per se, but I feel like this list has enough effects to keep the hand full or generate pseudo-card advantage. Crystalline Crawler could be a solid include to some lists, but I haven't really felt the need for further fixing. Eldrazi Monument is definitely a solid card, so maybe it's worth a slot. I'll have to see if I can fit it. Ordeal of Nylea feels too weak for me. I think there are other cards that are more significant that I would like to run before that. Attrition is a solid removal option, but I think I may try Retribution of the Ancients before Attrition. Swarmyard is a good add-in for later, but at the time I felt like the ~$10 could be better spent on other cards.

Awesome list. I'm currently trying to make my own. and forgot to look at others lists on here before buying! Oops!

Have you thought about Pentavus ? Also i'm thinking of trying Tetravus. too doing a similar thing but only at end of turn.

Crop Rotation to find any specific land and sacs.

Animation Module How has the testing for that been going?

Have you given consideration to Ulvenwald Mysteries ? So for every non token creature that dies you'll get a clue. so you get a (2) sac clue draw a card. When you sacrifice the clue you get a 1/1. I haven't had a chance to play but

Also Mindless Automaton Could be more card draw dependent on how many counters you're getting with Mazirek. Crystalline Crawler is of the similar route but for mana.

Eldrazi Monument ?

Ordeal of Nylea i think is also super interesting. providing +1/+1 counters, a sacrifice and ramp. Attrition Golgari Germination

@kon115 Hand of the Praetors doesn't boost wither creatures; although his main attraction is dealing a poison counter to target opponent when you cast an infect creature.

$MohenjoDaro Glad you at least think it's fun, even though it's a slower version of infect. I've added a point on dealing with Melira, Sylvok Outcast and added Swarmyard to the Maybeboard. Thanks!

First off I Your breaking your rule a bit by using Silklash Spider. It has a face on its butt, its fighting a dragon, and it is a spider of behemoth size, but it is also one of the best spiders ever printed so whatever.

Here are a few suggestions for this deck Arachnogenesis, Spider Spawning, Penumbra Spider, and Swarmyard.
