Sylvan Basilisk Discussion

@lilgiantrobot This is fantastic! I understand the importance of Engulfing Slagwurm/Sylvan Basilisk now. Between them and Nacatl War-Pride(which is a fantastic find by the way, thank you) the deck is starting to be more cohesive. Instead of only relying on Kamahl, Fist of Krosa I can now comfortably add in Jolrael, Empress of Beasts, Natural Affinity and Nature's Revolt.
I'm going to try to revise the deck later today and look at it again from a new perspective. I think there's a lot of potential here :-)

@MrMeowser Its the power. The problem with using say Ambush Viper over Engulfing Slagwurm or Sylvan Basilisk (I said Cockatrice before and thats a bad choice since it flies) is that the Viper can only assign two points of damage, so it will only destroy two creatures. The Wurm/SB wording is important since it doesn't have anything to do with combat damage, just whether or not the creature was blocked. Slagwurm also have the nice bonus of gaining you a ton of life.
I threw up my list on another site yesterday and got a terrific recommendation I'll share here: Nacatl War-Pride. If enemy lands are animated its a one-card combo since it makes all the lands block a 3/3, and they're big enough to kill Jolrael's animated lands too!

Wizard Mentor needs little explanation. Professor Flitwick perhaps!
You could include some spiders from the Forbidden Forest.
Courser of Kruphix probably does a good Firenze.
Also can include a sphinx since one appeared in the third task of the Tri-wizard Tournament.
Mindslaver = Imperious Curse
There might be one or two werewolves that would fit Lupin's character.
Dazzling Reflection looks a little bit like a patronus.
Razor Hippogriff = Buckbeak!
Young Pyromancer has wonderful red hair which may remind you of any member of a certain family.
Prodigal Sorcerer would probably fit nicely as a character. The new version could be Harry maybe, or the old version could be ... I'm not sure.
Dragon Egg = Norbert the Norwegian Ridgeback!
Cabal Interrogator could be someone like Snape or Voldemort who can use Legilimancy.
Fiend of the Shadows looks like it might fit for Voldemort. Or something with undying.
Include a phoenix to represent Fawkes?
Mirror Gallery would fit for the final room in Philosopher's Stone.
I'm sure someone can come up with a good card to represent Dobby.

Unless Deathmist Raptor comes with the deck, it doesn't look like you run enough morphs/manifests to make it worth buying... I'd suggest a (cheaper) Basilisk (there are several, and I'm not sure which is best)... perhaps Sylvan Basilisk, Turntimber Basilisk or Lowland Basilisk, or a Cockatrice, such as Fleetfeather Cockatrice
