Tana, the Bloodsower Discussion

1empyrean on Dune-Brood Mutate

1 week ago

I've been fiddling around with 4 color mutate ideas for a while now, though my plan was to use some combination of partner commanders. For these colors, you could use Tana, the Bloodsower as your main mutate target, which os similar to Dune-brood, but also has trample. Throw in Ravos, Soultender (definitely not a budget card, though) for always available recursion for your mutate creatures, and the mutates could just keep coming.

Just something to consider since the deck seems off to a good start.

With enchantment creatures and now mutate, I could see some sort of weird voltron deck around Tana, the Bloodsower/Umori, the Collector/Ravos, Soultender

SirHipHopHippo on The Suicide Squad (Tana Just Watches)

goodair Teshar is pretty decent, there are 22 Historic spells in the deck including the commanders. Teshar is a great backup for when Ravos has been destroyed late game.

With enough mana you can hold up Teshar in your hand and then for 4 cast it, play any historic spell to get the trigger and bring back Ball Lightning or Eternal Witness.

It also somewhat gives Tana, the Bloodsower a use.

Partner commanders are powerful, and often free your deck's ability to do more than a single commander deck. Companions give decks restrictions on what cards they can run. By running both it limits your deck even more, since most partner pairings don't work with the companion requirements.

Yorion, Sky Nomad and Lutri, the Spellchaser straight up can't be run as companions, and Jegantha, the Wellspring won't work since it requires five colors, and no partner pairing currently allows for it. No partner pairing also allows for Lurrus of the Dream-Den. Gyruda, Doom of Depths also can't be run, since no partners are both even cmc and have black in their color identity. Kaheera, the Orphanguard also can't work, since the types aren't found on partners that can be run together.

That leaves only 4 total companions theoretically able to be run. Obosh, the Preypiercer, Zirda, the Dawnwaker, Keruga, the Macrosage, and Umori, the Collector.

Now, what lists are now able to be run?

Wow, that only took a half hour longer to write up than expected.

Which of these would you want to make, if any, and how would you make them?

beets on Horrible Djinn Tribal

update: played a few one-on-ones against an Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker and Tana, the Bloodsower deck. won 3 out of 4 games and had an absolute BLAST. none of my cards were dead draws. cannot think of anything i would change at this time. here's to hoping wizards prints some more djinns. hopefully white djinns. that cost less than .

Braingamer on Naya Token - All the tokens

1 month ago

I actually like Tana, the Bloodsower and Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder as commanders for naya token strategies. but if you do this I would include some cards like Bravado and Betrothed of Fire also Ohran Frostfang is a really good card.

king-saproling on Naya Token - All the tokens

1 month ago

I know your heart might be set on Rith, but Tana, the Bloodsower and Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder are great generals for this strategy. Giving Tana doublestrike while she has a Bravado effect is really powerful (her first hit makes saps, which makes her twice as big, so the second hit makes her 4x as big: exponentially increasing damage + saproling output). Here's a budget list with them if you're curious: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/wide-tall-super-budget/

These cards might catch your eye: Betrothed of Fire, Hope Against Hope, Mantle of Leadership, Fanatical Devotion, Perilous Forays, Pollenbright Wings, Storm the Citadel, Five-Alarm Fire, Keeper of Fables, Requiem Angel, Fungal Plots, Utopia Mycon, Eidolon of Countless Battles, Ivy Lane Denizen, Rapacious One, Pallid Mycoderm

Tana, the Bloodsower & Tymna the Weaver. Just keep attacking to draw and drawing into more attackers so you get to timmy harder just by timmying in the first place. Foolproof. Tana&Tymmy
