Tangle Angler Discussion

Outstanding deck Sjorpha! I don't know if you're still trying to keep it up to date, but I'll still make a few suggestion for the sake of discussion and getting your opinion. My deck is also a bit more budget minded so my suggestions might also reflect that...

You are right that Behind the Scenes and skulk gives these Doran decks and alike a whole new dimension. I also thought that Vigilance could be equally powerful. Imagine being able to attack, block and then use convoke? Maybe something like Brave the Sands ?

How about Forbidding Watchtower for some land tech?

Did you notice Arboreal Grazer could be a potentially advantageous replacement or doubling for Birds of Paradise ? Bigger body and his ramp, although lost if you skip a land drop, 1) doesn't precludes you to attack, 2) survives the body and 3) he counts double to Chord of Calling .

Also would you consider Jeskai Barricade a good option to avoid a spot removal? It lets you replay Treefolk Harbinger or an eventual Arboreal Grazer . Unlike Selfless Spirit or Spellskite you can keep it in hand. And since you have 2 Assault Formation it might attack if its needed.

And what do you think of Tangle Angler ? This ugly thing could be a two turn clock alternative win con and a repeatable removal.

Looking at this one again lately for possible upgrades. I'm considering the following changes.

Out:
1x Wickerbough Elder
1x Embermaw Hellion
2x Fanatic of Xenagos
Two additional cards from the following list:

  • Forgestoker Dragon (keeping at least one)
  • Inferno Titan (keeping at least one)
  • Deadly Recluse
  • Tangle Angler
  • In:
    3x Orcish Lumberjack
    3x Fierce Empath

    The point of the changes is to get the most important elements of the deck out more quickly and reliably.

    Hi! Happy to help!

    Cut suggestions:

    Deck seems pretty solid, I guess just start cutting redundant cards. Decide weather to focus more on tokens and +1/+1 counters or infect and go from there! Good luck!

    Sure, while I agree certain redundancy in EDH is really important, that redundancy should be based on aspects of the specific build that heavily weight the board in your favor. When those areas are simply complimentary to your build, then there's a good chance there are better options available, especially as the corresponding CMC increases. To that end, here are six changes I noticed from your main and maybe board that I think would result in immediate improvements to your typical game.

    REMOVE: Reach of Branches, Gravity Well, Behind the Scenes, Abundance, Angelic Chorus and Dusk / Dawn. Each of these cards is either reactionary or situational in nature, meaning they each can be a dead draw in certain scenarios. Also, the combined CMC of these six cards is 24, so average four mana cost, which is fairly spendy for a reactionary or situational spell.

    REPLACE: Crenellated Wall, Rhox Faithmender, Eladamri's Call, Vindicate, Serra Ascendant and Tangle Angler. Instead of reactionary/situational spells, you get four creatures with a reasonable mana cost and additional utility value (flying/lifegain/early board state lead, infect/lure, double lifegain, +4 toughness pump) and an instant creature tutor and any permanent spot removal. Better yet, total CMC drops to 18, lowering your curve to an average of three mana cost per slot.

    In my opinion, this gives you better options to your typical board without losing any synergy to your design. While Reach of Branches has great synergy, having 5 mana available is going to be a huge warning sign to your opponents, and if I'm keeping 5 mana available for an instant spell, I'd much rather have a bomb like Hatred that will essentially win the game right then if my attacker is unblocked (except in this deck of course). Hope that all makes sense - and good luck with the deck, I do dig the Doran build.

    Can't believe I missed Mentor of the Meek for card draw in my Doran deck. Apparently I haven't updated my deck for a while now. My deck focuses on punishing creatures based on their power. But I have a few ideas to run by you, use them as you wish:

    Abzan Beastmaster: card draw

    Eidolon of Rhetoric: can neuter some decks and has a nice body to boot.

    Guiltfeeder: Possible evasion and can hit for 4 with Doran out. Added damage is better the longer the game goes on.

    Kami of Old Stone: I don't care for vanilla critters but this one was too good to pass up

    Marble Titan: another Meekstone v2.0

    Necroskitter: steals opponent's critters and plays nicely with Obelisk Spider and his infect friends Priests of Norn and Tangle Angler.

    Priests of Norn/Tangle Angler: See above, Also can be finishers with cards like Tower Defense ect.

    Raving Dead: testing this out. Can be brutal with cards like Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa/Behind the Scenes or after a wrath effect that targets higher powered critters. It's a Quietus Spike with legs.

    Sun Titan: recursion

    Tree of Redemption: huge with Assault Formation or a last ditch life saver.

    Noetic Scales: currently testing but probably the first thing to be cut.

    Crackdown, Retribution of the Meek, Wave of Reckoning: all higher power critter punishing cards

    My deck if you want more ideas:


    Doran's Spring: 'Tis the Season of Big Butts

    Tangle Angler, Tower Above and Witherscale Wurm come to mind.

    Nemesis Mask on a 1/1 snake makes all your guys unblockable that turn (poor little snake).

    Lignify is amazing for keeping an annoying commander off the field.

    Ditch the Krosan Verge.

    There are a lot of cards that put -1/-1 counters on your own creatures in return for something (like the Witherscale Wurm). That triggers your snake generation same as if you hit an opponent.

    I would reccomend Tower Defense and possibly Tangle Angler
