Tanglesap Discussion

ruy343 on how to deal with people ...

kidimp That's all well and good, but in those games where he doesn't draw a flyer, you don't get to use it. Card-for-card, choosing to put another threat onto the board in this instance, is a better use of a deck slot. If he kills your dude, so what? You killed his too!

One easy (budget-friendly) way to make this "trade" uneven is to have creatures with trample (either with dudes that have trample ( Aggressive Mammoth ?) or a combat trick like Tread Upon or Somberwald Alpha 's activated ability) - even if you die, excess combat damage is dealt to the opponent, so you still got something extra out of it. (Note: there are one-sided tricks like Tanglesap that make this super fun.)

Another way to deal with this is to put out mid-sized creatures (green has plenty) that you can direct to damage the deathtoucher either through fight abilities or through a card like Lure .

What I'm trying to say is that Plummet, while a viable limited sideboard card, probably isn't super strong in your matchup. Were I in your shoes, I would trade out a few mana dorks and plummet for a card draw engine and a mid-level threat or two. a great budget option for an early threat is Sauroform Hybrid , which would couple together best with Colossal Majesty.

Take a look at my other decks if you like the kind of budget advice I give :)

You won't have to break your bank for a Blightsteel Colossus then, but the other invincible stuff I linked shouldn't be fun breakers.. i thought of another thing to help Thantis : Dolmen Gate or Winds of Qal Sisma to make all of your creatures invicible for a turn, or maybe Tanglesap + Nylea, God of the Hunt

Tangle can leave you an open door to the an opponent face

i've never seen this commander but I'm starting to really like it !

ragnaerok, Coiling Oracle Proved to be helpful in many situations but I cut Woodland Changeling as it was only a 2/2 with no evasion taking up a valuable slot. I made Tanglesap a 2 of as I will most likely draw it by the time it can be used to close out a game, and Game-Trail Changeling is a 2 of, in place of Woodland Changeling

Thanks ragnaerok! I'm glad the sideboard is good to go I was worried about that most. Those seem like pretty good pretty good ideas, Tanglesap sounds great because if there are a lot of unfavorable blocks, I could almost pull off a one sided board wipe. I think cutting Coiling Oracle would be best because it's x4 less blue symbols I need for creatures and I think I could cut one fog so that I could have 3 Tanglesap and 2 Game-Trail Changelings. I like the Game-Trail Changelings because they're a nice addition to a fairly low curve.

You can probably try using Tanglesap if you cut Sakura-Tribe Elder or Coiling Oracle and go all aurochs and maybe adding Game-Trail Changeling.

Sideboard looks pretty solid.

I didn't know Tanglesap existed. That's perfect, I'll pick one up

Love the theme idea. You think Tanglesap could work here as a one sided Fog?

I made a similar deck You can't deal damage to me :)!, I would recommend adding spells that counter all damage for a turn like Vine Snare,Winds of Qal Sisma,Respite,Tanglesap,or Defend the Hearth.
