Tasseled Dromedary Discussion
7 months ago
Hey i24, thanks for the suggestions. Personally I am not a big fan of the original vanilla creatures like Yoked Ox, Tasseled Dromedary and such... I would like them to bring something extra to the battlefirld besides just being fat.
Do you think there are still cards which you might cut?

As Grunyarth said, both Yoked Ox and Tasseled Dromedary are great.In my own Doran deck (Doran's Gonna Get Your Head Kicked In) I play both of them, and also Disowned Ancestor, Lagonna-Band Trailblazer and Nyx-Fleece Ram.
Although similar, I think Grizzled Leotau is not as good as the rest because it's mana cost is pretty specific, but it's nice too.
I don't think Sapling of Colfenor is very useful because there are about 25 other creatures in your deck so once in 4 turns, you gain about 3 life and draw a card. Without this ability, it's "just" a 5/5 indestructible, but when you practically can cast a 4/4 in turn 1, sapling is quite useless.
Rhox Faithmender is awesome.

Nice deck, upvoted!
Skinshifter is a must-have for any Doran deck.
If you are into life gaining, Proper Burial's the card.
For more offers, please check out my Doran deck:

Reclaim is quite a bad card, and you certainly don't want 4 of this kind of effect. I would play Renegade Rallier instead, the card is way better and also helps with recursion (not Doran, but everthing else). Unfortunately, it doesn't work well without fetchlands. Also, Noxious Revival is strictly better than Reclaim, but still not a card that i would want in my deck.
Further, 17 creatures seems like a low number. Sure, Lingering Souls and Commune with the Gods kind of count, but with cards like Tower Defense you really want multiple creatures on the board at all times. I would absolutely play 2-3 more Yoked Ox / Tasseled Dromedary, and probably 1-2 Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim. If your budget allows it, Spellskite would be another great addition, since it's 0/4 without defender, protects your important synergy cards, and disrupts several decks like Bogles and Infect. My preferred creature count would be 20-25.
Your current list is extremely light on disruption, and the only effect you have, Languish, hurts yourself quite a bit (only 6 of your creatures survive without help). It would be much better to have an effect that leaves your 4 toughness creatures alive (Drown in Sorrow?), or just play spot removal like Fatal Push, Path to Exile or Abrupt Decay. A flexible card like Collective Brutality would also be great, and escalate gives you a nice way to make use of redundant copies of Doran and Assault Formation.
For your sideboard i recommend Eidolon of Rhetoric, Duress, Lost Legacy, Fragmentize, Night of Souls' Betrayal and Rest in Peace (or some other graveyard hate).

I love this deck. it's probably possible to make a fairly budget version, which I love even more :p . With the number of 'anthem' type effects and aggro approach you could probably do with some cheaper creatures regardless - Tasseled Dromedary and the like. There are loads of 1 white mana 0/4s that would make for a very interesting and more consistent turn 3 attack. other nice buffs like Shield Wall would also work well with this. some other plain old walls would also work well with an 'early game' approach if you threw in a little more 'defender' removing stuff. Things like Abzan Beastmaster could help you keep some cards in hand. If you're liking the life gain, Angelic Chorus and maybe even Genju of the Fields could be interesting. Colfenor's Urn seems like it would be worth having. Diamond Valley in an emergency, Proper Burial, maybe with Fruit of the First Tree. If you need tokens, Korozda Guildmage's your gal. Scourge of Skola Vale, Sight of the Scalelords, Sentinel, Sworn Defender, Traproot Kami, and Tree of Redemption could also be fun :)

Budget Friendly Decks:
Talrand, The Sky Summoner: simply fill with counters and other instant and/or sorceries and attack with your drake army. Runechanter's Pike is a good addition as well as Bident of Thassa/Coastal Piracy.
Purphoros, God of the Forge: Have to second this one as I main this. any token spell makes quick work on your opponents. Goblins have the most synergy simply for things like Skirk Prospector, Goblin Recruiter, Goblin Matron, ect. In other words goblins offer tutors for other goblins and are also very prolific.
Karametra, God of Harvests: She is actually pretty darn fun. I built mine quasi-group hug with Heartwood Storyteller, Rites of Flourishing, and Horn of Greed simply for extra card draw and the latter we will abuse to no end. She flies under the radar until your Llanowar Elves and whatnot produce 20+ lands... She also works great as a Landfall general but I wouldn't focus on it. Oh! and she works great with Panglacial Wurm; no one expects a 9/5 trample to get whipped out of nowhere simply for casting Llanowar Elves.
Zada, Hedron Grinder: goblin tribal. All you have to do is throw out a bunch of goblins, cast a cheap cantrip or two (like Accelerate and/or Balduvian Rage) on Zada and in no time you'll have 20+ 26/26 trample, haste goblins and more cards than you know what to do with in hand.
Doran, the Siege Tower: Can be built several ways: goodstuff (albeit more expensive), treefolk tribal (not my cup of tea, very limited), or big butts attack. The latter can be done easily on a budget using cards like Yoked Ox or Tasseled Dromedary. Doran himself is about ~$10 but that can be the most expensive card in the deck.
Edric, Spymaster of Trest: I feel dirty suggesting this one. Add in mana dorks, cheap evasive weenies like Scryb Sprites or Gudul Lurker. Ideally skip all the 2-3 drops, the first 2 turns you want to drop 1 drops so on turn three when Edric comes out you can attack to net cards. As mentioned earlier with Talrand, Coastal Piracy/Bident of Thassa act as Edric replacements. Most people have caught on to his shenanigans by now. You could over time upgrade him too adding in extra turn spells and ways to return them to your hand (like via Eternal Witness).

alot of 2 drops and no draw power, id reccomened Thraben Inspector as he is a human that "draws a card" or even better Bygone Bishop would get alot of triggers. the good thing about clues in this deck is that you can leave mana open for combat trick and it you dont need it you can just draw a card insted, (Root Out for sideboard also). id drop Odric, Lunarch Marshal he doesn't shine to his full potential here since rally effect eveyone. Lone Rider Flip could possibly get used but im not sure, Expedition Envoy is shit late game espicaly since you rally triggers wont win you much in the late game like Tajuru Warcaller or somthing would, 3 is just too many for somthing of its caliber. as for land you should be running Ally Encampment, Fortified Village, Tranquil Expanse ect. evoling wilds is bad unless you are desperate for landfall triggers. personaly im not a fan of Oath of Ajani but thats up to you. Nahiri's Machinations isnt very good, with you mana curve you are trying to go wide and with you biggest creature other than 1x Sigarda has 3 attack, there is no point when they could drop a Tasseled Dromedary and it renders it usless

MagicalHacker: Should I attempt to squeeze in Guiltfeeder? What's funny with him in a Doran deck is he deals double damage, once if he isn't blocked depending on how many cards are in someone's GY and then 4 damage due to Doran's ability. Not the greatest early game but can itself be a finisher. I've NO idea what to take out though. Spidersilk Armor?
Grizzled Leotau: Vanilla
Disowned Ancestor: vanilla
