Paeldroth on Endless Forms Most Beautiful: Vadrok EDH [PRIMER]

Oh snap. You're right about Taurean Mauler. That sucks. I like Aquamoeba in general because it's a free, low-cmc discard outlet. But I suppose Cephalid Inkshrouder achieves that as well!

Paeldroth: Thanks! Glad I could help with the budget section.

Of those creatures, the only one I'd potentially run is Tectonic Giant. The issue is that you want low-CMC, or a bit more... punch than something like Aquamoeba grants. Also, Taurean Mauler is a human, so it can't be mutated onto :(

Some other creatures I've tinkered with: Wake Thrasher, Cephalid Inkshrouder, Dragonlord Ojutai, Adanto Vanguard...

Daedalus19876 I appreciate the addition of the budget section! As suggested, I'm going to look into Consecrated Sphinx. Thoughts on the following critters for mutations? Pristine Skywise, Tectonic Giant, Treasonous Ogre, Taurean Mauler, Aquamoeba, Zetalpa, Primal Dawn?

improvements to the mana base will help this be more competitive. However, lowering the curve would also do wonders. Have you considered using changelings? They still count as scarecrows but they're no where near as cool. Taurean Mauler, Unsettled Mariner, Mirror Entity, Changeling Outcast are all fairly useful and become a 3 mana Vindicate with your commander out.

I like the unique take of using changeling to get reductions from the eminence keyword and then trying to get some fun payoffs from lords. That said with 16 changelings, including Amoeboid Changeling and Mirror Entity and 28 pay off cards. I feel like you are forcing a lot of "lords" into a deck where it doesn't really matter.

Some of the lords I would remove because there aren't worth the slot for the small effect on a few changelings. Cloudshredder Sliver, Drogskol Captain, Lord of the Unreal, and Lovisa Coldeyes. Most of your changelings are small and giving them a small bump is P/T and haste or hexproof isn't worth forcing these cards into the deck.

Sliver Overlord, Realm-Cloaked Giant, and Thundercloud Shaman are on my maybe list because they are a bit more situational. Are you going to spend 3 mana to search for a changeling to get an effect? Do you want to wrath away your dragons and leave a team of small giants? Not sure how often these show up.

Changeling to think about including are Taurean Mauler and Chameleon Colossus, you have enough ETB trigger that Birthing Boughs might even be good.

Other payoff cards to think about Oona's Blackguard, Rage Forger, Shared Animosity, The Circle of Loyalty, Distant Melody, Forerunner of the Coalition, Riptide Director , and Necromancer's Covenant

DRmagic2017 on Yet Another Edgar Markov Deck

Hello! I have some suggestions. Boost: Metallic Mimic and/or Adaptive Automaton. Token generators: Legion's Landing  Flip, Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Sorin, Solemn Visitor. Creatures: Taurean Mauler, Vona, Butcher of Magan. "Plan 'B'" (works with life-gaining): Aetherflux Reservoir (in this case True Conviction would be a nice addition too). Tribal artifact: Blade of the Bloodchief. Card advantage/draw/tutor: Sensei's Divining Top, Skullclamp, Castle Locthwain, Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Tutor. Good luck in brewing!

You can cheat playing Deathbellow War Cry with Wildfire Eternal or Galvanoth + scry tactics. You can replay it later for little less with Sins of the Past. That being said, I'm not entirely sure that all the targets in the deck are worth it, particularly Firesong and Sunspeaker and Blaze Commando because I there doesn't seem to be enough burn from instants and sorceries to fully take advantage of them. Perhaps you can replace them with more copies of Boros Reckoner, Taurean Mauler, or Graveshifter? Hope this helps.

Spellgorger Weird seems out of place.
what about Dwarven Miner or Goblin Ruinblaster or Orcish Settlers or Detritivore or Goblin Settler?

if you like the +1+1 counters there is always Taurean Mauler
