Temur Sabertooth Discussion

IATEAREPUBLICAN | Yeah I can imagine the synergies with ETB and LTB effects on Deadeye with stuff like Intruder Alarm out to be very tasty indeed. About the equipment, I really wouldn't know where to put it either, plus I'm not sure I really need it. Nice suggestion though, I use my Lightning Greaves to fill that spot anyway.
enpc | Lack of win condition | The deck doesn't really need a strict win condition to be able to close out a game, this is helped by my general being able to draw cards when you play a defender as well as the milling abilities of Wall of Lost Thoughts . You can easily set up a scenario of drawing your entire library after getting infinite mana with things such as Temur Sabertooth and Quicksilver Wall which then can be used to find your answer cards like Shaman of Forgotten Ways (and the Lightning Greaves / Crashing Drawbridge to tap him with) or infinitely flickering Wall of Lost Thoughts, thank you for the suggestion though!
In this deck, Beatdown can also be a choice. Those walls hit hard.

Another good way to do it if you are willing to be a little bit spikey is to play anything that allows for infinite recasts of a creature or spell such as Palinchron + High Tide , Temur Sabertooth + Dockside Extortionist , or Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal . Remember that you don't need to be strictly orzhov to be an extortionist, you just need either black or white.
That being said, if you want to be strictly orzhov I would suggest Tymna the Weaver + Ravos, Soultender so you can keep putting cards in your hand to keep casting and extorting. I would also suggest low cmc fliers and hard to block creature so you can keep drawing off tymna and casting more to extort more.

Testing those cards:
Actually testing the deck without the consultation package with good results. Eldritch Evolution can turn any of our mana dorks into a Temur Sabertooth to combo with Dockside Extortionist for infinite mana.

You're on food chain - Korvold, unlike Prossh doesn't feed our chain to infinite. Rather he feeds upon the sacrifice- our little goblin immortal.
Here is my decklist, if you're looking for ideas! Come on by the discord as well, we'd love to chat.

Hey, you should consider looking into using Ezuri, Claw of Progress as the General for your deck. Ezuri can be an enabler for big green ramp with mana dorks that can tap to make mana equal to their power and/or number of +1/+1 counters they have.
- Gyre Sage
- Marwyn, the Nurturer
- Viridian Joiner
- Devoted Druid : +1/+1 counters cancel out -1/-1 counters.
At combat put all the experience counters on one of these dorks and then use that dork to make mana at your second main phase or after. Use all this green mana with token mana sinks:
- Ant Queen
- Jade Mage
- Biogenic Ooze
- Sprout Swarm
- Or Temur Sabertooth to loop casting Wolfbriar Elemental , Avenger of Zendikar , Hornet Queen .
Other reasons to use Ezuri with tokens are to take more advantage of Champion of Lambholt and Sage of Hours . Lambholt can make your token army unblockable and she gets a counter whenever a token is created. She can get huge with Ezuri and tokens. Hours can give you infinite extra turns with Ezuri. All Hours needs are 5 experience counters which can be placed on him via Ezuri each combat. This lets you attack with the tokens at the extra turn and keep doing this until all your opponents are dead.

Enabling instant speed ETBs is super powerful and a ton of fun ;)
Temur Sabertooth is a must include IMO, it puts in a ton of work and is a pain in the ass for your opponents to destroy.

Temur Sabertooth still makes a difference with the Sovereign. You are correct that it doesn't allow you to use his Exert ability any faster due to summoning sickness. But it does allow you to have him untapped as a large blocker when normally you wouldn't. And that's a HUGE difference.
I've playtested this deck probably a couple dozen times now, and one of the common dilemmas I face is whether I should Exert him to get more tokens, or keep him as a blocker during the next turn cycle. Fairly often I've been unable to use his Exert ability because I've been on the defense and needed his large body to block threats. Temur Sabertooth removes that dilemma! For 3 mana on my opponent's turn, I can create some cats and get an indestructible Sabertooth, then for 3 mana on my next turn, I can re-cast Sovereign to have an enormous blocker. (Keep in mind, too, that you can first declare Sovereign as a blocker before Exerting and/or bouncing him, and as long as the blocked creature doesn't gain trample, all of its damage is still considered blocked.)
All that said, I admit that I haven't actually playtested Sabertooth, so it might not be good. My main point is that you shouldn't discount him too quickly!

Temur Sabertooth is definitely a great combo with Regal Caracal , but it wouldn't make a difference with Pride Sovereign as it takes two turns: one to use Temur Sabretooth and return it to my hand, one to cast it, then the same turn for its summoning sickness to release.
Indestructible and hexproof are perfect for all sorts of threats, and Heroic Intervention is green (which I need more of) and it affects all permanents I control! Very nice!
