Teneb, the Harvester Discussion

Hey, I agree Scion of the Ur-Dragon seems like a good Commander for your deck idea.

The Star Dragons have dies abilities this makes them quite good to repeatedly reanimate with Nim Deathmantle and sac with sac outlets such as Ashnod's Altar . Feldon of the Third Path can repeatedly make a token copy of a Dragon you put into your graveyard with Scion. The token is saced at the end this will trigger the die ability of a Star Dragon. Teneb, the Harvester has a powerful trigger, to repeatedly reanimate Dragons you put into your graveyard.

Bladewing the Risen when it ETB (enters the battlefield) can also reanimate a Dragon which you can take advantage of with Feldon (token copies ETB) or Deathmantle. Buried Alive , Faithless Looting , Animate Dead , Unburial Rites , Anger , Fauna Shaman , Genesis and Karmic Guide are some very good semi-budget support cards for a five color graveyard strategy with Dragons. To help the five color manabase I think you can just splash blue. Blue is the color that's least needed with Dragons or graveyard strategies mostly just need it for Scion.

Dragons should pick from:

Utvara Hellkite , Scourge of Kher Ridges (could be a good wipe for the board, 2x mana for ur, 4 mana to do 4 damage to each creature), Nicol Bolas (wipe someone's hand turn 6? yes, please), Hellkite Overlord (Big damage), Tyrant's Familiar (single creature killer), Scourge of Nel Toth (direct return ability), Ojutai, Soul of Winter (this is a maybe, gives vigilance), Eternal Dragon direct return ability, Dragon Mage Drops your hand into graveyard plus drawing 7 cards..risky af given it help others, Chromium, the Mutable you can actually pay 2 on ur to make him hexproof with this card..could save Ur in time of need, Bladewing the Risen this guy is weird idk if i would put it in because enter the battlefield abilities don't help Ur, Balefire Dragon fuck yes, Atarka, World Render Huge damage. low toughness, Vorosh, the Hunter 6 counters for Ur, Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire a little risky but seems to be worth it, Teneb, the Harvester yes yes yes, Silumgar, the Drifting Death give ur hexproof, Rith, the Awakener many tokens, Palladia-Mors, the Ruiner hexproof trample vigilance, O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami potential permanent killer, Numot, the Devastator destroy lands (probably should be left out), Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius draw a card, Intet, the Dreamer I think he is really good, Hellkite Tyrant could steal you a bunch of artifacts, Dragonlord Silumgar steal a creature a turn if using ur. steal a creature if putting out permanently. good for removing a particular blocker, Crosis, the Purger good against mono decks.

Panzerfire on Teneb vs Meren vs Muldrotha

So I want to build a graveyard themed deck but I'm having trouble deciding between Meren of Clan Nel Toth , Teneb, the Harvester , and Muldrotha, the Gravetide . My playgroup uses decks around 50-60% power and under $100. Who do you think I could make work better with those restrictions?

Looking for cards that can help me bring out Dragons for free. So any card that does this sort of thing, really.

I know a small list already, but I was wondering what else there is so I can try to narrow and hone in on the best cards.

Here's what I already know of that do this sort of thing, in one way or another. In no particular order, because I'm lazy.

I'm trying to stay away from graveyard tricks, so please keep those suggestions to a minimum. Thank you.

Cards I know of Show

As I said, I'm trying to stay away from Graveyard tricks but if it is cheap enough and easy to pull off, I guess it works. I'm looking to constantly grow my boardstate every turn, not try and rebuild it from scratch.

Yes I know Dragon Broodmother and Utvara Hellkite will grow the boardstate as well. I plan on including them. I just wanted to know what else I might be missing :)

Thanks! :D

Teneb, the Harvester and Taigam, Ojutai Master aren't doing your deck any good either. might i suggest commander staples such as Doubling Season and Sol Ring.

surielxv on Scion of the Ur-Dragon

Hey there. I like Scion decks so +1 from me.

I was looking over it and I was wondering how well you get by with mana ramp/fixing. I see you run more artifact ramp than i do and you seem to only run 2 ramp sorcery Farseek and Skyshroud Claim. I realize you run a lot of fetch lands which i totally agree with as i run all of them in my deck as well but i have a heavier focus on land based ramp over artifact ramp because i feel it is safer in the long run with the low amounts of land based hate in the format.

I like the comment in your description about using reanimation spells to make the most of constantly chucking dragons into the graveyard, however, i feel that you have a vastly underwhelming amount of recursion in the deck. I count only 4 sources: Unburial Rites, Animate Dead, Teneb, the Harvester and Bladewing the Risen. I would strongly suggest using more reanimation spells as i believe that you are missing out on some really good ones. Necromancy is like animate dead but for 1 more mana, though, it gives you the flexibility the cast it as an instant in a pinch. Patriarch's Bidding is fantastic for getting all of your dragons out the yard in one go, though, be mindful of using this when playing against other tribal decks. The list goes on but im not sure of what your budget for the deck is so i will post a link to my deck at the end and you can take a look at what i have in there. I think i am running about 13 reanimation sources because i do not do a lot of hard casting my dragons.

I have strong reservations against using Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund in a dragon tribal deck. I used to use him and even had a deck built around him until i ran into many instances of people stealing of cloning him and taking my board. It gets really expensive to undo that and recover so I opted to remove him.

Have you thought about using Dragon Mage? I placed him in my deck instead of Nicol Bolas. sure everyone gets to draw cards but really i use him either after a Cyclonic Rift or just when i need new cards in hand. Since i run so much reanimation spells i dont feel bad about just tossing a hand full of dragons into the yard.

Dragonlord Dromoka is amazing for protecting your dragon spells if you are hard casting them plus the lifelink is nice when running a bunch of fetches and shocks. Also consider Taigam, Ojutai Master for his anti counter ability and the rebound on removal and reanimation is very useful as well.

Just some of my thoughts and suggestions. let me know what you think and here is the link to my deck if you want to check it out and maybe leave me some of your thoughts on mine.

Maybe have Scion of the Ur-Dragon as your commander and put Teneb, the Harvester and/or Bladewing the Risen in your deck. Therefore you can copy Hellkite Igniter, put it into the graveyard, then copy, say Teneb, the Harvester to put Hellkite Igniter onto the battlefield. Yes, it is expensive (mana-wise), but it lets you run tribal dragons.

That would technically be impossible, as once damage is finalized and you die to state based actions, all of your triggers / abilities / remaining stuff on the stack vanishes into the blind eternities. So having a card that punishes an opponent after you have been removed from the game isn't something that can happen.

However, there is technically a way around it. You'd have to word it for a specific circumstance, though.


Reyhan, Spirit of Vengeance

Legendary Creature - Spirit Warrior

Vigilance

If your life total would be reduced to zero, you may instead have your life total reduced to 1. If you do, sacrifice half of your non-land permanents you control, rounded up. For each permanent sacrificed in this way, it deals damage equal to it's converted mana cost to the player who last dealt damage to you. If Reyhan, Spirit of Vengeance was sacrificed in this way, return it to the battlefield with two +1/+1 counters on it.

3/3


So, what's nice about this design is you can flood the boardstate with tokens, than sacrifice your non-token permanents. You deal mass damage while maintaining a hefty creature base. Then, because Reyhan, Spirit of Vengeance is returned to the battlefield, if another opponent attempts to strike you down with something like a Shock, you can strike back again... and again... and again.

Yes, you progressively lose your board, but you stay in the game long enough to at least make a massive impact on who will remain. Even if you do end up losing, you dealt a huge finishing blow in the form of an epic Abzan retaliation.

Make a new Teneb, the Harvester.
