Trygon Predator Discussion

Well, not sure just how common it is or isn't, but I will side it in if I play the matchup. So, do you have any suggestions for more SB options? I can probably go for removing the Trygon Predators on the board for something else. Sinkhole perhaps.

I like shard less delver. Also does Trygon Predator see limited play in legacy on SB more specifically?

I like the deck! A couple of cards that I threw into my Riku deck from looking at this-

Trygon Predator You're right, this is an auto-include!

Frontier Siege Not sure why I didn't notice this one before, it does amazing things for casting sorcery cantrips for card draw or mana ramp. It would also help push me over the edge to be able to drop things like Hornet Queen!

If you don't want to play Exploration I have had good luck with Burgeoning. Turn 1 it is just bonkers, late game it is less helpful. It does have the added benefit of making people consider whether to play a land themselves. For me I like forcing people to second-guess themselves lol.

As for what to do about Bant... I keep a stockpile of Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast for use against control decks (really any blue deck) just to see the look on their face when I counter their counter with only a mountain open. One mana instant speed removal (or countering if you aren't afraid they will counter your counter) of Rafiq if you want it, letting you use the rest of your mana on something else.

sylvannos on what creature do you wish ...

I'd second (err...third? Fourth?) Vampire Nighthawk. The thing is, the card is completely Modern viable...if Modern didn't have Lightning Bolt. He trades with every other creature in the format and the lifegain is relevant.

My other choices are most Goblin cards (such as Goblin Chieftain), Lodestone Golem, and Trygon Predator.

Trygon Predator has that feel about it. The dissension version more so than the MM version. Slight mix of blue / green tint.

sylvannos on Legacy cards you think should ...

Force of Will so we can get rid of the stupid and arbitrary turn 4 rule.

Swords to Plowshares so we have something other than Lightning Bolt for creature removal that doesn't also function as a win condition. I think we'd see the playability of 2+ CMC creatures with 3 or less toughness go up (creatures like Lodestone Golem, Vampire Nighthawk, and Trygon Predator come to mind).

Psychatog because he's unplayable in Legacy and might be playable in Modern.

People have already said Daze, and I think it's fair.

Others that would be interesting are Cabal Therapy, Flusterstorm, Stifle, Goblin Bombardment, and Veteran Explorer.

This is pretty good for being thrown together in an hour, but there's a lot of cards you can throw in to just make it strictly better so I'm just gonna throw as many of them as I can think of at you, hopefully that comes off as helpful. I'm gonna try to limit myself to stuff that's been printed recently and/or isn't too expensive.

Cut Cancel for Dissolve or Counterflux they're both just straight better, although counterflux is a bit harder mana-wise.

Take out Divination for Jace's Ingenuity or Shamanic Revelation or even Mulldrifter.

Explosive Vegetation just got reprinted and is an awesome ramp card, other good ones: Kodama's Reach/Cultivate, Sakura-Tribe Elder, and Coiling Oracle.

Turn / Burn is great at removing anything that doesn't have counters on it.

Reclamation Sage, Trygon Predator and Acidic Slime take care of a lot of problematic permanents and can't be countered with your general out.

Bogardan Hellkite and Mistcutter Hydra are like a dollar each and beat some serious face.

Prophet of Kruphix is friggin Prophet of Kruphix, why is this deck not just 99 Prophets of Kruphix?

Sol Ring it's in every EDH precon for a reason son.

Atarka, World Render Because Dragons.

Stubborn Denial if you're doing things right it's a hard counter most of the time.

Ruric Thar, the Unbowed GRUUL WANT SMASH!

Malignus maybe it's just me, but giving this trample just seems hilarious.

Savage Knuckleblade nobody playing standard seems to have any love for him, but he's still a nice beater.

Bane of Progress if you want your friends to hate you.

Cards to cut, although you probably know most of this already:

Emrakul, the Aeons Torn isn't EDH legal so I'd ask your friend if it's okay first.

Dragon Fodder 1/1's aren't really gonna do much in commander other than die horribly.

Opaline Unicorn no self respecting green deck runs colorless ramp that isn't sol ring.

Scorchwalker, Zhur-Taa Swine, Rubblebelt Maaka, and Titan's Strength EDH games tend to run a bit longer than 60 card so one-off bursts of power aren't quite as good as stuff that sticks around and beats face until somebody deals with it.

Anyway that's all I got hope it's helpful, good luck with your EDH-ing!

@garrettlstewart right? Get rid of the Cloudstone Curio or Ancestral Statue and it's a good'ol slug fest! Personally, I hold those cards back or take them out entirely for Acidic Slime and Trygon Predator.
