MartialArt on Snake with big flying Creatures

2 days ago


Very interesting base idea but with some flaws

I will not list what to put out since I would put out a lot here (would be too long). And for another reason I wont do it. You should build the deck yourself and let it evolve and not build it how I would do it.

Just some outlines of what I think and some card ideas.

The flyer+snake idea is good. If your commander gets too much hate you can still build up pressure with flyers.

To your snake part I would suggest adding:

  • Ophidian - Another card drawer to use with your commander but with the drawback of not being able to deal damage if you draw
  • Seshiro the Anointed - lets you draw a card with every snake dealing damage (if the snake already does you draw 2) AND it pumps all your snakes
  • Amoeboid Changeling - you dont have snakes? Make something a snake. Oh and this is also a snake.
  • Shapesharer - this card can be fun - it is everything you need. Doesn't need to be a snake. A Darksteel Colossus from your opponents side is cool too. If you first use your commander you keep the unblockable AND the bonus on the copied creature.

To your flyer side I would suggest adding some power:

Another thing is: You play blue. You need counterspells. More of them.


Lastly I would suggest cutting cards with really weak effects like:

  • Rush of Ice - if you need to get rid of sth kill it, bounce it, counter it but dont let it live. A possibility is Pongify
  • Crippling Chill - same as above
  • Jace's Scrutiny - same as above
  • Ojutai's Breath - same as above
  • Roilmage's Trick - same as above (in 5 colors it could be good)
  • Lead by Example - you can do better in green. Since you dont play with counters there are better options
  • Anticipate - you can do better if it comes to card draw
  • Negate - I gave you better options. This is too focused
  • Archers of Qarsi - unless you focus on walls and defenders this one is useless. Concentrate on winning and not on prolonging the game (unless you win with it of course)

So. Let's see what you do with those suggestions. Further ones may come.

Trygon Predator can be an all star card in a deck like this.

Also, assuming you know you have Qty 2 Coiling Oracle in your deck list?

Kiora, the Crashing Wave is a card that I find provides great value in EDH. The +1 can shut down an early commander heads up, and the -1 (draw a card, can play additional land) has never let me down.

You will definitely need more lands (as was mentioned). If you want to see creatures that can help with mana ramp, consider checking out my deck: Flicker Makes Them Scoop

Test Played some more tonight with many (but not all) of the swaps in place. So far, here's what I have (won't quite match the board since my deck is still in limbo while I think on this and get the cards) :

Augury Owl for Acidic Slime - need to get Augury Owl, have Omenspeaker as the next best thing

Trygon Predator for Diluvian Primordial for sure - I saw my first Torpor Orb and had this + Thassa to be able to take a swing at it

Loaming Shaman for Woodfall Primus - recycling my graveyard in to library was super helpful on the high end

Adding back in Brutalizer Exarch - he's the cheapest control I can fetch with Fierce Empath which I can use to tuck a difficult to deal with permanent. Also 2 separate choices on ETB isn't bad either

Not sure where / how to find room for something like Cloud of Faeries and Sphinx's Revelation. Being able to get some lands back on the combo end (since I usually run things as soon as I land Omniscience) would really allow me to exploit things like Deadeye Navigator and other activated abilities to maximize some effects.

Let's see what swapping the following does to the avg cmc (as I am trying to get that down a bit)

Trygon Predator for Diluvian Primordial

Loaming Shaman for Brutalizer Exarch

Trygon Predator might not be bad to get a copy of in to this deck. Also a Loaming Shaman could still be a good add perhaps

sonnet666 on Removal for Animar edh?

1 month ago

Nobody mentioned Steel Hellkite? It's like the go to, "X colored deck needs to remove anything on a budget," card.

For creature removal I would really suggest investing in a Balefire Dragon, as it's great repeatable boardwipe, but some budget optons that haven't been mentioned yet are Tyrant's Familiar, Scourge of Kher Ridges, Disaster Radius (capitalize on all the high cost creatures you're running),Warstorm Surge, and Curse of the Swine.

For artifact/enchantments you have Viashino Heretic, Trygon Predator, Nullmage Shepherd, Terastodon, Reclamation Sage, Acidic Slime, Decimate, Krosan Grip, Hull Breach, Chaos Warp, Beast Within, Glissa Sunseeker, Woodfall Primus (not budget), and World Breaker (not budget at the moment).

I'm also a fan of just stealing things: Hellkite Tyrant, Aura Thief, Beguiler of Wills, Empress Galina, Memnarch (not budget).

multimedia on Momir Vig, Simic Tutor

PumpkinMuffins, great deck with a really creative combo. +1

A card that I think would really help your overall strategy is Thousand-Year Elixir. Elixir allows you to use the Bracers + Tidewater combo the turn Tidewater is played because it gives haste to Tidwater. Letting you tap him for his ability. Elixir also can untap a creature which is also nice with Azami, Lady of Scrolls.

Doing a quick search here for Simic Wizards shows quite a few. I searched for Simic Wizards because they can do two things which are good for your deck. Triggering both Momir's abilities with one creature and having great interaction with Azami.

Here are the other Simic Wizards:

You're already using a side strategy with Hydras which care about +1/+1 counters while also including Lorescale Coatl and Nimbus Swimmer. Most of the Simic Wizards care about +1/+1 counters which can really strengthen this strategy.

Adding these Wizards as well as some other excellent Simic creatures like Mystic Snake, Trygon Predator and Bounding Krasis also makes Murkfiend Liege much more powerful as well as getting the best use of Momir's ability.

Good luck with your deck.
