Trygon Predator Discussion

tonfer20 on Liquimetal Destruction

3 days ago

Interesting choice of going red/green. Most artifact destruction lists (I don't know if there is a name for this kind of archtype) go blue/green. It has access to Trygon Predator for more destruction (not that you don't have enough or anything, just repeatable), Argent Mutation if needing another way for coating something, and Fabricate, Tezzeret the Seeker and Muddle the Mixture for tutoring out the coating... just some ideas, I don't want to sound pushy..

Some other things you might like are Oxidize, Voltaic Key, Myr Landshaper and Viridian Revel.

Love the deck, just wanted to help a little bit. Considering building one of these decks now, looks evil

Lightpulsar9 on Sidisi, Brood Mom

First off, You'll need to focus the deck a bit. What sort of strategy do you want to play to? Zombie tribal? More of a competitive combo deck? reanimator? Maybe a theme you decide on yourself? Regardless, you'll need to pick some kind of main gameplan and make cuts based on that. There are lots of cool Sidisi, Brood Tyrant decks out there to draw some inspiration from. I've actually got a deck of my own I've been working on for about a month now. It's not the same sorta budget as this, but it's got some cool ideas you could try. And if you want I can link some other cool sidisi deck for you to check out if you want.

All that being said, Here are some cards I don't feel are too good in the deck.

Mindslicer - There are better reanimation targets, don't really ever want to play over sidisi, and is kinda bad late when your hand is usually pretty crazy. I've found discarding your hand isn't as beneficial as you'd think

Noxious Revival - better reanimation cards exist

Unearth - see above

Lightning Greaves - I don't know how necessary this card is. Sidisi isn't super necessary for the deck to work, and if you need haste, Concordant Crossroads may be better since there are generally lots of tokens out.

Drown in Filth - there is better spot removal/ self mill

Gnaw to the Bone - lifegain isn't too important in EDH

Splinterfright - This card isn't really as good as you'd think it is. I tried it and usually it died, or i never wanted it because sidisi is generally a "go wide" kinda deck, so this was just a waste of space.

Trygon Predator - there are better artifact/enchantment hate cards

Avatar of Woe - You could be reanimating/ casting something better, such as Avenger of Zendikar or Craterhoof Behemoth

Dead Drop - there is better spot removal in EDH

Hey, I got a foil Kessig Wolf Run from inistrad and a foil Trygon Predator from eternal masters. I would love to get an Oracle of Mul Daya off of you.

Don't worry about it man. This is my life until I get off doing the damn truck. Should be within the next couple weeks.

I believe you should take out all of your counterspells. You only play 4 (Counterspell, Mystic Snake, Plasm Capture, Fuel for the Cause) which in EDH isn't really anything. If you're going to go for that kind of control route you should be making it an entire them in your deck, not just four cards.

I also don't care for Zameck Guildmage. You have Fathom Mage to help draw a lot more cards, as well as Bred for the Hunt which helps you draw a lot more cards in a more efficient way.

I understand the reason behind Scavenging Ooze, but I don't think he's as efficient in EDH, plus you have plenty of better creatures you could use.

Thrummingbird seriously seemed out of place here being that you have no way to give infect to your opponent. I think you'd rather give your counters to a better creature that would have trample or something to that effect.

Inexorable Tide, and most of the cards with proliferate, all seem somewhat out of place. Proliferate only gives ONE extra counter, and while this is the one that is better than the rest, I just don't think you need it with all the counters you can give your creatures with other effects. Other cards with proliferate I think that would be worth taking out are Contagion Clasp and Contagion Engine. I agree they are cool cards, but they don't continuously put -1/-1 counters on the creatures. Once they die all they do is proliferate.

Swiftfoot Boots seems somewhat redundant with Asceticism, Lightning Greaves, and Plaxcaster Frogling.

Urban Evolution, while it is good, seems a little expensive for what it does. In these colors you definitely have better draw spells, plus Exploration, Burgeoning, Azusa, Lost but Seeking, and Oracle of Mul Daya for extra land drops. These are the one I can think of that are continuous and less CMC.

Trygon Predator I believe is underwhelming as well. In your colors you have Back to Nature, Creeping Corrosion, and less mana Nature's Lore, and Naturalize, ect. Granted he is continuous, but I just don't see you being excited about drawing him.

Cytoplast Root-Kin is just another creature to move counters. I'm not sure you need ANOTHER one with the, 1...2...3...crap ton that you already have.

Those are 14 cards I believe you should take out. Even if any of these you absolutely believe you should have in, I would still take these out to be at 100, then decide what else to take out for whatever card mentioned that you absolutely believe you should have. These are my suggestions for you man.

LeaPlath on The RUG is Out to Dry!

It looks like you are trying to do RUG Delver without the expensive stuff, which is fine, but you are running lots of suboptimal choices.

I mean the Green might as well not be there.

Drop down to 4 Mongoose, 4 delver and add in 4 Werebear or Delve-apes.

Cut down on the duals to like 3 steam vents, 3 pool. Up fetches, run maybe 2 basics. Helps turn on spells faster.

Brainstorm and Ponder to smooth out draws, Daze, Bolt, Counterspell, Fire/Ice, Stifle, to let you catch people out.

Get wastelands, that helps so much. lets you run on a low mana count.

For sideboard, drop Thing, drop Smash, play Ancient Grudge (2 for 1), play Tormod's Crypt, play Submerge, Krosan Grip, Trygon Predator

Akoopla on Absolutely Disgusting

amazingdan Affinity is a rough matchup if they can vomit their hand onto the field fast enough. This deck can usually hold out for a while if it gets an Isochron Scepter early to exile one of the artifact removals since Liquimetal Coating becomes almost irrelevant. The savior of the early game against aggressive artifact decks however, is usually Trygon Predator, getting out a 2/3 body with flying that will allow you to block chumps and remove big threats like Cranial Plating with its ability. The biggest problem this deck has against affinity is when your only artifact removal is Trygon and they have a big single threat on the board, but you can't get past a number of Vault Skirges blocking your way. As long as Viridian Revel gets on the board early enough for you to have a good card lead over your opponent, you should be fine. That being said, there are a few strange affinity decks and the like that can throw this deck off, but assuming you have the same skill level as your opponent, don't get screwed or flooded, you should have a fair chance.

BUG Still is brutal. Have you thought to run a singleton Trygon Predator

boristormodor on Rafiq of the Many EDH by Sloth

I would play Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares over cards like Plummet.

Maybe try Trygon Predator and Ohran Viper because they double their effects with Rafiq of the Many.

And I wouldn't play Masterwork of Ingenuity. You do not have enough equipments for this card in your deck.

For a more aggro-variant of the deck check my Rafiq Aggro EDH 1vs1 Competitive (with Guide).
