ShreddedByCrows on Surrakar tribal challenge

1 week ago

Cool concept, even if it's pretty hard to match. A bit of an easy take on your theme, but why don't you play some Shapeshifters as a way to have more Surrakar? Tribal cards also could help.

As Surrakars' living places are mostly wild forests and underground rivers, there's a lot to do with that without having to back up only on the Zendikar's expansions.

1.) River cards:

  • River of Tears not the best land you could find, but fits in there

  • Underground River certainly an essential

  • Bad River cheap fetchland fitting the theme

  • Rushing River great removal, really underplayed, fits the theme / you can try something revolving around self land destruction if you decide to give it a try (Crop Rotation, Crucible of Worlds, Wasteland, etc.)

  • River Kelpie interesting creature, which design feels otherworldly and weird, according to the Surrakars /n needs a graveyard gameplan to be effective, and that will seem fine (obvious synergy is [card:Cauldron of Souls] and it's a playable card in there) / pretty good interactions with Yarok / card draw

  • Carpet of Flowers staple in lots of decks for mana production, depends on your playgroup though

  • Dire Undercurrents excellent synergies with Yarok, enabling your creatures without etb-abilities to be more effective / card draw, card advantage

  • Undermine weird counterspell, not really that good, not bad either / illustration matches with the theme

2.) Cave cards:

3.) Cloning your Surrakars cards:

  • Mirror of the Forebears not the most flavourful one, but gives you a cheap way to get more Surrakars so it deserves being at least mentioned

  • Fated Infatuation same comment as for the Mirror, with the advantage of the more abstract card name / waterpoint in the illustration

  • Mimic Vat classic card, not the most flavourful

  • Wall of Stolen Identity more of a Ravnica-themed card, but worth mentioning

  • Phantasmal Image if you can alter a bit the card's image, it could be some Surrakar there / otherwise, it's a good card, and the illustration is strange enough to not injure your theme-deck-style imo

  • Metamorphic Alteration also a nice one

  • Mirror Image not as good as the others, still a wildish illustration style according well with Surrakars

  • Unstable Shapeshifter funny card, a quality+ illustration

  • Bramble Sovereign Surrakars also living in the Guum Wilds/Tangled Vale, this one feels really good / has some interactions with Yarok

  • Rite of Replication Zendikar-themed, water-themed, excellent card, good interactions with Yarok

  • Supplant Form let's just assume for a while that this is Surrakar's magic lel

  • Dual Nature yeh it is slow, but it is strong / interactions with Yarok

4.) Tribal outlet:

5.) Yarok outlet

6.) Other cards

I hope you'll find something helpful amongst those suggestions, keep on brewing and thanks for sharing it!

Conte7 that’s a good point, didn’t think of that. But I’d probably say the best option may be Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. After that something like Unclaimed Territory because you are playing quite a few humans. And maybe also Sea Gate Wreckage that will help you draw if you are empty too. Those are probably the top 3 IMO. But there’s plenty out there that produce colorless that might suit the deck.

HARDsofty thank you! I completely overlooked Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, and I was going to add Cavern of Souls but didn't have a spare like I thought, so Unclaimed Territory is a good place holder.

That or Unclaimed Territory and say Rats. But that card is better for two + colored decks that share creature types.

ArfiGames on Huatli's Dinos

Another Dino fan! Cheers. This is the sort of stuff I like to run, maybe you’ll find some inspiration :) Pioneer Dinosaur Hub Some things, I prefer using sweepers often and consider Commune with Dinosaurs a must for increased consistency and a great play at any stage of the game.

Here is a revised version of the deck with some changes I made. I did add in a sideboard but if you wanted to just focus on the 60/Bo1 that’s not too hard either. It’s there if needed.

Creatures

Everything looks good in general, I’d consider moving all Kinjalli's Sunwing to the sideboard, maybe dropping to 2.

Lands

For these I’d suggest 4 Stomping Ground and 4 Rootbound Crag to cover with 1 or 2 Mountains for Ranging to grab if need be. I see you’re heavier into white than I usually go. I would do something like 2 Sunpetal Grove and 3 Temple Garden with 1 Plains.

The final amount might look something like this, however could probably be upped a bit. I just lean quite a bit more into .

You should add Unclaimed Territory . Would be great for the deck and it is budget friendly. Plus flavor!

Id suggest replacing the Bloodfell Caves with a faster mana source Unclaimed Territory might work since your only running 2 non creatures with red in there cost. also Fatal Push is pretty good, not budget tho.

Unclaimed Territory , Stoneforge Masterwork and maybe some madness cards since you have a lot of discard?
