Vivid Creek Discussion

feathercount on Feathers everywhere

5 days ago

Augury Owl and Judge's Familiar are cheap creatures important in early game for scry and to counter spells/instants.

Later in the game, two other players Stormscape Familiar and Warden of Evos Isle shines. Stormscape Familiar reduces the mana of white spells, which means that white counter spells Orim's Chant, Wing Shards,Dismantling Blow and Island Sanctuary have their cost reduced. Most importantly, Stormscape Familiar reduces the cost of Battle Screech, Eyes in the Skies and Migratory Route. When these cards come to play, 1/1 bird tokens are summoned (4 for each Battle Screech and Migratory Route and multiple 1/1 bird tokens for Eyes in the Skies's populate). Rootborn Defenses (reduced by Stormscape Familiar) multiplies even further our 1/1 bird tokens with populate and turns them indestructible. Warden of Evos Isle reduces the cost of other bird creatures (Thrummingbird and Soulcatcher) meaning more birds.

Many bird tokens and non-tokens creatures and are going to die and repopulate. For each dead bird, a feather counter will be put in Soulcatchers' Aerie (cost reduced by Stormscape Familiar) and boost our creatures wavelike. Tokens and counters are further multiplied by Thrummingbird (proliferate pre-existing tokens) and Soulcatcher (+1/+1 token for each dead bird). Once birds have been summoned and everything is put to its place there is a great synergy. Token-wise, Cathars' Crusade cost reduced by Stormscape Familiar) is a great addition. Favorable Winds is a plus while Gravitational Shift is GG.

In order to speed up the summoning of the birds, Coastal Piracy (draw a card for each attacking creature) and Military Intelligence (draw a card whenever 2 creatures are attacking) come to play. They match-up nicely with Island Sanctuary in order to protect our birds. Deluge can be a very nice surprise.

About lands, Halimar Depths and Seaside Haven speeds up the game. Seaside Haven is important once it sacrifices a bird for Soulcatcher and Soulcatchers' Aerie. Speaking of counters, Calciform Pools, Vivid Creek and Vivid Meadow counters can be proliferated by Thrummingbird and more mana can be added.

Karzalar on Atraxa, Praetors' Voice

It really all depends on what your intent is with Atraxa.

Do you want it creature (+1/+1 counters / -1/-1 counters) heavy, planeswalker heavy, or somewhere in between?

Here's some suggestions (depending on budget, of course) for creature heavy :

Mikaeus, the Lunarch, Cathars' Crusade, Doubling Season, Primal Vigor, Winding Constrictor, about any Hydra that's of rare quality and has X in its mana cost.

Chasm Skulker can create a lot of tokens. Same for Hangarback Walker. It can literally create an huge army with Cathars' Crusade.

Prime Speaker Zegana and Fathom Mage for massive draw.

Gyre Sage for massive mana later on!

For both builds :

All the Vivid lands (Vivid Creek, Vivid Grove, Vivid Marsh, Vivid Meadow) since you can have any colored mana infinitely (via extra counters) when Atraxa is out.

Same for Aether Hub.

Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Burgeoning for faster ramp.

Oracle of Mul Daya and Courser of Kruphix for filtering mana from the top of your deck.

For the Planeswalker : Refer to my earlier deck link.

Hope that helps!

I see where you are coming from with Dryad Arbor and Khalni Garden, but in my meta, people would snipe the Dryad Arbor just for kicks. Khalni Garden isn't bad by comparison; however, if I'm going to have a land come in tapped, I'd rather have a dual land. The lands you mentioned have been on my chopping block for awhile. I'll be cutting Llanowar Reborn, Vivid Creek, and Vivid Grove for dual lands, i.e. Temple of Mystery, Thornwood Falls, Yavimaya Coast, etc.

For card draw, Rhystic Study is an EDH classic. In my budget Shu Yun deck, I'm using Mystic Remora, Desolate Lighthouse, Key to the City, and Jori En, Ruin Diver, and for other types of card advantage, I'm using Mind's Desire, Past in Flames, Charmbreaker Devils, Narset, Enlightened Master, Elite Arcanist, and Kaho, Minamo Historian.

For making your mana base more reliable, try replacing your basic lands with more lands that can produce or fetch a land that can produce any of the three colors in the deck. My suggestion would be to include Command Tower and some of the following: Mystic Monastery, Terramorphic Expanse, Ash Barrens, Vivid Creek, Vivid Crag, Vivid Meadow, Myriad Landscape, Grand Coliseum, Exotic Orchard, City of Brass, Forbidden Orchard, Meteor Crater, Thran Quarry.

Why not run synergistic lands like:

The Vivid lands: Vivid Grove, Vivid Creek, Vivid Marsh and Vivid Meadow;

The Fallen Empires Storage Lands: Bottomless Vault, Hollow Trees, Sand Silos, and Icatian Store;

The Time Spiral Storage lands: Saltcrusted Steppe, Calciform Pools, and Dreadship Reef;

Five Color lands: Gemstone Mine, Tendo Ice Bridge, and Mirrodin's Core;

And then there's Llanowar Reborn
