Warstorm Surge Discussion

Some creatures that you may want to look into include:

Avenger of Zendikar - An elemental that makes more tokens that get stronger? Yes, please. A great card after board wipes to start rebuilding.

Greenwarden of Murasa Elemental 5/4 Eternal Witness that on death can get you another card.

Vigor Elemental staple that essentially makes most combat in your favor. Also if it would get put into the graveyard in any way, it gets shuffled back into your library.

Ramunap Excavator Don't have money for Crucible of Worlds ? This naga will do the job.

Sylvan Safekeeper So this guy is a good protector of creatures you control, especially with Ramunap Excavator. Also, he can win you the game with a four card combo. With Omnath, Locus of Rage and either Where Ancients Tread or Warstorm Surge sacrifice a decent amount of lands to Sylvan Safekeeper, then use Splendid Reclamation to bring all the lands back, making that many elementals and blowing an opponent out of the water.

Some non-creature cards to check out:Splendid Reclamation outside of that combo, this card is good for picking up lands that for one reason or another ended up in your graveyard. It also really sticks it to the mill decks.

Greater Good essentially lets you dig 5 cards deep for answers for usual the cost of an elemental. An easy way to draw cards and do damage. Goes well with some of the already mentioned cards. Also, it has real-life flavor text. Rare for cards now

Shamanic Revelation Draw cards and gain life. nothing to hate here.

Chain Reaction Sometimes you are going to need a board wipe. This spell will be your best option, as usually its a high enough number of creatures on your side alone to burn out the boards creatures. Couple this with Vigor and your playgroup will start picking up their cards, yielding to your overwhelming force.

Boseiju, Who Shelters All VERY IMPORTANT LAND. This thing makes sure your haymaker instants and sorceries go unquestioned. Praetor's Counsel , Splendid Reclamation ,Chain Reaction ,Second Harvest ,Boundless Realms: Boseiju has your back.

oh, and I guess a Gravity Well or Raking Canopy if flyers are an issue. Hope this wordy mess helps! +1

LittleBlueHero on Ideas for a Scorpion God ...

Another thing to consider if you haven't already is cards that trigger on ETB like Warstorm Surge. The Scorpion God will most likely keep going back to your hand rather than the command zone making recasting him easier.

I feel like these effects are better in a re-animator shell or a deck where cheating creatures in multiple times is a thing... But 6 damage is nothing to sneeze at. My deck runs about 7 creatures that have ETB triggers but you could run a few more, a handful of recursion and Panharmonicon and make that a route to victory.

Soul Snuffers and Skinrender come to mind as benefiting from pan. I also think Banewhip Punisher is a very effective card for this deck. Especially if you are running reanimation at all. It all but ensures at least one creature will die with a counter on it.

All right, I have a couple concerns. Looks at my deck Yidris and his Sky Friends for more stuff.

1) one of the Kindred cycle?

2) literally no noncreature removal.

3) are the gods really necessary?

4) Kavu Lair and Temur Ascendancy.

5) maybe Where Ancients Tread and/or Warstorm Surge.

6) why not Ur as the commander, not his scion?

7) Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius, Numot, the Devastator, O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami (though he's pretty cool), Ojutai, Soul of Winter, maybe Orator of Ojutai, and Thundermaw Hellkite are all subpar creatures, at least in this deck (or in general, depending).

8) your deck is very surprising; you aren't very proactive (not very active, in fact) in the early game. Then turn 5-7 you're like surprise! I have the biggest shit on the board. That's one of the things I love most about your deck, and you can capitalize on that by getting haste enablers. Dragonlord Kolaghan is a good one, though it physically hurts me to see a creature's ability go totally unused.

Took one look at your name and said out loud... 'It's Animar, isn't it.'

Firstly I must suggest Kavu Lair, Temur Ascendancy, and Elemental Bond. Warstorm Surge is sorta optional; some like it, some don't. Riku of Two Reflections is also fun, though there are a million ways to go infinite and I do not approve of infinite. Also suggested is to make most of your cheap creatures for early pumping mana dorks. This allows you, if you're drawing off of most of your creatures, to... say, win the turn after a wrath like my Animar deck. The Eldrazi were a fantastic idea, but you could use a few more. Conduit of Ruin is a great tutor for the rest of your big guys, Decimator of the Provinces is a good finisher (a sentient 2/3 of an overrun). Any of the emerging ones can be cast sac'ing a dork. I could go on, playa.

I like to use Warstorm Surge in my Gishath deck. Just makes the beat down that much worse when they are coming in and pinging for big damage.

Frozen AEther help slow your opponents down.

Wound Reflection is a personal favorite. works especially well with Warstorm Surge

Boseiju, Who Shelters All potentially worth having biased on how consistently you play against blue control.

Cavern of Souls must have in my opinion. Name dragon and just go to town.

Lim-Dul's Vault is a great form of tutor card. can be extremely helpful.

Cathars' Crusade another great enchantment. Worth depending how if your producing tokens and such. or Gleam of Battle as you may be attacking more than dropping creatures.

True Conviction or Rage Reflection for permanent double strike or lifelink. Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion for select double strike.

Quicksilver Amulet a must have for cheating in the big creatures of cheep.

Also very few of your planeswalkers are good. Try Sarkhan Vol or Domri Rade. Elemental Bond is worth checking out, along with Kavu Lair and Warstorm Surge.

jpsuchecki wouldnt trigger the ETBs my creatures do have and wouldn't trigger Warstorm Surge nor Dragon Tempest though. If I can actually bounce stuff out and into play again, I think I may add Paradox Engine. That, plus crystal shard and twinning glass can combo with lots of stuff in the deck for wins.
