Where Ancients Tread Discussion

bushido_man96 on Super Budget Landfall

If you like Fling or Thud , consider Bloodshot Cyclops for a more repeatable version of the effect. Cards like Gaea's Touch , Ghirapur Orrery and Rites of Flourishing are budget cards that let you play additional lands, and the Rites lets you draw an extra card, too. Sakura-Tribe Scout , Skyshroud Ranger , and Walking Atlas offer you more Llanowar Scout effects, and you might find Budoka Gardener to be on theme for you deck, too. I'd recommend Goblin Bombardment as a good free sac outlet for Omnath's death trigger, and Warstorm Surge to bring some more pain when your big creatures come into play - straight upgrade over Where Ancients Tread .

Looks good so far! Hope this helps.

Dinosaurs! Glad you made this, it looks really fun. Here's a few suggestions / opinions:

You have too much land. I know it's dinos and everything is high CMC, but I think you could do 36. My reasoning: yes, you could get mana screwed, it happens. But with your rocks, cost reducers like Knight of the Stampede and Urza's Incubator , and fetch cards like Cultivate , you're at greater risk of flooding out and you have almost no ways to loot or wheel your hand.

Related: in a deck like this, scry is almost as good as draw. Think about swapping a card out for Lifecrafter's Bestiary - maybe lose Boros Signet (since green is your dominant color)?

Maybeboard: I think you absolutely want all three of Chromatic Lantern , Lightning Greaves , and Heroic Intervention . I'd take any/all of those over Sunbird's Invocation , Farseek , or Commune with Dinosaurs , for example.

Last, a few other cards to think about that address some of your weak spots:

- Ulvenwald Tracker

- Unbreakable Formation

- Where Ancients Tread

- Elemental Bond

Nice work with the deck - hope it's a blast to play.

+1 because I started reading the description and comments in Hulks Voice and it was great. Sadly I couldn't come up with any suggestions to go with it.

On second thought... Perhaps Warstorm Surge and Where Ancients Tread could fit in for some extra removal. Fervor , Fires of Yavimaya , and Rhythm of the Wild are all haste enablers, or if you want to keep it more creature based there's Anger and Surrak, the Hunt Caller . Then you can smash face faster.

And in the spirit of keeping The Hulk angry... Azorius has my vote. Sorry, not sorry.

Search for Tomorrow and Skyshroud Claim could be cut. Where Ancients Tread could get the axe as well as Dragonmaster Outcast . Mizzium Mortar as well is a good candidate for the chopping block.

vic on Do +1/+1 counters and -1/-1 ...

Thanks Madcookie. I would have tried to look up the rule myself, but didn't know where to go. Can you tell me where you found that, for future reference?

And I love the card suggestions. Where Ancients Tread would be gloriously fun. Kinda mana intensive to do all that, but if that goes off, it would be great fun. Fling and Prey Upon would be fun with that, too.

Madcookie on Do +1/+1 counters and -1/-1 ...

Yes, the each +1/+1 and -1/-1 counters cancel each other out as a state-based effect and the combo will work as per rule 121.3.

P.S. Also I immediately thought of to throwing in something like Ashnod's Altar and Where Ancients Tread for extra umph :D

121.3. If a permanent has both a +1/+1 counter and a -1/-1 counter on it, N +1/+1 and N -1/-1 counters are removed from it as a state-based action, where N is the smaller of the number of +1/+1 and -1/-1 counters on it. See rule 704(<--this rule is just for state based actions).

Ravenrose on 24 Commander Damage?! - Atarka, World Render

2 months ago

Finally! I see Atarka, World Render as a Commander! She is basically a win condition in my Dracarys deck so I have a soft spot for her. I think this deck could make use of Lathliss, Dragon Queen . I also recommend the use of Wild Pair , Where Ancients Tread and Warstorm Surge . Lots and lots of dragons, and lots and lots of pain for your opponent. Elemental Bond would be a good source of card draw in your deck.

I hope these are of help to you!
