Wild Cantor Discussion

lagotripha on Complete Manifesto

I can see where this is going, and I like it, but there are two major hurdles to cross. One is that your curve drops a lot of creatures on to the battlefield a little late, and they don't have the immediate board presence to offset this loss- this isn't Gatekeeper of Malakir stuff- eternal witness is a great card but its just a bear the turn you play it, and that is unlikely to be enough to survive in this fast-paced metagame.

The second issue is unreliable mana- your lands are entering untapped which is essential for creature based aggro, but are not providing multiple colours, effectively leaving multiple cards in your hand blank.

I'd reccomend adding the following, and cutting the number of cards that don't have an immediate impact on the game.

Budget - Avacyn's Pilgrim Honored Hierarch Magus of the Vineyard Wild Cantor Bloodlust Inciter Boros Elite Doomed Traveler Ulvenwald Tracker Experiment One Knight of the White Orchid etc.

Less budget -Karplusan Forest Rootbound Crag Sunpetal Grove Clifftop Retreat Cryptolith Rite Inspiring Vantage.

Don't talk about the price - Noble Hierarch Knight of the Reliquary+fetches Horizon Canopy Blood Moon etc. Just look at tournament lists at this point. All lists including this type of card have been largely explored and optimised, so its not much worth mucking around with.

I'd reccomend cryptolith over prismatic, because you need the added acceleration if you're sacrificing a turn to play it in a deck that wants to be attacking and casting bigger stuff. That said, you could just play token spells in those slots or some more lands. It doesn't look as flashy, but it keeps the deck running smoothly without 'loosing' a turn.

You can make the deck a lot, lot more stable by leaving a colour to later in the game, only including a single basic and alternative ways of producing the mana, allowing you to reliably cast creatures turns 1-2-3. You aren't pumping out hoardes of goblin or elemental tokens or abusing flicker for impact tremors to be super effective, so leaving the only red spells as Kessig Malcontents as a finishing blow in an otherwise green/white list will be a lot more reliable. Swap kytheon and twin bolt main to sideboard- you might want to keep the impact tremors there if you face a lot of Fog effects.

Borderland ranger is too expensive mana wise for what it does- Harrow is an instant and leaves two lands untapped and better creatures are out there to fix mana. There are better cards for that slot.

All told, playtest, look at what other people are doing and most of all, have fun!

I'm going to be honest, eggs has a much better chance of winning in modern. just saying. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Eggs, but I think this list is just in the wrong environment. if you want a really cool win, win with Coalition Victory and Slitherhead, Wild Cantor, Nip Gwyllion, and Judge's Familiar.

For a faster ramp add in:

4x Elvish Mystic

4x Boreal Druid

4x Birds of Paradise

Maybe as a replacement for:

4x Myr Servitor

4x Wild Cantor

2x Elixir of Immortality

2x Feed the Pack

Seems to be in a good spot. I'll playtest it when I get home. Insolent Neonate is decent. I'm concerned about the investment you have to make for his ability, but again I'll play him a few games.

I think you should swap 4 Wild Cantor in for Mogg Fanatic. Maybe you occasionally use mogg for removal. But I'm picturing having 2 moggs in your hand vs 2 cantors, and Wild Cantor just seems more flexible, and a lot more useful in that situation.

I never tested the deck with fewer than 8 big guys, also. So that's one more thing I'll be mindful of when I'm testing =)

Overall, I really like where this is at tho

you should totally put in 1 Worldspine Wurm for the laughs.

pretty cool idea, but you need to either fix it to make it modern legal, or remove the tag. a lot of people will not be willing to help you with this until you do. if you want it to be modern legal, you could always go for the burst mana and replace the Sol Rings with Desperate Rituals. the Scablands just replace with basics. it's not a good idea to have no basics anyway.

and why Darksteel Forge? every test i ran, it seemed pretty useless. in the event i actually needed it, the game was way too early in, and by the time i could cast it, i didnt need it. maybe swap for Welding Jar?

as an upgrade idea, replace Wild Cantor with Simian Spirit Guide

@jalka Utopia Sprawl sounds like a good replacement for Wild Growth. Rootbound Crag sounds good as well. Compared to Stomping Ground there wouldnt be the disadvantage of paying 2 life if not played in turn 1. Rampant Growth is also a nice tip here, because I can put that land - well, only "basic land" but this doesnt matter - directly (yeah, tapped) into play. I am not sure what to say about Mwonvuli Acid-Moss. Pro to Wreak Havoc is that it cant be countered, but Mwonvuli Acid-Moss has that search for a forest part which also makes it quite cool. Definitely will need to have a closer look on what it would change to my deck. Thanks for those helpful tips!

@CheapDecks101 I know that that sideboard only focuses on hate against artifacts, fliers and lands. Some card tips maybe that could counter other things well? Wild Cantor just dropped in because of the chance to pay it with 1 red or green mana in case there is one mana left that turn I want to cast the dragon (so that there is one more creature to devour). You may know one or two other cards with devour (and flying) that could safe the win as well as Predator Dragon? Also big thanks to you!

You need more creatures that aren't mana dorks. Your deck is super glass cannon if your Predator Dragon dies.
Also Wild Cantor sucks; sure you can play it off of a red land turn one. But a one mana 1/1 that you have to sac to produce mana kind of sucks. If it's only in your deck for mana fixing(it can be any color mana) consider Birds of Paradise instead.
