Yoked Ox Discussion

Hi Alhanalm,

Thanks for the +1 and the constructive feedback. I agree with you that Yoked Ox is very vanilla and could be replaced with something more useful. Not Disowned Ancestor though, he is already in there. As I do not have any spells that target creatures specifically, Lagonna-Band Trailblazer does not seem to fit very well either. I am casting some black spells now and then though, so God-Pharaoh's Faithful could be valuable to me. I will look into it. Thanks again!

Might as well switch out Yoked Ox for something like Disowned Ancestor or God-Pharaoh's Faithful. Even Lagonna-Band Trailblazer has something to offer and all three should be easy to get for free from friends or something. All-in-all I love the deck and want to build with him sometime... +1 for me!

I think this idea of "high defense" creatures being so "cheap" or having other utilities is the reason why cards like Doran, the Siege Tower and Assault Formation are fairly rare. Making creatures able to assign damage from their toughness can warp the game in unexpected ways. Especially since you can transform creatures like Tree of Perdition and Tree of Redemption into 13/13 creatures for 4 mana, when you pair them with cards that allow you to negate the Defender tag. Or cards like Indomitable Ancients who are a 2/10 creature for 4 mana, Doran turns it into a 10/10 creature in essence. Even things like Yoked Ox and God-Pharaoh's Faithful become insanely strong as they become essentially 4/4 1 drop creatures.

Good deck, I think it needs more lands. Your Mana base isn't as stable. How did it go at FNM, I think Yoked Ox would be a good addition

The new God-Pharaoh's Faithful is a strict upgrade to Yoked Ox. While it won't trigger often, occasionally gaining 1-2 extra life can be quite useful.
With regard to lands, 22-24 is where I'd want to be with your list. You have many cheap spells, but you really want to hit 3 mana every game, and playing 3 colors is another reason to make sure you have enough mana sources. Also, your enchantments can make use of excess mana.
As for lands you could add, I suggest 1-2 Shambling Vent or Stirring Wildwood. Colorless lands like Ghost Quarter or Gavony Township are great in many decks; here, however, casting Doran is top priority and colorless mana doesn't help with that.

Hey i24, thanks for the suggestions. Personally I am not a big fan of the original vanilla creatures like Yoked Ox, Tasseled Dromedary and such... I would like them to bring something extra to the battlefirld besides just being fat.

Do you think there are still cards which you might cut?
