Yoked Ox Discussion
1 month ago
I like the suggestions, the idea of Seasons Past and Scrambleverse but Im not sure if it would fit the mana base of thirteen Plains but it will be considered. And for the Yoked Ox, just a first look and you can tell its not as playable, its a 0/4 Ox, not nearly as good as a 0/4 Camel. But I always love a good plan of bribing the opponent into a victory so I will put one in the side. I have to say the idea of 15 Tasseled Dromedary is probably the best idea yet, but I will forget which go in the side or not so Ill make them foil.Thanks for the input.

Tbh, this deck seems like it would have some trouble against control. So for the sideboard, to deal with UW or Grixis control, i suggest 10x Tasseled Dromedary to deal with snapcaster, and excessive counterspells. Then for midrange, for grindier matchups, I suggest 1x Seasons Past for that sweet sweet value, boi. For burn, you need 2xScrambleverse so they get scrambled up n use burn spells on themselves. Finally, for mirror matchups, you gotta use 2x Yoked Ox cuz everyone knows camels dont like only like egg whites. Also it is 1 cent more, so our opponent knows we got dat money tho. This enables our backup plan of bribing them (cuz they think we rich).

My suggestion to you is to make this deck blue.
Play play sets of pila-pala, Grand Architect, Mycosynth Golem and Mycosynth Lattice. - that's probably the best way to get enough mana out fast enough to make this work. But it's also expensive as all get out, so the next option is to play cards like Kraken Hatchling Yoked Ox Wall of Fog - then I would run cards like Sprouting Thrinax Captured Sunlight and basically anything else that has "cascade." Then play cards like Oracle of Bones anything that can get you a card for free is good.
Cause honestly the ultimatum cards are too expensive to be used regularly.

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
