I have a friend that built this deck and played for a FNM. I borrowed the idea and added a few extra cards in there. Keeping it Post Rotation the best we can. Whole point of this deck WAS to get infinite drake tokens out!
SO! The strategy around this deck has changed! But main 3 cards it was built around is there!
Main build of this deck is around 3 cards...
Play Omniscience , then cast Ghostly Flicker on Archaeomancer gaining back the just used Ghostly Flicker and one Elvish Visionary draw 1 card! Then rinse and repeat! Until you get a Thragtusk pulled then flicker the Archaeomancer and Thragtusk for awhile, stacking beast tokens and gaining life! If I have Talrand, Sky Summoner on the main board at the time (instead of Thragtusk ) when he enters then each spell you cast after, you're just stacking Drake Tokens from ablity!
Most people don't see the Archaeomancer as a threat... they will look at the Elderscale Wurm , Craterhoof Behemoth or Primordial Hydra frist before even thinking about wasting a Murder on Archaeomancer .
Laboratory Maniac so that once the main combo gets going I can just mill myself out for the win!
Tamiyo, the Moon Sage is primarily for extra card draw as well as her -8. She here also to freak people out a bit... Cause nobody wants to see her final ability! >:D
Cyclonic Rift side boarded... for those times when you wanna throw back everyone's creatures!
And one Acidic Slime for that delicious land destruction! If I choose not to mill myself out I can swing for big without any worry from opponents spells! :D
Any other suggestion on what to take out? Maybe even other cards that would work better that the ones I have in here.
Thank you to everyone that has help me with this beast! It wouldn't be what it is today without you all!
Since Return to Ravnica has dropped and all these new cards are here. I just had to add a couple to this particular deck.
I have made this one a little over 60 cards but I feel that it still works well!
Let me know what you all think!
The name has changed!
Since Infinite Drakes are no longer the main objective.... But you can still have a INFINITE ARMY!
I added a Craterhoof Behemoth and some Thragtusk s onto the main board in place of Talrand, Sky Summoner ! So no more infinite drakes :' ( But that's ok! Infinite BEASTS!!! Seems pretty solid! Test it and let me know what you think!
@4649matt Why that you sir! for Sever the Bloodline first thing that comes to mind is ether a Dissipate to counter and exile it or even a Peel from Reality or Ghostly Flicker to make the targets illegal.
At least that's what I can think of right meow!
@DarthTrevyn Excellent points. Nothing is more bothersome than to have a combo shut down just when you get it rolling.
I ended up taking out Laboratory Maniac . A single instant destroying/exiling him can turn Victory into Defeat. It may have happened to me. Your deck has a lot more answers though.
Great Deck, definite +1.
While the Clone won't interrupt your Primal Surge, the Counterpart is repeatable using the Archaeomancer combo. Infinite Craterhoofs/Elderscales/Thragtusks sounds pretty tasty to me.
