MTG Deck Builder


My Work-in-progress of a Naya pod deck. Curves out at 6 cmc for a more aggro approach. Sideboard is still a work in progress.

No Elesh, Norn?

Interesting take! You might want a few more creatures on your top end, with all your ramp. I could see Sun TitanMTG Card: Sun Titan, Inferno TitanMTG Card: Inferno Titan, Moltensteel DragonMTG Card: Moltensteel Dragon, Steel HellkiteMTG Card: Steel Hellkite doing well here.

NaturalizeMTG Card: Naturalize wouldn't be a bad idea maindecked, pending your meta. Considering the 1 CMC of Grafdigger's CageMTG Card: Grafdigger's Cage, it could really screw your deck.

Also, why the 1x of Razorverge ThicketMTG Card: Razorverge Thicket? It's only good the first few turns, so either put more copies in or take it out for 1x Sunpetal GroveMTG Card: Sunpetal Grove. You could get away with 23 land in this deck, considering all of the ramp...

@MetalTrsuElesh Norn is a long term goal of mine for this deck, I just don't have one yet

@aeonstoremyliverThanks for the suggestions! Grafdiggers cage doesn't scare me much but I do have multiple ways to deal with it after sideboarding. And I have the 1x razorverge thicket mainly because I had one laying around and needed a use for it.

...--shoot that delver-- also might need to find a spot, I know he is hard to sac away, but those 5 drops will be needed in a pinch. I ended up dropping Solemn SimulacrumMTG Card: Solemn Simulacrum for 2 of those. Solemn is nice, just did not have the room. I hope Grafdigger's CageMTG Card: Grafdigger's Cage is not too big, I have only seen one other deck play it. I think you might want some more Sideboard pod tech like another Archon of JusticeMTG Card: Archon of Justice and a few handy creatures for particular situations.

my Naya pod: I Gots Pods, It Makes Guyz I appreciate input.

In order to trigger HellriderMTG Card: Hellrider's ability "whenever a creature you control attacks," I would assume that the creature would first have to be untapped, then an attack step declared. By inferring that, wouldn't Hero of BladeholdMTG Card: Hero of Bladehold's tokens not get the bonus from HellriderMTG Card: Hellrider because they ETB 'tapped and attacking'?

Oh, and Amurica, no problem man, just trying to help.

I could be wrong, DawnsRayofLight... just a thought.

April 3, 2012 11:19 p.m.

No, I understand what you are saying, the ruling is that the tokens are "attacking" as stated in Hero's text and and meet the conditions for "attack[s]" on HellriderMTG Card: Hellrider, believe me, I lost to another guy who was working on the list with me, running that combo as well (I was playing control that night).
