Abres_Tenelles Deckling

I've been playing Magic, since around the last Ice Age. Despite a hiatus after Plane Shift, a work buddy got me back cardflopping just as the Onslaught block wrapped up with Scourge. For better or worse, I haven't stopped since.

Becoming increasingly disinterested with conventional '64' constructed magic by around early 2011, I now almost exclusively play Commander/EDH. I value its diversity and game to game variance. So I usually shun tutor commanders and most dedicated Voltron strategies, purely out of personal taste. With one exception being, a cool thematic idea I had for this Animar deck.

Purphoros, God of the Forge and Talrand, Sky Summoner are about as "voltrony" as I'll go usually. Yeah, okay and Jolrael, Empress of Beasts too.

I also really enjoy drafting magic. So, I have assembled a few of my own cubes. Particularly, this cube.

Favourite Planeswalker Character: Ajani Goldmane

Favourite Planeswalker Cardboard: Garruk Wildspeaker

Favourite Card Combo: It certainly is not Marath, Will of the Wild and R&D's Secret Lair. I mean it needs an unhinged card. Wizards certainly wouldn't keep making these errors, just to make you want to use Unhinged set cards. ...Would they?

Favourite Card Artists: John Avon, Daren Bader, Michael Komarck, Terese Nielsen, Todd Lockwood, Wayne Reynolds

Favourite Gaming Magic Moment: It involved (in draft) a beautifully played Pain's Reward, followed by a Hidetsugu's Second Rite as the finish. Leaving a harsh lesson in excessive greed.

Well spotted!

Of course, it will need 100 cards (not 99) to be complete. This is why it currently says WIP in the deck's title.

Sentences start with a capital letter and end with a full stop, like this >.

Finally, "allowed" has two of the letter "l" in it.

April 23, 2017 1:35 p.m.

This is looking solid!

Illusionist's Bracers could be great for getting double value from Geth!

Counters are always fun!

You might like Novijen Sages, Sage of Fables & Zameck Guildmage for turning them into cards.

Untap ability creatures would allow even more shenanigans with Experiment Kraj too.

Such as Gilder Bairn, Pili-Pala, Leech Bonder, Umbral Mantle, or Merrow Wavebreakers.

Just wanted to point out you can't Green Sun's Zenith for Blightsteel Colossus,

but you can with Chord of Calling!

You might also find Cream of the Crop useful for setting up the next card you draw. You can choose to stack it's effect after Karametra, keeping the chosen card on top.

April 22, 2017 10:54 a.m.

Like that you went for another theme!

It takes a little set-up but Illusionist's Bracers could be useful for copies of Kaseto's ability.

Nature's Will might be nice for mana tricks too.

April 19, 2017 8:14 p.m.

Ooh and Elderscale Wurm as a kind of second Platinum Emperion.

April 19, 2017 6:52 p.m.

Would like to suggest Paleoloth as an on theme way of returning big creatures.

Plus Soul of the Harvest, Drumhunter and Cream of the Crop for card draw and deck manipulation.

April 19, 2017 6:51 p.m.

Love the deck concept!

Are Avacyn, Angel of Hope, That Which Was Taken and Cauldron of Souls of any use to protect key permanents? Perhaps Otherworldly Journey too?

April 19, 2017 6:37 p.m.

If you're looking to be a bit more competitive, you might try an idea I found by accident Fungal Sprouting

Prossh, Skyraider of Kher with Fungal Sprouting is instant fatal commander damage.

April 19, 2017 6:30 p.m.

I do respect you not using Infinite combos and the list seems solid!

Perhaps it may need more early game ramp, to give it some momentum? Diligent Farmhand, Yavimaya Elder and Yavimaya Granger (don't pay the echo of course) give you extra sac triggers whilst finding land cards.

If you think removal might be necessary Savra, Queen of the Golgari, Stronghold Assassin and Eater of Hope turn your creatures into just that.

I don't want to bombard you with card suggestions, but my Prossh decklist may give you some inspiration!

April 18, 2017 8:01 p.m.

Nice to see an Ulasht list!

Impact Tremors is another way to get value out of spawning tokens. Druids' Repository and Food Chain can turn those tokens into other mana options like Cryptolith Rite

Fecundity could be nice for netting cards when tokens die. Descent of the Dragons also gives another effect like Fresh Meat, but it can also take your opponent's large threats too.

Finally, as ulasht specifically makes saprolings, Psychotrope Thallid and Utopia Mycon could be of use as well.

April 18, 2017 2:15 p.m.

Would like to suggest Hunter's Prowess and Soul's Majesty for reloading your hand.

Kamahl, Fist of Krosa let's you channel all that saved mana into overrunning your army, should you need to.

Finally Sakiko, Mother of Summer is kinda a match made in heaven for an aggressive Omnath, Locus of Mana

Ooh, Ulvenwald Tracker also let's you Prey Upon multiple times if need be.

Interesting deck idea!

Adding Grave Titan might be a nice idea as he works as a finisher for putting games away. He even has the decency to stay on the Deathtouch theme.

Acidic Slime would also be good for taking out pesky trinket cards you opponent might play.

Finally Mwonvuli Beast Tracker will let you search up whichever creature you might need quick (like an Acidic Slime).

Ohran Viper doesn't quite have deathtouch, but his ability to draw you cards really makes him worth mentioning.

Wonder how this list would look with Seer's Sundial, Tower of Fortunes or Loreseeker's Stone for card draw?

April 14, 2017 8 p.m.

k1llampt

Zameck Guildmage could still be good I feel. But appreciate the colour drawback of it.

There is combat themed card draw such as Bred for the Hunt, Bident of Thassa, and Coastal Piracy

And some extra counter themed draw as well, like Armorcraft Judge, Fathom Mage, and Prime Speaker Zegana

April 13, 2017 3:44 p.m.

Nice list!

You could add Suture Priest as another soul sister.

Sun Droplet could be very handy for extra life gain triggers and Well of Lost Dreams can turn it into cards too.

Finally Serra Avatar is expensive to cast, but combos perfectly with Wall of Reverence

April 13, 2017 9:08 a.m.

The landbase looks solid and the curve seems fine!

You might want a couple of more mana rocks, but you should get a proper feel for that with play testing.

You might like Akroma's Vengeance or Planar Cleansing as they take creatures and artifacts etc. in a single sweep.

Chained to the Rocks is also a cheaper Journey to Nowhere as you're playing mountains.

Sunblast Angel might also be useful, as it's not too hard to make it one sided in your favour.

Finally Victory's Herald and Odric, Master Tactician can be rather tasty for those extra combat steps too!

ay.lobo

I keep forgetting the medallions got an EDH reprint. Gotta to try to pick them up.

Goblin Sharpshooter has been in the list before now. I might rotate him back in!
