Angler Turtle Discussion

I was just showing off the Turtle Tribal deck, but it didn't elicit the reactions I was hoping for:

"Why no Huatli?" ... "Because she's not a turtle." "Why no Arcades?" ... "Because he's not a turtle.", etc, etc.

Dragon Turtle looks promising, and sort of funny they're pairing "flash" with these slowpokes. Might be worth testing it out — as much as I love Angler Turtle , I don't think I've been able to cast him yet. The lower CMC might benefit the deck as a whole.

nathanielhebert on COWABUNGA!!! Turtle power is a great toughness!

seshiro_of_the_orochi Excited to report that I've assembled the cards needed to put this deck together — got a playset of Angler Turtle in foil, and a bunch of Frog Lizard tokens on hand. Splurged and added in a few Waterlogged Grove and Hinterland Harbor to the mana base, and an additional Assault Formation to give those turtles some teeth! Cheers!

Angler Turtle

Creature - Turtle Leviathan

Hexproof, Vigilance

At the beginning of each opponent's combat phase, goad each creature they control.


The process: At first I wanted to change Immersturm Predator (I really can't explain my fascination with that catd). After copying its text, I realized you don't have to exile a card to put the counter on it, which besides making it have Flample is what I wanted to change. So it already does what I thought it wouldn't do. Now I like it even more. This is how Angler Turtle entered the competition. This card ist just sooo cool, and yet nobody plays it. Well, this new version doesn't change a thing in 1v1 but makes it a lot better in multiplayer. Also, adding the Leviathan type makes it playable in seamonster decks.

This challenge is fun. Repeat, please.

Epicurus: There actually are some forced combat cards in these colours: Angler Turtle , Bident of Thassa , Alluring Siren , Dulcet Sirens , Siren's Call . Also, Spear of Heliod is a great card for that strategy, as is Settle the Wreckage . Especially Spear works beautifully with the design you came up with. Great job!

Poor merfolk. All those lords and they still die to 6-pack plastic rings. My hope is that you don't take this the wrong way, but shouldn't you cut a few creatures for some additional lands? Perhaps -1 Angler Turtle for +1 Hinterland Harbor or even a Lumbering Falls if you're concerned about cutting any creatures. Definitely earned your plus one from me though. Cheers!

How about this: A deck around Guild Summit that abuses Meloku the Clouded Mirror and the combo of Sakura-Tribe Scout, Retreat to Coralhelm and some bouncelands.

I want to see Angler Turtle being abused in commander.
