Apex Devastator

Creature — Chimera Hydra

Cascade, cascade, cascade, cascade (When you cast this spell, exile cards from the top of your library until you exile a nonland card that costs less. You may cast it without paying its mana cost. Put the exiled cards on the bottom of your library ina random. Multiple instances of cascade each trigger separately.)

Instead of the mana doublers, i would add something like Bear Umbra, untaps your land if you swing with your commander, plus totem armor. Get some protection aswell, Lightning Greaves Yeva, Nature's Herald (just cast commander straight back when he gets destroyed, keep it in your hand). maybe a few spells like Tamiyo's Safekeeping, Tyvar's Stand, Gaea's Gift, Momentous Fall, Shared Summons, Wrap in Vigor some other creatures i didnt think of before: Oracle of Mul Daya, Silverback Elder, Apex Devastator, Cultivator Colossus, Ghalta, Primal Hunger, Cankerbloom, Topiary Stomper, Regal Force

For cutting cards, i would just cut cards that arent creatures or synergize with creatures, or dont do alot most of the time. something like Exponential Growth is gonna be a dead card in your hand most of the times.

Also dont understand most artifacts in your deck. Diviner's Wand for example, 3 mana to cast, 3 to equip, 4 to draw 1 card, 10 mana to draw your first card, and 4 mana for each card after that doesnt seem worth it at all. Id also cut 1x Mirage Mirror, Staff of Compleation, Helm of the Host, Lithoform Engine, Book of Rass

Id also cut: Vigor, Ironscale Hydra, Seeker of Skybreak, Viridian Joiner, Nantuko Mentor

And i would add 4-5 lands. playing a land per turn is stronger then playing an arcane signet or sol ring and then miss a land drop. (id cut arcane signet and sol ring aswell, they are bad draws past t4)

I see why you linked this primer on my list, but to be honest at this time I'm having too much fun with the kiki-jiki shenanigans I have. Plus my tendency to put Apex Devastator on the stack for two mana... on the record as saying "guys chill it's just gonna be value" before ripping Kiki and pestermite with purphoros off of cascades.... "value" amirite?

Yahh.. i have stayed away from legendary creatures, because only one gets put into play (other ETB's then dies).

Also, Cascade doesnt work with Volo's ability. The first Sweet-Gum Recluse you cast gets its cascade, but the second doesnt because YOU didnt cast it.. And then, whatever creature cascades out of your deck doesnt get duplicated by Volo's ability because you didnt CAST that either.

I happened to have an Apex Devastator, so threw it in, because 4 cascades is pretty good, but a creature with a single cascade doesn't really synergize with Volo. But it was a real kick in the pants when I found out my copy of him didnt get 4 cascades as well. Below are a couple honourable mentions in mine.

Sludge Monster -- targeted removal

Prosperous Innkeeper -- life gain

Beastcaller Savant for ramp pays for himself first turn (if you duplicate)

Reef Worm - protection from board wipes

NV_1980, Yes, I've already thought about Vigor and Archetype of Endurance and they're also in my Maybevoard for testing. Maybe swap it out for a Carnage Tyrant and see. Apex Devastator didn't really appeal to me to play it in the deck.

If you are looking for creatures with attached ETBs,

Topiary Stomper --land fetch

Sludge Monster -- targeted removal

Lord of Change -- draw

Prosperous Innkeeper -- life gain

Beastcaller Savant for ramp pays for himself first turn (if you duplicate)

Reef Worm - protection from board wipes

FYI, Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip doesnt dup, because he is human (same as volo). Also, I found out that apparently Cascade doesnt work with Volo's ability. You dont get the token spell's Cascades ... because the second one YOU didnt cast.... Apex Devastator is still totally worth it for the first 4 cascades

Apex Devastator can be an absolute hero in a deck featuring this many powerful cards. Archetype of Endurance and Vigor also seem like excellent additions to protect your stuff.

Love that primer! Really nice work on that huge explanation! I'm going to use that as an inspiration to build something like that myself. Are you still working on and updating this deck? Maybe there are new cards like Apex Devastator that would fit nicely?! Anyway, thank you for your hard work!
