Atla Palani, Nest Tender Discussion

MagicMarc on Atla Aristocreggs

Hi! I like the deck idea but wanted to point something out. In your description, you say " Mirror Entity is probably the best non-combo creature in this deck.".

Mirror Entity is actually the best combo card in your deck with Atla Palani, Nest Tender . It is a 2 card infinite combo with Atla if you pump Atla in any way.

So, You do it like this; Pump Atla with something, Use Mirror Entity 's ability for 0 once.

With this on the stack, activate it again, then again, then again for some crazy number of times like 10000000.

Then let the first trigger resolve, this kills your Mirror Entity but not your Atla who is a pumped 0/0.

Mirror Entity was an egg when it died, triggering Atla. Atla's trigger gets on the stack.

Get a creature with a ETB ability, then it's ability goes on the stack, resolves.

Then the next Mirror Entity triggers resolves; the creature that just got played becomes a 0/0 egg, dies, triggrering Atla again.

Keep doing it until you resolve all of the triggers or win the game!

I've long been a fan and casual player of Mayael the Anima , but in times to move on, a new C19 commander, Atla Palani, Nest Tender caught my eye. Curious, I began building around her and she's loads of fun! My enthusiasm even sparked my competitive friend to build a combo-based version. I made a list, but in compliance with forum rules I won't post my decklist… I'll just say that I'm REALLY interested in tuning the deck since she really requires a very delicate balance of everything. I'll just look forward to having some discussion here? She's still pretty new, and not overly competitive, so there's not a ton of resources out there for help. Anyhow, thoughts? Comments? Resources?

  • Could use more mana dorks.
  • Nix the Guild Globe . It is actually a bad card. Replace it with a locket or cluestone.
  • Atla Palani, Nest Tender is an incredibly good card. It should be in your mainboard, if not your commander.
  • Huatli, Dinosaur Knight is an expensive card to cast, and its abilities aren't the best. You can easily fill its slot with Samut, Voice of Dissent . Haste and a strong creature is better than a planeswalker.
  • Start considering the speed of the deck if you want to make it more aggro.

@thewyzman I think you could easily argue that Atla Palani, Nest Tender is the stronger of the two in the command zone. She doesn't have the same deck-building constraints as Mayael (throwing in some sac outlets for those egg tokens is waaaaay less demanding than 25+ big creatures) and is pretty much guaranteed never to whiff. I've even seen some really cool combo builds with only a few creatures in the deck, so saccing an egg token is effectively like tutoring for your win-con. If you're looking to be more competitive, I'd recommend retooling your deck to run Atla as the general.

As a second in command, she's perfectly serviceable. Don't expect to be maximizing her value though. There are not enough utility slots in this deck to include the really good sac outlets for those eggs ( Skullclamp , Ashnod's Altar , etc.) so you'll usually have to wait for them to die on their own.

@Ataraxey Vedalken Orrery was working well, but I think Birthing Pod outclasses it. Both options allow us to be more responsive to our opponents' plays, but Pod is both faster and works better with our substantial creature toolbox. I haven't been playing with it for very long, but it's gotten me out of quite a few jams already. Saccing an obsolete Wayward Swordtooth to grab Surrak, the Hunt Caller , then dropping a hasted Balefire Dragon feels incredible.

@bankrupt_on_selling I really do like Highcliff Felidar . I'll be testing it for sure, probably in place of Thorn Mammoth . Felidar is likely to kill more things, but Mammoth gives you the option to snipe pesky utility creatures that Felidar can't hit.

Commander / EDH* BMHKain


(Not even Mayael the Anima can't sing an Aria to save her life anymore.)

NOTICE BEFORE QUESTION: Initially, this was meant to be a Mayael the Anima deck all around; even conforming to newer; & better standards. Then, after several thoughts over her, I wanted to make a WAY better Mayael the Anima -Deck. Atla Palani, Nest Tender was just that. Saccing Eggs to find some of the Most Powerful that Mayael can also do. But I believe that after what I get after all this, Mayael will only be an Afterthought. Questions? Well, here we go...

Q1: In terms of Range of Power; The Magic No. is 4 Power. Namely Stuff w/ Great Effects; 4+ Powered Powerhouses, & just great effects. What do you think is the best out of the ones Printed as of currently? There are so many, I can't mention them all...

Q2: Oh, almost forgot. Assuming the Sac Engines needed to make Egg Tokens that create Monsters w/ incredible power, what exactly would you want to cut & proceed? Also: SACRIFICES MUST BE MADE. (As of this update: this has 127 Cards now.)

Q3: While I've an optimal amount of Instants, I have much fewer SORCERIES. Does this deck need anymore of them, or is it just fine?

Q4 FINAL: The whole purpose of this deck is to bring an entire army to the table in ONE TURN. Since this is /Naya/AGGRO, I want to know your thoughts for how to do it through sacking Eggs & bringing Fat to life in Adult Form. Based on these terms; how would you do this?

Finally, I have to ask: Am I doing too many Help Wanted Deck Help Threads? I'm just curious; that & I couldn't remember what I was initially going to say; that, & I'm apparently doing too little to help my case of trying all I can to help my problems; & from there, for such great people like you.

Hope this helps! :D

Zifier - I am still updating it with every new set. I just haven't been active with paper Magic. I am going to switch out Gishath for Atla Palani, Nest Tender and I will be adding in some tasty combos for her. I feel like the deck will be faster and more competitive. I have managed to pull some fast victories with this deck against Power 10 or 9 decks.

If I had no budget I would put the three original duel lands for sure and Mana Crypt. I don't know what else I would put in there.

I have all the cards to upgrade the deck, just too lazy to do it.

I've been playing Mayael off and on throughout the years, never too consistently as I don't always have the patience or fortitude to carry on when being repeatedly stomped by more competitive, more consistent decks... but salt aside, the question I have is: Have you considered the new Atla Palani, Nest Tender ? I'm thinking of converting my Mayael deck into a more token/populate-oriented likeness of a Mayael deck, but under Atla. If I kept Mayal as general, I might consider running her as an officer? She could do some things.

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor yeah I totally forgot about multiple creature tutors thanks as far as Atla Palani, Nest Tender goes she will probably go in at least for now but the way my playgroup is the eggs would almost never die when she is on the field, and she is perhaps a bit too random for the deck to work correctly but that does seem fun to do! Finally, as far as the other big boys go, I'll put them in because more win-con cards will always be useful. Thanks for the +1 and suggestions!
