Battle Hymn Discussion

Pikobyte on Xyris Machine Gun

Heya, love your videos. Excited to see you play Xyris since I fell in love with it. I just have a few suggestions to improve the deck. Cards like Battle Hymn, Phyrexian Altar, Xenagos, the Reveler and especially Earthcraft generate insane amounts of mana from your wheels and allow you to chain wheels together and dig for a wincon. They do massiv work for me in my Xyris deck and make the deck play storm-like. Feel free to take a look at my list and description, maybe you find some new toys to play with. Would love to see some of that stuff in future videos :-)

Cards that produce mana for your tokens work extremely well in my Xyris. Battle Hymn or Xenagos, the Reveler are cheap ones, there are more expensive options like Earthcraft or Phyrexian Altar too. Feel free to check my list to get an idea. It runs extremely well and explosive so far

Some really good suggestions - thanks! I like Burn at the Stake, and Impact Tremors. I had a Dogpile laying around and threw it in, but a more concerted effort with direct damage via Convoke is a good way to go. I have a number of X spells, so will think on Battle Hymn.

I like Soulblast as a sneaky counter to a board wipe.

Impact Tremors reminds me of what I built into a Marchesa deck I have. It's F-ing amazing how much damage a card like that can do in a 40 pt game.

So now I just have to figure out what I want to jetison.

That’s a solid starting list. Few suggestions if you don’t mind: Whirlpool Warrior is another nice wheel, even double wheel for you. Also you got enough wheels to change your gameplan. Cut a few of your grouphug cards like howling mine. I played them too and realized quickly that they don’t do much. Add in an Anger for haste when you discard it and play cards that give you insane amounts of mana like Battle Hymn or Xenagos, the Reveler. Those allow you to play like 5-7 wheels in one turn and create insane amounts of hasty tokens to stomp your opponents. Also Underworld Breach combos with battle hymn, cryptolite rite with haste and any discard wheel to let everyone draw their deck, make truckloads of tokens and finish your opponents. Feel free to take a look at my list for a proper description of my suggestions here. +1 for a solid starter list

In the same vein of Dogpile bieng a red card that cares about a bunch of creatures, Burn at the Stake might be useful, Soulblast could be a way to take out a player, Battle Hymn is also a nice card if you have a board full of tokens for a big X spell, and honestly if you're cranking out tokens regularly with Rith, Impact Tremors effects could be worth it. Cool deck, never thought about a naya convoke deck before.

Looks solid to start but you should add cards like Xenagos, the Reveler, Battle Hymn and/or Phyrexian Altar that turns your wheels into more mana to chain wheels together. Pair that with Underworld Breach and you got a win combo with any discard wheel. Feel free to take a look at my list to see what I mean. That strategy works really well in my deck and often ends the game Storm-like

Pikobyte Out of everything you named I'd probably only add Battle Hymn. I like my decks to be different and not OP I have a more laid back casual playgroup.

Yes but stuff like Craterhoof Behemoth is just better than multani plus stampede. Purphoros, God of the Forge is a 2nd and better impact tremors and so on. The already mentioned goblin bombardment is awesome, Beastmaster Ascension does nice here and many more. It’s a unique take on Xyris for sure, but it could be more efficient. You could add more ways to generate mana from your tokens like Xenagos, the Reveler and Battle Hymn. At least that’s what I did with my Xyris and it works great. It plays storm-like, you just chain wheels, generating absurd amounts of mana and drawing into a wincon
