Sky_Blue_Skies on Essence of the Wild Hunt

2 weeks ago

Many thanks for your comment! I've honestly struggled quite a bit with deciding what the deck should use as its plan A. As I'm trying to make this more of a dedicated, janky vehicle for exploiting Essence of the Wild, I've given up some of the more conventional means of making it efficient or consistent. So far my approach has sought to strike a balance between including "generically good" cards that work reasonably well on their own as efficient token engines alongside cards that work specifically with Essence to enable absurd late-game boards. Results have been mixed, but by all indications early-game ramp should be an essential part of the deck, and for that reason I have doubled-up on mana dorks and stacked the three-drop slots with cards that work fine on turns 2-3 as a straight-up token strategy, but are also insane top-decks once Essence or Tendershoot Dryad is in play. My hope is that the deck can still be fun to play on casual tables even if I don't draw Essence and have to make due with crowding the board with spirits and saprolings, or by getting value out of Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Leonin Warleader, or Master of the Wild Hunt. While I fully appreciate the ubiquitous value of high-power removal spells like Path to Exile, I tend to hold off on playing these cards until someone in my playgroup annoys me enough to do so. On the other hand, I'd love to know if anyone has any thoughts on how to improve card selection in the early turns without messing too much with the balance of ramp-enablers and payoffs.

zapyourtumor on Mono Green Cats (Budget)

Pride Sovereign is great, although its probably more for GW. Feline Sovereign is a lord that also gives you artifact/enchantment removal. Prowling Serpopard is obviously great against any sort of counterspell-playing deck, although a bit expensive. Kaheera, the Orphanguard is also sorta expensive but you can just run one as a companion. Generous Stray isn't as good but its cheap and cantrips.

Some other 2-drop green cats are Feral Prowler and Initiate's Companion. Hungry Lynx is super good, but pretty expensive as well.

You could also maybe add some 1-drop cats like Scythe Leopard, Scythe Tiger, or Wild Nacatl (you'd have to run more colors for that though).

I would suggest going into GW colors. Even though the manabase won't be great with budget constraints you get access to so many more cats: Adorned Pouncer, Brimaz, King of Oreskos ($$$$), Leonin Vanguard, Regal Caracal, King of the Pride (this one is OP), Qasali Ambusher, Ajani's Pridemate (good with Leonin Vanguard, etc. This'll also give you good SB options like Felidar Cub/Qasali Pridemage (not sure if needed with Feline sovereign already removing artifacts/enchantments), Dromoka's Command, Leonin Arbiter, etc.

To answer your question about https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/armed-legion-edh/ , Brimaz is straightforward, easy to cast and surprisingly strong early game. His power/toughness ratio for his mana cost and ability is great, he let's you built freely around him (though he does encourage token strats).

Being mono color, you never have color issues (obviously) and it feels really fresh. Mono white, while having the reputation to be the weakest of the mono coloured EDH decks is quite playable with a good mana curve and ... artifacts, you can't forget them. That's why the deck has two directions.

Surprisingly synergistic too, since most of the token production is done trought creature that are worthy of equipment, especially Brimaz, King of Oreskos & Hero of Bladehold.

Arh I see Joumba, that makes sense! - your deck got me actually wondering if I should brew my own Brimaz, King of Oreskos. What is your experience with Brimaz as a fun white commander?

If you want the protection, use Giver of Runes and Mother of Runes, and if you want the tokens, try Hero of Bladehold or Brimaz, King of Oreskos.

And Druid's Deliverance seems far more useful than Invigorating Surge for my tokens to attack altogether and not die from collectively attacking a single creature that will kill them all in the process of me killing it with my collective attack, effectively giving me life-points as well through the life-link cats. This is why I'm replacing 1x Brimaz, King of Oreskos with 1 more Leonin Warleader, as I already get vigilance from my Companion, and I need lifelink.

I also think that I should run 4x Anointed Procession since that gives me drawing power for that card. And I'm not too fond of having 4x Ajani's Pridemate since I already have 1x Brimaz, King of Oreskos. To me, I could do with more Pride Sovereign or Leonin Warleader or Regal Caracal or Brimaz, King of Oreskos since this is mainly a tokens deck; can't forget that. I just need more cards besides Angelic Gift that give drawing power. Not creatures drawing, but overall deck. If anything I could get rid of Invigorating Surge since it's only useful for Ajani's Pridemate which would make it who knows what P/T, but I imagine it would be GIGANTIC, and I could use it on Fleecemane Lion as well which would end up giving it +4/+4 instead of +1/+1. As long as my opponent doesn't counter or remove my cards, I will be a happy camper. This is why I think I need to draw Prowling Serpopard, but only if I'm against control decks, and its 4/3 is not a bad thing either for 3 mana.
