I think you should cut: Brutalizer Exarch, Conduit of Ruin, Frost Titan, Giant Adephage, Myr Battlesphere, Oblivion Sower, Pelakka Wurm, Phyrexian Ingester, Rashmi, Eternities Crafter, Rattleclaw Mystic, Sagu Mauler, Simic Sky Swallower, Sphinx Ambassador, Stalking Vengeance, Tornado Elemental, Plasm Capture, Pandemonium, Sunken Hope, Tezzeret the Seeker, Chromatic Lantern, Darksteel Ingot, Disaster Radius, Explosive Vegetation, Heat Shimmer, Rude Awakening, and Spelltwine. As for lands, I do think you should replace: Izzet Boilerworks, Spawning Bed, and Temple of the False God.

I think you should add: Temur Sabertooth, Genesis Ultimatum, Etali, Primal Storm, Skyshroud Claim, Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Chaos Warp, Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient, Terror of the Peaks, Kodama of the East Tree, Reclamation Sage, Kogla, the Titan Ape, Consecrated Sphinx, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Wood Elves, Ilharg, the Raze-Boar, Diluvian Primordial, Prime Speaker Zegana, Release to the Wind, Return of the Wildspeaker, Nature's Lore, Three Visits, Garruk's Uprising, Guardian Project, Unnatural Growth, and Arcane Signet.

I do think one option that you have is replacing all signets with mana dorks like Birds of Paradise, Llanowar Elves, and Elvish Mystic

If you are able to find more slots, I think you should consider: Hullbreaker Horror, Thryx, the Sudden Storm (dependent on count of spells with 5 cmc or more), Soothsaying, Mulldrifter, Beast Whisperer (dependent on final count of creatures), Rishkar's Expertise, Turntimber Symbiosis  Flip, See the Unwritten, Balefire Dragon, Scourge of the Throne, Bane of Progress (I feel like you do not have a ton of high value artifacts or enchantments that would cause this to cripple you), Momir Vig, Simic Visionary, and Genesis Storm.

Cheap permenants that you can lay down with Vaevectis or other similar cards that then also give you mana: Wood Elves, Farhaven Elf, and Solemn Simulacrum and Yavimaya Elder also lets you draw so you can sac him with Asmadi for a profit. For similar "when permanent enters the battlefield" effect maybe Reclamation Sage and Acidic Slime.

Consider creating tokens to sac with Asmadi as well: Dragonlair Spider and Grave Titan

Asmadi is always a huge threat so you'll have to keep him safe with cards like Sylvan Safekeeper Swiftfoot Boots and Whispersilk Cloak.

Chaos Warp is a staple of jund and you could use it if someone tries to get rid of Asmadi. Deathsprout and Decimate are really good jund removal cards as well. Primal Surge is a lot of mana but a good alternative win condition.

Also assuming that Asmaldi gets to stay on the field then here are some good cards that let you make sure whatever you get with him is good: Augur of Autumn, Haunted Crossroads, Hua Tuo, Honored Physician, Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire, Brutalizer Exarch, Courser of Kruphix, Vizier of the Menagerie, Crystal Ball, and Call of the Wild. On the other hand, here are some cards to make sure whatever your opponents get from Asmaldi isn't good: Painful Memories, Agonizing Memories.

Then here are some big creatures you could get for free with Asmaldi: Woodfall Primus, Borborygmos Enraged, Kodama of the East Tree, and Artisan of Kozilek. Lurking Predators is also useful for this feature as well as setting up what's on top of your deck.

Mortuary Mire is probably a good addition to the deck as well.

StonyYodelers on Blinking with the Roon

You should take Duplicant out of the maybe board and put it in the deck. Such a powerhouse of a card in Roon. I think you'd get a lot of really great value out of adding Sludge Monster as well. It doesn't exile the card, but that makes it better at dealing with commanders. You massively cripple commanders by hitting them with Sludge Monster, and because they're still alive, they can't just be recast, they've gotta be dealt with by someone first. With commander-centric decks, it stalls them out entirely for at least a few turns.

Brutalizer Exarch is another one that would be great in here. Repeatable creature tutor and battlefield control, all in one.

And you should put something like Craterhoof Behemoth in here for a finisher. The battlefield control in this is pretty good, but there doesn't seem to be a win-con aside from either attacking them for a very small amount of damage each turn or hoping your opponents scoop out of frustration. With a deck this heavy into control and battlefield manipulation, you need something to end the game relatively quickly or people won't want to play against it. Doesn't necessarily need to be craterhoof, but that's a real easy one card win-con lol.

Less necessary but a fun addition if you find the space for it at some point, Sundial of the Infinite is an easy way to permanently exile opponent creatures. Blink a creature with Roon or Mistmeadow Witch or something, then activate the Sundial, those creatures don't come back.

DemonDragonJ on Will WotC Ever Print Another …

9 months ago

MtG has been around for nearly 30 years, and yet, WotC has printed only a single creature that, upon entering the battlefield, allows its controller to unconditionally search their library for another creature, Brutalizer Exarch, which is a great card, but it is the only one of its kind. Also, the card that it finds is put atop its controller's library, not into their hand or onto the battlefield, so I feel that there is unexplored design space in that regard.

It is true that Rune-Scarred Demon can find any card and put it into its controller's hand, but I would like to have a green creature that specifically finds creatures and puts them into their owner's hands, as such a creature would be perfect for a Chulane, Teller of Tales or Ghired, Conclave Exile deck.

What does everyone else say about this? Will WotC ever print a creature that unconditionally searches for another creature and then put it either into its controller's hand or onto the battlefield?

Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

10 months ago

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

MULRAH on Elementals Toolbox

Ryan tried this deck out last night. He tried to get a value engine going with Hoofprints of the Stag but was eliminated from the game before that could really work. I wonder if he was being too proactive, when this deck is really more of a reactive deck. For example, if he'd tutored up Tornado Elemental instead of Hoofprints of the Stag, maybe could have taken out the flyer I'd been hitting him with repeatedly. He did use Brutalizer Exarch to eliminated one of my equipments, but he could have instead used it to go get Ingot Chewer , play it for its evoke cost to take out the same equipment, and then use it again from the graveyard with Horde of Notions . Once I was cut down to size, he could have then set up his value engine and start attacking with the multiple threats he had on the board.

TheVectornaut on Insane ramp idea - please help

I think Grothama, All-Devouring is needlessly risky anyway. I'd prefer something like Soul of the Harvest or Regal Force as a refill, even if Time of Need can't fetch them. These cards do have the benefit of being big enough to get searched out by one of my favorite green tutors, Fierce Empath . It's much cheaper to buy than Tooth and Nail , Green Sun's Zenith , and Summoner's Pact while being cheaper to cast than Chord of Calling , Primal Command , and Brutalizer Exarch .

I have a casual Primal Surge deck that's relatively similar to what you have here called Maximum Amplitude. From playing with it over the years, some cards that are less budget-friendly but I've had a lot of success with are Vexing Shusher , Garruk Wildspeaker , and good old Primeval Titan . Kessig Wolf Run is also a decent mana sink to win off even your smaller creatures in the late game.
