DemonDragonJ on Will WotC Ever Print Another …

2 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

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.

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.

YES that's the kind of synergy I LOVE

Brutalizer Exarch really is great, isn't it? I sometimes forget it can tuck shit because it'd be good enough with just the tutor mode.

I find it interesting your deck can pivot into a more political mode, I have a little bit of a hard time convincing people my Avacyn, Angel of Hope won't affect them.

I actually quite like the idea of play testing against your Kinnan deck, do you have it on T/O? Couldn't find it in my quick search I did. May just be my incompetence ;D

Brutalizer Exarch and Momir Vig, Simic Visionary both could be useful as a tutor of sorts, especially if you stack the triggers right. Hua Tuo, Honored Physician could also set you up for some reanimation-esque stuff.
