Chord of Calling

Instant

Convoke (Each creature you tap while playing this spell reduces its cost by or by one mana of that creature's color.)

Search your library for a creature card with converted mana cost/mana value X or less and put it onto the battlefield, then shuffle your library.

Though Chord of Calling is instant speed so it could be used on the opponents turn as a surprise. If the three green mana isn't intimidating it might be a better card to run than Eldritch Evolution

Those are great suggestions aholder7, I feel like Eldritch Evolution is the best one of those since there are multiple copies of the smaller creatures, you'd be able to sac one and guarantee to get Varloz. Feel like that's better than Time of Need cause it will give you Varloz ready after the spell resolves. Time of Need is good for just Varloz the other cards can get you Walking Ballista which can be grabbed the other spells incase you draw multiple copies. Chord of Calling feel like is too mana heavy and is not as cost effective even though it has convoke if you convoke there's a good chance you'll run out of creatures to attack with when Varloz is out.

in that case Time of Need to search out varolz. or Chord of Calling or Eldritch Evolution.

Max_Hammer on These silly hoomans - Need Help

Well hello there! I had way too much time on my hands, so here’s this. By the way, it’s all ordered best to worst. (:

Pay less to play more.

  • Circle of Dreams Druid is going to drop loads of mana, assuming you can pay the three green.
  • Fallaji Wayfarer is going to give all of your stuff (including your commander) convoke! Not all, but a lot.
  • Hamza, Guardian of Arashin is going to make a lot of your creatures cost a lot less.
  • Herald of War makes all of your humans dirt cheap if he gets counters. But, oh, what’s that? This deck loves making counters for creatures? Perfect.
  • Nissa's Expedition is just Cultivate but it potentially costs a lot less.
  • Gaea's Cradle is perfect if you have a small fortune laying around and you’re in need of mana.
I need more! More!!!

  • Bennie Bracks, Zoologist every time you make a token? So every turn? Alright, sick.
  • Ulvenwald Mysteries lets you investigate the murder of your entire army. A board wipe kills this deck, but this (plus loads of mana) could help bring it back.
  • Season of Growth lets you scry a lot, letting you look for pretty much whatever and just pull it out.
No, you’re not allowed to have that! Because I said so! Exile it! Now!

  • Devouring Light, Conclave Tribunal, Hour of Reckoning are all removal spells but if you’re on a mana budget with a lot of 1/1’s.
  • Elspeth Tirel is a board wipe, if you manage to keep her around for long enough. If that’s not what you need, though, she’s got plenty of utility otherwise.
  • Coordinated Barrage, Kabira Takedown  Flip, and Outflank aren’t super powerful, but can destroy pretty much anything that comes your way. If it’s not hexproofed, shrouded, or indestructible, it will be killed.
  • Devout Chaplain says “The power of Christ compels you! Begone!” but this time it actually works.
  • Sanctuary Lockdown lets you say “Not this combat phase, Satan,” and if you have enough mana, you can do that again and again and again. Plus, if you decide you can’t, then it’s still a big boy.
  • Kamahl's Will will destroy just about anything in sight and can give you extra attacking force, if you can manage a way to keep all of your lands safe.
Gotta keep your stuff safe, yeah?

  • Loxodon Hierarch is going to save your deck (which is very sensitive to board wipes) from a board wipe, judy once. Use wisely.
  • Scapegoat won’t save your tokens, but it will save everyone else, commander included.
  • Kindred Boon can slowly but surely make literally every creature you own indestructible.
  • Ephemeral Shields is extra protection that can easily be pulled out of your back pocket.
  • Basri's Lieutenant isn’t going to save your deck, but it will buy you time or give you a chance next turn at a kill, if the board wiper was low.
Make all of your stuff bigger!

Make more stuff! The theme of these suggestions is Give me more, if you couldn’t have guessed.

Might of the Masses is always fun in a creature deck, one green for a massive “Fuck you” at instant speed is great. Now here’s a bunch of Might of the Masses style cards.

I was looking for cards with the keyword “Human” and a million Gideon cards came up, so here’s all of the Gideon Planeswalkers. None of them are bad, per se, but all Gideon cards are not made equal.

  • Gideon, the Oathsworn just happens to slip and give all of your creatures an absurd number of counters. Not to mention the big body (noticing a pattern yet?) and the one-sided board wipe! He’s got a weird face again, sadly, pass.
  • Gideon, Champion of Justice is a board wipe and a big, bad creature all wrapped into one. 7/10, he can dominate me.
  • Gideon Jura can goad and destroy stuff. Perfect for removal and instigating fights when you know you’ll win. Not to mention the big scary 6/6 lurking beneath. Also a weird face, pass.
  • Gideon of the Trials reads “Fuck your biggest creature, he’s not going to do anything, and also, as long as I’m around, fuck you more.” Nothing crazy, but can definitely make you public enemy #1 for having an effect like that. Pretty normal face, but that ability makes him a dick. 3.4/10
  • Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip is just some kid. Ignore him. This is a child, pass.
  • Gideon, Battle-Forged!? Where did you come from? Nothing super interesting here, but for one mana not bad. Weird face, pass.
  • Gideon, Martial Paragon can give buffs to all of your stuff, which is definitely not bad at all, and your opponents are automatically dead if he gets that ten ability off. That said, this Gideon can get it. 10/10.
  • Gideon Blackblade is eh. He’s okay. He can get it, though. 7/10.
  • Gideon, Ally of Zendikar can do some generic Gideon stuff. Make tokens, give buffs, be a 4/4. Eh. 6.7/10.
This is just stuff I couldn’t find a specific panel for, so yeah.

Your deck is pretty spotless, so unless some of these are direct upgrades or you know what you want to take out, then this is all I have for you here.

  • Thraben Doomsayer’s first ability can be easily beaten by other cards, and his second ability is mostly useless, since you’re pretty screwed at 5 HP either way.
  • Heron's Grace Champion Lifelink is cool, but not something you super need. It’d be worth it if it was permanent, but it’s not, so pass.
  • Maja, Bretagard Protector just feels a little expensive for such a lackluster ability, Idunno.
  • JacobAGrossman on Glittering Company

    Big update with Dominaria United! King Darien XLVIII makes such a huge difference in the deck. It passively buffs all of my creatures, which is amazing. But, more importantly, it also provides a board where I can Collected Company or Chord of Calling out my Walking Ballista, and it will live. The Ballista is the best choice for the deck anyways, since it works with both Vizier of Remedies and Devoted Druid as well as Heliod, Sun-Crowned. So Ranger-Captain of Eos is back as well to round the whole thing out.

    On top of that, I'm trying out something new. Since Melira, Sylvok Outcast will continue to be relevant forever, as infect shifts to poison, I'm thinking about how to sub her out for game 2. If my opponent doesn't have infect or poison, Melira, Sylvok Outcast can start to hinder instead of help. I'll already have Vizier of Remedies and Heliod, Sun-Crowned for the Kitchen Finks combo. So instead of continuing to hurt the Devoted Druid and Vizier of Remedies combo for game 2, I'm seeing how substituting Fiend Artisan for Melira, Sylvok Outcast will go for now. Seems like a good fit, and could be versatile enough to make sense.

    Additionally, Ajani, Sleeper Agent is amazing. A potentially 3 costing planeswalker on the side to Glittering Wish for just can't be beat. And it's also fantastically good

    Triton on Tweaking Naya Tokens

    3 months ago

    Recently put together a Naya token deck with Tana, the Bloodsower and Prava of the Steel Legion, and needed suggestions on what to cut for Angelic Exaltation and Chord of Calling. If there are any better suggestions than the former of the two, I'd love to hear them! The deck as-is struggles with starting up token generation I've noticed, is there anything I'm missing potentially to get a large army out?

    Here's the deck in question:

    Awww, maaaaaan, I have some thoughts here:

    • To assist with token generating, Field of the Dead is really easy to turn on in commander (you might then re-balance the number of basics and snow-covered basics, but that's minor). Avenger of Zendikar is also a possibly good choice to help get you as many tokens as possible and to make them bigger.
    • You have quite few boardwipes, but the one I would argue is a must-include for this deck (if possible) is The Meathook Massacre, because it can just as easily kill your opponents as it cleans the board. (It being an enchantment means bonus fun with trying to get rid of it!) Assassin's Trophy is a good spot-removal: not absolutely necessary, but troublesome permanents can ruin your day and quite a few decks are very basic land-light. Living Death is another unusual board wipe to consider, especially if you're in on the sacrifice strategy. Damnation is, of course, a classic to kill All the Things, though my preference is really for Meathook.
    • Chord of Calling might be good to consider, and not just for your creatures... I might also add Worldly Tutor and/or Vampiric Tutor.
    • With all of your tokens that happen to be X/1, maybe Skullclamp is a smart idea.
