Chord of Calling Discussion
1 week ago
Hi and thanks for your suggestions. Narset's Reversal really is a good card I just missed out. Didnt think of these interactions. Also getting rid of 1-2 fatties might be a good idea while including Chord of Calling . What kept me from adding Mystical Tutor and Worldly Tutor is, that i have to shuffle my library and put the card on top. So copying the spell doesnt work unless I can draw a card in between. Even without the copy potential, the cards are good though, so I will consider playing them. When I first saw the Storm-Kiln Artist in the spoiler, I thought WOW good UC for the deck. But after a bit of pondering, I realized, that I will have a 2/2 critter for 4 Mana without any impact, that will mostly die before creating treasures. So I decided not to play it. Roiling Regrowth and Force of Vigor are worth a bit of pondering, that might be true. Yeah and I already added some of the Lands in the paper version.
Thanks for your help, I really appriciate it!

Hey, you're missing one of the best cards with Kalamax and magecraft, Narset's Reversal . Use Kalamax copy of Reversal to send the original Reversal back to your hand and resolve the copies. With Kalamax it becomes a repeatable Fork that can be major disruption for your opponents. Reversal also combos with Twinning Staff to make infinite copies of Reversal.
Chord of Calling is very good if you want to play big creatures with Kalamax. For nine mana you can tutor for and cheat two 6 CMC or less creatures onto the battlefield. This interaction is popular with the Kiki + Pestermite combo as a win condition. You would be better off playing a few big creatures and instant Chord that has interaction with Kalamax then eight big creatures which is a lot.
Mystical Tutor is an instant tutor to get any two instant or sorceries. Worldly Tutor can get any two creatures. Solve the Equation can also get any instant or sorcery. Merchant Scroll can get any blue instant. Long-Term Plans can tutor for any two cards and with so much draw with Kalamax Plans has less of a drawback. Noxious Revival and/or Reclaim can recur any two cards.
If wanting to make lots of mana than Storm-Kiln Artist can help. His magecraft is excellent with Kalamax and a Fork which creates infinite treasures for infinite mana. Comet Storm becomes a win condition with infinite treasures. Artist is really good with the strategy of repeatedly casting/copying instants by making treasures which is better than just making mana especially with Narset's Reversal . Creating two treasures just by casting Reversal and then if copying an instant you make more treasures as Reversal copies the spell on the stack. Roiling Regrowth is another Harrow for more basic land ramp.
Good luck with your deck.

Hey I know we were talking some green creature tutors for you. Here some options that are "budget" options, in order of cheapest to most expensive

I'm glad you like it, cmilner! I was thinking about adding the Dark Depths and Thespian's Stage combo, but I decided not to do it, because I would be too tempted to search for them every time. It's the same reason I'm not including Triskelion or Walking Ballista , even though Mikaeus would be happy to have them. When it comes to Phyrexian Obliterator , I'm constantly thinking about replacing it with Phyrexian Delver , but I can't bring myself to cut what may be one of my favorite magic cards, even though I'm pretty sure the Delver would be much more syngergistic. I'm hung up on one day casting Necromancy or Chord of Calling and blocking some 15/15 with the Obliterator :D Also, lately I've been thinking about replacing Lightning Greaves with the new Rushed Rebirth from Strixhaven. Seems like a perfect card for this deck. The only problem is it's mostly a one and done effect.

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.

Yea I actually do have a few of the expensive ones already that I had in an old bag of cards. I have Karn, nylea, rhonas, and xenagos already. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Finale of Devastation I kinda put in as hopeful cards but probably won't get them unless they miraculously show up for under 10 bucks on eBay. I have done a few playtests of this deck and found that with the 4 Time of Need and 2 Adventure Awaits you can get what you want very quickly. I agree that Yisan is not a good fit and Jadelight ranger could probably be replaced with something better. I just threw it in there to get more lands out but the idea is to kinda stack one land to repeatedly untap. I do like Chord of Calling and Pathrazer of Ulamog a lot though. The only thing is I wanted to have more legendary creatures rather than not so that time of need could have access to more creatures depending on the situation. As far as money goes, we luckily have a local shop by us that sells these cards for far cheaper than the price advertised on this site. The only thing they don't have there are the huge creatures ie Emrakul, the Aeons Torn or Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger . Realistically not going to end up with either but the thought of potentially dropping either on turn 3 is just so nice. Since I was planning on this deck being geared towards multiplayer I was thinking of throwing in a Hydra Omnivore and maybe one or two Destiny Spinner to ensure that all of this doesn't get countered as my friend loves to do. Seedborn Muse along with Omnath, Locus of Mana and a Helix Pinnacle would be a pretty cool combo but not entirely necessary. What other untap creatures/ enchantment ramp stuff were you thinking of?
