Congregation at Dawn Discussion

Hey! I have some suggestions, hope they'll help:

discipleofgary73 on it's worth the Rhys

Hi! Thanks for the upvote.
A few suggestions:
Overwhelming Stampede rather than Overcome ; Sure your deck has many weenies, but by the time you're gonna want a 5 cmc mass trample for the win, you'll probably have something with larger than 2 power out.
Rule of Law is great for multiplayer, but Curse of Exhaustion might fit if you're gearing the deck for 1v1. If you are going for multiplayer, then Kismet works great at slowing opponents down without impacting yourself.
With the amount of PWs in the deck, Ignite the Beacon and Oath of Ajani might be worthwhile.
Phyrexian Rebirth could be a good board wipe, especially if you have crazy token amounts. Especially funny if you can combo it with Fresh Meat . Also funny with Requiem Angel out - a card worth including on its own, especially if you end up juggling your own tokens for other things.
Hardened Scales , Gavony Township , and Bloodspore Thrinax , could play nice with the +1/+1 subtheme.
Ashnod's Altar is great for utilizing creature tokens to get more things out.
Tireless Tracker might help with card draw later and gets some counters on its own.
The deck comp is pretty balanced, so Traverse the Ulvenwald might be effective. Congregation at Dawn and Chord of Calling are other tutor options if you find that the deck is more successful with particular creatures out.
I love swapping weaker tokens with Emrakul's Evangel (another fun fresh meat combo play). Of course, there is always Divine Visitation as well. It's easy to go overboard on doublers, but I figured I'd give a shout out to Primal Vigor and Second Harvest .
Swords to Plowshares for Pacifism ; might be better in some scenarios and always allows you to target your own creature to get some life out of it if you need to or if you go for the lifegain route.
Speaking of the lifegain route, if you want to go for it, here's some things that could work well: Phantom Nishoba , Wall of Reverence , Cradle of Vitality , Fumigate , Congregate , Blighted Steppe , Blossoming Sands , Gingerbread Cabin , Radiant Fountain , Graypelt Refuge , Kabira Crossroads , High Market , and Phyrexian Processor . The land balance will need to be played with if you want to swap the basics for some of those. Also, most Ajani PWs will work well for a more lifegain focused deck.
Now, when I think token generation, I think artifacts for many things. Thopter Assembly , Genesis Chamber , and Summoning Station come to mind. If you end up with more artifact tokens, you can use them with things like Krark-Clan Ironworks and Kuldotha Forgemaster . Also help with things like Dispatch .
Annnnnd one more suggestion if I haven't overstayed my welcome. Funny things can happen in token decks that put out a lot of creatures when you play The Great Aurora . Usually gives you a much stronger board state than opponents - might want to have a safety Reliquary Tower in for that hand size though!
Sorry if I doubled up on anything you had already considered!

I forgot a couple cards for putting creatures on top of your library. Congregation at Dawn works well with Sunforger, and Hua Tuo, Honored Physician is cheap reanimation.

Hey, good budget version of Gishath.

Congregation at Dawn ($2 at CardKingdom) and Mwonvuli Beast Tracker can search for Dinos/Dino and put them/it on top of your library before you attack with Gishath making sure that you cheat a Dino/Dinos onto the battlefield with the attack. Tracker can get any Dino who has trample and there's quite a few including Quartzwood. Shared Summons can get any two creatures into your hand which includes Forerunner and an enrage Dino.

Garruk's Uprising is a good repeatable draw and trample source with Dinos. Getting both these abilities from a three drop enchantment is helpful especially with Quartzwood. Rhythm of the Wild makes Gishath uncounterable as well as a haste enabler for other Dinos or a +1/+1 counter source to help against Marauding/Forerunner's damage to a creature. Jeska's Will can make ramp to cast a fast Gishath for as low as five mana. Make seven or more red mana with Will then add any one white mana and any one green mana.

Otepec Huntmaster as a ramp source is better than Kinjalli's Caller because Huntmaster is also a haste enabler for a Dino and rarely will you have white mana turn one to cast Caller. Apex Altisaur is a big Dino who's an upgrade for Burning Sun's Avatar repeatable fight with enrage and it fights an opponent's creature when it ETB.

Cinder Glade and Canopy Vista would help color fixing because then Farseek, Skyshroud Claim, Mountain Valley can search for a dual land and Battle lands have interaction with lots of basic lands. Path of Ancestry is a good budget Rainbow land for tribal since repeatable scry is helpful. Mosswort Bridge's hideaway can easily be triggered with Dinos. Some other budget lands are Battlefield Forge, Naya Panorama, Ash Barrens.


Cards to consider cutting:

Good luck with your deck.

TriusMalarky on NOT Tribal

Sounds plausible. IMO, there's not much in elemental tribal that's all that great for edh. So it'd effectively be a 5-color interactive deck with a handful of ways to tutor out the entire combo.

Buried Alive, Congregation at Dawn, Hermit Druid with no basics(easy in a 5 color deck), and a couple other tools can help it out.

You should also go super heavy on green, and mana dorks. You'll also want a good number of 2-mana rocks, mostly talismans, Fellwar Stone and Arcane Signet.

Then, add some random high power draw engines. Rhystic Study, Mystic Remora, Verity Circle are great. Just draw, draw, draw off them. Ramp, and hold up high power interaction.

DemonDragonJ on Commander Legends Spoilers

I would like to see both Congregation at Dawn and Signal the Clans (preferably downgraded to an uncommon) reprinted in this set, since they are both quite useful cards that have never been reprinted.

Apex devastator is the first chimera hydra in this game, and I see that it is as powerful as one would expect from such a creature.

Cuombajj Witches is a most unexpected reprint, but the new artwork is very nice.

psionictemplar on GW REANIMATOR

7 months ago

That's basically what I was doing. I ran the same 1 drops in max copies and used Time of Need to tutor iona up if I needed to. I also tried Congregation at Dawn to stack the deck for Fa'adiyah Seer. I never felt great about the build and scrapped it after a couple days of goldfishing. I may proxy your version up to see how I like it as well.

EgyptianSpaceGamer on The Martyr of Atla's Eggs

7 months ago

Trample enablers:

These two are good bombs... Aggressive Mammoth Thunderfoot Baloth

These cards are just valuable cheap trample enablers... Primal Rage, Ferocity of the Wilds, Archetype of Aggression, Khenra Charioteer

Garruk's Uprising is a good draw source when you populate 5/5 dragon tokens.

Brawn is a good creature to sacrifice early. It is more annoying for your opponents to deal with. The effect works from the graveyard, and draws out graveyard removal.

Additional Suggestions:

Also, there's an interaction with Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero + Mirror Entity + Atla Palani, Nest Tender that might interest you.

Reinforcements is a card that acts the same as Congregation at Dawn but in the late game, after board wipes and spot removal.

Also consider Kogla, the Titan Ape as he is opponent creature removal, artifact and enchantment removal, and can protect Atla Palani, Nest Tender from removal and board wipes with his last ability.

AEther Flash will kill all your eggs instantly, and make sure your opponents are punished for Avenger of Zendikar, tokens, weenies, etc.

Both Scapegoat and Fanatical Devotion are extremely valuable sacrifice outlets which can save select creatures from removal and board wipes.
