Descendants' Path


At the beginning of your upkeep, reveal the top card of your library. If it's a creature card that shares a creature type with a creature you control, you can cast this card without paying its mana cost. Otherwise, put it at the bottom of your library.

lhetrick13: Thank you for the comment. As a filthy casual, I found commander really easy to get into. I would only play kitchen table with friends and family, sometimes going to prereleases. The only thing I found hard to grasp was commander damage. At home we don't even keep track of it.

Descendants' Path and Lurking Predators were considered for the deck but were cut because of space limitations.

First off, love the deck list. I am in the transition from online to paper and looking at switching from modern to commander and this deck has been helping me with that transition. My modern Dino deck has some similarities but commander is so different with so much more to draw from…steep leaning curve!

I did want to ask, you have so much for draws in this deck but did you ever consider something like Descendants' Path? It is a little slow for modern but I thought it might fit well here.

llengot on What happens with Descendants' Path …

I know Oracle's text is supposed to be more clear than the printed text, but with Descendants' Path is getting me more confused.

The last part of the printed text says: "Otherwise, put that card on the bottom of your library." So, by "otherwise" I understand that if the revealed card if not a creature, or it is a creature that doesn't share a type with a creature I already control, or I choose not to cast it; that card goes to the bottom of my library.

But now... the oracle text says "If you don't cast it, put it on the bottom of your library." So, going to the bottom of library only happens if I choose not to cast it? And therefore, non-creatures and creatures of other types stay at the top?

Can someone clarify that, please? Thanks a lot!

Or, well, forests and plains. Yeah Descendants' Path is incredibly nasty in tribes decks, especially if they go heavy on creatures like slivers do Also, thanks for the Collected Company suggestion, didn't know that card! Might work very well here...

Descendants' Path tribal tricks.

Hall of Gemstone brutal in

Hum of the Radix since your deck doesn't utilize many.

Mutavault seems useful.

Skyshroud Poacher seems really useful.

Konda's Banner to finish out the playset of artifact anthem effects.

Niko9 this deck used to run on Muraganda Petroglyphs; I can't be expected to remember what cards do! but Ayula changed that and Realmwalker solidified it.

Descendants' Path is kind of a budget Aether Vial but is cute to activate Mutavault on upkeep, we'll see if I ever want to make that investment.
