Thanks for the advice carpecanum! I didn’t put Rosheen Meanderer in because in my opinion it would be a bit one dimensional in that it would only aid me if I was about to win, and would lose a lot of its functionality if I was behind.

Copying Mob Rule like that wouldn’t work because when a modal spell is copied, you aren’t given a chance to make new selections for it. The one you chose stays as the default with no option to change it.

The Pyromancer's Goggles are definitely an interesting option though, since they offer the capability to copy every turn with no recurring cost, which could strengthen the deck’s preparatory stages. I’ll have to decide what to cut to open up a spot for it, possibly Dragonlair Spider, as I’ve found it to be a bit slow. Thanks for your help!

These are the things I don't think are very strong in the deck at the moment.

Death Denied just takes them to your hand and most of the ones you want are big, it would probably be better if it put them on top of your library. The same could be said for Darigaaz's Charm, Phyrexian Reclamation, Necromantic Thirst, and Disentomb.

I don't think Charmbreaker Devils, Xira Arien, Staff of Nin, or Yurlok of Scorch Thrash add anything to this deck at all.

I'm not sure Hoarding Dragon and Lathliss, Dragon Queen is that good; are these really worth it? This doesn't seem like a dragon focus deck really, even though you do have a few dragons. I think the energy is better spent focusing on another theme like big creatures and sacrificing, ramping, or jund control.

Jund Battlemage puts tokens onto the field but it costs a mana I'm not 100% sure it's worth. Something like Dragonlair Spider or Grave Titan like I mentioned in my last comment are more worth it imo.

I don't like Shreds of Sanity because there aren't that many instants or sorceries in the deck to begin with and I feel that the deck would be stronger if it focused on it's creatures anyway.

Cheap permenants that you can lay down with Vaevectis or other similar cards that then also give you mana: Wood Elves, Farhaven Elf, and Solemn Simulacrum and Yavimaya Elder also lets you draw so you can sac him with Asmadi for a profit. For similar "when permanent enters the battlefield" effect maybe Reclamation Sage and Acidic Slime.

Consider creating tokens to sac with Asmadi as well: Dragonlair Spider and Grave Titan

Asmadi is always a huge threat so you'll have to keep him safe with cards like Sylvan Safekeeper Swiftfoot Boots and Whispersilk Cloak.

Chaos Warp is a staple of jund and you could use it if someone tries to get rid of Asmadi. Deathsprout and Decimate are really good jund removal cards as well. Primal Surge is a lot of mana but a good alternative win condition.

Also assuming that Asmaldi gets to stay on the field then here are some good cards that let you make sure whatever you get with him is good: Augur of Autumn, Haunted Crossroads, Hua Tuo, Honored Physician, Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire, Brutalizer Exarch, Courser of Kruphix, Vizier of the Menagerie, Crystal Ball, and Call of the Wild. On the other hand, here are some cards to make sure whatever your opponents get from Asmaldi isn't good: Painful Memories, Agonizing Memories.

Then here are some big creatures you could get for free with Asmaldi: Woodfall Primus, Borborygmos Enraged, Kodama of the East Tree, and Artisan of Kozilek. Lurking Predators is also useful for this feature as well as setting up what's on top of your deck.

Mortuary Mire is probably a good addition to the deck as well.

I'd say that if one of your bomb cards doesn't give you nigh insurmountable value ASAP, you don't need it. Dragonlair Spider strikes me as one such "meh" card. The thing I'd do to get a new lens on cuts is run each card through these filters:

  1. Does it draw me cards?

  2. Does it ramp my mana?

  3. Does it interact with my opponents' threats?

  4. Does it contribute to the general web of synergy I'm building, or is it just generic value?

  5. Does the card have significant impact on the board, or is the effect nominal?

  6. Does playing the card feel strong, or is it mediocre most of the time?

  7. Again, does it feel like your huge threat that you've put into play is just not significantly contributing to your win?

If the answer to most of those is no, consider a cut.

Sultai_Sir on Best Creatures to Copy?

1 year ago

I'm building a Riku of Two Reflections deck with a subtheme of Brudiclad madness, and I was wondering what creatures to copy, I've got a couple great ones on the list:

I'm looking for creatures that give you exponential value, or creatures that are just better with more of them. And please, no Biovisionaries. Thanks!
