hkhssweiss What would you suggest that I take out to add in the Mayhem Devil? I have the card and it was originally in the deck, up until I started making all kinds of changes lol

I also used to run Dragonlair Spider but opted to switch it out for Arasta of the Endless Web. Even though it will not spit out as many tokens, they at least offer me Reach.

Ulasht is one of my favorites! There are many lines of play that you can take for powerful endgame plans, and you've got a lot of them in here.

Some changes I would make start with trimming down your mana curve. Your creatures are almost all haymakers. The way it stands, your gameplan is a bit too slow. I would begin by choosing a few big creatures that have the most impact and supporting them, cutting the rest. Avenger of Zendikar is a great card, but works better with a higher land count. Deus of Calamity has no immediate board influence. Same goes for Borborygmos. I do like Hornet Queen, Vigor and I would choose between either Dragon Broodmother OR Dragonlair Spider. Add in Craterhoof Behemoth, or, if that's out of budget, End-Raze Forerunners as a great win condition. Tendershoot Dryad is amazing, too.

Other important additions are mana dorks. They are the most efficient way to ramp into your larger things, while also making Ulasht bigger. Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, Arbor Elf, Fyndhorn Elves, Boreal Druid, Zhur-Taa Druid, Radha, Heir to Keld all want to be in this deck. You're in green, so mana rocks not named Sol Ring or Mana Vault/Crypt can be dropped. Fecundity, too, as you don't have enough sac outlets to really garner a lot of value.

I would also say that your land count is low. Even with a bunch of mana dorks, you'll be mulliganning far more often than is comfortable. Add in a few more dual lands, or even basics, to smooth that out.

Hope some of this helps!

HI I like everything untill I saw your creatures and artifacts. I know this is casual. But there are a few cards here that are a bit of. And I think your build could do better with other cards. For example Dragonlair Spider isen't helping the strategy where a Oracle of Mul Daya really would help the strategy. If think if you focus more on the land bursting your deck will flow better with valakut.

But that depends if you wanna have your deck like that. Maybe you rather stomp with creatures instead. If so your deck should include Rampaging Baloths.

Hmmm, there are a bit of things you can add in as I tried playtesting it earlier and it definitely feels a bit clunky. Your goal is to make a lot of tokens and use them to kill people. You should focus more on value cards like i.e.

Just to make some tokens while you are idle. And some kill effects like Triumph of the Hordes or effects like those. What is the main goal you want to do?

do you have a way to pump tokens? Dragonlair Spider is great for chump blocks, but becomes way better if you have stuff like Nissa, Voice of Zendikar or Cathars' Crusade.

I love sphinxes so I'm biased, but I think SoE is exactly the kind of card this deck wants -- politics win.

Gleeock - Yeah, I can definitely get behind Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin; especially with Reconnaissance and Shalai, Voice of Plenty in the 99 :D

Do you think he's better than Anax, Hardened in the Forge, Arasta of the Endless Web/Dragonlair Spider, Assemble the Legion or Darien, King of Kjeldor??

Thieves' Auction is brutal haha, I didn't realize it only exiled nontokens! Definitely finding a spot for that one and Genesis Wave. I think those effects are enough to warrant spots for more non-permanents.

Is Sword of Truth and Justice just for the protection? Not sure how it benefits my strategy.

Thanks for your help!!

I have decided to name the deck "Kill them with Kindness," because that name makes the most sense, to me.

Is Dragonlair Spider a good card for a Kynaios and Tiro deck? Does it fit with the theme?
