Dream Trawler Discussion

Squirrelbacon on Azorius Aggro — Pioneer Edition

I have not played pioneer in a while either, so take what I say with a grain of salt I suppose... There will be a TLDR.

Generally speaking, Weenie Hut can use some of the better token producers and can run with that idea pretty strongly. I'd suggest running 3 or 4 of History of Benalia , 3 of Legion's Landing  Flip, and then you can cut down to 1 of Castle Ardenvale if that helps you mana at all! Curious Obsession is fantastic in these types of decks, and so is Adanto Vanguard , so running 4 of both is your best bet as well. Skymarcher Aspirant is also another 4-of lock in my eyes. Spectral Sailor and Siren Stormtamer are early fliers with upside.

Another option is the run some planeswalker aggression through Gideon(s). Gideon, Ally of Zendikar is probably your best bet, however, my personal favorite version of him is Gideon Blackblade . The passive ability 4/4 indestructible that also gives vigilance, indestructible or lifelink can be very helpful!

If you utilize this type strategy, it does make cutting some creatures and cards overall pretty simple. Luminous Broodmoth just won't work with tokens, so that is probably an easy cut. Search for Azcanta  Flip is too slow, so I think that comes out. I think that Ephara comes out as well since the plan might change to flurry of little creatures between turns 1-2-3, the goal is to be empty handed and threatening to kill by turn 4 or 5. That also means Dream Trawler should go, but I'd understand wanting to keep a late game insurance policy.

TLDR-- Knights/White Weenie with a splash

History of Benalia , Dauntless Bodyguard , Gideon, Ally of Zendikar , Benalish Marshal

Tempo/ Weenie

Spectral Sailor , Siren Stormtamer , Brazen Borrower , Curious Obsession , History of Benalia , Legion's Landing  Flip

Hi, cool deck :) I would be interested in your experience with Dream Trawler and Dragonlord Ojutai . Are they worth their high mana cost? I'd also be interested in how Jubilant Skybonder performs for you.

I really think dark ritual is worth playing. I know it only generates 3, not 4, but it sets up turn 1 reanimate turns (Examples: [turn 1 dark, ritual, imp, discard fatty, exhume] [turn 1 dark ritual, imp, discard fatty, cull the weak, dread return])

Last I checked dark ritual is pretty cheap, I really recommend it. I could go either way on cabal ritual, it's almost always just going to be a 2 mana generate 3, so I don't think it it worth it.

Also, if a deck full of removal is messing with you, try Dream Trawler . It's a bit slower but really hard to kill. I doubt it's worth main decking, but its a good sideboard card for a lot of matchups.

I think there are better things to transmogrify into. Especially since Boros doesn't have too many powerful spells to recur.

The best build of this that I saw was a Jeskai build (so add blue) that transmogrified into Dream Trawler . That's a pretty safe bet for a finisher since it also protects itself.

If you wanted to stay in Boros, your current choice might be the best bet. Other possible options are Harmonious Archon , Terror of Mount Velus , and Yidaro, Wandering Monster .

Daedalus19876, thanks for the feedback, your list was also one of the ones that inspired me to actually build Vadrok. I did see Malignus in a few lists buuut in my playgroup I feel he’d be removed instantly. IMO I feel Dream Trawler covers the damage output of Malignus and protection of Stormsurge Kraken .

Frantic Search : This one is already in the list, def a amazing card

Curfew : You make a compelling argument I’ll be swapping this in

Deflecting Swat : I did want to include this originally, but I can see where it would be better in some cases over a counter so I’ll add this in

Grinning Ignus : Also a card I wanted to include, idk what it is but [[rootha, Mecurial artist] is just cool, buuut yeah, I do agree]] Ignus would see better plays

Mystic Reflection : Wait what?!? How do you do that? I’m guessing mutate Vadrok onto Ignus -> mystical reflection on the pile -> creature -> bounce pile to hand so no sac -> mutate Vadrok on copy, trigger, cast reflection targeting pile -> cast Ignus and repeat??? Also I did see in your list how you can use it for removal so I’ll find a spot for it

Silence and Grand Abolisher : I would prob add Teferi, Time Raveler over Abolisher just because Vadrok can recur him, silence is a solid maybe

Hedron Crab and Brain Freeze : the only reason I didn’t add these was because I’m trying to build my decks winconless, like the loops and infinite combos in the deck consist of cards that would never be dead in hand, I just feel these two would be bad draws if I’m not going to combo

This definitely helped, thanks for the feedback!

You want four of anything that you're never unhappy to draw. In the cards I listed, Ajani's Pridemate , Speaker of the Heavens , and Soul Warden should all be four-ofs, Heliod probably three just because you can't have more than one of him on the battlefield (legendary rule). Dream Trawler is one I forgot to mention, but he's a really good finishing creature, probably only 2-3 copies though.

Yeah, I can help you out with other decks if you need.

Why not transmogrify into something a little better than Terror of the Peaks? koma the world serpent is one of the best options, but not in your colors for hardcasting. Dream Trawler is maybe your best bet. It finishes games about as quickly as Terror, is harder to remove, draws you cards, and helps counter aggro decks. And ofc cut out the Leyline Tyrants.

Fiery Emancipation is just too little effect for too much mana. If you're at that much mana, use it to cast Dream Trawler, or Ugin, or make a bunch of tokens. I'd also recommend having more blue card selection/draw, or just more Mazemind Tomes. You'll be wanting to find that Transmogrify as quickly as possible.
