Jack-Frost on Pako and Haldan, Avid Retriever *Primer*

2 weeks ago

Apokalypsi I did, and he's honestly a great card for this deck. The only reasons I don't run him are the fact that firstly he's a 5 drop which is expensive, but also because there are only two cards in my deck that trigger him being Pako, Arcane Retriever and Etali, Primal Storm. I'm honestly still considering him, which is why he's in my maybeboard, but i'm just not really sure what i'd want to cut for him. I'll take another look again and reconsider, so thank you so much for the suggestion. I'm glad you liked the deck!

Why Etali, Primal Conqueror  Flip is preferable to Etali, Primal Storm?

Etali, Primal Conqueror  Flip comes into play and lets you play 4 Spells (in a 4 Palyer Commander) for free and not on the attack trigger first, at the risk of revealing 4 lands.

If you're not going infinite combos, I'd take out Ancestral Statue, since it's a one-card infinite combo with your commander. I stopped running it in my Animar deck because it feels so cheap.

The biggest thing I see is you need like 10 more land, since you always want to hit Animar mana. I'd also look into more creature cascaders instead of non-creatures, as creatures will get your Animar discount. Apex Devastator, Maelstrom Colossus, Etali, Primal Conqueror  Flip, and Etali, Primal Storm will add a lot of cascade power.

I cut both Audacious Thief and Etali, Primal Storm a while ago and haven't really looked back or missed either. That's my personal taste though.

When I played Audacious Thief, I realized that it's basically a slower Phyrexian Arena without Isshin on the table; another card I don't really play much of any more. Etali is fun, but it's also very boom or bust. I've had some explosive plays with Etali, and I've had some whiffs. The lack of consistency, and vulnerability to removal for a turn rotation without haste was why I eventually cut Etali.

I've had Horn of the Mark on my radar, but haven't been in a rush to add it. There are definitely times where I'd rather be drawing into removal or protection effects more than I want more creatures. Regardless, digging through 10 cards to re-up on 2 creatures isn't too bad, but can be feels bad if you filter out other spells you may need at that point in the game.

Personally, I would keep Breena. I am biased because she's helped me close out a few games with her +1/+1 counters. My meta leans aggro, so my opponents more often than not let her stick around because they benefit, meanwhile I'm spreading counters out over my board, or stacking them up on Breena. Due to this benefit, people may aim whatever they draw into at each other instead of you. I've had games where she's reached 20+ power and proceeded to snipe other players once their life was low enough.

If anything, I'd replace Audacious Thief with Goldspan Dragon. It has Haste and Flying, it makes your treasures tap for 2 mana instead, and you're already running Professional Face-Breaker and Lannery Storm. The treasure support between those 3 is nothing to scoff at, especially if you can get at least 2 of them on the board in tandem.

Crow_Umbra, what are your thoughts on Audacious Thief? Does he often draw you more than 2 cards per game, or does he get chumped blocked to death the first time you swing with him? Are you even able to swing with him usually, or is the idea that he is basically combat tribute for his card draw? Would Etali, Primal Storm be more impactful? I know having your protection get hung out to dry in exile when you don't want it to could be a major bummer, but it's only two cards from your own deck. What about Horn of the Mark? Have you played around with that card at all? Also, I'm thinking about cutting Breena, the Demagogue. I feel like the 4 +1/+1 counters don't really benefit me as much as the two cards my opponents get to draw benefits them. I am thinking of cutting Breena pretty hard, and Audacious Thief feels like it may need to go too, but I don't want to go too creature light in the deck, as it really is about combat with creatures. Anyway, thanks in advance for any thoughts.
