Hi folks!

So I want to see how I could capitalize more on Stubborn Denial and Ponder ing creative options.

Please suggest creatures, of any color, that could be cast for 1 mana, or less, and have or easily gain a power stat of 4 or more.

Here's what I got so far:

+++ Edit:

Levellers are off the table, they just need too much mana to pump.

Which ones am I missing? Not looking for creatures that get pumped by a specific other spell, but rather pump as I play, or get heavy cost reduction. I really need stuff that reaches power 4 quickly and/or easily and not jump through too many hoops.

Thanks in advance!

Grubbernaut take into consideration that while Gurmag Angler may seem very tempting, nowadays most decks seem to be able to handle the fish pretty well, while the decks that don't handle it very well don't care too much about it unless you drop it on an early turn. That's why Delver Angler doesn't see as much play anymore. I've already tested a more "dredgy" heavy deck, and turns out it just becomes a worse version of TortEx. Also if I were to run a self-mill card I'd run Grapple with the Past since it keeps the recursion theme while also milling cards with the upside of returning creatures to my hand as well. But either way, with the amount of interaction that I'm running it's not practical to run self-mill. I'm running Pestilence as a main-wincon because: a) It's a very efficient removal when necessary; b) It's a little bit harder to interact than Gurmag Angler, with the upside of not costing me six cards from my graveyard if it ever gets bounced back to my hand; c) The land approach to the deck allows me to have a more comfortable mana pool by the mid to end game to use it effectively. BUt of course: a) It costs me life to "block" a creature; b) Has the normal downside of the card; c) Can't be brought back from the graveyard.

Love the idea; I can understand why you're not currently running it, but it may be worth tweaking to get Satyr Wayfinder in the mix. That'd fuel a couple of Gurmag Angler s as wincons - but the deck would be fairly different, as a result.

Love it! Reminds me of my punishing jund list.

This looks awesome! What made you pick Tasigur, the Golden Fang over Gurmag Angler ? Do you ever activate him?

3> Ahhh I've been wanting to play with Obosh, the Preypiercer and Angrath's Marauders - glad you found a spot for them. While you're at it, you could also consider other "damage doublers" such as Wound Reflection and Fiendish Duo. I've thought about a Vial-Smasher deck with a White partner just to add Gisela, Blade of Goldnight.

3> I see you enjoy big monsters and X-spells here. Oh to be young again... but seriously, this seems like a good deck to play them in as you would be rewarded. Instants are your friend, as you can Smash Vials on everyone's turn! No Comet Storm?

3> I would be worried about Vial-Smasher getting nuked from orbit as soon as your turn passes and it's no longer indestructible. You'll find Heroic Intervention and Slippery Bogbonder will help with targeted Exile removal. You already have Destroy and Sacrifice covered I see.

3> I see some cost-reduced and commander-free spells in there, but you have a limited suite. While doing research for my thoughts on Vial-Smasher, I found the following might be helpful - list is just copy/paste, so it will include some White and/or Blue cards:

Milling makes me thing of fish and Gurmag Angler is only real so black can't mill because it already has the bigger fish.

Oops, Gurmag Angler is also a Zombie Fish.

Let's go with:

why no Viscera Seer,Carrion Feeder,Ashnod's Altar,Bloodthrone Vampire/Nantuko Husk?

btw you could replace Slum Reaper for Fleshbag Marauder. Tortured Existence goes incredibly well with Grave Scrabbler and other dredge/madness cards, along with delve cards like Gurmag Angler/Sultai Scavenger.

you could include Mesmeric Fiend for the same reason you got Faceless Butcher, a great removal for black is Snuff Out being free and all, same goes for Hymn to Tourach and Sinkhole but they might be banned in your play group. Unearth/Crypt Rats are grate cards aswell.

theres probably more but idk what to say so yeah good luck
