Invasion of Ikoria

Battle — Siege

(As a Siege enters, choose an opponent to protect it. You and others can attack it. When it's defeated, exile it, then cast it transformed.)

When Invasion of Ikoria enters the battlefield, search your library and/or graveyard for a non-Human creature card with converted mana cost/mana value X or less and put it onto the battlefield. If you search your library this way, shuffle your library.

To consider:

Tough Cookie from Wilds of Eldraine fulfills the 3x food requirement for both Sam and Pippin, and works well next to Feasting Hobbit to support the beatdown side-plan. Noncreature artifact doesn't have to be food, so I could run artifact lands if I really wanted to get cute, but basics are probably still better. It also lets Witch's Oven and Altar of Dementia sacrifice themselves in response to removal, which is non-zero value.

Maybe dropping the Deadly Dispute and Trail of Crumbs for 4x Collected Company? It broadcasts itself in a deck that otherwise runs at sorcery speed, but the power level is undeniable. Would probably want a creature-based sac outlet that can be found by Company to get the Sam combo, since you're losing the ability to find Altar of Dementia with Trail of Crumbs (and/or a creature to feed self-mill for Sam, maybe Sarinth Steelseeker?). Another copy of Grist could find its way in as well, fetchable removal is quite good. With Company costing four the deck might want to run another couple of lands, too (same with Cookie being mana-hungry).

Another option is Invasion of Ikoria  Flip, which is guaranteed to find a combo piece (swapping in Viscera Seer as the sac outlet), is sometimes cheaper than Company, allows throwing in a silver bullet like Vampire Hexmage and a Dryad Arbor for ramp if you need it, and doesn't restrict deckbuilding otherwise like Company does so I could keep my other non-creatures around. A single Scurry Oak could find its way in for the combo with Rosie, but I don't like it as much. Not sure I want to play a tutor at all, though, since it's a casual deck. Plus it's monetarily costly compared to the rest of the non-lands in the deck. It does have the ability to get things from the graveyard, which is nice if I'm playing some self-mill to feed Sam already. Which I don't need to do (especially since I'd be swapping out Altar for Seer), but I want to because I like value. If Sam could get it out of the grave it'd be bonkers, but I think I'm pretty thankful he can't.

Hopefully Wilds gives me even more ways to play with my food!

Is there a reason you went with Assassin's Trophy over Abrupt Decay? Also I'm not really sure how competitive battles are but have considered adding either Invasion of Ikoria  Flip or Invasion of Ixalan  Flip? The deck looks solid and I'm going to add it to my saves.

One more thing!!

As far as cuts go, anything EXCEPT FOR the following should be cut in favor of a more streamlined strategy with some of the pieces that have been mentioned imo:

Blightbelly Rat Bloated Contaminator Cankerbloom Fynn, the Fangbearer Phyrexian Hydra Scheming Aspirant Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon Thalia and The Gitrog Monster Invasion of Ikoria  Flip Chromatic Lantern Grafted Exoskeleton Snake Cult Initiation Carnivorous Canopy Drown in Ichor Infectious Bite Putrefy Tainted Strike Command Tower Inkmoth Nexus Karn's Bastion

All of these are great picks that can easily slot into the deck's rework.

I just realized I put the wrong invasion in my response. I'm looking to slot in Invasion of Ikoria  Flip not ixalan.

bingo. this is exactly what I was talking about, just a couple of things:

ugghh the problem is thinking what to drop as the list seems solid as is.

Taurean Mauler: though I see why it would be good

Shadowspear: good, but you it is better in more classic control decks

Force of Vigor: you probably have enough removal for this

Chaos Warp: Probably would be fine without

maybeboard cards


Orim's Chant

Red Elemental Blast


Guardian of Faith

Clever Concealment

Teferi's Protection

^^^ Most of the above suggestions are to help improve the control matchups^^^

If I have Zilortha, Apex of Ikoria  Flip in play in play and blink it, does it come back as Invasion of Ikoria  Flip or Zilortha, Apex of Ikoria  Flip? Or can it possibly come back as my choice of the two?

Nice build! I have something similar myself except the hydrae are very much a sub-theme.

Nice inclusion of Invasion of Ikoria  Flip. I considered it, but decided against in the end.

I tried to put a few target spells in to work with Gargos, Vicious Watcher and not just use it for that 4 mana discount although your deck has a lot more hydra creatures.

Hey, thanks for the comment hobosss!

At the moment, I’m not looking at any changes from March. I was briefly looking at Invasion of Ikoria  Flip or maybe Etali, Primal Conqueror  Flip, but as of yet, don’t really have many cards I’d want to cut for them. For others, it’s probably a fine substitution for a Wheel of Fortune or Time of Need (especially for those not running Embercleave + Godo, Bandit Warlord ).

Thanks again for your comment!
