AkaAkuma on Reyhan&Ishai | Where Unstoppable Meets Immovable!

Hey Gammon420, thanks for the interest in my decklist! I promise you, the aristocratic theme is very fun to play.

I actually have used the cauldron for many years in this decklist, but ultimately the card got cut from the 98. In the right setup - having a sacrifice outlet and something of ETB/LTB value - this card gives allot of value! When players threaten to wipe, this card becomes their most difficult obstacle - unless their playing exile or bounce... - , but the 5 mana can also make it a dead card in hand. It's not a matter of the cost itself, but when it needs to compete against other 5 mana slots like Kalonian Hydra or a Tendershoot Dryad, or even to cheaper options like the Luminous Broodmoth and Journey to Eternity  Flip then the cauldron unfortunately is the sore loser.

It's a great suggestion however, and don't let my story discourage you on not using it. If interested, take a quick read in the "Acceleration (Our journey to turn three)" tab, as it shows how fast paced the already present pieces of the decklist can make the deck moving forward.

Have fun brewing your version!

Niko9 on Ramos's Dragon Horde

Ramos is a really awesome commander. Big giant clockwork dragon that can do any number of things in any number of ways, yep, so cool. I've never built Ramos, just thought about it a few times, but what do you think about having ways to power counters onto Ramos and pay off his mana ability? Things like:

Kalonian Hydra

Sword of Hours

Doubling Cube

Karn's Bastion

Solidarity of Heroes

Avabruck Caretaker  Flip

Hardened Scales

Luminarch Aspirant

and Slippery Bogbonder can be really good, giving Ramos permeant hexproof, moving all counters to him, adding a counter to Ramos, and also being a counter to removal. Snakeskin Veil can be similar but more limited.

There are a ton more, but I don't know, it's just something I'd been thinking about with Ramos. Looks like an awesome dragony list you have!

Sublime Archangel, Unnatural Growth, and Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion have good repeated use.

Some good one time instants are Berserk and Hatred. Exponential Growth for kicks and giggles. There’s also Thromok the Insatiable who could fit depending on the deck style.

The best equipment/aura boosters are Colossus Hammer, Eldrazi Conscription, and Colossification.

Pathbreaker Ibex and Craterhoof Behemoth can make a creature bigger, as well as lots of others. Throw God-Eternal Rhonas in with this group. And maybe Nylea's Colossus, too. Let’s also add Kalonian Hydra.

Kalonian Hydra and Mistcutter Hydra are two of my favorite you may consider. I always wanted to build Hydra tribal just because i thought it would be fun. Haha. I was going to use Morophon at the helm. Love this in Sultai though.

Neotrup on Tokens of parallel lives

You'd get two token Parallel Lives. Parallel Lives ability is a replacement effect, not a triggered ability, so it never triggers. Replacement effects on permanents entering the battlefield only apply if they only effect that permanent (such as Snowfield Sinkhole entering tapped or Kalonian Hydra entering with counters). Replacement effects that apply to a general subset of permanents that include the one it's printed on don't apply to itself entering (Orb of Dreams enters untapped). The token Parallel Lives will attempt to enter, see the original, and two will be created instead. They're created simultaneously, so neither are around to effect the other, nor can they effect themselves.

Nice! Glad you like the deck! Loyal Guardian is basically my budget Kalonian Hydra. If you can afford it I'd recommend that one.
