Lead the Stampede


Look at the top five cards of your library. You may reveal any number of creature cards from among them and put the revealed cards into your hand. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in any order.

love elves! has Llanowar Visionary felt good in play? i think its a really strong card but i feel like elves is so fast it might be a bit out of tune. also a huge fan of all of ur 1 drop mana dorks i think i need more of them in my elves list. btw Winding Way is another effect similar to Lead the Stampede as is You Meet in a Tavern but you may prefer Lead the Stampede.

I think it's important to have a good 3 drop to start increasing the offensive preassure early, or to support the big dinos in combat, and Giant Cindermaw seems the perfect one for the job. A cheap 4/3 trample. Not many other decent 3 drop dinosaurs around. Territorial Hammerskull might be interesting to pacify a dangerous blocker, although it doesn't have Trample and it's weaker

I think Ilysian Caryatid is good for giving up to 2 mana, but I understand the allure of Birds of Paradise

I need something to draw more cards but in these colors I find it hard to do so efficiently. I was thinking about replacing Lead the Stampede by something else, maybe Hunter's Insight (?)

Boros Charm is 3 useful effects in one instant. It can help with the damage, save multiple creatures from being destroyed or give an unblocked or chump blocked Carnage Tyrant or Ancient Imperiosaur Double Strike for a massive hit

Better for sure.

I’m not sold on Giant Cindermaw being useful, and I think you should use a 1-mana dork instead of Ilysian Caryatid.

I also don’t think Lead the Stampede is worth running as a 3-mana sorcery to get on average 2 cards seems very meh.

What’s your plan for Boros Charm? The indestructible could be nice but i’m not sure how often you’ll have mana to respond to stuff, and I don’t see the other 2 modes coming up much

TheMeadiator I like Browbeat and Risk Factor, used both in other decks. I've decided to mainboard 2x Lead the Stampede as it can draw me more cards than Browbeat.

Colossal Majesty is a bit too slow for me, and Dawn of Hope doesn't make much sense here since I dont use Lifelink

I agree that more craw draw is necessary, but it's hard to find good one in these colors for a tribal deck

it may just end up being a worse version of Lead the Stampede but You Meet in a Tavern being able to buff the whole board can help close out games

adding on to what mlequesne said, Winding Way is another similar option that would capitalize on your critical mass of creatures. while sometimes just a worse Lead the Stampede, having the option to buff your entire board makes You Meet in a Tavern an interesting option as well.

I like this idea, but I feel like it needs some draw power and big payoffs - a couple playtests and I was sitting on lands and myr without a big 'this is how I win the game'.

I think the biggest thing would be leaning into green for Winding Way. It would let you grab myrs for the myr gameplan or grab tronlands in the top cards of your library, as well as opening up Ancient Stirrings which finds every card in your deck.

Icon of Ancestry / Brass Herald offers this kind of effect at a higher cmc but colourless.

The difference between 'big mana' tron myr rather than more 'artifacts cost less' myr is that it changes combo options - Myr Retriever loops and Heartless Summoning isn't going to do well. You need some big artifacts that stick and turn your myr into big threats - the myr tribal artifacts only do sorta okay at this, but they're a little light on synergy with each other.

If you want big winning combos, its more likely to be Kuldotha Forgemaster type cards that grab a big artifact threat - most of which would be lore appropriate.

I've had fun with Trading Post in these lists, alongside Myr Sire/Genesis Chamber to create a 'value until your opponent runs out of cards' style, but it does need the myr to be able to trade efficiently.

Trying to stick something like Vanquisher's Banner then play your entire deck, or run things like Thoughtcast, Lead the Stampede or Thought Monitor (with the artifact taplands) are all neat options but would take a lot bigger changes. A slow list built around using myr as mana dorks, artifact lands and Storage Matrix has some potential too, but all these options are getting further away from what the list currently is.

Have fun, and good luck with the playtesting.

Hunger of the Howlpack, Crashing Drawbridge,Elephant Guide, Snake Umbra would be good in this deck. I would take out Oakenform and Hardened-Scale Armor for Snake Umbra and Elephant Guide. Muscle Burst won't really do anything for the deck. I'd cut that for maybe Whispersilk Cloak. Lead the Stampedeand You Meet in a Tavern would also be great for the deck.
