Lurking Predators


Whenever an opponent casts a spell, reveal the top card of your library. If it's a creature card, put it onto the battlefield. Otherwise, you may put that card on the bottom of your library.

Fblthp is a great addition for that. I think if you're going Simic, Momir Vig, Simic Visionary would be the perfect catch. This would enable Lurking Predators, as well. And there is a way to cheat Proteus Staff, as well.

Just flash in some mono-green creature in response to your opponent casting a spell while you have Lurking Predators.(Vedalken Orrery?)

Also, if you're willing to break your theme for one card, something like Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose, Dina, Soul Steeper, or Defiant Bloodlord could weaponize those little bits of life gain you have throughout. Sanguine Bond also works, but having it on a creature helps with stuff like Lurking Predators.

faustodemambo Since Descendants' Path only cost it can come out pretty early. compare to Lurking Predators it will only trigger once but I personally think his small cost make it better. Like always, anything could removed but a 3 mana enchantment hurt less than a 6 mana enchantment. If left uncheck it could bring a huge value early-mid game if you have the appropriate board state. On the other side, keep in mind you will need a dragon on the board and have the chance to reveal a dragon from your library which the odd could be a little low since you have only 27 dragons for a edh creature deck. It's a gamble to make but payoff can be worth it. If you would like to try it I suggest to cut Phyrexian Arena for it since cheat creatures > draw cards in my opinion.

@GrimlockVIII duly noted. I'll see what I could do. The only I fear about Lurking Predators is the CMC of the card. I had War's Toll at one point in time the reason I removed it is the potential of opponents abusing the mechanic and my own creatures being forced to fight especially when they're un-transformed and the opponents blocking them and destroying them in the process. I do think Tectonic Instability is one that definitely could find a place. Thank you for the feedback.

I always wanted to make Werewolves work myself, but any time I thought of including generic Gruul support, I always found myself questioning if the deck was worth it in the first place given how I could just use that generic Gruul stuff in something less janky lol.

I salute your noble attempt at giving the tribe some love, though.

As for suggestions to further dissuade your opponents from casting spells, perhaps you can include Lurking Predators or Heartwood Storyteller . They don't directly hurt your opponents after they cast spells, but they threaten them with giving you and everyone else advantage should they decide to commit to a play.

Tectonic Instability and War's Toll also disuades spell casting through land-related shenanigans.

Check out Lurking Predators . That card would be pretty busted in this deck.
