Necropanther Discussion

Couple suggestions from someone working on a similar deck:

Bone Splinters is great but swapping it for Spark Harvest lets you keep its ability while also allowing you to remove while you're flush with mana without sacrificing a creature.

Blood for Bones is good to kill a creature but Call of the Death-Dweller lets you bring back your creatures and turn Serrated Scorpion into a giant-killer with Deathtouch.

I would probably pull out Discordant Piper and sub in Bastion of Remembrance for the same sacrifice fodder plus it will leach life for every creature you lose. Another cool change to think about is Necropanther or Lurrus of the Dream-Den as a way to bring your creatures back over and over again. Nice work man, keep it up!

There are a high number of legends - ever thought of including something like Huntmaster Liger, Majestic Auricorn, Cubwarden, or Vulpikeet? Mutating one of them over a legendary allows it to remove its legend status while keeping its abilities. You could even throw in Necropanther since you can play it for the mutate cost without needing the black mana.

SilentPlague on Evolving Magic

BRG24, the mutated creature on top of the stack does indeed have all abilities of each creature below it. I think Pack Rat may be too slow for this deck since I don't have any other rats. If it were on top of the creature stack, then it would start as a 1/1. To get it higher I would be paying 3 mana very often, and that would be if I could keep all the rats out. Not saying it is a bad card, just not the right fit for this I think.

Vulpikeet was very close when I was considering all the creatures in the deck. I ultimately decided that I wanted Cubwarden for the extra creatures and life link. The extra creatures work great with Corpse Knight and Cruel Celebrant for entering and leaving the battlefield. Dirge Bat is also a solid flyer and easily mutated on for the destroy creature effect. Hopefully Necropanther will be enough to salvage the dead for those that don't make it. Only 2 creatures cannot be brought back by it in this deck.

Minousmancer on Winota of D in Z

I don't play with anything before Theros Beyond Death. That is why it seems like it's on a budget.

Mana-base Evolving Wilds and Winota, Joiner of Forces and Savai Triomes. Evolving Wilds can fetch youSavai Triomes.

Necropanthers: Mutate onto Garrison Cat, Luminous Broodmoths, or the other Necropanther.

Garrison Cat: A 1/1 that dies and becomes a 3/3+ when it dies. So if the kill it, it's actually a win for me. Two creatures for one is better than one creature for two.

Half the point of Winota, Joiner of Forces is to cheat expensive cmc humans into play that is why it worked so well with Agent of Treachery before it was banned.

Why would I worry about Shatter the Sky with my legendary creatures?

And if need be I can Weaponize the Monsters and bring them back with Luminous Broodmoth or Necropanther.

And if they have creature advantage I have spot Dire Tactics removal and Boardwipes Extinction Events. And if I have Garrison Cats on the Board I hit the ground running.

At first, I thought you were on a budget but then I saw the price of Luminous Broodmoth and now I'm confused. If you are on a budget, there's nothing wrong with that. But if you aren't then you shouldn't be playing Evolving Wilds over either Temple of Silence or Temple of Triumph (at the very least). And if you really aren't on a budget, Fabled Passage is basically a better Evolving Wilds.

Still on the topic of your mana base, are you having any issues casting Winota, Joiner of Forces? Because the way your mana base is currently, it would like you would. At the very minimum, I would recommend at least 1-2 basic Mountain to ensure you can cast her when you find her. That being said, the rest of my suggestions:

Garrison Cat is a cool card. As cool as it is, it doesn't do much. I would recommend you swap it for Alseid of Life's Bounty.

Reverent Hoplite is way too expensive (mana-wise) for 20 lands. I would either add more lands so you can cast it when you don't have access to Winota or pull 2 copies. Otherwise, that's a cool card to pull out with her effect.

Personally, I don't care much for Necropanther because it doesn't have many mutate targets so it's generally going to be a 3/3 for 3. Which isn't bad, but isn't good either. I would recommend replacing it with Raise the Alarm which is good for two reasons: firstly, it is an instant, meaning you can cast it after your opponent has cast Shatter the Sky, Deafening Clarion or some other wrath effect. Secondly, they aren't humans so they trigger Winota's effect.

Your list is interesting, and I would love to hear how it plays and see where you take it. May you never flood and have fun playing!

Suns_Champion on The Conquistadors of Hernán Cortés | Elenda EDH

Hey everyone! I'm considering the following Ikoria and C20 cards, would love to know everyone's thoughts:

First and most importantly: Mutate cards! See the new section in the primer about them and Elenda!

Next, some maybe great cards, or maybe just for fun:

Discuss!

Ziabo on Snapdax apex of infect

I would definitely add Triumph of the Hordes and some Pump spells for combat tricks

as for mutaty creatures Huntmaster Liger would be neat. Mysterious Egg would help pump Necropanther can help with recursion. Regal Leosaur for another pump. Vulpikeet is kinda heafty (as are a lot of these) but can help pump.

I believe if you mutate your creatures will maintain that infect keyword.

I hope this helps you at least a tad.

abby315 on Meren to Nethroi

7 months ago

The above comment about sums it up for me, unless you were planning to take it in a combo or other kind of direction! Here are some good Nethroi targets that have low power but make tokens or have good effects when they enter:

Biogenic Ooze Blade Splicer Master Splicer
Maul Splicer
Sensor Splicer
Noosegraf Mob
Chittering Witch
Creakwood Liege
Akroan Horse
Pentavus
Deep Forest Hermit
Deranged Hermit
Nut Collector
Duplicant
Geist-Honored Monk
Ghave, Guru of Spores
God-Eternal Oketra
Hornet Queen
Izoni, Thousand-Eyed
Tendershoot Dryad
Trostani Discordant Trostani's Summoner

Most of the above cards create creature tokens, so you'll probably want the usual: Doubling Season, Anointed Procession, Parallel Lives if you include a lot of them.

Here are some 0-power utility creatures to consider, because they're free to reanimate if they get killed:

Arboreal Grazer
Birds of Paradise
Devoted Druid
Incubation Druid
Faeburrow Elder
Custodi Soulbinders
Embodiment of Agonies
Fertilid
Golgari Grave-Troll (also a great include because Dredge can fill your GY)

And you'll also want at least a few additional Mutaters in case you have Nethroi out and want to trigger it again:

Cubwarden
Auspicious Starrix
Cavern Whisperer
Gemrazer
Dirge Bat
Mindleecher
Migratory Greathorn
Necropanther
Sawtusk Demolisher

...all seem like good includes.

Hope this gives you a good place to start and a list of interesting cards to consider. Many are very affordable. Now I kinda want to make a Nethroi deck.

Have fun!
