Nesting Dragon

Creature — Dragon

Flying

Landfall — Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, create a 0/2 red Dragon Egg creature token with defender and "When this creature dies, create a 2/2 red Dragon creature token with flying and ': This creature gets +1/+0 until end of turn.'"

I noticed that you are playing some of the fetches, Nesting Dragon could be worth looking at as its always fun to be rewarded for playing lands. This card also gives you pseudo board wipe protection as when the eggs get destroyed they still hatch. If you are interested I’d cut Immersturm Predator for it

If you add in Ashnod's Altar, Altar of Dementia or Phyrexian Altar, it'll give you free sac outlets that are both reliable and useful.

Parallel Lives, Anointed Procession and Primal Vigor also expand the number of egg tokens your Commander can create, helping out greatly. There's also Determined Iteration which is a very odd thing for red - as most red permanents / spells will cause the token to be exiled. In this case, it sacrifices it for you!

I wasn't sure if I saw Nesting Dragon, who will create Egg tokens. So I am suggesting that as well <3

Hope I helped! :D

AstroAA on Maya Angels

So first things first - I see you swapped the commander to Atla Palani, Nest Tender, and I do think that she is stronger for cheating things into play as her plus her ability costs the same as a single Mayael the Anima activation, her ability triggers whenever an egg dies, and besides her you only have one egg producer in the deck - Nesting Dragon - and you aren't running any token doublers, I'd advise running something like Rings of Brighthearth or Illusionist's Bracers to copy her ability, allowing you to potentially cheat in multiple things a turn. However, her ability only triggers when something dies. I see you have Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar in the maybeboard, and they're definitely probably your best options to accomplish this as that mana can also be used to cast angels in your hand.

Also, your CMC is 4.03, which is ridiculously high. You also aren't running any mana ramp outside of artifacts, which while your commanders ability is based around cheating things into play - if you don't have access to your commander or sac outlets than you're screwed. Things like Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Migration Path, or cards like Birds of Paradise, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Fyndhorn Elves, or even cost-reducer cards like Starnheim Aspirant, Pearl Medallion all can make a big impact. Or, even just swapping some of the higher CMC angels out for lower-costed ones, like Angel of Vitality, Angel of Jubilation, Resplendent Angel and Righteous Valkyrie can go a long way towards a smoother game.

TypicalTimmy on Luma and the Coil Inferno

Grubbernaut, honestly I like your idea of making Luma less word-soupy, but I am going off of precedent where tokens with text are created with the source also having that text. For example, look at Reef Worm, Nesting Dragon and Vraska the Unseen.

If I could get away with merely saying "Create a red X/X Snake Elemental legendary creature token named Coil Inferno." and leave it at that, I would. Then, with the extra room, I'd also say:

  • Elemental creatures you control have haste.

Then Coil Inferno is much more powerful, and Luma holds tribal synergy.

Quickspell on Non-Creature Naya Card Draw?

1 year ago

Gleeock, here is my creature list. That's all there is. Each either shuffle back into the library from the graveyard and synergize with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Through the Breach , or they are indestructible and synerz with Shifting Shadow


Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker

Nesting Dragon

Not as good as expected, but more eggs and dragons are not bad, especially when you can sac them due to Maskwood Nexus .

Xenagos, God of Revels

  • Obviously good with any creature
  • Synergizes as a creature with Shifting Shadow , otherwise hard to remove

Avacyn, Angel of Hope

Kozilek, Butcher of Truth

  • Unfortunately, his casting ability is basically useless in this deck
  • Despite being crazy by itself, Annihilator 4 is great with It That Betrays
  • Shuffles graveyard back in, so I'll get back the non-shuffle creatures, most of all Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger

Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger
Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre

Obvious reasons.

Worldspine Wurm

I love this card.

  • Great with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Through the Breach . That's 30 power with trample for when Sneak Attack and Worldspine Wurm are out
  • Shuffles back in
  • Blightsteel Colossus

    Obviously the best and strongest creature in this deck. Loves Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and I am running Anointed Procession .

    It That Betrays

    It has happened that "It" and its over rings Kozilek and Ulamog have come into play at the same time with Selvala's Stampede . That's 33 power (easily chump blocked though) and 10 permanents sacrificed that I then returned to the battlefield under my control. Primal Rage helps.
