Ox of Agonas Discussion

Fling is a cool idea, tho from playtesting this deck Rielle is typically only up to probably about 7 or 8 power on average by the end of the game so it wouldn't be something that could do the job entirely. Also, Ox of Agonas tends to be a very important card for breaking the game in my favor so he gets dibs on the bulk of the graveyard- obviously you want to leave as many instants/sorceries in the yard as possible for Rielle and Magmatic Channeler , but generally speaking those cards and triggers from Ox are more important.

Nothing else off the top of my head, but you know I think I'm gonna build this just to have somewhere to play Ox of Agonas (I pulled 3 at prerelease and have been wanting to use it lol). Also, how has Sin Prodder played? It's a bit of a pet card of mine and I loved playing it in 20-life formats when SOI came out but it always seemed so bad in EDH. Does it actually do okay? Or is it essentially just "upkeep- mill 1 and maybe ping someone"?

Hey man nice deck, I'm also trying to build a Song deck so found this to get some inspiration. A few ideas you might want to try out:

  • Adventure cards such as Brazen Borrower and Bonecrusher Giant . I like the Foretell cards too but they can be slow against aggro, so these guys can help survive the early game while also avoiding the Song discard.

  • Ominous Seas is a good alternate win con, as you can easily churn out krakens once Song is rolling.

  • Ox of Agonas gives a similar type of payoff as Song to help with the deck's consistency, and if you get it with Song you can just discard it and use the Escape later.

Awesome! See I knew I must have overlooked something. Turns out I overlooked a lot haha. I love Cathartic Reunion , Ox of Agonas , and Harmonious Archon .

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't I have to go odds if I wanted one of those companions? Offspring's Revenge is odds. Though I guess either would work as regular creatures.

I originally had Skyclave Apparition in the deck, but decided I only wanted to play hits that I could still cast without stretching the mana-base too much, but now I think it's better than Demon's Disciple . I feel like I need Harmonious Archon , so I don't mind changing up the mana a little bit in order to fit these.

Thanks for the suggestions!

I have an offspring's revenge deck on my own in Arena but I am glad to help you out since I love brewing this card.

You can go in two ways - Go Odds or Evens. Why did I say that? because you can abuse these companions to build around offspring's revenge - Obosh, the Preypiercer or Gyruda, Doom of Depths without them being your companion.

Also, you will need to have enablers in this deck. while we agree self mill is good in this deck, I like to control which cards do I actually dump early game for my payoffs from offspring's revenge later on. So I recommend cards like Cathartic Reunion , Thrill of Possibility and Fissure Wizard .

For payoffs if I go odds - you can go for Oathsworn Knight , Skyclave Apparition , obosh, Ox of Agonas (very good card draw and cheap escape cost), Drana, the Last Bloodchief and Terror of Mount Velus

If I go evens (and i recommend this due to more options, combos and your 1/1 tokens become bigger) - Immersturm Predator , Rankle, Master of Pranks (very very good in this deck), Harmonious Archon , gyruda (sell mill but it picks up more payoffs), Moraug, Fury of Akoum (if you combine it with drana, you can have multiple chain combat triggers with offspring's revenges)

...or if you can combine both. Its up to you how you can improve this deck. Hope it helps.

Hardhitta7 I have thought about adding them but I don't want to tax my graveyard to much to the point I can't cast Ox of Agonas . Any ideas as to what you would swap out for 2x Dig Through Time

Awesome deck!!!

Seems like your commander is pretty crucial. Have you considered Deflecting Swat or Deadly Rollick ?

If the price isn't a concern, Vampiric Tutor would be a good upgrade to Scheming Symmetry (unless you play mostly team matches). Same goes for Demonic Tutor with Grim Tutor .

Ox of Agonas is a cool card but due to the fact that is doesn't trigger your commander's ability, or synergize with all your tribal buffs, I would consider dropping it (but that's just me).

Last thought, Dreadbore is another solid removal card. It's not an instant like Hero's Downfall , but it's cheaper.
