Pathbreaker Ibex Discussion

5OhmResistor on Ford F150 [Gruul, Xenagos]

Thank you for taking the time for making that list. I greatly appreciate it. I will revisit the drawing boards and consider each of these recommendations. There is a lot of cards and a bunch of them are really good. I also have never seen a few of them. Pathbreaker Ibex and Hydra Omnivore seem like crazy good cards. I will try to see if I can incorporate some of these cards into my deck without inadvertently messing up synergies and combinations. Thanks again!

Some cards to consider:

Inferno Titan

Heroes' Bane

Pathbreaker Ibex

Hydra Broodmaster

Hydra Omnivore

Nylea, God of the Hunt

Primal Rage

Skarrg, the Rage Pits

Bear Umbra

Bow of Nylea

Gruul Signet

Blasphemous Act

Those cards range from what I consider to be auto-includes to somewhat pet cards in no particular order and are pulled from an older deck list that I haven't updated in some time.I would be happy to discuss what makes them strong or what cuts to make to fit them in of you have any questions.

So the Witherbloom precon was so-so, IMO:

Gyome, Master Chef: I never voiced it but I predicted that the chef would be Witherbloom when I read Cram Session 's flavor text, woo. (Although I only just got the pun on that card, ironically.) Anyway, EDH tries to get caught up with the ELD Food theme, but the support is still kinda lackluster; mostly the card advantage from Savvy Hunter and Trail of Crumbs . (Can the fact that Foods are artifacts be abused in golgari?) But hey, an extra excuse for Cauldron Familiar loops in our format for the purpose of triggering people's PTSD.

Tivash, Gloom Summoner: Meh. I'm all for more Demonic presence but this seems pretty boring. Kinda like a token-producing Aetherflux Reservoir . (Also, he kinda looks like Urza, or the Raven Man.)

Yedora, Grave Gardener: Well, this is kind of an odd one. Seems more at home in the 99 than at the helm? Turns Kadena into an extra copy of Grim Haruspex . Not sure if there's a good way of abusing it. Turn random manifested cards into lands? Resurrect people with Worldgorger Dragon ?

Blossoming Bogbeast: Obvious Pathbreaker Ibex comparison; MV 1 cheaper

Marshland Bloodcaster: Fancy, but watch that MV. Ironically perhaps, itself benefits greatly from being cheated out.

Revival Experiment: One of the few sources of noncreature reanimation in these colors

Ezzaroot Channeler: Pretty much green Marshland Bloodcaster.

DemonDragonJ: Maybe the wanted to avoid having the infinitive combo with Dina, Soul Steeper from its sister set? WotC does seems to dislike EB tho, seeing as SB already got not one but two creature equivalents in Defiant Bloodlord and Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose while EB got none.

P3t310000 means everything to hear that! Just know that you might need to buy a calculator if you add Moraug, Fury of Akoum + Pathbreaker Ibex ;)

Pathbreaker Ibex kicks serious trash. It's fantastic in my Xenagos deck.

Hey there,

Nice to see another Multani list! I see we run quite similar builds. However, I also noticed you omitted some cards I really value in my deck. Here are some for your consideration:

Hope there are some cards there that fit your vision for the deck.

GL & HF!

First off, I always love to hear people discuss synergies and such about the decks they cherish, please go into as much detail as you'd like on my wall!

Now. Onto the combo explanation.

The Zacama combo is definitely not one I get every game, but it's pretty explosive and hard to stop once it's rolling. My opponent kind of has to get rid of Emeria Shepherd to stop the train--and given how unthreatening it is without support, even people who know what it can do in my deck usually don't want to waste a Swords or Path on it.

If I get just Nyxbloom Ancient and Nylea, Keen-Eyed out I can usually abuse the fuck out of her ability enough to draw into the other pieces, and given those are both enchantments I can get em with any of the tutors in the deck.

Sometimes I get the combo, spin the wheel a million times, generate a bucketload of mana... and whiff on getting another piece I need to win and have to settle for gaining some life and killing some shit with Zacama.

And sometimes I don't get the combo at all. As you guessed, a lot of the time I don't. It's not that I never win those games, or even usually don't--but they're a little less reliable. I do have the backup plans of

A. using Kodama of the East Tree and one of my guys that draws cards when things enter to (as I put it so elegantly in my primer, "spam permanents")

B. hit a billion landfall triggers with Moraug and Pathbreaker Ibex in play. Those happen just as frequently as the Zacombo... but they're a little more fragile and less fun to talk about. I should totally update my "How we win" section to include more about the other wincons, it totally does seem like I mainly use the Zacama loop.

I win about 58% of the time with this deck (my playgroup is very balanced)--unless I get the Zacemeria synergy, in which case the number rises to about 70%. TBH, I usually don't ever end up playing out the entire turn when I get it, it would take about 15 minutes on average if I did, but given the efficacy of the (I'm running out of synonyms for "combo" here) wincon I wouldn't say that I'm missing out on a whole lot of games where I would lose if I played it out.

Thanks for reading my primer and asking such a great question! I do love this deck with a passion, you can tell by my million-page long answer ;)
