Creature — Beast


When Plaxmanta enters the battlefield, creatures you control gain shroud until end of turn. (They can't be the targets of spells or abilities.)

When Plaxmanta enters the battlefield, sacrifice it unless was spent to play it.

If you're still looking for ways to protect Animar, Plaxmanta and Siren Stormtamer are good options. Also, if you're okay with combos, the one non-creature card you run can be Weird Harvest . You put 2 into the X and kill and Ancestral Statue and Purphoros, God of the Forge . In other words, you win with just 5 mana and 3 counters on Animar.

Some thoughts: Frilled Mystic , Great Oak Guardian , Mizzium Meddler , Plaxmanta , Mystic Snake , and Selfless Squire all need to reenter the battlefield immediately for maximum effect. You have Deadeye Navigator and Temur Sabertooth only for that, with 0 tutors for either. I suggest either investing in more cloudshift effects, or taking most of the weaker of those out.

I also see Guardian Project as reasonable, but also strongly suggest Soul of the Harvest as in the utility creature deck, a high p/t blocker that also generates card advantage is very worthwhile as an investment.

With Ghostway and Eerie Interlude , Eternal Witness and friends are a very good investment. additionally, with so many low power dudes, Reveillark is amazing, and can help reduce tension for some of the issues with my first point, as reveillark triggers when it leaves, returning the desired dorkos immediately. Also consider Thragtusk , as swagboy is hilarious blink value, and can gain 10-20 life easy in a game, 3/3 blockers aside.

While cultivate and kodama's reach are great, in a blink deck, I strongly recommend Wood elves, even in a budget build it can grab the WG tango and cycling land.

Last point, run more card advantage. Mulldrifter can be evoked, the sac trigger responded to with roon activation for 5 mana draw 4 and keep fish alive. Cloudblazer might also be worthwhile though I never tested it myself.

Though, actually, turning Power Matters tribal into Riot Control tribal might not be that bad - snare opponent and beat to death. Possible additions:

Sweet! Nice to see another unique Tishana deck, one that isn't elf/merfolk tribal ;). I like the / tribal approach!

I would recommend Plaxmanta for protecting those expensive / creatures so they can make it to the next turn, while also giving you another creature to overrun with :).

Here's my Tishana - I've got some ideas for other versions I'd live to try building, listed in the description. Looking for people to team up with!

I'm working more with the card draw triggers in there, and untap/taps to power her forward (she loves the dorks!) One that I have that might work great in here is Myojin of Life's Web , to flood the deck with your expensive /s right before your next turn, especially with all the natural card draw. Then again, the Myojin is pretty expensive. Works out in my deck, maybe not here though?

Hi! I am playing with a similar deck but I use blue instead of black:

  • Hedron Crab (in turn three you have many cards in the cemetery)
  • Screeching Skaab (2/1 for 1U that also throws two cards)
  • Dream Twist (it doesn't matter if it is discarded, it has flashback and it is very cheap)
  • 1 or 2 copies of Skaab Ruinator. This card saved me many times against decks that clean the table, long games, against control decks and flying creatures.
  • On the sideboard I have a couple of Plaxmanta that work quite well.

It's a very fun deck, with the same mechanics and same main cards!

Osbert on Surrak, Flashing Goodstuff

So I've been motivated to build my own Surrak deck since seeing this post and found a few more cards that slot in very well.

Veilstone Amulet makes spot removal rather ineffective against us. Plaxmanta is similar but no where as universal.

Dire Fleet Daredevil and Snapcaster Mage for playing spells from graves. Just general value good stuff.

Equilibrium turns all our creatures into spot removal for 1 more mana. Can bounce strong ETB creatures for reuse and dodge opponents spot removal.

Panharmonicon will do some work as this is primarily an ETB deck.

The more mana the better. Nature's Will, Regal Behemoth, & Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger are strong options. Carpet of Flowers is also a mana powerhouse but doesn't always hit its mark.

Cream of the Crop and Lurking Predators work well if you skewed towards big sticks and away from utility creatures. On the flip side Wild Pair favours utility creature builds and can sometimes sneak out an army. Very entertaining to flash out a 1/1 and tutor out Draining Welk to counter a spell and make a nice beat stick.

I'd vote Plaxmanta instead of Mana Leak, since it can also trigger Evolve.

I'm looking at Shambleshark. Only a returning Strangleroot Geist or Endless One can evolve it. Maybe replace it with Jhessian Infiltrator?

Maybe find some space for Calcite Snapper at the top end? Random thought: if you overload a Mizzium Skin it can deal 1 extra damage.

I remember back in "the day", Shorecrasher Mimic on turn two followed by Favor of the Overbeing on turn three was a pretty solid opening. "Dies to Lightning Bolt" is a good reason it won't work these days.
