Postmortem Lunge Discussion

Canopy Cover and Ranger's Guile are both pretty cheap additional protection. also, Postmortem Lunge is a great card to bring back a glistner elf that got killed early which can set you up for some surprise attacks for the win. I believe it is legal in modern, though not sure

My best advice is to focus this deck more and cut some of your 1-of copies to add more consistency to your deck...You seem to be at 59 cards here...and the deck description doesn't really match the decklist...and the deck is kinda all over the place making it tough to give you constructive criticism.

If you want a persist/undying theme maybe consider Immortal Servitude and Reanimate a couple Vexing Devils?... Postmortem Lunge to compliment your flayer hatebound?

TheAnnihilator on H: Devoted Druid Combo; W: ...

Hey all! I've recently decided to let go of my Druid combo stuff, since I prefer a more Pod-like approach as opposed to all-in combo, so I have the following available:

Playsets of:
Devoted Druid (Ultimate Masters)
Vizier of Remedies
Giver of Runes
Finale of Devastation
3 Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip
Eladamri's Call
Knight of Autumn
Birds of Paradise (2 M12, M11, Battlebond)

1 Silent Clearing
2 Walking Ballista
1 Ranger-Captain of Eos
3 Postmortem Lunge
1 Chord of Calling (M15, Russian)
1 Collector Ouphe
3 Veil of Summer
1 Thalia, Guardian of Thraben (Dark Ascension)
4 Restoration Angel (Avacyn Restored)
3 Wall of Omens
1 Spellskite

So yeah, I'm keeping the lands, Hierarchs, Eldritch Evolutions, and Pod stuff (you can't pry Voice of Resurgence or Kitchen Finks from my cold dead hands), but most everything else I have is fair game. If there's anything else I may not have listed, feel free to ask about it. I probably have it. :)

I'm looking for:
Sword of Feast and Famine
4 Ice-Fang Coatl
1 Spell Queller
2 Monastery Mentor (I have 1 Korean if anyone wants to swap their English one)
1x Cavern of Souls (preferable Innistrad, either printing is fine tho)
2x Selesnya Sanctuary
1x Hornet Queen
I will also binder dive, but my binder seems to show only the foil/promos?

Ive definitely considered Postmortem Lunge , but quicken isnt needed because breakfast + oracle in a hulk pile wins at instant speed. I considered lunge but my playgroup tends to go the “counter any threat” route and not the “destroy creature” route. I used Quicken in breakfast but i feel that Oracle wins at instant speed so it isnt really needed.

I prefer Postmortem Lunge over Claim , the haste it grants can let you reanimate a devoted druid and go off immediately, and you can still use it to bring back a vizier or a piece of your secondary combo that isn't specifically two mana.

  • Seems like an more consistent strategy, albeit having more combo pieces. Seems like it works just as effectively on turn 4.
  • I'm trying to stay more with the Ball Lightning flavor as opposed to any tribal mechanics. Early damage feels more effective and mentally taxing for my opponent, even if I don't win immediately. I also get to abuse Postmortem Lunge more.
  • Thanks for the suggestions, though.
