With Deathtouch decks, the "creature fight" mechanic becomes a target destroy; pretty decent synergy there with stuff like Prey Upon and Pounce.

Might be something for ya to try. Either way +1

,, discard a card: Target creature you control fights target creature you don't control. Use this ability any time you could vcast a sorcery.

You can essentially cast one Prey Upon per turn. This is a very powerful card, but you definitely a creature to abuse it. It's great with Neyith of the Dire Hunt.

Create a cantrip.

Krakens, Leviathans, etc. are blue jank. I run Tromokratis and Inkwell Leviathan in my deck. Creature-based control can also be jank. Oh! Hear me out!

Fight-themed control deck. Uses Prey Upon effects to eat your opponent's creatures.

I was looking at building a Titan Ape Deck. this is looking pretty good, but noticed you were missing Primal Might. It could easily replace Prey Upon, Does the same thing for 1 mana, but can be pumped if later in game. Cheers.

(its new, 2021 core set i believe)

Hey there!

Might I suggest some "fight" cards such as Prey Upon. Great flavor and great way to remove any problematic creatures in your way, then smash face.

Thanks so much for the feedback! I really like the idea of playing Portcullis Vine because getting a turn 1 defender would be nice. The 8 tappable defenders is a good amount from testing so I think I might replace Gatecreeper Vine with Portcullis Vine and see how that goes.

From testing it out my friend group is pretty evenly matched, which keeps it fun! (though I am an early game target)

I did run the 2 Gargos, Vicious Watcher and it was a really strong addition. I am considering 1 or 2 more.

I swapped out 1 Prey Upon for a Tower Defense to hold up against a MAJOR flying weakeness. Would you recommend another card over that? I may sideboard a Whiptongue Hydra or two. I also really like the idea of Squall Line since it gives even more reason to play Unbound Flourishing. (So expensive!!)

The real difficulty moving on is determining which hydras to focus on. I think Mistcutter Hydra might replace Vastwood Hydra and that Hooded Hydra would be replaced by Voracious Hydra.

Lastly, Feed the Clan is very tempting. Maybe run 1?

I'd love more suggestions based on these ideas/edits!

Ooh, I really like that Nahiri equipment. Maybe it's just me, but I'd change that activated ability to say "spells and abilities" considering cards like Ayula, Queen Among Bears exist. Also, I'm not sure if it was intentional, but that also prevents you from targeting your own creatures with things like Prey Upon.
