Prime Speaker Zegana

Legendary Creature — Merfolk Wizard

Prime Speaker Zegana enters the battlefield with X +1/+1 counters on it, where X is the greatest power among other creatures you control.

When Prime Speaker Zegana enters the battlefield, draw cards equal to its power.

So you have an impressive pile of counter generating cards, but once you have Perrie and a dozen different counters in play, how do you turn that into three dead opponents?

Wild Beastmaster, Cultivator of Blades, Pathbreaker Ibex, Overwhelming Stampede, Champion of Lambholt

Card draw can also help close out a game.

Return of the Wildspeaker, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Prime Speaker Zegana, Rishkar's Expertise

These should help you turn your theme (different counters) into a strategy

Lotta comments to catch up on here!

  • Copy Artifact - I like the idea of it, but nah. Hard nah. At the time of typing this, I have 12 targets and only 5 of which aren't just 2 drop rocks. Certainly a cool idea and I love the thought of doubling up on a Panharmonicon or The Great Henge, it's just too conditional/too rare of a scenario.
  • Cultivate + Kodama's Reach - I was doing my best to stick to 2 cost ramp cards, but I do enjoy the land fixing + teensy bit of deck thinning these cards provide. Your idea of swapping signets out for these 2 ramp classics has me thinking.
  • Cursed Mirror - I am running this! It's hiding in my ramp category along with Urza's Incubator as my only 3 drop cards there.
  • Swan Song - Long story short, I didn't have a Swan Song to hand. An Offer You Can't Refuse has been an ok counterspell, but I think I might cut it for Nature's Claim.
  • Dragonspeaker Shaman - I ran the dragon cost reduction dorks in my Atarka deck and while they're decent, they got pruned out over time as I found that ramp spells + rocks always served me better.
  • Prime Speaker Zegana & Recurring Insight - great burst draw, albeit conditional. Persopnal preference, I'd rather have the repeateable draw effect with Kindred Discovery. Yes it's also conditional, but I've used it to great drawing effect in other decks and as you point out, the trick is to cast when you've got some dragons ready to swing.
  • 'You don't have a lot of ways to deal with enchantments' - You're not wrong and as I mentioned above, I think I'll swap in Nature's Claim for that reason.
  • Sea Gate Restoration  Flip & Valakut Awakening  Flip - Super cool cards that I might try to squeeze in here. Perhaps a Bala Ged Recovery  Flip for good measure, swapping out a basic of each for these 3. Good idea!
  • Blasphemous Act - Yep. I want to include this. Having played the deck a few times now, sometimes you just need a wipe and I've only got Cyclonic Rift & Ugin, the Spirit Dragon for nuke options. BA is also a potential win condition with Wrathful Red Dragon on the table too.
  • Korlessa, Scale Singer & Scaled Nurturer - Nice tech and it's cool to have some little dragon dorks like this, but I also don't think they're strong enough to warrant the slots.

  • Lots of good ideas and food for thought here, thanks all.

    I've been running Intet, the Dreamer as a dragon tribal deck for about a year now and I am in the process of converting it over to Miirym. Here are a couple of my thoughts.

    1. get as much of you ramp from lands as possible, and run artifact sweepers. Green's strength is in playing extra lands and being able to disrupt your opponents ramp is great. Kodama's Reach and Cultivate are fine in a green list where your commander costs 6 and hitting land drops is really important. Cut some of the signets.

    2. Kind of counter to the point above, why aren't you running Cursed Mirror? It's an infinite combo with Astral Dragon.

    3. Why An Offer you Can't Refuse over Swan Song?

    4. Dragonspeaker Shaman is a second copy of Urza's Incubator.

    5. I prefer both Recurring Insight and Prime Speaker Zegana over Kindred Discovery. 5 mana is a lot for an enchantment that doesn't do anything the turn you play it unless you already have a dragon on the board.

    6. You don't have a lot of ways to deal with enchantments. Consider adding a bounce land or two if remove like Imprisoned in the Moon or Song of the Dryads is something you run into regularly.

    7. Valakut Awakening  Flip and Sea Gate Restoration  Flip are worth the slots. especially if you add a bounce land or two to "rebuy" the land and cast the spell for gas.

    Aspect02 on If i have Kodama of …

    5 months ago

    I was playing as normal and i had Kodama of the East Tree and Sakashima of a Thousand Faces as a copy of Kodama and i played Prime Speaker Zegana and i drew my cards and continues the kodama trigger and they told me that Kodama trigger would resolve first and i thought that they would trigger at the same time allowing me to choose the order and if this is true the when do i draw the cards?

    I think you should cut: Brutalizer Exarch, Conduit of Ruin, Frost Titan, Giant Adephage, Myr Battlesphere, Oblivion Sower, Pelakka Wurm, Phyrexian Ingester, Rashmi, Eternities Crafter, Rattleclaw Mystic, Sagu Mauler, Simic Sky Swallower, Sphinx Ambassador, Stalking Vengeance, Tornado Elemental, Plasm Capture, Pandemonium, Sunken Hope, Tezzeret the Seeker, Chromatic Lantern, Darksteel Ingot, Disaster Radius, Explosive Vegetation, Heat Shimmer, Rude Awakening, and Spelltwine. As for lands, I do think you should replace: Izzet Boilerworks, Spawning Bed, and Temple of the False God.

    I think you should add: Temur Sabertooth, Genesis Ultimatum, Etali, Primal Storm, Skyshroud Claim, Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Chaos Warp, Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient, Terror of the Peaks, Kodama of the East Tree, Reclamation Sage, Kogla, the Titan Ape, Consecrated Sphinx, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Wood Elves, Ilharg, the Raze-Boar, Diluvian Primordial, Prime Speaker Zegana, Release to the Wind, Return of the Wildspeaker, Nature's Lore, Three Visits, Garruk's Uprising, Guardian Project, Unnatural Growth, and Arcane Signet.

    I do think one option that you have is replacing all signets with mana dorks like Birds of Paradise, Llanowar Elves, and Elvish Mystic

    If you are able to find more slots, I think you should consider: Hullbreaker Horror, Thryx, the Sudden Storm (dependent on count of spells with 5 cmc or more), Soothsaying, Mulldrifter, Beast Whisperer (dependent on final count of creatures), Rishkar's Expertise, Turntimber Symbiosis  Flip, See the Unwritten, Balefire Dragon, Scourge of the Throne, Bane of Progress (I feel like you do not have a ton of high value artifacts or enchantments that would cause this to cripple you), Momir Vig, Simic Visionary, and Genesis Storm.

    -- LimbicCircus Keruga, the Macrosage is definitely a strong inclusion, putting that on the list of prospects right away! Unfortunately, Prime Speaker Zegana is a wizard, which is a non-bo with Volo himself. Strong card, but no copy effect

    Have you considered effects such as Prime Speaker Zegana and Keruga, the Macrosage? Even if they are legendary, the ETB effects of the copy can be well worth the loss of the token aspect.
