Primeval Protector Discussion

Pikobyte on Oops, I did it again!

Nice list to start with. You should consider cards that reduce their cost like Ghalta, Primal Hunger , Dig Through Time , Treasure Cruise or Primeval Protector . Playing a Ghalta for just 2 and still getting a 12 mana cascade trigger is just nuts. The Great Henge is like super good for that reason, it also draws you cards and ramps. Omniscience does really well in Imoti and Aetherflux Reservoir can easily get you 150+ life a turn because of its special interaction with cascade. Also some additional card draw like Thunderous Snapper has proven to be awesome. My Imoti can easily draw and play like 50-70 cards a turn and put 25 lands into play in one turn, with a few changes yours could really get to the next level :-)

I would take out 1 of each basic lands plus two other cards and replace with a Dimir Signet, Golgari Signet, Simic Signet and a Sol Ring. Maybe one more mana rock or Gyre Sage. That should put your mana at 40% of your deck.

Clones are fun with ninjas. Nice cheap Clone or anything with that ability can copy the most powerful creature on the board and then ninjitsu it back to recast once you see a better creature hit the board.

Primeval Protector comes out cheap.

I use Primeval Protector because he throws out counters I can proliferate and because he usually comes out for only 3 or 4 mana. I thought you would be looking for counters because of the nostalgic enchantment.

3> Ahhh I've been wanting to play with Obosh, the Preypiercer and Angrath's Marauders - glad you found a spot for them. While you're at it, you could also consider other "damage doublers" such as Wound Reflection and Fiendish Duo. I've thought about a Vial-Smasher deck with a White partner just to add Gisela, Blade of Goldnight.

3> I see you enjoy big monsters and X-spells here. Oh to be young again... but seriously, this seems like a good deck to play them in as you would be rewarded. Instants are your friend, as you can Smash Vials on everyone's turn! No Comet Storm?

3> I would be worried about Vial-Smasher getting nuked from orbit as soon as your turn passes and it's no longer indestructible. You'll find Heroic Intervention and Slippery Bogbonder will help with targeted Exile removal. You already have Destroy and Sacrifice covered I see.

3> I see some cost-reduced and commander-free spells in there, but you have a limited suite. While doing research for my thoughts on Vial-Smasher, I found the following might be helpful - list is just copy/paste, so it will include some White and/or Blue cards:

Thanks for the suggestions, carpecanum!

I'll definitely consider Illusionist's Bracers and Selvala's Stampede. Both look super cool!

I mention Mayael's Aria only because of nostalgia, I'm not particularly interested in trying to use it as a win-con. I know of cards like Mossbridge Troll that could work to win that way, but the first two modes (+1/+1 counters and gaining life) don't seem that impactful.

Shield of the Oversoul could be interesting, but I'd prefer effects like that on creatures with power 5 or greater. For example, I'm considering Spearbreaker Behemoth.

The creatures you mention are big, but I want my creatures to do more than just that. Especially without trample or evasion already tacked on, Primeval Protector and Gigantosaurus are not that exciting. I could see myself using Nessian Boar, though, since it can clear the way for other attackers.

Thanks for your thoughts :)

carpecanum on Hamza Counters Budget

Ridgescale Tusker , Primeval Protector , Fangren Firstborn , Jubilant Mascot

Creatures with Fabricate would give you the option of a counter or an extra creature to put a counter on

I see a lot of cross-over between this deck and my non-budget There Are No Green Angels deck. I hadn't thought of putting in an Iridescent Hornbeetle . My favorite token creator is Pollenbright Wings . The two together could spawn a horde.
