Kholek on Tatyova, Help Wanted

2 days ago

I used to have a pretty competitive Tatyova. when building her you really want to focus on her ability, she is a Landfall goddess.

LANDS: 38 More Lands are needed, Terramorphic Expanse is another Evolving Wilds and triggers Tatyova twice. and what i believe is a great land card and if not a staple for this deck Alchemist's Refuge . this card with Seedborn Muse will give you practically another turn on someone else's turn.

CREATURES:
Since you going to be bring in lands allot, your going to want other creatures that play off the "Landfall" trigger.

Rampaging Baloths creating a 4/4 beast with every land can make you quite scary. Roil Elemental Stealing your opponents creatures when a land enters will give you huge advantage. Psychosis Crawler your going to be drawing lots of cards, might as well deal some damage with it. Hedron Crab and then we have a bit of mill... actually this is scary. you can play this card fast and let the hurt begin.

INSTANTS: Krosan Grip A K-grip is always a good card to have in a deck. Crop Rotation It brings in a land. and you can find Reliquary Tower . another land card that is a must have in a deck that will have you drawing so many cards. Deprive Returning cards to your hand is a great way to play lands again. this is a cheap spell with an EXPLOSIVE result.

SORCERIES: you have no land fetch cards in this deck. Kodama's Reach and Cultivate are a must have to really kick things off. Explosive Vegetation , Rampant Growth .

ENCHANTMENT: a great card for "landfall" is Burgeoning if you can get this out early is crazy ramp. if you can get it out mid to even late game is SUPER good with all the "Landfall" triggers you might have out on the table. Courser of Kruphix here is a way to play lands from the top of your library in case you don't have any in your hand. plus some extra life gain. Exploration lets you play more land per your turn. Zendikar's Roil and some more tokens per land entering the battlefield.

ARTIFACTS: once this deck starts to really take off Aetherflux Reservoir will end games fast. Alhammarret's Archive even more life and even more card draw. Storm Cauldron is a nasty card. it will stop other plays in their tracks, while giving you all the advantage.

COMBOS: There are a few combos that are optional.

Amulet of Vigor , Perilous Forays and any token generator Rampaging Baloths , Zendikar's Roil ... you can even use your opponents creatures as sac fodder if you have Roil Elemental . HOW THIS WORKS: with Perilous Forays pay sac a creature, find a land and put it on the battlefield. triggering Zendikar's Roil creating another creature. with Amulet of Vigor that land comes in untapped, allowing you to repeat this until you have all your basic land and all the triggers you could possibly want.

this is an infinite combo Retreat to Coralhelm , Walking Atlas and Simic Growth Chamber this allows you to repeatedly bounce Simic Growth Chamber to your hand and on the battlefield as many times as you want.

Biovisionary , Infinite Reflection and a token generator or Rite of Replication .

So here is my suggestions. just ways to energize with Tatyova. Hope this helps.

Hey lonesentinel, You have put together a very nice deck. I would have some recommendations that you might like.

Asceticism is a realy good protection and works very well.

Staff of Domination a another combo-piece, for Prist of Titania or Elvish Archdruid, Marwyn… as infinitely mana, or/and infinitely darw to Psychosis Crawler

Argothian Elder , Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Elvish Guidance , Gaea's Cradle for a heavy mana

Natural Order , Chord of Calling , Summoner's Pact , Crop Rotation , Survival of the Fittest as tutor for combo creatures or lands

If your goal is to collect different combo pieces to reach your line, I would cut Great Oak Guardian and Grothama, All-Devouring out, because they do less for the goal or only once on ETB.

I am available for any questions,

best regards

Psychosis Crawler can be very nasty in this deck

Snivy__, Treasure Hunt does work for Conflagrate & Zombie Infestation . I'm using Treasure hunt to get cards in my hand, yes I'm not drawing them, but I still get cards in my hand which is what matters. Then I can discard thoso cards to use Conflagrate & Zombie Infestation very effectively. I'm still looking to replace Psychosis Crawler though, as making 1 big creature isn't really effective.

Psychosis Crawler is a pretty powerful effect in Anje.

I’m looking at building a chulane deck at some point so I’ve looked into it a bit.

Something I always do in my deck lists is create custom categories so that I know how many cards I have that do a certain thing. For example:

-Lands

-Ramp

-Draw

-Utility

-Win conditions

That’s going to help you figure what can and shouldn’t be cut, if you’ve got too many things that ramp then you could cut some back or if there’s not enough you can add some in.

It explains how to do so in the formatting tips page

A few good ways I’ve found to win when play testing chulane are.

- Psychosis Crawler

- Bontu's Monument

- Laboratory Maniac

Paired with the combo listed above.

Having a quick scan through your list I’m not sure why you’re running the following.

I hope this comment has been useful

+1 for getting all aboard the chu chulane

Psychosis Crawler worth running or is it a trap?

TheMazter13 on Poison

Play more Wheel of Fortune s. If you want people to draw cards, then have them draw cards. Even Timetwister effects that shuffle everything back in first. Also, maybe cut some horrible, awful, terrible, no-good infect cards for things that are more... playable. You do not need other creatures with infect. The only creature you need with infect is Nekusar, and that is done with Phyresis I know. Cut infect creatures for repeatable windfalls like Jace's Archivist , cards that interact with discard, cards that have a "Whenever a player draws a card...", or cards like Psychosis Crawler that also do well with Phyresis.

Some cards you could try out could be Folio of Fancies , Opportunity , or even Midnight Clock can be played with. Sometimes you have to think about targeted card draw. If a player is at 7 poison, Opportunity targetting them kills them. Sometimes you have to say "Ancestral Recall targeting you" especially if it wins
