TheVectornaut on Aggro Infect/ Proposition 65

The card selections here are good, but you do have way too many lands. Infect lists sometimes run land counts in the low teens, and without more expensive threats like Wild Defiance, I definitely would run 20 at the most. If you do want to stick with a higher land count to avoid mana screw, Groundswell will almost always be better than Titanic Growth while still being more budget friendly than Might of Old Krosa. Although, it looks like even Might is fairly cheap after being reprinted. Other relatively cheap buffs I'd look at would be Rancor and Mutagenic Growth. The former is persistent and combos well with Ichorclaw Myr. The latter is basically half an Invigorate, but Invig is so good it's banned in pauper.

Hm.... I guess they're dropping the pattern of making Gods hard to kill? Guess it makes sense here, AFAIK in the myths Norse gods do things that are a bit more low-key compared; Thor is closer to Heracles than Zeus. Anyway, MDFC where both sides are nonland seems kinda awkward, especially for draft; gotta memorize the back if you don't want to tip off what you got. On the plus side, here's a reason run 4 of a legendary card; the God side is free to wield the Equipment side, Nicol Bludegon-style And yes, we finally got an Equipment commander.

Kaya sadly doesn't actually Ghostforms, just Rancors.

Spirits on Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH

Hey Foxfire_Celest, here is the probability so you know.

  • Assumes you haven't already drawn an equipment or aura in opening hand or turn 2 draw
  • Assumes the population of the deck is 91 (turn 1) or 90 (turn 2)

Equipment/Aura: Grafted Exoskeleton, Sword of Feast and Famine, Umezawa's Jitte, Sword of Fire and Ice, Hammer of Nazahn, Shadowspear, Lightning Greaves, Skullclamp, Rancor

You have a Turn 1 probability of hitting an Equipment/Aura 47.4% of the time (Opening would be Armored Skyhunter, Concordant Crossroads, Mana Crypt, Sol Ring, Plains, Lotus Petal)

You have a Turn 2 probability of hitting an Equipment/Aura 47.8% of the time, but if I include Enlightened Tutor, Steelshaper's Gift, and Sterling Grove (to tutor success), it increases to 58.7%.

It has a Turn 1 kill line, an 8-card god hand, adding a Berserk and a Mox Opal to the above, and a random Grafted Exoskeleton rate of 6.5%. I can't see a 7-card here. Berserk is required because it would only be Power 3 + Exo 2 + Eminence 3 = 8 infect without. An alternative would also be Rancor and a Mox Opal, which puts you in a nice T2 position to eliminate another opponent potentially, Berserk would kill the cat.

Happy testing!

There are some cards in here that don't provide some synergy or lack some speed. I commend you for your ambition but I would recommend looking for some cards that cost less mana on what you're trying to do like Rancor for example.

Cool! Would you consider Angelic Destiny? I like it because it's like a bulky, white Rancor, though it does have a higher mana cost than most of your cards in the deck now.

I think that ways to increase your creature's power and give it trample could help too. Disrupt Decorum fits in perfectly if you don't mind it's price. Otherwise, Titanic Growth, Rancor, Barge In, and Crash Through are solid options. It could also be worth looking into making Marisi your commander for more consistent access to goad, but I'm not sure what you'd be able to replace black with. I really love the deck though!

abby315 on Domain, is it good enough?

1 month ago

It's kind of like, "Why do this over mono-G stompy?" There just aren't a lot of Domain payoffs, and of those only Tribal Flames is impressive. That being said, I'm sure you could build a pretty successful shell with Burning-Tree Emissary, Rancor and other zoo cards, if you just like to play with Domain. Other cards to consider would be Savage Swipe and Elephant Guide, classic powerful stompy cards, and of course Lightning Bolt.

The clear format bullies are Tron and R/W/x Monarch decks, so I'm not sure you'll necessarily have a great matchup against them. It sucks that most of your big threats besides the Domain dude can't get through Palace Sentinels. Maybe the extra burn will help. The good thing about aggro is that you always have a chance of winning if your opponent stumbles.
