Selvala's Stampede

Selvala's Stampede


Council's dilemma - Starting with you, each player votes for wild or free. Reveal cards from the top of your library until you reveal a creature card for each wild vote. Put those creature cards onto the battlefield, then shuffle the rest into your library. You may put a permanent card from your hand onto the battlefield for each free vote.

Quickspell on ATLA OMELETTE

Flowstone Surge and Defense of the Heart are great and Selvala's Stampede will always give you at least one create for 6 mana: Experienced players, who know your deck, will usually choose "Free" in the hope that you don't have a creature in your hand. So you usually choose "Wild" to get one out of your library.

Selvala's Stampede would be truly terrifying here. Especially after filling your had with dragons from Tiamat's ability.

Quickspell on Non-Creature Naya Card Draw?

Gleeock, here is my creature list. That's all there is. Each either shuffle back into the library from the graveyard and synergize with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Through the Breach , or they are indestructible and synerz with Shifting Shadow

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker

Nesting Dragon

Not as good as expected, but more eggs and dragons are not bad, especially when you can sac them due to Maskwood Nexus .

Xenagos, God of Revels

  • Obviously good with any creature
  • Synergizes as a creature with Shifting Shadow , otherwise hard to remove

Avacyn, Angel of Hope

Kozilek, Butcher of Truth

  • Unfortunately, his casting ability is basically useless in this deck
  • Despite being crazy by itself, Annihilator 4 is great with It That Betrays
  • Shuffles graveyard back in, so I'll get back the non-shuffle creatures, most of all Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger

Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger
Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre

Obvious reasons.

Worldspine Wurm

I love this card.

  • Great with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Through the Breach . That's 30 power with trample for when Sneak Attack and Worldspine Wurm are out
  • Shuffles back in
  • Blightsteel Colossus

    Obviously the best and strongest creature in this deck. Loves Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and I am running Anointed Procession .

    It That Betrays

    It has happened that "It" and its over rings Kozilek and Ulamog have come into play at the same time with Selvala's Stampede . That's 33 power (easily chump blocked though) and 10 permanents sacrificed that I then returned to the battlefield under my control. Primal Rage helps.

    Selvala's Stampede I think is the best to copy

    Hallo Draknoz, thank you for stopping by and sharing your ideas!

    I thought about Defense of the Heart and Morophon, the Boundless for a long time and the reasons why they aren't both in the deck already transcend their playability. I have the first one in another deck and as a personal rule i try not to repeat the same cards in different decks to preserve their... i don't know how to call it, "sense of uniqueness". Regarding the second one, Morophon, i agree about the great synergy. It could be the only effective way to cast my commander since i removed Fist of Suns but... the problem is that i absolutely HATE its art.
    I am aware that this is silly, but i just can't stand that moose pudding look and the obnoxious face. I don't want those dropping cheeks anywhere near my dragons!
    Maybe in the future, if wotc ever reprint it with a new art...

    Selvala's Stampede is a cool suggestion, i didn't knew the card! My concern about its possible use regards my deck's greatest weakness: on many occasions, my hand empties faster than it fills. Card draw it's a bit of a problem still and that's the reason why Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius is the deck and Shadrix Silverquill is in the Maybeboard. With an excessively light hand, Stampede risks to be a dead draw...

    Defense of the Heart I find it to be quite easy to proc in edh and a game-winner if left unchecked.

    Selvala's Stampede just goes crazy in a big creature deck, instead of paying 5 mana for one dragon pay 6 mana for 4!

    Morophon, the Boundless is so synergistic with your commander. I see him in the maybe board and I definitely recommend putting him in. He lets you drop Ur dragon for 4 mana and makes all your other dragons cost 2-3 generic. Maybe cut niv mizzet, he's kind of his own commander.

    Neotrup on (Why) does Mystic Reflection go …

    9 months ago

    It does not. If you cast Mystic Reflection in response to Avenger of Zendikar's enter the battlefield ability, you'll make Avenger of Zendikar tokens equal to the number of lands you control, which will in turn make plant tokens equal to the number of lands you control squared. Additionally, on landfall you're plants will get counters equal to the number of Avengers of Zendikar you currently have, which should be one more than the number of lands you controlled at the time. Overall, it's a very powerful play, but it doesn't go infinite.

    The reason for this is that Mystic Reflection modifies the next time one or more creatures would enter, not all instances of creatures entering for the remainder of the turn. In fact, if you had a second Mystic Reflection to cast in response to the next Avenger of Zendikar entry trigger, it would only replace one more batch of tokens (a batch being equal to the number of lands you control), not all the triggers on the stack.

    In fact, if creatures enter sequentially as part of a single spell or ability, it will only modify the first instance of creatures entering. So if you cast in response to Selvala's Stampede only the 'wild' creatures enter as copies, not the 'free' ones (unless there are no wild votes).

    This also means that an opponent could flash in a creature after Mystic Reflection resolves, before Avenger of Zendikar's ability resolves to steel the effect and make it so your plants just enter as plants.
