lagotripha on The Inferno Counts to 20: Budget + Sideboard Swap

1 month ago

This is a cool concept deck.

Simple tweaks - Rush of Blood is extra copies of Unleash Fury, Wine of Blood and Iron also works.

I feel like the easist method would be to get to 18 and boost twice - the simplest would be +3/+0 from the ability and then double power, costing 13 mana total, or 6 1 turn and 7 the next. Alternatively, ifninite red mana instant wins with the dragon or a way to search for it.

Shuko points to Golem-Skin Gauntlets/Cranial Plating/Nettlecyst. By pairing it with p/t boosts you could have a more reliable threat that happens to combo off if you get it perfect, but it doesn't feel as efficient even if its more reliable. The artifacts theme might be sweet if its paired with treasure tokens or Pentad Prism type effects to power the combo, but it would need some sacrifice effects to make sure you could get back under 20 power in a pinch.

Speaking personally, I'd go for a casual G/R list, with Xenagos, God of Revels/Exponential Growth/Soul's Might and a +1/+1 counters theme with Death's Presence and 'sac for red' creatures like Satyr Hedonist. Its a cool idea for a casual table. Drumhunter is neat.

A second creature that has a cool 'hit big power' ability would be nice - Mossbridge Troll is neat - I might theme around Bloodshot Trainee and Greenhilt Trainee. Minion of the Mighty is a cute intended synergy.

I really didn't want to play any of the new Elder Dragons. I pulled Tanazir in that sick full-alternate art...I might consider building him now.

Cards you might want to consider:

Simic Ascendancy

Inexorable Tide

Contagion Clasp

Clockspinning

Everflowing Chalice

Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter

Mowu, Loyal Companion

Soul's Might

Galloping Lizrog

Vorel of the Hull Clade

Peligrad on Tutoring a new edh player

Personally, I think voltron strategies are some of the most cost effective for a beginning budget player.

A commander like Skullbriar, the Walking Grave can be tuned to be competitive at any table and does especially well in duels.

A lot of his best cards like Evolutionary Escalation Feast on the Fallen Hydra's Growth Ordeal of Nylea Biogenic UpgradeSoul's Might Ring of Kalonia FireshriekerWinding Constrictor Corpsejack Menace and many others are cheap.

My deck is not budget, but you could replace the most expensive 30 cards with budget friendly alternatives and still have a deck that stomps most tables. https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/15-09-20-skullbriar-the-walking-grave/

Interesting deck +1

What is your meta like?

Proud Wildbonder - Seems too unimpactful for 4 mana

Essence Warden - Whats the purpose of this?

Beast Whisperer - Seems cool, I tried him in my build. Does he get a chance to stick around long enough to draw you atleast 2-3 cards?

Ravager Wurm - Is this meta against maze of ith?

Shivan Wurm - Reusing ETB effects or something I'm missing? Seems weak

Voracious Cobra - Gosh this card brings back memories from my childhood. Curious how it's been for you, seems like a card they need to burn removal on if they want a chance of attacking you unless they go wide

Windstorm - Meta?

Unleash Fury < Berserk

Fog - Meta, if so, why not get the new green fog that came out recently?

Soul's Might - Return of the Wildspeaker would better serve you as you can draw cards in response to removal rather than your creature getting removed in response to might being cast.

Ancient Tomb , Castle Garenbrig are ramp

Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma - Trample and ramp

Heroic Intervention - Protection

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds - Ramp and draw

The Great Henge , Somberwald Sage, Shaman of Forgotten Ways are all good ramp

Inferno Titan - Removal

Kogla, the Titan Ape - Removal

Deflecting Swat - Utility! Counter counterspells, redirect targetted removal/draw/extra turns. Very powerful

Rishkar's Expertise, Bonders' Enclave, Elder Gargaroth, Greater Good, Life's Legacy, are all amazing card draw options, especially greater good. Seriously, don't sleep on greater good

I hope the suggestions werent too overwhelming, I just didn't see that much draw and I figured that adding more never hurts.

Spell_Slam on He was a kickr boi, she said c u later boi

Great start! You have pretty much all the good kicker cards. I think you could focus a bit more on the secondary theme of Hallar, which is +1/+1 counters. Hallar doesn't care where the counters come from, which means you don't actually need that many Kicker cards to make him deal tons of damage.

Hunger of the Howlpack is a great addition to the deck, being one of the most efficient counter-givers in Pauper.

Elven Rite, New Horizons and Soul's Might are all very efficient ways to get lots of counters on your Commander.

Mutant's Prey and Hunt the Weak are great removal spells for your deck that is chock-full of +1/+1 counters. Feral Contest also isn't bad.

Ivy Lane Denizen is a must have in this deck. You make plenty of tokens, which can either make Hallar massive or simply make your 1/1s into 2/2s, which is an incredible boost.

Longshot Squad gives most of your team reach. Aquastrand Spider also does it for a cost, but can also distribute counters. Spike Colony is a pretty beefy creature that can also give its counters to others. This can make combat very difficult for the opponent on top of all the synergy it gives naturally.

Horned Kavu is extremely useful in this deck, since it can re-buy so many of your ETB triggers for lots of value.

It's so hard to get card advantage in these colours. I would definitely play Entourage of Trest to try to keep up with Blue and Black decks. I also don't leave home without Rolling Thunder and Elven Cache in these colours as cards to catch you up in card advantage. You could also be running up to six cycling lands, namely Tranquil Thicket and Forgotten Cave. In terms of synergy, you could also go for Tishana's Wayfinder and Brazen Buccaneers.

I would also think about adding all the mediocre +1/+1 counter distributers, like Bond Beetle, Kujar Seedsculptor, Ironshell Beetle, Scrounging Bandar, Satyr Grovedancer.

Optimator on Bastards on Parade

Some potential cards. Most of these might be side-grades or out of budget but are worth noting in the Maybeboard. I have a few of these:

Ramp:

Creatures are obviously optimal, what with elf anthems and counters and stuff. I would try to squeeze in the first three if you can. The tempo of getting your commander down on turn 2 is amazing.

Fyndhorn Elves , Priest of Titania , Boreal Druid , Farhaven Elf , Leyline of Abundance , Castle Garenbrig , Llanowar Tribe , Overgrowth , Reap and Sow , Kodama's Reach , Explosive Vegetation , Nature's Lore , Ranger's Path , Skyshroud Claim , Grow from the Ashes , Emerald Medallion , Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, Harrow , Circuitous Route

Utility:

Rishkar's Expertise , Soul's Majesty , Mirror Shield , Zendikar Resurgent , Primal Rage , Heroic Intervention , Return to Nature , Overwhelming Stampede , Overrun , Beastmaster Ascension , Loxodon Warhammer , Colossal Majesty , Rancor , Vivien, Champion of the Wilds , Blossoming Defense , Withstand Death , Titanic Brawl , Ancient Animus , Momentous Fall , Nature's Claim , Once and Future , Regrowth , Wildest Dreams , Road of Return , Creeping Corrosion , Season of Growth , Blanchwood Armor , Sandwurm Convergence , Garruk, Primal Hunter , Vivien Reid , Vivien of the Arkbow , Ghost Quarter ,

Aspect of Mongoose is nice but prevents untapping shenanigans with your commander.

Counters:

Some obvious out-of-budget stuff here and some lower-powered stuff too but I'll suggest them for posterity.

Llanowar Reborn , Karn's Bastion , Forge of Heroes , The Great Henge , Incubation Druid , Loyal Guardian , Tuskguard Captain , Pollenbright Druid , Solidarity of Heroes , Biogenic Upgrade , Durable Handicraft , Planewide Celebration , Courage in Crisis , Verdant Confluence , Bow of Nylea , Contagion Clasp , Contagion Engine , Hydra's Growth , Path of Discovery , Retreat to Kazandu , Forced Adaptation , Evolutionary Escalation , New Horizons , Nissa, Voice of Zendikar , Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter , Vivien, Arkbow Ranger , Kalonian Hydra , Arbor Armament , Stony Strength , Savage Summoning , Hunger of the Howlpack , Soul's Might , The Crowd Goes Wild , Armory of Iroas , Weapon Rack , Predatory Hunger , Primeval Bounty

I have a Drove of Elves I'm not using

TwinStags on The Quick and The Dead

Dånk, stoked to see your rotations. Biogenic is rad. I’m realizing the create-counter cards: Increasing Savagery , Biogenic Upgrade , Hunger of the Howlpack , Soul's Might , and Blessings of Nature are way important. I really wish their was better options. Savagery and Blessing are the only ones that I feel push the game.
