Surly Badgersaur

Creature — Badger Dinosaur

Whenever you discard a creature card, put a +1/+1 counter on Surly Badgersaur.

Whenever you discard a land card, create a Treasure token. (It's an artifact with ", Sacrifice this artifact: Gain one mana of any colour.)

Whenever you discard a noncreature, nonland card, Surly Badgersaur fights up to one creature you don't control.

Library of Leng is indeed a wonky card, but it's a pretty nifty combo piece within certain types of discard concept strategies.

When it comes to Madness, what you essentially have is two replacement effects modifying the same instance of the card being discarded, so you have a choice of which you want to apply. You can either discard the card into exile, or you may discard it to the top of your library. If you discard it into exile, then Library of Leng will no longer see an effect to replace and you then have the choice of casting the card for it's Madness cost or putting it into your graveyard. If you discard it to the top of your library then the Madness ability will no longer see an effect to replace, the card will not be in exile, and you will not be able to cast it for it's Madness cost. In practical terms, Madness and Library will not combo together to produce a cool line of play. In real world terms, Anje decks might not mind, they might be very happy to discard the card to the top of the library and repeatedly draw and discard it using Anje's ability. With a card like Glint-Horn Buccaneer in play, for example, this would kill opponents.

A mechanic with better synergy with Library of Leng is Cycling. Cycling cards discard themselves first, then draw a card. This can be used to cycle the same card over and over again, and a similar situation as to the aforementioned Buccaneer line of play can occur with a card like Drannith Stinger in play killing opponents as a result of this process. A combo such as Library of Leng + Tectonic Reformation + Surly Badgersaur + Drannith Stinger + any land would form a self sustaining loop to kill opponents, for example.

Additionally, some Cycling cards have triggered effects when they cycle, and Library of Leng can allow a pilot to loop those effects. Gilded Lotus + Library of Leng + Vizier of Tumbling Sands would produce infinite mana, for example. Add in something like a Lightning Rift and this could become lethal. Bone Miser + Library of Leng + Barren Moor is another infinite mana combo, though it only produces black mana. Add in a Gempalm Polluter, however, and this set up would also become lethal.

Necrosis24 on DePietro and Channel?

This has made me realize I’ve been reading Ghost of Ramirez DePietro wrong this entire time. I thought his trigger was tied to the player that was dealt damage.

Well anyways my top pick for a partner would be Tormod, the Desecrator for all the graveyard shenanigans (i.e Living Death) and discard value.

Some high synergy cards would be:

Looking at channel tho there seems to be a higher density in temur so you would have access to better ramp and can do wheel/card draw affects. So perhaps Tana, the Bloodsower with:

  • Rielle, the Everwise

  • Brallin, Skyshark Rider  Flip
  • The Locust God + Wheels
  • Conspiracy Theorist
  • Mizzix's Mastery + Lier, Disciple of the Drowned
  • Glint-Horn Buccaneer
  • Surly Badgersaur
  • Otherwise you can go for purate tribal in izzet with Breeches, Brazen Plunderer or monoblue with Malcolm, Keen-Eyed Navigator

    Great synergistic deck. Looks like alot of fun to pilot Here are a couple suggestions I thought if while looking at the list.

    Not a vampire but Surly Badgersaur also Indomitable Creativity Inspiring Statuary goes well with blood tokens.

    You might want a little more card draw over card selection like something that death trigger to draw. There are plenty.

    I have a serious question. How do you deal with indestructible creatures? I don't think you can tbh.

    Heirloom Blade does some work on another deck I have might fit here.

    Charcoal Diamond and fire Diamond can probably switch to some other 2 mana rock that enters untapped.

    Your whole world is going to change when you realize Library of Leng and Anje are a match made in heaven.

    What you want to do with infinite untap/tap/draw/discard triggers is up to you. I reommend Bone Miser, Glint-Horn Buccaneer, and Surly Badgersaur as good places to start.

    Would Surly Badgersaur be a consideration? I know you're looking more towards cEDH, so perhaps not?
