Talisman of Impulse Discussion

Halflingz on Rin Seri 2.0

3 weeks ago

Raining Cats and Dogs Nice work bdodds, I think you have selected a handful of great cards but I'd think you could benefit from an earlier CatDog play and cheaper creatures to really start raining cats and dogs. Even without Aluren, every creature coming in with an extra token produces insane value. Especially considering your general's ability.

Below, I would like to outline 4 core concepts and considerations. Ramp, Creatures, Protection, Draw.

Ramp - Prioritizing cards that help you play Rin & Seri turn 3! Nature's Lore Rampant Growth Three Visits Boros Signet Selesnya Signet Gruul Signet Talisman of Conviction Talisman of Unity Talisman of Impulse Fellwar Stone This should be easy to replace the ramp packaging you already have. Look to cut cards like Explosive Vegetation, Chromatic Lantern, Obelisk of Naya, etc.

Creatures - Prioritizing 3CMC or less and upping your creature count to closer to 30! Think about adding creatures that fullfill multiple roles and allow you to run less other stuff. Qasali Pridemage is a great example cause it can pump a swinger +1/+1 as well as remove a pesky enchant or artifact.

Cheap Utility Kitties- Adorned Pouncer Brimaz, King of Oreskos Bronzehide Lion Initiate's Companion King of the Pride Leonin Relic-Warder Oreskos Explorer Pride Sovereign Qasali Ambusher I like the returners you have for multiple cast triggers too! Can get stupid with Aluren... Whitemane Lion Temur Sabertooth Fleetfoot Panther ? Snow Hound

Cheap Utility Doggos- Abzan Beastmaster Ainok Guide Bolt Hound Resolute Watchdog Selfless Savior

Some real cheap beefers could be nice considering they make a token, but could also see not making the cut- Wild Nacatl Loam Lion Leonin Vanguard Isamaru, Hound of Konda Sacred Cat

Protection/Return - Build a huge board and keep it protected! Unbreakable Formation Rootborn Defenses Heroic Intervention Teferi's Protection Asceticism Marshal's Anthem Kindred Boon Akroma's Will Flawless Maneuver

Draw(ish) - The cheaper the cards in hand the more you gonna empty and wanna draw! Skullclamp Colossal Majesty Elemental Bond Beast Whisperer Fecundity Garruk's Uprising Descendants' Path Realmwalker Hunter's Insight Snake Umbra Lifecrafter's Bestiary Mentor of the Meek Guardian Project Return of the Wildspeaker Shamanic Revelation Slate of Ancestry Collective Unconscious Camaraderie

General good cards for Cat/Dog: Maskwood Nexus Mirror Entity Crib Swap Felidar Retreat Basilisk Collar Thousand-Year Elixir Rings of Brighthearth Seht's Tiger Shields of Velis Vel Naya Charm Kindred Summons Volatile Claws Beastmaster Ascension Titanic Ultimatum Hour of Reckoning Triumph of the Hordes Finale of Devastation Idyllic Tutor Winds of Abandon Lightning Greaves (secret lair dog art!) Coat of Arms Swiftfoot Boots Impact Tremors Rhythm of the Wild Aura Shards Shared Animosity Mirari's Wake Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip Any Cheap Changelings really...

ChronoCyrus on Ghired, Conclave Exile

Nice changes so far to the starter deck! I like the infinite combat steps. I would start by switching out any land that HAS to come into play tapped. Add Garruk's Uprising and the Signet's are ok but I like these: Talisman of Conviction & Talisman of Impulse & Talisman of Unity because they don't rely on needing another mana source to give you mana & they correct for 1 dmg, which is fine because you gain life and have 40 to start! Open the Armory & Idyllic Tutor & Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist to help with your equips and searching. MY favorite cheap pet card has to be Fight as One it protects Ghired and a Rhino or other token friend from a board wipe. Check out my Ghired deck over the next week or so, I'm doing updates to it soon and there are some things you could consider adding too :) Chronocyrus Ghired Deck

Something I can always recommend is ramp. Its fun smashing face with Dinos (10/10 would recommend), but you need to cast them or your commander first and its good to do it faster to get more value.

Naya colors have some good sources of ramp- for cheap we've got Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves (just got reprinted at common in Commander Legends!), Elvish Mystic, Commander's Sphere Avacyn's Pilgrim, Zhur-Taa Druid,Sakura-Tribe Elder, Talisman of Impulse, and Talisman of Conviction (this one varies in price a bit- most places I visit have cheap copies). Not as cheap there's Incubation Druid, Birds of Paradise, Sol Ring, Talisman of Unity, and Arcane Signet. More expensive there's also Smothering Tithe and Dockside Extortionist.

DemMeowsephs on Xenagos, God of Revels that xtra combat is good

Hey there! You mentioned needing some help with the mana base, which is certainly something I might be able to aid you in! Your deck has a whopping 4.69 average mana cost, where 33 lands is around good for a average of 3.5. Due to that, you may want to add a few extra lands but mainly you want to have a very strong ramping mana base. Below, you will find some strong ramp cards that could seriously help a ton, if you aren't aware of them already! I would list out all the lands you should consider including, but you ca also find them right here (https://managathering.com/duallands/Gruul.html)! There are quite a lot of great lands you missed so definitely check that out, along with some multi lands like Prismatic Vista, Fabled Passage, Strip Mine, Wasteland, Reflecting Pool, and a ton more. Anyways though, take a look at these ramp cards:

Gosh that was a lot, but from that huge list I'm sure you can pick a few to add! With your average CMC and amount of lands currently, I'd try to make it around 37 lands, with maybe 13-16 ramp spells, or even more if you think the deck needs it. You could replace the ramp spells above with some of the worse ones , (for example cut Farseek for Nature's Lore, and remember lore can search for Stomping Ground) and maybe cut some more of the fluff cards. Like Star of Extinction is great but how many times do you really end up using it and it benefits you? Plus it'll blow up some of your own creatures! And also remember, while equipment is great, Xenagos is an automatic buff, so maybe you don't need as much of that. My point is, your deck needs a lot of ramp, and while other cards may be nice, it may be much harder to win without the ramp. So that said, I hope this helps, be sure to check out some of my decks (cough Double Trouble EDH ⫸PRIMER⫷ cough), good luck on your deck, and have a wonderful day!

Thanks for sharing your list on the Facebook post.

I can see a lot of cards that I also played in my Uril deck,

Uril, Stalker with the Mist

First big issue is see is that you have very little ramp. At a minimum you should be running these mana rocks:Sol Ring, Arcane Signet, and three guild signets or three talismans:

Boros Signet or Talisman of Conviction

Selesnya Signet or Talisman of Unity

Gruul Signet or Talisman of Impulse

I run a lot more additional ramp in my deck. In fact I found making use of land auras like Fertile Ground help with my draw capabilities due to my enchantress effects. Cultivate alone isn’t enough. Add Kodama's Reach, Nature's Lore, and Three Visits. Since you want to drop big auras like the Eldrazi aura, you should consider Academy Rector to cheat out one of those big auras.

You should consider adding the enchantress package:

Verduran Enchantress

Argothian Enchantress

Satyr Enchanter

Season of Growth

Sram, Senior Edificer

Kor Spiritdancer

Enchantress's Presence

Spot removal is important and Uril has access to Contested Cliffs. Hall of Heliod's Generosity is a great utility land to recur those lost auras. Kessig Wolf Run and Yavimaya Hollow are another great utility land.

Don’t just pick the auras that make Uril big. Pick good utility and evasion tactics like flying, trample, protection.

I don’t like Spectra Ward because once it’s on you can’t add more auras. There are plenty of pro creature auras that are cheaper cmc, and Uril doesn’t really need pro color because of the hexproof.

I hope this helps. Look over my build and maybe that’ll give some more ideas.

So, the most efficient speed boost is the expensive rocks.

Mana Crypt, Chrome Mox, Mox Diamond, and Mana Vault

On the somewhat lower end

Fellwar Stone, Mind Stone, Talisman of Unity, Talisman of Impulse and Talisman of Conviction

Now with more mana you should add means of multiple taps Quirion Ranger, Scryb Ranger, and Thousand-Year Elixir are all fairly decent

Smothering Tithe, Training Grounds, and Dockside Extortionist could also use reprints, since they have all become very expensive.

I, myself, have no particular fondness for the talismans (Talisman of Impulse, Talisman of Dominance, and so forth), but I know that some players are fond of them, so I would like to see the allied-colored talismans reprinted, with new artwork and flavor text, to make them consistent with the enemy-colored talismans from Modern Horizons.

Of the first five ultimatums, only Cruel Ultimatum and Titanic Ultimatum have been reprinted, so I would like to see the other three reprinted in this set, as well.

Homeward Path has not been reprinted in some time, so I would like to see it reprinted, again, to keep its price low.

Peoni on Kitties and Doggos

A few off the top of my head you might like are Regal Caracal, Pride Sovereign, Prowling Serpopard, Bronzehide Lion, Qasali Pridemage, Marisi, Breaker of the Coil, and the Cat Daddy.

One thing I would recommend you do is add more ramp. You should have probably around 34-36 lands for this deck if you're on a budget. You should also probably add in a good amount of mana producing artifacts like Sol Ring, Arcane Signet, and talismans like Talisman of Conviction, Talisman of Impulse, and Talisman of Unity. Finally more ramp spells like Rampant Growth, Farseek, and Kodama's Reach would do you a lot of good. You gotta make sure your mana base can consistently support your mana curve, and with these changes it'll be able to no problem.

I tried to keep my recommendations in the spirit of casual pups and kits cuz it's a cute deck. I like it a lot. Hope this helps! :^)
