Started playing casual mtg with pals in the mid-90s, EDH took hold around 2008 and we never looked back. I am a grizzled, gnarled up mtg veteran and I miss the powerhouse cards of yore.

Said on Chulane or Roon?...

#1

Thank you fadelightningmm & GhostChieftain. You're right in that Chulane is more geared toward combo, but I'm wondering if he'd be a worthy value engine on his own in a generic non-combo creature based ETB deck. The reason I ask is because I've been running Roon for years and although he can be effective, he can also be slow and relies on having a few ETB dorks out. I'm thinking that swapping him out for Chulane with the exact same deck could add some gas/value.

I may have just answered my own question but I'm still curious to hear if anyone else has tried this strategy with Chulane because most of the Chulane decks I see on here seem to aim to combo out with Food Chain etc. I should probably just try it out, see how it plays.

I'm curious to hear opinions on who you all think is the better general for a creature heavy blink/flicker/ETB style of deck. Roon of the Hidden Realm is the classic Bant flicker general of choice, but the draw/ramp + bounce option on Chulane, Teller of Tales is very appealing.
