Time to get back to this thread... I've neglected it a bit.
I think I agree with you guys that the three biggest holes here are anti-fliers, card draw and anti-artifact/enchantment.1. Anti-Artifact/Enchantment
Tich is right that Nullmage Shepherd
is probably not the guy (er... girl) here. I love her so, but she's going to struggle to have three friends on the table, methinks. I note that I have not a single artifact in here, so Shatterstorm
variants likely go straight in. I'm wary of waxing my own Asceticism
s and Curse of Stalked Prey
s if I have an enchantment sweeper. I do
have Primeval Light
s...2. Card Draw
This is where I'm going to struggle, really. SotF
probably counts as card draw (simply because it's so awesome), but outside of that... I haven't got copies of Harmonize
or Triumph of Ferocity
lying around, alas. I think
I've got some Collective Unconscious
es lying around... 3. Anti-Fliers
Oh, man, you're dead right on Silklash Spider
, Tich. I've only got a singleton, and he's currently busy tearing my Cube up. Hidden Spider
kind of tickles me, actually... I must have thousands of those things. Raking Canopy
and Gravity Well
are also possibilities.
Alternatively, I suppose I can always head down the Deadly Recluse
/ Thornweald Archer
path...The Other Stuff
You're right on Lumberknot
, Tich. I just need to find copies. Haven't bought much of Innistrad-block (have a box of RTR on pre-order, though). This deck probably needs to win via ampheasibly large hexproof trampling critters, and Lumberknot
is dead on. I'm also pondering the merits of Hamletback Goliath
here. Probably not a full playset due to CC, but still, he's big
And yeah, it pays to be diverse with your X spells. I think I can probably dig some alternatives out of the collection somewhere.
I... actually don't think I've got any Reach of Branches
.... that's a pity. Recursive and all...
