Hour of my Favorite Card: Crested Sunmare, Mystic Myriarch, or Uncage the Menagerie?

Okay, not really. It’s a sweet card and it won me a few drafts 2 weekends ago but not my favorite. Some other really sweet cards that don’t quite make it to my favorite are as follows…

Majestic Myriarch

Majestic Myriarch is just one of those cards that is screaming for a spot in some token deck. I’m thinking a thopter token deck so Myriarch comes in with flying. Bomat Courier and thopters… flying and haste… idk man. There is a lot of easy spots to slip this in. The reason it’s not my favorite is because if you’re behind in a game, this card is useless.

Crested Sunmare

Crested Sunmare! This is quite the horse, eh?

“Other horses you control have indestructible.” Well that’s pointless…

“At the beginning of each end step, if you gained life this turn, create a 5/5 white horse creature token.” Oh that makes more sense.

Now if you want to get really fancy…

Mirage Mirror

Throw Mirage Mirror out a turn or two before Crested Sunmare. Whenever you gain life or expect Crested Sunmare to be destroyed. Copy and give both pieces indestructible and get two 5/5 horses on the end step.

My Favorite Card in Hour of Devastation is…
Uncage the Menagerie

Uncage the Menagerie

This card is so neat! Here are a few combos you can do!

Ethersworn Canonist & Tarmagoyf
Devoted Druid & Vizier of Remedies
Archbound Ravager & Atog
Apocolypse Hydra & Hooded Hydra

Etched Champion & Chief of the Foundry & Metalworker
Diregraf Colossus & Ammit Eternal & Lord of the Accursed (Zombie Standard B/G)

There is literally millions of combinations for Uncage the Menagerie. Tune your EDH deck to use it and I’m sure you’ll be singing when you have an infinite amount of tokens, mana, or life. 😀

I want this card in my Atraxa deck to tutor for Devoted Druid and Vizier of Remedies for infinite mana so I can then cast Exsanguinate and lose all my friends. I’m convinced that’s why people play Atraxa, to lose friends.

Anyways what X card combos will you tutor for with Uncage the Menagerie?

Bomat Courier budget deck

Guys check this out, I loved playing this deck it is an absolute blast.

  • Bomat Courier
  • Incorrigible Youths
  • Bloodhall Priest

I stayed awake for hours the night after Thanksgiving thinking of how I could make madness and the Bomat work so well.

Bomat clearing your hand while the Bloodhall Priest resolves and comes into play = 2 extra damage and still get a new hand.

My Favorite MTG Card From Eldritch Moon.

I was already using a blue/white spirit deck I made from cards of Shadows Over Innistrad. So, naturally when I started looking at card in Eldritch Moon Spell Queller really caught my eye.

Spell Queller

So this card may look unexciting at first but with the cards currently in standard there is a lot to work with. I’m already taking things out of play and then back in so I can use Topplegeist’s ETB ability of tapping opponents creatures. With this I can cast and prevent anything. A creature, enchantment, artifact, anything as long as it’s CMC is 4 or less.

So you’ve got this card and it prevents anything. Even things that say “cannot be countered” will be exiled. This could swing the momentum of the game especially mid-game.

in my head I see this playing out as you prevent a 2/2 flier, or a 3/3 on the ground or a myriad of other medium sized creatures that can pose a problem. So you remove their creature right now while putting a 2/3 on the board. Such a good trade.

Then 3 or 4 turns later they deal with the Spell Queller and their early/mid-game creature or spell gets cast and it’s much, much less detrimental. Unless it’s a burn spell. 3 life now or 3 life later may not make a difference.

I just really like the control this card can give you.

Their turn, they cast Gisela and you say “cute” and respond with Spell Queller. They wont have their bomb on the table and you’ll have a 2/3 flier. It’ll take at least a turn for them to respond but you’ll at least have a possible attack with a 2/3 or just not get hit for 4 the following turn.

What cards do you like out of this newest set?
