    Do you all think Ravenous Chupacabra has any place in the deck or board anywhere? I'm happy to pay 1 more mana for a big game hunter that hits anything.


    No way. Double black is too hard to get + 4 mana is not compatible with company.

    This deck's played double black before both maindeck and in the board and it wasnt that long ago that the deck played Archangel of Thune. Not to mention linvala is a common enough sideboard card. Just cause a card cant be hit by company doesnt mean it's instantly disqualified.

    Am I missing something?

    Don’t get me wrong, tidehollow sculler is great, but why are people choosing this over kitesail Freebooter? The latter is less taxing on mana and has flying... this combined with gavony township can give a real boost if we can’t find our combo.

    If I am missing something then I love to be enlightened Smile


    I mean it's a fair consideration. Flying is huge, and the easier mana cost is a bonus.
    However we aren't restricted by tribe (like the humans deck) and sculler hits more than just instants and sorceress. It can take whatever you need in order to disrupt any opponent. It also works far better in concert with meddling mage (which was my suggestion immediately above that might merit a glance).

    Being able to take a threat can be just as valuable as taking a removal spell. Freebooter can miss a lot.


    Additionally Freebooter doesn't interact favorably with Viscera Seer like sculler does.

    What are all your thoughts on Distended Mindbender? I've always had a soft spot for this card in the board but I rarely see it anymore. Are there any matchups it'd be good for other than obvious midrange stuff like jund?

    tbh I'm not a huge fan of tracker. I'd rather just run another recruiter since it does the same thing but better a lot of the time.

    Anyone else hate the 8rack matchup? Feels like it always comes down to a topdeck war where you either win because you attacked with a Vizier 8 times or you lose because you only drew lands or chords and they attacked with mutavault 8 times.

    Side note, how would you all sideboard for this? There's a pretty frequent 8rack player at my lgs. I've been boarding out viziers, scooze, and 1-2 chords and bringing in value stuff like tracker, voice of resurgence, and sin collecter. what are you thoughts?

    Side out mana sources vs. a land destruction deck? No, I would not.


    Aren't they bad vs anger/inferno titan?

    Would you guys side out mana dorks vs RG ponza?

    Do you guys think 4x druid 4x vizier is basically required now?

    Watching the coco mirror between DeCandio and Dan Jessup. Craig Krempels pretty clearly has no idea how the deck works and thinks it's 100% a combo deck. He literally called the deck bad if you're not comboing lol. I wonder how long before people realize it's just a good midrange creature deck too.

    Ultimately the deck is versatile enough to play through just about any hate. In addition, this deck was good before vizier-druid so even if they ban the combo we'll still be fine.

    It's very weird to see an abzan list in the mtgo dailies almost every day.

    Regarding Elvish vidionary: with Eternal witness, satyr wayfinder can also do it. Courser of kruphix + horizon canopy can do it. Tireless tracker (with or without Renegade rallier help) can do it.

    I think I'd rather have a tracker than Elvish visionary.

    Also of note, I am considering moving away from qasali pridemage in the sb for caustic caterpillar. One mana cheaper to chord, but more importantly, mono green. I was in a spot where a graffdiggers cage was coming and I wanted to chord in response, and having double rec sage was bad. There was another instance where I had infinite mana, but had to deal with 2x rest in peace (I usually kill with infinite bolster), but no white. Since I couldn't witness back a chord/coco (due to the 2nd rip), I almost lost that game.

    It is really minor, but relevant to keep in mind


    Both of those situations are incredibly corner. Pridemage is just miles ahead of Caterpillar as a whole.

    I would list Grixis Delver is a bad matchup as well. Tons of removal and interaction+fast clocks that quickly outclass our own creatures. It's very hard to beat turn 1 delver, turn 2 tasigur

    Mindbender and Sculler really dont fulfill the same roles. I don't think they should be compared. Mindbender is a value card for midrange and control that's hard to interact with. Sculler is a 2 drop that takes a card in the matchups where you want it.(i.e., very little removal/expensive removal)

    As much as I like Voice of Resurgence, it gets much worse relative to the number of renegade ralliers and viscera seers, both of which are worse in a druid-vizier build.
