I'd like to enter my new Monkey Cage deck in
the deck building contest. The one I posted
in the Casual Decks section had an aweful lot
of rares in it and it would be expensive to
build. I went back to the drawing board, so
to speak, and came up with a version.
I would like to say that Deranged Hermit is a
great creature to Victimize. Having eight 3/3
creatures to block is some good. Then on my
turn if I've got a Gaea's Cradle out its easy to pay the echo on the Hermits. Even so, I removed them from the deck.
The overall idea for the new deck is the same
Discard Thorny to the Cluster and beat my
opponent to death. In addition to that I have
another way to use any token creatures I
generate. Now this new deck isn't that great
but I like it.
4 Llanowar Elves
4 Phyrexian Ghoul
4 Birds of Paradise
4 Yavimaya Granger
3 Thorn Elemental
3 Phyrexian Plaguelord
2 Saber Ants
3 Saploring Cluster
2 Monkey Cage
2 Creeping Mold
1 Greater Good
1 Vampiric Tutor
2 Thran Quarry
1 Gaea's Cradle
Phyrexian Ghoul it a beating if I've a few
Cage, Ant or Cluster tokens in play. It can
also help me draw a lot of cards if Greater
Zadok is in play. As a general rule I usually
sack the Granger to him also. I'd like to
work Rancor into the deck but I can't figure
out what to remove.
I cut the Cage down to two because it doesn't
do me a lot of good until I get a couple of
Elementals into the graveyard.
Well, thats my new cage deck all comments and
suggestions are welcome.
