I mean... it's just kind of a generic mana denial card. Thematically it fits the most with Shattergang Brothers, and it's the kind of card that certainly needs to be in at least a Jund combination.

Herald of Leshrac

Holy crap how did I not know about Dead Man's Chest. That card is a slam dunk auto-include in Ramses Overdark (if I'd seen the post before SuperStrength replied, that would have been my answer)

Herald wants to be in a The Gitrog Monster deck or a Dakkon Blackblade deck. The former would love to eat his own lands for card draw and having opponent lands could help you cast spells, and Dakkon would just want them for buffs.

A dirty trick with Herald of Leshrac is to slap an Assault Suit on him and never have to worry about not having lands to steal.

Next card: Lifecraft Awakening

Most green decks would just use this to give creatures +1/+1 counters, or to pop out a Signet as a surprise blocker for 2 mana or something, but there's better things they can do than have this card. Glissa, the Traitor would care about artifacts slightly more and capitalise more on that.

But if you've got Experiment Kraj sitting around, you can now give him the activated abilities of any fun artifact you've got sitting around, like Contagion Engine or Thran Temporal Gateway. If you don't have an artifact sitting around, you can do something like pay 2 mana to put a +1/+1 counter on Kydele then activate her ability from both of them for net mana gain if you drew a few cards this turn. (whoops, still only targets artifacts.)


Next card: Hamletback Goliath

It can only target artifacts. But still, clever choice.

That synergizes in several ways with Najeela. It's a Warrior, so she makes a token when it attacks. Her tokens make it bigger. And she can give it lifelink and trample and extra attacks.

Honorable mentions to Anax and Cymede, Brion Stoutarm, Bruse Tarl, and Tibor and Lumia.

Next: Celestial Force

Oof! Thanks, I must have been thinking of it targeting artifact creatures.
(Also, wow, I might need to try a Najeela deck soon...)

I've played against one, and she's pretty gross.

Horde of Notions- I don't see it making the cut outside of a dedicated elemental build. Cheating it into play for 5 may be worth it.

I imagine it probably wants to live in some b/g deck with a lot of Pestilence-style effects.

My first choice would be Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest since he plays in the same broadly-applied +1/+1 counter universe, but, I think there could be a Pir, Imaginative Rascal/Toothy, Imaginary Friend pile as well.

Or, maybe Ulrich of the Krallenhorde, because it could work with the fight mechanic.

Next up: Liliana's Contract. (Please not Belzenlok.)

I'd be tempted to put this in a Demon-only Kaalia deck, using white to go find the enchantment and red for... shenanigans and the odd multicolour demon.

Next card: Incremental Blight

Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons. You're running a token swarm and -1/-1 counter deck. Here's all the gears Incremental Blight can help turn in this deck, in addition to you removing or weakening 3 cratures:


This deck may also be running Archetype of Finality, Beastmaster Ascension, Creakwood Liege, and Driven // Despair.

Incremental Blight seems pretty nice in this overall gameplan, I think.



Bramble Sovereign

Well the title of the thread is "I need a hero", but this guy... does not. He will be good in pretty much any green deck.

That being said, the most interesting thing I could think of is to pair him up with the new Thantis, the Warweaver.
Make your opponents have extra guys that are forced to attack. Make copies of Hornet Queen and Watcher in the Web to make sure you can block any that come your way.

He kinda also makes Jugan less bad... but still...

Anyways, next card, Skull Storm from the new commander sets. Now that is a card that needs a hero.

Hmmm... this is a tough one. Let's see... a commander with a black CI, tends to produce lots of mana, tends to clear the opponent's board a lot, preferably cheap, and preferably in a deck where they die and get recasted often. Also, some kind of life loss subtheme would be great as well.

In the end, I think the winner will be Karador, Ghost Chieftain who not only can produce tons of mana, but also lowers his own casting cost, and also has tons of life-death shenanigans and Grave Pact effects. Runners up included Kess, Dissident Mage, Jelvala, Nephalia's Scourge, Kresh, the Bloodbraided, and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord.

Next card: Jugan, the Rising Star. As a member of the 99

Oddly, I've never seen this guy be anywhere near as bad as people claim he is! The obvious answers are Marath, Will of the Wild, or Animar, Soul of Elements- but my favorite home for him is Ulasht, the Hate Seed where Fling tricks and tools like Goblin Bombardment are more the general focus of things. Skullbriar, the Walking Grave is also a perfect home for it. In either case, I'm a big fan of Death's Presence in these kinds of decks for how they overlap with Jugan or Increasing Savagery for pseudo-Kresh action.

Up next, Crater Hellion- or if it's been done, maybe Embermaw Hellion?
