Hey Guys and Gals
I am really exited to present to you Part 1 of a four part deck tech series
highlighting my top 4 Oathbreaker decks!
In Part 1 I will be going over my very first Oathbreaker!
it has changed quite bit over the past year and a half, it really has evolved to take advantage of Pophet of Kruphix. Now having said that it is not a full fledged combo/Prohet deck.
The main goal of the deck is to amass an army of tokens, play out a crater hoof and stomp all your opponents with 100+ trample dmg each. All backed up with blues protection and whites removal.
there are quite a few synergies in this deck.
1: Prophet of Kruphix. Yes while I said this is not a Prohet deck it is the crazy play line the deck has besides one golden late game play, more on that later, I essentially goes like this 1: With a token doubler in play, cast Tamiyo, either have Propher from in deck search or go ahead and use that ramp to Eladrami’s Call for her. 2 Now you untap during the next persons turn, more opponents the better, Eladrami’s Call again for Deep Forest Hermit you now have 8 tokens, untap during second opponents turn cast Deep Forest Hermit, untap during 3rd opponents turn and Eladrami’s Call again for crater hoof. During your turn cast Craterhoof and attack, assuming you had no creatures in play before, not likely, you now have 10 creatures that get +10 +10 and haste, the squirrels get +1+1 also. so you now have 8 12/12 trample haste squirels a 11/11 Hermit and a 15/15 Craterhoof. Thats a whooping 122 trample damage coming at the whole board! that’s 30.5 dmg ea! WOW!
2: Search effects for creatures. Creatures are the mainstay of this deck. They ramp, counter, create token’s and ultimately is our win con. Craterhoof Behemoth is a important component to this decks performance, tho not necessary to win, adding search effects increases our “total” count of Craterhoof’s. On top of that I add a few key tool box creatures. Also this allows us to get out Prophet of Kruphix more consistently for the crazy plays she enables when we have our Oathbreaker out.
3:Doubling season enables on crazy synergy in this deck. simply playing doubling season and untapping with it in play allows us to cast Tamiyo, instantly use her ultimate and after drawing 3 cards and being able to cast everything for free, accept your signature spell, will enable you to win most of the time that turn.
4: Chulane, frilled mystic loop. which one the one side is great for grindy games, however she is really in there to take advantage of Deep Forest Hermit’s etb and Craterhoof Behemoth’s…. not that it should be necessary. and Charming prince is a nice quick and cheap way of flickering Deep Forest Hermit and its attached to life gain, a nice way of sneaking in a one of effect that can come in handy. also Chulane can flicker this.
5: 4 one sided board wipes, to clear away all your opponents blockers and go for the kill! not likely that your gonna need it Pfff And a couple exile permanent effects on a creature.
6: While not a synergy counter magic is essential to protect the fragile framework of the deck, no Craterhoof no instant win. so I crammed in as many as i could without affecting the decks consistency.
