Pestilence !
Posted By: shady-tradesman (11/1/2009 10:09:01 AM)


Fun math fact I just discovered: If you use Pestilence or Pyrohemia repeatedly, starting from a single plant, the number of plants you have after each activation of the damage ability (all in a single turn) follows the Fibonacci sequence: 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, etc. The number of damaged plants you have also follows the sequence, and lags behind by two elements. In other words, if you have produced 21 plants, 8 of those would be damaged.

I'll leave the proof of this as an exercise to the reader.

Phytohydra: Ouch! Was that an acorn fired from a random catapult? Well, I'll split over this.... Wait... where did that squirrel come from?

Love using this in a modified Counterpunch deck. Not an amazing combo, but useful and quite amusing.

By investing some mana into Coat of Arms, you can use any of the combos listed here for a huge army of powerful defenders. Use the RotE enchantment to cause creatures to lose flying when attacking, and then throw down something that shares a type with this, and you're in business.

Protean Hydra or Phytohydra would be my recommendations, by the way, though Phytohydra breaks the pure Green theme.

This in a two-headed giant where the other player had Tibor and Lumia. The pure amount of defenders produced made Vent Sentinel a real killer.
The deck has now been improved with the addition of 4 Blaze, 4 Fireball and 4 Overgrown Battlement.

People don't seem to get "Combo Cards" well, I keep reading this and people call it "trash" because it has 0/2 defender and costs CMC of 5? They don't bother to look at the text at all, only "it's trash because it can't even defend"

i think this will go quite nicely in my Doran, the Siege Tower commander deck with Avenger of Zendikar, Pestilience and Rolling Stones!

@Garralan A spot of Infest can do the trick.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
