Squirrel Prision varient

    OK,
    I should probably call this thing "Cobra Prision". when I played a few solitare Games I ended up with alot more Cobra tokens than Squirrel's.

    Ashnod's Alter + Snake Basket= Double Tokens.
    Need to Gain life? Token + Claws of Gix.
    A bunch of tokens + Fallen Angel = Game. Maybe?
    Of course Opposition + Tokens = Lock down

    Can you see what I'm Trying to do?

    I need help mostly with the Lands, but if you see something that can be done to make this deck crazy good, please reply. All suggestions welcome.

    1 Fallen Angel

    4 LLanowar Elves
    4 Deranged Hermit
    4 Yavimaya Granger
    4 Priest of Titania
    4 Skyshroud Poacher


    4 Claws of Gix
    4 Ashnods alter
    4 Snake Basket


    4 Opposition
    4 Memory lapse


    By the way this is for casual play so cards don't have to be T2. I just limit myself to T2 because,... "all those cards to choose from"? I'd loose my mind.:eek:

    Thanks for Your help in advance

    I've found this to be a pretty good start for Squirrel Prision, post regionals.
    4 Opposition
    4 Rising waters
    2 Elvish Lyrist
    4 Llanowar Elves
    4 Priest of Titania
    4 Yavimaya Granger
    4 Skyshroud Poacher
    4 Deranged Hermet
    3 Masticore
    4 Daze or Memory Lapse
    10 islands
    13 Forests

    You could always add Helix or Morphling or more counters instead of the Rising Waters, but the Waters are awesom with Opposition: You get a hard lock rather than a soft lock.

    Hi,

    I had to leave this deck half finished yesterday, so I edited the original post this morning. Check it out, and see what you think.

    I'd drop the Claws of Gix for Elvish Lookout (or whatever the Destiny 1/1 untargettable Elf is)

    Hello,

    I know I'm probably not going to get many responses here, becuase of the deck contest and all.

    What do you think about the snake baskets, and alters?
    What about the lands, do they look OK?

    I played a casual game on apprentice, and pretty quickly generated, 8 Squirrels and 12 Cobras. I know... One Earthquake or alike would ruin this deck, so what can I do?

    As long as I have Snake Basket/alter I can sac the tokens for more tokens, but is that good enough?

    Other cards that might be good,
    Smoke stack?
    Caller of the Hunt?
    Can you think of anything?


    Thanks

    Keep the Snake Baskets as back-up for the Squirrels. You can sac all your creatures in case of disaster, but you'll need another mana sink then. I'd consider using Rocket Launcher, as it gives you another path to victory as well as some removal.

    I love the latest version of your deck. It inspired me
    to build the Negotiations deck.

    Hey, CC

    Kyren Negotiations Hmm.... Damn, I wish I would have thought of that, I love it.

    I though I needed another path to victory, so put in Strokes. Eh, can't think of anything else.

    BTW, Gizmo, You havn't been giving advice lately. Is the Doctor out? Playing alot of golf perhaps? :D

    A friend of mine came up with a combo also including Ashnod's altar and snake basket. Each 4 times in a red destruction deck (fireball, roll of thunder etc.) if you see what i'm going to: create enough mana to properly destroy your opponent.... bla-di-bla. I'm still working on a proper deck with this combo.

    Welcome Waldtyr! Man, you picked an old thread to bring up :)

    With all of the Sliver-Poisonous decks out there, it may be an interesting concept to revisit.

    Squirrel Prison is an awesome deck. Excellent choice for a first thread necromancy.

    Yeah, I was searching for some information on aplying Ashnod's Altar when I came by this forum thread (oinking Google aye :rolleyes: ). When reading it I reminded that deck strategy me and my pal came up with, wich also was a pretty while ago ironicly :cool:
