MTG Brewer: An Avacyn Restored Brew – Remember the Titans

Ever since the full Avacyn Restored spoiler became live, I have been brewing non- stop. Here is an interesting brew that combines potentially two of the more broken cards in Avacyn Restored, Descendent’s Path and Cavern of Souls. Of course, it really hasn’t been refined or play tested yet.

Remember the Titans:

4 Birds of Paradise
4 Rampant Growth
4 Sphere of the Suns
4 Descendent’s Path

4 Primeval Titan
4 Inferno Titan
4 Grave Titan
4 Frost Titan
4 Sun Titan

10 Forests
2 Swamps
2 Mountains
2 Plains
2 Islands
4 Cavern of Souls
1 Inkmoth Nexus
1 Kessig Wolf Run

So basically this deck runs every Titan. The weakest of the five might actually be Sun Titan since you probably won’t be getting much back. Anyways Cavern of Souls and ramp spells makes sure you get out the first Titan out quickly and safely. Then with Descendent’s Path naming Giant you basically have 1/3 chances of hitting Titan every turn and playing it for free. So far the decklist is to test out the theory, so it is as streamlined as you can be. I might get some proxies and see how it runs. I can see this deck getting some clunky hands so maybe it needs something like Faithless Looting to cycle through the deck. Also the deck might need some reactive spells since the better decks out there can attack the very fragile mana base.

All in all, this seems like a fun deck to play in Friday Night Magic.

  1. Cute… so how much does this entire deck cost? 🙂

    BTW – I did run a deck similar to your Seance deck at FNM a few weeks ago. Won the first match pretty easily… guy went “WTF?” when I hit the combo. The next match didn’t go so well and the third match was even worse.

    But I did win a match and I will be brewing as well… trying to figure out a mono black discard or a green/black discard/morbid deck… Kind of upset that the last set doesn’t have werewolves or any really solid zombies. But I understand the theme… but damn WotC for putting angels in my gothic! 🙂

    • Yea the problem with brews is that you have to tightly meta it to stand a chance which means a lot of trial and error and a lot of fine tuning.

      Best of luck on your discard deck! If caverns of souls is as good as people are saying, ramp decks would be the top dog and a discard deck with Depise and Appetite for Brains is well situated to beat them.

    looking at your deck, some duel color lands that produce green mana might be helpful to increase the likely hood of playing a bird on turn one or two, and rampant growth

    • Yep the deck definitely needs some duals. The deck list above is really just to test out the theory and I usually slowly refine it after playtesting. I really need to get around to proxy it and see if it is viable.
