Budget Magic: Cultivator Huatli Tokens (Standard)

1028 ratings | 64758 views
This week we're heading to Standard to play a card that I think is one of the biggest sleepers in the format: Cultivator of Blades! While Cultivator of Blades has been overshadowed by other, similar five-drops in Angel of Invention and Regal Caracal, the addition of Huatli, Radiant Champion to Standard with the release of Rivals of Ixalan means that Cultivator suddenly has a ton of potential. The basic idea of the deck is simple: we play all of the best token producers in green and white, eventually we stick a Cultivator of Blades, play a Hutali, Radiant Champion to -1 on the Cultivator of Blades, make all of our random tokens huge and win the game in one attack! Of course, if this plan doesn't work we can also just ultimate Huatli, Radiant Champion and bury our opponent is a sea of card advantage. Can we make Cultivator of Blades work in Standard, backed by [[Huatli, Radiant Champion? Let's find out! Oh, one quick thing before we get to the videos. My headset died last week, so part of this episode was recorded with my backup microphone, which sounds a little bit different. Don't worry, the replacement headset has arrived, and this time I've got a backup headset too, so things will be back to normal moving forward! ◼ This episode of Budget Magic is brought to you by CardKingdom.

At 36:40 he left the regal in despite saying to take it out
Cole Silva (11 months ago)
Appeal//Authority and Anointed Procession fit nicely imo
Fenrick Cheng (11 months ago)
Play maybe run some copies of Shanna
I think this deck goes good with Oath of Ajani and Song of Freyalise. Mass tokens, then mass counters and ramp to get faster to Huatli.
Peacock Knight (1 year ago)
1118 damage on that last huatli/cultivator's rush if opponent taked it all. blocking it's only 743assuming opponent blocks the sovereign

is this the crazy cat lady deck?
lancer4224130 (1 year ago)
I mean, I get it, you're doing a commentary. But would you talk like that in real life with someone sitting across from you? Example."I, uh, play a forest tapped an' swin' in for ten damage. I pass thuh turn. Po N-ant." It's obnoxious. You're a great player and a wonderful source of entertainment otherwise. Please, don't think this is personal or otherwise. This is just something that makes me cringe after watching over 20 of your videos. Notice the habit, change the method.
lancer4224130 (1 year ago)
PO N-ant, High squeak. deep voice calm and soothing, high prepubescent shrill. PO N-ant. Fuckign change your language. Use other nouns. Use pronouns. Please dont make me play this on mute.

"Best deck in Standard, what?" Ok Seth, calm down. It's not THAT good

Why can't I get the morons like what Seth gets in game 1?

What is the general line of play vs Grixis Energy?
SlipperyGirlMag (1 year ago)
Thanks for the deck tech. I made changes to the shell to thopers and servos only and went 4 - 0 at my lgs's standard showdown. Thanks.
Would tillonali's summoner work here?
Typhon121 (1 year ago)
Hey Seth if you see this what do you think about putting in Ornathopters to attack OVER your opponent' creatures?
End-er_ (1 year ago)
Omg I'm loving this deck. Tokens are love. Tokens are life.

Should have added Ghalta for luls

Coulda triple Huatli -1'd the end of that first game, would have loved to see the numbers
Knobhead (1 year ago)
Huatli would probably also work quite well in an oketra's monument deck.
Matteo Balestrieri (1 year ago)
36:59 that 61 sideboard deck lol (regal caracal wasn't sideboarded out)
MTGGoldfish (1 year ago)
I think that was probably a MTGO bug :(
Logan (1 year ago)
Is anointed procession not in b/c its too expensive or just didn’t make the cut?
MTGGoldfish (1 year ago)
Being expensive is part of it, but I don't have it in the non-budget build either because we already have so many four-drops. Not sure we can play Anointed Procession, Huatli and Sram's Expertise in the same deck and still have a function curve (at least not four copies of each).
Daniel Daniels (1 year ago)
Haven't watched yet but want to say 2 things. 1-Man crush on Seth and his infectious awesomeness endures. 2-Multiple Cultivators make for some berserk damage totals since they stack. My favourite deck is my +1/+1 counters/tokens deck that ends with a cultivator attack. On the odd occasions of 2-4 Cultivators in play i break out my maniacal Seth laugh and swing for a billion.
Quint Ashburn (1 year ago)
Would Anointed Procession improve this deck? Maybe a 2 of?
Daniel Sexton (1 year ago)
ITS A FIVE MANA 1/1. That's why people are staying away from it.
Jared Thomson (1 year ago)
That was so sweet, Seth. Super cool deck.
Ross Balch (1 year ago)
I wonder how this would have gone in a competitive league rather than the 2 player queue though.
Frostycraft (1 year ago)
Leave it to Seth to think drawing a card is better than surviving! (After the first match)
obesechicken13 (1 year ago)
I felt cultivator was only good when winning or on a board stall when I tried it in magic duels. Bad when behind. But I mostly tested it against the AI. Seems pretty impressive in your games. And I think a lot of your opponents didn't have removal for it which was weird.
AHunter (1 year ago)
Just so you know,the ai in duels improve his draws when it's losing,may take this factor in consideration. The card isn't amazing,but it fit nicely in a token shell

hutli is like aura so under rated but if right built so powerfull
ambroise beaucaire (1 year ago)
I've made this deck some time ago but never try it becose I didn't have the card and it's seems a little bit to janky but you gave me confidence in it https://deckstats.net/decks/98076/915926-g-w-pummeler-token?saved=1&lng=fr
Melissa Grenier (1 year ago)
The fatal push play might not have been wrong. They could've been stuck on 3 lands and worried they wouldn't get to fumigate in time. In that case they drew land land. They also could have drawn fumigate off the top at the last minute.
Melissa Grenier (1 year ago)
Just how bad a mull to 5 on the play is depends on the match up. In a bad match up it can be practically unwinnable but in a good match up you often have a decent chance.
AHunter (1 year ago)
Well.. I'm sorry but imo a good hand at mull 5 has a better chance at winning any (non grindy) matchup,bad or not than a average 7.

I love your content, but sometimes you keep really bad hands and lose because you are afraid to mulligan.
MTGGoldfish (1 year ago)
We mulliganed to five one game! (but yes, you're probably right).
Damia Alvarez (1 year ago)
What about a (WGB thallid) deck for agains the odds abusing the new huatli? or even a WG, and cut the black.
MTGGoldfish (1 year ago)
Thalid's could be fun for against the odds, they are just soooo slow.

Bruno Petrucci (1 year ago)
Hey Seth, I was just wondering: how do you think this deck would fair against the more powerful decks in the meta? From the top 5 decks you only played Red, so I was wondering how it’d do against UB, Grixis, Constrictor etc since I’m interested in getting this deck. Thanks!
MTGGoldfish (1 year ago)
Good question! We'll have to play it some more.
Ben Anderson (1 year ago)
what happened to the old mic seth? This new one is so much worse I hate to say.
Ben Anderson (1 year ago)
sweet excited to hear your voice in high res tonight then! lol
MTGGoldfish (1 year ago)
The old one is back! The "new one" is actually my backup, because my normal one broke, but the replacement is here.

Please let us know how the modifications go! :D

Why no appeal // authority in this deck?
Matthew Knaup (1 year ago)
OMG, Seth said no to drawing cards!!!!
Wesley Perry (1 year ago)
Angel of invention maybe? I know it's not budget, I just mean if it wasn't budget, would you play angel?
Wesley Perry (1 year ago)
Love these deck types. Are there any upgrades you'd suggest?
malloott (1 year ago)
Game 1: opponent punts on multiple occasions making the win allot more easy then normally, although it seems like Seth would have won anyway. Game 2: Opponent with some pretty bad misplays again, playing cards that should not be played in constructed standard. Game 3: Opponent tries to glorybringer a untapped 4/4 pride sovereign, and dies shortly after. Again a game won by opponents mistakes... A pattern emerging?
Joaquin Ludewig (1 year ago)
i never understood why no one ever played cultivator with GPG
Derek Boettcher (1 year ago)
I had tried making GB GPG exploring cultivator a thing but couldn't seem to make it competitive enough
Stephen Cole (1 year ago)
Ohh, a Standard match? I thought this channel had become a modern channel?
Allison Minerly (1 year ago)
This deck definitely needs some evasion so Huatli minus actually means something other than chumps.
TakeoutPrism (1 year ago)
In that first game 1, should have negged huatli, played a huatli, negged her, then played huatli number 3 and negged for super overkill.

The MTGO prices move so fast on these videos.  Deck is already up almost 50%
Tom Jackal (1 year ago)
yeah I've seen Cultivator do some amazing things. It's just that there are more efficient ways to pump your team. not to the same extent, obviously but still
Tom Jackal (1 year ago)
is there a non-token way to use this Huatli?
James S (1 year ago)
*mulls into an amazing 5* UGH, really deck? Literally can't win no chance no way no how. Ok? Lol.
LkBanny (1 year ago)
Wow I knew that Huatli Cats was cool but why did no one show me Cultivator earlier? The only thing that bugs me about that video is your attitude against the WB Vampries, it's pretty shitty and that's not the first time I notice it. You kept a hand with only lands and 4-drops but complained later about Sanctum Seeker. "the one good vampire in standard"... I'm not even sure if that is even Sanctum Seeker, just Mulligan such a hand and get your salt-level down. If you win you get ecstatic and wildly laughing but while loosing your mood is terrible. Game 2 he had Trespassers Curse which single-handedly can shut your deck down and you have I think the ONLY answer in your hand. But that's not it: after he plays Vona which could deal with Binding you naturally top-deck another one. I'd say just imagine your reaction if that would happen to you but we can pretty much see the reaction at 40:40 when he plays Golden Demise. I do not mean to offend you or anything but it's just something, it's just something you could watch out for. Beeing this ecstatic as you win is impolite when you can't take a loss. It's basically what Kripparian (well known Hearthstone Player) does all the time
LkBanny (1 year ago)
Trespassers Curse wouldn't win him the game single-handedly but would give him a good amount of pressure and estatic and wild are maybe the wrong words(although he gets really loud sometimes) but that is more because of my bad english. Otherwise I would need some clearification where else I may have exaggerated
about 99 ninjas (1 year ago)
LkBanny i think youre over exaggerating a lot guy.
Sam Baker (1 year ago)
cultivator is great.  I goof around with a standard elf deck using cultivator as a finisher.
Anthony Dunfee (1 year ago)
Why has no one done this before? The combo cards are from opposite ends of Standard. Cultivator being from Kaladesh and Huatli being from Rivals of Ixalan. I certainly would have forgotten about Cultivator. Great games though! Love your content.
Will Jones (1 year ago)
Ethan Glaeser (1 year ago)
You couldn't go with "Huatli Radiant Cultivator" or "Huatli of Blades", you had to pick the boring title...

I tried to build a deck almost the same didn’t have all the pieces and my personal life is just a little to busy to play Magic at this time but things are getting into place again

Ensnaring Bridge in Standard Seth your crazy!!! Lol if Bridge was in Standard I would definitely be playing a 0 card hand deck lol

Bro the nickname saffron olive...just wondering you trying to be cute or something? Cut that out
bradwhiteuk (1 year ago)
Can't complain when you lose to W/B Vampires. It's a better, more resilient go-wide deck.
bradwhiteuk (1 year ago)
MTGGoldfish That + they make almost as many creatures but theirs are bigger as they have lords/anthems. I do think token strategies in general are good at the moment though, with most decks favouring 1-for-1 removal over sweepers.
MTGGoldfish (1 year ago)
I don't know if it's better, but it's certainly true that Sanctum Seeker matchups up well with our deck.
TheRedGauntlet (1 year ago)
I see that Seth still hasn't learned how to spell Yahenni :/
UTUB2kholle (1 year ago)
I'd like to see an upgraded modern version of this deck. Seems decent enough, and the go wide strategy seems pretty decent in the current meta ! :)
fineadvice (1 year ago)
Hey Seth, I was wondering if you've done a brewer's minute on the best route to make a budget deck? I remember the video on how to go making a deck (top down vs bottom up), but with a budget deck I would like your process on it as well. Like do you start with the main 60 and focus on putting most of the budget there, then move to sideboard, or do you construct a non-budget version of a deck (full 75) then proceed to find budget alternatives, etc, things like that?
Rodrigo S. Pereira (1 year ago)
About "I don't know why no one did this before": Cultivator of Blades was never a relevant card because it matched poorly to Harnessed Lightning, which was ubiquitous until recently. Any well timed removal or counter spell may wreck your game. You did lose to 3 Metallic Rebuke in a row, so I'd expect you to lose hard to any dedicated counter spell deck. I'm surprised I'm not more excited for a GW deck with Sram's Expertise. It's kinda my jam!

Do people hate you after they play against your epic decks?
MTGGoldfish (1 year ago)
I hope not!
mikhael hall (1 year ago)
Cultivator with God pharaoh's gift or scarab god seems super strong for maybe an against the odds or a much a brew. You bring back the cultivator with the God, it has 4 power, you make the servos then when you can swing with everything scarab god is now a 9/9, the 2 servos become 5/5's and the cultivator is a 4/4 that's 24 power swinging at them.
mikhael hall (1 year ago)
gustavo morales Why though? Why rely on your opponent to do your dirty work? That's asking for disappointment when you can set it up yourself and do it. Make it a Sultai deck where you mill yourself and set stuff up like normal good pharaoh's gift but you use scarab god and start reanimating your stuff as well as having the option to do your opponents. I hate relying on my opponents to do things though.
gustavo morales (1 year ago)
True, but Scarab God decks are usually focused on resurecting stuff on the opponents graveyard. I haven't seen people actively dumping creatures on the graveyard on SG decks.
mikhael hall (1 year ago)
gustavo morales That's why I said "when you can." If you use scarab god ability on their end step then you're allowed to attack with the servos on your turn.
gustavo morales (1 year ago)
the servos do not get haste
John Ashe (1 year ago)
Fish vision: Seth complains like the world is unfair because the walking ballista is/will kill half his board. Reality: It shot down 4 of his 19 creatures. On the SAME turn seth swings in and he actually killed 7 out of 9 of the ballista players creatures out of desperation to not die on the spot. Seth also ends that turn 33 to 4 life in his favor. I don't get it.
MTGGoldfish (1 year ago)
In my defense, it was four Cats, not just Servos :)
TheCloud0103 (1 year ago)
I want this deck so bad now :o
Austin Robertson (1 year ago)
36:58 "Gonna go down a regal Caracal for 1 ixalans binding" *magic online puts the caracal back in the deck instead and now has 61 cards*
Sean Mulligan (1 year ago)
It wasn't a bug. It was not dragging it far enough into the sideboard spot for it to take it.
MTGGoldfish (1 year ago)
I didn't realize that. Maybe we got hit by the infamous sideboarding bug!
