DrukenReaps on Grothama The Great and unpopular ...

2 weeks ago

So I feel like Grothama, All-Devouring isn't as popular as it should be. I bring up some of the silly you can do in my In His Belly deck.

I realize the downside of maybe giving your opponents cards is pretty bad but you can mitigate it with things like Multani, Maro-Sorcerer and Sage of Ancient Lore  Flip.

Give Grothama lifelink and you gain 10 life for every fight! Really dumb if you give your stuff indestructible with something like Eldrazi Monument.

You can use things like Conjurer's Closet and Temur Sabertooth so you don't have to kill Grothama to draw cards off of him yourself.

Perhaps even scarier is that Grothama bursts out of the ground on turn 5 as a 10/8. Just a little pump and he two shots anyone out of the game.

Some other silly tricks exist too, if you are interested check out my deck :) Yes I'm doing this mostly to plug my deck but I also think it is odd how little popularity something with so many ways to mess with the game has.

On that final note feel free to bring up your own commanders that you think should be more popular and some of the dirty tricks you can do with them.
