Balthor the Stout Discussion

Great. I made a list a while back that was in theme with the mines of Moria,
Demon of Death's Gate is a potential balrog too.
Balthor the Stout is another Gimli option.

Don't run enough barbarians for Balthor the Stout and the play group that I play with have a lot of tribal decks so Coat of Arms isn't viable and with Door of Destinies I've found that the deck seems to win with minimal creatures on the board or it's a 1v1 from a pod of 4 so the damage needed to win is minimal

In commander, lordy's additional costs are negligible at worst and helpful at best and in grixis colors it's not even hard to get commander damage the token he drops. Even ignoring the deck, he's a regenerating 10/4 for 4 mana. Zurgo, may seem weak, but in effect you never have to pay commander tax, you just dash again and play it from your hand. Pairing him with instant buffs like Titan's Strength and I've managed commander damage wins on turn 4 with little effort.
I would have to say Balthor the Stout is pretty useless, his ability only effects 31 cards in existence, of which 7 (not including himself) can't be played because they aren't mono red or came out in an un-set. He's mono red so he has no access to Xenograft like abilities. There's even a better commander in the list of cards he can effect, Kamahl, Pit Fighter, Who by the way it's even quoted on balthor's card.

Great deck idea, I've always loved dwarves since odyssey. I just have two suggestions. I would definitely find a way to mainboard the 4 Lightning Bolts, because you have no interaction with the opponent's board other than their lands, and no other direct damage, just attacking. Also, I would suggest Heart Wolf instead of Balthor the Stout, because you don't seem to have any barbarians. But definite +1 for the deck, guy, well done :D
