Baru, Fist of Krosa Discussion

Rzepkanut on Mono green

I would consider Baru, Fist of Krosa, he's great in a deck with a ton of forests and green creatures. The grandeur text doesn't work but he makes ramp spells into overruns, which is pretty good. I built a deck with him as the commander once it was cool.

My deck:

Baru, Token Fister

SynergyBuild on Ashaya is REAALLLLLY good

Magus of the Candelabra (easy combo, all you need is any effect that taps for like a few more mana), Illusionist's Bracers with Arbor Elf or a bunch of other untappers. Nissa, Vital Force and Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip are value from top to bottom.

Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger doubles your creature mana too now, and was pretty decent before at least ;)

Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar, Ulvenwald Hydra, Oran-Rief Hydra, Molimo, Maro-Sorcerer, Baru, Fist of Krosa, Sylvan Advocate, etc. all let you convert Ashaya's text into damage, and lots of it.

Deserted Temple is sorta an untapper now xD, and Hunting Wilds and Rude Awakening got a lot more powerful.

Vesuva and Thespian's Stage are now mono-green Clones

Legendary Creature - Goblin


Tribunal - whenever any player attacks, if red sources you control have dealt more damage than sources that player controls, create X 1/1 red goblin creature tokens equal to the difference.


create a card with grandeur, there have only been 5 cards printed with this ability that I could find. they are Baru, Fist of Krosa, Korlash, Heir to Blackblade, Linessa, Zephyr Mage, Oriss, Samite Guardian and Tarox Bladewing.

Your post says green, but these commanders are mostly multicolored. If you want a REAL green experience you need to go mono color.

Yisan is a powerful and well known one, and Gargos is probably good too, but I vote for Baru, Fist of Krosa. Hes a powerful but lesser known general and a BLAST to play. You get to keep making tokens and ramping until you win with a mega huge overrun attack.

Its actually a good commander deck and I think it's only underplayed because you can't trigger the grandeur ability on him in EDH. Which isn't relevant in my opinion as the remaining abilities are still great, but people get scared off by extra text on cards for some reason.

I haven't updated the list I used to play (see below) since I sold out of MTGO like a year ago, but it was one of my favorites to play at the time.

Have you considered Baru, Fist of Krosa ? He gives a mini-overrun whenever a forest enters, which would presumably be rather often, especially with Azusa and friends.

dbpunk idk, i mean, i'd date Octom!

Korth, Eternal Beacon

Legendary Land Planeswalker- Shapeshifter

Korth, Eternal Beacon, may be your commander.

Take another turn after this turn. Exile Korth, Eternal Beacon, then return it to the battlefield under an opponent's control.

+2Look at the top card of your library. If its a land, planeswalker, or creature with converted mana cost greater than the number of cards in your hand, you may reveal it and put it into your hand.

-12You get an emblem with "Whenever a player casts a spell, you may pay . If you do, you gain control of that spell and may choose new targets."


Create a commander that allows you to have more than 1 copy of a card in your deck. Perhaps any number of itself in the deck? And an effect like Arashi, the Sky Asunder or Baru, Fist of Krosa

Rzepkanut on Looking for a token commander

1 year ago

Izoni, Thousand-Eyed is one of the only legendary creatures that will leave behind a whole token army that can actually attack. Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder is another similar option but Izoni has green so its probably just strictly better. I have no Izoni deck to show off currently, I'm just hyped about the card.

However my favorite token deck that I actually made and often play is Baru, Fist of Krosa. Its all just token making and ramp and the commander provides the overrun for the win. It's acually very effective, and the commander is relatively unknown which is fun.
