Baru, Fist of Krosa

Legendary Creature — Human Druid

Whenever a Forest enters the battlefield, green creatures you control get +1/+1 and gain trample until end of turn.

Grandeur - Discard another card named Baru, Fist of Krosa: Put an X/X green Wurm creature token into play, where X is the number of lands you control.

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

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.

Ive got news friend you aren't going to be switching to a less mean deck by using Prossh. Or Marath for that matter, as both are extremely powerful commanders that enable crazy combo shenanigans in every build I've ever seen. It sounds like you have intentions to build a more casual deck, but switching to those commanders might not solve the "mean deck" problem.

Baru, Fist of Krosa is my favorite token commander currently. All the deck is filled with are token generating cards and ramp spells. I love playing it personally its quite fun, and it's pretty powerful too. But its gameplan is super fair, and its not likely going to be called mean ever.

My deck:

Baru, Token Fister

1v1 Commander* Rzepkanut


Not that I don't love a good mean deck, my Prossh deck is extremely harsh ;)

Hello, I saw your post on reddit (am only lurking there) and checked out your deck.

It looks pretty nice :)

I would suggest cutting Winds of Qal Sisma and Merciless Resolve as they seem your least impactfull cards (I don't think you need to prevent combat damage and you seem to have plenty of card advantage already, even then there's better ones than the Resolve).

A card I would suggest is Baru, Fist of Krosa as it works great when you return your cards from your graveyard. And maybe Reprocess could replace Merciless Resolve?

Squandered Resources is also great with the frog.

Feel free to check out my take on the froggo (it's also pretty casual): my take on Gitrog

possible additions could be World Shaper or Bear Umbra. Baru, Fist of Krosa would give your commander trample and +x/+x depending on how many forests you can play per turn. Nissa, Voice of Zendikar gives you draw power and life gain. Rishkar's Expertise is some more decent draw power with your commander out. You have a decent amount of cards that interact with lands entering but not a lot of ways to keep your hand full of lands to abuse the cards. Hunter's Insight will let you draw if your commander hits

Chandrian on The Gitrog Makes Landfall

1 year ago

I just finished my own list for a landfall Gitrog deck (altough I didn't want to take the dredge or infinite combo way). Some cards I might suggest:

  • Sword of the Animist to ensure landfall triggers
  • Reprocess allows you to draw a lot of cards by saccing lands, while also bringing them back if you have World Shaper or Splendid Reclamation at the ready
  • Baru, Fist of Krosa can pump your team pretty heavily when recurring your lands from the graveyard and also gives trample (this only works for your green creatures, note that opponents playing forests also pump your team)
  • I would suggest Evolving Wilds and/or Terramorphic Expanse because you get 2 landfall triggers out of it, plus you also get to draw when Gitrog is in play
  • Squandered Resources is an awesome cards for a deck like this, however it is maybe out of your budget

If you want I can post my list (or you can find it through my profile)

WarlordWiggles on Reki, the History of Kamigawa

Things missing from this deck:Nylea, God of the Hunt: Not actually missing, I just don't have the card in hand yet to add into the list. I'd likely replace the non-creature mana accelerant (Overgrowth) to fit her in.

Staff of Domination: Missing because it creates infinite combos with Karametra's Acolyte. This deck isn't meant to have infinite loops, though there may be some unintentional loops I don't know about yet, and this one is incredibly abusive. I play decks with those types of loops against groups that are prepared.

Things that could potentially be added:Paradox Engine: Another way to create the kind of loop that Staff of Domination and Karametra's Acolyte are, it also is incredibly powerful with the way the deck actually plays.

Verdeloth the Ancient: Combos well with Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Rishkar, Peema Renegade as a light mana engine. Also works well with Cryptolith Rite and plays into a more token based version of the deck.

Avenger of Zendikar: Same deal as verdeloth, but also triggers for double the power from Baru, Fist of Krosa as well.

Desert Twister: Could replace Krosan Grip if needed, but Split Second is a power mechanic.

Thrun, the Last Troll: If this deck takes a turn towards more Voltron type play then this is your troll. Great to just hook stuff up on and smash face.

Planar Bridge: Potentially very powerful but it directly puts the card in play it does not cast the card. This means there's no triggered replacement with Reki.

Cultivate and the like: Intentionally missing because most of our mana accelerants are creature based and we want to put Reki into play as fast as possible. Great if going the Baru/Avenger of Zendikar plan.
