Baru, Fist of Krosa Discussion

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.

Rzepkanut on Starting Commander for beginner

Someone that rewards ramping like Omnath, Locus of Rage or Baru, Fist of Krosa. Ramping is one of the simplest forms of card and board advantage. Having extra resources to play cards makes easier and more interesting games for beginners too. Tokens are fun. Building up big powerful boards is fun too. Tutors are not easy to teach to beginners, so i would using avoid too many. Basically ramp decks are my suggestion.

@Mmelton: You can take a tier 3 grim-grin, corpse born or tier 3 Nekusar, the Mindrazer and put up a fight in the higher tiers (not tier 1, but there is a chance of winning against tier 1.5 decks).

A Tier 4 deck cannot beat a tier 2.5+ deck: Queen Marchesa (tier 2.5) vs Angus Mackenzie (tier 4) vs Baru, Fist of Krosa (tier 4) vs [insert another tier 4 deck here], the queen machesa deck should win.

Tier 5 cannot beat any non tier 4 tier 4.5 deck. Gwafa will not be winning in a pod that has azusa, doran, and kaalia (which are all considered here as tier 3). Kazuul, Cliff Tyrant won't win in a game facing daxos meletis, daxos the returned, and ezuri (all of which are tier 3).

If you want to create a seperate list solely for casual games, then do so.

I think Baru, Fist of Krosa should be reevaluated, here is my deck list,

Baru Mono Green EDH

Commander / EDH Pinrohn


My deck is limited based on the cards I can afford but I feel like Baru has just as much consistency as many of the other Tier 3 mono green commanders.

i like the combo, but i think other landfall would be more helpful than a lot of the creatures

a really good one would be Baru, Fist of Krosa

Bramblesnap would help use them all etb for a beater right away

Tireless Trackerfor infinite draw/huge beater,

Retreat to Kazandu infinite life/huge beater,

Timber Protector help protect everything,\

Embodiment of Insight would help cash in immediately with bigger threats

i would take out Wall of Tanglecord,Overgrown Battlement,Predator Ooze and Tukatongue Thallid

NP :)

I am not too sure about Baru, Fist of Krosa, since you don't always draw land to play, or search for it... but I'm not sure what to suggest instead either. Something that turns out to be a (mostly) vanilla 4/4 for 5 mana is not particularly impressive though.

This deck could maybe be inspirational: Stomping the ground, since it's also monogreen and has a bit of a devotion-strategy to push through damage.

Maybe Faith of the Devoted, Archfiend of Ifnir Wandering Champion, Baru, Fist of Krosa or Wolf of Devil's Breach but I may be only saying silly things, I'm not accustomed to discard, aggresive decks.
