You'd really want to abuse the counters more for ramp with cards such as Mage-Ring Network or Rushwood Grove. Beastmaster Ascension may also be worth a look.

Even though you don't have a lot of creatures have you ever thought of Beastmaster Ascension it's a great three drop and can easily be proliferated to 7. That way atraxa will still come out as a 9/9 even if she dies.

Wonderful suggestions both of you! I appreciate very much the thorough suggestions


I am switching Craterhoof Behemoth wih Siege Behemoth as soon as I can find him in my local stores, wonderful suggestion.

I love Blasphemous Act but I'll have to find another way to fit it in. Dragons and dragon-based decks are heavy in my group. So I still want my two anti-flying tech cards. After your suggestion, I switched out Sandwurm Convergence with the cheaper Gravity Well.

Praetor's Counsel is perfect suggestion for this deck. The other two do not fit my game plan as well, but I'd love to pull back all my wolves near end game.

Decimate My lord I had no idea this existed. Instant-add !


Super important point on the draw power. Having more options in hand will make this deck a beast! Lifecrafter's Bestiary I actually had in here intially, but after thinking about it I don't think it plays well with how I want to play the deck. Harmonize I did not include initially, but I love the idea. It's beneficial that I have cards to let me cast it with flash.

Curse of Stalked Prey I LOVE the flavour. If I wasn't hurting for space this would be an instant add-in. As is, I fear it may be too single-use and slow-building for me to consider (Compared to Craterhoof Behemoth and Beastmaster Ascension right) . Wolfir Silverheart seems to single-use as well without means to bounce him for further soulbonding

Sorry but the best answer is Edric, Spymaster of Trest.

Critical mass of 1 mana fliers / unblockables, good rampy 1 drops like Burgeoning, Exploration, Sakura-Tribe Scout, etc. Pair it with good 1 mana control like Swan Song, Rapid Hybridization, Nature's Claim, even wrath stoppers like Invasive Surgery.

You will have to have a few wincons above 1 mana like Beastmaster Ascension, Overrun effects, even the new Throne of the God-Pharaoh does a lot of work when you are swinging all out every turn.

Super aggressive, draws tons of cards, resilient with the right counterspells, and explosive when it comes to finishing out thr game. One of my favorite commanders period, but definitely the best commander for a one drops deck.

List if interested (hasn't been updated with some new cards, but-) Edric's Weenie Horde

tonybaker26: My strategy with this deck? Basically just bribe everyone everyone with the prospect of free cards until I draw Beastmaster Ascension, Triumph of the Hordes, or Notorious Throng, then proceed to go ham sammich on their asses.

Intangible Virtue? Tolsimir Wolfblood? Second Harvest? Secure the Wastes? Beastmaster Ascension? Growing Ranks? Hydra Broodmaster? And finally, Panharmonicon. These are all cards I run in my own Trostani deck, and they are fantastic in it. Take a look, and see what you think of them.

Looks super fun!

Quick thought on the Beastmaster Ascension suggestion: I use it on my Saproling deck and it's usually quite effective. Thing is, I never cast it T3 - it usually comes out as a finisher on turn 5 or 6 when I already have 7+ creatures ready to attack, not giving the opponent a chance to prepare against it (because as you said, having it sitting there one or more turns without it doing anything is pretty bad!). Whether or not to run it ultimately comes down to how often you find yourself with 7+ creatures already in play, and whether or not at that point the added 28 points of damage would help you win the game or be redundant.

PS: Personally, I like Goblin Arsonist more than Mogg Fanatic, but both have their uses. Perhaps try out a split and see which one you're getting the most out of?

Animation Module Complete the combo and ride a cascade of energy, +1/+1s, and Servos.

Beastmaster Ascension Crazy buff is crazy.

Gemstone Mine More any color mana land to proliferate.

Gonti's Aether Heart Blink your non-charge artifacts with Brago/Venser; crack for an extra turn when you need it.

Meren of Clan Nel Toth whom you considered, is miles better as a value engine vs Skullbriar the growing dumb beater.

Merciless Eviction Because you are in color and nuking all Planeswalkers is often important.

Peema Aether-Seer 3 Energy Min, typically higher ETB; Occasionally pull utility dudes/generals into unfavorable combat

Tezzeret the Seeker Untap clasp/engine/modules/rocks; tutor out modules and Panharmonicon.

Vivid Marsh The four vivid lands in color are probably better here than using tri-lands.

Whispersilk Cloak Archangel, Atraxa, Basker, Brago, Roc
