Bloodspore Thrinax Discussion
1 week ago
so this ended up a way longer list than i expected. anyway if i were building trostani i'd probably include these but commander decks are largly personal and often just whatever cards are easily available, so use whatever you think would work.
Growing Rites of Itlimoc ; crazy mana acceleration when its transformed.
Evolutionary Leap; trade in your tokens for other stuff.
Mitotic Slime; a lot of bodies.
Verdant Force; makes a lot of tokens if left alone for even one round of turns.
Twilight Drover; unsure about this in trostani, its been good in my ghave deck and flyers are useful.
Hydra Broodmaster; hella big army.
Terastodon; a big boy that blows up some stuff, you can even blow up your lands to make creatures in a pinch.
Mentor of the Meek; some card draw.
Rhox Faithmender; double life.
Aetherflux Reservoir; one way to kill your opponents with your high life total.
Eldrazi Monument; should be easy enough to sac one token per turn to keep.
Overrun; another overwhelming stampede.
again, i'm not saying run exactly these cards, but hopefully some of them look useful to you.

Okay soooo here goes something! FIrst off, some extra card advantage/protection for your favorite creatures could come in the forms of Inspiring Call and Heroic Intervention. On to lands things! Honestly, you don't need lands like Unknown Shores, because paying that extra one mana just to get the color you need is usually worse than just having a basic. The exception to this is a card by the name of Opal Palace, which also give you additional +1/+1 counters on your general for each time it has been cast from the command zone. Moving on from there, cards like Crop Rotation and Voyaging Satyr are decent, but only really shine when there's a specific nonbasic land you want to work with (namely, the ludicrously expensive Gaea's Cradle, which I won't recommend because of its rather prohibitive monetary cost). Crop Rotation miiiight be worth keeping, that's up to you, but as a whole, the deck needs a little more mana ramp. Cards like Skyshroud Claim, Cultivate, and Kodama's Reach are frequently played cards in every green EDH deck. Additionally, since your deck focuses on large creatures, a ramp spell such as Traverse the Outlands may find a good home here. Next, I don't think Broodhatch Nantuko and Hornet's Nest are good here, as they require being dealt damage before spawning tokens. Cards like Sprout Swarm are good for building an army, as are bigger creatures such as your Favorite Mycoloth, Dragon Broodmother, and Dragonlair Spider. Cards that are lackluster here include Arlinn Kord, Gruul Charm, Spellbreaker Behemoth, and Barrage of Boulders. Spellbreaker doesn't make any of your creatures uncounterable, as they all have less than 4 power while being cast, Gruul Charm has three very lackluster modes, and Barrage is only useful for removing blockers.
From your maybeboard, I'd suggest looking to find room for Kalonian Hydra, Dragonlair Spider, Vastwood Hydra, Doubling Season, and Blasphemous Act. Other possible cards that you could try out from the maybeboard are Bloodspore Thrinax, Ivy Lane Denizen, Oracle of Mul Daya, Burgeoning, Fires of Yavimaya, and Hammer of Purphoros.Speaking of Purphoros, God of the Forge, he would be incredible here, and I highly recommend adding him to the deck.That's my feedback, any questions, don't hesitate to ask! Happy brewing! Also, feel free to take all of my suggestions with a grain of salt :)

I'd look to add the following cards: Herald of Secret Streams, Chasm Skulker, Prime Speaker Zegana, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Odric, Lunarch Marshal, Bloodspore Thrinax, As Foretold, and Heroic Intervention

Crowned Ceratok isn't all that great of a trample outlet, Bramblewood Paragon and Tuskguard Captain are both better options. Bloodspore Thrinax doesn't really have all that many targets to devour, so maybe there are better options for buffs. All the creatures that are basically just vanilla with scavenge are kind of mediocre. I think you also have a lot of really slow cards, like the rings and Obsessive Skinner. Getting only one counter per turn is in my opinion too weak to justify a card slot, though the green ring might make the cut given that it gives trample, a very important ability. However, maybe I'm way off base with that analysis and Skullbriar retaining counters makes all these seemingly low-impact cards relevant.
You should consider adding some cards that benefit off of the high power that Skullbriar will accumulate. Soul's Majesty and Rishkar's Expertise both let you draw tons of cards, while Traverse the Outlands lets you ramp out of control. Garruk, Primal Hunter does the same thing, while also providing token production if you have no creatures to draw off of. Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord is a strong threat that lets you fling your creatures at all your opponents. Selvala, Heart of the Wilds gives you ramp and card draw all in one cheap creature. Greater Good, Momentous Fall, and Life's Legacy are all ways to sacrifice your stuff in response to removal for enormous card draw.
As for ways to buff up Skullbriar, Evolutionary Escalation and Kalonian Hydra are both great high impact cards to generate tons of counters. Verdant Confluence is another great card that can either give you counters, ramp, or recur your permanents.

This looks like a fine deck, though maybe it could use some more card-draw. Personally, I would go for Cold-Eyed Selkie, Bident of Thassa or Rhystic Study. In terms of nice counter-adding cards, you could look into Master Biomancer or even Bloodspore Thrinax. Naturally, Doubling Season could greatly enhance your deck, but this requires quite an investment.
In case you need any more ideas, I am using a counter deck myself: Got them countered. Look into it if you like (and leave a comment/like if you want to). Cheers!

How's it going, man? I am also fairly new to this site. Just finished uploading the last of my personal decks. I am a long time player of mtg however, and come here with 15+ years experience under my belt.
At first glance, I see two main issues. One is that you don't have enough draw power, and the second is that you literally have zero ways to protect your creatures. Here are the changes I would suggest:
-3 Abundance (Too mana intensive and does NOT count as card draw)
-3 Burgeoning (Doesn't flow well with the deck, imo)
-1 Hardened Scales (Only gives +1 counter/trigger)
-3 Spreading Seas (NO reason whatsoever for this to be in the deck, imo)
-2 Spellbook (Not enough constant draw to warrant)
-2 Venser's Journal (Not enough constant draw to warrant)
-2 Bloodspore Thrinax (Doesn't fit into the theme well enough)
-3 Champion of Lambholt (Costs too much mana, doesn't fit the theme)
-2 Island (New mana curve is not high enough to warrant 22 lands, imo)
+2 Horizon Chimera (Fits the theme, gives protection from flying threats)
+4 Cartouche of Knowledge (Fits the theme, added evasion offers a win con)
+4 Mizzium Skin (A must-have source of protection)
Overall these changes would add a bit more consistency to the deck by increasing your # of playsets. It would increase the amount of protection you have from "kill cards", since you were previously at zero. And I beleive at the end of the day it would increase your card draw, (fitting the theme of the deck). I hope these suggestions help, let me know what you think!

Would Bloodspore Thrinax strike your fancy? Makes for some tough critters on your side :) Personally I love using Buried Alive. Combined with Meren, it's an incredibly cheap tutor, just watch out for graveyard hate :)
In case you're interested in some more ideas on what to use with Meren, feel free to check out my Meren deck (and please leave some comments, would appreciate it!).
