Nemesis on GRUUL SMASH!!!

1 month ago

Ruric Thar, the Unbowed , Samut, Voice of Dissent , Borborygmos , & Tahngarth, First Mate could all be good smash gruul commanders.

If you're thinking of more of a token theme, Grand Warlord Radha , Thromok the Insatiable , & Ulasht, the Hate Seed are all good options.

I would think the reason is simply that Big G didn't offer much as far as a theme to build the deck around.

Using Ruric as the face card makes the direction of the deck clear, and easier to put together with the available card pool than say Borborygmos Enraged who is cool and unique, but whose mechanic isn't really supported by his tribe. Original Borborygmos is simply a big beater which is great for gruul, but it doesn't offer much deck building direction.

I was thinking the same thing. I thought for sure today would be a gruul spotlight day.

Don't get my wrong the new enchantment that gives all your nontokens riot and uncounterable might as well be rare, freaking love that card. But I still want my splashy fun cards! The new Domri should be interesting but im more curious about who the new legend is, I was never a fan of Borborygmos so im kinda hoping he's gone.

Okay. Apologies, this comment is going to be even longer than the last one.

Your entire Recursion folder is not great. Cauldron of Souls is good, but the rest seem very weak. How much removal is there in your meta?

Borborygmos has a nice effect but is also 7 mana.

Death's Presence is fine, but once again, pretty mana-costly. There are better payoffs for that cost.

Oona's Blackguard is not super good. It forces discards, yeah, but not enough. This deck has too few creatures to really make use of it.

Panharmonicon is a confusing inclusion. You have EIGHT creatures with ETB effects. Eight. That is not enough to justify panharmonicon.

Rage Forger's only use outside a deck that's going wide (which yours is not) is as planeswalker removal. And even then, it'll probably take two attack steps.

Solidarity of Heroes is suboptimal. How many creatures do you usually hit with it? Let's assume four if it's cast late-game as your only spell of the turn. It doubles for things' counters, which is probably... 12, total?? Not great.

Lifeblood Hydra is BAD. To understand why, I'll walk you up the curve. At 4 mana, it's a 1/1 that gives you 1 card and 1 life. At 5 mana it's a 2/2 that gives you 2 cards and 2 life. At 6 mana it's a 3/3 that gives you 3 cards and 3 life. The first time I see this being worth the casting cost is at NINE MANA, and by the time you have nine mana, there are better things to cast.

Why are you running Vraska, Golgari Queen? You don't have very many aristocrat synergies, I don't see where sacrificing creatures at sorcery speed would ever help.

World at War isn't that great here. I mean it's good, but not as good as a lot of other things you could play at 5 mana.

Violent Ultimatum is hilariously bad for its mana cost. Its variable use is nice, but SEVEN MANA to destroy 3 permanents? Pass.

Undercity Plague really doesn't do a lot. It's great against one opponent but it doesn't have a lot of impact on the board as a whole.

Triskelion and Walking Ballista are all pretty lame if they're not being used as combo pieces. Triskelion is much worse than Ballista.

Balefire Dragon is good, but it doesn't synergize with the rest of your deck at all.

Oh yeah, and your deck has 109 cards in it, if I read correctly.

If the main theme of the deck is +1/+1 counters, I would recommend Archangel of Thune, Shalai, Voice of Plenty, Mayael's Aria, Cradle of Vitality, Master Biomancer, and/or the original Borborygmos.

Cisarzim's Judgement

Legendary Sorcery

Destroy up to six permanents. They can't be regenerated.

You may still cast your Commander for the rest of the game and it's casting cost is permanently reduced to it's converted mana cost.

Epic (For the rest of the game, you can't cast spells. At the beginning of each of your upkeeps, copy this spell except for its epic ability.)

Few remember Cisarzim, Lord of Chaos. Even fewer wish to.


Cisarzim, Lord of Chaos was the original guild leader of Gruul Clans and is Borborygmos' father.

Make him.

SynergyBuild on [Primer] - Ad Nauseam Combo [[Procellam Legit]]

1 year ago

Just saw some insane gameplay with the deck, they had Phrexian Unlife out, it was turn four. Lotus Bloom came off of suspend, but they had no Ad Nauseam, they didn't have a land drop either. I thought they would Spoils of the Vault for Ad Nauseam, since they had two of those and a Serum Visions, but instead they named Laboratory Maniac, then Borborygmos, cast the Laboratory Maniac, and with 1 mana left from the bloom the Serum Visions won the game!
