Caustic Crawler Discussion
8 months ago
Not really sure what I can suggest to make the deck better. You'd ultimately be taking something away, and you've got a solid layout here. +1, sorry I can't help more mate. I could make suggestions such as Dragonmaster Outcast and Caustic Crawler , both of which I run in mine and have great success with, but again I think you're solid as it is.

Caustic Crawler has won me so many games. Gets past indestructible and regeneration. You can easily hit -10/-10 spread as you choose if you play with it right.
Seriously, try it out. It's so powerful with Windgrace.

AkrosTheClear, I'll have to take the time and put it on here but sure.
It's nothing really too different from the original deck. I swapped out something like 11 cards I think?
I don't play competitively or nothing. Just with my friends and at the LGS.
I do tend to build decks that can come off as "unfair" at times, but really it's no different than someone building a deck that locks you out of a game, or does an infinite win combo.
I honestly didn't expect to get Caustic Crawler with three lands at the same time via Xenagos. Had it not been for that, I probably would have lost as his board state was way bigger than mine.
He flooded it with tons of 1/1s, 1/2s, and 2/2s as I stated, I've played that deck about a dozen times now and his whole thing revolvers around Craterhoof Behemoth. There are other wincons in the deck, of course, but that's the main strategy.
So knowing this, I needed to do one of two things: Clear the board, and take out Predator Ooze because at that time I had Omnath, Avenger, a small assortment of tokens, and like one other creature.
That PO was eating up my board. Every turn he attacked I was forced to either take more and more damage, or forced to block and make it bigger.
So from a strategic standpoint, I had no choice. I had to snuff out PO and seized the opportunity with landfall.
As for the second turn, a quick boardwipe using the mechanics of the lands in conjunction with Windgrace and Crawler is actually rather ingenious and there's no two ways about that.
So sure, maybe I had a bug up my butt, but you've gotta admit when a deck comes together and pulls you from the brink of defeat, it's a great feeling.

My opponent scooped during my Lord Windgrace game yesterday and I'd just like to share because it was absolutely insane.
So context first: I had a T1 Sol Ring and ended up bringing out Gruul Turf and Temple of the False God rather early. I had a small assortment of creatures out, but nothing quite so impactful. However, I was able to bring out an Avenger of Zendikar which net me 5x 0/1 Plant tokens and an Omnath, Locus of Rage along with Xenagos, the Reveler and Lord Windgrace whom was up to a decent amount.
It got to my turn:
- Xenagos, the Reveler is sitting at 6
- Lord Windgrace is sitting at 9
- Plant tokens are currently 3/4 from Avenger of Zendikar
- 4x Elemental tokens from Omnath, Locus of Rage
My opponent's biggest threat was a 9/9 Predator Ooze which he was relentlessly assaulting me with. I was not wanting to attack because I was building up a creature base to try and overwhelm him first. He had a lot of small creatures and I had nothing with trample. I felt that if I full-assaulted, he would just let it all through and swing for game. Plus, anything he blocks with PO will just make it stronger, meaning more damage to me later.
His typical strategy is to bring out a ton of small creatures and get Craterhoof Behemoth out and swing for game. So I knew I had to act quick because I felt like he was setting up for that win.
So it gets back to me and I feel like the clock is ticking away. I decide that I no longer need Xenagos' ramp so I opt to crack off his ultimate.
I end up bringing out the best possible assortment of cards.
So right there I see I am about to finally nail this Predator Ooze to the F-ing wall. I tell him I'm about to kill that SOB, and he's like "How?! It has indestructible!" -- "Yeah, but -1/-1 isn't damage ;)"
So since Caustic Crawler entered with those three lands, something immediately gets -3/-3. Pin that on PO.
- Keeping Track:
- 3x Lands entered this turn
- Predator Ooze is at -3/-3 (Recall, he's a 9/9)
- Plant Tokens are currently at 6/7
- Currently have 7x Elemental Tokens
- 5x Lands entered
- Predator Ooze is -5/-5
- Plants are now 8/9
- 9x Elementals
He gets mad, but I'm not done yet ;)
- 7x Lands entered
- Predator Ooze is at -7/-7
- Plants are at 10/11
- 11x Elemental Tokens
- 9x Lands entered
- Predator Ooze is -9/-9 and dies to SBA
- Plants are at 12/13
- 13 Elemental Tokens
Now at this point my opponent is furious and begins untapping their things, thinking I am done with my turn.
"WOAH WOAH WOAH, I'm still in my main phase!"
"OH FOR F-S SAKE!" ... "Longest turn in Jund history, much?"
So, I play my land for the turn. Lol a Swamp.
- 10x lands entered this turn
- -1/-1 to something else, I don't recall.
- Plants are 13/14
- 14x Elemental tokens
I tap for , play a Burnished Hart and end my turn.
So he taps out, brings out some more creatures - no Craterhoof Behemoth, and passes reluctantly.
I end up topdecking Stitch Together and laugh like an idiot.
Forest for my land for the turn.
- 1x land entered this turn
- -1/-1 from Caustic Crawler
- Plants are 14/15
- 15x Elemental tokens
Then I sac Burnished Hart for for 2x Forests.
- 3x lands entered
- -3/-3 in total from Caustic Crawler, all of which is taking out some of his smaller guys. Remember, I'm trying to clear the board of small creatures so that in the event of a Craterhoof Behemoth, the impact isn't so strong.
- Plants are now 16/17
- 17x Elemental tokens
At this point my opponent is fuming. He begins to swear under his breath and scoop.
"Woah, what are you doing?!" I laugh.
Haha yeah. Good times. Lol.

I got my opponent to scoop tonight, actually. Lol.
He was playing Green Stompy and I was playing a fixed NV.
I had out Caustic Crawler and Rampaging Baloths with a stack of 8 or 9 tokens. Those were literally my only creatures. He kept trying his best to play stuff, but I kept killing with removal. During the turn I had four lands enter, I took out his Yisan, the Wanderer Bard who had a Divinity Counter on it via That Which Was Taken. Really pissed him off super bad because he was up to Yisan's 4th use.
The next turn, when my lands all untapped, I played Crash of Rhino Beetles (The third creature I played all game, mind you) and he scooped, lmao.

-1/-1 counters cannot be stopped by regeneration.
Regeneration means to put a regen shield on this permanent. When this permanent is dealt damage greater than its toughness or is destroyed by a spell or effect, instead you remove the regeneration shield and all damage marked on this permanent, tap it and remove it from combat.
None of this interacts in any way with -1/-1, so regeneration is not useful versus Caustic Crawler.
