Craterhoof Behemoth Discussion

snotice on Yisan, the Spoony Bard

1 day ago

Several suggestions based on my knowledge of the game:

Arbor Colossus : air killer when Monstrous plus he helps with the devotion count (+3).

Nylea, God of the Hunt : you do have several creatures that give your creatures trample, but not many have a pump up ability. Also it's indestructible, so that is always a plus.

Polukranos, World Eater : works good to have something that can kill off small creatures & get bigger in the process.

Primeval Bounty : It's one of my favorites, having 3 unique abilities that will work great with Yisan, the Wanderer Bard .

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx : a Legendary devotion land. enough said.

Bramblecrush : helps against planeswalkers & other annoying non-creatures.

Voyaging Satyr : another mana dork is always good & works good with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx .

Kalonian Tusker : 3/3 for 2 green, which is helpful towards your devotion.

Silklash Spider : Solves your flying problem.

Bow of Nylea : with all the mana you will have, doesn't hurt to have deathtouch when attacking.

Terra Stomper : an 8/8 for 6 mana with 3 green to the devotion & can't be countered. Great card to add that isn't too expensive.

Expensive cards:

Nissa, Worldwaker : one planeswalker that is worth the investment if your going to have an EDH deck.

Kalonian Hydra : a 4/4 that doubles his counters each time he attacks. ($7.93)

Asceticism : hexproof & regeneration for 2 mana. it's worth the investment.

Courser of Kruphix : greatest way to get lands out of the way, while gaining life, & on the important things.

Craterhoof Behemoth : a beast they better kill the second it comes out because he's that nasty. ($10.47)

Chord of Calling : one of the stronger cards out there to help Yisan, the Wanderer Bard with getting out those big boys on the battlefield. ($9.50 for the new version, $22.32 if it is the Ravnica version.

That's just a start.

241543903 on Gods of Theros: Challenge!

1 day ago

Hey guys! Sorry for very long inactivity. Today I was literally keyboardzerking to finish this challenge, but thanks to Murphy's Laws my PC (and already made write-ups) is broken. And to accomplish that bad luck, thanks to the renovation made in my "skyscraper", I'm not going to have internet in 1-2 weeks. After a talk with my friend, I've decided to give other matches short descriptions of matches I made on PC and make a full write-up of the final, finishing this challenge. Hope you enjoy it!

brokendwarf's I've got recursion out the ass VS MisterRoach Blood Tithe for Power

GAME 1: While at Turn 5 Recursion had no board presence, Tithe had Phyrexian Obliterator and animated Erebos, who quickly dropped Recursion's health to 0.

GAME 2: Tithe got great luck, resulting in T4 Crypt Ghast , T5 Nirkana Revenant , resulting in 19/19 Vampire going through Recursions defenses.

Blood Tithe won 2-0

rkreutz's Race to the top, evolution style VS rkreutz's Boros Legion, Attack!

GAME 1: T5: Murkfiend Liege and T6 Progenitor Mimic quickly oppressed Boros, who had very slow start, hitting third land at Turn 5.

GAME 2: While Boros took the threats on board fast, Race did the same, stalling the game. About 15th turn, Boros somehow managed the Aggravated Assault + Sword of Feast and Famine combo, finally killing Race.

GAME 3: Again, gmae was pretty stalled, but Race managed to dig the Invert the Skies , swinging for lethal.

Race won 2-1

Boza's Karametra, Primal Genesis VS Boza's Forge Victory in God Challenge

GAME 1: Karametra dropped T7 (maybe T8) Primal Surge , putting 60% of his library into the game, while Purphoros was low on fuel for his damage machine.

GAME 2: While Karametra was desperately draw the win-con, Forge slowly drained her health, finally leading to her Death.

GAME 3: Like in Game 1, Purphoros didn't draw enough fuel for his death machine, finally leading him to doom by meeting Craterhoof Behemoth .

Karametra won 2-1

Dekord's Death by Lightning Bolt VS Rayenous's Heliod's Last Man Standing

GAME 1: While Last Man's wrath effects did nothing to Bolt, Bolt's counterspells were very effective versus his other cards, stalling the game until Keranos didn't kill Last Man.

GAME 2: The game was stalled again, but rather than be killed by Keranos, Last Man was killed by AEtherling and Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre thanks to Jace, Architect of Thought .

Bolt wins 2-0

hi Sheriff_K try to use some brackets 2x[card 2x] around the cardnames ;) and your thoughts are good but it seems that you want to play monogreendevotion this deck is more like elvesdevotion it is a little different - concrete:

Burning-Tree Emissary is a great devotion creature but this deck should be more flexible by running elves + Ezuri, Renegade Leader + Elvish Archdruid

Wistful Selkie dito

Abundant Growth draws a card and landenchantment BUT the land doesn't produce two mana with it - just other colors ... Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl is way better -> but it seems to be good too ! and it is already in the decklist i suppose:D

Voyaging Satyr ok but no elf (like Kiora's Follower too)

Magus of the Candelabra you need to pay mana to untapp so he is bad earlygame, it seems to be a winmore lategame creature

Nissa, Worldwaker is a great card! well she just untapps Forest (not Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx :/) but she untapps 4 of them with 5cmc! so you got her for pretty low manacosts AND your forest might be worth more mana with Utopia Sprawl --- but i like her other ability even more! turning any land (even non-forest) into a 4/4 creature is just awesome boardpresence ! and if you manage to turn an untapped land you didnt played this turn into the 4/4 it can attack immideatly-> to conclude nissa isn't a must have for this deck but if you manage to put her on board she is so powerfull that your openent got to finish her off quickly or he is just a dead man (maybe you just want to go with another finisher like another Craterhoof Behemoth )

We'll see what get's printed. Maybe something like Craterhoof Behemoth could alter this deck a lot. Still playing it with proxy, so haven't put it against much of the meta. It get's there enough and is hella fun.

Wow, thanks for the advice. I have tried to cut some land and go down to 16 and 17, but it is just makes the chance of having to mulligan to big, so I have decided to stay at 18, but the idea of Garruk, Caller of Beasts and Craterhoof Behemoth is something I have been thinking about for a long time. I do not have the money for planeswalkers at the moment so it will have to be later, but definitely something I'm thinking about. Grafdigger's Cage is also needed, but creatures from the graveyard usually is not that big a problem, so I will save that for later. Thanks!

I think you should cut a land. Because you only need one/two lands when your playing. I also think you should cut two Utopia Sprawl . And is also because almost all your elves makes so much mana should cut two of. Maybe you could add some Craterhoof Behemoth , Nissa Revane and Garruk, Caller of Beasts .
