Craterhoof Behemoth Discussion

SueMe on Hogaak: My Favorite (Infinite) Combo Deck

23 hours ago

Great suggestions, thanks!

Okay, you got me. I was focusing so much on the combo aspect of this deck, that I (for some reason) took out Grafted Exoskeleton , which was a mistake. I need multiple ways of winning. Not just one.

Birthing Pod + Craterhoof Behemoth seems solid. I'll try to find some space for Craterhoof. I personally like Birthing Pod + Razaketh, the Foulblooded .

You're right about the Awaken the Erstwhile .

The reason I haven't been putting in cards like Izoni, Thousand-Eyed , Creakwood Liege or even Monkey Cage , is they're on the high CMC side, and I wasn't really trying to go too deep into a token build. I feel like for Izoni in particular, she wouldn't actually give me that many tokens. A lot of the time, there's only 3 or 4 creatures in my graveyard.

I particularly like your Ooze Garden suggestion. 2-mana 8/8s seem pretty good.

I still need to do some more testing to see if cards like Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord or The Gitrog Monster are worth it in the deck.

Flagellum on Marwyn, the Elven Mother

1 day ago

I don't think Marwyn gets the credit she deserves. What's also nice is that the deck has multiple different ways to keep going without Marwyn. A couple suggestions:

Argothian Elder : combos with Wirewood Lodge and big mana producing lands (I.e. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun , or a land with Elvish Guidance and 1 other elf)

Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip: aka baby Gaea's Cradle . See above.

Elvish Guidance : see above. Also works well with Arbor Elf if used on a Forest .

Dwynen's Elite : cheap multiple elves to pump Marwyn quickly. Not needed but is pure value for 2 CMC. You get two 1/1 elves and Marwyn gets two +1/+1 counters. Also works well for bouncing back to your hand.

Craterhoof Behemoth / Finale of Devastation : aggro finishers

With infinite Mana:

Squall Line : another Hurricane but at instant speed.

Assault Formation : seems like a very odd inclusion. However, with the infinite or near infinite amounts of mana produced it becomes an insane pump spell for all our elves.

Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip: draws out all your creatures.

Temur Sabertooth : lets you reuse any ETB effects you may have. Combos with Wirewood Symbiote see below:

Temur Sabertooth + Wirewood Symbiote + 1 Big Mana Tap Elf + 1 Random Elf to Bounce:

  1. Tap the Big Mana Tap Elf for big mana.
  2. Use Symbiote to untap the Big Mana Tap Elf and bounce the Random Elf.
  3. Tap the Big Mana Tap Elf for big mana again.
  4. Use Temur to bounce the Symbiote to your hand.
  5. Recast the Random Elf and the Symbiote then rinse and repeat.

If you want any more ideas you can look at my deck here: Nature AND Nurture with Marwyn

JKRice I re-did some of the math and Craterhoof Behemoth does actually do better than End-Raze Forerunners in case 4 that I have listed above. End-raze has 18 trample damage on board, while Craterhoof has 26 trample damage (if there are 2 other creatures on the board already). Thanks for the feedback!

JKRice I hadn't really considered Craterhoof Behemoth ... It may be a better version of the End-Raze Forerunners . I will definitely play around with it but it is much more expensive, haha

Would Craterhoof Behemoth be better than the end raze forerunners?

Very nice list! I am missing a concrete win-con however. Like a Craterhoof Behemoth or an Avenger of Zendikar

Homelessguy I guess main reason I don't run Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger is because I run it in my Lazav, Dimir Mastermind deck.. Ulamog is great, but I like to have different win-cons in my decks (this is why I also didn't include Craterhoof Behemoth , as he is in my Ghave, Guru of Spores deck).

FunBun on Muldrotha, the „Fun“ in „Funeral“ *Primer*

3 weeks ago

I played my first game today with my Muldrotha deck against a Ghave, Guru of Spores and a Lord Windgrace deck. I was well under way to kill the Ghave player (18 Commander damage), having lost only 4 life from my own sources. The Ghave player was slow due to lack of mana, but had a quick Doubling Season in play. Eventually he had a few tokens and ambushed me with Craterhoof Behemoth and I died. It was a cool experience to play though, and I was really happy to have Tamiyo, Collector of Tales against the Ghave player's Grave Pact :D

Thanks for the inspiration, Pikobyte :)
