Creakwood Liege Discussion

Just as a clarification the +1/+1 and cost reduction don’t work the way you describe them. A card having both colors will not cause the ability to work twice. Fall of the Gavel will cost 2UW not 1UW. And prismot (assuming you change the wording to alter his color and not just his identity) will only be a 4/5 not a 5/6.

See Nightscape Familiar is basically what you have and only reduces Izzet cards by 1. Creakwood Liege on the other hand makes golgari creatures +2/+2. Now you could reward the ability to something like “costs 1 less for each color it shares with Prismot/prismots identity.” Or something of that nature.

Hello, I know I am a bit late to the party, but after reading your primer, I was wondering what happened to Creakwood Liege

I legit built this in Boza's new thread; The RPG Game

Braux, Deadgame's Champion

Legendary Creature - Minotaur Warrior

Trample, Reach

When Braux, Deadgame's Champion enters the battlefield you may have it fight any number of target creatures you don't control. If he survives, put two +1/+1 counters on it for each creature it destroyed.

"I've fell Angels, Sphinx, Demons, Dragons and Hydra. Take your shot."

5/7


I'd like to expand on him in here. See, there's a lot of anthems you have access to within Jund. Bad Moon , Creakwood Liege , Rageblood Shaman , Felhide Petrifier , Paragon of Eternal Wilds , Boartusk Liege , Ashenmoor Liege , Eldrazi Monument , etc. You can get him to insane levels of P/T. You also can make him Indestructible with spells such as Heroic Intervention or if you use Brass Squire to attach an artifact such as Darksteel Plate onto him in response to the Fight trigger. If nothing else, he's a supremely powerful boardwipe if you want to just pick off a bunch of things for or mana, which honestly isn't that bad. You maintain your own boardstate while destroying key pieces of everyone else's.

Since I sort of literally copy/pasta'd this, I'm reissuing the wildcard challenge.

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.

I find EDH Hogaak fascinating as a deck.

I don't see Grafted Exoskeleton on your list actually, though you mentioned it in the comments. There's also Glistening Oil if you haven't considered it.

Birthing Pod + Hogaak --> Craterhoof is a combo not on here which is pretty clean, if not infinite.

I've been playing with Carrion and testing Path of Discovery / Beastmaster Ascension . I also feel like if literally any deck can make Awaken the Erstwhile viable, it's this one.

Was surprised to see no Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord , Creakwood Liege , or Izoni, Thousand-Eyed , but I haven't played this deck much, just theorycrafted.

Cards you may not have heard of that combo with Hogaak: Ooze Garden , Monkey Cage (lol), and Reign of the Pit .

Hey austintayshus thanks for the tips much appreciated! I'll definately try to fit in more draw thats solid advice. in my meta there arent many fliers to stop Thrummingbird until later in the game and I feel like proliferate is a really strong ability espescialy if I already have counters on the whole army via things like Mikaeus, the Lunarch or Bloodspore Thrinax . This is also why I wanted to keep Roalesk, Apex Hybrid but I think you are right about that one. The Creakwood Liege is a tough one its the first single I bought so although you are right I think I'll keep him cuz he doesnt have a spot in any other deck and I get joy throwing him down! I have a Mentor of the Meek laying around so hes in! Consecrated Sphinx is a bit out of the budget for this deck although it is bonkers. I feel like Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest has a lot of synergy in this deck so I'll play test once I complete the list but keep him under tight scrutinity. I always worry about getting rid of evasion but maybe I'll get rid of the Bramblewood Paragon for a Bred for the Hunt .

Anyways cheers thanks for the help you've caused solid reflection!

Looks like a fun strategy, but I have a few suggestions.

First, you need more lands. Looks like you have 6 open spots atm, definitely fill those with lands, preferably shock lands like Overgrown Tomb and Hallowed Fountain . I think you would be okay with 34-38 lands. And a few basic lands is fine in a 4-color deck.

Second, you'll need more card draw effects, by my count you only have 6 (7 if you count Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, which I really don't). I'd recommend recurrable effects like Beast Whisperer and Harvester of Souls and Consecrated Sphinx and Mentor of the Meek . About 10 card draw effects is a good number for most decks.

I TOTALLY understand getting too attached to certain cards and I also hate cutting cards, but some cards that I would recommend cutting are

Hope this helps! +1
