Crush Underfoot Discussion

SharpRaptor on Brion Stoutarm (Giants)

Part 2

Enchantments

Ajani's Mantra - Too slow. Way too little impact. We don't have triggers off life gaining a lot so we can replace this.

Rise of the Hobgoblins - We aren't really interested in the effect towards our gameplan. The first strike can be nice. But not the best thing we can be looking at.

Scourge of the Nobilis - We don't have anything that we really benefit from putting this on. Brion already has lifeling, and his sacrifice ability is based on the sacrificed creatures power so we don't want to pump him either. Then putting it on a creature we want to sacrifice is setting ourselves up to loose out on cards by 2 for 1nning ourselves. There are some other enchantments that we may play that recur themselves but we will come back to those later.

Maybe Enchantments

Searing Meditation - I really want to like this card but it seems rather low damage for mana investment keeping 2 up all the time. However if we end up with a lot of ways to gain lots of individual triggers. Then this could be worth it.

Instants

A couple of these are just upgrade them but keep the same idea. These ones are all effects that we want but probably not this exact version. And we might want more of them.

Condemn can be replaced with Swords to Plowshares (or maybe just have both)

Crush Underfoot could be Fall of the Hammer . It means that a non-giant can use it, though you lose out on the minor ability to search up a removal spell with your Giant Harbinger

Shatter could be Abrade as it gives more flexibility. Or one of the ones that include white that can hit enchantments too.

Others should probably just be replaced, maybe with more version of the above effect.

Pact of the Titan - The free 4/4 with flash is pretty good. But unlikely to win you the game with it. It effectively costs you 5 mana for it and because it doesn't have Haste it isn't winning you the game before you have to pay for it.

Soul's Grace - A card that only gains you life in one burst is usually not worth it. If it did something else too then maybe. But not just life gain.

Sorceries

Giant's Ire - Just isn't worth it really. It doesn't do enough for the mana.

Maybe Sorceries

Feudkiller's Verdict - While this effectively could be a 6 mana 5/5 that gains you 10 life on enter. Which isn't bad, it could still sometimes be stuck in hand unable to make the 5/5. So while this can be decent, It can be bad.

Lands

We can afford to cut 2 or 3. I usually recommend 36-7 with around 10 nonland mana sources. Because this runs a lot of big guys, we want to consistantly hit our mana so we want 37.

Artifacts

Armillary Sphere - This doesn't actually ramp us it helps us hit out land drops though which is a good thing. However there are a couple of other cards which do similar while being repeatable or having other effects that go with it

Paradise Plume - We want mana ramp, this is possibly just too slow though. Rocks that tap for 1 colour are usually 2 mana. Our 4 mana rocks tap for multiple mana usually.

This is great! Crush Underfoot is great removal, and Thundercloud Shaman is very good at killing off opposing blockers.

Red white giants might be better, as you get things like Feudkiller's Verdict and Hundred-Handed One. Also Sunrise Sovereign is really strong. Crush Underfoot is really good too. If you search for giants in the lorwyn block you will find some underused gems for sure. Also Palisade Giant will let you cast Thundercloud Shaman without killing off your mana helpers.

Savage Beating, Feudkiller's Verdict, Mother of Runes, Tenza, Godo's Maul, Bastion Protector, Tectonic Rift, Crush Underfoot, Bearer of the Heavens, Quarry Colossus, Kalemne's Captain, Sigarda's Aid would be good good options to consider; but they all depend on how tribal you want your deck to be or how commander centered you want it to play as. A deck like this was the first one I made, a giant exclusive tribal deck. But that was my playstyle and likes, it all depends on how you like your game to run!

I offer you guys a challenge. Below will be a board state set up, and it is your job to beat your opponent this turn. I'll start off with an easy one at first. If you guys like this I'll gladly post more. So, can you figure it out?

Your opponent has 6 life left. On his side of the board he has 5 1/1 Goblin tokens and has a Ghostly Prison in play. He is completely tapped out, and has no cards in his hand.

You have a Blind-Spot Giant , a face down Ainok Survivalist and a Expedition Map in play. You have 2 swamps, 3 Forest, and 3 mountains

It is the start of your turn and you draw a Beseech the Queen. In your hand you have Crush Underfoot, Akoum Boulderfoot and a Ahn-Crop Crasher.

In your library you have Bloodfire Colossus , Bloodshot Cyclops , Furystoke Giant , Grave Titan, Inferno Titan , Ondu Giant , Primeval Titan, Rakdos Charm, Loamdragger Giant , Heartwood Giant , Forbidden Orchard, Doom Blade, Doomgape , Awaken the Bear , Craterhoof Behemoth, Smoldering Spires, 5 mountains, 3 swamps, and 4 Forests.

It is possible for you to win this turn, but how?

Haldarious, whoops that was a brainfart on my end, thanks for catching me! I meant Soul's Fire not Crush Underfoot.

So I was heavily considering adding Hazoret's Monument, but Ruby Medallion has one less mana cost, so I'll likely go with that. Quicksilver Amulet might work as well, but I'll have to save up a little bit if I wanna buy a few of those. Thanks for the suggestions!

Crush Underfoot won't be an auto-win because it can only target creatures. :/

Anyway, might Quicksilver Amulet work? Also Ruby Medallion may be something to consider for more Giant cheapening.

This deck has the potential to be pretty devastating. With the commander you have I would go a bit more tribal than you have it right now. More giants more fun.

Boldwyr Intimidator For 1 red mana target creature cant block him, so he is a free hit if your opponent has only one creature out.

Giant Harbinger Giant creature that is a giant tutor, go grab Stinkdrinker Daredevil and your giants are cheaper.

Hammerfist Giant 4 damage is great for getting rid of a lot of opponents creatures, very good for going against token decks. However you would need to equip him with something that raises his toughness or he would kill himself.

Pharagax Giant Either he comes into the battlefield as a 5/5 or he does 5 damage to each opponent, its a win win for you.

Sentinel of the Eternal Watch Tough creature with vigilance with a control element.

Bearer of the Heavens A little more costly to get out but when you do he is a 10/10 that people dont want to get rid of.

I would also suggest things to make your giants attack more or do more damage.

Fury of the Horde Extra attack phase and cheap if you have 2 red cards in your hand you dont want to use.

Warstorm Surge Any creature coming in under your control deals damage to your opponent.

Relentless Assault Again an extra attack phase for relatively cheap.

Savage Beating 5 mana to give your creatures double strike or have an extra combat phase OR 7 mana to do both effectively making your giants do quadruple the amount of damage. This card is a late game winner.

Seize the Day Another card to give you an extra combat phase.

Waves of Aggression Extra combat phase that you can play again from the graveyard with the extra cost of discarding a land.

World at War Extra combat phase that you can use again next turn without paying its mana cost.

Berserkers' Onslaught Gives your giants double strike.

Rage Reflection Gives double strike.

Fireshrieker Equipment that gives a creature double strike.

Tribal cards are good if you want to go this route as well.

Feudkiller's Verdict Gain 10 life and get a 5/5 giant token if you have more life than your opponent.

Crush Underfoot A good way of having your big giants do more damage.

Giant's Ire Deals damage and as long as you have a giant out you draw a card.

Cards I would take out.

Godo, Bandit Warlord While it is a good card, youre not getting its benefit. If you attack and use his ability you cant untap anything because you have no samurai, and Stonehewer Giant takes care of getting equipment.

Magus of the Wheel You should be able to use anything in your hand so discarding your hand isnt all that great.

Oreskos Explorer With the amount of ramp you already have I cant see you being able to use this much.

Apostle's Blessing Gods Willing Shelter You dont need all the protection and replacing it with damage amplifiers will help win.
