Decimate Discussion

Hi! Great deck. May I suggest a few changes? Cut Savage Stomp and Pounce for any more versatile removal spell such as Chaos Warp or Decimate . Check out my version of Gishath, it may give you a few ideas and you might be able to give me some too. Cheers!

Thanks for the advice. I do plan on adding some more dual colored lands, as well as more land searches such as Ash Barrens , Terramorphic Expanse , Evolving Wilds , and Myriad Landscape , but hadn't been able to get any of them yet. I do like the Aggravated Assault combo with Savage Ventmaw and Grand Warlord Radha . I also like the idea of swapping out Demolish for Beast Within and/or Hull Breach . Decimate seems a little less useful due to requiring the opponent to have all 4 types of cards on the battlefield.

First and foremost, here are some suggestions for improving your manabase: Rootbound Crag , Blighted Woodland , Kazandu Refuge , Haven of the Spirit Dragon , Gruul Guildgate , Rugged Highlands , Command Tower , Temple of Abandon , Sheltered Thicket , Cinder Glade , Game Trail , and Kessig Wolf Run . I know that's a lot of cards just dedicated to mana, but I think the Haven and Kessig will pull both surely pull their weight.

Rishkar's Expertise generates great card advantage while you control a big dragon. Harmonize is another strong draw spell in green. Cultivate and Kodama's Reach are cards just like Nissa's Pilgrimage , and they help you accelerate your game.

I'm not sure how you feel about infinite combos, but Aggravated Assault and Savage Ventmaw is an option. Grand Warlord Radha has the potential to achieve the same.

I'd definitely recommend cutting Demolish (although that gremlin is quite cute). You could replace it with cards such as Beast Within , Aftershock , Hull Breach , and/or Decimate .

Finally, Dragonstorm is a fun card that allows you to find whatever dragon you might want/need. It's nowhere near as good as Tooth and Nail , but it is a fun and more budget-friendly option for the time being.

Happy Brewing!

greyninja on Atarka world render edh deck ...

Uhhhh this is a really open ended question haha. You should browse the various gruul decks on here, as well as edhrec.com for ideas

I'm running Omnath, Locus of Rage and it's really fun. He takes advantage of something most decks do anyway: ramp. He also punishes boardwipes with his Lightning Bolt ability. Sometimes I'll flood the board and swing all out, then cast my own boardwipe to burn my opponent(s) for the final blow

Xenagos, God of Revels is another commander I've used in the past. His strategy pushes more towards "going tall" with a few big creatures rather than omnath who wants to "go wide" with a pile of creatures. Xenagos is one of the best options too since he's harder to remove than normal creatures.

There's the usual shenanigans like Avenger of Zendikar and Craterhoof Behemoth paired with Tooth and Nail for a surprise win. I like Triumph of the Hordes too for an insta win

There's combat tricks:
Aggravated Assault + Savage Ventmaw
Aggravated Assault + Bear Umbra + creature
Aggravated Assault + Nature's Will + creature
Aggravated Assault + Sword of Feast and Famine + creature
Aggravated Assault + Grand Warlord Radha + creatures
Aggravated Assault + Selvala, Heart of the Wilds + creature with power 7 or greater
Hellkite Charger + Bear Umbra
Hellkite Charger + Nature's Will
Hellkite Charger + Sword of Feast and Famine
Hellkite Charger + Grand Warlord Radha + creatures

Gruul also has a ton of control options. Beast Within , Terastodon , Woodfall Primus , Decimate , Balefire Dragon , Blasphemous Act , Reclamation Sage , Sunder Shaman , Deus of Calamity , etc etc

Have fun! I hope you'll take a moment to check out and upvote a couple of my decks! Cheers!

IamSuperman825 on Omnath and friends

Ok--So here are a couple suggestions on lands--staples--if you will, that I include with this style deck/commander etc that I mentioned briefly above.

Fetchlands are great with Omnath and all of your creatures with Landfall like Avenger of Zendikar More the merrier. Some of the fetches have been reprinted, some haven't. So depending on the one you want, there could be a wide range in price. There are Budget equivalents like Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse and Mountain Valley there's a couple others too. These traditionally aren't as good because they only get Basic lands and they come into play tapped. However, they get the job done on Landfall triggers should you need an option while you're waiting to upgrade to that Wooded Foothills this one, luckily, has been reprinted in Khans block I believe. It wouldn't be a bad idea to look at a few others while we were at it though. Windswept Heath might be good Blighted Woodland and Naya Panorama better or cheaper options for sure.

Color Balance: Nothing sucks more than drawing a bunch of one color mana--so lets even it out some with lands that tap for either color.
Rootbound Crag , Stomping Ground , Reflecting Pool , Command Tower , Raging Ravine Utility Lands: Maximize your land. Make it work for you.
Kessig Wolf Run , Rogue's Passage , Thespian's Stage , Miren, the Moaning Well , Temple of the False God , Skarrg, the Rage Pits
There are others--Tribal specific that are good-- Contested Cliffs for example would be good if you had more beasts or Primal Beyond if you had more Elementals.

Now-- I had thought about it some more since I commented earlier today and I have a few more suggestions. I'm just going to suggest the cards, I won't offer cuts at this time, because I'm not looking to change your deck completely, just give you some thoughts if you were wanting to tap into your Commander more or just be cool fun R/G beats deck etc. I'll leave that up to you. Happy to help in any way though.

Synergy: There are a few other cards that would work well with Omnath and I'll list here.
Solemn Simulacrum The Lonely Robot draws a card and gets you a land = Landfall trigger/ramp.
Scapeshift Cast this when you have Omnath and it could be awesome. Cast it with Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle in play, and thats a lot of damage. Prismatic Omen Doesn't care what land you get--just saying.
Craterhoof Behemoth takes all those shiney new Elementals and/or Plant tokens from Avenger of Zendikar and makes them Big stompy.
Warstorm Surge I'll just leave this here.
Skyshroud Claim Yeah, in play.


About this one particular card:
Burst Lightning Ok, I do think you should probably swap this card with something that straight kills something gives you a little more versatility. Perhaps something like Atarka's Command or Decimate or Skullcrack or Beast Within or Banefire

Other EDH Staples and Protection:
Chromatic Lantern
Sol Ring
Quicksilver Amulet
Swiftfoot Boots
Lightning Greaves
Chord of Calling
Taiga
Some other cards to save towards I guess.

I hope this helps. I rambled.

Kogarashi on card: Possibility Storm and Friends ...

It should be noted also that if you let Possibility Storm exile Decimate , then Eye of the Storm can't copy it, but you'll still get copies of all the other spells in the Eye.

It's also important to note that either Expertise spell may end up adding more triggers on top of things since they let you cast spells from hand, and for that you'll have to refer to the above info.

Kogarashi on card: Possibility Storm and Friends ...

Given only the cards you have named, I'm assuming you cast nothing relevant with the extra cast from the two Expertise spells.

When you cast Decimate , Eye of the Storm , Sunbird's Invocation , Swarm Intelligence , Possibility Storm , and cascade all trigger at the same time because they all trigger from you casting the spell. You control all four triggers, so you can put them on the stack in whatever order you please, and that will change what happens next.

Just looking at what each trigger does if it resolves first....

  • Eye of the Storm will pull in Decimate , then copy that and the two Expertises and cast those copies in whatever order you choose.
  • Sunbird's Invocation will reveal 4 cards from the top of your library, and you may cast one of them with CMC 4 or less without paying its mana cost. The rest go on the bottom of your library. The new spell will go on top of anything else on the stack.
  • Swarm Intelligence copies Decimate . The copy is not cast.
  • Possibility Storm exiles Decimate , then exiles cards from your library until you hit another Sorcery. You may cast it without paying for it, and then all the exiled cards (including Decimate ) go on the bottom of your library in a random order.
  • Cascade will exile cards off your library until you hit one with CMC 3 or less that isn't a land, and then you may cast that for free. This would go on top of anything else on the stack.

It's important to note that Eye of the Storm , Sunbird's Invocation , and Possibility Storm look for you casting a card (Eye) or from hand (Sunbird and Possibility), so they won't look at copies, even ones cast from Eye.

Eye of the Storm will trigger for the cascaded spell, the Sunbird spell, and the replacement spell from Possibility Storm if they are instants or sorceries.

Sunbird's Invocation will trigger and resolve for the initial Decimate casting, but not for any other spells this whole mess adds to the stack since none of the rest are "from hand." Same with Possibility Storm . It doesn't matter if Eye ate the card that Possibility wants to exile; it will still resolve just fine.

Swarm Intelligence will trigger from the spells copied and cast by Eye of the Storm . As mentioned, those copies won't trigger anything.

Cascade will trigger for every spell you actually cast, which is all of them except Swarm Intelligence . Decimate will trigger it twice (initial cast, plus the copy from Eye of the storm).

It's a big mess. A lot really depends on what order you want to put the triggers in.

Thanks cdkime! I am still a little confused though.

Why does Possibility Storm still resolve if Eye of the Storm has taken Decimate off the stack?

Why does Eye of the Storm trigger Sunbird's Invocation when the cards are not cast from the hand? Related, why does Eye of the Storm not trigger Swarm Intelligence even though you are casting the copies?
