Sacrifice a creature: Regenerate Devouring Strossus.
Devouring Strossus Discussion
1 year ago
I've recently completed building a deck based around Whisper, Blood Liturgist where the main idea is to get big creatures into the graveyard and then recur them. Originally I wanted to try a dimir version of Mayael the Anima, but there just aren't enough cards to do so effectively. This left a reanimator strategy.
Most mono-black reanimator decks seem to be built on one or more of three creature types: Zombies, Demons, and/or Vampires. In the spirit of the original concept, I want to avoid something you'd typically see in mono black and just play some fun non-zombie, non-vampire, and non-demon creatures.
I'd like to get suggestions for some fun to play fatties for a casual or mid-level commander setting.
I know there will be suggestions of the beloved Grave Titan or the new Torgaar, Famine Incarnate, so I'll just throw out there that I'd really prefer to stay away from super obvious suggestions. Perhaps suggest a card like Devouring Strossus, or Distended Mindbearer, or some other unusual card.
Thanks in advance!
The current version of the deck is here:

harbingerofduh i appreciate the feedback, the elves are good suggestions. And I do suppose dark ritual isn't really necessary. My strongest weapon would between Devouring Strossus Sisters of Stone Death and Phyrexian Obliterator The main tactic ive been using is Skullbriar, the Walking Grave just constantly attacking, and being as much of a pain to whoever. He seems to get big on his own so I removed a bunch of cards that place counters on him. Also if I get Zombie Master out and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth skullbriar can swampwalk.

Too bad Void Maw doesn't quite synergise with our commander. It was one of the first favorite cards I played with.
But! Devouring Strossus is another card I loved and should work here.

Hi Caeruleus; thanks for your suggestions. No +1 though? Such a shame ;) I had Reclamation Sage and Sylvok Replica in here before, along with the other enchantment/artifact removal stuff and decided to remove them. Reason: the deck already had plenty of other ways to deal with artifacts/enchantments.
I'm not sure what to think about the Dilligent Farmhand suggestion. What the hell is 'Muscle Burst'?

I appreciate this deck: the list looks pretty enjoyable. I just have a few of cards I think should be cut in favour of more interesting cards. If you want to keep the effect I've made some suggestions for alternatives in the slots; but really you could take those slots and put anything in there.
- Creakwood Liege: This just anthems and generates a token each turn. You're missing Reclamation Sage or Sylvok Replica both of which give you some more control, and recurr.
- Vulturous Zombie: This is just a big fat flier. Any demon or similar, perhaps Rune-Scarred Demon, but really, you could go with anything; Devouring Strossus is a bit of fun
- Sylvan Caryatid: 2 mana mana dork that lets you get down Meren turn 3. Perhaps try Diligent Farmhand as interacts far better with Meren.
Happy Brewing & dream big! :)
