Forsake the Worldly Discussion

4 Sky Terror 4 Nest Robber and then cut Thrash of Raptors and Imperial Aerosaur as far as enchantment hate is concerned, 4 Forsake the Worldly is fine to run in the mainboard since it basically says pay 2 draw a card. I would cut Demolish completely.

I was just about to replace Act of Heroism with Forsake the Worldly and drop all but that and the Compulsory Rest down to 2 a piece

I'm not sure the deck can support Kusari-Gama... I remember waiting a long time to get lands 5, 6, 7, and 8 when I last played the deck. Even then you're spending your entire turn just to attack for a few extra points of damage?

If you don't want Glare of Subdual but still want to be able to tap your general without attacking, try Springleaf Drum.

I personally think Oketra's Monument and Relic Crush seem a little strange for the deck... perhaps I'm not valuing them enough since I haven't played them... maybe cut one of them?

Also I think Sylvan Reclamation, Return to Dust, Aura of Silence, Forsake the Worldly, Terashi's Grasp, Tribute to the Wild, and Return to the Earth are are better choices than Relic Crush in this deck.

I forgot to suggest earlier that Buried Ruin may help bring back artifacts. Maybe cut Opal Palace if you find the +1/+1 counter doesn't help?

It's been a long while since I've updated this deck. However, in all my new set scanning, I'd say that Axis of Mortality is the insane jank that this setup yearns for. Thank you for the updates, Rabid_Wombat and Suprek.

CynicalDog - I dig the idea behind Pestilent Souleater, I'll see if I can find a slot to test it with!

I've also considered toying with the following cards as recursion/removal/draw replacement:

If anyone has any additional thoughts regarding their own iterations of this deck, don't hesitate to provide your own suggestions.

Hi Goatlord!

As I see you play aggrostyle in a commander and I love that. Is it for multyplayer or 1vs1-use?

I like your card choices like Brave the Sands or the Ghostly Prison idea which in multiplayer works great with Fumiko the Lowblood

Off the top of my head I would suggest:

I have a multiplayer-build of Iroas and if you do, you have to have strategies how to defend if you plan to go attacking each turn. If you want to check out my strategy of doing so you're invited to get some inspiration from Iroas, God of War (Multiplayer EDH).

@420planeswalker +1 savage stomp; forgot about the enrage trigger. I think the deck could just go GR dinos like the pros have hinted on and -4 caller, -2 sunwing; but then it would give up binding and sideboard options 9 namely Forsake the Worldly. Another thought I had was sideboard Sweltering Suns due to the versatility of the cycling ability. Monument, God-Pharaoh's Gift and of course energy are all good.

SufferFromEDHD: Cast Out and Forsake the Worldly could really help. I think i will find a slot for at least one of them. Thanks. But i am not a fan of Marshaling Cry in this deck.

Macharius5622 and SufferFromEDHD: I REALLY want, alot of times need, my cascade to be consistent hit living end. I think i will playtest/goldfish with it to see if it adds more to the deck than it messes with the cascade. Maybe i am wrong :)

This deck is awesome. +1 from me.


Cast Out and Forsake the Worldly remove problematic artifacts and enchantments.

Marshaling Cry might be worth a slot.
