Giant Adephage Discussion

Hausar on Bronas

Good spot, I had the wrong land in there. It was meant to be Memorial to Unity. I had Worldspine Wurm in there to begin with but I didn't really feel it added much to the deck and in most games, my Allosaurus Rider is easier to cast and is bigger. Hydra Broodmaster is a fantastic late game mana sink and has won me games when people don't have an answer to it the turn it drops.

Giant Adephage is an interesting choice, I'll try out a copy in the deck.

Memorial to Glory shouldnt be in there. Also I replaced Allosaurus Rider with the Worldspine Wurm as suggested and Hydra Broodmaster with Giant Adephage.

pokepower116 on Trostani - Populate the World (WIP)

Wow, your list is pretty much beat-for-beat how I would like to run a Trostani deck! So as far as adds go, there aren't any that immediately come to mind aside from maybe Test of Endurance, Oracle of Mul Daya, Swiftfoot Boots, and Lightning Greaves. Especially the last two since you have so many cards that require attacking (Myraid cards, Wingmate Roc, Giant Adephage, Wayfaring Temple, Sun Titan) and cards that require tapping to activate (Trostani, Rhys & Oviya). Not to mention you don't want a massive token just sitting around without protection; swing with it right away AND give it hexproof/shroud!

Cuts, on the other hand, I have a couple of suggestions for. Since your deck (and Trostani decks in general) are much better at going tall than going wide, I'd probably recommend cutting some of the "go-wide" cards. Essence Warden, Soul Warden, and Soul's Attendant are good low drops and good at gaining life but aside from cards like Storm Herd I don't see us gaining a lot of life in this deck from these cards. If they're mostly in here because of the low mana cost I'd recommend the cheap mana dorks like Birds of Paradise, Elvish Mystic and Llanowar Elves instead to help you reach your big cards quicker.

Roar of the Wurm, Wurmcalling, and Slime Molding I'm torn on. They seem a bit too mana intensive for what you're getting but they do scale with the game (aside from Roar of the Wurm).

Voracious Wurm seems kind of "win-more" since you need to have gained a considerable amount of life (probably from playing a big token already) before you want to play it. However it is only 2 mana so it probably wouldn't hurt to keep it in.

Celestial Convergence has always been removed before the last counter is taken off in every game I've played.

Cradle of Vitality is kind of like Voracious Wurm in regards to how you're only getting value from the card if you've already played something big. Could be worth it, but if you have a 10/10 on the board, would a 20/20 help you that much more?

Wingmate Roc doesn't seem like it's impactful enough for the mana cost.

Hopefully some of these help! In short I think since your curve is pretty high you should work on either reducing some of the higher CMC cards (but a lot of those are your win conditions or good token generators, so maybe not) or increasing the amounts of ramp in the deck. Good luck! Digging it so far.

Hey there, I really like Rapacious One in my Xenagos deck, curves out of Xenagos, and sets you up to cast the real big stuff/multiple threats ( Worldspine, Giant Adephage, Balefire Dragon) after the table realises your going to kill them all.

I found that as my playgroup got used to getting hit for 30+ damage they began to lean heavily on wraths to try and stem the flow, so I began to shift to annoying, value beaters and recursion. Genesis regrows a creature at the low cost of 3 mana every turn, Vorapede is a fine beatstick without Xenagos, Feldon of the Third Path is an excellent way to get value out of your graveyard, too. Deadwood Treefolk was also surprisingly good, though it’s maybe outclassed by Greenwarden of Murasa, it still mashes in for 6 w/‘Gos out and blocks well. Eternal Witness is another option.

And Atarka, World Render, the “you take 24” cannon that gets better if you throw even a few extra dragons in ( Scourge of the Throne, Balefire, Dragon Broodmother produces a steady stream of chumps so you can swing freely each turn.

And Wolfir Silverheart for the casual 12/12 worth of power for 5 mana. Temur Battle Rage is an ace here too.

No worries, it's actually quite interesting to watch your deck evolve since I only played netdecks when I first started so I didn't go through the same type of deckbuilding. And the creatures, equipment, and tokens strategies you're aiming for are ones that I love as well.

Speaking of which, some other big creatures that make lots of tokens are Giant Adephage, Living Hive, Avenger of Zendikar, Dragon Broodmother, Grave Titan, Nacatl War-Pride.

Removal suggestions:

Heritage Druid: your other elf mana dorks are far more viable and are useful by themselves; with how many dorks you have you would likely have to tap one of them to use her effect anyways

Joraga Treespeaker:He's a mana sinkhole; he'll either die before you can max his level or you'll only max him because you have nothing better to spend the mana on at which point he's useless. He's only actually uniquely useful if you can play him turn one, and that's a long shot

Realm Seekers: A neat card, but would be better replaced with a more lethal creature or at least one with more utility

Sages of the Anima: this one is iffy, but in the end it's a relatively slow effect on a vulnerable stick. I would advise replacing it with something like an enchantment with a similar effect if you're dead set on having something like this, but otherwise just replace it with something else altogether.

Replacement notes:

I would also advise finding some creatures that are decently lethal quickly on their own. Ezuri can make the little guys dangerous as it is, so the big fellas get real nasty when he can buff them up. You may want to put in a few heavy hitters that can get you lethal, as it decreases your build up time and stops you from having to give a mana dork 2 or 3 turns of +1/+1 tokens and trample to be dangerous. I'll always suggest Pathbreaker Ibex as he can turn one decent creature and some shrimps into an overwhelming force. Giant Adephage would also work great as Ezuri's buff(s) will make it nearly impossible to stop you from getting a token with him, or go with Plated Crusher for a decent mix of durability and damage and to keep budget low. You may also want to look at X drop creatures and see if anything fits your build, as with the number of mana dorks you have and the amount of man you will likely need to keep around to keep Ezuri on the board, they could easily get out of hand. I'll still suggest Scute Mob despite him not being an elf simply because he really fits the theme. There are probably some blue or blue/green creatures that will fit this bill too, but this is a start anyways.

Other notes:

Make sure you have a strong mana base. Your dorks are good and all but you're going to lose them and Ezuri more than once, and you need to be able to replace him without their help. Ensure you have some mana doubling cards to help to this end. Also ensure you have several equipment to give creatures haste; Ezuri's ability triggers at the beginning of combat so you can throw out something nasty and go nuclear at the drop of a hat, catching players off guard with some impressive damage.

Cards I would strongly consider: Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Chandra's Ignition, Blightsteel Colossus, Nissa, Vital Force, and Sol Ring, instead of Fellwar Stone?

As far as cuts go, that's pretty hard! All of these cards are fun. But I might take out Lightning Greaves, Somberwald Sage, Giant Adephage, and Karn, Scion of Urza.

Of those, I feel Lightning Greaves is the easiest cut, as it isn't in there to protect your general (who does a good job of that anyway) and you have so many threats and tutors for those threats that it doesn't matter if they get removed. In addition, when it's equipped to a creature, you can't target the creature with Xenagos's ability anyway.
