Gigapede Discussion

Arby_Q on Making her more degenerate

1 year ago

Deadeye Navigator is great with Zegana. Stormsurge Kraken and Gigapede are nice too, because they come out a turn before Zegana, give a lot of cards with her, and are hard to remove. Adding Great Whale and Palinchron gives you a way to make infinite mana and draw your deck with Deadeye as well.

Big, high CMC creatures are totally unnecessary. Zegana works much better with bounce/blink effects to draw more cards for less mana, through spells like Ghostly Flicker, Displace, and Illusionist's Stratagem. Since you want to win through combo anyway, there's no reason to have Eldrazi titans, Ghalta, or Myojin in the deck. Those flicker spells also combo with Great Whale/Palinchron and Eternal Witness/Archaeomancer to make infinite mana.

Your countermagic has really high mana costs. In my opinion, Miscalculation, Mana Leak, Spell Pierce, Arcane Denial, and Memory Lapse should all be used before any 3 mana counterspells. That being said, Forbid is super gross with Zegana as your commander. Also, Scour from Existence is terrible.

Chord of Calling, Worldly Tutor, and Green Sun's Zenith would all improve consistency. Woodland Bellower and Fierce Empath can help get you to your first big creature.

What's the point of Gigapede?

Nice deck. Take my +1.

Have you considered a little "beetle talk" in Commune with Nature or Commune with the Gods? Since you don't really care about the yard, the first might be better, but commune 2 can also filter for path.

(If it weren't modern, Gigapede would be awesome with commune with the gods.)

Arby_Q on What is your favorite commander?

Prime Speaker Zegana: One of the few commanders that does its thing on cast. Always included Stormsurge Kraken and Gigapede.
Karametra, God of Harvests: It's just lands and creatures. Don't worry about it.
Progenitus: 5 color draw-go. 30 instants and very consistent, without mana from nonland sources of course. Permananents are for scrubs.

Gigapede or Nighthowler maybe?

I appreciate the comments.

I took Gigapede and Giant Solifuge out because they were very limited. Giant Solifuge just doesn't have enough power most of the time and Gigapede doesn't have trample, which makes him easy to block.

I took out Shocker and Barbed Shocker for not making enough of a difference to try out Swarm of Bloodflies and Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest though. They have been quite excellent. If I wasn't already a fan of Xira Arien I'd have Mazirek be my commander.

Check this out. It's a Xira proxy I found with awesome art. Anyway I love the deck, I had a similar idea except I'm putting in spiders also. I'm using a lot of your build as a primer. Thanks! Also you should check out Gigapede and Giant Solifuge.

Nice man!

Never heard of Gigapede.

I always wonder why people use so often Aquamoeba instead of Thought Courier or Merfolk Looter or Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip
