Gluttonous Slime Discussion

Hey VexenX, I agree with you about combat damage. Since I have been running Omnath combat damage has been 'a nice to have' with the elementals, unless Craterhoof Behemoth is involved at which point we're winning anyway. That said, we don't run many haste enablers so this build leans towards burn damage. There have definitely been games that I could have won earlier if I had a cheap haste enabler online. With the new commander ruling about death triggers when going to the command zome it is even better for us to run a 'doubler' effect like this.

I didn't run Traverse the Outlands for a long time, tested it and it was great but ultimately got cut again as I don't like that it is conditional to board state and it is our most expensive land search and only for basics.

Rishkar's Expertise is a really difficult call. This card has always done so much work as it is almost always cast off of a elemental or large Tireless Tracker. I have recently added Momentous Fall as an instant speed card draw and sac outlet, again with the new commander rule playing this on Omnath is nice to refill out hand and deal some damage, potentally t kill our own World Shaper. I think I will just switch out Elemental Bond for Garruk's Uprising and see how it goes as a straight switch.

I am contemplating Shamanic Revelation as this card is very conditional and as we are adding other card draw into our deck is this just a win more card? I'd almost prefer to keep Rishkar's Expertise over it as apart from the life gain my opponents won't often let me resolve are card that'll generate so much value, as if it does resolve we're winning already. What do you think? a bit too controversial a cut?

I have also been considering testing Skullmulcher or Gluttonous Slime again with the commander death trigger rule change and the addition of Fiery Emancipation, tutoring with Chord of Calling to sac our board state at instant speed sounds appealling or using Green Sun's Zenith or Finale of Devastation at sorcery speed with Boseiju, Who Shelters All protection.

As I already have Finale of Devastation, Fabled Passage and World Shaper I think my cuts will be as follows:

Elemental Bond OUT FOR Garruk's Uprising

Shamanic Revelation OUT FOR Terror of the Peaks - waiting to be told this is wrong lol

Akroma's Memorial OUT FOR Fiery Emancipation

Nice list, should be fun for casual play. I'd look at mechanics like morbid Tragic Slip , Scavenge Slitherhead , unearth Extractor Demon , and 'classic' sacrifice effect creatures like Spore Frog or Bottle Gnomes / Brindle Boar . Stag is currently your only way to deal with flying creatures, so something like Aerie Ouphes would likely help.

Past that, relax and build something to be fun with your playgroup. Good casual games aren't about consistancy (uneless its consistant fun), they are about creating fun memories and flashing in Gluttonous Slime in response to living end.

Hey VexenX, I love Burgeoning in the deck, it is almost if not the best turn 1 play we can have I would be very reluctant to cut it. If you're not seeing the value then of course do what works best with your play style.

In regards utility creatures there are a few I have tested, as mentioned World Shaper is a great Splendid reclaimation on stick, I rarely used it for the attack trigger and it normally got a bolt from Omnath, Locus of Rage or sacrificed to one of our many outlets, comboing this with Sylvan Safekeeper , Titania, Protector of Argoth and Omnath, Locus of Rage on the field is explosive. Other creatures I like but can't find space for are Skullmulcher , a creature + sac outlet and card draw on a body, Green Sun's Zenith or Chord of Calling this guy out when your sac outlets have been removed or countered to finish of a player second main phase, remember it is a may ability so can still keep enough tokens out for defense if needs be. The other option which is slightly less value but more reliable and cheaper CMC is Gluttonous Slime , this doesn't have the card draw but is an instant speed sac outlet. If I could find a space for one of them I'd include them but I haven't been able to justify the slot yet. There is also Silverglade Elemental and obviously Wood Elves , I used to run the latter and use it as a Natural Order target. I would typically do the same with Dryad Arbor keeping an uncracked fetch in play so I can find the Dryad Arbor when it's time to cast Natural Order or if you need a blocker at a push.
Some food for thought..

@AwesomeName Thanks for the suggestions! I did consider adding Experiment One (I have a playset lol) but I opted to go with Servant of the Scale because although he doesn't dodge removal persay like Experiment One does, when he is hit with removal (as long as it doesn't bounce or exile, which regenerate doesn't dodge anyways) he can make one of my other threats stronger with his "die move", instead of leaving me with just a much weaker Experiment One. He also doesn't enter the battlefield with counters to start unless he is Savage Summoninged, so I don't get an immediate benefit from Hardened Scales.

As for Predator Ooze, he also doesn't enter with any counters and doesn't provide me any other benefit other than an inevitable clock (unless bounced or exiled). Gluttonous Slime allows me to effectively negate spells that target my other creatures by absorbing their power since I can cast him at instant speed, whereas Gristleback can enter with a counter on it and provides life gain versus other aggro decks if needed. Also Predator Ooze is more expensive lmao.

Scavenging Ooze Is a great suggestion, I would really like to add him in place of like the Gristlebacks or something but I'm not willing to drop 20$ on a playset right now. Maybe in the future!

Strangleroot Geist also sounds like a great addition, I will definitely be testing those out. I totally missed those interactions when I was thinking about what to add to this deck, so thanks for pointing those out.

Avatar of the Resolute. This one looks good on paper but I feel like against some/most decks they won't be allowing my creatures to stick for long, so it wouldn't be providing a lot of lategame benefit for me. The lategame is also why I have the hydras in here since they scale throughout the game with their x costs. I will definitely be testing this one though and if in most games my creatures stick then I will consider adding this one.

Thank you for your suggestions, they were very helpful!


I don't really like Skarrgan Pit-Skulk because I can't reliably get damage in until like turn 3 in a perfect world and it could still get removed or blocked. It's more of a high risk reward type of thing whether I can proc it or not. So actually I may look into that still, idk.

Idk if I can get behind Simic Initiate, cause you can only distribute one counter at a time and I feel like that's too slow for my liking.

Also Hangarback Walker= rip wallet, I wish though. That would be fantastic.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Cool deck! Here's my suggestions:

  • Consider adding in Experiment One, maybe taking out Servant of the Scale for it. Experiment One can grow big fast, and has regeneration built into it.
  • I think you should remove your Gluttonous Slime and Gristleback, replacing them with Predator Ooze, which is much more powerful.
  • Scavenging Ooze is another amazing counters card. It grows very quickly, and gains you life while you're at it. Since it eats up graveyards, it will destroy any graveyard based deck.
  • Strangleroot Geist is another really good card I can think of that has to do with counters. If it is killed, it will just come back even stronger. It even will work with your Gluttonous Slimes and Life's Legacy, making it so that instead of losing a creature, you just get a stronger one.
  • Avatar of the Resolute is another card to consider. He acts as 2 cards: early game, he will most likely be a 3/2 or 4/3, and can be used to get in some quick damage. Late game however, he will be a huge, reaching and trampling guy.
