Grothama, All-Devouring Discussion

When Battlebond released, MTGGoldfish made an Estimated Value article like usual, but keep in mind this was right after set release. The important thing to remember from this article is that the reprints hit a floor ~3-6 months after release and then rebound in price. Currently, its been about 2 months since release, meaning cards have the opportunity to drop further, but still rebound in price. The important bit for your pull is that True-Name Nemesis will only go up, as reprinting is VERY unlikely and it is near the low point for price. That said, if you wanna buy a couple boxes of Guilds of Ravnica when it comes out, selling it is still a fine idea as the price increase will probably be pretty slow since its an extremely expensive foil already.
Anyway, the part I'm more interested here is the current Estimated Value of a box, as I mostly forgot how valueable this set is and I bet you can pick up boxes for pretty cheap. According to MTGStocks, the EV of a pack is $4.28 on average and the EV of a box of Battlebond is $154.08 on Average, meaning if you can get a box at (or likely below) MSRP you'll probably get your money back unless you are extremely unlucky like me and pull 3 Grothama, All-Devouring and all your rares are Goblin Razerunners. This is just the average EV (when based on Market price it drops a little btw), but remember that most of these cards have nowhere to go but up, especially the mythics, and then you've got the crazy lottery cards like True-Name Nemesis. Not only is True-Name an absurd amount of money, but Based on this 7 foil mythics are worth $60 or more, and after that, even the cheapest one, Grothama, All-Devouring is a $15 foil. There are also a few in the $50 range, a few in the $40s, etc. 6 rares have foils worth over $45, and after that there are a few more surprisingly expensive foil rares such as Archon of Valor's Reach at $25. And dont forget that Partners come in pairs, and foil partners are in foil pairs! That means if you pull the $44 foil Rowan Kenrith you also got the $48 foil Will Kenrith. If you pull the $13 foil Pir, Imaginative Rascal, you also got the $10 foil Toothy, Imaginary Friend.
Overall, I think buying a box of Battlebond is probably worth it just for value, and even more if you can convince enough people to come draft it with you (with you of course taking all the cards if you bought the box yourself). And Battelbond boxes are still easily available for under $100 with little effort, and if you want to fight a bidding war on eBay, there are currently auctions for way under $100, but obviously those prices are going up before the auction ends.

Lucky! I was pretty salty when I about 2 weeks ago opened a foil mythic as well, but mine rather was Grothama, All-Devouring :(

something about running this card in the deck seems humorous... Grothama, All-Devouring

I would caution against making anything so close to a new commander set coming out. With that out of the way here are my thoughts.
In His Belly is a deck I built recently that seems to be rather explosive. It doesn't do much early game but set up a large creature to eat Grothama, All-Devouring like Mossbridge Troll and you draw a quarter of your deck. Lay down Myojin of Life's Web and then half your hand and you should win there. If not that 10/8 is ready to come back and with a slight buff will 2 shot players out of the game.
Divine Decree I'm suggesting this one simply because it is my favorite deck and I designed it to work slowly while protecting itself. It doesn't really matter what my opponents bring to the field because Her Highness, Queen Marchesa, is bringing an answer. The variety of pillows in this deck seems to be able to hold off most strategies plus lifegain makes it really hard on the decks that do get around the pillows. Usually wins by a combo or by Revel in Riches but Manabarbs and Painful Quandary and friends sure do put a hurt on everyone. I get a lot of joy out of playing this deck because I don't have to answer every threat, "you played Phage the Untouchable?, that's cool. can you pay 8 mana to attack me?" is a scenario that comes up often.
Mistress of Poisons is likely the most competitive deck I've built which is why I stopped playing it. With some more tutors you could consistently combo off rather early. I had several games where I won turn 4. If anyone stops the combos they better hope they don't rely on creatures, even the indestructible ones will wither away rather quickly.

Give Grothama lifelink and you gain 10 life for every fight! Really dumb if you give your stuff indestructible with something like Eldrazi Monument.
Perhaps even scarier is that Grothama bursts out of the ground on turn 5 as a 10/8. Just a little pump and he two shots anyone out of the game.
Some other silly tricks exist too, if you are interested check out my deck :) Yes I'm doing this mostly to plug my deck but I also think it is odd how little popularity something with so many ways to mess with the game has.
On that final note feel free to bring up your own commanders that you think should be more popular and some of the dirty tricks you can do with them.
