Hua Tuo, Honored Physician Discussion

djewell on Power Devour Pounding Hour

Sounds good! I have a few suggestions... this is always the hard part of deck building xD

Let's first go through and look at things that are not pertaining to your two win conditions, (Prossh or devour creatures)

We could take out Charnelhoard Wurm because it really doesn't help you out that much. All the creatures you sacrifice now (as opposed to the original deck list) are going to be tokens so you really don't need to much recursion. If a creature dies, just move along! Same thing with Hua Tuo, Honored Physician, Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper (as far as the whole "you aren't sacrificing non tokens" thing)

maybe take out Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, I just feel like you can do much much better with a token creation engine. The sacrifice thing kinda turns me off to it.

Hellkite Hatchling is a bit underwhelming for a devour creature.

Ophiomancer is a very fun card but is just slowing you down.

Shattergang Brothers is just not quite good imo. You aren't going to sacrifice anything else but a creature except on very rare occasion.

Quagmire Druid is not bad, but is a slot taken up in your deck. Keep it close by just in case you need more enchantment removal.

Smothering Abomination is good in a vacuum but I feel like if you get it out.. that you'll find its hard to have things to sacrifice at the beginning of your upkeep as you fuel devour and prossh.

Stronghold Assassin and Viscera Seer can come out if you're getting picky. They are good utility cards but if you're looking to cut fat out of the deck, they are viable options.

Foster I think is going to skip over some of your token producer cards.. and we don't want that happening xD

Vile Requiem is really really slow removal.

Hunter's Prowess because I think you are going to draw WAAAAAY too many cards off of that and not be able to hold on to them.

Also switch out the Borderland Ranger and put in a Caravan Vigil! That basically guarantees you an untapped land with all this token sacrificing that's going on.

Thanks DraftVader, I quite like Hua Tuo, Honored Physician for his effect to just bring back some of the strong creatures, such as Avenger of Zendikar, and to just bring back some other things such as the Elvish Lyrist for more removal. I do like the cards that you suggested, however I guess Hua Tuo, Honored Physician just suits my play style.

Unless you have a special reason for wanting Hua Tuo, Honored Physician as your commander I'd recommend changing to something else. Something like Polukranos, World Eater/Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip/Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter would offer you more value.

Perhaps Skarrg Goliath for commander damage win out of no where? Maybe even Ghor-Clan Rampager. I really do like the synergy Bloodrush brings to the table in this deck, getting around Ruric Thar's ability and all.

Recommending Primordial Sage because you can't get enough card draw. Also consider Hua Tuo, Honored Physician for pretty consistent recursion. Skullwinder is good too. Bloodmark Mentor helps keep RT alive in combat. Boartusk Liege and Instigator Gang  Flip if you're looking for more anthems. Khenra Charioteer if you need more trample enablers.

I would replace Goblin War Drums with Champion of Lambholt asap. It's pretty necessary if you want your creatures to be evasive. Elder of Laurels is great for pumping, gets crazy in the late game.

Good example swaps from above would include:

Kodama's Reach or Cultivate in place of Spoils of Victory since you don't run any dual lands that spoils can fetch for you.

Courser of Kruphix for Rites of Flourishing if your own draw is strong enough. That way you're not letting your opponents have the bonus card in hand and land plays

Hua Tuo, Honored Physician for something like Sudden Reclamation or Treasured Find

Rampaging Baloths might be better in this deck than Greenwarden of Murasa

Also, a new one I found: Zuran Orb could be brutal with Herald of Leshrac

Kodama's Reach and Cultivate are pretty common standards for green mana ramping

Far Wanderings is HUGE value in a deck that is likely to have a graveyard when it shows up

Burgeoning could be a good effect for you if you get the draw engine going

Rampaging Baloths is another landfall monster

Courser of Kruphix can help you find more lands to benefit from your commander's ability.

Scavenging Ooze and Deathrite Shaman are great utility cards. Ability to mess with others' graveyards can really come in handy

Wave of Vitriol can be a nice card to run depending on how nasty your meta is

Hua Tuo, Honored Physician can help you get cards back from the yard. As can Phyrexian Reclamation

Overall looks like a fun deck to play. Hopefully you can find something useful out of the above suggestions!
