Hua Tuo, Honored Physician Discussion
2 weeks ago
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.
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.

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.

Good example swaps from above would include:

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.
Wave of Vitriol can be a nice card to run depending on how nasty your meta is
Overall looks like a fun deck to play. Hopefully you can find something useful out of the above suggestions!
