Indrik Stomphowler Discussion

Hey there,I don't know how much you want to invest in your deck so I will just use some cheap improvements.I would definetly add Merciless Executioner and Fleshbag Marauder cause they will gain you a huge amounts of value in long games and if you don't want to build Combo with meren,you should get as grindy as possible.Reclamation Sage would also help you to get rid of pesky enchantments and artifacts way earlier than something like Indrik Stomphowler.I would also change a swamp for an forest.You should definetly look a little on your curve because it seems you have a lot of flashy big mana(5+)Cards so look for some good 3 drops to smooth out your curve,

Sorry hit enter before I meant to. Are you using the land destruction of Acidic Slime at 5cc? If not how about larger creatures? Wickerbough Elder, Oxidda Scrapmelter, Indrik Stomphowler or Conclave Naturalists

I've been playing Animar, Soul of Elements for over four years and he's suuuper fun. I highly recommend it!
Here's the link to my deck so you can check it out. It's moved beyond a budget build, but it has a lot of the cheapo staples like Shrieking Drake, Ancestral Statue, Dream Stalker, Man-o'-War, Temur Sabertooth, Peregrine Drake, Cloud of Faeries, etc
You'll definitely need all the draw-card sources you can get. Animar tends to puke your hand onto the board quickly, leaving you open to boardwipes. Soul of the Harvest, Shaman of the Great Hunt, Primordial Sage, Zendikar Resurgent, Consecrated Sphinx if you can afford it, etc
To stop wipes you can use Mystic Snake, Draining Whelk, Stratus Dancer, etc. Interaction like Duplicant and Phyrexian Ingester are always good ideas. Ainok Survivalist, Reclamation Sage, Indrik Stomphowler, and Acidic Slime are all good
That's all from me for now. Be sure to swing by edhrec.com for a bazillion more ideas!

Pathbreaker Ibex seems cool. I'll put him in the maybeboard. Indrik Stomphowler and Conclave Naturalists cost too much for what they do. Selvala, Heart of the Wilds seems cool too, will put in maybeboard. There aren't enough targets for Woodland Bellower. Fierce Empath has some potential, so maybeboard. Ruric Thar, the Unbowed doesn't do enough to justify his CMC, same with Gruul Ragebeast and Whisperwood Elemental. Very limited counterspells in meta (shocking, right?) so no need for Spellbreaker Behemoth.
Cyclops Gladiator is nice removal, but 3 red in a primarily green deck is a stretch. Urabrask the Hidden is a great card (I just traded it away :/) and is MUST ADD. Thank you.Stonehoof Chieftain is something to consider, I will need to think about our stonehoofed friend. Fling is funny, but not the best fit IMO.Avatar of Slaughter is SO FUNNY! I am getting this for sure! The 2 worms are blehSteel Hellkite was definitely overlooked. I need to add it in for sure.
Heroes' Bane is a great replacement, I will make the switch. I like Primal hunter over Caller of beasts because it's cheaper, provides blockers and most importantly, card draw. Nylea, God of the Hunt costs 4 for a static trample, possible creature and a weak boost. Although I see it's potential use, I will need to think about it.Dragon Throne of Tarkir I would rather use the creature I'm equipping to attack
Zendikar Resurgent seems great, I will add it inSignal the Clans is a great card, but wouldn't it make more sense to get rid of rampant growth before nature's lore?Bower Passage seems interesting but is too limited.
I thought of that combo before and it seems hilarious as hell, but not worth running as each piece is weak on it's own. Blightsteel Colossus is great but I'm not a huge fan of infect. I don't mind if someone runs it, but I just don't like it. The Kiki combo is cool and I LOVE combos, but this is the 1 deck I'm trying to make without an inherent "insta win" because I would just tooth and nail those creatures each time. The only infinite combo I have in the deck cannot be tutored for so if it goes off, then it's more "fair" according to my LGS. Summoning Trap is limited but possibly a sideboard card.
Do you guys know what is a good CMC range for this kind of deck? I've always tried to make the CMC of my EDH decks anywhere between 2.8 and 3.4. I know the beaters in the deck skew the AVG CMC towards the higher end, but I am unsure as to what range i should try to fall into.

I'd highly recommend Pathbreaker Ibex. The card can easily win games by itself.
Creatures that might be good inclusions would probably be stuff like:
- Selvala, Heart of the Wilds
- Indrik Stomphowler
- Conclave Naturalists
- Woodland Bellower
- Fierce Empath
- Ruric Thar, the Unbowed
- Gruul Ragebeast
- Spellbreaker Behemoth
- Whisperwood Elemental (less good since you don't want too many creatures on board)
Hope these suggestions helped, and good luck with your list.

Interesting topic, considering the increasing amount of cards released in the last 3-5 years. Nowadays choosing a particular function is quite the feat; taking into account several factors such as CMC, deck's curve, archetype, needs of a particular deck and meta.
Personally, when dealing with such a choice, CMC associated with function plays an important role (e.g. Gifted Aetherborn vs Vampire Nighthawk). The Aetherborn fits quite nicely in the aggressive 2nd turn, while the Nighthawk offers more versatility for just 1 more mana.
Everything is contextual; in the case of Reclamation Sage vs Indrik Stomphowler, the latter would fit better in most green decks because of its sheer size, but in the case of a reanimator deck such as Meren of Clan Nel Toth, the former is more useful as it can die more easily.
Card choices beyond the staples are rarely easy, but a part of what makes this game a great game.
