Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs Discussion

JoeBob21 on Aurelia, the Warleader EDH - Make them panic

5 days ago

What I would take out: Leonin Shikari, I don't think you have enough equipments to put this card in, and same thing with Sram, Senior Artificer not enough equipments and you have no aura's.Add: Sol Ring good ramp, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs gives you good blockers, Warstorm Surge is a pretty good damage source, Victory's Herald is a pretty good lifegain source.I used to have an Aurelia, the Warleader deck and it worked out pretty well

Suggested additions

Brion Combos


You'll almost certainly want to play some Wrath of God style board clears, since you will often be clearing your own board with Brion. Good options besides the aforementioned wrath:

There are some other good red staples to consider that are on theme with the deck:

Suggested Subtractions

You'll probably find Mana Tithe to be less useful in the casual EDH meta. Thornbite Staff seems equally underwhelming. Young Pyromancer doesn't really do anything in this list.

I'd say Queen Marchesa, but if you feel like you'll miss blue go with O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami and run everything.

Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs can go in either deck and be great, but in the command zone limits your color options.

Zedruu the Greathearted is cool but a good chunk of the deck would have to be dedicated to what he does to benefit from him. You can't go giving your good stuff away so I feel like he isn't the right fit. I've played Delaying Shield in Marchesa and so it can still be used to good effect.

My personal bias is to my Queen. But if blue is something you feel like you need, O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami might be the way to go. He seems like the best way to blend all these elements and make a really unique deck.

Let me know when you have a decklist(or multiple) up! I'll be happy to check it out!

EDIT: Snipped! I'll be there shortly!

Okay, so many comments here!

I'm probably gonna be prototyping a few decks with each of the different suggested commanders here. I'll post them here when I have a rough outline of each.

Thoughts between Zedruu the Greathearted, Queen Marchesa, O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami, and just Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs?

Zedruu the Greathearted allows for some cool tricks with cards like Delaying Shield, as well as drawing me cards and gaining back the life I lose from everyone attacking me. Also, gives me Courtly Provocateur-style effects, as well as Riddlekeeper and Isperia, Supreme Judge, both of which seem like some of the best cards in this style of deck.

Queen Marchesa does a lot of things for the deck, and is my top pick as of right now. gives me No Mercy effects, High Priest of Penance (and the Phyrexian Reclamation that would make it great), rattlesnake cards like Ophiomancer, and does a lot herself, such as giving me card draw, or another reason to attack me, and when I'm not the monarch she gives me deathtouchers to make attacking me extra painful.

O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami gives me all the above mentioned cards, and gives me an attack punisher in the command zone. Not a lot to say about it, other than getting to Vindicate something every turn seems pretty good. Or twice a turn with Fireshrieker. Would also give me an easy actual wincon in commander damage, since it's big and evasive.

Finally, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, the card that started this, is probably my last pick since I don't get to play a lot of the cool cards like No Mercy and stuff. However, having one of the best punishers at all times might be the correct choice.

So after all that thinking maybe it would be better to go mono red with Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs as your commander. He gets you what you want to do and keeps things simple so the deck works. Basandra, Battle Seraph if you really want more colors I suppose. Just a thought, sometimes less colors makes for a much better deck.

RazortoothMtg on Help with Forced Attack Deck

Hello all! I'm looking to build a deck that forces everyone to attack me, then punishes them with cards like Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs.

The problem is I don't have nearly enough cards.

For cards that force people to attack, I have Trove of Temptation, Fumiko the Lowblood, Boros Battleshaper (kind of), Bident of Thassa, and Alluring Siren. Also Hellraiser Goblin, since I plan on the commander being Zedruu the Greathearted

As for punishing them when they attack, all I have is Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, and then Lust for War-type cards, but those aren't great.

And yes, while cards like Crown of Doom, Gahiji, Honored One, and Assault Suit seem great, I want people to attack me. But it only really works if there are more cards like Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs that then punishes them for attacking me.

Edit: After looking a little more, I found Goblin Spymaster, Goblin Diplomats, War's Toll, Warmonger Hellkite, Curse of the Nightly Hunt, and Grand Melee

Gotreck on Purphoros, God of Tokens (Multiplayer EDH Primer)

1 month ago

ay.lobo i would change it because:

first: You get rid of the +2 devotion making purphoros more difficult to remove.

second: You can sacrifice it the moment it hits the battlefield dealing 10 damage in one turn, 15 if Impact Tremors is in the field or 20 with Panharmonicon.

third: You also get the sacrifice outlet value without getting punished. For example, 1 point of damage with Goblin Bombardment or 2 colorless mana from Ashnod's Altar. In my deck i also include Skirk Prospector which it gives you an insane amount of value, since you can also sacrifce the tokens that Goblin Marshal produce giving you 5 red mana to cast more stuff.

fourth: More goblin sinergy.

Fifth: With Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs people can still pay 3 mana to hit you or they can simply hit you because its not like Propaganda. To me it seems kinda slow since you have to wait for them to attack you to get value out of him because lets be real with an aggro deck like purphoros you deal damage a lot faster than your opponents so you dont really care about them attacking you.

Sorry for the long comment.
