Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs Discussion

I know i'm super late to the comment party as this deck is now 2 years old...

but let me start off by saying kudos for the flavoring! I agree that Boldwyr Intimidator is just a really fun card with its own flavor as well!

I think that, unfortunately, the warrior tribal is quite limiting for your deck, however. :( I came here to get some inspiration for my Ruric Thar deck and one thing you do well that many people don't is you actually made the deck creature heavy. You wouldn't believe the amount of people that play it like a normal deck with many non creature spells.

If you want to maintain the warrior tribal, might I suggest playing Samut, Voice of Dissent as your commander? This opens you up to another color as well (white) and you can play non creatures freely, providing needed buffs to your warriors (artifacts especially since you have Vulshok Battlemaster). It's a new card, so it's sort of a new development for ya. I think it will add a lot to your deck. Not to mention that white is the king of anthem effects, which will buff all of your creatures and there are a good number of warriors in the color as well.

If you're not big on white, alternatively you could go with Kresh the Bloodbraided which will add black instead.

I really liked the cards Silklash Spider and Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs and those will probably make it into my deck here on tapped out.

Happy deck building!

Grind sadly the myriad trigger happens after attacks are declared. The melee trigger happens as attacks are declared. I wish they could work together and be super broken.

I like Heartless Hidetsugu and he'll probably replace another creature. But Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs gives some defense in all the aggro this deck will be doing. There are also other token buffs to make the ogres stronger or more of them.

saw your deck on the commander thread! here are some quick suggestions hope they help, have fun!

i feel like adriana's melee ability really wants a creature to have Blade of Selves. i feel like you could stack the myriad trigger before the melee trigger but i'm not exactly sure.
also your creature count and land count look a little questionable to me. for 31 lands, i want my deck's average CMC to be super low - like sub 3, you are at 3.87 right now. If you don't want to retool your mana curve i would cut a few of your least favorite creatures and try to up your land count to at least 35-37.
just my 2 cents.
also i like Fervor over Flameshadow Conjuring but thats just me.
also, i feel like your deck is aggro and Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, while a great card, is actually kinda pillowfort. if you want to go full aggro consider trying another five-drop Heartless Hidetsugu instead.

Good evening, thegigibeast, NarejED, and everyone here. Its been a while, but Im ready to resubmit my Purphoros, God of the Forge deck again since it finally hit 100 upvotes. Alright, let me begin my case.

I believe that a Purphoros deck needs to be more than a Tribal-goblin deck. If left to be purely goblin-like, you tend to miss out on amazing and needed cards, like Norin the Wary, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, Tempt with Vengeance, and Grinning Ignus, just to name a few. Infinite combos are also awesome, but as has very minimal amount of tutor cards, I just leave them along (also a personal preference not to have infinite combos here). However I do list them in my description in case a player wants to have them too.

With some suggestions, I have lowered the CMC in this deck. Even with Blasphemous Act, the range is as little as 2.69. I've also changed up a third of the deck by adding Snow-Covered Mountain and all. Hmm... However, I do not believe that Purphoros needs a card like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. My goal with Purphoros is to not let him have enough devotion to be a creature, as even indestructible creatures are more prone to removals more than indestructible enchantments, case being Swords to Plowshares and Dictate of Erebos.

I hope that you would reconsider my request to see if my deck is worth joining the list here. Or any comments/suggestions. Thank you for your time.

Betrayal, Endless Whispers, Order of Succession, Mana-Charged Dragon could all be interesting things to add. Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs and Crown of Doom are good incentive to make other people targets. Djinn of Infinite Deceits is also really fun to flip the tables with.

I have a Tajic, Blade of the Legion Soldier Tribal EDH deck, and the two biggest workhorses in my deck have been Marton Stromgald & Daru Warchief.

Best overall card: Reconnaissance. it doesn't play like the text, now with rule changes and all the steps in the Combat Phase, you can use it at any time you get priority (after Declare Attackers, After Declare Blockers, after Assign First Strike Damage, etc etc).

NOTE Today (April 11th), they spoiled a new card from Amonkhet that doubles tokens, like Parallel Lives BUT IN WHITE! It is called Anointed Procession, and is going into my Soldier Tribal deck the day it is released. That will get crazy with Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs and Martial Coup.

Hope they continue to enjoy Magic!

EDH can be a little intense at first, because so many different cards come at you all at once.

Hunter's Prowess, Garruk's Packleader, Soul of the Harvest and Elemental Bond are all good sources of drawing cards.

Flameblast Dragon, Ulvenwald Tracker can be useful for turning creatures into removal.

Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, Stalking Vengeance, Savage Ventmaw, Archetype of Endurance, and Rapacious One, all have either fun or useful abilities for the deck.

Overwhelming Stampede can be used as a nice finisher. Potentially Titanic Ultimatum too, if the deck can consistently cast it.

Happy gaming!

Keeping it under $15 should be really interesting, You should be fine with creatures but spells might cost you more.. I'm curious as to how functional it will become.

Here are a couple suggestions off the top of my head that should fit:

Naturalize, Naya Charm, Keeper of Progenitus, Terastodon, Fires of Yavimaya, Swiftfoot Boots, Drumhunter, Knotvine Mystic, Hull Breach, Garruk's Packleader, Gruul Ragebeast, Garruk's Companion, Behemoth Sledge, Hunted Dragon, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, Dauntless Escort, Paleoloth, Baloth Woodcrasher, Destructive Revelry, Stalking Vengeance.
