Krosan Beast Discussion

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor on Idea for a Squirrel Commander

7 months ago

For those of you unfamiliar with me, I have a soft spot for squirrels in MTG. One of my first decks as a young kid centered around Squirrel Nest and Squirrel Mob . Unfortunately, the tribe only receives (black bordered) support once-and-a-while. I currently have a squirrel deck helmed by Patron of the Orochi , but I'd like to see a dedicated squirrel commander.

It is my personal belief that if squirrels are to ever get a legendary creature, it will be in the upcoming Kaldheim set. Though little is known about Kaldheim yet, one thing is for certain, it will be a Norse mythology theme. That theme opens up the possibility of a card pertaining to the god Ratatoskr. For those unfamiliar with the god, Ratatoskr is essentially a messenger god who travels the world tree, Yggdrasil. He exchanges messages between the eagle at the top of the world tree and the snake below the tree. Like most squirrels, he is also kind of a dick.

Now on the rare occasion WotC creates a squirrel related card, they tend to do it in a tangential way. Most squirrel related cards create tokens while most creatures who care about squirrels are Druids. The only two actual (black bordered) squirrels are Squirrel Mob and Krosan Beast . With that in mind, here is my idea for a legendary squirrels-matter creature:

Sk├║mr, Voice of Ratatoskr - 2

Legendary Creature - Human Druid

Forests you control have "tap : Create a 1/1 green Squirrel creature token. Activate this ability only once each turn"


I opted for a different route than the traditional +1/+1 lord. Thoughts, comments?

Krosan Beast doesn't really do much for you.

Aether Vial really only fits in heavy creature decks with similar CMC, which this really isn't.

Earthcraft creates an infinite combo with Squirrel Nest, literally letting you put infinite 1/1 Squirrel tokens into play at instant speed.

Beastmaster Ascension might be better than Coat of Arms, since you're going wide anyways so it's guaranteed to trigger and you don't help your opponents creatures. It also costs 2 less mana.

Oran-Rief, the Vastwood would be a great way to pump up your creatures. Since you potentially make so many in a single turn, this card can dish out a ton of +1/+1 counters, making your squirrel tokens more threatening.

Mutavault is another land that could benefit your deck.

Squirrel Wrangler might be a decent one of as a finisher.

Arbor Elf would give you some ramp that works well with Squirrel Nest, Swarmyard, and Oran-Rief, the Vastwood.

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor on Masters 25 Speculation and Wishlist

I think Wizards is doing a great job with M25. A lot of people seem to be up in arms about some low value reprints at mythic (which is silly because you want your value at rare and uncommon anyways), but I love the nostalgia factor wizards is throwing into this set. So far M25 is turning into exactly what I had hoped for, a big nostalgia trip.

That being said...give me a Deranged Hermit, Squirrel Mob or Krosan Beast reprint please!

Squall Line may be a better use of the slot then Hurricane

you say squirrels, but it seems Deranged Hermit is the only producer? seems like mostly green token fun (Second Harvest?)

no Nut Collector, Squirrel Nest, Liege of the Hollows, Acorn Catapult, Druid's Call, Acorn Harvest, Squirrel Mob, Krosan Beast or Chatter of the Squirrel ??

Earthcraft+Squirrel Nest and Druid's Call+Acorn Catapult are especially fun.

+1 just for pairing up beastmaster ascension with squirrels. the imagery is flawless! also, the deck looks really powerful, not to mention hilarious. might I suggest Krosan Beast, just because it's a big, badass squirrel :) have an awesome day!

Krosan Beast could be a killer rabbit.

Undergrowth could be a shrubbery

Definite +1

jellowsmurf on Mill Everyone All the Time

To make the most of your self mill from Sidisi:

Kessig Cagebreakers gets you a pretty nice swing
Orc Sureshot spot removes about anything, but if that's just not fast enough for you... Noxious Ghoul can clear the board lol.

To help mill everyone else, and then take advantage of it:

Extract from Darkness, and Dread Summons mills everyone and helps your boardstate.
Bonehoard or Necrotic Ooze takes advantage of everyone filling their graveyards.

In mill decks I like having flashback as a mechanic so even if I mill it away, I can possibly get some use out of it:

Morgue Theft
Creeping Renaissance
Tracker's Instincts.

Threshold is a mechanic to consider too, most are kinda meh, but they can work pretty well in mill decks:

Stitch Together can get stuff back.
Decaying Soil might not be worth the set-up tbh, but idk maybe.
Battlefield Scrounger Makes for a pretty big beater
Also to a lesser extent, the Monster Squirrel: Krosan Beast.

Stuff that's too weak:Battlefield Scrounger, Krosan Beast, Renowned Weaver, Necrotic Ooze (if only because people will normally kill it on sight due to it being a combo enabler), Ancestral Memories, Ana Sanctuary, Soothsaying, Cancel (at least get Undermine or something).

This deck could really use a few pieces of mass removal. I'm fond of Pernicious Deed and Black Sun's Zenith.
