Krosan Grip Discussion

Gidgetimer on Overlooked card for potential card ...

Additionally if the third counter goes on during someone else's turn or you do decide to sit on it, Krosan Grip would make it simply "skip three draws". There are other removal that could hit it at 2 if your meta doesn't run specifically artifact and enchantment removal. Mortify , Putrefy , Anguished Unmaking , Pernicious Deed could all get rid of it. You might even just be collateral damage on an overloaded Cyclonic Rift .

Most sac decks rely heavily on their artifacts and enchantments... run more removal to get rid of these problematic cards. Beast Within , Bane of Progress , Krosan Grip , etc.

That card I also used back in the day. I think a card like that today would get a Krosan Grip pretty quickly. But it's a pretty strong card.

You can definitely make Omnath, Locus of Rage competitive. I have a friend who plays it.

Ramp is your best friend. And Sac Outlets are your best friend along with some wrath effects.

Purphoros, God of the Forge works wonders in the deck, especially along side the staples of Avenger of Zendikar and Rampaging Baloths .

Cards that you need to make the deck function better are Explore type effects: Oracle of Mul Daya , Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Exploration , Explore , Enter the Unknown , Journey of Discovery , Mina and Denn, Wildborn , Summer Bloom , Wayward Swordtooth ... These work to great effect in getting the most out of Omnath's triggered ability and might hinder your opponents' plans of sweeping the board.

Also, you should be running more lands than the usual EDH deck because you want to be able to keep playing lands.

Recursion is also what will assist in the control metas: Regrowth , Eternal Witness , Den Protector , Greenwarden of Murasa , Recollect , The Mending of Dominaria ... These will help you maintain use of the cards that get removed. Also it allows you to let your general go to Graveyard and get it back to cast it for regular CMC.

Some form of protection is necessary: Heroic Intervention , Ranger's Guile , Blossoming Defense , Lightning Greaves ...

As for sac outlets, you have a great one in Goblin Bombardment and Greater Good and also Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar .

You could also use some triggers upon a creature entering the battlefield: Electropotence , Impact Tremors , In the Web of War , Mana Echoes , Warstorm Surge , Purphoros, God of the Forge , Colossal Majesty , Elemental Bond ...

And of course you could use some of the staples: Sylvan Library , Krosan Grip , Constant Mists , Beast Within , Word of Seizing ...

As for some sweepers: Chandra's Ignition and Star of Extinction are good ones. Hour of Devastation does some work. Insurrection is usually a good game finisher.

The world is your "oyster" good sir! So have at it. And happy shuffling. Hope this helps.

CyborgAeon: Currently he's a clampable elf body that looks for Woodland Bellower , GoG , or Regal Force . Also comes in with Woodland Bellower to get either of the other two as we see fit. I have found Empath to be invaluable in the grand scheme of things.

As for removal, I've been dying to work in Natural State , Tribute to the Wild , Krosan Grip , and/or Emerald Charm (which can go infinite).

Soren841 is trying to convince me to run Kozi, but that's very questionable and would require loads of testing before I even remotely consider it. I'd really hate to draw into that card when I could get anything else.

The new GSZ will be going in, I just don't know in place of what yet. I've been barely sleeping wracking my brain on this deck. Though I think it's at the brink of becoming substantially stronger, which I didn't know it could be possible (ha! that's been the recurring mantra since I made this deck).

Is there a reason Caustic Caterpillar is used over Krosan Grip ? Seems like Cursed Totem is more likely to hose us with the former and the latter is basically impossible to interact with.

By tax, do you mean having to pay for each creature attacking? If so, Nacatl War-Pride is my go to for that situation. Ypu only have yo declare 1 attacker and use kamahl and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx to take someone out. Another option in a group game is using Hydra Omnivore against the player with the least defenses and making it big, then you can damage the tax player indirectly. As far as other suggestions, you can opt out cards like Krosan Grip or Unravel the Aether for creatures that blow up artifacts and enchantments, it would make it easier to tutor for those effects. Bane of Progress could be really good if it's a continuous problem even though I don't like having to blow my own stuff up.

There's quite a few cards that are specifically in the deck for better interactions within my playgroup that can be changed out for more efficient ways to get big mana. I've been looking at adding Umbral Mantle as a third option for infinite mana and Thousand-Year Elixir as a way to speed up tapping my dorks and potential for big mana with the extra untap. Hopensome of these help. Otherwise hit me back and come up with more ideas to fight the problem.
