Krosan Tusker Discussion

ratto on Deck Cycling the Cycling Deck

This is a thing i also want to do with the new cards and your idea, to tutor and than cycle, seems pretty sweet.

Maybe Landcycling is something for you : Twisted Abomination, Krosan Tusker, Wirewood Guardian, Shoreline Ranger

The deck is pretty solid, but I would recommend adding a Kor Spiritdancer. She is great for the deck, I would replace it for Krosan Tusker.

ClockworkSwordfish on Ruric Thar Beat Down

Mana ramp can be important and you may find it works for you, but I find with Ruric, it's best to obsessively run as many creatures as possible. The trick is to find creatures that can do what you want your nonland cards to do - you have the right idea with the mana dorks and the magus, for instance. I'd try to push it, though, with things like Fierce Empath, Heartwood Storyteller and Krosan Tusker. Arashi, the Sky Asunder and Jiwari, the Earth Aflame are creatures that can be used as removal when needed. Tempting Licid and its brethren can be an aura without Ruric Thar blasting you.

The only noncreature, nonlands cards I'd run are things like Domri Rade or Call of the Wild. Once you have enough of a density of creatures, Garruk's Horde, Vizier of the Menagerie, Oracle of Mul Daya and Courser of Kruphix can provide great card advantage.

Well I shall be placing one of those Pyramids in each of my EDH decks. Who doesn't like a net 4 mana Gilded Lotus? Albeit one that takes a couple turns to get going.

Sunscorched Desert is interesting for sure. It plays very nicely with Kefnet.

Vizier of the Sands and Shefet Monitor both look great (gotta love an improved Krosan Tusker).

That artwork on Grim Strider + it's flavor text are fantastic. Kinda wish it was slightly lower costed though (like Death's Shadow), but that would probably push it into rare territory.

Sorry didn't read that list carefully enough! :0S

There is also Kavu Lair, Dragon Mage as other card draw options.

Valley Rannet and Krosan Tusker are unusual, yet interesting choices. Early on they can be used to find land. But if Mayael turns them over with her ability, they can still be put into play as a creature.

Krosan Tusker while he fills your hand with two cards, the extra mana from Magus of the Candelabra will usually be what ends the game for you, he isnt a wincon himself, but its the difference between being able to use almost all of your mana with no regrets and not being able to. For example:

Turn 1: You start with 6 lands and Magus of the Candelabra, you play a forest and pass.Turn 2: You draw Kamahl, Fist of Krosa, play Magus of the Candelabra, play a forest.Turn 3: You draw a forest (5 in hand), you play a forest and pass.(you know how slow this kind of deck is early.) Turn 6(?): Play Sasaya and flip them. You play a forest if not more by now.Turn 7: You pay all but X mana where X is your lands to turn them into 1/1s and overrunning them with Kamahl, Fist of Krosa, untap all your lands and then tap one or two of them overrun even more and win.

Or its extra mana for kickers, its just a really really good amount of utility, compared to two cards (which you have other cards to get you.)

I agree that Azusa, Lost but Seeking wouldn't really shine in this deck without bigger changes. She only gives as much as she's given and doesn't generate any advantage on her own. If this deck had some Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip, Krosan Tusker, Life from the Loam, Yavimaya Elder, type of ramp it would be ideal, but without it she'll just only work well enough with Oracle of Mul Daya and Lotus Cobra.

This deck is better suited to something like Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger
