Lhurgoyf Discussion

Firebones675 on No, I'm not buying Tarmogoyf.

Have you considered Birds of Paradise? Also with a deck name like that i feel obliged to suggest Lhurgoyf.

Swarm of Bloodflies would be good for this deck and could get big really quickly and Lhurgoyf would also be pretty good as well

Triton on Meren? Bitch Please.

Lhurgoyf will definitely find a place here, I'm kind of surprised it's not a popular card for Jarad. I know other cards outclass it, but it's just a 4CMC Nighthowler.

Pelakka Wurm also seems like a solid card too, I'll consider it for now. :)

BabyK on Meren? Bitch Please.

Happy to help. Another budget card would be Lhurgoyf. It's cheap, decent mana cost and unexpected to do much, but against certain Tasigur, the Golden Fang decks and decks with lots of cheap spells, it wrecks the board.

Also in budget, Pelakka Wurm. Gain seven, fling, draw. What's not to like?

chirz2792 on Best commander to abuse aluren?

@griffstick: Teeg is an interesting thought. Would it be better as a hatebears deck that uses Aluren to get around those effects or more of a combo deck?

@Necrotize: Momir and animar both seem interesting. Of the 2, which do you think would be better?

@Lhurgoyf: I hadn't even thought about Recycle. That's going to lead to some shenanigans. Thanks!

You know what else works well with Spy Kit Lhurgoyf?

So is the deck basically to get out Lhurgoyf as fast as possible and start beating with it or is there something else that you wanted it to do? That's a good place to start so I could actually recommend something.

Terranlord on Sidisi Sacrifice Abuse

At KaiserDingus. Sorry to get back to you so late and thanks for the comment! =) I've been busy with a lot of other hobbies and decks these past months, but Sidisi will always be my baby so you can bet I'll get back to you.

I am going to pass on the Lord of Extinction. Here is a list of the better cards that I would consider to be this cards "peers" so to speak, and those are what it is competing against for a deck slot. I grade them primarily on 5 things. The less mana they cost, the less I expect from them to get a good score. 1- mana cost 2- how fast they grow, (normal speed = Gets big with creatures in the grave)3- if they can exist without any cards in any grave 4- if they have their own graveyard interaction built in.5- Evasion

Lord of Extinction. 1= 5 mana. 2= Maximum X players. 3= No. 4= no. 5= no. Score 5/10.

Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord. 1= 4 mana. 2= Normal plus 2/2. 3= Yes. 4= Yes, Can be recurred. 5= No. BONUS WIN CON= Flings other beaters for ALL OPPONENT LIFE LOSS. Score 9/10

Boneyard Wurm. 1= 2 mana. 2= normal. 3= no. 4= no. 5= no.. Score 7/10

Splinterfright 1= 3 mana. 2= normal. 3= no. 4= Mill engine 2 cards per upkeep. 5= Yes. Score 8/10.

Mortivore. 1= 4 mana. 2= normal X players. 3= no. 4= no. 5= no. Bonus 1B regenerate. Score 6/10

Golgari Grave-Troll. 1= 5 mana. 2= normal. 3= no. 4= Dredge 6(mill plus recursion). 5= no. Bonus 1 mana regenerate. Score 7/10

Nighthowler. 1= 3 mana. 2= normal X players. 3= yes bestow only. 4= no. 5= no. Bonus Bestow for double uses. Score 7/10.

Sewer Nemesis. 1= 4 mana. 2= Maximum X 1 player. 3= no. 4= 1 card mill per spell cast by player. 5= no. Score 7/10. (9/10 if using Seedborn Muse + Wake the Dead for Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord win)

Lhurgoyf. 1= 4 mana. 2= normal X players. 3= yes. 4= no. 5= no. Score 6/10

All of the peers shown here cost less mana than Lord of Extinction with the exception of Golgari Grave-Troll and they all have at least some bonus perk outside of being a large body. While the lord grows the fastest, I typically only need a creature to have 25-30 power to win so getting EVEN MORE isn't as important as bonus deck synergy such as mill effects and recursion.
