Lord of Extinction Discussion

Leifis on Landfill (Gitrog EDH w/ Pseudo Primer)

Playtesting is going well. I am finding Centaur Vinecrasher very underwhelming and will probably trade that out for Lord of Extinction or Rogue's Passage. I am also thinking of adding in Diabolic Intent but not really sure what to cut for it at this time. My biggest concern with my meta is a friend who plays a semi-competitive Yisan Chord deck. He often has Yisan out on turn 2, turn 3 tutors Sylvan Safekeeper and turn 4 tutors Scavenging Ooze which is a tough counter for me. I often have to decide whether I am going to race him or hold back and try for a wipe if no targeted removal is in my hand.

Ahmonket was kind of blah as far as the Gitrog is concerned, though I am interested in seeing how Shadow of the Grave may interact with this deck. I am also praying that Hour of Devastation will include a B/G land with Cycle in it. That would be amazing.

Mind linking your deck?

Hey great deck looks awesone. FYI in case you didn't know, Lord of Extinction's ability works while he's in the yard so you could scavenge him for 5 cmc and get a shitload of counters. Also I think Reyhan, Last of the Abzan would do well in your deck.

FYI Necromancer's Covenant technically came out before Karador. It's from Alara Reborn.

Either way, one way I've seen people spew out masses of zombie tokens is by using Ghoulcaller Gisa and cards like Soulless One/Lord of Extinction which works awesome with Karador since you can just recur the sacrificed creature over and over. Also, Vampire Aristocrat et al let you sac the tokens and then sac the aristocrat to Gisa for twice the number of tokens. Something to think about. White would end up mostly being for support/removal etc.

I looked at your list and I came up with the following suggestions you might want to consider:

If you need more help on this deck or any other Commander project, then give me a headsup on my wall :) Just click my name and post something on there.

It is always great to recieve an upvote on my favourite deck, which you can see here. Just click the 'Upvote' button on the left if you like what you see.

Enjoy the game!

dude, what are your thoughts on a 1x of Lord of Extinction, especially paired with Thought Scour?

I see.

My original build of the deck involved filully milling myself, casting Haakon, Stromgald Scourge and a Gravecrawler from the yard and using those and the Vengevine that they triggered to fire up a flashbacked Dread Return that would return a Dread Defiler that could then throw giant nonsense like a Lord of Extinction from my graveyard to their head.

After a while I realized this was just a lot more fragile and took a lot more mana than just having a single card, so now I have more space to run answers to graveyard hate, so I run Exsanguinate and Moonglove Extract as wincons.

Also worth mentioning: Worm Harvest goes infinite with Phyrexian Altar and Groundskeeper if you have enough lands in the graveyard.
