Peterzin on Kresh EDH

1 month ago

dragonforce60 I appreciate the suggestions but most of these cards aren’t powerful enough to be playable.

I’ll try to go through each cards and give a decent reason

Groundbreaker , Ball Lightning - lack of effect on board state, best case they do 6 damage to a single player which is nothing in web

Explosive Vegetation - considered running this however you are better off adding a farhaven elf, this will allow you to ramp earlier and have something to sac/ trigger to a like birthing pod or Mikaeus.

Hellspark Elemental , Lightning Serpent - same as ball of lightning

Doom Engine!!! - not bad but the 6 damage doesn’t do much, better off playing Wurmcoil Engine which will trigger more kresh, and also has lifelink

[ukabi drake - really just a dead draw 90% of the time, similiar to ball of ligtning

Scourge of Skola Vale - interesting effect however I don’t see the point of transferring ++ counters from one creature to another, this would to better in a deck with lots of walls for ex

Become Immense - most of our creatures are already large enough, you are better giving them something like trample or hexprokf, if you want something that goes good on big creatures I recommend Mage Slayer

Life's Legacy - interesting card that I heavily considered, ultimately you want to keep your large creatures around as that’s how you win games, fling is the exception as it’s at instant speed

Ultimately kresh is greater at getting big, and he goes greater with mass removal that you should already be playing, this deck really goes to try to solve the problem of kresh not having any self protection(like hexproof) or evasion. I like what you did with the fast attacking creatures that die instantly however these cards aren’t good when kresh isn’t around, so you are better of

the most hilarious card with Thromok is Insurrection but it's hard to get mana to cast both in the same turn. Mob Rule is a little more doable.

Predator Dragon is fun if your opponents think you can't cast your boss or that he can be chump blocked.

You NEED a Mage Slayer

K1ngMars on Shrek Fottimadre Jones

Il tuo mazzo necessita di un buon pacchetto di removal per far morire quante più creature possibili, in modo da rendere Kresh grosso, ed allo stesso tempo ti servono cose che diano evasion a kresh per fare in modo che riesca a colpire. Farò suggerimenti su cambi funzionali e cambi di budget, sia in più economico che in più costoso.

Valuta di trovare un posto per carte che diano colpo sicuro a Kresh, come:

Valuta di inserire qualche sacrifice outlet come (nella sezione terre ce ne sono altre molto forti):

Nella sezione terre ti consiglio:

Se con queste sostituzioni nella mana base finisci per avere più di quattro terre che producono , valuta di inserire al posto di una creatura ramp la Chromatic Lantern, che è stata ristampata da poco ed è scesa.

Cho-Manno's Blessing traded in for Divine Favor

Mage Slayer traded in for Soul's Fire

Are people counterspelling your boss since they can't target him? Price of Glory traded in for, what, Serra's Embrace maybe?

Thank you everyone for the suggestions.

Predatory Focus and Outmaneuver were exactly what I was looking for, Master Warcraft as well.

I hadn't considered Lure-like effects but looking at them now I will definitely try to fit a few in.

I'm not sure yet what the top end of my curve will be, but it is probably going to be something big like a Lord of Extinction or an eldrazi, so Mage Slayer may have a spot.

I hadn't thought of Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor but it could be a nice way to build up an army in case of a 1 sided wipe.

In terms of which direction the build is going overall, I'm not entirely sure yet. I'm thinking just a general toolbox with a whole range of answers for everything. At the moment, my saskia deck is human tribal but I just don't have fun playing it, hence the rebuild.

Thanks again for all the suggestions, f you have any others feel free to pass them on

I’m not sure if Meglonoth fits the bill for you since you deal the damage when it’s blocking not attacking, but Vigilance so you don’t have to choose!

There’s always Mage Slayer!
