firestorms90 on THRO MOK [[Gruul Tokens]]

1 month ago

FWIW, as soon as I pulled a Rhythm of the Wild , I slotted it in my Thromak deck. For me, the first phrase was the important part, with the ability to give Thromak haste or an extra counter as a little extra gravy. I don't lean as heavily on tokens as you do, though, aiming more to generate a massive hellion and knock out player(s) in a single attack. Haste and trample were high priorities during my deck construction and I've worried since putting the deck together that I might have put too many sources of each in the name of redundancy, so having haste stapled to an ability my deck was lacking (creatures can't be countered) made the enchantment super appealing.

Looking through your list reminds me why I enjoy magic (commander, in particular) so much: two people can approach the same deck concept from vastly different directions and still have an enjoyable deck. Besides haste and trample, I opted for Mage Slayer effects ( Soul's Fire , Chandra's Outrage , etc).

Because I approached the deck differently, I can't really provide good answers for the other questions you posted in the forum, but I CAN link my Thromak list in case something there can inspire you.

loricatuslupus on Flip Flop till you drop

Nice deck. I always enjoy playing with my werewolves Howlin' With the Pack and it looks like you've got a pretty strong core. I'm not convinced by Burning-Tree Emissary , Dawntreader Elk , Mina and Denn, Wildborn , Radha, Heir to Keld or Zhur-Taa Ancient though. I don't think creature-based ramp is that helpful because, on the whole, most of your creatures aren't that expensive and playing multiple spells in your turn will just end up flipping your creatures back over! Plus plenty of your sorceries do the job. Similarly, I don't know how much work Chromatic Lantern is doing in a two colour deck compared to something like Gruul Locket that could at least draw you cards (vital for a R/G creature-based deck to keep the pressure on a la Hunter's Insight / Sixth Sense ) or cost reduction like Ruby Medallion / Rhonas's Monument ? Mage Slayer and Rhythm of the Wild are definite all-stars for me as well.

Peterzin on Kresh EDH

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

carpecanum on Thromok And Friends

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.

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?
