ERoss8 on Tough Cuts and a Tide ...

Personally, Manglehorn Urborg Elf Bane of the Living and Prowling Serpopard (unless counterspells are a huge force in your playgroup) could be cut. I'd add at least two more lands (probably 4 more), to reliably cast my spells, especially with Pernicious Deed and similar loops. Elephant Grass is similar to Mystic Remora, but it acts as a Ghostly Prison+. Also, Strip Mine (and similar effects) can be kinda mean, but it’s a good way to end games and deal with Gaea's Cradles and Cabal Coffers

SynergyBuild on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

Nath is a popular discard-stax commander, that uses Necrogen Mists, Sadistic Hypnotist, Oppression, and Bottomless Pit along with a lot of general value cards like Root Maze, Manglehorn, Chains of Mephistopheles, Nether Void, The Abyss, Magus of the Abyss, green ramp like Birds of Paradise along with colorless rocks to pump its commander and other colorless stax options out onto the field.

The list can break parity with tap/stay-tapped effects using its massive tokens swarms and Earthcraft when under the effect of its own Winter Orb, Root Maze, Static Orb, etc.

Because the deck attempts to make each player discard lots of cards, Sylvan Library, Dark Confidant, Phyrexian Altar, Library of Leng, and other effects can synergies well to break parity.

Otherwise, the deck runs a normal Golgari-Stax deck, running black-tutors to fetch the colorless silver bullets like Sphere of Resistance against non-Prossh Food Chain lists like Tazri and green to make enough mana to still win.

Other notable cards sometimes run in this strategy are Mind Slash, Cryptolith Rite, Chord of Calling (with tokens it ends up decently), fast mana to cast Nath like Mana Vault, Lotus Petal, Grim Monolith, etc.


Ishkanah is the best golgari Food Chain list in the format, with Demonic Tutor, Grim Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Imperial Seal, etc. to fetch the Chain, and to fetch Eternal Scourge there are a ton of green and black tutors.

With Delirium so easy to get between fetchlands, instants, sorceries, and Lotus Petals, Commune with the Gods and other self-mill cards milling over creatures and artifacts, etc. You can reasonably make infinite spiders with Food Chain, and if you can pay Ishkanah's cost you win.

Hello, I have rebuilt your deck and I am very excited. I love your deck.

In the game rounds I have the cards Rest in Peace and Craterhoof Behemoth almost not needed. Does the deck really need the cards?

In addition, I made a few small changes:

+Root Maze (turn 1 very strong), -Rest in Peace

+Arbor Elf (can also untap Savannah or Temple Garden), -Selesnya Signet (Much artifact-hate in the deck: Null Rod, Kataki, War's Wage, Stony Silence...So i think, the creature is better, than the artifact)

+Qasali Pridemage (better for Yisan, the Wanderer Bard), -Reclamation Sage

+Manglehorn (Better to tutorn + Sustainable Effect), -Nature's Claim

+Gemstone Caverns (faster start possible), -Sunpetal Grove

(+Grasp of Fate (better for multiplayer), -Beast Within or Craterhoof Behemoth)

What do you think?

Black sun's zenith is a staple worth owning, but there are tons of cheaper boardwipes that work 90% as well. Crux of Fate, Hex, Deadly Tempest.

Harvest Season will usually be worse than Kodama's unless you run significantly more 1 and 2 drops. I think you could use more ramp cards in general. One with Nature will do some goddamn work in your deck and is a one-drop.

Infect could be nice. People will assume you're running it anyway. Triumph of the Hordes is a good $ option. Otherwise Tainted Strike or Grafted Exoskeleton. You're going wide, so Golari anthem effects could be good 1x Overwhelming Stampede, Pathbreaker Ibex. Beastmaster does it really well and I see you already run it. Is an awesome card to drop when you already have 7 creatures out.

You have a lot of ways to get damage to creatures and players. You might want to add in some equipment like Quietus Spike or Scytheclaw to take advantage of that.

Counting your car draw spells: Generous Patron, Deathreap Ritual, Skullclamp. These are all great because they will likely give recurrent value, but I would triple this overall count.

Reclaim, Regrowth, and especially Creeping Renaissance are some of the best cards you could run. Your creatures will be boardwiped. Being able to grab 100% of your creatures from the graveyard to your hand stwice is amazing.

As far as removal goes, Bane of Progress fits the counters theme while also providing a lot of removal that won't really touch you. Manglehorn is a low CMC body that has removal built in.

Thanks, that response was great. I have been following your deck building work for a while.

Gilded Drake and Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite are in the list I am trying to modify.

I am considering cutting Null Rod, Stony Silence, Sanctum Prelate, Runic Armasaur, and Ulvenwald Tracker. Consecrated Sphinx, Glen Elendra Archmage, Tendershoot Dryad, Sun Titan and maybe Idyllic Tutor would be the replacements.

There are no artifact based decks. I see the fast mana artifacts some. Grim Monolith, Mox Diamond and Mana Crypt are rare. Sol Ring, Thran Dynamo and Mana Vault are played. I never see Paradox Engine.

What are your thoughts on Static Orb, Crop Rotation and Nature's Claim?

The other list has eight means to tutor creatures and none to tutor instants. Caustic Caterpillar and Manglehorn are in the list. I don't see Blood Moon, Back to Basics or many of the oppressive enchantments. I do see a lot of Propaganda effects. Do you think changing Manglehorn to Reclamation Sage would allow me to cut Nature's Claim?

Weathered Wayfarer and Captain Sisay are both easily tutored options that can get Gaea's Cradle. Crop Rotation is not bad but I know you are not playing it.

Would creatures being so prevalent in my meta justify Hushwing Gryff taking Vryn Wingmare's spot?

Thanks for taking time to answer these questions. I know you have played Derevi for several years. Your insight into the deck is very informed.
