Marath, Will of the Wild Discussion

DrukenReaps on The Druken Enraged

1 week ago

Got some good games in last night. I really need more enrage since the most enragers I had at a time was 2. The deck is hilarious though. I got Druid's Call on Stuffy Doll and then used Domri Rade to fight a 9/9 and got 9 squirrels and did 9 damage to the chosen opponent. I couldn't stop laughing at that. Later Blasting Station came down for infinite....

I also want to change more activators into Earthquake effects. Preferable repeatable ones. So once Rivals of Ixalan hits I'll include most if not all the new enrage and try and cut the activate down to 10-ish cards. Having Marath, Will of the Wild and Mirari's Wake made activating enrage really easy so I should include other mana doublers too. Marath did some serious work.

I gotta say, I think the limited environment for Rivals will be MUCH better than Ixalan. The tribal synergies are still very strong, but I feel one has more agency to branch out from the tribal synergies. It is no longer tribal or bust IMO (excluding U/W fliers of course, that deck is always good).

I am pretty disappointed that they reprinted Colossal Dreadmaw, Raptor Companion, Sailor of Means, and Legion Conquistador. Only the Conquistador makes sense for draft/sealed environments, but the rest seem lazy.

EDH Dinos is looking well supported, now the question becomes...who is the best Dino commander? My money is on Marath, Will of the Wild with Gahiji, Honored One and Gishath, Sun's Avatar tied for second.

Merfolk now has the additional one drop it needed. There are two new ones too choose from, but I think Mist-Cloaked Herald is the superior option as Jade Bearer sadly can't target itself. I fully expect to see this deck to perform in Standard.

There are a bunch of interesting cards spoiled today, but these are a few I find particularly intriguing:

I don't think I have seen an ability like this before, but I think this guy will be quite strong in limited.

Premium removal that also triggers enrage for . Considered me enthused.

What a punchy little fellow

This is a very interesting card, likely not that good, but an interesting design none the less.

Overall I think this set looks pretty good.

Gleeock Let me preface by saying I do like Zacama, not as much as Gishath, Sun's Avatar, but it's a pretty cool dino.

I don't think the issue is being immediately wiped. The problem is that it's an ETB effect. So if it gets countered, your lands don't untap and by the time you get the mana to cast Zacama, I'm sure any blue mage worth their salt is going to hold a counter for such a big beater with all the effects. It also has to be cast so it's not like you can cheat it in with Gishath and get to untap everything.

Cool card, not sure it's going to see any standard play. Commander is the main draw here, but I don't know if I want to run this over something like Marath, Will of the Wild for instance. I will however put this in my Gishath EDH as one of the 99 and see how it does.

bendjohnson I was thinking the same thing. It's been a pretty exciting set so far. I may opt for the 1 of every card option. I'll see when it gets closer to release day.

@Greyninja I was thinking Mono-Green, not Gruul. :P The ideal place for Polyraptor is in a deck with Marath, Will of the Wild because you could repeatedly ping it to make it bigger.

Thinking about Marath and Enrage...I may consider building everyone's favorite moose with this in mind.

DrukenReaps on Reanimators?

3 weeks ago

So recently-ish I built The Druken Enraged with Saskia the Unyielding as commander but I found Marath, Will of the Wild after who actually adds more than just colors to the deck. Saskia's purpose is purely colors and one funny interaction where I can name myself... while Marath can act as an "activator" for the deck's enragers.

The problem is I lose and all it's reanimating goodies which the deck doesn't need but it makes things run smoother.

Could you guys name some good reanimators in ? Thanks, I've been having trouble finding some that are reusable.

Thank you for the comments and upvotes so far, everyone! :) I really appreciate them all!

@KeelHaul10: I've got the Marath, Will of the Wild precon, and I've played it a few times, but I'm still not sure on how to focus him or build with him. I like your suggestion, though, and would be more than willing with tinkering with some kind of build with him. I'll take any and all suggestions on how to focus with him. I've looked around at some other builds with him, but I'd really rather not build one like everyone else does, cause that's just no fun. But I understand he tends to be rather powerful?

@Darkshadow327: Herald's Horn is in the maybeboard/sideboard; I went back and forth between that and Vanquisher's Banner, and I ended up going with the Banner for the card draw. I could add the Horn in, but am not for sure what I'd take out. I checked out your build, and I like it. Titanic Ultimatum appears especially nasty as long as it doesn't get countered (but that casting cost!). Privileged Position is a bit more expensive than I want to pay right now, but down the road I'll consider it, for sure.

@airbornezenith: Those are great suggestions, but I figured with what I had going on with Call of the Wild and the like, I didn't think I need them. I'll see how it keeps playing out, though, and those cards could very easily work their way in. That, and I subbed my Citanul Flute into my Dragon precon for the time being...

So it looks like you've gone the route of '5 power matters' which is fun for Naya, but if you're still tinkering around, you could build an enrage tribal deck with Marath, Will of the Wild. Throw in giving indestructible to all your dinos, and you've got an easy to abuse system of pinging Raptor Hatchling or Ranging Raptors for hilarious ramp and devastating damage.
