As an additional to cast this spell, sacrifice a creature.
Search your library for a creature card with converted mana cost equal to 1 plus the sacrificed creature's converted mana cost, put that card onto the battlefield with an additional +1/+1 counter on it, then shuffle your library.

I did actually see the new Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath deck going around reddit recently and I am seriously considering it. The fact that you get a decent commander that also serves as an outlet is just so compact that it might convince me to switch off the big mana theme and go all-in on the combo with Food Chain lines and perhaps even Isochron Scepter. My biggest concern is that I lose a lot of meme value and I would have to cut a lot of pet cards like Wilderness Reclamation and Doubling Cube because Kruphix is no longer in the command zone.
I really want a Bloom Tender but the reason I don't have one yet is because $40-50 is quite prohibitive for a dork that taps for 1-2. If I were in more colors (especially 4-5) it would be more of a priority imo.
Freed from the Real is an interesting one that I haven't thought of before. I'm worried that right now because I have only Incubation Druid and Kiora's Follower as decent targets it might be a bit too dead, but I will add it and see how it does.
Thanks for your feedback!

Your primer is hilarious I really enjoyed reading it. I also like the deck. As you are going for infinite mana have you thought about switching to Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath as the commander? As a infinite mana outlet it would consolidate a lot of the extra combo cards to be able to run more interaction / other fun cards. Also I would recommend taking a look at Freed from the Real, Neoform, and Bloom Tender to go along with your Vigean Graftmage, and Incubation Druid combo.

Neoform is to fetch Spellseeker or Maniac/Oracle. Abolisher and the other half of a line is also useful, but if a piece is already out you can fetch a combo creature.

Very nice fish hulk list. The triple stifle is nasty for mirrors indeed, not just from stopping Hulk but also from cards like Survival of the Fittest and fetchlands.
- Grab Grand Abolisher Nomads en-Kor Cephalid Illusionist and any 1 CMC creature
- Breakfast that shizz, mill library with Nomads + Cephalid
- Flashback Dread Return by sacrificing Nomads + Cephalid + 1 CMC dork
- Grand Abolisher on field entire time makes interaction extremely limited for opponents.
- Thassa's Oracle comes from Dread Return, seeing 2 devotion (or more, but 2 from Thassa) on 0 card deck for winning trigger.
No Utopia Sprawl ?
Talk to me about Neoform . It seems like an odd inclusion to me but I see it frequently in hulk lists. Is it just for value for turning 1 CMC dorks into Dark Confidant or Gilded Drake or Grand Abolisher ?

Thanks for the tips! I'll look at your deck too. I suppose you're right about Neoform , it's just such a, cheap combo. I'd like to add Bloom Tender but it's an expensive card. I may use both Tishana, Voice of Thunder and Prime Speaker Zegana if I take out Neoform .

qjone003 I personally like the scepter lines better but that is because I have run decks that run scepter in the past and am use to how it works. I just build this deck and have had good luck with it so far. The only changes I made are a weaker mana base (too poor to afford original duals) and no Imperial Seal or Timetwister (for the same reasons). I also added Neoform , Faeburrow Elder , Incubation Druid and Freed from the Real . The games I have won so far have been thanks to these additions. Granted I am new to this deck but With Thassa's Oracle I feel like Neoform becomes stronger in this deck. I agree with zwells3 wait for the dust to settle and see what brewers come up with even is nothing gets banned / unbanned.

Megalomania The reason you're getting staxed out is because of greedy mana base and card choices in your hulk list.
- Weak card quality from running sac outlets AND running narcomoeba + titan AND running Body Snatcher
- Natural Order Academy Rector and Pattern of Rebirth are all pretty damn expensive at 4 CMC
- No infinite mana combo for Thrasios as an outlet to win
- Missing efficient draw pieces like Dark Confidant or Rhystic Study or Runic Armasaur
- Lol at Neoform inclusion
You're getting hosed on your mana base from Blood Moon because you run 8 outs for making non-red mana if you don't already have it (4 basics, 3 artifacts, 1 ESG). I understand that traditionally the list doesn't run heavy artifact mana base but not having diversified mana base allows a Blood Moon + Pyroclasm to end your game. I've always believed that to be a weakness of the OG breakfast hulk list and its evident here as well. This is also why I suspect you basically ripped the breakfast hulk list. You're running Tainted Pact mana base and losing to Blood Moon without even running Tainted Pact ahahahahahahahahaha
Tbh I don't suspect you're angle shooting anymore, just that you're bad. Which is better and worse in a few ways. Regardless, its a laugh you think we are too focused on flash hulk in a thread about flash hulk. I'm sorry the brain dead deck you play is the thread topic, but don't shift the conversation to "but the other fast combo does x y and z". After deflecting, you went for "Oh come on bro just play the archetype that shuts it down", then advocated for people to play the wrong style of deck to shut it down.
There aren't good options for attacking or interacting with the flash hulk package, besides aggressive mulligans for specific pieces. There isn't an archetype that shuts it down, just a handful of various quality cards without enough density for regular and consistent interruption. On top of the problem already existing, and the clowns who run the banlist not giving a shit, new printings are exacerbating the problem by allowing for winning hulk lines that hold priority until all the winning elements are stacked.
To answer your question about how much I lose, I lose all the time bud. In a format that is 1v1v1v1 you're not going to get a 50% winrate. The difference between you and me is that if I get absolutely BTFO'd by Blood Moon in my 29 land deck, I make edits to my deck to better play under Blood Moon effects. The problem with Flash Hulk is that if I get BTFO'd by the Hulk, I have to switch my deck colors to include blue to handle it reliably. Do you see the difference? That's why Hulk needs the ban.
StopShot humbled indeed. Thank you for correcting me.
