Oblivion Sower Discussion

Deathtrap0012 on U/G Fog Ramp

Updated left some fog in and added Oblivion Sower and Nissa's Renewal for the extra ramp if you get stuck in late game while gaining some life as well.

Conduit of Ruin has a nice combo with Sanctum of Ugin and Oblivion Sower is one of the best colorless 6 drops. I know you're concerned about price but Wurmcoil Engine is out there.

KurtySpice thanks for the useful suggestion. I was considering Reality Smasher over the Matter Reshaper, you think taking out Oblivion Sower would be better?

Decrepit_Angel on Paradox Scepter Storm: cEDH Primer

I have decided to build a similar deck (never ran storm before, but your list was very inspiring). Out of curiosity, do you think it would be worth including a backup win condition in case Aetherflux Reservoir somehow gets exiled? And if so, what would you cut for it? I play against Eldrazi quite a bit and I would be very sad to see an Oblivion Sower take my only win condition. I saw in your other list a discussion for Codex Shredder which seemed compelling enough to warrant my attention. And I guess Laboratory Maniac is also a possibility but he doesn't really synergize with anything in the deck other than if you have already made infinite mana and drawn your entire library. Either way +1 for the excellent primer.

Triton on Mina and Denn Gruul Agro: First deck, help wanted!

1 month ago

WrathofCod I switched to Omnath, Locus of Rage because he is a very powerful general. He does have a significantly higher mana cost than Mina and Denn, but what he does is worth the high mana cost. Plus I use a ton of ramp in the deck, allowing me to get him out with ease.

Glacial Chasm is a great card to abuse with M&D because you can play it, then bounce it back with their ability an play it when the board isn't in your favor. If you are worried about the lands being sacc'd, you can play cards like Splendid Reclamation or Groundskeeper; or if you have it, Crucible of Worlds.

I like any card that gives you a body whenever you play a land (for chump blocking and attacking), which is why I suggested Sporemound. It does, however, have amazing synergy with Perilous Forays, as you can sac the tokens produced by Rampaging Baloths, Angry Omnath and the mound for a large number of landfall triggers (it's super awesome when you have another token generator out). If you want to be able to fetch out every basic land in your deck, you can combine Perilous Forays with Amulet of Vigor and Lotus Cobra; and to a lesser extent, Stone-Seeder Hierophant. Fertilid does a similar thing with Retreat to Kazandu as the above combo, but requires more mana.

Descent of the Dragons is a fantastic board wipe imo! I was considering adding into Angry Omnath because you can attack with your elementals and then main phase 2 blowing them up with Descent and bolt people to death. In this deck, I think it'll be pretty good if you have a bunch of 1/1 creatures out since you can attack, and then blow them up for 4/4 fliers. There are some other board wipes that would be good in this deck, such as Blasphemous Act, so depending on how you feel, I think the latter should be considered first but the former is a great option too.

I think the eldrazi do pretty well in here, as you can play land/ramp into tokens and then play those, I think it'd require a bit of testing, so it depends on the outcome of games. Oblivion Sower has synergy, allowing you to play lands that you exiled with him for more landfall triggers.

As for some obscure cards in the deck, I love Signal the Clans as a tutor. The randomness makes it enjoyable too. Oran-Rief Hydra gets ginormous over time, same with Undergrowth Champion.

For cuts, I'd recommend cutting mana dorks since you mainly want to ramp via lands due to the value you get from them. This also allows the deck to be less reliant on your commander too. Burning-Tree Emissary seems rather mediocre for EDH (she's amazing in Modern and Pauper though haha), along with Plummet and Naturalize. Paragon of Eternal Wilds also seems a tad mediocre from its boost and effect (you have Skarrg Guildmage to give all your creatures trample).

This deck is coming together very well, no problem and thanks for the upvote on the primer!

Austin_Smith_of_Cards on Grenzo, Havoc Raiser

Break Through the Line accelerates your creatures and helps get those triggers off of Grenzo.

Bedlam ensures every creature you attack with will consistently trigger Grenzo's abilities, and makes swinging for lethal a lot easier.

Oblivion Sower rips more cards off your opponent's library, and is also a nice big creature.

Pyreheart Wolf is another cheap, resilient creature that gives all your attackers evasion.

Berserkers' Onslaught is another card that presses the offensive by giving your creatures a powerful ability.

Beetleback Chief and Siege-Gang Commander each spam out tokens, allowing you to go wide and get as many triggers off Grenzo as possible.

Rogue's Passage has an ability that works well in this list.

Frenzied Goblin is a cheap 1-drop with a relevant ability.

Legion Loyalist has an ability that's absolutely incredible with a token swarm. Also can be played early on.

Courser of Kruphix helps filter your topdeck, and has synergy with Shidiqi with a high toughness value.

Kaervek the Merciless falls into the category of multiplayer punishment with a similar effect to Vial Smasher. With opponents at low lifetotals, sometimes he completely locks their ability to cast their better, expensive spells.

Oblivion Sower is a high-cmc creature with a high toughness, which makes it powerful with each of your commanders. Its ramping ETB ability is pretty nice, too.

Rampant Growth is another great ramping spell, although you might not need it since you already have ten sources of mana ramp.

Mina and Denn, Wildborn could replace Rites of Flourishing in order to apply the ability only to yourself, but your list might need the card draw. In which case, Phyrexian Arena is another strong option.
