Ogre Battledriver Discussion
1 week ago
Hey there! Looks like a solid deck to me! There are a few cards that I would consider adding, though, mostly just EDH staples:
- Blasphemous Act
- Chaos Warp
- Reforge the Soul
- Temple of the False God
- Mind Stone
- Outpost Siege
- Vance's Blasting Cannons Flip
- Hammer of Purphoros
- Forgotten Cave
- Solemn Simulacrum
- Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx
- Ogre Battledriver
- Faithless Looting
- Zealous Conscripts (goes infinite with Kiki-Jiki)
- Dualcaster Mage
- Magus of the Wheel
- Mana Geyser
- Burnished Hart
- Dictate of the Twin Gods
And then some cards that work particularly well with Purphoros:- Rakka Mar- Flameshadow Conjuring- Tooth and Claw- Pia and Kiran Nalaar- Goblin Warchief- Goblin Matron- Ogre Battledriver- Embermaw Hellion- Burn at the Stake- Goblin King
Some cards that I would consider cutting:
- Dragon Fodder
- Krenko's Command
- Fiery Gambit
- Molten Birth
- Thatcher Revolt
- Generator Servant
- Harsh Mentor
- Kari Zev, Skyship Raider
- Zurgo Bellstriker
In any case, sweet deck! Good luck!

Comparing this list to mine has got me thinking about quite a few things.
-All the fetch lands that work on mountains
-Moggcatcher (I know others have suggested this card, but Im not sure what you think about it)
What Id (maybe) cut:
-Reckless Bushwhacker Ive never had any luck with it.
-Magus of the Wheel is super good but it usually takes a turn to set up and then it still costs mana to use. However, I think its probably still better than Memory Jar. Of course, both of these are probably worth running. Im just a little salty cause all I have atm is Reforge the Soul.
-I think your artifact package should probably be cut. Due to artifacts being all over cEDH, Goblin Welder is really strong even without the other artifacts you have, but I dont see Daretti, Scrap Savant being useful for how slow he is.
What do you think about all this? Obviously some of my suggestions shouldnt go in your list and some of my cuts shouldnt be made, but Id love to know your thoughts regardless. Thanks for your thoughts!

With a heavy Equipment theme you aren't going to have much room for utility. A such, all non-card-draw utility cards should probably be removal. I would include at least two board wipes (more is often better, depends on your meta). Blasphemous Act and maybe Rout are good budget options. Vandalblast is sick. I'm super big on enchantment removal so Return to Dust is S-tier outstanding. Not super budget but not expensive either. I like Ray of Distortion a lot. It's very mana-intensive but the fact that you can do it twice is awesome in EDH. Dust to Dust will be handy. Lots of artifacts in EDH. I kind of like Revoke Existence since artifact recursion is common.
There is lots of random utility to find out there. Reconnaissance and Dolmen Gate are usually great for aggro decks but your commander makes it far less necessary. Perhaps Brave the Sands and Always Watching . Fervor and Hammer of Purphoros are sick too. Ogre Battledriver is nice but not a samurai.

Ulasht was one of my first commanders, and is a great inclusion in my current Marath deck!
Some ideas for inclusion would be: Woodland Bellower and his toolbox friends Eternal Witness, Yavimaya Elder, and Reclamation Sage,Vizier of the Menagerie, Spellbreaker Behemoth, Ripjaw Raptor (really fun with Ulasht, because you can hit him a bunch of times and draw a bunch of cards), Ogre Battledriver, and Lifecrafter's Bestiary.
If you're running Omnath (another of my commanders :P ...and Oran-Rief Hydra benefits from this too), I would definitely make sure to include some fetch/ramp options (probably not a bad idea even without him given all your big x-spells...), such as Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Blighted Woodland, Wooded Foothills, Primal Growth, Skyshroud Claim, and Explosive Vegetation (you wouldn't need all of them, but the land ones are easy swap-ins).

I really like your set up. I may have to get myself a Dimir House Guard, Fleshwrither and Jokulhaups. I have a slightly different take on it: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/big-turns-engine/ ... Anywho, Living Death... That's a tough one. You may have to much life gain to ensure you keep getting your dethrone triggers. My knee-jerk response is Kokusho, the Evening Star. It contributes straight damage to all players and gains you life, sweet. However it doesn't have a lot to contribute to swinging... You have a good lineup for turning things sideways and loading up +1/+1 counters (Marton Stromgald, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Ogre Battledriver, and Urabrask the Hidden). Then creatures with those counters matter (Herald of Secret Streams and Oona's Blackguard). It's not that Kokusho isn't good in your lineup. Without Graft or something to help you throw silly amounts of counters on it without Dethrone, you need to swing and Kokusho doesn't do that for you. I can hear you already: "What about Unspeakable Symbol?" The three card combo is nice, but that's what I would do.

I'd go for something like Glitterfang over Torpid Moloch. How much does the Moloch do for your strategy, anyway?
You might also be interested in cards like Hell's Thunder, Lightning Shrieker and Ogre Battledriver. It helps to have evasion tacked on. I made an EDH deck with a similar idea a while ago that you might get some ideas from. Death of a couple stings

@greyninja Thanks so much for your suggestions!!! Momentous Fall, Ogre Battledriver, and Xenagos, God of Revels are all cards I want to add to the deck!! I think it'd really help out the fight theme! An I'll update it with some of the new fight cards from the SOI and Amonkhet sets!
