Ogre Battledriver Discussion

Kcucullen on Krenk that 3 times

Comparing this list to mine has got me thinking about quite a few things.

Suggestions:

-Defense Grid

-Siege-Gang Commander

-Red Elemental Blast and/or Pyroblast

-Goblin War Strike

-All the fetch lands that work on mountains

-Madblind Mountain

-Scroll Rack

-Coldsteel Heart

-Ruination

-Mutavault

-Herald's Horn

-Ogre Battledriver

-Geosurge

-Seething Song

-Moggcatcher (I know others have suggested this card, but Im not sure what you think about it)

What Id (maybe) cut:

-Vesuva and Thespian's Stage dont make sense to me.

-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.

-Priest of Urabrask

-Dualcaster Mage is questionable. Its not as good as Reverberate IMO due to CMC but I can understand why its tbere. Just not a huge fan.

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.

Chained to the Rocks, Oblivion Ring, and Banishing Light are versatile on a budget--as are the other cards with similar effects.

White is really good at shutting down commanders with things like Darksteel Mutation, Prison Term, Arrest, Pacifism, Faith's Fetters, etc.

There is also Crib Swap, Swords to Plowshares, and Path to Exile--budget willing. Chaos Warp is good in EDH. Very versatile.

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.

Boros Charm, Make a Stand, and Rootborn Defenses can save your board state.

Really, at this point the sky's the limit. You could do random stuff like Throne of the God-Pharaoh or Gift of Immortality.

Forgot to mention Mask of Memory when discussing card draw and equipment. Slate of Ancestry would be good in your deck.

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).

dizzierabit nice suggestion. I am using Ogre Battledriver for the same effect, but your suggestion costs one mana less, I have to weigh this vs. the extra devotion to trigger Fanatic of Mogis.

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!
