Ogre Slumlord Discussion

precociousapprentice on Queen Marchesa: Politics, Aikido, and Control

I haven't played Fumiko the Lowblood since the earliest stages of the deck. It does mix things up at the table. I found that her ability was not as good as Goad, since creatures can attack you as well. With a full Fort assembled, Fumiko the Lowblood can be fun, but I found that with a full Fort up, I like Grenzo, Havoc Raiser better, since my deathtouch or evasive creatures could cause similar shenanigans, only with Goad instead, and Grenzo, Havoc Raiser also came with the theft ability, which was also fun. I feel like when I can avoid being piled on for playing it, I would almost rather not have a target out, since people find reasons to mix it up on their own, and putting Fumiko the Lowblood out makes it a little too obvious. A good fort does this by itself. I do occasionally think about either Grenzo, Havoc Raiser or Fumiko the Lowblood in place of Ogre Slumlord. I think I would go for Grenzo, Havoc Raiser in most cases, but Fumiko the Lowblood also fits the theme.

This deck seems really fun, and I love the idea! Definitely gets a +1 from me! If you're going for a rat-tribal like deck there are some great cards, like Door of Destinies, Marrow-Gnawer and maybe Ogre Slumlord. I would also definitely throw in Elemental Bond(in your maybe board).

I also noticed a few commander staples that you're not playing like Sol Ring, Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots and Command Tower etc. that are basically must-plays. You should also work on the mana-base a bit, as I was having a bit of troubles getting enough mana to play some key cards.

I'd suggest getting this to become a grixis control deck, in which removal, board wipes, and a bit of prison if possible, things like discard outlets (Call the Bloodline) into Ensnaring Bridge could be fun, or whatever floats you boat (Moat).

Some good pillow fort for grixis:

Fortune Thief

Circle of Flame

Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs

Dissipation Field

Jace, Architect of Thought (It is cheap because of the Duel Deck!)

Ogre Slumlord

Shipwreck Singer

Godhead of Awe (5 blue is harsh, but technically...)

Haunter of Nightveil

Kulrath Knight


Silent Arbiter

Platinum Angel

Platinum Emperion

Orbs of Warding

Ensnaring Bridge


I will make some new comments for the removal and board wipes later.

Remember: Try to alternate between Savra (cmdr) and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord to check goodness.

Just to remember: To remove:-Volatile Rig -Horizon Spellbomb-Murder-Korozda Guildmage-Woebringer Demon.

+++We might want to add+++:

+++ Ogre Slumlord+++ Something better for mana/ramp (I'm not really confident about the "Sac costs"... as most of those creatures and enchantments require a few mana to have "sac goodness". +++ Phyrexian Altar+++ Expedition Map+++ Myriad Landscape

My (again, inexperienced) concern about the Ogre Slumlord is that it triggers whenever any nontoken creature dies, which means when a boardwipe happens, we get a bunch of non-deathtouch rats (unless they keep it when the slumlord dies?) that makes our board state look more threatening than we'd like it to be. Am I incorrect in that assessment?

Yeah I guess you can describe it as carrot and stick- motivate your enemies to attack each other and deter them from attacking you. Avoid cards that draw hate your way if you can, but find ways to benefit from the other action on the board. I think Ogre Slumlord and Ophiomancer are two of my favorite cards on your list as they keep reproducing goodness/defenses.

Ogre Slumlord is invaluable in comparison to Pawn of Ulamog or Sifter of Skulls, in the sense that his ability triggers on opponents creatures as well as your own. He is well worth the higher CMC.

A critical mechanic of Yahenni of the Endless Offerings (EDH) is for opponents to be forced into sacrificing their creatures.

Equally as critical is for the player to also have creatures to sacrifice. As much as the utility of the Eldrazi Scions and Spawns is enjoyable, and as you mentioned invaluable in certain situations; it is important to have creatures to react to sacrifice triggers.

An Eldrazi Scion or Spawn lose their value when they are targeted with spells like Altar's Reap, or used for activated abilities such as Attrition or Vampiric Rites. Whereas a 1/1 Rat Creature Token from Ogre Slumlord I can sacrifice without a second thought.

This deck has a strong focus on knowing when sacrifice and when not to.

Again, I will still strongly consider Pawn of Ulamog in the future, and I do appreciate your time and recommendations.

Getting feedback or hearing more ideas is one of the best ways to craft the most intricate decks.

I agree with you completely, I ran both in a Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker deck. I originally had Ogre Slumlord but the mana the scions/spawns generate is invaluable! I only mentioned both because I ran both for redundancy
