Shana42 on Needing help with golgari sacrifice ...

6 days ago

Hi, I am trying to put together a golgari reanimator sacrifice deck and I am having a lot of trouble shaving it down to my 99. Currently I am trying to decide on a good list of tutor cards I currently have Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Intent, Fauna Shaman, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Buried Alive, Eldritch Evolution, Dimir House Guard, Jarad's Orders, Liliana Vess, Perilous Forays, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Rune-Scarred Demon, Tooth and Nail.

If you could help me decide on a good list, want to help shave other cards out or have a few suggestions on cards to add that would be wonderful.

Perilous Forays can get crazy.

Perilous Forays might help you with that mana base a bit.

If you can get them Primal Growth and Perilous Forays are great for turning Saprolings into lands.

Don't want to flood you with suggestions, but I have a Ghave token swarm decklist that might help you out with card ideas.

After looking at your list I came up with these suggestions you should really consider:

If you would like to see other EDH decks, you can always check the ones I play which are present on my profile page. I like to play with THIS deck the most of the time. An upvote is always appreciated :)

Have fun on T/O and if you ever need EDH advise, you can always summon me. Glad to help out.



Rzepkanut on Get MaziREKT

Hey Triton, i have a Mazirek deck I've been working on you might like to look at. I have everything custom categorized... I actually just ordered a dozen or so of the cards in the maybe board, so i know a bunch of cards will upgrade soon. Including Brindle Shoat, Qarsi High Priest, Genesis Chamber and Perilous Forays... As far as big picture stuff, i think you could run some more mass resurrection spells like Rise of the Dark Realms (You know how hungry this deck gets, by mid game the grave is stacked.) Maybe more premium sacrifice fodder like Hooded Hydra & Hangarback Walker. Manifests are super great too, especially with Whisperwood Elemental. Personally i haven't had success with decimator, and its ability overlaps with the commander too much for me (i know trample matters but Tuskguard Captain can do that for cheapo, and I'm underwhelmed by that idea too). Also in my description i talk about the way the deck plays out best for me. I don't want to burn all his best fuel up without getting enough value. I always save Mazirek until I'm going to go big and hopefully win right away. There are so many sacrifice effects that can happen in one turn for no mana, you can catch people off guard. Happy gathering.

Come Drink the Kool-aid with the Cult of Mazirek!

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!

A very fun(semi far-fetched) combo for multiplayer, for your commander is Equip Blade of Selves and have Mirror Gallery on the board. Assuming you have 3 opponents, when you swing there will be 3 copies of it on the field, so all of your white and green creatures will have at least a +6/+6 if they are both colors.

Another thing you can add to this combo would be a sack outlet like Altar of Dementia, so before the end of combat you sack all those copies made from the Blade of Selves, they mill and if you have Perilous Forays use the tokens to get land.
