Primeval Titan Discussion

Scavenging Ooze is not a threat.
(compared to other beasts that inhabit modern, like Tarmogoyf, Death's Shadow, Primeval Titan, Reality Smasher... etc. those are game winning threats, not frikkin Goblin Guide that can get +1/+1 counters, if you pay , and have dead creatures in graves)
Yes you can play it and play removal on the same 3rd turn, but it will stay the same puny little 2/2.
And then what?
Paying its cost 2x to grow it to be a 4/4 is not so great when it will still be murdered by Fatal Push, and it will still have its ass handed to it by the Hollow One casted for the sky high cost of
Of course if you build a deck that ramps and puts a lot of creatures into the grave it can become big (and do so reliably and at reasonable speed).
But that's the same territory as building a deck for Skaab Ruinator, and ain't no spike got time for dat!

Primeval Titan is banned in EDH, should it be on here?

AverageDragon, 7 mana is really that slow for a format this casual? If so I presume you are right. When I think about it, there's a lot of very aggressive commander out there so I must agree again. Primeval Titan, I'm pretty sure, even in a mono green environment, could be brutally fast.
I still think some cards should be banned, there could be some overwhelming decks. Even if punishing players for a unwanted playstyle is less effective at creating a good environment than promoting another playstyle, I still think a certain regulation should be considered. The only way to know is to play a lot of decks and test a lot of strategies, so there's no reason to act out of impatience. Afterall it's just an opinion so no bad blood :)

@Mr_Pony: Welcome to Magic!
Unfortunately, Door to Nothingness costs too much mana. By the time I can get , I should have already killed my opponent or they should be at a low enough life total where I can Lightning Bolt them. Either that or I've lost the game.
I play Kessig Wolf Run as my main mana sink, since I can use it to pump a creature to push damage through.
Door to Nothingness is more of a card you build your entire deck around (what is also known as a "combo deck"). There's this version that uses Primeval Titan to ramp into a bunch of lands, then Chromatic Lantern/Prismatic Omen to activate Door to Nothingness.

Thanks for the comments guys!
@Jafjaf5: I had looked at something more in that realm before with this deck:Face is the Place. That's What Forcemage Knows.. At that point it does become a different deck as using Aspect of Hydra, which is one of the big finishers in this version, is greatly diminished, as well as the deck having a whole different set of strengths and weaknesses. Thanks for the idea!
@wonderboyrox: The birds are there over some other 1 mana 1/1 ramping creature mainly to give another type of evasion on the board to be able to pump. The ability to to target a birds with Aspect of Hydra and fly over most blockers seems to outweigh the 1 power that one of the other creatures would bring. Surely, in some cases the other would be better, but in most, I am more happy to have the birds. On a much smaller scale, they can make the few sideboard cards that cost phyrexian mana (Dismember and Act of Aggression a little less painful.
The Arbor Elf and Utopia Sprawl idea is intriguing but runs into the issue of fitting it in the deck. I don't want to drop any of my proactive creatures to weaken my threats or Collected Company chances. I also don't want to drop any boosts or protection as I need a certain amount to have good chances of getting what I need in a game. The only option would probably be Noble Hierarchs and I would really hate to drop those, as they are deceivingly powerful. I guess what it comes down to is that I am not trying to ramp really high (such as in to Primeval Titan or something like that) and I believe that the pieces that I currently have work better with the surrounding cards.
Thanks for the ideas!

Baneslayer Angel was dumb just because it forever changed Mythics from "These are cards you don't want to see too many of in Limited or require you to build around them" to "You need these $30+ cards to be decently competitive in MtG." Then came Primeval Titan and its cycle.
In terms of how playable they are, Beguiler of Wills, Devout Invocation, Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded, Duskmantle Seer, and Archangel's Light usually send me into a fit of rage whenever I saw them opened.
Play-wise? Wurmcoil Engine, Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, Liliana of the Veil, Past in Flames, Angel of Serenity, Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver, Garruk Relentless Flip, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, and Karn Liberated.
