Rhonas the Indomitable Discussion
2 days ago
Hey i Have my version of mono green stompy on here too i love Rhonas the Indomitable but i would cut the Kalonian Tusker it is a bomb but no livability And Dryad Militant does screw over Creeping Chill due to the replacement efect aka not hitting grave but im trying out lead the stampedes in my build also the only reason young wolf is two copies is becuse it helps curve

Well Flutterby415, i use Contentious Plan cause I need some draw in the deck to make sure i can follow up my plays. Also, Roalesk is a finisher and a big threat that help close the late game, but having tried Rhonas the Indomitable , I'm still loking for better option for a big late game threat in case my crature got spot removed to often to have growned.

Sandwurm Convergence would be useful late-game. Brooding Saurian might be a good utility piece. Homeward Path is better but $$. Verdurous Gearhulk maybe? Rhonas the Indomitable and Predator Ooze might make good blockers.

Really nice deck dude ! One of my friend was looking for a solid Hapatra duel commander deck. Gonna give him this one as an example.
My only advices are : - cut Rhonas the Indomitable and Rhonas's Monument : no real synergy - add Fatal Push (black MVP in the format) and Earthcraft which could be a serious blast with your snakes tokens

I dunno, man. I'll tell you one thing - I really love Vorapede. I used to keep 1 in the deck (or sideboard, i forgot) when I first discovered it because it just seemed so good, but if you want an answer from my purely competitive standpoint I would say they just cost too much mana. The lower-cost creatures in the stompy deck are so good already at beating the opponent's face in, lol. Especially with all the help from the Rancor/Aspect/Vines etc. Then again, you just told me they have been working for you. If they are working for you in your specific play group /local meta then by all means, continue using them. One thing I would still recommend is to TRY replacing them for a more streamlined deck (4x the main creatures and like 1 or 2 flex 2-or-3 drops).
You could always try building a hybrid stompy/devotion style deck with mana dorks and all the good 3 drops (4x Leatherback Baloth , 4x Steel Leaf Champion -- possibly even Arbor Colossus , Rhonas the Indomitable and/or Nylea, God of the Hunt , Gigantosaurus , Verdurous Gearhulk and the brand new card Awakening of Vitu-Ghazi , etc etc etc.). And more than 1 Ghalta, Primal Hunger . It's a little awkward with only 4 elves as mana dorks, though... so you'd still wanna try and play some experiment ones or pelt collectors, I'd assume. But, I dunno. As I type this I feel more and more like this would just warrant going full Devotion and breaking from the earlier game plan with smaller creatures and more to playing cards like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Genesis Wave or that brand new card Finale of Devastation , etc...
- But I'm rambling on again, heh. Short answer, no, I think Vorapede is too slow for a deck trying to, ideally, win before you're even able to cast it. But if it works for you then it's all good. Just at least try dropping them for a bit and see what happens. One card that Corbin played in his video that you may wanna try is Groundbreaker . I would play 1 of those about 50% of the time and I really like it. Only downside is drawing a hand with all the goodies but your only creature being the Groundbreaker to start...

Dragaan I still whip it out around once a month, although this deck can race or fight the increased linearity and speed of modern, Thing in the Ice Flip is incredibly punishing to all creature decks, but fortunately Phoenix isn't huge in my local meta.
1.) Damping Sphere was absolutely tried but ultimately, like most 2 Mana permanents, is just too slow for what this archetype wants to do. You want to deploy threats every turn, not drop a 2 Mana enchantment that ultimately doesn't kill Tron or neuter spell decks. The best plan against those decks is to race them or remove their theats with Dismember . I've raced 2 Wurmcoil Engines, a Walking Ballista , and an Oblivion Stone in a game against Tron once, but only because I maintained my level of aggression and was able to pump or or outright trade with my opponent's threats. You really don't have time to durdle with hate permanents, unlike with mid-range or control.
2.) Ghalta, Primal Hunger and Rhonas the Indomitable have the same problem of if you have a big threat on board, you're already ahead. I have played Groundbreaker in the past prior to the printing of Steel Leaf Champion , and if your meta is more combo heavy I'd recommend 2 copies. For now I'm trying a lower curve to get under interaction and maintain velocity.
3.) The short answer is yes: Dismember is very matchup dependent, it has blank text against a variety of decks, but is incredibly useful against creature combo strategies. G1 you want to be as aggressive as possible: if the opponent has creatures, they'll use them defensively and one can pump past them. If the opponent doesn't have creatures, the pumps will outright kill them and your goldfish is more consistent. If one we're inclined to run maindeck Dismember, I'd cut 1 Vines of Vastwood and 1 Rancor to keep your creature density high, but only if the majority of decks you face are creature strategies.

This is one of the few solid stompy lists I've seen on the site that seems to still be actively updated. I don't know how often you play the list and where you play (online, local, or both), but I'd like to know your opinion on a few things.
1.) Sideboard: You aren't running any Damping Sphere at all in your sideboard. Have you tried them out and found them lacking? Or is it a local meta issue? Also curious if Tormod's Crypt is more a budget option or if you find it works better than Relic of Progenitus and/or Grafdigger's Cage . Also curious about Obstinate Baloth in the current meta.
2.) Have you ever tried/tested any of these creatures in the deck - Ghalta, Primal Hunger , Rhonas the Indomitable (usually as a 1-of and only when also running at least 1 Ghalta), or Groundbreaker ? Dungrove Elder is another one I'm always mulling over but I just cannot seem to make my mind up, but I see you have already voiced your opinion on that card in the comments above.
3.) Do you really feel the deck plays best with 0 removal game 1? I always felt the deck should have at LEAST 1 Dismember in the maindeck, preferably 2. Again, I haven't played much recently but I assume the Dismembers would be vital vs cards like Crackling Drake or TitI (which is everywhere atm and, once flipped, almost single-handedly wins the game for them).
