Rith, the Awakener

Whenever Rith, the Awakener deals combat damage to a player, you may pay {2}{Green}. If you do, choose a color. Put a 1/1 green Saproling creature token into play for each permanent of that color.

Rith, the Awakener Discussion

Have you checked out the gaea's cradle championship edition... its only $50 and gold cards are totally legal in commander. Just a thought, I took the dip this week on my first cradle. Yay!!!

Anyhow great deck and its always great to see the underused commanders. I actually made a Rith, the Awakener deck that has a lot of memories for me too. Keep up the foiling!

Dragons should pick from:

Utvara Hellkite , Scourge of Kher Ridges (could be a good wipe for the board, 2x mana for ur, 4 mana to do 4 damage to each creature), Nicol Bolas (wipe someone's hand turn 6? yes, please), Hellkite Overlord (Big damage), Tyrant's Familiar (single creature killer), Scourge of Nel Toth (direct return ability), Ojutai, Soul of Winter (this is a maybe, gives vigilance), Eternal Dragon direct return ability, Dragon Mage Drops your hand into graveyard plus drawing 7 cards..risky af given it help others, Chromium, the Mutable you can actually pay 2 on ur to make him hexproof with this card..could save Ur in time of need, Bladewing the Risen this guy is weird idk if i would put it in because enter the battlefield abilities don't help Ur, Balefire Dragon fuck yes, Atarka, World Render Huge damage. low toughness, Vorosh, the Hunter 6 counters for Ur, Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire a little risky but seems to be worth it, Teneb, the Harvester yes yes yes, Silumgar, the Drifting Death give ur hexproof, Rith, the Awakener many tokens, Palladia-Mors, the Ruiner hexproof trample vigilance, O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami potential permanent killer, Numot, the Devastator destroy lands (probably should be left out), Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius draw a card, Intet, the Dreamer I think he is really good, Hellkite Tyrant could steal you a bunch of artifacts, Dragonlord Silumgar steal a creature a turn if using ur. steal a creature if putting out permanently. good for removing a particular blocker, Crosis, the Purger good against mono decks.

DemonDragonJ on Ravnica Allegiance: Spoilers and Speculation

Judging from the past several sets, will all angel tokens now have both vigilance and flying, or is that something being done for only those sets?

Also, the original Ravnica block had Rakdos Pit Dragon , the Return to Ravnica block had Hypersonic Dragon , and now, this block has Skarrgan Hellkite , meaning that the Boros guild is now the only red-aligned guild that does not have dragons (in fact, there are no pure red/white dragons in the game, at all: Rith, the Awakener , Numot, the Devastator , and Oros, the Avenger all have a third color), so will the Boros eventually have dragons, as well?

ZendikariWol on Enchantment Voltron Commanders

First of all, it doesn't need to be voltron. I can go wide with enchanted creatures too. Still, I want to make an enchantment voltron deck but I don't know which commander I want to use. Here's who I'm considering so far:

Tuvasa the Sunlit

Estrid, the Masked

Tana, the Bloodsower plus Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker

Zurgo Helmsmasher

Ruhan of the Fomori

Any of that cycle of legendary dragons (probably Dromar, the Banisher, Rith, the Awakener, Vorosh, the Hunter, Numot, the Devastator)

Storm Crow

Of course, new additions are welcome if you can make a convincing claim for them, but note that I play in a fairly noncompetitive meta, so decks that want to win immediately and shut out all interaction are off limits.

I second Marath, Will of the Wild, by far my favorite and very versatile.

If you're looking for something more Timmy-ish, I would go for Rith, the Awakener. There's also Tana, the Bloodsower + Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa

Sorry for the late reply but yes, it has done absurd work. I originally had it in because I didn't have a Gaea's Cradle when I made the deck and I decided to keep it in when I got a cradle. In this deck, Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip does the following: (1) dig four cards for an enchantress, god, or saproling funtime creature, (2) trigger enchantress effects out on the field, and (3) flip after a single Rith, the Awakener trigger. If I have it in hand, I generally try to get Rith out first, which means you will have enough mana to use Rith's ability then cast Growing Rites in the same turn.

yeah. that's true. 'cause you can run Slimefoot, the Stowaway and Thallid Omnivore from Dominaria in the colors from Abzan. so that's pretty neat. My friend combocatastrophy167 is going to build a Saproling deck around Tana, the Bloodsower partnering with Ravos, Soultender from C16. with those as your commander, you can use both Naya ánd Abzan in one deck. so you can run Ghave, Guru of Spores ánd Rith, the Awakener
