Ruric Thar, the Unbowed Discussion

Pretty cool. But from the name, I really had hoped for Ruric Thar, the Unbowed.

Hah! Love the Titania's Song, I thought I was the only one!

Decree of Annihilation doesn't trigger Ruric Thar, the Unbowed and is a cantrip Armageddon. Epicenter, Impending Disaster, Boom and Ruination are great ways to turn the table in your favor as well, with all of your dorks. Trinisphere, Sphere of Resistance, Thorn of Amethyst, Lodestone Golem, and other tax effects to improve on the way the land destruction shuts off your opponents. Running more tutors for Magus of the Moon is also great, think Sylvan Tutor or Imperial Recruiter type effects.

@ARAMbo, p0megranates, deakmana: I think what I don't like about stuff like Orcish Lumberjack and Root Maze and Dryad Arbor is the inconsistency. Sure, they're ok sometimes, but sometimes when you draw them later they're actually terrible.

I actually had Dryad Arbor (of course, right?) but I got so mad at how it was basically a mulligan everytime it was in my opening hand I dropped it. I think it events out. If it is in your opening hand, you've mulliganed; if GSZ is in your opening hand (and dryad arbor is in the library), then you don't have to mulligan. I think on balance you can just cut it. Then I traded Green Sun's Zenith for Natural Order, since the only targets for either are Manglehorn, Ruric Thar, the Unbowed, and Kamahl, Fist of Krosa. So Natural Order is cheaper, generally.

Going to try Lodestone Golem as another hate bear / sphere effect. Dropped Knollspine Dragon since it has decreasing synergy with the stax plan and was becoming a win-more card. I feel like I need more stuff that can possibly interact with combos (such as The Gitrog Monster), so I'm swapping Shamanic Revelation for Lurking Predators in an effort to just flip Ruric Thar if someone starts to go off with Dramatic Scepter or something. Also should have strong value as a Green Mystic Remora. :)

Warriors are fairly aggressive, I would recommend cutting down to 36 lands.

Boldwyr Intimidator can help you get through with warriors, Iroas, God of Victory can help too.

Lovisa Coldeyes buffs your warriors while giving them haste, and Khenra Charioteer gives them trample (Dakkon Blackblade can be a fun warrior too).

Purphoros, God of the Forge can take advantage of the tokens you are making. Ruric Thar, the Unbowed punishes your opponents for playing non creature spells (he can hit you, but it is totally worth it).

Nature's Will, Bear Umbra, and Sword of Feast and Famine can help get those extra combat triggers.

I've made a pretty decent Najeela warrior EDH, there are more cards in the deck that I didn't mention that you might find useful.

I would definitely recommend taking a look at my deck, it might give you some more ideas (and it would help me out too ;P).

Noob question.

I'm new to EDH.

Ruric Thar, the Unbowed; Does his second ability trigger when he is in the command zone, or must he be on the battlefield for him to deal the 6 damage?

Thraximundar or, STAXimundar, with edict effects, other pain such as Kaervek the Merciless, Rain of Gore and as much annihilator and land destruction as you can cram in the deck in the Grixis colors.

As an alternative, Kresh the Bloodbraided. Same concept, just in Jund, which gives you access to Ruric Thar, the Unbowed along with Kaervec and Rain of Gore. Green also gives you access to Asceticism and Scavenging Ooze.

Silent Gravestone, Grafdigger's Cage, Arcane Lighthouse, Bojuka Bog...

Omen Machine is really good at hosing extra draw decks.

Hell, I just might build one of these decks now...

Ruric Thar, the Unbowed is a good add (2 copies) and drop Goreclaw from 4 to 2. Nice deck. Easy +1

DeadmauCinco, thanks for your comment.

A ton of versions of of this deck already exists, but I wanted to try one of my own.

The one you mentioned is not 100% mono green because it has Ruric Thar, the Unbowed and a lot of non green cards in the sideboard. Also, I am trying to abuse Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx as much as I can and I like Khalni Hydra a lot.
