Savage Beating Discussion


4 weeks ago

Hi, Regoober, thanks for your comments and good card suggestions. However, there is little room for redundancy in the list and the cards that I have chosen for damage doubling (Boros Charm, Duelist's Heritage, Berserk) all have strategic crossover into my 'Combat Tricks' section. Most of the time, a card only warrants a slot in this deck if it has a great deal of versatility.

As for Umbra/Assault, I am avoiding any infinite loops in this deck. I'm opting to play 'fair' for the sake of fun and personal challenge. If I added any other additional combat phase effect, it would likely be either Waves of Aggression or Savage Beating.

First off, I love the deck. Yeah, Probably a little heavy on the artifacts, but maybe that is the support Grenzo's Onion Army needs.

Etali, Primal Storm, Daretti, Scrap Savant and/or Koth of the Hammer If you're not opposed to planeswalkers.

Maybe Goblin War Drums Since you're going wide and wanna get through with some bodies no matter what (Bedlam may be strictly better for your meta, though). I didn't know War's Toll existed, but I use Mana Web occasionally for similar effect.

Neheb, the Eternal is a must for ramp from damage to play opponents spells, IMO. In addition, Things like World at War, Aggravated Assault, Savage Beating and, My favorite for hordes like this: Breath of Fury all get you exiling through people's decks and any chance of chaining together a winning combo. Stranglehold is nice, too if your meta loves tutors (like mine does)).

Happy Goading, my Mono Red Friend!

Reconnaissance is indeed great. Maybe something like Hammer of Purphoros to enable hasty attacks and an effect like Scourge of the Throne or Savage Beating to get in extra commander damage. Serra's Blessing is a cheap Vigilance buff for all your creatures, and a Cathars' Crusade gets stupid with Assemble the Legion.

You can also smooth out combat when you're at a disadvantage with cards like Comeuppance, Settle the Wreckage, and Fight to the Death.

Have fun!

I really like the creature list and amount of creatures. Maybe split your remaining slots amongst anthems/cost reducers and cards that will let you cheat more werewolves into play? Thinking of:

A perhaps a few combat tricks like Xenagos, God of Revels, Overrun, Savage Beating or Triumph of the Hordes.

Steely Resolve on werewolves might be useful.

Path of Ancestry and Cavern of Souls might be good inclusions. Maybe a Mana Echoes? Xenagos, the Reveler, Domri Rade, or Garruk, Caller of Beasts?

Happy brewing!

Update: Although somewhat flavorful, Savage Beating is just a win-more card in this deck, it never really pulled its own weight in testing.

Koth's race is known as Vulshok.

There are literally Vulshok on Savage Beating.

If you want to ramp, and want to swing with ferocious creatures, that might be really fun to include :)

Hi MegaMatt13, have you ever considered Savage Beating? With just 2 5/5 dragons you can swing for a lethal 40 damage in a single turn. I think it deserves a spot as a surprise win card. Also, Scion of the Ur-Dragon is an excellent card and tutor in this deck, when you attack you can search and copy a dragon for a specific situation. Balefire Dragon to wipe a board, Hellkite Tyrant to steal all artifacts and equipment of an artifact heavy deck, etc. There's also a silly combo with Savage Ventmaw and Hellkite Charger in which you can take a bunch of extra combat phases. If you have Scion out, you can search and copy Atarka, World Render to swing for lethal and win. Hope this helps :)
