Spearbreaker Behemoth Discussion
11 hours ago
Garmads I actually ran things like Myojin of Life's Web , Spearbreaker Behemoth , etc., before I trimmed the fat and streamlined the combos and tutors. Myojin feels so good to just play out and then get some sick card draw off of grothama or greater good or whatever. I'll take a look at your list and let you know if I have any opinions worth sharing haha. I view all commander decks from a CEDH perspective, so my first thoughts will almost always be "well this takes up 5 card slots but you can go infinite if you swap out these two and then just replace these 3 with removal/tutors" and so on.

Hey man, sorry I couldn't comment until now. Love the list so far. I'm also honoured to receive the mention in the title :) Mayael the Anima is a commander I have written essays about on this site -- she is a creature-based commander that rarely will cast one from your hand, and allows you to approach the game from a draw-go style of play.
Novablast Wurm synergises with indestructible effects, probably the most famous being Avacyn, Angel of Hope , and Spearbreaker Behemoth , which is see is already in. It looks like heaps of the creatures are solid, I think what will be good is deciding what type of instant / sorcery / enchantment package you want to run. For me, I found running a lot of removal was fairly redundant, as my big creatures usually won the trade off anyway. Over time I have shifted my non creature package into a variety of cards that seek to further the win strategy of the deck. Card draw doesn't bother me too much, as I usually have a full hand, and merely Mayael into what I need. I chose over time to focus more on recursion with Creeping Renaissance and Greenwarden of Murasa . But if you double down on removal, it means your creatures will punch through more often.
A terrific budget inclusion is to run an Illusionist's Bracers . Bracers when equipped to Mayael gives you TWO activations.

Played this deck a few times yesterday and had some trouble dealing with "Indestructible" creatures (specifically, Soul of New Phyrexia and Spearbreaker Behemoth ). Thinking about adding Bonds of Mortality and maybe Hour of Devastation and/or Dismember . Any other ideas?
Also thinking about cutting down some of the more expensive dragons for cheaper ones (as painful as that will be). Going to try to include Damnation as well.

I'm trying to make my Nikya of the Old Ways deck stronger and meaner. I don't think it will ever be competitive but at the moment it feels too predictable. Looking for more creatures with extra utility like Inferno Titan or Spearbreaker Behemoth instead of straight aggro like Ghalta, Primal Hunger or Pathbreaker Ibex . Recently added in some of the spoiled cards from War of the Spark. Need some ideas.

Wave of Vitriol is pretty great where you have so many basic forests.

Thanks for these suggestions, Hexaflexagon. I'm not too worried about tutoring, as its mainly meant to be a casual deck with a fun theme. I had thought about Nimbus Swimmer , but just went a different direction. I do like Spearbreaker Behemoth , but doesn't fit the tribe, but is great support. I could definitely see adding Murkfiend Liege , especially for untapping Leviathan and Island Fish Jasconius .
The mana base is as it is mainly because of budget. I just can't afford to go get $80 lands, and some of the better ones I have are going in more focused decks.
Thanks for taking a look!

Have you considered tutors such as Worldly Tutor and Mystical Tutor , which might help the consistency of your deck? Nimbus Swimmer , Prime Speaker Zegana , Spearbreaker Behemoth , Murkfiend Liege and Beast Whisperer might also be good for this deck. Also, you might want a better manabase with Breeding Pool , Misty Rainforest (if you have the budget for it), and Hinterland Harbor .

Love the concept! gota couple suggestions, figured I'll accordian them to keep from filling up the whole page.
Predator, Flagship is costly, but lets be honest - mono-green doesn't care about that. giving flight for troops to evade or block, anti-aircraft cannons, and the tractor beam to lift up enemy ground-pounders, this colorless removal engine is worth evey mana spent on it.
Arena + Combat step: Declare attackers. Before blockers, activate arena, Choosing one of your tapped attacking creatures. the creature picks a fight before blockers, potentially giving a 2-1 for you if they block afterwards, but otherwise taking out a blocker and still getting all their damage through.
Genesis is amazing for recusion, if that's your thing (I know it's mine, but not everyone elses), and it's a 3 drop if you hard cast it with Her fluffiness on the field.
Trolls of Tel-Jilad offers regen for your forces (or allies, in exchange for favors...)
Krosan warchief acts like a mini trolls of T-J for beasts, and reduces their cost as well. more a niche card, but worth mentioning if you end up going that route.
Weatherseed Treefolk is fragile, but returns to hand when killed.
Phytotitan is even more fragile, but returns for free
Masked Admirers is a card drawing chump blocker. while it doesn't get the cost reduction, it definatly will dish out the damage over a game with trades. and the card draw for ETB is icing on the cake.
Gurzigost is a wierd huge guy that smashes face, all for the low low cost of ... recycling your graveyard. oh no... /endsarcasm
Ulvenwald Hydra grows based on your land base, and fetches a land as an etb trigger. added bonus: has reach to deal with fliers.
Oran-Reif Hydra grows to monstrous sizes as the game progresses. not all that exciting, but cheap ($ wise)
Dungrove Elder is completely worth the G mana cost once you hit 4 lands, and will only get bigger as the game goes on.
Terra Stomper , Carnage Tyrant , Chameleon Colossus , Kodama of the North Tree , Kalonian Behemoth , Gaea's Revenge , and Ancient Ooze just do what they normally do with efficiency: smash. they aren't pretty or fancy, but they are cost efficient before your general's discount, so they smash hard for cheap.
Skysnare Spider has the two most important keywords for green multiplayer: vilgilance and reach
Hydra Omnivore lets you get damage through defenses of players by ignoring that player entirely and focusing elswhere.
Indrik Stomphowler and Conclave Naturalists might be good replacements for reclaimation sage, with you commander out they cost the same. Destructor Dragon acts the same on death, but hits planeswalkers and lands as well.
Woodfall Primus is a solid (abet later game) removal that returns to work again.
World Breaker acts as an exile, and is colorless to boot. added benefits are reach and recurrable.
Wickerbough Elder gets the cost reduction, despite being a 3/3 base when cast.
Wolfbriar Elemental lets you dump green into a token army of 2/2s if you need to spread out the love or create some chump blockers. quantity has it's own quality sometimes.
Vorapede is a undying buggy with vigilance for 3 when your general is out
Thornling is a solid all-round stomper that is hard to deal with, via indistructable and increasable toughness.
Thrun, the Last Troll is another hard to deal with threat: hexproof, uncounterable, and regenerate means not a whole lot can touch him.
Spearbreaker Behemoth can act as a duribility booster by giving indistructibility
Krosan Drover is a good card for the really expensive creatures, giving another cost reduction.
Ulvenwald Observer is a solid card-draw engine for the deck when things die
Nessian Game Warden lets you sift through your deck based on forests in play
Brooding Saurian is typically just a sideboard card against control matchups, but worth mentioning all the same.
Stone-Tongue Basilisk is a cheap ($ wise) little guy that can field-wipe an opponent if you time a swing right.
Kamahl, Fist of Krosa should go in every green deck that he can. this goes double for mono-green. Overrun as an repeatable instant? check. wrath countermeasures? Living Plane that only hits opponents for G per land. totally worth it.
