Chandrian on The Gitrog Makes Landfall

2 days ago

I just finished my own list for a landfall Gitrog deck (altough I didn't want to take the dredge or infinite combo way). Some cards I might suggest:

  • Sword of the Animist to ensure landfall triggers
  • Reprocess allows you to draw a lot of cards by saccing lands, while also bringing them back if you have World Shaper or Splendid Reclamation at the ready
  • Baru, Fist of Krosa can pump your team pretty heavily when recurring your lands from the graveyard and also gives trample (this only works for your green creatures, note that opponents playing forests also pump your team)
  • I would suggest Evolving Wilds and/or Terramorphic Expanse because you get 2 landfall triggers out of it, plus you also get to draw when Gitrog is in play
  • Squandered Resources is an awesome cards for a deck like this, however it is maybe out of your budget

If you want I can post my list (or you can find it through my profile)

Kaleidescope on The Gitrog Monster - Non-combo Infinite value

Can I ask how many turns a game usually goes in your playgroup?

I was also curious how you set up your landfall triggers. Do you just let them build over time with fetches and Crucible of Worlds/Ramunap Excavator? Or do you try and setup a large amount through milling your deck with Dakmor Salvage at end of turn with 8 cards in hand or sacrificing a bunch of lands through Squandered Resources or Sylvan Safekeeper then playing Splendid Reclamation?

Looks great, my only suggestion is Squandered Resources. Good land etb combo with drownyard temple, lotus cobra, and amulet of vigor speaking of I take back my original sentence Amulet of Vigor and maybe Retreat to Hagra?

Any reason for not playing Squandered Resources? It's been an all-star in my lands-based decks with Gitrog. Plus you can replay any lands you sack with Crucible or Ramunap, and it can trigger Titania in a pinch, too.

I used to be all on the chaos deck train, but I've started to shy away from any chaos cards that don't help the game plan (ex. Possibility Storm in Mishra, Thieves' Auction in Zo-Zu, etc). That being said, you can often have fun and crazy stacks even in "normal" games.

Ex. Last week, I was playing Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper and there was a 4-color lands deck with The Gitrog Monster and Squandered Resources out. I was saccing things to Phyrexian Plaguelord to try and kill the frog, and we spent a good ten minutes each of us sacrificing permanents for value to get each other, and then he cast Second Sunrise and we did it all over again. It was a bit of a headache to work through how much value we could get, but at least 2 people at that table had fun with it.

Crucible of Worlds seems like it is an auto-include in this deck. Squandered Resources is insanely good with Splendid Reclamation particularly if you add Amulet of Vigor. Dark Depths also seems like an auto-include. My favorite combo in my frog deck is Archfiend of Ifnir with Zombie Infestation. I added Concordant Crossroads as I often find myself taking a turn in which I can clear all boards and created dozens of creatures but can't swing with them...
