Strata Scythe Discussion

Icbrgr on Tromokratis is CRACKIN' Skulls!

@Triton nice suggestions! i really gotta get me a copy of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx! i think Strata Scythe/Sword of the Animist could be future replacements for Hero's Blade/Hedron Matrix... i happen to own a copy of Thassa, God of the Sea.... any recommendations on what i would want to cut/replace with her?

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Rogue's Passage for more ramp, and a means of making Tromo unblockable. Sword of the Animist is equipment and ramp, and Strata Scythe provides a nice boost of power. Thassa, God of the Sea is pretty good in the deck for unblockable. Hope this helps!

Im very very new to EDH and just made a Tromokratis Voltron deck... these are the equipments im currently running

some stuff i wish i had was Darksteel Plate/Infiltration Lens/Strata Scythe and Argentum Armor

maybe some of those could do you some good?

Perhaps Rhystic Study or Mystic Remora can replace Tapestry of the Ages?

Infiltration Lens is hugely synergistic when Tromo swings in.

Darksteel Plate makes being blocked by tons of stuff negligible.

Strata Scythe is a go to in mono colored Voltron.

Rhystic Deluge seems crazy good for this deck. It effectively says "tap all your opponents mana"

Trophy Mage finds equipment, as does Fabricate.

Freed from the Real is basically vigilance.

A few more ways to get vigilance would help.

Because it's strictly better than a plains. Whether you think so or not it IS strictly better in almost every sense outside of Emeria which is a largely irrelevant argument due to the number is basics and the fact that Emeria is reduculously slow.

Lastly, it's not like you're running Strata Scythe so again, largely irrelevant.

As I said, it's strictly better than a plains. Period. Which is why everyone and their mother keeps suggesting it. There's a reason why it has an actual price tag.

This is a completely fine deck you got here, however some suggestions.

I feel there are better choice for buff spells out there

Vines of Vastwood and Untamed Might for instance

Strata Scythe and Rancor are also good choices

Finally, since most of your big guys already posses trample, maybe you should look for another choice for commander than Nyela? just a thought.

Terrible cards:





Bad cards:





Fine cards:




Good cards:






You need to add more cards that are good in EDH, and add some ramp beyond Sol Ring and Pearl Medallion. My suggestion for cheap ramp includes:

Hedron Archive, Mind Stone, Marble Diamond, Worn Powerstone etc.

Other cards you may want to consider are:

White Sun's Zenith, Hero of Bladehold, Sun Titan, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Mentor of the Meek, True Conviction, Swords to Plowshares, Return to Dust, Martial Coup, Oblivion Ring, Captain of the Watch, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Recruiter of the Guard, Heliod, God of the Sun, Knight of the White Orchid, Mirror Entity, Mother of Runes, Emeria Shepherd, Bastion Protector, Oblation, Secure the Wastes, Austere Command, Open the Armory, Decree of Justice, Caged Sun, Obelisk of Urd, Dictate of Heliod, Shared Triumph, Elspeth Tirel, Secluded Steppe, Buried Ruin, Ghost Quarter, Rogue's Passage, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Kor Haven, Divine Sacrament, Bygone Bishop.

I would cut cards from the "Terrible" bracket first. They have no place in most EDH decks.

Well, this list is a bit contagious!

It is risky, but Inquisitor's Flail could be another double damage dealer.

Strata Scythe could be good for big swings too.

Strionic Resonator does also double Drana, Liberator of Malakir's ability.
