Creature — Elephant

When Terastodon enters the battlefield, you may destroy up to three target noncreature permanents. For each permanent put into a graveyard this way, its controller puts a 3/3 green Elephant creature token onto the battlefield.

CyborgAeon on Vannifar Evolution 101

So currently there is a lot of interest in pod-cEDH. I spent a few weekends brewing & quickly grew tired of trying to calculate which 1-drop creature I could use to polish off a 5+ card flash-hulk chain. I had a slew of ideas and many attempts to find the right line & then I quit.

I like complex lines & unique styles of play that aren't 'punch with tymna&dorks, Draw a win' (even though it's actually just stupidly strong). Vannifar is unlike Gitrog - where usually every single card is worthwhile and has a place in the loop. In Vannifar currently a fifth of the deck is just dead cards. That's 1/5 cards sucking to draw, with only Brainstorm & Whirlpool Drake (by the way - this is a SPICY include - nice one) to fix that.

Most hulk piles use roughly the following cards: flash>hulk>body double & viscera seer>karmic guide>Reveillark This is a very basic, fairly efficient hulk-pile. It uses six dead cards, of which are not massively interchangable, and will usually suck in hand except for in fringe cases.
Most cEDH decks require a 5 card MAX in order to win. Whereas (and this is no slight on your part) vannifar lists use far beyond that efficient number of slots in order to play like it's a real pod deck.

It's down to the Vannifar community (and that includes you now) to hunt for a way to make pod decent in cEDH, as I believe that there's a great combo out there in simic that can be achieved.

greyninja on Atarka world render edh deck ...

Uhhhh this is a really open ended question haha. You should browse the various gruul decks on here, as well as edhrec.com for ideas

I'm running Omnath, Locus of Rage and it's really fun. He takes advantage of something most decks do anyway: ramp. He also punishes boardwipes with his Lightning Bolt ability. Sometimes I'll flood the board and swing all out, then cast my own boardwipe to burn my opponent(s) for the final blow

Xenagos, God of Revels is another commander I've used in the past. His strategy pushes more towards "going tall" with a few big creatures rather than omnath who wants to "go wide" with a pile of creatures. Xenagos is one of the best options too since he's harder to remove than normal creatures.

There's the usual shenanigans like Avenger of Zendikar and Craterhoof Behemoth paired with Tooth and Nail for a surprise win. I like Triumph of the Hordes too for an insta win

There's combat tricks:
Aggravated Assault + Savage Ventmaw
Aggravated Assault + Bear Umbra + creature
Aggravated Assault + Nature's Will + creature
Aggravated Assault + Sword of Feast and Famine + creature
Aggravated Assault + Grand Warlord Radha + creatures
Aggravated Assault + Selvala, Heart of the Wilds + creature with power 7 or greater
Hellkite Charger + Bear Umbra
Hellkite Charger + Nature's Will
Hellkite Charger + Sword of Feast and Famine
Hellkite Charger + Grand Warlord Radha + creatures

Gruul also has a ton of control options. Beast Within , Terastodon , Woodfall Primus , Decimate , Balefire Dragon , Blasphemous Act , Reclamation Sage , Sunder Shaman , Deus of Calamity , etc etc

Have fun! I hope you'll take a moment to check out and upvote a couple of my decks! Cheers!

This primer has been immensely helpful to me for building my own list; well structured with helpful updates over the past month or so! While I had 2 combos before (the main finisher in this primer and a Protean Hulk combo), I settled on a way to include the hulk as a potential route to the finisher (Pod Hulk to Terastodon , fetch Spellseeker and Eternal Witness ). The one you use here is just as effective, but this felt like a slightly more linear path towards the final state without having to change Body Double and start a new chain (also allows you to destroy all lands, if that's a concern).

Here's the link to my decklist; it's my first cEDH build, so I would really appreciate any feedback you might have!

I think you should consider running Beast Within along with Terastodon , as they are both upgrades over your current removal spells. I think you should consider adding Emerald Medallion to help smooth out the curve a bit more. If it were me, I think I'd consider taking out Bow of Nylea ...yeah, it gives deathtouch, but you've got creatures that are big enough to kill just about anything, anyways. It might be a slot better suited for Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip. I'd run Rishkar's Expertise over Shamanic Revelation , and Shamanic Revelation over Hunter's Prowess . Crop Rotation , Hour of Promise , and Tempt with Discovery are all spells that can help you get to Reliquary Tower .

Looks like a fun deck full of fatties, for sure!

A lot of the cards don't really do anything. They are just big beatsticks. I would recommend replacing them with cards like Terastodon or any of the eldrazi.

Hey covingtonjt,

Here might be some cards you can consider using:

Most of these cards are super cheap to grab and would definitely boost up the amount of value you can use from Roon. Favorite Bant card of all time is Wargate , it can grab you any permanent from your deck and since you are running Eternal Witness you can grab it back from the grave to reuse again! Same with Chord of Calling as well.

Hope that can help and feel free to ask for any more advice if ya need!

I don't think i have much use for those cards.
Budget reanimator decks use Footsteps of the Goryo to reanimate them, and that is where cards like Ashen Rider shine. If i would want a "FINISH HIM" bomb of the top of eldritch evolution, i wouldn't run Moldgraf Monstrosity as even cards like Terastodon (destroying my own lands) are better options - probably i would go for something like Avenger of Zendikar or Liege of the Tangle...

(and i have no clue why would i want to play terastodon...)

To me (at least) Void Winnower look like a more fun, but ultimately more easily removed Iona, Shield of Emeria
