Tetzimoc, Primal Death Discussion

dehli on Tezzeret, Master of the Brawl

2 weeks ago

I've been having a lot of fun with him! He's really powerful once he gets going. Mishra's Self-Replicator and Sai, Master Thopterist make him amazing. I think Hostage Taker is a great idea! I could exile an artifact or creature for two mana (as long as Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge is out). I think I'll also put in Tetzimoc, Primal Death for more creature based removal.

That's a good point about One with the Machine . So far, I've cast it for 5 with Gilded Lotus and 4 with Traxos, Scourge of Kroog , and the third time I kept it in my hand because I didn't have a good artifact on the field. I might swap it out for Jace, Ingenious Mind-Mage .

I'm still experimenting with it. Let me know if you decide to build it! I think focusing on creatures, artifacts, and planeswalkers is the way to go because of Tezzeret's affinity.

Well, Jace did get a Triumph after all. But even w/ (Finale of Promise), I still don't know if Sorin vs Nahiri will ever end in a way besides either or both dead on the spot.

Anyways, I'm trying to edit up two decks at the current time to achieve their Max Competitive status (Only 35%. -_-), & my Tetzimoc, Primal Death Deck is almost done as well; I just need 7 cuts; I'll handle this myself.

Despite this, nobody seems to be itching on my ( Ezuri, Claw of Progress +1/+1 Counter Deck.) & I'm going to have to ask AlwaysSleepy again to find more stuff for a Doomsday Package. I only have 3/5 bits confirmed. I just need 2 more; and/or a way to crack the pile open.

All that, set in stone, I'll have to wait on MORTAL ENGINES Vorthos for now... God be damned if Hazoret becomes an Eternal God... X/

Just updated the OP. I'll ask AlwaysSleepy one more time for the Doomsday pile; as I now realize, the Exile Zone thing is just asking too much. 3/5 cards in the pile are already shown. Though I wonder if anyone wanted to help w/ the other Deck still in the works of being Cut & Revised (The Deck). Also, Who to choose alongside Tana, the Bloodsower ? Akiri, Line-Slinger , or Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder ? From there, I'll start the Equip-Voltron Project. That said, I'm almost complete w/ the Tetzimoc, Primal Death , deck, & I'm liking it. But what to do w/ all other things mentioned earlier? Any ideas?

This is going to be a long one. So I'll have to make what I'm saying brief.

Yep, Ezuri, Claw of Progres. With a low Competitive Scale, 5 cards to cut, & potentially replacements; I wonder when WAR's Walkers are known for Static abilities more terrifying than mere Emblems, & that's in Uncommon alone; I'd like to get some cuts/replacings of actual cards. Something tells me, this can be better, but I dunno where to start w/ such Ascendancy... Any ideas would be great.

I am currently trying to make a Tetzimoc, Primal Death deck on my own, though even though I need no help, progress is EXCRUCIATINGLY SLOW, but do believe I can at least do that myself.

I also plan to make a Partners-Based Naya () Equipment-Voltron Deck. Tana, the Bloodsower is confirmed as Partner 番号1 (No. 1), & Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder as 番号2 (No. 2). I'm actually on a bind w/ this actually; but I wonder how to make this kind of deck Equip-Based, & Voltron/GoLion based.

Expect a lot of Equips; Why ol' Bruse is there, when he doesn't truly support the strictly Equip subtheme for Voltron I dunno...

1000% Spark Storm (EDH Superfriends Primer)

Commander / EDH* BMHKain


& yet again, I'm working on a Superfriends deck; even as I cancelled the whole primer idea...

Also, if anyone wanted to know the Doomsday Pile in ; I might as well get 2 specific of one of the following...

Tormenting Voice + Second Sunrise + Conjurer's Bauble + Lion's Eye Diamond + Grapeshot & Faithless Looting as the card to crack open the pile.

Yep; I might as well get 2 Lion's Eye Diamond .

All these decks still need help; & I'm still working on trying to make a LUDESIA themed Vorthos/Melvin Deck...

So, anymore ideas?

Garruk, Embodiment of the Hunt

legendary planeswalker - Garruk

+2 Put up to two prey counters on creatures your opponent's control then, look at the top X card of your library where X is the number of creatures your opponents control with prey counters, choose a creature or land card from among them and put it onto the battlefield.

0 put a prey counter on target creature then, target creature you control gains first strike until end of turn and fights any number of creatures with prey counters.

-3 For each creature your opponents control with a prey counter, create a 4/4 green and black Beast creature token. Each of those Beasts fights a different one of those creatures.

-9 Destroy target player

create a non-planeswalker card that uses prey counters.

Tetzimoc, Primal Death is a creature that uses prey counters (just so you get the general vibe of how they have been used before).

Command Beacon is relevant in Tetzimoc, Primal Death , since it's one of the few ways, if not the only way to enable him as a commander if we are speaking in jank terms of course lol.

Also, Soren841, you are misconstruing the "context of cEDH" with that of your own opinions. Like I said, it is not bad in Gitrog, but it may be bad for other decks. Different perspectives yield varying opinions. I want to drop this discussion on that note without you coming back and saying it's bad again. We understand how you feel about it, you don't need to restate it again.

I like the idea, but I believe you will loose pretty hard to anything creature based, e.g. white weenie, golgari, merfolk, even boros angels and similar. If you use your burnspells to kill creatures, they won't go into their faces. If you don't, you most likely get overrun, as you are not as fast as a traditional RDW or Burn deck.

My suggestions: A) either go all in on captive audience to win the game and put in some bordwipes mainbord like Ritual of Soot or even Rakdos, the Showstopper or Tetzimoc, Primal Death . However, the card you want to cut for that is most likely sword point diplomacy, so you go down a choice card.


B) cut captive audience. I know, it is another choice card, but 7 mana in a mostly Burn Deck is something you never want to reach. Your Opponent should be dead before. Maybe you can put in in your sideboard against control as a finisher, this way it is technically still in your Deck . Loose a few lands, put in another damage source like Viashino Pyromancer or Sovereign's Bite and you should be good to go.

In any case, even if you don't like those suggestions, I recommend swapping firey cannonade in your sideboard to ritual of soot, as it kills Wildgrowth walkers and generaly creatures with counters on them.
