The Gitrog Monster Discussion

IrateWarrior on Advertise your COMMANDER deck!

I love playing tribal, my elves and wolves have worked well now im attempting snakes for flood the field damage, Any suggestions or cards you feel are useless :)

Entari0 Ironicly I recognize your deck and commented on it before haha. I still stand by the win con of Avenger of Zendikar Tooth and Nail and the big finisher himself Craterhoof Behemoth. with The Gitrog Monster lands its practically and instant win.

Spirits on Mizzix, the Storm EDH

Hey etheraldreamer, Inexorable Tide is excellent, see where your going there. The reason I don't run it is simply its CMC 5, I'm hoping to already be setup with Mizzix of the Izmagnus around there. Longer term you'll get more value playing a Inexorable Tide.

Austin_Smith_of_Cards, excellent suggestions. Lava Spike + Desperate Ritual + Izzet Guildmage is an excellent kill combo. Adding it to my description above. The only part I don't like is that the Lava Spike, standalone it's not that great. Desperate Ritual although a little under powered, is still borderline playable card. Usually I prefer combos where each card is okay on it's own, but not always, see Pili-Pala.

Stroke of Genius has been on the cusp, for a long time. I keep questioning whether to get it in there or not. Visions of Beyond seems like the best remove for it, but I'm so low on Isochron Scepter targets as is. I've had 2 scenarios in 7 games now where i've had to wait 2 turns to pull an instant with CMC 2 or less for the Isochron Scepter so I know that I need more targets not less. Curious Homunculus  Flip / Voracious Reader  Flip is more likely.

I have Scour from Existence in my maybeboard, Purphoros, God of the Forge is a key reason why Scour from Existence is key. Chaos Warp for me just doesn't do it. In play testing I'm still trying to figure out if 1) Play for my infinite combo, or 2) Have control to stop other combos is the correct play. Thus far I haven't lost (yet, but been at 1 life). Can't remember all the commander's I've faced (No Prossh, Skyraider of Kher yet so that would be a real challenge). Some commanders: Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge, Derevi, Empyrial Tactician, Breya, Etherium Shaper (seems to be the flavor of the month right now), Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Kaalia of the Vast, Oloro, Ageless Ascetic, Karn, Silver Golem, The Gitrog Monster, can't remember any others. So verdict is till out on that. It's VERY good.

Fact or Fiction is funny, I just took it out of the deck Friday to test some other cards in it's place. I very much missed it in this weekend's games. Fact or Fiction returning to the deck soon as I figure out the removals. I'm considering removing the Isochron Scepter, that would change up a few cards that are simply there just to be targets, but then again when I think of an Isochron Scepter + Counterspell or Isochron Scepter + Mystical Tutor or Isochron Scepter + Cyclonic Rift... hmm, how do I not want that recursion, or a Visions of Beyond! = Draw 3 cards.

All Excellent suggestions, any or all should be in the deck. I'm still trying to figure out my fringe cards. Training Grounds maybe.

Almost definitely The Gitrog Monster. Haha

On a serious note, I think Thalia from Innistrad would be a pretty decent planeswalker. As would Griselbrand.

Very cool combo, take my +1. If you can't combo finish in the mentioned way, i think some late game option seems important. You could try Archfiend of Ifnir and The Gitrog Monster. These two plus noose can be a one-sided sweeper. And you can still combo finish after that.

buildingadeck on Staples?

Right, but that is still circumstantial based on the deck list or meta. Like in The Gitrog Monster, Dakmor Salvage is a staple, but that is not the case for any other deck. Ad Nauseam is a staple in any black deck that has the right curve.

NINJAxPENGUIN92 I threw in Worldly Tutor and Splendid Reclamation. They do help a ton. THe reason I did not take out Animist's Awakening is because of the spell mastery ability on it which lets you untap the lands, plus it hits both basics and non-basics. I will also be making so much mana from The Gitrog Monster, Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix, and Kruphix, God of Horizons that I can play Animist's for at least 7 or 8. And finally, I decided to leave out Omnath, Locus of Mana because I don't want to have to focus on a single color of mana that will just turn into colorless as the turn ends. While Omnath would be good in a mono-green deck, it would not work as well in mine, because I am primarily focused on Kruphix Reserves. Thanks for the suggestions though! :)
