The Gitrog Monster Discussion

Mightyhulk1 on Jund -1/-1 counters

One more thing, I figured you might like a new deck I created, (it's jund!) built around Ramunap Excavator + The Gitrog Monster- it's pretty powerful. Just wanted to share a fellow HOU jund build-around!

Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger Seems out of place here, I'd suggest playing an other Omnath, Locust of Rage. Why not add The Gitrog Monster? it lets you play more lands so there will be more landfall triggers for Tireless Tracker and Omnat (it gets lands in your graveyard for more easy delirium).

So your Splendid Reclamation plays will improve. You could also change Splendid Reclamation for Ramunap Excavator to get the same effect

Yeah it can be a hard call at times. My current decks are;

Atraxa, Praetors' Voice,

Sliver Overlord,

Nekusar, the Mindrazer,

Athreos, God of Passage,

Kruphix, God of Horizons(although this one is not playable yet), Talrand, Sky Summoner, and then I have been considering Kaalia of the Vast, The Gitrog Monster, and The Ur-Dragon. So many different playstyles I try to have, but I really do have to set a limit somewhere's at some point lol.

I suggest anyways you keep an eye on Commander2017, there is most certaibly going to be a mardu vampires deck on the way and that might be something to consider.

Hey, I'm not sure if it is possible to put the "based on so and so's deck" thing on a deck after it has been built. If I could I would pick your deck. If anyone knows a way to do that I would be interested in learning about it. The Aluren + Cloudstone Curio is a win condition in my deck that I have been toying with for over a year now. I found it here first and wanted to say thank you for that.

If you would please take a look at the cEDH monster you helped me build, it would mean a great deal to me. (I know shameless plug for my deck) I would really love your opinion on it though. I play in a different kind of meta with The Gitrog Monster combo, Zur the Enchanter doomsday, Captain Sisay paradox, Teferi, Temporal Archmage chainveil, and General Tazri foodchain decks. Highly competitive kind of thing.

This is my attempt to took what you did and make it something that can keep up with all of that: EzurggroTech

Thanks you so much for this!

Hmmmm definitely a cheaper 5 drop option than The Gitrog Monster I'll substitute it out to see how it plays out. I like how it allows the deck to explode wide late game. Thanks for the suggestion.

Well this is what I'm working with. I splash blue i the lands only because Ipnu Rivulet is great for setting up Ramunap Excavator, and makes Splendid Reclamation a very powerful mid-game card.

I tried to focus a lot more on the lands working with each other, with only the best nonlands to work with them. The Gitrog Monster is OK but unnecessary IMO, for example.

cyclinggamer on Deserts for Dessert

Archfiend of Ifnir looks like he is just sitting there as a big 5/4 flier instead of a cycling and discard beast that he is. You could replace him with more land specific to your deck needs. I'd look to graveyard protection cards like Perpetual Timepiece, sms have the archfiend come in SB with a package of cycling specific spells, to replace your dessert hate of The Gitrog Monster and Ramunap Excavator package.

Abandoned Sarcophagus works great to cast cycled spells from your graveyard.

I decided to convert my The Gitrog Monster deck after I decided that it was fun, but not what I completely wanted. I liked the self land destruction, but what I WANTED above anything else was dredge. So I added blue and decided to pick Sidisi, Brood Tyrant

Anyone have any tips? I know I need to stay on one deck, but this one I know I will. 3 color opens up so many opportunities and it has what I want (cough dredge cough). And yes I know Hermit Druid is usually a NO in Sidisi, but I picked her for her first ability and colors more than her second ability. The zombies are more... icing on the cake if you would for the more reanimator/dredge theme I'm looking for.
