The Gitrog Monster Discussion

Philoctetes on Lord of the Flies

Hi there! Thanks for the comment!

I used to have Fecundity in the deck, and you very well may be right that it should go back in over The Gitrog Monster or something else, but I tried to err towards card draw that would be effective even without a sac engine running. A lot of times you need card draw the most when things are not going well, and the Frog Man and the rest of the gang mostly do that. I need to continue testing my draw suite, however, and could be that Fecundity is powerful enough when we are going off that it needs a spot.

Harvester of Souls in my opinion is just too expensive for that effect, I would rather include Fecundity if I'm going to add another of that effect.

I run something similar and janky, but I use Omnath, Locus of Rage. It feels like it nicely completes the engine Ramunap Excavator and The Gitrog Monster put together since you not only draw a ridiculous number of cards but you also put 5/5s elementals on the board that punish opponents once removed.

Wow! I love this deck! Reminds me of a deck I play at my casual gaming sessions!


Some things I would like to suggest,

1.) you might want to add some more removal to protect yourself from creatures. For me, Fatal Push, and Grasp of Darkness, comes to mind. I recommend adding a full playset of each.

2.) To make the deck even faster, maybe add 2-3 copies of Tireless Tracker?

Here's my idea:


-1 The Gitrog Monster

-1 Retreat to Hagra

-1 Retreat to Kazandu

-2 Appetite for the Unnatural (move to sideboard)

-2 Merciless Resolve (depending if you want to add tireless tracker)

-2 Heroic Intervention

-1 Collective Brutality


+4 Fatal Push

+4 Grasp of Darkness

+2-3 Tireless Tracker?

Again an awesome deck!

Best of luck on the battlefield!

Harashiohorn: But with the manlands, The Gitrog Monster, Tireless Tracker, etc. rotating, the lands deck isn't going anywhere.

Hi Baseballking123, in the competitive scene there are several good options to play a relatively budget deck. I say relatively, because I don't know what your limit is for a budget. But you could think of commanders like Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, General Tazri or The Gitrog Monster. There are more options, but to answer your question. Yes, it i possible.

Given that you like modern, I would try to first transition into more competitive EDH. A suggestion I have would be The Gitrog Monster. It is a fast combo deck that synergises with scapeshift, one of your favorite cards.

Scapeshift looks like it's a prime for The Gitrog Monster deck, but I do not have a good example of that.

I have a deck with elements of life gain, tokens, enchantments and card draw that is a merge of soul sisters and enchantress for commander using Selvala, Explorer Returned Token fun. Even without building it the way I have, I highly recommend this Selvala due to the ramp and card draw on a 3 cmc commander.

viperfang4 on [List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier

Since we're behind on some edits, I will make a list for tiers 1-2.5:


Prossh, Skyraider of Kher needs moved down to tier 1.5 as discussed.

Kess, Dissident Mage needs the deck changed to represent storm or have both listed like SBT

Tier 1.5:

Animar, Soul of Elements is suspect to be moved to tier 2, as discussed here.

The Gitrog Monster needs moved to tier 1, as discussed here.

Sliver Overlord needs looked at and will likely move here.

Scion of the Ur-Dragon is suspect to be moved to tier 2, as discussed here.

Tier 2:

Atraxa, Praetors' Voice needs to be moved to tier 3 until an archtype and deck is accurately found for her, as discussed here.

Azami, Lady of Scrolls is suspect for tier 1.5, as discussed here.

Derevi, Empyrial Tactician the deck currently listed is wizardball, the previous stasis stax list was not being updated, both are viable options and both need listed like SBT.

Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord has not been updated in over a year, especially with things like protean hulk unbanning we need to find a new list.

Maelstrom Wanderer is suspect to mvoe to tier 2.5, as discussed here.

Momir Vig, Simic Visionary this list is in the process of being updated, it should be updated to a brostorm paradox/ dramatic sceptor list that can cast it's entire deck off Vizier of the Menagerie. Afterwords it needs reevaluated.

Marath, Will of the Wild I have seen some blood pod versions of this that are better than our current list, it probably needs updated.

Rashmi, Eternities Crafter suspect for tier 1.5 based on conversations on the discord, on par with tasigur and GAAIV for control decks.

Nekusar, the Mindrazer can run a grixis storm shell and be a wincon.

Tier 2.5:

Ghost Council of Orzhova While this lsit is good, I think we could find better, seen ones that can run the bomberman infinite with the commander and a mono black like storm deck in the same deck. Likely needs moved to tier 2.

Inalla, Archmage Ritualist needs moved up as soon as the Laboratory Maniacs finish their brew, we missed a lot with her.

Sedris, the Traitor King this list has not been updated in a long time. I wonder if a grixis storm build with unearthed labman would be better or if it just needs updated to stick with kiki reanimator and add nooze.

Varolz, the Scar-Striped has proven himself to be tier 2 and needs moved up.

Xira Arien her storm list by buildingdeck needs moved here or to tier 2.

Look for other outdated lists and decks suggested that could go here.

@thegigibeast I hope this helps.
