Creature - elemental horror

~'s power is equal to the number of horrors you control.

XXB: create x X/X black horror creature tokens.


Create a card that is linked to The Gitrog Monster lorewise.

Love the deck and love the video! I have been seeing a couple land reanimation/destruction list involving cards like The Gitrog Monster, Titania, Protector of Argoth, and Cryptolith Rite for some seriously explosive turns. Have you ever tested this out? Sacrificing lands is risky, but it seems like the Sek'kuar thing to do.

CasualCucumber on Need A Deck Built?

2 weeks ago

Would love to see a deck built around Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar with The Mending of Dominaria and with a delirium theme with black and green containing cards such as Vessel of Nascency and The Gitrog Monster.

The other route i have been thinking about is the same base with Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar and The Mending of Dominaria but also built around Knight of the Reliquary instead of delirium.

The budget is around $50 - It does not have to be competetive! Casual is fine.

Would appreciate to see your take on this :)

Temporal_Inept on Does the Gitrog cleanup combo ...

I understand the basics of the cleanup combo and The Gitrog Monster but have a question. Once, the trigger for a land draw goes on the stack, are players allowed to play instants or is still considered the cleanup phase?

FancyTuesday on Arch fiend of Ifnir’s Interactions ...

Archfiend of Ifnir triggers when you discard "[a] card", not when you discard "one or more cards" which is the wording of effects that only trigger once for an event that could happen multiple times in an action. See for example: The Gitrog Monster.

Your first reading is correct, discarding 2 cards will trigger Archfiend of Ifnir twice.

SirSh4ggy on All in crazy combo

4 weeks ago

I'd like to throw in a few tips on formatting, since I don't really understand whats going on here but would like to. When you list combos try setting them up with their hyper links as if they were an equation. For example: Dakmor Salvage + The Gitrog Monster = mill yourself. That would help draw people in more and gain their attention, since it would be simpler to read and understand.

If you're going for power and consistency, and if this land combo is your main win-con, check out Entomb. It burries target card, not just creatures. Another card to get that land out is Expedition Map. You've got so many mana dorks, that if someone Jester's Capped your land then you'd be out of the game. I'd suggest adding in another few win combos.

TornnReignn on Semi-Budget Muldrotha v2.5

Hey dude! Nice list you have going here. I personally found going a little more into the stacks and recursion side of things in my Muldrotha, the Gravetide deck helped. Through means of Lotus Petal, you get 2 free mana a turn. Spore Frog for if someone is aggro, Tezzeret the Seeker can tutor up any artifacts you need, The Gitrog Monster and Dakmor Salvage gets you a lot of card advantage and fills your graveyard so you can recur and cast things.

Oh, and 2 more things. Don't be afraid to run hand discarding effects, it hurts your opponent WAY more than it hurts you. And finally, throw in Triskelion and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed in there. It's 2 cards, total of 12 mana you can have sit in your graveyard and cast in 1 turn to kill everyone at the table.

These are just some thoughts, Cheers!

Ramunap Excavator r is a fantastic card, an extra crucible of worlds on an early blocker never hurts! I would consider cutting a Undergrowth Champion as it doesn’t do much rather than become a big body and the cmc is the same which doesn’t affect your curve at all!

Some general card suggestions I would make would be Courser of Kruphix, for sustain and card advantage, Skyshroud Claim is an effective way to ramp for lands that can come into play untapped, as well as being able to fetch shock lands to fix your colors early game.

I wish I could suggest Seismic Assault, however I play Yidris lands and that includes The Gitrog Monster and Life from the Loam. Loam does help recur fetches and utility lands when there are no Crucible effects on the battlefield at the time but it is only effective if you have a decent amount of ways to dump lands into your graveyard.

Despite that I love seeing People who run Meloku the Clouded Mirror in landfall decks! I think it is a fantastic card for its utility and spice. Another jankier card that I enjoy for fun times is Patron of the Moon, let the good times roll.

Cool deck!
