The Gitrog Monster Discussion

Closest I could make work is the following:
Siege Rhino Assuming it's the duel deck one.
If that's close enough for you, let me know. (Or if you have other small wants you can find, that also works.)

Cultist.Of.Rakdos, thank you for the suggestions. I may drop the 2 cards to the sideboard for more lands, but I won't be cutting The Gitrog Monster. He is one of my favorite cards and he has done some work for me in this deck, I can see how cutting him could add more speed or consistency to the deck but it has been running fairly well for me, and I can always use him as discard fodder if necessary. This deck started with a full set of Pyromancer's Ascension and it just never really worked out for me.
Thank you again for the suggestions.

I get what you mean. Still saying, try and dwell on it a bit more, maybe there are some other utility lands that you could add, or maybe outright replace them with nonland cards. I don't know the right amount of lands that you wanna play (although I've always wanted to play The Gitrog Monster I've never had a chance to get my hands on one) but maybe 47 is too much. Idk. Have you thought about adding a Pack Guardian?

Honestly I felt there was too much going on in the deck and wanted to streamline it. While Gitrog may still have a place, I'm testing this shell out to see how well the token theme works out. If I do add The Gitrog Monster, it will be at the top end. I almost feel Archangel Avacyn Flip is a better top end with the mana base being so green light though.

Chris3778 I did watch the video and I think it's interesting. I thought that I responded to this earlier, but I guess it didn't take... I like the deck, but I'm not a fan of The Gitrog Monster. I get why people use it in decks like this (deathtouch), but I hate losing the land. The card draw would be interesting, but I just cannot stomach losing the land.
I have played around with the Pathway Arrows trick. It's clunky, but it works well. I'll probably try to get a couple of copies mainboard after some more tinkering.
Thanks for the link and for the suggestion!

I think the reclamation is going to be better if i ever decide to take the deck out of a budget and add Fetch lands. Though even now I have a fair amount of lands dying, between their own effects or Sylvan Safekeeper. If I find space for The Gitrog Monster than the reclamation will be even better. The reclamation could combo with Nature's Revolt as well, which is why i considered it in the first place. I'm going to get a couple of games in with just the revolt to see how much i like it for now. Then start tinkering again lol
