The Gitrog Monster Discussion

Closest I could make work is the following:


Lifecrafter's Bestiary

Monastery Mentor

Total 12.05


The Gitrog Monster

Siege Rhino Assuming it's the duel deck one.

Dragonlord Dromoka

Green Sun's Zenith

Total: 13.55

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 run 8 mana dorks so I think cutting the sol ring could work. The issue is I'm cutting a mana rock for a either Splendid Reclamation or The Gitrog Monster.

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
