Thought Gorger Discussion

SueMe on Hogaak: My Favorite (Infinite) Combo Deck

1 week ago

Yo v1ns4n1ty!

Yeah this deck definitely has got some punch. I considered taking the Phyrexian Altar out for a couple of games, because things were getting a little out of hand with my playgroup. I figured I'd try just going for the Pitiless Plunderer and the Ashnod's Altar instead, but then the whole pandemic thing started, so....

The discard outlets are definitely underrated for Hogaak, so I'm glad you found that part useful!

Interesting. Thought Gorger is another one of those cards I've never seen before. It can be risky if you often find yourself having something you really want to keep in your hand, but I suppose that there will be situations when it'll be powerful. The idea is interesting, but it really needs a sacrifice outlet to work. And if I already have the Greater Good out, then I'll be already winning by drawing a lot of cards.

It might be an interesting piece of tech in my Marchesa, the Black Rose deck, which has a lot of sac-outlets. I can imagine just cycling away a whole bunch of hands each turn cycle....

Thanks for stopping by, and giving me some ideas! I really do appreciate.

v1ns4n1ty on Hogaak: My Favorite (Infinite) Combo Deck

Hi, I just came your across your list and love it! I have a hogaak deck and I love it to death but I'm hoping to give it a bit more of a punch and this list helps a lot! I also love the discard subtheme to it and is something I will implement in my deck.

Regarding the discard subtheme, have you actually though about using Thought Gorger? I think this card has a lot of potential with Bone Miser and after that with a sac outlet that lets you draw. You draw double the cards if you sac him to Greater Good, so he acts like a mini Hogaak. He net you even more cards than hogaak in certain circumstances.

xSKINCOLLECTORx on Alesha, who smiles at Commander

Check out my Alesha deck for some cool ideas, it’s only expensive for the mana base and tutor package. I’ve dialed it in where I like it and hopefully it will help others. Mirror Entity is a must have for a swarm strategy. Best lord ever! You need the two new talismans Talisman of Hierarchy and Talisman of Dominance you also need the Arcane Signet that came out. Really helps and is better than the Mardu banner. I always loved discarding my hand to Thought Gorger then reanimating Disciple of Bolas to draw a ton of cards. Key to the City is a perfect fit for Alesha. Cathartic Reunion , Tormenting Voice, and Thrill of Possibility are excellent filtering while hopefully putting cool stuff in the graveyard.

Fiend Hunter , Duplicant , Duergar Hedge-Mage, and Necrotic Sliver are excellent removal for Alesha, as well as Nekrataal and Ravenous Chupacabra

Goldnight Commander is a powerhouse when you reanimate a token maker guy.

I’ve tried to keep these suggestions budget friendly, hopefull they help you enjoy your Alesha deck. I love mine!

Strangelove on Syr Konrad EDH

+1 my guy. @Your post

I wanted to second Necropotence , great combo, as well as the classic Painter's Servant / Grindstone .

Darkblast is probably playable.

Gravecrawler + Phyrexian Altar + Zombie... goes infinite.

Putrid Goblin / Lesser Masticore + Metallic Mimic + Sacrifice... also goes infinite... maybe this and Gravecrawler could push you into a soft Zombie Tribal subtheme?

Have you considered Living Death or Twilight's Call ?

Lifeline or Champion of Stray Souls are similar to a Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker build.

Phyrexian Reclamation is a great way to access your graveyard.

You could go crazy and try the Lich cards or maybe Forbidden Crypt .

Geth, Lord of the Vault

You really need more draw and to that end try Thought Gorger / Geier Reach Sanitarium / Null Profusion / Harvester of Souls

I would remove most of your milling artifacts to make room for some of the above, more draw, more removal, and 4-5 board wipes ( Boompile and Oblivion Stone effects are a must in monoblack). You have strong combos with Syr Konrad and I would focus on drawing/ tutoring into those while you control the board a bit more. With more interaction it'll be less of a glass cannon and more fun to play with and against.

Good luck!

grimcase21 on Varolz Counters EDH

Hi l0ry,

Varolz is probably my favorite deck that I've built so far, but the ideal route is to go with a elf ball shell. Play all the dorks you can find because 1) they are very early mana ramp, 2) you can sac them to protect your commander, and 3) you can scavenge them when you're done with them (nice thing is the elves usually pay for themselves, float mana, sac and use it to scavenge). Don't forget Birds of Paradise

That is step # 1 for consistency mana to do crazy stuff. Step 2 is either consistent mill, or consistent tutor, or both. For the mill plan, best card to use is Mesmeric Orb . Get that turn 1 with soul ring, and you're going places. There are a lot of budget options to mill. On the other hand, with the tutors you'll be more consistent and basically turn into an one-turn-kill with either Phyrexian Dreadnought or Death's Shadow on your commander or something that has infect.

Cards to think about, as they have work wonders for me

MindAblaze on Decision Paralysis

I’ve reached an impasse and need your suggestions. Any you make will be valuable.

I’ve been...hoarding cards lately, ordering playset after play set of things to build with, and now that most of them are here I don’t know what exactly to do with them. I’m really in need of suggestions because I can’t make a decision. Below is a list of cards that I have desire to make into something(s?);

Wildfire Eternal

Thought Gorger

Mogg Fanatic

Nahiri's Wrath

Sickening Dreams

Prized Amalgam

Diregraf Captain

Whispering Madness

Psychic Corrosion and,

Flayer of the Hatebound

Obviously I have more cards than this to supplement whatever the plan ends up being and I don’t expect to fit them all together, but if you have any suggestions then shoot. I’d greatly appreciate any ideas. Apparently I’m a netherbeast who has developed the retardations and can’t build a sixty card deck anymore...

I've run Tezzeret's Gambit in similar lists. Have you looked at splashing red or blue instead of white?

Red gets you Vexing Devil and Devastating Summons alongside haste enablers. Blue gets you Cloudfin Raptor and Pongify alongside the usual blue stuff.

With a fetch base you can even start looking at even wilder cards- Bloodhall Ooze and Slitherhead, Thought Gorger and more. Just depends on where you want to look for synergies- +1 counters have been printed on a lot of good cards over the years.

Thought Gorger could be a good top end threat, since Lord of Extinction would put it way over budget.
