Throne of the God-Pharaoh Discussion

Daedalus19876 on The Ten Plagues: Locust God EDH | *PRIMER*

wereotter: Ooh, thanks for highlighting Tolarian Winds! I appreciate it :) and I will try and slot in Throne of the God-Pharaoh.

Rigol: There really does need to be a Jace, the Mind Sculptor here. I just don't have the cash for it right now...Tandem Lookout is a fantastic idea and I definitely need a slot for it. And yes, he does go back to command zone.

iwr09a: No, I agree. This deck isn't meant to be one of my tuned decks, really - it's meant to be kinda silly and janky combo. I do need to stick some disruption in, but I just don't enjoy playing control... Plus, I plan to use this deck in the lower-power circles of my meta (also - it's only 4 days old, I haven't gotten to try it more than once).

(And with regards to your specific card comments, Ivory Tower probably should go, but Propaganda's pretty important since I can't get my Locust swarms until later in the game.)

Tolarian Winds is a cheap self wheeling effect.

Also if you can get the pieces together, Kyren Negotiations along with Throne of the God-Pharaoh can deal out some extra damage without having to attack.

I appreciate the addition of a name, and I might steal it ;)

This is my list: The Ten Plagues: Locust God EDH | *PRIMER*. Hopefully it can give you some good ideas, and I'd love to hear your opinion :)

Have you considered Coalition Relic to let you cast Senehem on T4, Recurring Insight to draw massive numbers of cards, Murder of Crows for an additional combo, or Mystical Tutor/Gamble/Long-Term Plans as tutors?

I'm also totally stealing Throne of the God-Pharaoh and Commit / Memory from your list ;)

TheHamster Yeah, the lack of enchantment destruction / counters is glaring for Red - I keep hoping they'll address it in a new set or something but no dice so far. As far as Red Elemental Blast, that feels too specific to devote one of my 99 to but perhaps worth putting into a sideboard for if I happen to be playing a mono blue deck.

pinecone2k3 I'm like 90% sure I have a Lightning Bolt in my collection back home, but I can't for the life of me think of a reason that I wouldn't have put it in here if I did. Impact Tremors looks fun as hell - I should double check though, does that trigger for the tokens that Krenko generates or is it strictly for 'actual' creatures?

Argy I am nearly certain that I pulled a Purphoros, God of the Forge back in my Theros or Born of the Gods fatpacks. I think I was so caught up in my blinkered "Gotta be only goblins" that I dismissed the usefulness of him without really stopping to consider it. Throne of the God-Pharaoh looks just nasty enough for me to get a decent chuckle out of playing it.

Thank you for the recommendations / advice all three of you.

Thanks for the reply,

I completely agree that you shouldnt leave up mana turn 2, as you need to be developing your board and flooding out with creatures on your side of the field. However a 1/2 of will make your opponent play differently against you when they see the spell. They cant always play a card when you have up mana up, if they cant/wont take the 5 damage, so may wait a turn to find a better time to use it, thus giving you an advantage of delaying your opponent a turn, which in your deck could quite easily win you the game.

I personally would go for 1/2 Dash Hopes as a trial but i'm unsure what to take out.

Final thought: Scrapheap Scrounger, plays well with what your deck wants to do, granted it doesnt benefit from Bad Moon or coming in tapped for Throne of the God-Pharaoh, but does provide an aggro high power threat which has the ability to easily recur at the end of the turn. Also holding up your 2 mana for Dash Hopes could also mean either you recur the scrapheap if theres nothing good to counter.

I'd really apppreciate insight and suggestions on my planned Cat Tribal Deck.




The general idea is to capitalize on numerous ways to place counters on creatures, the use Rishkar's conferred ability to play out Regal Caracal and Paradox Engine ahead of curve. I would like to use Paradox engine, plus extra mana from Rishkar (though it isn't strictly necessary), to get multiple activations of Pride Sovereign's exert ability in one turn; this would simultaneously give me a HUGE fatty and flood the board with 1/1 or, better case, 2/2 tokens.

Throne of the God Pharoh is there to give me additional reach, and I could use Rishkar to tap down any creature I don't want to risk attacking with, and so still get max value from Throne. Not really sure if I should run it or not, but I can see myself going wide enough to put it to good use.

I haven't had a chance to play-test this at all, since several of these cards obviously haven't been released. However, I really want to get a head-start on the build. (I also want to figure out if this is even viable before I invest in the Paradox Engines). Any and all feedback would be greatly appreciated, and well as any insight you can provide into good sideboard options against the current meta.

Hey! I found your deck because you're one of the few Kemba EDH Decks that runs Throne of the God-Pharaoh. I've also been working on a Kemba deck for a few months now and it's really interesting seeing the similarities and differences. If you're interested, take a look:

Maybe we could help each other out?I notice you run Kusari-Gama. How does it work for you? I was reluctant to run it because I was worried it might be slow. My boyfriend runs a Skullbriar, the Walking Grave Voltron deck, which I think has influenced the speed of my deck a great deal. I'm always trying to tune it to be faster, perhaps to the detriment of my deck's performance. I don't see you running Fireshrieker which I think is a HUGE mistake. Did you know double strike will trigger equipment abilities like Sword of Fire and Ice twice? If Kemba has Fireshrieker and Umezawa's Jitte equipped, you can get four counters from a single attack instead of just two.It's cool how you're running tron lands like Urza's Tower ect. Does it work? If so, you may want to add Vesuva. One of the ways I'm getting extra mana is to run Extraplanar Lens and Snow-Covered Plains so that I get double mana from each "plains" but nobody else does. Does Hour of Reckoning pay off for you? How come you don't run Cathars' Crusade? Aren't you worried about Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite killing your 2/2 cats? Does Serra Ascendant pay off? Does Stonehewer Giant ever feel like a waste for you? Doesn't he get removed before you get to use him? Maybe look into Strionic Resonator it doubles the number of cats Kemba gives you! Have you considered Land Tax?

Post a response in the comments of my decklist! I'd love to "compare notes."

Mana Tithe would be a nice card to remove. I mean, it isn't such a good counter. You can also remove Tangle Wire and Whispersilk Cloak. I would add a Throne of the God-Pharaoh, for some extra damage. Champion of the Parish, is another creature i would remove. I mean, you aren't playing a strictly human deck, so, he may be useless if you happen to draw him late game. Also, instead of Flickerwisp, try and put in Cast Out XD
