Throne of the God-Pharaoh Discussion

Anagkai on Looking for suggestions on my ...

9 hours ago

I recently created the following deck: Mushroom Flood

It's for casual purposes and plays quite nicely in this context. Still I'm looking for ideas to improve. [The deck does not contain Doubling Season, Parallel Lives or Primal Vigor for budget reasons.]

Some problems I noticed were: 1) It is a bit like a house of cards. E.g. if I play a Gigantosaurus turn 3, Fungal Sprouting on turn 4 and Mycolothturn 5, I can easily get a lot of tokens fast. The problem, though is, that if anything gets taken out of the chain of action, it can get pretty bad pretty quickly. 2) Mana flood can easily happen, especially when having Caged Sun and/or Harvest Season but not Triumph of Ferocity.

There's a few cards that I will maybe take out: Shapers' Sanctuary, Jade Mage, Gravity Well and one Harvest Season. I definitely want to add a second Leyline of Vitality and a third Beastmaster Ascension. Also I'm thinking about replacing one Mycoloth with a Gigantosaurus. I also thought about adding Throne of the God-Pharaoh.

I would be really interested in what other people have to say to these thoughts but I'm also open to other suggestions. Please keep in mind, though, that this deck is for casual and that I don't wanna add really expensive stuff.

I had the Song of Freyalise from before I ran heritage druid and it's on it's way out. I see what you mean by Joraga Warcaller and after hearing that I will probably take it out. I've seen Elvish Clancaller but I didn't have a set so that's why I didn't add it yet. The one thing I like about Throne of the God-Pharaoh is when tapping for mana or using convoke they lose life on the endstep as well as it beats turbo fog which is big in my local meta. Thank you so much Lanzo493 your input is really helpful to me.

Think of it like this. Elvish Clancaller vs Throne of the God-Pharaoh. Both of these cards are 2 mana. Both of them net you 1 extra damage per elf. However, Elvish Clancaller itself is an additional creature, can search itself, and also provides your creatures with extra toughness, whereas the Throne of the God Pharaoh only provides extra damage (assuming your creatures even survive until the end of turn). I also don't like Song of Freyalise very much. Most of your creatures tap for mana anyway (especially with Heritage Druid). That last effect seems very enticing, but it is also not as good as using Ezuri multiple times. I used to use Imperious Perfect in my own elf deck, but it's too slow. Elves are fast, so my imperious perfect never consistently had time to make tokens and was just a clunky 3 mana lord who was strictly worse than every other lord in my deck.

WhichKing, thanks for the suggestion. I did think about including Throne of the God-Pharaoh originally but it seemed that by the time an infinite play was possible or by the time there was enough creatures on the board to use Varina's ability multiple times, I would have probably already won with other methods. However as mentioned, it is always good to have another win con so what would you suggest on subbing out with throne?

Nice deck, looks really balanced. I wonder if Throne of the God-Pharaoh would be a good fit. I can imagine a few good game-ending plays with infinite Gravecrawler-Diregraf Colossus loops.

Also, I could imagine it being quite good with Varina's ability, Ashnod's Altar and Anointed Procession. Sac your board to Ashnod's, use the mana to get tapped zombie tokens, and slap down the Throne for the win. This gets better if Plague Belcher is out when the sacrificing happens.

Hoi,

Deck ziet er goed uit, er zitten nog veel kaarten in die ik ondertussen gemist heb. :D Ik vind zelf de average cmc best hoog. Ik denk dat je daardoor misschien niet vaak de ability van rhys kan gebruiken. Mana doubles zoals Mirari's Wake en Zendikar Resurgent gaan daarom zeker helpen. Song of Freyalise is zeker een goede additie. Cryptolith Rite werkt net zo. Harvest Season laat je land in play leggen voor alles wat tapped is. Deze kaart combo-ed goed met convoke kaarten of de kaarten hieronder die er voor kunnen zorgen dat je minder snel wordt geswarmed door opponents. Harvest Season is al beter dan cultivate als je 2 tapped creatures hebt.

Carddraw in wit-groen tokens is ook iets makkelijker geworden met bijv. Huatli, Radiant Champion en Camaraderie. (De goedkoopste opties heb je al Mentor of the Meek en Skullclamp.) Andere duurdere opties zijn Collective Unconscious en Regal Force. Shamanic Revelation kost weer wat minder en geeft je ook nog leven voor de grotere creatures. Deze kaart werkt best goed met de worms en angels in het deck.

Het deck mag wel iets meer removal draaien. Hoeveel manieren heb je om creatures/permanents weg te halen? Een suggestie is o.a. Aura Mutation. Ik vind dit ontzettend sterke removal gezien de value die je haalt uit deze instant van 2 mana. Citywide Bust is nieuwe mass removal voor token decks.

Eldrazi Monument maakt je creatures indestructible en laat ze vliegen. Dat laat ze makkelijker doorkomen bij opponents. Bovendien biedt het bescherming tegen de boardwipes die je ook zelf draait. Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist maakt het ook makkelijker om door te komen en voorkomt dat mensen je gaan swarmen. Shalai, Voice of Plenty biedt je ook bescherming tegen sources met single targets. Die kan je overwegen, maar ik vind 'm hier niet super goed.

Concordant Crossroads geeft alles wat in play komt haste. Dit werkt goed in je token deck, maar werkt helaas ook op opponents. Ook Akroma's Memorial geeft je creatures haste en maakt het makkelijker om ze door te laten komen. De haste enables werken ontzettend goed met de Goldnight Commander of Cathars' Crusade die in je deck zitten. En ook met Divine Visitation hieronder.

Divine Visitation doet op zichzelf niets maar maakt wel flying 4/4 angels van al de tokens die in play komen. Dit bufft je tokens en maakt je betere blockers en laat ze ook makkelijker doorkomen.

Tendershoot Dryad is naar mijn mening veel beter dan Verdant Force die nu in je deck zit. Deze kost 3 mana minder en kan je saprolings ook nog buffen. Speel 'm na Aura Mutation en/of Mycoloth en je kan meteen voor veel slaan met de saprolings. Je kan natuurlijk ook nogsteeds beide spelen.

Thunderfoot Baloth is goed in het buffen van creatures. Maar hiervoor zijn ook andere goede opties te vinden.

March of the Multitudes vind ik in dit deck beter dan Chord of Calling al kan je daarmee o.a. Craterhoof Behemoth uitzoeken. Het nadeel is dan wel dat je creatures getapped hebt liggen. Als je veel met convoke en/of kaarten als Song of Freyalise speelt dan zou ik ook Paradox Engine in het deck doen. Met de song kan je hiermee al je non-lands uit je hand casten. Als je nog 'n steady carddraw hebt met Mentor of the Meek of huatli's emblem dan kan je je hele deck in play leggen. Buiten dat is deze ook sterk want het geeft je de mogelijkheid om met alles aan te vallen iedere beurt. Buiten convoke en de Cryptolith Rite effecten heb je nog Glare of Subdual die ontzettend goed werk heeft geleverd in mijn ghave deck. Best wel een aanrader. Je tapt 'n mannetje en voorkomt dat je aangevallen word door grote threats. Deze werkt ook goed met Paradox Engine of Throne of the God-Pharaoh.

Impervious Greatwurm kan je mid to late game voor goedkoop casten. Deze dikzak is moeilijk weg te halen maar heeft helaas geen trample dus komt ook moeilijk door zonder 'n Eldrazi Monument ofzo.

Anointed Procession is de witte Parallel Lives die is uitgekomen. Naud kent 'm ook.

The Immortal Sun is in dit deck beter als Staff of Nin al kan je ze beide prima spelen. Het helpt je bovendien bij het casten van kaarten en bufft meteen ook al je mannetjes. Het werkt ook tegen planeswalkers van opponents en helaas werkt deze ook tegen de planeswalkers in je eigen deck waar je op moet letten.

Flower / Flourish is zowel vroeg als late game prima.

Nogmaals, het deck heeft zeker goede potential. Rhys blijft squishy maar is zeker niet de grootste threat op het bord. Kaarten die ik uit je deck zou halen zijn Acidic Slime, Armada Wurm,Hydra Broodmaster en Verdant Force die naar mijn mening te veel mana kosten voor wat ze doen. Karametra, God of Harvests werkt helaas alleen op creatures die je cast en niet op je tokens. Omdat je weinig creatures hebt zal ik 'm er uit laten.

Descend upon the Sinful is ook te duur en laat je alles verliezen ondanks de kaarten die je creatures indestructible kunnen maken. Ik zou het laten bij de removal wat destroyed ipv exiled. Er zijn nog nieuwe kaarten uitgekomen die al je creatures indestructible maken voor de turn. Ik heb ze niet genoemd maar ze kunnen erg sterk zijn samen met de boardwipes die je zelf speelt of de boardwipes van opponents.

Hey, I've got an elf deck as well which runs many similar card combos. I was also running Seeker of Skybreak for a while until I found Vitalize to be much more powerful (despite it not being a creature to add an extra +1 to your elf count).

Throne of the God-Pharaoh is also a really neat card to use in elf decks as a way to deal damage w/o attacking if necessary (especially since mana burn isn't a thing anymore!).

The name of my elf deck is Tae'rin Terror if you want to peek at some other cards that I run, though there are so many good choices with elves that it can be hard finding exactly what to swap in/out.

+1 Because I love elf decks

Cuts: Vedalken Orrery just don't play in someone elses turn. the deck wil say that u wil have no cards anymore in hand when u need them. personaly i find the card only good in decks that can draw a lot of cards in opponents turns. - Throne of the God-Pharaoh don't think u gone have all creatures tapped constantly and if u have that card laying down ... agreed the deck can be fast but in my opinion its better to keep those cards in maybebord when u know what the deck is going to be. - Eldrazi Monument i d rather play Elemental Bond than eldrazi monument. draw a card for every token that comes into play ... i find better then just everything indestructible. ... u just sacrifice everything for mana or for dmg when they get destroyed and summon your hazezon back when u need it. - Conjurer's Closet totally not needed in the deck in my opinion - Primal Vigor u already have enough doubling seasons u don't need 4 - Land Tax wouldn't play that in a 3 colored deck whit fetches in ( still its a nice way to get the stuff)(maybeboard) - Cryptolith Rite do you really need that mana ? - Breath of Fury why ? - Seedborn Muse i can see the reason because Vedalken Orrery but otherwise i wouldn't even bother with it - Harvest Season to less basic land cards play Boundless Realms instead

ADDS: Mwonvuli Acid-Moss destroy a land of a person ... fetch a forest for yourself. worth it when someone has a lot of land matter cards that he needs to finish the game off. or just for someone who plays a Gaea's Cradle. - Elemental Bond like i already said for drawing cards of your commanders trigger. - Mirari's Wake ... double mana and +1/+1 - Flameshadow Conjuring double token triggers for your commander or just every card that enters the battlefield trigger it twice when u got the mana - Knight of New Alara +1/+1 - Lovisa Coldeyes +2/+2 - Shalai, Voice of Plenty counters and hexproof whenever u need and want... - Hour of Devastation rather play this boardwipe... - Sun Titan why is this not in this deck ... - Ramunap Excavator if u want to get your land when u need it. becous fetches same whit this card Crucible of Worlds - Path of Discovery +1/+1 path... - Knight of the Reliquary get the land u need ... - Mirror Entity card to play as second Craterhoof Behemoth- Evolutionary Leap desperate for creatures ... - Eldritch Evolution Most fun fetch in the game i find.

There are stil cards that u gone need to remove and add in this deck anyway stil everything i have written down wil not aid in what your final product wil and can be. just take a good focus to the deck and if u watch edhrec just check out the expensive decks as they contain the most interesting items for the deck in the main deck. the only thing i can say for now is focus on how much times u can cast your commander.
