Thrull Parasite Discussion

RazortoothMtg on Best Commander for Saga Tribal?

1 month ago

So since sagas were revealed, I've decided that I want to build an EDH deck based around them, and after Raff was spoiled I definitely need to do this.

The question is, what commander?

So we definitely want Raff Capashen in the deck, because Flash seems very powerful with these (not that I can't also have Vedalken Orrery, and we also definitely want Jhoira to draw off all the sagas, as well as a few other cards like Mesa Enchantress, Inexorable Tide, Starfield of Nyx, etc. Then in we have Eidolon of Blossoms, Herald of the Pantheon, Argothian Enchantress, and recursion effects to get back our sagas after III happens. Then in black we get things like Zur the Enchanter, Cabal Paladin, and some of the stronger Sagas like The Eldest Reborn, and also cards like Hex Parasite and Thrull Parasite to move around counters.

tl;dr: There are Saga support cards, as well as Sagas, in all 5 colors. Is it best to go 5-color, or are payoffs in some colors too weak? Also, which commander in those colors might synergize with sagas, or should I go for a generic goodstuff commander in those colors?


Ohda on Another Haptra deck

Hey there !

I would suggest you some ramps spells like Rampant Growth, Nature's Lore ( my personnal favorite ), Farseek ( even if the fact that you don't include Bayou or Overgrown Tomb makes it less effective ), Kodama's Reach and Cultivate have the advantage of not being turn two drops so you can get your commander on the table and next turn start to ramp.

I really don't like the Tempt with Discovery and I usually am not tempted when anyone plays a card like it. It is way too expensive even if, in the right condition I get it, that cards goes bonkers and trim your deck. Also even if Harvest Season is a great card on paper, you want to ramp early, even if you didn't miss a drop you can only hope for a 3 lands spells on turn three. Considering you would need a Sol Ring in your hand, a basic of each color, Thrull Parasite, Sakura-Tribe Elder AND Noose Constrictor in your opening hand. That's a real struggle I think. You would rather have a 1-2 ramp spell most of the time.

I love the inclusion of Uncage the Menagerie but it only has 5 targets at X=3 ( if you didn't draw any yet ) and 5 at X=4, I think it would be interresting to work on that and change a bit your curve. I would prefer going for more 3CMC cards, as I think casting more cards is better than casting a big one each turn.

Some good 3 mana creatures that would fit your deck are :

Skullwinder : Better than Eternal Witness sometimes...

Banewhip Punisher : Good cheap removal that gets often overlooked.

Serrated Biskelion : Two snakes in a turn if Hapatra is on the battlefield.

Manglehorn : It can mess with a late Sol Ring or most of the ramp / filter artifacts and pretty cheap card !

Another great creature that I would love to include in my deck if the format was 101 cards is Tenacious Hunter pretty budget and a killer in 1v1.

Sorry for the long comment, hope this helps in case you were seaching for some new cards to look at for your deck that seems already fun to me :) Have a nice day !

Crypt Ghast, Pontiff of Blight, and Thrull Parasite all have extort, and seem good.

Dismal on Kambal - Drain everybody!

I would remove either Thrull Parasite or Treasury Thrull, as they have bad synergy with Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, and I'd replace them with a copy of Oketra's Monument, as it creates more dudes to sacrifice.

22 lands seems a bit lite if you have 4's of Phyrexian Obliterator and Gray Merchant of Asphodel. I would add an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and another swamp. Thrull Parasite and Deathgreeter seem week. I would add some amount of Collective Brutality (all modes are relevant against burn).

shaftdiggity on Athreos Deck (plz halp)

7 months ago

One thing to consider is that Athreos' ability doesn't do anything with tokens. It looks like you're going a stax route with tokens, which is fine, but they don't necessarily synergize with your commander. I would suggest Grave Pact and Black Market along with some self-sacrifice like Viscera Seer and Fleshbag Marauder. Another route you could consider is focusing on life by playing low cost non threatening creatures, and having a ton of extort effects like Blind Obedience and Thrull Parasite and just recast all your stuff repeatedly with extort to paper cut your opponents to death. I have a cleric based athreos that does this listed under my decks that I love.

xyr0s on Nobody expects the black counterspell (Black Burn)

On the "what is better graveyard hate": I know that Tormod's Crypt is cheaper in terms of mana, but replacing itself is a big deal with both Nihil Spellbomb and Relic of Progenitus.

So far, though, your decks have suffered a littel bit from taxing their own mana. Thrull Parasites extort costs mana, Will-o'-the-Wisps regeneration costs mana... One or two things requiring a bit of mana is ok, but it runs up pretty fast, and going gets hard for decks with only 20 lands.

Apart from that, Blood Scrivener and Asylum Visitor only really works if you can reliably empty your hand. When you have mana you need to keep open, you play your cards slower, and therefore find it harder to trigger these 2 not-quite-bobs.
