This is great! Crush Underfoot is great removal, and Thundercloud Shaman is very good at killing off opposing blockers.

Coward_Token on EDH: Universal Tribal Supplements

(Edit: Updates now on (List) Coward_Token's custom cards)

I feel that some tribes are only partially supported. Rather than trying to fix each individual tribe, I've tried to think of some cards that would be good enough for the lesser tribes but not so good that the established ones like Goblins & Merfolk would also benefit. This way, the situation would be remedied for all underdog tribes, both present and future. Hopefully this isn't too misguided; let me know what you think.

Width token makers

The following are meant for tribal cards which would appreciate going wide but have difficulty doing so reliably, e.g. Thundercloud Shaman or Admiral Beckett Brass (why does Grixis only have one Pirate token maker available?). One concern I have with these is that they could be problematic with some cards, e.g. Reaper King , Soulcatchers' Aerie and Gilt-Leaf Archdruid .

Obelisk of Creation Show

Genesis Blade Show

Artificial Sire Show

Height cards

These are meant to help tribes who suffer from having few cards to choose from within singleton limitations, giving them some extra fatties.

Red white giants might be better, as you get things like Feudkiller's Verdict and Hundred-Handed One. Also Sunrise Sovereign is really strong. Crush Underfoot is really good too. If you search for giants in the lorwyn block you will find some underused gems for sure. Also Palisade Giant will let you cast Thundercloud Shaman without killing off your mana helpers.

But you only have oneSwarmborn Giant and every giant you sacrifice decrease the effects on Sunrise Sovereign and Thundercloud Shaman...idk.

Anyways you know I don't understand the beauty of sacrificing creatures.

Personally, after seeing the Wade Into Battle Commander 2015 deck, I lost all confidence in Giant Tribal. Then again, that's mainly because of the fact that my friends think that it is trash, and they have been playing longer than me, so I trust them.

Anyway, there's always Borderland Behemoth and Thundercloud Shaman, both of which are good additions to a Giant Tribal deck.

You can possibly try out Bearer of the Heavens, Pharagax Giant, Stoneshock Giant, Bloodfire Colossus, Impelled Giant, and Boldwyr Intimidator.

I have a tribal Giant deck that is mostly lorwyn and morningtide cards. It can be pretty fun, my secondary theme was double strike so it gets nasty fast. Some cards I would consider looking at or thinking about are thus: Favor of the Mighty, Wandering Graybeard, and Thundercloud Shaman

Best of luck with your deck!

Ok. I had a list, but I don't have the time to explain until later tonight. Here's what I would cut and if you have any questions, I'll answer them later today. Note that the list may not be exhaustive:

Kalemne's Captain

Thundercloud Shaman

Blade of Selves

Warchief Giant

Prophetic Flamespeaker

Legion's Initiative

As for other cards you could add...



Swiftfoot Boots

Outpost Siege

Any CMC 5+ cards that fit within your budget. Try to not add too many, as it would ruin the deck.
