Thunderfoot Baloth Discussion
1 month ago
Armed // Dangerous another CMC2 Double Strike, $0.21. Downside is it's Sorcery.
Archetype of Aggression, gives all your creatures Trample, $0.39. 6 ground + 4 flying (partial evasion) don't have trample, thats 1/2 your available hitters, including 1 infect.
Gruul Signet, CMC2 Rock, $0.30.
Farseek, CMC2 Ramp!!, $0.27.
Flameblast Dragon won't get his doubled. Timing is off.
Slagstorm scary because it wipes out the dorks, but I understand the thinking, with Cats/Snakes/Vampires.
Arbor Elf, CMC1 Dork, $0.26.
Beastcaller Savant, CMC2, But he has Haste, $0.40 though.
Heart Warden, annoying at CMC2, but can draw a card if late in the game if he's a dead draw, $0.20. Modular is sometimes nice, especially in longer games.
Explore might work pretty well with 40 lands, and it draws a card, so maintains your card-advantage and ramp advantage. I also feel you have quite a bit (too many) lands with all the additional ramp/dorks you have? Might try 38 instead.
Thunderfoot Baloth $1.69, but has trample, with Xenagos is 14 Trample, and gives all other creatures Trample. The best of the Trample enablers mentioned for sure.
Artisan of Kozilek he is 10/9 (20/19 with Xenagos), Returns a creature from your graveyard to the battlefield (not hand), and has Annihilator 2 (Opponent sacrifices 2 permanents, with haste from Xenagos) for $0.43. I have lots of this guy, I'll bring you one.
Maybe with some shuffling of mana sources you can free up cash for Malignus, but he's quite expensive. Tough for budget.
Phyrexian Hydra another Infect guy. Makes it easier to kill 3 players.
Khenra Charioteer more trample, hes a 3/3 so he's not shabby for CMC3. Probably don't need that much anyway.
Talisman of Impulse best non- non- mana source available for $0.33.
Explosive Vegetation is good, but $0.92 and CMC4, I'm not sure. Might look for another lower CMC one to ramp a little faster for that $. Go a bit faster.
I haven't seen this one work yet, See the Unwritten and at $0.82, I'd probably just draw another creature like a Artisan of Kozilek. If you get lucky and the stars align, maybe you get 2, but one might be an Elf. I'd rather just draw another key creature, instead of the randomness. If it was CMC5 or CMC4 and casting a CMC8 maybe, but it's CMC6 probably casting a CMC6 or lower (based on probability, I can calculate it when I have some more time)
Living Hive is in Main and Maybeboard.
I only like Momentous Fall (too expensive $), Deus of Calamity (enables Xenagos), Kavu Predator could be interesting in our Pod (vs cats/vamps anyway). Malignus if you can budget him in. Steel Hellkite good utility again CMC0 Snakes/Vampires for example. Thunderfoot Baloth.
Don't like anything else there.
I think, less lands -2 perhaps, cheaper ramp (and maybe 1 more), 1 more creature (infect guy preferably), reallocate some cash to make sure each creature is a finisher, like Avatar of Fury is kind of blah, if you can cast for 2 he's ok, but what you doing with the other mana that turn anyway, would rather pay the 6 for a finisher. Siege Dragon feels a little underpowered too, but can board wipe (cats/vamps/snakes), would rather use Steel Hellkite instead, better control, lower CMC.
Living Hive feels small for CMC8! Wtf, not sure what your doing with the 1/1 insects, that don't even fly.
That's about all I have for now +1.

Mind's Eye you are playing blue green for gods sake, Brainstorm you have no good ways to shuffle plus the commander says the first spell so you will most likely draw what you put on top, Mirror Match most player win through some short of combo, and it is too expensive, Thunderfoot Baloth does nothing for you because the deck is hardly explosive -> replace with Rampaging Baloths, Mind's Dilation does nothing most of the time, Cryptoplasm sucks. ez

I made similar upgrades to my list. If you're looking for good trample and pump options, try Thunderfoot Baloth and Nylea, God of the Hunt. This deck makes tokens like crazy, so dropping the baloth on a stacked board can be a win con. Nylea is just a really hard to answer source of trample, and it is a great mana sink.
Also, food for thought, i left Loyal Apprentice in the deck. Its not really on theme in terms of "lands matter", but it does make flying tokens that can be useful in protecting Lord Windgrace. The longer the game goes on, the more powerful the apprentice becomes.

Cytoplasm seems too cute.
Stormtide Leviathan is severely underwhelming in my experience, it just never does enough or is completely win more.
I don't think you're a Metallurgic Summonings. You have too much stuff. You really want a high density of spells for this card.
I don't know why Crawlspace is in here. It doesn't jell with the rest of your deck. You really only run this is lock/Control decks. This is straight value.dec Do not waste your time with this.
Deck looks sweet. Have fun!

Honor_BasquiatWell you have a few options. More hate could always be used IE: Broken Bond Reclamation Sage or you could run some big beefy beaters like Rampaging Baloths Kamahl, Fist of Krosa or Thunderfoot Baloth or you could run more land recursion like say Tilling Treefolk or Cartographer or more land sack outlets like Spitting Spider or Squirrel Wrangler I hope this helps! Thank you for loving my primer! This deck is kind of my baby I've been working on it for 2 years now!

Well Shamanic Revelation is good but I'd rather have Corpse Augur, Disciple of Bolas, Slithermuse, Krav, the Unredeemed, maybe Rishkar's Expertise, etc because it can over draw (which can fill the graveyard), and creatures can be reanimated again and again. Grisly Salvage, Tracker's Instincts, and Sultai Ascendancy seem like weaker cards, I'd rather want to ramp, over draw, or remove stuff. Overrun or Lord of the Accursed could be replaced with creatures like Mindshrieker, Kessig Cagebreakers, Beastmaster Ascension, Thunderfoot Baloth, maybe Overwhelming Stampede. Concordant Crossroads and Balthor the Defiled also seem like weaker cards, it will probably benefit other decks more, and BUG reanimator decks can afford to be selfish. I would also replace Splinterfright, as it could be 0/0 on curve, and isn't as strong as the golgari troll or nyx weaver.
I haven't tested this deck yet, so these suggestions might not suffice, but I hope it inspired you a bit. And I have a similar deck (Reanimator's Wet Dream: Sidisi Edition), so checking that out might also help your deck stronger.
Hope this helps

Thanks for the feedback Strobasourus. I agree that Sight of the Scalelords could be a very strong include, and will look at my options for what to switch out. Thunderfoot Baloth is good, and I do like the +2 boost to my team though the trample is sadly redundant, it is a card that may go in if I feel I am not pushing through enough damage. Bellowing Tanglewurm is good but in my playgroup two of my friends main artifact heavy decks (Sharuum the Hegemon and Daretti, Scrap Savant) so Intimidate is less reliable for me. Decimator of the Provinces is great and was very excited to include them!
