Thunderfoot Baloth Discussion

Cyrialis on Wake the Earth

I like your List! so much different from mine! Thunderfoot Baloth Seems NOT to work with Nissa very well, because the Lieutenant trigger only is on the front part of the card NOT the Planeswalker one though, I took him out of my deck after that was suggested to me - since offically the Frontside seems to be the name of your commander - I could, of course, be wrong about this, but at least my local game group explained it to me like that.Why did you include grazing gladehart?Your deck seems not very keen on lifegain as such.Also a card I always consider adding in is Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip, so much this card can do.

Overall I like the Flavor and theme of your build.

For my taste, you have too many cards that benefit your opponents just as much as they help you. Archangel of Strife could be Thunderfoot Baloth or Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite. Borderland Explorer could be Sylvan Ranger or Borderland Ranger or Civic Wayfinder. Ghirapur Orrery and Rites of Flourishing could be virtually any card draw engines that helps only you: Drumhunter, Garruk's Packleader, Magus of the Library, Primordial Sage, Mind's Eye, Seer's Sundial, and Staff of Nin all come to mind. Collective Voyage could be Cultivate or Nissa's Pilgrimage.

The next problem is that you are light on land. I use less land than most people, and you are at least 2 lands short for me, probably more like 3-4. And two of your lands don't produce any mana, meaning you would need even more. You could replace Evolving Wilds with Naya Panorama or Krosan Verge, or just add them at the expense of a creature or enchantment. You have all sorts of conditional taplands and Grand Coliseum, so replacing one of them with (or just adding) Jungle Shrine doesn't seem like a bad idea.

You are also light on spot removal, a trap I have fallen into more than once. Terastodon would probably have a home in your creature mix, and Fade into Antiquity, Krosan Grip, or even just Naturalize would not be a waste of space.

I feel like you could use some more efficient ways to close out the game than just beating down with 1/1s. Overrun, Triumph of the Hordes, Craterhoof Behemoth, Thunderfoot Baloth. And Lightning Greaves to protect Edric seems important.

Drop Naturalize, you've got enough artifact/enchantment hate. Prey Upon is meh, Selesnya Charm is much better. Avacyn's Pilgrim and Sakura-Tribe Elder are much better than Elvish Mystic or Llanowar Elves. Heliod, God of the Sun, Tolsimir Wolfblood, Woolly Spider, and Qasali Ambusher are meh. Wayfaring Temple is meh too, I personally like Scion of Vitu-Ghazi better. Darien, King of Kjeldor is a staple, you need board wipes so like Hour of Reckoning, Phyrexian Rebirth, and Ezuri's Predation are good choices. Phyrexian Processor and Mimic Vat are awesome. Shamanic Revelation, Harvest Season, Angelic Accord, and Thunderfoot Baloth

3 things this deck could really use Thunderfoot Baloth being able to trample over with your big creatures instead of being chump blocked is an absolute must have especially if you're seeking to do infect damage..Inexorable Tide need I say anything straight up proliferation and Rhystic Study given the relatively low cmc and high mana ramp I imagine there are more than a few games where you just dump your hand and do nothing but top deck and durdle when a mass board wipe hits the field this will allow you to quickly restock your hand as most players won't tax themselves unless they have nothing better to do!! I hope this helps happy infecting

Stormcaller on Tolsimir Dogeblood, howl about that?

Chandrian thanks for the upvote

I will swap Loxodon Smiter and Fleecemane Lion for Thunderfoot Baloth and Voice of Resurgence

Also I'm thinking about removing one Forest and one of the ramp spells for Heliod, God of the Sun and Anointed Procession, since the curve is really low and i never had mana problems during playtesting.

+1 from me. Your deck already looks super solid, so not certain if there's really room for switching cards.

From the maybeboard I would consider the following cards: Anointed Procession, Heliod, God of the Sun, Thunderfoot Baloth and Voice of Resurgence

Cards I would maybe switch out: Loxodon Smiter (unless there is a lot of discard effects in your group I don't think it's that effective in EDH), Fleecemane Lion is a strong card but doesn't really add anything to your strategy.

But like I said, your list is already solid, so there is no real need to make changes unless you really want to.
