Thunderfoot Baloth Discussion

Recommended Cuts

Creatures

Blightsteel Colossus - Curve reasons

Graveblade Marauder - Cute but effect probably isn't good enough

Hamletback Goliath - Curve reasons

Khenra Eternal - Bad card basically. Though we want this slot to be at that mana cost

Khenra Scrapper - Again. We want aggressive cards like this but we can do better

Saskia the Unyielding - Big target on your head. Colour intensive. Not a warrior

Savage Knuckleblade - Colour intensive

Taurean Mauler - Doesn't work towards our game plan. Doesn't trigger off combat damage doesn't buff others.

Tenacious Dead - Just bad

Tolsimir Wolfblood - Buff isn't universal and its expensive

Zhur-Taa Druid - We want mana dorks. But only taps for green and its colour intensive to cast.

Maybe Cuts Or Later Cuts

Thunderfoot Baloth - Expensive but ok effect.

Hellkite Charger - Maybe cut. We already have access to this effect at cheaper cost

Zurgo Helmsmasher - He's good. But doesn't help the rest of the game plan

Sorceries

Maybe Cut

Clan Defiance - Doesn't impact the board enough to make us win the game.

Lavalanche - Effect we want but possible to find cheaper?

Enchantment

Fires of Yavimaya - Replace with Rhythm of the Wild

Instant

Artifact Mutation && Aura Mutation - Change with generic artifact or enchantment removal

Crackling Doom - Doesn't do enough

Artifact

Oketra's Monument - Doesn't trigger enough and the mana reduction isn't relevant enough

I have a feeling this list would want a Fierce Empath to grab a Thunderfoot Baloth or Bane of Progress , or one of the other 7 targets like Archetype of Endurance , and it is a really cheap card too!

Thunderfoot Baloth could certainly work! I feel that Triumph of the Hordes is not as good due to it being a 4 mana drop that casts at sorcery speed (that might just be my bias against infect though). If you want a sorcery, perhaps Overwhelming Stampede could work, as that is a +2/+2 assuming you have your commander out

Thanks for the advice! Do you think that cards like Triumph of the Hordes or Thunderfoot Baloth could provide enough stats for the creatures to break though the defense?

I really think that your "elves matters" stuff should be cut like Marwyn, Elvish Mystic, Priest, and Ambush Commander... You only have 17 elves and I just don't think it'll ever really be of consequence. I mean if Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury was the commander I get it but... Not a fan of this those 4. At the very least I'd cut Marwyn, as she requires herself to be down first in order to get the extra mana.

I think a Siege Behemoth , Craterhoof Behemoth , or a Thunderfoot Baloth would be a GREAT combat trick with Yeva!

triproberts12 on don't look at this elf deck

Firstly, you need

I would start with cutting Arcane Encyclopedia. In green, you have much better options. Guardian Project , Lead the Stampede , Vanquisher's Banner , and Harmonize are all better.

Elvish Piper can go. What are you putting into play that's worth the 5-mana, two turns, and a card of investment?

Devikarin Dissident can go. It's just not very strong.

Druid of the Cowl, Elfhame Druid, Llanowar Scout should be the next creatures to go. There are better mana elves out there. Llanowar Elves , Fyndhorn Elves , Joraga Treespeaker , and Arbor Elf should all be in there before more mana elves enter the equation.

Blanchwood Armor, Oakenform, Arbor Armament, Dragonscale Boon, Gift of Growth, Mutagenic Growth, Pounce, Shape the Sands, Vines of the Recluse, and Takedown are all poorly suited to EDH. You'll want effects that pump your whole team like Beastmaster Ascension , Overwhelming Stampede , Craterhoof Behemoth , and Thunderfoot Baloth , rather than targeted combat tricks. Likewise, you'll want Heroic Intervention to save creatures. As for flying removal, consider Hurricane , Tropical Storm , Whiptongue Hydra , and Tornado Elemental .
