Thunderfoot Baloth Discussion

DrkNinja on Yeva Draw-Grow

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 .

Primordial Sage and Soul of the Harvest go great in this deck. It's like having more copies of Beast Whisperer . Regal Force also gets you draws. Urabrask the Hidden is a great budget card. As for mana ramp, never underestimate Elvish Mystic , Llanowar Elves , Fyndhorn Elves , and Arbor Elf . They all let your commander come out a turn earlier, for example. Sol Ring is great if you can afford it, too. An old G favorite of mine that has killed many people is Thunderfoot Baloth . I bet you'll like him, too.

I think Xenagos would be the better commander. As soon as a dude drops, you're attack with it and it's big. Primal Rage or anything else that gives your dude trample, like Thunderfoot Baloth and the like would be nice too. Ruric Thar, the Unbowed might be nice too.

Sadly Primeval Titan is not Commander legal.

Given your commander's sac ability, you should consider more creatures that will give you extra value when they die, IE: Thragtusk , Night Incarnate and Solemn Simulacrum

To drain more life per death: Blood Artist , Falkenrath Noble and Zulaport Cutthroat

For keeping trample up, Thunderfoot Baloth

And a catchall recommendation - Beast Within , very flexible in that it can take out any problematic permanent. It seems like more than a fair trade to be able to take out a planeswalker at instant speed.

Wredny_Dziad on THE Maelstrom Wanderer EDH

Hi, first thing I noiticed is that you have only one point removal on instant. My meta shifted to more competetive recently and I had to disrupt very fast voltron commanders like Rafiq of the Many . Try these: Rapid Hybridization , Pongify , Reality Shift , Krosan Grip and Cyclonic Rift <- this card is great, because in early game you can buy some time, cascading into it isn't bad, but casting it from hand with overload will hurt your opponents so much (casting it at end of opponent's turn means no blockers). Try out Thunderfoot Baloth - trample and +2/+2 to all creatures is sweet, and Selvala's Stampede - after first commander cast you won't have mana to play cards from hand, this card allows to put permanents (not only creatures) and one is guaranteed. Putting creatures from library is also very good. Magus of the Mind if you have one blue mana left after cascades you can sacrifice him (Wanderer gives him haste) and exile 4 cards from top and play them for free (try it out with Strionic Resonator or clones if more mana is avaible)! Look at Kessig Wolf Run - with commander on battlefield and no cards at hand still you can be dangerous. I don't know why you use: Domri Rade - his first ability is some kind of draw but it won't work in every case, second ability is on sorcery speed and that could be too late, Blood Sun distuption isn't very harming and cascading into it would give nothing.

Since the medallion drops the cost by 1, bringing it to cc3, then in turn, using Goreclaw's ability, drop things such as Thunderfoot Baloth or Essence of the Wild for free??
