For TypicalTimmy challenge, Tivadar of Thorn the only Lord. So obscure, Lord isn’t even a recognized creature subtype on Gatherer. Thus, Lord for Lords!

The Great Wanderer

Creature - Lord

Creatures you control with a creature subtype in their ability text get +1/+1


Also, orih25 what do you mean you think yours is better? Better than what?

This challenge was particularly hard. I couldn’t find any concepts that weren’t touched on. Could you give me some examples TypicalTimmy ? Same challenge.

Holy crap, man! Have a rough list of that deck? I want to build a mono-white EDH around Suleiman, Preacher, and Tivadar of Thorn now!

Knight of Cliffhaven could be a potential cut, in my book. If there are very little goblins Tivadar of Thorn could also be a possible cut.

Ok, lemme see...

  • Absolver Thrull - effective even if it isn't blinked.
  • Kor Sanctifiers - doesn't work with flicker but does work with bounce, which you have more of anyway
  • Tivadar of Thorn - niche sideboard card but real good against the Krenko matchup lol
  • Deadeye Harpooner - good blink synergy
  • Angel of Serenity - I'm fairly certain that due to the two paragraph templating if you blink her while the first trigger (removal) is on the stack, her second trigger (return) will happen first and fail to find anything and then the removal becomes essentially permanent. I'm not sure if removing her a second time 'remembers' the same things exiled the first time or not.
  • Saltskitter - does this help you gain life?

@Thorbogl Hey thx :-) i like the idea too!, soon i will add an better description. Kor Firewalker is a very good sideboard card against heavy red decks, thanks for this suggestion. The goblin hate is funny from Tivadar of Thorn, but the deck should handle goblin decks pretty well with the current sideboard.

Hey there, really nice deck idea, i can see aggro players burst out fountains of sweat when facing this deck!

Kor Firewalker seems like a good inclusion, as he got protection from red and adds a decent amount of life, especially when opponents start casting red spells to.

for your sideboard, Tivadar of Thorn against goblins, dont know if they are a problem in your meta.

Frog-Eating Spider 3G

Creature- Spider


When ~ etbs, destroy up to 2 target Frog creatures.

Whenever ~ blocks or is blocked by a frog creature, it gets +10000/+10000, Indestructible, Deathtouch, and Double Strike.

Prevent all damage that would be dealt to ~ by Frog creatures.


Make another card that is overly hating of a creature type (like this is for frogs or Tivadar of Thorn is for goblins)
