Traxos, Scourge of Kroog Discussion

andriygoblin on Sarkhan's Stomping

Hey there. So here is my constructed feedback, but before I want to mention that I peeked at your maybe board and noticed Traxos, Scourge of Kroog which I totally forgot about and it is another creature that triggers board wipe for Sarkhan's Unsealing. So your Thud is an interesting combo way to go yet if you are rolling that route I would drop Nullhide Ferox into Sideboard and instead go for 4 copies of Thud. I would also cut your 4 drops - you have a little too many. Instead small creature like the Pelt Collector - he takes most of the removal and att nation to himself early in the game and gives you more freedom to play bigger guys with safety. I like to run Wayward Swordtooth to combo off nicely with Experimental Frenzy and it is also a dinosaur to allow me access to Thunderherd Migration.

To help give you more ways to abuse the helix (because currently it’s just nettle who can start the combo-off it), i’d recommend a playset of Traxos, Scourge of Kroog

I would fix your mana base first. Average EDH decks have 45 mana sources, and Tiana definitely needs it, so consider more lands or rocks like Gilded Lotus/Boros Cluestone/Commander's Sphere/Fire Diamond/Marble Diamond etc etc. Fiery Mantle/Dragon Breath could replace Mark of Fury/Goblin War Paint? Guise of Fire/Bonds of Faith/Prophetic Ravings could replace Bloodshed Fever/Hammerhand/Cartouche of Zeal? Graceblade Artisan is a great duplicate of Champion of the Flame, it could replace Favored Hoplite/Call To Serve. If you want more combat map control you could run Goblin Spymaster/Overwhelming Splendor. Immolation/Inferno Fist are good duplicates of Ordeal of Purphoros.

Other than these replacements, I think you made a fine deck. I would include more finishers like Shiv's Embrace/Splinter Twin/Elemental Mastery/Burning Anger/Battle Mastery, or include a combo with Battered Golem/Paradox Engine/Endbringer/Traxos, Scourge of Kroog. I think some weaker finishers in this deck right now are Giant Spectacle/Lightning Reflexes/Madcap Skills/Lightning Talons. And I think Gift of Immortality is alright, but it doesn't protect your auras in extension if a creature-only board wipe happens, so another indestructible spells would be better.

I like the neat combo of Pariah and Tiana, and your enchantment based draw engines + Auratog/Faith Healer is another neat combo. Curse of Opulence is a great include, it's a one drop that adds influences damage away from you and toward your 120 combined life goal. Umbra Mystic/Anax and Cymede/Heavenly Blademaster are also great includes!

Agreed, I think Traxos, Scourge of Kroog has so much potential. I wanted to make Traxos, Scourge of Kroog great in the standard scene upon seeing Traxos, Scourge of Kroog for the first time, it's just figuring out what type of deck he could shine in. Hopefully there is enough counterspells to protect Traxos, Scourge of Kroog long enough to beat opponents into submission.

I ran a build with Traxos, Scourge of Kroog two seasons ago and I would STRONGLY suggest that you add 4x Voltaic Servant to your deck.

It lets you constantly attack with then untap Traxos, plus allows it to act as a blacker when it first enters the field.

I am always open to feedback and suggestions! I am currently brewing a homemade W/U control deck centered around using historics as introduced in Dominaria, and centering the focus around Traxos, Scourge of Kroog. The big idea is to control the board until I am able to get Traxos out and keep bringing in historic cards to untap him to swing in.

MrReynard has some good points there. What i found is that needing all 3 colors before we can attack at all is kind of awkward. This forces you to play lots of slowlands, to the point where you need to be willing to play a slowland on turn 3. Because of this i dont put 1 drops, and use minimal 3 drops to offset the curve, making room for that likelyhood. You also need lots of card advantage to find you pieces, so i add even more slowlands for that through Memorial to Genius and Memorial to Unity. Those along with a playset of anticipate mean that i find 2 copies of the dragon every game. If they get targeted though things go bad, so you cant just run walls and the arcades. You need something that deals damage even if the dragon is not there. Traxos, Scourge of Kroog and Gargoyle Sentinel have been great for me.

I run 1 copy of Traxos, Scourge of Kroog and 2 copies of Gargoyle Sentinel in my wall deck, as ive noticed that i need more stuff that can attack regardless of whether or not Arcades, the Strategist is on the board. He just gets focused down too much. I also run Shalai, Voice of Plenty to try and defend my board.
