Woodfall Primus Discussion

Rurik on Ghave, Guru of +1/+1

A friend of mine plays a Ghave commander deck. Here are some suggestions:

Mycoloth.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + creatures with persist such as Kitchen Finks, Woodfall Primus and Puppeteer Clique if you have a sacrifice outlet like Viscera Seer creates infinite effects.

Prismatic Omen + Emeria, The Sky Ruin for which you might need Idyllic Tutor and Sylvan Scrying.

Genesis + Eternal Witness.

Archangel of Thune.

Armorcraft Judge.

Cathars' Crusade.

Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Deathgreeter.

Sigil Captain.

Reveillark + Karmic Guide + Clone Shell + Altar of the Brood + a sacrifice outlet.

Hopefully you found some of these suggestions useful. GLHF.

Remove anything that doesn't say, "you may draw a card when a creature enters" or you might just deck yourself with your all-cheating. Momentous Fall, Soul's Majesty, or Life's Legacy could probably draw much better than Elemental Bond. With all the card draw this deck does, some redundancy with maximum hand size helps a lot. Spellbook, Library of Leng, Thought Vessel

I'm thinking a Brass Squire would be a nice inclusion, especially with some of my suggestions, or just because you move a lot of equipment around. Helm of the Host, can let you copy Grothama and have it fight itself for 20 cards drawn.

There are two big glaring weaknesses of this deck: Flyers, and removal. For removal best to worst: Beast Within, Song of the Dryads, Karn Liberated, Argentum Armor, Steel Hellkite, Spine of Ish Sah remove anything. Reclamation Sage, Acidic Slime, Bramblecrush, Woodfall Primus can slow down your opponents while building your board.

Never go without graveyard interaction, Tormod's Crypt, Scavenging Ooze, or Relic of Progenitus will put an end to the Spore Frog + Meren of Clan Nel Toth combo, Archaeomancer + Time Warp, and other shenanigans

Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar and Ulvenwald Hydra are both giant reach creatures that hang back on D. They can fight Grothama and live too, just be sure to Fog so they don't go attacking with 10 damage marked on them. Tornado Elemental, Whirlwind, or Hurricane can deal with your archetypal Angel, Demon, or Dragon, tribal decks. Alternatively, Deadly Recluse or Hornet Queen will make no one want to attack you

While your practical experience will have to come first, Splendid Agony, Serrated Arrows and Incremental Blight seem mediocre to me.

Speaking of Persist, you might also want to consider Rendclaw Trow, Puppeteer Clique and/or Woodfall Primus.

You currently have 10 cards to cut. Here's a few I would consider ditching:

  1. Paradox Engine is a fantastic card, but you don't need it. Unless it is used to go infinite, you generally have better things to do with 5 mana, even if it does help ramp on the next turn.

  2. Catacomb Sifter - you have lots of ramp, you don't need this.

  3. Woodfall Primus - way too much mana for its effect, even with persist. Does not fit in well with your primary gameplan, and cannot be used to clear potential blockers.

  4. Puppeteer Clique - cool card, doesn't do much for your deck.

  5. Meren of Clan Nel Toth - you don't have enough good ways to really abuse this, and her use as a non-commander is pretty limited.

  6. Dictate of Erebos - another strong card that doesn't need to be in this deck.

  7. Living Death - you don't need this, and you have enough removal that you'll be just as likely to return the large threat you previously killed.

Tawnos's Wand might be worth adding.

You should also switch Mask of Avacyn for Lightning Greaves--the ability to protect your commander the turn it is played is well worth the reduction in power/toughness.

VETJasper on Muldrotha Combo/Valuetide

Thanks again. Infinite mana combos are a consideration, although I'd probably go for something that can be tutored with Protean Hulk or Tooth and Nail such as Deadeye Navigator + Palinchron . Because I already have kill combos with those cards infinite mana has always felt a bit redundant. I also don't have many ways to draw more cards on my turn so it seems hard to make full use of infinite mana.

Woodfall Primus seems good, but if I have Mikaeus, the Unhallowed out I'm already very close to killing. He usually never even hits the board without his combo pieces entering with him. Infinite Woodfall Primus seems a little redundant as a result.

Glen Elendra Archmage is busted and should probably be in the deck.

Dream Halls is cool, but again I don't have very many ways to draw a lot of cards on my turn. I'd also need a way to consistently sac it at the end of my turn. Might be good for going for an explosive winning turn when I already have a lot of cards and just need to break through a Tormod's Crypt though.

also Woodfall Primus would be nasty in this deck with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed

I can speak from experience at my pre release Helm of the Host is likely going to be a format staple for Commander.

Since it triggers at your combat step its a lot easier to ensure at least a single trigger before unless you see a lot of spot removal in your meta. And getting even one trigger off something like Hornet Queen or Woodfall Primus is pretty damn good.
