Wrecking Ogre Discussion
6 days ago
I have two pseudo-voltron builds. They both run other game changing creatures (in case my commander is Counterspell 'd or Nevermore 'd too many times) but mostly plan on using the general as the wincon
Omnath, Locus of Mana is hilariously fun. If you can turn one mana dork, turn two Omnath, you can swing for 5 turn three, another 10 turn four, then gg turn five. Not many voltron decks can close out games that fast.
I use cards like Rogue's Passage and Bellowing Tanglewurm to push damage through, then cards like Hunter's Insight , Rishkar's Expertise , Soul's Majesty , Regal Force , etc can help carry you into a longer game
Aurelia, the Warleader is one of my wife's decks. Once she hits the board, shit is going down. Wrecking Ogre targeting her is a insta kill, Grafted Exoskeleton as well. Helm of the Host with her or Godo, Bandit Warlord goes infinite
Voltron can be tough if they have answers to your threats, but that's also part of the challenge and part of the fun!

Hey Akki0! I don't like to play infect, so Grafted Exoskeleton is no option for me :/ Wrecking Ogre is a good one, but I personaly think, that it does not fit in the theme properly and the creatures often have protRed.
33 Lands sometimes is a bit risky to play, but you often have at least 1 "ramp", so it works the most times :)

Don't be so hard on yourself. We all gotta start somewhere. W/R is arguably one of the hardest color combos, but this looks fun! +1 from me
Commander's Sphere is functionally better than the cluestone. Coalition Relic can play turn 4 aurelia if you don't miss a land drop. Thought Vessel will save you from scary stuff like Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur.
Gleam of Battle and other high cmc cards are the first to go. It can win the game with aurelia in like two turns if she swings thru; but Wrecking Ogre targeting her can win in one turn. Aurelia + double strike is scary
Anywho, I'd drop down to 36-37 land and fill those slots with more mana rocks, then see what wiggle room you have in the rest to help streamline it. Please check out my fiancee's aurelia deck if you have a moment and tell me what you think! Cheers

Feel free to take a look at my deck and comment what you think of it: Aurelia's Elite
I'm wondering how you fare on powering Aurelia out with only 33 lands, do you feel it's enough with the ramp you have?

Both Grafted Exoskeleton and Wrecking Ogre sound like solid plans. Everything that means one-shoting a player is quite good, because there are many decks that won't give you a second chance once you catch them off guard. I kinda like the Ogre better because it won't give an additional weakness to Aurelia and once it has done its thing it won't flag you as a insane threat anymore in the game.
Etali, Primal Storm is as slow as any other CMC 6 creature but free casting spells is one of the most broken things in the game, specially when you do it without spending cards from your hand. You'll probably have four players to attemp the free casts each attack, and youl'll get to do it twice each turn. I think it's totally worth to give it a try.
Aurelia is the perfect commander to get peak performance from Etali, if it isn't good in this deck it won't be good in any deck at all.

@ReaperDrek I always appreciate the comments, and you were on-point fosho
I likely won't run Infiltration Lens... because I know with my luck I'll swing into a Consecrated Sphinx lmao. My playgroup doesn't really do land destruction; but at the LGS tournaments I'd consider it. I used to run Obliterate & co in Narset. Hero's Blade is a two turn clock with Aurelia for two mana. I'm wondering what could be taken out for it ?
I do kinda like the praetors. If I decide to focus more on aurelia herself then they may come out. Meddling Mage naming aurelia hurt me bad not too long ago though. I try to have somewhat of a go-wide strategy just in case.
I can see what you're saying for all five weenies you mentioned. The two anthem creatures are a little slow, but can be neat with two attack phases. Plague Myr is mostly a mana dork, but it blocks and could win the game randomly. Even with 20 mana ramp options you may only see one or two in a game. I'll take the excess just in case I have to cast her many times
Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker is a grab bag. She may be irrelevant or help immensely. I had her as the commander for a while
I feel like I need to keep the avg cmc down but love all these Timmy cards
