Big hitters with Weenie Wall

Commander / EDH Aggro Counters Four Color

Wolfrage76


Description

Make big things while your weenies multiply. Repeat as required.

OK, so my Things and less Thingies Ezuri deck was originally supposed to be based on having a bunch of heavy hitters while generating a weenie wall by generating a ton of tokens. That deck changed over time and didn't perform the way I wanted it to. So after playing my But mom, I'm sooooo spoooorrreeedddd! Spore deck, I decided to make some changes. This is what I came up with, Version 1.0.

Command Beacon is there because my CMDR becomes an instant target when she comes out and that helps get her back one more time cheaply. The hexproof/indestructible giving cards are to protect her too mainly.

Combo: Ashnod's Altar + Cathars' Crusade + Ghave, Guru of Spores - Awwww yeeeessss. Infinite colorless mana...

Always add in command beacon, might as well. Adding aura shards would be nice, but more importantly add hardened scale. Take out blood artist for literally anything else that adds counters to your creatures such as forgotten ancient

Thanks, I think I'll keep Blood Artist as it works well against my usual group but got rid of the Zulaport Cutthroat for Forgotten Ancient. Maybe I'll take out Blood Artist for Ichor Rats when that card arrives so I can setup an alt win condition.

Now to figure out what to replace with Hardened Scales and Command Beacon.

I'd suggest looking into the black and blue Myojin. Myojin of Night's Reach and Myojin of Seeing Winds. Atraxa's proliferate ability allows them to remain indestructible while activating their rediculously powerful abilities every round. Keep your opponents hands at zero, or fill yours well past the max.

Nice build, some other cards to consider. Experiment Kraj, Inexorable Tide, Hardened Scales.

Considering you have a fair amount of creatures with high casting cost, have you not considered ramp cards such as Kodama's Reach, Cultivate, Burgeoning, and Exploration?

I was going to say I rarely have a bunch of lands in my hand to make those cards worth it, but I just got back from a match where those REALLY would have helped lol. I have each of them but not sure what I'd replace. I can probably fit Exploration in though. Thanks for the feedback and upvote! :D

What exactly do you mean by cutthroat? Currently this deck is very casual in appearance.

In my usual group, there's very little social involved, everyone is doing everything they can to win. So I want to make my deck more competitive. When many games end up being 3v1, I can't be casual.

Going 3 v 1 does not inherently mean that the playgroup is competitive. For instance, you are somehow lacking Swords to Plowshares in this list. That is a very strange oversight. If you want your deck to be competitive, you need to have early interaction (spells that interact with your opponents on the stack or on the board at cmc 0-3) and a win condition that comes out early enough to finish the game in one or two cards. Or you can make a stax variant that is much grindier, interacting with your opponents with static effects like Tangle Wire or Winter Orb. You also aren't running a single tutor effect, and you're in black. Civic Saber is horrible, and I highly recommend cutting it as well as other things for Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor, etc.

Creature beat down like this with Thallids is simply not a competitive list. I suggest looking at this list. While it is a different theme (walkers as opposed to tokens), I firmly believe that a stax variant of Atraxa is better than a beatdown plan, particularly in a competitive environment.

I disagree about Civic Saber - its quick and cheap to get into play on my commander and makes her an 8/8 flyer that kills players in 3 turns or less.

I play Atraxa and I like that you can build with her in so many way.

Atraxa become a 8/4 witch Civic SaberYou don't miss some wrath ? Like Merciless Eviction, Duneblast, or Black Sun's Zenith can be nice with Prolif.

And I agree a bit with buildingadeck, maybe you can try to add more tutors or some cheap removals.(but it depends on your meta)

Sorry yeah, 8/4 - whoops! Dunno what I was thinking.

I'm adding 2 tutors to the deck, and I like the idea of Merciless evicition. The deck was built essentially built with cards I already owned, which is why certain cards never made it into the deck but I'll be picking up individual cards.

The best on-color wrath is Pernicious Deed. Toxic Deluge and maybe a BSZ are worth running. Spot removal is meta dependent, but tutors are not. There is no reason not to be running Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Mystical Tutor, and probably Diabolic Intent, though that one is a little iffy
