Welcome to the farm! Take on the role of a modern farmer pumpkin-headed affront to nature in Farming: the Gathering! Immerse yourself in a huge open world loaded with fun content: exciting artifacts, creatures, crops, gameplay mechanics and a detailed interplanar environment!

Grow a variety of crops and raise sheep, goats, pigs, cattle and more! Take care of your farm by dusting and irrigating your crops. While you can engage in sustainable agriculture through effective composting techniques and natural fertilization methods to grow Explosive Vegetation, you may also conspire to raise some Xenograft Arcane Adaptation crops and animals for maximum value. Whatever you choose, remember, as farmer Ezoc once said, "When something dies, all things benefit. Well okay, just our things."

You will need a lot Karametra, God of Harvests help to run a Teneb, the Harvester farm. And you'll need the right Unscythe, Killer of Kings (and do not forget all of the Wingrattle Scarecrow!). Just remember, your hard work on the farm will Reap great rewards as you Cultivate the Cream of the Crop and take it to one of the local markets. Then you'll be able to celebrate the bounteous harvest and enjoy many more seasons of happy and productive farming.

Comments, upvotes, and suggestions are welcome, as I aim to be the best farmer around!

Is this meant to be an actual deck or is this just to troll? I don't mean offense but could you help me understand how to use this deck effectively?

Cole6000 No worries. Yes, it's an actual deck that I've built. And it's actually somewhat playable in a casual group. Reaper King can actually be pretty oppressive if tuned up a lot, as his second ability can turn into multiple free Vindicates a turn. But I loved the card, and I wanted to build around it. So I used the farming theme was as mostly a deck-building limitation to keep his power in level with other decks in my playgroup as well as for fun.

Basically, the deck focuses on making creatures (through token production or graveyard recursion) that trigger Reaper King's second ability (through actual scarecrows, mimic scarecrows like Adaptive Automaton or Metallic Mimic, or using Conspiracy and Xenograft naming scarecrow to turn all your creatures into scarecrows that will then all be buffed by Reaper King and the mimic scarecrows) to wipe out your opponents' boards. As a bonus, you have a lot of things that can trigger upon the death of a creature -- Deathreap Ritual, Harvester of Souls, Compost, Reaper from the Abyss, Reaper of the Wilds -- or that can benefit from having things in your opponent's graveyard -- Scavenging Ooze, Night Soil, Teneb, the Harvester. There's a few sac outlets (High Market, Trading Post, Scarecrone, Greater Harvester, Mycoloth) to sac your own tokens or creatures when beneficial. And then there's ramp, support, and graveyard recursion cards to fill in the rest.

It's not very tuned at all, as that's kinda the point. There's several cards that could be swapped out for better or more powerful ones (for example, a kicked Rite of Replication on Reaper King results in 25 vindicates). But it's a fun casual deck. Hopefully that explanation makes sense. I'm happy to clarify anything--this deck has been a fun project of mine for a while.

Painter's Servant is quite expensive scarecrow for this build, but can buff Reap and other green-now-also-black creatures with Creakwood Liege.

acefalo: Painter's Servant would be cool but I think he's banned in commander. Thanks for the suggestion though!

Splozy: I wouldn't even know where to begin to make a legacy deck from this. If you figure it out, let me know!
