mtg, mtg cards, magic the gathering, gaming, geeks
So... apparently, I have an irrational love of "Banding". Not just because it's strong (although that's a large part of it) but because it's so ridiculous in terms of both mechanics and flavour. I stumbled upon the Bandland cycle (here represented by Unholy Citadel and Adventurers' Guildhouse ) and instantly thought "this is what I want to do with Kresh". The deck already had a tonne of Legendary creatures in it, so why not?
Although the banding is something that's fun to get going, the deck works fine without it. It rarely enters the foray and even more rarely becomes relevant. Still, the deck performs pretty solidly, even if it has mana troubles at times...
EDIT: at the advice of my good friend (a very competent and competitive EDH player) a lot of the flashy spells have been removed for utility cards. After all, in a proper environment, the deck needs ways of protecting itself.
Add card:Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper it will probably be fun.
I really like the Mage Slayer in here
My friend made a Kresh list that is pretty brutal in our local meta (I think bloodbraids 2 is the list but im unsure how up to date it is). Off the top of my head I would recommend Pestilence , Pyrohemia , Fallen Ideal , Phyrexian Dreadnought . But it may be better to plot with him lol. +1 from me
Imo if you're running black/red, let alone Kresh, you HAVE to have creature destroy in the deck, a must in EDH. I'd recommend cards like Terminate Dreadbore Rend Flesh Eyeblight's Ending Tribute to Hunger Tragic Slip Victim of Night Ultimate Price Doomblade Murder Go for the Throat there's of course more. I would also recommend cards like Visara the Dreadful Avatar of Woe Royal Assassin . If you can combo Visara the Dreadful or Avatar of Woe with a Thornbite Staff it's a board wipe for the most part and Kresh the Bloodbraided becomes HUGE.
