Under Prosshure

Commander / EDH* B/R/G (Jund) Competitive

Sirius2 Score: Unrated


Description

Recently traded for some pretty nice stuff.

Sideboard stuff is things I'm looking to fit into the deck. I think I used to focus too much on reacting to the board, right now the way I play is I need to win ASAP because a Prossh player at the table is pretty much the primary enemy of everybody there.

Should I get signets?

I have not yet made substitutions for the cards in the sideboard, but I'm thinking of taking out Mikaeus, and thus his friends Deathbringer Throctar and Woodfall Primus. Also considering dropping Genesis Wave. When it works, it really works, but more often than not I find myself holding onto it hoping to get a huge mana bomb with xenagos. Also thinking of getting rid of Rakdos Charm, since graveyards aren't a big issue and I've got plenty of other artifact removal. On the fence with Earthcraft, I haven't actually played it yet in all of the games I've played with this deck.

Here I'm going to go over the cards sitting in the sideboard and what they do to make everybody else's lives miserable.

Cultivate - Makes Prossh come out faster.

Sword of Feast and Famine - I got around to getting one of the swords and I'd like to think it'll do nice things.

Song of the Dryads - solid removal for an enemy commander

Oracle of Mul Daya - Ramp. I'm somewhat on the fence about her, because while I don't really care if people see what I draw for most cards, I don't want them to be playing around certain surprises I have lying in wait for them.

Mirri's Guile - Synchronizes very well with Oracle. Basically a free Top on each upkeep.

Not of This World - I found this the other day, and I was surprised at how cheap it was. It looks like it would be pretty solid protection for Prossh or anything else that happens to be huge/huge.

Deathrite Shaman - Clear their graveyard, ping them, get me more mana at the expense of their (or my) fetches.

Anger - Hastehastehastehaste

Reclamation Sage - It's okay.

Other cards in the sideboard :

Dragonlair Spider - It's a good token producer, but it pales in comparison to Prossh. Not sure whether it or Dragon Broodmother would be better for multiplayer.

Goblin Sharpshooter - He can do a lot of work when there's a sac outlet and a bunch of tokens out, but if you don't have that he's kind of a dud.

Attrition - I thought the activation cost was too expensive, but it's a decent enough sac outlet for Prossh.

Lignify - SotD but not as good. Still good though.

Night Soil & Necrogenesis - Simple graveyard hate.

Yes, I have a Food Chain, but I don't play it. People expect it and it's the first thing they try to find answers for.

Why the hell is Demonic Tutor in the Maybeboard?

Because I haven't actually physically put it in the deck yet, but it's the first change I'm making.
