n0bunga Thematic Tomfoolery

Hey folks, I'm the resident dork that tries ever-so hard to jam themes and gimmicks - both flavourful and humerous - into any deck.

It started first with my baby:

and a simple joke among friends that the Gitrog Monster merely needs to sit as the lands wash through him - much like the King Zora.

From that point onward, I've had instances where the theme came first and the deck followed. It's almost expected now, that I have some ridiculous or reaching theme associated with any deck. And that's part of the love I have for deckbuilding in general.

I mainly play EDH; it's what got me back into the game as a whole. However I've been playing Modern at a competitive level more often (and 0-2 dropping far too often). I dabbled in Legacy with:

and despite having little experience with the deck, the subtleties in the interactions within an archetype like Manaless Dredge hit all the right notes for me.

is my current paper build (yes, it is mostly foiled out) of Modern Dredge. I decided to go back to my roots and finally build the modern version of my most beloved archetype.

This is my current paper deck. Arcum is insanely competitive and has some explosive early game win potential. Prepare to be hated.

After watching the video I’d definitely agree that Worship should be in the side.

What was the reason for leaving out Aether Vial in this?

Awesome suggestions, thank you! Yes the counter-game is definitely punishing. On top of that, Grafdigger's Cage is also quite menacing, especially when you're against an artifact control deck and they Whir of Invention it out in response to you casting Eldritch Evolution. Now THAT is a miserable interaction.

It is tricky, BBE is sort of a project being worked on. So far it seems pretty cool. Other decks using Cragganwick Cremator have instead run 1 Scavenging Ooze, 2 Tireless Tracker and 1 Nullhide Ferox instead, but I like the added pressure BBE gives, and the card advantage we get from it.

Vexing Shusher might actually be a really good idea. It's easy to cast, and is another 2 cmc creature to Eldritch into the Creamator, if needed. On top of that it could make Eldritch uncounterable.

All fantastic suggestions mate, thank you!

Need some feedback on a rough concept idea of a competitive as possible Varina for...maybe Tier 3? Possibly 2 depending on its potential consistency?

My idea is a hulkless Cephalid Breakfast combo. Sans-green is rough, but Varina also gives us some utility in making additional creatures to sac to Dread Return.

I’m missing like 20 cards so would love the collaborative effort.

Awesome explanation mate. I had a feeling it may be too narrow for need.

Thoughts on Bind to counter Sisay, Arcum, Teferi, Thrasios, Yisan, etc, and get a potential dredge trigger if Gitrog or a discard outlet aren't present, but you've binned a dredger early on?

LOOOOOOL!

I probably would have gotten more bang for my buck that way.

1621dudes it was a bad point in time financially, so I unfortunately had to part with a binders worth of alters I had commissioned over the years. It is a real shame, but I'm glad they'll continue to live on here!

Another GRN card I'm looking at is Vraska, Golgari Queen...the plus ability seems super synergistic. It's got a built in Abrupt decay and a potential alt-wincon with the ultimate.

I can re-add them :)
