Anax, Hardened in the Forge

Anax, Hardened in the Forge

Legendary Enchantment Creature — Demigod

Anax's power is equal to your devotion to red. (Each in the mana costs of permanents you control counts toward your devotion to red.)

Whenever Anax or another nontoken creature you control dies (is put into the graveyard from the battlefield), create a 1/1 red Satyr creature token with "This creature can't block." If the creature had power 4 or greater, create two of those tokens instead.

CaptSillva on Tainted Sacrifice

I feel like you may be a bit too all in on cards like Poison-Tip Archer. It really feels like you're trying to play aristocrats, but Jund just isn't the best combo for it. Your deck can make decent amount of tokens, but most of these death triggers require actual creatures to be dying and you only run 26, most of which are cards you don't actually want to sacrifice. You also aren't even running nearly enough sacrifice outlets, certainly your commander makes a good sacrifice outlet, but 3 mana is a lot to pay if you plan to do so repeatedly across the course of the game, and this commander is fragile to removal and will get costly quickly.

I'd likely cut down on cards like Toggo, Goblin Weaponsmith, Anax, Hardened in the Forge, and Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper. Then focus more on value generation, cheap cards that generate more resources. Such as Mycosynth Wellspring, Ichor Wellspring, Goldspan Dragon, Tireless Tracker, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, and Courser of Kruphix.

SWAPS

  1. Memnite relatively vanilla, and somehow quite expensive towards our budget (~$5). Instead Legion Loyalist which can also trigger (even on a top deck), and gives us much-needed evasion.
  2. Phyrexian Walker also pretty vanilla, replacing with Grim Initiate . Why? Grim gives us something on a board wipe, to help us recover
  3. Auratouched Mage (which also comes out with the next card).. it isn't quite as broken as it may seem. Gets chump blocked and doesn't do quite much. Add in Goblin Rabblemaster to give us more dudes
  4. Breath of Fury comes out if Aura Mage does, it's a combo that isn't too great. Let's add in Anax, Hardened in the Forge to give us more board wipe survivability
  5. Victory's Envoy is a tough cut, but is a bit slow. Only is very good if we have gobs of tokens. Add in Mother of Runes for obvious reasons

Anax, Hardened in the Forge , Archetype of Aggression , Garruk's Packleader , Nylea's Forerunner , Quartzwood Crasher and Warmonger Hellkite might be some cards of interest. My Strength Incarnate deck might have some other useful cards, but those are the best I can think of.

NicodaPico on Extus, Release the Avatar

I like this deck alot (I even made a version of my own) and it's got alot of pieces that i run as well. This deck is kinda tricky cause the two halves are similar yet want to go in different directions. It seems you went with the front half to completely wipe away your opponents boards and get all your etb sac'ers back with extus and that works really well. Extus is great for getting cards back to your hand, but if you're looking for more card draw to get more instants and sorceries back to your hand might i suggest Grim Haruspex and Midnight Reaper as each etb sac a creature gets you a draw. Anax, Hardened in the Forge is also a powerhouse in making you more tokens when your creatures die to keep the train rolling. But this deck looks really sweet!

seshiro_of_the_orochi on Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge Deck ideas

For reference: Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge

I guess, besides card draw and ramp, you'll want three things for Gadrak:

1: treasure production. That's easy in red. You can cast things like Pirate's Pillage and especially Brass's Bounty . Dockside Extortionist is perfect for Gadrak, if you are willing and able to akquire it. You could also do a dwarven route with Magda, Brazen Outlaw .

2: treasure pay-offs. Goldspan Dragon is insane here. Also, Bludgeon Brawl and Ghirapur AEther Grid might be pretty useful.

3: Creatures with death triggers. Anax, Hardened in the Forge and similar cards seem great here. Also, many goblins do damage when they die.

HarleythePanther on Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded deck for standard

1 year ago

Over the past few days, I've been attempting to build a standard deck around each Theros God. So far, I've built decks with Thassa, Heliod, Erebos and Athreos.

I would like to build a deck with Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded for standard, but I'm having trouble finding cards that will synergize with the God. Any help would be awesome!

(I do not have a deck built yet)

Just some suggestions ;)

Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit - makes smallest dude a little more swoll; additionally combo potential - put it in from your board

Anax, Hardened in the Forge - value town/sudo wrath/removal protection on a body

Archon of Emeria - rule of law on a flying body slaps in a fair aggro deck

Aven Mindcensor - F#$% their tutors and fetches

Ethersworn Canonist - artifact rule of law is still a rule of law and keeps things fair

Giver of Runes - redundancy with your Mother of Runes is pretty cool

Goblin Cratermaker - can take down a problem bear or a problem ugin

Magus of the Moon - might be out of budget but if you got one this card is very frustrating for most players

Phyrexian Revoker - needle with legs

Ranger-Captain of Eos - tiny dude tutor combined with a built in silence it earns its' price tag

Samurai of the Pale Curtain - 2 words. Fox Samurai.
