Tyrant-Thanatos on Fighting target creature

1 week ago

702.2b A creature with toughness greater than 0 that’s been dealt damage by a source with deathtouch since the last time state-based actions were checked is destroyed as a state-based action.

701.12a A spell or ability may instruct a creature to fight another creature or it may instruct two creatures to fight each other. Each of those creatures deals damage equal to its power to the other creature.

Deathtouch will cause any damage inflicted by its source to be lethal to creatures. Fight causes the creatures to damage one another, making each creature the source of the damage dealt to the other.

As an example, if an Apex Altisaur fights a Sedge Scorpion, both will be destroyed.

In the example you listed, a 3/4 fighting a 2/3 Deathtouch, both will die. Regardless of when the fight occurs.

Hey, Hello, Hiiii,

I'm looking to get into EDH for my playgroup and I don't wanna buy a precon since we agreed to build our own decks.

We're keeping it fairly casual so I'm not looking for something super competitive just something fun to take out to our games and eventually our lgs for edh night.

I'm looking for something with big dumb creatures like Apex Devastator, Aggressive Mammoth, Apex Altisaur or Craterhoof Behemoth and cards to cheat out big creatures and double my mana, that kind of stuff. Between one and three colors is really more my style, I'm not a fan of four and five color deck but definitely green is a must here.

If you guys suggest a few generals and a theme or tribe that meet up these kinds of criteria it would be awesome, I tried going on gatherer and edhrec but there's so many choices I got confused and I didn't know where to go for more specific infos.

Thanks.

Hey, good budget version of Gishath.

Congregation at Dawn ($2 at CardKingdom) and Mwonvuli Beast Tracker can search for Dinos/Dino and put them/it on top of your library before you attack with Gishath making sure that you cheat a Dino/Dinos onto the battlefield with the attack. Tracker can get any Dino who has trample and there's quite a few including Quartzwood. Shared Summons can get any two creatures into your hand which includes Forerunner and an enrage Dino.

Garruk's Uprising is a good repeatable draw and trample source with Dinos. Getting both these abilities from a three drop enchantment is helpful especially with Quartzwood. Rhythm of the Wild makes Gishath uncounterable as well as a haste enabler for other Dinos or a +1/+1 counter source to help against Marauding/Forerunner's damage to a creature. Jeska's Will can make ramp to cast a fast Gishath for as low as five mana. Make seven or more red mana with Will then add any one white mana and any one green mana.

Otepec Huntmaster as a ramp source is better than Kinjalli's Caller because Huntmaster is also a haste enabler for a Dino and rarely will you have white mana turn one to cast Caller. Apex Altisaur is a big Dino who's an upgrade for Burning Sun's Avatar repeatable fight with enrage and it fights an opponent's creature when it ETB.

Cinder Glade and Canopy Vista would help color fixing because then Farseek, Skyshroud Claim, Mountain Valley can search for a dual land and Battle lands have interaction with lots of basic lands. Path of Ancestry is a good budget Rainbow land for tribal since repeatable scry is helpful. Mosswort Bridge's hideaway can easily be triggered with Dinos. Some other budget lands are Battlefield Forge, Naya Panorama, Ash Barrens.


Cards to consider cutting:

Good luck with your deck.

Thank you for your suggestions!

I’ve been thinking about putting back Garruk's Uprising, but was hesitant because of the 4 power requirement. I totally forgot about it being able to give trample to all my creatures. Cutting Vanquisher's Banner makes a lot of sense now, I thought it was an auto-include because of the dino’s +1/+1. I’m definitely switching them.

I’ve been looking for an Apex Altisaur since I started building this deck, along with a Bellowing Aegisaur. Don’t want to pay for shipping for just those two, but I’ll include them in the deck once available. Replacing Burning Sun's Avatar and Thundering Spineback for them sounds like a good choice.

I need to get a Rhythm of the Wild and an Exotic Orchard.

I also opened a Commander Legends draft box 2 days ago and was lucky enough to pull a Jeweled Lotus. I’m thinking of adding it here too for a possible turn 2 Gishath. :) I also got a Command Tower, Arcane Signet, Three Visits and Path of Ancestry. I’ve been meaning to remove as much tap lands as I can. I will also get some check lands and pain lands in a few days through a trade. I’ll update this deck over the weekend.

What bothers me most is how much ramp spells and how many mana rocks should I have? Am I running enough lands at 36?

Thank you!

Hey, nice first budget version of Gishath. Good job on the win.

Some budget cards to consider adding:

Several of these cards are in Commander Legends, the new Magic set just released. The prices of these cards will be decreasing.

I am so sorry! I completely missed your comment on my deck! I just changed it a bit and noticed. :(

Thank for your praise, I really appreciate it!!! <3

Really love your deck! It's fun, and to the point. Also there are a bunch of cards in here I've never seen before like Apex Altisaur and Deglamer. I'm actually still looking through this and taking notes! XD

More stuff!

I'd cut Gruul Ragebeast as it isn't a may ability--so it can be a bit risky if, say, you play a Seedborn Muse or recast your Commander after you get it into play. I'd replace it with an Apex Altisaur, a pseudo-boardwipe on a massive body.

I'd also consider cutting Champion of Rhonas--all of your other <5 power creatures are POWERHOUSES, but the Champion is subject to being blocked out and only being able to be activated once. My suggestion is a Sneak Attack: it can allow for turns where you drop 3 beaters out of your hand in one turn, and kill someone so you don't care that they are sacrificed. Apropos of your creatures being sacrificed... do you want more recursion? Paleoloth would be your best bet for that, I think it's even better than the Greenwarden.
