Avenger of Zendikar Discussion

TypicalTimmy on Stompy hub?

Aren't Zoo and Stompy the same thing? Large creatures that usually either have trample or gain trample?

I know Zoo, traditional, is a lack of synergy. Just a bunch of titanic creatures who each impact the boardstate on their own way.

Usually we might think if creatures like Avenger of Zendikar , Ruric Thar, the Unbowed , and Glorybringer but there are smaller creatures too, such as Predator Ooze , Reclamation Sage , and Kird Ape .

But at their core, the reason you have highly impactful creatures is so you can overwhelm and push through all defenses once you drop something to give them all trample.

Stompy is sort of, in my opinion, a subset of Zoo where you focus a bit differently. Zoo seeks to use one-shot creatures who impact their board with immediate presence whereas Stompy probably looks to sling and stack spells and abilities such as Rancor , Titanic Growth and Titan's Strength .

So I mean I guess they are different? But Stompy is really just a subset of Zoo.

I'm messing around with a Yarok deck too right now, and out of the cards you've got under maybe right now, 4 that I have in mine that I think work well are Solemn Simulacrum , Mulldrifter , Hostage Taker , and Avenger of Zendikar . I'd also probably take out Gigantoplasm , just because it's etb effect wouldn't get a double use with Yarok's ability (at least, i'm pretty sure it wouldn't, I could be wrong)

Hey thecatch22!

I saw your reddit post and I wanted to be encouraging and say this list looks good! It is just like Amaz's Yarok | Game Knights #28.

If Commandeer is your pet favorite, I'd say "thievery" is your guidepost for this deck.

I spy Deadeye Navigator + Peregrine Drake + Agent of Treachery (infinite combo)... or a big Villainous Wealth . Maybe Torment of Hailfire ?

You could also do landfall or landsac with Titania, Protector of Argoth , Ob Nixilis, the Fallen etc. A lot of people seem to be doing this.

Blade of Selves and Helm of the Host are great benchwarmers just like Panharmonicon .

Wild Pair ? Sire of Stagnation ? Avenger of Zendikar ? God-Eternal Rhonas ?

Definitely play Lotus Cobra .

Most of what I listed are just extra wincons. 'Seems like you're doing fine. I don't see anything too funky (eg. Lifeline ).

I'd recommend putting together a list of anything that catches your eye so you have a pool of 100-200 cards to brew from.

Very nice list! I am missing a concrete win-con however. Like a Craterhoof Behemoth or an Avenger of Zendikar

I plan on going for a mix. I want to reanimate cards like Avenger of Zendikar and big token making creatures, plus some just good stuff big creatures like the new Vilis, Broker of Blood . I have some cards for elf tribal, might just add some of those in for some good ramp (Looking at you Priest of Titania . I'm not sure if mixing these themes will be too big of a problem, I'm hoping they won't.

Neat deck. The first thing that jumps out to me is you might want some more graveyard hate. I'd say Scavenger Grounds would be a good fix for that since you could put cycling deserts in for multiple purges. Speaking of lands, Drownyard Temple seems like an easy addition given the synergy with the signature spell and the Frog. Other than that it seems like more landfall triggers are called for like Avenger of Zendikar and/or Rampaging Baloths for further value or Eternity Vessel and/or any of the life gainers to help mitigate the Chasm.

As for how to free up space, I notice you're missing a card so you already have a free slot and, while obviously good, that Liliana seems better placed in a self-mill zombie deck.

Have you considered Avenger of Zendikar ?

Hey, just a heads up, Primeval Titan is banned in commander, but if your play group is okay with it, keep it. There's a reason it's banned :).

As for suggestions, I'd recommend taking out Gruul Signet and replacing it with a land ramp spell like Rampant Growth or Cultivate . Lands are much safer than artifacts in EDH.

I would also replace some of your sorceries with more creatures so that you can use Mina and Denn's second ability a little more.

Lastly, I'd recommend the following cards:

Hope this helps! If you need some suggestions on what to cut let me know!
