It's always great to feel that much positivity from you, so heads up for that.

Btw, Blazing Hellhound might be an interesting addition.

MunchingAberration on Heck, it's a Doggo Deck

Mongrel Pack makes more hounds, and makes opponents think twice about blocking. I know you're splashing green/black, but if you're using 4 Concerted Efforts, going wide with tokens would be pretty nice. It does drive up your CMC.

Blazing Hellhound allows you to sacrifice creatures/your whole board to deal that last bit of damage, or get value before a board wipe. I'd be worried about playing all these low CMC dogs, and then getting blown out by Sphere of Safety, or Toxic Deluge, or something. The sacrifice source gives you a bit more interaction with something like that. Also, late game you could sac Underworld Cerberus and replay all your fallen doggos (and then sac them again, you monster).

Also, I agree with the above, Isamaru, Hound of Konda

merrowMania on Horde? More Like a Mess!

The deck looks good!

My only concerns/suggestions are:

Flamekin Spitfire over Magmaw or Blazing Hellhound for better Ad Naus. Probably over Hellhound, since the Hellhound line is stopped by Swords to Plowshares.

Is Signal the Clans efficient enough? I assume it gets Druid and the Recruiters. That seems way too slow if you don't hit Druid.

Fireball over Torment of Hailfire for better Ad Naus.

Triton on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

I decided to try my hand at making a competitive Horde of Notions deck, and I believe it could potentially be moved up a half step.

I had recently discovered the Hermit Druid combo is actually pretty good in the deck (there are a few elementals that sac themselves for damage like Magmaw and Blazing Hellhound) and then midway through building the deck, it had the same initial combo as in the Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck featured. I then based it off the shell of that deck and created a deck that I believe is a great way to use Horde of Notions.

Here's the deck, the name is kind of a working title but that doesn't matter too much:

Horde? More Like a Mess!

Commander / EDH Triton


One of the downsides of the deck is that it's a one-trick pony, so once people know what the deck does, they know how to stop the main combo.

Let me know what you all think!

I suggest Purphoros, God of the Forge, as he is nuts with tokens, especially Prossh, Skyraider of Kher and Tempt with Vengeance. I also second Cryptolith Rite, and maybe Fires of Yavimaya, as Tana's tokens instantly become fodder for the Blazing Hellhound. Instant pings, and removal! Plus, in a pinch, you can sacrifice Fires of Yavimaya to pump Tana.

Might I suggest Might Makes Right and Blazing Hellhound? It would really spice things up and Might Makes Right would ensure you a card or two, provided that you have the highest power in a creature! Hope this helps your deck!

EpicFreddi on Enter the Void

Cards to cut here are: Blazing Hellhound, Cathartic Adept and Lurking Informant because all three don't really add to your gameplan. Leyline of the Void for Sideboard. Cut Phyrexian Totem and Meteorite as well as Ruthless Disposal (for disposal you could play Tragic Slip
