Clackbridge Troll

Creature — Troll

Trample, haste

When Clackbridge Troll enters the battlefield, target opponent creates three 0/1 white Goat creature tokens.

At the beginning of combat on your turn, any opponent may sacrifice a creature. If a player does, tap Clackbridge Troll, you gain 3 life, and you draw a card.

Clackbridge Troll - love this guy

Hmm. I've always had a different experience with Clackbridge Troll, maybe because I play so much darn groupslug/Jund. I love the troll, either he is card draw & lifegain, or 8 trample is no joke if you are putting pressure on the right player... You also can choose whatever player has no blockers for the goats if you feel the need to stack the odds in your favor for likelihood for card draw (if that is what you want).

I always feel like deathtrampletouch is awesome... but I usually only focus on having that on a commander that already has 1/2 of that: Grismold, the Dreadsower is a sweet commander that already comes with the trample piece.

I personally agree with some of the cut-recommendations though... but I also don't want to tell you to cut all the responsive/fort, if you want to make her responsive, like a spiky pillowfort, you can, you just have to playtest it a ton because that is a really tricky playstyle to master while staying relevant in games

What I will say about Sunder Shaman is that if you are running with "combat matters" Thantis & most of your wincon are going to be through combat damage, then it is a good idea to have a high critical mass of artifact or enchantment removal, since there are several aggressively costed permanents of that type that take combat out of the game completely.

For cuts, I agree on taking out signets & focusing more on ramp, maybe removing Crown of Doom (Fiendish Duo) would have a lot more impact, maybe pull some of the "hunted" cycle. I think, remove some of the voltron pieces if you are going to keep the combat-discouraging pieces.

Even in my "less combat-focused" Thantis the "courts" see some good play: Court of Bounty, just monarch in general will often accomplish the type of slap-fight that you are looking for, often moreso than the more obvious force-combat stuff.

I've always been fascinated by Thantis as a deck, nice to see something even if it's not the Stax build I'd inevitably run (with considerable glee I might add), this seems considerably more fun to play against. I'm curious how your deck ends up working when you get it down to 100, I struggled mightily with a deck once but ended up pretty happy with the result.

For stuff you could pull, Sunder Shaman seems visibly awful, with numerous better and much easier to cast solutions existing. I have never, ever had Clackbridge Troll work out even half-decent for me, maybe you'll be luckier? I'm not sure how many redundant copies you need of the 'everyone has to attack' effect, other than Goad sources which protect you, unless you actually have a big body to block with you might not want people swinging at you, so that might let you cut Goblin Spymaster? You might cut Grand Melee for not being on a body, and Thantis doesn't want to block someone else's Deathtouch creature. I think I understand your plan to use Fogs to force people to swing and grow Thantis, then a Fog renders their attack otherwise moot, have you tested this concept out much? I usually find Fogs to be bad cards unless my deck can derive enormous advantage from 1 extra turn, and that simultaneously stopping one attacker will be enough. Anyways, I worry you won't have enough actual cards that matter with so many fogs, obviously if you've tested this out before and it works well then ignore this! I really love setting up Deathtouch and Trample on a big body, but I can never decide on a good ratio. Deathtouch without Trample is awful on a big creature, but Trample without Deathtouch is still pretty useful, so I tend to run one or two Deathtouch sources like Ohran Frostfang to have the option of 1-shotting someone while not having too many when I'm stuck with a big Deathtouch creature, a frustrating situation in my experience. When I have a deck with Green in it, and I'm less than 4 colours, there is a good chance I'll be running relatively few ramp artifacts, Green just does a better job, why play a Signet with Green in it when you could dig out your preferred land for the same mana, possibly a dual? Artifacts are magnets for removal in some metas, and if you don't run any/many, it opens you up to running more hate against such cards, if you later think you might want to (after playing it). I get that you're giving people tokens, but is Briar Patch actually relevant enough to run? Same with Revenge of Ravens or Hissing Miasma, not sure you want to deter people from swinging against you, but I might be misunderstanding your deck's game plan here. What exactly does your deck intend to do with the mana you generate from untapping your lands via Wilderness Reclamation, I guess Fogs?

As for some general advice, I wouldn't cut any lands beyond 33 with a 6 mana Commander, it's probably the lower end of what you'd want to risk. I would keep an eye on your land count when playtesting, if getting to 8 mana by the time you inevitably need to recast Thantis isn't consistent, you might want to sneak in some MDFC lands, but at this point I'd build the deck first and see what it can do at this land count.

Very much hate to suggest a card, but since I suggested pulling some Fogs, maybe you could replace several fogs with a Dawnstrider to make space in the deck?

Good luck with your building!

Chain Devil - really anything causing players to sacrifice nontokens seems to pan out well.

Creative Technique - always demonstrate, it is crazy good particularly in Timmie decks.

Mob Rule - causes so many 1-sided blowouts

Prosperous Partnership - boros ramp that gives you a combatants at the solid 3 mana value

Clackbridge Troll

Descent into Avernus - groupslug done well. This can just change the entire outlook of a game.

Clackbridge Troll give a opponent token they can sac for you to draw cards. Also a reasonable beater

This deck looks like it runs really well if your opponents have creatures... but what if they don't? Maybe think about adding in some cards that give your opponents creatures for you to kill. Cards like Forbidden Orchard, Clackbridge Troll and Genesis Chamber just to name a few. With cards like these, you'll almost never run out of targets for your removal!
