Etali, Primal Storm occurrence in decks from the last year

Etali, Primal Storm Discussion

MrFuzzykenz on Punch First. Ask Questions While Punching.

Thanks for checking out my deck Spell_Slam and Gattison!

I think Harmonize might be too slow for this deck and I have plenty of draw cards that will give me more draw power for less mana, such as Life's Legacy. I'm not sure if Descendants' Path works with my EDH deck?

I took Garruk, Primal Hunter out and traded it for Greater Good hoping I'll get more value out of it.

Etali, Primal Storm looks like a fun card to play with, I'm back and forth with this card but it is free value.

I didn't know Ohran Frostfang was a card that is a most add for this deck thanks for the suggestions!

I see you took out Garruk, Primal Hunter but you needed card draw. Seems like it would work very well in your deck.

Ohran Frostfang is also a pretty good way to draw cards.

There's also Garruk's Packleader available to you.

Etali, Primal Storm could give you more options than you have available in your deck, plus it's a fatty you can ramp into.

There are other cuts to consider as well, but I feel these are the more noteworthy ones....

Ashaya, Soul of the Wild - No direct synergy with Xenagos, you want a beater with evasion or protection

Beast Whisperer - Better in decks that are lower to the ground that can better use it's ability

Brash Taunter - "No synergy with Xenagos"

God-Eternal Rhonas - Better in decks that go wide, this gets easily chump blocked. You rarely have more than 1 creature out at a time

Klothys, God of Destiny - "No synergy with Xenagos"

Leyline Tyrant - Better in red decks, while not recomending it, glorybringer would be better IMO as it acts as removal as well

Phylath, World Sculptor - No synergy with....

Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger - Not enough ramp to hard cast, no cheating effects (which wont even give you a cast trigger)

Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre - See above

Shadowspear - Meta call? Better to have creatures with trample or more ramp and card draw in this slow

Triumph of the Hordes - Hit or miss. Playing a beater, hoping it survives, casting this next turn and hoping they dont have removal. Ignoring the feelbad of infect

Berserkers' Onslaught - Winmore

Vernal Bloom - Symmetrical ramp which you can't even take full advantage of

Nissa, Who Shakes the World - This is ok, I like the vigilance and getting essentially a 6/6. Rather have something more impactful.

Atarka, World Render - Beater with evasion

Balefire Dragon - Beater with evasion that also destroys decks that go wide

Carnage Tyrant - Beater with protection, evasion and anti-blue. Nice to use a mass draw spell knowing they can't remove the creature in response

Etali, Primal Storm - Not needed, but fun! Lots of value, doesn't require combat damage

Farhaven Elf - Ramp for T4 Xenagos

Fierce Empath - Tutor

Inferno Titan - Removal

Kogla, the Titan Ape - Removal

Malignus - GG target player

Savage Ventmaw - Beater with evasion and helps build tempo

Scourge of the Throne - Destroy people's lifetotal

Shaman of Forgotten Ways - Ramp and potential wincon

Siege Behemoth - Beater with evasion

Somberwald Sage - Ramp

Springbloom Druid - Ramp for T4 Xenagos

Yavimaya Hollow - Protection

Turntimber, Serpentine Wood - Land when you need it, beater when you don't

Dread Statuary - Manland to be used as potential beater or for draw spell

Rishkar's Expertise - Draw + Tempo. Powerful!

Life's Legacy - Draw

Momentous Fall - Similar to above, to be used in response to removal

Berserk - Use on selvala, malignus or even an opposing creature attacking one of your opponents!

Sylvan Library - Nice but not needed

Lanzo493 on Budget Reanimation Targets

When it comes to reanimation targets, you want creatures that function identically to spells. Removal spells, draw spells, etc. That way you can go all-in on the reanimation strategy while also pulling off interaction at the same time. With that in mind...

Solemn Simulacrum for ramp and draw

Duplicant/Meteor Golem for removal

Etali, Primal Storm because he's just straight value

Flayer of the Hatebound can deal lots of damage in a reanimator style deck

Worldgorger Dragon goes infinite with Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead, and Necromancy very easily. Then you have infinite mana to do stuff with. It's worth the price tag and is a wincon in reanimator cEDH decks.

Tendershoot Dryad/Avenger of Zendikar can take over boards. They aren't all that cheap, though.

Phylath, World Sculptor can make tons of tokens and is more budget friendly

Vilis, Broker of Blood is surprisingly budget, and takes over any game

Gray Merchant of Asphodel is designed to be reanimated as many times as possible

Sepulchral Primordial/Diluvian Primordial are like spells on big sticks

Any of the eldrazi that shadow63 mentioned

I'm mostly familiar with mono-red reanimator because of my commander Feldon of the Third Path. He would work great in a reanimator deck, too. Especially one with lots of creature-based shenanigans. Also, Chainer, Nightmare Adept is great at reanimating. He also gives Korvold haste and any creature you have in hand (provided you discard it and cast it from the yard).

CaptCreek on Xenagos: Party in a Can

Curious how you feel about Hydra Omnivore and Etali, Primal Storm.

HO has been a little underwhelming for me lately, mostly not having trample being the big culprit. Not sure if I just haven't been playing with it enough, but it still seems at least decent. I might end up swapping it out for something else soon.

Etali is pretty good value, and is the best in a deck that can give it haste and let it attack right away. At the same time, though, not having trample sucks and it's really dependent on what everyone else has so the variance is high.

Siege Behemoth has also been a pretty sweet finisher style card for me, especially in tandem with Ilharg, the Raze-Boar or other creatures out on the battlefield.

A card named Primal Storm isn't in your decklist, nor exists, unless you mean Etali, Primal Storm. Do you mean Genesis Storm

I built a big-mana artifacts deck with Olivia Voldaren at the helm.

We've all run into situations where you have oodles of mana rocks and no where to dump the mana into. Maybe your hand got discarded or you're just running out of answers. Olivia Voldaren is pretty scary once you have 7 mana available to steal any creature at instant speed. Yes, you do have to give them back if she dies, but she's still a good outlet and control piece.

She can burn away creatures and buff herself for commander damage wins. Basilisk Collar and Quietus Spike get a lot scarier in her hands.

I ultimately took her apart to build something more silly with Etali, Primal Storm; but had a blast while she was at the table.
