Footsteps of the Goryo Discussion

Nox.LD on 5 color hulk

2 weeks ago

Footsteps of the Goryo acts as reanimation and a sac outlet all in one for Protean Hulk .

Ataraxey Scry can help with reanimator, as it's a soft combo strategy. If you don't have the cards for reanimation on the top of the deck, shift them to the bottom. It's light, but you want to ensure your draws help the process out.

If you want Mob Rule , you might want to sub in some Narset's Reversal and other copy cards and even strive to reach Insurrection , but I've avoided that as taking away everything my opponent built could lead to them not wanting to play against the deck, which I don't want.

I'd probably swap out Day's Undoing for Final Fortune or Last Chance if they reprinted and Shallow Grave for Footsteps of the Goryo . There's a lot of strictly better cards in that sideboard but with old borders. I'd love to see them reprinted.

MagicMarc on Sundial on a Stick

Hello, I like your deck. I have a couple suggestions that synergize with the sundial and Obeka. First; Footsteps of the Goryo in case you need more reanimation effects. Secondly, since you mentioned "on a stick" which in magic can refer to Isochron Scepter, i thought you might be interested in this nice little combination of cards: Isochron Scepter + Goryo's Vengeance when played in your deck. It only works with legendary creatures but between the sundial and your commander you can get serious mileage out of it as a permanent re-animation engine.

SteelSentry on Need a direction for Obeka, …

6 months ago

I love this commander's ability, and have wanted to build a Grixis deck, but I'm not quite sure what direction to go in. The direction I'm considering is a self/mill reanimation strategy with effects like Footsteps of the Goryo and creatures with Unearth and the new Encore abilities. Is anyone else building Obeka, Brute Chronologist, and what strategy have you been considering?

Looks like a standard casual build. I'll reccomend running Nature's Claim, Assassin's Trophy, Blood Artist, Lesser Masticore,Footsteps of the Goryo, Protean Hulk, Apprentice Necromancer, Necromancy, Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed - though a few of these I'll only suggest running them if you're looking to up the power like hulk and mikaeus the unhallowed

zapyourtumor on Essence of the Wild Hunt

One problem with Essence of the Wild is that it reads "creatures you control enter the battlefield as a copy" which means that you want it on the field before you do all the token shenanigans. Because of this, I think the deck would perform better if you either tried to reanimate Essence of the Wild or ramp up into it as fast as possible.

Reanimation would be difficult to build around, though, but you could do stuff like Footsteps of the Goryo + Elvish Mystic for a permanent copy of essence on turn 4 and then all your tokens after that are copies of it.

Other than that, have you considered adding some interaction? Path to Exile for example

TriusMalarky on Gifts Tron?

1 year ago

I want to brew a budget Modern deck, and I was wondering -- could Gifts Ungiven work in a tron build? Trash for Treasure would help a ton there, and Sundering Titan has solid synergies with Trash.

For example, what if you cast Gifts Ungiven and went to grab



You could really watch them squirm. You have options. Maybe you grab the one tron land you don't have and Scrying as well as a couple bombs. Let them decide what you get -- except Footsteps and Trash make it so that having creatures in your yard is bad for them, and of course they don't want to give you the actual creatures, and you can probably run a card or two to bring Tron Lands back from your grave.

What say you? Course, Wurmcoil Engine is the absolute best here(death trigger for Footsteps and if you want to sac it to Trash), but it's a bit pricey. So, could it work?
