Glowstone Recluse Discussion

Koplarski on Toski, God of Nuts

Toski is a blast to play! Some cards that I have in my personal Toski deck that work really well are Champion of Lambholt , Ohran Frostfang , and Cultivator of Blades .

Additionally, Toski makes a great creature to mutate! I run all of the mono-green mutate creatures:

Auspicious Starrix

Gemrazer

Glowstone Recluse

Migratory Greathorn

Sawtusk Demolisher

With the amount of tokens you're making it might be worth looking at Doubling Season and Parallel Lives or other token doublers.

For lands, a Maze of Ith and Rogue's Passage can be very useful. If you add Maze of Ith, consider getting an Argothian Elder as well, since during combat you can create infinite Squirrel tokens using Squirrel Nest on a land and then the Elder to untap both the Maze and the Squirrel Nest land.

I'd drop 1x Gemrazer (Sideboard it) and add 1x Auspicious Starrix .

And maybe figure out a way to add in 4x Glowstone Recluse and 2x Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Spider for reach Predator to double Viv's loyalty counters and add +4+4 to the spider every time it mutates.

No way to give Wildwood Scourge ?

No Glowstone Recluse or The Ozolith nor Pridemalkin ?

Maybe one less Gemrazer since you have two you can repeatedly use. There can't be that many artifacts and enchantments.

I have other suggestions but those are the top ones that come to mind... Oh and Sparring Regimen could be great too.

Alright. Allow me to break this down.

Due to my inexperience with Mutate shenanigans, I shall focus more upon the ards I find generally lacking.

Now, as often as I read the terms of service, a lot of text does not necessarily mean a lot of synergy. The commander format espouses synergistic decks as opposed to ones fraught with individual card power. I thusly advocate for this card's removal.

Unless you are initiating combos with Brash Taunter, 'tis not a very good card. In a regular circumstance, it is around five damage for eight mana, which it severally lacking. The indestructibility is nice, but the majority of the format's removal is in the form of exile or bounce. I would kill it.

Some of these cards were designed for Ikoria limited, but not for outside of that format. What I would recommend excluding are Everquill Phoenix, Glowstone Recluse, Pouncing Shoreshark, and Dreamtail Heron. They are okay but below average.

Lastly, Blackblade Reforged is a strong card, but I would focus more on the value part of your plan as averse to the big creature plan. Illuna's mutate trigger accelerates your board state, thus making a single large idiot makes the plan susceptible to a single kill spell.

I have tried Soothsaying myself, yet had found the card to be far too much mana to be effective. There is not much to say. It cannot put cards to the bottom, nor can it permit much filtering with little mana spent.

Everquill Phoenix is a fine card, but I would rather have an additional engine piece as averse to a 4/4 flyer.

That shall be all from me, but I may offer additional insights as other edits are made to this list.

Farewell, and may all of fortune have you.

Why are Essence Symbiote and Pollywog Symbiote not here? They are basically staples of a mutate deck. I would also add Invisible Stalker, Glowstone Recluse, and Snapdax, Apex of the Hunt.

Are the Light of Hope present for their enchantment breaking mode too ? If not, maybe Feat of Resistance* or Swallow Whole are more interesting: they still give a +1/+1 counter while eliminating an opponent's creature and/or protecting one of yours.

I see that you didn't include Tempered Veteran, so I don't think you'll be interested into Hornbash Mentor (who's useful thanks to the Pridemalkin). (About that cat, it might make Ram Through a more appealing anti-creature.) Furthermore, to stay in Ikoria, you have two counter-generating mutations: Glowstone Recluse and Vulpikeet. They can both help against flying creatures (giving respectively Reach and Flying) but are probably too costly for two or one counter only, maybe they would be O.K. as side cards unless the escape spider is enough?

A few Idyllic Granges could have been nice if you were playing more plains...

Sorry for the disturbance !

*Heroic Intervention was my prefered choice of protection but it doesn't contribute to the theme.
