Gyruda, Doom of Depths

Legendary Creature — Demon Kraken

Companion — Your starting deck must contain only cards with even converted mana costs. (You may reveal this card from outside the game before you start and declare it as your companion. If you do, your deck must follow the companion's restrictions. You may pay to put this companion from your sideboard to your hand at any time you could cast a sorcery. This action can't be interacted with or countered. You may only choose one companion for your deck before the start of each round.)

When Gyruda enters the battlefield, each player puts the top four cards of their library into their graveyard. Put a creature card with an even converted mana cost from among those cards onto the battlefield under your control.

Gyruda, Doom of Depths Discussion

The first thing that jumps out at me is the amount of 5 cmc in your deck. To smoothen out your curve take a few out and put in some 4 drops, and maybe a 6 drop, Gyruda, Doom of Depths or The Haunt of Hightower for starts can be bombs. You could put some wheels in as anything accelerating your opponent’s draw (to discard) will accelerate your gameplan.

Good luck, it is hard to win with Mill out here, but not as hard as it used to be.

I think WotC just really like making Demons shirtless.

And thus far they have gotten away with saying that Angels are perfect beings and therefore can have stereotypically fantasized bodies--a trait that usually leads to they character being female, unfortunately.

But to be fair, it's quite hard to tell what gender Demons like Gyruda, Doom of Depths are.

Sorry about the historic suggestions earlier, I got a bit confused.

Anyway, more on topic, you certainly should do your best to put cards in your graveyard fast to get the most out of Offspring's Revenge . Feels really bad to have it in play and nothing to bring back. The suggestions you got from usurphling make a lot of sense and I would like to reiterate that cards like Gyruda, Doom of Depths and Rankle, Master of Pranks would be right at home here and would work both as payoffs and enablers.

Considering today's meta, I feel like it could be a good idea to run more than 60 cards for you since you'll be going through your deck quickly and there's a lot of rogues and mill deck around. You only run 3 Offspring's Revenge as it is, so you could easily add another 1, a few more big hitters, 4 Cathartic Reunion (and some lands, obviously) and I'm sure the whole thing would work better in general while not being too prone to decking out.

Btw, Liliana, Waker of the Dead is a cute addition but I don't think I would go as high as 3 copies of her. You don't focus on getting your opponent empty handed, and discarding cards without drawing any isn't that great for you either. I don't think you'll have a hand full enough to have something you actually want to discard turn after turn. Something that just mills you could work better without destroying your hand. Her Ultimate and -2 also fights over your graveyard with Offspring's Revenge .

Thanks for the suggestions Lanzo493. I don't have copies of them, but I have Thassa's Oracle & Leveler as potential future additions if I wanted to go on a more definite combo-win route. I think I had considered Gyruda, Doom of Depths at one point, and might have it on a separate Maybe-list page. I think I left it out of this version of the deck to keep the CMC curve looking nice.

Thassa's Oracle actually performs really well in my own Araumi deck. I've never won off the card, although that is an option, and it basically functions as a scry 19 when encored. Since you keep your favorite card out of the top 7 three times (assuming you only have 3 Oracles and Araumi out at the time for 7 devotion), you get to look 19 cards deep. Gyruda, Doom of Depths is great since it mills a ton while also reanimating a ton of cards at once for an immediate boardstate.

I would replace your Golgari Thug with Stinkweed Imp because Golgari Thug's ability is a must. It's harder to play around than Stinkweed Imp who can actually be a useful blocker.

I have an offspring's revenge deck on my own in Arena but I am glad to help you out since I love brewing this card.

You can go in two ways - Go Odds or Evens. Why did I say that? because you can abuse these companions to build around offspring's revenge - Obosh, the Preypiercer or Gyruda, Doom of Depths without them being your companion.

Also, you will need to have enablers in this deck. while we agree self mill is good in this deck, I like to control which cards do I actually dump early game for my payoffs from offspring's revenge later on. So I recommend cards like Cathartic Reunion , Thrill of Possibility and Fissure Wizard .

For payoffs if I go odds - you can go for Oathsworn Knight , Skyclave Apparition , obosh, Ox of Agonas (very good card draw and cheap escape cost), Drana, the Last Bloodchief and Terror of Mount Velus

If I go evens (and i recommend this due to more options, combos and your 1/1 tokens become bigger) - Immersturm Predator , Rankle, Master of Pranks (very very good in this deck), Harmonious Archon , gyruda (sell mill but it picks up more payoffs), Moraug, Fury of Akoum (if you combine it with drana, you can have multiple chain combat triggers with offspring's revenges)

...or if you can combine both. Its up to you how you can improve this deck. Hope it helps.

The deck has received some updates. Mastermind's Acquisition has been substituted for Burning-Rune Demon , because the demon can be found using Gyruda, Doom of Depths and can be blinked for repeated tutors. I have also improved the manabase.

Hi Friend, really nice deck, I love it!!

I see you're reanimating either with your companion or animate dead and dance of the dead, all 3 of them go pretty well with Kederekt Leviathan specially the auras, either of them works like a cheap boardwipe with the leviathan. I highly recommend you to test it. It also helps you bounce Gyruda, Doom of Depths

See you around :)
