Creature — Lhurgoyf

Lhurgoyf's power is equal to the number of creature cards in all graveyards and its toughness is equal to that number plus 1.

I cracked an etched foil Hans and was thinking of doing the same. My only addition is for the flavour you need to add Lhurgoyf

TheGiftedBard on Picking the right precon

10 months ago


I’m fairly new to the game and new to edh, my apologizes if I’m not in the right section.

I’m currently looking at the precons and there’s a few I’d like to try but right now I think that getting just one is probably smarter in case I end up not liking the format.

In all the precon I looked at, these are the one that my lgs still have. I’m gonna list them one by one with a quick reason why I’m interested by them.

Commander - Devour for Power - The Mimeoplasm: I do like the idea of dumping stuff in my graveyard to basically make my commander into whatever I need for a particular situation, I recently bought a small collection with a Sheoldred, Whispering One, Mortivore, Golgari Grave-Troll, Lhurgoyf and Hermit Druid.

Commander - Political Puppet - Zedruu the Greathearted: The idea of casting curses on my opponents and giving them creatures to screw them over seems terribly funny and diabolical. Switching my Steel Golem for Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre would be a win for me even if I end up losing the game.

Commander 2015 - Call the Spirits - Daxos the Returned: Building an enchantment deck seemed fun and I also have cards like Sorin Markov with his -3 and cards line Debt to the Deathless or Exsanguinate in my collection for alternative way of winning the game.

Commander 2015 - Seize Control - Mizzix of the Izmagnus: It’s probably not the main goal of the deck but casting instant and sorcery with Talrand, Sky Summoner or Murmuring Mystic and having Crackling Drake on the board to swoop in with a bunch of flying drakes and birds on the board made me laugh.

Commander 2015 - Swell the Host - Ezuri, Claw of Progress: Ezuri just looked so badass and flooding the bord with a bunch of 2 and 1 power creatures and adding stuff like Craterhoof Behemoth and Beastmaster Ascension or using Triumph of the Hordes or even buffing them up with Ezuri + some proliferate triggers looked like sometimes that could be very scary for the table.

Sorry for the long post but There’s so many choices that I got lost and confused on what could be better a first deck.

Thanks for the help.

I would recommend putting in the Lhurgoyf just for flavor

Thanks xram666,

Those were great suggestions...

The only reason I went with Overwhelm over Overrun is that I generally have a bunch of snakes that entering on my turn, so they have summoning sickness. But I like the idea of Trample better.

Wheel and Deal I originally discounted because I don't get to draw a full hand, but have noticed that really doesn't matter to me so much with this deck. Is now on my list to re-add.

Prosperity is also on the possible list now. I like the idea of others paying for the Minds Aglow, but would be nice to have an extra.

Sudden Impact was on its way out of the deck. Already moved it from active to maybe. The couple times I got it I could always find something better to spend 4 mana on. But the idea of having a 1 version is kinda nice.

Folio of Fancies is probably a no, only because it ends up being a mana sink, and I almost always have a fist full of cards.

Thanks again for the suggestions, I think at least 2 of them are going to make it in. Probably tossing Lhurgoyf and Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, as too expensive for what they do.

Hello Pikobyte. Thanks for the view,

My group generally plays 3-4 player games. I have found that Teferi's Puzzle Box was phenomenal in the games I have played. It generates snakes every round.

Although I only have a few cards that so a classic wheel, there are a lot of cards that make players draw. Temple Bell, Howling Mine, Dictate of Kruphix, Fevered Visions, Rites of Flourishing, Standstill, Arcane Denial, Dream Fracture, Minds Aglow, Molten Psyche, Windfall, Vision Skeins, Words of Wisdom, Jace's Archivist, Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist. Most of these end up generating snakes on other players turns, so that on my turn they do not have sickness.

I do have one Wheel of Fortune, but its currently in another deck. May end up adding a proxy into this one and swapping it back and forth. I do also want to get a Windfall. Those two will definately find a place in this deck, probably replacing Lhurgoyf and Frantic Search

Are there any in particular you would suggest?

Ooof, Zaxara should've been Temur. That is a shame.

Also, not really a fan of new free spells. There is too small a barrier to casting them.

I am enjoying that this set has introduced two new Lhurgoyfs. By they way, Fiend Artisan is puuuuushed.

Heh, after reading the description about Ikoria I feel like someone just watched Avatar and simulataneously finished play StarCraft HotS and decided to make a set about it.

Here are some quick thoughts on spoilers so far:

Whaaaaaaat? Nethroi is absolutely busted as a Commander. Has WotC not yet learned that 0 is a number? Also, how does this work with creatures variable P/T? I think they still have a P/T regardless of which zone they are in, but if it's zero....then here comes Lhurgoyf tribal!

As far as the Lutri ban goes, it is correct. It's criteria is automatically met by having a commander deck. You start the game with an extra card in hand which is a solid advantage. There is literally no reason not to run the card in any deck that has the proper colors. It's ability is quite strong.

The Kaiju alternate arts are absolutely fantastic, but the normal alternate arts don't really fit the set's themes. I would've liked to see the cave painting style on the mythos cards used instead.

Speaking of which, the mythos cycle is looking quite strong.

I am glad to see cycling come back and mutate looks like a pretty fun mechanic. I also like the idea of keyword counters. It is very flavorful to the set and allows even bad creatures to suddenly become quite menacing.

Everquill Phoenix is a miss in that it would've been the perfect Phoenix tribal commander (good card otherwise).

Anyone else notice that they slipped Fertilid into the set? I wonder if we will see a saproling theme.

Of the 5 precon-flagship commanders, only Kalamax and Gavi look interesting too me (2 out of 5 isn't bad) which probably means that I'll end up building a deck around one of the other 3 :p.

seshiro_of_the_orochi if partners are really coming back, that is fantastic! Also, the cats are mostly within the Mardu color pie this time (at least according to the article describing the plane).
