Lord of Extinction

Creature — Elemental

Lord of Extinction's power and toughness are each equal to the number of cards in all graveyards.

Dangerwillrobinson79 hey hey glad to hear you are taking the ooze for a spin!

Yes The Tarrasque must fight a creature the defending player controls. It is not a "may" ability. Usually this is a bonus removal spell. This only is a downside if they somehow have a bigger creature than a 21/21 or one with deathtouch. In that case, attack another player until removal gets rid of the threat or try to get another creature in the graveyard other than The Tarrasque like Gaea's Revenge, Spirit of the Night, or the brand new Tyrranax Rex. Those pair best with Death's Shadow, Impervious Greatwurm, or Lord of Extinction after a board wipe.

I appreciate the suggestions! I do currently have one, Skull Prophet.

My thought process behind this deck is to mill your own library and play out of the graveyard. A lot of the cards don't ever get to make it into your hand, so it wouldn't make a ton of sense to put things in here that could not be gotten back. That's why there are only 5 non-creature non-land things.

That being said there are tons of creature based mana dorks out there, Arbor Elf, Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, and even my all time favorite Incubation Druid. However I don't think that they would help further my goal of getting stuff in and out of the graveyard, or comboing with that. They could just as easily be replaced with a land, which would combo with other stuff in the deck, Centaur Vinecrasher, Eccentric Farmer, Turntimber Sower so I would be hesitant to cut more lands than I need to.

Lord of Extinction is a great card but Lhurgoyf is great too and a fifth of the price too. They both have their pros and cons, Lord of Extinction has a higher CMC and one more colors. Lhurgoyf toughness is equal to 1+ the number of cards, if my opponent exiles all graveyards that leaves him on the battlefield. If I decide to cut anything, it would be Creeping Dread and I would replace it with Lord of Extinction.

I look forward to hearing more of your suggestions!

I am tinkering around with an Old Rutstein deck but I am unsure about the timing of specific cards for the deck. Ex: I want to Cast Noxious Revival targeting Lord of Extinction to ensure I draw it at my draw step. Old Rutstein would mill this into my graveyard with his upkeep trigger. Am I able to Cast Noxious Revival AFTER Old Rutstein's triggered ability to set up my next draw with Lord of Extinction?

Further reprints of Damnation and Bitterblossom shall help to keep those cards affordable, which is nice, and the fact that three of the Shadowmoor/Eventide lieges have been spoiled, thus far, has me hopeful that the entire cycle shall be reprinted, especially since both allied-colored and enemy-colored lieges have been revealed, thus far.

I know that I should not complain about all the awesome reprints in this set, but the fact that Dockside Extortionist was upgraded to a mythic rare means that its price shall likely decrease by only a small amount, and the fact that Lord of Extinction was left as a mythic rare, and not downgraded to a regular rare, is annoying, because I do not feel that it is worth occupying a mythic rare slot in this set.

Hi Rahrune, I am actually building this deck! I didn't already ordered all the cards I need but here is how I made it;

I have a bunch of hexproof creatures, like Slippery Bogle, on which I try to put as much auras as I can. I have cards like Kor Spiritdancer and Season of Growth to draw a lot of cards and refill my hand. I added 4 Path to Exile to my sideboard, just in case other players have too big creatures like Lord of Extinction.

For the auras, I am relying on these;

I understand your choice on Sigarda, Host of Herons to prevent your creatures to be sacrificed but I prefer being more aggressive. I don't know if you are really focused on auras but maybe you should try voltron strategy. If you have any tips for me I will appreciate it.

I hope this will help you Rahrune!

It depends on what the specific card is and how the ability setting its power works. For example:

  • Lord of Extinction constantly updates its P/T wherever it is. If it's in the graveyard, the value of * will be the current number of cards in all graveyards (including itself)
  • Sewer Nemesis depends on a player chosen as it enters the battlefield. If it's in the graveyard, that "chosen player" will be undefined and the value of * will default to zero
