Oath of Druids


At the beginning of each player's upkeep, that player chooses target player who controls more creatures than he or she does and is his or her opponent. The first player may reveal cards from the top of his or her library until he or she reveals a creature card. If he or she does, that player puts that card onto the battlefield and all other cards revealed this way into his or her graveyard.

Rise of the Witch-king may end up being a good one for you... Oath of Druids is more of a wolf in sheep's clothing than true group-hug (for me). I usually use it to dump on controlly spell-slingers trying to keep creature-counts low, while also looking like a "huggy", decent guy. Also, in it starts really filling out graveyards for me to do stuff with if they opt to activate it... If they don't opt to activate it, then they can have fun falling behind the more stompy decks at the table :) ...

Thank you SufferFromEDHD, Profet93, and Gleeock for your feedback! After reworking the deck I have added a few of your suggestions and am considering the others! Oath of Druids seems particularly fun if I ever want to take the deck in a "goup hug" direction.

Also, CptnHndsm = Captain Handsome, but I love where your head is at! ;) check out my Demon Tribal list for some of that sweet hedonism! :P

Fun take on enchantress+recursion. I also like the limited GY superiority built into the commander. You ever consider Oath of Druids. Just because of how zany it is... & your ability to manipulate the trigger with snake-gifting?

DrukenReaps that is a playstyle (which I love) that only certain people win with, takes a very different look at tempo & life totals as a resource. Very midrangy (which I also love). It is really fun to force players to make different decisions than they normally would because you have been chiseling at life totals on a non-lifegain control deck for example.

If you build it the non-cEDH/combo way Atla Palani, Nest Tender is chaotic in a fun way. Atla with Tobasco Sauce plays with high variance. Ruric Thar, the Unbowed is one of my favorite egg-hatches, which probably fits the bill for this topic.

Polymorphing probably fits this bill too, you can build however much variance you want then Reality Scramble tokens.

Fun variance cards: Oath of Druids is a staple for me, you can make the game very lopsided against a miserly opponent with this. Creative Technique is powerful but has variance, Protection Racket is amazing in a fun Timmy deck that doesn't care that much if you lose a card here and there. None of those really stall things, they just keep the foot on the gas. I know there are more that I will think up.

Gleeock on What is Gruul to you?

Deathstrike would be fine & all, but it wouldn't really broaden any horizons for the color pair. To be thoroughly Gruul it would probably need some cool ability for if you connect with combat dmg... Maybe something that Oath of Druids'd the entire table, or made everyone sac an artifact or enchantment & get a centaur in its' place :)

Gleeock on What is Gruul to you?

Currently Gruul is thought of only by its' brutish Ravnica origin & there is alot of missed opportunity there, as about all the other color pairings have branched out since Strixhaven. I think of Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient currently as representative of Gruul.

Some good ideas for future direction of Gruul.

1) I would love to see some bomb redirect effects in Gruul... Ward "copy & retarget a spell"? Maybe a Grip of Chaos commander that spawned redirect targets for the table? Maybe replacing instances of creature destruction, sac, exile into artifact & enchantment somehow?

2) Gruul could fill a unique space of group-gifting & hug-into-slug for anti control decks. Playing with fire by making the table difficult to control. Think of the unique way that Oath of Druids floods the table with creatures until spellslingers are left pulling their hair, maybe add a little incentive to slap players that can't hang. So now you are combined punishing artifact/enchantment heavy decks, while gifting their opponents. Also, Heartwood Storyteller does this in an unusual way, making the table benefit from playing your game while also causing an out-of-control boardstate. I have great love for Kibo, Uktabi Prince in this sortof hug-into-slug design space.

3) Seems like alot of opportunity to "control" a game direction by making it more difficult for any one player to actually control things, while promoting a "come at me bro" attitude with permanents. I've done this type of play pattern before, there just isn't a ton of feasible support for it yet & it seems like would be the right home for it.

Gleeock on top cards of each color

Boy, I don't play too much mono-color. Maybe:

- Akroma's Will & Tragic Arrogance

- pass/ Mass Polymorph & Bident of Thassa

- Protection Racket & Bolas's Citadel

- Descent into Avernus & Fiendish Duo

- Oath of Druids & Selvala's Stampede

Probably could be convinced of some other things though

I think there is some contention whether Yggy is a yew or an ash. If you want to take the depictions with "traditional leaves" then you would say it is an ash. But, some depictions certainly look like a yew.

My wedding tree is a little witch-hazel that we shaped indoors for a year & planted, what a cool, tough little tree.

Love Oath of Druids - what a party & a great anti-spellslinger to boot. Heartwood Storyteller is great fun
