If Progenitus would be put into a graveyard from anywhere, reveal Progenitus and shuffle it into its owner's library instead.

Progenitus Discussion

griffstick on Favorite color or color combination?

Imp's Mischief is good but you should see the faces and the reactions you'll get with Withering Boon . I once countered Progenitus with Withering Boon and the whole lgs was standing and looking over to see what the commotion was. Also don't underestimate the power of Withering Boon . If you are playing mono black this is better than most removal spells as it can stop very important etb effects or reaction effects or spells.

legendofa I love Progenitus ! I've always wanted to build something around them. Sedris is really cool too - I can't say I've ever seen a build like that. Good choice!

Alara. It's the set where I really started to get invested in the game, and it's got a good selection of flavor and power. I'd probably build Rafiq of the Many , Sedris, the Traitor King , Kresh the Bloodbraided , or my first mythic rare, Progenitus .

kpres- I think that fits the flavor at /least/ as well as Progenitus. I don’t have any GY work to retrieve the babe, though, so I feel like it would end up being a one-time-use.

If you're worried about not enough devotion for your gods to be creatures, I'd definitely take a commander with 5 actual color pips in its casting cost over a Golos or Kenrith. Child of Alara will help your devotion a lot more, and it's a deterrent to the other players, not wanting their stuff to blow up, giving a lot more time to execute your slower game plan.

Just in case you'd need some more sillier options to consider: Karona, False God is a silly card, but it does have God in the name, making it some sort of flavor win, or ironic flavor fail, depending how you look at it. Just make sure the other players won't beat you down with it, it will hit someone for 8 commander damage every player's turn on an empty board. Indestructible God blockers help though, beware tribal decks. Progenitus is some sort of hydra-god that will seriously contribute some devotion if you'd actually could get it into play.

CheapBastard on RAMos THE GATE

Let's see if I can help ya out here since you need to protect Ramos ASAP. Lightning Greaves and Asceticism are really nice but imma try to keep it budget. Whispersilk Cloak is nice since you can hit em with that unblockable but I think Glaring Spotlight is extremely underrated. Swiftfoot Boots are really good too. If you want to go crazy with Ramos you can always add in Helm of the Host too for extra fun! Progenitus is one of my favorites too. I see you're going with walls so Wall of Kelp and Intruder Alarm goes infinite with Axebane Guardian so that's something to keep in mind too. Assault Formation is your backup just in case and when your walls start attacking, Tower Defense is a really cheeky play. Hopefully this helps a little

Thanks for commenting DemMeowsephs!

I did go for a budget manabase because my priority is on the big spells rather than the lands and such. But I will definitely keep this in mind! I need to add Noble Hierarch for sure.

Unfortunately I cannot add Hunter's Insight and Berserk and the like because Progenitus has protection from EVERYTHING! So I cannot target them or equip them with Civic Saber or enchant them unfortunately!

I will keep working on this deck and keep coming back to your comment, however. Thanks again, as I really do appreciate the feedback!

Omniscience_is_life on The MOST expensive deck

I don't think Progenitus is the most expensive creature... try a Juzam Djinn instead maybe. Similar with Door to Nothingness, maybe a Candelabra of Tawnos? Love the idea of the deck!
