Quartzwood Crasher Discussion

multimedia on Welcome to Gishathic Park

Hey, nice Scroll Rack Invention :)

Some budget cards to consider adding:

Sol Ring and Command Tower are some staple budget cards in Commander. At TCGPlayer you can find Sol for less than $3 and Tower for less than $1. Congregation at Dawn is a good budget creature tutor with Gishath. Cast it the same turn you want play Gishath or the turn before to tutor for and arrange the top of your library with any three Dinos to cheat onto the battlefield. Forerunner of the Empire is a Dino tutor (puts the Dino on top of your library) and a repeatable enrage enabler when a Dino you control ETB.

Quartzwood Crasher is one of the better budget Dinos since it can be a repeatable source of Dino tokens since many other Dinos have trample especially with Ghalta. Crasher combines well with Garruk's Uprising which can be a repeatable draw source and can give all creatures you control trample. Ripjaw Raptor has a powerful enrage ability to draw a card when it takes damage. Rhythm of the Wild makes all creatures you cast uncounterable and it gives nontoken creatures when they ETB the option of haste or make it bigger with a +1/+1 counter.

With Orcish Lumberjack sacing a Forest you control can make four mana since you can tap the Forest for mana before you sac it which can be a quick way to ramp into Gishath or other Dinos. Farseek is two drop land ramp that can search for a dual land such as Stomping Ground, Canopy Vista, Cinder Glade. At TCGPlayer can get Vista and Glade for less than $2 each.


Cards to consider cutting:

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, good start on a budget, several nice upgrades you've made.

Let me introduce you to Quartzwood Crasher and Garruk's Uprising; two powerful budget cards with Ghired that have excellent interaction. Crasher is good with Ghired because it can create huge Dino tokens to populate and these tokens along with Rhinos have trample. You don't even have to attack with Crasher to make a Dino token; any creatures who have trample who do combat damage to a player counts.

Uprising can do a lot for a three drop, but best of all it's a repeatable draw source whenever you create a Rhino. Any creature or token that's 4 or more power will trigger Uprising to draw. It also gives all creatures you control trample which has busted interaction with Crasher since then any creature you control who does combat damage to a player you create a Dino token.


The main area of improvement in the precon is ramp and lands. You've included several good land upgrades, but only 32 lands is not enough land especially because you want five mana to cast Ghired. My advice is go with 36 lands and include at least 12 ramp sources, more early game ramp sources. Cinder Glade is here twice.

Other budget ramp and lands to consider adding:


I see Eladamri's Call which is an excellent upgrade and this tells me that tutors are fine to play. Other budget tutors to consider adding:

Open the Armory can be a helpful tutor if you add some equipment and aura that can be repeatable protection for Ghired. Lightning Greaves and/or Swiftfoot Boots can give Ghired haste and protect him from opponent's targeted removal. Shield of the Oversoul can protect Ghired with indestructible and give him flying making it safer to attack with him.

I offer more advice about what cards to cut. Would you like more advice?

Good luck with your deck.

LOVE the list. As a fellow party animal, it's always awesome to see more Xenagos lists. The list looks super solid, though there are some little things that I think would be worth considering.

Despite being a removal magnet, The Great Henge is such a house in a deck like this. It's nice draw and "Ramp", depending on how early you can play it, and it also buffs up your creatures.

Sneak Attack is an absolute slam-dunk in a deck like this. Being able to sneak out 2-3 6+ drops onto the board to kill more than 1 player is such a good feeling (Imagine sneaking a Worldspine, Pathbreaker and whatever else, then pumping Ghalta off a Xenagos trigger and giving everything +30/+30 and Trample!).

Return of the Wildspeaker is another great draw effect, and it has the useful mode of pumping your creatures if you don't need the draw. Being an instant is super powerful too, and makes it a strictly better Soul's Majesty. It's also harder to get blown out by spot removal with Return because it checks the highest power of creatures, instead of targeting one creature, so you can still draw some cards if someone uses instant speed spot removal on one of your beaters.

Explosive Vegetation has become less attractive to me since the 4 mana slot is now home to so many better ramp cards, namely Migration Path. I'd rather have this since it has the added advantage of cycling away if you don't need the ramp at that moment.

This is absolutely personal preference, but 30 creatures is the bare minimum number of creatures I would be comfortable running in a deck like this. You have a good amount of tutors, so it's not as big of a deal here, but something to consider.

The new Radha, Heart of Keld might be the new Courser of Kruphix, if only because it doesn't make you reveal your top card to everyone. It's true that Courser is 1 color, but in a 2 color deck fixing shouldn't really be an issue. The fact that it can make itself into a big threat is also really neat.

Quartzwood Crasher could potentially be a replacement for Giant Adephage, since it's cheaper to cast and can make MASSIVE tokens since it checks each creature with trample. It will even make multiple tokens if you hit more than one player.

Skarrg, the Rage Pits is technically a worse KWR, but I like having as many ways to give trample as possible. I don't have any land tutors though, so you're probably fine without it.

I love gushing about Xenagod, but I'll reign it in for now. Most of these are very subjective (Except Sneak Attack...I reeeeeeeally love that card...) and overall the list looks badass!

(If you wanna peek at my list, here you go! Xenagos's Party Animals It's far from perfect, but I've been tweaking and tuning it for a while and I'm constantly testing new cards to see what works.)

Pathbreaker Ibex is super powerful with Xenagos. It's an Overwhelming Stampede on a goat stick.

Quartzwood Crasher is one I've recently put into my Xenagos deck, and I like how easily gigantic the tokens get.

Zendikar Resurgent would be really strong in your deck because it gives you card draw and the mana to cast those cards.

The Great Henge and Return of the Wildspeaker are some more draw spells that your deck could really benefit from.

Tendershoot Dryad dosen’t make tokens that are too big, but will quickly fill your board since it makes a Saporling at each upkeep.

Bramble Sovereign will let you make tokens of your creatures which can be good for your non legendary ones.

Arasta of the Endless Web is similar to tendershoot deyad, giving you a wider board quickly.

Quartzwood Crasher gives you some big tokens depending on damage you deal.

Aurelia, the Warleader is just a good add in for double combats, giving you more attack triggers with your commander.

I added Bramble Sovereign and removed Centaur's Herald I felt the Centaur's Herald was too weak.

Added Elder Gargaroth for Kazandu Tuskcaller. I feel Elder Gargaroth has way better value.

I removed Worldspine Wurm because 15 mana is a lot I don't have a way to trick this card into play. I added Quartzwood Crasher in it's place.

I removed Call of the Conclave for a Helm of the Host. Why make weak centaur tokens when I can make tokens of much more powerful creatures.
