Okay, 9-lives, I answered Lhurgyof's challenge: "Let's try a common or uncommon fortification (Darksteel Garrison is currently the only fortification)."

Then Stardragon was ninja'd, so I forwarded their challenge: "make a commander that can abuse death effects like Kokusho, the Evening Star or Sprouting Thrinax"

This is the current challenge.

9-lives, It's just like Equipment. In every possible way, except it equips lands, not creatures.

Wirewood Barracks

Artifact - Fortification

Fortified Land has ", : Create a 1/1 green Elf Warrior creature token."


Stardragon's Challenge was "make a commander that can abuse death effects like Kokusho, the Evening Star or Sprouting Thrinax"

Marit Lage, Lord of the Abyssal Unknown

Legendary Creature- Eldrazi Kraken Horror

At the beginning of your upkeep, each opponent loses X life and you create X 3/3 Blue Black Kraken Horror creature token with fear where X is the number of creatures that died this turn

When Marit Lage, Lord of the Abyssal Unknown dies shuffle your graveyard into your library

make a commander that can abuse death effects like Kokusho, the Evening Star or Sprouting Thrinax

Rith probably isn't the best saproling commander. I think you just lose too much value being unable to play AEther Mutation, Ghave, Guru of Spores, Slimefoot, the Stowaway, Sprouting Thrinax, and Supply / Demand. Lifegain always seems like a good idea, but it just adds in the extra step of having to find a way to win the game. If you load up on Blood Artist effects in black and WB, that gives you a better way to affect opponents than hitting a critical mass of creatures to deal 120 combat damage. You also miss Arcane Adaptation, Xenograft, and Conspiracy by not playing black and blue, which seem good.

Personally, I would either go with Karona, False God or Tana, the Bloodsower+Tymna the Weaver.

As for general card replacements, the ramp package is where I see the most room for improvement that is easy on the budget. I highly recommend taking your cues from Dana Roach's EDHREC article on green land ramp.

In general, I would lean away from auras, with the possible exception of Verdant Embrace- there are a few cards like that missing, so I'd check out the saproling cards on Scryfall. That would also be the place to look for tribal cards, although you can also see the most popular ones on the general tribal page and saproling tribal page at EDHREC.

BX223Hunter, that dude is probably my favorite dude out of left field, ever. He enables SO MUCH jank its not even funny. Devour is just the beginning. Since I'm commenting I'll make sure you see my deck list: Tana and Reyhan Partner Token Stuff and in my list alone he may as well be a hidden commander, he is THAT powerful when he comes down and I have any sort of board presence. Super important thing to note is that he cares when ANYONE sacrifices a PERMANENT, not just you and not just creatures :D

To your question about Sprouting Thrinax, I tend to dislike one-shots even though in this style of deck, he's more like 4 sac fodders for 3 mana, which is fine but there are usually better things I'd want to do with the mana at any given time.

and have you guys tried out Sprouting Thrinax? He seems like he's begging to be devoured!

Hey Chasmolinker, thanks for the reply! The meta is extremely creature heavy. That's why I'm running Harsh Scrutiny in the mainboard (which I might replace with a Despise instead), with a third Duress in the sideboard to swap out when needed. We calculate based on the price on MTGGoldfish and I'm at $102 right now (https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/2290506#paper), so you're probably right about Inquisition of Kozilek

We only have one burn-ish deck (which also happens to be me running a mono-red prowess variant), so I feel like lifegain can live in the sideboard for now (e.g. Pulse of Murasa & Spike Feeder ). I chose Grisly Salvage over Pulse of Murasa because I was getting mana-screwed pretty regularly. The cheap land package is really difficult to do in these particular three colours. But, Grisly Salvage is a card that I can use when I need to grab a land or when I want to grab a potentially game-swinging threat. And, I feel like since I'm not running fetches or anything that tosses things into the graveyard Pulse of Murasa will only grab low-cmc creatures that I had played earlier in the game rather than massive hulks that can swing things in my favour. That being said, Pulse of Murasa may be better in the late game, but worse in the early game (which is where I have trouble).

As for Aether Hub , I've felt like it's value is extremely dependent on getting Winding Constrictor or Glint-Sleeve Siphoner out. If you are desperate and have to use its energy counter, Aether Hub can be a dead land due to the high number of coloured spells in the deck. That's why I cut one. But, when it goes off, it really goes off! TBH, the land base is where this version of the deck really struggles (as well as the reliance on the Winding Constrictor / Glint-Sleeve Siphoner combo). So, any additional thoughts on these issues would be super helpful!

Bristling Hydra is a super interesting addition and might help with my Aether Hub problem. I'm worried it might be a bit slow and isn't a big enough payoff in the 4cmc slot. Greenbelt Rampager might also work in here. I honestly am not sure about either of those. I'll give it a shot either way!

Champion of Lambholt might also be a bit slot. On turn 4 and beyond, the plan is basically to play one big creature a turn (hopefully). So, I feel like Champion of Lambholt won't grow fast enough. I think you recommended Managorger Hydra in a comment thread earlier. Do you think either of these is better than Sprouting Thrinax in this deck?

Also, do you have a preference between Phyrexian Revoker and Pithing Needle ? I guess the threat and the ability to grow Scavenging Ooze with Phyrexian Revoker isn't worth the vulnerability it has as a creature. Pithing Needle is probably the better choice.

Other cards I've been thinking about: Domri, Chaos Bringer , Domri Rade , Chandra, Pyromaster , Arlinn Kord  Flip, Vampire Nighthawk

Hey JostinFrutz awesome list. What are some of the other decks in your playgroup? Is the card pool Modern legal only? I like Pulse of Murasa over Grisly Salvage . It really helps against burn. Duress is probably better than Inquisition of Kozilek due to the budget constraints.

I would tend to go towards a more energy focused list for the budget. Bristling Hydra comes to mind. I’d cut a swamp for the 4th Aether Hub and probably cut Harsh Scrutiny for Duress . You want to win by having bigger threats than the opponent in this scenario. Champion of Lambholt could be fun with the +1/+1 counters over Sprouting Thrinax .

SB I would squeeze Pithing Needle in there somewhere.

Looks like a lot of fun. I might expand on this on my page sometime soon.
