Tergrid, God of Fright

Legendary Creature — God


Whenever an opponent sacrifices a nontoken permanent or discards a permanent card, you may put that card from a graveyard onto the battlefield under your control.

@joe_mama_joe: Thanks for the kind words. So I'll try to explain our choice here:

Cao Cao, Lord of Wei isn't rated that high, he's just a middle of the road commander, but he can quickly wreak havoc along with untappers, Waste Not or Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip. Black has also access to all the good tutors, removal and ritual ramp.

Eldmoi on Burncard

I didn't do so great at the modern clash event at PAX East, quickly lost to my 2nd opponent's burn deck. On the bright side, each player I went up against gave me some tips, so I received more insight into how to improve this deck going forward.

I am considering adding some cards I recently played in Arena like Thoughtseize, Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger, Tinybones, Trinket Thief, Valki, God of Lies  Flip, Rankle, Master of Pranks, Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip along with a few others like Surgical Extraction.

I found that playing full playsets of fewer unique cards is more beneficial than playing 1-3 cards of more varied cards. I prefer making decks with as many different cards that can fit a theme, so I may create a different version of this deck in Commander which would allow that formulaic approach.

I was inspired to start playing paper formats again because of this event however, and will create a new Pioneer deck based on elements of this deck except in Grixis colors using cards like Drown in the Loch, Ashiok, Nightmare Muse and Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip.

Overall, I had a great time playing this deck at PAX and definitely have to treat it with some fresh new sleeves!

CamraMaan on Timing interaction between Tergrid, God …

My confusion is in the wording of Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip, which appears to trigger on a sacrifice or discard, versus triggering on the cards/permanents hitting the graveyard. Then it requires the cards to come from the graveyard. So does Planar Void exile cards before Tergrid can pull them out, or do the Tergrid and Planar Void triggers hit at the same time, allowing me to stack them in any order...? The goal is to exile the non-permanent cards that get discarded.

When Runed Servitor dies each player draws a card. Since I can pay 1cc into Words of Waste to make everyone else discard a card, will those cards drawn by my opponents be in their hands by the time Words of Waste makes them discard? This is for a Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip deck, so the timing makes a difference if none of my opponents have any cards in hand.

Thanks in advance! :)

Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip should probably be in here somewhere, that might be better than Grave Titan

The comparison to Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip seems spot on. Powerful, yes, but powerful in that way that makes opponents not want to be at the table rather than insta-wins, and it's really just up to play groups whether they want to say yay or nay to things like that.

It's just a Commander that can only do annoying stuff to others. Not just once, but whenever anything happens with it, there's a huge bummer enclosed for one player at the table. Not bannable, but something to sigh at whenever someone reveals it as their Commander. Like Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip, like Hokori, Dust Drinker, nobody who runs this at the head of a deck has fun in mind for the entire table, just annoyance for anyone who isn't them. I don't think that's the way to play a casual format, but I don't need a ban to explicitly tell me that. But they have banned Iona, Shield of Emeria so who knows what the RC will decide on it.

That being said, my prediction is that when you build the deck, and it does the thing a few times, it will get boring for the pilot soon enough that it won't be that much of a problem in the long term. I think the format has self-regulated worse cards than this before and it's more clout than this Commander deserves to be called out for instabanning.
