Terror of the Peaks

Gruul to me is attacking with tall trampling creatures with reckless abandon to destroy your opponent/s with combat damage companied with indirect damage like Terror of the Peaks or Vicious Shadows

hey Spirits! long time no see haha. So i was wondering what are the requirements for alternatives to Bogardan Hellkite? Would Red Dragon, Demanding Dragon, Scourge of Valkas, Terror of the Peaks or Tyrant of Kher Ridges work?

Gleeock on EDH - Kill 1 opponent …

Well the last salty situation I was in was playing someone's Minsc & Boo, Timeless Heroes deck against them. They had a Miirym, Sentinel Wyrm deck popping off & Terror of the Peaks to boot - those megathreats all got returned to hand by someone else (with onboard haste). Instead of using the draw function I just aggro killed him somewhat early with the hamster... It is funny, sometimes I just acknowledge someone with a "yep"/"killing you is still the plan" & when I just acknowledge, then move on they will almost start to talk themselves into a really convincing argument for why player elimination was the right move. Often enough I get the "I had X & Y waiting in hand" & I just go: "you are not making me feel worse about making sure that didn't happen" :) It is just kindof funny how 80% of these individuals just want to vent some sort of closure & when they've said their piece, usually, you can let their own words sink in. This is an outlier situation as well, I usually just use equal Machiavellian strategy without cutting any deals & usually without needing to offer much rationale & typically it is just an accepted thing.

crismissingtheh I really like your deck! The play group that I'm in only plays at high power so thats where I'm trying to keep the deck at but I really appreciate it! I also appreciate that you follow my deck. I'm still waiting for the "all magic dragon combo." The only one ive found is Cloudstone Curio + Lathliss, Dragon Queen + Ganax, Astral Hunter + Slumbering Dragon + Scourge of Valkas//Terror of the Peaks but at that point I should just play a different commander that could achieve that faster. I think once they eventually (hopefully) make dragons that combo off of each other for infinite damage then ill switch over to that.

Hi seshiro_of_the_orochi,

Thanks for the suggestions. I have one copy of Terror of the Peaks in my dragon deck and I do not plan on buying another for this deck because of its price. I already run Warstorm Surge. :) Meteor Golem is great, but I don't run him just because to me he feels too boring. Tectonic Reformation is a great suggestion! I will consider that.

Terror of the Peaks and it's budget buddy Warstorm Surge would both be great additions to benefit from fatties entering the board. Meteor Golem is another big creature you want to drop for free. Finally, how about Tectonic Reformation? You'll propably get to a point when you don't need more lands, so giving them cycling seems useful.

Oh no! A functional monowhite commander! EVERYBODY PANIC!

Alright. I get that Elesh Norn, Mother of Machines is a big deal. A decent statline, vigilance, Yarok, the Desecrated as one ability and a much, much, much better version of Hushbringer as the other. She's certainly a powerhouse. But should she see the hammer? I think not.

I'll not say that Machine Mom isn't disruptive. She can shut down a good amount of popular cards in the format, such as Bramble Sovereign, Terror of the Peaks, and the notorious combo piece Palinchron. She can and will double up monowhite Oblivion Ring style effects. Honestly, I think that doubling Seal Away type cards is going to be the stax-ier part of Mama Machine. She doesn't shut down many combo decks (unless they use the aforementioned Palinchron), and really doesn't answer most cEDH decks. She hates out on ETBs, sure, but Yasharn, Implacable Earth hates out on sacrifice, arguably better. Gaddock Teeg is just absurdly good stax, and both Gaddok and Yasharn grant access to Green.

If you want to make Elesh Norn stax, then, ok, that's probably a deck that will give everyone a headache. But... are we going to cry "BAN HER!" for one way of building around Machine Mommy? If you want to run stax, go and buy a Hokori, Dust Drinker or Oloro, Ageless Ascetic. They're much better depriving everyone of fun than New Norn. Elesh Norn can do so much more than just stop everyone from having fun.

Honestly, a lot of the complaints that I see here are against the Stax archetype in general, not Norn. And I get that Norn seems like a good Stax commander, but... If hate stax, than complain about Hokori, or Oloro, or yes, even Archelos, Lagoon Mystic. Stax has its place: cEDH and masochistic playgroups.

Something that no one here is referencing is the Game Knights video in which Josh Lee Kwai played with a (proxied) Elesh Norn, and his deck was oppressive, but nothing too bad. Notably, Norn's restrictive ability saw a lot less use than her double ability, which was used to double small value abilities, as well as oblivion ring effects. The deck won the game, but it was very close and I wouldn't say it made Norn look banable. Not by a long shot.

So, in conclusion, Elesh Norn, Mother of Machines is a powerhouse, who certainly can be a problem, but probably isn't the worst card in EDH. Really, a lot of the complaints about her are complaints about Stax in general.

Thanks for reading my rant.

Also, did anyone else notice the fact that Navani (from Brandon Sanderson's Stormlight Archive) and Elesh Norn have the same epithet? That always makes me crack up.

With so many dragons, what do you think of Miirym, Sentinel Wyrm? Terror of the Peaks is an insane card as well.
