Tetzimoc, Primal Death Discussion

The deck is finished for now. I will play it a couple times and see what I need to change to improve the deck. One of the cards I am not entirely sure about is Tetzimoc, Primal Death , but I just like it. I might substitute it for Koma, Cosmos Serpent , Maelstrom Wanderer or Urabrask the Hidden . We will see how it performs.

May I suggest Massacre Girl as a nice, clean, cheap boardwipe? If you consider being mean, Horobi, Death's Wail, Cauldron of Souls and Tetzimoc, Primal Death might be worth a second look.

how are you getting Tetzimoc, Primal Death into your hand to use its ability?

Some includes to think about are;

Oblivion Stone for removal

Tetzimoc, Primal Death to target enemy creatures from hand with Dismiss Into Dreams on the field.

Pernicious Deed puts in work. It's a threat that keeps opponents from playing stuff until it's gone.

Protean Hulk is a great creature tutor, especially when paired with Greater Good or Diabolic Intent

So, I don't think a Tetzimoc, Primal Death deck could ever be anything past casual, but I'm interested to hear everyone's thoughts on how YOU would build around him. Seems like a fun challenge at least...

Similar to Giant Oyster and Sand Squid, a card I really want for Modern (maybe in MH2?):

Servent of Unesh

Creature - Bird Wizard


, , Exert Servent of Unesh: Tap target creature. That creature doesn't untap during its controller's untap step for as long as Servant of Unesh remains tapped.


Tapping down a creature with a cheap flyer for every two turns seems versatile and good enough to see standard play, at the very least.

I think it'd likely see Pioneer play, but maybe not Modern, but I like how MH1 included color-shifted mechanics, and thus would place it there.

I'd like to see a legendary card which would be cool in standard/pioneer/modern,

but not in commander, like Tetzimoc, Primal Death or Dragonlord Kolaghan. Commanders like Child of Alara and Elenda, the Dusk Rose aren't what I mean. The fact that you can't directly send a card to the command zone and get its valuable death trigger is not what I mean. I mean cards that fundamentally are difficult to work with the rules of how commander works.

Personally, my Elenda deck just exiles her from the graveyard to the command zone for value or reanimates her. It's not difficult to handle the dies vs. command zone thing.

I'm wondering if you could use the ability on Tetzimoc, Primal Death to put prey counters on you opponents creatures before you untap? Is there a period of time you could apply counters before you untap, or does it instantly move to your untap step after your opponent passes turn?

In summary, is there a period of time after your turn starts, but before your untap, that you could use abilities at instant speed?
