Doing it without Tron lands could give you a brew that looks very similar to existing Soulherder archtypes (just without Soulherder)... something like this might be almost-competitive (although at this point, it's a very different list to what you're trying to achieve, so not sure if this is the route you'd want to go down):

deathjunky If I were trying to build a Modern Panharmonicon with Tron Lands deck, I think i’d initially set myself the following restrictions:

  1. Make sure there’s a full playset of Panharmonicon. The card is important to have in play, so we should be ensuring we get it.

  2. Ensure that the vast majority of the deck benefits from Panharmonicon. I would ditch the Eldrazi entirely for this, and focus on artifacts to make for a toolboxy build using Whir of Invention (this would allow us to get setup, while also getting pieces we need).

  3. Figure out how much we need Tron active. We either need low-ish cmc with Chalice of the Void, or we need to splash green to ensure Tron becomes active. I’m personally in favour of option A, though i think i’d still splash green for the likes of Thragtusk.

I think i’d end up with something like this (just spitballing, so this can easily be refined):

(Note, after going through that exercise, the biggest takeaway I have is that I don’t think Panharmonicon wants to be in the same deck as Tron-lands. If i’d just built this as a UG creature list, instead of a tron based build, i think it’d have been easier to ramp, and have access to better payoffs (i.e Hornet Queen). I think the best path forward for your Panharmonicon might be to ditch Tron)

DemonDragonJ easily. In modern Ephemerate has become a pretty commonly seen tool for this kind of abuse. Outside if that, we’ve seen all Soulherder, Restoration Angel, Flickerwisp, and Eldrazi Displacer harass the format at different stages. There are currently an abundance of insane etb creatures, including Thragtusk, Eternal Witness, Skyclave Apparition, Ice-Fang Coatl just to name a few.

If someone’s unable to build a deck based around abusing etb effects, that’s on them, because the options to do so are vast.

Heya! Back again! I forgot to mention, Chatterfang unfortunately has the color identity of green AND black, so he is not TECNICALLY a legal card in a mono green commander. That being said... I think he fits the bill and would be useful in the deck if you choose to keep it, just maybe mention it to your playgroup and see if they mind!

A few of the cards I think might be a little less impactful than you think. For example, the Ravenous Lindwurm could be upgraded to a Thragtusk if you're looking for a beat stick that gains you life, plus the addition of token production when it dies (and it's like a quarter hahah). In addition, I think some of your equipment might be underwhelming in the long run. In green, card draw is a little hard to come by, so if recommend finding some good sources, maybe like a skull clamp or something!

All in all though, play with what you have! Try evaluating cards in terms of, "Does this help me win the game, or does it further what I want to do with the deck?". So while scrounging babar is a pet favorite monkey cat of mine, it could brick if you draw it late game, than something like a Cultivate!

@Thebestnoob hmm, the creatures are either too expensive or else not impactful enough. Although I believe I’ll replace Walker of the Grove with Woodfall Primus—an ETB is better than an LTB. But Panharmonicon...that’s a viable addition. It’ll either be drawn before Thragtusk and be on the battlefield waiting for him, or else can be played the turn after to escalate the token generation and life gain to absurd levels. Either way it serves a purpose. I’ll see about working that one in. Thank you for the suggestions.

@Jackfrost23 You’re probably right. I was deep into building another deck when I came across Thragtusk. I threw this together in haste, wanting to get it out there but not wanting to lose focus on the other deck. I didn’t really take time to scour the card lists for creatures with good ETB’s. Any recommendations?

You know, I never understood why Thragtusk was good until I realized his token generation effect triggered whenever he left the battlefield in general and not just when he died.

Nevinyrral's Disk has been printed recently, so its fairly cheap and helps the gameplan.

In terms of dies triggers, Thragtusk or Whisperwood Elemental are the ideal 'leaves behind a body', persist creatures like Safehold Elite or Heartmender offer some extra options. Blisterpod and the like exist, but 1/1s are rarely a fast enough clock to close out before the boardstate gets big again.

Alternative cheats include Blizzard Brawl , Darkmoss Bridge cycle etc.

If I was trying to push this to fnm competitive, I'd throw in Upheaval and mana rocks to try and get a reliable '6 mana, win the game' turn.
