Thraximundar Discussion

Gressil on Grixis Cruel Control w/ Discard

1 week ago

Hi Daron6! Thanks for very much for your suggestions, they're really valuable!

I've followed almost all of your tips, however I have a question regarding a BIG finisher. Is Pearl Lake Ancient really that big and strong of a creature, or can it be substituted with something else like Thraximundar? Or does it's inclusion by you come from the fact that it can stack and can't be countered? Also aren't Nicol Bolas planeswalkers enough of a finisher, or do you feel like I need creatures specifically? Tasigur, the Golden Fang is a nice addition, I'll definitely add it!

Removing Mind Funeral also enticed me to exchange Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker for Kess, Dissident Mage to have additional counters always available from the grave.

Overall I feel like here's a lot of card draw - 15 in total from various cards (counting Flashback from Think Twice. Don't you feel like that's a little too much?

I've also replaced a few basic lands with Dual Check lands, they're pretty cheap and having two or more basic lands at any point in the game shouldn't be that hard to achieve.

Yeah, feel that, man. I'm saving to get some new commanders to build around. I'm tired of building Yarok, the Desecrated, Esper control, and Thraximundar. And for basics, have you considered removing the mana symbol and edges from a Zendikar/Amonkhet land with a Sharpie?

DemonDragonJ on How Good is Comet Storm …

bushido_man96, I have already replaced Comet Storm with Genesis Ultimatum in my Riku of Two Reflections deck, but I wonder if I should replace it in my Thraximundar deck or my Kresh the Bloodbraided deck. I have contemplated Exsanguinate for both decks, and it would be great for the red/black/green deck, but the red/black/blue deck already has too strong of an imbalance in favor of black, so I do not wish to make that imbalance even worse.

Thraximundar can devastate your opponents, as can Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre.

Hello everyone. I'm in kind of a quandary here regarding what to build next in Commander. I've got my decks Yennett Simplicity, Yarok's Pals, I have an affinity for Voltron, a Thraximundar deck, a Nath of the Gilt-Leaf deck, and a bunch of assorted War of the Spark cards. But I'm undecided as to how to move forward in my EDH life. I've kind of landed on three ideas:

  • The Mimeoplasm Ooze tribal jank deck. I love Ooze (it's my second favorite Tribe after crocodiles) and it would be a good chance to support my Yarok at the same time.

  • A Voltron deck: I don't have a Voltron EDH deck yet, but I have a couple of decent equipment plus Steelshaper's Gift, and it would be a good time to get some Voltron now that a lot of its key cards have been reprinted in Double Masters.

  • Some Form of Eldrazi deck: I love Eldrazi, and I want more. I have a few smaller ones and a couple big bois (none of the titans, of course) and want to build a Dimir/Sultai/Grixis build around these cool dudes, themed maybe around exile, probably go with Esper Sen Triplets if I do that.

Let me know what you think! I'm also thinking of instead getting some fetches and some other EDH staples like shocks. I also have to upgrade my Yennett Simplicity deck to clear some of the massive acquireboard.

I have replaced In Garruk's Wake with Torment of Hailfire, because the former card does not cause Thraximundar's ability to trigger, whereas the latter card does, and, thus, it is a better card for this deck, and doing so lowered this deck's average converted mana cost from 4.81 to 4.69, which is very good, because this deck has the highest mana curve out of all my decks.

Wasn't Epochalyptik the former moderator? Ive been here over 6 yrs now. RNR_Gaming thanks for the shout. Suns_Champion "FOR THE LEGION"!. Femme_Fatale is a fucking site pro! Podkomorka's response time is amazing. And has an awesome pEDH list. SynergyBuild probably has the highest edh IQ. Has the format pretty much figured out.

My friend pipercraven told me about this site. I was looking for a place to upload my decks so I could look at them without sprawling my deck out over the table. He also introduced me to edhrec.

These decks are my prides. I've built them and never took them apart. They have stood the test of time. And I've had them from the beginning.

FOR THE LEGION!. There is this saying I always said. "Iroas the only boros commander". For the longest time there just wasn't good boros commanders. We have feather and winota now.

OG Multani. This deck idea first came to me as. I want every creature in the deck to have a power and toughness greater than its casting cost. And I want to draw cards for casting them. It was so simple at first. But this deck has gone through alot of changes. It's just such a simple gameplan when playing mono green stompy

The best for last. I built this deck to beat a grixis deck that ran Thraximundar as its cmdr. It was troublesome to beat because our meta was pretty heavy on casting out on one big creature. But thrax comes out and deals with it consistently. So I decided to build a deck that didn't care about chump blocking and sacrificing dumb creature tokens to thrax. This deck has gone through the most development. It's my best deck with the most consistent win %. I felt at one point that there was nothing g I wanted to change to the deck (perfect). So I started to foil it out. Turns out I was wrong. Magic keeps printing awesome cards.

I also have a deck list of cards that are good for devotion.

Thraximundar was the first commander I had.

Gift of Orzhova was actually in my first good deck, a Gatecrash Limited deck. My favorite card from it was a promo Angelic Skirmisher.
