Traxos, Scourge of Kroog

Traxos, Scourge of Kroog enters the battlefield tapped and doesn't untap during your untap step.

When you cast a historic spell, untap Traxos. (Artifacts, legendaries, and Sagas are historic.)

I would ditch Traxos, Scourge of Kroog for Waning Wurm . It benefits from anthems and if you are lucky he will cost a lot less since you run Bontu's Monument and Jet Medallion . Nice deck!

Cool take on It. There's definitely alot I can use for mine. Did you consider putting Traxos, Scourge of Kroog in there a 7/7 for 4 isn't bad.

Hey! I have a decklist that I accidentally found some insane infinite in!

Chulane and Urza's tale of too many artifacts

So all you need is Traxos, Scourge of Kroog + Banishing Knack any 0 drop artifact creature (such as Ornithopter ). With Chulane out, we cast the 0 drop, Traxos untaps, bounce the 0 drop with Traxos, etc. and draw our deck out, drop all of our lands, kill off Chulane with beast within (so we don't deck out), cast either Altar of the Brood or Aetherflux Reservoir if you want to win right there, or Urza, Lord High Artificer or Earthcraft if you want infinite mana from that one 0 drop that keeps entering.

So an amazing T3 win would be:

T1: Land, sol ring, any 2 drop ramp myr

T2: Land, Traxos

T3: Chulane, any 0 drop creature, Banishing Knack == Infinite draw into any wincon

Granted this would be a perfect draw, but there are ways to grab instants and artifacts scattered through the deck

If you are still looking for suggestions.. I made something with the new Chulane that had a few interesting techs Chulane and Urza's tale of too many artifacts. Traxos, Scourge of Kroog + Banishing Knack + any free artifact creature gives you infinite casts/etbs (I have Urza, Lord High Artificer to give infinite mana, or Altar of the Brood to mill everyone, or Aetherflux Reservoir to kill people off). Other fun things are Reshape for a tutor, Mystic Forge for a little filtering... lots of fun things!

If you are choosing to play Skilled Animator , I would play some one drop artifact spells. That way on turn three you can play the animator and swing with a 5/5. I would drop the Dimir Locket and add something like Fountain of Renewal or something close to that. Also I would drop Thought Collapse all together. A creature that might help you out and is pretty cheap $ is Traxos, Scourge of Kroog

  • I don't know what the win-con is precisely. It isn't clear.
  • I see an Emrakul and Cyclonic Rift , but beyond that, I see nothing that is game winning.
  • The strategy is indiscernible.
  • Lot of 0-drops, low draw, token spam, and control, but nothing that leads up to a game changer or really synergizes effectively.

  • While playtesting your deck, I found myself out of cards and getting dead draws a lot.

  • Most of the time, I would get a good board by turn 6 or 7, under the assumption my opponents left my board alone and didn't kill me by that point.

  • So I must say, I really do think you need to narrow down the strategy, because so far, it's hard to tell if this is tempo control or battle cruiser.

  • If you want tempo, definitely find ways to generate as many tokens as possible. Whirler Rogue and Myr Battlesphere are good for that, especially if you decide to use bouncers like Deadeye Navigator or spells like Displace . (Deadeye can kinda go infinite in some situations)

  • If you're going for a battle cruiser, Metalwork Colossus , Traxos, Scourge of Kroog , and Darksteel Colossus are definitely viable options.
  • If you want Stax, well then you're going to need to make a completely different kind of deck.

  • A description would definitely aid people in figuring out what your deck is supposed to do.

  • Good luck with the brew.

I don't think Traxos, Scourge of Kroog fits very will in the deck personally, not to much you can do to abuse him and he is pretty Meh overall.
