Traxos, Scourge of Kroog Discussion

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor on Commander Legends Spoilers

Coward_Token - good catch. I missed the "until end of your next turn" portion. Still, I think that just makes the card O.K. instead of unplayable. 9 mana for a spell better win me the game or put me so far ahead that my opponents can't catch up. Soulfire Eruption is just too high variance to be worth running over cards like Commune with Lava, Ignite the Future, or Light Up the Stage, which all can be cast for much cheaper. To be honest though, of the 4 spoiled so far, only the blue 9 mana mythic seems potentially worthwhile. Also, its nice to finally see green get arguably the worst mythic of a cycle as Reshape the Earth is just plain bad.

This is it, this is perfection. Juri, Master of the Revue is exactly what I have always wanted Judith, the Scourge Diva to be. Time to start brewing Rakdos aristocrats again.

Commander's Plate is a nice little bonus for voltron commanders with limited color identities. Hope of Ghirapur and Traxos, Scourge of Kroog will love this card.

Seeing Nevinyrral get a card is pretty cool and he is pretty solid to boot. Stapling his Disk's ability onto him might be a little oppressive in those colors though, but still a cool design.

Also, Splicers finally got their legendary creature. I am surprised that he is mono green though, but he has a pretty solid partner pairing with Livio, or if you want to get the best splicer out there in Wing Splicer (and some artifact synergies), Ishai would be a solid partner.

Lastly, it's nice to see more landfall hate showing up with Nightshade Harvester. As much as I love my lands decks, it is pretty tough to punish people for playing lots of lands outside of large scale land destruction effects or stax effects that hurt the whole table (play more Tectonic Edge people!). This gives black a nice little punisher effect for those aggressively ramping.

Not even kidding. This deck has, like, 6 extra lands.

Take out Labyrinth of Skophos, Blasted Landscape, Emergence Zone, Zhalfirin Void, and Homeward Path. Also, Emrakul, the Aeons Torn is banned, so you need to take that out too. This deck is not geared towards Traxos, Scourge of Kroog. Your commander should instead be Kozilek, the Great Distortion. Tune your deck more towards eldrazi, and cut Spine of Ish Sah and Darksteel Forge.

Hope you find these suggestions helpful.

Ok, here's my suggestion, using lands and then just the cards you've listed above here:

Now, this is probably the best you can build from what you have shown here. But there are improvements you can then work towards, as a lot of these cards aren't optimal. And depending on the format, some aren't legal (for instance, Counterspell isn't modern legal). I think the following would be a good place to start a decent shell to start a stronger deck from:

From that, you could start working towards something like this, in the longer term (most the additions are pretty cheap and affordable cards):

Hope this helps!! :)

Your artifact ramp could be more optimized.

-

Take out all the Diamonds and put in Signets, they don't come into play tapped and are great for fixing your mana. Lotus Petal could be considered since it plays well with your commander, Fellwar Stone is also great or even Mind Stone. Just don't play mana ramp that comes into play tapped.

-

I would also try to leave some creatures out for powerfull enchantments/artifacts since your commander is focused on them, if you cast them you'll get a creature for free. I would consider these enchantments/artifacts: Grasp of Fate, Search for Azcanta  Flip, Darksteel Mutation, Estrid's Invocation, Mirrormade, Copy Enchantment, Skullclamp, Sword of the Animist, Lightning Greaves.

-

Alela goes infinite quite easy with cards like Banishing Knack or Retraction Helix combined with a Battered Golem, Mirran Spy or Traxos, Scourge of Kroog and any 0 drop atrifact; Tormod's Crypt, Ornithopter, Everflowing Chalice, Memnite orvSpellbook. Making infinite faeries and infinite casts (Storm). Put an Aetherflux Reservoir next to this combo and BOOM.

-

If you don't like to go infinite you could also play Coat of Arms making your faeries lethal on the spot or Magister Sphinx to mess with someone specifically.

Actually now I look at the interaction between Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner and Traxos, Scourge of Kroog he seems like a very playable inclusion, I might use him to replace Nyxborn Brute

DadHumanPraetor on Unsealing Ignition Gruul

Glad you are having fun with the build. I have considered a number of different cards to add Traxos, Scourge of Kroog seems viable. Verdurous Gearhulk and Wolfir Silverheart both enter as 8/8 creatures or can pump another creature that we could target with Chandra's Ignition Lots of options, Gruul has so many fatties to choose from play whatever works in your meta.

Eldritch Retort

Instant

Choose one:

-Counter target non-creature spell. Scry 1.

-Return target creature to it's owner's hand. Scry 1


I thought this could be a nice card for my Traxos, Scourge of Kroog EDH deck, since I have so little interaction in the deck.

Uh... I think we're on TypicalTimmy's challenge. See above.

MinotaurtheMatador on Godzilla/Kaiju Commander Deck

Progenitus or O-kagachi, vengeful spirit work great for King Ghidorah.

Then there is Traxos, Scourge of Kroog for Mecha Godzilla

I'd say Flickerwisp is solid for Mothra. She might not be Legendary, but you can use her perfectly for some insane value and jank.

For Anguirus, I'd hit hard with Tetzimoc, Primal Death.

Maybe Ghalta, Primal Hunger as Godzilla herself?

I'm trying to think who Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle might serve well as...

Anyway, a complete list of all monsters in the Godzilla franchise! :D
