Traxos, Scourge of Kroog Discussion

She put in into exile, then noticed that she had a Negate in hand, and asked if she could play it.
I said no, because Traxos, Scourge of Kroog was already in exile.
I was talking about this with a friend, who said I was rules lawyering, and they would have let her play the Negate
It would probably have cost me the match.

Golgari Guildgate could probably be swapped for Command Tower . Other useful cards might be Darksteel Juggernaut , Bonehoard , Shambling Suit , Steel Overseer and Traxos, Scourge of Kroog . There's some pricey versions of some of these cards for a few bucks or more but there's also 50 cent versions.

alrighty, so here are some I would definately cut: Traxos, Scourge of Kroog (while good for mass piloting, really not necissary with the token production), Faith's Reward (doesn't return tokens), All That Glitters (single target buff, 2 for 1s are bad, especially in EDH), Springleaf Drum (not really useful. keep wanting to have a use for it, but not sure what for), Prototype Portal (kinda meh, not a fan of imprint in EDH. needs ALOT of mana to avoid 2 for 1), Devout Invocation (to slow, needs to survive full rotation), Myr Propagator (replicates to slowly), Karn, Silver Golem (vehicles are bigger than their CMC, literal downgrade), and Alloy Myr (overcosted for a manadork)

Cirdan13: The size of a creature isn't exactly connected to its CMC/mana value (trying to accomodate to that). It may be that way, but that's a point where gameplay strikes flavour. Just look at Traxos, Scourge of Kroog , Doran, the Siege Tower or frickin' Zilortha, Strength Incarnate . These things a ginormous, but are four, three and five mana.

Whenever ~ deals combat damage to an opponent, you may return it to its owner's hand. If you do, untap up to three target lands.

Thank you for your comment hardhitta71194! Youre right, Pia's Revolution in combination with Sai, Master Thopterist makes a real fun combination, making your opponent having to decide between taking the damage or letting me cast an artifact again to produce a thopter and potentially untap Traxos, Scourge of Kroog and gain 2 life from Forsaken Monument is very satisfying. I actually did consider including Arcbound Ravager and Mishra's Bauble , which would of course both make much sense in this deck. The reason why i didnt is because, on one hand I was on a budget when building this deck and buying 4 Arcbound Ravager would have exceeded my budget. On the other hand, I kind of have this idea in my head that my decks always have to synergise perfectly and look good at the same time, which doesnt always make much sense. For example I couldnt include Arcbound Ravager because it wouldve been the only artifact creature in this deck thats not a construct, meaning i wouldnt be able to fetch it with Scrapyard Recombiner . Same with Mishra's Bauble , Im sure it would be great in this deck, but I cant include a card that lets me look at the top card of a players library without somehow using this information for another card. Colors of course had to be balanced too, 6 of every kind. So yea, Im sure there are quite a few things to improve here, but this is the best combination of a small budget, utility, appearence and synergy i could come up with. Thanks again and have a good day!

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.
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.
