Triumph of the Hordes Discussion

Glad could help :). If Beastmaster won’t play well, you can always try with one use ultimate rush cards like: Overrun (you may have problems with GGG mana though) or Triumph of the Hordes .

Besides, like your list because it is not common to have a rat deck without neither Rat Colony nor Relentless Rats . The only thing here is that your main creatures are pretty expensive (5-6 mana) and you only have one ramp card type (elves). I would experiment with other ramp cards like Golgari Signet , Utopia Sprawl , Primal Growth to put them into play faster. Not really sure if it will work, but worth to experiment ;)

As for the combo with Skullclamp , it works like this:

It isn't infinite, but it certainly does go an extremely long way. The issue is that it is very mana-intensive and you end up hitting a wall if you aren't drawing into more Rat Colony . Eventually if you are not careful, you could damage your boardstate and spend an entire turn doing nothing. In order to prevent this, you'd want at least 55% of your deck solely dedicated to Rat Colony just to ensure adequate positioning.

That is why I prefer Search for Blex . You get the top 5 cards and you can pay 3 life to select which one(s) you want. If I top a single Relentless Rats , I can just spend the 3 life. Maybe I top a Triumph of the Hordes , or maybe I hit all junk and ditch it all but this means I am 5 cards deeper into my library which is also a win. Most I've ever kept were 3 cards. That's also why I have elements of lifegain in the deck, to off-set the lifeloss.

I personally would just rather tutor out Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Gaea's Cradle , Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Cabal Coffers and / or Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun and call it a day. Far less interactions, I keep my rats, I get higher devotion, I get higher toughness and I become far more mana efficient while securing draw off of my Commander.

YES! I built an Edric, Spymaster of Trest deck with only commons and uncommon creatures that were small and hard to block. Cards like Faerie Seer , Slither Blade , and Invisible Stalker make some great card draw, and your wincons can be things like Overrun and Triumph of the Hordes . Throw in some non-rare counterspells like Counterspell and Arcane Denial and you're off to the races.

Heya! I’m currently working on the cheaper/casual variant of my Beledros deck, but for yours, I’d say some considerations would definitely be:


Eternal Witness

Abrupt Decay

Nature's Claim

Krosan Grip

Road of Return

And Triumph of the Hordes , if you can get any of them I’ll have a more definitive list of potential cards in the other list, if you’d wanna pick off that one too; though it’ll be a day or two!

Hi, not sure if you have not included this card on purpose but Bow of Nylea would give all your tokens death touch as well and any creature you have that is missing it. Triumph of the Hordes will give your creatures an additional +1/+1 boost, trample and the chance to use all your tokens to kill everyone on the board with 10 infect; even if they can block with your death touch on top, you are going to make some eyes water.

Shadowspear and Bonds of Mortality will stop your opponents indestructible as well as there additional perks. Hope this helped!

Metachemist Thanks for the recommendations!I have had problems with closing out the game. It hold well throughout, but I haven't been able to get the finishing blow. I'll definitively try out your recommendations, especially the stumpy options. Eyeing that Triumph of the Hordes .

This a pretty interesting deck! I like it!

The only thing I can see is that it kinda lacks any solid win conditions outside of Eldrazi go stompy. You could easily slot in Thassa's Oracle Greater Good and/or Altar of Dementia for the win con that doesn't care if your opponents exist.

Or if you wanted to keep it stompy you could run Triumph of the Hordes Craterhoof Behemoth Finale of Devastation or any Overrun style of effects

Hey all,

Always a pleasure to see to many comments! gvazdaus, Triumph of the Hordes is way outside of the scope of this deck - it's meant to be low to the ground and as efficient and competitive as possible (within the context of Sliver Tribal). Infect is great, I love it as a mechanic but Triumph of the Hordes is just too dependent on my board having enough creatures with enough evasion to be an effective and consistent wincon in the cEDH space. Fun combo regardless. Thanks for bringing it up!

luca11rise, jasinatael pretty much sums up my opinion on Diffusion Sliver - it is terrible in EDH. It's effect is essentially a polite ask as opposed to a hard "no" when compared to Crystalline Sliver . If you truly mean to stop your opponents from targeting your creatures, there is only one option and it definitely isn't Diffusion . That card is designed for a standard-like environment (60 cards with 4 copies of). I do agree with the assessment of Dregscape Sliver - that one is pretty cool and can enable some pretty wild combos that interact with the graveyard.
