Hey. I really love Maze's End and this is a good way of playing it.

However, have you thought about giving this deck a little twist? Think about World Shaper and how he could potentially allow you to have 10 gates by turn 5 instead of turn 11. A faster combo is a better combo.

Best of lucks

shwanerz88, thanks for the feedback. I definitely forgot about Krosan Tusker and it fits right in. It needs a spot in the deck and potentially replaces a sorcery fetch currently in the build. World Shaper has some value, for sure. Will have a tougher time determining what's worth pulling in the current build to make room. I could it just barely not making the cut, but we'll see. Thanks, again!

The art for Multani is great, I really like your build here. I really like the hatebear additions you have in here with Gaea's Herald & Dosan the Falling Leaf and may need to look into both of them for my Yisan build. I'm not sure if you even really need the Ghalta, some other cards I would suggest would be cards like Krosan Tusker and World Shaper

Some self mill options: Satyr Wayfinder Golgari Grave-Troll Stinkweed Imp
World Shaper can get you tons of lands. Plaguecrafter and or Ravenous Chupacabra for removal. Disciple of Bolas can draw you more cards. Some win conditions could include reanimating something like Razaketh, the Foulblooded early. And otherwise just make lots of mana and reanimate your whole graveyard with Rise of the Dark Realms , the new Finale of Eternity (sorry not on tapped out yet) or just kill everyone with Torment of Hailfire . Good Luck

A couple of things man.

I get the overarching theme is graveyard play, but there is a lot going on. I'd recommend you go directly midrange with it. 2x Enigma Drake , playset Incubation Druid , 1x Muldrotha, the Gravetide 2x Nicol Bolas, 2x Underrealm Lich 3x WORLDSHAPER! So 14 creatures. Flood of Recollection , Recollect and Nature's Spiral contradict Journey to Eternity  Flip and World Shaper .

Unmoored Ego doesn't fit here imo.

I know it doesn't help with a whole bunch of remove this but my point of the comment was maybe to give you a more focused brew to start with. I hope it helps. Also, tell me what you think of my Mardu mid-range Divine Afterlife

multimedia on THRO MOK [[Gruul Tokens]]

1 week ago

Hey, you're welcome. Fauna was just reprinted in Ultimate Masters, she's now a $5 card :)

I think Wave is worth playing because it's a damn powerful card, but I would cut most instants and sorceries for more permanents to make Wave better. This does make Young Pyromancer worse therefore I would cut him. Cards like Dragon Fodder and Krenko's Command are fine, but they're one shot spells that only give you two tokens. You can replace these with other creatures or permanents that give you repeatable tokens even if those cards are more mana. Nest Invader and Mogg War Marshal are other examples of permanents that could replace Fodder and Command.

Cultivate and Ranger's Path are fine cards, but I think they can be cut for creatures who land ramp because then you get two things, a land and a creature to devour. For instance Farhaven Elf can replace Cultivate. Solemn Simulacrum at $5 might be too expensive price, but he's an example that could replace Ranger's Path or Explosive Vegetation . Skyshroud Claim is a much better card than both Path and Vegetation. Another example is Garruk, Primal Hunter could replace Rishkar's Expertise because Garruk's -3 can be a repeatable first part of Expertise. Garruk however might also be out of your price range.

Gilded Lotus , Gruul Signet , Mind Stone can be cut for one drop mana dorks. Altar of the Brood and Hardened Scales can be cut for more dorks. Scales only interacts with three cards in your deck: Thromok, Mycoloth and Avenger. These are however two of the best cards here, but Scales doesn't do anything else for any other creatures for that reason I would cut it.

High CMC creatures who make tokens when they ETB can also be good cards, but only if you have easy ways to recur them or blink/bounce them. Of course there are exceptions such as Avenger. Cards that can be repeatable sources of tokens even if they cost more mana to play are more desirable. Pia and Kiran Nalaar is kind of lackluster here because not playing artifact strategies and the card only gives you two tokens. As a one time four mana play it's not good. Temur Sabertooth is a way to bounce a creature and play it again, it's excellent with the many green creatures who have strong ETB abilities such as Fierce Empath , Reclamation Sage , Eternal Witness , Wood Elves , etc.

Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip and Fauna Shaman should make creatures the priority because these cards only interact with creatures and the interaction is very good since they're engines to get creatures. Priest of Titania is one of the best mana dorks in Commander, if you have her add her especially if adding other mana Elves.


Another strategy to experiment with Thromok is making your lands creatures since then they can be devoured. Living Lands , Life and Limb , Nissa, Vital Force , Sylvan Awakening . When devouring your lands you also wants ways to reanimate them: World Shaper , Ramunap Excavator , Splendid Reclamation .

Shaper has synergy with devour since he has to die to reanimate your lands. Living Lands curves into Thromok giving you devour fodder. The nice thing about Living Lands is your Forests are still lands, they can tap for mana, but they're also creatures who can be devoured.

Land reanimation is good with landfall and landfall is a part of the strategy of repeatable token creation. If you're choosing to add one drop mana dorks then Forests become more important than Mountains thus a higher number of Forests than Mountains.

Hey tiagompm,

Nice too hear that you like it. Heartless summonings is a great card but I love my Spore Frog way too much and it sadly kills this little guy.

For lanfall I would go with the usual landfall creatures like roil elemental, baloths, avenger and Hedron Crab . Throw in Crucible of Worlds , Ramunap Excavator , Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Oracle of Mul Daya , Mesmeric Orb and some fetchlands. Mill yourself to have always access to enough lands and get value of your 3-4 landdrops each turn. World Shaper should be a must and maybe Scapeshift is worth including aswell.

Gurt30_84 on Tatyova, Benthic Druid

I try to get Tatyova, Benthic Druid out as quick as I can. Sometimes turn 3, if I can get Simic Growth Chamber and a land and put out Azusa, Lost but Seeking on turn 2.

Psychic Corrosion let's me mill opponents pretty quick when I start drawing off of Beast Whisperer + Rashmi, Eternities Crafter + Guardian Project + Soul of the Harvest

Momir Vig, Simic Visionary helps with this too.

Scapeshift + Tishana, Voice of Thunder + Hydroid Krasis draw me a bunch of cards, through landfall and creatures, dealing damage for each card drawn, with Psychosis Crawler

If I use Scapeshift and sac X lands, aside from drawing X cards and gaining X life, I can always block with World Shaper and let it die, returning those X lands from the graveyard to the battlefield, drawing me X cards, and gaining X life.....

Murkfiend Liege + Wilderness Reclamation untaps my creatures and lands on my end step. That allows me to play cards on my opponents end step with Alchemist's Refuge .
