Cards Like Grand Cenobite?

Commander Deck Help forum

Posted on May 8, 2023, 4:37 p.m. by ImNora


I'm building a The Prismatic Bridge  Flip deck to cheat out creatures. I'm trying to pack the deck with creatures that boost the power/toughness of my other creatures. I've found things like Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Pathbreaker Ibex, Blossoming Bogbeast, Kamahl, Heart of Krosa, Zopandrel, Hunger Dominus, Thunderfoot Baloth, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Fiendish Duo, Angrath's Marauders and Necropolis Regent. I also have Blade Historian and Blast-Furnace Hellkite for double strike since it effectively boosts power.

What cards can you think of that I missed?

Thanks, Nora

You could also consider using the Archetype cycle, such as Archetype of Courage or Archetype of Aggression.

There's a lot of ways to go about these kind of buff effects, so a part of what matters is you budgetary constraints.

If your land base can produce enough forests, that is

Surrak and Goreclaw could be great (for the haste), and Syr Faren, the Hengehammer might be fun, depending on how the effects get stacked. Faren is a booster for just one creature but there could be some utility in picking a specific creature, depending on the specific scenario, for that additional boost.

I would recommend Fiery Emancipation, City on Fire, or maybe Kalonian Hydra if you want to focus on +1/+1 counters.

Moraug, Fury of Akoum and Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma both pump a little. End-Raze Forerunners are a walking, oinking Overrun. Thunderfoot Baloth seems to be a perfect match here.

Drana, Liberator of Malakir: Note the first strike will give most of your creatures a counter before they deal damage.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed: Most of your buffs are nonhuman anyway.

Archangel of Thune: Delayed buff but consistent.

Ulvenwald Oddity  Flip and Mirari's Wake seem like they could fit.

Fun side note: when I read the name of this thread I initially thought you were looking for other creatures that looked like cenobites, and got all excited about having a reason to bring up Abomination, which always seemed like such a cool card back in the day. Then I read the post and had to scramble for an answer ;p Let is know how the deck goes!!

Thanks for the recommendations y'all! I've been working on the deck and figured I'd link it here so everyone can see it if they want to.
