>Favorite enormous creature
You already posted him. Thromok is easily the most fun Timmy deck I've ever played. The first time I took it out with my playgroup, they didn't understand what Devour X meant, so they were extremely caught off guard when a 100/100 Thromok with haste hit the field. Now it's basically impossible for me to keep him in play for more than 1 turn cycle since Gruul doesn't have much in the way of counters or giving hexproof/indestructible.

Ehhhh, this logic doesn't work well because it's a multiplayer format. If two players are running similar decks, but one has cards that are all slightly more subpar, I will aim for the guy with the better cards first because I assume I will have better odds when it comes down to the 1v1 later on.

EDH -in some areas- is becoming a powerlevel shitfest, just like it has been since back when it wasn't called Commander. There is no 'global Commander metagame' to worry about. Some shops are still bashing Craw Wurms into each other, and some are full of Food Chain Tazri and Doomsday piles.

How will the meta resist the inclusion of cards like Command Tower, Commander's Sphere, Opal Palace, and Command Beacon?

The format is a victim of its own success.

>> No.51868095

>>51868066
Pretty easily, since Opal Palace sucks in any deck that's not winning via Commander damage and Sphere/Beacon aren't even close to auto-includes, and Command Tower is barely worth the slot in 2 color decks and utterly worthless in mono?

>> No.51868182

>>51868095

...but they're still printing cards specifially for the format. I fear that this practice will only increase because the market is viable. As more and more cards are printed for EDH, they will become more and more widely adopted. This will eventually lead to centralized standards and lots of automatic inclusions.

I hope that I'm dead wrong, by the way.

>> No.51868201

>>51868182
That only could possibly apply if the cards are powercreeped to become significant inclusions.
The only one you listed that is any sort of strict improvement is Command Tower. And thus multicolor decks love to have a single one of their basic lands replaced by a card. Hardly format damaging.

Command tower is a great card, a signature card for the format and an extremely affordable card that is available to everyone. These are all good things. The other cards dont see that much play outside of specific decks that can abuse them

>> No.51868208

>>51868182
Dude, where have you been? They've been printing cards 'specifically for' Commander since it was still called EDH. It's just that until they officially recognized it they couldn't really do cards that interact specifically with the RULES the way Command Tower and Opal Palace and shit do.

And I think they know better than to go apeshit with Command Tower level 'auto-includes'. I'm a big fan of things like Opal Palace, which interact well with certain commanders, but aren't an auto-include in every deck. And they caught a lot of flak for Derevi and Oloro, so I think they're gonna be more careful about things that interact with the Commnader rules in unfun ways.

>>51867818
"Bullying" (if that's what you want to call it) is the nature of a multiplayer format. Imminent threats are what people aim their removal at. While you could argue that some removal will always be better than others, you don't just have removal in the 99, you have to put ways to win in there too. People that use subpar threats in a group with a couple people running dangerous ones tend to get more ignored. Everyone will gun for a foodchain in tazri or prosh, people kill zur before he swings, etc. The best threats in the format are usually obnoxiously telegraphed, and people prepare for those and let lesser ones through. If I am holding up spot removal for foodchain that I think someone just tutored for, something derpy like mycoloth can get through.

The mycoloth player might also be keeping removal up for other big threats, and so on and so forth, but people don't have infinite pieces of removal. Usually you let the bad stuff through, and that gives it a better chance at sneaking a win.

That being said, metas can develop in wierd ways. I think what your saying is in an environment with no or little removal, just having the fastest 99 makes your deck the best, since you are all just trying to goldfish fast, and just one person alone can't police 3 other decks, so a meta shift is a group thing rather than one an individual can force.

>> No.51868352

>this tard bitching about power creep in EDH
No. Like people in this thread have been saying, unless you have a high power group, you build 2 or 3 "mean" decks, then never play them in favour of janky suboptimal bullshit, because Brago is literally never fun.

That being said, since the backlog of cards is so huge, unless you're rich, or dedicated, you will only have cards form when you thought cracking packs was cool, and whatever specific singles you've bought to flesh out your decks. This matters because it's logistically difficult to purchase a 100 card singleton deck online, particularly at a high price point, let alone understand how to build something not-terrible without getting blown out for months with a pile of incomprehensible garbage.

>>51870514
I can't run everything at the same time though, my deck is already spread fairly thin as it is. The problem is my control-centric strategy which fucks up a lot of people, in games with Meren and the likes he'll just mooch off my discard effects while I take the heat from everybody else for making them discard shit, and when it comes down to the two of us he'll have a better board state left due to being largely ignored for the whole game. I can't fight Meren alone since by the time I can Plow Under or whatever, he'll likely have a couple experience counters piled up and some shit in the grave ready to reanimate. There are only so many Bojuka Bogs/Tormod's Crypts/Scavenger Oozes/Necrogeneses/etc I can run without inconveniencing my own reanimator niche.

If Ruination wins the game I'm going to play it. Same for Shattering Spree. If there are cards that make you insta-scoop that's a weakness of your deck, not unfairness of any strategy

No anon, it is you who has weakness in your attitude. There's literally no reason to blow up the board just to make the game longer, or as some elaborate attempt to come back without answers.

In all honesty, nuking lands is pretty dickish in general, and if you really HAVE to do it, you should at least win quickly.

>> No.51873034

>>51872809
At least run altar of dementia and ashnod's, christ. Aggravated assault is godawful, and you absolutely have to run the rhage pits, kher keep and kessig wolf run.

If you run some more goblin toke makers than krenko can be amazing.

Also, use a bit more creatures that come in with tokens and kiki-jiki and panharmonicon will be great.

Sylvan library is better than mirri's guile and should be run instead if you can.

Also, I'd rather run dragon broodmother and dragonlair spider than verdant force.

Fecundity is a must.

If I were you, I'd go to gatherer and search for "token" in text in red, green and colorless.

That actually sounds pretty solid. I built an entire deck around nuking the board with planeswalkers out, and using their abilities as extra carddraw to offset the lack-of-hand from most of those effects.

It was... weird. Sometimes it blew people out, sometimes it didn't, sometimes it durdled forever then randomly popped off. Jori-En is fancy.

Consider carnage altar, evolutionary leaps, perilous forays (all the basics in your deck on the field on turn 6/7 isn't that uncommon), westvale abbey, sword of feast and famine, and all the green cards that draw cards equal to the greatest power on your boards (rishkar's expertise drawing me 49 cards off of thromok?

needs Ant Queen and Jade Mage
Personally I would cut Dragonlair Spider cause I think it's kinda slow, but if you like it won't hate
What the fuck are Kobolds of Kher Keep doing there
Mycoloth is blowout city but I understand a lot of anons here are fond of it, so just my two cents
Thelonite Hermit is a lot of mana for 5 creatures and it doesn't have built in sac for recursion like Deranged Hermit
Thopter Assembly is pretty slow
Would cut Overrun for either Triumph of the Horde (it's cheaper and hits harder) or Overwhelming Stampede (it scales higher)
needs Citunal Hierophants and/or Cryptolith Rites
IMO Awakening Zone is pretty slow, Nest Invader or any other Eldrazi Spawner would have a better return
Fists of Ironwood is pretty meh
Gratuitous Violence is winmore, 5 creatures makes Thromok hit for lethal, Violence only cuts it down to 4
You don't have a solid enough tribal base for Mana Echoes to work
I would suggest Wolfbriar Elemental, scales up and makes a fuckload of tokens
Chancellor of the Forge makes lots of tokens
you NEED fecundity and Goblin Assault, they are the most obscene enchantments for this strategy
Recommend Druids' Repository, gets you a bonkers amount of mana off of early game weenies attacking
if you have the dosh get Cloudstone Curio, instant value with every come into play effect

I think both are worth running in any deck that can run both

Gruul is simple. Follow these steps to enlightenment:

>You are a berserker, your life is only there to absorb damage until you blow something up and win, or stabilize and control the board. Use it with both wanton abandon and attrition when you're about to die.
>Blue magic is for puny mages, but every single person you play against will have some form of it. Be ready to deal with counterspells, creature removal, and all sorts of artifact/enchantment control fuckery.
>You need to go fast. Why? Well, it's just necessary. Play every card you possibly can as soon as you possibly can, because it's the law. Remember, you'll have tons of late game gas, but everyone will be ready, and next to no early game gas, when people are unpreparedd.

I'm not to sure about druid's repository. Late game you don't want to attack and lose half your shitty tokens so it's bad. And if you're going wide you want to win with 1 attack anyway.

It feels like a card that would only be good early game when your opponent's lack blockers, but at any other moment it's useless.

Also, I recommend leyline of lifeforce and heroic intervention.

What I'd recommend is just taking like, one copy of each token a deck can make, and keeping them WITH the deck in the box, rather than bringing every token that could ever matter. Just bring tokens for you.

Or just get a cheapy little 3 dollar UltraPro flipbox to bring your tokens and dice along with the Fat Pack box. It's not that much more to carry.
