Golgari Commander Help

6 posts in this topic

All I can say is holy crap! It's been over a year since i was last here, i guess i forgot about it sine i started working way back then. but i want help with my golgari commander deck. i think it could use some better cards and i'd like a combo play or two in there as well. a combo to win play, that is. are there any good plays i could have with my deck as it currently is though? i mean, the whole point is to call jarad out, use bonehoard, and then use jarad to sacrifice the germ token and kill everyone at the same time. but for that there needs to be creatures in everyone's graveyards, and that's what i'm having troubles with. this deck just seems a bit slow and unable to generate any kind of advantage in playing against 3+ people.

Jarad likes to eat big creatures. Check out Herd Gnarr. There's lots of ways of making big numbers of saprolings. Verdeloth the Ancient is a favorite. Verdeloth with a big kicker can make Herd Gnarr fairly huge. Ashnod's Altar can make big mana for the kicker cost, plus bonus damage if you've got Slimefoot out. Not a huge pricetag for any of them. 

Well, I guess Ashnod's Altar's price has creeped up since I last checked.

Primalcrux can also get huge pretty quick. Especially with it's best friend Khalni Hydra.

thank you for your suggestions guys. something i was never good at is choosing what to take out of the deck to make way for other card ideas.

Well, you identified one card to trim on your own. Kothophed is dangerous. Downright unplayable in my groups. Too many crazy token decks.

yes, he is dangerous but he's also really fun too so i don't want to remove him from the deck.
