Hey thanks for the feedback! I gravitate towards spellslinger so this project was a little out of my comfort zone. That being said, Ghalta has been a blast to play. My meta is an odd one. We've been playing EDH for years and very early on we abolished commander damage. It does hamstring aggressive generals a bit but the payoff was games weren't dragging on unnecessarily. So cards like Berserk that are tailor made for one hit K.O.'s in other metas, fall a little short for me. It does put out an awful lot of damage though!
I tried to jam in as many creature answers as possible. I can tutor for Pathbreaker Ibex and Kamahl, Fist of Krosa but the overrun effects end games and I should slot in more. I left out Craterhoof Behemoth because I legit dislike the card. It's Boring! Been done a million times and the win feels generic as crap. As for Lightning Greaves, I still don't know. Ghalta gets countered and eats removal. It's the board wipes that sting the most.
I Do miss the vehicles. They got the chop with the mana dorks and I feel that may have been a mistake. They dodge sorcery speed wraths and often seem to be low priority for removal.
I started playing Magic during the Onslaught block so those "hidden" cards are news to me. They look like they'd fit in perfect with the deck.
I was unsure about Wayward Swordtooth. Turn 3 with extra lands in hand he seems great. I try not to overextend so I don't know how reliably I can ascend. It's worth a shot though.
You are right, Traverse the Outlands needs to be in this deck. Bow of Nylea was a card I wanted to test and felt it was underwhelming.
Living Plane, I love this card! It synergies well with the deck, making all my forests work double-time, and heavily discourages boardwipes. I know how dangerous it can be. Izzet Staticaster taught me that lesson the hard way... But I play it when I think it can be abused for a win.
Duplicant, I have no good reason for it not being in the deck.
And for Mosswort Bridge, the come into play tapped prevented me from running it here.. or anywhere. I might need to reconsider.
Lastly, after many MANY second places Ghalta brought home the gold! Surrak, the Hunt Caller gave haste to a Pathbreaker Ibex for a sleeper win. Overkill, maybe... But it got the job done!
I hope you have enjoyed Ghalta as much as I have!

Feb 18, 2018Pulling the trigger on a creatureless list. I wanted to include Daretti, Scrap Savant but with so few ways to protect him I see him dying very quickly. If I can jam some more token gens in here maybe I can squeeze him in.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Feb 16, 2018Another week of playtest and some more changes.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
The deck has yet to put up a win. A lot of horseshoes and hand grenades but no cigar. With any luck these changes will give me something to do early game or set up a K.O. when the time is right. I've kicked around fixing the mana curve, primarily 1 and 2 slots, but I worry that will water down the deck too much. The only 1 cmc creatures I think I'd add would be Brown Ouphe, Spore Frog, and Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter.
Feb 10, 2018So the mana dorks are getting the chop. They enable an early Ghalta but are terrible top decks. I feel the slots could be better used for utility at the cost of potential early tempo. With the dork loss, the vehicles are feel-bads for most of the deck.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
So here are some changes:
Hopefully these help with a few of Ghalta's problems... namely fliers... and add more value and threats.
Jan 22, 2018Taking a good long look at things coming down after Ghalta. A 12/12 trampler is plenty gas and the main finisher so I think the other cards should be dino support in form of affinity, draw and removal.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
A few changes:
- Deranged Hermit
- Precursor Golem
- Hydra Omnivore
- Cultivator's Caravan
- Bomat Bazaar Barge
- 4 Forest
- Lotus Cobra
- Farhaven Elf
- Ramunap Excavator
- Wood ELves
- Yavimaya Dryad
- Soul's Majesty
- Wooded Foothills
- Windswept Heath
- Verdant Catacombs
- Misty Rainforest
Including Lotus Cobra helps with the woefully represented 2 slot, ramps well with fetch lands and BFF's with Ramunap Excavator.
Jan 16, 2018Few deck changes, one from RIX one just fits.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Out Curse of Opulence In Cryptolith Fragment. I really wanted to like the curse but my creature count is low and ever dwindling and relying on your opponents to help you is not a good place to be. The new mana rock is colorless but it "burns" so it's welcome here.
Out Blood Moon In The Immortal Sun. BM usually completely hoses one player and mildly annoys the rest. It also shuts off Price of Progress so I can easily swap one hate card for another. IS draws, kills PW's, and discounts our spells.
Jan 12, 2018I think all red decks should run Pyrohemia but that's just me. A potential boardwipe and finisher all wrapped in one is too good to pass up. Even with limited enrage I think it would still pull it's weight. And combine with Silverclad Ferocidons gives all your red mana Annihilator 1 to each opponent.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Jan 9, 2018After several weeks of brewing and goldfishing I think the deck has finally come together. Ghalta feels like he's got plenty of teeth and the curve seems to be at a decent place. Time and testing will tell. I was on the fence about land ramp because the best ones are spells and not creatures. After I see what fits and what seems awkward I will try and fit in Wood Elves and friends.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Thank you for all the suggestions in the Let's Brew!

Jan 6, 2018I love these guys. With a Swiss army commander that also is an evasive finisher, you can jam the rest of the deck utility and removal spells. Your list needs a Seedborn Muse to abuse the crap outta those activated abilities!Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Dec 27, 2017imdehaven posted a message on Need a little (okay maybe ALOT) of help on my new EDH deckTariel will make her appearance late game so I'd run a bunch of creatures with edicts and such stapled to them. Shriekmaw, Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner, and Big Game Hunter come to mind. Discard creatures will pull some weight too, Mindslicer, Vindictive Lich, Hypnotic Specter,Scythe Specter and friends. Also one of my favorite edh cards Syphon Mind doubles down here.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Dec 27, 2017imdehaven posted a message on Need a little (okay maybe ALOT) of help on my new EDH deckHymn to Tourach, Thoughtseize, Distress, and Lay Bare the Heart could be useful. Maybe even Bottomless Pit and Necrogen Mists. I could see Diabolic Edict, Chainer's Edict and Geth's Verdict having a home here too.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
