So What Makes Egon, God of Death so Good in Historic StOmPy?
- Starting on Llanowar Elves, Historic StOmPy is already optimized to hit three drops, so Egon, God of Death is 100% on-plan
- In fact, already welcoming Rotting Regisaur, StOmPy has an established black splash
- Between its size and deathtouch, Egon is a great mid-combat Collected Company hit
- Egon makes The Great Henge cheaper (of course)… But after, The Great Henge can keep Egon going. This is kind of weird since The Great Henge loves hand and Egon devours graveyard, but maybe you’ll be playing so many cards that the opponent will have to react or die anyway
- Its a nice new addition to a Pelt Collector’s evolution… Think Steel-Leaf Champion; Egon, God of Death; Rotting Regisaur for 5-6-7
- Finally, Egon is a table-snapping combo with Rhonas, the Indomitable. Or, “they always take seven”. Trample + deathtouch and all that.
Throne of Death (the opposite number to Egon, God of Death) is Part of the Range, too…
Typically, the mill doesn’t matter.
Sometimes you’ll hit your own Resilient Khenra.
Throne of Death is an excellent tool for grinding an opponent with a lot of one-for-one removal. Essentially, they kill your creatures; you draw a ton of extra cards… They run out waaaaay before you do.
And the rest of the emerging Historic Decks
We start on StOmPy… But hit a ton of other archetypes this week. So many burning questions will be answered, like:
- Is Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose in Historic Angels just a meme deck?
- Why does Mike hate about Historic Jund?
- Is the heretofore-unmentioned Captain Sisay deck just sweet, or possibly good?
- What makes Dreadhorde Arcanist the deck of the week?
- Which version of Bant Collected Company is more exciting? Angels or Party?
- Can there be even more in-depth discussions of even more decks? Spoiler: Yes.
