Might take a second to realize it, but Ghave this is amazing with Cauldron of Souls.

Really fun commander that makes for crazy interactions. Great for anyone that likes strategic combat planning.

@StygianEffigy While yes bleed decks can HURT this deck, it can't STOP it if you built your deck right. You mentioned commander, if you're not playing ANY removal in your deck, you're doing it wrong. If a bloodseeker is what kills you, either you just had really unlucky draws, or you need to take the deck apart and start over.

Scute Mobs into Saproling.

Actually, you can't. Summoning sickness. Life and Limb makes the saprolings into forests, yes, but they're still creatures, they still suffer from summoning sickness.

I'll admit, I did not like Ghave at first. I thought he was so much inferior to Karador that it wasn't even funny. Then I realized that with the way I have my deck set up, I need instant-speed sac engines, and Ghave actually delivers, AND provides some form of pump at the same time, which means some of my other creatures can hit harder. Ghave, alongside the other five sac'ers, allows my deck to get more creatures into my grave for the recursion effects to properly go off (as well as allow last-minute sac's to get Karador out for cheap on my turn).

1. Parallel Lives.
2. Sigil Captain.
3. Leyline of the Meek.

Ghave is crazy with these cards. I managed to churn out massive quantities of saprolings against my brother's Doran Voltron deck. Never have I seen my brother be so frustrated with Sigil Captain.

With Strangleroot Geist from Dark Ascension, Ghave becomes 2: Get a 1/1 Saproling and put a +1/+1 counter on target creature.

With Savra, Queen of the Golgari out, add "Gain 2 life" to that repeatable cycle.

Add sorin to his EDH

Pretty much my favorite commander. Heres some tech i've been running with great success in our casual multiplayer games. INN and DA have brought many goodies for ghave. Mentor of the Meek, Mikaeus, the Lunarch and insane lands like Gavony Township, Grim Backwoodsand even Vault of the Archangel. Rings of Brighthearth works with ghave but is mostly so good with other stuff you want to run anyway like any Ajani, Elspeth or Garruk you can fit in. Also stuff like Contagion Engine and those land abilities are pretty cool to copy.

This guy just replaced Savra, Queen of the Golgari as the general of my Saproling EDH deck. (Sorry, I refuse to call it Commander.) This allowed me to splash in white. All you naysayers seem to forget how EASY it is to get a stupid amount of +1/+1 counters on your creatures, Mycoloth not withstanding. Juniper Order Ranger and the ultimate powerhouse, Primordial Hydra. The Hydra will start making more +1/+1 counters per turn than you are capable of using!

Also, since I was able to add in Rhys the Redeemed, the shenanigans have just gotten even worse. As long as you have a reliable untap ability, like Patron of the Orochi and Seedborn Muse, Rhys can double your saprolings on EVERY PLAYER'S TURN. With Juniper Order Ranger in play, as well as an excellent mana source like Gaea's Cradle, you can m... (see all)
