My new life goal, having read the comments here, is to own and play a Thromok EDH deck.

When I first read this I though it said Throbbing... I suspect you can fill in the rest.

simplest, and most brutal answer to this creature? Spike Cannibal

@EtherBunny41 Even better with Doubling Season or Primal Vigor -- the power and toughness get doubled once when the counters become tokens, and again when the tokens are devoured. So if you start by devouring 5 creatures, you get a 50/50 Thromok, then 100 tokens, then a 20,000/20,000 Thromok, then 40,000 tokens, then a 3,200,000,000/3,200,000,000 Thromok.

The formula for Thromok's power and toughness, if he starts by devouring X creatures and is being summoned for the Nth time, is X^2^N. Each Doubling Season or Primal Vigor multiplies it by 2^(2^N - 1).

Still won't grow as fast as the combos that involve cloning Doubling Season or Primal Vigor, which can give you on the order of 2↑↑N tokens.

A really neat card, but not very good. The only time I have ever seen it win a game is when used as a psuedo-burn-spell by putting out a pandemonium the turn before. That was cool, but every other time he has been cast by one of my friends, he has been killed. This is one instance where the 'dies to removal' argument is actually valid, because you are giving up a lot of card advantage here for a creature without haste.

This guy is so reliant on board position he becomes almost unplayable. You need to have creatures to sac to him (Absolute minimum 3, hopefully at least 5.) A way to protect him or take advantage of him. (Fires of Yavimaya, Pandemonium, Asceticism) and if you want to attack, a way to grant him trample. (Rancor seems thematic) He is cool, but so risky that even my Timmiest of friends are usually content just to have a 100/100 creature and don't anticipate getting muc... (see all)

Easy to work with if you know what you're doing.
Awesome creature.
