Trying to build a deck around Throne of the God-Pharoah. Here's the easy picks. Thought I'd start here and then work on a more difficult build...maybe Esper based. For now, Saskia has all the right colors and provides some good utility herself.

This deck, makes dudes, taps them for stuff and hopefully has Throne out. I tried make it work as a generic token deck too incase I don't draw Throne or it gets removed.

Speaking of thrones, just reminded me of Dragon Throne of Tarkir which could give you another Plan B: make your stuff bigger. That's desirable of you don't have Bolas's Throne out. If you do have the Throne out, it lets you (a) tap one creature, (b) help the rest survive combat (if they must attack to become tapped).

Any reason this is Saskia instead of Tana, the Bloodsower and one of the WB partners?

I think you may take a lot of damage having your board tapped out at the end of your turn. Quest for Renewal and Masako the Humorless might help.

Cultivator's Caravan is a mana rock that can tap your whole board.

Buried Ruin is a good land to include. Trading Post makes tokens and recurs Throne as well.

Buried Ruin is in the pile, just didn't list it. Good call.

Those are great suggestions!!

I thought about doing a Partner pair but I like the simplicity of Saskia. Your thopters + whir of invention suggestion in the other thread already has me second guessing this build :P This may turn into Esper sooner rather than later

Ok, had a couple fun moments with this deck.

Nacatl War-Pride with Iroas, God of Victory is pretty funny. Especially when another player has 10 vampires on his side. Followed that 33 damage up with 11 from Throne of the God-Pharaoh

Last game I had 11 soldiers from Assemble the Legion and Anointed Procession. Also had Glare of Subdual and Throne of the God-Pharaoh. Cast Army of the Damned for 26 tokens. Domed the table for 37 at EOT.

Fun deck so far. Lots to do with all the tapping abilities. May add in either Vedalkan Orrery or Winding Canyons

Lots of love for Earthcraft :) I just don't have one any more. Traded it for a Gaea's Cradle years ago. Haven't felt its been worth 30 bucks to pick another one up.

Yikes, I bet that trade feels pretty sweet right about now.

Honestly, I think the best shell for Throne is Kamahl, Fist of Krosa. Getting to set up those mad Harvest Seasons, and hate out Wraths with LD is a pretty funny building angle. It effectively turns Throne into an end-of-turn fireball- and the deck already wants to be filled out with passive protection.

Hope this atleast gives you some ideas for direction

Mono G would be hard to make this deck work. Red and White I've found are what really make it tick. However, Kamahl is one of my favorite creatures and my most favorite finisher is Kamahl, bunch of mana, and Rude Awakening.

I think you missed the more important suggestion there - where is the Harvest Season?

So I did!!

-Azusa (I need her for another deck)
+Harvest Season

Glare of Subdual continues to be the disgusting all star of this deck. I may need to add Replenish
