angry hermit mtg

Is that Eddie Vedder with his shirt off peaking out from behind the trees?! Oh wait, that druid has way too many tattoos to be Eddie Vedder and also Eddie isn’t a hermit nor is he angry.

Combo: Hermit Druid. The second part of the combo is untapping with Hermit Druid.

Being able to cast Demonic Tutor is pretty good, seeing as that card is banned in Legacy, restricted in Vintage, and worse versions of it have become cornerstones of various archetypes. But if your entire library goes into your graveyard… similar things happen. Krosan Reclamation becomes double-Tutor. You suddenly have all these Cabal Therapies to cast. And, better yet, they’re probably dead on the spot, which is somehow even better than casting Cabal Therapy (well, slightly better).

This graveyard deck is, of course, a Reanimator deck. Some games are fairly straightforward: you Exhume a big guy into the dead place, then bring it back to the land of the living where it kills them in short order. Boring. What the cool kids are doing with this deck, though, is returning Sutured Ghoul to play, exiling 20 or more power worth of creatures from the graveyard, and attacking with haste due to the Anger in the graveyard. Angry… Hermit.

In retrospect, this graveyard strategy just seems adorable. Awww, look, it has to jump through hoops to get creatures into play from the graveyard because Dread Return didn’t exist! How precious is that Krosan Colossus, the biggest creature available to it at the time? And don’t you just want to nuzzle the deck and coo to it that one day it’ll grow up big and strong with Dredge cards?

For those of you wondering why this is Angry Hermit pt 2, the original Angry Hermit had Deranged Hermit and burn spells. That is, it had none of the same cards. Great job with the deck names, guys.
