Abyssal Persecutor Discussion
1 week ago
@ticked-off-squirrel, perhaps. It's a good card but it's 3 mana and only reduces the cost of my creatures. The life gain and drain is good but doesn't add to the strength of the deck. Compare it to Jet Medallion for 2 mana reduces all my black spells, I can play it on turn 2 and turn 3 play Crypt Ghast or Abyssal Persecutor.

Abyssal Persecutor says "you can't win the game..." Nothing can cause you to win the game while you have Abyssal Persecutor in play. This is similar to controlling an effect that says "you cannot gain life" and playing a card that says "you gain X life."
From Abyssal Persecutor's Gatherer rulings:
No game effect can cause you to win the game or cause any opponent to lose the game while you control Abyssal Persecutor. It doesn’t matter whether an opponent has 0 or less life, an opponent is forced to draw a card while their library is empty, an opponent has ten or more poison counters, an opponent is dealt combat damage by Phage the Untouchable, you control Felidar Sovereign and have 40 or more life, or so on. You keep playing.

Abyssal Persecutor :"you cant win the game and your opponents cant lose the game" Liliana's Contract :"At the beginning of your upkeep, if you control four or more demons with different names, you win the game" What would happen in the case of having Abyssal Persecutor and 3 other demons out? I would assume the Abyssal Persecutor would override Liliana's Contract and prevent you from winning but im not exactly sure. How do you determine which has "priority" in this case?

Thanks again lagotripha. I definitely agree that skeins needs to be added and I went with Abyssal Persecutor as my sangromancer replacement. I'm concerned that I don't have enough 1 drops though. What should I remove for a couple more of those? Or do I even need them?

My #1 favorite set in the entire history of Magic was the Tarkir block, specifically Dragons of Tarkir. I know most people went for Khans of Tarkir because of the fetch lands, but I'm not a very competitive player. I like flavorful decks, big flashy cards, stupid combos, and awesome finishers.
- Your typical Timmy / Johnny Modern player
So when I saw the plethora of Dragons in M19 my inner fanboy freaked!
I currently have like four or five Dragon decks. Gruul, Jund, Rakdos, Azorius (That one sucks but is fun to play), and I had an older Jund deck that I quit using because it was making problems with my group.
I gotta say, Sarkhan, Fireblood pairs especially nicely with Sarkhan Vol. Their +1 abilities line up rather nicely. Draw a card and give your bois +1/+1 and Haste or pop out a Dragon and give it +1/+1 and Haste. Very nice.
Sure, Fireblood is two turns slower to ult but you also now have 8 cards in your deck that do the same thing (If you so choose). Dragon decks centered around Scourge of Valkas and Dragon Tempest will have far too much fun with these.
Which leads me into Sarkhan, Dragonsoul. I currently have a Mono-red Dragon deck that actually ramps via Dragonlord's Servant and Infernal Plunge. I'm definitely able to make room for at least two of these guys, which is going to be awesome.
Stepping aside from Dragons now, I'm also super excited for Apex of Power as I routinely run decks that can very easily achieve those levels of mana, though I may just run a single copy in a deck as Genesis Wave is strictly better. For 10 mana, you get X=8 and they hit the battlefield. Though what's interesting is if you cast an Apex of Power, you can filter the top seven and Genesis Wave the next 8. I'm not 100% certain if this is a good idea or not, but it could be worth looking at.
I'd also like to say that I'm super excited for the new Gruulfriends deck I can build around Vivien Reid and Domri Rade. If you get both emblems, which should be rather easy to do in Gruul, everybody now gets the following:
- +2/+2, Indestructible, Double Strike, Haste, Hexproof, Trample, and Vigilance. That's a TON of anthem!
Also, can I just say that Resplendent Angel alongside Nyx-Fleece Ram + Inventors' Fair + Venser's Journal + Fountain of Renewal + Radiant Fountain is dangerously potent when you consider Angelic Accord and Archangel of Thune are a thing.
It's also nice to finally have a new Hydra addition that doesn't completely suck.
I also run a Mono-Black Demon Tribal centered around the following:
- Soulcage Fiend
- Abyssal Persecutor
- Master of the Feast
- Archfiend of Depravity
- Desecration Demon
- Indulgent Tormentor
So, naturally Liliana's Contract is a nice addition. Worth noting: Grixis Arcane Contract will be fun.

Those are all good creatures, Abyssal Persecutor being the best. I've used them all in various decks quite a bit.
I was thinking about cutting a land for a 1 of. I was thinking Collective Brutality or a creature. I was looking for something that plays a little nicer with Bob.*
*Besides Nyxathid because I have another deck that is fairly similar that is pretty much just Bob & Nyxathid

Phyrexian Obliterator Vampire Nighthawk Gatekeeper of Malakir Desecration Demon Abyssal Persecutor just some quality creatures to consider. You look too invested in creature removal. That is where I would cut at first.
