Abyssal Persecutor Discussion

yeah, maybe bring the Fatal Push and Serum Visions down to one of's, or put the Abyssal Persecutor down to a 2 of.

Thank you, TuckerMTG. I figured it didn't work like that, but I wanted to make sure. Winning a game due to stalling it, without Platinum Angel or Abyssal Persecutor would be fun.

Thanx for your comment, CaptSillva.

I'm well aware of Darkest Hour power level in Teysa, but I am trying to keep this deck from going infinite (due to my playgroup, and the ammount of my other combo-EDH decks) and leave it more creature-based (occasionally Ashnod's Altar + Nim Deathmantle do combo off, but it's not the main win con.)

Divinity of Pride, Blood Baron of Vizkopa, Serra Ascendant - those are nice fatties, probably will replace Abyssal Persecutor with one of those.

Ranger of Eos is great suggestion. I wonder how i missed that one. Will try to get him ASAP.

Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant - they are nice human tribal cards, but I do not think they are what I am looking for. Champion of the Parish is too slow for a fatty, and Thalia's Lieutenant has some dissynergy with Skullclamp

AHighlyVisibleNinja, nice observation, I never noticed that! At the same time, I think the point of the card's name is that it's supposed to be ironic.

Exteez, I will definitely add it to the sideboard for game 2 against matchups that might board in Surgical Extraction, though I already have Sky Swallower as a backup. Immortal Coil also seems like a nice card to work around, but I think it might just be too much to set up and Demonic Pact is simply better. Furthermore, being a casual deck, I like Abyssal Persecutor better for flavor. I will definitely keep it in mind though, thanks for the suggestions!

rottenoysters, I'm not sure I follow what you are saying. Sky Swallower is not supposed to have any sort of interaction with Harmless Offering. It is in fact supposed to act as an alternate Harmless Offering on a stick (a big flying one at that).

Abyssal Persecutor is in the SB already, but I haven't found that much use for it. I side it against grindy opponents if I need more time to pull off my main combo against control. Bazaar Trader could be awesome if I decide to widen the donation pool with Bronze Bombshell or Rust Elemental! Thanks man.

I understand budget concerns, totally. I would still try to keep an eye out for the extra copies of Abyssal Persecutor. It should be like $2, so you could pick them up over time or maybe trade into them. It'd be worth it. A single copy of Corrupt is also an option (also a budget card), as I have won many games off a late game casting of it. It's great going "Corrupt for leathal" and having your opponent go "Wait... What?". Lol. Also, Phyrexian Arena is a really really strong card, it's not exactly budget ($3-$4), but it should be on your radar when looking at trades binders. And you're welcome, Mono-black is my favorite build, so I'm glad to help. And, if corrupt doesn't seem like your thing, Gray Merchant of Asphodel can do a similar effect by taking advantage of your black devotion.
