Abyssal Persecutor Discussion

DrukenReaps on Need help with this lost ...

I dunno if Rayenous will make it viewable or even has the list still so I would start by looking over the following stolen from that forum and build from there.

KrazyCaley said "Rayenous has it.

There are multiple ways to do it, but they all involve variations on the same basic pattern.

Step 1 - Mindslaver + Academy Ruins lock.

Step 2 - Prevent your opponent and preferably also yourself from losing (since this procedure will take a long time) through the use of Platinum Angel or Abyssal Persecutor .

Step 3 - Donate a mechanism to your opponent whereby they can put cards they own into their deck. Rayenous used Research on an Isochron Scepter . My version of this deck used Death Wish (which works since our opponent can't lose the game while we have the Angel/Persecutor out), but Research is faster. Repeatedly have them add in cards until their entire collection is in the deck. Note that you will probably also need to Donate something that generates any color mana to your opponent as well.

Step 4 - Use Amulet of Quoz to convert their entire deck, which is now their entire collection, into their ante (true, we'd have to be playing with ante rules, which are now gone, but hey, that's the fun).

Step 5 - Blow up whatever thing you set up to prevent your opponent from losing.

Step 6 - Enjoy all your friend's Magic cards."

Now I don't foresee anyone agreeing to ante so you might leave that part out... Also a lot of people even in casual games will say that only a side board can be added in with wish cards and commander doesn't use a side board. So most people play with the idea that if you use wish cards you need to let them know ahead of time.

At this point I would be looking at a commander. Maybe? Could add in another color if you want... Parhaps use Lazav, Dimir Mastermind and mill their crazy sized library to the grave? Actually a better option might be The Mimeoplasm for the commander. Cards like Villainous Wealth would be great.

McWafflez on i have no clue what im doing with kaalia

Swift Warkite and Abyssal Persecutor are easy cuts as they have little synergy with Kaalia

i dont think you can friend others in this site.

since is a mono black you would want to add a set of Dark Ritual for ramp and be able to play something like Geralf's Messenger / Ammit Eternal turn 1 or turn 2 Phyrexian Obliterator / Abyssal Persecutor / Desecration Demon .

you should add a set of discards spells like Duress / Thoughtseize / Hymn to Tourach its a really nice turn 2 play, for draw spell either Sign in Blood or Night's Whisper are good.

for board wipes Toxic Deluge or Damnation 1-2 is okay plus the Doom Blade / Fatal Push and maybe Chainer's Edict / Geth's Verdict .

i will add to the suggested cards the budget ones.

I personally feel as if the deck is too dependent on the opponent's strategy to win: it only looks good if the opponent is playing creatures. Most decks that rely on these strategies use internal mechanics to manipulate their opponents' boards (such as Forbidden Orchard and Oath of Druids ). The deck will be amazing against creature decks without shroud but is unfavorable against most other matchups as you would end up with a handful of spells with no targets. Instead of focusing so hard on creature removal I'd add in more versatile cards like Collective Brutality .

You could consider Consuming Vapors , Abyssal Persecutor , and Hunted Horror . Sacrifice decks often go nicely with a dab of suicide.

And if your budget were unlimited I'd add in Phyrexian Obliterator and a dash of Gray Merchant of Asphodel as a kill-card. (You're not always going to be facing up against creatures but you're always going to be dealing with life total...barring Phyrexian Unlife )

DrukenReaps on Fractured identity combo time

I'm not so sure about the Overwhelming Splendor . It works if every player targets someone different but if you played it and then you fracture it. Well the fractured copies are just going to point right back at you more often than not...

Otherwise I do like what I'm seeing.

Abyssal Persecutor could work.

I've seen better luck with Rakdos, Lord of Riots and cards with high converted mana costs that were primarily colorless (like Artisan of Kozilek or Exsanguinate). love the building theme though.

odd little demonic combo for you consider - Abyssal Persecutor + Assault Suit

Nice! I have a deck that is a bit like this, but with a few differences, because my budget is lower. As I look over your list, the first thing that jumps out at me is that you have a lot of targeted removal. You have 18 targeted removal spells in the deck. I think it might be best to slot in some discard somewhere in there in place of a few Thoughtseize or, if you’re on a budget, Inquisition of Kozilek. I mean, I know you would want more than normal because of Abyssal Persecutor, I have found discard to be very helpful in matchups like Bogles and games with Ensnaring Bridge, so I can take out those cards early. Hope that helps!
