Archfiend of Depravity Discussion

Tree of Perdition's life exchanging effect causes the victim to gain or lose life to the total, and will trigger Archfiend of Depravity and Wound Reflection.

Archfiend of Depravity and Wound Reflection trigger EACH end step and do not care why an opponent lost life or if they gained life later in the turn. Ex. You have either card out. Bob plays a shockland untapped and attacks George for 5 damage with lifelink. On Bob's endstep he loses 2 life, and George loses 5 life.

Archfiend of Depravity and Wound Reflection will also count the loss of life that one causes to the amount the other causes if both are out. Ex: 5 damage, 1st trigger 5 life, 2nd trigger 10 life.

Black probably has the best cards that punish opponents if you want to at least embrace the theme and have cards along those lines I would suggest a black, red, blue color wheel because you can also do things like Demonic Pact + Harmless Offering or Donate and there is the newer card Captive Audience to slap on opponents then add things like Tree of Perdition + Triskaidekaphobia some ideas to add to any deck to fit the theme and you can go grixis staxs to further control the board examples War's Toll , Frozen AEther , Archfiend of Depravity , Crawlspace , if you want to really make them cry Ward of Bones

Usually you want 37-40 ~ in a commander deck (depending on avrage CMC, mana rocks and so on). Im by no means a shadowborn player, but I think 10 are to few. And you most definitive want some more demons like Rune-Scarred Demon , Archfiend of Depravity , Archfiend of Despair , Demonlord Belzenlok and Harvester of Souls to name a few. I also recomend Edgewalker to make your apostels free.

Looking forward to see your deck take form! Welcome to commander!

Would be fun backed with Indulgent Tormentor to force opponents to burn through their creature base. Add Archfiend of Depravity for extra oppression.

  • Timmy, this is a Standard thread...

Yeah? Just following DragonSliver09's lead ;)

Alright. After looking through, I have a few ideas. 1. Instead of stealing other’s artifacts for 4+ mana, perhaps running things like Abrade , Artifact Possession , Copy Artifact , or Bedevil to either create copies of other’s artifacts, or destroy them with more options than what you currently have.

  1. Mana fixing Drowned Catacomb , Dragonskull Summit , Watery Grave , Command Tower , Arcane Signet , Grixis Obelisk, and Grixis Panorama would all help in your ability to cast Bolas on curve.
  2. Holding off the other players.

Wrath of God , Vraska's Contempt , Bontu's Last Reckoning , Cast Down , and Cavalier of Night all keep the board clear while you set up for the victory!

  1. Creatures. Zahid, Djinn of the Lamp , Wall of Stone , Norritt , Chainwhip Cyclops , and Vraska's Finisher are all bad cards. I suggest cards like Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip, Sheoldred, Whispering One , Notion Thief , Archfiend of Depravity , and Massacre Girl could be more beneficial than the current ones you have.

You said you want to make room for Teferi, Temporal Archmage ? I'd say cut Tamiyo, Collector of Tales . She doesn't appear to have much value in your deck as it currently stands. In order for you to achieve maximum value from her, you'd need to both have her out and be able to reliably manipulate the top of your deck each turn. Then, even if you can do this, because this is EDH you will only ever at most get a single card in your hand, and put three into your graveyard. Considering your deck is not built for graveyard synergy, I'd say she's easily the weakest link here. As for her static ability, not many cards out there force opponents to sacrifice permanents they own. They do exist, but by far it is one of the less relevant options of removal. Even those who do exist, it usually then befalls upon the opponent's choice, which means they will likely sacrifice their weakest permanents first. For example, obviously a player will keep their strongest two creatures when Archfiend of Depravity goes off, or they will sacrifice a token creature if able to Mogis, God of Slaughter . Likewise, Crackling Doom gives them the option to choose if they have two or more creatures that meet the condition, and even if they don't this only removes a single threat from their board.

So I think I can pretty confidently say you can forgo Tamiyo and run just fine :)

Magus of the Abyss / Defiler of Souls / Reaper from the Abyss and the under-used Archfiend of Depravity will do pretty well at keeping folks down

Captivating Vampire would be disgustingly awesome. Also Archfiend of Depravity would be cool, though I may prefer Indulgent Tormentor for the engine.
