Augur of Skulls Discussion

A cmc of is a little high for this deck, it might be a replacement for Augur of Skulls but i'm not sure yet.

In my opinion, Necrogenesis, Sanguine Bond, Marsh Flitter, Augur of Skulls are probably your worst cards. Also, Sakura-Tribe Elder is likely better than Farseek in your list. You could also replace Kodama's Reach and Cultivate with Wood Elves and Farhaven Elf.

A cheaper version of Megrim exists in Liliana's Caress, if your going the discard route I'd also suggest Waste Not and Shrieking Affliction are good choices. Along the same lines Wrench Mind is normally Mind Rot but cost less to cast, or use Augur of Skulls. lastly Victim of Night in preference to Terror as it's restrictions are rarely relevant.

Darth_Savage on Waste Not / Warped Devotion

Welcome, you might want to have a look at some 8-rack lists, your deck is different but of a similar style. Some specific thoughts -

  1. Replace Compelling Deterrence with Vapor Snag.

  2. Replace Despise with Duress.

  3. Forced Fruition is too slow and your not running enough discard to make it worthwhile, Killing Wave could be a handy sweeper.

  4. Warped Devotion only really triggers on Compelling Deterrence (most of the time Unsubstantiate is a counterspell) and it costs 3 Brain Pry could be discard or draw.

  5. Mind Slash is again too slow, I'd suggest Inquisition of Kozilek but Raven's Crime combos nicely with Dakmor Salvage.

  6. Abyssal Nocturnus might be better replaced with Nyxathid or Inverter of Truth.

  7. Extirpate, Quest for the Nihil Stone, Augur of Skulls and Dream Salvage are cards worth considering, you will need Ghost Quarter in your sideboard atleast.

Oloro_Magic on Rat discard (NEEDS HELP!!) copy

Okay so if your strategy is kind of neo-8 rack then we can work with this. Firstly, most of these rats wouldn't really work. I would keep the Augur of Skulls and maybe Marrow-Gnawer as the top end of the curve. I would then play between 6-10 Relentless Rats to round out the creatures. As for disruption and discard, you are on the right track with Waste Not and Shrieking Affliction, however if you want to keep it solely rats then Waste Not disrupts the flavor. Your removal package should consist of Victim of Night, Go for the Throat, or Smother, I would suggest 4 copies of one of these and then 2 Tragic Slip. 4 Wrench Mind, 4 Blackmail (or some other disruption spell like Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek), 4 Funeral Charm and then 4 Raven's Crime. As for your mana base I would drop it to 20 lands, your curve isn't too demanding. In those keep what you have but add 2-3 Dakmor Salvage for recursive discard using Raven's Crime.

You may want to check out Augur of Skulls, if played right you can create a kind of soft lock against your opponents where they have to discard two each turn.

BX = black deck with any other color as a splash
dies = any creature with such a trigger, either indirectly Augur of Skulls or directly Black Cat.

Cards that die easily are most easily abusable with Tortured Existence. Normal GB dredge decks do not have space for Tortured Existence, but even though you have to tailor your deck around it, there is a myriad of options to do so.

Its great to see a budget version of this deck.

If you're running Funeral Charm purely for removal I would drop it in favour of Tragic Slip as it pairs with Augur of Skulls quite well.

I would consider Grasp of Darkness over Victim of the night, but this is dependent on your meta, if many people are playing Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip in your meta or Gravecrawlers it could be worth it.

Sideboard tech -

Lost Legacy can deal with Ancient Grudge or any enchantment/artifact hate you see

Liliana's Specter helps your win condition and defends against flyers, can be handy against any deck running Lingering Souls
