DrukenReaps on Cards that activate to reanimate, ...

3 days ago

There are tons of things that could fit any of that. I'll point you to my own deck Should I Pretend This Or That? and this website

https://edhrec.com/commanders/mairsil-the-pretender

I'll just name 3 that I like for the listed categories.

reanimate- The Scarab God, Cauldron of Souls, Chainer, Dementia Master

kill- Nevinyrral's Disk, Shauku, Endbringer, Avatar of Woe

mill- Mirror-Mad Phantasm (self), Geth, Lord of the Vault, Keening Stone

gain control- Memnarch, Empress Galina, Olivia Voldaren

I'd argue that Gonti, Lord of Luxury fits better for jack - the whole ability to use an enemy's deck against them, along with deathtouch, and a hint of class.

other options that I thought about for him were Dire Fleet Ravager or Nekrataal. (although the ravager fits well for Hatchet face too, or Nekrataal for murderrat)

For Crawler, there needs to be some built in regenerate - Slith Bloodletter and Mortivore come to mind, but if you wanted to keep it legendary, Korlash, Heir to Blackblade works too. Masticore fits more for the acid spitting aspect, but not so much for the growth / adaptation.

Burnscar feels like Jaya Ballard, Task Mage

Darkling Stalker could go for alot of the lesser members, like night hag or Nyx. Avatar of Woe wise feels like it belongs in the deck somehow.

Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni as a non-general version of bonesaw?

just tossing out ideas, seeing if anything sticks. Not finished with worm, only around chap 27 at the time of posting this. glad to see another story-based deck around!

Hi shub, I was glad to find your deck since I couldn't find others that were focusing on Deceiver of Form. Since I've been finetuning my own Deceiver of Form deck, I do have some thoughts and suggestions.

Pathbreaker Ibex is indeed one of the most powerful things you can do with the Deceiver, since Biovisionary requires blue.

Mirror Gallery opens up a lot of avenues for abuse. For instance, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is even better than Angrath's Marauders since she reduces damage taken and also flies over blockers.

A token strategy would create more bodies to be transformed by Deceiver of Form. Awakening Zone and From Beyond ramp you while also providing bodies. Utvara Hellkite squares the number of creatures you have by spawning dragons.

Conduit of Ruin searches for the Deceiver, and also reduces the cost of your creatures.

Lord of the Void is good on its own and ridiculous if you have an army of them.

Savage Ventmaw gives so much mana if you attack with a few of them.

Avatar of Woe goes well with the Deceiver and doesn't wipe your army unlike Elesh Norn without Mirror Gallery.

Gilt-Leaf Archdruid can steal all the lands from a player if you have at least 7 creatures, although you aren't playing other druids to benefit from it without the Deceiver.

Scroll Rack is really good for setting up creatures on the top of your library.

Anyway, it's great to see a Deceiver of Form deck. Do check out my deck too and let me know what you think!

Hey K34, thanks for the suggestion!

While Avatar of Woe is definitely a powerfull card Ravenous Chupacabra has the advantage of having its effect being an ETB, therefore synergising better with Meren of Clan Nel Toth.

Despite not agreeing with your assessment, I will try to find a slot for your suggestion as it is a pretty interesting one.

Avatar of Woe seems like it would be considerably better than Ravenous Chupacabra in my opinion. But that might go against your theory of not playing to make everyone else feel like they need to update their decks.

Definitely don't need 40 lands. If you want to still play safe, you can drop to 38. if you want to be a little risky, I think it can work with 35. A lot of good cards, but just because they are good doesn't mean they belong. Avatar of Woe, Trophy Mage doesn't fit to the whole theme. Myr Retriever, Heartless Summoning don't seem needed. Yes, you are milling yourself too, but none of your artifacts are necessary for they deck to function. Your curve is low too, so there isn't a big need for ramp more than the staple rocks. Then, you need to think about lifespan. Creatures die most, then artifacts, enchantments, lands. Next, How are you going to go about playing the deck. It doesn't seem like you will be attacking a lot, if at all. Raiders' Wake fits, but you already have a lot of cards that do the same thing and then some. you wont be triggering Raid a lot if it all.

Compare the CMC to the effect to figure out what else you'd want to take out.

Back to mana... oh boy. Opal Palace is really only good in Voltron with few exceptions. Path of Ancestry works best in tribal, it's pretty much Crumbling Necropolis in here. I think you can live without Exotic Orchard. I didn't see any theft cards in here that require you pay for the card. Mystifying Maze is a worse version on Maze of Ith especially if used on a card with an ETB. You have way to many lands that come in tapped. This deck can be fast, but tapped lands slow you down a lot more than you realize. They aren't worth it unless they have a crazy effect.

Academy Ruins does what Myr Retriever does. Drownyard Temple comes back from the grave. Mikokoro, Center of the Sea more card draw. Mirrorpool might be nice. Cabal Coffers and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is a staple combo. Thespian's Stage and Vesuva copy lands; something to keep in mind. Throne of the High City might work if you keep yourself protected. Reflecting Pool is too good not to have

Speaking of protection. I think you should really add Propaganda. you might like Primal Amulet  Flip. Find room for Wheel of Fortune, Magus of the Jar.

You'll need to find a balance of single card discard and mass discard. Too much mass discard will wiff, but too much single card discard will be too slow.

The most noticeable problems are not enough lands, and not enough board wipes. For more sweepers, I'd consider Boompile, In Garruk's Wake or Necromantic Selection, Kederekt Leviathan or Bearer of the Heavens to unearth, Keldon Firebombers if you're meta has lots of green or flip lands, and definitely Cyclonic Rift. Good call on Magus of the Wheel and Teferi's Veil.

Definitely put in Conjurer's Closet, as it can save your unearth'd creatures! There's also Nephalia Smuggler and Vodalian Illusionist, etc.

Maybe consider Talisman of Dominance/ Indulgence or Wharf Infiltrator for lower curve. I'd also add more removal because you seem to like death syngergies in this deck. Some initial ideas are Terminate or Dismember to stay on curve, Ruthless Disposal to discard good creatures, Royal Assassin/ Avatar of Woe/ Stronghold Assassin, etc.

Check this out too, especially the Blink section.

Hope this helps! If you need more help, I'm always here

I recommend cards like Terastodon because once in your grave, they can do so much damage. Maybe also Avatar of Woe.
