Bad Moon Discussion

Suggestions for your mana base:

Remove: Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Warped Landscape, and Mind Stone. Add: Myriad Landscape, Cabal Coffers, High Market, and Charcoal Diamond.

Tower of Calamities depends a lot of mana to destroy only one creature. Try Black Market in its place.

Bad Moon, Eternal Thirst, and Lashwrithe are fine cards but your creatures are already so huge, I don't think you need them. I would just add more ramp instead: Ashnod's Altar (also serves as a sacrifice outlet), Caged Sun, and Expedition Map (to find Cabal Coffers).

34 lands is simply too few in my opinion so think about cutting Ascendant Evincar, Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, Nightmare, and Shadowborn Demon for 4 Swamps.


Suggestions for draw and card advantage:

It seems like a great win condition is the interaction between your Commander and Maralen of the Mornsong so I recommend more tutor and dark spells to get the combo out. Maybe switch out: Cremate, Sanguine Bond, Unholy Hunger, Abyssal Persecutor, Visions of Brutality, and Vile Requiem for Night's Whisper, Dark Petition, Behold the Beyond, Ambition's Cost, Beseech the Queen and Viscera Seer.


Suggestions for removal spells:

Several of your removal spells cost alot of mana. To the Slaughter, Reach of Shadows, In Garruk's Wake, Dregs of Sorrow, and Annihilate could be replaced with Diabolic Edict, Hero's Downfall, Killing Wave, Malicious Affliction, and Grave Pact.

Thanks Daedalus19876,

I've both Coat of Arms and Bad Moon in this deck, I like Bad Moon due to it making everything bigger. Honestly this being my only mono black deck, its most likely the only deck I'll use it in.

I have swapped:

  1. Ichor Rats --> Smallpox
  2. Septic Rats --> Innocent Blood
  3. Swamp --> Bone Splinters

Really wanting to swap Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth for Contamination, I didn't even know it existed!

Thanks for the suggestions!

I mean, there's not that much to say about a Relentless Rats deck, heh, especially when working under a budget. You have all of the "classical" pieces. A few brief comments, though:

Bad Moon seems underwhelming (perhaps try Coat of Arms instead).

Everglades and Leechridden Swamp ARE bad, play...anything instead (you could cut them altogether, as you're running more lands than I usually would).

Smallpox might work better than Geth's Verdict if you mostly play multiplayer.

Septic Rats doesn't seem like it fits here, because infect and normal damage tend to work at cross-purposes.

If you decide to put a bit more money into this, Contamination, Smokestack, and Necropotence are fantastic cards in a stax deck :)

The most powerful thing the zombie tribe has going for it are all the lords. Its what makes a few 2/2 tokens into a scary horde of death. There are ones that pump black creatures and ones that pump zombies to choose from. Some are cheaper than others but these are all around 3$ and under: Hall of Triumph, Bad Moon, Ascendant Evincar, Cemetery Reaper, Metallic Mimic, Paragon of Open Graves

In my experience with using this commander, having too many cards that just recycle dead creatures should be unnecessary with this deck. The whole point of using this commander is that it does that job pretty well already. I would just use a couple of the best.

Personally I found River Kelpie, Secrets of the Dead and Necromancer's Stockpile underwhelming and ineffective in actual gameplay. Almost anything that just normal draws cards is better than them. Graveborn Muse can be such a draw engine you have to kill it after a few turns but its amazing. I also love Curse of Shallow Graves its so great. And lastly, Conspiracy is nuts, it makes it so you can cast any creature from your graveyard and the commander gets pumped from zombie lords then too. Happy gathering!

Boza on Rogue Tribal, possible without a ...

  1. Focus on sidestepping. Rogues with any form of quality evasion are the best.
  2. You need some reach. Cheap reach is easily available in the form of Morsel Theft, which is the best card in Rogue tribal.
  3. To fix x/1 problem, simply add Bad Moon. There is a surprisingly low number of black creatures in modern.
  4. Earwig Squad is the best rogue creature. A single bannaret on the field and it is already a 5/3 for 2 mana. Additionally, it gives you a free win vs combo decks.
  5. You want hand disription and a lot of it to avoid mass removal. I recommend a full playset of 3-4 Tseize and 3-4 inquisition.

McDeity on Need help cutting cards please!

Cards that immediately jump out for having too low of an impact for most tables:

-Child of Night

-Pulse Tracker

-Vampire Outcasts

-Vampire Cutthroat

-Vengeful Vampire

-Archetype of Finality

-Bad Moon

-Cabal Ritual

-Dark Ritual

-Sorin's Thirst

-Tyrant's Choice

Some of these may just be in there because they were available, which is fine, but if you're looking to trim the fat, these are the ones that struck me as the worst inclusions.

Hey, I was wondering if you considered Illusionist's Bracers? They are probably the most cost effective way to utilize daxos imo. I was considering trying a bunch of anthems to speed things along but took my daxos apart before because it was just too slow to play in my group. I think Honor of the Pure, Bad Moon, Spear of Heliod and Dictate of Heliod are worth exploring though. They would really help considering daxos is extremely vulnerable at 2/2 and the quicker those tokens are worth 3 mana the better.

I won't suggest a ton of 20 dollar cards it's easy in daxos but if budget isn't an issue I'll throw a few out there: Bitterblossom, Replenish, Land Tax
