Baleful Ammit Discussion
1 month ago
Keeping the demon subtheme I would suggest: Ammit Eternal, Baleful Ammit, Archfiend of Despair, Demon of Catastrophes, Demon of Dark Schemes, Demon of Wailing Agonies, Harvester of Souls, Nefarox, Overlord of Grixis, Reiver Demon
I would remove: Buried Alive (don't see strong graveyard recursion), Temporal Extortion/Dash Hopes (bc if its that important to your opponents they will pay the life), Grinning Demon/Minion of Leshrac (no upside), Gloom/Infernal Reckoning(unless this is a meta choice but its too situational), Sanguine Bond (do you gain that much life to be relevant?), Death's Approach (for hard removal) and Without Weakness

First, you will need a lot of ramp to get this deck going with all your demon and being able to maybe play multiple demons a turn making this deck able to sweep in with a win. You will also need more creatures that are to be sacrificed to Razaketh, the Foulblooded. Razaketh and Liliana's Contract will have you lose life so you will need some way to regain any lost life. Some cheap demons I've found are Ammit Eternal, Baleful Ammit, Demonic Taskmaster, Grinning Demon, Herald of Torment, Master of the Feast, Mindwrack Demon, Razorjaw Oni, Scourge of Numai, Soulcage Fiend, and Soulstinger.

You could also run Shock, Abrade or Lightning Strike with 4 Soul-Scar Mage. Also you should work your creature curve better ditch the Baleful Ammit for Ammit Eternal the eternal is just better. You can also ditch the Channeler Initiate for one more Exemplar of Strength. Go down to one Decimator Beetle for the two more Soul-Scar Mage the mages will be your whole engine once you put the burn spells in.

Regarding the creatures there are definitely quite a few that don't fit into the decks theme such as Sky Terror, Skittering Surveyor, Iron League Steed, Ammit Eternal, and Baleful Ammit. You should definitely replace them for lower drop creatures that can be effective early on in the game while you ramp up in order to drop your big threats.
There are also creatures that fit into the theme of the deck and have powerful abilities that more than likely wont be useful such as Archangel of Tithes, Aegis Angel, Reya Dawnbringer. Tithes because nobody should really be attacking the player who early on manages to have enormous flying angels and demons, Reya because its fairly unlikely you will have too many cards in the graveyard that can be pulled out and overall you wont get that much value from her, and Aegis could be replace with cards like Dauntless Bodyguard, or Darksteel Plate.
As for the rest of the deck there is a distinct lack of either card draw or tutors throughout the deck. The best cards don't matter if they never make it into your hand. Cards like Shock and Abrade while staples in Standard are fairly useless in EDH partly due to large life totals and multiple threats that often cannot be stopped with just 2-3 damage.
In total there are only 3 board wipes in the entire deck which is sub optimal and two of those are creatures which require you to do combat damage to wipe the board so consider having more ways to clear the board.
As for lands you should definitely be running at least 38 since a majority of your creatures have high cmc's. While you are trying to cheat them into play using kaalia you should also be able to pay their full cost if the game runs long or if Kaalia is continuously targeted.
The last point I would make is Elspeth doesnt fit into the deck very well as most of your creatures already have flying so one of her abilities is fairly useless and only producing a single soldier token isn't great protection. However Elspeth, Sun's Champion produces 3 soldier tokens to better defend herself to get to her ultimate and her second ability is a board wipe that is almost 1 sided since most of your creatures are so large.

Cool build, BSchrave93
Just my opinion, but I'd go down some instants and fill out a few more creatures. I'd probably completely pull Impeccable Timing and Moment of Craving, and sideboard Demystify. That way you can be the aggressor game one, instead of having answers in your hand you may not need when you can use a creature.
Also, I know you only have that one silver-bullet Tetzimoc, Primal Death, but he's doesn't work with you have a Solemnity out, meaning if you draw him once you have the enchantment down, that's a dead draw that you can't use unless opponent eats your enchantments, or you have 6 mana.
Why not just run Noxious Gearhulk?
Could also be worth fulling the lower end of the curve with some card draw. Something like a couple Dusk Legion Zealot could help you get a body/blocker on the board early, and the life loss can be mitigated by Baleful Ammit.
That's my take. What do you think?

Well, Golgari isn't that well represented within Standard right now. The only deck to post any results recently are constrictor decks that run over $250 currently. Vraska, Relic Seeker is in a weird place, where she's a pirate that doesn't fit in with other pirates. If you want a budget deck that uses Vraska, Relic Seeker, you could try a pirates deck that uses Treasure tokens to generate the mana for Vraska. Other than that, Vraska might fit in well with a -1/-1 counters deck like this:
|4x Baleful Ammit||8x Forest||2x Vraska, Relic Seeker|
|4x Channeler Initiate||4x Foul Orchard|
|4x Crocodile of the Crossing||12x Swamp||Sideboard|
|4x Exemplar of Strength||2x Bontu's Last Reckoning|
|4x Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons||Enchantment||3x Golden Demise|
|3x Journey to Eternity Flip||4x Naturalize|
|Instant||4x Nest of Scarabs||4x Never / Return|
|4x Splendid Agony||2x Prowling Serpopard|
|3x Walk the Plank|
