Blood Reckoning Discussion

hkhssweiss I will add Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh eventually, I believe he is very powerful and deserves a spot in the deck. I will not be adding Nicol Bolas, the Deceiver as I feel he is not powerful enough for 8 mana.
I do like all of your ramp suggestions and will use them if I feel the deck needs more mana-fixing/ramp.
Sweltering Suns and Cower in Fear are too weak to be good in this deck. Sadistic Sacrament is so cruel and so awesome! That card can single handedly take out an opponents chances of winning so I will definitely throw that card in at some point. Countersquall is an auto-include as it’s an on flavour Negate. I removed Slave of Bolas because I felt it was too much mana for the results it produced. Crux of Fate is definitely strong and I will consider it. The only problem with the card is if I come up against a deck with a large amount of dragons. Blood Reckoning will almost never stop the token decks from killing me so I decide not to run it. Imp's Mischief while on flavour, can easily be replaced with a copy of Redirect so that I don’t lose life. Great suggestions!

I feel like you will need to add in all the Nicol Bolas planeswalkers in here. I am very particular to Nicol Bolas, God-Pharoah and should be included in here asap LOL!
Also Nicol Bolas, the Deceiver would be on point with theme as well, since we are in Grixis colors. We need all the mana acceleration ramp, cards like Dimir Signet, Rakdos Signet, Izzet Signet, Talisman of Dominance, and Talisman of Indulgence will help you in casting all the spells since Bolas loves doing things in style.
Hopefully that helps!

Thanks for the suggestions! These are a great way to make the deck more focused. I especially like Hissing Miasma as it is a better version of Blood Reckoning, and No Mercy as well. Revel in Riches is also a better idea compared to the reainimator stuff I had before. I will definitely try to employ your ideas.

hahah dude this is fun! I love janky decks, all my commanders are that way. Maybe Consider Parallel Evolution? But that makes your deck illegal in modern.. Why oh why must populate be "creature tokens you control?" haha
I'm sure you know the cards, but you could throw in Soul Warden, Essence Warden or Soul's Attendant.. maybe Blood Reckoning rather than Ghostly Prison! That way they will be tempted to take the pings as well.. pair that with a "creatures target player controls must attack" effect and By the time they declare attackers, they'll be dead!

So right now I'm trying to decide between building Thantis the Warweaver
Legendary Creature - Spider
All creatures attack each combat if able.
Whenever a creature attacks you or planeswalker you control, put a +1/+1 counter on Thantis the Warweaver.
OR Xantcha, Sleeper Agent
Help me pool some cards that would be good with either of these guys to help me narrow down my choice.
For Xantcha I could focus on assisting Xantcha in combat with things like Fists of the Demigod, or focus on creating ludicrous amounts of mana to drain its controller and draw tons of cards.
Anybody have any other good suggestions on individual cards or overall themes to build these two around? Any and all help is appreciated!

Nice deck man! Badass names always get me.
I, as you did, dwelled many times into the realm of Mill in EDH: I hope to be helpful.
I'd suggest you to remove Throne of the God-Pharaoh, since you want to keep your creatures up for defense, and just tap them to mill with Phenax's effect right before the start of your turn (last opponent's end step). Probably you are more concerned on attacking than I do with my deck, but still.
I'd suggest swapping out Blood Reckoning for Marchesa's Decree, since the second one does exactly the same thing plus making you the Monarch. Other such cards that love combat hate are: Propaganda, Silent Arbiter, Riddlekeeper, Collective Restraint (even though it's pricy).
I'll take into consideration some of your cards for my personal mill deck. Feel free to take a look at mine, so that you can get inspired too!

For some card draw I would do Howling Mine, Staff of Nin, and Rhystic Study. For some nice pingers I would add Megrim, Liliana's Caress, and Underworld Dreams. And for protection I would add Propaganda, Blood Reckoning, and Grave Pact. Grave Pact is ment so that your opponents are less tempted to attack you.
