Bone Splinters Discussion
1 month ago
Sadly this kinda deck wouldn't hold up in my meta at all. Seems totally alright, though I do not understand the choice of commander when looking at the list. I see close to no sacrifices in the deck (Yahenni, merciless resolve and Kalitas). Also many of the cards are straight up bad... And with better counterparts at a low pricepoint. Instead of Merciless Resolve you could run Costly Plunder. Bone Splinters seems good, you have very few artifacts or artifact creatures considering how many delirium cards you run. I don't get why you don't run Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Desert of the Indomitable etc for the same purpose: turn on delirium. How do you plan on finding value with Stoic Builder?
In case you didn't want to build anything good (which i totally respect), just ignore me ;)
Seriously though: Hand of Death?

Nice deck, love the name. I do have some suggestions, all of them of common rarity. Tragic Slip and Bone Splinters are great removal, and they both can eliminate threats for a cheap mana cost, while still sacrificing creatures. Gutless Ghoul works great with cards like Doomed Dissenter, since it allows the death trigger to activate while allowing you to gain some life. Culling the Weak might be a good replacement for Dark Ritual, as it allows you to gain more mana while sacrificing a creature. Love the deck, +1.

Awesome idea and good list so far.
Some main board slots could be considered for removal to help interact with the opponent's board, such as Lightning Bolt or Terminate. Electrickery in the sideboard will help with opposing token and go-wide strategies. Of course, if you want to stay on flavor, consider Bone Splinters, Reckless Abandon, or Tragic Slip instead. (Goblin Grenade might even be consistent enough for the list.)
Additionally consider card draw to keep your hand going, or Unearth to get value back from your grave. Also, thoughts on Carrion Feeder? It doesn't get boosted as much by each sac trigger, but the boost is permanent and it's a solid drop turn 1. Followed by a War Marshal on turn 2, you could be looking at a potential 4/4 that can keep growing before you fling it.
Overall it's a solid deck and looks fun to play.

Thank you for the suggestions!I agree with the switch of Bone Splinters for Fatal Push the added instant speed is quite nice.Sidisi, Undead Vizier must have fallen under my radar, she has good synergy with the idea of the deck and is a suitable replacement for the high cmc legends I was running before..I also agree with the addition of a second Nykthos, just gotta track one down.

its a cool start! if possible i would switch the Bone Splinters for Fatal Push. yes they are more expensive on paper but you know have an instant that is a more versatile. if you have one more Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx it might help if you put it in the deck just to help with drawing it. i like sheoldred but her cost is so high much like Griselbrand i don't know that you'll be using them unless you're getting your devotion high and using Nykthos to help get them out on the field. have you considered Sidisi, Undead Vizier for her tutor ability? she has a good body with deathtouch and can tutor for the cost of saccing one of your guys and help you find your flails, obliterators or whatever you may need. one more Gray Merchant of Asphodel! either way, you're on to something. i playtested and this would be scary. just streamline it a bit. i'd hate to play against it when it's done! +1

Opal Palace is good for this commander
You need more player interaction too, it seems like you're playing singleplayer EDH. You need to get more targeted removal. Doom Blade, Go for the Throat, Malicious Affliction, Bone Splinters, Putrefy and Anguished Unmaking are all good, but there are probably a few in green and white that I missed. Run Abzan Charm
Read the Bones is an amazing draw card.
Cryptolith Rite is really good when you have a lot of creatures.
Trostani, Selesnya's Voice will win games
Also, look at cards that give you life when creatures enter the battlefield, like Healer of the Pride.

Debtors' Knell if your budget allows; it lets you get Elenda back when you send her to the yard. (Friendly rules reminder: if you send Elenda to the command zone, you get no tokens from her death trigger!) Volrath's Stronghold is useful for the same reason. Hell's Caretaker rounds out your options for returning Elenda.
Cards like Bone Splinters, Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner, Barter in Blood and Innocent Blood can be really, really strong with your commander since they cause a lot of creature death. You might consider Plague Wind as your ultimate haymaker, getting Elenda truly huge and allowing you to smash for lethal commander damage.
Finally, with all your Grave Pact-type effects, ways to sacrifice your creatures for value would be strong. Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim can be a source of lifegain, and Ashnod's Altar is a classic. Viscera Seer is even a vampire! Leveraging that creature death further with cards like Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat can be really solid.
A lot of my suggestions might take you away from the Vampires path (and are almost all black), but I think they'd work very strongly with Elenda.
Cathars' Crusade can turn Elenda's death into a huge board builder. Forerunner of the Legion is coming out in a couple days and can help you find clutch vampires like Butcher of Malakir or Vona. Also coming out is a nifty boardwipe that takes advantage of Elenda's small starting size: Slaughter the Strong.
I hope these suggestions helped!
