Butcher of Malakir Discussion

Personally, I would take out Crypt Ghast because you have only 8 Swamps in the deck. I was thinking maybe Butcher of Malakir which I think is good for a sacrifice creature deck. Black Market is also a good card.

I'm going to say stick to Rakdos, Lord of Riots. The other commanders are good, but why not run Rakdos and play It That Betrays on turn 5? Throw in a couple cards like Butcher of Malakir and Malakir Cullblade to compliment the "Annihilator" ability and you're set to go.

My second sugestion would be Jhoira of the Ghitu if going by your list, or Mayael the Anima if you're open to others.

you can't have Debtors' Knell in here, your commander does not have white in it even though the card is a hybrid it is still a white and black card. so how come no Butcher of Malakir. i love golgari colors i made a graveborn deck with meren. check it out may put some ideas in your head. Gravedigger also same as your offer i have lots of decks feel free to check them out

When picking commander. Consider what's its worst enemy. You would really hate for your commander to get turned into a tree (Song of the Dryads). So hexproof is important so Uril, the Miststalker is great choice for that. But there's always spell and effect that destroy that don't target like Wrath of God son consider Thrun, the Last Troll because you can regenerate him. But that's still not good enough because what if your opponents playing black and has all three edict effects in his deck, like Dictate of Erebos, Grave Pact, and Butcher of Malakir, then you got another problem that is a common problem for voltron commander's. So I suggest. Sigarda, Host of Herons

Thanks! glad you like it. I only actually have one copy of Anger of the Gods, but I've been thinking about removing both Oblivion Strikes to put it back in. That way I have one of those as well as a Mizzium Mortars, which is almost a better version of Anger. The second oblivion strike will be removed for an Eldrazi Monument, which keeps my Butcher of Malakir and Thraximundar on the field, and forces me to sacrifice either a zombie or a harpy every turn.

Thank you so much for your comment,

I must disagree with your statement that all Yahenni decks should be the same and run a large quantity of board wipes. The true beauty of Magic, and more so Commander/EDH, is that you can take any deck and build it in one-hundred different ways.

If you are worried about the deck not being able to control opponents creatures, there are plenty of cards that do that already:

Additionally, because I am running many different combos with Lifeline, a board wipe wouldn't really do me any good.An important aspect of building a singleton-style deck is that you have to make each of your hundred cards important; each part of your deck should be able to mesh with the rest of it.

However, I always appreciate the time people take to comment on my deck.Thank you for your time.
