Cabal Coffers Discussion
3 days ago
Have you thought of running Voyaging Satyr over Arbor Elf? I would think being able to untap Cabal Coffers and utility lands would be worth the 1 extra CmC. I'd suggest going with Krosan Restorer over both of those if you were running more utility lands.

Deserted Temple isn't legendary either, so you can always copy it with your Vesuva . Two deserted temples with a Nykthos and say 8 devotion = 18 white mana. I always run deserted temple with Nykthos and/or Cabal Coffers, in any deck.

No ban because with other lands that do the same like Cabal Coffers and Gaea's Cradle, I don't see Serra's Sanctum getting banned. And since white is the worst ramp color (arguably red is worse) this land is important to its color. So go ahead invest, because this card will never get the hammer.

I currently play a T5 Storm Nekusar in a competitive meta, but I played a similar deck to yours a short time ago. How fast is your meta? I can give suggestions, but dialing in the power level of the deck is strongly dependant on what you deal with and how fast you are aiming to go off. This reads like a tempo build to me.
Suggested Cuts: Fevered Visions (Doesn't net you much in terms of damage), Day's Undoing (No damage from any of your permanents, as this effect pushes the turn to the cleanup step), Archfiend of Ifnir (An interesting option, but is highly dependant on your opponent being creature heavy), Nin, the Pain Artist (Same reasoning as Archfiend of Ifnir), Sangromancer (Life gain delays game loss, but does not further your goals), Propaganda (Sideboard for dealing with faster token decks), Dack Fayden (If he isn't here to steal known artifact threats, he's not much better than Fevered Visions.
Suggested Replacements: Elder Mastery (2-card softlock with Nekusar), Cabal Coffers (You're running Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, so why not take advantage of it?), Expedition Map (When you need a specific land), Temporal Mastery (Fun combo with Mystical Tutor), Rhystic Study (Most players will let you have at least three off of this before they remove it), Chaos Warp (Spot removal), and Hero's Downfall (Spot removal).
Manabase: Cut the lands that always enter tapped. I kid you not, basics are better than drawing into a tapland/Scryland/karoo/etc when you need the mana. Lands like City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Crosis's Catacombs, Reflecting Pool, Exotic Orchard, and Reliquary Tower are all better options.

Thanks for the response UnleashedHavok!
After reading your explanation of Doomed Necromancer I could definitely see it being a powerhouse in your deck. I picture activating it to return Sun Titan which brings your Necromancer back, then activating it again (because Anger is in your graveyard) to return literally anything, then attacking with Sun Titan and bringing him back again. That sounds incredible.
I'll probably evaluate my list to see if I think Feldon is worth it. There are a few changes that are in the works right now, so after that maybe I'll sneak him in.
Good call on Gray Merchant of Asphodel. It's probably a little too cute for my deck outside of combos, but I don't need another infinite damage combo piece. I'd rather have a toolbox of options instead of that redundancy. I've been toying with the idea of a life drain style list with things like Pontiff of Blight, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, and Karlov of the Ghost Council. Gary would probably find his way in that list, but not my current one.
I've been thinking about Stingscourger for a while now. My roommate has an Ephara, God of the Polis deck that uses Reflector Mage to great effect and it always has me thinking about the tempo you gain by bouncing someone's general or another key creature. Seems like it'd be worth a shot.
Thalia, Guardian of Thraben seems like it would be better in a list with a more dedicated tax strategy than either of ours. Throw in things like Vryn Wingmare, Leonin Arbiter, and similar guys and you've got yourself a deck. I think that just throwing one or two in the list makes it a little clunky. My list kind of likes the idea though, because I regularly find myself not playing spells at all, but using all of my mana on various abilities. I'll think about it a bit more.
If I had more ways to recur cards (mostly Crucible of Worlds) I would probably run Grenzo, Dungeon Warden. However, as it is I don't want to risk losing something that I can't get back like Cabal Coffers.

You need Black Market. You anticipate creature death all the time, and that will generate plenty of mana to cast stolen spells with.
Also, why bother with Command Tower instead of another Swamp? It can only tap for a single black mana anyway, so why not have a land that actually works with Crypt Ghast, Cabal Coffers, and Magus of the Coffers?

Hey man! Glad you read it. Your justifications seem fine. I still feel that the planewalkers are fairly dead - at least switch your garruk for the good one (Garruk Wildspeaker.
Cinderhaze Wretch seems fine for the slot. I have a lot more experience with Sadistic Hypnotist and at first glance this deck looks like it would benefit from it more, but hey - you've played the deck so you'd clearly know firsthand which of the two fits better in the slot.
As for Kamahl, Fist of Krosa, I really don't love the mana inefficiency - a conditional 7 mana to kill one land doesn't really get me going. That said, if you're in a competitive meta where you really need to snipe lands frequently, I'm sure he's fine.
If you don't find yourself needing to snipe lands all too frequently I think a more fitting answer for his slot would be a simple Sylvan Scrying. It can tutor out a Strip Mine in a pinch - letting you snipe something for 2 mana and a land drop. That said, it can also do a lot of other things. It can set you ahead by fetching a Cabal Coffers or your Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. It can fetch your Bojuka Bog if you need to bog the karador player. A bit more all purpose.
Your points about land are very valid. I read competitive in the deck title and figured it was worth mentioning. Mostly those are for online.
Hoping you find these helpful. And at the end of the day, this is just my eye. I haven't played the deck so I really don't know how it feels haha. I'm actually just looking for input myself.
