Cabal Stronghold Discussion

Destroyerbirb on You Have To Call Me Nighthawk

1 day ago

ANub1s90 Very nice deck. I just have a few suggestions listed below.

Duress and Vicious Rumors are decent discard spells, but a bit lacking when compared to other discard spells. Try out Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek or even Appetite for Brains.

Why not 4x Nighthawk Scavenger in the mainboard? It's a better Vampire Nighthawk.

Last thing, mana base. Fetchlands are good for getting basics and increasing your chances of getting a non-land card. Nurturing Peatland is card draw in the late game, and you might want some "Man-Lands" such as Mutavault to keep the hits coming even when you are at the late game with no cards in hand. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is great with colourless lands as it turns them into swamps if needed. Another spicy thing you could try out is Cabal Stronghold, a modern-legal, slightly worse Cabal Coffers.

+1 from me.

What is the purpose of Underworld Dreams and Yawgmoth's edict? Meta?

I would swap Grim Tutor with Diabolic tutor. It does cost 1 more mana, but in this build, I would argue life loss hurts a lot, despite all your life gain. Moreover, it would free up funds for more powerful cards that don't have a redundancy.

I know you have the swamp synergy but have you considered Blast Zone?

Nevinyrral's Disk - For when everything goes to hell, cheap $. Also see Oblivion Stone since these both deal with artifacts and enchantments as well

Feed the Swarm - Enchantment removal in black is huge, don't underestimate it. While it's sorcery speed and the life loss hurts, it seems you have enough life gain to hopefully mitigate this? I know it's in your mayeboard probably for that reason.

Cabal Stronghold - It's budget/baby coffers

I've played against this commander deck several times, although each one was slightly different, they were all pretty much the same. The deck is extremely reliant upon it's commander, which most players will notice after a few games. You need more ways of protecting your commander. Whether its the Imp's Mischief sitting your maybeboard begging to be put in as crazy utility - Counters counterspells, redirects targeted removal/draw/extra turns, or good old Swiftfoot Boots as redundancy to greaves while allowing to swing in for hasty life gain, you need to protect your commander. If you were able to run coffers and command beacon with more ramp, it wouldn't be an issue. But given your budget, recasting your commander is gonna hurt (lifeloss or otherwise).

Defile - Cheap $ and to cast and instant speed.

Syphon Mind - Draw 3, each opponent discards 1, pretty good value that doesn't cost life.

Deliver Unto Evil - Get back aetherflux, bolas citadel, politic with an opponent (Ex: 1 combo piece back to your hand if you get a boardwipe to destroy the green player)

Idk if there are a lot of PW's in your meta given your choices of removal spells, but you should definitely consider Oubliette - Given it's new ruling, it's very powerful against other decks that can't interact with enchantments or just don't have the removal in hand. It's cheap $ too

Last but not least, not a serious suggestion but something worth noting is Worst Fears - This card wins games. Taking their turn and using their removal on their own creatures, sending their commander to the grave, wasting their draw spells, etc...

VampiricTooter on Ayara the Aristocrat

Ayara is one of my favourite commanders. I have a much less budget friendly build that is pretty dirty. I appreciate the version you have made but I might suggest a couple of cards that could give it a bit more punch without punching you in the wallet. Cabal Stronghold for that late game ramp. [twighlight call can straight up win the game. Pitiless Plunderer sooo much value. Whisper, Blood Liturgist or Hell's Caretaker trade tokens for token makers to make more tokens!!!

Goblin_Guide on Black Is The New Blue

I would drop two of the discard spells (probably Thoughtseize) for more mana production like Dark Ritual. Or, move the deck to modern and cut the Cabal Coffers for Cabal Stronghold and make it a turn slower.

Poseidon31 on Did you ask for cards?

1 month ago

You need Removal.

I would cut Mind Rot (4x Unburden seems enough), Fell Specter (To expensive), 2x Torments of Hailfire (2 is enough to finish), Liliana Vess. You have enough discard.

Therefore i would play 4x Thoughtseize and 4x Fatal Push. Then you need Mass Removal. 2x Bontu's Last Reckoning is a cheap Board clear with light burden. 2x Murderous Rider.

Then to push your Hailfire i would play 2x to 3x Cabal Stronghold. For Fatal Push to trigger i would play Fabled Passage. 2x Field of Ruin to deal with annoying Lands, like Azcanta or something else.

Then you have your full sideboard to edit. Here are some nice Black Sideboard cards and maybe a way to split those cards: 3x Ashiok, Dream Render 2x Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet 1x Bontu's Last Reckoning 2-3x Collective Brutality 1x Infernal Reckoning 2x Murderous Rider 2x Noxious Grasp 1x ElderSpell 1x Pithing Needle

lukeanto on Rankle's Discard Fest!

Azeworai OMG dude thank you very much for your feedback!!!....really useful info here: i didnt put any ramp artifacts cause i didnt think theyll be necessary to be honest, but i havnt had the chance to test the deck either so, dunno for sure. Although there are some ramp in the deck such as Cabal Stronghold Crypt Ghast Magus of the Coffers and rituals,like a said dunno how effective they can be yet so... I avoided put discard spells cause i wanted to be a bit diffent , i do have some to add in case this build doesnt work properly such as Vicious Rumors Duress Blackmail etc. the idea behind Mind Slash is to sac zombie tokens you create with Waste Not Liliana's Reaver and Bone Miser... I do realise the deck still need some sharpening so, ill see how i can improve it having in mind your advide...thanks dude!

I definitely feel that cards like Feast of Blood, New Blood, Patron of the Vein, and Gray Merchant of Asphodel would definitely work well in here. Also, I would definitely run Cabal Coffers and Cabal Stronghold in any mono black list. Culling the Weak and Dark Ritual would probably work well for you, too.

I'm not sure if you have card draw problems, but Graveborn Muse, Liliana's Standard Bearer, and Midnight Reaper all draw off zombies/ creature death.

Maybe Thespian's Stage would be worth to copy someones Cabal Coffers or your own Cabal Stronghold?

Liliana of the Dark Realms should be an auto-include, too
