Erich_Zann on Honey, why is there a pot roast inside the candle?

Wolfrage76, I used to play Mirri the Cursed, but I realized for 4cmc she is just a card that turns sideways bersus other 4cmc vampires that net me more value. I love her though and she was in here for a while. She's a pet card for me, but lack the room to put her in.

Aether Vial doesn't allow me to trigger Edgar's effect because I have to cast vampire spells to get tokens.

I may consider Basilisk Collar, but the problem is making room. I'm trying to fit one more protection spell in the deck. Either a white protection instant or Cauldron of Souls at instant speed during a board wipe.

Blightsteel Colossus + Blade of Selves

Steel Overseer + Cauldron of Souls

Ugin, the Spirit Dragon

Shimmer Myr

Prototype Portal

Shrine of the Forsaken Gods

I too ran a colourless/artifact deck (granted there are five eldrazis, but they aren't the big name ones). It has won due to an army of large artifact creatures and because of the Station Combo (Summoning Station -> Grinding Station -> Salvaging Station -> Blasting Station)

Station of Hope

+1'd immediately when I saw the Castlevania reference! Love it. I have a custom playmat that is a screenshot from the opening dialogue in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (the part where Dracula asks "What is a man?" and throws his wine at the ground).

Anyway you might like Shared Animosity and Cauldron of Souls

Yesterday this is one of my most favorite decks I've ever made and played with. Horobi does work well as a hidden commander in many decks like Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and many more. But really shines as a commander.

Some of my friends hate playing against this deck because it has a very easy time of locking down the field in a variety of ways. They either don't want to play creatures because they will die. Or can't because all their lands produce only black mana.

Smart players will target horobi when it hits the field, but the key is to play even smarter then them. You do not cast the commander unless you have some way of targeting other players creatures. Whether it's instants, artifacts or lands. Yes, they will kill the commander, but at a huge cost. You can respond and put spells on the stack wiping out their whole field. Cauldron of Souls is a great way of doing just that.

Veilstone Amulet is a great card that has saved me a solid handful of times. Also, if you are looking for good tech cards like this check out my youtube channel where we dig them up. Its called "The Card Pool".

Magistrate's Scepter seems super easy to break, especially in something like an Atraxa deck.

For Instance:

  1. Pay to put one counter on it.

  2. Contagion Engine Puts 2 more

  3. Atraxa puts one more which leaves 4 counters on it, which means infinite turns.


Dramatic Scepter + Inexorable Tide + This = infinite turns


This + Core Prowler + Paradox Engine + Cauldron of Souls + any sac outlet = infinite turns

Admittedly that last one is janky but still works, and these are just off the top of my head, why is this card not seeing more play?

Cauldron of Souls can kinda help with boardwipes. Also Lurking Predators is a pretty sweet enchantment for crature heavy decks.

chadsansing on Meren zombie bitch/ recursion

Lots of great choices with a commander like Meren.

Maybe an Ashnod's Altar, Birthing Pod, and Cauldron of Souls for artifacts?

Black Market, Grave Pact and/or Dictate of Erebos for enchantments?

A few other creatures that come to mind: Mycoloth, Butcher of Malakir, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner, Rune-Scarred Demon, Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Viscera Seer, Pathbreaker Ibex, and Zulaport Cutthroat.

If it ever helps to compare notes, I run a similar list at Mazirek Counters.

Happy brewing!
