Chain of Smog Discussion

Awesome strategy! Mass dredge decks often go unfettered because nobody thinks to run graveyard hate.

May I recommend Nihil Spellbomb ? I tend to prefer it over Tormod's Crypt . Jarad's Orders is both flavorful and effective, Night Soil is interesting, Victimize is horrendously efficient, Grisly Salvage can dig for lands and stock the yard, Chain of Smog is hilariously underrated and great for politics (use with care), Millikin can mill and ramp, and Spider Spawning grants a small army.

Shall your games be cadaverous!

Love the idea :) Black discard and discard pain, red wheel, blue draw. Amazing synergies.

Some suggestions:

You might be able to make Memory Jar work? I see you have Magus of the Jar in your maybeboard so you probably already considered it.

All of the Niv-Mizzets sound up your alley as well but all very high CMC.

Maybe Consecrated Sphinx as an engine to keep your card advantage higher than your opponents? Although you will be wheeling anyway, so probably not worth, not sure.

What do you think about Chain of Smog or Dream Salvage ? I have always been fascinated by both of them and trying to make them work in various ways.

I’m not sure if these are underused cards but i’ve always looked at Chain of Smog and Words of Wind as cards that have great potential in Commander. Chain can be used in Muldothra, Gitrog and similar decks while Words of Wind seems like a great stax/control piece in general.

The list looks fine for the most part. I’d consider swapping Skirge Familiar for Olivia's Dragoon or if you want a non creature alternative Chain of Smog can work. I find the familiar is typically a bit too expensive and the mana he generates is typically unnecessary when we can loop petals/rituals. I’d also consider swapping Devoted Druid or Lotus Cobra for Wall of Roots due to it being able to turn infinite black into infinite green with Necromancy and Culling the Weak .

If you have access to Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre you could play Savage Summoning and/or Emergence Zone which allows you to loop ulamog at instant speed or just win at instant speed.

Also Mausoleum Secrets is a decent tutor as it can get Slaughter Pact , dakmor via Entomb , Putrid Imp , Olivia's Dragoon and, even Necropotence fairly easily.

Here’s a link to the gitrog discord they should be able to give more advice.

The card often puts in overtime in my experience. After the najeela player's plan changes to combat-combo it enables you to draw nuts amounts of cards (also it's big enough to block tymna).

Anybody tried Chain of Smog ? Feels like a solid drop immediately after lily hits, as it can just drop all players' hands on t2 (you play any accelerants first). If it doesn't rip a player down to 0 cards then you've got a free forced discard. Seems cool imo.

I would cut the four Nyxathid because it does not work well with Innocent Blood and Smallpox and would add 4 Funeral Charm . Another budget card for 8-rack is Chain of Smog as Hymn 5-8.

For the sideboard I would suggest Planar Void and Engineered Plague

Chains of Mephistopheles ? It only cost me an entire modern deck for it, but it's been sweet.

Also, I hear Chain of Smog is pretty good.
