Karzalar on Atraxa Counters, Less OP SO MUCH FUN

1 hour ago

I'd suggest removing a one-time proliferate source, such as Spread the Sickness, which is BOTH costly and slow (5 CMC destroy target creature at SORCERY speed? Ew.)

Also, for 4 color decks goodness : Command Tower, Commander's Sphere, Darksteel Ingot for color fixing, which might be better.

What i'd do :

Command tower replacing a land like Yavimaya Coast

Commander's Sphere replacing Fertilid (since you got like 7 basics total)

Darksteel Ingot replacing Tumble Magnet.

(That's if you have manafixing problems, but always have a Command tower in a commander deck that's 2 or more colors)

Honorable mentions and/or suggestions, if you prefer : Ring of Three Wishes, Darksteel Reactor

Ankle Shanker is fun in those types of decks

A Command Tower, Commander's Sphere and Sol Ring wouldn't hurt to get your game rollin' nice and fast.

Necropotence is considered to be one of the best draw spells in the game. It's crazy good. I run it in my Orzhov Life Gain Deck

As the Captain said Command Tower will tap for any color that is on your commander's card. It's very helpful and you'll see almost every commander deck run one.

Snapdisastermage Command Tower will tap for any color in your commander's color identity. So in your situation because tasigur is considered to be in green black and blue the command tower will tap for those colors.

Why didn't you just update your Spring Into Death deck list? There's only like 2 cards different, haha.

Okay, so first off, get rid of Sol Ring, scrub. Secondly, some potentially good fast mana sources would be Songs of the Damned, Cabal Ritual, Dark Ritual, and/or Culling the Weak.

Now on to the real meat:

Perpetual Timepiece, Elixir of Immortality, Primal Command, Piper's Melody (and friends)

These are good for grabbing your GY so you don't mill yourself out or to protect yourself from enemy Bojuka Bogs and such.

Combo 1:

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed Combo

  • Turn 1: Play a one drop ramp creature.
  • Turn 2: Play Buried Alive and fetch Mike and Triskelion.
  • Turn 3: Play Victimize, bring Mike and Trike out and ping infinitely to win.

Or tutor for Defense of the Heart and win the turn after you cast it.

Combo 2:

Necrotic Ooze Combo

Once it's out, the only thing that can interrupt this is Split Second since you can respond by adding and removing counters.

Combo 3:

Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord Combo

This requires some knowledge of how the stack works.

  • Exile cards from your library until Phyrexian Devourer's ability is put on the stack.
  • In response to the ability, continue exiling cards to beef him up more.
  • Still before allowing the sacrifice to resolve, sack him to Jarad to smack your opponents for a ton of damage, similarly to the aforementioned Ooze-combo.

This gets around player Hexproof and graveyard hate, so you don't have to worry about things like Leyline of Sanctity and Leyline of the Void with this combo, unlike the other two.

Combo 4:

Colorless Mana Combo

  • Have/get Ashnod's Altar in play.
  • Play Nim Deathmantle.
  • Play Grave Titan, pop up two 2/2 tokens.
  • Sack the two tokens to Altar, then sack Titan to get a total of six .
  • Use 4 of that to make Deathmantle grab Titan back and get you two more tokens

Repeat this as many times as desired, netting 2 colorless mana every loop.

I would suggest taking out the Simic Guildgate and replacing it with a Command Tower. Just like Sol Ring it is a Commander staple. If price isn't an option I suggest you spend the two or three dollars on the revised edition Sol Ring. They're very pretty, and the artist who did them is amazing! Hope this helps. I love seeing new people trying out the format :)

This is usually my hierarchy:

  1. I use as many fetchlands & original dual lands I can afford.
  2. I then use anything that a fetchland can grab, ie shocklands.
  3. I fill the try to fill the rest of lands with all color producing lands, like Command Tower, Grand Coliseum, City of Brass etc.
  4. Artifact staples Gilded Lotus, Darksteel Ingot, Chromatic Lantern, Coalition Relic, etc
  5. I use some sort of green ramp package:
  6. Tap Creatures Bloom Tender, Birds of Paradise, Sylvan Caryatid,
  7. ETB / Sac creatures Wood Elves, Yavimaya Elder, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Solemn Simulacrum etc
  8. Fetch sorcs Nature's Lore, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Rampant Growth, Skyshroud Claim etc
  9. Extra land drop Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Explore, Oracle of Mul Daya etc

Those are usually the steps I go through to get 5 colors in to a deck. The key is to playtest it so you can tell if you are getting the ramp out or not consistently. Always start with more and then narrow it down if you get flooded with mana too often. Nothing worse than getting mana screwed in 5 colors!
