passascats on Take My Xantcha

5 hours ago

I feel like there is a lot more interesting things you could do with this deck.
There are a lot of forced combat cards out there that can make sure players are tappedout when she goes to swing: Avatar of Slaughter, Grand Melee, War's Toll, Goblin Diplomats, Total War, Warmonger Hellkite, and Invasion Plans.
There are also some cool enchantments that can help drain her controller or boost your life without mana: Visions of Brutality, Vampiric Link, Contaminated Bond, and Treacherous Link.
Temur Battle Rage, Psychotic Fury, and Uncaged Fury can boost commander damage or save her from death when she's facing another 5/5 blocker.
This one might be over budget, but Crawlspace can really help make sure you don't get hit with every other attacking creature on the board.
Good Luck!

I would say damage doublers like Dictate of the Twin Gods might also be good in his deck too. Maybe things like Crawlspace to limit the number of attackers? Or something that makes it even tougher to attack you with giant hordes.

Or of course the classic combo of Pariah's Shield and Stuffy Doll

Gleeock - Yeah, thankfully it's Friday and I'll have some more time to be able to give this deck a critical look this weekend! Currently looking at Pestilence, Pyrohemia, Neheb, the Eternal, Crawlspace, Diabolic Intent and Chain Reaction for cuts and looking at Blasphemous Act, Fraying Omnipotence, Dismember, Bloodchief Ascension, Master of Cruelties, Virtus the Veiled and Tree of Perdition for adds. Not 100% sold on any of these yet; but they're all strong considerations!

I see now! I LOVE that idea. I actually glossed over those two cards when I saw your deck the first time around, now I wish Xantcha was Jund. The way that you're running your deck is initially how I was planning on building mine. I just can't guarantee that they'll have enough creatures to attack with and there don't seem to be a lot of cards in Rakdos that give your opponents creatures (for a good deal); I've counted maybe 5 or so. I think redirect spells are a great addition to your deck, whereas I think my deck isn't built to utilize them to their potential.

Jimmy_Chinchila For some reason I didn't even give these cards a second thought! I was too hyperfocused on the group slug aspect of the deck to really even consider a lot of the solid Rakdos damage dealers on their own. I think I'll shy away from Malignus because I don't have any way of protecting it, giving it haste, or giving it any sort of evasion. At 5 mana, it's a pricy investment considering all that could go wrong. The other three, on the other hand, I really like and am strongly considering adding to the deck. Virtus the Veiled has the same issues as Malignus, but at 3 mana it feels much more reasonable to include. Tree of Perdition doesn't care about blockers, which is a wonderful upside. And Sorin Markov might as well be a sorcery since you can activate it as soon as it comes down. I think I'll try and order Tree & Virtus and hold off on Sorin at the moment because of the price, but he is a strong consideration for the deck. Thank you!

Ravenrose on Sliver: the Gathering

This deck is Sliver good stuff but I have a good suggestion that may help get your Slivers in twice as fast: Wild Pair. As if Slivers were not scary enough, suddenly they bring friends along. Your Overlord fetches a Sliver; cast a Sliver and you will get another for free. Door of Destinies and Herald's Horn help boost your Slivers even more. I advise also to run a few counter spells because Slivers will always be the target of boardwipes and targeted removal. I also suggest a Crawlspace and Ghostly Prison for extra protection.

I hope these suggestions have helped!

Cytoplasm seems too cute.

Stormtide Leviathan is severely underwhelming in my experience, it just never does enough or is completely win more.

I don't think you're a Metallurgic Summonings. You have too much stuff. You really want a high density of spells for this card.

I love Pathbreaker Ibex but you already have Craterhoof Behemoth and Thunderfoot Baloth and Deadeye Navigator as another must answer card. You don't need this many win cons.

I don't know why Crawlspace is in here. It doesn't jell with the rest of your deck. You really only run this is lock/Control decks. This is straight value.dec Do not waste your time with this.

Deck looks sweet. Have fun!

Just commented the same elsewhere, Brainstorm is underwhelming impact in this format unless you have a reeeeally big need for those effects.

I'm not a big fan of Cryptoplasm but that's from me and I love a good ETB abuse which he(?!) doesn't offer.

Do you need Chromatic Lantern in a 2 colour build?

Normally if think about cutting Crawlspace but I imagine it's decent in your group vs the tokens.

Tatyova, Benthic Druid is a cool card but again I'd like to be able to spend a lot of deck supporting or abusing her ability to take advantage. I don't think there's enough of that in this case.

There's some interesting cards in here, maybe an idea or two I'll pinch for my own Rashmi deck! Nice.

Nice recomendations Lebleu1806 thanks! yeah actually Iam already using the Trinketmage, Hope of Ghirapur is interesting option, is not a counter but can work, I will update the list after some playtest Iam thinking in add Azusa, Lost but Seeking and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds and add one more land I'm still reluctant to use elves, but I've noticed that I have to accelerate the mana a Lot! What do you think about Wash Out and Equilibrium? the deck need's more removal and control,Curse of the Swine is good but is a double edge sword another card that Iam thinking isCrawlspace maybe Iam going to far but my meta is so agressive, another card not so good but surprisingly effective wasSilklash Spider

pokepower116 on 8x8 Xantcha

Hey! Thanks for the mention :)

Love the idea! In terms of pure win percentage, my deck definitely isn't the right way to go about things and I feel that a more defensive pillowfort strategy like you mentioned would net you much more wins.

While red/black aren't the best pillowfort colors in the traditional sense, they have a few cards that slow or disincentivize attackers; not to mention there are a few land and artifact cards that help too. No Mercy, Dread, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, Maze of Ith, Mystifying Maze, Spires of Orazca (flipped from Thaumatic Compass  Flip), Uphill Battle, Glacial Crevasses, Vow of Malice, Vow of Lightning, and Crawlspace just to name a few. Since most of the pillowfort cards are in white, another route could be playing a card like Queen Marchesa and running Xantcha in the 99.

I think the 8x8 theory is solid for most of these categories! I feel that the player controlling Xantcha dying is a rare enough occurrence (she'll probably get destroyed or another player could get taken out before them) that you might not need a full 8 slots dedicated to sacrificing her. If this does happen, you could always use your single-target removal on her and run a bit more of it. It's not ideal, but might save you from situations where you have a Viscera Seer or Ashnod's Altar and nothing to sacrifice with it.

Same goes with the politics and memes. Depending on your definition of memes, they could have a lot of overlap there too so you might not need to dedicate 16 slots in your deck to both of those (like Curse of Opulence, Sower of Discord, or Disrupt Decorum).

Overall I think you're on the right track and I can't wait to see what you end up with!
