Crook of Condemnation Discussion

I suggest you add some graveyard hate in case your opponents have a way to recur back their cards (Living Death, Scrap Mastery, Sun Titan, etc.), like Crook of Condemnation, Relic of Progenitus, Nihil Spellbomb or Leyline of the Void (if you have the $$$). You already have Bojuka Bog, so nice choice :). I love the Whip of Erebos and Phyrexian Reclamation to get back my own creatures and some instants or sorceries put them back directly (one-time only though): Cauldron Dance, Torrent of Souls, Rise from the Grave. Beacon of Unrest is very nice and versatile. If you have the budget, Sheoldred, Whispering One is very effective and Goryo's Vengeance can be useful. Shallow Grave, Animate Dead and Necromancy are other options too. For mass-reanimation, use Rise of the Dark Realms, Liliana Vess or Liliana, Death Wielder. If you like the discard theme, pretty much all specters have an ability related to that, but of course they aren't of the tribes you want with your commander. Also, if you play black, I think tutors are a must, because they are the best in the game since only Beseech the Queen reveals the tutored card in black (well, I think so). So Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Mastermind's Acquisition, Dark Petition, Diabolic Revelation, Increasing Ambition and the good old budget Diabolic Tutor are among options.

So, I playtested, and on Turn 14, I milled the opponent. Does that sound above, below, or about, average for this deck? That is assuming they don't mess with my hand or counter any of my spells. Against a black or Black/Green deck this could go faster, because they mill themselves too. If you ever make a sideboard, I would recommend a Crook of Condemnation or something to that effect, to keep people from bringing cards back after you have milled them.

Cyclonic Rift can be annoying, but it's not a complete gut punch. Everything's back in the hand, not destroyed. If it's being cast to slow you down and not secure a win, you should have an opportunity to rebuild.
There are also a few cards that are effective at keeping Blue Mages at bay:
- Grand Abolisher and Conqueror's Flail prevent Blue Mages from casting Cyclonic Rift during your turn.
- Teferi's Protection phases your permanents out to dodge Cyclonic Rift.
Meren of Clan Nel Toth is a Graveyard deck. Applying some Grave-hate will put a stranglehold on her entire gameplan:

Hey there !
Guttersnipe won't have a lot of value, there is too little instant/sorcery imo. ( and not a lot of cheap one )

Cybersix this such good feedback thankyou so much!
yeah Raking Canopy is a bit lackluster in retrospect think I'll switch it for Cryptolith Rite
also I agree I need at least one means of reanimation
lots of food for thought and appreciate your insight :D

Ok, i have a couple issues with this deck:
1: Its a Stuffy Doll deck. How can you NOT have Pariah. Just, how? It's practically a crime. Also Pariah's Shield. Just put in a couple more indestructible like Darksteel Myr any you'll be completely free from damage.
2: Dead cards. Without guardian combo, all Altar of the Brood actually does is fill up the moldrotha player's graveyard a bit and make your Immortal Coil and Lich's Mastery worse. Maybe consider a different payoff, such as Genesis Chamber or Soul Warden, as they are not dead draws without the guardian, as you're getting lots of ETBs of nontoken creatures from all your flickering. Also, Leveler and Timesifter. Why? You don't have tremendously many high CMC spells, and leveler is an ETB: you can't gift the lack of library to someone.
3: You have very little synergy with her uptick. There is only a couple miracle spells and only 2 fetches. Consider putting in some of the panoramas (card link example: Jund Panorama. Remember that they can be put in Esper decks cos no colour identity) or if your fine with spending a couple bucks, some fetch lands, Myriad Landscape, or anything of that kidney
5: Eerie Interlude + commander ultimate = profit. Also Flickerwisp, Long Road Home, etc. And Eldrazi Displacer. You have a bunch of colourless lands, and if you throw in a couple mana rocks (which u should probably do btw. You only have swol ring :P ) and you'll have all the colourless mana you need.

Why are you using Overflowing Insight when you could be using Commit it acts as a removal spell for when you trigger Psychic Corrosion and provides a bunch of triggers on Psychic Corrosion from the Memory part. As long as you are running an exile effect to help with graveyards like Crook of Condemnation or Sentinel Totem you can usually win the game. Plus with graveyard decks in the format like UB or Grixis Scarab God builds it generally lends a helpful hand.

This deck Makes it really fun to watch the person sitting across from you have a complete meltdown because they can’t deal with your creatures... saving the Essence Scatters for potential creature threats and mowing over the smaller ones is more than satisfying. Opponent has hexproof or indestructible? GTFO, Trial of Ambition handles it with the amount of car touches constantly in your hand. I’ve been playing this for a minute and I made one slight change, I dropped to 24 lands, cutting one Hashep Oasis and also cut one Cartouche of Ambition to the sideboard and removed a Crook of Condemnation, and added a Jade Guardian and a single Scaled Behemoth simply because I wasn’t hitting creatures as consistently as I wanted to. I also cut one Unsummon and the fourth Negate from the sideboard and added two Yahenni's Expertise to deal with go wide strategies like vampires, Merfolk, tokens, etc.Thumbs up on the build!
