Crosis, the Purger Discussion

Demarge on *Primer* A Hellish Crusade [Edgy Specter Tribal]

6 days ago

I would suggest cutting most of the always enter tapped lands you have for basics (or even previously suggested lands) as discard tribal loses a lot of it's strength the longer the game goes on and players run out of cards in hand, always enters tapped lands hurt tempo making the deck slower.

Now that being said flavor wise Crosis, the Purger maybe the stronger "specter" elder dragon, course bolas is stronger overall, but maybe let crosis join the party in the 99?

I think it would be best to operate it like a group hug deck until it gets to one-on-one. Then you surprise them by destroying their hand and killing their dudes. Then drop a huge threat (I recommend Crosis, the Purger) and... gg.

Painful Quandary is huge for this kind of deck, as well as Oppression. Cyclonic Rift and other spells like it help bounce unwanted permanents to hands, and give fuel to the fire. Also consider cards like Lavaborn Muse and Hellfire Mongrel to make opponents suffer even when their hand is low. Torment of Hailfire is a great finisher/removal for a discard based deck. I feel this deck is similar to my commander deck based on Crosis, the Purger, so if you would like more recommendations, just let me know. :)

4doublexx on Discarding Dragon Specters

WhichKing Thank you for the feedback. I've had this discussion with a couple of people before, and I think by removing the majority of the specters and dragons, I turn into a grixis good stuff deck, which should just helm Nekusar at that point since I want to be drawing and wheeling all the time. I understand the 4 cmc might be awkward for a lot of players, but that was the goal of the ramp, and from play testing I have been able to get 5 drops out on turn 3 since I usually have some sort of rock in my hand, but often 2 mana accelerators. Plus, turning away from Crosis, the Purger to a grixis good stuff deck also doesn't go along with the theme. I will agree it is being pulled, but I will argue that those two directions work together. They discard, while I get value out of it, plus this allows me a safer bet on plopping down these big 6 drop dragons.

xander11 Thank you for the feedback! I already had Waste Not in my board, since that is a really really good card when it sticks around on the board. I really like Library of Leng as well since this could allow me to play around with what I want and when I want it. Will definitely be adding that in somewhere once I can find a spot.

If you want something super wacky do Norin the Wary decks, but don't go a stax route. You can go thief with it and chaos. Or build red aggro too. Another deck I really enjoy playing is a Crosis, the Purger based around discard and then also a bunch of fun dragons. Granted this might be too similar to your nekusar deck. Hopefully these help

Can't help but feel this could use some more hard removal; Dreadbore, Terminate, Doom Blade, and also... have you considered a different commander? Arguably stronger here would be Crosis, the Purger, given his ability to starve the opponents of resources rather than just probably stopping creatures after they hit the board.
