Crosis, the Purger Discussion

DemonDragonJ on Commander 2017 - Spoilers

SteelSentry, the inclusion of Sanguine Bond was very nice, but I believe that Exquisite Blood would have been better, because it is currently very expensive and needs to have its price lowered.

I still wish that Dromar, the Banisher had been reprinted, as he is the only dragon of his cycle to not be reprinted in the new card frame, rather than another reprint of Crosis, the Purger.

Also, why is it that nearly every dual land in this set has no chance to enter the battlefield untapped? It does not cost WotC any additional money to print better dual lands, so why can they not reprint lands such as the check lands, filter lands, or shock lands, instead of the same dual lands that they have reprinted countless times in countless sets, before?

With C17 being spoiled in full today, we can add quite a lot of cards to the list.

Ovsiously all 5 of the reprinted FRF dragons (i.e Ojutai, Soul of Winter) are from Tarkir. So are both Taigams.

Marchesa, the Black Rose is from Fiora.

Not positive but I believe both the Ur-Dragon and his scion are from Dominaria.

Mairsil, Ramos, Mirri, Wasitora, Jareth, Leonine Titan, Jedit Ojanen of Efrava, and Arcanis the Omnipotent are from Dominaria

Anowon, the Ruin Sage, and Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief are from zendikar.

You already have the 5 wedge dragons from dominaria, now their shard colored counterparts (i.e Crosis, the Purger) can join them.

Azami, Lady of Scrolls, Ryusei, the Falling Star, and O-Kagachi are from Kamigawa.

Edgar Markov is innistrad.

Raksha Golden Cub is from Mirrodin.

Nazahn is unknown but Im gonna guess he's from Mirrodin.

Both niv-mizzets are from Ravnica.

Arahbo, Balan, Kess, Licia, Mathas, Vela, and Inalla are unknown.

jboss1642 I've been thinking about adding cards that will help deal with a lot of threats. I've been considering the original Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker as a form of removal on a stick. However it increased my already high mana curve beyond compare.

To tell you the truth, I find one-trick cards that deal with single card removal to be too unreliable for my tastes. As for Sedraxis Specter, it has to connect to really do something. I'll keep it in mind, as I did with Crosis, the Purger. I'll keep them as sideboard options. Until then, I'm still wondering what to remove and add. I'm considering Keranos, God of Storms since he is a pseudo draw engine.

Thank you for your thoughts. w

If you're looking at Nicol Bolas as a commander but don't like that high of a cmc, nor the upkeep cost there is also the slightly worse version of the ability on Crosis, the Purger

Love this deck! It definitely is very similar to my EDH deck. Main difference is that my general is Crosis, the Purger, and I use cards like The Rack and Wheel of Torture. But great deck though!

My bad I missed that you had the card in their.

I would definitely do Crosis, the Purger. Then again Nekusar, the Mindrazer has some appeal as a punish people for gluttony and greed by making them eat till they die like the movie Seven. And you can do some Notion Thief shenanighans to further punish thier greed.

TheRedGoat and RedJokr, I'm not sure why I didn't consider Crosis, the Purger already. But as far as being a hate commander, do you think Crosis, the Purger or Thraximundar is better? Based on the way I built this, I'm not sold on Marchesa, the Black Rose because, as TheRedGoat saod, there is no synergy.

TheRedGoat what would you take out for Blood Artist or the other? My problem with them is generally they are targeted before anyone board wipes, and they are generally ineffective. I've taken Blood Artist out of so many edh decks for that reason. Plus, Hissing Miasma is harder to destroy.

Also TheRedGoat, what synergies would you like to add in?
