Dark Petition Discussion

TheGamer on Nekusar, Oprah’s Apprentice!

I do like what you have going on here, but I do agree with the last guy that Howling Mine and Kami of the Crescent Moon are both very strong cards you should probably make room for. I can understand why you don't like them in the deck, but they contribute very well to your gameplan, small cmc permanents that make your opponents and you draw cards.

Signets would probably do well in this deck, as honestly the Signets are probably gonna be just strictly better than the Talismans for you.

Also in Commander, tutors are your best friend. Merchant Scroll and Mystical Tutor are both good ones that arent too hefty of a price tag. They can fetch up your wheels which is very nice. Increasing Ambition and Dark Petition are two more cheap tutors, that are yeah definitely worse than Demonic Tutor, but definitely cheap sub-ins.

If im being honest, Id consider adding Duskmantle Guildmage to the deck. Idk how your playgroup is about infinite combos, but having a nice little subtle one in there is nice to have, and if you're running tutors, it should be even easier to pull off.

Finally just to clarify with you, I like a look a lot of a lot of the cards that are in your maybeboard. Are you looking to find room for them in the list? Are you trying to aquire them or havent yet? I can definitely help you with cuts if you need.

Master of the Feast and Priest of the Blood Rite are good, cheap demons that might help you even out your mana curve.Naturally, they have their downsides, but you're aiming to win via the contract, so it might pay off in the long run.

If you want to have a lot of living demons, go with the Languishes, and leave out the Crux of Fate (because your demons would die too, setting you back)

Macabre Waltz along with some self mill can help you find demons faster. A Dark Petition or two might help you find the contract, or a demon in a pinch.

You don't have some staple wizards. Galecaster Colossus, Sigil Tracer, Azami, Lady of the Scrolls. Docent of Perfection  Flip isn't a wizard, but buffs wizards and creates more wizards.

Dark Ritual says "add 5 black mana" with Kess out on the field.

You are missing draw. Preordain, Brainstorm, Ponder, Serum Visions are all cheap ways to draw cards and keep cards in your hands. I feel you constantly sit with no cards in hand which isn't good with a spell based commander.

Dark Petition is a tutor you are missing. Also Mystical Tutor

Kess, Dissident Mage is a commander that needs spells. I have 32 spells in my deck and I feel I need more. 23 spells is not enough. You're almost better off running Marchesa, the Black Rose as your commander in this deck.

Counter-spells is needed also. I honestly don't know how you could run a spell based deck in blue, without running a couple counter-spells. Counterspell, Dispel, Negate, Counterflux, Mana Leak are all some you should consider.

TheGodofNight on Metallurgic Summonings & Hive Mind

1 month ago

I was playing a game of EDH with some friends, and I had both Metallurgic Summonings and Hive Mind on the field. I cast Dark Petition. At what point do I get the token from Metallurgic Summonings? Do I get it before the Hive Mind's trigger or after each opponent gets their copy of Dark Petition, but before my copy? I was under the impression that it stacked up like this: Cast Dark Petition, Hive Mind triggers, Metallurgic Summonings token trigger. So I thought it was I get the token, then my opponent's get their copy of the spell, and then I get my copy of the spell. My opponents disputed this saying it was spell, token trigger, hive mind trigger. Which is the correct order? Thanks in advance for the help.

This + Seasons Past + Dark Petition + Mastermind's Acquisition maybe?

Play removal, disruption and counter, go for season past with dark petition, repeat until you have petition, acquisition and 19 mana, cast petition for nexus, cast acquisition for seasons past, cast nexus to gain an extra turn, cast seasons past to get all your removal, disruption, counter and both tutor cards back. This will be possible every single turn from there, giving you infinite turn while slowly getting you to any wincon you want and enough mana to cast it. The wincon could be Torment of Hailfire to have a card that can already win the game on it's own.

Fecundity and Skullclamp would be good card advantage engines in this deck.

Doubling Season is good redundancy with your Parallel lives for tokens, puts extra spire counters on your Thallid creatures, and also allows you to go infinite with Slimefoot and Ashnod's Altar--plus it was just reprinted, so now's about as good a time as ever to pick up this EDH staple.

Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, and the certainly more budget-friendly Dark Petition and Diabolic Tutor help you find your key cards.

Woodland Cemetery and Llanowar Wastes are both relatively cheap dual lands at the moment (< $3) that could help you fix your mana.

I always thought Bloodghast would make a nice brew with Blood Funnel and Dark Petition and a toolbox of 1-ofs to solve any situation.

Too many lands, a good number of lands for an EDH deck is between 34 and 40, 45 is the spot where you will get mana flooded on a frequent basis. maybe replace a couple of the swamps and plains with tutor effects (Dark Petition or life gain doublers (Boon Reflection, overall this is a good start.
