Dark Prophecy Discussion

lagotripha on Welcome To The Aristocracy

I mean, it'll probably push the curve a little high honestly. I'd consider a second sac outlet other than the single use Plunge into Darkness (as much as I am in love with the card with Sanguine Bond/Vizkopa Guildmage ftw), as bloodghast/crawler is super strong- Blade of the Bloodchief/Indulgent Aristocrat works, as does Yahenni, Undying Partisan. I'd run Dark Prophecy over tesya for advantage, but thats personal preference. Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox is my big list of useful black cards if you want to look through.

how does the deck develop in the early turns? - Disruption, disruption, disruption. Find something to gum up the works asap. Chains of Mephistopheles, Oppression, Desolation, Mindslicer, Contamination, or Infernal Darkness all work wonders. Necropotence, Waste Not, or Geth's Grimoire are great for creating early advantage, but they don't adversely affect opponent game plans, so first priority is disruption.

what is the reason you arent running buried alive? - It's unnecessary and it reveals lots of information. Unless you can immediately convert Buried Alive into a win, you've given the table a map of what line you're on. I prefer to develop wincons as they emerge to keep opponents guessing.

how do you feel about pawn of ulamog? - I've considered it a couple times. It still may find its way in. At the end of the day, the trouble with this and Grim Haruspex is that they only trigger when nontoken creatures die. Sure, that dovetails fine with Gravecrawler, but you want to capitalize on everything if possible (Dark Prophecy, Kothophed, Soul Hoarder, Carnival of Souls).

inventors fair seems playable here - Agreed. It comes and goes.

nether traitor - It's a combo piece that has no other utility. Try to keep those to a minimum.

Wouldn't Dark Prophecy counteract Dread Wanderer?

I did have a couple of Altar's Reap, I didn't seem to use it that often Dark Prophecy would probably be faster.

I would definitely replace Dead Weight with Tragic Slip, replace Butcher Ghoul with Gravecrawler and get rid of Trespasser's Curse sense it seems pretty random in this deck and maybe replace it with Dark Prophecy or something like that because you don't have any other card draw.

Chandrian on Liliana vs Kothoped as commander

Hello everyone,

I'm currently in the process of deciding between Kothophed, Soul Hoarder and Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip for my next EDH deck... and I'd like your input, both on potential strength of the deck as on diversity in strategies.

So, what are your thoughts?

Some of the better black cards I own are:

Phyrexian Arena, Noxious Gearhulk, Demon of Dark Schemes, Harvester of Souls, Crypt Ghast, Relentless Dead, Sangromancer, Animate Dead, Dark Prophecy, Diregraf Colossus, Empty the Pits, Dark Salvation, Pontiff of Blight

The final weakness you have stated is the only reason I opted to make a Ravos, Soultender sac deck as opposed to meren. She's just so powerful and the addition of green is just crazy! Had I have made this deck I would have used Savra, Queen of the Golgari and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord. You could also add Dark Prophecy for some extra card advantage and who doesn't love Shriekmaw?!

Looks good so far...Here are some quick ideas for you...Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder makes 5 tokens just from casting your commander, if you feel like you run out of dorks too fast. Some more 1 power guys with cool ETB/death effects: Disciple of Phenax, Golgari Thug, Weaponcraft Enthusiast, Pilgrim's Eye, & Thorn of the Black Rose. Living Death & Victimize to recover from removal. Some more permanents that will synergize: Gate to the Afterlife, Genesis Chamber, Dark Prophecy, Skullclamp. I'm not sure about a lot of the discard angle the more I think about it, discard can be very hard to make work in multiplayer. You may really have to go all in on that strategy to make it work well. Soldevi Adnate is a lesser known sac outlet that should be awesome. Nether Traitor keeps coming back for more fun. Hope this was helpful, happy gathering!!
