Deathbringer Liege Discussion
4 days ago
TolarianScientist, your concern is real. At the moment, I'm running 16 spells which deal with that concern:
- Basic Landcycling: Jhessian Zombies, Ancient Excavation, Migratory Route, Treacherous Terrain, Grave Upheaval and Sylvan Reclamation
- Mana Rocks: Chrome Mox, Lotus Bloom and Mox Tantalite
- Land Fetch: Frenzied Tilling, Deathsprout, Grisly Salvage and Exploding Borders
- The Lone Mana Dork: Leyline Prowler
- Also: Primal Amulet Flip and Coiling Oracle
The problem with mana dorks is that none of the best ones are color pairs. With any other 5-color commander, this decklist would look totally different.
I like your suggestion of borderposts. Right now, the Spells I'd most consider removing are Merfolk Skydiver, Rise of the Hobgoblins, Deathbringer Liege, Terminate and Dovin, Grand Arbiter. Of those spells, how many and which would you replace with borderposts of the same colors?
Sorry for the long response.

Appears you'd want to win with either life drain and/or swinging with Teysa. keeping that in mind I would suggest adding some card draw. Black has some decent cheap card draw such as Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, or Read the Bones. The life drain in your deck should offset any life you pay for the draw. Speaking of life drain, Souls of the Faultless should deter your opponent from attacking and stall until you get Teysa on the field. It also works nicely with Deathbringer Liege and reveilark.
If you don't feel like waiting for Teysa, I would suggest Holy Mantle, Spirit Mantle, or Spare from Evil to give Teysa like protection to other creatures. After you land Teysa, you can clone her with Helm of the Host for even more ways to abuse Teysa (or any other creature in your deck). Hope this helps.

And a personal favourite of mine: Deathbringer Liege .

I would try to add some more red cards personally to have a more even mana spread as you don't want to ever be locked out of any cards unless you want to only splash red (although red has lots of good cards such as seen below)

I would add more creatures, you don't have a ton of offense. Maybe Balefire Liege or Deathbringer Liege , they combo really well with Niv. I know you don't like it, but funnily enough Urban Evolution might fit. theres also the classic Countersquall if you decide you dont like Dimir Charm (which I don't). Deathsprout would also be a nice fit
I don't love Ethereal Absolution Ancient Excavation or Treacherous Terrain . I don't know how important the land cycling is in the cuts im recommending (I'm guessing very) but I like Torrent of Souls over Grave Upheaval and I don't think the cycling justifies these cards

Ah, what a rookie mistake!
That's some good advice, thanks.
Deathbringer Liege may work if I chuck in a couple of cheap black instants to support it, like Midnight Charm and Rathi Trapper , or simply Terror . It might be wise to ditch the 2x Frost Titan for the sake of the mana curve and to accommodate black / white creatures instead.
I guess if I wanted to make something based on the Scythe then Deathtouch and forced blocking would be the way to go, and/or creatures that have abilities to deal damage like Jagged-Scar Archers , Femeref Archers , or Tahngarth, Talruum Hero (or any number of red creatures). Totally different deck, but it's something to work on.

Teysa, Orzhov Scion , Bloodchief Ascension , Grave Pact , Deathbringer Liege , Hanweir Militia Captain Flip, Hallowed Spiritkeeper , Ministrant of Obligation , Tithe Taker , Westvale Abbey Flip. To name a few suggested cards. I have a fairly budget version of Teysa here Teysa, Death Tyrant Inexpensive, and a much more costly version here Teysa, Death Tyrant.

DrukenReaps: You have a point, I'd like to fight the case of Creakwood Liege though, given that a majority of the creatures with Infect are Black or Green. Also the 3/3 tokens are good chumps, trades via Hell's Caretaker, and if they build up Triumph of the Hordes gives them all infect.
Agreed about the others being more "neat" than anything now that I look at it. I doubt really have enough WB spells for Deathbringer Liege, a ciphered creature can be removed, the other is kinda situational, and the hard to cast Obliterator. May need an extra removal spell in place of the other, but we'll see. Thanks for the suggestions.
TheAmazingSteve: I did think of that, and I had a few more sac outlets when I was considering a mill package, but yes, it seems a bandaid unless you can sac and repeat. Thanks for the suggestion.
