Demonic Consultation Discussion

Shane.Allen on Doomsday Kess

ChaosArmoury I really like it. I used to play Kess doomsday and won many a war with it. I would think that a few other ways to mill your whole library would be useful. Angel's Grace + Ad Nauseam = great way to draw your whole library. Tainted Pact and Demonic Consultation are both also good ways to make it work. I also personally like Wheel of Fortune and Winds of Change in Kess builds.

Wurmlover on So . . . The Start to a Combo Deck

ok, so first thing's first, your commander doesn't help at all with what the deck wants to do, combo off. He's way too expensive, offers little to no utility, and is all around bad. If you HAVE to stay in esper even though Breya gives you exactly what you want and red is a good color, I would recommend playing Zur the Enchanter as your commander. he is typically the go-to for esper colors. the best part about him is that he is relatively inexpensive, and doesn't requite a buildaround. All you need for him to be worth it is a few enchantments you should have anyway, things like Necropotence, Mystic Remora, Rhystic Study, etc, all provide fantastic card advantage and utility to the deck.

  • Helm of Obedience + Rest in Peace: This combo would synergize with both zur and your artifact theme, making incredibly easy to tutor for and a fun way to win.

  • Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth + Stroke of Genius: infinite colorless mana never hurt anyone.

  • Laboratory Maniac + Demonic Consultation: the way this works is that you play laboratory maniac and then play consultation naming something that isn't in your deck to mill your entire deck and win the next time you draw.

  • Overall, this deck just needs to pick a focus and stick to it. if you're going for lands, you're in the wrong color, so anything that really contributes to that should go. The combo route is the much more competitive road to go because it's faster, more stable, and will end up winning more games. Once you clean it up and tune it a bit, it shouldn't have any problem competing with those decks in your meta.

    Thanks for reading this wall of text, feel free to ask me any questions!

    +1! Love the list, consider Demonic Consultation for the deck! It allows you to name a card outside of your deck, exiling all of your deck, in which you instantly win with Laboratory Maniac!

    Hey, I was looking over this list, would Laboratory Maniac/Demonic Consultation/Tainted Pact combo fit? it is 3 two card combos in 3 cards, and it is great with the amount of card advantage this deck can acquire!

    If you are concerned because of the landbase not supporting Tainted Pact, drop down to one basic of each type and then add:

    1x Tarnished Citadel

    1x Snow-Covered Island

    1x Snow-Covered Swamp

    1x Gemstone Mine

    1x Gemstone Caverns

    1x Exotic Orchard

    1x River of Tears

    1x Reflecting Pool

    1x Darkslick Shores

    1x Darkwater Catacombs

    1x Cephalid Coliseum

    These will replace the 11 you dropped, and for what else I would consider dropping, Vapor Snag could be easily dropped for Chain of Vapor, or Unsubstantiate, either way I think it would be an upgrade.

    Consign probably could be dropped for a Delay, or any Unsubstantiate, Spell Pierce, Chain of Vapor, or like anything else, I understand it has discard too, but I don't think that is worth it.

    What do you think?

    This deck looks sick! I love Demonic Consultation and Tainted Pact decks. True singleton just looks so cool. Very, very tuned. Have you thought about playing a Lion's Eye Diamond to help facilitate early wins?

    How has Cephalid Coliseum worked for you? I play a sort-of-competitive Seasons Past combo deck with Thrasios, Triton Hero and Tymna the Weaver at the helm, and I am thinking about putting in more ways to stock my graveyard pre-combo. Cephalid Coliseum seems like a pretty cool way to do it, especially with ways to recur it.

    Similarly, how about Toxic Deluge? I played it in Doomsday Zur for a while, but in a slightly slower deck like mine I am a little worried about the cost in life, but I think it'd be worth it.

    Here is my deck, for reference.

    The only card in your deck that gives me a little pause is Spire of Industry. Do you reliably get to turn it on?

    Hey shadowmage, goblinguiderevealpls probably plays with friends, I don't think they would be if they were called terrible because some random person on the internet told them to?

    On another note, I really like the list here, the extra turn thing surprised me, but if it works, it works! I'll toss you a +1 for the unique take!

    Spellseeker didn't make your cut? I saw it in the maybeboard, but since I didn't see you run it, I assume you have some reasons for that, I'd love to hear them!

    Other than that, I see you don't run Laboratory Maniac (but have it in the sideboard), yet run Tainted Pact in the main deck, I know it works as a tutor, but you know, Laboratory Maniac + Tainted Pact/Demonic Consultation is a lot of fun. I see you run Entomb to dig out Kozilek, Butcher of Truth to reshuffle your yard in, which is clever, but running a reanimation package with Reanimate/Animate Dead/Buried Alive might not be the worst idea, considering how well I have found Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur to be with the discard synergies you run.

    @Spazdiesfirst360, thanks for the thumbs up.

    The Necropotence is in the deck for two reasons:

    1- if i begin the game with a crappy hand that makes it impossible for me to combo-out at turn 3, i can still put it in play at turn 2 and draw into the things I need.

    2- if i run against a deck that has artifact hate (for example Shatterstorm) than it is game over for me if i just had everything in play, leaving me with an almost empty hand and an empty board, except some lands. If i have enough lands however to put the Necropotence into play, i can draw a complete new hand and start over (if i get another turn).

    so, you are right, the Necropotence is not a part of the combo (i want to draw Krark-Clan Ironworks + Intuition which gives me 2 Myr Retrievers), it serves more as a backup plan

    you do have a point however that it might be better in the sideboard than in main, but i will leave it there for a bit i think. i have been considering to replace it by Demonic Consultation.

    Have you considered swapping Damia, Sage of Stone for both Thrasios, Triton Hero and Ravos, Soultender? This does two things, it gives you access to white, which means additional wrath and utility effects as well as the two best spot removal spells in commander Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile. It also gives you an additional outlet for your infinite mana combo which is accessible at all times in the command zone. With the addition of Laboratory Maniac Thrasios becomes a tutor, and instant win by playing LabMan after you find him by digging with her ability. By adding Demonic Consultation in addition to LabMan, you have the ability to win turn 2 while holding some protection with a little ramp by using Consultation to name a card outside of your deck list. Consultation can also serve as a tutor in very dire situations. This will make you mana base substantially more expensive, however you state budget is no concern, so that shouldn't be an issue for you. Probably not what you're looking to do with the deck, I just hadn't seen it suggested yet and thought I would throw it out there. I also chose Ravos over Tymna the Weaver for a reason, while Tymna is more popular, your deck isn't looking to win through combat, so Ravos will allow you to merely wait a turn to go off by recurring whatever piece you need if any of your key pieces get destroyed before you can establish your combo. Best of luck in all future tournaments.
