Demonic Consultation Discussion
1 week ago
Those cards are far too risky to be practical.
Tainted Pact introduces the possibility of exiling a key combo piece before it's needed. If that happens, I'd be forced to choose it and have a dead card in hand for the next few turns. I'd rather just tutor for the card I actually want so I don't waste resources.
Demonic Consultation sidesteps the shortcoming of Tainted Pact, but it falls off the cliff in the process. If I exile the named card as one of the top six, I end up exiling my entire library. Demonic Consultation also doesn't come with the same "stop here and take a subpar card" safety feature that Tainted Pact has; you must continue revealing until you hit a predetermined card.

Honestly, the Vault Skirge was put in as a flier when I had Paranoid Delusions still in the deck. It just never got cut...
I'm thinking of putting in Demonic Consultation in over Personal Tutor as well. Its another combo piece with Laboratory Maniac, and isn't as mana intensive as setting up the whole Doomsday scenario (which I'm thinking I might just cut entirely).

are you looking to make this better, more competitive, or just more fun?
If you want it better, I strongly suggest you go the + route. It's already a pretty competitive deck, and can be transitioned to edh pretty easily. A lot of players may scoff at you since they think you can kill only 1 player at a time, but by going BUG instead of GU, you should be able to fill out the rough edges of your deck.
Yes momir is good, but you have to consider he's essntially a 5cc tutor as your commander. Turn 5 you should be about to combo anyways. By adding black, you have access to the following combo pieces:
Demonic Tutor Tainted Pact Diabolic Intent Demonic Consultation VERY important, "B: get rid of your library"Dread Return combo'd with Narcomoeba and others for fun times! All reanimation spells are also a bonus. Think about it, you pitch your library, cast Reanimate , or better yet; Necromancy as an instant during your upkeep, return laboratory maniac to play, and laugh while you won turn 3.discard, discard, DISCARD,
So to recap:
Cut all non combo pieces, (lots of extra cards in there). Add in better countermagic, (free). Misdirection = Force of Will in this type of deckAdd in discard, (only a few 1cc spells like Thoughtseize . and anti counter cards like Boseiju, Who Shelters All Autumn's Veil Add in REANIMATION spells. This will help combo. In a pinch, remember if you can painter vs one opponent, reanimating THEIR graveyard critters may save you for an extra turn!Tutors are your friend! All edh combo decks need em.Expect to be booted from games when players realize your deck!
As a commander, you can run The Mimeoplasm , In the event you stall, or you're unable to get laboratory maniac from the yard, you can dupe it

This challenge is for two types of people: the Old Fogey that soothly misses the good olde days of Magic, before the mischievous age of Miracles, Infect, and Annihilator, and the Young whippersnapper that wants to know what the game was like when artifacts were brown.
For this challenge, well try out the Johnny-beloved format of Rainbow Stairwell.
What to do:
- Build a 60-card deck (Thou shalt not count to 59, nor to 61).
- Except where noted below, follow the Rainbow Staircase rules.
- All cards must have been printed before 8th Edition.
- For each CMC, you may replace a monocolored card with a multicolored card that shares a color with it. (For example, you may have Lim-Dul's Vault replace Counterspell or Terror .)
- You may replace one artifact card with a multicolor spell with the same CMC.
- No Sideboard will be used.

I'm pretty sure Spoils of the Vault would kill me every time, though. Demonic Consultation on the other hand, seems like a great card to add in, and I found it from looking up SotV, so thank you emask.
