Fear but yea its intimidate but specifics black rather then using the creatures color.

something like Dauthi Embrace, Power Matrix, may be more useful for added evasion as black creatures and artifacts are commonplace.

id drop cards like Entomb, Herald of Anguish, Glint-Sleeve Siphoner, Gonti's Machinations for cards that interact more with your main plan, or have a bigger impact on the game/are more efficient.

cards like Oversold Cemetery, Shadows of the Past, Killing Wave and Victim of Night may be worth looking at, as are cards like Mephidross Vampire, Vampire Hexmage, Bloodline Keeper  Flip and maybe even things like Smallpox, Decree of Pain, Do or Die, Boompile, Worldslayer, and Season of the Witch and Stripmine/Wasteland.

I ordered some cards to add to sideboard and to replace some existing ones: Black Sun's Zenith, Killing Wave, Do or Die and Innocent Blood. If anyone has some ideas on what to take out and put in let me know. I'm thinking of getting rid of Victim of Night and considering Vampire Nighthawk and the Duress but could be convinced otherwise.

RexStrangelove on Atraxa Maybeboard - Ideas Seeking ...

So I, like many of you, am sitting in a place of giddy excitement as I wait for my new Breed Lethality deck to arrive. I knew it was the one I wanted the very moment they were spoiled, and I was Vindicated to see it outselling even the much-touted Bromance (which is also a completely solid choice, along with everything but Yidris).

Anyway, as I sat waiting, I got to looking through my old cards, plucking out anything that looked particularly juicy for the new deck. My landbase is upper-mediocre for sure, and I still need to grab a few pricier staples (i.e. Archangel of Thune and Doubling Season), but I actually found a surprising number of cards which may totally merit a spot in the lauded 99.

Basically, what I'm hoping to get out of this thread is to pick a few other players' brains about how good my card choices are. If you see something that's like a "OMFG holy shit definitely put that in there," let me know and explain why. If you see anything that's like a "Wow, I maybe see what you were thinking, but that will honestly serve you no good at all," then do the same. With no further ado:




So yeah...if anyone can offer any reasons that any of the above cards would or wouldn't be good choices, I'm all ears. Budget is a concern (I already have all the cards on this list)), but I'm WAAAAY open to hearing better suggestions than the ones I made.

Atraxa is the tits, guys and girls. I haven't been this pumped for a new commander since Kaalia and Animar. Let's put our heads together and perfect this like I know we can.

Draw_Wurm on Advertise your COMMANDER deck!

Tomiix, left you a few thoughts.

House of Cards

Commander / EDH Draw_Wurm


"Friends make the worst enemies". Exploring the idea of a 'political' mono black deck. Granting and removing favour while pursuing its own agenda.

Runs political cards like Do or Die and Temporal Extortion alongside a mono mana symbol b control creature suite. Horobi sits in the command zone, with the potential to be played like a sorcery, disrupting Voltron and counter decks, and turning cards like Cannibalize, Dauthi Embrace and Cannibalize into value engines.

Brewing at the moment so all feedback welcome!!

Draw_Wurm on Thoughts on a political black ...

Hey iAzire. Thanks for the feedback! Depends on your definition of 'political' I guess! Mark Rosewater defines mana symbol b colour identity as a realist that wants power and is prepared to let nothing stand in its way including the use of resources (death) that other consider off limits. That and Machiavellian thinking, and being prepared to sacrifice others. So cards like: Temporal Extortion, Head Games, Do or Die, Curse of the Cabal, Diabolic Edict.

Hey Enral not sure if Nuisance Engine, Orochi Hatchery, Skullclamp and maybe Dark Depths worth a look.

No Mercy Do or Die and Last Laugh may be good for flavour!

I recommend Vandalblast, Paraselene or Back to Nature, Do or Die, Crypt Incursion, Metal Fatigue, Day of Judgment and maby Flaying Tendrils or Forced March. Polymorphist's Jest is funny and kinda sorta almost wrath-y. also Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse.

also Damnation if you want to shell out the money.
