Jedne2 on Cleric Recursion

1 month ago

Initial thoughts: Your curve is very 3 mana heavy, this is good and bad, means you can flood early, but leads to some dead draws late, assuming good draws, this will be fine.

With a curve so low, you may not need high mana manarocks like Gilded Lotus Dreamstone Hedron etc. Orzhov Signet and other 2 mana rocks may be better in its place.

if you have Soul Warden you'll want her sister, Soul's Attendant

You have a lot of ETB effects. Maybe you should have some flicker cards, or ETB abuse cards like Panharmonicon Eerie Interlude SkybindAngel of Condemnation Vizier of Deferment

For the amount of life you gain, Rhox Faithmender may be good in this deck. Big emphasis on may though.

For the amount of recursion you have, you need more sacrifice outlets. Diamond Valley Miren, the Moaning Well Phyrexian Tower Innocent Blood Vampiric Rites maybe even Carnage Altar Diabolic IntentDisciple of Griselbrand Hidden Stockpile Skirsdag Flayer Ashnod's Altar Attrition Bontu the Glorified

Oh, you sorta require Grave Pact I know it has a HUGE black requirement, but it's very much required in this sort of deck.

Some cards I'd consider cutting:

Arashin Cleric not good enough.

Cruel Tutor why not Imperial Seal or Vampiric Tutor?

Greed you already have Erebos, God of the Dead you may as well replace with something better like Yawgmoth's Bargain Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip that being said, you need more card draw. So maybe grab Necropotence or some of the other draw cards I've recommended here.

Gilded Lotus Dreamstone Hedron for what was already said above

Some misc cards/tings (boom) you may want to consider:

No Rest for the Wicked Renounce Selfless Spirit as boardwipe hate

Doomed Necromancer Pious Evangel  Flip

Enchantment tribal? Constellation is a fun mechanic.

Hi Se7enfoot... Thanks for your comment on my B/W Clerics deck.

I have several suggestions for your deck, but before I present to you let me first address your comment.

Although your deck is B/W like the one you commented on, they meant to be different. Yours is a hybrid between life-gain deck and an aggro deck. Mine is meant to be exclusively aggro.

I have a hybrid life-gain aggro cleric deck, white the Daru Spiritualist and Shuko combo, but it is mono-white - have a look : http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/protection-clerics/?cb=1532856807.

Now, about my suggestions:

Kingtalk on The Black Oath

2 months ago

I run a black oath deck as my pet mono-black deck, he's a great commander with a lot of versatility. Here's a couple cards that might be worthwhile. I like Bloodghast but personally I run Endless Cockroaches just because it's way cheaper and kinda funny. Consuming Vapors is a pretty good way to weed out the board and gain life in the process. Behold the Beyond is a pretty good tutor despite it's cost, and Diabolic Revelation can be a win-con depending on how hard you ramp. I would cut Cellar Door because it's too expensive and unreliable. Stronghold Assassin is a cheaper option in comparison to Attrition and Murder might do you a bit better than Premature Burial. Anowan, the Ruin Sage is good for group sac as is Magus of the Abyss. Archfiend of Depravity helps keep your opponent's board state low. I like Corpse Harvester and Corpse Augur as well. Personally, I'd cut Bloodline Keeper  Flip because for his price he isn't worth it because this isn't a vampire tribal deck. Hell's Caretaker and Doomed Necromancer are good for recursion. Fleshbag Marauder is worthwhile too I think for group sac. I'm also a big fan of Palace Siege and Oversold Cemetery for passive recursion. Flesh Carver has also won me a lot of games, the intimidate is very powerful. I'd consider running Westvale Abbey  Flip as well, potentially a win-con. Shade's Form and Pestilence are also pretty good enchantments. I would substitute Sorin Markov for Torgaar, Famine Incarnate, he's a sac outlet as well as a big body and you can recur his effect and even use it to bring yourself back up to 20 life. Infernal Offering is also a pretty useful card in my experience. Maybe consider Alhammarret's Archive too if you want to make your card draw and life gain more impactful. Those are just a few suggestion, hope it's helpful!! Mono-black is my passion haha

eleventhend on Muldrotha EDH Mill/Value

2 months ago

Couple of notes up front (might just be due to ongoing edits):

  • You have 2 copies of Victory Chimes in the list
  • You only have 96 cards in the list (including the duplicate above) instead of 100

Design Strategy

Want to suggest a couple of deck strategies to consider focusing in on (they are all fairly synergistic but it might help to pick one to focus on to help the deck feel like it has a clearer win condition):

Mill-Value

With your current list of mill-value and beats, the missing pieces only seem to be ways to close the game.

Potential Additions

Discard Group Slug

I think this is a really interesting avenue for Muldrotha: running cards like Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Waste Not, Oppression, Mindslicer and Myojin of Night's Reach to clear out your own and opponents' hands while benefiting from Muldrotha and other graveyard recursion effects to allow yourself to keep making plays. It would be a deck unlike any other at our table so far.

Your win conditions could be both mill, using cards like Keening Stone to close, or life-loss with cards like Liliana's Caress and Bloodchief Ascension mixed with some mild creature beats.

Other solid cards that support this archetype:

Graveyard Theft or Pure Recursion

This concept would run recursion spells like Boneyard Parley to steal the best things from opponents graveyards. In this case, Muldrotha allows us to consistently run targeted recursion from our graveyard, and we can focus our deck construction on the grave-robbing package. Because of Muldrotha's ability, we want to focus primarily on "theft on sticks" which we can repeatedly cast as needed, likely leaning heavily into Black.

Theft on Sticks examples

legendofa on Sultai Reanimator options for grave ...

5 months ago

So I've been kicking around the idea of making a semi-competitive Reanimator deck in . I'm looking for cards that can dump specific creatures from deck to graveyard. I know about Dredge (come back soon, Golgari Grave-Troll!), but I want something a little less indiscriminate.

Jarad's Orders: Toss big scary creature, pull up The Scarab God or Doomed Necromancer or whatever.

Gifts Ungiven: Similar to Jarad's Orders, giving up precision for redundancy.

Corpse Connoisseur: Unearth is good with Dredge, but expensive for the effect.

Vizier of the Anointed and Iname, Death Aspect are both too restrictive.

Is there another way to do this quickly and effectively?

Alright then! We can start working on improving the aspects you want. The suggestions will be easy to make, but be warned after all of this is said and done you will find yourself in the tough spot of making cuts to fit the 100-card limit. As a start, I would suggest cutting all proliferate effects in the deck, as this is not a dedicated -1/-1 counter deck. You are better off dealing with indestructible threats through other means.

Protecting your threats is not as easy as in abzan colors but jund offers some good cards to help you with that. Golgari Charm offers regeneration and added utility in removing enchantments. Heroic Intervention is an all-star in protecting your board. Asceticism is a terrible pain if it's not removed. Wail of the Nim is not as good as the other choices here but it gets the job done.

Recovering cards/threats from your graveyard are easy as well. A pet card of mine is Oversold Cemetery. Then you have cards like Victimize, Doomed Necromancer, Pit Keeper, and others already mentioned before.

I'll post some more suggestions for ramp and more after finishing work. :)

@Panas - You hit a big concern I've been having dead on. Yeah I have too many things going on and I should start focusing things more. Thanks for the advice.

@DerektheRed - I'm really loving Burn from Within. Gib moar of the exile plz. I'll definitely look more into dealing with flying. Flying creatures infuriate and annoy me more than they should.

@luther - I was meaning to get Grave Pact. Dictate of Erebos was just cheaper and at the time I just wanted to buy the bulk of my deck. I definitely agree with you on recursion and wanted to expand that part of my deck. Meren and Sheoldred are two I was planning on acquiring soon, but Doomed Necromancer, Apprentice Necromancer, and Hell's Caretaker are new options to me. Thanks for letting me know about them.
