WhattheDeck on [[Primer]] Gonti - Night Market Shenanigans

6 days ago

I played around with a similar build in my play group and had some feedback from experience:

  1. This list runs a lot of targeted creature removal on high-cmc bodies, but lacks responses to non-creature-heavy decks. I put in Mesmeric Fiend and Thought-Knot Seer as more general removal instead of Duplicant and Ravenous Chupacabra . I usually ended up tutoring and reoccurring Meteor Golem , so even Noxious Gearhulk seemed a bit redundant. I'm considering replacing it with Brain Maggot .

  2. Vulturous Aven surprised me and actually performed really well. With a few recursions, this was reliable, under-the-radar card draw that also acted as a sac-outlet for Kokusho, the Evening Star when reanimated together. Considering adding Dusk Legion Zealot and/or Disciple of Bolas for more ETB card draw. I might also replace Phyrexian Arena for another ETB card draw creature or probably just Dark Confidant

  3. I put in Viscera Seer for the reliable, cheap sac outlet on a body (with card filtering).

  4. Added Strip Mine and Blast Zone for more removal. Took out Cabal Stronghold and a Swamp.

  5. Put in Thrilling Encore which creates a fun wincon with Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed and other creatures. Didn't get the combo off, but had a good a blowout with Thrilling Encore after a boardwipe.

  6. Conjurer's Closet was expensive, always instantly targeted and never got much value. Probably going to replace with Abnormal Endurance , because these effects are so clutch and fun.

  7. When playing opponents' cards from Gonti, they go straight to their graveyards, which often creates a powerful disincentive to using the main ability of the deck. For graveyard control, I'm looking for a place for Heap Doll and Withered Wretch . This lets me play opponents' cards with Gonti and then instantly exile them before someone drops something like Snapcaster Mage.

  8. Adjusted the land base and ramp to include Fellwar Stone , Exotic Orchard , and Mox Opal to give more options for using activated abilities of opponents' permanents. Used Gonti to steal a Deadeye Navigator , which was hilarious and awesome.

  9. Finally, the real fun/value/intrigue of Gonti from the games I played revolved around the mystery of what cards I'd exiled with Gonti, and less on what goodstuff creatures might be lurking in my graveyard. My opponents were always flipping through their decks when they tutored, looking to see if I snatched away key cards. The combo players at the table were especially anxious. I loved it. I put in Praetor's Grasp and Bitter Ordeal to play to this strength.

  10. Great deck and definitely recommend anyone checking out this list give it a shot!

No problem! I'm glad to help. Edgar Markov is one of my favorite commanders!

Just a short list of cards that I find really do work in my list. Even better they are all three mana or less!

Chains is awesome but I definitely cannot afford it. I’m sure it’s very powerful here especially!

I could see Plunge into Darkness being useful since we have so much redundancy for our combo pieces that Scry X can probably get us there. And it can “emergency mode” to gain us our life back. I’m cautiously optimistic.

I’d recommend dropping Dusk Legion Zealot for a Burglar Rat . It’s a +3 vs a +1 and I’ve been happy for the change myself.

I've used Dusk Legion Zealot in a pauper Jund list to fulfill the role of Bob . It does a good enough job at giving you card advantage.

With Jund Vampires, if using Vampire Nocturnus I would limiting how many non-black you use, so for me I wouldn't use Sylvan Scrying . I feel there are better ways to get land and change the top card of the deck without it. I would definitely consider using Dusk Legion Zealot with Courser of Kruphix and\or Vampire Nocturnus . Viscera Seer or Asylum Visitor might be better depending on your needs.

Excellent work! I've been thinking of making a vampiric Jund deck for some time.

Would you recommend using anything like Sylvan Scrying or Dusk Legion Zealot mainboard?

We could tone down some of the plansewalkers and ghost forms here. if you wanna make a massacre girl deck you'd probably like more creatures that give value like Dusk Legion Zealot or Midnight Reaper . Grixis doesnt seem like the way to go.

Hey, nice upgrade of the precon, but you need more Vamps, less of all the other stuff :) Good job cutting Powerstone for Lantern, that was the right choice since your deck is three colors.

Edgar's eminence is a major reason to play him as a Commander and to take more advantage of eminence consider more low CMC Vamps? One drops, two drops and a couple of three drops? The idea is to have more opportunities to play Vamps in the early game which then in return gives you more Vamps on the battlefield because each Vamp you cast gives you a 1/1 Vamp token.

Budget Vamps ($5 or less each) consider adding:

You already have your high CMC Vamp to play, six drop Edgar from the Command Zone therefore you don't need a lot of other high CMC creatures. Instead cut back on the high CMC Vamps five CMC or higher for lower CMC Vamps make it easier to have more Vamps on the battlefield which in return makes Edgar's ability better, to have more Vamps to add counters too. If you like some of these suggestions I offer help to make cuts.

Shared Animosity and Bloodline Keeper  Flip are two expensive price, but powerful cards with Vamps and Edgar.


Some budget lands ($5 or less each) to consider adding:

These can replace lands here that ETB (enter the battlefield) tapped such as Orzhov Guildgate, Boros Guildgate, Akoum Refuge, etc.

Good luck with your deck.
