Duskmantle, House of Shadow Discussion

What are your thoughts on Duskmantle, House of Shadow?

Also Malicious Affliction isn't modern legal, it's from one of the commander sets.

Caldera Lake seems like a pointless addition. It enters tapped and can only produce the 2 colors you're splashing at the cost of a life. I wouldn't add Caldera Lake, big drawbacks without much payoff.

As for the Demons. If you really want to go for a tribal deck, you're gonna have to remove most (If not all) creatures that don't share your tribal creature type. (I managed to make a deck that works only using 20 creatures (21 with Commander) that were only tribal correlated, so it is possible for you to try)

Here's a budget friendly 38 card landbase:

Command Tower

Crypt of Agadeem

Opal Palace

Path of Ancestry (You will not be able to scry unless you play conspiracy. May I suggest changing Marchesa for Sol'kanar the Swamp King? Yes you lose the Dethrone and being able to return a card by default, but a Tribal deck should be lead by a tribal commander. Your choice entirely)

Reliquary Tower

Mana Confluence

City of Brass (I don't like it, as it will still deal damage even with Chromatic Lantern in play, but your choice)

Hall of the Bandit Lord

Shivan Reef

Sulfurous Springs

Underground River

Spire of Industry

Grand Coliseum

Inventors' Fair

Leechridden Swamp

Bojuka Bog

Duskmantle, House of Shadow (Put a demon into your gy, reanimate it, or the most obvious approach)

Swamp x14

Island x3

Mountain x4

Feel free to make some changes, but these cards are cheap and will help your mana base (If you don't like Bojuka, replace it with a Swamp.)

Hedonist's Trove is the primary win condition, but the dragons and Torment of Hailfire are an alternative if crap hits the fan. So to help keep from taking away from counter-capability while still adding mill, I took out Ghost Quarter and some unneeded extra copies of other spells to put in Psychic Strike and Duskmantle, House of Shadow. I'm gonna play test it now and see how it runs.

Hey, I'm digging this list so far!

I would recommend cutting Glimpse the Unthinkable. A 1-time mill effect that only hits for 10 cards (at $30, to boot) just isn't going to have enough impact in the average game. I would HIGHLY recommend replacing it with Altar of the Brood. This card looks innocuous, but it does freakin' WORK. I played a Lazav deck for a while, and that card always over-performed, especially when dropped on T1.

Additionally, I would recommend replacing Duskmantle, House of Shadow for Nephalia Drownyard. For just one more mana, you get 2 more cards! You'll probably also want to run Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers to help power out some of those huge X spells. Mind Grind for X = 20 is basically a game-ender in its own right, and that's easy to do with the Coffers doin' work.

I might also recommend Jace's Archivist. He may not seem like a good mill card, but he gets people churning through decks REALLY quickly. Not to mention he has crazy synergy with Sphinx's Tutelage. To that point, Jace's Erasure was another over-performer in the Lazav deck I played. I would cut Millstone for it.

It might be beneficial to replace Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger with one of the OG Eldrazi Titans, simply for the fact that they have the "shuffle your graveyard back into your library" clause. It would help you protect yourself against any incidental self-mill you'll be incurring throughout the course of a game.

Beyond that, you might want to consider adding a few cards that do graveyard shenanigans, like Sepulchral Primordial and Reanimate and Memory Plunder. You'll certainly have a lot of juicy targets!

My only other advice is to bump up your land count. Not by much, but 36 is usually bare-bones minimum unless your curve tops out at 4. I might recommend 37 or 38 for this build.

So what are you really wanting to do? Cause I'm seeing a few issues. I'm trying to keep all the suggestions cheapish, but also suggest some over time improvements.

First of all, lands. Please don't put them with different arts when you are trying to get deck help. It just makes it more of a pain to look at and suggest stuff.

Secondly, painlands. They tap for your colours and if you don't want to pay life, they tap for . As do the filterlands.

Thirdly, there are more useful utility lands you could run. Eye of Ugin is 2 mana for eldrazi and a consistent source of cards. Bojuka Bog exiles a graveyard for ingest stuff. Duskmantle, House of Shadow, Alchemist's Refuge, Grim Backwoods, Nephalia Drownyard, Novijen, Heart of Progress all tap for that much needed colourless, while having useful side effects.

I don't think Blisterpod, Hedron Crawler, Mist Intruder, Walking Atlas, are where you want to be as they are small cards, small effects, don't have Ingest etc. You also aren't running any emerge that you need the extra bodies for.

If you focus on either rushing the big eldrazi via ramp, with smaller utility eldrazi for ingest and useful effects that might work a bit better. I can suggest stuff for that, but I am guessing you are fairly new/limited on card selection?

+1 for the evilest turtle island deck!

Maybe...Nephalia Drownyard or Duskmantle, House of Shadow as another way to get apostles in the grave?

some ability lands would be helpful, such as Nephalia Drownyard or Duskmantle, House of Shadow, as long as you could add a few dollars to run things like City of Brass
