I've been thinking of replacing Eater of Hope with Harvester of Souls and Young Wolf/Wall of Blossoms with Viridian Emissary. I also want to make room for Golgari Signet/Cryptolith Rite and Nyx Weaver.

Bif_Slagthor on My First EDH Deck (Suggestions Needed)

3 weeks ago

Interesting. A few pointers/suggestions; Your CMC (converted mana cost) is extremely high, hovering around 4.5. A good number to try and start at is around 3 to 3.5, and tweak it from there. Your deck also seems to have a bit of an identity crisis, where it is both big butts, life gain and sacrifice all at once. I would try and focus on two of those instead of all three. Since you said this is mostly for friends, i assume that it isn't super competitive, so here are a few suggestions for cuts and suggested replacements: Baleful Eidolon- its just a 1/1 deathtouch for 2 unless you pay a ton of mana. Replace with Sakura-Tribe Elder for ramp. Eater of Hope just a mediocre creature, replace with Silklash Spider so you can have a big butt and deal with fliers. Hollowborn Barghest is just a bad creature, really. replace with Blinding Angel or Defiant Bloodlord, which both do cool things. Necropolis Fiend just fights with your little bit of recursion. Id replace with Murder or Hero's Downfall so you have a kill spell. I would love to give more suggestions right now, but i don't have enough time right now. leave a comment on my wall or reply to me and I'll definitely get back to you. And welcome to Commander!

I do respect you not using Infinite combos and the list seems solid!

Perhaps it may need more early game ramp, to give it some momentum? Diligent Farmhand, Yavimaya Elder and Yavimaya Granger (don't pay the echo of course) give you extra sac triggers whilst finding land cards.

If you think removal might be necessary Savra, Queen of the Golgari, Stronghold Assassin and Eater of Hope turn your creatures into just that.

I don't want to bombard you with card suggestions, but my Prossh decklist may give you some inspiration!

2gherkins on Seven by Nine with Meren

1 month ago

Perusing the internet this morning, I came across the "seven by nine" rule. If your not familiar with it, you can check it out here, under note three - http://www.quietspeculation.com/2011/05/building-depietro-depauper/

Anyways, I found it quite brilliant. I broke out my EDH deck (The Cairn Nel Toth) and decided that it needed a serious overhaul.

I decided that my nine "slots," if you will would be the following:

Removal

Tutor

Sacrifice Fodder (CMC 1 or less)

Sacrifice Fodder (CMC 2)

Sacrifice Fodder (CMC 3 or greater)

Finishers

Self-mill

Sacrifice outlets

Utility/assorted random cards

So i started sorting the piles, and quickly realized I had too many cards for some slots, and not enough for others. I started the long, laborious, and painful process of cutting cards. I couldn't quite cut enough cards from the utility pile, so I decided I would have nine utility cards, and only six distinctly self-mill and CMC three or greater sacrifice fodder cards, because a lot of other cards can do those things in addition to doing their main purpose (if that makes any sense).

Anyways, I'll list the cards I have for each slot (its quite different than the original deck). Also, many cards serve multiple purposes, so I'm putting them in the category of their MAIN purpose.

Removal - Black Sun's Zenith, Toxic Deluge, Havoc Demon, Noxious Gearhulk, Malicious Affliction, Shriekmaw, Darkblast

Tutor - Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Birthing Pod, Corpse Connoisseur, Fauna Shaman, Jarad's Orders, Buried Alive, Entomb

CMC 1 or less sacrifice-ers - Hangarback Walker, Spore Frog, the "Fog Frog," Krosan Wayfarer, Caustic Caterpillar, Bloodsoaked Champion. I need two more cards in this slot.

CMC 2 sacrifice-ers - Vampire Hexmage, Satyr Wayfinder, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Dawntreader Elk, Winding Constrictor. I need two more cards in this pile.

CMC 3 or greater sacrifice-ers - Yavimaya Elder, Shambling Shell, Fleshbag Marauder, [[eternal witness] "EWIT," Solemn Simulacrum, Reclamation Sage

Finishers - Gray Merchant of Asphodel "Gary," Demon of Dark Schemes, Phyrexian Plaguelord, Eater of Hope, Savra, Queen of the Golgari, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Hell's Caretaker

Self-mill - Golgari Grave-Troll, Life from the Loam, Altar of Dementia (The best card in the whole deck, hands down. Not even kidding. Every Meren deck should run this card), Mesmeric Orb, Grapple with the Past. I need one more card for this slot (Stinkweed Imp?).

Sacrifice Outlets - Ashnod's Altar, Skullclamp, Attrition, Mind Slash, Evolutionary Leap. I don't love one-off sacrifice spells, but I have the slot for one. I've been debating between Altar's Reap, Morbid Curiosity and Eldritch Evolution.

Utility/Random - Grim Haruspex, Horobi, Death's Wail, Loaming Shaman, Lightning Greaves, Dictate of Erebos, Sol Ring, Sifter of Skulls, Dread Return

Thoughts? What cards should fill my unfilled slots? Any cards I should replace?

miampizza on Wife Deck (life drain)

I have a few suggestions:

Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood pretty much self explanatory as to why.

Well of Lost Dreams, Rhystic Study and Alhammarret's Archive are pretty synergistic draw engines.

You are playing one of the best color combination for boardwipes. If things go wrong a well placed Supreme Verdict, Wrath of God, Merciless Eviction, Fumigate, Terminus or Cyclonic Rift can turn the table in your favor or win you the game. Boardwipes are very strong in the EDH format.

35 lands without any mana rocks is quite slow for a deck like this. Maybe you could consider adding some ramp to ensure that your strategy starts pumping before your opponent's. I'm talking about cards like Azorius Signet, Dimir Signet, Orzhov Signet, Sol Ring, Thran Dynamo, Basalt Monolith etc etc.

I feel like Colossus of Akros, Eater of Hope, Kothophed, Soul Hoarder, Maze Sentinel and Mortus Strider are either not very synergistic or weak compared to many other possible choices.

Rhox Faithmender, Archangel of Thune (quite pricy $),Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Sphinx of the Steel Wind could be interesting cards.

As for your removal you heavily rely on Pacifism effects. If that's what you absolutely want, go ahead, but if you'd like a bit versatility (sometimes an enchantment or something else might prevent you from gaining life of playing at all), cards like Anguished Unmaking, Counterspell, Mortify, Return to Dust and Utter End could be pretty interesting.

Might have a few cards that comes to mind. I hope any of those cards were inspirational to you :P

Surrak_and_Roll on budget combo

Eater of Hope and Abhorrent Overlord do synergize very well together but to use them as mass removal is very expensive mana-wise. I'm not sure what your budget is like but if you wanted to make this combo better you could include things like: Black Market, Blood Artist or Grave Pact effects, or even something like Grave Betrayal or Harvester of Souls for a little bit more advantage. Hope this helps to at least give you ideas!

doritosanddew666 on budget combo

I was wondering if Eater of Hope and Abhorrent Overlord would make a good late game combo for mass removal?

Thoughts?
