Ever After Discussion

KitsuLeif on Kroxa 12-Rack

It bugs me a little that Caretaker is only usable in the upkeep. But Whisper, Blood Liturgist trades 2:1... and Coffin Queen is probably too mana intensive.

What do you think of an Ever After Sidisi, Undead Vizier + Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger loop for a reusable reanimate on Kroxa every turn?

Bazzul on One card combo Demonlord Belzenlok

Lord0fHam Regarding your 1st question, there are two more combo finishers besides Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion . They are listed in the Maybeboard (Repay in Kind + Lich or Sanguine Bond+ Exquisite Blood + Soul Spike). Although these combos are not graveyard based per se, they are very mana intensive and Skirge Familiar is pretty much mandatory to execute them. The Main combo line requires Skirge Familiar to be revived with Dread Return so it's hard to avoid being graveyard dependent. I think Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion is the most resilient of the combos since multiple cards can execute the combo in case you get countered (Ever After, Living Death, or even Twilight's Call).

Regarding you second question the deck doesn't have a good way to protect itself from being interrupted (due to being mono black and having the 4cmc+ condition). That being said, there are two scenarios

-Interruption before Belz's ETB: simply ramp until 8 and try again...

-Interruption after Belz's ETB: Discarding Dread provides you multiple chances to revive the duo in the following turns. Basically you can attempt a win one per turn for the following 2 turns (sometimes even more because Ever After goes to the top of your library if it resolves..) More details are given at the end of the "combo" section of the primer.

Finally, there is Geode Golem, which allows you to pay for Skirge Familiar directly, if interrupted, simply do the main combo line.

Mullac on Eternal affliction

I would take out Ever After as it is a bit slow and I'm not sure you'd ever play it especially in modern (unless this is more of a casual deck which is understandable). I think you can cut out Merciless Eternal too, is it apply enough pressure I think, compared to your other afflict cards. You can take a hint from standard and have Curious Obsession to even further pressure if that's what you like. Also I would change Encrust to better forms of removal such as Cast Down, Murder, Fatal Push or Bedevil. Another addition would be to remove Crippling Chill for Blink of an Eye which I think is better overall as you can remove a creature and force the opponent to play it next turn, or remove something like Ensnaring Bridge or another artifact/enchantment that affects you or your creatures. I hope this helped, and this looks like a super fun deck!

Suggestions: If you're running payoffs for death triggers and sacrifice outlets, you might want to put in some things you want to sacrifice. Or ways to recur things. Either way, I think we're angling toward a black stompy deck with removal and commander synergy. We should be able to budget-ize this pretty nicely by focusing it as well.

Some cards to try: Maralen of the Mornsong, Wound Reflection, Lashwrithe, Dread Presence, Vilis, Broker of Blood, Scheming Symmetry, Ever After, Killing Wave, Decree of Pain, In Garruk's Wake, Pestilence Demon, Indulgent Tormentor, Painful Quandary, Silence the Believers

Hey, good start, but with Liliana as Commander consider expanding on the sacrifice theme? Sacrifice strategies with aristocrats can be good and powerful, but you need to commit to them with many sac outlets to make the payoffs for sacing creatures worth it. Cards such as Liliana herself, Pawn of Ulamog,Sifter of Skulls,Grim Haruspex, etc. are payoffs for sacing creatures, but they're lackluster without sac support.

Cards that are within your deck's budget to consider adding for sacrifice strategy:

Reanimation is a fine secondary strategy to use consider also expanding on it:
