Extractor Demon Discussion

Wihito on Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire

Coward_Token: Hey, thanks for throwing in some ideas. I'll probably avoid putting sorceries and instants in the deck since they're nonbos with the commander, except for Primal Surge as a finisher. With it I can get Combat Celebrant/Scourge of the Throne/Breath of Fury + Mortuary + permanent haste source (there's tons of them!) and probably finish from there with huge hasty beaters and endless attack phases.

Why Godo, Bandit Warlord? It only untaps samurais! Could fetch vigilance equipment though.

Not sure about Lantern of Insight and Extractor Demon, they need to be out together to really work. I like Aetherworks Marvel, definitely works well with the rest. Will get Scroll Rack if I can afford it, at least I already have most of the more expensive cards listed or am able to get them for cheap.

You seem to have the only Dire deck that's public at the moment (I have my own private one), so I'm going to go ahead and spew my ideas here:

Commander + Combat Celebrant + Mortuary + a haste source gives endless combat steps. The Celebrant can to some extent be replaced by Breath of Fury, Scourge of the Throne or Godo, Bandit Warlord. Mortuary can to some extent be replaced by Haunted Crossroads or Bone Harvest/Footbottom Feast/Gravepurge. The combo is pretty easily disrupted so Conqueror's Flail or something is probably recommended.

Other interesting topdeck cards I can think of include Lantern of Insight, Extractor Demon (combine with the Lantern to get rid of hostile topdeck bombs), Aetherworks Marvel and Scroll Rack

qao50 on Mill and recreate

1 month ago

Removed:

1x Hover Barrier - Not a huge fan of defenders in decks as they usually stall out the game rather than add value.

1x Dreadwaters - not the most milling. if you had a higher land curve id say its fine.

1x Fog Bank - same as Hover Barrier

1x Returned Centaur - Not too useful as a creature, essentially paying 4 mana to mill four cards which you can get better value for.

1x Sidisi's Faithful - your deck isnt revolved around sacrificing and I dont think you have enough cards that you'd be okay with sacrificing for this to be viable.

1x Sigiled Starfish - Scrying is cool and useful, but once again more value can be added to this deck.

1x Wall of Frost - same as Hover Barrier

1x Wight of Precinct Six - Better options.

1x Mind Sculpt - In edh a one-use 7 mill card isn't worth. Every card should add good value.

1x Paranoid Delusions - If this deck revolved around unblockable attacking this would be good, but since it doesn't it's just a 3 mill card.

1x Reave Soul - This could also stay in, but most threats in edh are generally above three and this being a sorcery hurts its value.

1x Tormented Thoughts - Again, you don't have creatures to sacrifice, so I wouldn't use sacrificing as a function in this deck.

1x Chronic Flooding - This can be a good card if someone is mana starved, but more often than not it's gonna just make that one land go unused.

1x Macabre Waltz - Not the strongest way to get back creatures, getting them onto the battlefield is a more efficient use of your mana.

Addition:

1x Duskmantle Guildmage - can generate mill when you need and can combo with the first effect to do a LOT of damage.

1x Jace's Archivist - Drawing aspect, gets cards in graveyard, can give you a new hand. Great card.

1x Mortivore - this is Wight of Precinct Six on crack. Plus you can regenerate him.

1x Notion Thief - I'm almost mad I'm including this but this is busted. unfortunately, it'll probably get killed all the time.

1x Psychic Spiral - A lot of Mill potential.

1x Talent of the Telepath - seven mill and you get to steal one or two spells.

1x Diabolic Tutor - can never have enough tutors.

1x Mindcrank - This can honestly win the game.

1x Life's Finale - Board wipes are always nice.

1x Stolen Identity - Copying shit is nice, but the cipher is what makes this so good.

1x Manic Scribe - Not the strongest but can be nice. assuming its later in the game, four card types should be in the graveyard so thats 3 mill every upkeep.

1x Traumatize - Fuck this card.

1x Soul Manipulation - counter that also mills.

1x Whispering Madness - spell version of Jace's Archivist.

1x Startled Awake  Flip - 13 mill that can keep coming back.

1x Body Double - could probably get a better card to replace this. but late game when graveyards are fat this can come in handy.

1x Dimir Doppelganger - since you'll play other people who use graveyards, you can exile creatures from graveyards to make them unusable, while still getting your use.

Cards you can keep but I personally dont like in the deck:

Omniscience - omniscience is op and I get why you'd want it but your mana curve is pretty low and it costs so much that I doubt youd get it out and make use of it.

Altar of the Brood - I dont know how this plays in games, but you're not getting out a lot of permanents so i dont see how this works too well.

Gravepurge - this lets you get back any creature into your hand, which is good, but you could just get a card that puts it back onto the battlefield.

Thoughtscour - this is realistically just a draw card.

Ultimate Price - that monocolor restriction holds this card back so much. Doom Blade would be better if you want it to be a low price.

Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver - I dont know how to feel about this, the exile feature kinda messes with your use from the graveyard style but you can use the second effect to get some of the creatures. It puts all of those exiled cards into a world only he can interact with which makes him good and useful, but limits your decks synergy.

Animate Dead - theres a lot of revive from graveyard cards in this deck is all im gonna say. maybe too many.

Curse of the Bloody Tome - this is helpful and makes sure someones getting milled which is good, but two an upkeep isnt very strong.

Sands of Delirium - not bad and gives you ability to mill every turn, but this is only usable when you can't do anything since you need to have disposable mana.

Cards that should be abused more:

Sphinx's Tutelage - if you make your deck able to draw more this card can be ridiculously op.

Broken Cards you can add (may be Expensive):

Lich Lord of Unx and Undead Alchemist - are both great but you'd have to turn your deck into a zombie deck and it would make you rely less on other graveyards. I dont think relying on other graveyards is good. this could also add a sacrifice element and you could use cards like Altar of Dementia. - overhauling to a zombie deck would be expensive but i think it'd be really effective.

Tunnel Vision - this could be dumb busted, i saw a combo of if you have a card that lets you put on the bottom of someones library then use this you immediately mill them out. That's gay tho dont do that.

Trepanation Blade - this is some nice mill and adds damage and attack to a possibility of your deck.

Extractor Demon - you'd need to run zombies.

Dralnu, Lich Lord - i hate to say it but zombies is looking like the way to go. get more effectiveness out of your spells.

Phenax, God of Deception - if you want your deck to be less based around mill and more just blue black interactions this dude's good. can make a defender deck worthwhile. probably the best consistent mill card I've seen.

Havengul Lich - cast creatures from ALL graveyards. shit i might buy this guy.

Sewer Nemesis - good

Decree of Pain - boardwipes are op

You commented some really helpful thoughts onto my Golgari Deck so I thought I'd return the favor.

Any other fatties like Dread Cacodemon or cheap tricks with Extractor Demon, Lord of the Void, or Reaper from the Abyss

Plus, who can forget our favorite demon Ob Nixilis, Unshackled

Love the concept! Never seen this idea which is kinda strange because its amazing. Definitely a +1!

Head CoIIector on 1/2 Shadowborn Apostles. 1/3 Swamps. 1/6 Demons.

no need for giving up black mana with a Forest for Bloodbond March when Woodland Cemetery and Overgrown Tomb exist. That's plenty green spread for one green mana needed, for a recurring effect. That should be a 3 or 4 of though should it go in.

Other fun things you could diversify to. Diversity is fun when you're tutoring the demon you want anyway.

Extractor Demon and Reaper from the Abyss are nice Demons I was surprised to not find in here.

Ob Nixilis, Unshackled synergizes well with repeated Shadowborn saccing and discourages tutor/fetchland usage from opponents.

Bloodbond March is a nice way to get some recursion, although you should definitely watch out for grouphug effects (although, it shouldn't be much of a problem in EDH, unless it's a Relentless Rats deck or another Shadowborn Apostle deck). Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker works as well, although he isn't a demon.

Archdemon of Unx, Xathrid Necromancer, and Rotlung Reanimator are nice ways to get some extra value from your Shadowborn saccing.

Thrumming Stone can also be used to pump out more Shadowborn Apostles in one turn.

JuQ on The Haunting of Karador: Ghost Chieftain

4 months ago

Karador was the first commander I tried to build. There is a big problem with him, his cost is absurdly high even with the discount. You need a lot of creatures in your graverd to make him affordable and even after that you will probably be out of mana when you finally cast him so you'll have to wait until your next turn to start using its ability.

You will need to make a special effort to fill your graveyard and run a really high count of creatures on the deck, so try to change any of the tools of the deck to utility creatures, that way you will also have a recurring toolbox in your graveyard.

To fill your graveyard you can use dredge (Golgari Thug, Stinkweed Imp and Golgari Grave-Troll are the highest dredgers) and you can loot (Key to the City, Smuggler's Copter, Deal Broker and Gate to the Afterlife) There are also Altar of Dementia, Dread Summons and Extractor Demon but it is a bit slow. The good news is all these cards will also synergize with your The Gitrog Monster.

This is so much easier with Meren of Clan Nel Toth as commander.
