I suggest Faerie Macabre for some graveyard hate. Plus, she is a Faerie (of course!) and a Rogue.

@killroy726, FormerBalloon, The problem with cards like Tormod's Crypt , Relic of Progenitus , and Nihil Spellbomb is both deck strategies can easily bypass these. Flash-Hulk can easily tutor out a Grand Abolisher which shuts down their abilities entirely, and Gitrog can always discard another land, or put a draw trigger on the stack to save their Dakmor Salvage just to resume the combo all over again.

@xaarvaxus, The Walking Ballista combo has been removed in order to run these hate cards, but I still note it in case if there are better cards that won't interfere with it. I did run Darksteel Mutation , but the Gitrog player would just start playing their full combo in one turn which bypasses the sorcery speed of Darksteel Mutation . To better effect I simply ran Nevermore naming The Gitrog Monster , but Nevermore would become awkward in games where The Gitrog Monster wasn't present, as Nevermore 's hate effect can really get a particular player to start hating you fast.

@xeratheenigma, I've considered cards such as Go for the Throat and Terminate , but holding up 2 mana every turn can feel like a serious drag and slows my board progression over time, so I would prefer to keep it to 1-mana instant speed spells if applicable. (Plus a lot of popular commanders utilize black anyway, but I agree that I'd like a card that had better range as it feels like a worse Pyroblast .)

Instead of Darkblast I run Molten Vortex as it's repeatable effect can bypass counterspells which is very helpful against counter-heavy decks that want to win through Laboratory Maniac , Azami, Lady of Scrolls , Arcum Dagsson and Edric, Spymaster of Trest . I've ran Barbarian Ring , Cabal Pit , and Scavenger Grounds , but the flux of graveyard hate easily kills threshold and holding up 2 mana and the Scavenger Grounds is a real pain. I'm on the fence about Faerie Macabre as the graveyard-hate effect feels too narrow against other decks. I might be more inclined to run Ghost-Lit Raider , but holding up 4-mana doesn't make it any better either. Leyline of the Void also feels gimmicky as a 1-of in a 100-card deck, as both combos can easily out-race me in playing it if it's not in my opening hand. I would prefer running Planar Void instead, but that card would ruin my Wayward Servant + Gravecrawler combo.

The Gitrog player in my play group doesn't own a Chains of Mephistopheles , but I'm fairly certain it's discard effect would trigger before the dredge trigger unless they have two Dakmor Salvage 's. Either way, it's discard effect by itself isn't an activated ability, so I question if using one to cycle through the deck this way would share the same un-deterministic qualities as using the discard phase. (And thus be frowned upon in tournament settings.)

I’d rather play more versatile removal such as Go for the Throat instead of Dark Betrayal . You should definitely play Leyline of the Void as it doesn’t affect your yard and cancels draw triggers for gitrog. You could also play Spirit of the Labyrinth to slow gitrog down but note that they can win through this effect if they haven’t drawn a card for the turn they intend to go off on. The problem with hate creatures that affect gitrog is that they typically have 1 toughness which if they run Darkblast can be pretty lights out.

For hulk you have access to Barbarian Ring , Cabal Pit , Scavenger Grounds , and Faerie Macabre which can all be used even if Grand Abolisher is on the field.

xaarvaxus: while cursed totem doesn’t touch any of gitrogs inherent abilities it does shut off Putrid Imp , Oblivion Crown , and all of its discard outlets besides Chains of Mephistopheles and the handsize outlet

I feel Faerie Macabre is also better then the nihil spell bomb in the side board, it hits less, but it still stops alot of reanimation decks, and can Also buff your Minotaur, but I may ne wrong.

Cut the rune snags for a combination of Darkslick Shores and Sunken Ruins , once that is done replace the underground rivers with Mutavault and try to find room for a 23rd land.

I highly recommend replacing thieve's fortune with Chart a Course . There's really no reason for you to be running dismember instead of Fatal Push .

Your sideboard defibitely needs work, but definitely depends on your meta. I strongly graveyard interaction like Nihil Spellbomb or Faerie Macabre . Unmoored Ego is fun against from and combo decks. Cast Down or go for the throat. Collective Brutality is an amazing card that will help you out in a tom of different match ups. If you start to face artifact based decks, Hurkyl's Recall may be your best bet.

Also try to get four of those bitterblossom!

Hey! Just wanted to say thank you for providing me with the opportunity to, in a 4 player cedh pod, disable a Flash Hulk combo with Faerie Macabre, followed by disabling another hulk like combo with a flashed Necromancy immediately after (a different player), and proceed to win with a Ad Nauseum into Blood Artist+Oathsworn combo.

This one made my day. Love the deck.

Well the actual point for me is that I just want to make the best Teneb deck and refine him to the highest point. My actual cEDH deck is my Kess deck, I don't like Ravos due to my meta being extremely in graveyard hate. Our grave yard doesn't survive more than 2 turns at most if there is something important dropped in there. Not to mention our meta is also tech fairly well in Faerie Macabre.

Reyhan into pod can go to Academy Rector yes, but that requires a constant sac outlet, if I don't I need to sac two times. Whereas if I pod Teneb into Hulk I can use hulk to grab a sac outlet and requires me only to sac one time before I can go infinite.

Currently also in my meta, my Teneb is notorious. My match ups with this current build has won me 7/10 games every time I play him and I'm very proud of how Teneb formed and came to this point, hence why I decided to foil him out.
