Fell Specter Discussion

My third color for this would definitely be blue, that gives you access to Drowned Catacomb, Watery Grave, Steam Vents and Sulfur Falls, which will actually improve your mana base. It also allows you to play 3 Nicol Bolas, the Ravager Flip at your four drop in place of 3 Raiders' Wake. Moment of Craving is going to allow you to live long enough to set up your value inevitability against mono red, so I would think about going to 2 on Shock and put two more in the side board instead of Urgoros, the Empty One. This next one hurts me to say, since Fell Specter is one of my favorite cards, but you will definitely get more value out of Chemister's Insight, drawing cards is essential for you and being able to ditch a land late for two more cards is great. Also, with blue you get access to a couple of counter spells, which is fantastic against all the etb abilities on creatures right now. I would think about running two Syncopates in place of Liliana's Spoils which will help your curve as well, and go for 2 Essence Scatters and 2 Lava Coils (Now that I'm saying it, Shock and Lightning Strike would probably be out for me) so cards like Rekindling Phoenix, Arclight Phoenix, or either izzet drake can't trade for more than one card. Finally, you will have to make a choice on whether you want to get more aggressive, or more control. I would lean more toward control, as the value in this deck is difficult to overcome late game. If, however, you decide you would rather get an early advantage, simply swap the two Essence Scatter and Lava Coil for 4 Thief of Sanity. If he is not killed, he will win you the game simple as that (if he were a 2/3 I would be way more inclined to play him, but there's just too much out there to kill him for me). Anyway, didn't mean to write a book, but these are the changes I would make and why! If you like them let me know, and if you don't, then feel free to tell me that too and have fun playing with a fun deck!

So I took your idea and messed with it, going with the discard and drain theme. The main win conditions are Raiders' Wake and Fell Specter, since they are repeatable sources of damage from discard. With that in mind, here's how I reworked the deck. http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/death-comes-at-night-copy/ I included a lot more removal and almost no single off drain gain aside from Blight Keeper to trigger Raiders' Wake. You by no means need to include everything that I included, but these are just some ideas.

I don’t think I’d use that for anything but sideboard, but I think Fell Specter is a strictly better version of that card

Just curious if this is a budget option? If not I would go for the playset of Watery Grave and go ahead and get a playset of Drowned Catacomb as well. Also, if you're wanting to go all in on discard, Fell Specter could be a win condition for you. I'd also think that Disinformation Campaign would work well, and would definitely put Unmoored Ego in the sideboard. Just a few suggestions. It is cool to see you running your own deck design instead of going for everyone else's strategy. Respect. Got an upvote from me.

I love the idea of this deck and Nicol Bolas, the Ravager Flip is my favourite commander to play with! I would strongly suggest you throw in more punishment for discarding, like Bloodchief Ascension or the previously mentioned Liliana's Caress. Creature cards that synergise well here too would be Fell Specter for some more discard punishment and Magus of the Wheel as well as Jace's Archivist to force some bulk discard effects. I have a similar deck to this and have found The Locust God helps out quite a lot when you draw cards to pump out a good wall of chump blockers! Hope this help!

I know right. Some cards are just incompatible with some decks, despite great synergy, like how Fell Specter turned out to be a horrible card in my discard theme deck. And how Syncopate is a bad spell in anything other than a proper control archetype. It may be a great spell, but not in a deck that actually wants to use its manna to play other cards. Sometimes good cards arent any good in the deck you're running, and sometimes "bad" cards are bad in all decks apart from one, where its a crazy powerplay. Sometimes extensive playtesting is a requirement in order to make a proper assesment of a card's value.
