Fell Specter Discussion

multimedia on Crosis, Hand of Blood

5 days ago

Hey, I agree Nicol Bolas can be devastating repeatable discard in multiplayer Commander. It's a more powerful Grixis Commander then Crosis.

No matter the Commander choice here's some budget cards $2 or less each to consider adding. Several of these suggestions are in the maybeboard. When you're playing a high CMC Commander then more low CMC ramp helps.

Crosis has flying and most Specters also have flying which makes Dragon Tempest a two drop haste enabler for the majority of your creatures. Consider cutting the other Dragons and high CMC creatures for more Specters or creature that can give you more value?

Whispering Madness is a wheel and it can be repeatable with cipher which can be powerful with flying creatures. Read the Bones, Painful Truths, Brainstorm are mana efficient draw spells. In multiplayer Commander the versatility of Mirrormade is great, especially on a budget. With all the discard from multiple opponents The Eldest Reborn can do a lot and have many targets to choose from to reanimate.

Mask of Memory and Mask of Riddles is low CMC equipment that can be repeatable draw with flying creatures. Sunken Hollow, Dragonskull Summit, Grixis Panorama, Ash Barrens are lands to consider adding.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Hideous Visage
  • Slate Street Ruffian
  • Fill with Fright
  • Traveler's Amulet
  • Phantasmal Dragon
  • Territorial Hellkite
  • Boltwing Marauder
  • Hypersonic Dragon
  • Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury
  • Arcanis the Omnipotent
  • Moltensteel Dragon
  • Tyrant's Familiar
  • Gruesome Deformity
  • Fear
  • Foresee
  • Ambition's Cost
  • Mind Rot

Good luck with your deck.

After much debate, I have, indeed, decided to replace Liliana's Caress with Fell Specter, which did raise the average converted mana cost of this deck from 3.44 to 3.56, but I feel that it is worth the additional mana to have additional creatures for attacking and blocking.

I am considering replacing Liliana's Caress with Fell Specter, because, while the specter does have a higher converted mana cost, it also provides an additional creature and a way to make opponents discard cards. What does everyone else say about that?

DemonDragonJ on Liliana's Caress or Fell Specter?

3 weeks ago

I have a red/black deck whose main theme is forcing my opponents to discard cards, and then further punishing them for doing so. That deck contains two copies of Liliana's Caress, but I am considering replacing that card with Fell Specter. The specter does have a higher converted mana cost, but, for two additional mana, it provides a 1/3 creature with flying that also makes an opponent discard a card (although I personally feel that it could have been a 2/3, given how powerful creatures have become in recent years).

What does everyone else say about this subject? Should I replace Liliana's Caress with Fell Specter?

Haven't seen this combo before, but it looks juicy. I think a problem you might have is just getting some guaranteed damage to get the Bloodchief counters. Subbing in a Piranha Marsh or two for some swamps could get help in getting some of those counters.

Vicious Conquistador , Cauldron Familiar + Witch's Oven , or Retreat to Hagra could also be a way to get some life loss going on. Though this isn't quite getting you there.

Something like Stab Wound would be perfect if they have a big enough creature to put it on. Highway Robber also guarantees the 2 life loss and is a man on the field or Hideous End for some removal, and to get a trigger on your enemy's turn.

If you are leaning towards Vicious Conquistador , Fell Specter and Arterial Flow could work up some good synergy.

Hope this helps!

I think a Fell Specter might be useful here. You have only 6 cards that deal damage when the opponent discards, and probably need more. Maybe add them in instead of Toll of the Invasion ?

I think you might want to replace Dimir Guildgate , Izzet Guildgate , and Rakdos Guildgate with Temple of Deceit , Temple of Epiphany , and Temple of Malice if you can work it into the budget. With the number of wheel effects you have, maybe consider some cards like Fell Specter , Megrim , or Sangromancer

This deck was good before, but it's even better with Davriel from War of the Spark - Augur of Skulls into Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage into Fell Specter is a pretty nasty sequence.
