@crash328: Why not Risk Factor also? XP It's one damage less than Browbeat , but it can be used a second time in the grave. That said, I'm announcing it now; After those, & Bag of Holding , I think I got too much on my plate. 39 to be exact. But there are lots of stuff needed to be kept:

  1. Heartless Hidetsugu
  2. Fortune Thief (Because he still says so.)
  3. Aggravated Assault This actually gives me an advantage you wouldn't think of.
  4. (Unless it's said, & I feel I need to keep it; say its name; & why it needs to go.)

The rest is up to you. For now, I've heck to pay... XP

While I am 6 cards over; I still do believe this deck can get better than it currently is. & not by Competitive Gauge Either. What are good Burn Spells? Are there any cards that can make such cards uncounterable? Any cards that reduce damage also dealt to you only? I'd like some ideas please; no other deck as inspiration will do this justice...

Because Fortune Thief said so.

I once ran a deck that morphed creatures for 3 and then when you exile it and return it, it came back face up. For 3 mana and a spell to flip it, you could be looking at a 5/5 trample, haste hexproof, or something else awesome. May I suggest Fortune Thief ?

It is a fun theme, for sure. Since you've put Ramos as the commander, an on-theme card you might want is Dragon's Hoard . Fixing and a cantrip as soon as you cast Ramos? Yes, please. Bonehoard and Kothophed, Soul Hoarder are both good and on-theme, too.

Aethersnatch and Kheru Spellsnatcher could be good, and you should have the mana sitting around to play them when the opportunity arises.

Thief of Sanity , Notion Thief , and Fortune Thief are all in Grixis.

Trash for Treasure and Treasure Nabber could be good if you incorporate an artifact theme, and if you want to go deeper on the graveyard, Treasure Cruise goes well with Trash For Treasure and Bonehoard if you want to fill the graveyard.

Faithless Looting is always good, and Looter il-Kor is a pet card of mine. Merfolk Looter is okay, as well. Smuggler's Copter might be stretching the theme, but Thada Adel, Acquisitor is both flavorful and fits the theme and an artifact subtheme.

It's not a great mana rock, but Gold Myr helps you splash white, and the flavor is spot-on, same for Silver Myr . Secrets of the Golden City is an underrated commander card, and you shouldn't have much trouble turning on the city's blessing. Again, if you put in some graveyard shennanigans and looting, Tasigur, the Golden Fang is as greedy as they come. Debtors' Knell goes well with graveyards and control, too.

Villainous Wealth just oozes flavor.

Price of Fame is flavorful, and it takes out commanders like a champ. Price of Glory can wreck certain decks, and you'll be mostly unaffected from your current list.

Increasing Ambition is pretty good, especially if you're going for a combo finish.

Two cuts to go... If I remove Heartless Hidetsugu + Furnace of Rath , should I also remove Fortune Thief ? That at least gives me a slot to fill. Opinions?

Spirits on Heartless Hidetsugu, the Maniac $50 EDH

Hi Funkydiscogod,

Thanks for the suggestion,

I've added it to my maybeboard, Grafted Exoskeleton is $1.50, so in a $50 budget restricted, it takes a significant role. It can eliminate any players with 20 or more life.

Another issue is that I have very limited protection, 6 to be exact. Only 3 of them, General's Regalia, Glacial Chasm, Pentagram of the Ages will work with Infect, Basilisk Collar, Fortune Thief, and Loxodon Warhammer won't. General's Regalia and Pentagram of the Ages have high activation costs too. Both of my budget tutors only pull Basilisk Collar or Loxodon Warhammer.

I would have to 1) Have enough mana to cast Heartless Hidetsugu, 2) Haste (If a cost like Swiftfoot Boots), 3) Equip Grafted Exoskeleton , 4) Protect (General's Regalia or Pentagram of the Ages ). Worst case need CMC12 to utilize.

I need Expedition Map to pull Glacial Chasm but at $3.65 it's tough.

I need some better protection, but need budget protection. If I can shore up, to 5 or 6 protection that protect against Infect then I think I can make it a viable play.
