Glistening Oil Discussion

Unlife on Atraxa Infex U

I'd replace Triumph of the Hordes with Overrun, most of your creature have infect, so the pump seems like it would be more beneficial. Phyresis\Glistening Oil would also be nice to stick on Atraxa/sun titan/etc. Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon is one of the best infect creatures, definetly worth a slot

I really like this deck. It definitely puts a target on your back since people like drawing cards, but not losing life for doing so. You may consider adding Propaganda just to keep people from attacking you. I was confused at the addition of Glistening Oil at first, but then I realized you can put it on your commander and kill VERY quickly, great interaction. The deck looks pretty tuned, but if you were looking for different options, you might consider Iron Maiden or Viseling so they get damaged based on the number of cards in hand or extra forced card draw like Fascination, Prosperity, Minds Aglow, Kami of the Crescent Moon, or Dictate of Kruphix. May even consider Past in Flames to get back those instants and sorceries in the late game. Just suggestions, but again, it looks pretty good as is so I'm not even sure what you would take out.

Also, don't forget Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind and Curiosity are a lethal combo even if they aren't infinite.

Well, there also is Zur the Enchanter who can also search for auras...I run a Zur enchanter toolbox version that finishes with Glistening Oil

Nice list. You might consider giving nekusar infect because that is so much faster than killing 40hp :D

Glistening Oil seems like the best option

Reanimator suggestions : BIG creatures like your Skeletal Wurms are welcome, since you won't pay the mana costs for them - you'll reanimate them. You need some discard spells or self-milling.

Since you like regenerate...

Creatures : Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni, Magus of the Abyss (destroy your creature? Regenerate it before!), Skeletal Vampire

Otherwise, big creatures : Demon of Death's Gate, Grave Titan, Griselbrand, Lord of the Void, Massacre Wurm...

Infect suggestions : Regenerate could shine here. Enchant your creatures with the like of Phyresis or Glistening Oil, or target them with Tainted Strike and then regenerate to keep them on the battlefield if they're targeted with removal.

Since you already have Skithiryx, Infect seems like a given.

In ALL cases, you need some draw spells. Read the Bones, Painful Lesson, Night's Whisper and Sign in Blood are choices in this matter. It all depends if you want to target only yourself or you also want the choice of dealing 2 points of damage to try to finish low life opponents.

If you decide on which kind of deck you want to make, just say so i'll help more.

I would suggest Infect. Nekusar specifies that he deals the damage, so if you give him infect, you now win after doing 10 damage instead of 40. (And yes, it is still 10 damage in commander) That's one good when to victory.

  • Glistening Oil is the best bet for this. Yes, after a few turns it will weaken and kill your commander, but if it stays on Nekusar that long, you've likely already won. The benefit is that you regain the enchantment if your opponents manage to remove your commander.

  • Phyresis, Tainted Strike, and possibly Grafted Exoskeleton are the other options for infect. I would use at least two of you want to go this rout. (And don't underestimate Tainted Strike just because it is single use only. You can cast it with a wheel on the stack and take everyone by surprise)

I see you got Phyresis and Grafted Exoskeleton, but I think the deck could enjoy having Tainted Strike, Corrupted Conscience, and Glistening Oil.

What do you think about having those in the deck as well?
