MRDOOM3 on 1 is NOT the loneliest number

You also can look at Phyrexian Arena, Necropotence, Dark Prophecy if you have enough sac outlets to make it useful, Erebos, God of the Dead, and Greed. If only Yawgmoth's Bargain and Griselbrand were EDH legal... Oh well...

landofMordor on What life?

Hey friend, cool deck! One of my first EDH decks was an Oloro gain'n'drain build a lot like this. I'd suggest checking out my deck @ Ageless Artifacts for the broad picture of it, but here's what I noticed about your build:

Some of your cards, like Filigree Angel, want to be in a deck with a TON more artifacts than you actually have. Those are the cards I'd cut first. Next, I'd take out cards that want you to attack, like Odric, Lunarch Marshal, It That Betrays, and Archetype of Imagination, since a gain'n'drain build doesn't really want that as much as it wants protection and deterrence. Then, I'd take out some of your removal encahntments like Banishing Light in favor of WB "unconditional" removal like Anguished Unmaking and Utter End or WB board wipes like Retaliate and Fell the Mighty.

As far as cards to put in, I'd shoot for some more of those explosive combos that this deck does so well. Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is nuts with Serra Avatar and Vizkopa Guildmage, as is Cradle of Vitality. I'd put in more card draw like Underworld Connections and Greed (Oloro is an expensive and easily-killed commander, so don't always rely on his second ability).

In general, I'd say you need to take out cards that don't enable your primary win conditions or help you survive long enough to find those win cons. However, that's not to say that this isn't a well-thought-out and explosive deck, because it certainly is. Good luck! and mention me in the comments if I can do anything else for you.

projectneptune on Ayli Tribal Clerics

2 weeks ago

I'm in the process of revamping my Ayli deck into a tribal deck and your decklist gives me some great ideas so thank you for that. Welcome back to magic :) Some feedback for you:

  • I think instead of categories named "ramp" and "mana rocks", they should be "ramp" and "draw". This will give you a better idea of how many draw spells you actually have, which (in my opinion) you don't have enough for such a low mana curve. And on the ramp side of things, I'd stick in 2-3 more.

  • More commander protection.

Considerations for adds

Considerations for removal

  • Exorcist - I'm not a fan because it's only black, that's too restrictive
  • Orzhov Signet - *my issue with the signet is that it's CMC is 2 which conflicts with Ayli. I'd rather get slightly more value out of a 3 CMC the turn after
  • Orzhov Pontiff - Ability seems minimal at best but maybe i have tunnel vision
  • Hidden Stockpile - Maybe switch to Bitterblossom if price isn't a concern. Or, if you add some of the other token generators maybe this one won't be needed anyway
  • Martyr of Sands - Not nearly enough card draw to get a huge benefit out of this

LoneCrusader399 on Olivia glitters because of your blood.

Instead of playing cards like Furor of the Bitten and Deviant Glee which only pump one of your creatures, try cards like Obelisk of Urd, Metallic Mimic and Adaptive Automaton.

I'd rather play Grave Upheaval over Morgue Burst as it puts the creature right onto the battlefield with haste and it can also make certain hands more keepable with the basic land cycling.

You don't have much card draw, add in cards like Phyrexian Arena, Harvester of Souls, Erebos, God of the Dead, Greed, Promise of Power, Read the Bones, Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, etc.

Whip of Erebos also seems like it would fit in quite well into this deck.

I am going to copy and hopefully brew up some things with added ideas to this deck, I would love to chat and hear any input you might have about it! Phyrexian Reclamation seems like good suicide recursion. Toxic Deluge is great suicidal board wipe. Necropotence is fantastic suicide draw. Hatred seems like it belongs. Erebos, God of the Dead and Greed both seem solid. Slaughter is great suicide removal. Snuff Out seems fitting.

JoltsOfEnergy on Oloro-Till life do us part

Here are some cards you might like: Dark Tutelage, Greed, Hatred, Anguished Unmaking, Tree of Perdition, Bloodgift Demon, Mother of Runes, Ob Nixilis Reignited.Also surprised you have 2 different Sorins, but not Sorin Markov? Hope this helps.

I'd take out Blightspeaker - you have no rebels that I saw. It looks like you've picked up some packs of the newer sets, so you might already have a Gifted Aetherborn which would sub in well.

As for draw, green is somewhat limited, but there are options. Life's Legacy or Regal Force are relatively cheap. Harmonize or Soul's Majesty also work. If all else fails, pick up a Howling Mine or Font of Mythos and get everyone drawing. Black has Greed and I'm sure a few others... if you feel like dropping some coin Sylvan Library is a staple in every green EDH deck I make. I add a Mind's Eye to every deck as well to assist with draw.

LeaPlath on Hawk Red/Black Dragon Deck

So all suggestions are kinda budget and focused on a more casual chilled meta. I can show you how I would build RB dragons personally if you want, but my budget might be higher and I can be more cut throat, with certain political angles that might not fit your deck.

You can cut down on lands. You only need about 36, because you have 8 other pieces of ramp. However, Sol Ring seems to be missing. And you do seem to want to jump mana quickly.

Dragon Hatchling is a poor card in this deck, and I would argue Dragon Hatchling is too. Scourge of Valkas seems an auto include really for a dragons deck, and Imperial Hellkite gives you a big body and tutor effect.

I don't like Death Wind, Draconic Roar, Fall of the Hammer or Flesh to Dust. Unholy Hunger just makes the cut in my eyes. You want access to more flexible, more powerful removal ideally. Wrecking Ball for example, costs 1 less, and has an upside in you can also kill lands. Chaos Warp is very flexible, and ideally I would want something like Rakdos Charm and some more artifact removal.

You are very very draw light. The basics I would always consider are Read the Bones, Greed, etc. Phyrexian Arena and similar are also good consistent draw. Palace Siege is a recursion engine too which is nice.

I would also look for more mana sinks like Dragon Roost, or something so you can always be spending spare mana for an effect. Vampiric Dragon is another option for just pinging.
