Gurmag Angler Discussion
10 hours ago
Gurmag Angler is great for this deck. It's sort of control, and control needs a finisher. Also useful would be Tragic Slip. Cut True-Faith Censer, your deck has 0 humans and there's no upside. Chainer's Edict and it's counterparts are helpful. Murderous Compulsion and Reduce to Ashes are utter trash. Dusk Legion Zealot and March of the Drowned are useful. You don't need many creatures. Basically cut all of them for the Zealot and the Angler. Hierophant's Chalice is some solid ramp. Increase the number of Shard of Broken Glass. Lastly, add Phyrexian Rager.

Because you're in black you should have at least one Gurmag Angler. It's one of the best cards in pauper so since you're in black you should run one.

Bringing in Tragic Slip to better handle Gurmag Anglers and other reanimator targets. Swapping Evincar's Justice for Shrivel to better handle go-wide decks that have protection abilities. Gives another angle of attack since Pestilence is damage-based.

Love the deck but it looks really inconsistent, I could be wrong though. If I would take it for a spin I would make these adjustments;
- Tasigur, the Golden Fang -1
- Thought Scour -3
- Moorland Haunt -1
- Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite -1
- Grave Titan -1
- Gurmag Angler +1
- Griselbrand +1
- Search for Azcanta Flip +2
- Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip +1
- Ghost Quarter +1
- Liliana, the Last Hope +1
Thought Scour is one of the factor's that makes the deck to inconsistent and you can only do it once. You're not aggro so one for one's are not enough, value should bring you closer to your endgame. Search for Azcanta Flip or Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip are pure value generators. If you are really set on using Thought Scour, maybe Opt could be a great way to make it more consistent, it even draws an extra card but it would use up a lot of card slots though.
Tasigur, the Golden Fang should be good enough as a one of, while this opens another slot I would definitely add Liliana, the Last Hope she has good protection of her own and can help you with your self mill strategy while still gaining value of it. Her emblem wins games one it's own so she is an awesome threat in my opinion.
Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite feels a bit underwhelming as a finisher, she has no evasion on her own and doesn't give you anything for a grindy game. Griselbrand seems to fit the requirements to be a potent late game threat.
The Moorland Haunt seems to slow and not mana-efficient in the long game. Ghost Quarter is a main-board answer to Tron and can be boarded out if it's not necessary, 24 seems a bit high with your curve, 23 should also be enough I think.
For your sideboard, I would definitely try to add Trinisphere. Combo decks run rampant at tournaments and this card does a great job at keeping them from going of. I would also run Supreme Verdict instead of Wrath of God. You also don't seem to have an answer against control with their playsets of Snapcaster Mages, Grixis Death Shadow decks and Dredge. So to wrap it up this is how I would fill in the sideboard:
- Surgical Extraction 2x
- Trinisphere 2x
- Supreme Verdict 1x
- Stubborn Denial 1x
- Detention Sphere 2x
- Stony Silence 3x
- Thoughtseize 2x
- Leyline of the Void 3x
These where just some suggestion I hope you can utilize them!

Well I think you have enough instants and sorceries that Snapcaster Mage wont effect you too badly, can you can choose what to delve for with Gurmag Angler and Tasigur, the Golden Fang So I like it. also great names lmao.

Sign in Blood is better in the main; Cremate provides only marginal advantage, even against Gurmag Angler decks. One less card to delve is generally a non-issue, and it only replaces itself -- no card advantage. Conversely, Sign nets you a card, and it can be used to burn the opponent. As someone who plays paper pauper weekly, I've lost games and seen other people lose games to that same strat. The life loss is also much less meaningful for an aggro deck, and two life for two cards is a good exchange rate.
If you want graveyard hate that draws, Nihil Spellbomb is where it's at, which you've got in your SB. Relic of Progenitus is better if you're not playing Chainer's Edict, tho; can incrementally reduce their yard without having to pay the nuke cost. Less commitment/lower variance card. In either case, they should definitely stay in the SB
