Harvester of Souls Discussion

Hamletback Goliath gets 6 counters per opponent and Harvester of Souls draws a bunch of cards, even if you use another creature.

Roon of the Hidden Realm and Brago, King Eternal can EASILY abuse this, but any etb or death ability worth running is worth abusing

Nice deck! It does seems to depend on wether you can get and keep your commander on the battlefield. Maybe add some other creatures as backup?

Some idea's, depending on your budget.

Alright... Lessee what I advice I can give, here...

First off, 44 lands may be a bit overkill. I'd recommend you consider putting the signets back in, as well as Darksteel Ingot, if you still have 'em. The Ravnica bounce lands are deceptively good, as well. They may return a land you control to your hand, but you can just bounce a tapped on after using it. That second mana they produce can be quite useful in the long run.

Dolmen Gate is an interesting card I've never seen in a Kaalia deck before. O.o I like it! Might consider getting one, myself, lol.

I'd recommend a few cheaper critters like Baneslayer Angel and Thundermaw Hellkite. Mainboarding your Blinding Angel and Kothophed, Soul Hoarder would also be advisable. There's also Harvester of Souls to consider, and I find it odd that you took out Angel of Despair. O.o

Rise of the Dark Realms and In Garruk's Wake are interesting, but seem... unnecessary. Same goes for Warstorm Surge.

Finally, Decree of Pain seems like it'd be useful, as well--particularly as a replacement for Wake.

For further inspiration, my deck's right here: Hardcore Kaalia.

Hope that helps! :)

Cole6000 No worries. Yes, it's an actual deck that I've built. And it's actually somewhat playable in a casual group. Reaper King can actually be pretty oppressive if tuned up a lot, as his second ability can turn into multiple free Vindicates a turn. But I loved the card, and I wanted to build around it. So I used the farming theme was as mostly a deck-building limitation to keep his power in level with other decks in my playgroup as well as for fun.

Basically, the deck focuses on making creatures (through token production or graveyard recursion) that trigger Reaper King's second ability (through actual scarecrows, mimic scarecrows like Adaptive Automaton or Metallic Mimic, or using Conspiracy and Xenograft naming scarecrow to turn all your creatures into scarecrows that will then all be buffed by Reaper King and the mimic scarecrows) to wipe out your opponents' boards. As a bonus, you have a lot of things that can trigger upon the death of a creature -- Deathreap Ritual, Harvester of Souls, Compost, Reaper from the Abyss, Reaper of the Wilds -- or that can benefit from having things in your opponent's graveyard -- Scavenging Ooze, Night Soil, Teneb, the Harvester. There's a few sac outlets (High Market, Trading Post, Scarecrone, Greater Harvester, Mycoloth) to sac your own tokens or creatures when beneficial. And then there's ramp, support, and graveyard recursion cards to fill in the rest.

It's not very tuned at all, as that's kinda the point. There's several cards that could be swapped out for better or more powerful ones (for example, a kicked Rite of Replication on Reaper King results in 25 vindicates). But it's a fun casual deck. Hopefully that explanation makes sense. I'm happy to clarify anything--this deck has been a fun project of mine for a while.

Oh! I was just looking into making this deck too! I really like the idea of a -1/-1 counter deck. Your decklist looks pretty good in my opinion. You have all the greatest -1 counter synergies. One card that I suggest that although does not provide -1 counters but can whipe a board if an opponent is not careful is Screams from Within. Just as a general suggestion, since most of your opponent's creatures are going to weakened, sometimes a Infest will be as strong as a Damnation. Another thing, since you are killing so many creatures, cards like Harvester of Souls that take advantage of creature deaths can be helpful. Also you can take advantage of killing opponent creatures with some graveyard shenanigans like Gruesome Encore and use them to your benefit.Jeez these suggestions are all black, if there is one thing, I wish there were more red cards that work in this type of deck. But I'm stumped on red suggestions. Otherwise, your deck looks sweet to me!!!

Hi, At first i think you don't need that many lands, about 35-38 should be enough. Also the strategy (Discard right?) isn't well constructed. I would recommend also discarding cards from your Hand and creating some Synergies with your graveyard (Reanimator stuff etc...). Here are some Cards which are relativ cheap, but could work quite well.

Discard stuff:Mind Shatter, The Rack, Shrieking Affliction, Rotting Rats

Reanimation and Graveyard stuff:Gravecrawler, Exhume, Buried Alive, Victimize, Bojuka Bog!!!, Zombify, Nighthowler

Maybe some Ramp:Commander's Sphere, Mind Stone, Sol Ring

Other good Stuff:Yawgmoth's Bargain, Mutilate, Languish, Bloodgift Demon, Profane Command, Swiftfoot Boots, Skullclamp, Avatar of Woe, Desecration Demon, Harvester of Souls, Phyrexian Reclamation, Nekrataal, Shriekmaw, Polluted Mire

I think that most of the cards are affordable and could improve this deck a lot. Adding more removal is also important. There are plenty of more cards, but this list should be enough for some new toughts :)
