Hellkite Charger Discussion
1 week ago
Alright, so taking a look at this, I see a few cards that can be immediately cut. Ruin Rat is just bad. Doomfall doesn't work in EDH, Nef-Crop Entangler has better cards, Toil isn't great here unless you're pointing it at yourself, Tresspasser's Curse doesn't help you get big things out, Horror of the Broken Lands is just bad, Carnage Gladiator is kinda meh, Prismatic Lens is weak AF, Kozilek's Pathfinder just doesn't really do anything here outside of being a colorless mana sink (which you don't really have support for) and Desecration Demon will likely never attack.
Nef-Crop Entangler out, Nettle Drone in. Nettle Sentinel is bonkers and I KNOW you have a copy of it somewhere (I legit gave my copy of it to you).
Toil out, Bloodgift Demon in. Not only is Bloodgift a decent beater, but he gives you card draw. Basically a dude version of Phyrexian Arena with a side of hitting opponents too.
Ruin Rat out, literally anything else in. Probably Endbringer, simply because I think you have my copy of it. Use it.
Horror of the Broken Lands out, Conduit of Ruin in. Bad card out, better card in. Tutor + cost reduction is nutty.
Trespasser's Curse out, Combustible Gearhulk in. Not only do you need more dudes, but you need better dudes. Combustible shouldn't be hard to find rn and is very powerful in a deck with Eldrazi.
Carnage Gladiator out, Duplicant in. It's free removal. Just do it.
Kozilek's Predator out, Pestilence Demon in. This Demon can make multiple opponents lose a lot of life very quickly, as well as nuke crappier creatures. It also beats for 7.
Desecration Demon out, Pathrazer of Ulamog in. Self-explanatory.
Rakazeth's Rite out (it's a bit expensive for a tutor), Crypt Ghast in. You'll appreciate the ramp as well as the Extort triggers.
Doomfall out, Hero's Downfall in. I think I have one lying around and Downfall is just better.
Loxodon Warhammer out, Neheb, the Eternal in. Someone'll get it eventually, and he's just baller.
Seer's Lantern out, Sin Prodder in. Yes, I hate Sin Prodder. But goddamn if it isn't fun AF to nug someone for 12 off a blind flip, and synergistic in this deck as well.
Traveler's Amulet out, Hellkite Charger in. You know you want infinite combats with Neheb. Don't deny it.

Extra combat phase really play well into this guys strengths so here are the two best options Aggravated Assault and Hellkite Charger. Also this guy has good base stats, but no real keywords so an equipment package is a good option as well Sword of Vengeance is a nice budget option.

If your running this type of commander you'll want cards that give you multiple combat steps, and things that protect your creatures. Dolmen Gate protects neheb and all of your other creatures as they attack. Breath of Fury, Hellkite Charger and Scourge of the Throne are all pretty good for extra turns, with hellkite charger being the best for your deck in my opinion. Dragonmaster Outcast,Urabrask the Hidden and Hammer of Purphoros are all solid adds aswell. Wheel affects should also be considered to get fuel for your ramp: Magus of the Wheel, Wheel of Fortune and Reforge the Soul are great. I'd also suggest Staff of Nin as it's a mana rock when Neheb is out and Infiltration Lens to encourage your opponents not to block. Stand or Fall is also good in this respect. Lastly consider Rakka Mar, Mind's Eye and Knollspine Dragon as they are just genuinely good cards.

Thanks seshiro_of_the_orochi I think aggregated assault does the same thing but I'm seriously thinking about Hellkite Charger. And Daedalus19876 I'll take a look at that land base later. I agree mine needs to be more stable.
Thanks for the suggestion nap Atavistic. I agree Ivy Lane Denizen was a card left over from the first draft when I misread my commander and thought she said sac And get a cat. That card does need to go. Worldly is a great suggestion as is Berserkers' Onslaught. I like adding xenagos but I think I'll keep Domri for now. Thanks for all the great advise!

Thank you very much for your thoughts Reverie42,
Hellkite Charger and Neheb, the Eternal are nice, but in order to accomodate them I'd have to cut out Giants or other creatures that provide crucial supporting roles. But I'll definitely keep them in mind for future decks involving extra attacks, so thanks for that! :)
Desolation Giant has been in and out of this deck a few times. Eventually I decided to scrap him because he didn't give Kalemne an experience counter and I wasn't too fond of having to pay a kicker cost to actually make this creature's casting worthwhile.
Granted, Sram, Senior Edificer only has fourteen possible targets in this deck. But due to my equipment and aura tutors, I always end up using him and that has helped. Also, Sun Titan has helped me out in this regard. People kept trying to vaporize some of my more potent equipment, and Sun Titan's attacks kept bringing them back. In these situations, it's great to have Sram on the field.
Thanks for bringing the Lairwatch Giant + Godsend combination to my attention! As a matter of fact, there may be a Giant that's even more awesome than Lairwatch to combo with Godsend: Hundred-Handed One. It requires making him monstrous for the real pay off, but damn ... :)
My playgroup is very much into the Conspiracy set, so I'm not sure whether adding only Protector of the Crown would really help.
