Darth_Savage on Aggro Mill Trap

1 year ago

Mill is a difficult thing to win with, but I have a couple of suggestions for you...

  • The strongest mill decks I've seen use Mesmeric Orb, if your on a budget Memory Erosion or Altar of the Brood might be ok but are nowhere near the power of the Orb.
  • Fraying Sanity should be a 4 of, this is one of the best mill cards printed in a long time.
  • Tome Scour and Mind Sculpt should be replaced with 4 Breaking / Entering.
  • Fetch Lands, they are pricey but they let you trigger Hedron Crab twice, this is incredibly useful.

The other option is to up the aggro side of this deck, maybe try to use horror tribal 4x Hunted Horror, 4x Thing in the Ice Hidden Horror and to make it all click 4x Torpor Orb.

Hope this helps

GobboE on Drop a Draco Challenge

I actually used to have a black deck like that, I do not have the expensive cards, but this deck was fast and mono black coloured.

It had, among some other things, 4 Hidden Horror, 4 Body Snatcher, 4 Dark Ritual, 4 Animate Dead, 4 Dance of the Dead, and a combination of Scion of Darkness, Draco, and Nicol Bolas (not hard casting him anyway). I think I also had Bog Witch, and Jet Medallion in there....and certainly removal (Terror, and Dark Banishing at the time) to remove pesky blockers

Play was simple:Either turn 1 Dark ritual > Hidden Horror and then turn two animate Draco and start swinging, and remove blockers

Or turn 2 Dark ritual > Body Snatcher and then as above (if body snatchers get's killed it's even easier)

You virtually always have drawn some ramp so a turn three big bad monster was certainly no exception.

Arby_Q on Does this Alesha need a ...

Firestorm is easily the best discard effect to use with Alesha. Even if you miss your fourth mana, you can clear a path for her as well as pull something out of the graveyard.
Avatar of Discord and Hidden Horror are decent as well.

I feel like some of your targeted removal could be removed (haha get it), because in EDH Damnation is much better than Doom Blade. However, this depends entirely on your playgroup and whether you have regular games with the same people. If a lot of your playgroup runs creature light decks, targeted removal is fine, but if there are a few creature heavy decks, wrath effects like Damnation is fine. And I know that wrath effects kill Meren of Clan Nel Toth, and I hate using wrath effects for that reason also, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. Now I know that you already have Damnation but I am just pointing out the things that I have noticed running a Golgari EDH deck. Hidden Horror, Slum Reaper and those kind of cards are good, but I feel like you need less of those and more Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Smothering Abomination and tokens for days. Also, a good card to fuel Meren of Clan Nel Toth is Sadistic Hypnotist. I run one in my Nath of the Gilt-Leaf deck, and while I use it for the discard, you could use it for the mass free sacrifice, where the discard is just a bonus. This sacrifice will also help for Dictate of Erebos, Grave Pact as well as Golgari Germination, which while it doesn't allow you to go infinite like I used to think it did, still nets you a bunch of sacrifice fuel, which gets you a bunch of experience counters, a bunch of (kind of) removal, and a bunch of discard.

No data for this card yet.
