Horobi, Death's Wail Discussion

Fumiko the Lowblood . Creates an interesting dynamic on the board every time your commander is out. Lots of neat effects to pair it with, whether you go for untap restrictions like Smoke or Static Orb , or just want to cause games to end quickly with things like Furnace of Rath

Also a big fan of Horobi, Death's Wail . Pack it full of every single death black effect you can find, like Death Match Death Pits of Rath , Mindslicer Pestilence and whatever else you can find. You'll win far more games than you imagine as you create a board state so toxic no one can develop properly. You don't even need free target effects, but it helps.

Kaervek the Merciless is another general that allows some unique building imo. Stuff yourself full of board wipes like Pyroclasm Anger of the Gods Toxic Deluge Earthquake and similar to keep the board clear while you build up to 7 mana. Stuff your deck full of fatties who can survive small red sweeper effects, and punish players with the Kaervek trigger and your fatties.

For a serious competitive answer, look at Tasigur, the Golden Fang . Highly political deck with a strong color identity, and lots of different infinite combos available as your means of winning. The GY recursion allows you to play control in a format that is traditionally hard to play control in.

Paeldroth: Exactly my thought. Chainer's actually pretty easy to build around btw.

I've got another pairing: Toshiro Umezawa and Horobi, Death's Wail

I recently build my own version of it, but I'd love to see what you can come up with for Horobi, Death's Wail .

So I recently got a Horobi, Death's Wail and am really struggling with how to build a commander deck around it. The following card would make it a lot easier while not making it entirelly op:

Surrounding Darkness 1BB



Creatures you control have hexproof.

If you don't control a black creature, sacrifice Surrounding Darkness.

Is the darkness hiding its horros from us, or is itprotecting us from the horrors?

Do the same thing as me: Create a card that would help me build a new deck, no matter which format.

Just realized you're running Necropotence, which seems pretty odd next to Yawgmoth since it'll exile everything you discard to his ability. Also, Horobi, Death's Wail seems like he'd be perfect next to Yawgmoth to just make Yawg kill everything in a one shot.

I'm going to throw out Soltari Guerrillas as some seriously random, anti-illusion tech. The oracle text makes it a free, targeting, activated ability. It is traditionally combined with Horobi, Death's Wail or Cowardice to great effect. Play your cards right and it could easily be a one-sided board wipe.
