some combos;

Leyline of the Void + Bridge from Below You get zombies all the time, they can't kill bridge from below.

Howling Mine + Font of Mythos + Dictate of Kruphix = 5 card draw a turn

Howling Mine + Font of Mythos + Dictate of Kruphix + Notion Thief = 4 card draw a turn for you for each opponent.

Dream Halls + Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur + (Any blue colour spell) to cheat him in quickly.

Psychosis Crawler is a star especially if you get a lot of draw and the Reliquary Tower or Venser's Journal on board.

Xenograft + Ogre Slumlord or Xathrid Necromancer for mini tribal, choose rats for deathtouch everything or choose humans to convert anything of yours that dies to a 2/2 zombie.

Increasing Ambition + Dralnu, Lich Lord cast it once, then cast it again from the GY with Dralnu for the cheaper flashback cost.

I touched on tutoring, you have vampiric which is a great card. I would also work towards Demonic Tutor .

Some budget tutors that are good are. Increasing Ambition , Demonic Collusion , Diabolic Revelation , and Diabolic Tutor they are good.

I do the black ramp/tutor thing in my mono black deck. Feelin' Triskey pretty much 2 combos in there to end things, and ramp in to stuff. Work in progress, still trying to get some of the stuff I suggested to you.

I am not suggesting that you change half your deck. I am just going over the things my brother, and I have worked on for his deck, and giving you the info so you can work yours out. If you can think of any questions ask me. I think you have a good base, and with time will really work it in to a solid deck. Did you want to go combo route, good cards route, or something different?

Violent Ultimatum Wrath of God Supreme Verdict Terminus for more removal. Mana ramp Cultivate Farseek Explosive Vegetation Kodama's Reach Exploration Also might want to add in some mana rocks such as Thran Dynamo Gilded Lotus . Search cards Tooth and Nail Diabolic Tutor Increasing Ambition Treasured Find . Just a suggestion though there's more you can add in or take out.

smithereen on Progenitus's Army

Sheoldred, Whispering One is pretty much good in decks that can cast her. Maelstrom Wanderer and Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker are some of the strongest bombs in the game and are affordable.

Fist of Suns is insane in Five-Color Bombs - and especially if you have Tezzeret to fetch it up for you. Since your general is Progenitus , cheaty stuff like Sorin Markov or Magister Sphinx can set up quick kills.

I'd look in to some big draw spells like Sphinx's Revelation or Blue Sun's Zenith , or super-tutors like Increasing Ambition .

b1narybab3y on Orzhov EDH (Need Help and Recommend Cuts Please!)

Okie doke! First off, what do you want this deck to do? It seems like you just want Orzhov good stuff with some token elements. Is this deck for 1v1 or multiplayer?

I recommend cutting down on some of the Planeswalkers. They are super fun to play, but you don't get most of their value in EDH. I would cut Ajani, Vess, and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad.

In the sorceries department, I think you should cut Heroes' Remembered, Duress, Planar Cleansing, and Lingering Souls. Planar Cleansing doesn't really help you out as you have lots of enchantments and artifacts. You could look into some black board wipes that are asymmetrical. I also think you should maybe cut Sorin's Vengeance. Just depends on how the deck shapes up. I would suggest adding in Debt to the Deathless , Unburial Rites , Increasing Ambition , Obzedat's Aid , and Toxic Deluge for sure. Reign of the Pit is good if you are planning on doing lots of multiplayer.

Some really good Instants to think about is Return to Dust , Mortify , and Condemn .

I would not run Rest in Peace personally, that's more up to you. Black just has so many options for creature recursion it seems wasteful to me. Haha. Some good enchantments to think about are Grave Betrayal , Dictate of Erebos , and Debtors' Knell .

Artifacts. Well of Lost Dreams isn't the best, just a mana sink. Extraplanar Lens can help out your opponents, so I'd be careful with that. Gilded Lotus would be good since you have an overall pretty high mana cost deck. It is pretty vulnerable to removal though.

Creatures! My favorite part of any deck. I'd cut Royal Assassin, Keening Apparition, and maybe Hypnotic Specter. I'm not a huge fan of discard in EDH. I don't really like Fiendslayer Paladin or Desecration Demon in EDH, but if they work for you they work! Gray Merchant of Asphodel is a very good common if this deck ends up being a bit more black heavy. Bloodgift Demon is really good card draw in black. Sheoldred, Whispering One is a staple for me in decks with Black. Erebos, God of the Dead also is some good card draw and has the bonus of being indestructible. Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts is a great beater, not to mention she terrifies people. Serra Ascendent is really good in 1v1 early on, but is really unfortunate to draw late game. Avatar of Woe is someone to look at as a replacement of Visara the Dreadful. Just up to you. I love Twilight Shepherd . Sepulchral Primordial can be a blast in multiplayer!

Hope this helps you some! I love Orzhov. Good choice. :)

If you wanted to go to a combo deck it would not be too hard. Just get more tutors, and put the combos there.

Leyline of the Void , Helm of Obedience

Hinder /Spell Crumple , Tunnel Vision

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed , Triskelion

Those would all be nice options. You could also do the Sword of the Meek stuff in there.

Increasing Ambition , Demonic Collusion , Diabolic Revelation are all good budget options. Price
