burferking on Mathas, Bitter Hugs

I like your deck! It has a similar flavor to my Grixis Twisted Group Hug (No Pain, No Gain!), where I can help with cards and effects, but at a cost. The idea was a Zedruu the Greathearted , but with black, black being my favorite Mtg color. I invite you to take a look at my deck and draw some inspiration from it. One of the principles of the deck is that I don't target destroy/exile/counterspell anything; "that wouldn't be nice, from a good guy that helps you, eh?". I personnally found that Illicit Auction and Pain's Reward are such fun cards and can hurt a player so bad at the same time ! You could also consider any cards with the Join Forces and Tempting Offer mechanics. If I do help someone, it is not everybody, like I originally would have like. So to be honest, I may rename my deck "Grixis Bitter Hugs" -because I think it is more accurate than "Grixis Twisted Group Hug"- if you don't mind. While commenting, I took time to update my deck's description, which was pretty much empty before lol

You could also add Anvil of Bogardan , Oracle's Vault , Outpost Siege , Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip, Bloodgift Demon , Indulgent Tormentor , Well of Lost Dreams ... Phyrexian Arena is a must, Rhystic Study is a beast (but pricy $), Mystic Remora is great and you could add also Braid of Fire , comboing with Luminarch Ascension . For more lands, add Land Tax , Knight of the White Orchid , Weathered Wayfarer , Sword of the Animist , Thaumatic Compass  Flip, Journeyer's Kite ...

Would be fun backed with Indulgent Tormentor to force opponents to burn through their creature base. Add Archfiend of Depravity for extra oppression.

  • Timmy, this is a Standard thread...

Yeah? Just following DragonSliver09's lead ;)

Captivating Vampire would be disgustingly awesome. Also Archfiend of Depravity would be cool, though I may prefer Indulgent Tormentor for the engine.

I would cut Bloodgift Demon , Demon of Catastrophes , Indulgent Tormentor , Ring of Xathrid , and Pristine Talisman . They are your weakest cards and you have plenty of better draw power.

Hey friend

You seem to really like card draw, so i'm surprised you missed Indulgent Tormentor !

This deck is pretty budget, but if you want a great comander draw engine consider saving for Rhystic Study .

If you are aiming to do some damage with AoE B Enchantments, consider getting Painful Quandary .

If you want to go a bit more discard route, how about Quest for the Nihil Stone , Wheel of Torture , Shrieking Affliction . (you'd need cards like Guul Draz Specter , Stronghold Rats , Urgoros, the Empty One .)

I feel like card draw is less valuable then you might think. At some point i wonder what it is you want to draw with your card draw, and why having card draw would be better than having said card in your deck. I wouldn't expect any card draw in a deck with your commander. If you'd have to make this deck without any card draw, what would it look like? What problem then, are you solving by adding card draw?

GL with your deck and playing mtg!

Suggestions: If you're running payoffs for death triggers and sacrifice outlets, you might want to put in some things you want to sacrifice. Or ways to recur things. Either way, I think we're angling toward a black stompy deck with removal and commander synergy. We should be able to budget-ize this pretty nicely by focusing it as well.

Some cards to try: Maralen of the Mornsong , Wound Reflection , Lashwrithe , Dread Presence , Vilis, Broker of Blood , Scheming Symmetry , Ever After , Killing Wave , Decree of Pain , In Garruk's Wake , Pestilence Demon , Indulgent Tormentor , Painful Quandary , Silence the Believers

LadyZ thanks for the suggestions! Much appreciated :).

Despark is defenitely cool, but I don't want to be too heavy on spot removal, as I already run Anguished Unmaking (being able to hit permanents lower than 3CMC) and Vindicate (being able to hit lands). The real question is how relevant it is to be able to exile permanents that cost lest than 3CMC, so I might switch Anguished Unmaking for Despark

Sower of Discord is a great card, but I don't like that it puts you in a position where you immediately make two enemies, as this deck cannot really deal with being the archenemy.

Utvara Hellkite is in the maybeboard, as I know it's one of the strongest Dragons in the game, it also costs 8 mana however...

I've played before with Indulgent Tormentor and have to say that I found it a bit underwhelming, giving players a choice will always result in the choice that's least beneficial for you (them losing 3 life) which is hardly worth it for a 5 mana 5/3

Cheers!
