Kambal, Consul of Allocation Discussion

Arkh0n on Black White Servos

Hey What's Up Genuine

I would recommend to take a look at Sly Requisitioner As you can Improvise her out and she gens more Servos for you also, this with your Marionette Master that way killing also gens more servo's for ya. I think also Kambal, Consul of Allocation would be good in your build running 2 should be good he comes out and puts pressure on your opponent for playing non-creatures cards and combat tricks gives you another combo strategy with Marionette Master.

As far as removal I would have the one board wipe but with you being a token gen I think you will find yourself in a positions most times where you have it and it would be a good idea but it will leave you weaker some cases not all I would just run 1 board wipe and a few Fatal Push if you have them with you sacrificing servo's you will be able to take out 4 mana creatures for one black mana.

Also for mana related matters I put in two Cultivator's Caravan and they have put in a lot of work 3 mana for a manalith and you can also crew and attack with a 5/5 creature great card atleast a great sideboard card.

Ever since adding Serra Ascendant I've been thinking about how horribly broken this can get if you would disregard the Vampire/Soldier theme... Vizkopa Guildmage's second ability, Rhox Faithmender, Mother of Runes, Kambal, Consul of Allocation to name just a few examples, I'm sure there are more. Seriously tempted to sneak the vizkopa in though!

I'm looking forward to this friday! I have pretty much everything prepared, but my playgroup wants to play with just the precons for a bit before we modify them.. so won't get to actually test my own brew just yet :'(.

So, you need more aggro here. 16 creatures is not enough especially when you're not running any removal aside from Cast Out. You should be running creatures like Plague Belcher instead of Manticore of the Gauntlet. Not everything needs to be -1/-1 counters either. I have found that going three colors with Solemnity is too rough, and have since gone to just B/W. I usually play Plague Belcher, Ammit Eternal, Dread Wanderer, Scrapheap Scrounger, and Gifted Aetherborn. You need removal spells instead of Lay Bare the Heart. Grasp of Darkness is still in standard for a month and Fatal Push is the best removal spell in standard, so you could definitely have a play set here. I do like the combination of Consuming Fervor with Solemnity, but at that point you're relying on having so many things go right. You need to have a good creature to land it on, Solemnity on board, and Consuming Fervor in hand. Kambal, Consul of Allocation is a good sideboard card but not so much mainboard. Bring him in against low creature decks. Invigorated Rampage is interesting, it's a good pump spell.

I would recommend having about ~20-24 creatures, ~24 lands, and the rest can be spells. In your sideboard you have so much to play with. Lost Legacy, Dispossess, Yahenni's Expertise, Bontu's Last Reckoning, Authority of the Consuls, Fragmentize, the list goes on. B/W have amazing sideboard cards for anything. I see you have Gideon of the Trials in your maybeboard so that could also be a good piece to add in to your main deck. I would add in two of them and test it out.

http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/17-08-17-dPL-bw-midrange/ <-- is the deck I'm currently playing with in terms of running mainboard Solemnity. Hopefully you can pull some ideas from there if it helps!

Variux on Harsh Consultation

1 week ago

Awesome deck! I have been trying to make something like this work for awhile now but haven't really found the pieces to make it super viable. I like the taxation effects of cards like Kambal, Consul of Allocation and Harsh Mentor, so making a deck around them is great.

I tried to add in Solemnity in mine to shut down any type of counter or energy decks as well. I would possibly remove Tormenting Voice for that. I have also found that too many Cast Out is a bad thing and they often end up being cycled. Perhaps you could them down and add in creatures like Ammit Eternal or cards like Grind / Dust as you already have the white/black mana. Cast Grind on cards that are either 1 toughness or cards you need to exile quickly, it has tons of value in it. Also, if you want to play more creatures that have exile effects, Angel of Condemnation is something I've been fooling around with as it's pretty much Cast Out but with the ability to exile your own cards to dodge spells, or bounce your opponents creatures back in their hand. I would probably drop Make a Stand for more creatures.

Perhaps cards like Harsh Scrutiny, Transgress the Mind, and Lay Bare the Heart would work nicely here as you can get some hand disruption in as well. Or, if you want a creature as well, Gonti, Lord of Luxury can be a big swing in momentum. Torment of Hailfire would probably work better than Torment of Scarabs because with the amount of removal and taxation effects you have, they'll probably have to take the life loss.

These are just some ideas that I've had when I fiddled around with it for awhile, hopefully they helped you a bit too.

Karzalar - Kambal, Consul of Allocation was the allstar in the 3 player games I got in. Not quite irritating enough to kill with bigger threats either on the table or in the command zone, but turn after turn it whittled my opponent's life down and boosting mine up.

Not to totally derail the conversation; but does anyone have a half descent Kambal, Consul of Allocation deck?
