Kessig Malcontents Discussion

sylvannos on Self-mill, Rites, & Angels

This was definitely a deck when it was in Standard.

Sam Pardee wrote this article on Human Reanimator that's reminiscent of Oops! All Spells in Legacy.

Fiend Hunter + human sac outlet + Angel of Glory's Rise = infinite loop to do whatever nonsense you want. Burning-Tree Emissary/Wild Cantor for infinite mana? Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip for infinite life and 2/2s? Death Cultist for the win?

I think the main shell of the deck is going to be:

4x Unburial Rites
4x Angel of Glory's Rise
4x Fiend Hunter
4x Cartel Aristocrat
4x Faithless Looting
4x Tormenting Voice
4x Goblin Lore
4x Golgari Grave-Troll (for maximum self-mill)

Your win conditions are between:

Now that I think about it, I might have to build this deck myself...

This looks pretty fun to play. I tried making my human deck RW a few years ago because I really liked the idea of it. Looks like you've got this honed pretty well, but I figure it doesn't hurt to make suggestions.

These all cost 3 mana though (Shrine's ability costs 3), so maybe they'd be too slow. I was going to suggest Grim Lavamancer, but I see you had one and removed it. Was it too slow to be worthwhile?

Cards you may want to add that and why

Angel of Jubilation good for your angel theme and also for your weenie theme

Angelic Purge all around decent to good removal which is extremely important in EDH

Blasphemous Act very good boardwipe

Cathars' Crusade MUST include for any weenie deck that has white

Divine Reckoning Another good boardwipe

Eerie Interlude is a maybe due to the fact that it can be used to avoid board wipes or force one sided boardwipes

Entreat the Angels straight up wincon

Fiend Hunter pretty much o-ring on a stick

Geist-Honored Monk great card for weenie strategy

Intangible Virtue could be very good with all the tokens you will be producing

Mikaeus, the Lunarch it fits the flavor very well by being the Lunarch and it fits the weenie theme

Silverblade Paladin could be amazing for your deck and can be used as a win con with gisela hitting for 20 commander damage.

Terminus potential board wipe

Thalia's Lieutenant works like champion with the upside of also hitting all you creature if you already have a lot of tokens or creatures

Cards that you may want to remove and why

Dauntless Cathar and Nearheath Chaplain there are much better token generators and it takes the place of a better card plus the tokens are not even human

Kessig Malcontents all around a meh card that just doesn't really meet par

Riot Ringleader again meh with not enough upside to justify putting it in the deck

Oppressive Rays great card in most causal formats but not really EDH

Vigilante Justice in reality it just doesn't do as much as you really want it to do and will be a dead card

Lightning Axe could be good but I think you can find better options

Rush of Adrenaline and Strength of Arms meh cards that may just end up being dead cards which are worse

Neglected Heirloom  Flip not enough uses for it and ends up being a dead card many times

Thatcher Revolt could be good but in my opinion could be replaced with a stronger card

Thank you for the feedback, MasterXandar. At times, I fall in love with a combo, even it doesn't make a lot of sense, hence the inclusion of Kessig Malcontents, but I think you're right; I will cut it. Any additional suggestions? Thanks again.

the Kessig Malcontents, while being powerful doesn't do justice being the only red card. things you can do to fix this: add more red cards like Lightning Bolt and add the full playset of Kessig Malcontents. cut red entirely, you don't need it in this deck.

You've also got your Human tribal equipments: Avacyn's Collar, Sharpened Pitchfork, Silver-Inlaid Dagger if you're looking for a Voltron sort of build. I forgot to mention Kessig Malcontents in my last comment as well.

Hi Jimmy_Chinchila and thanks for your propositions.

Regarding Ajani's Pridemate, I really like the card but I have a little preference for my human sub-theme with Cavern of Souls, Champion of the Parish and Kessig Malcontents.

Serra Ascendant and Felidar Sovereign are excellent in the pure Soul Sisters shell but this version gains less life so these cards are less reliable.

Soulfire Grand Master is a very nice idea, I could test it if I get one :-)

Swap Kessig Malcontents and Warstorm Surge for Solemn Simulacrum and more ramp/draw/tutor?
