Kheru Mind-Eater Discussion

Drakon562 on C17 Vampires - What are ...

I personally don't think Pawn of Ulamog deserves a spot in the deck, but that's because I'm playing a full out aggressive deck. I don't really like the life-gain aspect of vampires if it's front and center, so Licia, Sanguine Tribune, Tithe Drinker, Falkenrath Noble, and Vampire Nighthawk came out as well. I also cut Vein Drinker, Skeletal Vampire, Blood Baron of Vizkopa, Kheru Mind-Eater, Bloodhusk Ritualist, Crimson Honor Guard and Sangromancer.

All of this is what I cut from my deck, because its a beatdown/swarm deck. Things that take away from that don't deserve a spot. Butcher of Malakir is still in because I can kill my things to make them lose things, so I can punch them.

All and all, I think that you definitely should play some games with the precon, and see what does and doesn't work for you. I have a friend who plays Licia, Sanguine Tribune and goes for more of a pillowfort/lifegain deck. It's really up to you. Hope this helped.

I'd personally suggest Kheru Mind-Eater and Sheoldred- anything that cost too much mana for what it does.

Bloodline Keeper  Flip isn't here to be a lord, it's here because it takes over the game with tokens; the transformation ability is just a nice bonus. Kheru Mind-Eater is definitely legal and I think it's pretty good; there's a lot of removal in the deck to keep the number of opposing blockers low enough for it to get through consistently. Reanimator is, unfortunately, a pretty big part of the format, so the Relics are kind of necessary.

I think you're right about the Captivating Vampire; I added it for the creature stealing ability but if I've already got 5 Vampires out, it's almost always just going to be win-more.

I didn't include Gatekeeper because seemed like a bad idea in a 3-colour deck but it recently occurred to me that I've only got 2 lands in the deck that don't produce , so it's actually probably fine. I'll try to make space to give it and Asylum Visitor a test.

Rhadamanthus on Another Grusilda, Monster Masher question ...

The problem is that as-written the abilities on Kheru Mind-Eater are linked, meaning the second ability specifically refers to cards exiled with the first ability and nothing else. I think it's reasonable to assume that a full set of "proper" rules for combining creatures would have to account for this, meaning the answer to your question would unfortunately be "no".

Yes, the Kheru Mind-Eater's "play exiled cards" ability isn't tied to the combat damage ability, so you can play any cards exiled by it regardless of how those cards were exiled (and the same is true for the unholy abomination you're creating with Grusilda).

Grusilda, Monster Masher can grab two creatures from graveyards and combine them.

If I combine Kheru Mind-Eater with Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, can I play the cards that Kherumog, the Ceaseless Mind-Eater exiled with its on-attack trigger?

Thanks in advance!

The new cards from Commander 2017 aren't labelled as legal for eternal formats such as Legacy and Vintage, example: Kheru Mind-Eater.
