Kuro, Pitlord Discussion

Mofogigas on Death and Demons

mfogle you'll definitely like my most recent revisions.

I've replace Archdemon of Unx and Eater of Hope and Carnifex Demon for Kuro, Pitlord. Acrhdemon is to slow, eater needs to many resources to be efficient and carnifex has the problem of hitting my commander and has limited kill potential and use.

I've included Secret Salvage which is ideal for a shadowborn EDH deck and Archfiend of Despair shuts down life gain while doubling life loss.

Best of all I dropped Bloodgift Demon for Krav, the Unredeemed who is perfect for a shadowborn deck.

Lastly I think I'll swap Reprocess for Liliana's Contract when I am able to, reprocess can net you more cards but you have to have the available creatures to sac, versus contract will net you four cards no matter what, plus the additional win con makes it an excellent card for this build.

Let me know what kind of build you go with when its finished, I'd recommend all of the above mentioned.

MisterMomotaro on Torgaar rise, die, repeat

I like it, there's some spicy shit here. I'm sure you know you can target yourself with Torgaar to gain life, so you should be running more pay life effects. Necropotence and Greed are amazing. Carrion Howler and Kuro, Pitlord might be good too. Vedalken Orrery goes in almost every deck. Playing Torgaar at instant speed seems really good. I'm not a fan of Yahenni's Expertise. Toxic Deluge is just better. Empty the Pits is also bad. Too expensive and you don't want Delve to be exiling your stuff. I would also take out some of the vanilla creatures to make room. Finally, Cabal Coffers and Cabal Stronghold (the new one from Dominaria.)

It might be interesting and more flavorful to do more of a life-pay type deck, and then use life switching cards. It fits the theme of Vona more, while also being a very curious strategy.

You would still have lifelink cards, but be a little less focused on having the highest life total, but instead use your life to gain the advantage.

Well, you can target Shaman with its own ability to get the triggers from Daru, or you could use Lightning Greaves to equip and unequip itself from Daru/Shaman, though you require another creature in play.

You could also sac the boosted creature to Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, or Disciple of Griselbrand, you could also attack with the creature to kill a player and using Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper to gain life from that. You can then pour that into Aetherflux, Kuro, Pitlord, or Ad Nauseam

ImtheRealBear on U/B Consume Spirit

I like the deck! I have deck similar with the goal of exsanguinate. personally I prefer Profane Command over Consume Spirit as it has more utility and will let you get your critters back into the field. To me Kuro, Pitlord seems a little counterproductive as he sucks up mana every turn making you blast for less with exsanguinate. I'm also a fan of Crypt Ghast or Nirkana Revenant. here is a link to my deck if you want to check it to see if you get any ideas from it: Black Ramp. Good luck with it!

Good to see AEtherling and Torchling in here, definite must includes. Jace's Archivist also finds a nice home here.

Kuro, Pitlord and Demonic Hordes can lock opponents out pretty well. Helldozer or Trench Wurm also smash lands if you're into that.

Does exiling Fatestitcher give him the Unearth ability? If so, thats fantastic!
