Diamond Mare Copper Gnomes?

I imagine we can cut a bunch of cards for stuff like Treacherous Blessing, maybe even Liliana's contract?

I'm not really comfortable with so few tutors for Lich's Mastery - is there any way where resolving Behold the Beyond just wins us the game?

Mausoleum Secrets into Mortal Combat ^_^

Sidisi, Undead Vizier

Demonic Consultation

is it worth it to us to run Liliana Vess?

dirty doomsday pile: Infernal Contract into Sacrifice or whatever ritual, then Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Viscera Seer + Walking Ballista

As we mentioned, I think the best thing for Thrax himself is to get him on the field a turn or two early. Mana rocks are going to be the thing, since we can't make extra land drops with green. Hopefully we can get Thrax down turn 5 or so, so rocks costing 4 or less are where it's at. My favorites are Chromatic Lantern, signets such as Izzet Signet, and others that make your off-colors since we're focusing black with our mana. Altars such as Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar might be the end goal here, given the sacrifice subtheme with the Pact effects.

Some extra card draw might help get us the mana and rocks we need on-curve. God-Eternal Bontu pairs with pact effects for a blowout, Cryptbreaker turns your bodies into cards and your useless cards into bodies, and Midnight Reaper/ Undead Augur are less dangerous to you with your sacrifice outlets to make sure they don't hurt you too much. Corpse Harvester plays triple duty as ramp, tutor, and sac outlet.

I'm going to further push the sacrifice subtheme and see if we can shore up one of the weaknesses Thrax shares with Savra...large creature armies. Archfiend of Depravity and Vona's Hunger will stop a billion saprolings from getting you down, and Butcher of Malakir seems like a good redundancy piece. And it might not be the best, but I really like Syphon Flesh in here.

Also, if you're going for stealth Liliana tribal, you're missing OG Liliana Vess :P I also like Angrath, Captain of Chaos in here (I wouldn't even make a token with him...just leave him up as a harder-to-kill enchantment)...probably better than most of your Lili options if you're not married to the 'tribe'. Last Hope and Heretical Healer would be my picks for the weak links of the planeswalkers you do play.

THERE ARE NO INSTANTS IN THIS DECK?! Let's grab some versatile ones, so I don't start thinking I can free-roll on your turn. Crosis's Charm, Soul Manipulation, Grixis Charm, Silumgar's Command, and Lazotep Plating are some of my picks for cards that can always find a use.

Other cards I'm unimpressed with: Cruel Reality, Army of the Damned, Skull Storm, Nightmare Lash, Mayhem Devil, Nekusar, the Mindrazer

Hi there,

Just noticed you upvoted my sliver deck. Thank you. Had a look at this and I would definitely look at your land count and ramp. Would suggest about 36 to 37. There is also some real good vampires out there. Here's a few:

Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Anowon, the Ruin Sage, Ascendant Evincar, Butcher of Malakir, Elenda, the Dusk Rose,

And many others. Also some more draw effects like Phyrexian Arena and tutors like Diabolic Tutor, Demonic Tutor and even things like Liliana Vess.

Hope this helps

Hello there! I really love your deck, looks really fun to play and out of the ordinary EDH schemes!

Anyway, i'm here to ask you about some cards that i think will just be fine in this kind of deck.

Soothsaying Seems really on topic with it, you know, it's odd, it's a 1 mana drop and let you Shuffle and manipulate the topdeck. Talking about Enchantments, i also think Necropotence can be a thing. You know, you don't draw, but Yennett trigger in combat and does what she have to. The new Talisman of Hierarchy Seems also Good for mana Balance. I know it's veeeery expensive, but you also have Imperial Seal for topdeck tutor. Also, if you have the Isochron Scepter gaving Dramatic Reversal can also be good, for a infinite mana-combo that can be used to pull out something with Soothsaying . In the end, Aminatou, the Fateshifter could also be a nice add for topdeck manipulation and blink things like Liliana Vess and Tezzeret the Seeker for other tutors and Mana Vault or Grim Monolith for untap.

Cheers and keep up the good work!

Liliana Vess is my big, big second ability planeswalker. I genuinely can't remember her Ultimate and tend to switch her discard ability with Liliana of the Veil .

I feel my favorite archtype: Stax doesn't have an adequate planewalker. My current decks feature Teferi, Hero of Dominaria , Teferi, Time Raveler , and Dovin Baan in one, and all the Elspeths in the other, as it is a more sacrifice and token oriented build (proliferating Smokestack is super fun, especially if you have loads of tokens).

Venser, Lord of the Ephemeral

Legendary Planeswalker - Venser

+1: Exile target permanent you neither own nor control. Return it to the battlefield under its owner's control.

-1: Until you next turn, whenever a player taps a permanent for mana, that permanent gains phasing.

-10: You get an emblem with "Whenever a permanent enters the battlefield under an opponent's control, that player exiles a permanent they control."

This would be absolutely ideal for a stax build.

another favorite of mine, which features in my stax builds, is Mass Land Destruction. I want either or Commander (Creature or Planeswalker) for MLD.

I use Selvala, Explorer Returned for mine I've also seen Golos, Tireless Pilgrim , The Gitrog Monster , Zo-Zu the Punisher , Lord Windgrace .

Jace_Nalaar you are absolutely awesome for this bro!

Now I do already have Increasing Vengeance in the deck. My meta usually runs 6-8 players and usually always blind. as for Consecrated Sphinx the last game I played I literally drew 20 cards before my next turn. (Thank God for Reliquary Tower )

I keep forgetting about Temple of the False God TBH I'm putting it in my buy list as we speak.

  1. Creatures: I have never heard of Backdraft Hellkite will def sub out for Hypersonic Dragon or try to work both in somehow.

  2. Instant/sorcs: Chain of Vapor Looks fun and could be interesting if they wanna copy. - With my larger play group Counterflux is needed to knock out the large or confusing stacks that are played to maintain order in a sense. - And you're probably right on the other recs (except Increasing Vengeance ). Thank you Jace_Nalaar

  3. Artifacts: Nothing to change here for my personal playstyle

4. Narset, Parter of Veils Will be an amazing partner in this deck, but not in place of Liliana Vess . I will work her in though.

  1. Decree of Pain is HEAVY but can't really afford Damnation but I would like a cheaper board wipe, only reason I run it is for the draw. - Cabal Ritual is on the buy list can't wait to put it in. Entomb is wanted just need an excuse to break down for it.
  2. Narset's Reversal , Cabal Ritual , Dramatic Reversal , Isochron Scepter , Laboratory Maniac and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries are currently next in line for purchase

Jace_Nalaar please let me know what you think. Thank you
