Magus of the Coffers Discussion

Painful Quandary is perfect for your next tutor after destroying your opponents hands. Some cards you might want to add. Banshee of the Dread Choir, Scythe Specter and a nice combo plus fits the theme here is Bloodchief Ascension + Mindcrank one damage to any opponent will kill then or mill them and gain you lots of life. If you want protection from creatures? If your hand is empty like everyone else's hands? then Ensnaring Bridge works great here. Other good protection is Dread.

I see you have Magus of the Coffers! With only 6 swamps you can make infinite mana. Just add Sword of the Paruns and or Umbral Mantle one of these on your Magus of the Coffers and 6 swamps is infinite black mana

Madcookie Hi, thanks for your response. Please, check the deck now and let me know what you think. The deck changed quite a bit and i decided to go really budget (under 100 dollars), but honestly i don't think the deck has lost that much. Btw you said you didn't like Arguel's Blood Fast, but there are creatures in the deck that you perhaps didn't spot - 4 copies of Noxious Gearhulk. Plus we lack 2 drops and even the front side of the card isn't bad and when we flip it as a swamp it's acceptable, so i think it has potential and i want to try it out, but as you see i'm only running a copy. Maybe i could run more creatures like Gifted Aetherborn or Bone Picker.You also mentioned Magus of the Coffers, but in my opinion he's too slow and we have a rather high land count and Liliana of the Dark Realms also helps us get them. Not to say that Torment of Hailfire seems good even when X is not like 5+.

Hi, not a pro by any means but I'd change Arguel's Blood Fast for something else maybe another ob nixilis, because you pay way too much life, especially considering you have no creatures to sack or other forms of lifegain, apart from 2 Vraska's Contempt. Also since you play Torment of Hailfire(it's my personal favourite :P), maybe add some mana generators for greater effect from the spell, maybe Magus of the Coffers. Cheers

MagicalHacker and enpc: Here's my take on Anowon after further review:

Here's the thing. From the list of steady draw spells MagicalHacker provided (the best for commander), almost all of the budget ones come in the form of a non-Vampire creature. With the exception of Grave Pact and its brethren, which I own, the same can be said for most of the budget permanents that gain value off of death (most, not all, just a lot). Anowon would make me sac those on my upkeep after getting only a few extra draws worth of value. Plus, the ramp in black is super expensive. Stuff like Cabal Coffers, Caged Sun, Doubling Cube. I've got Crypt Ghast, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, and Magus of the Coffers. That's it.

Decks with green in them definitely do win the ramp race, that's for sure.

Steel Hellkite, maybe Thundering Spineback, Scavenging Ooze, Deadeye Tracker, Arcanis the Omnipotent, Soul of New Phyrexia, Soul of Ravnica, Soul of Zendikar, Soul of Innistrad, Fertilid, Cryptbreaker, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Cemetery Reaper, Silklash Spider, Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief, Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet, Memnarch, Thrasios, Triton Hero, Polukranos, World Eater, Chameleon Colossus, Heroes' Bane, Viral Drake, Ant Queen, Champion of Stray Souls, Sphinx of Magosi, Stitcher Geralf, Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter

Ruthless Knave has to have a way to go infinite with Training Grounds but I'm not sure how.

Magus of the Coffers goes infinite even without Training Grounds, but grounds does make it even better. Same with Palinchron.

Deadeye Plunderers + Training Grounds + Parallel Lives + Marrionette master is infinite damage. Replace Parallel lives with Doubling Season/Primal Vigor, or replace Master with Disciple of the Vault.

Deadeye Navigator would go infinite with a creature that produces 2 or more blue mana and a haste enabler, such as Concordant Crossroads. Kind of clunky as a 4-card combo, but it's on theme. ALso deadeye is just good to protect from removal.

Also Paradise Mantle + Pili-Pala + Training Grounds is infinite. You can replace Pili-Pala with Knacksaw Clique as well.

Remember with these infinite mana combos that infinite mana means infinite Tasigur activations, so you draw your whole deck, and you can mill everyone out with infinite Reality Shifts, which is a good removal spell on its own.

Love the deck. For the wincon with Umbral Mantle and Magus of the Coffers, I think you need 6 swamps to go infinite right? 3 to untap Magus, and 2 to activate again, and a net gain of 1 to go infinite.

Other things that combo with Sanguine Bond are Blood Tribute and Exsanguinate, which is especially brutal with Crypt Ghast, Nirkana Revenant, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Cabal Coffers and Magus of the Coffers.

Also suggest putting in that Defiant Bloodlord that's in your maybeboard, since it's ensurance for when they know to remove your Sanguine Bond or plain and simple doubling up on the damage.

Magus of the Coffers, Gauntlet of Power and/or Caged Sun for more ways to achieve big black mana.

Sanguine Bond and/or Defiant Bloodlord work well with Exquisite Blood in case you need another path to victory.

Whip of Erebos could be useful as a different way to rez your creatures and net some life on the side.
