Magus of the Coffers Discussion

TheMillKid on Kalitas, Aristocontrol

4 days ago

Magus of the Coffers , Nirkana Revenant , and Cabal Stronghold are also good ways to generate extra mana from your Swamps.

Blade of the Bloodchief fits great with Kalitas (who, if I recall correctly, is/was the Bloodchief of Ghet). Although creatures your opponents control won't "die" while Kalitas is out, the Zombies you make can serve as fodder to further grow your general. I'd also recommend Rogue's Passage to help your general get through when you need to. Sometimes, you can convert your zombie army into a big power spike for Kalitas, and then take out an opponent with commander damage.

Hey, so it looks like you have stuffed the deck with ways to tap down your commander, but you're only untapping during your untap step for the most part, you should look into more untap affects. You have Saddlebags, which works, but I would look to add a few more; Staff of Domination , Umbral Mantle , Thornbite Staff , Thousand-Year Elixir , Paradox Engine , also there's Maze of Ith and Thaumatic Compass  Flip. Additionally, if you're going to be tapping and untapping creatures, creatures like Avatar of Woe and Visara the Dreadful , to get more value out of those untap affects. Also, take a look at some of the Crew costs. You are low on creatures, high on Vehicles. You'll always have access to King Macar, the Gold-Cursed , but there's no guarantee you'll have creatures with Power > 2 on the battlefield on in your hand so; Aradara Express , Ballista Charger , Bomat Bazaar Barge , Conqueror's Galleon  Flip, Consulate Dreadnought , Demolition Stomper , Fell Flagship , Heart of Kiran , Irontread Crusher , Skysovereign, Consul Flagship , and Weatherlight , all are likely dead cards on the battlefield, unable to be crewed. Also, Magus of the Coffers will be high value as well, generating mass amounts of mana while also being able to untapped by untappers. You also might want to look into adding some more card draw, you have Greed , but perhaps Bloodgift Demon , Pain Seer , and Dark Tutelage are solid options. I know some of my suggestions are expensive, but I'm just trying to help optimize, and efficient untappers are going to be expensive because they're rarer.

Priest of Titania is an interesting include. I counted up 10 total elves in the deck, and I was curious how much mana you are typically getting from PoT?

A card like Crypt Ghast or Magus of the Coffers might net you more mana per tap, especially with an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth in play.

Just a thought..Like the list +1

Dont know what you are trying to do with the deck since you have several cards for others builds in here.Dont see a use for Bloodbond Vampire since you not gaining much life.Bloodhusk Ritualist for my deck wasnt that good. Kheru Bloodsucker not worth since you dont have my creatures for it.No reason for him at all unless its a fillerSkeletal Changeling.Chainer's Edict feel like there are better things that do this. Planar Bridge tutors are better. Not the best for how you have this deck built right nowBlighted Fen. Geier Reach Sanitarium dont use lol. Piranha Marsh use a Swamp. Not worth it Sorin's Thirst. Wound Reflection great card but not made for this deck.

here are some better sacrifice cards: Barter in Blood Fleshbag Marauder Innocent Blood Plaguecrafter Smallpox Tyrant's Choice

better land drawMikokoro, Center of the Sea

Some suggested creatures: Asylum Visitor Crypt Ghast Dark Impostor Drana, Liberator of Malakir Magus of the Coffers Sangromancer Skeletal Vampire Stromkirk Condemned

instant/sorcery: Beseech the Queen Blood Tribute Dark Petition Diabolic Tutor Night's Whisper Read the Bones Zombify Murder Sudden Spoiling Ultimate Price Victim of Night

artifact: Sword of the Animist

Artatras makes a lot of good points but I would mention that has strong mana production. Crypt Ghast, Nirkana Revenant, Liliana of the Dark Realms, Magus of the Coffers, Dark Ritual, Black Market, Cabal Coffers, Cabal Stronghold, and Thespian's Stage.

Caged Sun works nicely in mono and 2 color but not 3+.

This is all black mana but you will only need 3-4 blue at most in a turn. The other thing of note is that some of it is expensive and might be out of budget...

Hell no, keep Mana Web. It is SUPER good, it really messes with people and stops interaction and refrains them from casting spells on your turn. Same thing with Contamination and Infernal Darkness. I'm actually a little more iffy on Infernal Darkness, but yes I agree on more ramp. I use actually all the mana doubling black has access to because really, black is greedy we are here to trade our life to win. ALL OR NOTHING!

Some cards for mana ramp that I use is Extraplanar Lens, Caged Sun, Nirkana Revenant, Magus of the Coffers, Gauntlet of Power. Along with some additional low cost mana rocks.

I need some help deciding to remove some cards to make it 100 cards commander legal, it’s 105 right now.

Throw me some ideas to add or replace cards too. Feel free to criticize me, tell me if there should be changes. First time really trying to put a deck together. I think I’m having mana and creature cost issues? I’m not sure? Thanks!

WhatevWorks on Idea for a shadowborn apostle ...

4 months ago

Hey, here's an idea. I don't mean to completely change your idea, and you don't have to do this if you don't want to, but here it is:

Play Apostles until you get 8 of them. Sac 6 for Razaketh. Sac the other 2 for Magus of the Coffers and Umbral Mantle. Get infinite black mana, which you use to play Oona and use her ability to mill everyone out.

Also, in preview, razaketh's card link doesn't work, because it's showing up as being lowercase. He's an 8 mana demon that lets you sacrifice a creature and pay 2 life to tutor for a card and put it in your hand,
