Magus of the Coffers Discussion

Couple things, You need to add more mana ramp. So cards like Sol Ring and Gauntlet of Power Cabal Coffers Caged Sun most off those are pricey cards but Magus of the Coffers isn't and is a game changer for ramp. Charcoal Diamond Doubling Cube Paradise MantlePristine Talisman Crypt Ghast etc. On my page I have a list of cards saved that shows all ramp cards for each color. The next thing I would think about doing is taking out some creatures and adding some mass removal, you have a lot of single card removal but not a lot of mass removal which black is good at. The deck could be good but theres a underlining thing with most of your decks that you make, They have have a ton of general stuff that creatures, for instance you have creatures that have lifelink, deathouch, but then you also have a ton of creatures that have infect. If I was you I would think about making this deck straight infect deck, of course with that you would want to change your commander but go to or and look up edh infect and see if you can find a good mono color that will work for you.

Build drana right and you will have tons more mana than you know what to do with. Nirkana Revenant, Magus of the Coffers, Caged Sun, Crypt Ghast, Liliana of the Dark Realms, Gauntlet of Power, Extraplanar Lens, Doubling Cube, Black Market, Cabal Coffers, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Crypt of Agadeem, Vesuva. I think that is most of the big ones. You don't need all of these btw, I'm just listing options. Though I wouldn't build drana without Liliana of the Dark Realms. It is just too good to have both. On top of all that you are playing black and eldrazi die to Tragic Slips all the time. If that is looking too expensive there are plenty of cheaper options but those can also easily be the only expensive cards in the deck. Everything else could be really cheap and it will still be a good deck.

I would definitely cheapen your spells a bit. At least adding a Jet Medallion, Helm of Awakening, or just a Sol Ring would help. Magus of the Coffers and Crypt Ghast are even better. Putting in some spot removal and board hate would also serve you well. Trading out for Doom Blade, Bontu's Last Reckoning and Plague Wind would do wonders against even non-white stuff. If you want to get REALLY saucy, throw in Killing Wave and Torment of Hailfire to rub salt in their wounds.

I would take out Reiver Demon for Deathbringer Regent it hits more creatures and leaves you with a dragon.

add Bojuka Bog and Cabal Coffers and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

i would take out Quicksilver Amulet and [virtue's ruin] because you have the mana to hard cast things and ruin only hits 1/5 the creatures all your other removal does. replace them with Leyline of the Void & Helm of Obedience which is an infinite mill a player combo.

take out [heartless summoning, again, because you have so much ramp anyways. i think Isochron Scepter would be a good add because it you have instant kill spells like Go for the Throat also Victim of Night hits alot of creatures for a 2 mana instant, another good option for scepter could be Darkness.

i think you should take out Languish and add Toxic Deluge because it gets around indestructible creatures

replace Visara the Dreadful with Avatar of Woe you can get it out easier and it does the same thing.

Gravepurge can clutter your top deck if you have more than 1 targets and you have to wait to draw it. i think Animate Dead would be a better choice

take out Rag Dealer since he can die so easily and you will put in leyline anyway so you get your value. add in Exsanguinate it can get you your life back and it most cases due to your mana be able to kill your opponents.

Price of Knowledge can be kind of clunky, instead, i think Mindslicer would be better beacause it puts everyone in a top deck situation especially after youve been killing all their resources on field

other neat synergies you could try to find room for is Contamination with either [reassembling skeleton] or Bitterblossom to lock out the filthy nonblack players

another triskellion kill is Necrotic Ooze and Phyrexian Devourer. if devourer and skellion is in the gy ooze can use the devourer affect to be huge af, then use triskelions effect to remove its counters to kill someone while the devourer ability is on the stack. its kind of a last ditch sort of thing but it works

Magus of the Coffers works with your Umbral Mantle for infinite mana. also if magus and pila-pala are in the graveyard then [necrotic ooze] becomes infinite mana by itself so you can you that Exsanguinate mentioned earlier to kill your opposition

ok so ill try to cut based around your desire (100 CAD or about 80$USD).

darksteel plate--> Hammer of Nazahn or Shield of Kaldra

reliquary tower --> Darksteel Ingot

Balefire Liege--> Crackling Doom

elsepeth --> Magus of the Coffers/Priest of Gix

nin deathmantle --> Swiftfoot Boots (nin deathmantle is really bad unless you are building around it)

Gund4m18 on Wrexial, the Risen Deep edh

I Personally love Wrexial, the Risen Deep as a commander. But you're missing a few cards you could seriously abuse.You're running Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, You need to have a Cabal Coffers in there. It would speed up your ramp so hard it's not funny, You need a Magus of the Coffers, Crypt Ghast, and a Nirkana Revenant. Imagine putting nearly 80 mana into a Mind Grind! It's immediate game for someone.

You definitely should focus more on tearing your opponents deck to pieces, because if you take out all their combo pieces and win con's it's nighty night. Things like Sadistic Sacrament, Kicked, exile 15 cards!!! It's silly in commander, with Cabal Coffers You'll easily have the mana, Praetor's Grasp Could devastate them if you pick carefully, even if it's just getting rid of a card they need to win. Killing Wave Could end up being a win con for you, or a very devastating board wipe.

If you'd like to look at a Wrexial deck that focus' on mill, deck control, exiling graveyards, and just in case my creatures drop. Zombie support. Check out my Wrexial deck, Great start to one of the most broken commanders ever though!! Definite +1!

enortom: I had Blighted Bat, Anger, and Skittles in the original build, but I had no idea what to cut so I cut them since they only interact with Jace's Archivist, Anthroplasm, and Magus of the Coffers. But they could certainly make their way back in seeing as how anthroplasm and magus are part of some of my main wincons.
