Magus of the Coffers Discussion

Suns_Champion on FROM THE DEPTHS I COME!

Hi! Some thoughts:

Your curve is really high. You should probably add more ramp like Cabal Coffers, Crypt Ghast, Magus of the Coffers, Solemn Simulacrum, Thran Dynamo, Hedron Archive and Bontu's Monument

Additionally, you'll want some ways to get your creatures into the graveyard. Buried Alive and Entomb.

Hope some of that helps!

Maybe a Crypt Ghast with an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Cabal Coffers and/or Magus of the Coffers? Since you don't play budget, Nirkana Revenant is also a good choice. I also like Dauthi Embrace to make a creature virtually unblockable.

Maybe try Magus of the Coffers for some ramp into your Torment of Hailfire

deckbuilding takes a lot of time and testing to get better at, ive built hundreds of decks over my 10 years of magic and i still have room for improvement, so don't lose hope!

even though a lot of power comes from pricy staples, there is budget options for more casual playgroups, for example Demonic Tutor can be substituted with Diabolic Tutor or Increasing Ambition

as far as wincons, yes, you need more than just BloodBond and tokens.

as far as token combo, im pretty sure you can get lethal damage using Blood Artist to combo with Ashnod's Altar and Nim Deathmantle to get infinite damage/life, because you sac a vamp+ a vamp token to altar for 4, use the 4 to activate deathmantle on the nontoken vampire, triggering blood artist infinitely, add Grave Pact/Dictate of Erebos and it also forces opponents to sacrifice an infinite amount of creatures, or you add Mana Echoes for infinite colorless mana!

combos like this are made MUCH easier with Anointed Procession, since it doubles your token production

you can also win via a soft lock that makes you impossible to kill, such as Solemnity + Phyrexian Unlife

sadly not a lot of vampires are combo-friendly cards, so you're going to want to run a lot of tutors, creature protection and noncreature combos alongside the trusty vampire armada. the most fitting combo for your deck would definitely be lifesteal, having an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers in play usually wins you the game if you use the mana to cast an Exsanguinate or Debt to the Deathless, especially with land copying coffers like Vesuva, Thespian's Stage or Mirage Mirror

Magus of the Coffers is alsp a budget friendly version of cabal coffers, and allows you to run 2 of them

also if your main wincon right now is bloodbond life combo, id recommend more ways to fetch it like the above mentioned black tutors, as well as Idyllic Tutor and Gamble

Suns_Champion: Alloy Myr also works to power up Puppet Conjurer for infinite. Similar to Puppet Conjurer you also have Ghoulcaller Gisa, Lich Lord of Unx, and Myr Propagator,, although those last two are gonna need a lot of mana dorks. I can think of Leaden Myr, Silver Myr, Alloy Myr, Apprentice Wizard (if you have a producer it gets you to the for Propagator), Crystalline Crawler, Cultivator Drone (Propagator only), Gold Myr, Magus of the Coffers, Lotus Guardian (painfully expensive), Opaline Unicorn, Scuttlemutt, Vesper Ghoul (although limited), and Kozilek's Channeler.

Another possibility I forgot is Drana's Chosen. The cohort part is easy with Zur as the commander, just tutor Arcane Adaptation and you have another Ally and an infinite combo.

Myr Turbine could be great as well. After playing it, Zur tutors Animate Artifact, Ensoul Artifact, or Tezzeret's Touch and puts it on Turbine, which then goes infinite with Intruder Alarm. Same idea with Summoning Station and Throne of Empires

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
