Malfegor

Legendary Creature — Demon Dragon

Flying

When Malfegor enters the battlefield, discard your hand. Each opponent sacrifices a creature for each card discarded this way.

Malfegor Discussion

pizzagod13 on (R/B) Malfegor EDH deck suggestions/help

1 month ago

I built this Malfegor edh deck recently. Mostly because it is a Demon Dragon and the conflux art looks sick. Also, not caring about my hand is an interesting dynamic, which would make it vastly different then my other decks.

Anyway, I was looking for any tips or suggestions on improving it. I am on a semi-budget so nothing to pricey (preferably mostly under 5 dollars, but willing to go over that sometimes).

Thank you for any help you can provide!

The It's a Demon Dragon, what more do you want?!?.

Befall the Titan

Legendary Enchantment - Saga

  • : Create a 6/6 black and red Legendary Creature token named Malfegor , Hand of Bolas with the Demon and Dragon subtypes. It has flying and haste.

  • : Destroy up to three target non-land permanents you don't control.

  • : Destroy all non-land permanents. Each player loses life equal to the number of permanents they owned that were destroyed in this way.


  • 1st Saga embodies Malfegor's sheer brutality and power.

  • 2nd Saga embodies his war across Alara as he invades Esper to go on a brutal genocide, guided by none other than Nicol Bolas himself.

  • 3rd Saga embodies his vast swath of destruction and ultimate demise on Bant. This stage can literally cause you to lose the game if your life total is too low or you have too many permanents. Your greed and pride can undo you, just as Malfegor's did.

Let's do that again :) Saga depicting the full arc of a prominent character in Magic's history. Try to focus on someone who isn't very well known / popular. It's tempting to do Urza or Bolas because they are known by all. Let's try to stick with a lesser thought of, but equally important character!

You can, if you like, create custom sort categories by adding a # in your edit list (eg. "1x City of Brass #Land") and then setting >Edit >Default category >Custom

Don't forget Thraximundar and Warstorm Surge ...

Here are some houses:

Bloodtracker ... must have imo

Herald of Secret Streams ... where'd this go?

Dack's Duplicate ... +1/+1 clone

Spark Double ... +1/+1 clone

Viscera Seer ... tier 1 version of Carrion Feeder

Mulldrifter ... if is too much then play this

Treasonous Ogre ... seems good

Harvester of Souls ... + Damnation ?

Reef Worm ... endless worms

Spawning Pit ... you can sacrifice the Spawn tokens to recoup 1/2 the value if they're wiped

Drana, Liberator of Malakir ... yes... anything that lets you ignore the throne is amazing

Yahenni, Undying Partisan ... it never leaves the board so expect 10+/10+

Toothy, Imaginary Friend ... yes

Midnight Reaper ... yes

Burnished Hart ... do not underestimate this

Goblin Bombardment ... yes

You could also try playing some big beefs that are wipe oriented like...

Ogre Slumlord

Overseer of the Damned

Ob Nixilis, Unshackled

Revel in Riches

If you count Merciless Executioner , Innocent Blood , etc, with wipes like Damnation , etc, you have 12 wipes and 5 removal... which is probably too much control.

To play aggressively, Marchesa needs evasive creatures with double strike ...or maybe even...

Core Prowler ... maybe

Flesh-Eater Imp ... I have one, you should try it out

Grafted Exoskeleton ... sacrifice might be nice

Viral Drake ... proliferating your +1/+1 counters would be pretty sweet

...Keep in mind Infect replaces damage so either make it a core theme or only play the ones that can get to 10 Infect quickly.

Demons would also be pretty sweet:

Archfiend of Depravity ... wipe

Defiler of Souls ... make them sacrifice

Demon of Wailing Agonies ... make them sacrifice

Havoc Demon ... wipe

Indulgent Tormentor ... another Bloodgift Demon

Kothophed, Soul Hoarder ... draw to get off the throne?

Krav, the Unredeemed ... seems good

Lord of the Void ... betrayal

Malfegor ... wipe?

Rakdos, the Showstopper ... wipe

Ravenous Demon  Flip... sacrifice Marchesa or take the 9 to get off the throne?

Reaper from the Abyss ... removal

Rune-Scarred Demon ... tutor

Silent-Blade Oni ... betrayal

Liliana's Contract ... hilarous

Happy to help! A Malfegor deck sounds awesome by the way!

Thank you for the comment! This has been one of my favorite decks to play to date. I wanted to make some updates to it and you have provided valuable feedback. I am considering changing it to a Malfegor deck focusing on discard and mutual destruction.

Hello, to make this deck faster I'd cut like 2-3 lands Blackcleave Cliffs and one of Mountain and Swamp for Birds of Paradise , Deathrite Shaman and Nature's Lore .

For Dragons, which I guess you want win with I'd use ones with lower CMC since they're easier to cast and provide cool effects:

For planeswalkers I'd strongly suggest trying out Sarkhan, Fireblood

Minathia on Its a Graveyard Smash

I wanted to stay away from as much combo potential as I could, so I left out Necrotic Ooze .

Torment of Hailfire is always a good card, but I wanted to stay more on the creature plan if I can.

Malfegor is awesome, I need to find a cut for him I think.

I stayed away from the Megrim effects as I wanted this to not have a heavy discard focus (you'll see I cleand up a good amount of the discard). The goal is more of play good threats, and evenutally when they and other creatures die, bring out the commander for a second round.

Cut: Tree of Perdition , Smallpox , & Ill-Gotten Gains

Looks like fun. Just wanted to put my comments in a place you can find them easier.

Not a fan of Ill-Gotten Gains , it allows your opponents to get back the good cards you forced them to discard earlier in the game.

Strongarm Tactics and Smallpox are card disadvantage for you. You lose two cards and your opponents each lose one.

Tree of Perdition seems bad, but might be pretty good with negative power creatures like Death's Shadow .

Adds? Necrotic Ooze , because activated abilities happen Angrath, the Flame-Chained , Burglar Rat , and Arterial Flow make your opponents' discards happen Sire Of Insanity and Mindslicer are pretty mean, but at least everyone is stuck in topdeck mode. If you want to be "fair" you could play Awaken the Erstwhile so at least people get some creatures when they discard.

Malfegor , enables your discard and kills stuff.

Liliana's Caress , and the more expensive Megrim , Waste Not , and Geth's Grimoire , since you are making people discard you should trigger something in the process.

Torment of Hailfire .... Oh, I made you discard your hand and you have no permanents left? I guess this is a Fireball .
