Hey, looks good, nice job and upgrade making adds/cuts :)

The next place to look to make some upgrades is the manabase. Command Tower is included in the Madness precon and is one of the best lands in Commander for mulicolored decks. Other budget less than $3 each lands to consider are Dragonskull Summit is the Rakdos Check land, Jund Panorama can be saced to search for a Swamp or Mountain basic land, Tainted Peak and Foreboding Ruins are good with lots of Swamps in the manabase.

K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth is included in the Madness precon and it's busted with Vilis, Broker of Blood . Krrik is also good with Razaketh, the Foulblooded and Pestilence Demon as well as other Demons. Shadowborn Apostle costs no mana to cast when you control Krrik instead can pay 2 life. Activating an Apostle also can cost no mana instead 2 life. Most Demons have in their casting costs which can instead be paid for with 4 life. Krrik could replace Malfegor .

Fair enough. Though if I were to cut cards for your suggestions, what would you cut/add? Also would Malfegor be a good addition, as we're trying to dump demons to the bin? (P.S. I don't really like Wake the Dead for this deck, looks like a fun card for an ETB deck tho!)

I am so glad to see a dragon angel, but why does he not have red in his mana cost? Malfegor is black and red, as befitting of a demon dragon.

Also, does anyone here believe that Sol resembles a goat or satyr more than either a dragon or an angel?

FunnyDuck I love to see the changes you are making in the deck, it's allowing me to see a lot of different cards and letting me sort of determine how I want to go about making a Chainer deck myself. Have you thought about a card like Malfegor ? I remembered him from when I was running a dragon tribal and thought he might make a good addition due to him being a pretty big threat on the board, a nice little board wipe while also throwing cards into your graveyard. Don't see this guy talked about a lot honestly.

Jund has Lord Windgrace as a solid option that likes discarding his things, although not sure how much he wants Bone Miser .

Malfegor would benefit from the Bone Miser .

Olivia, Mobilized for War could too.

Varina, Lich Queen seems like an obvious option.

Essentially any deck that can support wheeling and would want Archfiend of Ifnir would want Bone Miser too. Probably. Depends on your competitiveness level I guess.

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

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!
