Daedalus19876 on Chainer, The Re-animator

2 weeks ago

A few things :)

1) I'd very much run Hero's Downfall over Ruinous Path.

2) No Toxic Deluge?? It's (IMO) one of the strongest black cards ever printed.

3) I would suggest Rune-Scarred Demon over Diabolic Tutor. It can be reanimated repeatedly with Chainer.

4) Death Wind and Chill to the Bone seem like pretty weak removal here. Have you considered Malicious Affliction, or something of that ilk?

5) I'm not convinced you have enough draw effects. Have you considered Phyrexian Arena, Grim Haruspex, and Ancient Craving-esque effects?

6) Your curve is relatively high, and I'm not really a fan of Manalith and other 3-mana rocks. I'd focus more on cheaper rocks such as Mana Crypt and Mana Vault to accelerate Chainer, as well as Jet Medallion to make your spells cheaper.

7) Mono-black decks always love a copy of Contamination or Infernal Darkness if you feel like adding a cruel touch.

This is my mono-black deck, if you feel like taking a look for anything you might add that I've forgotten:

Shinwizzles on Whisper, Blood Liturgist EDH: To Make an Omelette

2 months ago

SynergyBuild, thanks for the thoughtful recommendations! There's no denying that the Triskelion and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed combo is useful, and would fit nicely into this deck, but I already have it in another one of my more competitive decks. I wanted this one to be pretty casual for the most part, which is also why I avoided putting too many tutoring cards in there.

As for the 0-drops such as Memnite, Shield Sphere, Ornithopter, etc.: I'd rather focus on creatures that can generate tokens like Abhorrent Overlord, Sifter of Skulls, and Sengir Autocrat for the sac bait. Since CMC isn't an issue for Whisper, Blood Liturgist's ability, there'd be no point to include the 0-drops that would only be worth a single sacrifice, and not necessarily be worth bringing back with Whisper, Blood Liturgist to sacrifice again.

I do think that most of the cards you suggested be cut still have pretty valid reasons to be present in the deck. Most of those cards are either for spot removal Malicious Affliction, control Grave Pact, ETB/upon death triggers Kokusho, the Evening Star, discard effects Call the Bloodline, or token generation Noosegraf Mob. I mean, sure, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger doesn't really fit in the deck, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to potentially cheat out an Eldrazi titan on like, turn 4.

I could probably drop Ancient Craving for one of the more efficient cards like Night's Whisper though. I really like Corpse Connoisseur too. Diabolic Intent fits the theme of the deck, so I might swap that in for one of the other tutoring cards. Withering Boon seems pretty great too. Counterspells in black are hilarious, and often unexpected. Toxic Deluge could very well end up replacing Damnation, because you're right, it is pretty good. Just not sure if paying that much life is always worth the effect.

Thanks again for all the great suggestions! I've definitely still got some work to do on this deck.

SynergyBuild on Whisper, Blood Liturgist EDH: To Make an Omelette

This deck I feel can be made into a powerful combo deck, by abusing Grave Titan effects with Thornbite Staff, and a few other comboes as well.

The main cards to add for this effect would be:

Triskelion and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed for the most straightforward combo, and the Buried Alive you have to put them in, preferably with Rune-Scarred Demon. You recur the Demon fetching Vindicate, then bring the Mikaeus/Triskelion Combo out by sacing the Demon. This means Buried Alive can win the game with the commander as a one card combo. Phantasmagorian can be used if you end up with any number of the combo pieces in hand.

Other cards to add include Imperial Seal, Grim Tutor, Diabolic Intent, Culling the Weak, Dimir Machinations, Corpse Connoisseur, Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, Memnite, Shield Sphere, Ornithopter, Grim Monolith, Phyrexian Walker, Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, Defense Grid, Dark Confidant, etc.

Some cards I'd just say to look at, but not definitely include are as goes: Toxic Deluge (The best board wipe in the game), Read the Bones, Night's Whisper, Withering Boon, Sign in Blood, etc.

Cards you can drop:

Skirsdag High Priest

Gray Merchant of Asphodel

Kokusho, the Evening Star

Noosegraf Mob

Overseer of the Damned

Skirk Ridge Exhumer

Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger

Vindictive Lich

Malicious Affliction

Revel in Riches

Phyrexian Arena

Black Market

Call the Bloodline

Dictate of Erebos

Grave Pact

Ancient Craving

Scathain on Now You See Me

Illusionist's Bracers would greatly help out your commander's ability. Also, consider Training Grounds. You could also seriously use a Sol Ring and probably a Thran Dynamo to help accelerate your ability to use Oona. You also might want to consider Notorious Throng and Stinkdrinker Bandit to take advantage of the fact that you are creating a bunch of flying faerie rogues which are presumably attacking, especially the latter.

I'm not sure whether Wydwen, the Biting Gale is quite worth it in your deck, unless I'm missing something, so I'd consider dropping it.

Catalog also seems a bit weak without madness or graveyard recursion. Consider Glimmer of Genius, Hieroglyphic Illumination, Thieves' Fortune, or Thirst for Knowledge instead.

Violet Pall is a bit too much mana for what you are getting even in a faerie deck. Consider Reckless Spite, Malicious Affliction, Eyeblight's Ending, or Doom Blade instead.

elgosu1337 on Yer a Wizard, Inalla

Isochron Scepter and Dramatic Reversal would allow you to repeatedly tap your wizards to deal damage with Inalla's ability.

Mind Over Matter draws your entire deck with Arcanis. Flash with Laboratory Maniac could win easily from there.

Intruder Alarm could combo off or just give you lots of wizard tapping whenever your wizards and tokens enter the battlefield.

Panharmonicon gets more value out of your wizards and lets you make more copies. Cloudstone Curio and Ghostly Flicker lets you reuse your wizards. You could draw a lot of cards by sacrificing copied tokens to Morbid Curiosity.

Timestream Navigator can gain you two extra turns for an initial 7 mana investment.

Stonybrook Banneret helps your costs.

Magus of the Mind probably won't net you much value unless you have opponents playing storm decks.

Lunar Mystic isn't very efficient for drawing cards. You would probably draw more with Kindred Discovery.

Venser's Journal doesn't help you that much for the mana cost.

Body Double, Memory Plunder, and Spelltwine depend too much on what's in graveyards. Reins of Power is also too situational.

Silumgar's Command might be too costly usually. Negate, Essence Scatter, Disdainful Stroke are low CMC counterspells and are generally effective in most games.

There's a lot of good spot removal in black, such as Tragic Slip, Malicious Affliction, and Victim of Night.

Mass bounce effects should work well with this deck since you can tap your wizards for effects before bouncing, and then recast them for more tokens and effects. Devastation Tide, Coastal Breach, Wash Out, Inundate are some good ones.

Sudden Spoiling is good for more Polymorphist's Jest effects. Arcane Lighthouse might be helpful for untargetable creatures. Venser, Shaper Savant can deal with uncounterable spells.

Blasphemous Act and Vandalblast are great red boardwipes to include.

Once you have enough good spells, Kess, Dissident Mage is worth adding back.

Fireball is inefficient as wincon/removal compared to Comet Storm or Exsanguinate. You could try Magus of the Coffers for extra mana if you want to go down that route. Dualcaster Mage could copy your own or other players' game-winning spells.

Opal Palace is good for this commander

You need more player interaction too, it seems like you're playing singleplayer EDH. You need to get more targeted removal. Doom Blade, Go for the Throat, Malicious Affliction, Bone Splinters, Putrefy and Anguished Unmaking are all good, but there are probably a few in green and white that I missed. Run Abzan Charm

Read the Bones is an amazing draw card.

Zulaport Cutthroat and Blood Artist can get a lot of work done.

Cryptolith Rite is really good when you have a lot of creatures.

You also may want to look at Contagion Engine, Contagion Clasp and proliferate cards in general. Those can be fun.

Trostani, Selesnya's Voice will win games

Also, look at cards that give you life when creatures enter the battlefield, like Healer of the Pride.

Tendershoot Dryad, Mycoloth, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Winding Constrictor.
