Mind Rot Discussion

bigsampz69 on Grixis 8-rack

In my opinion you dont have enough discard for this in the list. 8 discard spells is not gonna cut through the huge amount of card advantage that's in standard, let alone guaranteeing you even get it out. I dont count davriel as a direct discard spell because he's also your wincon and won't be able to minus on him every turn.

I'd look for slots for Vicious Rumors , Mind Rot , and consider Eldest Reborn and Vraska's Contempt .

I'd cut the Ritual of Soot , Angrath, the Flame-Chained , 1 Spark Double , Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip.

I'd also add 4 ElderSpell to the sideboard for the Niv's and Dovin.

In general I think these changes would make your mana more consistently black, give you more consistent discard, and kind of rein in the list to focus on 1 thing. The goal of 8-rack/Pox/etc is to literally have them on 0 cards by turn 3 or so.

I'm not sure this deck can be cEDH, but here I go. Toxic Deluge , Natural State , Fatal Push , Dismember , Berserk , Beast Within , Bane of Progress . I'd pull Tangle Wire because it doesn't seem to be doing anything in this deck, as you want to cast your commander T2. Icy Manipulator is bad, and so is Mind Rot . I'd also pull Naturalize , Price of Fame , Blackmail , Despise , and Duress . Doom Blade is really awkward sometimes (I prefer Vendetta anyways), and I'd drop the Murder . For slowing down your opponents, I'd add Torpor Orb , Root Maze , Nether Void , No Mercy , Chalice of the Void , Grafdigger's Cage , Leyline of the Void . Maybe even Hum of the Radix . Just a point- Murderous Cut is better the more fetches you run Sorry about the long post, just really want this deck to work!

BS-T on Lost - a challenge of ...

1 month ago

OK so I'd not been active on TO for a little while and after clearing up a bunch of notifications I popped over to my list of decks to find.... this nonsense:

I'd titled the list: "Lost".

Now. I'm pretty sure I've only stuck a 5c commander into the list because I had to put something, however, I now have no memory or idea what I was thinking of or where this was going - any thoughts on what my connection was!!??

frosthammer_eden on Karn's Surveillance

Don't be afraid to put more than one copy of a good card(Namely Karn, Scion of Urza who is you win condition). Mind Rot Should definitely be taken out as it isn't a very good card in the first place and does nothing for your deck. Drill Bit could be replaced with Duress . Also I'd definitely switch Thought Collapse for more Sinister Sabotage as it fits your deck way more. Gate Colossus will also 9 out of 10 times be a 6 or 7 mana 8/8 so not great value, maybe add another surveiler instead.

Loizo on Bolas brawl 0.1?

Hi, at first glance the deck looks good but you are missing a few key pieces.

Here's a few weird cards : Omniscience and Sunbird's Invocation - really fun cards but you are not a jodah big mana deck, no reduction of costs and no green to ramp... I should build that :) Mind Rot and Vicious Rumors - not efficient enough and even completely useless in some cases. I would replace those with

if you want to 1v1 : counterspells and big threats like Demanding Dragon Etali, Primal Storm and Niv-Mizzet, Parun

If you want to multi : boardwipes and recurrent threats like Cry of the Carnarium Jaya's Immolating Inferno Nezahal, Primal Tide .

But three colours decks have such a great number of deck building choices that you can get lost in it... It's amazing. I would suggest (most powerful deck I think) grixis spells with a lot of removal to kill later with flipped bolas or combos Primal Amulet  Flip and explosion//expansion

or more fun, reanimator with Isareth the Awakener and Dead Revels , Dire Fleet Daredevil

Duke.Fleed on Rats

There are a few options here. If you want to stay in mono black, you can look into dredge: Stinkweed Imp and Golgari Thug and Darkblast . In order to get these cards into your graveyard in the first place, you will need to include cards that allow you to discard. If you have the money for it: Collective Brutality is a fantastic way to do it. If budget is more of a concern then something like Dark Deal is ok but not great. You could always use Rotting Rats to make your self discard (its also fine if you mill it, since you can just unearth it).

One thing I just noticed is that you've got over 60 cards in the deck. It would probably be best if you kept to that 60 card minimum. This will increase the consistency of the deck overall. One way you could do this, if you like having a variety of different cards, is play a card like Mausoleum Secrets . This will allow you to just play one copy of niche cards like Distress , Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, and Go for the Throat . You can also cut cards like Mind Rot and Ratcatcher (3 mana for that discard ability is too expensive, and 6 mana is definitely too expensive). If it were me though, I would just cut all the extraneous cards, not even bother with the Mausoleum Secrets and just focus on the rats.

If you wanted to do multi color (it will be more expensive though). I would recommend a few cards. Red-black is the route I would take. You get cards like Faithless Looting and Experimental Frenzy . The looting is good for dumping cards into your graveyard. Frenzy is a combo card that allows you to keep playing cards off the top of your library as long as you have mana (and as long as it isn't a second land). If you want to go the frenzy route, I would recommend Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx as a good way to make a bunch of mana and cast a bunch of rats. This is kind of a different way to play the deck and might be too muddy with the self mill plan. So I would either choose the mill or the frenzy plan.

Let me know if you have more questions. This deck looks rad.

xaarvaxus on Rakdos, Lord of Riots Prototype Deck

Defeat isn't going to hit much in a game of commander, I'd run Terminate and/or Dreadbore instead.

I don't know that Mind Rot will do much for this deck. If there is incidental discard tied to an effect that deals damage, then go for it, or in the case of Syphon Mind, has card draw attached.

I would second the 'not enough land' comment from Hades above. I don't think you want to go as high as 40-42 lands but 37-38 is closer to what you'll want/need for a mana curve with a higher end. More mana rocks as well; Coldsteel Heart, Sol Ring, etc. Opaline Unicorn should probably be Darksteel Ingot or Commander's Sphere.

Sibsig Muckdraggers should be cut. If you need to get creatures back from the graveyard, I'd use Phyrexian Reclamation. I wouldn't worry about forcing in zombies for Shepherd of Rot, you just need it to ding opponents for 1 to cast your commander.

All Is Dust could work for you with the emphasis on Devoid creatures.

EskkeMo on Mono black

I do notice that you have this as a mono-black aggro deck, but I have noticed most of your creatures are on the higher tip of the scale for cmc. It is generally for a aggro deck to have a low cost, decks like that have a very fast pace to them in order to finish the game before the enemy board state gets too large for you to handle. I personally suggest the following for creatures: Diregraf Ghoul Cabal Evangel Hired Poisoner Rat Colony and finally Two-Headed Zombie

All of those creatures are below a total of 4 cmc, and you are able to have as many rat colony cards in a deck as you like, so they can compensate for the amount of creatures you have in the deck. Your land count does not need to be tampered with, 20-24 is the golden number for a 60 card deck.

A bit of aggression you can give to someone by spells rather than creatures can be from cards like Mind Rot or Duress, duress being you have that in already, both can be cheap but controlling what your opponent can play and draw.

Hopefully my contributions do assist in the long run, if not, its still my 2 cents.
