Mogis, God of Slaughter Discussion

The_Fallen_Duke on Mathas Curse

The focus on curses seems like a fun concept, I guess you enjoy table politcs to make the best out of the deck.

Regarding the cuts, I think the first thing you need to consider is what you want this deck to be: should it revolve around curses and auras or would you like it to be a Stax deck?

Also, there are a couple of cards that, although good in a vacuum, do not seem to add much to either strategies: first I noticed are Assemble the Legion , Mogis, God of Slaughter , Bounty Hunter , Tainted Remedy (maybe I missed their role in your strategy).

I can see a lot of removal and tax spells: most of those are good cards, but I think you should pick only some among those with pretty much the same effect (maybe choose those with the lowest CMC and/or most versatility).

In terms of lands, in the final version of the deck I'd say that 38-39 could be enough looking at your mana curve.

(I'm far from being a pro deck-builder or player myself, so pick everything I wrote with a grain of salt)

Prophet of Mogis

Creature - Minotaur Cleric

, : Sacrifice Prophet of Mogis. Search your library for a card named Mogis, God of Slaughter, reveal it and put it into your hand. Shuffle your library.

Mogis demands sacrifice from his audience.


Make another Prophet for any of the Gods of Theros, with an appropriate activated ability to tutor out their God.

Snap157 on Any ideas for Xantcha Politics?

2 weeks ago

if you do Xantcha, know that she DOES NOT work with Mogis, God of Slaughter, because the person controlling her can just sacrifice her. I would go for political strategy, using things like Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor, Disrupt Decorum, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, No Mercy/Dread, Maddening Imp/Nettling Imp, Victory Chimes, Rite of the Raging Storm

Add in wipes like Blasphemous Act, Damnation, Fire Covenant, Last One Standing, and Decree of Pain

With Xantcha is you get infinite mana you can kill someone with her ability, so I would add in Basalt Monolith with Rings of Brighthearth, and she also comboes well with Neheb, the Eternal and Heartstone.

Hope this helps!

Hey Rakdos control is a really fun strategy, when I play it I usually do a "group slug" strategy to where it is just punishing to play against and some of those strategies work very well with Kaevrvek. Cards like Vial Smasher the Fierce and Mogis, God of Slaughter do a great job of this for not too much mana.

Mogis, God of Slaughter may be another good option.

Awoken_Leviathan on The Vengeful Golem

Lightning Reaver is indeed very slow, but if I have Doubling Season out or I give it Infect it kills all my enemies and forces them to attack me. A problem I ran into in our last group game after I killed one person and the rest of them kept me locked out via not attacking me and using counterspells.

Life's Finale is run mostly for the secondary effect as my group runs plenty of things like Laboratory Maniac and Mogis, God of Slaughter where it is best to get rid of them before they even hit the board.

Actually, griffstick, I thought about it, I wanted to do Discard again. Mogis, God of Slaughter wasn't enough for me, so I'm reverting back to Olivia, Mobilized for War. Also, you got some really good ideas for the part; almost Hatebear-esque... I wonder what I can do for 's half for Discard... Also, I might want to find some support for Olivia 2.0 that isn't keyword based, & in as well... You basically inspired me for the half. I'll see what I can also find for Rona as well unless Etrata's last ability shuffles her into the library as a mandatory cost; only then would I have to change my commander a 2nd time... BTW, I wanted to use this deck as inspiration for my own, but only if you give the okay; I have one other needing the AOK for inspiration, but how do I even do that?
