Murderous Compulsion Discussion

The Raven's Crime's have been working well, especially with Dakmor Salvage, but I'm not liking the Underworld Connections. They really want to be in a more control-oriented deck under perform. Ob Nixilis Reignited is fun and a good top for the curve, I'm just debating running 2 or 3 because I don't have any way to reliably fetch him later in the game.

For now I've swapped back to these changes for game night:

-3 Underworld Connections

===========

+1 Alms of the Vein

+2 Murderous Compulsion

Gurmag Angler is great for this deck. It's sort of control, and control needs a finisher. Also useful would be Tragic Slip. Cut True-Faith Censer, your deck has 0 humans and there's no upside. Chainer's Edict and it's counterparts are helpful. Murderous Compulsion and Reduce to Ashes are utter trash. Dusk Legion Zealot and March of the Drowned are useful. You don't need many creatures. Basically cut all of them for the Zealot and the Angler. Hierophant's Chalice is some solid ramp. Increase the number of Shard of Broken Glass. Lastly, add Phyrexian Rager.

DemonDragonJ, you must be disappointed every set then - Contract Killing, Lethal Sting, Torment of Venom, Vanquish the Weak, Tidy Conclusion, Certain Death, Murderous Compulsion are all worse cards than the ones you listed, in just the last year. It is almost as if Wizards prints removal like that based on the needs of the Limited environment in the set.

I play a casual blue black that utilizes a lot of "freeze/stall" spells as I like to call them. Creatures like Frost Lynx, Watertrap Weaver, and Fogwalker; Harbinger of the Tides. Enchantments such as Malfunction, Ice Over, and Claustrophobia. Play instants like Send to Sleep, Chilling Grasp, and Ojutai's Breath. As far as black...Deathstroke, Assassinate, Royal Assassin, Rathi Assassin, Stalking Assassin, Murderous Compulsion. Throw some nasty flyers in the mix and you're sure to piss off your friends.

Ichor Slick is kinda cool. I'll have to do some domino-effecting to scrape up some Lightning Bolts, though. And I don't seem to play Murderous Compulsion well.

However, you should have two Cathartic Reunions set aside for me that will replace the Dangerous Wagers. On the other hand, Death Denied and Fireball may be better sideboaded, leaving three slots to start playtesting Ichor Slick. ty

Lose 2x Dangerous Wager for some early game control...such as Murderous Compulsion, Ichor Slick or Lightning Bolt?

Teniendo en cuenta que la gran mayoria de tus cartas terminan en el cementerio, yo cambiaria los removals por cartas con madness como por ej:

Murderous Compulsion, Dark Withering, Psychotic Episode, Alms of the Vein

en ese sentido, Deepcavern Imp podria reemplazar al Putrid. Aunque tambien Arrogant Wurm o Basking Rootwalla podrian funcionar en su lugar.

El Seal of Doom parece bastante injugable, pero siendo un encantamiento, puede terminar en tu mano con la Commune.

Alguna Mortuary Mire no me parece que este de mas, por si se te cae un Gurmag al cementerio o si te matan la 3/3 vuela.
