Murderous Cut Discussion

Phyrexian Obliterator, is actually not that difficult to play around, Dismember, a Revolt Fatal Push or a Morbid Tragic Slip will all kill it, without triggering it's ability as will a Delve Murderous Cut, which will also kill Eidolon of the Great Revel without triggering it. Also the Eidolon normally appears in burn lists, just take the two damage if necessary and move on, throw some lifegain in the deck like Alms of the Vein or Sovereign's Bite and play through.

If you want removal on a creature then Necropolis Fiend would fit your bill. Or, since your using Dredge cards anyway, you could try Necroplasm, there are lots of ways to add +1/+1 counters... To use Vengeful Pharaoh as a removal tactic would require three copies, you also need a spell like Cathartic Reunion or Thought Scour to kick it off and the reason Dredge is powerful now is Creeping Chill.

I'm still not clear on what it is you are aiming to do, what is your win condition? Is this a graveyard (dredge, reanimation) deck, or a pyromancer (high spell count) deck, or is it a fast mana deck using Dowsing Dagger? At present your deck is like a mash of 3 different ideas, the best decks are those which are consistent and have a singular goal.

I happen to have a deck that uses Phyrexian Obliterator, want to know the funny thing, it's a Devotion deck, I want the Obliterator as an enabler for Gray Merchant of Asphodel which is the primary wincon, it looks like this Sweet (black) devotion. Essentially it's a zombie tribal deck, which leverages the devotion mechanic. That single sentence description is what you want to have, for your own deck.

Sorry for the long comments

For subtractions I would remove: Council's Judgment The 3 for 1 potential is nice but you don't have full control of the spell. Plus you have plenty of removal. I'd cut it or run Grasp of Fate in its place

Cut / Ribbons You are playing this for Ribbons but Torment of Hailfire is just better and requires less hoop jumping. And you have Skull Storm, Exsanguinate and Debt to the Deathless. In fact, Skull Storm can probably be cut too.

Entreat the Angels I like this card but not in this deck.

Insult / Injury You have VERY few damage based sources and that makes this card a dead draw a lot of times.

Jaya's Immolating Inferno Despite two 3 CMC commanders this may be hard to cast sometimes. This would be much better suited as a Comet Storm or Fireball

Rakdos's Return I just think this spell suffers from sorcery speed. Your experience may differ but I have always found I had better things to do with my turn.

Commune with Lava I have a thing against the 'cast it or it's gone forever' card advantage that red gets so this is just prejudice. If you like it, obviously ignore me.

Murderous Cut It isn't bad. Maybe this is drawing unwarranted hate. Potentially costing 1 is pretty sweet.

Jaya Ballard She has three very meaningful abilities but she is so hard to cast reliably in a 3 color deck. Again, your mileage may vary.

Anyways, I love this deck and I hope I helped you with my suggestions. Obviously, I am no expert and my opinions aren't gospel. I hope I didn't come across as rude in these messages either. If I come up with more ideas I will post them later. Good luck!

You thought about running Geth's Verdict, Vendetta, Price of Fame, Entomb, Victim of the night, Go for the Throat, Snuff Out, Cast Down, Bile Blight, Murderous Cut, Sudden Death, Devour in Shadow

Revel in Riches can also be a good win con since your focusing on targetted removal or creatures dying.

Hope that helps!

I would take Cast Down or Murderous Cut over Go for the Throat since it misses Hollow One.

JKRice on budget grixis delvormancer

I’m not sure if you’re taking suggestions but I have them anyway.

1: I realize this is budget but grixis delver really works best with Snapcaster Mage. Actually, snap is what makes the deck competitive. Mission Briefing is a budget version of that so I’m not sure if you want to put that in there or not.

2: Thought Scour has no synergy in the deck except with Murderous Cut, and cut is hard to cast early without having already resolved a scour, therefore, it would be beneficial to either A. Take out both and add in 4 Opt, a Terminate, and a Fatal Push, or B. Take out bedlam reveled for another delve fattie, like Gurmag Angler or Tasigur, the Golden Fang to give this a more tempo-beatdown feel. In the current state of things, if you don’t have cut in hand, scour is only beneficial targeting the opponent.

Cereal_Killer on draw/discard burn

For the format of the deck put casual, since it's not modern legal, but, I assume, you want to use as much modern cards as possible.

Then, I also assume that you don't want to spend a lot, so I'll try to propose low cost cards.

You have 16 things that do things when your opponent discards something, but only 10 cards that force your opponent to discard and 8 of them are easily destroyable creatures that also cost a bit too much mana for what you want them to do.

I'd suggest cards like Burning Inquiry, Inquisition of Kozilek, Duress, Despise, Raven's Crime to make your opponent discard

I'd also suggest cards like Dream Salvage if you want need to draw cards or Crypt Incursion if you want to gain something

Personally I don't like Vile Consumption. It works also on your creatures and does nothing if your opponent doesn't play creatures or has only big things (if I have a 5/5 I'd pay one life cause it will make you lose 5). Do you want something that lets you destroy some creatures? Use Fatal Push, Murderous Cut, Doom Blade, Lightning Bolt or stuff like that

Since you make your opponent discard and have only few cards in hand, you could add Shrieking Affliction nd Liliana's Caress

Last thing: 25 lands are too much. Just reduce them and add some shock lands (Watery Grave, Blood Crypt, Steam Vents), or check lands (Drowned Catacomb, Dragonskull Summit, Sulfur Falls). And, if they work well, you could also cut Thaumatic Compass  Flip
